    I knew the church was low, but the detail of stealing a fingerprint of Paulette Cooper, stealing her stationary, and then framing her for a bomb threat is pretty amazingly down-in-the-dregs low.

    And we (humans) still have such an easy-to-manipulate tendency towards cultish behavior. So sad.

    I myself have wanted to find a 'peaceful community', but always knew the risks of cults were too high to really join anything like that. And I couldn't found one either, because someone else would turn it into a cult.

    What is the human quality that makes this possible?
