Rick, thanks for the heads up.
Yes, I am well aware that is how you perceive me. Wanna hear something else even more interesting? I knew about your site as well as other, similar in nature, websites, prior to attending the Forum - and for a while, I thought Landmark Education was a scam. Until I saw people who were far more intellectual and experienced than me, come out of it with something I couldn't quite put my finger on... which eventually had me enrolled in the Forum.
Then I went for it anyway, in spite of my prior beliefs about it. In your view, I must be stupid then because I paid for something I didn't like or didn't know anything about, yet was curious to find out what all the fuss was about since the 1970's ....
Since you've obviously already resigned yourself from attending the Landmark Forum, why do you continue to engage in smearing everything I have to say about my experience with it? As I said, I'm not offering advice, I'm merely sharing my experience - if someone wants to put that to use, that's fine. If not, that's fine too.
I hope we can continue the discussion in a civil tone, without namecalling and ad hominem arguments.
How about a pound of salt?
Considering your primary cited source of enlightenment (Landmark Education) concerning much of what you say, most people here will likely disregard your adives, or as you say "leave it."
Anyone that takes the time to seriously investigate Landmark and review its history objectively can easily understand this, i.e. a person that is not emotionally invested in the company's programs.
You don't come across so much "preachy" as a tape recorded message reciting Landmark's slogans and mantras.
Pragmatist: Are you that self focused? That arrogant?
That you ignore the people who have gone to these LGAT's and have had these philosphies destroy their lives as they tried to apply it in life.
If 5 people out of 100 come out of these LGAT's and create destruction from it in their lives.
Since 95 people didn't destroy their lives by it. Does that make you think these LGAT's are not bad?
I for one feel if 1 out of 100 hundred is destroying there life by these LGAT's. It is enough to be concerned about.
Even if it was 1 in 1000.
Who cares about the number ratio.
The ones that are having destruction in their lives are people. I am one of them. I matter, and even the messed up LGAT's say I matter.
Yet, for some reason when it comes to pointing out the destruction from these LGAT's that have been shared by myself, and many on this website.
The truth comes out. We (I) don't matter as we (I) are tossed on the pile of rubbish of others who have not had the results that are bragged about by these LGAT's in their lives.
Funny how slimy these companies become when faced with this destruction in past participants lives though.
Not coming from a victim mindset here. Just holding these LGAT's accountable for what they have taught us in these seminars.
ACCOUNTABILITY..... Something LGAT's don't want to be held too.
