Kali-yuga: bribes, showbottle leaders
Posted on January 14, 2017
Bhagavata says, anadhena nyaya ratim[?]: "If you have no money, then don't expect justice. Don't expect justice." Even high-court judges, they take bribe to give you favorable judgment. In India we have seen so many bribe. Police, you give bribe; high-court judge, you can give bribe. This is the position of Kali-yuga, horrible position. The king or the so-called president is simply showbottle.
