Once I’d spotted that my thinking was tribal, I was no longer consumed by my tribe’s survival. I resented that the tribe had taken over my thinking. I could finally see the eclipsed and thoughtless cruelty of my former tribe.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.
