Six More Out
That’s right, six. Four OT VIIIs and two OT VIIs.
The flash point for these and many other Scientologists has been the increasing “Thought Police” interviews, as described in my last post.
That, and the fact that they are finding out that many of their friends have also left the Church in disgust. They are finding that many of their fellow OTs and Scientologists share their opposition to the current off-Policy and criminal direction of David Miscavige’s Church of Scientology.
A tip to the “Ethics Officers” conducting these interviews: You know that question about “do you have any friends who are disillusioned/disenchanted/disaffected? Don’t even bother asking. The answer is yes, most of them.
Apparently, Miscavige’s new “strategy,” if one can call it that, is called the “Triangular Strategy,” which means “expanding Scientology” through (1) IAS donations, (2) Ideal Org donations and (3) Library donations. Or, in other words, (1) Squeeze money out of Scientologists, (2) Squeeze more money, and (3) Squeeze even more money. All of it is donations, forbidden by LRH. None of it involves the delivery of services.
And as the money dries up, as more and more people are leaving, withdrawing their support, Miscavige gets more and more desperate. Now the only thing they have left is force, duress and stress, and it’s driving more and more people away.
I hope that David Miscavige, as he’s addressing this year’s IAS Event, realizes, as he looks out over the audience, that many in attendance, and thousands more who are not, know exactly what he is up to. And they’re not putting up with it any more.
