I have seen that mentioned among friends in Social Media. I guess that is why I was reminded of a cult bad event when I saw this gentleman across the news this morning:
“I’m a Christian and it really upsets me to see God’s creation being wrecked.”#ExtinctionRebellion @CClimateAction activist Phil Kingston, 83, who has superglued himself to the DLR at Shadwell. This will be his 13th arrest pic.twitter.com/oH57nwAoud

I guess the power of suggestion made my brain rattle the memory files and after seeing this guy, I was reminded of the leader of the Heaven’s Gate cult.
For those who don’t know/remember, Heaven’s Gate was cult that believe death was the only way to leave the planet and be transported to a spaceship flying behind the Hale-Bopp comet flying nearby Earth back then.
I might be totally off and influenced by my own doing, but I would not be surprised if we see destructive behavior coming out of the Extinction Rebellion members and that very well include Homicide and Suicide. Big honchos with “Non-Clean” Energy companies have to be targets, but I would not put it pass them if they take out gas station attendants for selling that poison that makes car run. That or other low-level people associated with whatever they believe is killing the planet. Imagine Earth First! with Jihadist determination.
One thought on “Extinction Rebellion maniacal fervor: Cult behavior?”
Homicide would be bad, but I can’t see any reason to object to suicide. Far from it — that would be improving the species.
