Wealth without work - Inheritance taxes? The government didn’t work for that money, either.

Pleasure without conscience - Pleasure without concomitant pain, the philosophy of the masochist.

Knowledge without character - Don’t forget ignorance without character, as seen in higher education.

Commerce without morality - This Note Is Legal Tender For All Debts, Public And Private. “Pecunia non olet” (”Money doesn’t stink” - Emperor Vespagian, when criticized over imposing a tax on a valuable commodity, human urine).

Science without humility - “I’ll just adjust these temperature statistics and it will prove Man Made Global Warming.” - James Hansen, GISS

Worship without sacrifice - “So what’s Israel compared to getting Obama re-elected?” - AIPAC

Politics without principle - see “dei Machiavelli, Niccolò di Bernardo.” (1469 - 1527).
