If you are curious about Scientology, how it works or what its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, was really all about, then I think this is the video for you. In this, I'm going to actually give you a window into the deepest and most important part of Scientology and exactly how Hubbard convinces his followers that Scientology is the most important thing in the world, more important than their job, their money or even their friends and family. So let's take a look and see what's behind the curtain.

L. Ron Hubbard was a prolific writer, not only writing books and giving lectures, but also issuing thousands of bulletins and policy letters which laid out the rules and guidelines for the Scientology religion. What we're going to do in this video is critically analyze what Scientologists consider to be the single most important issue he wrote, entitled Keeping Scientology Working.

Before I get into that, I want to give a very brief rundown on the events that led to Hubbard writing this issue. You who are watching this video may know all about Scientology's history or you may know nothing about it. I'm going into this assuming that you don't know much, so for those of you who do, thank you for your patience.
