Jon Atack: Scientology's notion of 'case gain,' and how it reinforces the prison of belief - 2015-12-11
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, thanks for thinking of us this week. We know you have been busy putting out a new book that talks about a number of different subjects relevant to what we're interested in here. We're hoping to dig into it soon. In the meantime, you have an excellent meditation for us today.
JON: Believe it or not, I spend very little time thinking about Scientology, but occasionally something will bubble to the surface. A friend used the expression "case gain" last week and it gave me pause for thought.
