Make Men, Do Not Kill Them Nataraja Dasa

We say – western ideals. But they are not western ideals. Not so far away – just a hundred years ago – everyone in west followed simple rules of family life. These are western ideals from time immemorial (not only Christian): – Husband serves God, wife serves husband, children serves parents and follow in their footsteps.

Not what we call now “western ideals” – equality, rights, bla bla bla – that’s the concoction of sick people – humanity haters communist/socialist/nationalist/liberasts and atheists – who wanted to create NEW HUMAN and NEW WORLD (by the help of new ideologies and respective consequences – continuous world wars, ethnic and class cleanings, artificial migration and famines and revolutions).

The author constructs his thesis on a series of assertions (for instance, that “we have a higher divorce rate in ISKCON than in the outside society”) for which he submits no evidence.  Presumably the reader is supposed to accept everything he says just because he says it. However, no serious scholar in any field would give credence to a series of opinions built on unsubstantiated pronouncements. Such is the stuff of cultism and propaganda, not intelligent journalism. read more
