Tag Archives | Alanzo’s Scientology Criticism

Scientology Books in the Trash - alanzosblog.comA lot of anti-Scientologists who haven’t been around for very long accuse Alanzo of never criticizing Scientology. They say he only criticizes Anti-Scientologists for all their tribalism and cruelty.

Yet Alanzo has been one of the most prolific and productive critics of the Church of Scientology in the last 20 years. And he has the real OSA fair game scars to prove it.

Alanzo finds he has to constantly repeat himself because no one who is around now knows who Alanzo is. Most of the rest of the old guard Scientology critics have drifted off or died.

I guess this happens to everyone who gets old.

This page is a collection of all of Alanzo’s criticism of:

  • the Church of Scientology,
  • Scientology technology,
  • David Miscavige,
  • Mike Rinder,
  • Marty Rathbun,
  • L. Ron Hubbard,
  • and Tom Cruise,



And these are just the blog posts he’s written criticizing Scientology. There is at least 5 times more criticism of Scientology, in terms of word count, on message boards around the Internet.

This collection of Alanzo’s Scientology criticism is presently over 130 posts. It will continue to grow.

So next time someone tells you that Alanzo only criticizes Anti-Scientologists, give them the link to this page.

Embrace Your Inner Scientologist

To dismiss that part of your life, to wall it off under labels of “delusional Scientologist” or “weak” or “crazy loon” is to remain in a dissociative state – to continue living a fractured life with some of the best parts of you buried underneath a wall of self-hatred and shame.

Post Ex-Scientology

A Post-Ex has integrated the arguments, and “truths”, he made as a Scientologist with the arguments, and “truths”, he made as an Ex/Anti-Scientologist. He has seen the disconnects and the contradictions there, and repaired them. He no longer walks around with an opposite self inside him, with which he is at war.

How L Ron Hubbard Tricked You: Scientology Logic vs. Logic

The key to understanding the true value of Scientology’s logic system called the Data Series lies in understanding the idea that there are many different types of logic. Each logic was built for a purpose, and each logic performs a particular function. For instance, binary computer logic was created to turn off and on electricity […]

How L. Ron Hubbard Tricked You: The Scientology OT Levels

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 – […]

Life After Scientology

A Study List for Life After Scientology

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.

Binded and Blinded By the Tribal Mind

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.

Scientology and The Source Family Cult

Last night, I watched a very good documentary profiling The Source Family cult. This was a cult that operated a number of health food and vegetarian restaurants in Los Angeles in the late 1960’s and early 70’s and which featured lots of great sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. Yeah baby. I think it is a good […]

Apply Basic Skepticism to Scientology & See How it Holds Up

Basic skepticism is seeking out or asking for positive evidence in support of a claim, and then evaluating the soundness of that evidence. It is not giving out evidence that counterclaims are false, or giving out evidence that all similar claims “do it too”. It is simply looking for or asking for positive evidence in […]

How L Ron Hubbard Tricked You: Two Scientologys

Have you ever noticed that there are two Scientologys? When you study the chronological development of Dianetics and Scientology, and you watch L Ron Hubbard develop his tech and policies, you can really see the change from one Scientology to another as it evolved from the 1950’s into the late 1960’s and 1970’s. All the […]

Consonance & Dissonance in Scientology

Consonance & Dissonance in Thinking About Scientology

The human mind wants to think about things – especially important things – as either ALL GOOD, or ALL BAD. Not both. A mixture of good and bad in the mind gives you a feeling of dissonance – disharmony, conflict, chaos. Thinking about things as ALL GOOD, or ALL BAD, gives you a feeling of […]

Evidence in Reasoning With Scientology Beliefs

There is an interesting quality to logic and how the human mind uses it. Logic is used by the mind like a ladder, with one step leading to the next step, and the next, etc. If one of the steps in the ladder of logic is false, the rest of the steps after that can […]

Scientology Was a Test of Our Character

People who got themselves involved in Scientology were continually presented with all kinds of moral choices about how they would treat their fellow man. Because Scientology is a cult, it takes all the social traits of human groups, and turns them up to an intensity that can only be described as ELEVEN. If the bullies […]

The Truth Rundown, Scientology’s Most Brutal Brainwashing Technique

Have you heard that the term “brainwashing” is a nebulous term that doesn’t describe anything, and been told that it should be beneath you to say that a “religion” brainwashes people? What exactly is a brainwashing technique? Chris Shelton describes what a brainwashing technique is, very specificly and very clearly, in his exposure of the […]

Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath Has Still Presented No Evidence of Criminal Activity by the Church of Scientology

Last night’s episode of Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath was a round table discussion of former Scientologists, and independent Scientologists, exposing the upper levels of Scientology so that people can make more informed decisions about their involvement. For that reason, it was a very valuable episode. And Tony Ortega has gotten people who have […]

Another excellent discussion over on Mike Rinder’s blog prompted me to post this solution to the endless tribal warfare between “spiritualists” and “scientists”. Although I almost always disagree with her, Marildi, once again does an admirable job making her case. As well as Eclipse-Girl, Roger Hornaday, and the rest. _____________________________________ marildi says June 17, 2015 […]

A Narrow Critique of Scientology Ethics Technology

One of the benefits of Hubbard’s Scientology ethics technology is to provide a way to structure the analysis of problems in your life, and to think up solutions to deal with them. One of the problems with Hubbard’s ethics technology is that his structure is designed to always put the interests and goals of Scientology, […]

Thinking With Simplistic Cult Metaphors from Scientology

Vicar, in his short but excellent comment over on Mark C Rathbun’s blog, wrote: “I would have to think that the deeper one follows Ron and presses on in this search for his native state, the more likely they are moving away from ever realizing it and being at peace. Its a collapsed bridge. Run.” […]

How L Ron Hubbard Tricked You: Scientology and Hypnosis

Anyone who has read anything about hypnosis from a source other than L Ron Hubbard can see that auditing produces a hypnotic state and makes a Scientologist highly suggestible. Here’s a good place to start to learn about what hypnosis really is: Scientific American And here’s a good definition of the term by the American […]

Criticizing Scientology: What Exactly is Criticism?

Ever since October of 1950, when Dr. Joseph Winter publicly left the burgeoning Dianetic movement and wrote a book called “A Doctor’s Report on Dianetics“, L Ron Hubbard had a problem: Books like that made his stats crash. People who were involved in Dianetics, or the families and friends of those involved, would read these […]

Brainwashing in Scientology: Switching Your Value System

The following is an exchange with a commentor on Marty Rathbun’s blog named Conan. In this exchange, I was able to clearly and simply express what I have learned that L Ron Hubbard was really up to with Scientology.

Undercover as an Agent for the Office of Special Affairs

When I was young and dumb, I worked with OSA in Illinois. Randy Kretchmar, Carol Brookes and Mary Ann Ahmad were the Office of Special Affairs at the Chicago Org at that time. The Cult Awareness Network had not been infiltrated, taken over and destroyed by OSA yet. They were still the Church of Scientology’s […]

Here’s What Makes a Scientologist Stupid

I wrote this after dealing with a swarm of Scientologists on the Internet: I’ve seen it now. It is unmistakable. It works like this: You present an idea that has NOTHING to do with Scientology, and the Scientologist must relate it to something in Scientology to “understand” what you are talking about. Example: I wrote […]

People Who Have Been Harmed By Scientology Deserve Justice

And they deserve closure. No person who is loyal and sycophantic to those who refuse to provide the information necessary to help people who have been harmed by Scientology are likely to be a credible journalistic source for those scrambling to make a buck at Scientology reporting. That’s a long sentence, but if you read […]

Mark “Marty” Rathbun Standing In Front of His LRH Library The sooner you take the blind spots off of your view of L Ron Hubbard and his spiritual deception called Scientology, the better off you are. It’s like removing a band aid, or getting your privates waxed – do it fast, scream loudly, and start running.

Scientology & Mimicry

The first book I purchased at a Scientology Mission was “Hymn of Asia”. And that is because it was the first book on Scientology offered to me at the mission to buy. They offered it to me because I told them that I was interested in and studying Buddhism. I was told that Scientology is […]

The Ideals of Scientology Criticism

The Free Exchange of Ideas The Questioning of Rooted Assumptions Allowing Rigorous Debate Cultivating Mutual Respect Seeking to Live With the Truth Whenever these ideals have been violated, I have always felt a sense of unfairness, and felt the need to criticize the venue or group which knowingly and continually violates them.

Marty Rathbun & Mike Rinder Need to Come Fully Clean

I left the Church of Scientology in 2000, and have been doing what I can to warn the public about the lies and abuse that L.
