Prabhpada's writings also combatted the false teachings of bogus yogis, gurus and "incarnations," who had appeared like a tidal wave of falsity in Kali-yuga, both in India and the West. His writings criticized modern political institutions also, analyzing why monarchs fell, why democracy was also failing, and how dictatorship would increasingly harass the citizens. The governments' policies of abusive taxation and their propaganda to bring people to the cities to work in factories, abandoning simple, agrarian life, were all discussed in the light of scriptures....Prabhupada's criticisms were strong and authoritative ... he was not a timid scholar pointing out some obscure historical references.
Suddenly Prabhupada spoke. "There's a very big conspiracy against us." "By the church?" guessed Dr. Patel. "Not the church," said Prabuhpada. "By the society?" Prabhupada uttered a thoughtful "Hmm," then added , "Now they are determined to cut down this movement." He didn't give any details, and neither Dr. Patel nor the others could draw out what was on his mind.

One day Prabhupada was leaving to take a ride in the countryside, but as he was about to enter the car on the right side, Pusta Krsna Swami suggested, "Srila Prabhpada, come to the other side. It's safer." And Prabhpada complied. ... At one point, they stopped and walked along a cliff beside the sea. When they returned to the car, Brahmananda Swami opened the right-side door and Prabhupada said, "No, the other side is safer," just as Pusta Krsna had previously suggested.
A few minutes later, as Prabhupada's black Citroen was rounding a curve, a Volkswagen suddenly appeared, heading toward them in the same lane. ...
