Chakra's Champions Evade Combat
USA (VNN) - by Krishnakant dasa (see also VNN stories # 1541, 1509)
CHAKRA recently posted a brief item entitled - 'VNN Refutes Srila
Prabhupada? - a supposed rebuttal of - 'Chakra's Army Fires Blanks' - an article earlier posted on VNN. Unfortunately rather than
deal with the content of the article, CHAKRA substitutes character
assassination for proper philosophical argument. This is interesting,
in that it appears to be an admission that they can not actually
answer the points made in the article. Instead they enlist an
anonymous champion to state the following:
The article reflects typical Krishnakant writing. I have already
tried to have a dialogue with him, but it is impossible. His trick
is to keep you busy unravelling his twisty-turny logic, and this
way you have no time to really say anything because you are always
too busy explaining he is illogical.
Does CHAKRA then make an attempt to show why the article in question
is typical of twisty-turny logic or why it is illogical.
No such luck Im afraid. In fact the only part of the above statement
they are actually able to demonstrate is that they do indeed not
- really say anything, although one assumes they would have
had ample time! Also THEY are the ones who now seem to lack the
capability to have a dialogue.
The anonymous champion then enlists the help of an anonymous
friend to try and further belittle the author. The main point,
which was curiously a great source of mirth for him and his nameless
friend, relates to Srila Prabhupada's use of the phrase '...they
will be initiators'. He seems to feel this phrase alone somehow
justified the GBC's dismantling of the officiating acarya system,
which was personally put in place by His Divine Grace with no
countermanding order for it's termination. Unfortunately these
valiant warriors have overlooked the simple fact that ritviks
ARE initiators; but they initiate on Srila Prabhupada's behalf!
This point of course is conclusively demonstrated in the article
in question. The very article they refuse to answer.
We would encourage this particular anonymous 'champion' to actually
ANSWER the points made in 'Chakra's Army Fires Blanks', in particular
to provide evidence to support modifications A & B as mentioned
in 'The Final Order'. If he cannot do this, then simply resorting to childish insult
will not impress anyone. The anonymous champion complains that
my arguments are full of twisty-turny logic. I sincerely hope
the above is not too complicated for him. For now it seems that
CHAKRAS inability to offer any argumentation based on philosophy,
proves that CHAKRAS Army are now no longer even Firing blanks,
but have run out of ammunition altogether!
