Stef vs. Keith (Raniere, of NXIVM fame)

Been reading about this case recently. It seems Mr. Raniere was also a huge fan of Ayn Rand. He was also a megalomaniac, who considered himself the "genius" that would save mankind. And he was a highly manipulative snake oil salesman, who ended up making millions off those same members that he was purporting to help with his "philosophy". Anyone else notice any parallels to Stef?

Oh, and then there was misogyny too...

I think there are parallels between all narcissists....which is why the FBI use criminal profiling to catch serial murderers. People who lack empathy and believe they are superior to others tend to behave in similar ways.
If you research other cult leaders, such as Manson, you will find similar behaviour patterns.
