On January 21, 2017, Auckland was graced by the presence of the Dear Leader himself, yanking his red ribbon in semi-public view (only his dedicated followers are allowed to catch a glimpse of the great man in person) as he swung open the doors to another of his “gifts to the community.”
18 months later, they have apparently (and proudly) produced their 8th clear. That’s 5 or so per YEAR.
That is what passes for “ideal” as far as scientology is concerned. The population of the country is 4.8 million, growing about 200,000 per year. There is no other in the entire nation (even though Auckland is one of the first orgs on the planet — I think it might have been the first one outside the US) so they are responsible for the whole place.
The expansion equation is simple — scientology is regressing by 199,995 non-Clears each year in their massive push to “Clear New Zealand.”
Meanwhile, with this ideal org they are shouting from the rooftops “We ARE Clearing NZ”.
That is how out of touch with reality they are. They claim to be winning the race while running in the opposite direction. Crazy.
