SAN FRANCISCO, CA (RushPRnews) 02/15/09- An outstanding new German documentary about the Scientology organization has just been subtitled in English and is now available to watch on YouTube. The 45-minute film, The Brainwashers – How Dangerous is Scientology? appeared on ARD, a major German television network, in late January 2009.

The film features interviews with Ursula Caberta, head of Hamburg's task force on Scientology; former Scientologists, including several who had held high positions in the organization; and members of the worldwide "Anonymous" protest movement against the cult. The documentary investigates Scientology's "fair game" revenge policy; its "Rehabilitation Project Force" internal prison system; and its seemingly benign network of "social betterment" spin-offs (such as Narconon, Criminon, ABLE, etc.) that in reality exist only to generate income, expand Scientology's power in society, and recruit new Scientologists. It also examines the mysterious 2008 death of Scientology critic Shawn Lonsdale; and much more.

The Brainwashers: How Dangerous is Scientology?

The Scientology cult was founded in 1950 by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard. Its primary goal is to "clear the planet" by "obliterating psychiatry." Scientology's many front groups include the Citizens' Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), Criminon, Narconon, and Applied Scholastics. Scientology claims to be the "world's fastest growing religion," with some 8 million members, but mainstream demographic surveys have shown that the number of members is closer to 55,000 worldwide, and declining. Scientology is currently under investigation in several countries for a variety of human rights abuses, including child abuse, violation of child labor laws, kidnapping and running secret internal prison camps, as well as for visa fraud and a number of financial crimes. Scientology has already been kicked out of Greece and Italy; in France its leaders are being prosecuted for fraud; it is on very thin ice as well in Belgium, Norway, and other European countries. While Scientology is not illegal in Germany, the nation has declared it a "threat to democracy," just as they have done with organized crime and Islamic extremist groups.
