Eight DOS ‘Slaves’ Defend Secret Sorority, Nxivm and Keith Raniere
The DOSsier Project [thedossierproject.com] is now live with brand new articles defending DOS, the once-secret sorority, headed by a man, Keith Raniere, the founder of NXIVM.
Raniere is now serving a 120-year sentence at USP Tucson.
Eight former DOS women founded the Dossier website and seek to combat the negative view of their sorority and show that it was a legitimate effort to improve women’s lives through, as they explain, the kind of discipline and adherence to keeping one’s word that is normally only expected of men.
The DOS women allot to me a fair amount of blame for the destruction of DOS, along with Sarah Edmondson, a whistleblower, who told me that she was a DOS slave and was branded.
On June 5, 2017, on Frank Report, I broke the story of DOS, in a series of articles beginning with Part 1: Branded Slaves and Master Raniere; Sources: Human branding part of Raniere-inspired women’s group.
In the stories, I reported the use of their terminology of “master” and “slave,” the practice of branding slaves with the initials of Keith Raniere on the women’s groins, and keeping collateral, essentially information and nude photographs of each woman which they would not want released to the public, family or friends. The collateral was provided by each slave as a condition of membership in DOS to ensure their keeping the sorority secret.
For good or ill, there is ample evidence that the DOS women are telling the truth, insofar as that I had a hand in the destruction of DOS. See Media Comments and Comments About My Role.
While I can respect the position of Nicki Clyne and the other seven women of the Dossier Project in that their intentions are good, that they wanted to help themselves and other women, the overall DOS scheme, especially the collection of collateral, was bound to cause some women to be victims. It was an impossible scheme and profoundly stupid to think that the wholesale collection of collateral, essentially blackmail-worthy material, could keep more than 100 women from revealing DOS’ existence. And they planned to recruit thousands of women.
I deeply sympathize with the women who felt they were victims and I think that the eight DOS women who still support Keith Raniere, the true author of the DOS scheme, are misguided in their faith in Raniere. Yet I support their decision to speak out and defend their actions and even the actions of their master, Raniere.
The eight women still supporting DOS are:
