Social Justice (Jonestown Forum )

. For your initial response, write a detailed paragraph to address EACH of the following two questions:
 
1)           How was conformity used to convince temple members to take poison? Explain.  Was this conformity or threat?  Explain. To what extent was disagreement tolerated? Refer to Jeanne Mills and Deborah Blakey.  Finally, discuss the temples attitude about defecting, and experiences of defectors?
 
2)         How were potential members persuaded? Provide examples. Who was the upper echelon of the Peoples Temple? And how were they persuaded? Again, provide specifics and examples. What could cause people to kill their children and themselves (self-justification)?
