I find it hard to believe Mr. Johnson. Why? Because the man doesn't have a single good thing to say about anyone or anything associated with Alcor at any point in his association with the organization (save for one engineer.) Normally in a whistle blower memoir we're introduced to someone who goes through stages. First they are a stalwart member of their organization (maybe a little naive but a believer nonetheless.) Then a hint of trouble arises. Then the trouble gets larger. Finally, near the apex of the story, we discover that all is definitely not well and the whistle blower wrestles with the moral obligation to bring down their associates.
From the beginning of this book, even before Mr. Johnson accepts Alcor's offer of employment, he makes the organization out to be a gaggle of physical freaks and comical caricatures. The office is filthy. The employees all look sickly and behave neurotically. There's dangerous, possibly illegal stuff in the supply cabinet that shouldn't be there. Red flags abound. Yet Mr Johnson signs on anyway. Why? So he can get away from his burn-out gig as a Vegas paramedic and live closer to his dad. Really?
Mr. Johnson is clearly a man with a long resume who would be sought after for his medical experience in a wide variety of fields. Why does he go to work for Alcor even after an interview he seems to equate with a visit to a mental ward? Why go to work for this gaggle of freaks who appear to have skeletons in their closet and red flags around every corner just so he can move to be near his dad?Read more ›
Do I believe that some of it is true? absolutely. Why else would Alcor get a court order against Mr. Johnson prohibiting him from releasing any additional information. Obviously he has information that can hurt Alcor and he has proof to back at least some of it up. This, combined with his poor choices, is one of the reasons why I am beginning to have my doubts about some of his accusations. The fact that Mr Johnson has real info that hurts alcor gives him the ability to make things up and it gives people a reason for believing such statements after all if he is telling the truth on statement A, why shouldn't we believe him on statement B?Read more ›
