This is a work in progress and will be modified regularly
Behavior is other directed.
All behavior is directed by someone else.
This is an important step in the application of mind control.
No behavioral choice is ever left to the member.
All behavior is carefully scripted. The will of the member must be broken to the will of the cult.
What is behavior? Behavior is action taken as a result of either conciously directed adjustments to the immediate environment or unconscious adjustments to the immediate environment. By definition environment is the immediate surroundings either physical or mental in which one finds themselve.
In order to control the mind of the member the cult must get the member to voluntarily go along with whatever the cult leaders say.
The behavior of the member must be totally subordinate to the will of the cult.
For example one might be heard to question the appropriateness of a song that will be performed at a meeting. The cult will have the final say on the songs that can be sung there. What is OKay for one is not for another.
"I hope that this song is on the approved list."
(There is no approved list! However the singer then must seek out someone in "authority" to approve the song.)
Eventually you have no control over the events in your life
A person is designated to supervise a portion of the cult life. For example the clothing that the members of the cult may wear. In many instances this is rigidly controlled. Shirts must be of certain colors. Dresses may have to be a certain length. Open neck blouses may be not allowed. Underwear may be strictly supervised. Shoes may have to be of a particular style.
In some cults outlandish dancing is required. In others dancing is not allowed at all.
Actually it is not so much what behavior is controlled as it is how much behavior is controlled. The more that behavior is not a personal choice, the more the organization should be questioned as to its purpose.
