Although the recent news about 'Speakasiaonline' is encouraging, it is almost a pointless exercise to deal with 'MLM income opportunity' fraud on a case by case basis.
I challenge any gang of 'MLM income opportunity' racketeers anywhere in the world, to prove that a significant number of their constantly-churning adherents has ever earned any net-income lawfully from regularly retailing products, and/or services, to the public for a profit.
No one is going to accept my challenge, for the simple reason that the overwhelming majority of so-called 'Independent MLM Business Owners' have abandoned their so-called 'businesses' within a short period, whilst a significant minority (usually with access to independent funds) have become de facto slaves, unconsciously dissipating all their mental, physical and financial resources to the benefit of hitherto unknown 'MLM' bosses, whom they have continued to trust and follow no matter what suffering this has entailed.
The evidence (in the form of the tax record) proves that, for the previous 50+ years, all so-called 'MLM income opportunities,' have been variations of essentially the same addictive lie. This reality-inverting, self-perpetuating fraud was conceived by a pathetic little gang of narcissistic parasites in the USA, where it has never been rigorously challenged in the criminal courts. As a direct result of this chronic failure of US law enforcement, certain American 'MLM' bosses have managed to become some of the most influential and wealthy racketeers in history. Not surprisingly, they have spawned countless copy-cats, including the bosses of the Indian 'MLM' racket known as 'Speakasiaonline'.Whilst US law enforcement agents have continued to do effectively nothing, 'MLM income opportunity' fraud has become a global, organized criminal activity generating billions of illegal dollars and poisoning the lives of tens of millions of ill-informed individuals. A significant amount of this stolen cash has been used to infiltrate traditional culture, and particularly to co-opt academics and corrupt government.
Had common-sense been applied years ago in the USA, then 'MLM income opportunity' fraud could have been fully-identified, and stamped out. Instead, we are now in a crazy situation where the phenomenon still remains largely-unrecognised, even though it should be ranked alongside the sale of narcotics as an ongoing menace to democracy and the rule of law.Quite obviously, it is now not in the interests of senior US law enforcement agents and politicians to admit their own shameful role in this shameful affair.
