On "Might Makes Right"
There are so many people and so many different opinions -- you have your people, and someone else has his people. As soon as you want to give the power to your people, the others will oppose.

Thirumangai-alwar cuts off his little finger
Thirumangai-alwar was not willing to promise in the name of the Lord and he said, “We cannot invoke the name of the Lord for such petty things. We do not want the idol, come back after one year and we will return even the small finger and if you want we will give this in writing.”
Jai Srila Prabhupada!
