IBOFB one of the most transparent intellectual prostitutes
The unmasked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. David J. Steadson, is self-evidently one of the most-transparent intellectual prostitutes currently practising the loathsome art of sophism on the Net. on behalf of the wealthy bosses of a pernicious cultic group (whilst steadfastly pretending to be an independent thinker). Notice how Mr. Steadson has absolutely nothing to say about the reality-inverting racketeers behind the so-called 'South Western Company' (another upstanding member of the so-called'Direct Selling Association').
Mr. Steadson's latest reality-inverting pretense that I am an unenlightened person 'bastardizing' the work of Prof. Robert Jay Lifton, is particularly ironic; for, in making this simplistic false statement, Mr. Steadson is actually seeking to maintain control over how 'Amway' core-adherents perceive the outside world. Contrary to what Mr. Steadson also pretends, Prof. Lifton doesn't suggest that a thought reform program cannot exist unless its subjects are not permitted to communicate with outsiders. Based on this malicious bastardization of the work of Prof. Lifton, according to Mr. Steadson' follow-up sophistic argument: any group like 'Amway'and 'Scientology' with adherents who proselytize, cannot be a cultic, because these adherents are encouraged to communicate with outsiders.
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, half a century of evidence proves beyond any doubt that the way insolvent 'Amway' core-adherents communicate with the outside world has been controlled by a closed-logic, totalitarian fiction which these individuals were unconsciously programmed to accept as fact. The unoriginal, two-dimensional fiction which has controlled the personalities and behaviour of de facto 'Amway' slave recruiters, lies at the heart of all totalitarian movements; this fiction systematically categorizes, condemns and excludes as unenlightened, negative, evil, etc., all free-thinking individuals and any quantifiable evidence challenging the authenticity of this very fiction. In this way, the minds of de facto 'Amway' slave recruiters have become converted to accept only what their billionaire bosses, and millionaire under-bosses, have arbitrarily sanctioned as enlightened, positive, righteous, etc. Consequently, de facto 'Amway' slave recruiters have habitually communicated amongst themselves using their group's thought-stopping-ritual jargon ('MLM', 'IBOs', 'ABOs',etc.), and they have found it difficult, if not impossible, to communicate with negative persons outside of their group whom they falsely believed to be not only doomed to poverty, but also to be a suppressive threat to achieving success in 'Amway.'
In plain English, what Prof. Lifton described in 1961 as a 'totalistic thought reform program,' is nothing more than a blue-print for intellectually-castrating, and exploiting, individuals to the point where the fact that they have been intellectually-castrated, and are being exploited, has become completely unthinkable to them.
As for Mr. Steadson's further pretense that the concept of thought reform is unscientificand untested: all of human history proves that totalitarianism itself is enduring, its camouflage is ephemeral.
Let's face it Shyam, if we were narcissistic cultic racketeers who were making billions of dollars by exposing individuals to a thought reform program dressed up as a 'Business Opportunity', then it would be manifestly in our interests to find some amoral little shit with a degree in psychology, and then get him steadfastly to pretend that even if there is such thing as a thought reform program, we are not running one.
