Need to reintroduce civility to the conversation.

Remember that people can get involved with cult movement for community, due to fear...

Approach them from a place of compassion.

First, goal is to get them to re-engage with you, not deprogram.
@digitalsista @Janja_Lalich @RBernsteinLMFT @_indoctrination From @Janja_Lalich
Began work due to personal experience in a political cult ~30 y.a.

Once out of that, found therapy to address after effects, returned to do doctorate work on subject.

"I have never been busier..."

We're seeing cults on a national scale, which is new

(2 of 4)
The Latin American community is being targeted to get disinfo from the platforms here in the US AND from their home country. They're building ecosystems to push the online info on Spanish radio, TV and Newspapers as well. @vcardenasDC #NN21

In the Asian American community there are a lot of accounts being created to sow division among the groups they're pretending to represent. They're infiltrating the MANY channels to cause chaos and division. @GloPan #NN21

PR is one of "the LAST standing colonies" in the world.

#NN21 Keynote: Rebalancing The Supreme Court: Why Progressives Must Take Back the [Stolen] Court to Save our Democracy with @SenTinaSmith @MondaireJones @RepBarbaraLee & Sarah Lipton-Lubet of @TakeBacktheCt. (via @actdottv) twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
We have a 6/3 far right hyper-partisan super majority. It is hostile to democracy itself. Policies that are enormously popular across the spectrum are at risk of not being in the #BuildBackBetter Act because of corporate power. -- @MondaireJones #NN21
"I was stunned but I wasn't surprised" - @TinaSmithMN on the Texas ban. She has supported #ExpandTheCourt for years. The Federalist Society has had a multi-generational plan to take over our courts. "We have to get to 13 members to restore balance." We must #TakeBackTheCourt
