Goes with the territory, as they say....(btw, if you bother to read the immature frenzy of posts about me on the cassiopaea forum, bear in mind this reaction is typical after a family intervention fails to convince a cult member to defect. The intervention that sparked this fox in a henhouse cult crisis was an open meeting during one day wherein the cult member was told from the start that I would leave if he asked me to and that he could end the session and leave at any time. Several family witnesses were present. We talked and exchanged ideas without rancor for a full day, but, once the member revealed to LKJ who I was, the proverbial shit in a cult leader's mind splattered into conspiracy mode. The cult member refused to meet with me again. My prior reputation as a deprogrammer that did work on some alleged kidnap cases prior to 1992 is what is creating the phony panic among Jadczyk's cult members at this time. Cult leaders will manufacture or fan a crisis to insert phobias in devotees--the better to manipulate them for personal gain.)
You can have whatever opinion you like about Joe Szimhart, but I would encourage you not to made a decision about who he is and what he does based on what cults say about him. Of course they would not like him very much.
I don't know a lot about cult "deprogramming". I'm not an exit counselor and I have never been in a cult let alone exited one. I do know that older methods of deprogramming, such as kidnapping interventions, were once considered a legitimate way to try and get a loved one out of a cult. Now, they are not. They are not done anymore. Szimhart himself has said this. Nobody is going to go to EWCP and kidnap members, tie them down and force them to listen to "deprogramming" talk.
They can do what they like. From my understanding of the blog, the goal is not to force people to leave. It is to let outsiders know what their experiences were, so that anyone who chooses to get involved knows that there are bad stories out there. That in itself is pretty good inoculation against recruitment and mind control. You cannot manipulate someone who suspects the group may have an agenda to manipulate them. If they are able to prove Wang is a fraud, and I believe he is, then more power to them. If they are not, they are still telling their stories.
What are they supposed to do, not tell their truths because some people might be upset about it?
