I see a pattern:
- The Branch Davidian compound in Waco, TX, lead by cult leader David Koresh, famously raided in 1993.
- The Yearning for Zion Ranch in Eldorado, TX, lead by FLDS cult leader Warren Jessup, famously raided in April of this year.
- The Thoughtful House Center for Children in Austin, TX, founded and directed by Andrew Wakefield, known for attempting to "recover" autistic children with biomedical treatment.
Each group is located in TX. The philosophy of each group is tinged with anti-government conspiracy theories. Each is led by a charismatic leader who inspires near blind faith in their respective followers. Is the biomed movement a cult? Draw your own conclusions.
