Damanhur and censorship on Facebook
It is not always possible to publish documents and photos, not all sites allow for it and it is therefore difficult for the reader who does not know the real situation to decide where the truth is to be found.
In these cases though there are certain aspects that can help us to unravel things, sometimes they are not very obvious and one needs to read between the lines but once they are picked up on they are truly illuminating:
The group managed by Damanhur on Facebook is a clear example of this.
Let’s take the ‘Damanhur’ group for example, in the description of the group one reads:
The Internet has a great virtue, anyone can write their own opinion. This virtue however can sometimes become a limit, a limit because on a given subject one can find a certain number of people who write “white” and the same number again who write “black”. How can we understand who is telling the truth and who is not?
< In this group we share our own personal experiences and the group can be a tool for people wanting to meet up in damanhur. For the people wanting to post there viewpoints on damanhur as a cult do it on the forums or anti damanhur group on facebook.>I think it speaks for itself, just positive comments; the group is an auto-celebration of Damanhur. I have also followed the Damanhur Denmark group for a while, different administrators but exactly the same management, same treatment reserved for critical posts: CENSORSHIP! Same useless attempt to justify things:
Incredible And exactly what criteria were followed in deciding whether or not to cancel the post? If the posts create MORE HARM THAN GOOD! GOOD for whom? The people who are reading or Damanhur??? If you read it again carefully you will discover an important detail, take a look: First the administrator writes about HER principles, then she writes that WE have decided: but WE who? Interesting isn’t it? Two groups that behave in exactly the same way. This is a clear demonstration of how Damanhur manages information: absolute control, the elimination of every critical voice, CENSORSHIP! Seeing how they behave here on Facebook, who has more credibility, those who say Damanhur is not democratic and that people inside are destroyed by it or those who say Damanhur is the height of democracy? It is often the details that give us the complete picture! Luca
