Sickness in Social Life

In the conditions of the present time in these lands, I have learnt a lesson in the school of mankind’s social life and I have realized that what has allowed foreigners, Europeans, to fly towards the future on progress while it arrested us and kept us, in respect of material development, in the Middle Ages, are six dire sicknesses. The sicknesses are these: FIRSTLY: The rising to life of despair and hopelessness in social life. SECONDLY: The death of truthfulness in social and political life. THIRDLY: Love of enmity. FOURTHLY: Not knowing the luminous bonds that bind the believers to one another. FIFTHLY: Despotism, which spreads, becoming widespread as though it was various contagious diseases. SIXTHLY: Restricting endeavour to what is personally beneficial. Damascus Sermon, Said Nursi
