Ramping Up the Threat Level
As reported in an earlier post, Flag is now using bald threats to try to force people to come to Flag. Certain OTs received a “summons” from the Director of Inspections and Reports FSO ordering them to report for services, with a threat of a Comm Ev if they dared to non-comply.
Well, it appears the level of threat and duress is increasing, as Flag becomes more and more desperate for income to support Miscavige’s expensive real estate addiction.
As reported on Marty Rathbun’s blog,
“The more truth that is getting out to the world about what is really going on with Miscavology, it seems the more desperate the crush push for money out of existing public is becoming. There are missions out in a number of cities that are using coercion and threat to force people to empty retirement savings accounts, get 2nd mortgages on homes and resort to a plethora of unusual and dishonest solutions to pay more money to the Church.”
Those who don’t cough up money are subject to “ethics investigations” including metered Sec Checks to find out their “crimes.”
Meanwhile, at the FSC Office in Los Angeles, they are desperate to meet their stiff quotas of number of people to Flag. They have been working to mobilize OTs in the LA area to get busy as FSMs and get one person a month sent off to Flag. Jeff Feher, the FSM I/C at the LA FSC Office, reports in his most recent e-mail that they haven’t been having much success. He says, “In running this [program] for the past week or so, I have come across a number of you who have bumped into an unwillingness of the prospect to come into the FSC Office which you weren’t able to handle.”
Damn right there was an unwillingness. But of course it had nothing to do with the heavy-handed threat-level tactics Flag is currently employing.
And his “solution”? There is now a missionaire from Flag who will go to your prospect’s home or business “with or without you there.” Oh great. So the solution to people’s unwillingness to come in is to send out a high-pressure Reg/Ethics Officer to give them even more pressure and threats – right where they live or work! Oh, great – that’ll work.
Meanwhile the Public Officer FSO, also on mission, apparently, to LA, also urges LA area OTs to get their prospects in to the FSC Office. And he warns that “Reports will be turned in on those not responding.”
We can expect to see more and more of this kind of desperate behavior in the future, more demands for money, more unusual solutions, and more ethics handlings, Sec Checks and conditions for anyone who does not comply with David Miscavige’s insatiable demand for money.
