Why is 'MLM income opportunity' fraud a form of cultism?

What a surprise, we have not yet received a single offer from any of the arrogant 'MLM' sheep who keep bleating their groups' scripted lies on Corporate Frauds Watch, to supply the quantifiable evidence (in the form of income-tax receipts) which would prove that someone has earned an overall-income from regularly retailing 'MLM' wampum to the public for a profit.

However, a journalist has contacted me about my booklet, 'The Universal Identifying Characteristics of a Cult,' to ask me if I could sum up why 'MLM income opportunityfraud is a form of cultism?   

This is what I replied:
An 'MLM income opportunity' cult can be briefly described as: A group of ill-informed persons who, without realizing, have become gradually dissociated from external reality by a dualistic, closed-logic, fictional scenario of 'positive versus negative, good versus evil, etc.' and who, as a result, have been effectively coerced into dissipating all their physical, financial and mental resources to the benefit of hitherto, unknown racketeers whom these dissociated persons falsely believe to be morally, and intellectually, superior philanthropists. 
Anyone who continues to claim that 'MLM' groups are not cults, or that cultism does not exist, should read some of the many comments of 'MLM income opportunity' adherents which are regularly posted on CFW, then consider the sobering fact that, despite tens of millions of individuals being churned through thousands of copy-cat 'MLM' groups over a period exceeding 50 years, no evidence exists that any of these deluded persons have received an overall income from retailing 'MLM' wampum to the public for a profit.

in amway

Forget about entry money. As long as there is 6-4-3 scheme, it is a money circulation scheme. If Amway is an honest business house, let them sell the goods in the regular market.

dear dear dear shyam

there is no 6-4-3 scheme.

you can clearly see that it is against code of conduct to do business as 6-4-3 scheme.

now it is just like pentaloons stores, ethnicity where their products are available on their stores only.

u did't give reply to my queries?

Shyam Sundar said...

The Amway India has still 6-4-3 scheme in its web site. How could anybody say that it is not there?
This is how the Amway IBOs induce the gullible to recruit more members into the scheme. I do not know which category you fall into Trivedi. Are you ignorant? Or innocent? Or one of those crooks out to cheat the fellow Indians.

What query lovingheart?

Dear Lovingheart, You are afraid of coming out with your real name. What could you do?
Do you know anybody who joined in this scheme and ready to file a complaint. kingasiaonline has no official address on its website nor its management. IF you know the name of any franchisees kindly forward to me. Then we could think of passing on information to the Police.
