This story touched me deeply. What a brave girl Astra Woodcraft is to escape the Sea Org, a very strict sect within the sect of Scientology. I believe this is one of the worst things that can happen to a person – being deceited into believing some meaningless stories that lead one to separation from one’s family and friends. There is no education within a sect and the lack of education, actually leads people into sects in the first place. The sect and religion in general give a person a false feeing of comfort and sense, but in fact they only feed on the people’s income, energy and other resources.
Several friends of my parents are in various sects right now and it’s so hard to be aquainted to such people, because you see how wrong they are, but often you don’t have enough influence and strength to drag them out of this abyss. However, you can fight sects and examples like Astra Woodcraft prove that to us.
