"Srila Prabhupada started something revolutionary; a multi-guru system all serving under a governing body."
(Badrinarayan Das, GBC, "Report from the Parallel Lines of Authority Committee", July 7th, 2007)

Now let us see where Srila Prabhupada supposedly "started a multi-guru system". We know it was not with the first 11 guru hoaxers (Great Guru Hoax, part 1), because even the GBC have accepted that Srila Prabhupada did not order them to be gurus. And it could not have been the current multi guru system we have in ISKCON, because this was started solely by the GBC (the Great Guru Hoax, part 2):

"...any GBC can present a diksa guru candidate before the GBC body. […]
and upon majority approval of the body, he may take up the responsibilities of an initiating guru in ISKCON."

(GBC Resolution No. 3, March 30th, 1986)

Note the above is a resolution crafted solely by the GBC, and they make no claim that it comes from an order given by Srila Prabhupada. For as we saw previously, the GBC have accepted H. H. Jayadvaita Swami's argument that to claim that

"Srila Prabhupada personally detailed the procedure for increasing the number of initiating guru[s]" is an "outright fabrication".

Therefore, the GBC themselves accept there is no evidence that Srila Prabhupada ordered a multi-guru system, and yet they keep stating this lie, hoping that by repeating this lie enough, people will come to accept this lie. In this they are relying on the teachings of Hitler's propagandist Joseph Goebbels, who said:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."

And for the best part of the last 30 years, this Goebellian technique worked, with ISKCON having been conned by the Great Guru Hoax, parts 1 and 2. But the IRM has now destroyed this lie with the truth, and consequently more and more devotees are no longer willing to believe this lie.
