NXIVM sex cult is still alive and active – will they ever be stopped?
Coverage of the NXIVM scandal in the mainstream media has primarily taken the angle that the minor celebrity, Allison Mack best known for her recurring appearances on the teen drama Smallville was involved in a supposed ‘sex cult’.
This coverage has come under criticism by some who believe that the media are missing a much deeper story relating to the price of justice in the United States.
The media have covered the arrest of the leader of the so-called cult Keith Rainiere and Allison Mack who was alleged to be his deputy.
Much of the coverage has focussed on the fact that the sex cult branded women and promised them ‘executive success’ if they paid astronomical fees to the cult leaders.
However, Mack and Raniere have not only be charged for this exploitation and abuse but also with the sex trafficking of children, something which campaigners have noted has glanced over in most reports of the scandal.
Sex Cult Not Only Exploits Grown Women but Also Children
In addition, much of the emphasis on the criminal conspiracy has focussed on Mack.
It appears that the crimes involved a much larger circle than the media coverage has suggested.
In addition to Mack, it appears that the cult may have involved a number of influential individuals with a great deal more power than those who have since been arrested.
It has been alleged that the sex cult which not only exploits grown women but also children is still active today under the leadership of a woman named Clare Bronfman, the heiress of Seagram’s liquor.
It has been suggested that Bronfman has a long history of serious criminal activities which have never been properly investigated or led to convictions due to her enormous wealth and her extensive connections with many of America’s most powerful individuals, including the Rothschild family.
As has been proved in the past year, money and influence can allow powerful and wealthy individuals such as Harvey Weinstein to avoid taking accountability for their prolific sexual crimes.
While many people are now hopeful that the sea change in American society has meant that avoiding justice in the future will be more difficult it seems that there is still a long way to go.
