Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood and the Prison of Belief

It's not quite as dramatic as the big exposés but Ross and Carrie have been doing a really long series where they try to join Scientology.


You're not going to get the really good dirt on the Sea Org or whatever really, which you've already heard quite a bit about to be fair.  But it's a look at what it's like to just walk in the front door like you knew nothing at all about it-  just take the tests sign up for a few courses and meetings.

Highlights include the bit where they get themselves invited to some little gathering and wander into the big Sea Org AGM by mistake, or the somewhat distressing course where they have to audit one another and you get a glimpse of the kind of, really, psychological torture that underpins the whole enterprise.



Mostly it just seems a bit creepy and sad, like a self help course with no attendees run by competitive high pressure sales people who aren't allowed to sleep.  They seem to fall about themselves at the faintest hint of genuineness when someone who isn't a repeat nutter, a troll or some kind of spy wanders into the place (only these two are kinda spies.  Certainly not genuine anyway).
