From the outside, Destructive Cults can seem wonderful and very appealing. They promise to help you fulfill your dreams and ambitions and offer you: ‘The Secrets to Self-Improvement’
‘Join our Mission to Save the World’
‘Gain Special Powers’ along with many others.
But dig beneath the surface and you will discover a sinister world of Lies and Deception where Mind Control and Psychological Coercion are skillfully and subtly used to recruit, indoctrinate and control Cult members.
Destructive Cults all share some of the following characteristics:
Cults use Mind Control to recruit and control members
Cults use Lies and Deception to recruit and will distort or omit information about their true purpose
Cults are Elitist Authoritarian Regimes with a Self Appointed Charismatic Leader accountable to no one
Cults have set up hundreds of Front Groups like ‘Management Courses’ ‘Meditation Centres’ ‘Bible Study Groups’ ‘World Peace Organisations’ ‘Personal Development Centres’ etc.
Cults are focused on Making Money (usually from their members) and Recruiting new members
As well as Religious Cults there are also Psychotherapy Cults, Commercial Cults and Political Cults and some Cults that have numerous front organisations are involved in all of these areas.
