Tenses[change source]

There is a tense problem - part of the article is written as though cargo cults are historical and no longer exist and part is written as though they are current. Which is it? Either way, the tenses need to be standardized. --Philosopher Let us reason together. 21:32, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

As far as I can tell (I am no expert), most cargo cults tend to be a passing experience. they are active for a few years, then interest in them fades; this does however not seem to apply to the John Frum movement, which seems more permanent; read Vailala Madness on en, the basis for our article for possibly the first cargo cult. --Eptalon (talk) 21:42, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
