David Miscavige’s McBridge
Well, the first completion from Flag’s Grades program has rolled off the line, and is being touted all over LA as the poster child for David Miscavige’s new, faster-than-ever Grades. As you may have heard, all OT Ambassadors have been given “mandatory” orders to select people to Flag for their Grades. They have stiff quotas, and are being pounded to get more people to Flag.
Never mind that this takes preclears from their local orgs, who are already struggling to get by, with their course rooms and HGCs empty. Never mind that it is the Orgs who are supposed to deliver Grades, and then select them to the AOs and then to Flag. Never mind such a minor thing as Bridge flow. No, don’t think about those things – they have to be gotten to Flag fast so they can be signed up fast, so they can get through their Grades fast.
And exactly how are they getting them through their Grades so fast? Well, because they are delivering Quad Grades, not Expanded Grades. Yes, that’s right, Quad Grades.
And that’s not the only thing being stripped down for speed. A former C/S who recently trained at Flag said that they were informed by the Qual Division at Flag that two out of three LRH HCOBs on the State of Clear were no longer to be applied. They were “no longer in use.”
I seem to remember a reference called Technical Degrades – HCO PL 17 June 1970: “The effort to get students through courses and get pcs processed was considered best handled by reducing materials or deleting processes from grades. The pressure to speed up student completions and auditing completions was mistakenly answered by just not delivering.”
But we don’t have time to read all that. We’ve got to hurry, hurry, hurry and get more people to Flag for their fast, fast Grades!
Would you like fries with that?
Addendum: Now get this: before pcs are allowed to get their Grades at Flag they have to sign a nondisclosure agreement that they will not tell what they were audited on. Of course – they don’t want it to get around that Flag is delivering Quickie Grades!
