since I learned that the undisputed facts of 9-11 don't remotely fit the “official story”, I simply don't believe anything I see on the media. Annuttama devi, Oct 2017

Message body

Hare Krsna Prabhu,
Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Most people are probably aware that a lone, crazed, ISIS gunman opened fire with an automatic weapon and mowed down over 500 concert goers, killing 59. This is a horrible tragedy that proves we are vulnerable from nuts with guns anywhere we go. Or is it? For myself, since I learned that the undisputed facts of 9-11 don't remotely fit the “official story”, I simply don't believe anything I see on the media. I try to use logic and common sense to determine if a story is rooted in truth. In the case of the Las Vegas shooting, I simply searched youtube.com for videos taken by concert goers with their cell phones that demonstrate the horrendous blood and gore that would naturally accompany 500 gunshot wounds: videos of arterial blood spurting, body parts blown away, etc. And guess what I found: nothing. Either all of the thousands of cell phone wielding concert goers had too much good taste to refrain from posting such videos, or the thousands of cell phone wielders didn't get any such footage. I suspect the latter.
So why do people automatically believe the stories that the media posts? It is because they trust the media in spite of the fact it has been proven time and again that the media lies and that many stories are actually psy-ops designed to generate an attitude towards a concept such as gun control.
I just finished reading Propaganda, written in 1927 by Edward Bernays, probably the most evil genius of the 20th century. In the book, Bernays clearly explains how many agendas are achieved by staging events that prey on public sentiment. For instance Bernays was employed by the tobacco industry to try to remove the taboo against women smoking in public. The tobacco industry despaired over the loss of 50% of their potential customers and went to Bernays to remedy their problem. At an Easter Day Parade in New York, Bernays paid a group of debutantes to publicly and dramatically light cigarettes, which were slyly coined as “freedom torches”, aligning women smoking in public with the women's rights movement of the time. The idea grabbed the imagination of a gullible public, and the taboo against women smoking in public went up in flames.
Just as a gullible public believes the media stories regardless of how obviously contrived the stories seem, ISKCON devotees are remarkably able to believe anything promoted by the GBC regardless of the fact that the GBC has covered up and minimized many horrendous crimes. For instance it was known for over 20 years to the GBC that Prabhvishnu visited Bangkok to break his sannyas vows, yet if devotees expressed concern about the possibility of impropriety, they were labeled as being envious. When the truth came out, the issue was shuffled to the side and ignored. Similarly it is well known that Bhavananda is a sodomizer and pedophile, yet he is welcomed in Mayapur and even gives class. And worst of all, the 11 zonal acaryas lied to the devotees, saying that Srila Prabhupada appointed them as pure devotees, a lie that traumatized and victimized countless thousands of their godsiblings. Yet many devotees still maintain an irrational belief that the GBC is made up of sincere devotees with no agenda other than the betterment of Srila Prabhupada's ISKCON.
The GBC seems to have used Bernays techniques as their guidebook. For instance Danavir Maharaja's book, Poison Remedy right on the first page rains fire and brimstone down on anyone who might possibly wonder if Srila Prabhupada was poisoned:
My opinion is that Srila Prabhupada was surely not poisoned by any disciples. The poison theory is hatimata...Mad Elephant Vaisnava Aparadha at its heaviest. By drinking this deadly brew, bubbling with blasphemy of Vaisnavas, naive devotees are ruining their spiritual lives. Please avoid listening to the poison theory.” The Poison Antidote, Danavir
Please keep in mind that the person who started the “poison theory” was Srila Prabhupada himself when he said (among other things on this issue), “Somebody has said that somebody has poisoned me. I think it is true.”
And just as the term “conspiracy theory” was weaponized by the CIA, the term “ritvik” was weaponized by the GBC, in spite of the term ritvik appearing in Srila Prabhupada books and in spite of its use coming from a famous letter commissioned by Srila Prabhupada. The Ritvik Philosophy is only possible because the devotees don't have specific instructions from Srila Prabhupada regarding how to accommodate non-uttama adhikari diksa gurus. We can only speculate that the mysteriously missing audio tapes from Srila Prabhupada's last days may have contained the specific instructions or that the devotees forgot to ask him. As a result of not having these specific instructions from Srila Prabhupada, ISKCON has had to endure the tremendous loss of faith that results in a disciple when he/she sees the person who was supposed to deliver him/her from the material world fall into serious Maya. It is like the guru who is tossing him the life preserver from a boat in a tumultuous ocean falls in himself, to join him in the dangerous sea. What hope would the disciple then have for his own salvation?
The time has come to start believing Srila Prabhupada, and only Srila Prabhupada. Any time any authority claims any philosophy that is different than what is written in Srila Prabhupada's books, it should be rejected. Any claim of “vaisnava tradition” is bogus. Srila Prabhupada initiated women and allowed them to perform Deity worship against vaisnava tradition, wore sewn cloth and crossed the ocean. He was not a slave to vaisnava tradition, he is the source of vaisnava tradition.
Wishing you the best,
Anuttama

Kali's agents expertly introduced karma, jnana, and anyabhilasa in the Vaisnava sampradaya

"After the time of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, those faithful to Him kept apart from nondevotees, to avoid contamination. Seeing this, the personality of Kali sent his representatives in disguise to pollute the Vaisnava sampradaya. Posing as Vaisnavas, they spread their wicked doctrines, and appeared so intelligent and devoted that only pure devotees could detect their real identity. Most devotees -- not only the most neophyte – were enchanted by their tricks. In this way Kali's agents expertly…See More
