It seems that cults live on fear.

Fear of their impotence against social evils drives them to search for someone to save them.

Fear of the hardcore keep the lower members in line.

And fear of social or physical violence from the cult keep the critics at bay.

The non-egalitarian tribal culture is about its own self preservation.
