You get all sorts of cults religious, even political ones. Here's a post of mine from April 2007:I was thinking 'publicity stunt gone too far'. But of course I could be completely wrong.
Perhaps despite everything I can't grasp how women would be 'persuaded' into such a cult against their will. I know some of the women who attach themselves to bikers have problems, but this is a different sector of society altogether.

Great book. It also covers Marlene Dixon, the Christian Identity movement, Posse Commitatus, Scientology, Synanon, and Aryan Nation. Additionally, the book discusses actions of Trotskyist groups in the United Kingdom particularly those led by Ted Grant (Miltant)and Gerry Healy (WRP).
I have the chapter on Militant/Ted Grant in e format (its also got an extra 1,200 words than the published version). I think i'll publish it here as I have the permission of Dennis Tourish to do so.
The chapter on Militant/Ted Grant is at: https://books.google.ie/books?id=mE...age&q=The Lonely Passion Of Ted Grant&f=false
The expanded chapter is gone AWOL.
