The Scientology Wars


This speech was given at a CAN conference in 1992, before CAN was taken over by Scientology.  Jolly West talks about the battles Scientology has engaged in against anyone who speaks out about the group.

Louis Jolyon (“Jolly”) West was an American psychiatrist, human rights activist and expert on brainwashing, mind control, torture, substance abuse, post traumatic stress disorder and violence.

Former Scientologist Hannah Whitfield introduces Jolly West in Part 1.

    Hannah is very funny. Does she still speak out against the cult?

    Is there a new version of CAN, one that does what CAN did before Scientolgy bankrupt them?

    Cults are the future of world conflict. Al Queda is a cult.

  2. XENU TV Says:

    I believe Hannah and her husband Jerry still help people who have been abused by Scientology. You can see her in a lot of the TV documentaries made during the 90’s. She was always an elegant and eloquent spokesperson.

    I don’t think there are any current groups doing what CAN once did. Scientology now runs CAN. The Leo J. Ryan Foundation died when Bob Minton was no longer able to keep them afloat. I think the same happened to AFF but I could be mistaken.

  3. Eldon Says:

    The AFF is still around. The name has been changed to International Cultic Studies Association.

  4. Susan DeNymme Says:

    I’d like your opinion on this. I’ve read some extremely damning statements about Dr. West online. It has been implied that he is a CIA programmer, involved in MK Ultra and other nefarious projects. Do you think that originated as a fair game smear?
