Summary
People are drawn to cults for a number of reasons, but commonly they attract people whose current religion or lifestyle is lacking - it's too restrictive, it's not restrictive and holy enough, it doesn't seem to offer solutions for a chaotic and dangerous world, it doesn't let them have enough sex with aliens. Whatever the drawcard, once people are in, it's usually very difficult for them to leave. Imagine someone telling you you couldn't use your phone any more. You'd definitely survive, and there would even be some benefits, but you'd feel lost and disconnected. If in order to keep your phone you were told you'd have to give up chocolate and endure one punch to the face every day, you might seriously consider it. People undergo a lot of loopy and dangerous stuff in order to maintain their lifeline to their cult, which makes them feel secure, or at the very least terrified of the outside world. From the JONESTOWN cult Kool-Aid drinkers to the Australian cult THE FAMILY to THE BRANCH DAVIDIANS this is book is a wide-sweeping look at cults around the world based on the popular podcast ZEALOT
