How about this line from Buffalo Bill as a masterpiece of cognitive dissonance:
"I'm not asking much from you. I'm just asking that you be willing to die rather than leave this house."
Chuckie on their doomsday literature...it would be funny if it weren't so freaky. Kind of reminds me of the crucified baby on an ML from the 1970s.
It's interesting how people hang on after each failed doomsday prophesy. There's a famous social psychology study from the 1950s that explains the phenomenon of cognitive dissonance. It's called When Prophesy Fails.
