We're finally going to get the bill for the Industrial Age. If the
projections are right, it's going to be a big one: the ecological
collapse of the planet, says Jeremy Rifkin. At the dawn of the industrial
age two hundred years ago, we took a wrong turn when we started
living on nature’s capital instead of nature’s incomes. We started
gorging upon resources that took nature millions of years to create.
These resources were saved up by nature according to its own plan of
functioning.

Nature has her own way; she better understands her own affairs
than we. We have one planet to live on and all our needs have to be
satisfied with whatever is in here. We can not import a thing from
other planets for our survival, no matter how much we advertise our
dubious moon missions. All we can do is blow up billions and console
the taxpayers with few rocks.

This senseless exploitation of resources can not go on forever. This
cradle to grave economics in which we turn every natural resource
into a toxic waste is inherently unsustainable. In nature, there is no
such thing as waste. So called waste generated by one living being is
effectively utilized by another and so on until nothing is left. This is
called the cycle of life. But today our linear system of living has replaced
this natural cyclical system.
This is where cow comes into picture. Living with cow is living on
nature’s incomes without depleting its capital resources. Modern
civilization is utilizing nature’s capital resources. These resources like
petroleum were accumulated by nature over millions of years, but we
have squandered them in just 150 years. How long this reckless lifestyle
will go on? In Vedic tradition, cow provided all the necessities of
human society. Society reciprocated her services by protecting her.
Bull was regarded as a symbol of religion and also a father because
bull produced grains by ploughing the fields. Now we have tractors
and other agricultural machinery but once the oil runs out, we will
have to revert back to bulls again (if any left by the time).

In the universal scheme of creation, fate of species called humans
has been attached to that of another, namely cows, to an absolute
and overwhelming degree. This implies that welfare and well-being
of cows leads to progress and prosperity and mistreatment of cows
results in degradation of society.

In the natural plan of Vedic living, human society depends on cows
for its requirements of economic prosperity, food production, soil
fertility, nutrition, healthcare, fuel supply, transport, spiritual wellbeing,
sustainable development, individual and social peace, higher
consciousness, development of human qualities, performance of
religious duties, environmental protection, ecological preservation,
advancement of art & culture, cottage industry etc.

Many of the maladies staring in our face today can be traced to this
factor – humanity distancing itself from the timeless culture of cow
protection.
