Before its demise (rather ironically on the eve of Halloween, 1996-OCT-31), the "old" Cult Awareness Network sold a series of books that reflected the concepts of the anti-cult movement. i.e. that new religious groups:
bullet Entrapped unsuspecting youth.
bullet Brainwashed them so that they lost their free will and were unable to resist the group's message.
bullet Held them in a form of mental captivity, perhaps involving restricted diets, limited sleep, long work schedules, etc.
bullet Cynically exploited them to work for the group.
