Stephen Fry’s 7 Deadly Sins
There have always been, I think, alternative ways of thinking about our goodness or badness. One way is to compare our actions to a list laid down by authority in the form of scripture or law. Another is to be a little more independent-minded and judge for ourselves our conduct, perhaps on the basis of its effects on other people. Do my actions ever hurt others, myself included, I might ask myself, do they hurt those close
to me or society or the wider world as a whole?
I’m raring to having a look at the obstacles to our individual happiness and fulfilment. And sin, trespass, wrong, transgression, error … all these words describe what you might call stumbling- blocks, impediments to our happiness and fulfilment that come from within.
7 Deadly Sins is brought to you by our esteemed friends at The Economist.
