Time for a little common sense

In view of the latest Indian judgement, perhaps Corporate Frauds Watch could immediately request the Andhra Pradesh High Court to instruct the Indian police in exactly how to conduct an intellectually-rigorous enquiry into the absurd, but nonetheless pernicious, activities of 'Amway India Enterprises.'
The Indian police should be clearly instructed not to waste their precious time and resources recording what the corporate officers of 'Amway India Enterprises' claim the company to have been doing (i.e. selling world-class products and services via 'Networks of Independent Business Owners'). Similarly, the Indian police should be clearly instructed not to allow themselves to be distracted by the piles of mathematical bullshit labelled the 'Amway Compensation Plan;' particularly, the deeply-misleading boast that 90% of all 'sales revenue' has been paid back to Indian 'Amway Distributors.'
The Indian police should be instructed to apply common sense at all times and to examine only quantifiable evidence. They will find that, due to a host of self-evident, anti-commercial factors (high-prices, banal quality, no limits on recruitment, etc.), virtually no one, other than the non-salaried commission agents of 'Amway India Enterprises,' has been purchasing the products and services supplied by the company. As a consequence of an almost total-absence of external revenue, the overwhelming majority of Indian participants in the effectively-hermetic and, therefore, economically-unviable 'Amway' trading scheme, have been powerless victims of a classic closed-market swindle, condemned to lose their money to the benefit of foreign-based racketeers. No matter how the impressive-sounding 90% of so-called 'sales revenue' of 'Amway India Enterprises' was divided up, it was, in fact, largely the participants' own cash to start with.
'Amway's' so-called Indian 'Independent Business Owners' have, in fact, been the latest links in an endless chain of poor persons around the globe to whom US-based, billionaire racketeers have (for the past 50+ years) been peddling infinite shares in their own finite money.
Once you know how the cruel 'MLM' labyrinth has been constructed, it is a relatively simple matter to shine a searchlight into it. The final load of bullshit piled up by the bosses of the'Amway' mob, and their propagandists, when caught in the piercing beam of this searchlight, has been to claim that all the tens of millions of transient participants who, down the years, have lost their time and money in the economically-unviable 'Amway' trading scheme, weren't participants at all, they were actually 'customers.'
