    It's a cult because it is not based on empirical evidence.

    It's a cult because it has a guru.

    It is a cult because it has a jargon.

    But most of all it is a cult because it is based on illusion and desire.

    And if you don't believe me, silvery sleeves, who knows where you will end up.

    Do I want that on my conscience?

    Indeed, I am the Catcher in the Rye.

    Here we all are on Typology Central running through the field of Rye just above head height, and we can't see that the field of Rye ends abruptly in a steep cliff with no fence.

    So here I am, trying to catch you before you run over the cliff.

    Default Cult Recruiting

    Typically cults recruit from the vulnerable and the unhappy. And we recruit largely from vulnerable and unhappy school children.

    By that definition, the Boy Scouts is a cult. For that matter, so are most fan clubs.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    People create cults to get laid. People join cults, also --- to get laid. You know you're in a cult when you see everyone around you getting laid.
    I thought Dungeon Master was a jerk for talking in riddles all the time. That's probably why Venger went to the dark side.
