In 1945, whilst most, contemporary mainstream commentators were unable to look beyond the ends of their noses, with a perfect sense of irony, George Orwell (1903-1950) presented fact as fiction in an insightful fairy story entitled, 'Animal Farm.' He revealed that totalitarianism is merely the oppressors' fiction mistaken for fact by the oppressed. In the same universal allegory, Orwell described how, at a time of vulnerability, almost any people's dream of a future, secure, Utopian existence can be hung over the entrance to a totalitarian deception. Indeed, the words that are always banished by totalitarian deceivers are, 'totalitarian' and 'deception.' Sadly, when it comes to examining the same enduring phenomenon, albeit with an ephemeral 'American/Capitalist' label, most contemporary, mainstream commentators have again been unable to look further than the ends of their noses. However, if they followed Orwell's example, and did some serious thinking, this is the reality-inverting nightmare they would find.
In the adult world of quantifiable reality, 'XANGO' has been the deceptively kitsch 'commercial' label hung over the entrance to a dissimulated 'Prosperity Gospel' cultic, blame-the-victim, closed-market swindle, or pyramid scheme, and related advance fee frauds. Inside this progressively-incomprehensible and expensive- to-play game of Utopian make-believe, an endless chain of ill-informed victims have been told that they can achieve unlimited health, wealth, happiness, etc., simply through exactly duplicating the 'positive' example of 'Xango winners' and buying a regular quota of 'XANGO' products each month whilst recruiting their own social contacts to 'duplicate the same lawful MLM sales and marketing plan.'
In theory, profits automatically multiply as an individual 'Xango Distributor's' own network is built through geometric progression. In practise, other than the insignificant number of schills at the top of the recruitment-chain, the hidden overall rolling insolvency/churn rate for the so-called 'XANGO income opportunity,' has been 100%.

Like the latter-day snake oil pedlars they are, deluded 'XANGO' adherents have recited a precisely-worded script which pretended more than 20 human health benefits for their unique star product, 'XANGO' juice, including 'anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-cancer, anti-ulcer, anti-hepatotoxic, anti-rhinoviral and anti-allergic effects.' Promotional material for the product merely states that 'research has been carried out' into XANGO's capacity to prevent all manner of illness, from leukemia, tumours and diabetes to Parkinson's disease, depression and fatigue, and that 'antioxidants from the inedible rind of fruit provide health benefits.' However, there is no independent research-based evidence to prove any of these vague, and/or essentially meaningless, anecdotal claims. Consequently, 'XANGO' has already attracted the attention of the Federal Drug Administration and widespread criticism from within the medical profession.
Reminiscent of 'Nutrilite Double X' (concocted by Carl F. Rehnborg in the 1940s), 'XANGO' juice is just an inert blend of mangosteen aril and pericarp purée with juice concentrates of eight other fruits: apple, pear (juice and purée), grape, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, cranberry and cherry. Other ingredients include citric acid, natural flavour, pectin, xanthan gum, sodium benzoate and patassium sorbate. Unfortunately, since 'XANGO' products have comprised cheaply-procured common substances, but offered at exorbitant fixed-prices (e.g. 750ml of 'XANGO' juice is almost $40), they have been effectively-unsaleable on the open-market. 'XANGO' juice is at best a harmless placebo, but due to its price, the liquid is the eqivalent of a valueless amalgam of shiny base-metals being offered at the cost of pure gold.

'XANGO, LLC,' has been the main contributor to the political campaign of Utah Senator, Orrin Hatch, giving $47 200 in 2008 and $46 700 in 2006. However, Orrin Hatch and various members of his family (in the 'lobbying' business) have been in receipt of huge quantities of stolen cash deriving from 'XANGO' and other similar 'Mormon' owned corporate structures registered in Utah. Indeed, the de facto agents of 'MLM income opportunity' racketeers have had a hand in writing an amendment to Utah State legislation, exempting 'MLM' schemes from common-sense statutes which previously banned all endless-chain, pyramid frauds. The Republican, 'Mormon' Attorney General of Utah, Mark Shurtleff, who supported this amendment (SB 182), has been heavily-backed by Utah-based 'MLM' racketeers. Furthermore, Shurtleff has been a speaker at 'MLM' orgies of deluded self-gratification. http://www.sequenceinc.com/fraudfiles/2007/08/utah-attorney-general-improperly-endorsing-usana-health-sciences/ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv-H096uZHU

It almost goes without saying that Orrin Hatch is also a Republican and an adherent of the 'Mormon Church.' He is a qualified attorney who has served as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orrin_Hatch
Yet again, when the wider-picture is examined, 'XANGO' is revealed as being one small part of a pattern of ongoing, major racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970, and clarified by subsequent US Supreme Court judgements); for without significant or sustainable external revenue, all so-called 'MLM income opportunities' have been variations of essentially the same cruel lie which has been repeated so often, that many people have come to accept it as the truth.
Again, it almost goes without saying that Mitt Romney has been receiving stolen money from the 'XANGO,' latter-day snake oil pedlars who continue to pose as 'Latter Day Saints.'
