When we reflect back on all the fads we went through over the decades, be they Elijah/Elisha-Paul/Timothy 'arrangements', communal homes, food fads, Franklin Planners, Country/Western dancing, Bible software, 4th of July and Xmas truck, etc. (feel free to fill in what I'm forgetting), some were 'scripturally based', but many were not. Top that off with trying NOT to be religious through copious amounts of alcohol seasoned with foul language, and you have the recipe for an 'alternate reality' indeed.
I am not quite sure if all cult-leaders go to CULT UNIVERSITY to learn all these techniques. In some sense, I don't believe TLW in either the JRS or the G&M era were all that sophisticated.
