GONE IN 60 SECONDS: FULL TEXT OF SCIENTOLOGY 'KNOWLEDGE' SPOT

To the curious. The inquisitive. The seekers of knowledge. 
To the ones who just wanna know. 
About life. 
About the universe. About yourself. 
Not cute questions. 
Big questions, ones that matter. 
To the rebels, the artists, the free thinkers and the innovators. 
Who care less about labels and more about truth. 
Who believe non-conformity is more than a bumper sticker. 
That knowledge is more than words on a page. 
You're young. 
You're old. 
You're powerful beyond measure and the fuel of that power is not magic or mysticism, but knowledge. 
The things you see. 
The things you feel. 
The things you know to be true. 
Sure, some will doubt you. 
Let 'em. 
Dare to think for yourself. 
To look for yourself. 
To make up your own mind. 
Because in the eternal debate for answers, the one thing that's true is what's true for you.

I have a friend whose family got into Scientology. None of them seem to ever really be happy and after 30 seconds into any conversation with you they are trying to get you to come into one of their places for a free audit. I have read more than the just their Dianetics book (re-branding in the 80's). est. was a breakaway group, and they are now called The Landmark Forum.

NPR had a spot about them the other night.  Didn't they officially organize as a church to get out of a bunch of back taxes.  Seems they gathered dirt on IRS auditors and got out of a bundle.

Pretty much and they infiltrated church members into IRS jobs to snoop. 

 

 

Operation Snow White was the Church of Scientology's name for a conspiracy during the 1970s to purge unfavorable records about Scientology and its founder L. Ron Hubbard. This project included a series of infiltrations and thefts from 136 government agencies, foreign embassies and consulates, as well as private organizations critical of Scientology, carried out by Church members, in more than 30 countries;[1] the single largest infiltration of the United States government in history[2] with up to 5,000 covert agents.[3] This was also the operation that exposed 'Operation Freakout', because this was the case that initiated the US government investigation of the Church.[3]

Under this program, Scientology operatives committed infiltrationwiretapping, and theft of documents in government offices, most notably those of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service. Eleven highly-placed Church executives, including Mary Sue Hubbard (wife of founder L. Ron Hubbard and second-in-command of the organization), pleaded guilty or were convicted in federal court of obstructing justice, burglary of government offices, and theft of documents and government property. The case was United States v. Mary Sue Hubbard et al., 493 F.Supp. 209 (D.D.C. 1979).[4][5][6][

They do not mind spending a large amount of time and cash in lawsuits with the IRS.
