Yes Rick suffers from the NIH disease. (Not Invented Here). It’s a disease that cripples corporations and stiffles teamwork. Rick never could work on a team unless he was the boss. Otherwise he tries to kill it. Just like an infantile narcissist. The repost from Sarge makes me a little sad. She was really screwed over by her LW shepherds. And now she has passed on. She gave much to th

I’m betting that Gary didn’t learn anything new from the letters he got from the “new 360” evaluation. He already knew all of this. But did the evaluation to pay lip service to it. This way he could pretend that it was all new news to him. Clever.

During the last few years that JRS was alive, I was told in a backroom meeting that my lack of dedication was “killing John”. I carried that guilt for years. But now I see that it was a ridiculous accusation. Maybe his wife having an affair with Gary while he lay sick in bed was what was more deadly.

Have you seen recent photos of Jonestown? Not much is left. The jungle has reclaimed it. It has been erased. That’s my vision for Shiloh.

I remember a message from G&M where they talked about the one big mistake JRS made. They said his big error was that he “didn’t fully open up to Marilyn”. Looking back now, I think he had to wall her off since as his wife, she became a raging manipulative bitch. But he realized this too late, IMO.

Just three days ago, a vocal ex-TLW member was called out in public on Facebook by a TLW person as being “bitter and self-righteous”. Can you believe it? They’re still calling us names and trying to silence us. It all looks so ridiculous now.

I liked the podcast. It’s difficult to include everything in that podcast. There is so much material. One thing missing that I would have liked to have been discussed more is the mental health damage done. And what ex-members are doing about it. I would have liked to have heard a recommendation for people to seek out professional help if needed. I know this helped me greatly with my own dep
