As ever, none of these latest 'MLM' propagandists can produce any independent quantifiable evidence in the form of audited accounts (particularly, income-tax payment receipts) to support the absurd fairy story entitled 'lawful MLM/Direct Selling.'
As you know, about 15 years ago, I coined the common-sense phrase: 'premeditated, or dissimulated, closed-market swindle,' in order to deconstruct all Ponzi schemes, pyramid frauds, money circulation games, chain-letter scams, etc. The lie which is fundamental to all 'closed-market swindles' is that people can earn income lawfully by contributing their own money to participate in any alleged 'profitable commercial activity' which is secretly an economically-unviable fake, due to the fact that the alleged 'profitable commercial activity' has no significant, or sustainable, source of revenue other than its own participants.
For more than 50 years, in the USA, 'MLM/Direct Selling income opportunity' racketeers have been allowed to dissimulate closed-market swindles by offering their victims various banal, but grossly-over-priced, products, and/or services, in exchange for unlawful payments, on the pretext that 'MLM' products and/or services, can then be regularly re-sold for a profit in significant quantities. However, since no gang of 'MLM' racketeers has ever proved that 'MLM'wampum has actually been regularly re-sold directly to the general public for profit in significant quantities, 'MLM' participants have, in fact, been peddled infinite shares of their own finite money.
