Diane Richardson on Mind-Control

The notion of "Mind-control" is a central notion in the cult issue. It has, among other things, been used by anticultists to justify the kidnapping and forcible deprogramming of cult members.

In September 1996, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see that at least one critic, Diane Richardson, started to question this "a.r.s. fact". Diane was one of the a.r.s. poster who, in the past, brilliantly counter-argued the anti-psychiatry argument of the Scientologists. She was largely praised by critics for her research ability and debating skill. When she started to question the mind-control notion, however, some a.r.s. posters began to display extremely interesting manifestations of the same cultic mindset as the one to be found among their cultic counter-parts. This is one of the thing I intent to show by summarizing the threads involved. These threads, indeed, offer not only a theoretical interest on the mind-control issue itself, easy to assimilate through its debating form, but they also offer an interesting study of the psychological elements involved in the mindset of the anti-Scientology "true believers".
