Brainwashing

The Scientology Brainwashing Defense

After WWII, a series of trials were held by the victors to prosecute war crimes by German soldiers. During these trials, over and over again, “I was only following orders” came up as a defense for these soldiers’ actions. This defense was roundly rejected by the prosecutors and the judges because: “The fact that a […]

2 Poled Thinking & Anti Scientology Fanatics

Mike Rinder’s blog has a post today about “2 Types of Exes” which is eerily reminiscent of “Two Types of People” by L Ron himself. Hubbard was wrong about this two poled thinking and so is Mike Rinder. Here’s why. Share AlanzosBlog Far and Wide

Barney Fife Catastrophizing Ex-Scientologist

Hysterical Things Anti-Scientologists Say…

Was Barney Fife an Anti-Scientologist? He sure could have been, if you listen carefully to some of the whacked-out things that some Anti-Scientologists say about Scientology when they get themselves all worked up into a lather like Barney did.

Scientology Abuses

Has Miscavige Taken Steps to Curb Some Scientology Abuses?

No way, right? Ex-Scientologists Aaron Smith-Levin and Chris Shelton present information Chris gathered on his recent trip to Australia about supposed new ways that SO orgs are being run – the greatest sources of abuse in Scientology by far.

I’ve been reading and re-reading his recent series of articles on the unlicensed mental care facility set up by Scientologists in the back woods of Tennessee. And […]

Is Chris Shelton Waking Up From His Anti-Scientology Fever Dream?

It happens to all of us. There is a point where you wake up from the hysteria of being an anti-Scientologist and say to yourself “Hey Wait a Minute!” The conspiracy theories of Scientology’s political tentacles that can “torpedo” FBI investigations, the superstitious belief in the POWER of the MIND CONTROL, the super-dooper RELEVANCE of […]

In Defense of J Gordon Melton

Are All Ex-Scientologists Crazy? Chris Shelton Seems to Think So!

My point is not that there is no damage that comes from having been involved with Scientology.

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 […]
