How are People Manipulated?

Skilled manipulators, be it a person or a pseudo-religious organization, know how to get people to do what they want them to do. One such manipulator made the following claim:

“Making people do what I want is the easiest thing in the world. All it takes is:
1) Make them think we have something special and everyone else is deluded; and/or
2) Make them think they are not doing enough; and/or
3) Threaten to take their family away.”

Do you know any person or group that uses any or all of these techniques to unduly influence people?

  1. Jehovah’s Witnesses teach all three of those tactics.
    It’s an effective teaching because most of their members are sleep-walking their way through life. :/

  2. Yes, Jw.orgy! # four…scare everyone with “burning hell”/armageddon….? That should hold people in the org. The end is here…sign over, give all to Jehovah/Gb of Jw.org….look how we have concocted the Tower of Babble at Warwick…now we can live in shameless luxury…just a thought…;). Evidence speaks for itself….
