QuoteupsidedownnewspaperI imagine even the most nefariously brainwashed would have to concede that in the end it was their own choice to act. Jonestown suiciders took their own lives. Suicide bombers pulled the pin. Short of kidnapping, long-term indoctrination, and threats, accountability would be meaningless. The initial brainwashing, in my opinion, often holds little to no choice fo

QuoteupsidedownnewspaperIrrespective of one's beliefs or not in brainwashing and mindcontrol, in order to at least combat the effects of a possible brainwashing and/or mind-control situation, one would have to assume oneself responsible for believing oneself brainwashed or mind controlled. I cannot figure out what you mean in that post. Maybe you can say the idea in a different way, and/or

Hi Zeets, Even though those guys are not interested in recruiting you, that doesn't mean that they are automatically not a destructive group (IE: "Cult"). This group potentially being considerable as destructive group, by definition, depends on whether or not anyone is being exploited or victimized by their activities, and/or whether or not "undue influence" is bei

This post edited for clarity and detail on June 9, 2006. Abusive Online Groups and Relationships: It's possible for people to be "brainwashed" over the internet. During my research on a certain dangerous religious group, a leading cult expert examined some of the text written by this group's leader and advised me that was written in a way that can create a hypnotic state

That's shitty. Sorry to hear that. Cult-like stuff can really limit and hurt people's lives. It sucks to have to be the one get close to someone, and then to watch that person's fantasies damage what could have been a great life.

I know nothing directly about this. However, I will point out: Quote from that web site: QuoteChanging subconscious beliefs that may be sabotaging well-intentioned actions is similar to reprogramming a personal computer. Using PSYCH-K techniques, a kind of "mental keyboard" to your own brain, you can increase "cross talk" between the two brain hemispheres, thereby achie

Nasty. My first thought was to share information about them with the local community. The web site above looks to have the kind of information you would want them to know.

My first thought is that as a former member, you already have a good deal of inside information that would not be available to someone who was just interested in beating up a randomly-selected destructive cult. You, yourself, may be the most well-suited person to researching and documenting them, as opposed with anyone you might find on this message board. Because you are a former member, you

A last update for this thread: Here is a fresh example of Warren's type of information manipulation. It's not too often that I know all of the circumstances behind something he is addressing, and this is one of those times. He posted this in his own message board, and I'll point out the manipulation as it appears: QuoteFrom: Community_Moderator Sent: 5/22/2006 10:13 PM

Christopher C. Warren has now pasted the full texts from Scientology magazine articles (Freedom Magazine) that drag exit counselors (and Rick Ross especially) through the dirt into his nccgcybercommunity message board. Some of the NCCG members are going to limit their field of trusted information about exit counselors to only the information presented in the NCCG message boards. Those NCCG mem

The group leader of the "NCCG" group in Sweden (documented at www.geocities.com/nccg_concern ) recently made a series of highly paranoid and ranting posts in his group messageboards. The group leader is making these posts in response to a specific incident. I did not see in any of the posts where the group leader explains this incident. There were a few indirect references to it, bu

A number of female NCCG members are in the process of relocating to the cult's compound in Sweden to become wives for the group's leader. The people who are relocating have been seen to hide what is going on from their families and friends, and could potentially represent the relocation as being employment-related.

IMO brainwashing most certainly exists, but there are different degrees of it. A basic definition of brainwashing, as I have come to understand it through my own experiences, is a systematic process by which a person's resistance to thinking in the way that is desired by the group is removed, using processes that simply work on humans because of humans' complicated psychological natu
