    Be­fore found­ing NXIVM, Raniere cre­ated Con­sumers Buy­line, a busi­ness ven­ture that the New York At­tor­ney Gen­eral ac­cused of hav­ing been a pyra­mid scheme; Raniere signed a con­sent order in 1996 in which he de­nied any wrong­do­ing, but agreed to pay a $40,000 fine and to be per­ma­nently banned from "pro­mot­ing, of­fer­ing or grant­ing par­tic­i­pa­tion in a chain dis­tri­b­u­tion scheme".

    In NXIVM classes, rank was dis­played through col­ored sashes, sim­i­lar to col­ored belts in mar­tial arts. NXIVM drew up a 12-point "Mis­sion State­ment" which par­tic­i­pants re­cited dur­ing classes, pledg­ing to "purge" them­selves "of all par­a­site and envy-based habits", to en­roll oth­ers, and to "eth­i­cally con­trol as much of the money, wealth and re­sources of the world as pos­si­ble within my suc­cess plan".Pho­tographs of Raniere and Nancy Salz­man were dis­played dur­ing classes, which would con­clude with par­tic­i­pants show­ing grat­i­tude to the two leaders. NXIVM con­ducted "In­ten­sives" classes for 12 hours daily for 16 days. One cited price was $7,500. Classes were di­vided into mod­ules. In one mod­ule, "Re­la­tion­ship Sourc­ing", stu­dents were in­structed to ex­plore the ben­e­fits they would re­ceive in the event of a part­ner's sud­den death. An­other mod­ule, "Drac­ula and his ghouls", re­port­edly dis­cussed psy­chopaths and their fol­low­ers. Other m...

    Be­gin­ning in July 2020, at least six NXIVM loy­al­ists were or­ga­niz­ing dance protests out­side the de­ten­tion cen­ter which houses Raniere. Op­er­at­ing under the name We Are As You, dancers in­cluded actor Nicki Clyne and brand­ing doc­tor Danielle Roberts. While in­car­cer­ated, Raniere has main­tained his lead­er­ship role over NXIVM, reg­u­larly com­mu­ni­cat­ing with his fol­low­ers by phone. Raniere in­structed his fol­low­ers to so­licit the as­sis­tance of Alan Der­showitz, the at­tor­ney who suc­cess­fully ne­go­ti­ated a non-pros­e­cu­tion agree­ment of Jef­frey Ep­stein.Raniere gave false names of peo­ple he was al­legedly call­ing to prison of­fi­cials, and call re­cip­i­ents em­ployed "burner phones" in an at­tempt to avoid de­tec­tion. In one in­stance, Raniere in­structed a fol­lower to "get scrutiny" on the judge in his case, ex­plain­ing that "the judge needs to know he's being watched". On Sep­tem­ber 25, 2020, NXIVM leader Suneel Chakra­vorty emailed pros­e­...

    NXIVM boasts "a remarkable development in scientific and psychodynamic understanding, education, and technology that can facilitate this transition so the pattern of humanity's rises and falls can actually be broken and transformed." Former Smallville star Kristin Kreuk allegedly recruited her co-star, Allison Mack, into the cult. She was sent to a self-help retreat which turned out to be one of their recruitment seminars. Kreuk just barely got in and then got out, but Mack did not. She co-founded the sex sect, recruited and kept the women underfed, branded them with her initials, and introduced corporal punishment along with her leader. Grace Park and Nicki Clyne were also involved in the organization in some capacity. Clearly, Raniere is trying to fuck and brand all the women from your favorite sci-fishows as a kid. In addition, the guy got two heiresses to give him $60 million.

    While gratuitous comparisons to Scientology annoy the experienced cult watcher, it really doesn't help NXIVM's case when they take their moves straight out of said tax-deductible religion's playbook: 1. They label dissenters "suppressives". 2. They respond to said dissenters with attempted overwhelming legal force (to the point where judges call them out on it). 3. They sent private investigators to go through Rick Ross's garbage cans, of all the people to try such a stunt on. 4. They also tried to sue Ross for copyrightviolations when he quoted their material to criticise it, which surprisingly enough didn't work out too well for them. 5. They even citeda Scientology lawsuit victory as a defense against the forced labor / nude photo blackmail charges filed in the sorority scandal.

    A secret sorority within the organization, said to have started in 2015, was discovered in 2017, with female recruits being non-consensually branded with a mark below their hip after being asked to voluntarily offer naked photographs and other compromising material as "collateral" and a show of trust. The sorority was structured around obedience, with each circle led by a "master" who would recruit six "slaves", who were then expected to recruit slaves of their own. Punishments for lack of strict obedience included fasting and corporal punishments. Over time, more collateral was demanded from its members. Text messages suggest that Raniere was aware of its practices including the brand which incorporated his initials.According to court testimony by ex-member Lauren Salzman, Raniere envisioned having thousands of slaves. In 2018, Raniere was indicted with charges of sex trafficking, sex trafficking conspiracy and conspiracy to commit forced labor. Allison Mack was arrested and charge...

    In 2006, Mack joined NXIVM after attending a two-day introduction to "Jness", a women's group within NXIVM. In a 2003 article from Forbes, advocates of NXIVM portrayed it as an organization focused on inspirational executive coaching, "like a practical MBA", while detractors accused the founder Keith Raniere of running "a cult-like program aimed at breaking down his subjects psychologically".
