'Multi-Level Marketing' and 'Scientology' rackets - It was good while it lasted.

Although many people have had, and keep having, essentially the same insight, more than 10 years ago, I formulated the following analysis as part of an essay entitled, 'A common-sense approach to cultism:'



Young children’s unconscious acceptance of ‘Santa Claus’ as total reality, stems from a fictitious scenario reflected as fact by the traditional culture in which they live. Up to a certain age, children are not equipped to challenge the model of reality offered to them by authoritarian figures within their family groups; particularly, their parents. Therefore, once children have been converted to a self-gratifying, non-rational belief in ‘Santa,’ the truth (that they are actually being deceived by the people whom they instinctively love, trust and follow) is unthinkable.

Negative / Positive 


The scenario can then be expanded to modify children’s behaviour — ‘Santa’ has magical powers… he can see and hear everything they do at all times… he will reward them for unquestioning belief and punish them for dissent. Only when they attain the necessary level of intellectual/psychological development, can children begin to use their critical and evaluative faculties and come to realise that ‘Santa’ is merely a game of make believe.


 



If you think about it, what I’ve just described is the most elementary form of self-perpetuating, non-rational/esoteric, ritual belief system - perfectly tailored to fit infantile minds, and reliant on the maintenance of an absolute monopoly of information presented using a constant repetition of reality-inverting key words and images combined with pseudo-scientific mystification and closed-logic.



Naughty or Nice?


When analysed with the same level of intellectual rigour, many of the basic procedures and conditions required to establish cultic groups turn out not to be a mystery at all. They are revealed as only more-sophisticated versions of those which also propagate the benign ‘Santa’ deception. As such, they are frighteningly easy to replicate. However, the instigators of cults are anything but benign and, interestingly, many of their most-deluded subjects and convincing apologists turn out to be well-educated adults who have simply become incapable of facing the ego-destroying reality that they’ve been fooled by what is merely a game of make believe.





No sane person would ever suggest trying to ban Santa,’ and everyone lies to their children at some time to modify their behaviour, but consider the variety of destructive behaviour that an authoritarian adult (with hidden criminal objectives) could get dependent children to follow by exploiting their unconscious acceptance of the same imaginary, but nonetheless emotionally and intellectually overwhelming, narrative as total reality. 




The unpalatable truth is that, just by perverting the closed-logic rules of the 'Santa' game, anything - from theft by proxy to sexual, and/or violent, abuse - becomes possible.

Regular readers will know that on Friday December 13th 2013, I posted an article in which I explained exactly why the recent UK Supreme Court ruling concerning the American-based organization known as 'Scientology,' is flawed and dangerous.

To date, no one has attempted to refute the contents of my article. However, it prompted an anonymous (presumably American) reader to post the following, thoughtful question, in the form of a comment:

'You have raised a very obvious point. This ruling is as you say, flawed and dangerous, because these judges don't warn that 'religions' can be created by crooks and crazies. But I'd like to know why these judges, who are not legislators and not democratically-accountable are making the law in England?'

To which I posted the following reply:

The Supreme Court is a new institution in the UK. Its members are following an established principle in law where, by interpreting existing laws, the most-senior and experienced judges do have the power effectively to make laws, rather than to enact new laws.

This principal relies on Judges being of a high moral and intellectual calibre.

The problem here, is that this Supreme Court ruling is an interpretation of a recent law which prohibits 'religious' discrimination in Britain, but for some mysterious reason, 'religion' was not defined in the anti-discrimination law. This means, that it has been left to the members of the Supreme Court to fill in the gap, but what they have come up with, demonstrates that they had a pitifully low-level of understanding of the criminogenic phenomenon lurking behind Louisa Hodkin's angelic smile and
'religious' jargon.

When this issue was being debated in parliament, certain members did try to point out the danger in having an anti-religious discrimination law which did not define religion. I believe 'Scientology' was actually mentioned at the time by members of the Conservative opposition, but these common-sense fears were brushed aside by members of the Labour government, who said that 'Scientology' was not considered to be a religion in an existing High Court ruling, and that this situation would not alter. 

In other words, either the Labour government, and its advisers, made a huge error of judgement, or someone was telling lies.

Thus, the only way that this recent unsafe ruling can be overturned, would be for the Conservative government immediately to change the existing legislation and introduce a brief legal definition of 'religion,' but specifying that, without exception, all organizations styled as 'religious,' but which can be, or have been, proven to have been engaged in a chronic pattern of unlawful activity, would not be granted the privileges accorded to religions, or would risk being sanctioned by the loss of all such privileges.


(NB. In the definitive UK Supreme Court Ruling, handed down in December 2013, which apparently granted the US-based organization known as 'Scientology,' legal status of 'religion' in the UK, and which was widely reported as containing a new legal definition of religion in Britain, Lord Toulson took great pains to emphasise that the Supreme Court had not, in fact, produced a 'definitive formula,' but merely a 'description' of religion).


__________________________________________________


Without naming names, at about the same time that I published my article, I had a long conversation with a young (?) fellow (a spokesman for the UK Supreme Court). Even though I carefully explained to this undoubtedly well-educated person that :

- more than half a century of evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that what has laughably been labelled 'Dianetics,' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic pseudo-science, and that the impressive-sounding made-up term 'Church of Scientology' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigator, and associates, of an ongoing, major, organized crime group (hiding behind a labyrinth of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a blame-the-victim advance fee fraud (dressed up as 'religious/self-betterment/spiritual' programsand various other related-abuses of trust; -

he eventually failed the Turing Test, and recited a thoughtless script:

'If criminal acts have taken place in the UK, then the victims should report them to law enforcement agencies: not to the Supreme Court.' 

When I then asked: 

To which agency of UK law enforcement does one report ongoing 'criminal acts' which include the perpetrators using de facto agents to deceive members of the UK Supreme Court into granting them official tax-free religious status, thus preventing victims from facing reality and complaining?

there was no reply.






LRH'll fix it.


Today, it is very difficult to determine the exact total number of persons around the world who have been churned through the pay-through-the-nose-to-play 'Scientology' cultic game of make-believe, since it was first peddled as reality by L. Ron Hubbard, under the comic-book title of 'Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health,' back in the early 1950s. It is also important to distinguish between chronic, and short-term, losing players. One thing is certain, the overwhelming majority of 'Scientology' victims have remained silent and continue (unconsciously) to form part of the overall lie: whilst, as a direct result of the passivity of the overwhelming majority of the victims, all casual observers of 'Scientology' (including, law enforcement agents, regulators, academics, legislators, judges, journalists, etc.) have also remained passive and continue (unconsciously) to form part of the overall lie.


Yet, there can be no excuse for anyone in Britain (least of all Supreme Court Judges, and/or their representatives), being ignorant of the fact that extensive acts of abuse can remain hidden indefinitely, simply by the perpetrator(s) silencing the victims. However, one would have assumed that the members of the UK Supreme Court would have been wise enough to know that: 

'people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.' 


Jimmy Savile - Britain's most-notorious and prolific paedo-sexual predator.

For decades, hundreds of Savile's victims remained silent and continued to form part of the overall lie that the outrageously-kitsch DJ couldn't possibly be a perverted criminal. As a direct result of the passivity of the overwhelming majority of Savile's victims, all casual observers also remained passive and continued (unconsciously) to form part of the overall lie.

Thus, in this article, I will explain how, by steadfastly pretending to be a religious-inspired, latter-day saintly Santa Claus figure, a wealthy narcissistic criminal, Jimmy Savile, infiltrated traditional culture and groomed a nation in order secretly to abuse (sexually and psychologically) many hundreds of silent, under-age victims over a period spanning six decades, but first, I will explain how, by steadfastly pretending to be religious-inspired, latter-day saintly Santa Claus figures, starting in the 1950s, a succession of copy-cat, wealthy, narcissistic criminals, have infiltrated traditional culture and groomed the world in order secretly to abuse (financially and psychologically) many millions of silent, adult victims.

In 1945, whilst most, contemporary mainstream commentators were unable to look beyond the ends of their noses, with a perfect sense of irony, Eric Arthur Blair a.k.a. 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 '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.

More than half a century of quantifiable evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that what has become popularly known as 'Multi-Level Marketing' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic, economic pseudo-science, and that the impressive-sounding made-up term 'MLM,' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigators, and associates, of various, copy-cat, major, and minor, ongoing organized crime groups (hiding behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a series of blame-the-victim closed-market swindles or pyramid scams (dressed up as 'legitimate direct selling income opportunites'), and related advance-fee frauds (dressed up as 'legitimate training and motivation, self-betterment, programs,' etc.).



It is only recently that the UK authorities, and mainstream media, began to discover: 
  • how many victims were abused by Jimmy Savile.
  • why so few of Savile's victims ever complained.

 However, an increasing number of people keep asking me:
  • How many victims have wasted their time and money in 'Multi-Level Marketing' scams?
  • Why do so few 'MLM' victims ever complain?
The short answer to the second of these frequently-asked questions, is that the overwhelming majority of all the countless millions of victims who have continued to get burned by individual 'MLM Income Opportunity/Prosperity Gospel' cults, have remained silent and will continue (unconsciously) to form part of the overall lie: whilst, as a direct result of the passivity of the overwhelming majority of the victims, all casual observers of individual 'MLM income opportunity/Prosperity Gospel' cults (including, law enforcement agents, regulators, academics, legislators, judges, journalists, etc.) have also remained passive and will continue (unconsciously) to form part of the overall lie. 


Carl. F. Rehnborg

Today, it is very difficult to determine exactly how many people in total around the world have already been churned through the pay-through-the-nose-to-play 'MLM Income Opportunity/Prosperity Gospel' cultic game of make-believe, since it was first peddled as reality by Carl F. Rehnborg, under the name of 'Nutrilite Inc. /Mytinger and Casselberry Inc.' back in the late 1940s. It is also important to distinguish between short-term and chronic 'MLM' losing-players. In general, the overwhelming majority of fraud victims never complain, but, right from the outset, the self-perpetuating 'MLM Income Opportunity/Prosperity Gospel' lie was maliciously designed to implicate its victims - loading them with shame and guilt, and, thus, prevent them from ever facing reality. Classically, the quantifiable evidence proves that, without exception, chronic 'MLM' losing-players have been subjected to co-ordinated devious techniques of social, and psychological, persuasion designed to shut down their critical, and evaluative, faculties. In this way, they have been conditioned (unconsciously) to think of themselves, not as the victims of a cruel deception or as brainwashed cult adherents, but as 'Independent Business Owners' exercising free-will.  What has made external reality even more unacceptable, is the ego-destroying fact that a large proportion of 'MLM' victims were deceived by a close friend or relative (acting under the guided-delusion that 'MLM' has been of great benefit to its participants) and, in turn, these victims then deceived, or tried to deceive, their own close friends and relatives (acting under the same guided-delusion that 'MLM' has been of great benefit to its participants). The few, destitute, chronic former 'MLM' losing-players who have managed to recover fully their critical, and evaluative faculties, and who have filed well-informed civil lawsuits against the corporate fronts of 'MLM' cultic racketeers, have invariably been obliged to settle out of court. Although a number of isolated civil investigations, and successful prosecutions, have been pursued by the Federal Trade Commission against some smaller 'MLM' front-companies in the USA, no co-ordinated official effort has ever been made to face wider-reality and identify, let alone tackle, the overall criminogenic/cultic phenomenon that has lurked behind all the shielding layers of structural, and pseudo-economic/scientific, mystification, reality-inverting 'direct selling/commercial'  jargon and kitsch capitalist/Utopian/American Dream imagery.


   


Until the 1970s, the original 'MLM Income Opportunity/Prosperity Gospel' cultic racket  'Nutrilite' a.k.a.'Amway,' remained confined to the USA. In the face of a prolonged (but far-from morally, or intellectually, rigorous) FTC investigation, the 'Amway/MLM' lie first spread to Canada, then to W. Europe and Australia. However, in 1979, when a corrupt, and/or naive, US federal judge failed to identify 'Amway' as the corporate-front for an ongoing, major, organized crime group, this classic regulatory-failure was widely-seen as a license to steal. Since that time, countless US-based copy-cat rackets have been instigated behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures pursuing lawful, and/or unlawful, enterprises - a significant number of which ('Forever Living Products', 'Herbalife', 'USANA', 'Nu Skin', 'Xango' etc.),  have been allowed to grow out of control and to infiltrate traditional culture all around the globe, accompanied by a distracting flock of co-opted political, academic and celebrity stooges, and shielded by a parallel labyrinth of legally-registered corporate structures known as, 'Direct Selling Associations.'

In the past, various casual observers have thrown up their hands in horror when I have dared to say that, given its duration, scale and devastating impact on huge numbers of vulnerable persons,  blame-the-victim 'MLM Income Opportunity/Prosperity Gospel' cultic racketeering is an ongoing financial, and psychological, holocaust (with a small 'h') of which many people have been in denial. Sadly, the essentially-absurd fairy story entitled 'MLM' has been allowed to expand to such titanic proportions, that the truth has long-since become almost unthinkable. However, since the concept of the big propaganda lie, is widely-understood, it seems almost inconceivable that the directors of law enforcement, and intelligence, agencies around the world have also remained unable to look beyond the ends of their noses and identify what the bosses of 'MLM/Prosperity Gospel' cults have actually been doing. 




The following sinister quote has often been attributed to one of history's most-sinister criminals, Joseph Goebbels: 






'If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.'

Given its content, it is supremely ironic that there is no evidence for Goebbels ever having made the above statement. That said, it is a very accurate description of Goebbels' reality-inverting activities as Adolf Hitler's propaganda chief. Indeed, before his cowardly suicide in the face of reality, Goebbels spent the last years of his life steadfastly pretending that the heroic and enlightened leader of the 'Noble Aryan Master Race,' Adolf Hitler, was telling the truth, whilst the leaders of Britain and the USA (controlled by the forces of evil - Jews and Freemasons) were repeating big propaganda lies.




The origin of the first part of the above Goebbels statement would appear to have been a psychological profile of Adolf Hitler, compiled in the USA during WWII by the 'Office of Strategic Services,' later to become known as the 'CIA.' This document concluded that : 



'His (Hitler's) primary rules were: 
never allow the public to cool off; 
never admit a fault or wrong; 
never concede that there may be some good in your enemy;
never leave room for alternatives;
never accept blame; 
concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; 
people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.' 



Hitler's psychological profile was drafted (prior to the full-extent of his crimes against humanity being discovered) by a team of medically-qualified academics who had apparently been studying 'Mein Kampf,' Chapter 10:

 '... in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad mass of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly outrageous lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.' 





Adolf'll fix it!  - It was good while it lasted.


Despite appearances, Hitler was not confessing to being a liar in Chapter 10 of 'Mein Kampf.' This was merely a typically-mediocre little narcissist (who imagined himself to be a great author/thinker - the anointed-Messiah/saviour of his people) revealing his extraordinary knowledge of how to lie successfully whilst steadfastly pretending to be struggling to establish the truth against the reality-inverting forces of evil. Hitler would soon transform into a megalomaniacal psychopath. The unconditional deference of his deluded followers only served to confirm, and magnify, his own increasingly-paranoid, and self-righteous, delusions of grandeur.






For decades, Jimmy Savile was a national celebrity in Britain. Today, he is universally recognised as a callous and cunning sex offender who hid in plain view by grooming not only his victims, but also the British nation. Yet when the mainstream UK media reported the death of a 'British Icon/legend,' Sir James Wilson Vincent Savile OBE KCSG (1926-2011), his official obituaries were all respectful and positive. That said, it is highly-revealing to note that little was made of the fact that Savile lived and died alone, whilst the editors of certain well-known publications were so lazy that they couldn't even be bothered to find an accurate spelling of his name.

If readers would like to discover just how utterly-duped casual observers of Jimmy Savile were, then I suggest they read this sycophantic interview (linked below).

  


The interview first appeared in MENSA magazine and then it was re-published (+ additions) on the day of Savile's death. Unbelievably, MENSA is an association for persons with an IQ test score in the top 2%, and of which Jimmy Savile was a long-time member


.


Born the youngest of 7 children in a lower middle-class family in the Yorkshire city of Leeds, Savile spent the latter years of WWII as a conscripted coal miner. After recovering from a spinal injury caused by an explosion, for a while after WWII, Savile was known as an aspiring semi-professional cyclist and professional wrestler, but he is credited with being the person who, in 1947, invented the profession of Disc Jockey (i.e. using a microphone to introduce continuous recorded dance music on twin turntables).





A flamboyant, eccentric and classless personality, who perfectly-reflected the upwardly-mobile spirit of Britain in the 1950s and 1960s, Savile transferred from 
owning, managing and performing in dance halls, to presenting radio and television.




Savile became particularly associated with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) where, from the 1960s to the 1990s, he fronted various popular radio and television shows. 1975-1994, he played the role of a kitsch, Rolls-Royce driving, cigar-smoking Santa usually dressed in a track suit or lounge suit and dripping with gold jewellery, on a television show called 'Jim'll Fix It.'




At the height of Savile's fame, 'Jim'll Fix It' (on which he fulfilled the dreams of  ordinary folk, but particularly, under-privileged youngsters) attracted huge television audiences. In 1985, he even persuaded a former Master of the Rolls (Britain's second most-senior Judge), Lord Denning (1899-1999), to appear on the show.



Jimmy Savile is one of the few celebrities to have featured twice on the UK version of 'This is Your Life.'



Apart from his career in entertainment, which made him into a multi-millionaire, Savile (who claimed to be a devout 'Roman Catholic') is estimated to have raised around £40 millions for charity; particularly, Stoke Mandeville Hospital (which specializes in spinal injuries), where he worked as a volunteer porter and was given his own apartment. 


Savile also worked as a volunteer porter at the Leeds General Infirmary and at Broadmoor secure hospital (in which some of the most dangerous criminally-insane offenders in Britain are held). 

Savile also supplied substantial funds  to sponsor Leeds University medical students in the University Research Enterprise scholarship scheme.


Savile became a celebrated charity marathon runner; finishing the London marathon as recently as 2005, when he was 79 years old.






As result of his charity work, in 1972, Savile was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire. However, in 1990, he was awarded a Knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours list. 






Later in 1990, Savile was created Knight Commander of the Order of Saint Gregory the Great, by Pope John Paul II. Over the years, he was also awarded a string of honorary academic titles.

Savile was often described as a friend of the late Princess Diana and a friend and unofficial adviser to Prince Charles.

Sir-Jimmy-Savile-funeral-Gold-coffin-1.jpg






In October 2011, Savile's funeral (for which he left detailed instructions) included the public displaying of a his closed gilded coffin in the Queen's Hotel Leeds, followed by a service at Leeds Cathedral and burial in the Yorkshire coastal resort of Scarborough.






In the summer of 2012, an auction of Savile's personal possessions (including a silver Rolls-Royce convertible) raised several hundred thousands pounds for charity.











Soon afterwards, various UK newspapers reported that a number of women were claiming that they had been sexually-molested or raped by Savile during the 1960s and 1970s. One of these persons was just 14 years old at the time, but it was believed that Savile had targeted girls as young as 12. Investigative reporters at the BBC, had previously uncovered the same scoop, but a planned television expose was suppressed and, instead, a tribute to Sir Jimmy Savile was broadcast by the BBC.








An independent television documentary, broadcast October 3rd 2012, contained the same allegations and interviews with Savile's victims. These revealed that Savile often targeted vulnerable youngsters who already had problems with authority and who, therefore, would probably remain silent, knowing that they would not be believed. Classically, Savile then groomed his young victims, by pretending affinity with them whilst identifying what they most wanted (cigarettes, sweets, perfume, trips to the BBC, contact with pop stars and celebrities). He then offered to fulfil his victims' dreams, but in exchange for giving him unlawful sexual gratification. In technical terms, Savile was a predatory, and habitual, paedo-sexual offender who could be physically, and/or psychologically, violent, and/or intimidating, but without exception, employed co-ordinated devious techniques of social and psychological persuasion to perpetrate his crimes and prevent his victims from complaining.




Almost immediately, the London Metropolitan Police announced, that as a result of the recent media exposure, they had received 400 lines of inquiry, and that they were dealing with over 200 persons (including two men) who said that they too were victims of Savile's hidden criminal activities. 








Senior management at the BBC, finally began to confront reality publicly, whilst  the corporation found itself in the tragicomic situation of launching its own internal investigation into the Savile scandal and potential cover-up, whilst being investigated, and condemned, for falsely accusing another public figure of being involved in child sex abuse.

 






However, this was just the tip of an iceberg; for it was then revealed that, in the past, Savile was the object of a string of complaints to the police, and the press, dating back to the late 1950s, but, mysteriously, even though he had been interviewed by officers from six separate police forces in England, he was never held to account.






The last time Jimmy Savile was interviewed by the police was in 2009 (when he was 82) and the transcript of this stomach-churning encounter has recently been released.  




Since his fall from grace, numerous persons (including former BBC colleagues, hospital staff, patients, etc.) all came forward to testify that they knew all about Savile's abusive behaviour, but felt obliged to remain silent. They feared that, due to Savile's iconic status and friends in high places, no one would believe them. Other witnesses testified that their complaints to the management of the BBC about Savile had been trivialised, and/or ignored. 




It is now known that Savile's victims numbered at the very least 450 (the overwhelming majority were girls aged 12-16, the youngest was a boy of 8 and the oldest a woman of 47), and that many more victims probably still remain too ashamed to come forward. Indeed, this former British 'icon/legend' was easily Britain's most-prolific paedo-sexual offender.

Clair McAlpine committed suicide in 1971. 

At least one of Savile's victims, Clair McAlpine (a 15 year old dancer), is known to have committed suicide. According to reliable witness tesimony, Clair left a diary detailing acts of sexual abuse perpetrated against her by Jimmy Savile, and other music industry celebrities, when she worked at the BBC television centre on the headline show, 'Top of the Pops.'  At the time, although Savile and the other persons named in Clair's diary, were interviewed, detectives supposedly investigating Clair's death,  recovered and then buried this key-evidence as 'teenage fantasy.' Consequently, no action was taken against any of the guilty parties by prosecuters or BBC managers, and the abuse was allowed to continue.


  

For a while in 2013, serious suggestions appeared in the media that Jimmy Savile had possibly been indulging in all manner of grotesque sexual perversions including necrophilia. At one time, he had confessed in an interview (in his usual joking banter) that he had free access to all areas of the National Health Service institutions where he worked, and that he enjoyed spending time alone with the dead in hospital mortuaries.







In 1988, Jimmy Savile was appointed by publicity-seeking, Conservative Health Minister, Edwina Currie, to chair a task force to advise on the governing of Broadmoor Hospital, but somehow he ended up in charge of this institution. Again, Savile was given his own free living quarters at Broadmoor, which again he used to sexually-abuse children. Rather than face an interview, 
Edwina Currie issued a cryptic statement about Savile's time in charge of Broadmoor. This left many people (including me) wondering if he had been blackmailing her.

  




With the benefit of hindsight, the world now accepts that Jimmy Savile was so devious, that he hid the terrifying fact that he was a pervert, simply by dressing and acting like a (comic-book version) of a pervert.

Janet Cope worked for Savile for 28 years and claimed to be the only person who really knew him.

Although Savile cannot be described as a cult instigator, he exhibited the diagnostic criteria of a severe and inflexible narcissist. However, there were bedazzled co-narcissists in his entourage who were blind to reality, and who, at first, defended the victim Savile played. Savile's former personal assistant, Janet Cope was sacked after almost 30 years of loyal service. Even then, she initially tried to convince reporters that her former boss's philandering was easily explained by the fact that he was besieged by young women admirers in search of casual sex, but she insisted that all the people who claimed to be Savile's under-age victims were liars and fantasists in search of money. Janet Cope then gave further interviews in which she began to confront the reality that she'd been duped. She also described Savile's violent temper and the level of control he held over people around him.








The police began to arrest other persons, including Savile's former chauffeur, Ray Teret and 1970s 'Glam Rock' star Gary Glitter a.k.a. Paul Gadd, who had participated in his crimes. Even though, Gadd was a known paedo-sexual offender, the acts of abuse he committed with Jimmy Savile remained hidden until 2012. In 1999, Gadd was convicted of possessing child pornography and sent to prison in the UK. In 2006, he was convicted of committing obscene act with children (girls of 10 and 11) in Vietnam and deported to the UK in 2008.

BBC chauffeur David Smth
Former BBC chauffeur, David Smith


A former BBC chauffeur, David Smith, who was also arrested in connection with the Jimmy Savile inquiry, and who was facing charges of abusing a 12 year old boy, committed suicide in October 2013.



Amazingly, all anyone needed to do to discover the truth, was read Savile's autobiography, 'As it Happens,' published in 1974. In this, he openly boasted and joked about having unlawful sex with a pretty, under-age girl who had run away from a remand home, and of being above the law.


This means, that countless persons, including Savile's publishers, his publishers' lawyers, indeed, anyone who read his autobiography of 1974, were party to the signed confession of a dangerous criminal, but they simply ignored it.





Initially, certain members of Savile's family issued statements in which they condemned the press for attacking a dead man and for damaging the charitable trust which bore his name. All the same, other members of Savile's family had his recently-installed tombstone immediately removed and destroyed. This had born the ambiguous and inflammatory epitaph:

'It Was Good While It Lasted'

    The Joseph Smorh/Sidney Rigdon/Oliver Cowdrey/Brigham Young iteration of this same story/phenomenon is more than 150 years old. Like Savile, the ethically challenged conman Joseph Smith was a master of a showmanship and coercive control and had a particular interest in preying on women, many much younger than himself, for sex. Despite the now obvious fraud, the mormon organization all these years later is now hopelessly entrenched in the United States, with generations of followers still believing in Smith's fraudulent stories of golden plates, fabricated "ancient" manuscripts, made -up ancient cultures and a thousand other absurd and patently obvious lies. It's flippin' amazing. The modern day operation still uses cult tactics to recruit and retain members, with of course, no financial transparency and tax free status. It's truly evil genius, when you go in depth to look at it, the way the system works to keep members in and paying their tithe, and ultimately to perpetuate the organization above all else. It goes beyond the way normal-world religions operate. It's a sick machine. Quite discouraging to note how long these twisted schemes can survive with millions of member-victims. It blew me away that one of them was the presidential candidate for the Republican Party the last go round. Crazy. I scratch my head in wonder. Do most of my fellow humans live in a dream?

    1. Thanks Judy and welcome - As you thought, I am quite familiar with the tragicomic origins of the tragicomic 'Mormon' fairy story.

      Although I have recently written about 'MLM income opportunity' rackets which are run by billionaire 'Mormons' and which have been passing large quantities of stolen cash to the billionaire bosses of the 'Mormon' organization, I first encountered 'Mormon missionaries' (i.e. defacto slave recruiters) in the N. of England when I was still at school.

      My father, who was an architect (and a complete skeptic where 'religion' was concerned), was invited to visit the construction site of a new 'Mormon Church.' This impressive building was less than half mile from my family's home and, for several years, I had to walk past it twice a day, on my way to and from school.

      By a strange coincidence, during the same period, my mother, who was antiquarian bookseller, bought a collection of 19th American books including works by the humorist, Charles Farrar Browne a.k.a. Artimus Ward.

      My mother fell about laughing when she read 'Artimus Ward Among the Mormons.'

      Farrar Browne had apparently fallen ill whilst visiting Utah in the 1860s, and whilst recovering, he met many 'Mormons' including Brigham Young.

      Farrar Browne then used his weird 'Mormon' experiences to create a sort of early stand-up comedy routine. Sadly, the humorist died when he was only 33, but he is credited with being a major influence on 'Mark Twain.'

      In many respects, one of the main factors which protects all these cults, is their absurdity. The average observer prefers to believe that nothing so ridiculous could possibly be dangerous.

      Please feel free to send me your contact details in a comment (these will not be published)

    1. Anonymous - I think you will find that it is more accurate to say that cult instigators control their followers - imposing an inflexible model of reality on them, whilst giving them the illusion that they are making free-choices.

      Thus, if you meet cult recruiters (and make the mistake of engaging with them), they systematically attempt to impose their controlled-model of reality on you, but they will emphatically deny that they are controlled themselves.

  3. ACN is one for the current MLM that really scam people out of their time and money. The cult aspect also prevails.

    1. Thanks Georges - Sadly, there are literally hundreds of 'MLM income opportunity' cultic rackets that have been allowed to exist without any real challenge. I hold information about 'ACN,' but I've never been contacted by any victims. This is probably only because I've never posted an article about it.

    2. Georges - I have also clicked on your 'ACN Scam' link and read the text which, although generally critical of 'ACN,' is also inaccurate, ambiguous and potentially dangerous, because it implies that so-called 'MLM' is a legitimate form of business.

      Normally I wouldn't allow such a link to be posted on my Blog, but in this case, I will make an exception.

      It is far more accurate to say that 'ACN' is only one part of an ongoing criminogenic phenomenon of historic significance. More than half a century of quantifiable evidence, proves beyond all reasonable doubt that what has become popularly known as 'Network,' or 'Multi-Level, Marketing' is nothing more than an absurd, cultic, economic pseudo-science, and that the impressive-sounding made-up term 'MLM,' is, therefore, part of an extensive, thought-stopping, non-traditional jargon which has been developed, and constantly-repeated, by the instigators, and associates, of various, copy-cat, major, and minor, ongoing organized crime groups (hiding behind labyrinths of legally-registered corporate structures) to shut-down the critical, and evaluative, faculties of victims, and of casual observers, in order to perpetrate, and dissimulate, a series of blame-the-victim closed-market swindles or pyramid scams (dressed up as 'legitimate direct selling income opportunites'), and related advance-fee frauds (dressed up as 'legitimate training and motivation, self-betterment, programs, leads,' etc.).
