Mark is trying to sell books. Lupe Hunter probably doesn't give a s**t about Mark Curry or maisntream so how can he be manipulated?
It's lik Skeleton Key when Caroline dumbass put that brick dust on the ground in a circle because she was manipulated into believing it was real but it only ended up consuming her life.
I bet you'd do the same thing if someone said mankind will be consumed by demons an if you put on a set of angel wings and put glitter on your doorstep you'll be safe..
People always use that cop-out explanation for people trying to tell the truth about s**t. There have been so many people spreading the truth about things who barely ever made a dime from it... and even if someone did make a dime from spreading their information, so what? People gotta eat, whether you like it or not people need money to survive in this society...
I bet you're the same type of person who would say it's alright for governments to put video cameras in people's homes because "as long as you ain't doing anything wrong you shouldn't have anything to hide." lol, right? is that your kind of logic?
