We've just finished Jenna Miscavige Hill's memoir, Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape , and we can say that it packs a powerful punch in its final pages as the niece of Scientology's leader considers his behavior and its effect on her life, both in and out of the church. Along the way, we get one of the most complete and compelling narratives of how someone grows up in, and falls under the spell of, this organization which wields so much power over its members through interrogation, intimidation, and control. And behind it all is one man, David Miscavige, who comes off as a meddling, tyrannical, but ultimately cowardly man who Jenna and other ex-Scientologists are determined to expose.

It is particularly insidious because of its celebrity advocates and affiliated groups, such as Narconon, Applied Scholastics, and the Citizens Commission on Human Rights," she writes. People like my uncle are enablers who create an environment of fear that discourages independent thought. Get rid of them and you would continue to have a system that, almost by definition, restricts individual freedoms.
