I get it... I'm always confused by Edmund going "there are no paragraphs" when there are loads there, but perhaps he also means that he wants an empty line between two paragraphs.I generally don't read huge blocks of text with no line breaks but I am sure Rich is makng some good points.
Although I think there is more to it here. Not all types of cults are the same and not all escapes and ways of deprogramming are the same and not all attempts to drag someone back in are the equivalent either, so.... I guess I am saying that although it can often be useful to notice the similarities between two cults etc and this can be useful to infer that one thing that applies to cult A might well apply to cult B, one shouldn't take that as gospel and, one should think carefully about which bits of the original structures are the same and which differ and so on and this may help you on understanding which things about one can teach you about the other and which are less useful. Obvious perhaps but when you think you're on a roll and up to your neck in the debate making great analogies and devastating points all over the place, it's easy to forget to step back and take stock and consider whether the bit you're on about is really applicable and can be transferred to make the point that you want it to.In other words I am not convinced by the idea that identifying and recognising one lie and knowing fully that it is a lie protects you in the future from being fooled again by that very same lie. Which is depressing.
I'm surprised WYH hasn't mentioned Mel Lyman.

rosemary's baby are an exquisite TOPY related bandTOPY got much more interesting when people became less interested in PTV. Of course there was one person who was involved that didn’t like this very much…
Psychick Warriors Ov Gaia were a great TOPY related group.
