Thread Name: BS: What do you think cults have in common?
Subject: RE: BS: What do you think cults have in common?
I don't have, or watch, television in the residence
where I am living presently.
But the paper is delivered, and in today's
New York Times
there was a review of "The Vow,"
a multi-episode documentary series on this dreadful "Nxivm" thing
(that was the official spelling).
One of its top, er, manipulators is now in prison.

Did anyone else read the NYT review -- or, better,
is anybody watching this thing on prime-time television?
The review observes that the cult leader appears utterly ludicrous,
and yet attracted all these people, and all this money,
and got away with heinous things.
