I am taking the liberty of republishing this article from the South African blog here because it is SO perfect, I wish I had written it.
There is some really useful information being put forth on this blog. Keep it on your daily reading list.
With the Golden Age of Tech Phase II event happening live at Flag today and the replay showing in orgs around the world next Friday the hype is at a fever pitch: Consider these statements sent in official promo:
“We will make you a perfect auditor. Period.”
“The dawning of a new age for all Scientologists is here. The skills and knowledge vital to your eternity can be acquired faster and easier than you ever dreamed possible”
“What makes this new dawn possible are three revolutionary training tools that bring a whole new meaning to the words, competence, certainty and “speed of progress up THE BRIDGE.”
“So welcome to the Golden Age of Tech and the era in which your dreams as a Scientologist will come true – for real, for keeps.”
“It will also, very factually, change the face of this civilization, while bringing a whole new reality to the phrase, Let’s clear planet earth once and for all.”
“The new Student Hat Course – Accelerate your study speed with perfect application of study tech.”
“New lightening-fast courses.”
“We are a new breed of supervisors and word clearers, trained at Flag to bring the Golden Age of Tech to you. We trained long and hard under tough Flag sups as part of the biggest training program ever… We are a technical force exceeding the magnitude and competence of any earlier corps many times over and we are in your org now – armed with the most spectacular training tools ever. We are here to create a Golden Age of Tech”
It might (or might not) surprise you to know that these statements were made in May of 1996 at the release of the FIRST version of the Golden Age of Tech.
16 years later as we stand at the dawn of a new Golden Age we look back at the last one and wonder why between 8 class V orgs in South Africa (including the Foundation Orgs) there are less than a dozen trained auditors on staff and why 2 of the 5 active field auditors in South Africa have just been expelled and why “speed of progress up the bridge” is hardly noticeable.
The message to those Scientologists who really believe the knight on a white horse is about arrive is this: If you are attending the event, do so with great skepticism. This is an old movie with the same actor. Just better special effects. The story will end in the same way: What is coming NEXT is going to blow you away and Clear the planet once and for all!
