Symptoms of Empires In Decline

[PADA: Article notes symptoms of : Empires In Decline i.e. Kali Yuga increasing. ]


  1. The USA is in an advanced state of cultural decadence. Not only US, it's spread all over western affluent nations. In ancient times we can read of the decadence of the Roman Empire which brought about its collapse. For the bankruptcy of the Soviet Empire like that of the British and Roman and all other crumbled Empires (Babylon, Greek, etc) was not only financial but rather spiritual, for spirituality is the source of morality.

    God seems to allow empires because when properly run they do more good than harm. However, when religion declines there always comes a decadent phase when Empires begin to do more harm than good.

    And thus they are allowed to fall. Such was the case of the British Empire which went from noble even evangelical aims and fell due commercial greed in its opium wars in China, its concentration camps in South Africa and in its immoral colonial performance in East Africa, India and the Caribbean.

    However, since Prabhupada started the global Sankirtan movement in USA we expected more wisdom and example from this nation.

  2. HARE KRSNA---Yes,this article is very insightful.I thought it interesting how the author called present-day America obsessed with "The Cult of Self".As devotees we can see this to be true and the only positive alternative is "The Cult of Lord Caitanya". ALL GLORIES TO HIS DIVINE GRACE A.C.BHAKTIVEDANTA SWAMI PRABHUPADA!
