(My opinion of the Advaita scene after reading years of damage reports)
This is the terrifying implication of Advaita -- that self and other are one, distinctions between ourselves and other persons is illusion.
If a seeker entered the world of Advaita teachings, satsangs and teachers, he or she is in a world where no one has inherent rights to decent treatment and where adoration (to alleged enlightened ones)and submission (to alleged enlightened ones) are the only options.

Conventional distinctions between truth/untruth, good/bad, right wrong just/unjust are meaningless
None of us has a claim to inherent personal dignity or basic human rights
