A Hindu Victory Over Communism? Yes, It’s Possible

Haribol Kulapavana Prabhu and Krsna Kirti Prabhus,
Dandavats. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
I placed a comment on the previous article about communism, referring readers to Chapter 20 of Krsna Book, The Description of Autumn which describes how good government should operate so I don’t want to repeat that here and the focus was not on this particular topic.
The idea of a Hindu victory over Marxism needs a definition of Hinduism first. After that you have to define the whole social and economic view of the brand of Hinduism you are propagating. This being the golden age of Lord Caitanya, we are always optimistic about such things.
The first analyses could be focused on how well particular Marxist or capitalist regimes act in accordance with the various principles laid out in this chapter among the many other remarks by Srila Prabhupada on government, management and politics. We can outline the pluses and minuses and see where a particular regime needs to go to get a higher rating.

In Answer to the Marxists

Please accept my obeisances and excuse my offenses.

In reading above a political cliche about redistribution of wealth in the USA, I am reminded how Srila Prabhupada used to preach how we were in favor of “spiritual communism.” Krsna Book chapter 20 entitled “Description of Autumn” has very interesting sections regarding good government and this particular quote stands out for me whenever I see political commentary in this vein:

When the Vedic followers, the brahmanas, inspire rich men like kings and members of the wealthy mercantile community to give charity in the performance of great sacrifices, the distribution of such wealth is also nectarean. The four sections of human society, namely the brahmanas, the ksatriyas, the vaisyas and the sudras, are meant to live peacefully in a cooperative mood; this is possible when they are guided by expert Vedic brahmanas who perform sacrifices and distribute wealth equally.

“distribute wealth equally”

This is a key to good governance: the people see and appreciate that wealth provided by Krsna is given freely to all. It is even described in this chapter that King Dasaratha would even deplete his treasury in his distribution of charity.

Always remember the definition: Politics in the USA is “show business for ugly people.”
