Those who have traveled to developing nations know what happens without these. In much of Africa, you can't have electricity because people will tear down the lines to sell them for copper. Think of what this scavenging requires: sufficient ignorance and/or selfishness in those who tear them down, those who buy them and melt them down, and those who buy the copper from the middlemen.
As we turn away from this light, the natural consequence is that the outcomes that rely upon it will recede and disappear.
Enmity is rising. The spirit of enmity will cause:
- Poor against rich.
- Left against right.
- Race against race.
- Young against old.
- Sibling against sibling.
- Spouse against spouse.
- Child against parent.
- Parent against child.
- Neighbor against neighbor.
- City against city.
- State against state.
- Finally, country against country.
I could speak for ten hours and not finish describing what this will look like.
If you have ears to hear and eyes to see, project yourself into what your world will look like as this spirit increases, and as all societal norms are removed, and prepare accordingly.
35 And I said unto them: Be not troubled, for, when all these things shall come to pass, ye may know that the promises which have been made unto you shall be fulfilled.
36 And when the light shall begin to break forth, it shall be with them like unto a parable which I will show you—
37 Ye look and behold the fig trees, and ye see them with your eyes, and ye say when they begin to shoot forth, and their leaves are yet tender, that summer is now nigh at hand;
38 Even so it shall be in that day when they shall see all these things, then shall they know that the hour is nigh. (D&C 45)
