There was much excitement at the purchase of the Castle in 2008. The hype at the March 13 Event of that year was huge. 6 years later it’s a massive white elephant, falling to ruin. There was a massive recruitment drive for the AO headed by Robert Bokelmann. What happened to all those people? Anyone who was recruited for the AO back in 2008 (assuming they are still in the Sea Org) is still 3-4 years or more away from ever taking a post in the org for which they were recruited. Never mind the number of these recruits who have left.
The whole business with the Castle and the alleged AO should be acting as one of the greatest wake up calls. The evidence of the failure of ideal orgs and the GATs (I & II) is right there in that massive, empty building. Just like the dreams of so many.
