To fight for the right, without question or pause …
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause …
And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
when I’m laid to my rest …
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach … the unreachable star …
Keith Raniere may not have realized it, but Frank Parlato is a man like Don Quixote. Ceaseless in his attempts. Specifically, his great quest to find the “One Thousand Millionaires” that Raniere built… no matter the cost.
But we, the audience… know it is an impossible dream. For he will never find them. They are like ghostly vapors. Tainted with particles of bullshit.
And yet Parlato continues to seek… the impossible dream.
On a less satirical note, the reason Keith Raniere uses this story to motivate, is to have the mindless drones continue towards impossible tasks that will never bear fruit and prevent them from living their lives. He uses this metaphor to have them slave away, despite the futility. They are stuck in a prison of his devising…. a prison of their own goodness.
It is the worst-intended kind of hypnosis… using the pull inside every human of a quixotic quest for their own greatness.
Instead, he uses their noble quest for his own aims. Feeding, Fucking, Fleeing from Responsibilities and Fighting with those who leave him.
Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind.
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 helping 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 featured prominently on HBO’s docuseries “The Vow” and acted as lead investigator and coordinating producer for Investigation Discovery’s “The Lost Women of NXIVM.” He was credited in the Starz docuseries 'Seduced' for saving 'slave' women from being branded and escaping the sex-slave cult known as DOS.
Parlato appeared on the Nancy Grace Show, Gretchen Carlson Show, Dr. Oz and NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, where Parlato scored the first ever interview with Keith Raniere after his arrest, which many credit Parlato with engineering. He will be featured in an upcoming episode of American Greed.
