Horrible, unclean works meant to destroy the world

This is a short film sponsored by Elon Musk, founder of the SpaceX and Tesla companies. It is a fictional depiction of what technology is likely to produce in the not so distant future. The point is valid that all the technologies for such a thing to come about exist. All someone has to do is integrate them.

Hence, Lord Kṛṣṇa’s declaration that the demons “engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world.” This is a consequence of their belief that “this world is unreal, with no foundation, no God in control,” says Kṛṣṇa. “They say it is produced of sex desire and has no cause other than lust.” (BG 16.8). Thus, secularism and the idea that religion should not guide society gives rise to these awful things.

As told by some saṅkīrtana devotees, while travelling in their bus one morning, they suddenly came upon a pair of dogs mating in the middle of the road, right in the path of their vehicle. The dogs immediately recognized that they would be killed; you could see the fear in their eyes and hear their pitiful wailing. But in their state of copulation they could do nothing to avoid it. They were hit, and they were killed.

That is the fate of persons and societies who are incorrigibly against the Lord. Even though they realize that their inventions will result in their destruction, because they are too addicted to sense-gratification and godlessness, they can do nothing to prevent it.
