What would the founders of the Indian Republic have made of the 'prosperity gospel' racket?

A long time ago, I came to the inescapable conclusion that it is actually impossible to exaggerate the potential menace posed by the creators of cults, or their significance to the history and future of civilization.
In previous posts, we have detailed how the reality-inverting, US-based 'prosperity gospel' cult known as 'Amway/Quixtar' entered India and set up a titanic racket behind a Trojan Horse corporate structure known as 'Amway India Enterprises.' 
In brief, during the 1990s, the Indian government altered its economic-protectionist policy which, since 1947, had kept lawful, and/or unlawful, foreign-controlled enterprises out of the Republic of India. At that time, the first in a series of copy-cat gangs of racketeers were allowed to release their self-perpetuating 'business opportunity' fraud on an unsuspecting Indian public. Agents acting for the bosses of the 'Amway' mob, persuaded ill-informed, and/or corrupt, Indian politicians and government officials to accept the lies that:
'Amway' is a multi-national 'direct selling' company which has operated lawfully in the USA and elsewhere since the 1950s.
'Amway India Enterprises' would respect Indian law and recruit non-salaried commission agents who would earn money from retailing products, and/or services, to the Indian public for a profit.
In reality, the bosses of  the 'Amway' mob have driven a coach and horses through the law in the USA and elsewhere for more than 50 years. They have successfully prevented, and diverted, investigation, and isolated themselves from liability, by setting up a Mafia-style labyrinth of (apparently independent) corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, enterprises and by using a proportion of their ill-gotten gains to infiltrate traditional culture. In this way, tens of millions of people around the world have been churned through the 'Amway' fraud, but the benificiaries of this ongoing, multi-billion dollar racket have never been fully held to account. During all of this period, the overall rolling failure-rate of the the so-called 'Amway business opportunity' has been effectively 100%, yet this piece of key information has been deliberately occulted from the public, whilst, by failing to challenge the authenticity of the so-called 'Amway business opportunity,' US regulators have effectively authorized fraud all around the globe.
No matter what the 'Amway' Ministry of Truth has steadfastly pretended to be reality, once people have signed up for 'Amway' they have been exposed (without their fully-informed consent) to co-ordinated devious techniques of social, psychological and physical persuasion designed to shut down their critical, and evaluative, faculties and convert them to the self-gratifying belief that, by exactly duplicating a plan of recruitment and self-consumption, and by excluding all 'Negativity' (i.e. all free-thinking individuals and any quantifiable evidence challenging the authenticity of 'Amway') anyone can achieve Total Financial Freedom.
It's not difficult to imagine what the founders of the Republic of India would have made of the 'prosperity gospel' racket.
