My experience about scientology is that if you belong and you have extremely much money scientology can be a nice experience and a nice community. But If you don’t belong or if you run out of money then they v\can and often are violent controlling and people have paid whit there lives. They have left a long chain of wrecked families a string of corruption that crosses the entire globe. They have even managed to make documents from the state archives in Paris disappear under a trial on tax fraud. That is the only time in 300 years documents have disappeared from those archives. They have even taken over a couple of small towns in USA including the sheriff’s department. So they have an impressive portfolio when it comes to resources. But few people can say they lives has been better after contact whit scientology.
