Here is the initial post in this thread that started this particular discussion about “flee funds”, followed by your initial response:

Every Cro and media spokesman had/has a bank account hovering around 100,000 us dollars in recent years.

People like Tim Peter's and Hack were always involved in confiscating every last penny of their particular home members or area members "flee funds" or "survival funds."

These moneys were usually confiscated under the duress and coercion of "red alert -- persecution"; the leaders would say, "the brethern in Argentina, Australia, etc. need our help. Give us all your 'flee funds' for the effort.

That is a load of crock. There has been no flee funds in the TFI for over 15 years now.

Can't believe someone could say such a stupid thing!

You’ve continued to harp on the issue of flee funds/emergency funds in subsequent posts, and now expect me to explain to you how that now works in TFI. Like I said, you are trying to make this about us, about how uninformed you think we are about TFI, just like Family members/supporter do, while ignoring the more serious issues like spiritual coercion and abuse, and charity fraud that is endemic in TFI. You make it sound like TFI has completely reformed, and that there is now total transparency and personal autonomy, which is what defenders of TFI do.

You reveal your tactics and show just how ignorant you are when you state: “Thought for a moment you were having an OT2 moment with the stupid comment.” You made the "stupid coment". I was merely parodying your comment to Broken, Broke and Robbed that he was stupid for making the comment he did about flee funds. Your approach of defending TFI by ridiculing its critics instead of dealing with the real issues is typical of members/supporters/apologists of that corrupt cult.

Btw, I notice that instead of responding to my previous allegation that you are a Family member/supporter, you ignore it and continue to harp on the flee-fund non-issue. That confirms my suspicions because all of the exmembers I’m familiar with wouldn’t respond with silence to such an accusation, but would vehemently deny it. You, on the otherhand, continue to try to bait us into ignoring the real issue, which is TFI’s corruption. Why is that? Are you dependent on that corruption? Or if you are no longer a member, do you comfort yourself with the delusional fiction that TFI isn't a corrupt cult so you don't have to face the cold hard fact that you wasted your life living a lie in TFI?
