That’s the frustrating bit.
If the ideas could exist without the initiate framework and providing financial means to the religion, we wouldn’t need this “you HAVE to watch all 2h of it and we can’t diagram any ideas outside of the context of it” like I’m having the doors locked in on me because someone’s forcing my eyelids open to watch a L Ron Hubbard theatrical production.
Being biased is fine!
I bias myself by researching and following non-mainstream figures and ideas all the time.
And my god do I waste a lot of my life-energy following movements of individuals, because I’m seeking a better way.
I do not want to sign myself up for The Better Way To Utopia Give Us Your Money and also Blood Libel Movement.
If I need to watch a series of 3 documentaries, you’ve failed to make your point how these people are somehow involved making a better world beyond explaining that you take them at their world because they’ve stirred your emotions.
Which is cool! But for all the complaints about “bias”, you’re wanting us to be biased towards the emotional sway the “documentary” has on you, not the unadorned contents and any facts contained within.
If you want to engage with people, bringing up any salient points that can be discussed beyond drawing people into The Zeitgeist Movement would be great.
