Amway squealer falls all-time low intellectually

The latest sophistry from the unmasked 'Amway' Squealer, Mr. David J. Steadson, has fallen to an all-time low intellectually. The poor little lad has endeavoured to compare millions of clients quitting their gym membership annually, with millions of ill-informed victims constantly being churned through a camouflaged closed-market swindle. For decades the annual attrition-rate for the camouflaged closed-market swindle most-commonly referred to as 'Amway,' has (according to the organization's own figures) always been around 50%. The 5 year attrition rate for the same swindle has always been above 95%. Even the tiny minority who manage to hang around for longer than 5 years as de facto slave recruiters (convinced that they are 'Independent Business Owners') eventually quit. Thus, by extrapolation, the overall attrition-rate for the so-called'Amway Business Opportunity' has (effectively) been 100%. A more fitting comparison would be with a counterfeit company selling millions of people the same progressively-expensive (but defective) plan to build their own boat. Even though these have all eventually sunk without trace, the company has steadfastly blamed anyone complaining for not following the plan correctly.
For 50+ years, any grinning couples who have been presented by the 'Amway' Ministry of Truth as shining examples of 'Amway Prosperity, Happiness and Freedom,' have merely been schills whose apparent safe arrival in the 'Amway' Promised Land has not be due to them 'building' a so-called 'Amway Business,' but from an advanced fee fraud (commonly referred to as the'Amway Tool Scam').
Apparently, Mr Scott 'Tex' Johnson believes that I have called Mr. Steadson a 'Pig.' I don't suppose that it is worth trying to explain to Mr. Johnson that George Orwell's 'Animal Farm' is not really a Fairy Story (as it was subtitled) about nasty 'pigs.' It's actually a universal allegory which explains how in periods of mass-alienation (following: wars, disasters, economic crises, etc.), totalitarianism can take hold, because it is always tailored (by the same style of smooth-talking charlatan) to fit the existing beliefs and instinctual desires of the masses.

You're right. It's a completely unfair comparison. If you join the gym and then decide it's not for you, or your not going to dedicate the time to get results - tough luck, money down the drain.

If the same thing happens with Amway, you can get a refund!

What a great company!

Oh and gym yearly attrition rates are 40-80%, worse than Amway, which is 30-50% depending on the market, but there's higher membership fees for gyms, more people signing up for them, and no refunds. And gyms have even been around longer!

I expect we'll see an article of the Gym scam any day now ....

Interesting that such a successful company is downsizing at its home base.

Amway North America = FAIL

David Steadson defending a downsizing company? - FAIL also

David Steadson is a failure at defending Amway.

If I join the gym and work out hard for a month, I will have health benefits. If I join Amway and work hard for 6 months, I will be in debt from the system expenses.
