She is a real kook.

....

“Violence erupted because Jonestown residents believed that Ryan jeopardized their ultimate concern, which was to be in solidarity with all oppressed peoples, but especially with African Americans. He represented the power of the state and its ability to destroy the community.”

.....

“Jones gave no sermons in Jonestown, but instead interpreted international news, directed the Jonestown economy, and gave monologues—or harangues—at Peoples Rallies,” Moore explains. “When religion did come up, it was to criticize it. For example, when Jones exhorted residents to pretend to be ‘in’ the Holy Spirit, he was mocking the Pentecostal roots of the movement. He called Jesus an oppressor of black people. Peoples Temple was no longer a religious organization, at least not in Guyana, but was instead a socialistic utopian experiment.”

.....

“I am convinced that given the right time, the right leader, and the right circumstances,” Moore admits, “I too might have joined a movement like Peoples Temple.”
