re: #41 pittee

YOU are the one spreading a “deluge” of BS, and your additional comments and justification for doing so, reveal your lopsided agenda.

See, you may not realize it, but hyperoblic stuff like this doesn’t do you any good, it just makes you look nutty. I’m from San Francisco, and Cafe Gratitude put out a statement that they had to close their stores because of these lawsuits. I misremembered it as being all, when it was ‘just’ their Northern California stores. How is that a ‘deluge of BS’? What ‘justification’ have I made?

OK I get it, you are so right, and myself and Landmark and anyone who does not see things YOUR way on this topic, just so, are clearly 100% wrong. Hopefully one day soon the Landmark evil doers will disappear from the face of the earth and you will have your victory and we can all live in the wonderful magical “cult”-free, brainwash-free world that you envision and are arguing for. Thank-you for fighting the good fight (on the internet.)

Again, this kind of weird hyperbole means I don’t really have to off an argument, because it’s clear that it’s completely silly. What I’ve said is that things that can be scientifically shown to work are cool with me— of course, there’s a whole discussion about labor ethics once you start forcing your employees to do something belief-based.

But anyway, I haven’t even used the word ‘brainwash’, because I don’t think that cults brainwash people. Cults are a pretty misunderstood thing, and there’s plenty of people in cults who are good people and trying to do good. Accusing me of wanting them to vanish is hysterical.
