MLM is Similar to Antifa

Today's blog post is about a recent group of anarchists, Antifa ("Anti-Fascists") and how they share the same amount of hatred as MLMers for anyone that does not share their same stream of consciousness. The amount of vitriol MLMers spew online when someone opposes their business, is the same virulent response Antifa has for people attempting to speak about something they do not support. Antifa, much like MLMers, do not like the idea of free speech, because it is damaging to their mind-numbing cultic belief systems.

Fascism: a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
Antifa espouses a bitter hatred for the "right" (conservatism) and are well known for their riots on college campuses. The most prolific riot was on the UC Berkeley campus (Cal) as Milo Yiannopoulos, a self proclaimed "provacateur", was forced to cancel his speaking engagement because of an anti-right riot. This later turned into a hot bed for a new extremist group called "Antifa" to cause more riots against the "Right" in Berkeley, which includes a recent riot against the "Patriots rally" on April 15th 2017 . Since the Cal riot it has become extremely unsafe to hold a position other than extreme "leftism" in this area, and this sentiment has spread to other liberal areas as well.

Antifa wants to disenfranchise anyone that has a different platform or has a different set of thoughts from their own. They want to censor people's rights to speak publicly with others about controversial subjects and wedge issues that are not supporting their position. They fear the spoken word of anyone that challenges their narrative, and they respond to that fear with the highest degree of anger and violence. This group hates the idea of free speech and wants everyone to have groupthink. They have created new terms such as "Hate Speech" and "Islamophobia" to create a limit on people's ability to talk about terrorism. Antifa is aggressively destroying a basic foundation of America that was created to combat the limitations imposed by the U.K.

MLMers also hate free speech and regularly combat the internet bloggers and their research. They have the same hypocritical nature about not speaking "Negatively", except for when it suits their needs. They utilize powerful psychological techniques to impose their narrative on unsuspecting consumers and gradually turn them into groupthinkers. They work diligently to eliminate any presence of a differing opinion and will go as far as to recommend shutting our everything else. They do not want MLM downlines to use the internet for news and research, they do not want MLM downlines to have relationships outside of members in the MLM, they do not want MLM downlines to have relationships with family members that oppose MLM, and they do not MLM downlines to have distractions, such as jobs, activities, or friends, outside of the MLM. They will create a new narrative based on one sole purpose, to recruit, but they will tell their downline their main objective is to help them get rich and live the "Good Life" (Tai Lopez). MLMers have a history of violence as well, because the divide they create between themselves and the rest of the world becomes very intense. After an MLM downline has been molded into a perfect member, they may resort to violence as the people who oppose their views become less and less tolerable. There are stories of MLMers acting out violently at home with their spouses and children from other blogs, because the people at home didn't fit the narrative.

MLM, as a whole, is just as cult-like and evil as Antifa. They have ruined millions of people's lives and bank accounts for greed. They don't care who they hurt or how badly they hurt them, and once they are done extracting what they can from a person, they will toss that person to the curb and let them fend for themselves. They are not a support system, they are not a group of "Free Thinkers", they are not introducing you to the best opportunity life has to offer, they are not introducing you to the "Business of the 21st Century", but rather introducing you to a mob, a cult of personality, a "Criminogenic Syndicate" (Brear).

  1. I agree, they are very similar. It always seems to me that people who favor censorship do so because they are unable to defend their beliefs on an even playing field. Free speech and criticism is very corrosive to their beliefs because they are inherently illogical, lacking evidence, and/or just totally defy common sense. Hence, they need the bubble of censorship to protect them from criticism. I dare say that MLMs are inherently totalitarian due to the control these things have over members lives.

      Thank you for your comment! I love the fact that you use the term "bubble" to describe the world they live in and the censorship they want to have. A bubble is perfect because it can only last for a finite amount of time and as it expands it gets weaker and weaker. These pro-censorship people never seem to understand that taking away a person's right to information can't last forever and usually ends with a complete severance from the thing providing the censorship.

      The idea that they are "protecting" people from the "negativity" or "evil" of the outside perspective is a thin excuse for promoting brainwashing. There will be some hardcore adherents that won't separate from the cause because their cognitive dissonance won't allow it, but most eventually see through it and make a major change to leave the organization.

      I believe we are seeing this now with current events in the U.S. as people continue to escape the "Democratic" party. These "Neoliberals" promoting war, censorship, and gun control are becoming less popular because people, in general, want to make these decisions for themselves, and don't need some group to tell them what they can and can't do. The "democrats" are imploding the same way MLMs do once people stop buying into the rhetoric and lies.

    Both major parties are in turmoil, but the infighting among the Democrats after this latest congressional election defeat, on top of losing the presidential election, may tear the party to shreds. They were already eating each other alive before this latest thrashing, especially on college campuses, but it seems the far left is now seeking nothing less than the annihilation of the more moderate leftists. I've never seen anything like this before. The Democratic party is sinking like the Titanic and they're too busy fighting each other to save themselves. It seems only a few moderates are heading for the lifeboats.

    So many bubbles to burst, so little time.

      I believe the self-cannibalization of the democratic party was imminent once the party platform changed from promoting more individual freedoms to promoting group division through aggressive condemnation of non-radical adherence. As the demands for conformity, adherence, and anger against the "other" grew, the less the group could hold its cohesion as more and more people would fail to meet the qualifications of a perfect member.

      I don't believe this is as uncommon as you may think. As groups begin to form and create an identity they start relatively amorphous. However, once a group begins to solidify and generate a real sense of self, then they will also better define the ideas and people they wish to keep away.

      I believe this happens in MLM all the time. I witnessed it when I was propositioned for WWDB in Amway. They tried to create new rules for my personal life and wanted me to leave my fiance at the time (now wife), because I needed to find a more "ideal" person to grow the business with. Instead of forming a larger group by trying to work with both of us, they immediately went to potentially forcing me out because I wasn't going to fit every rule and potentially have a wife outside of the business.

  3. The Antifa scum are extremely vicious and violent, very much like the Nazi thugs in the 1920s and 30s who would beat up those who disagreed with them. The fact that Antifa types always wear ski masks and other covers for their faces shows that they are gutless cowards.

      They are a modern day domestic terrorist group. The Bill of Rights is under constant threat from the government, but it would seem we have "Citizens" that also do not like the Constitution and everything this country was founded upon.

    2. Gentlemen - It was Adolf Hitler who observed that:

      'The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.'

      However, as ever Hitler's statement is simplistic and misleading; for it would be far more accurate to say that when faced with totalitarian regimes run by closed-logic fictitious narratives that prohibit thinking, the tendency has been for many of their opponents to stop thinking out of fear and hatred, when the way to oppose totalitarianism successfully is to think.

      Dr. Alan Mathison Turing is universally recognised as a giant figure in history - a brilliant mathematician, logician, codebreaker, computer scientist and major contributor to the Allies' victory during WWII.

      Following on from work he began in 1941, in 1950, Dr. Turing published a paper, 'Computing Machinery and Intelligence,' in which he discussed the existing philosophical question of whether machines can think. He then proposed a test, in the form of a blind question and answer game, where computers would be used to try to convince humans that they were not engaging with machines, but with other humans. Thus, despite its appearance, the 'Turing Test' is not a high-brow parlour-game or even a scientific experiment to determine whether machines can think, but a rudimentary, logical test of whether an artificial mind can be made to appear to have the same cognitive capacity as the human mind.

      In recent years, various people have suggested ways in which the 'Turing Test' can be reversed, but, as far as I am aware, no one has yet suggested that Dr. Turing's celebrated thoughts on artificial intelligence, can also be applied to the study of the cult/totalitarian phenomenon; for, due to their incapacity to engage with external reality, the inflexible core-adherents of totalistic cults have often been compared to robots. However, the way that exploitative, self-perpetuating ritual belief systems bait, trap and enslave their prey, by reflecting common human instinctual desires (prosperity, health, happiness, freedom, security, etc.) as being obtainable in exchange for absolute subservience, can also be compared to a phenomenon which Dr. Turing did not live to witness - computer viruses. Had Dr. Turing been able to continue his work, he might have eventually felt the need to propose a rudimentary, logical test of whether an artificial mind can be made to appear to have the same ego-related capacity to become delusional as the human mind; for although cult adherents insist that no one is controlling them and that they are excercising free-will, nonetheless, illogically, and without exception, they all see the world in mechanical two-dimensional terms ('negative vs positive', 'us vs them' , 'good vs evil' , 'winners vs losers' , etc. ), communicate in code-like thought-stopping language and obey their de facto programmers without question (no matter what suffering this entails).

    3. David,

      Your post reminded me of the quote from Eleanor Roosevelt,

      “A mature person is one who does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and in all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably with the circumstances of life, knowing that in this world no one is all-knowing and therefore all of us need both love and charity.”

      If a person has to deal entirely in absolutes, then there is no difference between them and a machine. If you are programmed to give a specific output for each individual input, then you are the very product of your programmer.

      It is frustrating, because, as you have stated, "for although cult adherents insist that no one is controlling them and that they are excercising free-will, nonetheless, illogically, and without exception, they all see the world in mechanical two-dimensional terms...". Therefore, people are making the conscious choice, whether they realize the problems or not, to shut down their faculties that make them human. Without the ability to make critical decisions on a case by case basis, we are no different from any programmable machine.

  4. From my point of view antifa and neonazi movement fall very close to Scientology craziness, with nazis being first and antifa right behind them. After them comes MLM lunacy.

      I've tried not to create lists like that anymore because it gives a certain level of acceptance to the "lesser" crimes. I'm not trying to suggest that all crimes are created equally, but when you make comparisons it does inherently make one more severe than another which can lead people to believe it is more acceptable.

      With all of that being said, I believe "Nazis" and "Antifa" are the same breed. They are both violent organizations that have been created by a government funded propaganda engine. Antifa hasn't had the opportunity to commit as much violence as Nazis, but they both fall under the category of domestic terrorist groups.

  5. The purpose of Antifa, as was the case with the Nazis, is to silence all dissent in the public sphere. In other words, according to Antifa you can think whatever you like privately, but you cannot express it publicly in speech, print, or any other medium that reaches out to an audience wider than your close friends or family.

    Like all ideologies, Antifa and Nazism are really religious belief systems that are utterly intolerant of any dissenting viewpoint that doesn't fit in with Received Public Orthodoxy. Antifa's view is that you cannot make any public statement against politically correct opinion without being shouted down, harassed, or (as in Charles Murray's most recent experience) being beaten up and sent to the hospital. This is EXACTLY what Nazi thugs did to non-Nazi Germans who dared to speak out against Hitler.

    The fact that Antifa is widely supported and cheered on by the left-wing scum in academia only shows what a corrupt pit of poison academia has become.

    There's one big difference between Antifa and the Nazis. At least the Nazi SA thugs didn't cover their faces with ski-masks. The vermin in Antifa don't have those kind of guts.

    1. Anonymous,

      I would go so far as to say MLM is worse than Nazis and Antifa according to your first paragraph, because they at least allow you to think freely privately. I do not believe that can exist in MLM as any dissenting opinion, whether it is public or private, is strictly brainwashed out of the downline member. It is an important part of the mind control to stop outside opinions from penetrating into their agenda.

      I'm sorry to hear that antifa is supported by the left, especially after what happened at Evergreen. These people clearly have a dystopian point of view when it comes to these groups and probably think these groups won't do the same to them regardless of their ideologies or support for the terrorist group.

      I don't really understand the masks. They don't do anything to support the "cause" or "point" they are trying to make. I'm even more confused as to why people support terrorism, especially when it is purposely dressing up and looking like terrorism. It is truly odd because you could have these people go and rob a white jeweler and claim it is for reparations or some other nonsense and white people will cheer for them. What is happening?!?!?!

  6. Antifa types wear ski-masks because they know that many people today carry smart phones that have cameras in them. With a ski-mask on, you can beat up people and throw things at them without being photographed and then later arrested by the police. It's exactly why ghetto types wear hoodies when perpetrating street muggings.

      And yet they are celebrated by part of the US population because they are somehow loosely affiliated with the "Liberal" side due to their anti-Trump rhetoric. Unbelievable!
