I mean "Going Clear" just last week as well as est four decades ago. My friends tell me that it is a kind of updated replay of the TIME article from days gone by. Again, I missed it. I simply do not have cable/satellite TV (never have, never will). I lack the time, temperament, and taste for "1,000 channels of nothing to watch." Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief won’t come as a huge surprise to anyone who’s read Lawrence Wright’s devastating, similarly titled book-length exposé. (Nor will your generic ethic officers bat an eyelash over the exposure.) But a movie is a very different thing than a book, for better and for worse." when the time arrives. Part of "Large Group Awareness Training," est was, in my opinion, a short shot at satori for the fools (and their recently separated money). esties would buy a bumper sticker and drive around with this tangible representation of their gullibility on the ass-end of their CVC, BMW, or rent-a-wreck. LITIGATION. And the other word: CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY. *There is evidence that many of those who sign up for LGAT programs such as Landmark Forum are having major problems in their lives. Y. Klar, R. Mendola, J. D. Fischer, R. C. Silver, J. M. Chinsky and B. Goff, reported in the Journal of Consulting & Clinical Psychology [990;58(1):99-108] 'google' your favorite LGAT and either the word "suicide" or the word "litigation." O.K. - fair enough?

CONTEXT In the 1950s, the Beatniks were a youth subculture. Bob Denver plays a Beatnik HERE Within the transition from the Beatnik subculture to the Hippie Subculture (e.g. the 1960s), popularized SF Zen emerged. Zen, in the N.Y.C. area had arrived a decade or so earlier. That is/was the Alan Watts, D.T. Suzuki wave of Zen. SF Zen Center was part of the Haight Ashbury Scene in San Francisco. Another factor during that time was the "free love" movement Richard Baker did not divorce himself from the Scene in San Francisco - especially around the Haight. What I am saying is that Rickard Baker was not evil. He simply did not detach himself from the world of hedonism that surrounded Zen Center. That was, at worst, a weakness on his part. Hedonism's motto was: "Find your pleasures and maximize them." Drugs, sex, and rock and roll.
