Transcripts of Recordings
of AMO Activity
This section exists for the purpose of providing
the reader with material that supports the contentions I have made here.
The material is transcripts from Amvox message recordings, a recording of
an AMO organizational open, a recording of an emerald distributor's "strategy"
meeting and more. The ideas contained in this material are repeated endlessly
in the ongoing "business building" activities of distributors
working in the AMO environment. This endless repetition of strategic notions
results in the AMO owning and controlling the minds, emotions and spirits
of the individual. For those distributors staying in the system long enough
this means the virtual suppression of their capacity for independent thought
and the morphing of them from individuals into clones who believe if they
do exactly what they're told (be a core person) they will attain personal
and financial freedom. When a clone is created there is the simultaneous
creation of the "motivation addict" who will do anything to get
the funds for the next function or the next few months of motivational tapes.
A Warning and Disclaimer
It is possible you may be unexpectedly lured
into an Amway Motivational Organization as an effect of reading the following
section. I cannot be responsible for the results of any such developments,
either good or bad. Please be aware that in the following links you will
be stepping into AMO territory. Hopefully, when you are finished you will
be "AMO wise" and not seduced by the hype and imagery.
The Great Personal-use
Caper: "The Major Function Checklist"
A great plan to get people to
buy from their own business which, of course, increases upline's PV without
them having to sell a thing but an idea. Plans like these are all part of
the pervasive emphasis on recruiting rather than selling.

bring with you to the function)
An Organizational Plan Showing:
This is an entire Amway plan showing to several hundred distributors and
their prospects. Pay particular attention as to the different ways the Amway
name is veiled and at what point the Amway named is finally revealed to
Dr. Dave's Organizational Plan Showing
at The Day's Inn
These show the true importance of materialism in the value scheme of AMO's
and is just a sampling of an endless flood of such messages and the pervasive
mindset of distributors in AMO's.
Worship of "Upline God" and MaterialismÝ
"Come be with us" and Freedom
reports On Amvox:
These are the teasing messages from diamonds and emeralds to their downline
that say "see where WE are and you're NOT". What they're really
saying is "make us richer and you're reward will be to spend time with
US, "The Great Amsayers".

Promotion of Major Functions
Distributors in AMO's are endlessly bombarded with these promotions not
only on Amvox but at every possible chance at plan showings, second look
meetings, minor functions, product pickup, upline counseling sessions and
so on. The idea, of course, is to fill the many thousands of seats at Free
Enterprise Day, Leadership, Family Reunion and Dream Night. The higher the
attendance, the higher the profits for the "Black Hat" AMO distributors.
Function Promotion Hype
How to get to have breakfast with "celebrity" Dr. Dave. Just do
the 9 things and you'll be there. Never mind that 5 of the 9 things are
buying Amway or buying motivation.
The Christian Connection
These illustrate the Christian bias that pervades "the AMO system"
and Amway itself. The truth is that "the system" eventually weeds
out the "heathens" who attempt to work the business.Ý
Christianity: The Heart Of The
Knocking The J.O.B.
This material shows the anti-job programming used pervasively in the AMO
"system" to degrade workers as "inmates in the J.O.B prison".

JOB is Prison/Workers Are Sick Human
How You're Really Supposed To Build
A "special strategy meeting" with my former upline emerald sponsor.
This transcript is full of incriminations in terms of unethical strategies
for prospecting and inviting and the emphasis on the selling of motivation
rather than selling products. I have highlighted major examples in bold
and have included some comments in brackets. This section also has many
ideas that are primary reasons people may be lured into "the business."
It's possible you may be finding yourself hunting for the nearest AMO. If
so, remember: I am not responsible.
Emerald Distributor's Strategy
How To Accelerate The Road To Wealth
Dr. Dave's "Fast Track" scheme and ploy to get more names of prospects
around the country. This material shows two ways that Dr. Dave has devised
to get the people downline from him to "become more profitable at a
faster rate". One scheme is called "fast track" and the other
is getting names from everyone in his downline who they feel might be interested
in attending an organizational open in parts of the country where Dr. Dave
has not been able to "expand his business". What Dave really has
in mind here, however, is to create activity that will get him to double
diamond with less effort.
