Category: Alanzo’s Scientology Biography
Alanzo was a Scientologist for 16yrs. He left in the late 90’s & got fairgamed: fired from his job, followed by PIs & endured attempts by Scientology to destroy his business and his family. He’s emerged from that & believes getting out of a cult isn’t something that you recover from, it’s something you’re strengthened by.Read More

Your assumptions can be quite insidious. You must study the actual subjects that Hubbard “spun” for you – from sources completely independent from L Ron Hubbard – so as to challenge your own assumptions, separate out Hubbard’s installed ones, and inspect them for their weaknesses.Read More
Of all the books that have been written about Scientology, if you had only one shot to communicate to someone what Scientology was all about, I would give them John Sweeney’s “Church of Fear”.Read More

I used to think that as long as I was not in the cult of Scientology any more, I would never fall into the unquestioning, partisan mindset that I had adopted when I was a Scientologist.Read More
Adopting the beliefs of the anti-cult movement dramatically changes the views and attitudes of those who experience a loss of faith. Those changes have a profound effect on how Exes make sense of their own past. So we must ask: How helpful is the ideology of the anti cult movement in making sense of your life?Read More
Consider that this is a trick that L Ron Hubbard pulled on Scientologists. Think about the terror a Scientologist experiences, and the ways their inner thoughts and environment are controlled by this trick. It’s a very vicious and uncaring one. It was a trick Hubbard used without regard to a Scientologists interests at all – but only to enrich himself off of their own inner terror.Read More
During all 3 Seasons of Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath, Leah and Mike have sought to make anyone who criticizes their show out to be a Scientologist. Because who could possibly criticize the holy work that they are doing but a Scientologist?Read More
If there’s one reason that I’m doing these videos, it’s because these ideas from the anti cult movement are destructive to an Ex-Scientologist, or an Ex-member of any minority religion that they call “cult”. And they’re just beliefs – they’re not facts.Read More
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.
Latest Tweets from Alanzo
Policing of social media & who you can & can't be friends with is completely normalized in #AntiCults too.
Chris can't see it because his loyalty blinds him to these behaviors common to #Cults & AntiCults.
Here's @sheltondesigner calling every member of a minority religion "mad".
Is this an attempt to dehumanize all adherents of a religion as dangerous & irrational?
Yes it is. Yet another one.

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.
