This is a publicity piece by one of Newman's cult members[edit]

There is no legitimate dispute about who and what Newman was, and the facts are grossly misportrayed in the article. A few examples:

--Newman was thrown out of the APA because of unethical conduct, in particular a pattern of having sexual relationships with "patients."

--The final paragraph says that Newman is survived by two women in an unconventional family. In reality, for the last 25 years of his life Newman lived with between three and five women at a time, occasionally replacing one with another. It seems in the endless competition for favor among them, two of those women have sought to delete the others while presenting Newman the situation as something other than what it obviously was, which is a cult leader with a harem.

--It is well-documented and well-established that while Newman et al. operated through innumerable different groups and organizations over time, appearing in different parts of the spectrum as the winds shifted, in reality there was a core group of individuals who ran each and every one with a consistent agenda. The organizations were either consciously designed as "fronts," (e.g., the New Alliance Party), or the group would try to co-opt organizations such as the Independence party that had some degree of existing mainstream acceptance. While the party line changed from day to day (what can be said about a group that aligns itself with Louis Farrakhan in the late 1980s and with Ross Perot in the 90s?) the underlying goal was consistent: to reorganize society around "group therapy" sessions run by Fred Newman.

--The inner core group was serviced by a middle-ring of devoted cult members who were used as, essentially, slaves, devoting their lives to menial tasks for the comfort for Newman and others without compensation or reward.

I could go on and one forever -- Newman's misconduct was the subject of a television documentary, several government investigations, numerous publications by former group members, and so forth.

This article was supposedly peer reviewed, but there's no record of any peer review in the wiki.
