8 Signs of a Cult

And now, the 8 signs of a cult,  that I will apply to capitalism or whatever you want to call our current system.

  1.      Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability.

Check! Go where the money goes, you got no money? Bad luck, you will get a shit life. Born in a poor position, poor country with starving parents? You will suffer. Accountability, like all the egoist are accountable? The big banking guys giving each other bonuses for failing? The corporate owners who use methods of manipulation to sell , even thought is creates abuse in various forms (like animal abuse, sweatshop work in different countries, burned out employees etc…)

2.      No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry.

Check! You can question, and be critical, as long as you are no threat to the status quo. So there is “guarded tolerance”. As long as you still walk in line it’s all good, as long as the basic system is still running, your good to go.

  1. No meaningful financial disclosure regarding budget, expenses such as an independently audited financial statement.

Check! Bank secrets, money out of nowhere, money spend on projects to create more profit but destroy the planet  etc…

  1. Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions.

Check! I mean, look at how many people fear all sorts of things, have social phobia’s, conspiracy theories, fear of the apocalypse, paranoia, hell or simply fear of being outcasted when you don’t fit in. This can only exist in a system of dishonesty and separation.

  1. There is no legitimate reason to leave, former followers are always wrong in leaving, negative or even evil.

Check! Basically it is even worse, if you leave, you’ll most likely die. If you do not follow the profit driven machine, than you’re not a good worker! A.k.a. slave. Your not working 9 to 5 like anyone else to produce all the useless products the consumers are made to desire, so that profit can be made forever and ever. If you don’t follow in the lines, your bad, a freak, a criminal. Even when you’re a criminal because you have been born in a poor environment and you have never known anything else then to fight for your survival. The system doesn’t care. It doesn’t care that it creates abuse and poverty, which creates crime in itself. It just cares about punishing the crime it creates, so that it can keep existing.

  1. Former members often relate the same stories of abuse and reflect a similar pattern of grievances.

Check! Look at history classes , lol, can’t deny that.

  1. There are records, books, news articles, or television programs that document the abuses of the group/leader.

Check! Library, newspapers, internet, everywhere! It will show you all the abuses. DAILY! It is bombarded in our face, but we don’t even see it. Starvation, animal exploitation, destruction of nature, pollution, sweatshop work, child molestation etc… Various group leaders contribute to this, our very system does.

  1. Followers feel they can never be “good enough”.

Check! Soooo many people feel not good enough. When you are not beautiful enough, you’re not good enough. When you don’t work long and hard, you’re not good enough, when you don’t wear the clothing to fit in, you’re not good enough, when you say things too much out of the box, you’re not good enough. More and more people go visit psychiatrists and get depressions. And in this system, can they ever be good enough? Because insecurity makes money you know.
