4. You get a lot of that in 12 step programs...

Lots of drunk-a-logs and drug-a-logs that stretch credulity. Many people sharing their stories are sincere, but some are just there for the attention, and those usually drift off elsewhere eventually.

There's a reason they call them "flocks" and the preachers "shepards." Authoritarians come in two flavors. One type wants to lead, and the other types craze leadership, often no matter how dysfunctional and disreputable it might be. Like they say, sheep exist to be fleeced.
