The Smoke and Mirrors of Scientology and Amway
Possibly the most well known of cyber battles in the Internet era has been the struggle between ‘Anonymous’ and ‘Scientology.’ Anonymous might be described as a movement of non-violent detractors who come together in a common cause to reveal the 'dark side' of Scientology and form a ‘Yang’ for the Scientology ‘Ying.’ There’s nothing unusual about large cults drawing detractors. All cults seek to control the information and thereby disguise ‘their dark side.’
Cults like Scientology throw up ‘smoke and mirrors’ and seek to ‘monopolize’ information revealed about themselves. They generally seek to isolate their cult initiates from information that is critical of their criminogenic ‘dark side’. They always seek to monopolize the mind of their adherents. It is only when the cultic leaders loose control of their ‘monopoly’ of information that their plans perish. Reference the infamous Jim Jones’s of The People’s Temple? When Jones had discovered that his monopoly of information had disappeared as ‘critical scrutiny’arose, he chose to implode his cult, refusing to be held to account for fraud, subsequent misdeeds and, in the end, murder.
Scientology is an insane denial of advancements in science and technology, especially in the field of psychiatry and psychology. Adherents of Scientology are asked to believe some of the most intellectually mind-numbing myths ever presented to mankind as religion.
Amway, is the ‘religion of business.’ Scientology is the ‘business of religion.’ When Amway looks in the mirror, the image of Scientology looks back. This gives new meaning to the expression ‘smoke and mirrors.’ The smoke seeks to disguise the ‘dark side’ of both cults. For more information about Scientology and Amway click here.
