QuoteI highly recommend reading the whole article. It puts his 'master race'-oriented viewpoint in perspective imo. Hi Eggplant , I read the whole article as it ploughed on and on like an unrelenting juggernaut. I found it even more boring in style and tone than the VAST body of writings by Rudolph Steiner himself !.....and that is the whole point.....Dr Steiner was so prolific tha

Thanks for your posts Karenb. Re. growing up where you did and dysfunctional families....you mentioned Alcohol and Drugs but don't forget Gambling. My mum was addicted to it and I watched as our once gentile house became shabbier and shabbier as everything of value was sold to pay for her casino habit. She became less and less connected to the family and spent longer and longer there (&#

I am puzzled by this comment from "Eggplant" re: Rudolph Steiner I have learned that his personal history was commonly misrepresented by anthroposophists, specifically in regard to the Nazis and why he had to leave Germany under Hitler's regime. I always had the impression that it was because he was a dissenter but it isn't that simple. Rudolph Steiner died in 1

morgs, as I cannot edit. I know I'm insufferably cynical.That is the result of being dissolutioned after belonging to a cult for over thirty years...BUT... part of the Forever "respectability and we're really not all about making money" tactics is to push the line on being "nice" and "helping people" ,helping the others in your gr

Hi Morgs, Thanks for your reply to my post which I read with interest. I have a few comments. Firstly I found your tone just a touch patronising and as if you are a little superior and know better than others. Why? a) you say you are an FLP distributor but "don't need the money". You should try to understand that most people join these schemes because they do

I've just read this thread. The methods that seem to be used by " Meridien" make me cringe. I can understand why jaxtb was so very angry early in the thread,having lost his/her job as a result of this groups involvement in "Acme". I applaud Mr Ross for apparently understanding this situation and keeping his cool with rational explanation. Meridien give themselves

Why not show my posts to your parents. There's no need IMO to feel sorry for your parents. They've only become an FLP distributor that's all ! ( not joined a suicide cult! ) They should just keep aware and informed and not let the wool be pulled over their eyes. The NO CRITICISM or NEGATIVITY policy of FLP is a cult tactic which can prevent us from using CRITICAL THINKING

No, that hasn't happened to me.In fact the guy who sponsored me seems to be avoiding me! I think ( in my more enlightened retrospect) that he had a set plan....to interview several candidates until he had a signed up "batch" of them, and then put them through the "training" together ( quicker that way)...well my mother passed away last year, soon after I signed up,so

...as it really did focus the way I really felt about it all. FLP is cult-like in many ways....negativity or criticism is not tolerated and I'm sure that by pointing out some of these aspects of FLP I am breaking the company "code of practice"...which I received in the original literature with my combi-pack,but I never read ( but I will as I feel motivated now to take NOTHING m

A good question Carioca,and you are so right to be trying to find out more about a company that is so mega rich that nobody dares criticise it.This company also seems to have the world Aloe Vera market pretty much all sewn up in their own mega monopoly...or that's how it seems to me. When you try to find out about the basic constituent of over half their products ( Aloe Vera Barbedensis M
