If I had seen a long thread like this about Stace Barron and Brie Barron before I got involved with him, it might have steered me away.
Even if people choose to participate after reading online survivor descriptions of
abuse perpetrated by a leader and group, they still stand to benefit.
Because reading online reports of abuse by the leader and group prior to joining will give participants an idea of what to watch out for.
When they run into the same abuses they read in the online warnings, they
will know they're not alone, they are not imagining it.
And -- they will escape that much sooner.
Even if you have done online research and read abuse reports before you\
decide to risk it and join the group they've warned about, you are still at
I spent years in a cultic relationship (no relation to Barron). I was given
4 or 5 clear warnings. It was as though God was bellowing from the clouds
warning me away.
But I was in such bad shape and this guru type gave me so much help and hope
and was recommended by my dearest friend that I found ways to discount all these warnings. I even forgot I had the option to get a second opinion.
It was not that I was dumb. It was because I was a human being who'd been
hit by several tragedies and life changes all at once. The primitive mammalian
part of my brain bonded with the source of immediate relief. My intelligence
was hostage to all this and busied itself writing off and discounting all
those clear warnings.
So please take it seriously if you find warnings online about a group and
the warnings are from many sources, all share similarities, and have been
published over a period of time. Even if you've read all those warnings,
you may, if you go to "check out" the group, be subjected to powerfully
effective seduction techniques that throw your brain chemistry totally
out of whack.
Remember, people who spend years leading a cult have years of experience
manipulating people, just as an old cowboy knows all about lassoing and breaking horses.
In the early stages, you may have such a blissful and seemingly transformative
time in the group that you'll convince yourself that the survivor warnings
were written by malcontents, or that all this happened in the past and that
things are now different.
What if you fall in love and get involved with someone in the group?
Once you're in a relationship, its harder to leave. If you have children,
you're massively stuck. Many people who no longer believe in a cult live in silence because their spouse still believes, they have children and the non believing spouse cannot afford to pay for child custody litigation in case of a divorce.
