Gandhi's Seven Deadly Sins

In Judeo-Christian morality, the seven deadly sin are: anger, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, and sloth. Indian political and spiritual leader Mohandas Karamachand Gandhi (1869-1948) devised his own list of traits most perilous to humanity:

  1. Wealth without Work
  2. Pleasure without Conscience
  3. Science without Humanity
  4. Knowledge without Character
  5. Politics without Principle
  6. Commerce without Morality
  7. Worship without Sacrifice

The question is, "Are Gandhi's seven deadly sins still up to date for today's society?" If not, what would you add/remove/change?
