Andrew divides people into two groups regarding Jimmy Savile:
1) Those who thought he was wonderful and did not see his dark side
2) Those who saw his dark side and chose to support him, because they supposedly shared his manipulative nature and were indifferent to human suffering.
Andrew then invites us to decide which group we belong to.This seems to be very black and white thinking, and I am not sure if it is quite this simplistic.
I for one did not know about his dark side but I did not think JS was wonderful. I thought he was a prat with a very strange energy.
Many people saw and experienced his dark side but did not choose to support him. Apparently, many complaints about him were dismissed at the time. Others did not complain because they did not think they would be believed. Those in a position to act failed to do so, not necessarily due to being manipulative and indifferent to suffering. Perhaps they found it hard to believe, perhaps they thought the victims were exaggerating. Who knows. And it could be argued that much of this happened in a different era with much less awareness.
But comparing JS with JY is really a red herring, and I question the value of Andrew's persistence in comparing the two.
JY persuaded a number of foolish women to take their clothes off and play with his todger. He told at least one that her husband would die and they could then get married. He may or may not have abused two girls. I was around when these accusations were being made, and I could never decide if they were factual (I suspect that they were) or just one of the many rumours circulating at that time. Yes, he abused his position (after all, he was the Master of the Universe), but the adult women involved have to accept some responsibility.
The adepts around JY were in a strange position. On the one hand, they realised that their supreme guru was this rather unpleasant man with some peculiar habits, on the other hand they fully believed that their spiritual enightenment was due to this same man. If they revealed what they knew then the path would end and the disciples would be denied their chance of enlightenment. Therefore they kept quiet (although two chose to leave rather than remain a part of this). I know at least one adept who went on holiday with JY (and others) for a couple of weeks and grew to hate him. He did not try anything with her, but she simply saw what an unpleasant person he was. It wasn't until the adepts finally got round to comparing notes and experiences that they realised that the problem was too big to ignore.
I do agree that JY's infamy is restricted because he is a relative nonentity (although there are a couple of books on Western spirituality in which he gets a mention). But unless something dramatic happens he will end up as no more than a footnote in the history of 20th century spirituality. We lesser mortals will not even merit that.
