    Hi everyone,

    Its been a long time since I've been on here and even longer since I posted so firstly hi!

    I'm doing a college course and my group's project is on Cults and the Tactics of Mind Control. I was hoping people on here could suggest books, websites and any other hints and tips. All suggestions welcome!

    I have both Steve Hassan's books and have been on his website as well as the Bill Ross Institute and factnet.org

    Thanks all

    Maybe you should try joining a cult so you can do research. That'd be fun, right? OK, maybe not.

    I don't know if this psychology blog will help:


    And Lifton's Eight Criteria of Mind Control

    Hey MissingLink,

    Thanks for the links. Will check them out now.

    Lifton's criteria are on the factnet site too so I've already included them in my section of the project which is a 5 minute talk on cult tactics and characteristics....deja vu or what?! Hahaha but at least I'll know what do to on the night we've to present this project. It'll have been 2 and a half years since my last 5 min talk though under very different circumstances!


    PS We must catch up soon, its been ages!
