What a racket.
Racket being defined as "an illegal or dishonest scheme for obtaining money".
Sad that people still buy into this as it's such a load of bullshit sold by a man with more charisma than imagination.

There is an execrable music video from 1990 if you're a sucker for musical/lyrical/mental torture. I won't post it. Go look if you want. I didn't send ya.

I read the book, and saw the movie on Sunday. Cults and crazy religions is one of my favourite subjects.

On a lighter note, I saw this one yesterday:

I've seen Going Clear a few times. Most of the time I can understand and respect what is appealing about someone's religion but I just don't get what people see in Scientology at all. Hired Gun looks interesting!

On the surface, it's just like any other religion. It lures you in with stories of happiness and making a better life for yourself (unless you're born into it, then you're just screwed unless you can gain enough insight and education to find your way out). Their Nirvana is being "clear", the Mormons have their Celestial level of heaven, the Muslims have virgins, etc etc.

Started watching Wild, Wild Country on Netflix.  Check it out.  I can't believe I don't recall this story about followers of and Indian "prophet" who started a community in Oregon in the 1980's.  It is a wild story.

I remember Jim Jones and other big "cult" stories and I am not sure why I have no recollection of this one?  It obviously got a lot of mainstream media coverage at the time.

Good one, getting a bit of play on the two PBS stations I get.  For I while so was "Charlie Is My Darling", of the Stones' tour of Ireland September 1965.
