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.

Requiem for a follower

[ed. - This mysterious post was left on the Fellowship of Friends Discussion's "About" page. It's subject, someone who apparently turned their back on family to follow Robert Burton, remains unidentified.]

"Barbara Haider" wrote on the Fellowship of Friends Discussion, December 16, 2007:
Intelligent yet irrelevant. Thought dueling to avoid decisions made alone, unscripted unbounded by group directive. If only I had walked into your lavish social setting and found IT. It’s only life you escape while pretending consciousness. Surrounded, protected, inner circle of knowing the cues, the winks the nods, of being part of IT. I’m alone in the morgue with my brother, food for the moon. You didn’t listen to me cry. The romance of jade mines and jaunts, to higher sexual forces that were ground out in hot, gritty bus seats. A superior man will not be recognized in his own country. Your vanity expanded so huge that no former informer would be left to comment on YOU. The superior man who turned his back on me, on his friends, on his family because the Fellowship of Friends awaited. The intelligent yet irrelevant rant on this website doesn’t ever discuss the agony the Fellowship of Friends imposes on the dead.
