Having gone through three years of intensive Freudian analysis in the early 80s I can see how cults like Scientology and EST and LifeSpring copied much from standard psychoanalysis, then tweaked it a bit and renamed it something else. Having studied how our own government has used various techniques of outright torture, especially in regard to the Orwellian War of Terror , I can see how cults copy those techniques and refine them a bit. This is all for the same heinous purpose: Control . Having also spent over half my adult life studying the entire Nazi movement right through WW2, I can see how much of what Hitler’s gang did with their mass rallies and pomp and circumstance has been mirrored by cults like Scientology. Seeing the leaders of this cult and its top executives dressed in uniforms that resemble those worn by movie ushers from the 30s and 40s, one has to laugh at the audaciousness of it all. Yet, it is real! Thousands attend these spectacles and cheer and applaud… just like those fools did in 1930s Germany! How about the overflowing crowds who follow the so called Televangelist preachers and send their hard earned savings for ‘ Prayer cloths ‘ and other nonsense?
Now, allow me to go one step further. In one year from now we will have our next Presidential Horserace . Check out the conventions they hold for these two major political parties. You will then realize why cults like Scientology have been so successful. To this writer the two party system here in our dear America has been the longest lasting cult in our nation’s history. As with the inane British ‘ Tory vs. Labor ‘ con job, our own ‘ Republican vs. Democrat’ garbage has for so long scammed so many good, decent Americans. Do the research and see how the really key issues and policy decisions that keep this Military Industrial Empire going full speed always have the consensus of the two parties. It has to… or the wizards behind the curtain would do some pruning to make certain of it. Cults, any and all… SUCK! Isn’t it time for more Americans to ‘ connect the dots ‘ ?
