    I was excited to see this last night!!! Oliver covered pretty much everything except the cult tactics that MLMs use (information control, love bombing, etc.). My favorite part was when he described the reason that dubious MLMs don’t get shut down- because the Direct Selling Association puts so much time and money into lobbying, and that some of the people in the DSA used to work for the FTC!!
