Scientology's Totally Insane Recruitment Methods - 2017-03-09
Back in 2014 I wrote an article for Mike Rinder's blog about Scientology recruitment, specifically focusing on how the Sea Org recruits new staff. This has surprisingly not been a topic that has been covered in detail by anyone. So after seeing a few bits and pieces here and there, I thought it was time to download most of what I know about this topic and especially combine this with the conspiracy theories that Scientologists get into following because of L. Ron Hubbard's wacky beliefs. Anyone who follows my channel knows that I'm not big on global/international conspiracy theories and the reason for that is because I've been all the way down that rabbit hole and I clawed my way back out of it with a lot of study and critical thinking. That experience left me very impatient when someone starts talking about blood drinking lizard people from outer space or centuries old plots by gangs of old men trying to subjugate the planet to their evil will. There's enough real world nonsense, including real conspiracies, to worry about without having to dream up that psychiatry is trying to lobotomize all of us. So with that, here is my video on recruitment methods which I think may surprise some of you. This was actually one of the harder videos for me to produce in quite a while. Enjoy!
