thanks for this. enough with the comments about how “they’re not really victims” because “they chose this.” you can’t “choose” if you’re lured in and trapped by false claims, coercion, brainwashing and blackmail.

I am not sure I should be happy to get a 10/10 on that, but I surprised myself.

NXIVM new slogan – Where the trafficked become traffickers.

And there you have it in the quiz. Even though the DOSslaves may say they agreed to join and it is all consensual,they are still victims of human trafficking.

I had a close family member join a cult about five years ago. She agreed to join of her own free will. The cult was international with the leader living in another country, but originating from a third country. He victimized her by getting her to travel to his home country and tour the area where he grew up, and then come to the country where he was living with most of the other cult members.

While her case did not reach the level of trafficking as there was no financial or sexual exploitation at that point. It was the natural next step and it did happen to some of the other cult members who were in the cult longer and spent more time around the leader.

Trafficking is essentially mind control of other humans for the purposes of exploitation. It’s hard for some people to understand it, but once it happens in your life its easy to see how insidious it is, how easily it can happen, and how common it could be. My belief is that trafficking is a societal ill that is still way under the radar of the average person and only gets reported a small fraction of the time. It goes far beyond pimps and prostitutes.

Wow! Really good article and quiz. Explains how insidious human trafficking can be. These cowards prey on some of the most defenseless people in our country.

Part of NXSCUM goal was to create a secret economy to avoid income and sales taxes. The slaves fit into this, bc they were an unpaid labor force.

Many similarities btw NXSCUM and organized crime on East Coast – Mafia.

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.
