The modern democracy state, they’re simply concerned with the tax

“The modern democracy state, they’re simply concerned with the tax. That’s all. But in the sastra it is said that if you keep the citizens blind in the matter of morality and immorality and levy tax only, you will be satisfied with tax, then you will also go to ruin and they also go to ruin. Yes, ruination. Yes. Because he is taking all the sins. Tax means it is sinfully earned, and he’s taking the money. Yes, he’ll be the worst sufferer, in this life and next life. Just like I am accenting disciples so I am taking responsibility of the sinful reactions. So similarly a king [or a democracy] levying taxes, that means that he will take the share, the sinful or pious life of the citizens. Therefore if he keeps the citizens pious life, then he will be profited and citizens will be profited. Otherwise he will go to hell and the citizens will go to hell. One blind man leading another blind man.”

These are powerful words from Srila Prabhupada. Today leaders in democracies look incredibly aged after just 4 or 8 years of ‘service’. That they don’t teach God consciousness certainly has a lot to do with this.
