I was in Scientology from the age of six until the age of 12 when I got myself out. The Scientologists don't like that. I was in scientolgy from 1963 approximately till 1969, with slight variations due to time, place and event.In 1963 I did not know what scientology was, by 1964 I had an inkling. by 1965 I knew what scientolgy was, or so I thought, by 1968 I knew exactly what scientology was and by 1969 I hated these bastards with a vengeance.
Look at our brokenness.
We know that in all Creation
Only the human family
Has strayed from the sacred way.

Teach us love,compassion,honour
That we may heal the earth
And heal each other.(part of an Ojibway prayer)

Reason.com: Understanding Scientology, by Hugh Urban, April 13, 2013, http://reason.com/archives/2013/04/13/u ... cientology

Hugh Urban wrote an academic book, The Church of Scientology: A History of a New Religion, which we have discussed on this message board. He seems to approve of Wright's careful research, but poo-poo's the hair-raising eyewitness accounts.
ex-members... surely also have agendas, axes to grind, and simply their own subjective views of events.
Um, Urban, it's either ex-members or nothing, since nobody at CoS will talk about, say, the musical chairs episode. Urban also wishes Wright would talk about the ordinary public Scientologist in, say, Akron. I'll tell Urban, now. That ordinary Akron Scientologist likely has been forced to disconnect from a parent, sibling or even a son or daughter. Urban wants "lived reality; he'd see a ripped up family. Urban wants to hear about growing up in Sea Org. Hello! read Jenna Miscavige Hills' book!

I hope the disk is loaded with special features. Whether it is or not I'll be purchasing this.

Sounds like TC avoiding the Going Clear discussion will be Mission Impossible 6.
