In an interview with the Saint Petersburg Times published October 25, 1998, David Miscavige reveals his success to power: “People keep saying, ‘How’d you get power?’ ” Miscavige said. “Nobody gives you power. I’ll tell you what power is. Power in my estimation is if people will listen to you. That’s it.”
The link for this interview is posted at the bottom for reference.
He implies in this statement, that people are eager and willing to be led by him, possibly even hopeful, and therefore he gifts them winning commands.
A closer inspection of the facts over the past 30 plus years tells a different story.
How did David Miscavige get power? The oldest and sneakiest trick in the book. “Divide and Conquer”.
When I think of the evidence I could lay on the table, this could easily evolve into a book. I do encourage anyone so inclined to write it. When I thought of all I could lay down on the table to illustrate my point, I thought I might need to write a ten part series.
Being I am currently very short on time, and the people I mean to have a look at this are very bright with lots of Scientology street cred, I will make it as a brief as possible and I know others will fill in the missing things that needed to be said or looked at, for all of us.
Divide and conquer has been David’s only “magic management” trick.
He began with the Hubbard’s, Ron and Mary Sue. Not like Hubbard was down in the trenches himself on that one and huddled up with attorneys himself. Someone else can easily put this puzzle together. He divided that unit.
Next he took on the Mission Holders, which were a unit and a very well organized group with a lot of camaraderie. Again, how he split that group up and even deleted missions across America is no secret. He tore that power down. Then he slapped S.M.I. on top of them to dominate.
Next, he focused on the Sea Org. Not like Hubbard was down in those trenches with the attorneys on “restructuring” either. David divided the Sea Org into small manageable units he could easily dominate, and maintained distances between them so one did not know what the other was thinking. This is how he divided up the Sea Org into little sections:
RTC, ASI, Central Computer bank , In Comm, CMO IXU, CMO INT, Int Finance Office, Int Landlord, Office of E.D. Int, Watchdog Committee, C.S.I., Golden Era Productions, A.S.I., Office of Special Affairs, S.M.I., Bridge Pubs, New Era Publications, A.B.L.E., Flag Bureau, C.M.O., F.O.L.O., CC Int, Continental Pubs Liason Office, W.I.S.E., F.S.O., F.S.S.O., C.M.O. Cont, I.A.S., Freewdins, Blah blah blah blah it must take an airplane hangar to keep the corp docs.
Note, he put people “in power” over all of this significance and then lopped their heads off. It is ONLY HIM UP THERE NOW in charge of of all of this, which is basically, a couple of hundred people let’s face it.
He picked off power people one by one and the Heber Jentzsch family was a huge victory. He alone did not have the power Karen De La Carriere and Heber had in Scientology.
As a note, after Karen left and was posting on Marty’s blog, she confided in a person that appeared “trustworthy” and within days her son was sent to snoop on her and bust her. Miscavige was running divide on conquer. Karen is still standing. And that woman lives out loud and stands tall and is accepted everywhere and is loved and accepted because she grants beingness to everyone. She is one of the most remarkable human beings I have ever seen. And she is STILL being there and confronting that con man.
How to constantly divide and conquer the public? Easy! G.A.T.! Those that went with his programs went right, those that did not went left. Every few years now he does a shake down like this and splits the community. Status’! Those that gave much were applauded, those that did not were shamed. He even figured out ways to segregate the customers!
How to control those that fled and went Independent? Too easy!
He parked OSA plants on ESMB to Fair Game any opinion leader leaving the Church who could enable the discontented. Last count over 230 thread fair gaming Marty Rathbun. Someone was there to stir up witch hunts the instant an opinion leader left the Church. This divided the discontented on that score. Put OSA plants out here to start civil wars between the Freezoners and Independents to keep those from forming any union. Then he refocused his plan to turn Indies against Indies. He then tried to start wars between the Indies such as, “Who is using their real name and who is not?” “Who signed the Indie 500 list and who did not?” And divided camps and got people to out themselves gathering intel through the “status game”.
This goes so far down he manages to do it with witnesses! Divide and conqueror the witnesses. When the trials were going down and Brian Caulkin was in the mix with Louis Garcia, David propped up his OSA plant the throw the solo nots materials on Brian. Waited a moment until the guy was spun in and then moved in to make a deal. He managed to divide and conquer witness! The fair gaming that went on between camps over that one created rifts and no mercy was spared on Brian. (Personally, I think Brian is a well meaning man and that was hard for me to watch).
Over and over this “genius” of David Miscavige, parallel to the magic of a hostile mother in law to split up a marriage, has worked and we have been played.
It is this simple:
A. Divide and conquer.
B. Fund it with beggars.
Why does he fund it all with beggars? Well first of all in this way he invalidates the admin tech. If the Church could really run on admin tech would he need beggars?
Secondly, he does not want to sell and deliver Scientology why? Because then he would make Scientologists! Who / What would oppose David Miscavige? ONLY a Scientologist. The less there are, the less he has to worry about. It is easier to beg and shame people into giving.
Do you think if he was a U.S. Senator or a Mayor he would not be in prison right now? Why does he still run loose? Who / What would oppose him? He has created such bad P.R. people out here in the world think Scientologists are so crazy they “deserve” what happens to them like a prostitute that gets raped! This is how divides us as PEOPLE from our fellow man. This is how insidious it gets.
Whoever you are wherever you are reading this from whatever country, you can probably look around you and see how you have been picked off from people you loved for years and they are standing on the other side of some fence. There must be hundreds of other stories.
So what is the upshot?
We ALL got played. Please for the love of God do not use anything I written here to run out and harm attack or suppress another human being. Stop getting played.
If you have been the target of an O.S.A. plant, let it go. These people are homeless for all purposes. They can not go back and they can not settle out here. Have mercy, grant amnesty, and hope that one of them can or will come forward and offer to help again and belong somewhere again. We ALL got played.
Reach out and stand by someone, anyone, and do not let walls come between you. I don’t care if you are for or against Scientology, for or against L. Ron Hubbard, for or against the Sea Org, put humanity first.
Let’s just stop getting played by the con man who truly, has not been anyone’s friend.
