NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere used some of the same manipulation tactics used by 1950s cult leaders, says cult deprogrammer

In recent years, the world has been shocked to learn of a group called NXIVM, a cult involving sex slaves. However, this was more than just another true crime story. The victims of the cult leaders were truly harmed to the point where they were literally branded. Although the cult’s structure and mysteries were new, the strategies they used to persuade their followers were not. According to one expert, they have been used for generations.

Who is Keith Raniere and what was NXIVM?

According to insiders, NXIVM was originally presented as a multi-level marketing company providing self-help guides. The organization was founded in 1998 by Keith Raniere and Nancy Salzman. Over the next two decades, the group offered classes to around 18,000 people, some paying as much as $7,500 per session. But in 2012, experts began accusing NXIVM of being a cult.
