WANT unlimited wealth - no taxes to pay - little or no government supervision?
Simple! Proclaim yourself God and start your own cult. It is easier than you
may think. No Spiritual training or knowledge is required. Just follow these
easy to understand step by step instructions and you will be on your way to
becoming a tax free multi-millionaire with private jets, yachts and secret
getaways all over the world.
Your first step is to proclaim yourself God. Or, if that is too ambitious, try
something like "Supreme Spiritual Master" or "Reincarnation of a Past Prophet"
or whatever. Just make it sound super great and powerful. You might want to
make up a previously unknown title for yourself so you can get a copyright on
it and sue anyone who talks bad about you.
You are going to need some church literature - propaganda - that will give
arguments to support your super powers. Most people just copy stuff from
someone else. Paul Twitchell just went to the local library, checked out almost
anything, and then copied a paragraph from each separate book word for word and
made a new book claiming it was his own work. He explained lack of continuity
by saying that you could not understand his great wisdom because you were not
spiritually advanced enough. Since plagiarism is common, the people you copy
from are not likely to complain because they most likely copied their stuff from
someone else also.
Next, you need to start a small following which you will gradually grow into a
worldwide cult. In practice, this process usually takes longer than a single
lifetime. So, your best formula is to use your cult as a family business like
the Singh family does. One member of the family plays the part of "god" and all
of the other family members support him and benefit financially.
You are going to need to do a little leg work to attract and hold a small core
following. You will need to hold small meetings and keep spouting trash until
you find a few suckers that will follow you around and believe you are some
super master. It may take a while to get started but things will exponentially
pick up as time goes on.
UNDERSTANDING THE CON
You need to understand and master the basic con game practiced by essentially
all cults. Some key points to remember are:
1. I am a master and you are not. You can never equal my super powers. You
are inferior, a sinner, loaded with karma, a worthless person, etc. NEVER ADMIT
MISTAKES. It is a sign of weakness.
2. Have an explanation for everything - even if it is illogical. People in
cults gradually lose the capacity to do critical thinking and will accept most
anything as true.
3. If you need to change a policy, say that the "new policy" has "always
existed" and there never was an "old policy". People will believe a lie if it
is repeated often enough. It is a basic principle of brainwashing.
4. "Treat a whore like a lady and a lady like a whore". Your followers are
"ladies". They are honest but naive. You are going to rape them and not only
steal their money but also ruin any chance they may have for legitimate
Spiritual development. For some reason, if you treat them like trash, they will
be more likely to remain as your followers. It works for Gurinder.
FIND AND EXPLOIT A RESPECTED PERSON
It would be a great help if you could find someone with an established
reputation and then use that person's good reputation to further your scam.
Paul Twitchell used the respected writer Brad Steiger and Charan Singh used
David Lane. In both cases, people with respected and legitimate credentials
were successfully used to promote the scams.
UNDERSTAND AND EXPLOIT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL WEAKNESSES OF PEOPLE UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF A FAKE MASTER
From Faqir Chand, a legitimate master [David Lane's book on Chand is on the
internet but the URL occasionally changes so just search for Faqir Chand and the
book "Truth Always Wins"], we know he reports that his followers tell him, from
time to time, that he "appears" to them and helps them. However, Chand, an
honest man, states he has no knowledge of any of this and does not know why it
happens. However, we do know that these things happen. So, you, as a fake
master, can look for this phenomenon and take advantage of it to make people
really believe that you are some kind of god. These affected people will be
loyal to you for life and can be used as an unshakable core of your evil empire
because they have totally convinced themselves that you are for real.
SECURITY AND SECRECY
In order to design a cult that will withstand the test of time, you must have an
effective secrecy and security plan in effect. Otherwise, people who have
figured out you are a fake will expose you. You will lose your following and
your cult will go out of existence.
The main secret you need to keep secret is money. You don't ever want your
followers to find out all the stuff and assets you have or where they are
hidden. The main purpose of setting up your cult was to get rich. But, you
never talk about this. You talk about the quest for enlightenment. You never
say anything about how "enlightened" your bank account has become.
To ensure control you need a standard "need to know" hierarchy. Your family
knows you are a scam artist and they are in on the scam. Some trusted friends
may be too. But, your followers must never know the truth or they will leave
you in a heartbeat.
You need an information control system where all information passes thru you so
you can control knowledge. Knowledge is power. The cult members must only be
allowed the bare minimum of knowledge about your cult. Make it hard for them to
learn the identity of other members so they do not start "comparing notes" which
could allow them to uncover the real truth. All orders come from you. You
appoint all in positions of authority. Everyone "serves" at your pleasure.
Eventually, you may need to set up some kind of damage control system. For
example, if someone catches you in a hot tub with naked girls doing cocaine it
could ruin your reputation as a "holy" person. You may need hired thugs and
assassins to make sure that anyone who learns the truth about you never lives to
talk. After all, there is a multi-million dollar business at stake here. Who
cares about a few lives.
Having taken all the necessary steps to set up a viable cult, you and your
relatives can now relax and just watch the tax free money roll in. Delegate any
remaining jobs and just let the system run on "automatic pilot". Tell followers
you are "off talking with god" or any story you want to make up.
Representatives can do all the leg work now. You don't even have to be seen any
more. Just say you are "watching everything from an invisible plane" or some
such crap. The fools that follow you will recruit more fools and your cult and
bank account will continue to grow."
So from this, did you recognize any or many similarities to your group?
