Scientology, The Cult Business

the cult businessThis documentary  was made in 1987 by “Facing South”, a English regional television company.

What makes it fascinating is very simple: despite all of the cultural and technological changes that have taken place in the intervening  years, the behaviour of the Church of Scientology has hardly changed at all – its obsession with money, and the policies of harassment and ‘disconnection’ (shunning parishioners who will not conform) are already fully formed.

This incredible inflexibility is likely to be a major factor in it’s downfall.
