I entered the vegan cult compound in small town Arizona about two months ago. There was nothing visually distinguishable about the followers, since they don’t wear a uniform or anything like that, but it was still eery. The theme that brings them all together is that they only eat raw food and believe every single thing their leader tells them about chem trails and other ‘end of the world’ stuff. In fact, he even prescribes things like 90 drops of Iodine to his followers to stop them from getting radiation that he believes has swept all the way over from the recent 3/11 catastrophe in Japan. Yes, you need iodine, but too much iodine over a prolonged period of time is actually lethal. The compound is nestled into the hills of Patagonia, AZ and about an hour’s drive from regular civilization. Cows and bulls run freely around and rattlesnakes are often spotted near the houses that the followers stay in. There is a tiny town about a 5 minute drive from the facility with literally one marshall and one fireman that’s still waiting on a set of Jaws Of Life (kind of scary). Most of the day the people there either do yoga or go on hikes. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served to everyone who isn’t on what they call ‘the green juice’ – which is part of a fast that can last up to 20 days and involves constant enemas. A couple of nights out of the week, the cult’s leader, who is also a doctor, will do different talks in his office. Inside, several screens play back these nauseating randomly generated color bars [see below] that go up and down at a rapid pace; which somehow his followers find relaxing. The underlying scam of the operation is that the cult’s leader prescribes hefty doses of holistic medicine that his patients can only exclusively buy from his company. Fortunately, they aren’t trying to take over the world or make people drink the deathly kool-aid.
