Some recent posts have suggested tapping into the psychological traits that 
provide the kind of dedication to a cause you see in cults.

As most of you know, I have a low opinion of the idea.  This is probably 
the result of my interactions with the scientology cult.  Those made me a 
refugee for 4 1/2 years and now I am in a worse situation.  However, there 
is a bright side.

Scientology coming unglued at the top.


Coupled with the revelation of "blownforgood" the situation is looking 
better every day.

But if someone *really* wants to go into cult mode, this is practically an 
instruction manual.  (They never bothered to replace the bag when my trash 
was stolen.)
