The Knife of Aristotle seems to have deleted its Facebook account.

It seems probable that Raniere-world has taken note of the comments on Frank Report that Facebook is too skilled at social networking, and will always recognize what is linked back to Raniere-world. That has become a liability since Raniere-world is now indelibly linked to blackmail, slavery, and genital branding.

On the non-Facebook web, the Knife of Aristotle is still present as of this writing.  But after on-line Paste Magazine recognized that the Knife was a front for Raniere’s cult ( ), the contributors list page (a who’s who of Raniere-world insiders) was deleted, and only the cognoscenti will recognize insider’s names from the remaining testimonials.
An amusing sidelight:  The Knife of Aristotle is a metaphor about function.  The function of a knife is to cut efficiently.  The knife metaphor is introduced in Book 1 of Aristotle’s “Politics.”  According to

Aristotle says that men and women are disposed such that men are the natural leaders while women are naturally subservient, similar to the relationship between master and slave.  Per his understanding, one must rule and another must be subject, the former belonging to intellect and the master while the body and the slave represent the subservient element.

Additionally, as part of promoting this argument, Aristotle says that things are made by nature so as to be distinct (and presumably complementary).

Therefore, the feminine and the slavish are distinguished (for Nature makes no such thing as the blacksmiths make the Delphic knife, in need of something, but Nature makes one thing for one thing.  For in this way, each tool will turn out most splendidly, not serving many functions but one).

In other words,  the term “Knife of Aristotle” is linked to women naturally having status as slaves.  Raniere leaves these clues around, thinking no one will connect the dots because he’s “the world’s smartest man” and the only one who is smart enough to see these things…

So the Facebook account name was “theknifeofaristotle”

Keith knew the dots would eventually be connected

Keith teaches these coaches and leaders all about himself, yet they haven’t been able to connect the dots.

This is the one other HUGE joy/pleasure he’s been feeling the last 20yrs – NOBODY HAS FIGURED OUT THIS RIDDLE. He IS the shifter, leveler, sociopath, etc. Right under your noses, HE IS the villian in the Ayn Rand books. HE TEACHES YOU HOW TO SPOT IT and you haven’t. He keeps pushing it to see how much he can get away with. EXACTLY like he pushes the whole sex thing – to see what he can get away with.

To him, the fact that nobody has figured it out, helps prove to himself (his desperate need) that he is the smartest guy in the room.

He knows that he’ll eventually be found out and the whole operation will collapse. He’s amazed it’s gone on for so long, and to such lengths. His over/under was 10 yrs. He just underestimated the sales skills of his hypnotized harem.

Please. He was figured out years ago by anyone who used their mind.

Once these cult leaders step into the sexual realm where they are (or trying to) secretly fuck a bunch of their women followers, they literally “expose” themselves as frauds, and he’s been doing it for well over a decade.

If it people find out that it was all a “game” to him, he better watch his back.

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.
