Beware. Evil Lurks Around:

Jim Jones
"When the leader lacks confidence, the followers lack commitment." – John C. Maxwell.

Confidence is contagious. It is the new sexy. Very easy to get followership when you exude confidence even for the wrong things. Men and women would have followed you ever before their rational mind kicks in, and not everyone can recover.

History is full of just so many examples for us to ever take this for granted or treat with kid gloves. We have the 1980 Guyana tragedy with Jim Jones, and several other similar cults and sects lurking around seemingly innocently, but working great havoc in the minds of the simple and gullible.

All erstwhile intelligent men and women whose emotions and fear of death has gotten the better. And these perpetrators are specialists in human behavior. They know what and how to prey on their victims. Their confidence and sense of congruency break the hitherto solid defense of their victims.

May God deliver us from such evil people.
