Reflections of an 11-year-old boy rediscovered at 61 by Mitch Santell.
It is when you realize that the land of your birth may be a national cult that you start to question your dreams and visions.
In 1968 as an 11-year-old boy, I had a neighbor in the same building as my Aunt and Grandmother in Los Angeles who’s granddaughter was rescued from a cult in New York City. As a kid, I kept scratching my head thinking “Julie is in a cult? How can that be, she is about the same age as me?”
Now as I fast forward to August of 2018, I see cults all around me and observe the sincere cloning off of humanity placed merely into a maze of thought that may not even be their own.
Cults know that if they can control your relationships then they can control you. Whether we like it or not we are all profoundly affected by those around us. When you first go to a cult they will practice “love bombing”, where they arrange instant friends for you. It will seem wonderful, how could such a loving group be wrong! But you soon learn that if you ever disagree with them, or ever leave the cult then you will lose all your new “friends”. This unspoken threat influences your actions in the cult. Things that normally would have made you complain will pass by silently because you don’t want to be ostracized. Like in an unhealthy relationship love is turned on and off to control.
Cults also try to cut you off from your friends and family because they hate others being able to influence you. A mind control cult will seek to manoeuvre your life so as to maximize your contact with cult members and minimize your contact with people outside the group, especially those who oppose your involvement.
