- Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada, Founder of the Society for Krishna Consciousness on the reason why the US government fails:
“You require brahmanas (learned and pious teachers and spiritual leaders), ksatriyas (military and administrators), vaisyas (farmers and merchants/business people), and sudras (laborers). Just as when you want to construct a building, you require engineers. You don’t want sweepers… So if you follow the division of varnasrama (the ancient Vedic system of arranging society into four socio-occupational divisions – varnas – and four spiritual divisions – asramas – to promote social, economic, and political well-being and the spiritual advancement of all members of society), only ksatriyas are allowed to govern.
“And for the legislative assembly – the senators – only qualified brahmanas. Now the butcher is in the legislative assembly. What does he know about making laws? He is a butcher, but by winning votes, he becomes a senator. At the present moment, by the principle of vox populi, a butcher goes to the legislature. So everything depends on training… There cannot be just one class. That is foolishness because we have to engage different classes of men in different activities.
“If we do not know the art, then we will fail because unless there is a division of work, there will be havoc. The different classes of society should cooperate exactly as the different parts of the body do. Although each part is meant for a different purpose, they all do the work for one cause: to maintain the body properly.”
2. A Discourse by Mormon Elder G. A. Smith, Delivered in the Bowery, Great Salt Lake City, September 23, 1855: [The Church reversed this decision to disallow blacks from holding the Priesthood in 1976.]
“For the last hundred years, philanthropists, who were ignorant of the order of God—of the irrevocable decrees of the Almighty—have exerted themselves vigorously to thwart the purposes of the Almighty, in trying to remove the curse of servitude from the descendants of Canaan; but their endeavors are vain and useless; it is labor lost, and answers no end, only so far as it serves to multiply the difficulties and perplexities which are arising in this generation, to bring about the great destruction of corruption and wickedness from the earth; in this way it all indirectly serves a purpose.
“When God has decreed a certain way for men to be in servitude, and
has designed they shall hold that position, it is worse than useless for any man or set of men, to undertake to put them in a position to rule.
“The Lord conferred portions of the Priesthood upon certain races of men, and through promises made to their fathers they were entitled to the rights and blessings, and privileges of that Priesthood. Other races, in consequence of their corruptions, their murders, their wickedness, or the wickedness of their fathers, had the Priesthood taken from them, and the curse that was upon them was decreed should descend upon their posterity after them, it was decreed that they should not bear rule.
“In looking abroad on the earth and seeing the effects produced upon different races of men, it will be plainly discovered that there are races who have never been permitted to bear rule to any great extent.”
3. Ayn Rand (Atheist):
“Egalitarianism means the belief in the equality of all men. If the word “equality” is to be taken in any serious or rational sense, the crusade for this belief is dated by about a century or more: the United States of America has made it an anachronism—by establishing a system based on the principle of individual rights. “Equality,” in a human context, is a political term: it means equality before the law, the equality of fundamental, inalienable rights which every man possesses by virtue of his birth as a human being, and which may not be infringed or abrogated by man-made institutions, such as titles of nobility or the division of men into castes established by law, with special privileges granted to some and denied to others. The rise of capitalism swept away all castes, including the institutions of aristocracy and of slavery or serfdom.
“But this is not the meaning that the altruists ascribe to the word “equality.”
“They turn the word into an anti-concept: they use it to mean, not political, but metaphysical equality—the equality of personal attributes and virtues, regardless of natural endowment or individual choice, performance and character. It is not man-made institutions, but nature, i.e., reality, that they propose to fight—by means of man-made institutions.
“Since nature does not endow all men with equal beauty or equal intelligence, and the faculty of volition leads men to make different choices, the egalitarians propose to abolish the “unfairness” of nature and of volition, and to establish universal equality in fact—in defiance of facts. Since the Law of Identity is impervious to human manipulation, it is the Law of Causality that they struggle to abrogate. Since personal attributes or virtues cannot be “redistributed,” they seek to deprive men of their consequences—of the rewards, the benefits, the achievements created by personal attributes and virtues. It is not equality before the law that they seek, but inequality: the establishment of an inverted social pyramid, with a new aristocracy on top—the aristocracy of non-value.”
By denying the obvious biological realities of race, genetics, IQ, and gender, the Cultural Marxists are trying to force their ridiculous belief on their sheeple through legislation, with the results we see today: failed governments and societies.
