Cult Member: Allison Mack is too far gone to ever be salvaged  

By G.

I feel I know these Nxivm people, having once been in a cult myself [not Nxivm]. I even lived in community with other cult members for 7 to 8 months.  I not only witnessed the social dynamics of members I knew in the cult over the years, BUT I’ve done my homework, after I left the cult, reading everything about cults that I could get my hands on.

At the time I first left, there was little on the subject. Now there is so much more information about cults and how they function.

The names of these groups vary, but the behaviors, and the outcome, is the same.

Only by sheer luck, and I do mean luck, did I get out alive. For an entire year after I left the cult, I broke down and cried every day.

In my opinion and based on my experience:

Allison is, and this is brutal honesty, too far gone to ever be salvaged.  Too much damage has been done to her psyche.

Depending on one’s length of time involved, degree of commitment and how much one has sacrificed and lost — family, jobs, assets, etc., will determine how much recovery one can accomplish once one disconnects, if one ever does.  Some go from cult to cult.

India has a chance. Allison none.

Nancy and Clare are what I would term a write-off on a balance sheet. Valueless.

As for dear old Vanguard? Would he were never born.

Frankly, I believe what happened was a perfect storm of Keith and his MLM schlock, Nancy, Bronfman money and B-list nubile young actresses.

Sadly, too many reaped that whirlwind.

Some paid with their lives. Others their reputations and pocket book.

About time the unholy troika, or the gang of 7 as I term them, pay the piper.

  • g I very much appreciate this article and sharing your story and insights into how a cult controls people’s minds. Thank you for taking the time to try and help other people who have found themselves victim and may not know where to turn. Your comments are always thoughtful. Why people posting here like to lash out at others under the anonymity cloak shows they have a need to try and hurt other people in order to make themselves feel superior. These people aren’t deserving of a second look.

    I concur with your opinion that Ms Mack is still, very much, under the spell KAR cast and is willing to do his bidding. I do hope she breaks free at some point.

    My mind turns to Ms Kreuk and things people have written here on Frank Report. If she was so deep into NXIVM could she still be a part of the group but be able to hide it? Could she be seen as the leader of a rebuild in the future? I was just wondering if this seems feasible to you.

      She was in just as deep as the cunt she recruited. The things Frank Report posters say about Kreuk is applicable to Mack. They both knew about financial crimes and the pedophilia of their beloved Keith Raniere.

      How could Allison Mack go from thinking she was in a “self help group” then overnight a sex slaver who brands women? She didn’t. She first had to know other things… and not care. Just like Kristin Kreuk, who moved full time to Toronto for filming in 2013 and pretends she left the cult. She didn’t. Ask anyone from the Vancouver branch if she actually quit. It was once the world press were talking about NXISCUM in 2017 that she decided she didn’t want to be publicly associated with the cult. The press could of and should of gone after the cult, Kreuk and Mack all the way back in 2012. The press didn’t and Kreuk and Mack didn’t care as there was no affect on them. The press can still talk about Kreuk true role…

    • “If Ms Kreuk was so deep into NXIVM could she still be a part of the group but be able to hide it? Could she be seen as the leader of a rebuild in the future? ”
      Yes, this would explain why no one can prove when or if she really left the cult. And explains that virtue signalling is to fool recruits that she and the rebuilt cult will be for good. It all makes sense now.

    • Umm, Leon, unless you sonehow rose from the grave, are you THE famous Leon Festinger?
      If not, why this moniker and not some other?
      I would be honored if you were his spirit come to life but methinks that is wishful thinking and I don’t believe in ghosts.
      Yet, think of the discussions we could engage in, long into the night. I would find it most intriguing.
      So….who really is Leon? Hmmm?

  • You sir are not her judge, I know of people who ones have given up on whom the hand of God has touch and redeemed them, No one is ever too far gone.

    You said you cried after you got out of the cult you were involved in as you pointed in another article Allison Mack is now crying maybe she is feeling the way you did.

    Mr. Parlato here’s a valuable lesson for you to learn because from what i have read you like me and everyone else has made mistakes. Now what you need to ask yourself is when it comes time to be judged do you want to judged the way you are judging Allison Mack?

    Matthew 7:1-5

    7 “Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. 3 And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

  • I suspect Allie Whack was done for when her parents prostituted her out as a child “actor”, so she was probably a monster well before Raniere got her in his grip to steer her degenerate tendencies.

    As for the small-minded, jealous comment trolls, they seem to be too dense to realize G has been posting here for a bit, and said they are local to either Clifton Park or Half Moon.

    • My response to anonymous.
      Seems to me you are attemtping to “out” me. Is that so you can stalk me? Is that why you mention those two towns? I wouldn’t do that if I were you.
      Someone warned me about how they were stalked online
      As for “cribbing” someone elses notes.
      I steal from no one.
      I gather that’s your attempt to slander and discredit me. Or, is it, a way to divide the commentors on Frank’s blog?
      I suggest you are up to no good.
      As for lacking sympathy for Allison.
      Wrong again. I mourn all that has been stripped from her by those who do not mean her well.
      One had to be realistic, though, and triage what is honestly salvageable and worthy of saving and what is beyond redemption.
      My compassion is for Heidi and the loss of her sister. We know of 2 women whose lives were taken from them because of these people.
      I am done spreading my compassion thin. I will husband it and spend it on the victims and friends and families of the victims, both alive and deceased.
      As for feigning my involvement in a cult.
      I wish I were a liar but…I am not.
      A cult is likened to mental rape. One never forgets being raped, physically nor mentally.

  • I seriously doubt you’ve ever been in a real organization that uses spiritual techniques. You would understand and sympathize with those who are affected by the power and ceremony of self correction and self control. Allison Mack bought the vision, that’s all. She tried to live to an ideal set by a teacher who was probably not worthy of her trust.

  • There’s a podcast out there with a cult survivor (not NXIVM, but a cult that was around in the 70s/80s) who says pretty much the same thing. Either this is the same woman or it’s someone else cribbing from this woman’s interview.

    I wish I found reading as enjoyable as you. I think girls are better than guys at it and I think you have to start young to develop a taste for it, more so now in the ADD era than in the past. I was always better at the math and science instead of the verbal stuff, although I did attempt to woo with some poetry a beautiful girl once, albeit not so successfully.

    @systemic.anomaly one other thing: this girl was coincidentally a big Star Trek fan like you. I mean, I don’t know how big of a fan of it you were/are compared to her. I just read somewhere that you were a fan. I wasn’t a fan so to speak although I did often watch Star Trek: The Next Generation a long time ago. I thought I was most like Spock of all the characters, and he isn’t exactly the rock and roll type that gets the girls. But he is logical and (sometimes) insightful.

  • Wow, g. That’s powerful. Thanks, I needed that today.

    Seriously, it even crossed my mind (very briefly) to take a drive down to Allie’s house with Gina’s journal and have a conversation with her and her parents that probably would have really put me in prison. And, if I didn’t have a son who needs me more than anyone, along with some reassurance like yours as to the fruitlessness of such a well-intended journey, anyway…

    I guess, at our age, ya just gotta live and let die. Your survival is an inspiration. …You know what really “survivor” sucks, is the fact that despite that, you still can’t save anyone from them self.

    • Hiedi, if you think showing Allison the journal might help, then maybe you should try. I don’t see why you’d get in legal trouble. Just don’t make any threats, or try to climb through the window.

  • It’s too early to claim she is “too far gone”. There are people raised in cults from birth who extricate themselves to lead fruitful lives after the fact. It might take a long time and a lot of deprogramming and healing but it can be done. Human beings aren’t automatons made in exactly the same way on an assembly line.
