  a. Map = Reality
  b. Black and White thinking
  c. Good vs. evil
  d. Us vs. them (inside vs. outside)

2. Adopt "loaded" language (characterized by "thought-terminating clichés"). Words are the tools we use to think with. These "special" words constrict rather than expand understanding. They function to reduce complexities of experience into trite, platitudinous "buzz words".

they tell us if we don't believe as they do then they want nothing to do with us,,,, we haven't seen or heard from our oldest son, his girlfriend and our grandson since November of 2012,,,, we were kicked out of where they were living, because it was suggested they were being brain washed,,, they told us then that David Stanley said our grandson was full of pity, a brat and cried all the time, but David Stanley fixed him,,, they wouldn't tell us what was meant by this,,,, they also told us they were dead to us,,,,,,, our youngest had texted me but it was always questioning our love for him,,,, he said "do you like your way where your sons hate you ? or do you like my way where you have love with your sons?" ~ the only way i know to answer this is I love you no matter what.

Emotional
Control
1. Manipulate and narrow the range of a person's feelings.

2. Make the person feel like if there are ever any problems it is always their fault, never the leader's or the group's.

3. Feeling-stopping. Like thought-stopping, this is the automatic suppression or blocking of feelings that are not acceptable by the cult identity- such as feeling "homesick" or feeling "depressed" or feeling "resentful".

4. Excessive use of guilt
  a. Identity guilt
    1. Who you are (not living up to your potential)

  f. Fear of disapproval

6. Extremes of emotional highs and lows.

7. Ritual and often public confession of "sins".

8. Phobia indoctrination: programming of irrational fears of ever leaving the group or even questioning the leader's authority. The person under mind control cannot visualize a positive, fulfilled future without being in the group.
  a. No happiness or fulfillment "outside"of the group
  b. Terrible consequences will take place if you leave: "hell"; "demon possession"; "incurable diseases"; "accidents"; "suicide"; "insanity"; "10,000 reincarnations"; etc.
  c. Shunning of leave takers. Fear of being rejected by friends, peers, and family.
  d. Never a legitimate reason to leave. From the group's perspective, people who leave are: "weak"; "undisciplined"; "unspiritual"; "worldly"; "brainwashed by family, counselors"; seduced by money, sex, rock and roll.

they always tell us we didnt do anything right to raise them,,,, david stanley is the only one who knows what real love is,,, we did everything wrong
