Thank you for a very good post. Regarding the issue of political commitment, it is worth emphasizing that India was under British rule. So in this sense there must have been a dualism in the life of Bhaktivinode Thakur. Accepting the fact that he followed a process chosen or shaped by himself, and at the same time had to take part in tasks in a physical reality. To earn a living and at the same time to one way or another promote traditional or modified versions of religion, etc.
It is understandable that the present was a hostile, opposite trend, i.e. the occupant's task was to present the systems of Indian philosophy as pagan, which would, in a way, justify robbery. Smaller, dumber, weaker, possessed. So there are, as it were, two sides.

The topic is also longer and more complicated. It is mentioned in the Bhagavad Gita that certain senses are grouped around the minds. Develop it for other plans - let's say the unity of body and mind, it must be a coherent, stable system. Its mapping may be partially contained in the genetic code. So assuming that the socially adjusted division of sudra, vaysa, ksatria, brahman encoded in the genes would give personal and social stability (division of social tasks) - hence the reluctance or prohibition of intermingling of these castes.
Nevertheless, it must be borne in mind then that the world is diverse. The living conditions are different. Subtropical, temperate, polar climate. The specialization of the tasks and the associated weights may be different. Different proportions.
Given the freedom of pairing now in the present Western world, it can be assumed that some gene mixing is taking place. This does not always lead to averaging and combination. Enclavization in Western Europe. Or a partial connection versus a partial separation - an example can be the legend of the Russian princes Rurik, allegedly the Vikings. Accepted locally in today's Russia, they were to bring order and mingled with the Slavs who also lived together with the Finno-Ugric (Finns). And finally these Vikings joined the Slavs but not the Finns.
On a personal level, if someone analyzes their personality, compares them with their ancestors, their outgrowth, social place, profession, family life, it turns out that there is a clear impact on the entirety of their own personality, expressed, for example, in specific professional, social or social attractions. geographic attraction, etc.
Nevertheless - simple schematism - tracing paper from India - cannot work with such a mixture. It would be utopian.

Controversies related to the political involvement of Chris Butler, SIF etc. for me are as follows. First of all, it was a mystery to most, it was kept secret. If I had such knowledge, I would not have assumed the authority of Chris Butler, nor would I be a member of the SIF. I did not know about the existence of the IGG party until 2017 or 2016. Moreover, some of the important leaders in Poland in the 90s said that politics was a "dark forest". Was it also hidden from them? For this blind adoration for Tulsi Gabbard, the sheep's rush is the quintessence of stupor and the feeling of belonging to a group in the pursuit of power. What is the authority for? Does the group have something to give to the world if there is still divorce, betrayal and so on? In addition, ignoring and relativizing support for a multi abortion clinic or taking subsidies (small but still).
It is impossible to act in politics without compromise and agreements. This means that anyone who professes or adheres to an orthodox hard system of values, behavior, culture, etc., will have to be influenced and contradicted by his ideals or patterns.
