Dangerous Persuasions. Season One. Episode One.
Wow. This woman joined Scientology, got exploited doing crazyass work, then was promoted to being a spy. On orders of Scientology, she got a job in a psychiatry office, and she took documents home, had them copied, then sneaked them back into the files. She also spied on an author, Paulette Cooper, who wrote a book against Scientology: The Scandal of Scientology. (Available for download at her site)
Humiliation served its purpose, making her duly afraid to piss off the superiors. After this, she and her husband get transferred to Hollywood to oversee the fleecing of celebrities. They get called back to Sea Org for more rehab, but this time they decide to leave Sea Org and just be regular Scientologists, like regular Catholics, I guess. She deconverts, and Scientology can't tolerate that. They subject her to brutal interrogation techniques, or more properly, psychological torture. After being sent back home, the poor thing snaps completely, and winds up in a mental hospital. This gets her husband's attention, and he also deconverts.
At the very end, she says how she's at peace, but she looks a little drugged and creepy, which is unfortunate. She was probably just a little tired, or maybe she was trying to convince herself that she really was on the other side of her experiences. I wonder how truly peaceful a person can be when they know they are a "Suppressive Person" in the eyes of such an evil organization.
Piers Morgan advertised having a former Scientologist on tonight. I wonder if it will be her.
