Curbing the menace of 'MLM business opportunity' cultism
Monil has posted this comment on Corporate Frauds Watch, containing an important question:
'I would like to bring to the notice of the readers that people in Bangalore are being now cheated in the name of "independent business opportunity with limitless income." Please let me know how do I curb this menace? Many ignorant Bangaloreans are falling into the "MLM Amway" trap, the version called as "Britt world wide." '
Perhaps the only effective way to curb the menace of 'MLM business opportunity' fraud is for as many free-thinking people as possible to complain loudly to law enforcement agents, legislators and to the media, and to continue to complain loudly. In reality, 'Britt World-Wide' is just one corporate structure forming the US-based, major organized crime group most-commonly referred to as 'Amway/Quixtar'. Bill Britt is the ostensible boss of 'Britt World-Wide', but (to date) he has never faced criminal charges. However, Mr. Britt's extensive racketeering activities were clearly exposed by national television in the USA in 2003. It might, therefore, be a good idea to direct the attention of Bangalorean law enforcement agents, legislators and journalists to this television programme http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuEfVbnCT2Qhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR2_m3lefOI&feature=related.
That said, 'MLM' is no ordinary racket and few law enforcement agents, legislators or mainstream journalists have the time, or inclination, to comprehend the wider-implications of what is only the latest evolutionary stage of an ongoing historical phenomenon. The Utopian myth that 'MLM' is a viable way to achieve 'total financial freedom' based on the 'Christian principle of helping others,' was originally tailored to fit the spirit of post-WWII America, but, over the years, it has been adapted to lure and exploit all-manner of ill-informed and vulnerable people around the world. Today, the majority of people (whatever their culture) do not want to listen to Christian Evangelists preaching the two thousand year-old, closed-logic 'Gospel' of exclusive future redemption in Heaven for those who believe without question. However, the same religious sceptics will often fail to recognize that 'MLM' racketeers are essentially-identical Evangelists, but who are preaching an up-dated, and perverted, closed-logic 'Gospel' of future financial redemption on Earth for those who believe without question. Unfortunately, the wealthy bosses of numerous cultic groups continue to enslave the unwary with essentially the same pay-to-play game of make-believe. This blame-the-victim charade has been designed to manipulate the existing beliefs and instinctual desires of its players, creating the illusion that they are excercising free-will. The basic design for the cultic trap has remained the same down the centuries even if the bait has become evermore sophisticated.
