Adaption A- Starting a cult

" A cult is generally, it is a group that is unorthodox, esoteric, and has a devotion to a person, object, or a set of new ideas." To come up with ideas for the info-graphic, i have started to research cults and how they work. Some cults seems somewhat tame , which I didn't really think it would be interesting for the purpose of the info-graphic, of course the opposite exists with some terrible cults brain washing there members. I picked up a book called strange cults in-order to find out more about cults. This is where i found the funny side of cults, but i also found some more extreme violent cults which can be possibly used to some comedic  effect. It is interesting to note that some cults throughout history have had powerful members, an example being the free masons with George Washington . With the astigmatism placed on cults, the free masons seemed to be one of the more positive organisations, standing for the liberty of freedom, but there seems to still be a seedy underbelly of this cult. The problem with cults is that without doing any prior research on the topic it is very easy to believe that's cults are purely negative. The angle I have decided to go for is informative about both positive and negative aspects of cults. In terms of style and delivery I think I will look to comedic videos that appear serious but are actually satirical, similar to jello apocalypses (see below)
