It’s a common mistake among people who have recently grown into a cultish attachment to their religion: they believe that a new leader is coming to the rescue.
But, it turns out, that’s not always the case.
In fact, there are more cults than you might think, and the latest data suggests that most of them are the result of misinformation and misperceptions.
The data, from the US National Opinion Research Center, is based on surveys conducted in 2008 and 2009, and it’s one of the first systematic surveys of how cults operate.
The researchers say their findings offer important insight into how a small number of cults spread their ideas and their influence over members.
How is a cult different from a religious cult?
According to the US government, there’s no such thing as a religious sect.
However, according to sociologist Dr Robert L. Mearsheimer, there is a large number of groups that are devoted to cults, but are not actually religious.
For example, many Christians have become disillusioned with their faith and have abandoned it.
Some people in this group, however, see themselves as a part of a more genuine religion.
The US government has created the Department of Religious Freedom, which tries to counter the growing influence of cultists in America.
The Department has also put out a new report that shows that there are still many people in America who don’t see themselves in any way as part of the “religious community”.
How do cults work?
When a group of people gather to believe something, they usually refer to themselves as followers.
In order to have any real influence, you need followers.
However the cult leaders usually have their own group of followers.
They have control over their followers and they can make their own decisions.
The cult also has a leader.
The leader decides what is happening and how it is to be run.
He has to be extremely charismatic, says Dr Mearsheim, who also writes a book about the topic called The Myth of God.
The group may have one leader, but the rest of the followers are divided up into various groups that can have different leaders.
These are the followers.
The leaders usually live a different lifestyle than the followers, who have to work at certain jobs, and they have to live with people who may have been in the group for a long time.
Some cults have a cult-like organisation called a sect.
The members are members of a different group and there is no hierarchy.
These people may also work in some businesses, and there are other ways to organise a cult.
What are the main reasons why people leave cults?
Cult leaders are often people who live in a small town or in a rural area, says Mearsheet.
They may also have a very low social status, say Dr Mearheimer.
Some of them may have poor job prospects, say the sociologist.
If you have a family or a job that doesn’t allow for the cult, you may not have much money to support your family.
This can make you a lot more vulnerable to the lure of the cult.
And some people may be attracted to the cults because they think they have an easy life.
The most popular reason is that the leader makes sure that you have good clothes, clean houses and clean homes.
Other reasons are money, drugs, alcohol, and other things, says Professor James Kallman, who heads the Cultures, Religion and Society Programme at the University of Adelaide.
There are also social problems.
Cults tend to have more problems in rural areas, where people may not feel they belong in a big city or big city suburb, he says.
But the biggest reason for leaving a cult is boredom.
If someone isn’t feeling happy, they might want to go back to their previous lifestyle, says Kallmann.
What do the researchers find?
They found that, in all the surveys, there was no clear pattern to what happened to the members of the different groups.
However there were patterns that were evident.
The study showed that many people became disillusioned and left the group.
Many people were disillusioned, and some of them were killed.
One thing that the researchers also noticed was that the members who had died tended to be older than those who had not.
In some cases, the death of the previous member of the group led to the reformation of the former members, but this was not the case in every case.
Dr Morsheimer says that most people who become disillusioneds, who become followers of a charismatic leader, tend to be white men.
In other words, the researchers found that white men are more likely to leave the cult and become followers.
So, the most common reason for becoming a follower of a cult, according the sociologists, is because it has an easy, comfortable lifestyle.
What is the most dangerous cult?
In terms of the most serious danger to society, Dr Moresheim says that religion, the media and
