Abstract


Die doel van hierdie artikel is om 'n bewustheid vir die gevare van godsdienstige kultes te kweek. Die proses wat deur hierdie kultes aangewend word om lede te werf en uiteindelik te beheer is so subtiel dat dit die oortuiging by die lede laat dat hulle uit vrye wil betrokke is. 'n Oorsigtelike bespreking van wat godsdienstige kultes is asook hoe hulle funksioneer word gevolg deur 'n uiteensetting van "mind control" en die wyse waarop dit deur die kultes aangewend word. Hierdie artikel handhaaf die beskouing dat "mind control" die geheime wapen is waarmee die leiers van kultes hulle volgelinge onder valse voorwensels lok, mislei, beheer en uiteindelik afhanklik maak van die kulte.

The aim of this article is to create awareness of the dangers of religious cults. The process utilised by these cults to recruit members and to control their lives is so subtle that members are led to believe that they joined out of their own free will. A brief discussion of what religious cults are as well as how they function is followed by an explanation of mind control and how it is utilised by cults. This article maintains that mind control is the secret weapon with which leaders of cults lure their followers under false pretences to mislead, control and make them dependent on the cult.
