First Shakers were of a religion that was you had to recruit.

“One obvious reason for the sect’s decline is that unlike other Utopian communities, it was not marriage-based, and thus did not renew its numbers with children born into families. Because Shakers were celibate, their communities could grow only by constantly bringing in new converts, but as the nineteenth century progressed, new converts were harder to come by. “

Can’t keep going with a sales pitch like that.
