Ten years ago, when i was in NS there was huge MLM craze. I think it is still probably there. One of my sec sch classmate insisted that MLM is legitimate and he joined it. As a good friend, i decided to talk him out of it while we were at another friend house.
He insisted that he was right and punched me. He eventually realised his folly as he lost his hard earned money being told to repeatedly buy inventory that couldnt sell. He started working at fast food resturant from sec 2 onwards, and waited at the occasional banquets, so had a considerable savings.
Well ten years later our clique still meet up. Moral of the story: MLM as a plague will haunt generations of NSFs. MLM feeds on hope! People survive on hope and will not voluntarily leave it till they have one room full of health products, magnetic bracelets, or pills with which you can get a fraction of the price at guardian or watson, and zero savings.
Tldr: To avoid getting punch in the face, dont intervene too much! But if you are a good friend, take that punch!
