Good observations ya akhi and good questions.
After this post only I realize that even after the arrival of Hazrat Mehdi AS things will not ease immediately. We shall have to endure a state of fear for at least seven years. A sobering thought.

Hidayah is an act of the heart and submission of the heart to Allah Ta’ala. People’s heart in our times have become corrupt and hardened to the extent that they blatantly lie, cheat and refuse to admit even when they are proven to be wrong.
Mahdi (AS)’s era will bring in circumstances when hearts will change.
The biggest problem in our times is that we have abundance of books, speeches, moral advices but people are most corrupt…We probably never had the number of Ulama (in quantity) which we have today and YET people are still defiant.
Allah Ta’ala will change hearts in the era of Mahdi (AS) and that is my belief. Science, technology is and will remain subservient to human intentions and when hearts change, intentions will change.
The stories from the era of Khilafah tell us that the people’s hearts were predisposed to goodness (and Khayr) while in our times people’s hearts are predisposed to evil (and Sharr).
Deal with people in your lives and you will notice how evil, stubborn people have become. You may do some good but because you opposed someone, this person will become your enemy and work hard to undermine you every step of the way even when they know that you are right.

This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
