How does Scientology conduct management of its day to day operations? Reports from former members have shown up here and there over the past 20 years. Could stories of armed guards, weapons, staff beatings, and razor wire fences surrounding the entire property be true?
13. SCIENTOLOGY – ABUSE AT THE TOP
Author: by Amy Scobee
June 29, 2010
A former top insider reveals the nightmare world of violence and abuse at the highest levels of the Church of Scientology. One review states: “At home alone, a 14 year old girl takes a phone call from Scientology. This starts a quarter of a century journey of manipulation, betrayal and sexual, physical and mental abuse.
This journey leads to the highest management echelon and one woman’s courage to break free. A real page-turner.” Mark P. Another writes: “Amy Scobee has written a book unlike any other expose of Scientology. She actually was at the top of International Management for 20 years, and oversaw the recruitment of Hollywood stars into the Church of Scientology.
She witnessed the abuse of top managers by their senior, David Miscavige. She writes convincingly of the human rights violations she endured while on the Rehabilitation Project Force, a thinly disguised slave labor camp. Her book is enjoyable to insiders and laymen alike, with a glossary of terms provided, and plentiful footnotes.

Author: by Chris Shelton
Utopia or Dystopia?Shangri-La or purgatory? Paradise or perdition? What future truly awaits mankind on the other side of widespread human enhancement? With breakthrough advances in transhumanistic science and technology at an all-time high, it appears that people of all ages, backgrounds, and world cultures are lining up to embrace the alteration and augmentation of the human race.
Remaining as the mere Homo sapiens that God designed is no longer satisfactory as we race toward the human-animal chimeric and human-machine hybrid era a point of no return. For many, these transhuman concepts paint bright and glorious tomorrows filled with higher efficiency, ease, and convenience for our world.
For others, the notion of irreversibly changing what it is to be human and the potential spiritual and biological repercussions that holds for the earth s dominant species is, understandably, terrifying. In The Milieu: Welcome to the Transhuman Resistance, you will learn: *The purpose and importance of the resistance group known as the Milieu *Why it s important for the Church to be involved in the discussion about transhumanism *The glaring, spiritual symbolism of the transhuman worldview, and how the Promethean Faith (a.K.A., Religion of Man) is far more a religion than its disciples openly acknowledge *What is driving the Christian Transhuman movement *What methods are currently being used to gradually indoctrinate Church and society with utopian transhuman concepts *Why going from flawed man to enhanced beast doesn t solve humanity s dilemmas and only serves to reveal deeply-rooted philosophical challenges *The link between artificial intelligence and the image of the Beast from Revelation *Why a pro-transhuman Milieu group is forming at the Vatican right now, and what plans they have in mind for humanity s future *How nanotechnology existing at this moment will soon allow for human-robot offspring and why that might be the very technology that ushers in the Antichrist.PLUS!
