An organization which deceives stupid and insecure people (usually middle-aged loners who've never had a boyfriend/girlfriend) by promising them importance or power if they dedicate their meaningless lives to serving them (ex. promising their members eternal salvation).

In reality, cults only care about making money or gaining political power for their leaders, and have no remorse about exploiting and intimidating their members in the process. Cults are basically like evil corporations, only much, much eviler and dangerous.

To understand the psychology of a cult member, first:

1. Picture some uneducated, unmarried middle-aged loser who works 50 hours a week at Wal-Mart for 8 bucks an hour, and tells everyone how much he loves his job and how nice his bosses are, and is willing to rat you out if he hears you say anything negative about your job. Creepy right?

2. Now, picture a person who is the equivalent of the guy above, but does the same work for FREE, or worse yet, even PAYS out of his OWN POCKET for the "privilege" of doing work for his organization (aka his cult).

This is the psychology of a cult member - they are literally the lowest common denominator of society. Essentially, they are the "teacher's pet" kid who annoyed the hell out of everyone in 3rd grade, and never outgrew this psychology even in adulthood. Avoid cult members at all costs, they are at best, delusional, and at worst, downright sociopaths.
900 members of the Jim Jones cult killed themselves and their children at his request - can you imagine any sane person doing that?
