The Seven Modern Sins


Policies without principles
Pleasure without conscience
Wealth without work
Knowledge without character
Industry without morality
Science without humanity
Worship without sacrifice.

What stringer breastplate than a heart untainted!
Thrice is he arm’d that hath his quarrel just,
And he is naked, though locked up in steel,
Whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.
— William Shakespeare
