Any cult needs to cut off it’s believers from their fundamental Rights such as free speech, enhanced independence of the individual (e.g. weapons, vehicles), movement, due process at law etc.

The Left hand path of the dialectic is usually used to remove these Rights. The Right hand will return them in a watered down, ineffectual form as ‘privileges’ that only the State can grant or revoke.

Once the cult population has accepted the idea in principle and acclimatized, a new round of oppression can be introduced to a muted level of resistance.
