Another good news story of a Defoo ended

This is email I received recently.  The mailer was glad to have her story posted.  Specifics of identity edited out.  

Hello Edmund,
I posted on your website and sent you an email almost 5 years ago when our son defooed. Like other parents I was looking for answers and hope. Well now my son is back!!

His wife (then girlfriend) who majored in English and philosophy and very smart started pointing out discrepancies in Moly's views and noticed that Moly had a tendency to put women down. Once my son really started hearing what she was hearing they both dropped Stefan.  

She is now pregnant with our first grand child (a boy). We helped them buy a house in the area which they will be moving into in the next couple of weeks.

We don't talk about Stefan or FDR. When we first reconnected our son simply said he needed time and space to figure out who he was. An FDR friend of their's passed through town a couple of months ago and made some comment about an FDR podcast that he liked. Our son's wife made a very disparaging remark about Stefan which shut the friend's mouth very quickly.

Our son and his wife still have some views that are much more extreme than ours but my son is back and he's the person I remembered from before FDR. There were times when I never thought I'd see him again...

Thanks for being a source of knowledge and a forum for parents like me to ask questions and get answers, or at least insights, and know we are not alone


  1. It's been a year since our son has detached from our family. Seems like a lifetime especially after losing our daughter by a drunk driver. It is good to hear about a positive outcome!!

  2. Thank you so much. My son defood our family almost a year ago and it has broken our hearts. I still hope and pray that he will see the negativity of Stefan and return to the sweet loving son he once was.

  3. Nice, and it sounds like they are still libertarians ^_^

  4. Our son just defoo'd us. We had a happy, loving family before he came across Stefan. I had no idea that Stefan was a dangerous cult leader.

    We are desperate to get him back. We need help and really need contact with other victims including family members and former victims. How do we get that going?

  5. What the heck is with this guy pulling apart families like this? I have sympathy for those who come from dysfunctional families, don't get me wrong, but when someone like Stefan projects his dysfunction onto other people and forces them to break their ties with their own families, my sympathy is rescinded. He uses his own bad experiences to influence young, impressionable minds, and ruins their, and therefore their families', lives, and that's just sinister. Surely some sort of karma should come back and teach Stefan well and good. The world is corrupt enough as it is without dingbats like Stefan adding fuel to the fire.

  6. I watched his little videos because he was such a hater. I see how people can be drawn in. But I didn't know there was such a large amount of people deefooing there family.
