A set of beliefs based on mysticism brought to the forefront by a Jewish guy from Brooklyn who charges money for "enlightenment". One minute he's playing stickball with his buddies on Avenue C trying to figure out a good hustle the next minute he's the self-proclaimed Moses of Capitalism. Cha-ching. It's hard to believe that this guy is not a David Koresh-type con man because if he was a tool of the "creator" to spread "enlightenment" why would he charge money for it? I mean the guy sells his own bottled water, kind of like another egotistical jack-ass Donald Trump. I don't believe other prophets profited from their teachings. Furthermore the people who follow this guy could be classified as weak-minded and unstable with plenty of expendable income who need to be told that the are loved such as Madonna and that butter-face Lizzy Grubman.
con man = Michael Berg
stupid people w/ expendable income = sheep (see Madonna)
con man + sheep = Kabbalah
Kabbalah = con man w/ $$$$
con man w/ $$$$ = :) con man
