Note another characteristic of cult thinking -- total separation of
the illuminati from the "herd" -- the idea that the "chosen" are
irrevocably different from those other unfortunate creatures that

It is also worth noting that frequently cult members are very
intelligent, very capable people -- high intelligence is absolutely no
defense against insanity.
