The following is a small excerpt of an interview that I did with Adam Wilcox of True Crime Factor.
"Since its initial development in the mid-1950s, the Church of Scientology has garnered a reputation as one of the most controversial religions in the world. Originally conceived by American science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology has come under intense public scrutiny for its controversial practices, with many former members accusing the organization of mistreating its loyalists while employing damaging policies against ex-Scientologists which they say have been instrumental in destroying many families.
Ron Miscavige is the father of David Miscavige, the undisputed leader of Scientology who assumed control of the group following Hubbard’s death in 1986. Ron was associated with Scientology for 42 years and served as a member of the Sea Organization – Scientology’s highest branch – before departing in 2012.
Ron partnered with St. Martin’s Press to pen his memoir, Ruthless: Scientology, My Son David Miscavige, and Me. The book was released in May 2016 and reached the top spot on the New York Times Best Sellers list.
Ron Miscavige kindly spoke with me on the morning of July 11 to discuss the book, his decades-long tenure in Scientology and the state of the organization under his son David’s regime." Click for full interview
