Farokh spent over a decade developing the sentencing program,
including extensive searches for grants and donations. You think it's
easy to gets grants to pay for $2,500 TM fees? That's absurd. And
prior to this program, Farokh initiated thousands in horrifying
african prisons. There's no fiefdom or glory in his projects, either
within or outside the tmo. He does it out of personal conviction and
he knows from experience what it takes to make them work.
Meanwhile the raja-run recert program has succeeded in opening 1
Enlightenment Mall Store which is a total failure.
