Another point here Mark Baker is that you, per your argument, do not mind having your sense of choice manipulated, or you are suggesting that all your involvement in scio is by your own choice. Many exes feel that their choice was covertly sabotaged. But you don't. You do it all because you want to?
Any involvement I have ever had with scientology was by personal choice. This includes the choice to leave when I concluded that Co$ management could not be trusted to abide by their own broadly published policies.
