Line after line plucked from the imaginary world of ideal orgs…
The first para seems almost normal, and it falls to pieces immediately thereafter.
I think the Idea Org strategy is the smartest, most intelligent strategy possible.
And the facts that led you to that conclusion are?
After 13 years not even half the orgs have achieved this preliminary step to “clearing their area” and not a single “ideal org” has significantly expanded or opened new missions and groups in its zone. Many cannot pay their bills. Most are completely empty.
And then there are all the buildings sitting around rotting and accumulating unpaid property taxes.
But apart from that, you are certain this ideal org strategy is brilliant because though LA Org has been declared the “model” ideal org and has been announced “ideal” twice and SH Size — it wasn’t really doing anything at all, so the brilliant COB sent 200 Sea Org members to collapse the Day and Fdn and turn it into a Sea Org Org. And that is now the new and improved “model” ideal org. Are you planning on turning Birmingham into an SO Org? Doubt you could round up 200 SO Members in the UK even if you took everyone from the CLO and AOSHUK and IAS and other assorted hangers-on.
With an ideal org in Birmingham we will also create a fantastic impact across the UK.
Hmmmm. If that was the case, why haven’t the two ideal orgs in London (Day and Fdn) had any impact? They have been operating in the nation’s capital now for 10 years or so? If you’re not feeling the impact from that, then why would your org in Birmingham have any impact on the rest of the UK?
Having an idea org in Birmingham means we will have a position of influence in the society.
Sorry to break this to you Sue, but the ONLY people who think a building somehow makes you big and important are bubbledwellers. And snobs.
But let me pose this question. If you have all these universities and young people and artists and businesspeople and sports people, ballets, orchestras and top football teams — what is holding you back from helping them now? Are you really so condescending that you think all these people would run away from the “only route to spiritual freedom” and “man’s ultimate answers” because your reception desk is not custom built and you don’t have marble floors? Have you ever considered that for something that espouses the pursuit of the spiritual and freedom from the trap of MEST, that over-the-top MEST could even be a turn-off?
Really, have you EVER stopped a minute to think about anything related to this subject Sue?
Having an idea org in Birmingham means the future proliferation of orgs, groups and missions throughout the Midlands.
Oh Sue. Since the ideal orgs opened in London the Celebrity Centre London disappeared, “absorbed” into London Org. Not a single new org has opened in the UK in more than 30 years. Since the London ideal org burst onto the scene, not a single Mission has opened. Nor a Narconon. Nor anything at all.
In fact, in England, Wales and Scotland there are only two Missions listed on scientology.org — Bournemouth and Southampton. Yet in the 1992 edition of WIS? the following missions are listed: Wirral, Cambridge, Carlisle, Chichester, East Grinstead, Fleckary, Hove, Kendal, Leighton Buzzards, London, Norwich, Poole , Southampton, Cornwall, York and Cardiff. That is a reduction of 14. I would hazard a wild guess that the strategy pre-1992 was far more effective at proliferating orgs, groups and missions than the “ideal org” train wreck.
I mean, what are we waiting for?
Really good question Sue. What are you waiting for to wake up from the dream world you are living in?
