I missed "it."

I mean "Going Clear" just last week as well as est four decades ago.

My friends tell me that it is a kind of updated replay of the TIME article from days gone by. Again, I missed it. I simply do not have cable/satellite TV (never have, never will). I lack the time, temperament, and taste for "1,000 channels of nothing to watch."

"The revelations in Alex Gibney’s new documentary Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief won’t come as a huge surprise to anyone who’s read Lawrence Wright’s devastating, similarly titled book-length exposé. (Nor will your generic ethic officers bat an eyelash over the exposure.) But a movie is a very different thing than a book, for better and for worse."

As for est, it has been reborn yet again (and dies) in some new forms. It remains a tepid world - between heaven and hell. (YAWN) I will awake you when the time arrives.

Part of "Large Group Awareness Training," est was, in my opinion, a short shot at satori for the fools (and their recently separated money).

esties would buy a bumper sticker and drive around with this tangible representation of their gullibility on the ass-end of their CVC, BMW, or rent-a-wreck.

Besides, SOME derived an ersatz 'right of passage' from est where they had (1) failed to grow up, (2) failed to finish college (or high school) and/or (3) recently received a bad performance review (from either an employer or bed-partner - or both).*

Jim Jones was a MASTER of LGAT - to the bitter end.

BBC Documentary...

So, the Jonestown 'rite of passage' was - as they say - to the other shore.

Then there is that word: LITIGATION.

And the other word: CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY.

*There is evidence that many of those who sign up for LGAT programs such as Landmark Forum are having major problems in their lives. Y. Klar, R. Mendola, J. D. Fischer, R. C. Silver, J. M. Chinsky and B. Goff, reported in the Journal of Consulting & Clinical Psychology [990;58(1):99-108]

'google' your favorite LGAT and either the word "suicide" or the word "litigation."

O.K. - fair enough?

Your brain is your brain - be responsible for it!
