MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Can anyone clarify just what the hell this guy is rambling on about?

SCIENTOLOGY EXPLAINED IN SIMPLE LANGUAGE BY TOM CRUISE. WHAT I WOULDN'T GIVE FOR A PUBLIC DEBATE WITH THIS GUY ENTITLED "WHICH WAY FORWARD FOR HUMANITY - SOCIALISM OR SCIENTOLOGY?"

THIS VIDEO WAS REMOVED FROM GOOGLE AND YOUTUBE, BUT I'VE BRAZENLY RE-UPLOADED IT, HAVING DOWNLOADED IT FROM GAWKER

I HOPE IT STAYS HERE. IF SCIENTOLOGY IS THE PANACEA FOR HUMANITY THAT ITS PROPAGANDISTS CLAIM, THEN THEY SHOULD HAVE NO OBJECTION TO ME ALLOWING ONE OF ITS MOST CELEBRATED ADVOCATES EXPOUNDING ITS BEAUTY ON THIS SITE.

Yesterday's Guardian carries an interesting piece entitled "German historian likens Cruise to Goebbels" and from which I briefly quote:

'The long-standing antagonism between Germany and the Church of Scientology escalated over the weekend when a high-profile historian compared Tom Cruise's performance in a Scientology video with the style of the Nazi propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels.

‘Guido Knopp, who has written a number of books on Hitler and his inner circle, said the video, which surfaced on YouTube last week, "inevitably" recalled Goebbels' speech in a Berlin sports stadium when he asked "Do you want total war?" and the crowd thundered "Yes!"’

Speaking of Nazis, Germany is considering banning Scientology, because it "conflict with the principles of the nation's constitution" just like they ban the Nazi party.
