Jack Campin BS: What do you think cults have in common? (106* d) RE: BS: What do you think cults have in common? 07 Sep 20


The development of the People's Temple doesn't fit the demoniac stereotype if you look a bit more into it. They were unquestionably a force for good during much of their time in the US, and it isn't at all clear to what extent they jumped or were pushed at the end. American capitalism doesn't like people setting up in competition to its ideology, and labelling those who want to do something different as "cults" or "dictatorships" is SOP. Hence what they did to Libya and are trying to do to Venezuela.
