How Scientology 'ethics' creates your very own Truman Show - 2013-12-19
Jefferson Hawkins was once the top marketing executive for the Church of Scientology and helped it reach its greatest extent with the famous "volcano" TV ads in the 1980s. He's told his tale of getting into and out of the church with his excellent books Counterfeit Dreams and Leaving Scientology, and he's helping us understand the upside-down world of Scientology "ethics."
Where are you taking us this week, Jeff?
JEFFERSON: This week we'll be looking at Chapter 8 of Introduction to Scientology Ethics, which is called "Ethics in Scientology Organizations," and contains a somewhat random collection of L. Ron Hubbard's "Policy Letters" on the theme of the role of Ethics, and the Ethics Officer, in a Scientology Org.
