The objectives of ANY totalitarian class of men, men in power, are the same.
Having the benefit of growing up in both systems - the communistic and the capitalistic one, and understanding the essence of the conflict of all conflicts, the ongoing fight between theistic and atheistic mentalities, I welcomed the opportunity Srila Prabhupada offered to take leave from any "ism".
Far from any bodily designations, which are dividing humans into opposing parties, turning them practically into combative animals, Srila Prabhupada demonstrated to us a way of living free of such sectarian way of life. Way of living in full dependency on REAL God, who is not anybody's property.
How many problems would be solved and could be avoided if humans would understand that we are not this body, but eternal parts of God, meant to serve Him along His personal instructions!
People with demonic mentality, claiming the proprietorship of all what was created by God, will never understand these facts. Their aim is always the same, regardless of time and historical period they are born into.
What are their objectives?
To gain control of whatever there may be. Animals can be controlled, but humans constitute a bigger challenge. Previously, various demonic rulers controlled their subordinates by gross means of manually operated weaponry, starvation or banishment. All this clearly reveals the one who inflicts such pain upon others, making him either to the hero or the culprit of the day. (It depends how the history is interpreted by later generations of demons.)
With arrival of digital age the same objective of total control can be achieved by far more sophisticated methods with the controllers remaining anonymous, represented by corrupt governments. Never before were humans controlled so massively by globally operating media, never before were human minds corrupted by such massive misinformation campaigns, implemented from the very early stage of human development, best in the kindergarten, where children, estranged from their parents, learn to glide with their tiny fingers along the tablet screens, absorbing images well prepared for them even before they can read a single word.
Control of the thoughts and emotions of any human, these are the objectives of those who firmly believe that human being is a mere collection of chemicals. Even they claim that these chemicals came about by chance, they know well that this "chance" has its origin somewhere, the origin they so eagerly try to deny and imitate.
"Imitating God" is the name of the game and this game is played since creation of this universe. As matter of fact this world was created for this purpose as a playground for those who decided to imitate God. Some, very few, are realizing their mistake and want to go back home back to their origin in order to live in harmony with God again. Most however remain in their conditioned stage, ready to defy God's supremacy any time they get a chance.
And so the small are doomed to suffer under the rulership of the big ones, being under the illusion to be free, ready to vote for another rascal who will cheat them even in worse fashion than the previous one.
There is no more need to threaten the public by means of physical punishment. The demons learned well how to take over human's mind by thorough media indoctrination and how to weaken everybody by excessive sense gratification being advertised and pushed upon the confused population.
Being flooded by disinformations, average citizen doesn't care any more what is said, and is concerned with the immediate gratification of his senses.
Bereft of any human values or impulses which stimulate some sort of intelligence, humans quickly degenerate into passively consuming fools whose senses are trained to accept "reality" only through the screens of their digital gadgets.
In order to eliminate any idea of independent thought or initiative, FEAR is essential tool in the hands of demoniac people. Not being able to blow fear by dint of mystic powers into the hearts of those they wish to control, as did the demons of the past, today's atheists use the achievements of the scientists who serve well their purposes. With the great invisible virus arriving finally on the scene, what wonderful ally the anonymous controllers got!
Now everybody can be afraid of this invisible enemy, which can appear any time anywhere. The great virus is causing that the foolish citizens take shelter exactly where demons expect them to do so.
Now the like-to-be rulers of the world don't have to force anybody to follow their schemes. The stupidified population will take shelter in them on their own, exactly in the way sheep line up in front of the slaughterhouse.
Whose fault it is that their "freedom" is now restricted, their businesses go bankrupt being swallowed by few big corporations, their children have their faces covered by worthless piece of cloth, not being able to laugh?
It is all for their protection, they were told by those who decided to lock them down, close their mouth, close the borders at their will, and obstruct their movements any time they want while having them connected to their media chanells, feeding them informations they want them to know. What more could a totalitarian government wish for? Whoever owns the paper money printing machine owns the world, so they believe, bankrupting and blackmailing whole governments by worthless paper currency.
Fearlessly, Srila Prabhupada revealed to us the corrupted nature of demoniac leaders already 50 years ago, quoting Krsna's words in full faith.
Krsna Himself, being the ultimate controller of all demoniac mentalities, is speaking frankly in Bhagavad-gita about such personalities. How accurate are His words spoken thousands of years ago in the today's context!
“Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in them. “
“They say that this world is unreal, that there is no foundation and that there is no God in control. It is produced of sex desire, and has no cause other than lust. “
“Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world. “
“The demoniac, taking shelter of insatiable lust, pride and false prestige, and being thus illusioned, are always sworn to unclean work, attracted by the impermanent. “
„They believe that to gratify the senses unto the end of life is the prime necessity of human civilization. Thus there is no end to their anxiety. Being bound by hundreds and thousands of desires, by lust and anger, they secure money by illegal means for sense gratification.“
„The demoniac person thinks: "So much wealth do I have today, and I will gain more according to my schemes. So much is mine now, and it will increase in the future, more and more. He is my enemy, and I have killed him; and my other enemy will also be killed. I am the lord of everything, I am the enjoyer, I am perfect, powerful and happy. I am the richest man, surrounded by aristocratic relatives. There is none so powerful and happy as I am. I shall perform sacrifices, I shall give some charity, and thus I shall rejoice." In this way, such persons are deluded by ignorance.“
„Thus perplexed by various anxieties and bound by a network of illusions, one becomes too strongly attached to sense enjoyment and falls down into hell.“
„Self-complacent and always impudent, deluded by wealth and false prestige, they sometimes perform sacrifices in name only without following any rules or regulations.“
„Bewildered by false ego, strength, pride, lust and anger, the demon becomes envious of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is situated in his own body and in the bodies of others, and blasphemes against the real religion.“
„Those who are envious and mischievous, who are the lowest among men, are cast by Me into the ocean of material existence, into various demoniac species of life.“
„Attaining repeated birth amongst the species of demoniac life, such persons can never approach Me. Gradually they sink down to the most abominable type of existence.“
„There are three gates leading to this hell-lust, anger, and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul.“
