I would like to remind your free-thinking readers that it is counter-productive to use 'negative' terminology when trying to communicate with the unquestioning core-adherents of 'MLM business opportunity' fraud. Their minds have been converted to operate in a dangerous loop of closed-logic which excludes external reality. Consequently, they will only accept what their leadership arbitrarily sanctions as enlightened, positive, etc. - if we say that we are anti-'MLM', its devoted followers systematically categorize us as unenlightened, negative, etc., and they will not listen to what we have to say, even though it is demonstrably for their benefit.
I don't know about you Shyam, but I'm not anti-anyone or anti-anything, I am, however, pro-truth.
Your free-thinking readers must remember that 'MLM business opportunity' fraud is a far more dangerous phenomenon than it first appears. It is a form of pernicious or criminogenic cultism (i.e. a self-perpetuating ritual belief system instigated for the clandestine purpose of human exploitation). Many millions of people have fallen, and continue to fall, temporary victim to this form of 'commercial' cultism, because it has been tailored to fit the spirit of the times. However, the instigators of 'MLM' cults are neither original nor unique. Essentially, they have peddled the age-old lie that progressive initiation into their own superior knowledge (coupled with total belief in its authenticity and unconditional deference to the authority of its higher initiates) will defeat a negative force of evil and lead to exclusive redemption in a form of secure Utopian existence. It is by making total belief a prerequisite of redemption that 'MLM' adherents are drawn into the dangerous loop of closed-logic (i.e. failure to achieve financial and personal reward from 'MLM,' is solely the fault of the individual who didn't believe totally).
Sadly, the fanatical long-term core-adherents of 'MLM' cults are psychotic (i.e. suffering from psychosis, a severe mental derangement especially when resulting in delusions and loss of contact with external reality). Core-'MLM' adherents who manage to find the inner-strength to break with their group and confront the ego-destroying reality that they have been systematically deceived and exploited, are invariably destitute and dissociated from all their previous social contacts.
