I think the cult mindset is fascinating and terrifying. I would like to watch this, but I'm also sort of afraid to.

I always feel uncomfortably embarrassed by people.

"I had to listen as my daughters' backbones broke one by one."

Yeah.... I think this documentary might be too dark even for my taste.
kamlem
Dark? The first half of the film is just one anecdote like that after another. The one that stopped me in my tracks was a escapee recounting the beatings administered by her polygamist husband, and commenting that the extra painful part of the experience was that he did it in front of her many children and other wives offspring. After she breaks down crying, a voice from off camera clarifies that the husband made the older children not just watch, but hold her down, while he abused her.

Dark. As in: bleak, depressing, evil, horrible.

Anyone know where I can watch this film?

Amazon

Or don an eyepatch.

I found a full documentary on the subject available for streaming for free.

Damned to Heaven (2008)
http://www.cultureunplugged.com/play/4688/Damned-to-Heaven

I haven't watched it yet, but if it half as horrifying and illuminating as this documentary, I will put it in the hopper.

Also, an emmy award winning documentary on the subject, "Colorado City and the Underground Railroad", here...

Mike Watkiss is a reporter that clearly is passionate about this subject. He is still focusing on this issue on his youtube channel.

Again, I will submit after I watch it if suitable.

NOTE: This is not who conservatives have in mind when they talk about "parasites leeching off of the government" although I bet a few of them have their own Obamaphones.

I humbly suggest "bleed the beast" as a tag, and hope it becomes a linked tag as soon as reasonably possible.

If you ever wanted a concrete reason why libertarians and teabaggers are evil, this is pretty much the end game of doing away with "big government".

It's been too long since a tank was driven through a church on American soil.
