So I was watching a TV show about a religious cult where the Cult Leader had taken over a town with his religious followers then controlled the police directly along with was marrying 20 wives while forcing all the males to leave the town and told them that they were rejected from Heaven. These people follow these religious nutjobs with absolute belief because they think he was a prophet, What are your thoughts on this?
First of all Victor, was it real people or was it more of your animated cartoon characters?
And then, if it was real people, was it in America? That would be necessary information because it would help on answering your question.
So to begin with, assuming it was real people in America, we can begin with understanding that Americans are already very susceptible to beliving superstitious nonsense and that makes them easy prey.
To be fair on that, it's not meant to tar all Americans with the same brush because undoubtedly there are some that are as immune to that kind of nonsense as other people of other countries. It's just that America seems to have lots of gullible people by comparison.
I won't explore your question any further now until you tell us it's about Americans.
