Every Monday, we cover a group ranging from death cults to white supremacist groups that fit our set of criteria. Groups that we consider to be cults often: rally behind a charismatic and controlling leader, require a monetary or physical sacrifice as a requirement to join, follow doctrines that don't apply to their leaders, encourage isolation in a physical or emotional capacity from the outside world, or actively seek to recruit more members. Some cults may have some, or all, of these traits. A perfect way to remember: Don’t Drink the Kool-Aid!
