Here, for our readers is another thread discussion.
Read down and notice how a visitor named Elaine showed up and urged the person to sort it out with the employer who had fired her husband (a sufferer from bipolar who had refused to do Landmark)
That advice would have kept the people in the Landmark snarl and would have delayed their consulting an attorney and woulda made them miss the all important filing deadline.
Landmark started out as Erhard Seminars Training and have 35 plus years of refining every possible method to sell, pressure and wheedle and whine and guilt trip to get people to do Landmark.
That kind of experience is power, folks and a lone citizen who lacks information cannot out think anyone on this.
We are human persons and social creatures and hence influenceable by our surroundings.
Its more empowering to recognize our vulnerability (read up on Zimbardos Stanford Prison Experiment [www.google.com
and Stanley Milgrams Obedience to Authority Experiment) [www.google.com
] to face, humbly our vulnerability to social pressure.
That gives us the real power of fact checking any group event BEFORE we expose ourselves.
