The Source Family, which sounds like it was pretty much the '70s California hippie cult/commune par excellence, is the subject of a very interesting documentary, available on Hulu and Youtube. The outsider-y, semi-improvised ritual psychedelic music produced by Father Yod and YaHoWha 13 is something, all right. Can't wait for the forthcoming TV miniseries about the Source Family, directed by Todd Haynes.

I've been reading up a lot about evangelical fundie cults (yes, IBLP/ATI/Quiverfull all qualify as cults even if the isolationism isn't the quite same as People's Temple/CUT/Children of God et al.) because their influence on American politics (up to state and HOR level at the very least) is terrifying when you are equipped with body parts that make you a political football (like a uterus and ovaries). I want to see those motherfuckers go down more than anything, especially for their bitching about/political influence on abortion, female body autonomy, patriarchy, etc.

If you don't mind the smelly vaginaness of it all, Free Jinger has some good current event info on some of the current fundie cults of personality and their doings along with some stories from survivors about the inner workings of fundiedom (mostly IFB variety). There's also smelly female vagina like gossip so it's not for the faint of delicate man hearts.
You guys don't mind that I crash your little sausage party, right?

Somewhat related, this looks worthwhile:

That man's voice is terrifying.

Not at all related, some to-the-tits brainwashed guy hangs out by my GF's workplace handing out Tony Alamo newsletters. The one she picked up a couple of weeks ago--which was pristine, mind you, looked like it was hot off the presses--was dated January-March 2003.

Haven't had time to listen yet, but Tina Dupuy's podcast on cults Cultish is up and running after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Dupuy's a comedian and writer who grew up in the Children of God cult.

Thug Willie Spills Secrets About FLDS
cnn wrote:"We have people here who are 30 years old and aren't married. They haven't even gone out on a date. How sad is that?"

But the FLDS allegedly has found a way to keep the next generation coming. A select group of particularly pious men, called Seed Bearers, are tasked with impregnating the women of Short Creek.

Wanna see something really disturbing?

Watch this Forensic Files episode about the Rajneeshees cult in Oregon:

phpBB [media]


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1984_Rajn ... ror_attack

The 1984 Rajneeshee bioterror attack was the food poisoning of 751 individuals in The Dalles, Oregon, through the deliberate contamination of salad bars at ten local restaurants with salmonella. A leading group of followers of Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh (later known as Osho) had hoped to incapacitate the voting population of the city so that their own candidates would win the 1984 Wasco County elections.[2] The incident was the first and single largest bioterrorist attack in United States history.[3][4] The attack is one of only two confirmed terrorist uses of biological weapons to harm humans since 1945, the other being the 2001 anthrax attacks across the USA.[5]

The Hunt for the Zodiac Killer is ok tv, even if it has the obvious reality show cadence. There is still enough old crime stuff to make it interesting, and maybe the Four Pi Movement will be discussed...
