We live in a time where we are given our freedoms of life, choice and religion.  What a wonderful time and it is sad that there are always predators in each time  finding a way to scam people.  It is difficult to help the masses of individuals to understand the pain caused by brainwashing using fear, emotional abuse and psychological control.  I understand how their can be a misconceptions and judgments against these victims. Before I went through this experience I thought I was very educated and strong, came from a great family and probably would not have had the understanding and compassion toward cult followers/survivors or abuse survivors that I have now.  Life has humbled me and helped me to understand how even the strongest mind can be manipulated.  A strong sense of self, educated and healthy ego of oneself can be unusually susceptible.  Mostly because this is the type of person who thinks they can never be manipulated by these type of brilliant groups.  So i ask that people that post on this site rise above judgments and understand that we are feeling empowerment and healing by speaking our truth but more importantly we are educating and warning others of the danger of this group and others like it.  We take ourselves very seriously because we have been through a very seriously painful experience, we would appreciate a level of understanding and maturity when reading and responding to our stories. It is very important that the world we live in continues to give us our freedoms however the compassion and understanding toward groups who take advantage of our freedoms should be stopped.  The masses need to be truly  educated. We have another site (((Redacted))) where we have posted and I found such a poignant posting written by an individual who was not in the Tribe but was effected by them from the outside.  I felt it necessary to post his position on what he found in dealing with the Tribe, especially about Magic Mendez. "I have never been associated with this Tribe but I knew Magic a few years ago and I can say this much. He talks the talk but does not walk the walk. His philosophy of stand together or fall apart is not at all what he lives by. He will not stand with a brother. He is a two-faced coward and when the chips are down is out only for himself. I know this from personal experience. He will stand by and allow injustice instead of speaking out if there is the slightest risk of any kind involved to him or his interests. This is in direct contradiction to his stated philosophy which he shouts from the rooftops. Magic is a real phony, and I support and defend the honest and brave people willing to endure risk and embarrassment in order to do the right thing in trying to spare others the grief they themselves have experienced. That is what a REAL unified tribe will do . . . and that is what all REAL Brothers and Sisters can do for each other. We CAN stand together against sickness, predation, and injustice and the only leader required is in the heart and spirit of each one of us. May Courage and Clarity prevail." Namaste Thank you to who posted this, I felt there needed  to be a refocus on our message and the passion we have to get out the truth the warn others.  It is time to bring seriousness and maturity back to our message.

Again Merl, I and others are no longer wasting our time reading your posts.  You are now completely wasting your time by focusing on us, we do not care about your crazy banter.  You are trying to debunk our message and you might be Magic himself. 

Moving on with the Healing.  Thank you.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Fear and Loathing

AUTHOR: Merl - (U.S.A.)

I would say, judging by the angry tone of your rebuttal, that you did in fact read my post, and furthermore, that I hit the nail on the head. Concerned, you're now going to try and blame me for your failure? I must be a tribe member because I was able to see through your glass wall? You didn't get rich and famous and that's my fault so I must be a tribe member! Wow, with logic like that, I can't believe you're not the star of some show on VH1 by now...or at the least work for Fox News. Blame everybody else around you, because you're too afraid to blame yourself.
My interest in this nonsense started out because i saw a video of UT on youtube, and wanted to know more about them. I bought a CD and listened to it, then posted my feeling that it was way over produced and sounded like a garage band. I then started seeing all of these "hate" posts from people such as yourself Concerned. When I began asking questions about some of the stuff you were posting, I instantly became the villain. I didn't blindly just follow your cause and assume that you're right and 100% truthful, so I became a bad guy. Wait a minute, oh my gosh...I didn't blindly follow you, and believe everything you say, and...isn't that the stuff you said this Magic guy does? So either you are Magic, or you're just like him and angry that somebody is questioning you. Hmmm how's that one taste Concerned?
Take a good hard look in the mirror Concerned. I bet you can't even look at yourself for 30 seconds without blaming something around you for being such an ugly, and pathetic person.

Hugs always,
Merl

P.S. You've still never answered any of my questions.

You are a delema

AUTHOR: Concerned - (U.S.A.)

I didn't waste my time reading your rebuttal because your attention to our cause is ridiculous.  Myself and others are starting to think that you are probably in the tribe or are trying to stick up for them in some twisted way.  That is the only logical explanation why you need to pay so much attention to our postings.  Ontop of that and everything we have posted you continue to be so critical and horrible about our situation.  We have been through much worse so I would like to suggest to the rest of the world to not waste your time reading any posts from MERL, this person is clearly sick and not a credibal source of information.  MERL is more than likely a tribe member just trying to debunk our message.  IF YOU ARE HERE TO HELP TRIBE VICTIMS IGNORE MERL'S POSTINGS!!!!!!

Continue moving on, healing and bringing out the truth everyone.  Clearly Merl is just as sick as the tribe and most likely is one of them.

Deeper delema.

This is a good story, and I am glad that the person who wrote it is having some form of success in their life. However, with all these different rants on this and other sites, none of you are willing to answer the questions as to how you're truly victims? You joined up with this group under the notion that you were going to big big stars, and maybe change the world. But come on, it was more about the idea of being rich and famous right? You joined when you were young and impressionable, or because you had very low self esteem and playing music with other people helped that. (which by the way is very good for people with esteem, and trust issues.) But it didn't turn out the way you all had planed. You may have toured with other obscure groups, but you didn't make it big. You didn't get signed by any label, but you convinced yourselves that it's better to be independent artists correct? (I applaud independent artists, and I feel that more music should be in the hands of the artists.) Whatever your reasoning behind that idea is your own. If you were truly talented individuals, you could have signed as solo artists, or formed a different group. But you CHOSE to stay in UT, and with your failing leader. What was it you said Concerned in an earlier post, that you've spent more than a decade in UT? So how exactly does you making the decision to stay in a job that's making no money, and not being allowed to grow as a musician constitute vicitimization? You could have moved on.
After reading countless rants on this and other sites about Magic Mendez, I am beginning to see that this is more about hurt feeling for not becoming famous, than it is about anything else. I have said it multiple times on here already, if something illegal is going on, report it to the police. You immediately come back with excuses why you can't, or that I'm just being insensitive or mean. You avoid the questions asking for proof of all these claims, and instead, just start new threads on here, or call me insensitive.
No, once again, this is nothing more than another attempt to draw attention to a group that has long outlived it's welcome.
You can continue to post hate responses to me, saying that I am mean, insensitive, whatever; but it's still not going to change the fact that until you get out from behind your computer, and start presenting some real facts, and real evidence, nobody is going to listen to anything you have to say.

Sorry Concerned, and any other bitter triber posting on here because you didn't get rich and famous, but it's time for you people to grow up.
