 Hispanics being targeted: This is a well-documented strategy among MLMs/pyramid-shaped schemes. See companies like Herbalife.

 Survivorship Bias is the well-known fallacy that if you find yourself successful, you may falsely start believing that anyone can be equally successful, neglecting everyone who tried just as hard and didn’t achieve the same things. This runs RAMPANT in pyramid selling. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Survivorship_bias
 Only 3/1000 make any money in pyramid schemes after the costs of doing business are added in. Based on analyzing 350 MLMs.
See Dr. Jon Taylor’s brilliant work here:
 Regulatory Capture
Something that didn’t make it into the video explicitly but is worth mentioning. If you find yourself scratching your head, HOW ARE THESE THINGS STILL LEGAL?!, you should look no further than our lovely Federal Trade Commission who has been lobbied to for years and has kept never seriously acted on pyramid schemes except to slap them on the wrist. MLMs own an impressive amount of political power, EX: Amway has DIRECT ties to three (bush sr, clinton, bush jr) of the last 5 sitting presidents.

Are you actually talking about MLMs the entire time?
Yes. MLMs and product-driven pyramid schemes are basically a distinction without a difference. And the word “multi-level marketing is a bit misleading which is why I avoided it. It’s using terminology that was invented to obfuscate what is actually going on. The old word for MLMs was “pyramid selling.” You can imagine why that was abandoned. Even now, the word “multilevel marketing” is being distanced from, the new new word is “direct selling”. Look at the lobbying group Direct Selling Association who is heavily funded by MLMs. I couldn’t find the words Multi-Level Marketing anywhere on the website. All this to say, don’t let other people control the language of the discussion, otherwise you’ve lost half the battle. See my previous video on Industry Funded Research, where the gambling lobbying group calls themselves the National Center of Responsible “GAMING”. It’s the same trick being played.
Why does the video get so dark?
MLMs have an extremely predatory side to them that I wanted to explore. If you got upset or frustrated in this video, that is probably indicative that you having a working heart.
