It opened the flows…
The ridiculous things they try to assign cause and effect to.
Bottom of the Bridge at the “Advanced” Org
They promote things that should be done in missions and lower level orgs. I guess when there is so little to talk about anything suffices.
Who knew he was gone?
More weird stuff at an “Advanced” Org
They’re going to teach people how to VIEW art???
Celebrate Mothers in scientology
Disconnection from their children.
Divorce from husbands who don’t buy into scientology.
Lots to celebrate.
With a bunch of scientology kids
A family portrait
Question for you Claire…
Why didn’t you join STAFF. That’s what Ron says you should do. If you had the realization you were a “fist dynamic scientologist”?
Do as I say, not as I do…
Well, not even that really. Do as I tell you and ignore some of the things I write that are clearly just for “PR.”
How does this quote square with the policies about welfare and downstats?
Same way What Is Greatness about loving ones enemies sits alongside Fair Game…
Jokers and Degraders
It’s healthy anywhere except in scientology…
Still gearing up
It may be years before any of these GAA trainees ever get back to begin the process of clearing their area…
It’s all the psychs fault.
And Xenu. Can’t forget Xenu.
It’s sorrowful to not know about dianetics and scientology
But the pain REALLY begins when you DO know
Didn’t anyone tell you that was canceled with the “Golden Age” of Tech?
They’re still gearing up too
The ideal org wasn’t enough to get them expanding
Pat Ourselves on the Back Night
All is good in Kharkov. Here is a success story: I left and am in Germany.
The BIG Event in Chicago
It’s going to be massive, everyone is “Uniting for Freedom”
“Everyone” gathers for a mandatory dance for the video crew. This is all they could round up with that much effort??

Claire Taylor? I thought I recognized that name…
Eight years ago, she was scolding fellow Scientologists for not showing up for various events and other “give me your money” traps.
Anne Hill says
“Kharkov is blooming despite the daily shelling.” Probably one of the most tone-deaf sentences I’ve read in a while.
Alyssa O,Rourke? Am I reading that right?
Alyssa O’Rourke I guess. Study tech doesn’t work and it doesn’t help.
Melbourne: Alison Ainsworth. Not Dave and Dot Ainsworth’s child? If so, that’s sad. It would probably mean that they are still in.
Yeah Alison is their daughter, she grew up & lives in Melbourne and plays acoustic/alternative folk music if you want to google her. Dot and Dave are still connected on social media to many old school Melb families but unsure if they’re on course etc.
How they can suspend reality and not see that nothing of substance has happened since the days of the white shirt/maroon jacket org uniform of the late 90s… Serra, Simes, Micallef, Middleton, Peart, Henry, Bassett, Grogan, Caligiuri, Price, Frank.. same old surnames same old delusion
Thanks for that. I knew a McAuliffe.
Wow, the guy in the green hat is really into the dance video.. he should really be front and center. He’s like tone 400 and everyone else is 2.4-2.9
Hahaha you’re so right
How to view art:
“What is behind any art?” Usually the wall it hangs on if it’s a painting.

The Seventh Coin (1993): crashed, burned and sank without trace (box office take $31,023) – https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105361/
Peter O’Toole must been desperate for money if he signed up.

Itty-bitty bit part and not credited.

What a stellar career, an utter nobody since 1993 and only survives from bullshitting the sheepbots.
I almost choked on my coffee when I saw that dance (and I use that word very very loosely) clip.
The caveman in the clip is Fred Astaire compared to them –

Looking at those BIG freaking certs for everything … Where the HELL are you supposed to put all those things? … AND if you throw them out cause you can’t afford a storage locker …
* by the way, that mushroom thing in Chicago is really kind of unsettling to look at, I’d do photo ops somewhere ekse, maybe in front of Wrigley Field or the Chicago theater …
LOL. You know it! I remember moving from LA to Pittsburgh, in the earlier 2000s, and ditching all my “certs” that couldn’t fit without folding in half, to fit in a briefcase, where I kept my “val docs” from life.
Yes, where do you store those huge sized “newer” certs.
The old certs at least fit in a typical briefcase.
I guess the bookstore COULD get created a new product, to sell there, which holds a person’s certs without the need to fold them.
I’m just forever coming up with products, the old ASI final LRH “LRH products” mindset he just spells out nonstop in the LRH final advices to ASI.
Joe Pendleton says
OK … So the “crossed arm pose” with the “ethics presence stare” is out and the smiling face with arms at their side pose is in … Must be the new “Recruit Pose TECHNOLOGY” … Yeah, it’s a wee bit more appealing …
I wonder since a lot of Sea Org members quit Sea Org, when they did the Life Orientation Course.
Also years ago, just a massive percentage of the Class 8s trained in the later 1960s early 1970s, all quit by the mid 1980s.
The more trained as Scientologists they get, it seems the more they quit.
They give Hubbard a pretty thorough study, and eventually quit, that’s probably proven by stats.
So, even though they push training on their Hubbard admin, and on their Hubbard tech (quackery pseudo-therapy and then the OT 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 exorcism of Xenu’s body-thetans dumped onto earth during the Wall of Fire/4th Dynamic Engram with the volcanos and all), the more they train and do the quackery, the more they quit.
Long ago critics I remember reading say the more you do the more likely you end up getting RPFed and quitting.
What’s so funny, is KSW is where LRH says let people quit fast.
People aren’t quitting fast enough, but the long haulers are quitting anyways.
Cram the long haul diehards on KSW, to inform them newly, they ought to have quit faster.
LRH himself was a long hauling diehard, who didn’t quit til the end, when he admitted failing, and told Sarge he’s not coming back to earth, so he’s a really bad example/good example for the diehards.
But KSW says let them quit fast, so they are all wrong, for not quitting faster. Hubbard too.
I Yawnalot says
Nice summary of the obvious Chuck (but not so to some).
The life span of being a Scientologist is a study of “waking up to yourself” and smell the coffee the elephant in the room is drinking.
I was there during the KTL/LOC evolution and the LOC drained the staff so quickly management had to stop the leak and withdrew the course asap. All that was asked was what is your goal/post in life? Sure as hell turned out to NOT be a Scientology one for those asked that question!
Now that the mystical scn OT levels are widely known that kills the science-y promotion of scn. They need a new approach. How about a Mysticism Test? “How Mystical Are You? Take The Church of Scientology Mysticism Test!”
You could have a questionnaire with questions like “Do you believe in ghosts?” and rate yourself from totally disbelieve to totally believe and so on. It might be fun and probably get more attention on the street and on the internet than a lame Personality Analysis.
“The way of a strong man it to help his less fortunate fellows.” Really? I am sorry I do not see that behavior in scientology. I see more of “hit him while he is down.” That type of behavior.
Maybe I am wrong but it looks like a dog eat dog world. Sort of like “the beatings will continue until the moral gets better!”
