In challenging the unbridled accumulationof wealth, or the economic injustices and corruption of our modern world, the authordiscusses the roles of egotism, arrogance and indifference to the plight of millions whodie each year from starvation and disease. Such indifference, as well as the deteriorationof human behaviour, are rooted in the loss of values and spiritual perspectives on life.This book challenges the view that matter is the centrepiece of life – a view thatdenies spirituality, conscience and feeling. It advocates for a sensible balance betweenthe spiritual and material aspects of life as two pillars of an equitable civilization.
