This is “sea org” command.
Here, “Command” means assuming an unearned position of authority (bestowed strictly by signing a billion year contract) where you order people around as if they are all your personal slaves. “I am counting on you” and “I am expecting” etc etc. The email below from the “CO FSSO” is a perfect example of the entitlement such people feel.
Of course, no one would want to miss these events.
This is magnified when the Sea Org “command” is in the hands of an MAA/Ethics Officer. Often no more than children, they are suddenly handed control over others’ lives. They can dictate to them far more than that they must show up to events. They can control who they are allowed to speak to. Who they may work with. What they are to do with every aspect of their lives.
It tends to breed a form of ignorant arrogance and cruelty that is hard to describe for anyone fortunate enough not to have experienced it personally. Think Joffrey from Game of Thrones.
This is the world of scientology.
