Oh, all of these are direct quotes out of their "syllabus". I am not, nor have I ever been, an LGAT apologist. I have seen the serious damage that these people can do. If I can use my knowledge of language and cognitive processes in order to try to stop them, I will.
At this point, I am just doing this out of academic interest. I am a grad student in linguistics, and I have been interested in studying cults, landmark in particular, since I started my undergrad program. My (now ex)friend, who was by then a full-on lekkie, found out what I was doing and tried to stop me, tried to get me reported to Landmark so they "know that I was trying to sabotage them". He practically tried to kidnap me in order to get me to the stupid Forum.
At first I thought they just seemed creepy, maybe unhealthy, maybe good for some, bad for others? No way. Only an extremely dangerous group with more on their minds than just teaching people to live with "vitality" would be that concerned over an undergraduate research project that probably would never even be published.
I am very sorry if I brought back painful memories for you, Europe-girl. That was not my intention. I just hate these people for what they have done to the people on this board, and, in fact many people in my life. I think that they are dangerous organization, and that LGATs like them need to be stopped.
