Jefferson Hawkins on Scientology Ethics: Let's Get Utilitarian! - 2013-10-24
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."
Last week you really started this series off with a bang, Jefferson. We can't wait to see what you have for us in this second installment as we read Introduction to Scientology Ethics.
JEFFERSON: This week, I thought we'd take up the next three sections of the book, up to the end of Chapter One. These all kind of hang together and serve to introduce a major lynchpin of Hubbard's ethics system, "the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics."
