Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief



And if by chance

it ever seems laborious

or a sacrifice,

Then you are looking

at the offramps instead

of the highway.

You are missing

the signpost up ahead,

The one that reads,

"next stop, infinity."

Probably my favorite concept

of scientology

Is a world

without criminality,

A world without war,

and a world without insanity.

And i know

of no other group

That their goals

are that clear.

Look, i don't--

you name me another philosophy,

Religion, or technology

That one of its main goals--

besides the three

i mentioned earlier--

Where joy

is the operative concept.

These are

the times now, people.

Okay? These are the times

we will all remember.

Were you there?

What did you do?

So what do you say?

Can we clean this place up?



Because we're counting on you.


All right?

To lrh!







Scientology is such a subject

of fascination for people.

How did you get engaged

in the story?

Well, i've always

been interested in religions

And why people believe

one idea rather than another.

I've studied jonestown,

radical islam.

They're oftentimes

good-hearted people--

Idealistic, but full of

a kind of crushing certainty

That eliminates doubt.

You know, my goal

wasn't to write an expos.

It was simply

to understand scientology,

Trying to understand

what people get out of it.

You know, why do they

go into it in the first place?

I was

interested in intelligent

and skeptical people

Who are drawn

into a belief system

And wind up acting

on those beliefs

In ways they never

thought they would.

The church of scientology

turned out to be

Two offices

above a woolworth's store.

He asked me,

"what's ruining your life?"

I said,

"oh, i'm in love.
