Incremental Changes and Frankenstein's Video on Brainwashing...

On the "thatmom" website, the topic of love bombing brought up some issues regarding how to differentiate between genuine Christian love and the "love bomb." It's not very easy because it is subtle. You essentially do not recognize what has happened until you are required to comply. This is subtle also.

That brings up another point that I mentioned in the "thatmom" discussion regarding incremental changes -- something discussed in this both silly and serious video. This information comes from Biderman, one of Robert Lifton's contemporaries who wrote about the same time that Lifton did as a result of working with the survivors of the Korean War. He highlighted the significance of the incremental cooperation that takes place in Spiritual Abuse.

Enjoy! (???)
