When you think about it, it's very much akin to the whole creepy clown sightings craze that we saw last year.

I am very familiar with Elizabeth Clare Prophet and Church Universal & Triumphant. They were covered on Leonard Nimoy's program In Search Of in the episode "The Man Who Wouldn't Die". Begun as the Summit Lighthouse in the 1950s it was a scam operation and definitely could be defined as a cult in that questioning the leadership was forbidden and money and service were demanded in return for very little rewards. Long hours of hard work and very little sleep. People died because they were told to ignore symptoms of illness and just keep on working and decreeing. Decrees and affirmations (the "mantras" you spoke of) are a type of prayer related to positive thinking. The reason for the high speed is supposedly to raise the speaker's personal vibrational level.

CUT was based in Christian Science, the I AM Religious Activity, Edgar Cayce and Theosophy. Elizabeth was brain damaged and epileptic, probably had fetal alcohol syndrome, and her mother told her she was having spiritual experiences and past life memories. I think she really believed this, and combined it with her father's political activism to claim she was channeling ascended masters warning of a coming apocalypse for which all must prepare.

This writer born into CUT collects info & reveals facts about life there The Year Of Obedience
Sean Prophet, her son, denounces & debunks all of it (also see his videos on youtube)

Satanic panic wasn't started by Cult Awareness Network but by fundamentalist Bible-thumpers in cahoots with a well intentioned women's movement for child sexual abuse awareness, plus a handful of overzealous psychiatrists.

Cult Awareness Network was into researching and providing info on actual cults like Jonestown. Scientology bought the name "Cult Awareness Network" so the group you want today is www.culteducation.com.

A lot of groups that actually behave like cults, people would never think they were. There was a famous one exposed a few years ago that looked like any old Christian church anywhere. The film Join Us is about people leaving this church. "Cult" is in the behavior, especially the behavior of the leaders, not in the symbology.
