The Duggars were a household name at the end of the 2000s and the beginning of the 2010s, so it’s unlikely that you managed to escape hearing about them. The family was the focus of the reality TV series “19 Kids and Counting,” which followed the daily lives of the massive family for seven years starting in 2008. The Duggars were devoted Christians who refused to use birth control and homeschooled all of their kids.
Despite giving off the impression that they were a large happy family, it discovered that what was going on may have been considerably more sinister than it first appeared. When Josh, the family’s eldest son, admitted to the molestation of five girls and the show was canceled, the first fissures in the Duggars’ façade started to show.
Josh was detained in 2021 and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography, though he was never charged. A recent documentary claims that “19 Kids and Counting” is being run by even more sinister forces. The documentary “Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets” on Amazon Prime promises to reveal the “radical organization” known as the Institute in Basic Life Principles, which is said to have been the family’s primary source of wealth.
The official synopsis of the documentary states, “As details of the family and their scandals unfold, we realize they’re part of an insidious, much-larger threat already in motion, with democracy itself in peril.” The following information is about “Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets.”

Another insider claims, “They were playing the long game,” adding, “You offer these kids political participation training. You send them as interns from there to the White House and Congress.

Bill Gothard established the IBLP, a Christian organization, in 1961. According to its website, the group offers “clear institution and training on how to succeed by following God’s principles found in Scripture.” According to The New Republic, the group’s more radical policies include not allowing women to be financially independent or to reject their husbands’ emotions.
