Mind Control Seminars. Including Isolation / Solitary Confinement.  Torture and Interrogation

Attention. This is intended as a supplement to the extensive, in depth and practical ** work we did on mind control techniques (biological and social correlates). ** Including (C-V) entering into a congregation in a US southern State and what we learned. Also (extensive)  on Jim Jones. We will move on from there.

Note why this topic is of concern to us.

The human head, i.e. consciousness has never been a ‘lonely fortress’, it has always been part of a group fortification. Consciousness of the individual is still very weak before the onslaught of any group education, quite organised and focused. In one audience, to the question of how psychologically malleable a person is, I once answered; “If a separate interlocutor needs to tell her partner a hundred times that he (or she) is a pig, so that he grunts, then a group of a hundred people just need to tell their individual member once, that the sun rises in the west to believe it once and for all.”

Destructive cults use this circumstance intensively, trying to immediately get potential adherents to their collective events; seminars, meetings, services, etc. The emissaries of the Sri Chinmoy group invited people to free meditations or to concerts of ‘sacred music?),’ the centres of Dianetics and Hubbard Colleges, the recruiting structures of the Church of Scientology,do  invite to group auditing and management seminars, all over the world “- the recruiting structure of other churches of ‘unification’ – invite you to seminars on family issues and the  philosophy of True Love. Har. Har. Examples are numerous, but their meaning remains the same – in a group, all the more unfamiliar, it is easier for a person to inspire something, to convince something, it is easier to imperceptibly manipulate them. At the same time, joining a group often occurs through individual contact with specially trained recruiters, who bring newcomers under a group press set of techniques, like the famous Pied Piper took his children away with his pipe (if you want tobelieve that it’s a good analogy).

Why People Enter Into Cults – Tactics

Membership in a destructive cult is the result of two interacting forces :

(I) the tactics used by cults to recruit, convert, process and retain cultists

(II) the personal vulnerability of a potential noviciate

Let’s begin with the second factor. Recruiters of worship, skilled in assessing prospective clients, most often turn to those who are currently in an unusual, unstable, or unpleasant social and psychological situation. These can be people on holiday (travel, places of entertainment), university students (especially the first and last years of study), the elderly (recently retired or long-term loneliness), naive adolescents with their self-determination crisis, anyone experiencing some kind of stress (illness, death of loved ones, divorce, inmates, etc.), migrants, refugees, the unemployed, of whom all probably have a need for friendliness, cordiality and are looking for ‘connections’.

Special risk groups are individuals engaged in intensive spiritual quest, seeking to ‘complete and absolute Truth’ (often understood as simple and unambiguous answers to very complex questions), as well as individuals with an artistic mentality. This group overlaps with the category of persons who in the West are called ‘true believers’ and who are characterised by the predominance of the external locus of control in behaviour and consciousness. In general, it can be said that under certain circumstances, the victim of manipulation by destructive cults can be, if only for a short time, any person (except you and I, of course).

Recruiting Tactics

The American Family Fund which I have here, brochure lists four signs of a recruiter :

(I) This is the most friendly person you have ever met.

(II) This is a person who is too interested in what you find out he likes to do.

(III) The one who showered you with compliments and praises and calmly assesses what you can take from: enthusiasm, energy, physical or intellectual strength, money, an apartment, etc.

(IV) One who has all the answers to all the questions.

If the prospective customer looks like :

One who has all the answers to all the questions.

As the prospective client looks receptive, the recruiter makes a deliberate, calculated attempt to engage him/her in the conversation, ignite his/her interest and entice via the following means :

– showing concern for the well-being of the prospective client, expressing an unusually good awareness of his/her feelings and emotional state, which makes the prospective client (I almost used a different ‘c’ word) believe that they really understand him/her. For example, having learned about the trips of the person being recruited, the recruiter can say : “So, you have been on the road for two months. You must be tired, feel lonely, without any real roots?”;

– demonstrating a keen, uniting interest in the ideas being recruited, interests, hopes, goals, for example, saying: “Oh, you are a musician. Well, I just happened to live with a group of musicians …”;

– keeping eye contact, maintaining close physical proximity, ‘attacking’ sexually (in a psychological sense);

– extracting personal information about the current position of the person being recruited, his/her worries, problems, stresses.

psychological sense;

– extracting personal information regarding the current position of the person being recruited, his/her worries, problems, stresses. For example, a recruiter may ask: “What do your parents think about your travels across the country?” or “Do you have an intimate relationship with someone?” or “Do you know what you want to do with your life?”

If the recruiter succeeds, the person being recruited will feel an emotional connection with the recruiter, as well as the willingness or desire to maintain contact. When recruited clients are considered ready – and this may be after fifteen minutes of conversation or after several random meetings, they can be invited to join or visit the group. Recruiters often customise their group descriptions to match the interests of the person being recruited. For example, a recruited client seeking spiritual attainment may be invited to a ‘spiritual discussion group,’ while the same recruiter may invite another recruited, interested in psychology, to a ‘human potential workshop.’

For a naive or uninformed observer, recruiters of cults appear very concerned about the welfare of those with whom they enter into conversation. However, their true intention is much less attractive – to quickly assess whether the client being recruited will be a valuable acquisition for the group, that is, able to bring in money and attract new followers. If he/she is considered deserving of investment, a shower of attention and generous care will fall on the person being recruited until he/she accepts the obligation to join the group. At this point, the recruiter’s initial care moves to other likely candidates. Unfortunately, a new recruit is often too embraced by the enthusiasm of this new devotion to notice that this good friend and recruiter has left him/her for someone else.

The champions of recruitment are apparently members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses sect, who bypass quarter by quarter, flat by flat, sometimes several times, armed with detailed instructions containing 86 ways of making contact and joining conversation with recruited. Only a special sign on the door with the inscription; Jehovah’s Witnesses are asked not to disturb or more bluntly (f *** off) and which saves from their intrusiveness.

Note: Different cults use different recruitment techniques, while some cults pay little attention to recruiting. The above is a very general and rather scanty description. Also, please note that many popular therapies and even some traditional religions offer promises of accomplishment similar to destructive cults. However, destructive cults can be distinguished by their totalitarian structure, unscrupulous manipulation and the resulting harm.

The purpose of conversion in destructive cults is that the recruited unconditionally accept the beliefs, practices and personality traits prescribed by the group. The length of time required to appeal varies from one recruited to another and from group to group. Some cults try to commit a full appeal during an intense weekend; others have a more relaxed approach, wetting the appetites of potential converts for weeks or months before allowing them to formally be accepted into the group. Some individuals are not fully converted. These people remain at the edges of the group, are considered temporary and never achieve high status among the cultists. Partial or unsuccessful recourse may arise due to the inability to comply with the expectations of the group, the extraordinary ability to resist the pressure of the group.  Appeal may arise from the inability to comply with the expectations of the group, the extraordinary ability to resist the pressure of the group, boredom or non-cult obligations and responsibilities that were too attractive and / or urgent even for the high pressure of the group’s religious beliefs.

Successful conversion is often accompanied by a radical change in converts, when they take upon themselves the ideal cult personality (agree with the cult’s demand that they ‘become like children,’ ‘become completely calm,’ ‘separate from the material world,’ etc.), and replace their former lifestyle, vocabulary, interests, friends, and values ​​by what is prescribed by the cult. This striking break with the past can initially cause powerful stresses to converts, who often feel the discontinuity of their former and present life, attracted by opposing attachments and bewildered in relation to their true nature. Continuous submission to the practices and beliefs of cults, however, often alleviates these stresses, and, in the end, previous beliefs, lifestyles and even past life experiences look distant, partially forgotten and substantially separated (dissociated) from today’s consciousness.

Although specific means may vary from group to group, there are a number of common tactics used by destructive cults to achieve treatment. Some of which include :

Control of time and activities (behaviour), that is, the subordination of potential converts to a calculated strict time schedule, within which each moment is associated with physically and emotionally intense activities. This leaves little or no time for solitude and reflection. Such a schedule may include :

lecture marathon, long meetings – group meetings, intensive one-on-one consultations, free dances or energetic sports, hypnotic exercises, creating distinct visual images (visualisation), meditation, meditation, monotonous singing, hot prayer meetings, inadequate sleep and food.

Results: reduced psychological protection, diminished attention, physical and emotional exhaustion, weakened ability to critically evaluate a group, trans-like states, which are often distracting and make a person highly susceptible to suggestion.

Information control, for example; cutting off or slandering external sources of information, such as social media, television, radio, newspapers, communication with people outside the group; ‘bombing’ recruited cult literature, records and lectures on ideological processing; classifying certain information about a cult as ‘secret’ (for example, who is the leader; what sacrifices, changes in lifestyle and financial obligations are required from the cultists; what does the money go to); distortion (“We collect money for children deprived of favorable conditions”) and open lies (“None of our followers give money to the leader,” “We do not believe that our guru is God”).

Results: Information control hinders informed decision-making and thus prevents the cult from being critically evaluated.

Manipulation of language :

This can be accomplished by assigning new and additional meanings to ordinary words. For example, in the Mission of Divine Light (WTF), the word ‘knowledge’ means four meditation techniques that are taught during the initial occupation, which presumably gives a person knowledge of God; the word ‘mind’ is synonymous with evil thoughts and forces within people who withdraw the primary lesson that supposedly gives a person the knowledge of God and the Truth;  ‘peace’ refers to that which is outside the Mission of Divine Light and therefore is unenlightened.

Additional tactics include : the use of special vocabulary (for example, artificial words and phrases); introducing a foreign language (s) into conversation and singing; the desire to discourage the ‘banal’ conversation regarding non-cult activities, interests and ideas; limiting the expression of personal thoughts and feelings about one’s past and future.

Results : The recruits feel dedicated to exclusive language, vocabulary and new knowledge. They begin to feel more comfortable communicating with the cultists, and, eventually, as soon as this language becomes part of their everyday speech, they feel inhibited in communicating with people outside the cult who clearly cannot understand this. This contributes to the we-they polarised mentality, with potential new converts beginning to identify more with the cult and less with the uncultured world.

Weaning from critical, rational thinking. For example, many cults get rid of doubts, criticism, and cultists’ questions with statements like, “Everything will become clear with time” or threats like “Satan is in the root of all doubt” or admonitions such as; “If you want to know God, you must go beyond rationality.”

Results: The recruits experience feelings of guilt due to doubts, questions, or using their intellectual abilities to evaluate the cult. Many even begin to consider their minds as a troublemaker, a generator of poisonous doubts, Satan’s weapons, har, har, and the like.

Teaching techniques that cause transition. This may include; meditation, monotonous singing, speaking in tongues (glossary, that is, pronouncing incoherent and meaningless sound combinations in a state of individual or group ecstasy), self-hypnosis, creating vivid mental images (visualisation) and controlled breathing exercises (resulting in depletion or oversaturation of blood with oxygen and altering the process of brain activity).

Results: These techniques, especially if they are revealed to the new believer during intense special initiation ceremonies, often make the recruited feel special and / or divinely involved. Stimulation of trances and the like can be very effective in suppressing doubts and increasing suggestibility for further ideological processing. For some particularly vulnerable people, the use of such techniques can lead to mental disruptions. Note our previus discussions on Mind Control Techniques.

Confessions during which the cultists are forced to give out extremely personal information about past and present offenses and ‘sins’, real or imagined.

Results : Recruits who reveal such information may experience initial feelings of guilt and shame, and then a sense of relief after recognition. They may even become addicted to this self-blaming activity as a way to alleviate their feelings of guilt. However, those who want to leave the cult are often afraid that the cult may use the information they disclose to blackmail or slander them.

Group pressure, that is, the proposal of positive reinforcement, such as approval, affection or elevated status, when the cultists agree with the goals of the group, and the refusal of such reinforcement or punishment of those who speak or act contrary to cult regulations.

Result : Those recruited may succumb to group pressure, despite persistent beliefs that are contrary to religious beliefs and practices.

Destructive cults are aware that even the most faithful converts are suspicious and can retreat unless they are subjected to an intensive and constant programme.

Wow, as approval, affection or elevated status, when the cultists agree with the goals of the group, and the refusal of such reinforcement or punishment of those who speak or act contrary to the cult prescriptions.

Result : Those recruited may succumb to group pressure, despite persistent beliefs that are contrary to religious beliefs and practices.

Destructive cults are aware that even the most faithful converts are suspicious and can retreat if they are not exposed to an intensive and ongoing support programme as I just said. Therefore, a lot of time and effort is invested in maintaining the loyalty of converts, by using tactics similar to those I am about to describe.

Convince the convert to a harsh lifestyle that reflects religious values. Many cults contain a kind of hostel (‘monasteries’, ‘ashrams’, etc.), where all activities are concentrated around religious purposes. The cultists are often pressured by promises of higher status in order to make them live in these houses, for example; “The guru loves all ‘his’ children, but ‘he’ (note the gender) especially loves those who join ‘his’ monastic home and dedicate ‘his’ whole life to him.” – BS of the worst order.

Results : Strict adherence to the cult lifestyle serves to obey and strengthen the devotion of the worshipper. In addition, vigorous programmess for fundraising, recruiting, and other cult-oriented activities exhaust converts, leaving no time or energy to question cult beliefs.

Training and Hania

Training and excessive use of trance-causing techniques such as meditation, prayer, monotonous singing, self-hypnosis, and ‘speaking in tongues’ (I want to mention the latter again).

Results : Similar techniques can result in the suppression of thoughts, feelings and doubts; weakened intellectual and critical ability; oftentimes and not surprisingly psychopathology.

Please note : These techniques are not harmful in themselves with moderate, appropriate and strictly controlled (professional doctor or psychologist) use. They are harmful in destructive cults because they are used to suppress independent sound thinking, and not to understand and ‘work out’ mental difficulties.

A public statement of loyalty, such as; encouraging new converts to recruit others (some cults offer higher status and other reward to successful recruiters), make solemn statements at public meetings, sign statements of loyalty.

Results: A public statement reinforces the loyalty of the converted cult and makes those leaving seem to betray the trust.

The recurring threats of sanctions for leaving, such as; “If you leave, your life will fall apart into pieces”; or “your soul will rot”; or “you will go to hell”; or “your relatives will suffer”; or “your life will be in danger.”

Result: Converts are afraid to leave the cult.

The promise of immediate fulfillment, peace, salvation, for example, telling the converted that if they “just try a little harder, give a little more” themselves, they will achieve any reward promised by the cult.

Results: Converts are constantly striving to achieve utopian ideals and blame themselves for not trying hard enough.

Limited access to external sources of information or lack of it.

Result: There are no opposing points of view to stimulate critical thinking about the cult. Strengthening the perception that doubts about a group reflect the shortcomings of the doubter, but not the group.

Lack of uncultured connections and emotional support.

Results : Converts become addicted to a cult in friendship, intimacy and emotional support; feelings of alienation, hostility and paranoia with regard to the uncultured world are increasingly intensified.

Control of sexual intimacy and intimacy

The imprisonment of the uncultured world is becoming ever more intense.

Control of sexual intimacy and intimate relationships within the cult; for example, a leader can dictate whether to marry, when, and if you need to have sexual relations, children, sterilisation, abortions.

Results: Converts may develop a distorted, impersonal view of sexuality and sexual intercourse. Leaders are protected from the possibility that close friends will share doubts about the group and strengthen them.

Constant confession and self-blame.

Results : Converts experience shame, then relief, then they feel indebted to the cult for salvation from their ‘evil nature.’

Excessive financial obligations, often requiring the transfer in favour of the cult of the inheritance, bank accounts, payment checks and other tangible property (houses, cars, audio and video equipment, etc.).

Results : The cultists are virtually penniless and financially dependent on the group. Also, if a lot of money was donated, the converts can justify their investments, turning a blind eye to destructive elements.

Materials

Submitted materials on the psychology of recruiters.
This is not only knowledge for special services and sectarians. Recruitment involved in all everyday life. And at work, and at home, among friends and girlfriends, with sales, hiring workers, new acquaintances.

Instructions for Recruiters

Below, in order to better understand the process of engaging in supposed churches of ‘Unification’, fragments of recommendations will be given, with which the management of the organisation supplies its recruiters, as well as our comments explaining the purpose of these or other methods of influence. It should be noted that not all members of the organisation have the right to receive such recommendations.

First of all, you need to become a friend of the guest, for this, first of all, you should contact him/her with a smile and an underlined expression of love. (People often lack attention, communication, love. A sect makes up for it with a substitute for love. The task is to open a person to communicate, make people around him/her see friends in the sect, put down his/her guard, which is quite natural, considering that he/she is in an unusual environment and communicates with completely unfamiliar folk, or fuckers, call them what you like).

First determine what the guest needs, ask about his/her family, about his/her relationship with each relative, whether he/she has a close friend whom he/she trusts, what he/she doubts, dreams about, what plans he/she makes. (All this information must be recorded and provided to the coordinator. These actions solve the problem of collecting data on personal problems, likes and dislikes of a person, which is then used to manipulate them. It may be ‘accidental’ that his/her interlocutor loves the same thing, yes and they have the same antipathies. Or, to establish contact with the person being recruited, he/she is introduced to an agent of influence close in psycho type.

It is necessary to provide super-attention (love), and then even the most difficult person becomes pliable. (This technique is termed ‘love bombardment’: continuous flattery, super-intrusive attention of recruiters, every word of a recruited person is met with ‘applause.’ A person begins to feel like an idol, and he/she likes that).

Enter confidence, be constantly aware of what a person is doing, but do not let him/her feel that he/she is under observation. (A person does not defend against whom he/she trusts, which facilitates the work of the recruiter. Also, in order to change new attitudes, it is necessary to instill to the recruited person that he/she makes his/her choice voluntarily, therefore the sect carefully hides that everything that happens to him/her is just a performance, goal which – to recruit a person).

Incline the person being recruited to keep a personal diary on the proposed list of issues related to personal and family secrets. (Through a diary, recruiters receive information about a person’s inner world, their experiences and fears, which makes it possible to correct the methods of influence used against a person).

Encourage members to share diaries with each other. (Such an exchange creates the illusion of trusting relationships, a kind of psychological intimacy between sect followers).

Be sure to report at HQ meetings on everything that was noticed in the guests’ reactions at the lectures. (The recruiter ‘him’self is just a cog in the sect system. The recruitment process is not the result of the recruiter’s personal creativity, it’s rather a rolling technology, the recruiter should simply follow the already existing instructions)

Follow the requirements of the Principle, get the guests to reassess their beliefs and make them want to change their lifestyle. (The principle is the religious system that the moon obeys, its faith. The recruiter’s ultimate goal is to force the person to reconsider his life values, abandon the old ones and accept the new values ​​taught by the Moon sect)

At the extended day seminar, be the subject of love, find out everything about the guest, add new information about him to his/her checklist every day, encourage the recruiting subject to solve all his/her problems with you. (In sects they do not encourage individualism and wean them from independence. From the very beginning a person is taught that now he/she has someone who thinks for him/her, he/she must only obey).

In no case allow criticisms and questions of the organisation. (In sects, all forms of criticism are prohibited, no doubt. In practice, this is achieved by the Munites using the following trick; a person who starts asking uncomfortable questions falls into a psychological blockade. He/she was just an idol and suddenly his/her attitude  was changing dramatically. Thus, the Munites implement the carrot and stick method; if you don’t ask unnecessary questions, then you’re an ‘idol’, if you ask, people take your eyes away from you, smiles disappear, a reproach is read in your eyes. Very quickly a person understands how he/she should behave.”This psychological pressure method is very effective).

…..and hair on the head is not always smoothly combed – this is already enough to know something about the inner world of a person. Often the jaws are clenched – this is a true admit of inner fitness, composure and will. This is difficult to recruit, but then it is easy to work with such. For a very long time, I have been stealing my expression on his face. Especially important to me are all the details about his eyes; eyes are located widely, eyelids do not hang, small bags under eyes. Pupils move from one position to another very slowly and linger in one position for a long time. The eyelids lower slowly and just as slowly lifts them. Look long, but not always attentive. More often the sight is absent, than studying. When studying a person, special attention is paid to the muscles of the mouth in different situations: during a smile, in anger, in irritation, in relaxation. But a smile is condescending, scornful, squeamish, happy, ironic, sarcastic, there is a winner’s smile and a loser’s smile, an embarrassed smile or a threatening smile, close to a grin. And in all these situations, the muscles of the face are involved. The work of these muscles is a mirror of the soul. And these details are much more important than knowledge of his/her financial and official difficulties, although it is not bad to know……..
