The judge told Mack, “Basically, avoid contact with anyone you know associated in any way with NXIVM.”
This appears to contradict an earlier commitment she made. Mack made ‘The Vow”, a lifetime vow of obedience to Keith Raniere, the founder of the NXIVM cult. She gave him collateral to ensure that she would never fail to honor the vow of placing him above all others.
Mack accepted freedom by agreeing not to communicate with her master, Raniere.
She is not likely to have consulted with Raniere in making this decision. He is in Brooklyn in prison – having been denied bail.
One former NXIVM slave said, “There is nothing that would make Keith Raniere more upset than losing control of Allison Mack. He is striving for control. He created a master-slave group. In the face of adversity, she was not willing to stand with her group. It will drive Keith insane. He must have complete control of everyone.”
He does not have control. This is evidenced by the fact that she agreed not to talk to him or anyone – even Mack’s wife, DOS slave, actress Nicki Clyne, whom Mack married to keep in the USA. Clyne is Canadian.
One of Mack’s slaves, India Oxenberg, has previously said she’s willing to go to jail like Nelson Mandela to uphold Mack and Raniere, but pampered Oxenberg has not been cuffed and collared like Mack, who just spent four days in the brutal Metropolitan Detention Center n Brooklyn. If she’s charges and arrested, will Oxenberg also seek to get out of jail at the cost of never speaking to anyone connected to NXIVM?
According to a court filing, Mack tolled the time clock for speedy trial because her lawyers may be trying to secure a plea. She won’t be consulting with Raniere on that either. And a good thing too, since any plea deal at this stage would require her to testify against him, her former master.
Mack’s next court date is May 3.
