Passive Violence Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi & Arun Manilal Gandhi

Gandhi’s “Passive Violence”:

Wealth without work,

Pleasure without conscience,

Knowledge without character,

Commerce without morality,

Science without humanity,

Politics without principles,” 

Rights without responsibilities. (Arun Manilal Gandhi)

 

I am leaving out “Worship without Sacrifice”.

I agree with Ruth Anthony-Gardner and Loren Miller.

“I get all of them excepting "worship without sacrifice." I know Gandhi was big on self-sacrifice, for example never eating without first making a substantial work contribution. I'm not pro sacrifice as a moral principle. For me sacrifice is only justified as a means to an end. I don't believe in martyrdom. It's been exploited too often as a value women should internalize in order to be happily oppressed by men.”

~ Ruth Anthony Gardner http://www.atheistnexus.org/group/politics-economics-and-religion/f...

 

“Gandhi called these imbalances passive violence, which fuels the active violence of crime, rebellion, and war. He said, “We could work ’til doomsday to achieve peace and would get nowhere as long as we ignore passive violence in our world”. Arun, the grandson of Gandhi, later added an eighth blunder: Rights without responsibilities. Gandhi gave the list to Arun in 1947.”
