Ideal Taxes – Radhanath Swami
Places where it is most needed for everyone’s welfare. But today, somehow or other, the money is being extracted but we don’t see any money coming down. We don’t know where it is gone.
We never hear the sun taking any bribes. But, nowadays we know that nothing is going to be provided for me unless I bribe. What does this mean? This means that the leaders are not God conscious, they are not ruling on behalf of God. They are ruling on behalf of their own pride, their own ego and their own exploitative tendency. Some leaders really want to do good to people. Such a soul is very rare. They may have all good motives; but they cannot fulfill their desires to really help, because they are not directed by the saintly persons and the holy books, who can teach them the actual method to be in harmony with arrangement of God.
