Many of these people were not even Over de Lindes, yet they actively supported the hoax to create this glorious past for the Oera Lindas, or for Friesland, or whatever and, they had no profit motive.
Oh, and before I forget, they were all, what we would call today, working class or blue collared workers and yet, they worked hand in glove with brilliant guys like Dr. Halbertsma. What makes their feat even more remarkable is that nobody could ever crack this extended band of cheats or, shall we say, this brotherhood. Not a single one ever leaked a word of this conspiracy. They even fooled the best linguist in the Netherlands of the time - Dr. Ottema. Truly remarkable!
Of course, we do not have any evidence of this but, who cares? It makes perfect sense.
You are talking about members of the family, and about their enemies who heard them boast about their past.
This is not about a 'brotherhood', this is about nothing but a big fat family-lie.
I am not too ashamed to tell you I have experienced something similar with my own familiy.
