What is wrong with Ben Mack?
Can't he read text?
No one obviously called him a "cult leader" or a "danger to society".
Ben Mack fabricated that, he made it up in his head, and is being deliberately dishonest about it. Why? To try and use "contrast" to exaggerate accurate criticism of his methods, into a deliberate distortion.
He's trying to manipulate and persuade and confuse.
Ben Mack, the master of baffling with bullshit.
You also see how Ben Mack has warped, deliberately, the word "community", instead of talking about an open web forum where accurate criticism of his methods has been posted.
You can see how he also twists his alleged request to interview Rick Ross, and then implies that he is "afraid of him"?
What is there to be afraid of from Ben Mack in an interview? His master skills at covert persuasion? His alleged NLP skills which he does not have?
No, of course not.
Perhaps his taste in hats?
There is more material above that needs to be analyzed about the TACTICS used by Ben Mack in his seminars, and some of them he has copied from Richard Bandler, and others. Kicking people out of a seminar and berating them is a TECHNIQUE. That is a beat-down dominance technique used by many LGAT seminar leaders, they pick a few people out, and throw them out of the seminar for no reason, as it establishes Dominance for the leader, and submission for the customer.
You can be certain Dave Lakhani does that one too. Lakhani has even tried that one the internet, trying to exert dominance over people with bully tactics, which of course backfires.
People aren't as stupid as Dave Lakhani and Ben Mack think they are. No one cares that Dave Lakhani says he is 300 lbs, who cares? That might matter in a pie-eating contest, but not in the real world.
The only correct word Ben Mack used in his Twitter post was FRAUD.
Ben Mack advertises himself as a "Dr" and being an expert in various things he is not an expert at, like NLP.
Ben Mack has fabricated his book sales, and rankings, and many other things detailed in this thread.
Ben Mack calling himself a "fraud" is the only accurate thing he's said so far.
Except the other thing about tricking people to step into your greased chute sales system. [forum.culteducation.com
Speaking of fraud and advertising, when are Ben Mack and Dave Lakhani going to PROVE WITH FACTS, their alleged training in NLP?
They make claims, with NO PROOF of their alleged certifications in NLP, which they do not have, obviously.
Some people just make that stuff up, to try to promote themselves. Some people just lie, and say they are NLP experts, and they are not. They read a book, go to one seminar, then they lie and say they are experts, and try to scam people for money.
So Ben Mack calling himself a "fraud" on Twitter, that is accurate.
Ben Mack is an expert, an expert in confusion induction, bullshitting, exaggerating, and self-promotion.
Ben Mack primary technique seem to be...Baffle Them With Bullshit.
Ben BS Mack.
