Regarding the "decision to join a cult", I hope that people will take the time to read and listen to the experts on this Cult Education Institute. Here is a link to a video by Rick Ross that discusses the question, "Is Joining A Cult a Personal Choice?" [youtu.be
Victim blaming does little to further the healing process for all. Look at the research on "mind control" on this website. We are in a unique moment in time when members and former members are having their eyes opened. I find it much more beneficial to read the research and put the blame squarely on the perpetrators of this evil. They need to be held accountable for the crimes and violations carried out against a multi-generational group of victims. Follow the money.
