I just looked up the Kali Yuga and it's pretty interesting how reflective these features are of modern times.
>Rulers will become unreasonable: they will levy taxes unfairly.
>Rulers will no longer see it as their duty to promote spirituality, or to protect their subjects: they will become a danger to the world.
Reflective of how western leaders like Merkel are actively trying to destroy the lives of their own countrymen.
>People will start migrating, seeking countries where wheat and barley form the staple food source.
Reffering to mass-immigation of course. People leave behind the lands where their ancestors lived for centuries for the sake of attaining wealth.
>Avarice and wrath will be common. Humans will openly display animosity towards each other. Ignorance of dharma will occur.
>People will have thoughts of murder with no justification and will see nothing wrong in that.
Could be reflective of how people who may not strictly follow social standards are treated like something lower than human and leftists openly threaten their political enemies because they believe themselves to be on the right side of history.
>Lust will be viewed as socially acceptable and sexual intercourse will be seen as the central requirement of life.
>Sin will increase exponentially, while virtue will fade and cease to flourish.
No explanation needed.
>People will become addicted to intoxicating drinks and drugs.
Alcohol, tabacco and soft-drugs like weed are almost entirely socially accepted in the west.
>Gurus will no longer be respected and their students will attempt to injure them. Their teachings will be insulted, and followers of Kama will wrest control of the mind from all human beings.
This may either reflect the lack of religion among people in general or how islam, a religion known for its lack of secular values and hostility against religious minorities is replacing Hinduism in Western-India and has already done so in Pakistan.Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
