Today, we are heading off on a 7 day cruise with the Headleys and Smith-Levins.
The blog will go into “vacation mode” — there will be some new posts, and I will also republish important articles from earlier — though not the same ones I did when we took our cruise to Alaska last year. I will still moderate comments as I can — probably not as fast as normal.
I encourage you to read the republished articles again, even if you have read them before, as they contain important information. In some cases I have updated them. And one of them has an accompanying new video on my YouTube channel.
Have a good week, I know we will!
Three Cheers to the SP cruisers

Have a great time!
I freakin love that you guys go off on fun adventures and cruises together.
Other fish to fry, Mike? No wonder you weren’t suited to the deadly serious activity of the agonized future of a cult (adapted from L. Ron Hubbard), that required 24/7 dedication and virtual if not literal disconnection from family, putting your nose to the grindstone to save the planet from the monsters under Hubbard’s bed*.
VWD (Very Well Done)! I hope you and yours enjoy your freedom thoroughly.
* You can’t make this stuff up. From his Affirmations, written 5 years before Hubbard introduced Dianetics:
“Snakes are not dangerous to you. There are no snakes in the bottom of your bed.”
Have a fantastic time, unwind, have a few drinks, laugh, act silly, and remember you have extremely many people wishing you, the Headleys, and the Smith-Levins all the enjoyment y’all can handle.
I will be reading your book and wishing for warm weather and sunshine. 😊😊
If you happen to bump into a Scientologist buy him a drink and tell him what freedom is like.

Mike, have a wonderful vacation with your family. People are seeing you in Brothers Broken.
Enjoy your cruise!
Good to see all the spa’s living their best lives!
Look forward to the articles.
The big predicaments self caused by Hubbard’s Scientology rules implemented in the most extremist ways during the Miscavige era, bear repeating.
That one Hubbard writing about the constraints closing in on the person from the walls like in a movie horror scene, Hubbard’s writings for the followers, during the Miscavige years, are just like that, causing followers to feel totally at the mercy of the Hubbard horror ethics walls closing in on them.
(One possible factor for identifying a “cult’ in the popular layman understanding of the world “cult’, would be to say that a “cult” has a set of claustrophobic horror bad choices forced on the follower–and that these horror bad choices that the “cult” allows are only obvious to outsiders not caught up in the “cult’s” bad choices allowed. In other words, “cults” are obvious to outsiders when the “cult” members have “chosen” not to see the enforced horror bad choices. And as a “pilot” I’ve long thought that the non official splinter Scientologists would be “non cult” followers of Scientology, whereas official Scientologists would be “cultish” for sure. The non official practice of Scientology by splinter Scientologists is a great research subject.)
Have fun, Mike and stay safe!
Bon Voyage y’all.
