Thanks for posting Tuneman's link. I haven't been able to download this new documentary at the BBC/TV4 website because of where I live.

It's one heck of a powerful documentary--very well done artistically. Also accurate and insightful without being sensational. The testimonies given by those who lived with Rick in the royally pedophilic household are chilling and believable. The testimonies of first-hand witnesses also go a long way toward explaining how pedophilia was institutionalized in Family homes outside Berg's household.

The claim that Karen Zerby had sexual intercourse with Rick as an adolescent explains his inconsolate rage as an adult to me. For this reason, I appreciated a point raised by Daniel Roselle regarding TFI women who engaged in the molestation and rape of children. Women perpetrating on children is a fairly rare occurence, and among Systemites it typically happens in a passive, colluding and coerced manner. What occurred between Berg's entourage of "revolutionary" women and the children in their care is a unique case in the study of pedophilia.
