Preamble

We all know about cults and the harms they can cause.

Emotions, health, money, career, attachments, reputation are all up for exploitation.

A managed collective of victims who are so entrenced they don’t realise, or don’t want to acknowledge, the scary truth they’re caught up in something they can’t leave. Made to believe they benefit from it, it’s become part of who they are

Over months that become years, they’re guided by narcissists to bond through manipulation techniques like rejection-acceptance, setback-success, information control, and into a community sharing their same special world.

A wise man proportions his belief to the evidence

David Hume, “An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding” (1748)

We have been too quiet for too long. There comes a time when you have to say something. You have to make a little noise.

Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble.

John Lewis

The weight of the evidence should be proportioned to the strangeness of the facts

Théodore Flournoy, “From India to the Planet Mars” (1899)

Let not any one pacify his conscience by the delusion that he can do no harm if he takes no part, and forms no opinion. Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing

John Stuart Mill
