Some time ago I wrote in general against multilevel marketing, saying that they tend to be dishonest because of the layers, and someone accused me of wanting to block other people's honest efforts to get ahead. This afternoon, I just thought of one of the main problems with this someone's idea. With MLMs, you are either being taken advantage of by others, or else you are taking advantage of other people, or perhaps both. Since perhaps only 1/6th of all the products marketed by MLMs are worth a crap, what I just said is 5/6ths of the way towards the truth end of the true/false continuum. Most of what MLMs are about are pyramid schemes. If it is OK with you to take advantage of other people, go right ahead. But watch out, you could be the one being taken advantage of. What you do to others is what happens to you, eventually.
