Blog: Critical Q&A 117 - 2017-07-16
The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers left in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) How many people do you think join the Sea Org annually? With technology and info at our fingertips, how has the Sea Org changed their recruitment from 30 years ago? I did see your podcast on recruitment tactics. Based on all of that, would you say most of the recruits are youth raised in Scientology? I would think recruiting a young adult with no real-world background would be difficult unless they were down on their luck, no family, destitute, etc and they saw a place for food and shelter, then the brainwashing could easily take effect.
(2) Are you familiar with John Alex Wood, Scientology's official UK Twitter troll? Is he most likely being paid for his advocacy work? He's one of the very few people who publicly defend the CoS on Twitter.
