To persons, such as Trivedi, Scott ('Tex') Johnson , David ('IBOFB') Steadson, et al. 'Amway' is total reality. Yet, in the final analysis, 'Amway' (short for the 'American Way' ) can only be a puerile game of make-believe. All the quantifiable evidence ( as well as common sense), reveals to us that the 'Amway' myth of 'total financial freedom in 2-5 years' is no more real than the tale of one kindly old man with a white beard, Santa Claus, delivering presents to countless millions of obedient children around the world. However, young children's unconscious acceptance of 'Santa Claus' as total reality, stems from a fictitious scenario reflected as fact by the traditional culture in which they live. Up to a certain age, children are not equipped to challenge the model of reality offered to them by authoritarian figures in their family groups; particularly, their parents. Therefore, once children have been converted to a self-gratifying false belief in 'Santa,' the truth (that they are actually being deceived by the people whom they instinctively trust and follow) is unthinkable. The scenario can then be expanded to modify children's behaviour - 'Santa' has magical powers... he can see and hear everything they do at all times... he will reward them for unquestioning belief and punish them for dissent. Only when they attain the necessary level of intellectual / pyschological development, can children begin to use their critical and evaluative faculties and come to realize that 'Santa' is merely a game of make-believe. If you think about it, many of the basic procedures and conditions which have been used to establish the 'Amway' deception are only more-sophisticated versions of those which also propagate the benign 'Santa' deception. However, the instigators of 'Amway' were anything, but benign. In deed, many of their most-deluded adherents and convincing apologists turn out to be educated adults who have simply become incapable of facing the ego-destroying reality that they've been fooled by what is merely a game of make-believe.
Although core-adherents of the 'Amway' myth are demonstrably dissociated from external reality, they are always certain that they alone represent the 'truth' and they act accordingly. This is why Shyam, I keep saying that it a pointless waste of time trying to reason with these deluded people.
In effect, we are telling a group of wide-eyed children that they will receive no presents at Xmas, because 'Santa' is a lie and their parents are liars.
