Introduction


Presented in reverse chronology, this history stretches from the present back to the Fellowship's 1970 founding, and beyond.
(See "Blog Archive" in the sidebar below.) It draws from many sources, including The Fellowship of Friends - Living Presence Discussion, the Internet Archive, the former Fellowship of Friends wiki project, cult education and awareness sites, news archives, and from the editor's own 13-year experience in the Fellowship.

The portrait that emerges stands in stark contrast to sanitized versions presented on the Fellowship's array of
alluring websites, and on derivative sites created by Burton's now-estranged
disciple, Asaf Braverman.

[ed. - Quotes from "The Teacher," Robert Burton from this time period, with apparent index numbers shown:]

Women have made large gains; It is one of our aims to protect these advances in our new civilization. (021582.95)

I expect not to be martyred, but to die a passive death. I will have eight years after the destruction of humanity to assist in rebuilding a civilization. I am immortal, and death does not exist for me. (021582.99)

When my task is complete I will continue to work with our school, and communicate to my students the wishes of higher forces for our new civilization. (021582.911)

From the Fellowship of Friends Wiki Page:

[ed. - Thoughts from "The Teacher," Robert Burton, with apparent index number shown.]
Some paintings do not deserve a place on the wall. One goes from the Dutch section of t he Metropolitan Museum in New York to the section for modern art and one sees how people have spent millions for a building so they can put insanity on the wall. Kenneth Clark asked, ‘What will men of the future think when they look at our art?’ What they will then understand is what men are like when they have lost their minds and are expunged by higher forces. Plato said the affairs of the citizens of Atlantis had reached a pitiable position before they were destroyed. (020182.611)

All the cities of the world are on the same time now: they all have twenty four years left before Armageddon occurs in 2006. (021582.91)

The United Sates is a brilliant nation, but it will never grow old as a nation. It will die a young death, like Mozart. (021582.92)
