What To Do When Approached By Cultists by Emmiasky(m): 4:44pm On Dec 11, 2019

Know Your Stance
People need to know where they stance on the whole act of cultism, many people join when approached is because they didn’t keep a correlation plot with cultism and the other problems faced, hold on their stand or they never even had a position on CULTISM to begin with, keeping a tab on your values, understanding the things you want and those you don’t would surely help you decipher between what you should be doing and what you should not and if in anyway getting involved in cultism is one of the things you placed your stand on that you won’t be joining, know this within you in your heart and mind that you will never join because ‘the sweet talks can be really tempting’ and can be ideology-bending – having to not read or work for good results is not something many students really would love to drop for the stress of lectures and so much other life-shaping activities faced in school and life.
Give An Ambivalent Answer
Some certain sets get the option of choice when approached with the pledge and when this is so, the best way to get out of that situation right there is to leave an answer that would not mean Yes, I want to join and accept all the gifting the three dark-wise men from the east come bearing or a No, I am not interested in your occult – you guys can leave my room now, Thank You! – and the reason is that the former already puts you in cage, to them you’ve accepted and this is seriously bad for business as continuously, you’ll keep getting invited for secret meetings, initiations, jobs and failure to show up for these things makes one a rogue and to them, such an offence is usually the capital punishment, the latter on the other hand is worse off as you could get beaten to a pulp, killed, threatened and forced to join in on what you don’t so leaving the blank void is the best way to escape such a ghastly situation.
When asked the big question it’s best to not pick an option between life (death) and death, just leave them hopeful but not optimistic as regards your answer. You may tell them you want to test the waters and see what’s going on, you’re new to the system and would get back to them later.
Communicate Right but Not Rudely
Cultists want people to fear them, they feed on this fright people have for them and at every given opportunity, use it to mar, molest and hunt them.
Appearing fearful of the men in your company is a sign which shows to them you’re a weakling and that alone might even smear you beatings by the crew without you rejecting their offer, appearing natural and your unperturbed self however puts yourself and them on a negotiation seat and things can go a little more sane – forcing your will on them however is not an advisable thing to do and the beating might still come into play.
The whole idea is to see these guys as mates you don’t know seeking information from you and not as Zeus’ or Hades’ descendants making a request from you.
Inform a higher figure or an authoritative figure
As indicated earlier in the article that of most cases, one major problem students face is that they do not usually know who to run for help when such cases arise and this abruptly leads them to making wrong decision. Meeting up with a higher figure, a lecturer, it might even be a senior in the school who has had such experiences and discussing with them is one way help can arrive faster.
However, individuals should understand that most cults usually trail their targets, especially pending ones as such to confirm whether or not such an individual is trying to sell them out and it would be wise to be extra careful with who you meet and where you meet them during this period.
It’s might be who you don’t know or who you even know who might be your monitor and shares information on what you do, who you meet and what you discuss even.
N.B: I am not sure if such a facility is available but if so, students should meet up with counselors who’re working directly with a dept on cultism affairs.
Ensure the Safety of Relations
Not everyone gets the free hand when approached with cultists, some (more) get threatened with death, beating, unwanted visit of their families, friends on campus and so on if they don’t comply with their demands, and this puts such individuals in an unsettled position which destabilize them, what’s best in such a maze is to ensure is that one’s relations are safe before taking other actions, whether it includes getting policemen to handle the task or school authorities to take it up, ensuring the safety of those who mean dearly to you is one thing that must be done.
Involving Law Enforcement Agencies
This is one advantage people have but under-utilize as most cults do not want to have things to do with the Law and its agencies, involving them in your lives and ensuring they (the group) sees this is going to be a smart move, however, you need to ensure it is not a threat to them as this would only cause more ruckus and problems.
