Few victims of cults like Amway lodge complaints with police
The disturbing effects of co-ordinated, devious techniques of social, psychological and physical persuasion inflicted on individuals (without their fully-informed consent) by pernicious cultic groups, like 'Amway' and 'Scientology,' can persist indefinitely. Notice how all former 'Amway' adherents (even those who are now criticizing 'Amway' on the Net) continue unconsciously to describe their experience using reality-inverting terminology coined by criminals in order to blame their victims and prevent them from complaining to law enforcement agencies.
In accurate, deconstructed English, anyone who has been persuaded to sign a contract with any corporate structure controlled by the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob, has been the victim of a premeditated, closed-market swindle and related advance fee frauds, and not an 'Independent Business Owner.' Given the wider-evidence, the term, 'IBO,' is utter nonsense - just one chapter-heading in a puerile 'commercial' fiction presented as fact.
Until significant numbers of 'Amway' victims all go to the police and report that they have been defrauded, and, in turn, used to defraud their friends and relatives, the problem will never go away. However, very few people want to admit that they could allow themselves to become the de facto slaves of cultic racketeers. In reality, at a time of vulnerability, anyone can be enticed by a cultic group and manipulated by his/her own instinctual desires; particularly if the initial approach is made by someone whom they already know and trust.
In order to have any chance of understanding cultism, it must be approached from the apparently subjective point of view that its results are always the product of a contagious deception, the victims of which unconsciously accept fiction as fact. Only then can the phenomenon be examined with genuine objectivity. Once this vital principle has been learned, the apparently authentic words and images reflected by persons under the influence of cultism - like those printed on counterfeit banknotes - are revealed as dangerous distractions. They should never be taken at face value and, therefore, I try to remind readers of this at all times. Any commentator who repeats the reality-inverting shielding terminology of any cultic group, but without detailed qualification (or heavy irony), demonstrates that he/she remains at a pitifully low-level of understanding.
