No doubt these children were counted on the Auckland “ideal” org stats as a “paid intro service completions”.
Next week, the “Art course”. No doubt they will read a few words of wisdom on the subject of art from Hubbard (a world famous artist?), be handed some crayons and paper and voila, instant stats.
The week after that, perhaps the “play on the swings” course with a $5 donation to keep the stats going up. They will give them some “tech” about playing games and that too will qualify for a course completion.
Anyone who has been around orgs can see this sort of thing a mile away. All the tricks to pretend you are doing well and expanding (especially for “ideal” orgs who come under intense pressure to “10X their stats”) have been used for decades.
What a sham this entire organization is. It’s the Emperor Has No Clothes played on an international scale – why do all these people go along with it? Brainwashing? Delusion?
