As you know, Britain has never had an official government policy towards pernicious or criminogenic cultism. Legalistically, this global, historical phenomenon does not exist in the UK, but two months ago the instigator, and self-appointed sovereign ruler, of an extremely dangerous, counterfeit religious group, Michael Lyons, was sent to prison in the UK for 10 years for raping one of his endless-chain of women followers and assaulting another. Police and prosecutors knew that Lyons was a psychologically dominant charlatan who had given himself an impressive, made-up name and title, 'Dr. Mohan Singh,' and that he held himself accountable to no one. They also knew that for every former-adherent who was prepared to file a complaint, Lyons had dozens more who remained silent, as well as numerous current adherents who were illogically prepared to invert-reality on his behalf. During Lyons' trial, prosecutors openly described his group as a 'cult,' his silent victims as 'traumatized and terrified' and his current victims as 'brainwashed.' However, as far as I am aware, it did not come out during the trial of Lyons that he undoubtedly suffered from severe and inflexible Narcissistic Personality Disorder. This resulted in his grandiose sense of self-importance/righteousness and the compulsion to take advantage of others and to control others view of, and behaviour towards, him. For 22 years, Lyons steadfastly pretended moral and intellectual authority whilst pursuing various hidden criminal objectives (fraudulent, sexual, and violent). The admiration of his adherents only served to confirm, and magnify, Lyons' strong sense of self-entitlement and his fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, etc.
Sadly, Lyons' totalitarian state in microcosm was neither original nor unique. His parallel kingdom exhibited the universal identifying characteristics of a pernicious or criminogenic cult. Yet a UK government-funded organization, known as, 'INFORM' (which comprises a co-opted clique of sociologists at the London School of Economics), has spent the last 20+ years ignoring the ugly reality lurking behind various, essentially-identical groups; all of which have employed co-ordinated, devious techniques of social, psychological and physical persuasion. These techniques are designed to fulfil the hidden criminal objectives of their narcissistic leaders, by provoking in their co-narcissistic core-adherents an infantile total dependence on the group to the detriment of themselves and of their existing family, and/or other, relationships.
To the eternal shame of successive British governments, more than $2millions of UK taxpayers' money has been diverted to fund the reality-inverting activities of the founder of 'INFORM', Prof. Eileen Barker, who has steadfastly tried to misinform the world that various camouflaged organized crime groups are 'new religious movements' being unjustly attacked by an isolated bunch of irrational 'anti-cutists' and a small minority of 'disgruntled former members.'
It is no wonder, Shyam, that the unmasked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. 'IBOFB' Steadson, has been so keen to identify on your Blog (albeit indirectly) with this co-opted clique of fellow, useful idiots; for their inverted model of reality, is exactly the same as his own.
