A deeply sad story. One wonders what has become of the author's five children. Without him in the household, have the fences trapping them in this absurd lifestyle been built even higher around them?

Exactly what I was thinking. I read the entire article, and, while the author did seem very concerned with the stifling nature of the lifestyle for his own sake, he never once mentioned the well-being of his children. I actually wondered as I read it if this wasn't an exaggeration or a completely made-up story. It seems to me so unlikely that these cult lifestyles are able to continue to exist while immersed in the 'modern' world.
