I can imagine being trapped into something like this without having any outside contact, but I can't understand how these leaders rise up and control people so well in the first place. How are they making any money? If most of them are on assistance how did they ever get up $100,000,000 and build all of the compounds they seem to have? This is all creepy to the max, and to some degree, is going on in rural Mormon communities all over Arizona. Not so much the plural marriage thing, but just the male dominance and abuse issues. They've got some mental hospital up in Flagstaff where women are sent to be cured for disobeying their husbands! I think rural is the key word. It's a sort of don't ask don't tell sort of thing that is more common than city folk realize.
I'd just like to understand how this happens? Are there certain types of weak minded people that this appeals to?
