The Bubble

June 27, 2010

There are several films that I think every Scientologist should see. One of them is The Truman Show, the 1998 film starring Jim Carrey.  If you haven’t seen it, rent it and I think you’ll get a kick out of it.

The plot centers around a reality television show, “The Truman Show,” whose main character, Truman Burbank, has lived his entire life since before birth in front of the cameras for the show, though he himself is unaware of this fact. Truman’s life is filmed through thousands of hidden cameras, 24 hours a day and broadcast live around the world. Truman’s hometown of Seahaven is a complete set built under a giant dome and populated by the show’s actors and crew, allowing full control of every aspect of Truman’s life. Everything he experiences is supplied by the show – his “family,” his “friends,” his “job,” the newspapers he reads, the TV shows he watches, and so on.

To keep Truman from discovering the false reality of his life, he is bombarded with false news reports and advertising about how dangerous and hostile the world is outside of Seahaven, and how good and safe it is to stay at home. Despite all these precautions, Truman begins to notice oddities, and his sense of “cognitive dissonance” grows, particularly after he falls in love with an extra (not part of the script) and she tries to tell him the truth about his life. The girl mysteriously disappears (disconnection?).

The parallels are interesting, and it relates to something I call “the bubble”- the self-contained Scientology world.

Just as in Truman’s Seahaven, the world outside Scientology’s safe bubble is depicted as dangerous and hostile. A friend just sent me some recent Sea Org recruitment promo. The headline reads “We live in a world gone mad” and goes on to say “An environment where Suppressives are bent on inhibiting the few working to create a better world.”  That’s the outside world that the Church loves to promote to its members – a scary world inhabited by Suppressives, haters, and bigots, where an all-powerful cabal of psychs and big pharma companies works through a vast army of masked Anonymous terrorists to thwart Scientology at every turn, and churn out volumes of “lies” about the Church. Just like Seahaven’s fake “news broadcasts,” these stories are designed to keep Scientologists from sticking their heads outside the bubble.

Inside the bubble, of course, everything is safe and wonderful. The Church is “expanding.” The Church’s leader, David Miscavige, is perfect in every way, and has never done anything wrong. The tech “always works” and uniformly produces rave successes. LRH was a saintly, benign, and godlike genius (even though he never claimed to be anything of the sort). Scientology’s faceless but benign “management” stalwartly carries forward Ron’s legacy. Everything is fine. It’s the perfectly scripted Truman Show.

Being able to control the flow of information – both into the bubble and within the bubble – is vital. Everyone has to stay on-script.

Controlling the flow of information into the bubble is simple. You simply brand all outside information as entheta, lies, Black PR, natter, and so forth.  If any residents of the bubble come into contact with outside information (what the rest of us might call “reality”), they are simply told it’s “all lies.” That handles it. They are told it’s “entheta.” They are told NOT to read it or watch it. They are threatened with a visit to Ethics if they do.

Controlling the flow of information within the bubble is simple, too. Scientologists know what they can and can’t say, and they stay on-script. They know they cannot openly challenge or criticize Management or David Miscavige, so they don’t. They know they can’t question any of the Church’s actions, so they don’t. They know they can’t criticize any part of Scientology, so they don’t.  They dutifully report when they are told to report, pay when they are told to pay, and rise for a “standing ovation” at the correct scripted points at an event, just as the house lights come on and the cameras sweep over their smiling faces. Just like the residents of Truman’s Seahaven, they know that they must never deviate from the script.

Trying to communicate the reality of what’s going on behind the scenes in the Church to one of these bubble residents can be a frustrating task.  They just don’t see it. It’s not part of the approved script. You can present them with evidence of David Miscavige’s abuse and malfeasance, and they just look at you blankly and say something insipid like “that’s not my reality,” or “that’s just entheta.” You can present evidence that the Church is declining, and it will go right over their heads. Because that wasn’t what they were told at an event, or in Impact Magazine, therefore it can’t be true.  You can provide them with link after link, and they’ll just tell you that they never visit “entheta sites” or “natter boards.” And if pressed, you’ll find out they consider anything other than approved Church websites to be “entheta sites.”

The bubble is one of the hardest things to crack. With some people it’s impossible.

But the bubble has a weak point. It can be cracked from within. And, as with Truman himself, it is the individual inside the bubble who eventually cracks it. It begins when they discover that the perfect, storybook world they are immersed in is not what it seems to be. The flaws and lies become more and more visible. One begins to see the manipulative hand of the hidden director.

And one day, like Truman, they reach the edge of the bubble and walk through it to freedom.

    Very nicely said, Jeff.

    One of my favorite quotes from Gandhi:

    “The outward freedom that we shall attain will only be in exact proportion to the inward freedom to which we may have grown at a given moment. And if this is a correct view of freedom, our chief energy must be concentrated on achieving reform from within.”

    Concerning the CoS reforming, I’ve heard the line (from those inside) that “reform will only come from within” – I’m certain they know not the full extent of the truth they speak.

    And, as I see it, only to the degree the individuals involved themselves reform will the group reform. Moving a “bubble-minded” person to a different set won’t change their script.

    Another great post Jeff! This so educational for non-Scn’ist.

    Once you’re in the bubble for any length of time you start to censor yourself and others. In the Sea Org, you become so arrogant you can’t believe you have let yourself be duped, ‘it must be something about me’ you think to yourself, not Scn. So you don’t investigate these doubts to a great degree. You don’t want to hear, let alone believe, anything bad about what you have literally signed your current life and what you believe your future lives, away.

    Another great movie I highly recommend with regards to the Sea Org and Int experiences is “The Island” released in 2005.

    This is so true! As a devoted bubble-head I would never believe the truth, only the script was real. When my friend asked me if scn was making me brainwashed I said, “no, it’s just the OPPOSITE, I can finally think for MYSELF.” ROFLMAO now, but then, that was serious sh*t.

    There’s one other small chink in DM’s bubble paradigm: in a Cine ED written in early 1978 by LRH himself he said “An actor has a right to vary his lines.” DM knows this and now so too des every visitor to this site!

    Every now and again a bubble bursts.

    Yahoo News exposes C of S tax fraud

    http://au.todaytonight.yahoo.com/article/7442179/general/scientology-tax

    I wanted to get an idea of how many people would read about Yahoo Australia exposing the TAX FRAUD.
    So I visited Alexa.com to get the traffic count.
    Here’s where I visited ~~

    http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo

    when I cut and paste the above news release on the TAX fraud, due to the way Yahoo crosslinks its site, it came up very very high.

    You should try it.

    Avoid taxes, milk the parishioners, send SO medical cases for the Government to pay, seperate families, and make more enemies who speak out by the day.

    Nice Jeff… The Truman Show really is a perfect allegory movie for all who have ever experienced a closed, bubble-minded way of thinking and living. Happens all the time in personal relationships and with governmental systems, too.

    But, having gone through such an anti-freedom experience, once one does start to wake up and burst their bubble, ahhh…. the sweet taste of freedom will hopefully never be let go of again as long as the remembrance of what brought them there remains.

    You could easily have named your book “Counterfeit Bubble”!

    Jeff, this is a perfect analogy. And trying to get a dedicated kool-aid drinker to see the reality is indeed a frustrating experience, and very much how it would be trying to convince Truman of his actual situation before he had seen the ‘cracks’ for himself.

    Interesting that from a viewpoint within the bubble, the bubble itself is invisible. Only the cracks are visible, and only then if one can avoid the human pitfall of justifying what one sees that does not fit with one’s preconceived reality, in order to make it fit, to preserve the illusion of perfect order.

    So what makes a crack visible to one inside the bubble? What is it that allows one’s observation of an outpoint to bypass that human urge to explain it away, to make it fit?

      Hi Luna!

      To keep with the very apt bubble analogy: any bubble must remain whole to exist at all. If you’ve ever seen a time-lapse movie of a bubble collapsing, it is nearly instantaneous, once a small part of it is sufficiently weakened. When popped, it is completely gone, with a sticky residue the only evidence it ever existed.

      IMO, the “cracks” in the bubble are actually stress fractures, created by forces pulling in opposite directions. Think Cognitive Dissonance. Too many of these outpoint stress fractures, or one or two really huge ones, and the bubble disappears. Doesn’t mean the person is now instantly changed. It just means he is now open to and able to benefit from other information sources, including his own suppressed observations made over the years. The self imposed filters are gone.

      So why can’t you get people to see the bubble for themselves? I think it is because each person creates their own bubble and thus they are the only ones that can undo it. The huge crack in your bubble may not even be a wrinkle in the next guy’s bubble. Welcome to the frothy fun that is the C of M!

      So probably, the way to get through is to ask questions that get the person to look at the likely cracks in his or her bubble. It is hard to resist charging in and describing all the cracks in one’s own personal bubble to another. That is when you get comments like, “that’s not my reality”.

        John Doe

        You’re absolutely right! From what I’ve seen, asking questions of the person inside the bubble has the best chance of success. I was about to say it’s “the only way,” and then a thought struck me.

        Aesthetics.

        A thetan will willingly receive communication carried on an aesthetic wavelength that he would not ordinarily allow through his own bubble. Music, plays, movies, literature, even comedy have all been used over the ages to communicate ideas/realities that might normally meet with resistance from the target audience. Society is constantly being changed by art.

        How could one use aesthetics to change the minds of those still enclosed in their bubbles?

        Luna,

        Humor, used lightly, can get through. But since people in the bubble are often so afraid of being called a Joker and Degrader, they are not even that receptive to that so much.

        (Personally, it felt pretty good to let myself go crazy on the Devil’s Dictionary thread a few weeks ago. I guess I had a lot on suppress regarding being able to joke about things in the church.)

    The above is suppose to be a insert from a book or tape call “On Control and Lying” from Technique 88. I can’t find it anywhere, but it is pretty interesting. Does anyone know if this is really LRH? If it is a tape, was it removed from the new Technique 88 CD’s?

    This explains how to keep someone in the bubble.

    Some ways to get out “the Bubble” (every person is individual, though):
    1. “”It’s Ok to have doubts”
    2. “Life is good with or without Scientology”
    3. “There ARE ALSO other ways to achieve the same”
    4. “You re NOT alone in (this “dying”) world”.
    5. “”You ARE good” (with or without Scientology).

    Those might look like “buttons”. They aren’t.
    There ARE some approaches to deal with dedicated scnietologist.

    To them it’s WE who are in the bubble.
    Loved ones have to be dealt with mildly and finely.

    There has to be 1 point of agreement established. (and – forgive me for using Hubbard here. It has to be used).

      I think there’s another way to get out of the bubble, and it doesn’t require anyone’s agreement.

      OBSERVE AND THINK FOR YOURSELF.

      I know that “Think for yourself” was a Church of Scientology advertising mantra in Germany.

      Of course, that was a lie, so I can discard the mantra as well as the source.

      Ron spoke about the liabilities of an “avid craving for agreement from a humanoid group”. (KSW 1) He also spoke about thetans without bank having different responses. Hmmmm.

  14. June 29, 2010 7:41 am

    It’s a PR world indeed.

    Every commercial, every radio ad, every book review, movie trailer, every, every every……
    They are all designed to get you to think a certain thing about a certain product, person or cause.

    On this planet and probably since the dawn of this universe, we thetans have been taught to be led by others. Influenced by this brand, that politician, the people with “status”, money and power, as well as whoever has the biggest weapons.

    DM’s multimillion dollar PR machine, his widely-pervasive, heavy-handed ethics threats, positioning himself with Tom Cruise, and on and on, just acts as one big implant.

    The bubble in Scientology is the same bubble that has been used on mankind, particularly with regard to religion and currency, for eons.

    The current “recession” we are all PTS to is utterly manufactured by the greedy and short-sighted. The housing bubble is an obvious example of brainwashing and duping.

    It’s a tough universe. We need to be sharp. We need to put in justice. We need to keep going. And if we do, our friends still in the bubble will continue to wake up. Even if it’s one person at a time for right now.

    Ultimately, however, the bubble will burst and the mass exodus will occur. It’s practically natural law.

    Jeff,
    This is an excellent companion piece to the the earlier blog on Cognitive Dissonance.
    It supports it and expands on it
    The Truman Show analogy really is perfect.
    I still can’t get off the mailing lists and recently received a promo piece to join the SO with a huge headline
    WE LIVE IN A WORLD GONE MAD.

    They really believe this. I guess you can mock up whatever you want and then believe in your own delusions. It is all viewpoint.

    Sorry to spoil the party, but I believe just like the Truman show, once you break out of one bubble, you just enter a bigger bubble.

    The bigger bubble just has more freedoms than the one you were just in so it seems you are now free. It is all subjective. You are still in a bubble with different rules, that is all.

      We could get all philosophical here and say that all reality is just an illusion, a “bubble.” But that’s a bit beyond the scope of this blog. The point is that people can get trapped in false “realities” and manipulated. Scientology is a key example of that. Sure, there are many others, and there are always attempts to manipulate people’s reality. I think knowing the mechanisms involved helps to guard against that – for instance, when someone tries to sell you on the “evilness” of some group or opponent or race, or the “perfection” of some cause or ideology, that to me sends warning flags up.

      • It's me again permalink
        June 29, 2010 5:50 pm

        Jeff,

        Exactly! This is why you have a hard time getting people to look at these sites. People inside Scientology think and have been told that because others are trying to sell them on the “evilness” of Scientology it is a warning flag. This is what they are taught or what they believe.

        Lunamoth had a good philosophical point. How could one use anesthetics to change the minds of those in their bubbles? That is a fresh new idea that can be looked at. Being philosophical may open up new ideas on how to handle the situation with the COS.

        Harping on the same old stuff may be working at a slow pace, but there are a lot of very smart people posting on this and other sites that sometimes get’s into a group agreement. (not all) I for one am sick of group agreements. I say get philosophical if needed to get some fresh new ideas going.

        You are not just fighting a mad man. DM is an “Enslaver” and some of the people with him are also. He has a purpose, “Destroying Beings”, and he has a plan on how to do that and it is set and in place. He has been an Enslaver for a very long time, not just this life time, and it is no accident he took over the church. He knows exactly what he is doing and how to do it. That is why it is so hard for people inside to see (call it a bubble for a story sake, but it is more insidious than that). There is a hat to it and he wears it pretty damn well.

        Maybe there are plans already in place to take him out. If so, great. Until I know for sure, I am looking for fresh new ideas to win this fight.

      @ Jeff, another excellent essay! Thank you.

      @ lunamoth…aesthetics….yeah, that’s the way. It is a disintegrator wave and it does disintengrate. 🙂

      @ It’s me again, I totally agree with you in regards to what you said about DM. IMO, DM is being grossly underestimated but one really has to leave the scn bubble way behind, venture further into the rabbit hole than ever before and take the focus off DM in order to see what’s going on. You know, it’s something like that old saying about one not being able to see the forest for the trees.

      @ Idle Org, ah yes, “The Matrix”, now that’s a bigger bubble for sure. But, since you brought it up…this one’s for you Idle Org. You see, we’ve got a plan, we’re going to use poetry….wake up Neo.

    Jeff, you blog post, Certainty, Knowingness and Belief and all the most excellent comments to that post, definitely put some gears into motion within my universe. Gears, btw, that continue to whir. Then, with this blog and the bubble allegory, some gears (at least for now) really clicked into place. Consequently, I wrote the following essay that I want to share with both you and all who read and contribute to your blog posts. Oh yeah, I borrowed your bubble and made it my own. 🙂

    ESSAY ON RELIGION’S IMPACT ON THE EVOLUTION OF HUMANITY

    Imagine, if you will, two points that exist in the same space but are positioned opposite from one another. Assign one point the label, Believe and the other the label of Disbelieve. Now, under the point labeled Believe please assemble these words; embraced, accepted, included, agreed with, known, rightness and complete certainty of or certainty about. Then under the point labeled Disbelieve please assemble these words; rejected, excluded, disagreed with, shunned, known, rightness and complete certainty of or certainty about. Okay. Now, enclose each point and its grouping of related concepts within its own circle. Or, more appropriately, it’s own “bubble.”

    By the way, the bubbles apply to any entity whether singular or plural. In other words, to any individual or any group of any size. I have my own bubbles and every group or sub-group I belong to or, in some way, connected to has their two bubbles of Believe and Disbelieve that are unique to them.

    In the vacant space existing between the two bubbles, please insert these words; uncertainty, wonder, curiosity, exploration, inspection, observation, discovery, change, experience, fear, confusion, puzzlement, bewilderment, unknown.

    By now I’m sure you’ve noticed but I’ll mention it anyway, both the bubble of Believe and Disbelieve, contain conclusions/certainties/rightness while the space outside the bubbles contains anything but. Learning, expansion, evolution, do not occur within the bubbles. In order to learn, expand and evolve; an entity must be able to step outside their bubbles into the space outside. The content in either one or both of the bubbles will be coninually revised and modified depending on what is experienced, discovered and learned while the entity is in the space outside. Thus, the entity and humanity overall evolves.

    There is an empirical cycle of life. It is a cycle plotting a sequential progression of motion. The phases, in sequence, of this cycle, are: conception, birth, growth, attainment, conservation, decay and finally death.

    When an entity becomes so ridgid in either their bubble of Belief or Disbelief, that they are no longer willing or able to even consider the space outside much less step out into it, the entity, at whatever position they are on the cycle, will instantly move into the decay phase and begin moving toward death.

    I happen to currently reside in a locale where the lion’s share of the population, that also reside here, have become so fearful of the space outside that they have withdrawn deeply into their bubbles. Consequently, they are exclusively certain about all that they know. Remember, both the Believe bubble and the Disbelieve bubble contain complete certainty. And, it appears that they know everything about everything and in any circumstance that presents itself, they always “know best” as to how to deal with it. The contradiction, though, is, the locale that I speak of is in a condition of decay where abundant potential goes unrecognized and thereby unrealized. The city, the people, because they see no need to ever step out of their bubbles iand nto the space outside, are not evolving. Instead, they’re actually devolving.

    It is interesting to note that in this city where I live, there is a plethora of churches. Certainly, there is more than enough religion in the area for everyone here and then some. It is also interesting to note that each church has its own set of bubbles peculiar to it. And these particular bubbles, it appears, have become or, perhaps were from their inception, extremely ridgid in their composition. Furthermore, as I interact with my fellow citizens, of which most have their “home chruch”, I observe that the different church bubbles are, if you look beneath the social veneer, in vigorous opposition and competition with one another. You see, there can only be one “ONLY” and when you have a multitude of religious bubbles each claiming to be the “ONLY” one…well, that condition doesn’t serve to advance the consciousness of humanity. Instead it serves to fragmentize and sequester humanity into a multitude of ridgid and conflicting, even warring, bubbles.

    Whether or not it has been an intended plan to use religion to control the world population I cannot say, but intended or not, religion has no doubt been, and continues to be, a critical component in holding humanity in an almost static (no growth) state of right-brain consciousness. Indeed, religion seems to purposefully suppress right-brain consciousness. However, it appears that religion places no restriction on the prolification of those products brought into fruition by the left-brain consciousness. Products that are used by religion in order to advance the power and control of their “ONLY” over the “ONLY” asserted by any other.

    End of essay.

    FYI: here is a quick and simple test to determine if one is right brained or left brained.

    Monte,

    Very interesting video’s. I understand what you are saying, especially regarding the Matrix video. Have you noticed that anytime you bring something like this up, the words become “conspiracy theory”, which sets off an automatic rejection in the mind of most (like some kind of implant not to look). Yes, there is much deeper things going on, with Scientology and the world, but it is not real to most so I have to stay within the reality of people.

    There are many Enslavers on this planet (DM is one). The plan was put in motion many years ago and the beginning of the end is coming near. The Enslavers have us fighting among ourselves, one party against another, one country against another, yet they are the ones in control of all governments, they fund both sides. I was hoping that Scientology fell under the radar of these people, but I was only hoping. They will take down any group that can make real OT’s or make people able.

    There are still enough in the USA who will fight for freedom and who have not been educated in their propaganda , but the next couple of generations coming up will probably be the end of the USA. As bad as the rest of the world and even people in the USA think our system is, you don’t see too many people wanting to leave their country and want to go and live in another country, they mostly want to come here. That should tell you something. It is not our system of government that is bad, it is the people running it.

    Well, I ‘ll stop here. This stuff is just too much for some to confront. You have got to give the devil his due, it was a very well laid out plan. They are persistent SOB’s, I’ll give them that much and again, DM is one of them.

    When I was in Scientology, I used to get this all the time. The only reason people don’t believe the Church’s latest whackadoodle nut-job conspiracy theory (“the psychs are in league with the world bank and the whole track implanters to destroy man’s only chance for Total Freedom”) was that “it was too much for people to confront.” No, people don’t buy into these theories because the theories are delusional. Sure, there are conspiracies – usually multinational corporations and bankers and government people colluding to amass money and power. They could care less about some minor cult with a few thousand followers.

      Jeff,

      We are talking about a one world government with a certain group of people running things. If you are watching how things are going in the world right now, you will see the beginning of this. I don’t know exactly what you are talking about in Scientology, can you give me that reference? Looks interesting. We are talking about something like the whole world going into a government were you are told what to eat, how many children you can have, who get’s medical help, who dies, work for the government, no private jobs, government production only, etc. I call them Enslavers, people who want to control the masses. That is why I call DM an Enslaver. If you believe in the tech or not, used right, it has made people better and more able in a lot of cases. If it didn’t, it would ever would of taken off and lasted as long as it did. DM has changed it to make people worse off or keep people in a no win situation.

      If you are watching or listening to the news that promote big government and take overs, I suggest you look elsewhere for the truth. Those news sources are bought and paid for by the people promoting social justice and a one world government. Sounds good to some, but it is a trick.

      There are a lot of people, not Scientologist, who use to think of this stuff as a conspiracy theory, but now that they are seeing it pushed through, they are beginning to rethink.

      As for the rest, well, I am not sure what your reality is on why we are here on planet Earth on a computer machine talking to each other about this, so I will leave it at that. Scientology or not, things are not going in the right direction here on planet Earth.

      Thanks Jeff

      As you probably noticed, you hit one of my pet peeves: conspiracy theories. Sure there are conspiracies, usually the wealthy and powerful colluding with other wealthy and powerful people to amass more wealth and power. That was true in 1710, 1810, 1910, and its true in 2010. But when someone starts talking to me about Illuminati, One-Worlders, Enslavers, Whole Track SPs or Snake People, I’m not interested. If someone wants to peddle that sort of thing, fine, but don’t try to tell me it’s a “higher truth” that I can’t see because my “confront isn’t high enough.” No, my gullibility level isn’t high enough to fall for paranoid delusion. And no, I do not get my information from Fox News, nor will I ever.

        Jeff,

        Sorry to hit a sore spot. Yes, you are correct, we did fight a war in the 1700’s against England to get free from their type of Government, you know, one were only the elite have money and the rest are kept dirt poor and work for them ( the government). We also fought in the 1800’s against Enslavers, you know the elite who wanted free labor for profit who used black slaves. In the 1900’s we had Hitler trying to getting rid of the unfit humans. There have been, and still are, people who want to Enslave mankind. Sorry, it is true. Keep the children ignorant in our public schools and make them feel entitled instead of productive, change the history books, keep the poor poor and throw them a bone so they will vote for you, buy up the news outlets so you get out your propaganda. It’s an old story, just new technology. They are here on this planet, always have been. Sometimes they win and the rest of us have to fight to stop them and get our freedom back, but they always come back and try again.

        I really don’t think the gentleman in the Matrix video above watches Fox News, but he still sees. Maybe a person won’t get the exact truth from all sources, but you can start putting it all together and see a pattern. Just like someone said on your blog, there is too much smoke not to be a fire somewhere. I look everywhere, all news channels to see what is going on and then I research to see who it telling the truth and who is lying. If I am told not to look somewhere, that is were I look. I am actually kind of surprised you don’t do the same, I guess I had a different opinion of you, no matter.

        Do you really think that DM is just in it for the money? He could of kept the tech as it was and still made a lot of money. These type of people do not want others “below” them getting better or getting able. THEY NEED TO CONTROL THE MASSES. No matter what group they are running. Of course they know some will become more able, but it is a number’s game to them.

        I wasn’t directing anything at you about your confront, sorry if you took it that way. I wasn’t directing anything at you personally at all. Of course you can believe what you want to believe, you always have and you always will. All I can really advise anyone is to study history, the real history, it will tell you what has worked and what hasn’t worked here on good old planet Earth and there have always been Enslavers who want to control the masses. WHY?

        Do you really believe that our President’s run the show? They are puppets. JFK didn’t want to be a puppet and looked what happened to him and his brother. Conspiracy Theory?

        The money behind this is beyond belief. The group agreement is getting larger. It is just like the mind control in Scientology, do what we say and you will have your freedom. Same with the Enslavers, you do what we say and we will help you survive, of course no one is going to question someone helping another, right? It all sounds so good.

        So yes, like you, I live in a very nice area. I can sit in my patio by my pond and watch the fish and turtle. Look out over the green belt and feel safe in my environment, we have earned it and we should enjoy it. I for one want to keep it that way, reaping the rewards of my production without a government taxing me into a lower standard of living. So you can focus on the mind control in Scientology, but the mind control being done in the masses is not much different, believe it or not, your choice.
