All the arguments I've heard so far are cold, cynical, conspiratorial, full of fear and negativity. Cynicism never helps. It just closes the heart down. There are reds under the bed, black people are coming to get you, the aliens are coming, we need to get armed, the government is out to get us, there's poison in the water... you can believe in whatever weird theory you like, but it doesn't make it the truth.
Is it just Landmark you're against, or are there other things too? Is your hostility a function of your life? Does it show up anywhere else? Living in fear is not a great feeling and I would hazard a guess that those people who are scared Landmark will soul-suck or brainwash them are probably sacred of a lot of other things too.
This is an extremely manipulative post by Wolfy.
Perhaps he is just practicing handling objections using the Soft-Sell.
Its interesting his name is WOLFY. Reminds me of a WOLF in sheeps clothing!
The Landmarking has now started from Wolfy. (Personal Attacks)
* Don't be so cynical!
* you are paranoid!
* aliens are coming to get you!
* Commies are after you.
* you are a racist, (blacks are coming to get you)
* you are living in fear!
* you are scared of life!
* you are hostile!
* you are cold, cynical, conspiratorial, full of fear and negativity
* approach Landmark with an open mind!
Same old propaganda. I've seen almost the exact same words many times, same old garbage.
Its just a simple tactic, to try a get vulnerable people to DROP THEIR GUARD.
The Landmarking has STARTED in that post. The VICIOUS twisting of reality has started.
Telling the person they are "paranoid, cynical, scared of blacks, Commies, living in fear, hostile, cold, cynical, conspiratorial, full of fear and negativity".
Very twisted and ugly words from you Wolfy. Very sad.
That crud unfortunately works on vulnerable people who start to doubt themselves. This is the technique of the Landmark con-man.
Whenever one of these Landmarkians starts running the patterns like the one above, starting with PERSONAL CRITICISMS to try to get under his victims skin, WALK AWAY.
Tell him to F*** Off!!!
And WALK AWAY.
Wolfy has given the reader of this thread, a Masterclass in the "soft-sell" approach of Landmark.
They sometimes start with a soft-sell, and if the person has a Healthy Suspicion of Cultic Conmen, they try and turn THAT on the person, and start calling them "paranoid, racist, scared of Aliens". Then on it goes.
DO NOT LISTEN to Wolfy.
Be skeptical of conmen and salesman.
Be a Critical Thinker.
Don't fall for his garbage, and insults.
Thanks for helping more people stay away from Landmark!
I am sure your Landmark buddies will be "thrilled" with you OPENLY EXPOSING those manipulative Landmarks techniques in this anti-cult forum!
Keep it up!
