How Anti Cult Movement Ideology Harms Ex-Members

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?

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.

Alanzo Scientology

Alanzo is an Ex-Scientologist who sees the same tribalism he escaped in Scientology rising up in Anti-Scientology.

Alanzo tries to use critical thinking on the war between Cults & AntiCults.

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.

"The judicial system failed Kyle, but at that moment I realized we weren’t out of options. If the Church of Scientology expected us to limp away broken and beaten, they were sorely mistaken."

People don't realize that getting yourself into & out of a cult is one of the most valuable lessons in #CriticalThinking ever. People don't get that if you haven't experienced this, then you've never had your worldview collapse on you.

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.
