You can be certain that the level of hype and bs at the annual IAS Celebration at St Hill this weekend was unparalleled, epic and milestone.
If these new promotional items are any indication, the brazen lies are becoming so astounding that it is hard to imagine anyone actually buying them?
Seriously, they actually believe that handing out WTH (with NO information even about how many were handed out or what percentage of the population they reached or whether anyone even read it) has made Amsterdam the “5th safest city on earth” (wonder where they get that supposed statistic from??).
Again, another whopper. If the Way To Happiness is causing murder rates to drop like this, how come some 6 of the 11 cities in the world with highest murder rate are in Venezuela and Colombia (see Wikipedia). These two countries have had more WTH distribution than anywhere in the world according to scientology. There have been about 8 IAS Freedom medal winners from these two countries — all awarded for having handled the crime problem with WTH.
This one is just absurd.
Why don’t they NAME these “housing projects” as I guarantee you if you went to them nobody would have a clue about WTH and that 3-4 murders a day over years has not been reduced to none of three years. One or the other end of that claim (or maybe both) is untrue.
The crime here is not simply that they lie — but that they get people to hand over money on the basis of their lies. They present these things as being facts beyond reproach. After all, who would believe the most ethical organization on earth would lie to them?
These are but 3 recent examples. I am sure when we get the breakdown of the IAS event from this year there will be a whole pile more of these sort of lies that they used right at the event to hard-sell people into giving them more money to “save the world.”
Bernie Madoff I am sure regrets the fact that he was not smart enough to couch his scam in a religious cloak. He would probably not be in jail today if he had figured that angle out.
