    Having been in a Christian cult for 15 years in my younger days - it was easier functioning within the box they put us in.  No need to think or have any feelings towards anything. They directed it all as "God's purpose on earth" and we followed all the dictates.    

    Using fear, lies and manipulations, as Fox News, Repugs, et al have done during the Obama presidency, it allows those that want to remain in the bubble to stay there.  It fits the box they exist in.  As Jack Nicholson said in "A Few Good Men," they can't handle the truth.

      Hi BeadLady - Thanks for bringing this up. A cult is probably the archetypal example of the exploitation of the dynamic between high  SDO leaders and high  RWA followers. Think Jim Jones, Rev. Moon, Scientology, etc. Once you drink the Koolaid . . .
