If they consider THIS to be the Golden Age of Narconon, it pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the “Golden Age” moniker…
Never in its history has Narconon been confronted with so many lawsuits resulting from deaths and abuses at its facilities.
At no time has there been the volume of negative media coverage Narconon boasts today.
The reputation of Narconon is at its lowest ever ebb — so much so that Miscavige has attempted to revive it by opening “model” “celebrity” Narconons that have flashed into the pan and then gone black as fast as their ribbons have been yanked.
Apparently they have now undergone a “major transformation” with the “Golden Age of Narconon” — whatever that means. Probably they have implemented the “new” Purification Rundown with special pill bottles and shorts to wear in the sauna, along with a nifty “kit bag.”
And now they are promoting to try and find people willing to open a Narconon. There have not been any new Narconons (other than the movie set “celebrity” NN’s bought with church money) opened in decades. Some have even left the fold and no longer associate themselves with the name. But no new Narconons is further evidence that the massive international expansion occurring coincident with the magnificent reign of Dear Leader Miscavige is a fallacy. Remember, every “ideal org” is supposed to open new “groups” (including Narconons) in their cities.
There has not been a SINGLE new group, mission or org opened by these ideal orgs in the 12 years the “ideal orgs strategy” has been operating. Hell those orgs are too busy trying to make enough to cover their utilities, let alone pay the staff – how could anyone expect they would have time to open any new groups? If they did find anyone willing to do it they would be trying to recruit them for staff so they could keep their reception desk manned during opening hours.
