COOL CULT 

@mike @vishnu

So, I've had this idea for years.

I want to start a cult.

I wouldn't be the charismatic leader of this cult. I would just be one of the practitioners. The cult would look like many communes and experimental living communities. But, with one significant difference. We ALWAYS refer to it as a cult. I theorize (based on nothing) that a self proclaimed cult would naturally select against those who commonly "ruin" "cults".

I'm VERY curious to hear ppls thoughts on this!

My ego is demanding validation on this post.

"Cool Cult" is a fantastic band name . . .

So it would be like the opposite of the movie Fight club, where the first rule of cool cult would be always talk about cool cult?

Exactly!

And when you describe it to people and they start being uncomfortable and thinking "This sure sounds like a cult"

You just say, "It's a cult. I live in a cult. Do you wanna join my cult?"

For some reason this is hilarious to me, and also seems like it would genuinely repel the worst aspects of cults.

I think I like this idea too much, I am already thinking about logistics.

Like would I want to wear robes and cloaks all the time or just as evening attire. I would need to figure out which flavour of Kool aid I like the most(not spiked of course). Which one is more ominous, a cult located on a farm or an island?

@Bradley
Island cult is CLEARLY more ominous.

But Bradley, we need to be realistic here.

How're we gonna get our hands on an Island?

@Bradley
Look at us finding reasoned compromises already!

We're well on our way to ushering in the utopia!

@JacobTeasdale @mike @vishnu I believe this is precisely the strategy of the Satanist Church.
