The Collapse of Civilization

A disciple of Srila Prabhupada remembers a very interesting pastime in which Srila Prabhupada points out the main defect in modern society and even predicts the future state of our world:

Gokularanajana: With his cane Prabhupada pointed to the skyline and said, "You see this city? This city and all cities will collapse very soon. Do you know why?" Everyone hesitated, wondering, but Tamal Krishna quickly said, "Because the people here don't know how to grow food." Everybody else was searching for some esoteric reason but Tamal gave a practical reason. Prabhupada said, "Yes." Growing food is the whole purpose of our farm communities and we still are trying to grasp their importance.
