The Bible identifies Satan the Devil, God’s arch-opposer, as the root of unfairness and inequality. He was the first cause of inequity early in man’s existence. Satan has fanned the flames of unfairness ever since, thus hoping to heap further reproach on Jehovah and His just ways of dealing with His creatures.—Genesis 3:4, 5; John 8:44; Revelation 12:9.
During what the Bible calls the last days of this unjust civilization, increasing woes were foretold to be brought by Satan upon people in all parts of the earth. Why? Because he knows that he has only a short time of existence left. So do not be unduly alarmed at the increase of unfairness and other forms of oppression. Rather, see in such happenings part of the composite sign that a complete change of system is at hand.—Revelation 12:12; Daniel 12:4; 2 Timothy 3:1.
