I relentlessly debated and presented facts to her this evening. It was the culmination of numerous e-mails laiden with articles, reports, and testimonies from former Landmark members - all agreeing that it is an LGAT/cult. She dismissed it all. She had no answer for why they edit negative articles to sound positive on their website. She had no answer for why government bodies, institutes such as this one, universities, and a large body of of experts from various fields all agree that Landmark uses LGAT and operates in a cult manner.
All she did "know" was that Landmark had helped her find true happiness and a better perspective of herself. She refused any notion of leaving Landmark, for even a few weeks, because she totally believes that they are improving her life - no matter what anyone else has to say. We, us, anyone and any organization, that thinks that Landmark is bad, is wrong and full of fear because they do not understand.
Beyond that, she repeatedly threatened to divorce me if I didn't stop badgering her with this idiocy immediately. I'm passing the word along to her family so they can jump into the fray as well. Divorce doesn't scare me - leaving her in the hands of Landmark does.
I want to add that this is another blantant example where landmark's philosophy breaks up relationships. We all know and you know it's the result of Landmark's endoctrination, but you will be "blamed" for breaking up the relationship because you are "resisting". The rethoric then goes on to say that the price you have to pay is to loose hapiness and longevity, and so on...
Because there is no possibility but to join them or to leave them, this is a conclusive evidence that Landmark is really a cult. Someday, somehow, I predict that a drama will happen to some of the managers that are running centers and are responsible for the breaking up love relationships. Such blatant form of deceipt is simply to hard to swallow. As if the First Amendment also confers the right to deceive.
