Warning! I'm a flare star. I flare up from time to time, especially when people damage Liberapedia or Liberal causes.
NOTE: THE WORD IS MISSPELLED ON PURPOSE. DO NOT CORRECT IT.
Advertisements pretending that Scientoillogy improves lives have made me flare up.
It’s a metaphor. Humans aren’t stars. I’m not about to give all my money to that crazy organization.
Why are there regular Scientoillogy advertisements on this site? They are harmful.
The Harm it Does to a Person
The results of applying their crackpot psychotherapy (called "auditing") is to weaken the mind. The mind goes from a rational state to an irrational one as the delusional contents of the subconscious mind are brought to the surface and are assumed to be valid. It also makes a person more susceptible to suggestion since it submerges the critical thinking faculties of the mind into a partial subconscious state. It results in a permanent light hypnotic trance and so from thenceforth that person can be more easily controlled. The person will, to a much greater extent, believe and do whatever they are told. And of course this is used to the full in persuading them to hand over further money and dedicating themselves further to the cult.
The results of applying their oversimplified and inapplicable rules in life is to lose the ability to think rationally and logically. A person loses the ability to think for themselves and so they lose the ability to challenge incorrect ideas. This makes them easier to control. It also isolates and alienates the person from society so that they withdraw from normal society and into their "Scientoillogy" society. This further increases their susceptibility to the influence of their group. They end up being afraid of society, believing all society to be controlled by a group of drug companies, psychiatrists and financiers all of whom report to more remote masters. In other words they are in a state of mass paranoia. They therefore avoid reading newspapers and the like since they fear it will disturb their safe Scientoillogy world. It is a downward spiral into madness.
