Emerald Passport Shuts Down and Polaris Media Group Rant

Emerald Passport Shuts Down and Polaris Media Group Rant

This comes from Michael Lemm who is one of the "good guys" in Network Marketing. Michael has given me permission to post his thoughts, tips and rants in the past and I don’t take advantage of it enough.  Michael’s blog is always interesting and next to this one, it is one of the longest running MLM Blogs on the web.  Check it out here.

On November 17th, 2009 one of the original two big ticket home businesses went bust. The other big ticket original is Liberty League. Now, of course, there have been several others come and go.

By big ticket I mean price points of $1,200, $5,700, and $10,900. They sold digital downloadable products.

Here’s what their web site says today. "The Emerald Passport income opportunity is no longer available due to the severe global economic downturn. There will be no new product sales."

Now I doubt that is the truthful reason. Yes, big ticket sales must be considerably harder now than a year ago, but operating a web site with downloadable product …. already established …. costs how much? A few hundred bucks a month at most?!! So they’re quitting after 5 years because of cost? I doubt it. There must be hidden reasons.

These are people with an official office address in Panama …. and a secretive owner in Canada who does not wish to be identified as the owner.

Liberty League also has re-vamped with a new name …. and they added lower priced products to the mix in an effort to work more with prospects neededing less of an up front investment. It appears that LL has morphed into Polaris Media which is still like LL – and still mostly all high ticket items!

Companies like Emerald get my blood pressure up! Compared to the companies that most MLMers work with, Emerald and their ilk simply aren’t legitimate. But people join them anyway looking for their fortune, and when it never appears they go on to slam the entire mlm industry.

Liberty League, Polaris Media Group and The Church of Scientology

Liberty League, Polaris Media Group and The Church of Scientology

Here’s a letter that Shane Krider sent out to Polaris Media Group distributors yesterday. Krider is the founder of Polaris Media Group and co-founder of Liberty League International.

Religious Freedom and Polaris

“There have been some comments and concerns voiced about me being a member of the Church of Scientology. I’m not here to defend my religion. What I believe is my personal choice. I don’t enforce it on others. And I certainly don’t expect them to enforce their views on me.

At Polaris we don’t practice or condone any form of discrimination – gender, race, sexual orientation or religion – because we believe that this a personal choice and it’s not relevant to the business.

I do take issue with people who discriminate on the subject of religion and confuse it with my business activities.

That’s like saying you won’t do business with someone who is Jewish or Muslim. Or refusing to buy from a Protestant or a Catholic. It’s just wrong.

Polaris is purely a business opportunity. We focus on helping people be the best they can and live a great life. If some people don’t want to participate because of my religion, that’s their choice. But instead of worrying about what I believe, look at what we do and what we produce. Judge us on the success of our distributors, our contribution to others and how we help those in need.

Now here are a few quotes regarding Scientology:

Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia has this to say:

"Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill… (Scientology is) the world’s largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy."

Justice Latey, ruling in the High Court of London had this to say:

"Scientology is both immoral and socially obnoxious…It is corrupt sinister and dangerous. It is corrupt because it is based on lies and deceit and has its real objective money and power for Mr. Hubbard… It is sinister because it indulges in infamous practices both to its adherents who do not toe the line unquestionably and to those who criticize it or oppose it. It is dangerous because it is out to capture people and to indoctrinate and brainwash them so they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult, withdrawn from ordinary thought, living, and relationships with others."

Also, check out OzSoapBox where Elena Fraga, a former Liberty League and Polaris Media Group representative has this to say:

" One fact that I can share here is that I was asked by the leadership of Polaris to take courses at the Hubbard School of Administration. I was told that they would help me on my leadership role in the company.

I was told that I needed to improved my Communication Skills and I needed that course I paid it as requested but I did not go. I cancelled at the last minute.

I did not know, at that time, that the Hubbard School of Administration is actually part of the Scientology Church."

There seems to be more and more evidence that Polaris Media Group (formerly Liberty League) is linked closely to Scientology.

Check out OzSoapBox for some compelling evidence that backs up this claim.

Does anyone have any information on this? It seems so far-fetched yet I’m tempted to believe it…
