Yes, I've also read the stuff you mentioned, and it is all extremely interesting.

I guess TF is a function of "you can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time".

Also, TF WAS (and of course still is) it's own culture--an elaborate religious construct (and I personally believe it was directly influenced demonically) built aorund Berg's lifelong self-justification of his incest, lust for power and so on.

Jesus said, with extreme irony, that 'The children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light". Berg and his hierarchy were singularly interested, IMO, in acquiring, consolidating, and maintaining personal power at any cost--even their souls (No, I'm not Calvinist).

The chief idol, the false prophet, produced others, who, "having eyes, do not see", and so forth, and the closer to Berg you were, the more a "child of hell" he had crossed land and sea to make of you.

All you need as an evil leader is enough people to stick around to maintain your "accustomed level of living".

A bit of what I'm writing is, of course, tongue-in-cheek. I seriously hate the lies and the hurt as much as all do here.

My heart continues to go out to all who were hurt; my prayers and thoughts are with you.
