A selection of quotes from Destructive and Terrorist Cults: A New Kind Of Slavery.

Sleep deprivation Nasrin, one of Maryam Rajavi’s deputies, explained one day in a meeting how important it was that members should be exhausted by hard work and have less sleep than they needed. She said: When a member goes to bed and closes his eyes, he should be so tired that he goes to sleep immediately, and when he wakes up in the morning, he should still be tired and in need of more sleep. For if he is not tired enough, he will start thinking in bed when he is alone and this is where his ‘satanic twin56’ can tempt him back towards his former self and redirect him from the right path

Previously we have explained the importance of collective houses for cults, where all the occupants are obliged to conform to the group. In these collective houses everybody follows everybody else, and often there is not a single person among them who knows why they behave as they do. There was an experiment with monkeys I read about a long time ago and unfortunately no longer remember the source, but it presents a very nice example of my point. A group of scientists put ten monkeys in a cage. They hung a banana from the ceiling, and put a stool in the middle of the cage for monkeys to use to climb up and reach the banana. Whenever any monkey tried to climb, the scientists started pouring cold water over the other monkeys. After some time, the monkeys began to understand the connection between climbing and being drenched in cold water. From then on, whenever a monkey tried to reach the banana, the other monkeys would attack it, beating it and forcing it off the stool. Once the beating of the monkey on top of the stool was established as a norm among the group, the researchers stopped pouring the water on the others. Then they took one monkey out of the cage and introduced a new monkey to the cage. The new monkey, being naturally unfamiliar with the rule, instinctively got up on the stool to try to reach the banana, whereupon he was promptly beaten off it by the other monkeys. After the new monkey had learned about the rule, the researchers again replaced one of the original monkeys with a new monkey. They did this repeatedly until in the end none of the original monkeys was left in the cage. They now had ten ‘new’ monkeys in the cage that had no memory of the cold water and the reason for the rule forbidding them to reach the banana, but found that all the monkeys continued to respect the rule.
