...Believer” What are the driving forces of fanatic mass movements? Eric Hoffer examines the nature of mass movements in his book, “The True Believer.” His arguments are not value-neutral, because his viewpoints on mass movements depict his beliefs about the nature of humanity, which directly impact the nature of mass movements. Hoffer's understanding of mass movements come from the view of human nature as being predisposed to fanaticism, violence, and uniformity, not because humans are truly collective organisms, but because they have something missing inside them, and hence, mass movements are paradoxically selfish and self-serving.

...believer. Darkness is symbolic of ignorance and death. The lit candle can illuminate for the believer the path of life. (Thurston, 1908) Let the student brainstorm other symbolic function of candle in the Christian faith. Candles can be symbolic of love. The warmth they generate can be felt during a marriage ceremony. The bride and groom often light a candle at this time to symbolize their love. Their closeness, just like the flame, can produce both warmth and pain. Let the student think further by letting them discuss the origin of light and its symbolic effect on our life. Jesus himself claimed to be the "Light of the World" (John 8:12).
