Just go quietly

POSTER-OM-UK-DONT-BE-SILENTThere was a very interesting post on Mike Rinder’s blog yesterday titled Lying and Fundamentalist Scientology.

If you haven’t read it yet, it is well worth doing so. In the course of that article he publishes the text of en email he received, apparently from a Scientologist, in which he is written off as an enemy of mankind because he has dared to speak up. One passage in particular caught our attention:

“Why would anyone run to the press, post videos, start a blog, and ramble on and on and on and on, compulsively, unable to get your attention off COB or the Church? Why? Why Mike Rinder? Can’t you just shut up and leave, go do something else?”

It caught our attention because over the course of the last 2 years the line of “go quietly” has surfaced with numerous people who have left the church or who have been declared. They have been told directly “you are quite free to leave. Just go quietly.”

This sums up the current effort to clean up the field of Scientology in South Africa and get it firmly back under the control of the church. They want it to go away, they want the noise to subside so they can get on with business as usual.

“If they can all just go away quietly we can carry on, pretending all is well”. The sooner the field can forget about the Corbett’s, the Hogarth’s, the Jelly’s, the Kroeger’s and the other stellar names that have been cast aside the sooner we can focus their attention on the urgent donations we desperately need right now.

The church has gotten away with it for so long because, we believe, of three reasons:

  1. First, foremost and most importantly: Disconnection. This remains the ultimate tool of control.
  2. Slow comm lines. Before the Internet it was almost impossible to rally any kind of underground movement. This has all changed with the Internet. The global “out” community is growing and instantly communicating.
  3. Forcing people to “go quietly”. They could get people to do this, in large measure, because of points 1 & 2.

We hope through this blog to strengthen the movement of Scientologists outside the church. We have no demand or requirement of what “Scientologist” means. It means what it means to each individual. By having a way for such people to be in comm we make it difficult for the field to forget. We are here and communicating daily and in so doing more and more people become aware of it and they will add their stories and so the community grows.

We won’t go quietly. Eventually, with luck and persistence, it will become easier to clean up the mess that the church has become than to waste ever growing resources to fighting those speaking up on the outside.

Let’s not forget. Let’s not be quiet.

And, of course, a happy new year to everyone. 2014 is going to be a great one!

  1. These are some quotes from an LRH reference that I thought were quite excellent and apropos to this situation:

    Attitude and Conduct of Scientology
    4th London ACC, 3 November 1955
    From Pages 1-4 (transcript)
    :
    “The next thing we’ve learned [in the first 5 years of active organization] is that organizational problems are best resolved by Scientology and that there are exactly two methods by which personnel can be handled – two methods. And these are very sharp and very definitive, organizationally. They are handled in one of these two ways…
    The two ways of handling those who are not getting something done is, one, process them and, two, disconnect them from the organization but not from Scientology. Got that?”
    [LRH then clarifies that we assume these people are Scientologists.]
    #####
    “But we do not, I repeat, do not, separate them from Scientology or Scientology organizations, nor at any moment fail to give them organizational support or cooperation in the starting of any new activity in which they wish to engage for the benefit of Scientology. You got that?
    “In other words, the arduous lesson along this line is that no-communication lists, revocation/suspension of certificates, court action of any kind whatsoever within the realm of Scientology and so forth, is not only – not only difficult to do but does not work. That’s just the end of it. It just doesn’t work.It’s for the sea gulls. That might work in Gestetner Limited or Westinghouse, but it does not work in Scientology. Got that?”
    …”When a person becomes part of Scientology in general or the organization in particular, they are part of our own time continuum. And enturbulences which affect them and separate them out of an orderly existence, kick back madly all the way across the whole set of dynamics and you have apparently practically offered to kill somebody. I think mere capital punishment is not a fitting description of comparable magnitude.
    “See, you say, ” Well, that’s all right. Don’t come around to this group anymore. You go away. Now that you have been booted out, why, you’re off of communication and we’re not going to do anything for you and don’t associate with us anymore” and so forth. This creates one awful reaction. I’ll tell you why I know it creates one awful reaction. These people don’t spin necessarily, but their retaliatory gestures demonstrate that they have received a motivator of enormous magnitude. I can tell you how it seems to them by what they do.
    “They practically devote the rest of their lives and all of their actions and attention and everything else to trying to get even with you or remedy the situation somehow or something. This is one of the more fabulous things, so that it must be something of magnitude.
    “It evidently doesn’t compare to simply being ejected out of a country or ejected out of some kind of universe or out of a family or something of the sort, you know? It isn’t evidently of comparable magnitude. This is a very great oddity I wish to point out to you.
    “In the first place, Scientology is a road out of and into universes.”
    […] “I merely wish you to look at the enormous actions undertaken by people who have been ejected from organizations and otherwise. They seldom go off and suck their thumb dismally. They seldom do this. They might go completely into apathy…, [but t]hey usually come in there fighting with violence; they’ve got to do something of magnitude.”
    * * *
    “See, we don’t quite understand the magnitude of the injury and the magnitude is considerable.”
    * * *
    “It’s because they are people of good intention. And by saying that these people are not fit to associate with us anymore, we have told a lie of magnitude. This is not true. It’s never true. You got it?”
    From Page 9
    “Our inability to understand the actions of other Scientologists has a very fascinating barrier. The limitation on our understanding is simply this: we say they have bad intentions, and that is a lie. Got it?
    “So the whole situation is liable to enturbulate around that postulated bad intention. That’s what enturbulates the situation. That makes a lie.
    “The situation then becomes unsolvable. Because we’ve entered a changing factor called a lie into it.”
    From Page 11
    “The most valuable asset we have, actually, is our ability to understand, to do the right thing, to be kind, to be decent.”
    From Page 13-14
    “Well, I hate to unsettle a very stable datum, if it does unsettle it. But the only way anything ever does resolve is by letting your own kind heart reach through. That’s the only way it ever does solve.
    “And it never solves by being tough.”
    * * *
    “It is proving more and more and more, that it’s not a safe thing to do [ARC break a Scientologist]. Not a safe thing from the standpoint of a vested interest, or something like that, to attack Scientologists. They’re too agile, they communicate, they talk. Get the idea? I mean, they do upsetting things. They don’t go back and sit down apathetically and say that’s the end of that.
    “They write letters. They do things. They think of ideas. They think of ways to get a communication line through.”
    From Page 17
    “What do we really have of value in the organizations of Scientology? The only thing we have of value, actually, is Scientology, an understanding of life, increasing ability to communicate, a good concept and grip on reality and the ability to like guys. That’s all you got.
    “When you knock out one of those or degrade one of those, you’ve got less than you had before. You’ve got less organization than you had before.
    “When we drop the various points of the ARC Triangle in their fullest meaning, we drop also the assets of the organization. And I mean that literally. I mean we drop the mimeograph machine, just like that, you know. Bang!”
    * * *
    “And there’s only one more thing that we could know that would make us all feel very, very relaxed about the whole thing. There isn’t a person anywhere in Scientology who has bad intentions for Scientologists or their fellow man. And that point all by itself is very well worth thinking about the next time some trouble arises in your vicinity, because that is the truth. And if you handle a situation with that in mind, you will solve the situation.”

    • What a great quote, it would be good to get that delivered to our friends in OSA. I know of someone who was told to disconnect from us and shown the Fair Game policy letter. They specifically pointed to the line in the policy referring to being ridden over and the OSA terminal told the person” we take this literally”. Close to a murder threat I would say! How far removed is this from the LRH quote above.
      The right thing to do in this case is assign and enforce the enemy condition that the Church is dramatizing or you will land up with that condition and I for one will no longer take on their condition.
      Unfortunately the same thing applies to anyone in doubt on any of the activities taking place in the church right now such as IAS, fund raising and tech changes; if you do not apply the condition then the rest of your dynamics will also drop to that level and the result will be Confusion in your universe

    • The problem with using LRH quotes like this from the 50s is he completely negates them when he comes out with KSW & Ethics in the 60s. Which are designed to Cultify and take away free thinking. Hubbard became what he resisted.

      • Hi Murray,
        I just used the quotes in an attempt to show that at some point LRH did subscribe to using ARC and had the above viewpoints. Whether he changed those views later or not is besides the point. Personal integrity is knowing what you know and believing what you yourself believe whether or not it is still in fashion.

      • Hi Tony, Let me first say I usually don’t say much on blogs over the past 5 yrs I have been out. My wife and I were in for over 40 yrs with lots of training and processing. I have seen these 50s quotes used time and again. The problem is the Church and many Independents subscribe to believe whatever LRH said. So they will take this nice policy and say look how wonderful Ron thought and it agrees with me leaving the Church. LRH dealt with people leaving the Church back when very harshly. His ethics tech, SP tech, KSW, the fair game policy. DB tech, Greatest good for the Greatest number of Dynamics, really I could go on and on had the effect of cultifying (sic). This completely negated those nice ways of handling things he said in the 50s. LRH had a very dim view of Thetans by 1965. He went from man is basically good to we are a bunch of out ethics DBs and PTSs with nothing but overts who needed to be handled. Taken in Chronological order with the later tech being what the Church has followed since 1965. I did the Briefing course when it was done in Chronological order in the 70s. If someone left Scientology as per the fair game policy you could destroy them. So If you use past quotes making LRH seem like a sane individual I personally feel you need to put in a caveat that LRH later changed his viewpoint. It is like the creed which says wonderful things but which LRH did not follow, it was a bunch of PR writing for him. He didn’t want people to have free thought because than it would have been OK to not agree with him. I know most of the South Africans are relatively newly out of the Church. You have a wonderful road ahead with many realizations as to who Hubbard really was and getting un-cultified (sic). The condition of the Church was LRHs doing not Miscavige. It set it up for a Psychopath like Miscavige to take over the Church. From what I have read on Marty’s blog he will be covering this in detail in his next books. Remember you are now free to read and think anything you want. Marty’s books are a great help in “Moving up a Little Bit Higher”. I will leave you with this which is not mentioned much. LRH appears to have died a completely broken man with little friends at his bedside, mostly vultures(see Sarges quotes in Marty’s books and other websites). This does not bold well for the “Road to Total Freedom”.

      • Thanks again Murray.
        I have been out for years now and don’t call myself a Scientologist. Regardless of how LRH changed things he did write this at one time and I for one find it very true. That was my point. I know a lot of people consider LRH a bad person in the final analysis. What LRH was or was not, isn’t my point here. These are ideas. I like these ideas. If these ideas came from a beggar I would like them. I understand you wanting to warn people but this blog isn’t for that as far as I know. This blog is for people who like LRH and want to continue learning Scientology and/or to be able to communicate about things without bashing LRH. I am here to help people realize that it is okay for them to communicate and at some point on the track LRH had these ideas too. Although personally I am open for discussing anything, I am respecting the limits that are in place on this blog.

      • Thanks Tony, myself and the rest of the Pearlman Family are also no longer Scientologists. Yes, LRH did have some good things to say. It is great to see this blog flourishing.

        Happy New Year

    • Amazing quotes Tony. Thanks for taking the time to write this up for us. This certainly puts a different perspective on how things should be.

    • I read the complete lecture. This is the correct viewpoint. The basic law. The fair game buisiness is a non basic idea. it’s not scientology.

      • I always say, if it doesn’t feel good, it’s not Scientology.

        I wonder if Fair Game was actualloy written by LRH and if it was, what had he immediately prior to it experienced to feel so strongly?

    • Great information, Tony. Thanks so much for sharing. I’ve copied and pasted it and saved in my arsenal. And for future use.

      I do remember reading something like this long ago. Nice to see it in PT.

      So great to be associated with people who’ve got a few ‘tricks’ up their sleeves!

      • Murray has made some salient points and has not been properly acknowledged thus, in my opinion. Thanks for visiting us, Murray.
        Many in the Free Zone still want to believe things were hunky dory and not willing to confront that it wasn’t, actually. I’m not one to keep my head in the sand overly long. The truth is not always what we want but it is the truth.
        LRH did set it up so that it would backfire the way it has, no doubt about it. However, there is still valuable tech that can be used despite this. I’m going for that.

    • Thank you Tony. This explains a lot for me.It also predicts the future of the C of S.
      They are actively building an army of disaffected/declared individuals who, standing together, form a formidable force. The intention to harm those being declared right now, if carried through, and we are seeing evidence of that harm now, is going to have a backlash effect of magnitude. My contacts in the US tell me that parishioners are tasked with filing false reports to government and other agencies thereby causing investigations and disruption of business of “declared persons”. One wonders if the C of S in SA will survive the broad scale exposure of their tactics by a powerful group. Rest assured OSA that the above LRH advice is correct.The added dimension you need to be aware of is that there are many of us and you better believe we are not in apathy.

  2. You are so right! Wasn’t it LRH who said something about “the wrong thing to do is nothing”?

    And by continuing to speak you, you are also applying the technology of Scientology far more standardly than OSA and those Scientologists who say you should shut up and disappear.

  3. Rome is burning! The emperor has no clothes and the ides of March are approaching!

    The only words DM need say now is Et tu! A real brave person who has had enough, needs to expose DM with irrefutable damning evidence. Preferably video! You tube loves videos and so do we. The dam wall of silence needs to break from the inside. It needs to be exposed from within or the brainwashees wont listen!

    The above is my postulate. Let it be so, never mind someones front teeth for xmas I want the above, BADLY!!

    • Take heart, Sheeple Bane. See this post on Marti Rathbun’s blog: Moving On Up a Little Higher about a book he’s going to write and aims to have completed and published in 2014. It’s current working title is ‘Scientology Armegeddon’.

      The subject matter is mind boggling. It may be what is needed to take the lid off.

  4. Yes Sheeple Bane.
    Rome burns while Nero plays the fiddle.

    “Go quietly” means
    PLEASE DO NOT POST YOUR HORROR STORIES ON THE WEB OR SHARE THEM VIA EMAIL WITH OTHERS
    DO NOT SPEAK TO THE MEDIA, PRESS, JOURNALISTS AND AUTHORS.
    But let us examine Church actions when you leave ~~

  5. It is so interesting to see how utterly fearful those still in are. We recently sat down at a coffee shop and two “old friends” sat down a few tables away. Despite years of holidays with these people and many happy braai’s and occasions these two got up and promptly moved to seats further away. It truly is so pathetic to see how in fear and duped they are. You would swear us “sp declared people” have the plague!!! I am sorry I didn’t speak out to them right then and there!! I will in the future but oops it may cost them dearly in more sec checks. Gone are the days of self determinism in the corporate church. Even after years and years or friendship the church controls you to the extent that common decency and manners elude you!

    • I was in a shopping mall the other day and bumped into a scio I’ve known for years. She knows I’m on the border but not declared. She gave me a demonstration of what she would do next time she sees me if I AM ever declared. Waving her arms about hysterically she turned her back on me and walked away. When she returned with her smug self-righteous expression I indicated I had duplicated her. She explained in case I hadn’t – “That’s the way it will be”. No right or wrong, no explanation of why, just this is the way it will be if the CoS says so.
      I try not get into comm with scios as it’s become too unreal for me. But she made a comment that ‘Gaye Corbett is INSANE’ – in her hysterical tone of voice – and while it isn’t my business to defend Gaye, I took this as meaning I’m insane as I totally agree with said viewpoint. I therefore responded with more than I should have. I can absolutely understand Gaye’s view above – if I were to keep silent I would be going into agreement with CoS. The day cannot be far when I declare myself.

      • Debbie Jones – sounds like your friend with the waving arms has a strange viewpoint.

        Gaye – if you are reading this….. people who say to other people that you are “insane” are defaming you. I am sure you feel this. If ever you want to take legal action I would be happy to assist / advise / point you in the right direction. There are three defenses to defamation – 1) the truth (calling you insane is not true), 2) its in the public interest (calling you insane is not in the public interest), 3) there has been an apology (which there has not been).

        I hope you are listening OSA. Advise your members to mind their manners, or their and your manners may go on public display.

    • Unreal Lisa. They seem to be not there as actual beings. Kinda running on a synthetic beingness. Interesting in Esto Series 16 the ole man says MOST beings are below existence as beings. Their eyes are wide open but they do not see. Those are the dudes that respond very well to instructions. No thought required.

      If I was there I would have dashed over and given you a hug.

    • Hello Lisa,
      I can imagine how it feels when people you thought you know behave this way. But remember, you are on the winning side of the community. You have nothing to hide, all you ever did (all of your family) was help others and therefore make this world a better place.
      I still remember the days when we (EA) travelled to Bushbuckridge and witnessed the big annual graduations of your students; your achievements were truly remarkable!
      The people who don’t want to know you these days are either very frightened or they have not helped others as you did and therefore you “have to be shunned”!
      You have very good reasons to carry your head high, and proudly so.
      I wish you and your family a very successful 2014.

      • I remember those days!!! Hard work but amazing results. Thank you for all your support, back then and now!!!!! It is amazing how many good people there are out here!!!!!!!!

  6. If the church had asked me to disconnect from the people I love I would have told them to shove it, no one ever tells me what to do. The last conversation I had with my dearest friend I told her I respect her choice of remaining a scientologist and we can still be friends, she said “how can we now”. My heart has never healed from that loss. I am angry and i will never remain quiet!

  7. Happy New Year ScnAfrica and all new and old friends. I wish everyone who looks in here a wonderful now and wonderful future. I postulate justice and truth in 2014.

    • And happy New Year to Debbie Cook and Wayne Baumgarten. Your 2012 New Year’s email lives on. May happiness follow you like a shadow!

      • Happy New Year Debbie Cook and Wayne Baumgarten! Yes, may happiness follow you like a shadow!

  8. I’m going to bring up an uncomfortable fact here. An ‘elephant in the room’, if you will.

    The sad truth is that precious few seem to be willing to hold their position in space by posting to these blogs with their real names. Folks can rail and protest against Miscavige and his robot cult all they want, but the effect they’re creating is muted at best when they do so behind a cloak of anonymity.

    Note that those who’ve caused the greatest impact on the cult, and who’ve consequently endured the brunt of the cult’s tantrums, are those who are overt and public in their denouncements. Let me acknowledge a couple of those notable people, who have already posted to this very thread (hi Karen and Tony!). Those folks have shouldered a heavy load for the rest of us for quite some time now.

    I understand that a lot of former church members remain anonymous because they fear retribution by the church. The loss of family and friends through disconnection is a real threat. I know. I’ve lost a few myself for publicly resigning from the church, as have most Scientologists who’ve chosen to stand their ground, come what may. All I can say is that life goes on, and we will prevail in the end.

    Ask yourself this. How can you convince others to wake up to the facts and rediscover their personal integrity if some among us don’t set a good example? By remaining anonymous, or ‘flying under the radar’, aren’t you going away quietly — just like the chrome steel robots want you to?

    I’d ask every person who’s currently lurking here, or hiding behind a pseudonym, to confront this on whatever gradient is comfortable for them, and consider that this ugly state of affairs will come to an end a whole lot sooner if we all stand our ground together.

    • Ronnie,

      I’ll keep this short. I believe in granting people beingness and letting them decide what is best for their own lives. You want people to act in a way you think will be beneficial to your and their interests. Well, let me say this: I do not want to be associated with Scientology on either side of the fence. It is not good for business and it is in my past, not my future. Why should I sacrifice more for something that was never my choice? I believe everybody who communicates contributes to the degree they can. They should not be condemned for it or told what to do.

      DM

      • I do not want to be associated with Scientology on either side of the fence. It is not good for business and it is in my past, not my future.

        DM, it appears by your comment that you’re not one of those I intended to reach. If you’ve left the game completely, I wouldn’t think of asking anything of you, and neither should anyone else.

    • Hi Ronnie. I’m just St. Sorry. But I get what you are saying exactly. This is a very extensive gradient scale. Many, many people are somewhere on that scale. Those just for the first time looking, are on the scale. We don’t expect them to even start making comments yet. For sure. We see them as visitors and we love them for it. Later, the gradient moves on. Maybe they comment at some point. Maybe they move along another 100 steps and maybe this takes. 2 years. Maybe even much later they come out as you have.

      I am glad you have Ronnie. I admire you. You are a player and a soldier.

      Some of us have a way to go still.

      Here’s to 2014.

    • Ronnie.

      I hear what you are saying. However …

      I’m not quite sure what’s worse … DM, or those in Indieland bitching about CO$ who won’t bend any fingers putting Scientology on the map out here. Just to be clear, I neither support, nor stand with them, as what they represent is a nothingness. Fool’s gold. The same types that cry a river over the poor sods getting whacked in DM’s church, but trash LRH & Scn at every given opportunity.

    • Ronnie,

      Got what you’re saying.

      However for some people it may be better for them to be undercover or off the radar.

      Also these people provide us with valuable intel on what’s happening in the Killer Kult these days.

      Remember too that many of our Founding Fathers wrote under pseudonyms prior and during the War of Independence.

      In my opinion if we can’t be little more tolerant of how others are handling the disintegration of the Church then we are no better than them.

      • …many of our Founding Fathers wrote under pseudonyms prior and during the War of Independence.

        Excuse me, but those men signed their names to the Declaration of Independence before the war, and that document was delivered to King George III. A man who they knew could be the author of their deaths. They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor for the cause of American independence, and many of them sacrificed all of those things to see it through.

        It’s also a fact, that during the American Revolution, only 3% of the colonists ever picked up a gun and fired on the British. I understand that not everyone has the courage to sign their name and show their face in this fight. Even fewer have the courage to take the fight directly to the belly of the beast.

        There is still honor to be had by supporting the leaders of this fight, even if a person feels they can’t figuratively ‘pick up a gun’, or show their face. Roughly a third of the American colonists did just that in America’s battle with the British Crown. On the day of Britain’s surrender, those people held their heads just as high as Washington and his brigades.

      • Yes they signed the DOI after Concord and Bunker Hill but the fact is that Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay all used pseudonyms in the Federalist Papers.

        Also unlike the American Revolution this is not a shooting war.

        This is covert unhanded insidious warfare directed against Scientology by some faction or conspiracy if you will which goes beyond Miscavige in my opinion.

        Also as far as I’m concerned there are no “leaders”.

        “Leaders” suggests “followers”.

        That said.

        What leaders are there?

        Marty?

        Have you seen his blog.

        The guy is now doing “exit counseling”.

        Mike?

        Mike’s a nice guy but I don’t think he wants the job. Nor do I think Steve does either.

        Thus this leaves us with the few who have elected themselves as leaders by founder some splinter group.

        Like for instance Captain Bill Robertson.

        Don’t get me wrong I think RO’s are doing a splendid job at the lower levels but I have some disagreement with their Tech above III.

        Thus again in my opinion we are back to thinking for ourselves and acting totally independently. In other words self determinedly or maybe pan determinedly.

        That’s my view.

  9. It is so funny that Scientology is heavily based on confront and communication that people still in cannot be in communication and confront people who have views that they “may not” like. I say may not because these people for the most part don’t even know the views of the “SP’s”. They just run for the hills. Wouldn’t it be much saner for the people still in to LISTEN to the views and then utter their own counter views? What would be so bad about that? The only reason I can think of why they don’t listen is that they are afraid of something.

    • I remember waiting in the HGC area of ASHO many years back, and thinking to myself how ironic it was that there was less real communication happening in that building than anywhere else I knew of.

      It was a realization that was so huge, I never quite got over it. It’s one of the things that eventually led me to find the exit.

      • Ronnie. So true. I went into an org a couple of weeks ago. My footsteps echoed through the div 6 spaces. No people. No comm. I was worried that I was the only dude to venture into the space for a while and me commenting here let’s them know who I was, because I was their only public! Scary stuff. But what org was it? Huh. It was the one that represents all the others.

    • I agree Tony.

      But this is a common failing of not just the Church but any group or organization that becomes too fanatical.

      Also you have the factor that there are people so uncertain of their own reality that they are unwilling to read or listen to anything that might shake it.

      This has been the Mission creep of the Church these days it seems.

      I remember at one time no body cared what you read or who you talked too.

      I myself read The Scandal of Scientology way back and it really didn’t affect my view of Scientology.

      Neither did BFM or anything else I’ve read that would be considered “entheta”.

      It seems now that most Churchies are considered too delicate and must be constantly monitored and kept surveillance lest they read something that might “enturbulate” them.

      So they use heavy ethics on anyone who strays off the rez.

      This is probably due to the fact that most people in the Church these days aren’t making any gains due to squirrel tech and they feel compelled to use suppressive ethics actions to keep them in line.

      Just my view.

  10. As to Gaye Corbett being insane – what a load of crock.
    The thing to do is to look at the product list of Gaye and Ernest and see what results they actually achieved. I consider them people of very high regard and friends.
    On the other hand when someone discovers a snake in the house… the first thing to do is alert everyone. Well there is a snake and his name is David Miscavige.
    If one looks at the awareness levels you will see that criminality is way down there just before unexistence. That is a far cry from Operating Thetan. For him it is perhaps more correctly defined as Misoperating Satan – it is simple – he demonstrates, in so many ways that he cannot do anything properly, can’t follow things that work, has to alter-is, has to do so many things or not do so many things. Perhaps he could once have done an RPF, but he has ruined it – so it wouldn’t work because most things he touches become squirreled. Pride comes from accomplishment of worthwhile actions. With binoculars telescopes and microscopes and just plain looking the only products to be seen from DM are overt products, death and destruction to lives and the dynamics of people. He is a like a cancer which eats away the fabric and base unit of society… the family. His stock in trade is lies and untruth. A snake. Perhaps he truly is a MEST being. I ran into one of those a couple of times… things just go wrong around them, one after the other. Whatever, the evidence over more than 30 years shows that he is NOT FOR LIFE.
    That does not leave much that he can be for, does it.

    His action is to block the bridge.

    His action is to divert people from the true bridge.

    His action is against the state of OT

    His action is against the individual taking more and more responsibility and reaching higher levels of causativeness.

    His action is block ALL dissemination of the truths that LRH did bring, and the actions bring home the truth of his purposes – he seeks to end all Scientology, because by altering and squirreling he is creating a myriad of messages, which are not able to be duplicated.

    His action is help, help that helps to destroy. AND SO ONE CAN HIM FOR WHAT HE IS.

    He is a Suppressive Person.

    • His action is block ALL dissemination of the truths that LRH did bring, and the actions bring home the truth of his purposes – he seeks to end all Scientology…

      I believe that to be true with every fiber of my being. I’ve actually come to the conclusion that he’s been on a covert mission to destroy Scientology for the last thirty years. I’m sure his masters are very happy with his progress.

    • Just an added bit. Somewhere on the web is a transcript of a court case where this idiot had to testify. He was pinned down to admit, finally, that he had in fact not done the OEC course. He admitted it after a protracted Q &A. Someone with good search skills can locate it for us.

      MA BU? He seems to know how to do this?

      • I read a story written by a SO member who’d left his post and the church. He said that SO members mainly don’t know what Scientology is because everything is so hectic, so crazy, with the attitude that “it’s got to be done NOW!” He said there wasn’t time for study or or auditing. It was unheard of. He left Scientoloy without knowing what it was. By then, he had a bad taste in his mouth and said he wasn’t going to bother to find out, just wanted to live in peace.

        This was one of my first shocks, the realisation that Int Management and the like were NOT trained, were NOT OEC/FEBC, were NOT OTVIII or above or anywhere even below, not even Clear! They hadn’t all done the FPRD Exec list. This was my first taste of the lie it all was.

      • Terrible. Heard a similar story of a FLAG SO member who left thinking Scientology was huge all over the world but when she left the base she was in shock with all the empty orgs she visited. I personally feel sorry for these guys. They think they are on their basic purpose, helping others. But they are just betrayed over and over again and become blind!!!

      • My brother joined the Sea Org at seventeen. When he left the Sea Org ten years later, he hadn’t moved a single inch on either side of the Bridge.

        As if that weren’t bad enough, he was also in a socially crippled state. Like a lot of ex-S.O. members, he didn’t know the first thing about how to function in real life. Fortunately, I was in a position to get him a job and help him wing it until he could fly on his own.

  11. Happy New Year, South Africa! Doubtless 2014 is going to be interesting, and I wish for you that it’s a really good year.

    You deserve all the fun you can create, and I bet that’s a lot! 😀

  12. “All men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others.” (Unless you are in a cult)

    You could always tell those still stuck in the cocoon of ignorance to apply their own Creed.

  13. Scnafrica and every single person who has visited or written or commented, have a simply brilliant 2014.

    The article is another fine piece. Go quietly. Yeah right. Every morning, you open this blog and there you and we are. Talking and being nice and noisy. Perfect.

    Thanks for all you do Scnafrica.

  14. Hi Guys,
    Well I hope each and everyone of you will continue in 2014 looking @ .studying the early works of LRH where there is so much truth. There are plenty places to study or to get up the bridge and any of the South African OT VIII ‘s who where declared because of their disagreements with Miscaveges church would be more than willing to guide you. May you all have an adventurous and funfulled 2014.

  15. Happy New Year!

    To all of you out there in SA.

    Excellent post Tony.

    Personally I do not know why the Ol’man changed course in the mid 60’s and instituted the “Fair Game Law” but obviously it wasn’t workable because on another New Year back in 68 and 69 he issued the Reform Codes which Abolished Sec Checks canceled Disconnection and Fair Game.

    As anyone who was there will remember the late ’60’s and ’70’s were the biggest decades of expansion for Scientology.

    Of course sec checking crept back in under the label of “Integrity Processing” and was later re-instituted as “Confessionals” then after the coup took over so did disconnection and obviously as an earlier commenter pointed out so did Fair Game it seems officially according to OSA.

    Well we know what direction this is going to go in because many of us seen it before.

    Anyhoo…

    Happy New Year to everybody.

  16. “If they can all just go away quietly… ” there might not be anyone left.

    I think it’s a paradox that most of the people who are still trying to advance the original aims of scientology no longer call themselves scientologists. Meanwhile, there’s a business calling itself the Church of Scientology that has almost exactly opposite aims: suppress communication, accumulate MEST etc etc. L. Ron Hubbard had surely ceased to be a scientologist by the time he wrote KSW.

    But, wishing a great new year to South Africa!
