I have sat back and watched in frustration as
people have given their power away to these types
of people rather than do critical thinking.

While Doug still has his issues, he wouldn't be
who he is today if people didn't put him up on a
pedestal and drink his Kool-Aid lies there's
still a lot of gullibility going on.

I had one of his fasters tell me that they think
they are a good judge of character and I just
about fell off my seat. Even after I told them
all the facts and shared the court documents. And
this person was 63.

I saw Doug for who and what he was immediately
upon meeting him in person and I think we need to
start having the conversation about how we come
to judgments about other people. I think the
internet plays a part as well since people can
hide a lot online.

Sure there are people like Doug who are deceptive
and sure there are all of his followers who have
taken the Kool-Aid, but what's inside of US that
we don't trust our own perceptions and instead
need to rely on the advice of other people?

What criteria do we use for evaluating people and
things?

The same criteria I used for evaluating the
situation was "poo pooed" by many of my
acquantances who thought I was overreacting.

Victoria Boutenko has a great foreward in one of
her books about a person who got off a bus that
kept going in the wrong direction while everyone
else was happily singing on the bus acting like
everything was okay.

She kept seeing the signs on the side of the road
saying "no gas station for the next 100 miles" or
something like that and she finally got off the
bus while everyone else was like "where are you
going, are you nuts".

We we have to learn to trust our own intuition
and not follow the crowd off the cliff even if
they are the majority and we are the minority.

Young people have the "follow the crowd
mentality" and even some grown adults have never
found their voices.

They will continue to pay the price until they
are finally willing to stand on their own two
feet and learn the lessons.
