L. Ron Hubbard's Great-Grandson Spills The Family Secrets On How Scientology Started. Eek.

Adam Mordecai

Scientology has a history of silencing critics. If you want to know where that history comes from, look no further than the experiences of Jamie DeWolf, the great-grandson of L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Learn his family's story. Then share it.

At 1:46, we learn about L. Ron's dream to con everyone. At 3:40, we hear about the horrifying threats. At 5:42, the church takes the family secrets. At 7:00, I laugh.

If you want to see more of Jamie's awesome work, you could Like him on Facebook and share this. Totally up to you though.
