"Richard, what would you call a person who beat all those people out of their money, people who mailed money ...in to you, in good faith, promised a year’s subscription, ...but left holding the bag when told something like:
“Something Very, VERY Important has come up and it is delaying the next newsletter coming out… but, “STAY TUNED!”
What would you call that type of person who would do that, Richard C. Hoagland?
You beat those people out of a lot of money, Richard C. Hoagland.
You beat me out of my money.
I’m still sore about it.
You USE people. You manipulate people. You make promises and then break them, with one of your most worn excuses – “something REELY important has come up and I’ve had to drop this whatever for a while, but I promise I’ll get back to you and “stay tuned, now!”… blaaahhhha!"
'Cicero' is Tim Redd, just one of many victims of the Hoagland bait-and switch. He added:
"I’ve stayed in awareness of your “mission” for going on 25 years and have thought on occasion that you showed flashes of brilliance in your thinking, or in your ability to communicate a complex idea… but lately I have had to Re-Evaluate your whole trip and the conclusion I’ve come to is that going to the core of who you are - you are really little more than a Hustler and a Cult Leader™."
It's really shameful that Hoagland failed to respond, either then or now (as far as we know—there is a possibility that he responded privately, of course.)
The best we can hope for publicly, based on past performance, is a counter-accusation that Cicero is a paid disinformation agent. Which he is not, and neither am I.
