    Thanks to NightOwl for the link.
    This guru in Israel kept a harem, many of whom were children when he recruited them, and now they aren't capable of independent living.
    He was arrested in 2010

    He is only now coming for sentencing.

    "Because of the brainwashing they underwent, they sometimes begin to idealize the past. On one hand this helps soothe the suffering, but on the other it creates an illusion about what they went through, and all of a sudden it doesn't seem so bad," he said."

    Is this why the Indies cling to the past so much? Back when" the tech was more pure before DM fucked it up" :confused:

    There is an excellent description of the zeitgeist movement ( off topic) too. Did you know Lyndon Larouch and the guy who shot Rep. Giffords were zeitgeist s? They refer to Scientology as a cult in that discussion.

    That's not limited to COS. THink of all the people who feel that life was more 'meaningful' back in the day. It's easy for us to idealize the past, thinking it was a simpler place, where everyone knew their place, and there wasn't all this disruption goung on.

    IOW, I think we're seeing the scilon manifestation of a common desire.

    but isn't " idealizing the past" a stronger term than "remembering the past fondly"?
    maybe the guy should of used the term obsessed.

    You'll get no argument from me. I like the modern world with modern dentistry, medicine, iPods and smart phones. I know better than to idealize the past, which was nasty brutish and short for most through most of history.
