Sun Myung Moon was an addict. He was addicted to power and money. He acquired a great deal of both in his lifetime. The psychological elements he was able to exploit – to feed his addiction – are similar to those utilized by Hitler, Jim Jones, and leaders of Al Qaeda.
Driven by his desire to have more and more power – and more and more money, Sun Myung Moon was able to convince many people, including myself, that he was the manifestation of God and that I/we should devote our lives to him. I would have done ANYTHING for him.
