DSA pretends that "product-based pyramid scheme" doesn't exist, by pushing multiple narratives which are myths, not reality:
- MYTH: "Internal consumption is legitimate"
REALITY: Internal consumption is legitimate... only in "reasonable" amounts, else it is indistinguishable from product-based pyramid scheme
- MYTH: "There is a CLEAR divide between pyramid scheme and MLM"
REALITY: "Product-based pyramid scheme" is VERY close to MLM and this clear divide no longer exist. It's one huge gray area.
- MYTH: "Pyramid schemes rarely involve products. If they do, they aren't worth much."
REALITY: "Product-based pyramid schemes involve actual 'legitimate' MLM type products."
Let us go over each myth on why each is a myth, and what is the reality.
