This series of Factnet posts features an exhaustive summary of a rare book by a former leading member of the LaRouche operation in Australia named Don Veitch. Veitch shows in great detail the way the organization functioned and, in particular, the way LaRouche's early 1970s “Beyond Psychoanalysis” texts were employed to organize the Australian group as a cult. Veitch also highlights the role played by Al Douglas, the “American controller” of the LaRouche operation in Australia which operated as the Citizens Electoral Council (CEC).

The greatest number of posts are by “Hylozoic Hedgehog” who summarizes the Veitch book in detail. However, the posts include the text from an article from the British journal Searchlight as well as a brief memoir by a former leading member of the Australian CEC. They also mention Robert Pash, a strange Australian supporter of Libya with whom the LaRouche group maintained ties with in the late 1980s.
