Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism by Amanda Montell
I finally read Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism and I loved it. It’s such a fascinating subject, and a quick read!
The book focuses on groups that everyone thinks of when you say Cult like Jonestown and the Manson Family, but it also deals a lot with groups that are cultish, as the author says.
The idea of cultish groups bringing in- and keeping people- because of language was so interesting, and makes complete sense!
Things like Soulcycle and Mary Kay are cultish. It probably won’t ruin your life to leave them, but they have many similarities to more dangerous groups.
Definitely recommend if you are at all interested! And I’m glad I am finally focusing on some of these nonfiction books I own and want to read.
What are things you think are cultish? Have you read this- or will you? 📕
