    I don't know where. It is not showing on HBO or anywhere on cable. According to my search function in Comcast, it's not scheduled. If it's around somewhere that isn't a film festival, where a regular Jane Q Public could see it, I'd love to know. Maybe the answer is buried in some of the many posts I've not seen, but in any event, I've no idea of where to find it. Hulu???

    Somebody, who apparently has the e-mail addresses of major Scn celebrities, sent them a message asking for their response to the HBO film. Here's a sampling of their personal answers:



    Because they all responded identically, a followup question was sent to them, asking: It seems that your answer is remarkably similar to other Scientology celebrities. How do you account for this?

    It is not released to the public yet. It is just showing at Sundance....where they screen new movies.

    There was a post about a distribution company that had bought the rights to show it.....but don't know where that post is.

    That post where you highlighted the 'individuality' of the scientologists brings to mind a scene from Life of Brian:

    This major media meltdown presents some very fascinating questions:

    1. WHY DID SCIENTOLOGY "PULL IN" THIS "MOTIVATOR"?


    2. WHY DIDN'T THE SCIENTOLOGY OT'S POSTULATES WORK TO STOP THIS FILM?


    3. HOW CAN A WOG DOCUMENTARY FILM MAKER BE TOTAL CAUSE OVER THE COMBINED MIGHT & SUPERNATURAL POWERS OF ALL OF THE OTS IN SCIENTOLOGY, WORLDWIDE?


    4. WHY DIDN'T THE ADMIN TECH WORK TO PREVENT THIS DOCUMENTARY?


    5. WHY DIDN'T THE ETHICS TECH WORK TO STOP THIS SUPPRESSION?


    6. WHY DIDN'T THE INTERNATIONAL OSA NETWORK STOP THIS DOCUMENTARY?


    7. IF RON SAID THAT THE ONLY REASON FOR GETTING ATTACKED IS "NO RESULTS", SHOULDN'T SCIENTOLOGY BE VERY BUSY RIGHT NOW GIVING SCIENTOLOGISTS CREDIT, REFUNDS AND PROFUSE APOLOGIES? ​


    So, why (despite all the tech and super-human OTs) did this documentary find a welcoming partner in HBO--the world's largest cable tv company, with 33,000,000 US subscriber-households plus distribution to another 151 countries, covering approximately 114 million additional foreign subscribers?


    ANSWER: Payback.

    INFO: In 1991 Scientology filed a $461m defamation lawsuit vs Time. Remember this?

    The suit was vicious and lasted many years, costing Time an estimated $7M in legal fees, before finally being fully exonerated.

    SO WHAT DOES THIS HAVE TO DO WITH HBO? HBO is owned by Time/Warner.

    As any responsible journalist would, I sent this theory to HBO management, asking for their comments or response. Here is what they sent back:

    It hits HBO mid March which gives a month and a half until the book is due to be released.

    I think there's been a tendency to overlook Tom Cruise's role in shoring up an unpopular and ineffective leader. David Miscavige 'delivers' Tom Cruise. It's virtually all he brings to the party. Now, if a surge in media interest were to force Tom Cruise to decide: move career or cult front-man...

    I think he'd choose to get out - as he did before. But if David Miscavige is no longer delivering Tom Cruise, and in the light of recent failures... perhaps it would be time for a new COB?

    There's no one left to replace him. He's Chairman of a hypothetical Board now. He answers to no one.

    IMO the cult collapses before he is replaced. He may be implementing that escape plan many have suspected him of having.

    Time to implement Bluebird Tech soon. LOL!

    It depends on how the whales react. Slappy still has a lot more cash he can extract from the likes of Duggan if they keep on, and I just don't see him as the type to cut and run when he thinks there is more money to be had. I think he's pathologically incapable of walking away when there is even still one sucker on the line. Laffy was the same way, I think.

    So don't count him out yet. The followers left are largely comprised of the most brainwashed, the most easily led, the most emotionally tied to the tech for whatever reason. The cult almost died many times. This is a boxing match. Our side just scored a massive body blow followed by a tight uppercut, but the opponent is still on his feet.

    I'm elated today, but don't let this emotional high make you think Slappy's going to hit the canvas this year. I'm betting he won't.

    When it comes to the cult, always keep this song in mind:

    I didn't mean that DM would be escaping soon. I think a lot more needs to happen before that becomes an option.

    Well, I see that I did use the word "soon". I was using 'Wishful Thinking' tech. AKA postulates. Lol...

    I do think that no one will replace him, and that the cult would instead just collapse.

    I agree with that. Chan, Cardone, Flasch, Chen, Ethier, and a few others will try to fight over the scraps, but it will crumble and shred in their hands as they try to grasp it. Most cults don't survive the death of their founders, this one was a huge exception, based on the strength of the glue Laffy put in the trap. But Miscavige has been weakening that glue over the years by making himself part of the matrix without adding anything to its strength. Now, only those completely covered in glue have not escaped, and when he goes, the glue will turn to dust and the cult will shatter.
