Every now and then in recent weeks I have been googling my own name to see when the NKT inevitably dish out further character assassination in an attempt to discredit my report. And finally I found this, an ENTIRE WEBSITE solely dedicated to this purpose.
‘Dr Robert Harrison’ who still does not disclose what he is a Dr of, or which institution he works for, claims that I was fired for gross misconduct. This a lie. I would have been given sick leave following his attack on me via my workplace (the day after my report on the NKT went viral), however as a contractor I do not get sick leave. I also would have been given a warning (not a full disciplinary) for sharing the email, which technically broke my workplaces data policy. However as a contractor, I get released from my contract instead of a warning. So, myself and my workplace mutually agreed a release from my contract due to stress. Stress, that of course, was caused by ‘Dr Robert Harrison’s sociopathic email (on top of the trauma of whistleblowing plus you know, recovering from involvement with a dangerous cult). A classic case of entrapment.
I particularly enjoy the bit of his post which states that his attorney has advised him not to engage with me and my ‘friends’. That did make me laugh! He uses DARVO (Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim and Offender) to suggest he was caused significant distress by me.
He also claims he does not have the time or inclination to examine my report in full (he only cares about my mental health, right?) yet he has checked out the report in great detail. In order to discredit it. Why would anyone do that if they were not a senior NKT member? He states he knew nothing about it, but I referred to the fact that I was writing it in my videos, which he stated he watched. So there is no way he could not know I was writing a psychological report on the NKT.
He also managed to find out the date of my father’s death and his age. Creepy, right? The team of stalkers behind him, who have been working behind the scenes as soon as they identified me as a threat, have done well. They couldnt work out my age though, because I was 17 when my father died, not 14.
In regards to the claims that I am mentally unstable, this is clearly a method for discrediting my report (see the section in my report on ‘Ad Hominem’ attacks). If he had genuine empathy, he would not disclose personal information about my mental health online in order to try to undermine my perception of reality (gaslighting) or to humiliate me, if I was already suffering. Trauma of any kind does not negate my view. Claiming people who write testimonies are too traumatised to be trusted is a cult classic. One would expect a recent survivor to have some trauma symptoms on board. He claims that I was not having therapy or taking responsibility for myself. This is a lie (how would he know about my therapy anyway?)
My report is not a research paper and I make that very clear throughout. It is basically a testimony with my psychological opinion alongside it plus some references. ‘Dr Robert Harrison’ claims that I should not be calling it a report. He won’t actually engage with me using his real name or as an obvious senior member of the NKT. But given they are obviously unhappy with my use of the word ‘report’ I don’t mind changing the title. Does anyone have any ideas? Something like ‘My opinion on the teachings of The New Kadampa Tradition, and potential psychological damage’ might fit better. It’s certainly a unique piece of writing so it’s difficult to know what to call it. I would like to adjust this ASAP but I am on holiday until mid September and don’t have a word editable version with me.
In regards to his claim that it’s not a quantitative study. That would not be possible, clearly. Who the hell is going to move in with the sole purpose of conducting a research study?
In regards to his claims of plaigairism. The first version was written quickly as I felt unsafe, like they could attack at any moment and I needed to get it finished. As a result I think I didn’t adequately check I had reworded all the chunks of text I had in my notes. When writing the second version I double checked for anything I might have accidentally plagiarized. I am happy to check this again now that I am more rested. My sincere apologies to anyone I may have quoted without quotation marks or a reference. It was not my intention. I might personally write to them to apologise. Except they don’t care, because it’s not a research paper or a book, it’s just a testimony based on my opinion, plus other people’s testimonies, plus some psychological theory.
Oh NKT you just continue to make this worse. Not only is this sociopathic, it’s actually stupid. It would have been a lot more intelligent to just issue a fake apology to anyone who ‘feels’ they have been harmed and write a fake safeguarding policy. Or at least to use your real name and not pretend you’re a Dr of nothing. But you can’t, because you know that then I could sue you for defamation
Update 03.08.19. Today I feel very sad about how the NKT members are being deceived by this narrative created by senior NKT via the fake persona ‘Dr Robert Harrison’. In the first few days of finding it I saw it mainly as an attack on my reputation. But now, I am more aware that really their main priority is to keep people on the inside from the truth. And that is really heartbreaking. They are being deceived on so many levels. The NKT claim they don’t keep people captive, but what is this if not captivity amongst a bunch of fake personas and lies?
