It’s like the college ponzi of teaching people to become teachers, ad nauseum, plus the dudebro hustle cult of status signalling (I don’t need sleep!) and a cult of personality, all in one.
I guess they got the idea from Shillshare, the website with expensive youtube videos by cucky liberals you’ve never heard of, who are apparently famous in their field. E-celeb cancer mostly. Or originally from the rare people (not celebs) who actually have world tier skills and have a course to save time. Those are rare. Can you use it on your CV? If no, not a real course.
Shillshare is literally a pyramid scheme of signing up to encourage other people to sign up.
The finance guys will definitely get sued. Buy high they’ve been teaching, that’s easy to prove in court. Hundreds of videos in evidence. This pushes up the value of their own investment. Do they mention this? No. Greater fool theory is not acumen.
The only thing worse are the cult forums where they’re like a hivemind of negativity claiming to be blackpill. The SJWs do it, as do MRAs (fake MGTOWs, chasing after random women to harass them*). Some other groups like vegans and eco-warriors have similar gaslighting but not personal life-ruining.
“What did you spend your youth doing anon?”
“Bitching on a forum about men/women/vitamin B/the pandas”.
“….Oh. Worth it?”
It’s an excuse to be lazy and narcissistic (ruining the lives of others to soothe their own insecurity). Cluster B men do this.
Look at cult indicators, some forums are getting like that. How DARE you disagree with the charismatic leader! Drink the Kool Aid because you’re not some pussy conformist, are you? We have a monopoly on truth but religion is silly!
Blackpill is temporary pieces of confirmation about who the evil is (NWO), depressing people into sticking around and paying for your shitty courses is 1. mental/emotional abuse and 2. classic con artist.
Men can emotionally abuse other men.
Oddly, the manosphere forbids you from discussing that possibility.
If you really got a better life (rich bachelor or wife/kids, w/e), would they lose money by losing you?
If so, don’t listen to them. It’s a poison apple.
*A 14yo on youtube is not your ex-wife. Verbally abusing other women as a stand-in is classic Cluster B splitting.
