Jon Atack's final weekly column for us on Scientology, and it's a doozy - 2014-04-05
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 he's helping 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.
Once again, Jon is taking on Scientology's most basic beliefs and putting them under a microscope. This week, he has some thoughts for us about how Scientologists internalize L. Ron Hubbard's toxic policies of Disconnection and Fair Game.
JON: And we'll do even better and start out with a quote from the Dalai Lama: "The whole purpose of religion is to facilitate love and compassion, patience, tolerance, humility, forgiveness."
