    I was involved with the Toronto, ON, Canada Church of Scientology for a brief 2 weeks in the summer of 1970. They convinced me that once I was “CLEAR” ( with no reactive mind ) then I could see how all of was a Game. For the Scientologist, all people outside thee org are ‘preclears’ and therefore not responsible for their actions. Actions that are predominantly destructive . They quickly lost interest in me as I had little money and no desire to go into debt for courses.
    Any actions taken to defeat the police, or journalists or any preclears who are attempting to damage Scientology is justified : no considerations for ethics, the truth or dirty tricks. As long as the action resulted in the Scientologist winning the ‘Game’ then the cleverer the ploy the better !
    These people are very damaging to decent, good natured human beings. Amazing how a character that everyone KNEW was a former science fiction writer could convince some many intelligent folks that THETONS came from other planets in the universe ( explaining the extra people on earth with reincarnation). Power over others is their ultimate narcotic. It’s a wonder that they have only been outlawed in Australia. Talk above the devolution of the human psyche !

      Non-scientologists are called WOGS! It’s in their “Technical Dictionary”.The harm these people do to well meaning seekers is literally criminal,the governments that permit and enable this are also culpable.The sad irony is that the freedom people are seeking is right under their noses,is free,and simple to attain.

    Excellent short doc. Scientology is a scary, money-sucking cult invented by a clever madman and carried on by an abusive madman. I pity those entwined in it, and am thankful I’ve learned about it so I will never become an unsuspecting victim.

    The damage that this organization does to people…in the name of religion…is frightening. I am currently reading “Going Clear” by Lawrence Wright, which details the “church” from its beginning through the present. The way followers allow themselves to be treated by “church” leaders is alarming.

      I agree 100 percent! I started out reading the book by Amy, and am now on about my 6th book! I can’t stop reading about these unfortunately vulnerable people, and what they let these people get away with. Read anything you can get your hands on by ex members…..you will think you can’t be shocked any more, and then……BAM! Another wave hits you….another good one to look into is the Children of God. Now called The Family. More filth. Only with child sexual molestation with these sickos……: (
