The final episode of How To Become A Cult Leader is about bringing to the table all the playbook rules and merging them into one singular cult leader who managed to follow all of them and was successful in executing them. His execution worked in his favor for years later; his legacy still sustains him, and the man is considered a spiritual leader of the highest order.

Sun Myung Moon, the leader of the Unification Church, ran the organization for sixty years without any hitch or scandal rocking the organization to its core. The followers of the Unification Church, also known as Moonies, remain an influential religious group long after the death of their leader. The group was functioning in such a manner that people from the outside had no reason to doubt their intentions, even though there was corruption that was not brought to the forefront.

The saga of Sun Myung Moon started when he was hardly 15- or 16 years old when the man claimed that Jesus appeared to him and chose him to fulfill his mission of imparting family values to the group. The group was also known for carrying out mass church marriages, which led to their leader claiming that Jesus failed to get married, and it was Moon who was assigned by the Messiah to facilitate this blessed act on a large scale.

The Unification Church only worked because the 1970s were the age of cults in the United States of America. Every nook and cranny of the country had a running cult that would cater to a diverse group of people. The Unification Church catered to a conservative group that believed in a strong familial system and was against communism. There were congregations and events in thousands that were being carried out all around the country. Carrying out such large-scale events that mirror rock concerts will remind viewers how Jim Jones did the same to attract a crowd to his People’s Temple. The difference here would be that the moonies were not manipulated into creating hysteria. The Unification Church carried out its manipulation subtly.
