David Letterman nailed the personality of the corporate Scientologist, still apparently understood by public opinion as “Scientologist” without any modifier. Please see the story – and particularly the video clip of his interview with Amy Adams.
Note how Adams is lost for words, and her recognition exhibits by genuine laughter, when Letterman tells her that is how she too feels. Also, listen to the audience agreement with Letterman’s evaluation. Unfortunately folks, that is what we have to work with. That is the legacy of Miscavige.
Fortunately, hopefully over time we can change that reality. I cover pretty thoroughly HOW Letterman’s reality came to be - the process by which the reality he is correctly observing came to be – at chapters 7 through 10 and 13-14 of my book What Is Wrong With Scientology? I cover some suggestions of how Scientologists might free themselves of it at chapters 15 and 16. Perhaps as more Scientologists understand that, they can naturally cease being what the public has come to know as fearsome.
