Blog: (VIDEO) Critical Q&A 13 - 2015-07-12
My question-and-answer video show, where I take up questions subscribers and commenters have asked me in my videos and answer them as best I can. Questions this week:
(1) What would the world look like if Scientology succeeded in "clearing" the planet? What kind of reality could that possibly be and how does it compare to their stated goals for a "cleared" planet? What do they claim they're going for and what would really happen? What is the payoff? What happens if everyone alive is a Scientologist?
(2) The late Christopher Hitchens (a personal hero of mine) often stated that one of the reasons why he became an American citizen was that the USA is the only western democracy that has a separation of church and state in its very constitution. He was however, also one of the first to notice and comment upon the paradox that religion seems to saturate everything in America. This includes, but is not limited to the news, politics, legislation etc. As a former cult member, you more than most I would suspect, know that people are motivated by beliefs and ideas. Therefore the fact that religion seemingly saturates everything, including your highest public office, does this concern you?
