Tom Cruise in Scientology Video–We Are the Way to Happiness

Tom Cruise explains it all for you–9 minutes worth. Here’s hoping that SP’s don’t blast this off the site.

Irrepressible scallywag Mark Ebner has those cult videos so craved by internet addicts. Well, kinda. He’s got the descriptions, as the actual videos vanished into the ethernet, as the NYDN explains.

Here’s a Glossary, for those who don’t speak wacko:

KSW (short for Keeping Scientology Working): A policy written by Hubbard in the 1960′s that requires all Scientologists to follow his words and his rules exactly.

Orgs: organizations, i.e., all churches of Scientology throughout the world.

David Miscavige: current leader of Scientology.

Out-ethics: any behavior that violates any of Hubbard’s rules of conduct.

Put ethics in on someone else: make others conform
to Hubbard’s rules of behavior.

Criminon: Scientology front group that tries to recruit through the prisons.

SP: Suppressive Person. Anyone that doesn’t like Scientology and/or criticizes Scientology.

PTS/SP: Hubbard term to define behavior that goes against Scientology rules.

LRH technology or “tech”: all the Scientology policies, rules, mandates, procedures.
