Who is Alanzo?
Alanzo is an Ex-Scientologist who sees the same tribalism he escaped in Scientology rising up in Anti-Scientology.
Of all the lessons he learned by escaping Scientology, he learned one lesson harder than any other: Never let your tribe do your thinking for you.
Alanzo tries to use critical thinking on the war between Cults & AntiCults.

This is @sheltondesigner calling out #LeahRemini's Twitter Trolls to harass a low-level Scientologist's youtube channel. This person isn't responsible for any abuse in Scn.
Marty Mike and Dave!
Why hasn't @MikeRinder revealed any of this in 12 years?
"Thanks @MikeRinder. The three of us need to get together. Between us the whole story can unfold, it is far more creepy, illegal, and dark than so far revealed. But, between the three of us we have the entire thing covered." - #MartyRathbun #DavidMiscavige
"The judicial system failed Kyle, but at that moment I realized we weren’t out of options. If the Church of Scientology expected us to limp away broken and beaten, they were sorely mistaken."

You've never picked yourself up from that.
The process of getting out of a 'Cult' is one of the most valuable experiences a human being can have.
Sure. Your whole life is ruined.
Sure, all your friends & business contacts abandon you.
How else will you find out what's important, and meaningful, in life?
If you got into a 'cult' to find out what life was all about, then getting out of a cult and being thrust back into Mainstream Society - with all it's guilt-tripping 'told-you-Sos!' - will teach you real quick.
The trick is not to learn too hard from that.
Remember who you are & who you were.
You're the same person you were before, during, and after the 'cult'.
Don't let mainstream society beat you out of your rebellious individualism.
Don't let them stop you from your search for a meaningful life.
If you haven't spotted it yet, you haven't been watching.
