Exactly, cult is a feared word and fear is the greatest weapon for mass control. By spreading fears about Desteni, the system remains in control - we are in essence a threat to the current abusive status quo and as such will be attacked/ defined as 'the worst' so that people that are compliant to respond to fear don't get anywhere close any Desteni material, which implies perfect enslavement kept in place.
Thus, we stand as individuals all around the world, presenting on a daily basis our realizations of everything that is wrong within this world and ourselves and committing each other to stand up and stand self directive to ensure we change the current way everything works - this is thus a powerful living commitment that no one really wants You to know about.
This is why only people that are willing to break-through the veils and comfort of our current make-believe money systems and belief systems will really apply what we're doing and test for themselves if this is 'for real' or not - hence, we stand as solid as the principle we're committing ourselves to live for/as which is life in Equality and this in itself is a force that is immovable.
Supporting ourselves within this realization is of utmost importance, supporting the group to stand against 'all odds' is also important - hence instead of this becoming a 'defense' point toward the cult point, it is a call for common sense to realize how life has never been supported and how there has never before been an organization where the very few at the moment that really care to make a change are living this change as ourselves on a daily basis, and sharing it with the world so that 1 by 1 we start realizing how dumbed down and stupified we have become within accepting this world 'just the way it is.'
