Good post.

yes Alanzo, the power of choice is what makes us, or does it? It depends.

What sits behind the power of choice is rhetoric, which Hubbard used to get us to become a scientologist.

What sits behind one getting out of scientology is rhetoric as well.

But if we break down rhetoric to pathos, ethos and logos, why hubbard used all 3 means, and getting out requires the same. Funny how that is?

So, are us ex scientologists just supposed to move on up and not tell of our experiences?

It’s true that many anti’s go on about how Scientologists are brainwashed and “Ronbots” – but others take a very unsypathetic view of them and say how stupid they must be, or how “willifully ignorant” they are about the abuses and other outpoints. They (the anti’s) seem to want it both ways – that Scientologists are completely at effect and that they are aware of what’s going on but refuse to be honest about it. Maybe some of them hold both views as their own cognitive dissonance.

Btw, Alanzo, you seem to be as good at relatively extemporaneous (I assume) speaking as you are at writing – although you haven’t done nearly as much of it, as far as I know. These recordings were a great idea.

I kind of view the ex scientology crowd or tribe as whistle blowers, while the anti scientology crowd or tribe as people who have listened to ex’s tell there stories, Of course, the bottom line is no clears or OT’s, amazing.

I also view the ex scientology crowd or whistle blowers or tribe as people who are trying to tell the story of the allegory of the cave by plato:

It’s a mind game Hubbard create, a prison of belief:

I’m getting a “403 Forbidden” message when I try to go on Mike Rinder’s blog. I wonder what’s up with that. I’ve posted some general conversation comments there over the last month which went through and no hostile comments. I still find some interesting comments there, or at least I did. Oh well. Maybe it’s just an internet mystery.
