Re: “I am Annoyed and Disappointed

I respect that the cafe's intent is to have pure food, and highlight 'enlightenment,' BUT...

AN EMPLOYEE HAS THE RIGHT TO DECIDE IF THEY WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN LANDMARK OR OTHER SUCH IDEOLOGIES. IT SHOULD NOT AFFECT THEIR JOB! THAT IS CLEARLY ILLEGAL AND IMMORAL.

NO ONE SHOULD BE FORCED, COERCED, OR PRESSURED INTO ANY RELIGIOUS OR MIND EXPANSION PROGRAM.
NO ONE SHOULD HAVE THEIR JOB/ POSITION DEGRADED DUE TO NON-PARTICIPATION OR QUESTIONING MANAGEMENT. WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE A COUNTRY BASED ON FREE-WILL.

THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE GUTS TO SPEAK UP ARE THE HEROES OF FREE CHOICE AND FREE SPEECH, AND I COMMEND THEM. This is what the Cafe should be about, and reward them for being free-thinkers and strong to their own truths.

WHAT CAFE GRATITUDE IS DOING IS ILLEGAL. NO MATTER IF THEY SEE LANDMARK AS BENEFICIAL OR NOT, THEY HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO FORCE AND PUSH THEIR EMPLOYEES TO FOLLOW THEIR BELIEFS. IT IS JUST WRONG, PLAIN AND SIMPLE.

Re: “I am Annoyed and Disappointed

I strongly commend and support the present and previous employees, along with Ms. Ritter, who have the strength and courage to voice their right to choose participation in Landmark Forum or not. It is sad that some of the employees had to speak in anonymity, out of fear of being penalized. It is an outrage (and illegal) to be forced or pressured to attend Landmark or any other program, and should not have a bearing on keeping ones job or being promoted from within their company.

Our country was founded on the principal of free will and to respect each others beliefs. I experienced EST many years ago, which Landmark evolved from. It was very controversial and there can be an element of 'brainwashing' to it's philosophy, or, it can be insightful for some, HOWEVER, IT SHOULD BE AN INDIVIDUAL CHOICE. It is ironic that a company that spouts their belief in self-growth does not allow for a person's individual freedom to choose. I choose not to support a company who does business in this manner. Thank you for exposing the raw truth about this raw food restaurant. They should have seen it coming...
