I'm glad you got free. And am pressed you saw that the LC was/is a brainwashing cult early on.

You got out shortly after I joined. You're obviously much sharper than I am. It took me 10 years to discover that the LC is a cult.

But I eventually got free ... Amen! Amen!

Blessings ....

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we've been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We're no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge -- even to ourselves -- that we've been so credulous.” - Carl Sagan
