Granfalloon..a feeling of them..and us.
A cult tactic,i learnt that by reading the Orange Papers.
When i read about it i instantly identified from my years in AA,the term "normal people" was always used,i seldom went to a meeting where i didn't hear it.
As a disturbed and lost young person it reassured me in some way,i think it was the thought that the people "outside" were different..and that the people around me were like me,my family..this is exactly what i was seeking at the time,reassurance,love and most of all acceptance.
i was like the fly and the spider web.
