Shadow State: Allison Mack must have had a sado-masochistic streak all along

By Shadow State 1958

Allison Mack wasn’t really brainwashed. She enthusiastically joined in after she found out what it was really all about. She must have had a sadistic or sadomasochistic streak all along. She certainly was power hungry. So I don’t think her eyes were shut to what was going on. The only thing she may not have seen coming was the consequences she would face.

It is actually interesting that many of the female leaders within NXIVM were initially skeptical: Nancy, Clare, Allison…

Were Allison and the other the NXIVM members who went down to Mexico so frequently not only involved in money laundering and human trafficking also involved in drug trafficking?

Did some of NXIVM’s operations in Mexico help finance Basit Igtet’s (Mr. Sara Bronfman’s) political activities in Libya?

Why were Allison Mack, Lauren Salzman, and Nicki Clyne down in Mexico in March?

As mules carrying bulk cash or illegal contraband?

As a team to lure NXIVM’s enemies into a trap?

Inquiring minds want to know.

A cult is like an onion. It has many different layers that have to be peeled away before one reaches the true essence of the cult.

NXIVM had thousands of people go through its courses, most of whom knew little or nothing about the sex cult or the tortures associated with it.

Only a small elite in NXIVM ‘s Albany Vatican knew the full truth.

And the worst physical abuses only occurred in the last few years as Pam Cafritz lay dying and Allison Mack rose to power, long after Kristen Kreuk left the cult.

In a better world could Kreuk have done better?

Of course, but we don’t live in a perfect world.

Focus your ire on the devious, depraved people who really created the Horrors of NXIVM.

  • This post and all your other rants about Allison Mack are disgusting. Yes, she deserves to be held accountable. But your posts reveal less about her wrongdoing and more about your sick obsession with her. You look down on her for being obsessed with Raniere but you’re even more obsessed with her. You’re a hateful stalker that’s obsessed with tearing her down every chance you get. You’re just as bad as she is.

  • How about canning or edit the comments accusing Shadowstate of “Being rejected by Mack” or other insinuations that there was this relationship. Unless of course it can be backed up.
    Shadowstate is over the top but critic the writing. Making something up is no different than name calling imo

  • Brain washing is a long, calculated, drawn out process. It doesn’t just happen overnight. Something starts off as innocent then slowly they reel you in and mess with your mind. Some people may notice something isn’t right and get the hell out but others won’t. We are all different with different personality traits, different back stories and experiences. For me it’s not hard to believe once lovely, caring people have been changed for the worse. It happens.

    • Well said Natashka. It does happen. And, to the best of us. There are so many more scams today to be mindful of than ever before. Social media has become part of the problem.

  • Are the defense attorneys all bad and evil people too? Some of the comments it’s easier to see how Raniere convinced these people of “The Mission”.

  • Why is Shadow still obsessed with Allison Mack?

    Shadow doesn’t care about the victims.

    He is an angry little man with a hate streak towards someone who rejected him.

    Shadow go seek help!

    • Please keep your religion to yourself.

      America is the revival of the Roman Empire and the torch bearer for Western Civilization.
      For Civilization to Survive America must impose rectitude and good moral values on the world.
      All who threaten America’s moral values, at home or abroad, must be considered enemies of the American Republic.

      We can not afford Christian tolerance of iniquity.

  • I don’t buy this theory about Allison. The obviously increasing instability of her mental status in her online communications, in addition to what are mostly glowing opinions of her pre-Vanguard, indicate to me that she really is brainwashed. Not seeking power so much as validation, Not loving the title “Madam” for the deference of the underlings so much as a sign that she had done well. She, like nearly all of the women that don’t have the last name Salzman or Brofman, was in all liklyhood simply drawn in and twisted around until wrong was right and the “ends justify the means” became gospel. While she and others have to pay, it needs to be in a psych ward more than a federal prison.

    • I agree with ThatGuy. From all reports of those who worked with her pre-Vanguard (her fellow Smallville cast, for instance), she was a friendly, sweet young woman before she encountered Raniere. Her mental instability is quite obvious in the various articles that have come out over the past nine months (and in the messages she herself has left visible on social media) – as is the fact that she underwent a process deliberately designed to reel her in – and then brainwash her. The love bombing is well documented, and there’s plenty of details out there about the various methods of brainwashing used by Raniere (sleep deprivation, for one, is a major factor). Once he got her hooked, he could transform her mind.

      People do NOT have to start out twisted to become that way – and not necessarily by choice, either. Just look at the number of murderers whose parents say they were sweet as children and wouldn’t hurt a fly. Obviously some parents are just plain blind – but there are those who can point to specific events, the influence of certain bad friends, etc., that sent otherwise good people down evil paths. Brainwashing not only takes people down those paths, but controls their thinking processes so they don’t consciously realize what they’re doing. The cognitive dissonance can become rather great and that’s a lot of what we’ve seen in what she’s said here and there.

      AM is very clearly still brainwashed to a major extent, and I also agree that she needs to be held in a psych ward more than prison. Think of it this way – if she goes to prison while still brainwashed, she’ll feel she’s only doing the right thing for her master. It may make the rest of us feel better, but she wouldn’t actually consciously suffer for the wrongs she’s done. On the other hand, should she get the psychiatric help she needs to come out of the brainwashing and realize what evil she’s actually done, she’ll be dealing with the guilt from that for years upon years, and guilt punishes one FAR better than any external punishment could do. Getting her un-brainwashed so she’ll consciously feel the guilt from her actions is the worst punishment she could ever have, and I hope she’ll get to that point, for everyone’s sake.

  • “And the worst physical abuses only occurred in the last few years as Pam Cafritz lay dying and Allison Mack rose to power, long after Kristen Kreuk left the cult.”

    You never even heard of NXIVM until after Allison Mack rejected you and you found out about the branding story from Frank Report.

    Why do you keep bringing up Kristin Kreuk in your long repetitive hate filled essays? It’s because you hate Mack so much for making you feel rejected that you want all the hate on her. DOS was formed in 2015 and was exposed in 2017. Two years. Kristin Kreuk was still a coach in 2015 at the earliest. Even if DOS never existed, NXIVM was still an evil criminal cult and Kristin Kreuk, Allison Mack and all the other NXIVM characters known about on Frank Report were a part of it and knew about unethical and illegal behaviour in the cult. They didn’t care. The cult made them feel important. They didn’t just find out bad stuff in 2017.

    Frank keeps posting your bullshit for what ever reasons but you are the one who keeps writing this stuff. Get a hooker or a tinder slut, do some exercise, socialise face to face with people in real life, get a hobby, volunteer…

    • – Kristin Kreuk was still a coach in 2015 at the earliest.

      Nope. Just because you keep saying this doesn’t make it true.

      • I didn’t believe your accusations about Kreuk the first ten times you wrote them. But you keep repeating them, so they must be true—so I’m starting to believe she should be prosecuted.

        She was still around when DOS was formed and probably was one of the first masters–maybe even Mack’s master, who Kreuk recruited. Plus, people are forgetting about how she muled all that money from Vancouver to Tacoma,

        So “Why 8:56”—please send all you KK posts directly to the Feds and when they read them ten times I’m sure they will believe you, too, and arrest the virtue signally crook.

    • The hate filled bullshit has been directed by Allison Mack fans towards Kristen Kreuk to
      divert attention from Allison Mack’s many crimes.

      I confidently predict that Kristen Kreuk will not be indicted.

      Attacking Kreuk is a way for Alison Mack’s fans to defend Mack’s criminal conduct.

  • I agree the Alison I knew for 4 years was a very confident women and didn’t seem like a victim at all

  • Good points on Ms Kristin Kreuk, her alleged involvement, Kristin not Kristen, just saying. I was 1 person almost sweept into a such pyramid scheme, multilevel marketing organization, & I was, am an adult, so I understand how easy it would be 2 sweep in via her boyfriend, a young, impresionable, inexperienced almost what… barely out of adolescence actress like Kristin Kreuk. Maybe Mack was the same when she entered & the brainwashing, acting on emotional impulse got here where she is now.

    • Yes Kristin not Kristen. You would think such an esteemed journalist would know about the subject he is writing about.

      • THIS! The long endlessly repeated list of salacious allegations are painful enough to have to get through, but not even bothering to spell a known Allison Mack collaborator’s name correctly? For shame, your press credentials could get pulled.

    • You are a super fan of Kristin Kreuk. What do you know what she did in NXIVM? Absolutely nothing.

    • She was 23 making more money than adults twice her age who have been working for two decades or more. She’s not a child. The Forbes article on NXIVM was published in 2003 which she read. She foolishly joined a cult because of what a stupid guy told her even though there were plenty of existing warning signs, the previously mentioned article, and the loads of information that was published on the website of known cult expert Rick Ross. An entire article with her name in the headline which she must have known about was posted on that website: “Has a ‘cult’ recruited ‘Smallville’ star Kristin Kreuk?” She knew of all the rumors about the cult leader sleeping around and still continued to be involved. She deserves all of the bad publicity that came along with it for being involved in it for so long. She’s lucky she got out when she did. If tabloid speculation linking her to a sex cult due to her Allison Mack “Smallville” connection and this blog is all the trouble she gets because of her involvement then she should be grateful for however she got out because it could’ve been worse for her and her career. Some people have had their lives screwed up for worse.
