The public needs to understand that the most dangerous and effective slavery groups are not the Jim Jones and David Koresh cults that are situated in compounds.
9/11 clearly shows the ultimate end result of blind following. The media and the law look at 9/11 as a product of and is associated with extremism, but missed the basic psychology behind it. It is the same psychology that permeate through the mind of every blind follower of a religious cult; which I'm sure, when given the same task, the end result will be equal to. There is no difference at all in among the followers of David Koresh, Jim Jones, Shoko Asahara, Marshall Applewhite or any followers of religious cults. The above leaders just happened to have gone too nuts to have commanded their followers to commit terror, Chris Butler and the likes have not. But what's stopping gurus like him to commit the same destructive act, or who could tell when these gurus will get totally nut out? The fact of the matter is, they share the same psychology that inspired extreme Islamist to commit 9/11. The act is the end result; the psychology is the catalyst. This is what I thought was missed big time in 9/11. Instead, sociologists and policy makers looked into established religions like Islam or extremist groups like the Aryan Brotherhood for signs, completely missing the less visible and more adaptive religious cults that operate fronts to misrepresent their agenda. Society would equate Osama Bin Laden with political leaders like Hitler and Saddam Hussein, but less so with religious cult leaders, let alone lesser known personalities like Chris Butler; when we get reminded of this reality, usually, it is too late. And as long as religious cults operate within the law or keep a low profile, it is fine and are even protected under the freedom of religion. The sad thing is, the victims are the most vulnerable people in society, most of the time, and that includes the children.
