4.06 Cause Of Violence


Where wealth without work be,
And commerce without morality; [1]

Where pleasure without conscience be,
And science without humanity; [2]

Where knowledge without character be,
And duty without modesty; [3]

Where worship without sacrifice be,
And freedom without duty; [4]

Where enemies without conscience be,
And ideals without humility; [5]

Where politics without principles be,
And work with ego dominatingly; [6]

Where oppression with democracy be,
And principles with arrogance fully; [7]

Where achievement without truth be,
And action with hate overpoweringly; [8]

Where belief with stubbornness be,
And humanity without responsibility. [9]
