He has very specific instructions for his members on how they are to treat new members. The instructions are designed to avoid communicating the true nature of FDR. Molyneux warns the members that he often arrives as a new visitor to test their behavior. He assures them that any deviation from his requirements will cause them to be banished from the group. &quot;<br /><br />can you provide more info on this? citation of source material etc.jobyhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05968167351084561659noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-65767855999006754422013-09-11T15:42:42.177-04:002013-09-11T15:42:42.177-04:00Errrmagerd, stef is the worst.

We have not heard from him since then, though we are aware he is an active member of this group/cult and contributor; he is also a firm believer that both of our parents abused him.

Molyneux rejected out of hand the entire concept of sociopathy as a specific congenital lack of empathy. He insisted on defining sociopathy within the spectrum of neurosis (i.e. people born with empathy but who are damaged by environment ), when, in fact, sociopathy exists outside that spectrum. It&#39;s easy to see why the idea threatens him. If there is a significant segment of the population who are driven to seek power over others and whose personalities are NOT the result of parental abuse then his entire psychological/political scenario collapses.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-27845943795717387892012-05-29T13:25:58.989-04:002012-05-29T13:25:58.989-04:00Edmund, I am happy to report that after almost 4ye...Edmund, I am happy to report that after almost 4years my daughter has resumed contact with family and friends.

Very glad to hear that. A bonus that you see the arrogance and ego. Why is he wrong about parents not being good? That hurts :) In a nut shell. Moly holds that all forms of discipline are damaging to a child. He then goes the next step (like all with Narcissistic Personality Disorder), and can&#39;t just say he dissagrees with traditional parenting methods. NPD sufferers have to go the extra nine yards. Anyone who dissagrees has to have evil intent. They themselves must be evil (splitting). <br />A young adult who has an issue with an over bearing parent would normally balance that with other things. &quot;They did after all, love me, raise me, spend time with me, help me with my homework, come to my events, occasionally played along and believed my impossibly transparant lies rather than embarrass me, etc.&quot; <br />In other words, a young adult might cut dad a break and realize he was human. Such subtley does not work for Moly. He insists the parents who demand good behavior, or maximum effort, or any other virtue are tyrants, jailers, the embodiment of depravity and corruption, etc. And if ever a parent who loses their temper...well...he is pure satan from hell. In case it needs to be said. All parents occasionally lose their temper. If a young adult accepts the new enlightened Moly view of things, well it only makes sense to break. Naturally people want to end &#39;unhealthy&#39; relationships. <br />Of course the parent is in the catch 22. Discipline is a moral imperative for the parent. And there you have it. The parent loves the child. And out of that love, they endure their own pain as they do the hard work of teaching their children the realities of life and what it takes to succeed and be happy. In the world of FDR, all those hard things like punishments, harsh words and the like that normal parents to do help their children grow are prima facie examples of the parents petty hatred of their children. I think that may answer your question.Edmund Burkehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14382918660870366357noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-84833512008356882882012-01-25T13:32:00.969-05:002012-01-25T13:32:00.969-05:00So..

You repeatedly state what he says, but you never actually give reasons for why he&#39;s wrong. <br /><br />Don&#39;t get me wrong, I&#39;m not abandoning my family, and I&#39;m fully aware of his enormous arrogance &amp; ego, but I just don&#39;t see where the criticism is justified, IE, where your reasons for disagreeing with his point are.Kremnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-34474676139246516622011-10-24T15:55:54.600-04:002011-10-24T15:55:54.600-04:00Molyneux was not an &quot;acolyte&quot; of Ayn Ran...Molyneux was not an &quot;acolyte&quot; of Ayn Rand&#39;s and his philosophy is not consistent with her own. In addition, she never advocated cutting off families as anyone who knows the history of her and her friends can tell you. I know many people who were closely associated with Rand and they would be horrified by what this con man is doing.<br /><br />I am friends with the Brandens and can assure you that there would be much in Molyneux&#39;s &quot;philosophy&quot; that they would find disgusting. I have seen him in operation and he does advocate that his &quot;followers&quot; cut off their families and friends, if they don&#39;t accept his teachings.clshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/10219748186549203136noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-63520058601551318482011-09-30T15:32:55.772-04:002011-09-30T15:32:55.772-04:00to daddyfumanchu:You comment: &quot;i have only h...to daddyfumanchu:You comment: &quot;i have only heard the term defoo-ed on this site&quot; Well, you took the time to visit this site.

Moly&#39;s view of abuse is so broad and so inclusive as to cause most (maybe ALL) families qualify as corrupt and/or abusive. I am of the belief that he is more interested in a likley donor than a corrupt family. In other words: If he discovers a qualified prospect for a defoo and thus a permenant donor, he will interview that prospect until he finds the abuse needed to prove out that the prospect had an abusive relationship.Edmund Burkehttp://www.blogger.com/profile/14382918660870366357noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-88809086909301187512011-01-31T16:48:10.555-05:002011-01-31T16:48:10.555-05:00Most people would say my mother was a nice person,...Most people would say my mother was a nice person, but parents don&#39;t tend to abuse children in front of everyone.

You have the choice to leave the ones that don&#39;t make you happy.<br />Please explain what is wrong with leaving abusive relationships, regardless of who they are?<br />Or do you feel the word &quot;abuse&quot; is not well defined?Melissanoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-44900083674675980362010-09-03T16:43:22.023-04:002010-09-03T16:43:22.023-04:00Jeez. you knew Moly&#39;s mother?

She was a likeable person. I have seen glimpses of her temper on one occasion, however, so there&#39;s no doubt that what Moly says about her could be true. Moly himself was a jovial, comical soul when he was young. He seems a bit of a spider, now. I agree with his theory that family unites are a source of poison and should be abandoned altogether. Who says we owe it to our families to include them in our lives? If I never saw my parents and siblings again, I would be at peace FINALLY.
