Here is a link to a CLO Africa Executive Directive written on the 19th of January 2010. It is addressed to all African Scientologists. You can read the whole thing here: CLO AF ED 768. It was written by the now deposed Ken Krieger who has been a most efficient soldier for current Scientology culture.
Firstly, thanks to the person who found this and sent it in.
Everything inside the church is push push push. It must be done now, we are the brink of success, just a little further. It’s right there. This document is nearly 4 years old and for all the push and rush almost no further progress has been made. Yet it is still pushed today like it is urgent, rush and right now. Straight up and vertical! When viewed over time we see progress is nothing but horizontal at best.
Here are some notable excerpts from this document:
“It is unshakable Command Intention that we put Ideal Orgs everywhere across the globe. In order to get enough people onto and through new OT VII, it is a must. In fact, this is how we are going to clear the planet.”
“Unshakable command intention”. Cannot be changed, discussed, disagreed with. We should all have learned by now that there has been a subtle process of changing what ‘command intention’ is. This is David Miscavige intention and has nothing to do with L. Ron Hubbard, lest there be any doubt.
There is a two paragraph LRH quote about buildings. No reference is given, just “LRH”.
“As things stand today AF Cont delivers well over 200% more training and processing than it did in the 1970s. We send more people for OT levels, we make more auditors, we have larger pools of people in training for orgs and we have more public in orgs receiving the tech than we did in those days to such a degree it is not worthy of comparison. JBG Org, after its grand opening as an Ideal Org in 2003, expanded by 500% in the ensuing 18 months to become one of the largest CL V orgs in the world…”
Even though Joburg expanded by 500% it was still only 200% bigger than the 1970s? While we dispute the figure of 500% expansion there is no doubt there was expansion in those 18 months. What is not mentioned is that by early 2006 growth had stalled and reversed. The org was now running at the same levels it had in 2002 to 2003 before the grand opening. However, it was now running at far higher operating costs.
“We buy and own our own church buildings so that we remain free from the economic follies of planet Earth. Ideal Orgs are the sole guarantee we will always be able to operate.”
“There are those misinformed few that don’t truly understand why we must make every org an Ideal Org right now. Sometimes they make it difficult for others to participate in the program. Sometimes they preach defeatism or that it can’t or shouldn’t be done. Sometimes they say it should be done differently or it could be done better. But in most cases they are critically commenting upon the hard work and contributions of others without putting their own shoulders to the wheel. And worst of all they misquote policy out of context appearing to be expert about something they know little of.”
What? On the first page of this issue there is a two paragraph LRH quote with no reference to where it came from and which appears terribly out of context.
Secondly, any presentation of facts or logic about ideal orgs is viewed as “misinformed”, “critical” and “defeatist” even when presented by successful business people. People who might be considered expert by the rest of the world.
And just for laughs this gem at the end:
“Together we will complete funding the renovations of all our Ideal Orgs by Mar 2010 and by this time next year we will start opening these orgs one after the other as fully ideal in every way.”
