The show where I answer viewer's questions left in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at This week, the questions I answer are:

(1) Hi Chris! I have never found the word "love" in anything I have read or watched about Scientology except in personal stories of disconnection. It's clear by its behavior that the Church doesn't value love, and as both Hubbard and Miscavige showed all the symptoms of antisocial personality disorder neither of them ever felt love. Does Scientology ever mention love at all?

(2) Hi Chis! Loving the new book!! You're output just keeps getting better and better! My question is about word clearing in Scientology. I've heard many former members describe word clearing for misunderstood words in ways that almost sounds like obsessive compulsive behavior. And I noticed many ex-members still seem to obsess over getting the right definition and splitting hairs over which definition to use even after they have been long gone from the fold. Was word clearing and constant dictionary lookups a habit you had to break when you first got out? Or was leaving that behavior behind easy to shake off?
