Michael Lewis has driven his clown car into town once again to offer up a “seminar” that sheds light on what really happens inside the bubble of scientology.
“Flourish and prosper” is a much over-used scientology catchphrase. It is code for “make money” just as they use the strange “we are 1000 steps closer to making our target” instead of saying they got in $1,000. It seems they understand how grotesquely money-oriented they are and are trying to keep this hidden from the world.
But Michael Lewis blows it. He uses the right euphemism but then comes right out and says it plainly. What is scientology really about? Money, money, money.
For the orgs it is all about trying to get as much as they can. For the scientologists it is about making enough money to be able to afford the “Bridge to Total Freedom.”
This is scientology encapsulated into a single promotional piece.
All the weird shit, grammatical errors, punctuation errors, code language and jargon wrapped up neatly in one short page. It even has the standard scientology “come on” with questions posed that will supposedly be answered — that doesn’t in fact happen. For example he is not going to tell you that one of the things you should NEVER do with your money is give it to a money-obsessed cult.
And these are the people who are saving mankind….
