It is important to read this post again CAREFULLY:
The most important things to notice about this post are:
1) "If we can't do the work to go within then we should absolutely keep our mouths shut..."
The reference to "do the work" is doublespeak for asking "yourself" for the correctness of "info" provided through the currencyland network of gurus. There is no mention of critical thinking, of rational analysis of facts, or inquiry through secondary reliable sources, or the simple application of logic. No, "stevie" has put into words of so many who "lead" within currencyland: Accept what you're told and ask no questions about it, even when the things you're told are promptly proved to be false.
2) "It is disheartening to me to see the criticism that Yosef gets."
It may, indeed, be hard on the emotions of "Yosef" or those who adore him to hear the criticisms leveled at him. We must remember, however, that words have meaning and actions have consequences. For a number of months, "Yosef" has continuously made proclamations and announcements about specific and observable events which he states will occur "at midnight" or "tomorrow", or "this weekend". His public statements of this sort (recorded on several popular "dinar sites") are unequivocal and nearly every week for months. The problem is that each and every single one has proved to be simply and unarguably incorrect. No one reading these words would hire a tax preparer who handled facts similarly. What is "disheartening" is "Yosef's" audacity in holding himself out as one with useful information. Such frequent and pervasive falsity from one man amplifies the oddity of him being used as a source in currencyland. My conclusion of this oddity is based on facts, not opinion.
3) "It is absolutely critical that what we spread is the absolute truth not lies."
"stevie" declared this as his predicate to the point he make which I labeled as number 1 above. This possibly strikes me as the most remarkable thing said. Essentially, "stevie" suggests we ask OURSELVES if what we're fed by dinar gurus is true. He makes no suggestion about rational or logical thinking. Presumably, if we "feel" "Yosef" was true, then he is! Folks, these are professional sales techniques - provoke a positive emotional response and decision follows suit. No! The way to know you're not being sold used encyclopedias, or a lemon car, or cheap roof coating is by thinking rationally and logically! Where did you get the materials? Who owned it last? Are there referrals or other sources I can confirm with? As to "Yoseph (who is mentioned only as an example - there are many like him), such questions are shunned and harshly discouraged! Such questions are deemed "negative", "distrustful", "from the cabal", "from a divisive spirit", etc. These criticisms are DESIGNED to suppress rational and reasonable questions. Inquiring is not inquisition. Discussion is not damnation. Expressing concerns is not evoking conflict.
Criticism is fitting when the object of that criticism has created their own "cabal" which demands mindless acceptance. Do any of us want a heart surgeon who "did the work of going within" to discover how to perform a transmyocardial revascularization? How about an EMT who trained by merely "going within" to know where your inferior border of the cricoid cartilage is located to perform a field tracheostomy because you can't breathe? Different? No, because facts are facts - or, they are not.
We are adults and must undertake the right to think rationally and critically (meaning objective analysis and evaluation of an issue). It's childish to disregard facts and we must never allow a clever appeal to our faith, or a charismatic person to beguile us, into behaving otherwise for any reason.
