In the video below, you will find a fascinating TED talk from an ex-member of the Moonie cult. In our opinion, the talk itself is far too brief to really delve into the deeper societal and psychological damage done by cults and groups of the like. However, it does touch on some of the reasons why people get seduced by, and further involved with groups like The Moonies or Heaven’s Gate or the idea of Theta Healing.
It’s a quick watch. And well worth your time.
