B&G Podcast 14: Cults and Personalities
Sept. 24, 2018

A brief response on a 1991 school book on explorers. Focusing on cults and how civilization demands people be broken via domestication. Starting with the NXIVM cult. Reading from ‘Society Without Strangers’ and talk of neoteny. How primal anarchy shapes us, how domestication breaks us, how civilization requires us to be broken, and how cults and gurus can come in to prey on the remnants. Yoga gurus and sexual predation. Other human failures. And the reaping of toxic masculinity among Operation Werewolf and other parasites.

Bashing the feel-good eco-capitalism of Guayaki brand yerba mate. The genocide of the Aché and who is complicit. Slavery and plantations as the product of missionaries.
