Thanks for both of your opinions. That's pretty much what I was expecting to hear. I've tried talking with her--both gently and sternly. It's clear to me that what I say doesn't register with her. For instance, she recently went on a cleaning spree, and I noticed in previous posts that that can sometimes be assigned as homework. I asked her about it, and she jokingly replied "Yeah, Landmark is a crazy room-cleaning cult." When I responded by asking if she then agreed it was a cult, I was rebuffed with what can only be summarized as: You have your [wrong] idea, and you're entitled to it [even though you're wrong]. And I'm not going to argue with you. [Because I know you're wrong.]
I guess she's in a little deeper than I thought.
You should remind her about one of the basic LE's commandments:
"Give up being right even when you know you were"
How's that for flawed logic??? LE participants are incapable of self-reference even though they were endoctrinated by the use of destabilizing self-reference and flawed logic. It's the old "liar paradox" :
"Believe me when I tell you that I am not being honest with you".
or this more actualized sentence used by the newly reformed LF program:
"Remember this is not the truth"!!!
I'm always amazed to see how self-reference (flawed) logic is projected onto participants but that in return, they cannot make self reference to themselves and see how inconsistent and illogic their own lines of reasoning are.
As if something blew up inside their brain.
