A few things I believe about Scientology:
1. L. Ron Hubbard was a con man and this was the ultimate con. He laughed all the way to the bank.
2. Dave Miscavige is an egomaniac and he beats his employees.
3. Dave's wife has been missing for over a decade, only heard from through a lawyer, and I'm pretty sure she's dead.
4. I feel really bad for people that actually believe in this "religion". And that's coming from someone who believes in the invisible sky daddy.
Jenna's story was so awful that at times it was hard to believe. But then you look up stories of people that escaped this cult and you learn it's an all-too-common tale. From working like a mule her whole childhood to having no true education to the constant paranoia that is the self-policing of Scientology, it was one huge nightmare. I mean, just saying you wanted to call the police was enough to get you a High Crime. A High Crime! They could beat you senseless (which they have done before) and if you say you are calling the authorities, you become the enemy.
I'm glad Jenna escaped. I was disappointed her husband wasn't so easy to convince to leave, but I am happy he did eventually go with her. I think books like this need to be shared so that others do not fall prey to cults. As Jenna herself said, Scientology may say to think for yourself, but it encourages the opposite. Brainwashing at its finest.
