I agree that something was fishy about the Branch Davidian incident. However, I wonder...if David Koresh knew too much, then what was it that
he knew and how did he obtain this information?
Just my 2-cents
He knew how to run a cult. He had great Charisma, and could quote tons of verse from the bible off the the top of his head.
Could put him right up there with Jim Jones in my Book.
He could/should have let all the children out. But he ws an egomaniac, and fathered many children with other men of his cults wives. Sound
Was it hadled well by the PTB, definitely not.
However, something needed to be done. Or we would have more than likely seen complete elimination of the Branch Dividians at thier own hands, the more
and more narcisistic Koresh became. They woulda been passing around the Kool-Aid probably no more than 5 years after the trajic events at Waco.
It was terrible what he did to those children. A childs mind is like a clean slate, and if you continue to tell them for example "purple skinned"
people are evil we should hate them, and not rae mix with them. Then use your superior inteliigence to only show them examples of purple people
behaving badly. Well these children are gonna grow up to hate "purple people".
There's nothing more I hate than forcing religion, and racism down childrens throats, let alone teaching minors how to use guns and telling them that
police are the enemy, and feeding them nightmares of doomsday scenarios, where by only doing what the Narcisistic cult leader will get you into
heaven, and "God's" good graces.
As far as the grown-ups, they are usually weak minded, lost souls who are just looking for something, and usually toward the end realize this isn't
what they signed up for, (giving my wife over to this guy), some can get out, some can't.
Thanks goodness Koresh did let a good amount of children go, (the ones that weren't his by blood), and I've seen interviews with them all grown up
now, and most of them, whilehaveing fond memories, of not going to school, and homeschooling, and playing. The majority of them despise Koresh.
