Why do you think Bernard Poolman & Co picked "world hunger" as an issue to use?
Because no sane person is against children eating food!
Its simply another PR stunt, like head-shaving, like the Hitler nonsense, sex, and the rest of it. The Raelians use similar techniques.
The people posting here about Desteni are very very experienced people in the world of identifying these kinds of manipulative groups like Desteni. There is AMAZING info in this thread.
These kinds of groups SAY one thing, and DO another.
But to just take one issue, how is "Desteni" going to do anything to end world hunger? Desteni can't even pay their own bills themselves!
It looks like a founder of Desteni went bankrupt a few years ago, as shown in this thread.
There are dozens of WARNING SIGNS about Desteni to the trained eye.
Groups like Desteni are NOT about what they say in their PR and online statements. That is the DISTRACTION.
The trained-eye looks behind the curtain at what is really going on.
What is really going on with Desteni is explained in this thread.
If your boyfriend asked you to read this thread, please consider it, and open your mind, and look at all sides of the issue. People posting here are trying to help those who are getting duped by this Desteni system, which has been seen hundreds of times.
When you see groups use the EXACT same techniques 400 times, it gets pretty obvious.
Guys like Bernard Poolman, in fact, are much less experienced in these techniques that many others, including many posting in this thread. But even an amateur like that, can do SERIOUS damage.
James Arthur Ray was also an incompetent, talentless hack, but he made a lot of money, and now 4 people are DEAD, there is a criminal trial, and many others injured in many ways.

James Ray was identified and EXPLAINED in these threads in MINUTES after he appeared on Oprah, over a year before 4 people ended up dead.
JAMES ARTHUR RAY EXPOSED Feb 2007 [forum.culteducation.com
"Oprah has also unleashed 2 more new Age Gurus on the soccer moms of America to be milked like fattened cattle.
James Ray: who is a new Werner Erhard type, very slick and sleazy, and who is a Tony Robbins clone, repeating Robbins exact words verbatim, over and over.
He said there is World Peace in HIS world, because he ignores the world.
Oprah just crowned this sleazy salesman James Ray the new Werner Erhard. There were some horrible complaints about this guy on the Oprah boards, people getting ripped off 10K, and lots of people burning their feet in his "fire-walk" and not being allowed to go to the hospital. This guy is very bad."
