First of all, many consider Scientology, the Moonies and other notorious organizations are cults. But what organizations are lying in the weeds?
Based on the NXIVM trial, and now a current investigation into OneTaste:
…are there any other organizations out there that should be investigated as a cult?
The similarities between NXIVM and One Taste are uncanny:
-Lead by charismatic individuals bestowed an almost godlike status
-Multi-marketing elements, with financial pressures on members to invest
-Creepy sexual agendas
-Pressure and overwork of organization members to recruit
-Curriculum that attempts to reorganize the thinking of recruits, and make them dependent upon it
There’s other red flags I know I am missing but I think I captured the worst of them.
So what other organizations out there that you think are secretly not widely identified as cults?
