Freeman Offers Laughter as Anecdote to Cult Mind Control
“Now my concern is not whether or not I can help liberate my readers from cults, but whether I will kill them with laughter…” Pierre S. Freeman
Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum Offers New Twist to Exit Counseling
Pierre S. Freeman, the noted occult whistleblower and author of two books exposing the controversial teachings of AMORC, The Prisoner of San Jose and AMORC Unmasked, now happily explores a new tool in the arsenal of defense against cult brainwashing- laughter, the deployment of which abounds in his new short work of fiction, “Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum,” Part 1 “Mayhem on the Astral Highway.”
Pierre S. Freeman who, since his exit from a religious cult, has spent years of effort writing books and blogging about the dangers of Mind Control but now has suddenly taken a surprising U-turn in his approach. His new book, “Mind Slaves of the Rosikrucian Collectorum,” Part 1 “Mayhem on the Astral Highway,” will help interested readers to take a walk on the light side when exploring the deadly Mind Control of religious cults.
“Somewhere in the past,” says Freeman. “I had heard about Norman Cousin, the famous editor of the Saturday Review and the author of quite a few books, some of which were based on his discovery of laughter as a way of ameliorating the severe pain he was experiencing due to some kind of arthritis. Indeed, he said laughter had a powerful curative effect on his condition.”
The case of author/journalist, Norman Cousins, who healed himself by watching Marx Brothers’ films, is widely known. So are his excited statements when he made “the joyous discovery that ten minutes of genuine belly laughter had an anesthetic effect and would give me at least two hours of pain-free sleep.”
“When I reflected on this,” Freeman says thoughtfully, “I had to ask myself- could laughter affect one’s mental conditioning when belonging to a cult? Would it dare someone to take a quick look at the absurdity of many of the practices and claims they were experiencing in a religious cult? So I have created a way to test my new theory by providing members of all kinds of cults- or their families- or friends or people actually contemplating one of them- with a humorous look at religious cults. In fact, I even prescribe my book for people who are just interested in taking a different look at cult behavior- apart from the endless TV programs on Jim Jones or Charles Manson, Or- to be brutally honest, to anyone who wants a good laugh.”
