Cartoon of kali yuga-the iron age in which we now “live”

5000 Year old predictions, sadly coming true…..

I would personally suggest the government. They   never go to jail.
SB 5.12.7 Purport-     It is stated in  Srimad-Bhagavatam that in Kali-yuga the heads of government will be  plunderers and thieves. These thieves and plunderers take the money and  property of the public by force or connivance. Therefore it is said in  Srimad-Bhagavatam, rajanyair nirghrnair dasyu-dharmabhih. As Kali-yuga advances, we can see that these characteristics are already visible. We can  certainly imagine how deteriorated human civilization will be by the end of Kali-yuga. Indeed, there will no longer be a sane man capable of  understanding God and our relationship with Him. In other words, human beings  will be just like animals. At that time, in order to reform human society, Lord Krsna will come in the form of the Kalki avatara. His  business will be to kill all the atheists because ultimately the real protector is Visnu, or Krsna.
740928SB.MAY Lectures 214172/530501 plunderers. That is the statement in the  Srimad-Bhagavatam. Dasyu-dharmabhih. The government men will be all  dasyu. Dasyu means plunderer. Not pickpocket. Pickpocket, somehow or  other, if you do not understand, takes something from your pocket, and the  plunderer, or the dasyu, he catches you and by force, “If you don’t  spare your money, I shall kill you.” They are called  dasyu.   So the, in the present age of Kali, the  government men will be dasyu. This is stated in the Srimad-Bhagavatam.  Dasyu-dharmabhih. You can, we can see practically. You cannot keep your  money. You earn with hard labor, but you cannot keep gold, you cannot keep  jewelry, you cannot keep money. And… They will take it away by laws.
741001SB.MAY                    Lectures                   214359/530501   So actual, actual value, to keep cows, to have  food grains or gold, jewelries, these are the signs of richness. But  Kali-yuga is so cruel that if you have got gold, if you have got jewels, then  government will take away. Dasyu-dharmabhih. Formerly there were  ordinary plunderers, thieves. Now, according to Srimad-Bhagavatam,  the government will be composed of organized thieves. That is  meant: dasyu-dharmabhih, rajabhih. Government officer means organized  thieves in every country. That will be the situation. So you cannot keep  now. You have to be satisfied with these papers. That’s all.
750311mw.lon                 Conversations                 374598/530501 Prabhupada: Yes, leaders means government men. That is  described. They are all thieves and rogues, anywhere. Dasyu-dharmabhih.  Dasyu. Dasyu means plunderers, rogues. Unless you become a rogue you  cannot go to the government. You cannot… Any honest man cannot stay with  these government men.That is not possible at the present  age. Any government. Unless… Just like first-class rogue, your Nixon,  he became the president. Because he was a first-class rogue, he became the  president. So unless you are first-class rogue, you cannot stay within the  circle of government men. Rajanya dasyu-dharmabhih. And their business  will be to eat up the vital force of the people. Bhaksayisyanti praja  sarve rajanya dasyu-dharmabhih. This is the statement. And people will be  harassed. On account of their godlessness, they will be harassed by three  things: famine, no rain, and taxation. Taxation by the government, and there  will be no rain, there will be famine, no food, and they will be so much  embarrassed that they will give up their family and go away,  gacchanti giri-kananam, will go, enter into the hills and forest, giving  up their hearth and home. This is Kali-yuga. And this is due to  their godlessness.

   “The most important factor in this Age of Kali, which is an  ocean of faults, is that one can be free from all contamination and  become eligible to enter the kingdom of God simply by chanting the  Hare Krsna mantra. The self-realization that was achieved in the  Satya millennium by meditation, in the Treta millennium by the performance of  different sacrifices, and in the Dvapara millennium by worship of Lord  Krsna can be achieved in the Age of Kali simply by chanting the holy  names, Hare Krsna.”
