The reality-inverting accusations which the 'Amway' Ministry of Truth has hurled in our direction via Mr. David Steadson (a.k.a.'IBOFB'), were maliciously designed to make any free-thinking individual challenging the authenticy of 'Amway/MLM,' appear dishonest, and/or ill-informed, and/or isolated, and/or irrational. The unmasked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw even went so far as to broadcast the false, defamatory and paranoid claim that an Internet War is being prosecuted against 'Amway' by a form of international, anti-capitalist cult. Therefore, it is not surprising that this vile propagandist for billionaire racketeers conveniently ignored the fact that a senior Indian police officer, Mr. V.C. Sajjanar, has already recognised various so-called 'MLM business opportunities' as unlawful money circulation schemes camouflaged behind effectively-unsaleable wampum, and that senior Indian Judges have agreed with Mr. Sajjanar's insightful analysis.
The 'Amway' racketeers, and their flock of reality-inverting 'Direct Selling Association' copycats, have spent decades attempting to propagate, peddle and maintain the profitable lie that 'Multi-Level Marketing' is a viable 'business opportunity.'
Simply by applying common-sense, the vast majority of people can tell straight away that 'MLM' is a pernicious scam, but few people can offer an accurate explanation of what mystifying organizations like 'Amway' have actually been hiding.
In reality, 'MLM business opportunity' frauds have been perpetrated by gangs of organized criminals following an established pattern of major racketeering activity as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations, Act 1970, and clarified by various US Supreme Court rulings. Classically, the bosses of these 'MLM' gangs have maliciously constructed, and hidden behind, labyrinths of Trojan Horse corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, enterprises. These criminogenic labyrinths have been designed to prevent, and/or divert, investigation and isolate the real beneficiaries of 'MLM' frauds from liability.
To prove the validity of this wider-analysis, to date, Indian law enforcement agents have only been able to prosecute 'Amway India Enterprises', its corporate officers and its agents. Meanwhile, the grinning billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob (i.e. the De Vos and Van Andel clans, and their criminal associates), have been the real threat to the Indian economy and to the social fabric of india, but they are not Indian citizens and, consequently, they are not facing criminal charges in India.
My advice to any patriotic Indian seriously wanting to put a stop to this ongoing, external menace to their republic would be to gather a token sample of Indian victims of the 'Amway business opportunity' lie, then find US attorneys willing to file a multi-billion dollar class-action lawsuit suit in the USA on behalf of all Indian 'Amway' victims under the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970. Judging by what has happened in Britain, if you wait for the Indian government to take action, you will wait forever.
The precedent for such an unstoppable RICO lawsuit against 'Amway' has already been clearly established in California.
