Holy Hell (2016)
Chris Johnston: There's this social interplay that happens between highly codependent people and pathological narcissists. Who is going to give a person who needs constant adoration and attention, who is going to give that to them, ceaselessly? Somebody who relies on him as the source of their self-esteem. And they'll say, "You seem like a normal, rational, intelligent human being. How did this happen to you?"... It's what we do every time we come into a religion. We take on their beliefs as truth. You will do anything to defend that truth. You subjugate your best interests to the interests of the religion, the group, the corporation... And so, the better you feel, the more you get committed. And then, somebody can get you to do anything. I mean, I would have killed or died for him. It's so common, it's everywhere. Look around you, you've got a cult in your town, I almost guarantee you.
