Jon Atack: Escaping the trap Scientology sets for the mind - 2014-08-09
Jon Atack is the author of A Piece of Blue Sky, one of the very best books on L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. He has a new edition of the book for sale, and for more than a year on Saturdays he helped us sift through the legends, myths, and contested facts about Scientology that tend to get hashed and rehashed in books, articles, and especially on the Internet. He was kind enough to send us a new post.
Jon, over the past couple of years, you've written for us about the struggle Scientologists go through to escape the kind of thinking that comes with deep involvement in the writings of L. Ron Hubbard. But this time you've really outdone yourself. We're looking forward to responses from our readers on this one. Take it away, Jon, and help us pierce Scientology's veil.
