Well, it would seem the NCD folk are pretty straightforward about their method. This is from the Color Your World home page
"Whenever someone argues that he or she is 'against NCD,' I deliberately respond in this way: 'OK, let's take a look at the individual NCD principles. One
of them is loving relationships. If you are against it, you probably are in favor of hatred in your church. I have a number of ideas how to cultivate hatred that I would love to share with you. Another principle is passionate spirituality. If you are against it, you might be interested in boring spirituality. I can assure you that, as a German, I am very experienced in boring spirituality. I would be delighted to help you put it into practice.' In a similar way, I go through all of the NCD principles. After a while, everyone agrees that you really cannot take a general position against NCD." http://coloryourworld.org/welcome/
