Prabhupada has very clearly said that all this propaganda about world peace, is a futile attempt. So long as people are addicted to this kind of materialistic activities, unless the principles of religion are established, unless the principles of irreligion are eradicated from society, the call for peace is just so much hot air. Ultimately speaking, nothing is going to come of it. What’s needed is that these principles of Brahmanical culture – austerity, cleanliness, mercy and truthfulness should be established. Unfortunately, just the opposite is evident. Development of pride, actually people are so proud, although people are going to die any minute, yet they are very proud of their scientific advancement.
