Discussing McDonald's

    Posted on July 13, 2017

Siddha-svarupa: McDonald's, they are very proud. They announce how many hamburgers they have sold. They have branches everywhere in the world.

Prabhupada: Hamburger means?

Siddha-svarupa: Uh, that's beef. They kill the cows at an unbelievable rate, the number of cows they're killing for their meat.

Manasvi: I think up to now they have sold 200,000,000 hamburgers, or something like that.

Prabhupada: You also keep account? [laughs]

Manasvi: No, they put that ad in every day.

Siddha-svarupa: They put in a newspaper.

Ambarisa: You can't avoid seeing it.

Siddha-svarupa: No, they are always telling you.

Manasvi: In front of their shop it's always there.

Siddha-svarupa: "We have killed this many." They have also tried to connect themselves with patriotism and religion. They have, at all of their restaurants, they have the American flag flying along with the McDonald's flag. They have their own flag, McDonald's. So they fly alongside the American flag.
