Today I moderated a comment left on this Blog by a person named Isaac. Isaac wrote:
How is being an IBO a cult? First of all, there is a 90 day money back guarantee, so what do you have to lose? Second, your buying items you need (such as face wash, shampoo, body wash, make-up, vitamins, etc.) and getting paid for it. Would you rather get paid for buying those items, or not get paid and support Walmart? Next, you say this is a "swindle" and a "scam". Well why don't you explain that a little bit, because this business is not a "get rich quick" business. There is extrememly high potential for making money in Amway, you just have to get educated, take advice, and put forth some effort (which im assuming you didn't do). Lastly, you were apart of Quixtar, which technically is the same thing, but Amway has newer and better products now. IBO's get them for wholesale price, and so do our customers. Amway does not want people like you, quixtarisacult. They want people that are positive, excited, educated, determined, and willing to take advice.
This is the response that I gave poor Isaac:
Obviously you have joined the cult. Why is Amway/Quixtar like joining a cult? Just read any of my blogs and you will soon discover your answer. I notice that you seem to repeat much of the Amway "tape-speak" that is paraded out for new Ambots.
Maybe you haven't devoted much of your time or money to your new association, so you can probably get out before losing too much of your own time, money and self respect.
Regarding, how do you get paid for buying your own inventory? How do you save money by buying badly overpriced Amway goods when their discounted price to you is generally much higher than nearly all brick and mortar stores retail?
You repeat that Amway is not a get rich quick business. What then is their 5 year plan all about?
Oh yes, Amway wants people to be excited and positive for their scheme. It works for Amway, but will it really work for you?
Want to find out about your wonderful Amway upline? Read "Married to an Ambot." Are you married? If yes, I'm sorry to hear about what your wife most likely will be going through.
Amway Cult Intervention works if you work it.
My friend Isaac is a perfect example of how new recruits begin to talk like their recruiter. They begin to look and sound like everyone else in their insane cult. They repeat the same things--the tapespeak--of their upline cultic leaders. Isaac parrots maybe the biggest lie of them all: that IBOs get paid for buying all the things they need from Amway. Isn't that insanity?
Notice that Isaac also repeats what nearly all Amscam cult members say, that "Amway isn't a get rich quick scheme." (Doesn't this imply that Amway is a get rich scheme after all?) I suppose that the Soviet style '5 year plans' must be considered an exceptionally long time by Ambots, and Amway therefore must not be considered a quick scheme--since it takes upwards of five years to achieve "financial freedom."
Isaac, are you a real person? You have lost your ability to think independently. You have become just another obnoxious Ambot drone? Cults lie, and yes, my dear Isaac, you and hundreds of thousands of others like you in your cult have swallowed the same camel.
No, Isaac, I have never been an Ambot, and no I've never signed up for the Quixtar cult. You don't need to be taken in by these either. Let me know how well you've succeeded after your 5 year plan is up, okay?
