Edmondson quotes Raniere on joy

Sarah Edmondson quotes Keith Raniere for her thought of the day on her webpage http://www.sarahedmondson.com/my-work/acting/:
 “He who has the most joy wins!” ”  KEITH ; )
That is perfect. And so true.
Raniere is seen having a great deal of joy as he sues ex-lovers and other enemies, attempts to put them in prison, lure them to Mexico, squander scores of millions in losing commodities investments, make blundering real estate deals, commit possible tax evasion, selling knowledge [instead of sharing it as Gandhi, The Dalai Lama and others have done] have hyper confidentiality agreements to prevent others from talking about him, have his companies shut down by authorities, sleep with numerous women – some of them under the age of consent – lying to some about having babies with them; while denying the paternity of his own son; telling some falsely that he is monogamous; while misleading students that he is like a monk, celebrating his birthday for a week – with paid admittance, lying on his bio about accomplishments that never occurred  – and overall winning  by having ‘joy’ mainly by depriving others of joy.
Yes, the use of the word win, implies lose. Raniere is accused of making plenty of people losers, although I can’t help but think, in the end, he will lose, in a spectacular way.
As for Sarah Edmondson, she must actually be a fool.
And that is always a sad thing to behold.
Quoting Gandhi and Aristotle and following Raniere, she must be a joyful simpleton.

About the Author

Frank Parlato is an investigative journalist.

His work has been cited in hundreds of news outlets, like The New York Times, The Daily Mail, VICE News, CBS News, Fox News, New York Post, New York Daily News, Oxygen, Rolling Stone, People Magazine, The Sun, The Times of London, CBS Inside Edition, among many others in all five continents.

His work to expose and take down NXIVM is featured in books like “Captive” by Catherine Oxenberg, “Scarred” by Sarah Edmonson, “The Program” by Toni Natalie, and “NXIVM. La Secta Que Sedujo al Poder en México” by Juan Alberto Vasquez.

Parlato has been prominently featured on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and was the lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” Parlato was also credited in the Starz docuseries "Seduced" for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.

Additionally, Parlato’s coverage of the group OneTaste, starting in 2018, helped spark an FBI investigation, which led to indictments of two of its leaders in 2023.

Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Beyond the Headlines with Gretchen Carlson, Dr. Oz, American Greed, Dateline NBC, and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato conducted the first-ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest. This was ironic, as many credit Parlato as one of the primary architects of his arrest and the cratering of the cult he founded.

Parlato is a consulting producer and appears in TNT's The Heiress and the Sex Cult, which premiered on May 22, 2022. Most recently, he consulted and appeared on Tubi's "Branded and Brainwashed: Inside NXIVM," which aired January, 2023.
