They are not cult like, they are social. As someone who is Autistic, I see it; but, I also try to understand it. People feel their best when they feel accepted. They feel less threatened. Most people just want to get along, enjoy their family, their routine and have a lack of stress. There is nothing evil or cult like about it. In the end, the things they copy from each other are not as important as the amount to which they choose to be themselves.
Non-autistic people generally are not evil. Their single greatest exploitable weakness, however, is their social need to belong to a group.
