It’s the fact that the domination you’re getting—hit in the face, kicked—and you can’t do anything about it.

Mike Haggis, appearing in the New Yorker magazine.

The New Yorker publiched a fascinating interview and story with and about Paul Haggis, the Academy Award winning filmmaker.  He was one of the loudest celebrities to leave the Church of Scientology, so his testimony is fasincating for many reasons.

The story includes many interesting details.  There’s also this quote from Mike Rinder.

The defectors told the newspaper that Miscavige was a serial abuser of his staff. “The issue wasn’t the physical pain of it,” Rinder said. “It’s the fact that the domination you’re getting—hit in the face, kicked—and you can’t do anything about it. If you did try, you’d be attacking the C.O.B.”—the chairman of the board.

You can read the whole story on the New Yorker’s website.

The article was written by Lawrence Wright, who went on to write “Going Clear.” Read it if you haven’t already.
