india as a country is an unjust and corrupt society but Sikhs especially in cities r very wealthy.

So I am kind of confused about this quote of Confucius.

to be wealthy in that situation normally means you have taken advantadge of that unjust situation just look at Ambani Adani etc  also hoarded it ignoring the suffering of others . If you are honoured by unjust people that would be because you are cut of the same cloth. However, Sikhs who are truly on the path are not usually the extreme wealth bracket they are comfortable and they would never tolerate injustice even if it cost them everything . The urban wealthy sorts usually have koti niaat and are misane  they usually do not hold sikhi uppermost , they will be handing out siropas to our dokhis and doing selfies with them .

    • A little random, but I'll post it anyway People in older days seemed to be fitter and healthier ; I mean, they generally walked more, and ate less rubbish. They were forced to be more physically healthy by way of life.  They likely had better mental health, as they would not have been using technology like phone/PC/TV/audio/whatsapp to fill their minds with rubbish like most of us do, and which has driven materialism to extreme levels They would have had better diet with fresher food, less ready-made foods and less junk snacks and drinks. They would have eaten food in peace with family, not whilst watching TV Apparently (for those who know about acupressure and ayurveda) walking bare-foot is also good for the nervous system and brain; people walk less bare foot nowadays. Squatting to open bowels is known to reduce incidence of gastrointestinal cancer.  https://www.researchgate.net/publication/305362118_Etiology_of_Diverticulosis Some of these things are common sense, some of these things we do not /find it difficult to get away from as they make our lives a lot easier   What of these above factors do you actively try to control in your life? Do they discourage us from doing a lot of these things because they have vested interests? Anyone know about any race/tribe of people who follow these older ways as much as possible ? Is meat-eating in history, a myth? Has it been exaggerated by those in the meat industry to brainwash people that eating meat is normal? Were most people in the past vegetarian by choice (I know meat is supposedly food of wealthy and hunters)  
    • Is it used properly though? Many people (not all) become dependent on it. True, but I also haven't seen anything that supports it either. Here's an excerpt from a book by Sant Harnam Singh Rampur Khera Wale - https://www.sikhbookclub.com/Book/Intoxicant-Enemy-of-Humanity   Bhul Chuk Maaf 🙏
    • @Redoptics Isn't a missionary. I think you're missing his point.  Not speaking on behalf of source, but speaking to the point redoptics was trying to make.  Use Gurbani to understand Gurbani. You can do that. 
    • The marijuana fish wine consumer is referencing a specific tradition of person. Not anyone who properly uses Sukha.  The second references no longer needing it.  Nothing in Gurbani is against Sukha. It's ground into the floors of Gurudwaras and the Gurus had Degh Sevadars. Anyone with a problem with Sukha have white folks in their brains. Which is why they're alcoholics usually.
