yeah, of course you are right, helpme2times, i guess that was a bit of a rhetorical question...and i forget that a lot of people are just way too innocent and trusting. Not like an old bird (ah, buzzard!) like me..seen way too many scams, and been the victim of a couple in my early years... i checked out that Dave's blog on one of the links, and find it interesting how he has that audio

yep, helpmetwotimes; what begs the question is WHY people even want to sign up to be taught these "tactics" and "tricks"... if a product is good, and people need or want it, they will buy it....but if your product is not good, then i guess you will have to resort to "tricks" and manipulative "tactics" to PUSH your product on unsuspecting people...just as

I was busy around the house and it just looked like a puff piece with celeb endorsements, so I didn't bother recording it.

With the style of brainwashing that Oprah's been doing over the past few months (or, rather, getting people to do it to themselves), I've been wondering what she's going to do next.

yep! I watched about 30 minutes of the show, as I was thinking, one cannot really comment about something when one does not know what it is all about, but it was just so simplistic and as you say "blah blah blah"; a simplified version of Goenka-ji's teaching of Vappasena, Budihism, Zen, but at the bottome of it, it all sounded so much like Landmark, with all their little catch phr

QuoteThe AnticultThere seems to be a debate...who's worse? Eckhart Tolle or Byron Katire? ET or BK? Eckhart Tolle is no bargain. He claims to be an Enlightened Master, and people believe him? He bashes the Mind yet claims he has an "intense conscious presence of the teacher". It is shocking that so many people seem to just believe anything anyone says. Just short speeches

What I remember most about the forum leaders is how immaculately dressed they are. The quality of their clothing, the healthy shine of their skin, the expensive jewelry and shoes. Then in contrast the "shabbiness" of the over-worked "volunteers" is quite marked. hmmmm, gee, I wonder why that is? Also, when I attended with my friend, Alan Edleman was the leader, and whe

Lots of people wouldn't believe this but Landmark and all the other cults are constantly trolling for, screening, and sifting for "volunteer" labor (slaves) -- the turnover's pretty high.
