The organization has a history of attempting to intimidate those who oppose the organization via the internet as well as in the courts through unfounded law suits.
The members of this organization believe that its members problems are caused by the spirits of space aliens that were planted on this planet by and alien ruler "Xenu". The goal is to "clear" the member and get rid of the spirits, thus solving all of their problems. The cost to be cleared is said to be well over $300,000.
This organization is thought by many to be a dangerous cult. The mind control techniques are very effective and many do not leave the organization until the end of their lives.
Recent actions by a group known as anonymous have brought the cult into light in the past year.
