The first of these cults is Christiana Gallagher’s House of Prayer in Achill Co. Mayo. We go undercover to examine the source of her seemingly lavish life style and look at the credibility of some of her “God given” predictions about the future of the world, as well as those running ‘The House of Prayer’ in her name.

Also exposed in the documentary is perhaps the most famous cult of all, ‘Scientology’! We look at their methods of extracting money from new recruits and how they manage to keep members loyal to the cult. We also speak to ex members who have worked within ‘Scientology’ itself and find out what attracts the likes of Tom Cruise to join such a cult!

Finally, we expose perhaps the most mysterious of them all the ‘Palmarians’. ‘Palmarians’ originate in Spain but attract a large number of followers here in Ireland! We look at the cult’s wealth and very strict rule set that can separate children from their parents.  Run time: 45 minutes.

The war on drugs has been going on for more than three decades. Today, nearly 500,000 Americans are imprisoned on drug charges. In 1980 the number was 50,000. Last year $40 billion in taxpayer dollars were spent in fighting the war on drugs. As a result of the incarceration obsession, the United States operates the largest prison system on the planet, and the U.S. nonviolent prisoner population is larger than the combined populations of Wyoming and Alaska. Try to imagine the Drug Enforcement Administration erecting razor wire barricades around two states to control crime and you’ll get the picture.

According to the U.S. Dept of Justice, the number of offenders under age 18 imprisoned for drug offenses increased twelve-fold from 1985 to 1997. The group most affected by this propensity for incarceration is African-Americans. From 1985 to 1997, the percentage of African-American young people put in prison increased from 53 to 62 percent.

Today, 89 percent of police departments have paramilitary units, and 46 percent have been trained by active duty armed forces. The most common use of paramilitary units is serving drug-related search warrants, which usually involve no-knock entries into private homes. Source
