Nxivm founder imprisoned:
Nxivm founder could be sentenced to life today. Keith Raniere,60, faces life in prison because Feds have convicted him of racketeering, sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, and human trafficking. Allegedly, he was using young women as sex slaves.
It’s supposed to be a multilevel marketing company in New York. It offers personal and professional development seminars. Nxivm is a cult because it acts as a cover to recruit young women for its secret society DOS. In this society, women are branded and forced to be sex slaves.
Co-founders of Nxivm:
Nxivm co-founders, Nancy and Lauren Salzman, Seagram heiress, Clare Bronfman, Kathy Russell, pleaded guilty to various charges. So Clare Bronfman has to serve six years and nine months in federal prison.
Popular Cult :
It’s strange but it’s true Keith Raniere was a popular man and still has 50-60 loyal supporters. They staged protests for him. Keith says he has nothing to regret. He also claims that the government and unknown enemies are plotting against him. The cult has many famous personalities like movie actors, socialites, bloggers, etc. Followers knew Raniere as Vanguard.
The existence of such cults shows how women are treated like slaves for generations. But the arrest of such criminals as Keith Raniere also brings a ray of hope. Justice is served with imprisonment of Nxivm Leader and his supporters.
HBO’s movie The Vow:
This movie sheds more light on the downfall of the Nxivm cult. HBO is coming with a documented series on this subject. It’s a nine-part series. Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer are the filmmakers. The movie is very humane and engrossing but at the same time, it’s also very frustrating as the topic is very intense.
