QuoteNancy Drew those Sterling jerks just don't get it. They're like adult babies, the schoolyard bullies who have lost their potency in the real world so have to create an artificial world where they can control everyone there... Bingo! That's it exactly, whether it's Sterling, Scientology, or any of the other "empowerment" programs. They are all in the busi

QuoteJaredDCSo, a couple of friends of mine have really suggested that I try out the Landmark Forum. I've heard alot of what they say they can do and it sounds appealing- for instance how they can really improve your sense of self confidence. On a good day, that's just sales training -- better gotten someplace like Dale Carnegie. On a not-so-good day, it's training on how to m

Quotecaligari I'm surprised that hynosis isn't brought up more in discussing Landmark and it's methods, particularly in journalistic articles. It's possible to discount brainwashing since it's a term that loosely used and often not exact. It's original meaning was though reform through physically coerced methods like the North Korean origins. This can be contested

Quoteskeptic Ellen, I guess you're saying that IF one can see the truth the CON is no longer working. The nature of a successful con is that it does not look like a con. I see what you're saying. There have been long term victims who have written about a separate or parallel "self," awareness, or consciousness hidden away from the cult "self" that quietly

QuoteBlue PillQuoteZorro Scary Hey? I sent this book to a few Lekkies to see if it would shake the programming - no joy. It seems that past a certain point the brainwashing is irreversible.

QuoteZorro Very well put Ellen you pretty much summed up what happens to a person in Landmark when looking back at the experience and now in my case from the outside. I can identify exactly what your talking about. I am so very sorry this has happened to you Zorro.

QuoteZorroI found it an interesting take on things. If you want to see something really good go back to the site and check out the BBC documentary on Scientology. I now think of Scientologist as a freaking Goon Squad. If they don't like someone they just outright try to destroy them. Has Landmark ever tried to destroy a person, other than in Litigation? I am curious to know, since Weener

Just saw a hilarious commercial on CNN. Someone at American Airlines must have been persuaded to attend one of these silly seminars and his take on the situation was to ~create~ a laugh-out-loud parody of a hapless participant looking for the nearest telephone to book his early flight out, making his escape on American Airlines, of course. It's a hoot with the "trust" exercise, t

I wonder if this Vancouver Bulletin Board that was posted to another thread has gotten them stirred up. (I find it telling that someone uses the possessive in reference to the Forum.

QuoteAnti-Forum GalI wonder if the following is true? (it's from that message board that I linked to here earlier): A former acquaintance who's become heavily involved with Landmark confided in a few of us that Landmark intends to "take over Vancouver" (which is second only to NYC in "enrollments"). This must be part of their schtick. If it's not a tow

Yep... Sure enough. I heard a jarring phrase uttered by Queen Noor of Jordan in an interview recently -- something about "showing up in one's life" or "how something shows up for one" or something similar. I filed it away, thinking maybe she was affecting the speech of someone else or mistakenly picked up this phrase somewhere. But guess what: pull up her name

QuoteZorroMartinH, What were they saying about Mother Teresa's work? I don't recall much if anything. Now at the Center where I took Landmark they were always referring to Ghandi and his great work. They seemed to be really into the whole passive resistance thing....mainly getting people to be passive. Which I can only see two things from it. Passive to the state that a person

And 'graduates' just love to justify their allegiance by bragging about all the good that LEC offers to organisations (the police force, etc).
