A comment from a reader about the picture below brought it all home.
“Good Lord. What happened to these women? They look stunned and empty. The blond one looks like a ghost. The rest don’t seem to be present. Sad.”
It is not their smiles that are so frightening. It is the look in their eyes.
It is common for “branded-by-Raniere” women to offer a large smile in front of the camera.
For some women, I understand, ESP is their only source of income.
Keith Raniere said, “When we smile, the world smiles with us; each experience of joy for all people and a victory for humankind.”
The intimidation techniques used by Keith Raniere trains women to be afraid of him.
It’s a great tool.
