'Xoçai' - Fox News' Bill O'Reilly promoted an 'MLM Income Opportunity' racket.

‘Narcissistic Personality Disorder,’ is a psychological term first used in 1971 by Dr. Heinz Kohut (1913-1981). It was recognised as the name for a form of pathological narcissism in ‘The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 1980.’ Narcissistic traits (where a person talks highly of himself/herself to eliminate feelings of worthlessness) are common in, and considered ‘normal’ to, human psychological development. When these traits become accentuated by a failure of the social environment and persist into adulthood, they can intensify to the level of a severe mental disorder. Severe and inflexible NPD is thought to effect less than 1% of the general adult population. It occurs more frequently in men than women. In simple terms, NPD is reality-denying, total self-worship born of its sufferers’ unconscious belief that they are flawed in a way that makes them fundamentally unacceptable to others. In order to shield themselves from the intolerable rejection and isolation which they unconsciously believe would follow if others recognised their defective nature, NPD sufferers go to almost any lengths to control others’ view of, and behaviour towards, them. NPD sufferers often choose partners, and raise children, who exhibit ‘co-narcissism’ (a co-dependent personality disorder like co-alcoholism). Co-narcissists organize themselves around the needs of others (to whom they feel responsible), they accept blame easily, are eager to please, defer to others’ opinions and fear being seen as selfish if they act assertively. NPD was observed, and apparently well-understood, in ancient times. Self-evidently, the term, ‘narcissism,’ comes from the allegorical myth of Narcissus, the beautiful Greek youth who falls in love with his own reflection.

Currently, NPD has nine recognised diagnostic criteria (five of which are required for a diagnosis):
  •       has a grandiose sense of self-importance.
  •       is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, ideal love, etc.
  •       believes that he/she is special and unique and can only be understood by other special people.
  •       requires excessive admiration.
  •       strong sense of self-entitlement.
  •       takes advantage of others to achieve his/her own ends.
  •       lacks empathy.
  •       is often envious or believes that others are envious of him/her.
  •       arrogant disposition.
William James 'Bill' O'Reilly (b. 1949)

Although he appears to be a comic-book character, Bill O'Reilly (Anchor of Fox News) really is a bombastic right-wing American television celebrity who, for decades, has pretended moral and intellectual authority by posing as a wise 'conservative Christian political commentator' - the fearless, honest champion of ordinary God-fearing American people and of the American way - selflessly-struggling to re-establish the truth and, thus, protect the US Constitution, in the face of a Godless Fifth-Column of left-wing liars, and propagandists, who are out to destroy the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

Meanwhile, back in the adult world of quantifiable reality, Bill O'Reilly is notorious for bullying his guests, his subordinates or, indeed, anyone else who dares to challenge his deeply-self-righteous model of reality. One doesn't need to be medically-qualified to recognize that Bill O'Reilly has exhibited several of the diagnostic criteria of Severe and Inflexible Narcissistic Personality Disorder. 

Bear in mind, in the above videos, this is what Bill Reilly can be like at work, and when he knows that millions of people are watching him - so imagine what he might be like in private.

Bill O'Reilly is currently being widely-ridiculed after finally getting caught spinning a web of outrageous ego-inflating lies about himself. Classically, Bill O'Reilly's narcissistic fantasies have been ambiguously-worded and do contain some elements of the truth.

Recently, I was contacted by a couple of American journalists wanting my opinion of a so-called 'MLM Income Opportunity' called 'Xoçai.' The reason for their interest was that  'Xoçai' has been promoted on Fox News by none other than world-class liar, Bill O'Reilly. 

Three years ago, Bill O'Reilly steadfastly pretended to be drinking 'Xoçai' every day of his life.

Let's be perfectly clear about this, 'Xoçai' is yet another 'Amway' copy-cat blame-the-victim 'Income Opportunity/ Prosperity Gospel' cultic racket; which means that Bill O'Reilly has got lots more explaining to do here.

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,' etc.).
