Captain Miscavige’s Mecca is open. And now the next chapter begins.
Obviously He can’t let the demand for money slow down. Time for a new gimmick.
So after collecting an estimated $300 million for a building that was supposed to cost $40 million (though now they are claiming it cost $260 million which is a staggering $800+sq/ft if it is really 300,000 sq ft), of course there is no money to build the “LRH Hall”. The figure of $260 million now being floated is probably some attempt to counter the Garcia lawsuit — “proving” they did need all that money, though the records of the expenditures would make for interesting reading I am sure.
The briefings now being done to kick off the new fundraising contain some other interesting tidbits too. The clubbed seals are proudly being told that Captain Miscavige inspected the building numerous times from top to bottom, and marked every tiniest imperfection he found with a blue sticker. I took 4 months of repeated inspections and corrections to complete the final touches. This is why the opening was delayed. And this is the guy who will have His lawyers tell the court he has absolutely no time in his impossibly busy schedule to be deposed. Of course not, He is too busy sticking blue post-it notes on bathroom grout that is not the required 3/32nds wide.
The briefing also includes the “fact” that the “LRH Hall” is to seat 7000 people. Note well, as this will eventually be “forgotten” (like GAT 1 “standard tech painstakingly researched by COB to be just as LRH wanted it” has been forgotten) as He is never going to build anything that big as it will be half empty. This hall though is a tough sell. It was OK when it was part of the whole “Super Power Package” where the “donors” are going to be able to get “super powers”…. Who wants to give money to a place where all you get to do is listen to Dearl leader spout Shermanspeak 3 times a year? NOBODY likes going to these events.
So, Dear Leader hit upon a new gimmick. Throw in an “LRH museum”. Why? He just put one front and center in the ground floor of his Mecca (that nobody is allowed to enter without a prepayment for services, payment to IAS and NSA security clearance).
Well, it’s another stroke of double genius:
1. It makes Him seem “On Source” — after all He is “preserving the legacy” of L. Ron Hubbard, but more importantly
2) It can be used as a guilt trip by the regges for the suckers “you do not want to support the legacy of LRH?”
And along with the new gimmick comes new bs statuses.
What you gave previously that was purportedly for the Sooper Power Building AND “L. Ron Hubbard Hall” was apparently NOT for the “L. Ron Hubbard Hall”, you have to start all over again if you want status in the hall. Ah well….
BUT, look on the bright side. For just $10 million you can become “nobility”. Fond memories of the good old days when if you showed enough loyalty to the king and handed over enough gold or troops, he would bestow a rank of nobility upon you. Scientology the religion of the 21st Century? 14th century seems more appropriate.
