In an effort to keep Joburg Org’s public abreast of its activities, an email promo called JOBURG BUZZ NEWSLETTER was concocted some years ago. Although intended to be a weekly issue, as the org diminished in resources and activity, so did the frequency of the newsletter which has dwindled to a sporadic now-and-again occurrence.
As is peculiar to the the world of corporate scientology, they live in a bubble of NOW – the ability to see their own dwindling spiral over time seems to be somewhat absent. This is probably attributed to a number of factors including the insanity of operating on a policy of ONLY THIS WEEK MATTERS, ALWAYS promote unprecedented expansion despite irrefutable evidence to the contrary and NEVER admit there may be trouble in paradise.
PR Series 10-1: PRO Area Control:
“The extent of one’s PRO area control can be measured at once by counting up the points one is not controlling from the company or org viewpoint and the points one IS controlling.”
Joburg Org – the continental headquarters of Scientology in Africa, has been situated in it’s ideal premises in the suburb of Kensington since November 2003.
For a brief period before and after Joburg reached St Hill size in 2005, the org was involved in many community activities – Drug Free marches and other 3D campaigns were active – VM’s, WTH, Gung-Ho groups etc. The field & org staff had a great sense of camaraderie and enthusiasm in undertaking these projects. At that time, the church was recognised and appreciated for the role it took in community development and betterment.
But it was not to last.
