What if being a Scientologist was never a really a disease in the first place that you needed to “recover from”? What if it was just one part of your own much longer spiritual journey that taught you many important lessons, and from which you emerged stronger and wiser than ever?

Cult Expert, London School of Economics Social Science Professor Eileen Barker Submits Herself to the Gearty Grilling
Why do anti-cultists reject science so much? When they call a social scientist a “shill” or a “quack”, where is their quantitative data that disputes the work of that social scientist? I have never once seen them offer any scientific data to dispute the results of any of the scientists they wish to discredit with this juvenile name calling character assassinations.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

The anti-cult movement provides the principle ideology almost all Ex-cult members are given to adopt after they leave their minority religions. The foundation of that anti-cult ideology is the belief in “brainwashing”. But does “brainwashing” really exist? Or is it just an excuse?Read More
Until the background of these acts have been exposed, detailed and thoroughly condemned by Mike Rider and Marty Rathbun, and amends made to Gerry Armstrong for what they have done to him, there can be little possibility that a person who wishes to claim they are “exposing the abuses of Scientology” fails to expose the some of the worst abuses that they themselves committed.Read More

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.

Latest Tweets from Alanzo
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

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.
