Cult Deception: A Recent Personal Case Study

On my two anti-cult blogs dealing with Moonies and Amway, I emphasize that cults use deception about who they are to potential recruits. A recent personal experience is revealing: I was in Hollywood and a man was passing out free tickets to the "Psychiatry: An Industry of Death" Museum on Sunset Boulevard. When I asked, the man claimed that the museum was not affiliated with the Church of Scientology. A quick Google search finds that he wasn't telling the truth. Information and totalitarian cults like Scientology, Amway, and Unification are incompatible. That's why the Amway Google bomb was so powerful.
