Going Clear... by Gibney : more than just the TRUTH

Post by thorshammer » Sun May 24, 2015 2:56 pm

I was a Scn'ist for about nine years, during the heyday of Rinder and Rathbun (the 90's). I watched them take their turns parading for Miscavige in their semi-annual broadcasts to their "millions". Even in the thick of it, I could sense a dictatorship.

It's remarkable to see them now, coming to their senses themselves and enduring the resulting slings and arrows. Gibney does a great job doing justice to the story, I would add little to what's done (other than perhaps including Chris Shelton, one of the best apologists for ex'Scn's around). It's a bit like reliving history for me, only more truthful this time.

Thinking of all the money I could have saved, if instead I'd just gone to the park and meditated. Better late than never! ;)

Welcome, Thorshammer. I'd call Chris Shelton a great communicator with a deep perspective from his previous mindset and training. Usually he finds things have gotten even more punitive and absurd, but he's not excusing the earlier manipulation and abuse.
