Good one RB
Up to the time I left scn in 1982 there were plenty of walk-ins and they weren’t just ex hippies and anti establishment types. The idea of obtaining the mysterious state of Clear and OT and possible paranormal abilities was quite appealing to many people. Once you got some auditing and things were working for you, from that point on it was full speed ahead to get rid of your reactive mind and open the doors to the extrasensory and the paranormal. Reactive mind, subconscious mind, ego, id, whatever – get rid of it and off we go!

I have been fascinated by the paranormal since I was a little girl. Read every book I could find. Read Dianetics. I don’t see scientology as metaphysical in any way shape or form. Because it’s obvious crap to me. Lol I certainly understand the searching and exploring thing. So many more unbelievably fascinating things out there way more beneficial and even more interesting than hubbard’s load of b.s. ☺
A DM whale has put up $16 million to buy up more of downtown Clearwater.
I also heard that the Mormons showed up 15,000 strong in the panhandle even before FEMA showed up. They wore yellow T-shirts with their helping-hands logo. They actually brought the proper tools to really help out. A good sum of money was donated by their church. As if the VMs haven’t been shamed enough already. It amazes me that DM denies what’s happening on planet Earth. He’ll probably put all of the SO in the Hole one day because nobody can run a ship as tight as he.
Slightly off-topic but relevant, the following is a fascinating account of Hubbard’s attempt to take over the Greek island of Corfu during the formative years of the Sea Org and their consequent expulsion.
The Commodore & The Colonels
I scanned over the write up and got some smiles. Even though I figure I already know enough about Scn, as an ex scientologist I sometimes find the historical footnotes are interesting. “Professor Hubbard’s Philosophy School” had an interesting episode in Corfu!
Yet another dramatic event which took place behind the scenes on the other side of the fence concerned two Belfast maintenance fitters, Colin Craig and Jack Russell. On the afternoon of 11 March I received an urgent phone call at my home from a highly nervous and agitated Irishman whose story was that he and his mate had answered an advertisement in the “Belfast Telegraph” for qualified maintenance fitters for the SS “Apollo”.
They were met at Corfu airport and on arrival on board they were told they would work under the Chief Engineer, a brilliant technician who turned out to be a youth of 15. When he discovered what sort of ship it was, Craig locked himself in his cabin feigning sickness. Here he remained for two days without food (which he proclaimed uneatable) whilst his mate was becoming slowly but surely converted to scientology and would burst into the cabin shrieking, “I’m clear”; he appeared to Craig to be getting more and more insane as his course of pills and E Meter treatment progressed.
Eventually Craig managed to persuade the confused Russell to go ashore against his will. After escaping from the ship with a certain amount of difficulty, the Irishmen met up with some of the visiting U.S. 6th Fleet in a nearby cafe. On learning their story the sailors, in the words of Craig, “blew their top” and insisted that they phone me immediately and fortunately they got through to me at my home in the country. I ordered them to go direct to the Hotel Suisse and to stay there until I called for them in the morning, and to be careful to keep their doors locked and to have their meals in their room.
After making the necessary arrangements with the hotel, I contacted the Aliens Police who were delighted to co-operate and posted an all night guard in the hotel lobby in case the Harbourmaster or the scientologists should try and inveigle them back to the ship. Sure enough, Hubbard’s police soon tracked them down only to be confronted by an armed police guard.
When I called at the Hotel Suisse in the morning, I found a highly excitable Craig and a most neurotic Russell, who were later repatriated to the U.K. but not before they had made a statement to the police, which was quickly relayed to Athens where it was received with delight by the Security Police as this was the first unbiased and unsolicited evidence they had as yet obtained. Russell’s story made the front page news in the “Belfast Sunday News” with the headline: “Belfastman tells of his escape from horror Ship”.
Fascinating how Hubbard spun the story. It’s like he was lying to all of us from the beginning.
“A better cognition” LOL

Internet entheta lines hey? I’ve been called a lot of things in my life but that one is unique. Some of us out here “basking on the fringes of the internet” have known Scientology prior, during and after the internet invasion. Of all the criminal enterprises out there, Scientology sure got exposed big time! If there ever was an indictment as to the abusive religious scam Scientology actually is, the internet should be commended for a job well done in exposing it. Geezers, even the once all encompassing TV falls by the wayside compared to the power the internet wallows in. It’s interesting to note that both Hubbard & MIscavige never saw it coming – so much for the OT bullshit & whole track knowledge they rave on about hey?
The electronics evolution – the creator of Scientology’s worst nightmare! Even Chan the Noodle Man is scared of it.

You know what I love about that this? Scientology printing presses producing huge piles of garbage that no one ever reads outside of Scientology. All that shit gets chucked in the nearest trash in by the public. ? BTW can we all quit talking about LRH “technology”? There is no “technical knowledge” … just a bunch of science fiction bullshit on steroids. I was reading a bunch of the OT materials on Wikileaks this morning just for shits and giggles and was laughing my ass off. “Scriptures” my ASS ? And get this — I didn’t have to pay $750,000 to access all the over 600 pages of OT materials. Just a few mouse clicks and it was all mine to do with it what I wanted for FREE.
One time when I was reading an OT process and thinking about it I realized I was starting to “run” it. No big deal. Any type of directed mental activity might do so. “Create a point in space. Go to it.” blah blah
The cognitive dysfunction among $camologists about the cult’s expansion and increased membership is epic self-deception. Another instance of “pay no attention to the dwindling numbers behind the curtain!” How the leadershit of this cult can think he can pull the wool over the faithful’s eyes forever is the (small) height of hubris and hilarity.
The “leadership” of this cult doesn’t just “think” her can pull the wool over the “faithful’s” eyes – he KNOWS he can.
But that doesn’t say much for Miscavige . He’s not that smart.
His con, his fraud, is OBVIOUS. For crying out loud, it is SO obvious. He been doing the same things over and over and over and over and over, for many years. The same shopworn cons which are now THREADBARE.. An average IQ 10 year old, paying even half way attention could see right thru them..
Miscavige is not that smart.
On the other hand, they ARE that stupid.
Seriously, the Still Ins – excepting the aware UTRs – the Stlll Ins are DUMB.
Experience has shown they will believe ANYTHING Miscavige tells them – like six year olds.
Except they’re in their 40s, 50s and 60s, most of them.
Yet there’s this 6 year old mindset.
Conceptually its kind of like, you know, “Well, MY Daddy said ___________. My Daddy says so and so and if HE says it its true, then it IS, so there!”
Remember when you had this mindset? Little children have it. We all “thought” like this, very early on.
But the difference between them and us is THESE people NEVER grew out of that mindset.
Most of them are old enough now where they don’t have a real Daddy anymore.
Before him it was Hubbard.
If Daddy says it, its true. Whatever Daddy says is ALWAYS true. Daddy would never lie. He knows a lot and he loves me and he always, always knows what’s best for me. If I question or disobey Daddy I’m naughty and there’s something wrong with me and I deserve to be punished.
That IS the mindset.
They are six year olds, mentally and emotionally.
If they weren’t in THIS cult, they’d be in some OTHER cult, , under the sway of some other Daddy authority figure who’d figure out a few tried and true stratagems that would always work to keep them totally under his thumb.
Because they WANT it. The WANT to be helicoptered over and micro-managed. Indeed, they demand it..
So, Miscavige obliges them.
If not him, it would be someone else.
At this time in 2018, staff and public are told NEVER to look at any wog printed material, television or internet article that has anything to do with Scientology. ONLY source material such as Scientology TV, the official Scientology website or Scientology publications are acceptable. Further, they are told to write knowledge reports if they inadvertently see a clip of “entheta” television or an “entheta” headline on a magazine in a wog office. To do anything else is to invite a sec check and a long and expensive ethics cycle. People that want auditing and training WILL do this. This makes it incredibly hard to introduce a current Scientologist to other points of view. Clubbed seals indeed.
Ann Davis says
Wow! Fascinating analogy. I think that’s spot on cause my Daddy said it was! Awesome Aqua

Seems like Richard might finally be catching on to the game that’s being played 🙂 Run Richard. Run like the wind!
Ammo Alamo says
I was manager for a plant that operated a dozen big multi-color printing presses, each weighing tons, the largest over a hundred feet in length. Our largest, fastest, and most modern press was rated at 2000 feet per minute. It printed up to eight colors at a time, the operator working from a TV screen at the end console, adjusting controls for ink and water and speed and stretch – that was how the units kept in time with each other. But it was hard to keep quality up unless speed was lowered to under 1500 fpm, which angered the accountants because they wanted full 2000 fpm production no matter what – they paid a couple million for that press expecting 2000 fpm productivity.
So I got experts in the plant, they hemmed and hawed and advised. I tried to convince the boss that we could get more production with less cost by simply assigning a second press operator full time, and a press helper sharing paper loading and materials stocking among several presses. But in the end we still paid one operator to run this huge two-or-three operator printing press all by himself, thus ensuring it would never operate at anywhere near expected productivity simply due to the limits of human endurance and attention span. While other operators were running 20″ wide presses containing four print units and running 750 fpm, the guy on the big press making the same wages was handling a 40″ wide press with eight print units, running at 1500 fpm. It was easily twice the work and more for one guy, compared to the other operators, but the blind leaders never could see the evidence right in front of them.
It was like the Sea Org in the way we treated whoever was to operate the big press – they demanded more than was humanly possible, then got angry when it proved to be impossible.
There’s no business like Org business like no business I know
Everything about it is concealing, everything that Davy disallows
Nowhere could you get that happy feeling when you are milking that big cash cow!
There’s no people like Org people, they smile when they are low
Even with an Ideal Org you know will fold
And your hot prospects have all turned cold
Still you wouldn’t change it ’cause you’re in the know
Let’s go on with the show!
Totally LOVE your lyrics and will be humming that song all day. Thanks so much for your art.
Thank you Glenn and thanks Irving Berlin.

Scribe. ..sooo funny!..
Glad I elicited a chuckle. ?
Idle Morgue says
Marilyn Monroe and Donald O’Connor and Ethel Merman…Scribe, you have RUINED that song for me 🙂
You Whole Track Implanter, you! Now I’ve got an earworm.
At least it replaces the earworm I’ve had of Meryl Streep’s voice at the start of “Out of Africa”…”I had a farm in Africa…I had a farm in Africa at foot of the Ngong Hills…I had a farm in Africa…”
Walking around with THAT for the past week.
So thanks for my new earworm 🙂
It’s all because of Annie Oakley.
This is an echo of Winston Smith listening endlessly to Big Brother (Book 1984).
Good one RB! Just like everything else in the cult one simple observation of fact gets barraged by a plethora of unrelated garbage in an effort to cover up the truth. Despicable.
LOL! But – Why are Staff always smoking? I never saw this personally and it would seem they have precious little disposable income vs what smokes cost these days. 6 or 7 bucks a pack and all.
Ann Davis says
I think I remember some exes saying they did smoke, as lrh said it wasn’t harmful. Or maybe that was in the sea org? And before they were insanely expensive.
Smoking not harmful. Well, an OT8 just had part of a lung removed because of smoking for 50 years. Science is true, Scientology isn’t.
I was only twenty years old and talking to a Sea Org guy years ago and I said: “Isn’t smoking bad for your health?” He angrily said: “Well I don’t have that consideration!” I thought he was a fucking idiot to spend money on something that did nothing for him. That was probably the beginning of the end for me and the cult.
I Yawnalot says
Smoking? They are just doing what source did. Any coronary surgeon will tell you the truth about what smoking tobacco does to the blood plumbing & pumping system of the human body. Hubbard for all his so called ‘wisdom’ treated his own body with alarming contempt. And so it filters down through the Scientology organization that whatever source did must be good for you. Goodness me, ‘just do what Ron would do…’ I couldn’t think of a worse computation to base you life upon. The other attributes such as spreading & selling lies is well documented but the obvious truth escapes Scientologists – Scientology is bad for you!
Never-in here, but I’ve seen a lot of video footage of sea org members taking a smoke break. I guess they have to relieve the stress some way. And besides, Ron said it was okay, and he smoked, what, 3-4 packs of Kools per day?
Scientology means knowing how to show.
Mark Foster says
Scientology means knowing how to row the rue canoe
Scientology means knowing you need to blow Big Blue
Scientology means loving to lick the bottom of Davey’s shoe
Scientology means admitting that none of it is true
I Yawnalot says
Also learning how to blow.
(Oh u so bad – blow means to leave, not that other activity or white powdery substance!)
Scientology – Scio – defined as ….the Science of…..
Tology … defined as … peddling religion promising the followers super powerz and because Humans have built in mechanisms that want to believe in a power greater than themselves….
They will BELIEVE if you use the Standard Religious Hat Pack of the repeater technique. Contact a Scientologist today and GET TRAINED!
‘$cientology cognitions’ = brain washing. How much starch do you use when you wash a brain?
No TV show can find your ‘ruin’ and sell you misplaced hope. The same goes for every video kiosk in every mOrg.
It’s not so much the starch they tried on my brain, but the bleach that stung,
Poor Rick, taking shit and pussy whipped!
Another ex so says
I remember very well going to those awful events.
This year alone more than 75000 flier were printed equaling 5 millions words which reach 20 million people in equador alone. If these people were placed side by side theu would reach to the moon…..
Well done RB
Robert Almblad says
Perfect RB!!! When cults get discovered/exposed as “cults”, the result is that new membership shrinks and the leader often implodes the group by going after their own members to “force” them to stay. Jim Jones, heaven’s gate, etc…kept their members by killing them. David miscavige keeps his by spending $ millions “going after” decenting members and ex-members. This has been done in such a horrific way that it has spawned innumerable public service news, websites, TV, etc.. warning the general public of the dangers of Scientology.
I believe the “last stand” in Scientology are the pampered Whales. These big money donors can simply pay miscavige hundreds of millions, (which should have been paid in Federal and State taxes.)
The IRS gave the cult a second life, because this tax free money is used to “kill” dissenting members instead of used for charitable purposes, which is how they got the IRS exemption in first place.
I Yawnalot says
Says it all.
All I can say is….hahahahahahahahahha. As long as you sound “elated” you are safe. Measuring their MEST is their new yardstick for success? tsk tsk tsk tsk.

No doubt about it. Tiffany has got to be Sea Org!
Oh, hey, Tiffany! I actually tried your suggestion.
Guess what? Didn’t work.
