Is it possible, folks, that OCMB and EO serve different purposes?
I've always seen this forum as a place for DISCUSSION. On OCMB, Scientologists are allowed to debate things or make arguments, people talk about their experiences, etc. Criticizing this forum for "not getting anything done" seems, at least to me, off the mark. It's a forum; this section is OPINION and DEBATE, no?
Conversely, EO would never put up with scientologists talking about their "wins" over there. It seems to me that EO isn't about talking; it's about doing. And good on 'em for it.
So I'm beginning to see EO and OCMB as groups with separate purposes, filling separate needs, while focused on scientology. Maybe each has its place, and doesn't need to be molded toward the other.
Personally (I'll say it for the last time, then it's STFU): TD is an embarrassment to their cause; keep it, but store it elsewhere, IMO. BUT! This thread here helps me understand it, a bit:
So I stay out of TD, and all is well with me...
At the monthly S.F. protests, besides my wife and me, there are usually just 3 or 4 others that are over 40 years old. Out of 50-100 protesters. Not much OCMB or OG representation out there that I can see.
um, maybe cuz we're wearing masks? (over 40, at SF rally 3x) just sayin'... Anons outnumber OG, this is also a factor. If ALL OG's went out to picket, wouldn't they still be outnumbered?
I think Anonymous is awesome. It's hard for me to believe that anyone here can think that we can win the war with the cult without them.
Agree, completely. But the reason I agree is: OG's (with respect to the general public) are a small number of people, not enough to make an army. Anons give the movement troops, and that's great. But personally, I think we need to sway the opinion of the general public, and in turn the lawmakers, to REALLY get anything to happen. But some have said "I don't care about what the public thinks, they're stupid..." well yes, but how else will real change be effected, I'm wondering.
I think this whole debacle has made us (as OCMBers) look like a bunch of windbags.
A bit... but without those who talk, how would those who walk, know which way?
see you by the pyramid some time, eh?
