  • NXIVM is a hard thing to explain. Depending on who you ask it’s either a series of executive success programs, a multi-level marketing program, a sex cult, or, as their website puts it, “a community guided by humanitarian principles that seek to empower people and answer important questions about what it means to be human…” Lee explains the intricacies of the cult and why its been in national headlines the past few weeks.Click here to subscribe to VICE: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICEAbout VICE:The Definitive Guide To Enlightening Information.

    Why did they prosecute NXIVM but never attack Scientology? It's basically the same scam. People have died under Scientology "training".

    Scientology doesn't get prosecuted because its owned by the us government. They took it over after Hubbard died under a corporation called CST

    Raniere did in fact lift a number of the Nxivm techniques directly from $cientology after taking a number of their "courses".
