A Bunker Exclusive: Jonny Jacobsen's 2008 book introduction describing Scientology - 2014-10-06
Jonny Jacobsen As 2007 was ending, and then as the Anonymous movement reacted to the Tom Cruise video incident in January 2008, a British journalist living in Paris, Jonny Jacobsen, was racing to put together a book about the Church of Scientology. More than a year before "The Truth Rundown," the blockbuster series in the Tampa Bay Times that came out in 2009, Jacobsen was ready to expose the shocking nature of physical brutality in the highest echelons of Scientology at its secretive base in California, and many other previously unpublished secrets.
But Jonny struggled to find a publisher for his work, and after writing his introduction, he turned instead to another medium: He began his excellent blog, Infinite Complacency.
Now, years later, Jonny, who has become a favorite contributor here at the Bunker, has given us the rare treat of publishing the introduction he had prepared in 2008. It holds up spectacularly, and we're proud to be chosen for its debut.
