"Mohandas K Gandhi warned against what he called the seven social sins: 1. politics without principle, 2. wealth without work, 3. commerce without morality, 4. pleasure without conscience, 5. education without character,6. science without humanity and 7. worship without sacrifice.
"We can find common ground only by moving to a higher ground. Constituency-based politics, with its factional interests, will not lead us to higher ground. Politics has been reduced to the selfish struggle for power among competing interests and groups, instead of a process of searching for the common good."
"The moral issues at the heart of the public debate are often unrecognized and ignored or, worse yet, manipulated and twisted for politically self serving and ideological purposes. We witness the spectacle again each election year."
"The relationship between politics and morality is absolutely vital to the future."
(We Voters Need to recognize our "money corrupted politics" The more special/foreign money interest supported candidates are essentially obligated to their benefactors and not "We The People". The more the media proganda/ads, the more the obligation. IMO, Need Independent 3rd Party and Public vs. Private Interest Politicians). AL
