A guy on YouTube who got popular spouting ideas on social and political issues, Molyneux gained additional notoriety when he started encouraging people to cut off their natural families. Some followers took his advice seriously, and mums crying about the consequences have gone to the media to tell their story.
It's interesting how this resembles and also differs from JW shunning. Decided upon by individuals rather than elders the effects would seem to be no less devastating for the shunned. Perhaps more so since the shunning is not communally enforced as such and a personal choice of the shunner.
Would you consider this guy Molyneux a cult leader and dangerous? Or is this qualitatively different than what the GB tell their followers to do?
