Stories of the harm of cyber-bullying, trolling and cyber-stalking are increasingly common. The anonymity of the online environment harbours the perpetrators where they are able to harrass and bully others without constraint, largely avoiding legal repercussions, until that day comes to their door.
Anyone can open up a web page and write what ever they want. And write what ever they want they do. The online environment allows those with a grudge, those who simply take pleasure at causing harm to others and those who are simply unhinged, to post malicious or provocative material online with the sole purpose of harming their targets through threats, repeated harassment or the dissemination of false accusations and defamatory material.
Since mid 2012 Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine and those associated with them have been targeted by cyber-bullies. Like all cyber-bullies some hold a grudge, some appear to take pleasure in the harm they cause and others simply appear to be unhinged. The nature of the attacks have been extreme, disgusting and disturbing; a factor that very clearly exposes the real character and mental state of those concerned.
The cyber-bullies have falsely labelled Universal Medicine as a ‘cult’ and Serge Benhayon as a ‘dangerous cult leader’. With no apparent limit to the abhorrent lies concocted they have made accusations of paedophilia, sexual molestation, sexual grooming and sexual abuse and have used anonymity to provide a cloak to avoid responsibility for the lies told. Words like ‘sexual predatory behaviour’, ‘sexual groomer’, ‘dangerous cult’ etc are easily typed out and published online in relation to anyone’s name with no regard to the lies being perpetrated.
It is doubtful that the cyber-bullies would be so virulent in the lies and vicious personal attacks were their own names attached to their posts for the world, including their families, clients and business associates, to see.
Here we present the truth about the cyber-bullies and internet trolls – Esther Rockett, Lance Martin, Robert Macindoe and others. Here we tell our stories. We present the truth to counter the lies spread by these cyberbullies.
We present the FACTS ABOUT UNIVERSAL MEDICINE.
A truly noble person and someone who shines with integrity in all they say and do is a rare thing in this world. I have not had an absence of such people in my life – my own father is a man of deep integrity from whom I learnt the importance of standing up for what you know is true, even if the whole world appears to be taking a different stance. But generally in life those that walk their talk is rare.
I dedicate my time to working on the Universal Medicine Facts website because the truth is something that I hold very dear to me. In 2012, I was given a huge wakeup call as to the level of corruption and abuse that was possible at the hands of the Media Industry, and through the use of the Internet. I saw the harm that could be wielded online by anonymous sources using multiple pseudonyms to write lies and defamatory content about others…
It won’t be hard for anyone to imagine living a life that has its ups and more than plenty of downs. This is a way of living that probably every single human relates to and that we as a human race have come to accept as ‘the norm’. Living the so called norm in my case became too painful to keep pretending it was OK – so much so that I travelled the world to look for a different way. For many years I did all this with no success because the sorrows and short lived tribulations follow you like a puppy dog – by no means cute but rather irritating.

When I first met the man that was to be my future father-in-law, I was only 10 years old and living in a world that seems so far away to the one I am living in now – at the time, my parents had become close friends with Serge and Deborah Benhayon and often traveled up the coast from where we lived to attend some of Serge’s early workshops and sessions. During my years growing up – I was lost, uncommitted to life, and unsure of myself, as most of what I had experienced in life had been ‘normal’ but always falling short of what I felt inside to be true.
I was raised in a small country town amongst a large extended family. There were many values that were impressed upon me and one of those that seemed to keep playing out was, ‘telling the truth’. It was important in our family and in the beautiful town I lived. People, neighbours and the community as a whole held the truth in high regard. People that were known for ‘telling the truth’ were trusted and looked upon as leaders. I lived in a family that worked hard, were part of the community and were trusted. This didn’t come from a name but came from a constant way of ‘doing the right thing by people’ and not sacrificing what they knew to be true.
