"From SoulCycle to Scientology, we're all obsessed with cults. Linguist Amanda Montell examines the language cults use to draw us in" -- Provided by publisher.
What makes cults so intriguing and frightening? What makes them powerful? The reason so many of us binge Manson documentaries by the dozen and fall down rabbit holes researching suburban moms gone QAnon is that we're looking for a satisfying explanation for what causes people to join - and, more important, stay in - extreme groups. We secretly want to know: Could it happen to me? Amanda Montell's argument is that, on some level, it already has. Our culture tends to provide pretty flimsy answers to questions of cult influence, mostly just vague talk of "brainwashing." But the true answer has nothing to do with mind-control wizardry or Kool-Aid. In Cultish, Montell argues that the key to manufacturing intense ideology, community, and an "us/them" attitude all comes down to language. In both positive and shadowy ways, cultish language is something we hear - and are influenced by - every single day. Through juicy storytelling and cutting-edge original research, Montell exposes the linguistic elements that make a wide spectrum of communities cultish, revealing not only how cult language affects followers of groups as notorious as Heaven's Gate but also how it pervades our modern start-ups, fitness brands, and Instagram feeds. Incisive and darkly funny, this enrapturing take on the curious social science of power and belief will make you hear the fanatical language of Cultish everywhere.
