Cult of the Month Offers Salvation via Digital Subscription
A Kickstarter campaign to support the Cult of the Month has arrived. No need to mark your calendars, Cult of the Month Co-Conspirators already have.
Today ShudderBooks announced the launch of a Kickstarter for the Cult of the Month, which is an app that shares information, histories, and other exciting content from a carefully-curated collection of cults, both real and totally made up. ShudderBooks is a Benefit Corporation incorporated in Minnesota; neither beholden to greedy shareholders, nor bound by byzantine non-profit rules. The purpose of ShudderBooks is Illumination, and ultimately to send the founder on a family road trip around the moon.
The Cult of the Month is more than just an app. It is an organization that consists of all sentient organic beings (SOBs) in the multiverse, both real and imagined. (Welcome to the club. You’ve been a member your whole lives.) The Kickstarter is to create an app that will automatically inform members of the new Cult of the Month, which changes on the 23rd of each month. Members will be able to learn all kinds of fun facts about these various cults, and take part in activities. They are strongly encouraged to test out the various aspects of each cult, kick the tires, and incorporate their favorite parts into their own personal religious expression. Mix and match! Collect them all!
The Cult of the Month as a corporate entity takes the notion of Corporations as People very seriously, and as such clings to it’s “Deeply Held” Belief Systems (BS). ShudderBooks BS is in line with whatever BS the Featured Cult of the Month has as it’s BS at the time. ShudderBooks BS will, of course, change each month to reflect the teachings of each individual cult. There is one exception to this rule, however. Regardless of which cult happens to be featured as Cult of the Month, ShudderBooks maintains that it is the proud patriotic duty of all corporations to pay taxes, as it is a fairly minor cost for civilization. Also, it is much less work to do so than to apply for tax-exempt status, particularly when the details change every month.
