You thought the Terminator was relentless. Hah. Complete wimp when viewed alongside scientology fundraising automatons.
This example says it all.
They raised $20 million or so for Valley “ideal” Org.
And then, as with every other “ideal” org, they go into a panic to get their “CF filing backlog done in order to be ideal.”
And now Valley – the biggest, baddest, most important ideal org on earth, in the midst of the largest concentration of scientologists on earth, with the biggest whales on earth is begging for donated Widows [sic] computers (not too old…) to be able to connect up to “addresso” “via the internet.”
One might naively assume that in the millions they have sucked out of people from all over the world for their ideal org, they have a few thousand to make a trip to Best Buy to pick up some $500 computers? They could not keep 5 of them occupied full time (they don’t have enough people) so for a few thousand they would be set. But apparently $2500 is too much for them to be able to squeeze out of the org Financial Planning (that is the entire payroll of the org for a month) or the ideal org “budget” to buy some computers? Keep in mind, they are going to be buying dozens of $5000 Warehouse 8 EMeters for all the empty auditing rooms, course rooms and Qual offices in their building. And yet they cannot even buy a SINGLE $500 computer. So, what is the solution? Beg for them to be “donated” from the same dead horses who have been being beaten for 15+ years to hand over their cash, securities, credit cards, college funds, inheritances etc etc. How demeaning is this now?
But you can NEVER stoop too low when it comes to asking people to give to any of the numerous “vital” “urgent” “epic” “world changing” causes they come up with.
The “donation” culture of scientology is all-pervasive. This is just a silly example that illustrates the absurdity of it. And how scientology has become an organization of entitled beggars. For everything.
