I think there can be shills

who are in denial of knowing, which isn’t quite the same thing. They can be told, on the qt, “hey, we KNOW you’re doing great, and we want to make you a STAR so you can inspire others–and in the process people will gravitate to YOU, so how about we tell people you’re doing a little better than you are YET, cause we BOTh know you WILL be soon, right? Oh, and hey, let’s get you a new suit to show your success, or can we help with a car?
See what I mean? I don’t think that anyone can be a blameless shill who doesn’t really KNOW how much actual product he and his org. are moving—after all, the checks and statements are there. And frankly, no marketing would just pick people at random to do this with–they’d need compliant “team player” types who’d go along. SO are they unknowing? I doubt it, though others here may disagree. But are they are prefering “not to know” and in denial of their complicity in the fraud, just believing or convincing themselves that they believe, that its how the game is played by the “pros” who are their “mentors”? That’s more likely to me….and maybe no less forgivable in the long run when you assess the damage it does to the people conned by it.
