pls i need ur opinion for a research work on the topic:
wat does cultism entails?
Cultism is all about getting something to hold on to obtain some feeling of security. It involves killing and maiming to display power and supremacy. Oaths of secrecy are often taken by members and wierd behaviour adopted by some while you can't even suspect some who appear cool but are very mean.
By posting your question under education, I'll assume you're referring to University cults. It entails nothing. They're pretty much like street gangs. These are young adults showing off exuberance. It's often a mix of miscreants, and others that go with the flow to "belong" and look tough on campus. The bottom line is that the cons far outweigh the pros in joining these gangs. Few members cause all the havoc and everyone is a target if there is "War" on campus, including fringe members. You can get killed in a minute for some dumb misunderstanding and if you're ever arrested by the police, you better hope your parents can close the case. Brotherhood will resume when you get out of jail. In short, the whole idea of cults in Nigeria University is so dumb that once you graduate you'll ask yourself, what was I thinking? The problem is that the lure to join is often so strong for a young impressionable student especially is you're not financially solid to command respect on your own.
