Anhängarens makt i en ny religiös rörelse - The MOVE Organization

Fiscella, Anthony LU (2007) In Finyar 3-4. p.87-106
Abstract
This article address the means by which early followers can exert influence within a new religious movement. The case study that is used to exemplify potential dynamics in such a situation is that of the MOVE Organization, a group founded in the early 1970s in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by a man known as "John Africa". Instead of focusing on the founder, however, this article examines the role played by the "first follower," Donald Glassey, who helped write and spread the early form of this religion. Specifically, the idea of "follower-power" is applied as a lens to help highlight the dynamics of the charismatic process.
