Work Description

The author details the horrors of his slave-like existence as a captive Scientologist whose parents were in the organization and who was forced to attend Scientology schools, do Scientology course work, and who, out of desperation, joined the sea-org at fifteen. The punitive, coercive, and sadistic nature of the organization and the horrors he lived through are vividly told in a chilling, conversational account of event upon event showing how dramatically dysfunctional the workings of the organization were, and how rooted in personal power and emotional blackmail.

Excerpts

I got to start with the work portion of the EPF. I was assigned to a unit that was working in the galley. Potland was an overlowing mountain of dirty pots that never diminished no matter how many people were assigned to clean them. One of the girls in the same unit as me Heather Ashworth, was about eight years old. She was rather tiny, too small to stand next to the sink and wash pots-so she was in the sink washing the pots! Standing in the water with a scrub brush in hand cleaning the pots. Never once did I see a single hair net, gloves or any kind of smock. Everyone had their standard issue blue shorts and t-shirts with their worn out black combat boots.
