You say: "the concept of brainwashing only makes sense if you want to be a victim".
How uninformed are you?
Do you know anything about bnrainwashing?
Do you know who Robert Jay Lifton is?
Do you know about his studies on brainwashing?
Do you know that he did studies on captured POWs who underwent brainwashing?
They must have wanted to be victims, according to your statement.
Your conversation is littered with LGAT-speak. For example: "If you take responsibility for your choices then this conversation and website wouldn't be happening."
You probably cannot even see but, trust me, people who have been through the LGAT experience, seen it for what it is, and come out the other side, can see it. Others who have been put through it indirectly by their association with LGAT VICTIMS, recognize it too.
Are you even aware of the clichéd LGAT thinking you exhibit in that sentence?
You're writing for the last time so hopefully you will consider these questions CRITICALLY in your own mind:
Are all people who claim to have been through brainwashing and written books afterwards lying? For example, Deborah Layton, who was involved with Jim Jones.
Does brainwashing not exist and it is merely a belief - "a reality people create" in LGAT-speak - manufactured by some great conspiracy?
According to your cold, lump-everyone-into-one-barrel thinking, everyone on this website must be screwed up. Yet, you have no idea as to the unique situations each and every person has been put through.
That includes people who have been subjected to harmful trainings, and that includes people who have been affected by them by the harmful influence they have had on loved ones.
Your last post is among the most insulting, heartless, screwed-up expressions of a narcissistic LGAT world view I have yet come across.
If this is the connection you have learnt to the world from Legacy, you have been duped.
thank you Brad69, you have said this much more eloquently than i could ever have done.
What a pity that people like every_day and 'thankful' are so trapped in their extraordinary, distorded altered reality they cannot hear how silly they sound. And even on the most basic level, they don't even notice how bad mannered they are.
I only hope that one day they will, and when that day comes I hope they can accept my apologies for getting so mad at them while they were trapped in their idiotic 'altered reality'. I guess I have to keep reminding myself that when they do finally "see the light", they will be overcome with dramatic feelins of shame, anger, confusion...i have to feel sorry for them.
