TOM CRUISE, MATT LAUER ON SCIENTOLOGY AND PSYCHOLOGY

Note from Rayelan:
This morning actor and Scientologist, Tom Cruise did an interview on the Today Show with Matt Lauer. During the interview Matt brought up his feud with Brook Shields. Brooke used an anti-depressant to deal with post partum depression. Cruise criticized her for using drugs to deal with psychological problems and a feud erupted between the two.
Why did Cruise criticize Brooke? Because Scientology believes psychology is useless... a pseudo science. Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard hated psychology because a Navy psychiatrist diagnosed him with some kind of psychological problems. That being said... for the most part, I agree with what Tom Cruise has to say about psychology... that it's a pseudo science... and I have a DEGREE in psychology!!
When you read what Cruise has to say, you agree with him. Of course you do... That's the purpose of this interview! What he is saying about drugs and the tendency for doctors to prescribe easy fixes rather than have people look at their diets or other factors is accurate. The Easy Fix aka prescribe drugs, is the one advocated by doctors today because insurance companies only let a doctor spend 15 minutes with each patient.
How much can a doctor find out about a patient in 15 minutes. If the patient says he's depressed, the doctor doesn't have time to find out if the cause is food based, relationship based, or chemically based. The doctor prescribes a pill and if it works... hooray! If it doesn't work, the doctor prescribes another pill and another and another until the patient dies, kills someone or wakes up and realizes that these pills aren't the answer!
Tom Cruise and I agree on this. So... what's my beef with Cruise? His solution!
His solution is Scientology. In my opinion Scientology is the worst possible thing that could happen to a person! Before anyone becomes a Scientologist, they should read a few things about Scientology.
The first place to start is with the Lisa McPherson Foundation. The link to her Foundation is on this page:
Before you or anyone else decides to investigate Scientology, here's another page to read:
Why Are They Dead?
The site with the most information is this one:
The Cult Awareness Network used to have information about the dangers of Scientology, but they were sued by Scientology and put out of business. Scientology now owns the site. The same thing happens to many sites that try to expose Scientology. Their owners are sued or harassed until they stop or Scientology owns them.
One way to find out about Scientology is to put the word in Google. Even though Scientology has sued Google and forced them to take down many sites, there are still enough up to keep MOST intelligent people from getting involved.
Two lawyers who were involved with the Cult Awareness Network and Scientology are detailed in the following article. You might recognize ONE of the names. I wonder if her present employer is aware of this connection to Scientology. I also wonder how many other employees of this organization are Scientologists. The article is fascinating!!
Here's a tiny snip from the article:
Coale represented fellow Scientologist Lisa Marie Presley in her divorce from singer Michael Jackson.
In 1993, the husband-and-wife legal team played a small role in Scientology's campaign to take over the Cult Awareness Network, or CAN. Church-backed lawsuits bankrupted the organization, which helped people leave Scientology.
Still can't guess who the OTHER famous name in this article is and which company she works for? I guess you'll just have to click and read!
Tom Cruise's appearance on the Today Show will bring MANY unsuspecting people to Scientology. The techniques that Scientology uses to "audit" people appear to have been created at the NWO's scientific center, Tavistock. This is where most of the Mind Control techniques that are used throughout the world have been pioneered. The laboratory depicted in the film Clockwork Orange was patterned after Tavistock. Some in Hollywood have been trying to warn us about this for a very long time. Others in Hollywood use their fame (or their fame is used) to entice and attract people to Scientology.
The techiniques used by Scientolgy are so advanced that with only ONE audit, people are "hooked" for life. The process of getting "clear" involves revealing much personal information, such as sexual affairs, cheating on income tax, or worse. This information is then used in various ways (use your imagination) to insure that the member never leaves Scientology.
There are TWO versions of the Lauer interview with Cruise. One ison the MSNBC webpage... the other on Matt Drudge's.
The Drudge transcript is the best...
To me the Drudge transcript looks as if it was created from a taped video of the show. The official transcript appears to have been edited.
Here's a snip from the Official transcript... I hope it will whet your appetite to read all of the interview and the one on Drudge as well:
Cruise: Matt. Matt, Matt, you don't even — you're glib. You don't even know what Ritalin is. If you start talking about chemical imbalance, you have to evaluate and read the research papers on how they came up with these theories, Matt, okay? That's what I've done. Then you go and you say where's the medical test? Where's the blood test that says how much Ritalin you're supposed to get?
Lauer: It's very impressive to listen to you. Because clearly, you've done the homework. And you know the subject.
Cruise: And you should. And you should do that also. Because just knowing people who are on Ritalin isn't enough. You should be a little bit more responsible in knowing really —
Lauer: I'm not prescribing Ritalin, Tom. And I'm not asking anyone else to do it. I'm simply saying, I know some people who seem to have been helped by it.
Cruise: But you're saying this is a very important issue.
Lauer: I couldn't agree more.
Cruise: It's very — and you know what? You're here on the "Today" show.
Cruise: And to talk about it in a way of saying, "Well, isn't it okay," and being reasonable about it when you don't know and I do, I think that you should be a little bit more responsible in knowing what it is.
Lauer: But —
Cruise: Because you communicate to people.
Lauer: But you're now telling me that your experiences with the people I know, which are zero, are more important than my experiences.
Cruise: What do you mean by that?
Lauer: You're telling me what's worked for people I know or hasn't worked for people I know. I'm telling you, I’ve lived with these people and they're better.
Cruise: So, you're advocating it.
Lauer: I am not. I'm telling you in their case, in their individual case, it worked. I am not gonna go out and say, "Get your kids on Ritalin. It's the cure-all and the end-all."
Cruise: Matt, but here's the point. What is the ideal scene for life? Okay. The ideal scene is someone not having to take antipsychotic drugs.
Lauer: I would agree.
Cruise: Okay. So, now you look at a departure from that ideal scene, is someone taking drugs, okay. And then you go, okay. What is the theory and the science behind that, that justifies that?
Lauer: Let me take this more general, because I think you and I can go around in circles on this for awhile. And I respect your opinion. Do you want more people to understand Scientology? Would that be a goal of yours?
Cruise: You know what? Absolutely. Of course, you know.
