If I had a really thick skin, I never would have written the first book. I knew what I was into.
But I didn’t care. Because I knew that if I did, I would never make my points in a public forum. After all, if you read AMORC UNMASKED carefully, you will see how powerful and whole the members really feel. Many believe they are ultimately at the very core of influencing world leaders and the direction of world piece. I am just a little fly in the ointment.
In looking at the criticisms in Amazon, it was quite interesting… Continue reading
Pierre S. Freeman-review- Freedom of Mind: Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults, and Beliefs (Paperback)
An Extraordinary New Resource By Steven Hassan, April 9, 2014
-A Review of Pierre S. Freeman-
This book is, in a way, an updated version of “Releasing the Bonds,” which I have also reviewed. It presents a new protocol, the Strategic Interactive Approach (SIA), for assisting those who wish to help their loved ones gain understanding and potentially an exit strategy from the people, groups and beliefs, which have enslaved them. It is developed in response to the BITE model of a dangerous cult (B= Behavioral Control, I=Information Control, T=Thought Control and E=Emotional Control). In the cult which I… Continue reading
As you may have heard, I, Pierre S. Freeman, the author of The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked have taken grave exception to the practices and agenda of your organization, Ancient Mystical Order Of Rosæ Crucis, known to the world as AMORC. For this reason, I extend to you the opportunity to answer personally some of the questions that have troubled me and to defend your organization from the charges I have seen fit to… Continue reading
Pierre Freeman Write on the book of Seven Hassan published in 2013-Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults And Beliefs-The Failure of Deprogramming
A new book by Steven Hassan as discussed by Pierre S. Freeman
In many ways, Steven Hassan has been one of my strongest influences and a new book by him (even though it is a somewhat revised edition of “Releasing the Bonds”) is a breath of fresh air. It shows you how far the anti-cult movement has progressed in its methodologies. Here I am referring to the methodologies of interactions and interventions rather than the kind of self-liberation… Continue reading
Ritual – Set up for Mind Control-First Temple Degree Intitiation Part I- with Commentaryy by Pierre S. Freeman
Covert mind control is not just a slap-dash process. A person doesn’t just read a book or say a prayer or chant something and suddenly slip into an enhanced state of suggestibility that eventually completely changes his personality and make him a compliant slave of his cult superiors. No, mind control with this aim is a rather complex process- but the use of ritual can be a very critical component in the process of conversion of a normal person… Continue reading
Helping Loved Ones Leave Controlling People, Cults And Beliefs-A new book by Steven Hassan as discussed by Pierre S. Freeman
The Failure Of Deprogramming
In many ways, Steven Hassan has been one of my strongest influences and a new book by him (even though it is a somewhat revised edition of “Releasing the Bonds”) is a breath of fresh air. It shows you how far the anti-cult movement has progressed in its methodologies. Here I am referring to the methodologies of interactions and interventions rather than the kind of self-liberation and self-analysis that composed the majority of my effort to escape AMORC and its relentless undermining of my authentic self.
I availed myself of counseling a few times. This was… Continue reading
I think Mind Control starts at the very beginning of AMORC’s monograph program.
Despite all the disclaimers about members’ having freedom, you are clearly told- in the beginning and with progressive elaboration and depth- that you are a member of the only real spiritual fraternity in the world, the only one with the authentic emblem of Rosicrucianism, the only one that has inherited the true mantle.
Members who take this lightly and don’t practice the exercises or read the monographs- who don’t hold themselves up to the flame- to the promise of AMORC- can slide by without any problem.… Continue reading
Do I believe that Pierre S. Freeman is the only one who has suffered these experiences? No.
People who come out of cults suffer a lot of symptoms related to post-hypnotic stress disorder. Here are some that I have experienced: hyperalertness, a growing negative view of the world, guilt, irritability and anger, nightmares (and daymares), flashbacks.
I also experienced some blackouts, very obvious disassociate behavior- like laughing or cursing during my period in the Sanctum, towards the end of involvement; confusion and disorientation; panic and an extreme sense of anxiety, without any obvious cause.
I would be quite interested in… Continue reading
This is a slightly different version the list I published in Prisoner- I call this “Sixteen Steps to Mind Control Slavery.” It is quickly meant to explain why AMORC is a Mind Control Platform.
STEP 1 MAKE THEM HUNGRY, GAIN THEIR TRUST
Offer tremendous power and potential from the teachings, but stress how it will in no sense affect their freedom of mind.
STEP 2 CREATE HOLY TEXTS – A WRITTEN AUTHORITY
Give them something to read, memorize and believe in. Provide them with monographs and make them read them over and over.
STEP 3 DEVELOP AN EXALTED LEADERSHIP –… Continue reading
In The Prisoner of San Jose, I unveiled the methodology by which AMORC was able to create heightened states of hypnotic trance by a program that mainly relied on weekly lessons, delivered by mail to its members and weekly Lodge Convocation. In AMORC UNMASKED, I discussed more precisely how these hypnotic means were affected through a progressive platform of hypnotic suggestion. I published these sixteen steps in Prisoner.
Since many of my critics constantly comment, usually without any explanation, that AMORC is not a cult, I would like to review these 16 steps, somewhat modified and enhanced by my experience… Continue reading
