Narconon’s Big Con — The Fix
Type: Press
Author(s): Mark Ebner, Walter Armstrong

The Scientology-backed rehab promises addicts they can sweat out their demons in sweltering saunas. But critics charge that the organization is the devil itself. L. Ron Hubbard, the prolific science fiction author and founder of the Church of Scientology, may have been judged “a mental case” (according to the F.B.I.) and “a pathological liar” (according to a Los Angeles Supreme Court judge), but to tens of thousands of his eager followers worldwide, the man discovered an approach to recovery that outclasses ...

Enquête JE // Le témoignage d'une ex-scientologue — TVA

Type: TV
Author(s): Michel Jean

L'audition est au coeur de la scientologie. Il s'agit d'une technique où l'auditeur, en posant une série de questions, guide la personne auditée à travers ses souvenirs. L'audition est censée permettre de retracer et d'éliminer les traces laissées par les traumatismes passés. Cela ressemble parfois à l'hypnose et les personnes auditées affirment d'ailleurs souvent avoir revécu des moments passés de leur vie. Nos collaboratrices ont été initiées à l'audition au cours d'une fin de semaine de Dianétique, passage obligé pour tout ...

Declaration of Robert V. Levine, Ph.D.
Type: Declaration
[...] 72. Guilt, shame, and separation constituted the social and psychological force that induced sustained, long-term commitment. Physical force, physical abuse and the fear of even greater abuse if one tried to escape were powerful deterrents to any attempts to leave. It could easily be argued that these coercions could have been sufficient to keep anyone from ever making an attempt to get out. There was, though, another level of forces exerted by Scientology that made leaving even more costly – ...
