Here's some much-needed comic-relief for readers:
A deluded 'Herbalife' fanatic from India (who hasn't disclosed his/her name) has sent me a link to this recent, kitsch propaganda video (apparently produced by 'Herbalife India') complete with an arrogant command to remove 'The American Dream Made Nightmare' and a scripted-accusation:
'... you are sick evil man for you try killing hopes and dreams of millions of my brothers and sisters...'
At 10 minutes 38 seconds into the video, a particularly-unconvincing Indian 'Herbalife' schill who steadfastly pretends to be living in a Utopia where everyone is beautiful, perfectly-proportioned, healthy, wealthy, happy and free (thanks to 'Herbalife' products and training), quotes from 'Chairman' Mao's 'Little Red Book.'
For the benefit of 'Capitalist' readers who are perhaps unfamiliar with these 'Communist' cultural references, the Schill is asking the 'Herbalife' faithful to take Mao as their role-model. He is describingthe step by step journey through the 'Herbalife' ranks to become a superhuman 'leader' (which he insists ordinary mortals like himself can undertake), and comparing it to Mao's 'Long March' which (although lasting 370 days during 1934-35 and totalling 8000 miles) is itself considered to be the 'Chairman's' first step towards the supreme leadership of Communist China. Mao later wrote that he was only able to complete his journey to the top, because of all the strong people around him.
I'm now wondering how long the 'Herbalife' Ministry of Truth will allow this highly-revealing admission to remain on the Net?
