So the article I selected is, “Who Joins Cults, And Why?”, as the title states this article talks about those who join cults and why they join it. It starts off saying that anyone can be influenced or persuaded into these cults. It tends to happen through these vulnerable states we go through, such as not getting the job you wanted or not getting accepted into the college you wanted. It tend to happen that way because these cults are offering them a safe place where they are accepted. But the thing with these cults is that there’s no saying what will be expected of them long-term wise. Nevertheless many cults have still flourished within these past decades, they’ve changed there’s ways of recruiting, targeting, and operating. Most cult member today are above average intelligence and adaptable but are somewhat idealistic.
