Prabhupada: Our first problem is, because we have got this material body, eating. Everyone must eat. So Krsna says in the Bhagavad-gita, annad bhavanti bhutani: "If there is sufficient food grains, then both man and animal, they become happy." Therefore our first religion is to produce food grain sufficiently to feed everyone. Krsi-go-raksya-vanijyam vaisya-karma svabhava. This matter has been entrusted to the vaisyas. They should produce sufficient food and give protection to the cows for sufficient milk. Then the whole human society, animal society, will be happy. But we are disobeying the orders or the rules given by God. Instead of producing food, we are producing motorcars. And motor tires, motor parts. And so many other things. And therefore people are starving. The manual labor is being misused. We are disobeying the orders of God. Therefore we are unhappy. I have seen all over the world. There are enough space for producing food grains. And if we actually produce food grain, we can maintain ten times of the present population of the whole world. There is no question of scarcity because God has created everything complete. Purnam idam purnam adaya purnat purnam udacyate. There cannot be any defect in the creation of God. We have created these defects on account of our disobeying the orders of God. God never said that "motorcar-ad bhavanti bhutani." He never says. But instead of producing food grains, we are producing so many unwanted things. People's energy is engaged for... Just like in America or in every country, so much energy and resources are engaged for preparing war materials. And that means there must be war. And you must be killed; I must be killed. You will kill me; I will kill you. That's all. Therefore God says, catur-varnyam maya srstam guna-karma-vibhagasah. The human society should be divided into four classes of men: the most intelligent class, brahmana; the next intelligent class, ksatriya; then next intelligent class, vaisyas; and the fourth-class men, who cannot become brahmana, neither ksatriya, nor vaisya, they are called sudra. Sudra is meant for giving service to the others. Paricaryatmakam karyam sudra-karma svabhava-jam. So in this age, 99% people are engaged as sudra, working for others. No independence. Otherwise brahmana, ksatriya, vaisya, they are independent. They are nobody's servant. But at the present moment, education means how to become expert servant. That means sudra. So we cannot expect any good things from sudra. That is not possible. Formerly there was monarchy, and the kings were called rajarsis, saintly king. Imam rajarsayo viduh. These instruction are meant for the rajarsis, not for the sudras. So the rajarsis, they would take instruction from superior authority, brahmanas and Vaisnavas, and they will accordingly rule over. And the vaisyas would produce food grains sufficiently and milk sufficiently. People would eat very nicely, and they keep their health fit and save time for understanding his relationship with God. That is perfect civilization.
