Two men have been expelled (ostracized) from Gloriavale cult, for daring to feel free to use cellphone.
One man, aged 34, who was in possession of a phone (which are deemed contraband), is been expelled and therefore separated from his wife and seven children,including a baby
Another man,aged in his 20s ,who had borrowed this phone, to use it himself, has also been expelled as well too, he is separated from two children including a baby
The cult leaders don’t like Gloriavale cult members having freedom to use phones, for fear that using them, might then help Gloriavale members open their own minds
So you more or less don’t even own your own mind
The leaders see cellphone as a key tool to help enlighten people ?
Do they rather keep them confused and ignorant?
All sorts of authoritarian dictatorships will use much the same method. Won’t they?.While members lack freedom of knowledge of the outside world.How will they learn any different?. How will they be able to know any better than the propaganda they are more or less being force fed?
How much different to this is it then https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictatorship
Would a personalist dictatorship, description, perhaps be fairly close enough match?
I still remember,back, to how i had once felt myself .We were not allowed much contact with the world outside.No access to tv or radio or company with our non eb neighbor.No right to join sports clubs,or visit beaches,or go on holiday where we might miss out going to church every day, and all day long on Sundays
Meanwhile we were continually force fed with propaganda, so as to reinforce ideas in our confused minds about how evil the non eb worldly people are (just like what counties run by dictators, also will do as well too.So the population wont know any better) .
There were no cell phones back in those days.But if we ever even got spotted watching a tv , in a window, at some shop within a local shopping mall.
It would get us in big trouble.With the leaders.Any wannabe aspiring leaders would happily snitch on you . As they would then be treated like angels . While you, the so called sinner, would be treated like some devilish evil spirit
It was pretty much like
living existing within confines of a faith gang
Freedom of conscience ? … pfffffffffffttttt
No such luck .
Entitlement to make up your own mind, as to whether outsiders were evil people or not ?
Don’t even dare to question (well make sure nobody knows, you are, if you decide to try. Hide that cell phone, don’t dare let any cult snitch wannabe aspiring faith gang prospect leader,spot you)
You may lose your entitlement to loving contact with your wife and children
If you dare
Meanwhile outsiders,mostly dont even hardly bother to bat an eyelid . Because it doesnt concern their own lives
Even if you might be losing sleep. Worrying about how to leave, without losing your wife and children .Maybe your grandparents and cousins as well too
Perhaps you might as well be living in Uzbekistan?
At least you’ll mix more freely within the country you live
Gloriavale demands entitlement to chunks of worldly people’s tax money that the government holds. To use wisely
But they wont allow their own people to be entitled to use cell phones
Somethings mighty unfair and wrong
