Blog: Critical Q&A 50 - 2016-03-27
The weekly show where I answer questions from the comments sections of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) Chris, I just watched this documentary "The Beginners' Guide to L. Ron Hubbard," expecting Hardeep Singh Kohli (the presenter) to be critical of Scientology. I was left with a different impression of Dianetics. Watching this very intelligent and articulate man on a 2-week journey through to his first auditing session, everything the Scientologists did seemed to make sense to me. I have been left a little confused as to how I now view Dianetics, because it all seemed to be so simple, clear and concise. My question to you is, do you still practice Scientology outside of the organized "Church"? Are you critical of the tech of Scientology in general, or the organization as headed by David Miscavige? It has disturbed me a little because I have been so critical of Scientology up to now, but now have a new "openness" to the fundamentals behind Scientology. The "mind control" you speak so critically of, is that referring to Church of Scientology or L. Ron Hubbard's teachings in part or as a whole?
