I'm always interested in the BBC Storyville programmes and one I watched this evening was a particular eye-opener.
How people can be swept into the vortex of cult religions is something I really can't understand, least of all, travelling halfway around the world to hear a crackpot announcing that he is the Lamb of God.
Is it the perceived divine force of the speaker or the tangled unhappy paths trodden by the listeners, people who need a leader, need direction and will do anything, go anywhere, give up anyone, to reach the dangled carrot?
The programme: Waco...Madman or Messiah?
It's a sobering thought, that one person can bend (and destroy) the lives of so many.
