· H. Spencer Lewis was able to gain the public’s trust and boost his intellectual and scientific platform by posing as a public watchdog for subliminal messages, all the while seeking to administer his own mind control program
· Lewis used questionable cosmology and science to shape himself into the image of God
· Lewis explained his doctrine of reincarnation through a lame, fictional story of early man

This compelling exploration examines the dangers of brainwashing and how one individual has been able to exude power over others through his writings and methodologies.
Never before has anyone challenged AMORC and its founder’s works so directly.
Daring to Speak of Darkness is a review of anticult literature by cult whistleblower Pierre S. Freeman. Freeman was trapped in the religious cult, AMORC, for twenty-six years. As a poor immigrant with most of his family still living in Haiti, Freeman could not afford professional counseling and was alone in his battle to break free from AMORC.
Desperately torn when he discovered the French government had labeled AMORC a cult, Freeman began searching the Internet for help. He found a group of authors who had written lucid, clear anticult literature. By reading their works, Freeman was able to slowly and painfully piece together the main cause of his lack of clarity: for decades he had been subject to covert mind control.Daring to Speak of Darkness pays homage to Margaret Thaler Singer and Stephen Hassan, as well as other writers like Janja Lalich, Robert Jay Lifton, and Madeline Tobias. It reviews some of the world’s best anticult literature and applies their insights to AMORC. The book also highlights principles of indoctrination that cults of all kinds use. The authors of these anticult books risked much to take on powerful organizations and stop the tyranny of cult activities, including harassment, verbal and potential physical abuse, and even their own lives. They are truly those who dared to speak of darkness.
