I believe everyone has the right to seek spiritual freedom and happiness, and that each is entitled to their own opinions and to make their own decisions about their life.
I also acknowledge that some find scientology helpful in achieving their spiritual aspirations. But I also think anyone who claims to have all the wisdom there is to know is at best a fool and at worst seeking to take advantage of, dominate and control others.
Much of the benign concepts in scientology have been obscured by a fundamentalist organization that defies the concepts upon which it claims to stand. Scientology is, under the guise of providing “freedom”, “happiness” and “human rights,” doing precisely the opposite. Scientology operates primarily as a money-making scheme that is not merely failing to free people as they promise, but instead trapping them in a prison of lies, dogma and “command intention” enforced by threats of disconnection and eternal damnation.
Scientology fosters a culture of lies. To the media it claims there is no enforced disconnection, they have more than 10 million members, the culture of violence is imaginary, there is massive expansion evidenced by new “Ideal Orgs” and that any and all reports of human rights abuses are lies generated by a “handful of bitter defrocked apostates on the fringes of the internet.” Miscavige himself lies to scientology staff and public, proclaiming enormous growth and demand for scientology all over the world that is not evident anywhere. His “Ideal Orgs” are failing, unable to pay their bills, as the footsteps of the few staff echo in their empty halls. His “technical breakthroughs” are uniformly designed only to squeeze more money out of the blindly faithful.
I have friends and family stuck in the trap, still hoodwinked by the lies yet scared to speak up or walk away. Unwilling to defy the thought police, they abandon friends and family for fear of incurring the wrath of the all-powerful organization.
It is my intention to do everything I can to:
- Expose the abuses ongoing in scientology, through this blog, media, podcasts, law enforcement and elected officials to bring the wrongdoing to an end.
- Help provide information to anyone looking for the truth about scientology.
- Provide a forum for the exchange of information.
- Give a voice to those who are afraid, unable or have no venue to speak about their experiences.
- Inspire others to take a stand and speak out against abuses.
