Tactics and strategy of the Morninglight


#1

Anyone interested in just how the Morninglight goes about finding, brainwashing and then discarding their members should view the new 6-part Netflix documentary, Wild Wild Country, which describes how the Rajneeshies, followers of the Indian snake-oil merchant Baghwan and his sinister personal assistant Ma Anand Sheela, tried to take over Wasco County, Oregon. Much of it is devoted to on-camera raps by the Bagwan’s faithful minions, including Ma Sheela herself; this can be tiring at first, as they are given free rein to indulge in increasingly paranoid rants, but it does give you an idea of how fully committed to an irrational belief system cultists can get.
