You make it all sound so sinister, facet.
Merely sharing the experience from this point, it doesn’t sound sinister.. it is sinister. That is the reality.
I cannot (and do not) speak for the various global and individual groups - not at all, this is why what you state, along with others, is so good for everyone to see.
What is said by me, is my small contribution towards large networks.. but this does not make my contribution any less valid than anyone else’s.
Some adherents may not be this way, but what they will be doing is supporting those who are.
Recruitment to an ideology, to support the beliefs in question - as before, just because there is no physical place of gathering (at least in some areas as you mention) does not mean that there is no recruitment of adherents. Believers may be a better word? Recruitment does not = a physical location. It = people’s minds. Location or not.
Also note the vegetarian restaurants set up, the “festival” style events (pre covid) that take place advertised by glossy colourful leaflets offering free vegetarian feast of food.
Nothing mentioned about krisna consciousness until the small print.
People can do what they want and try to agency of themselves in these things, no problem, but personally, I would not knowingly support abuse or trust anything to do with a network that has a history of it, and with ongoing cases.
