One thing that is a reoccurring theme in my life is the Ex-NXIVM apologist. They seek me out for a variety of reasons. Some to explain how the “technology” was good but it was corrupted by Raniere or how their 5 day intensive gave them the courage to speak in public. I guess they somehow want me to validate their experience.
Well let me tell you it ain’t gonna happen.
Newsflash there is no “Technology” never was, never will be.
Sure you were taught a few psychological tricks that you could have learned for free with a library card and a few self-help books. You were conned plain and simple. Now don’t feel bad people are conned every day. As my struggling Ukrainian and Russian friends say who fight for every dollar they make. Johnnnn you fucking Americans are soooooo stupid. Harsh yes, but sometimes it takes someone who really works hard for their money to see a con man for what he is.
And con man is exactly what Raniere is as this exclusive video shows from the GURU’s younger days. Back then he was just a struggling alleged pedophile hanging around middle schools trying to make eye contact with vulnerable children while putting the skills he learned hawking Amway to good use. But even then it didn’t take long for his paper empire to fall apart.
See Raniere hasn’t changed, he’s still preying on the people who think if they just find the “right tools” or “Technology” they will be rich or happy or get laid more or even once, but in the end all NXIVM will leave you is a little poorer and hopefully a little wiser and the first step to that is admitting to yourself.
There is no “Technology” I was scammed!
Now don’t you feel better admitting that to yourself?
On an old thread someone asked this question
how does someone on disability afford to travel the world like you.
And I answered Ben lives on said...
I wasn't born disabled. My travels now are pretty tame. Owning a house in Saratoga that tripled in value didn't hurt. Being disabled doesn't mean dumb any more than being born rich doesn't make you smart
Half of life is showing up and be grateful for what you have, learn from what you fucked up and admit your mistakes and try not to make them twice. As long as you can walk, have enough to eat, a place to sleep and your soul isn’t bound to a cult you’re doing pretty good. There wasn’t that sage advice?
And like most of the truly good advice you receive that hasn’t been twisted by cult serving “data” it’s free.
