Hello , I am an ex Scientologist , this blog is primarily about that but I may address other topics as the mood hits me to . I was in Scientology for 25 years and spent about 10,000 hours using the indoctrination and thought reform method "study tech " . I also spent time on staff and met hundreds of Scientologists and did hundreds of the cult practices . Many were the "ethics cycles and OW writeups " that really are an attempt to suppress or remove a person's identity and replace it with a mental pseudo clone of Ron Hubbard . To make a fanatical slave for the cult .

I looked outside the cult for answers in about January 2014 and left the cult in about March of 2014 . While in about 99% of members have no idea of the truth .

We are told we are in a mental therapy or spiritual enhancement or religion or science for helping people unlock potential . Or any of several other fronts that all pretend kind and humanitarian goals .

The truth is Scientology is a terrorist mind control cult and this blog is my attempt to understand and expose that . And try to state as clearly as possible the tools that I have found helpful in dealing with this .

My Endless Fascination and Wonder

I love and treasure the little hints and peaks behind the curtain we get from Tony Ortega on his personal feelings and beliefs. The other day he had the op ed piece on lunkheads  - Continue reading Scientology: Making fools of your local elected lunkheads since 1952  - that showed his feelings and in interviews lately he has let his hair down a bit and showed his personal opinions.  Continue reading Just two blocks from Scientology’s LA headquarters, Paulette Cooper shone  In today's piece we get the dig at Hannity .Continue reading John Coale, Greta Van Susteren, and the miracle of Scientology drug technology: A meditation And I loathe the far right hate and fear mongering propaganda the shills at Fox news sell everyday . So , this is particularly amusing to me . Someday someone should write a book about Tony Ortega and they should go over all his articles to get a peak under the surface . I find the idea of a never in who studies Scientology well enough to learn many of the implausible truths fascinating . Especially when that person is not in the " I believe every conspiracy theory I hear" club.

I was in for twenty five years and had to learn the bizarre truth about hypnosis, thought reform, cultic abuses and narcissists and sociopaths as part of cult recovery .If I was not in I would not believe a hundredth of the truth about thought reform and social psychology. It is so vastly different than how cults and the mind are portrayed in education and media. Now some academics get it right , but they are largely unheeded .
But to me the question remains - how do you get a skeptical , scientific person to look deep into Scientology and see the seemingly unreal nature of its influence without that person either being a Scientologist or having a loved one in ? I feel Tony Ortega has done this - and then taken on the cult to boot !

But I think the subject is well worth exploring  for others and finding out what draws in the people who put in the time to see past the hype and stereotype . I find them quite interesting myself .
