Dear Tory, mr_bad and all,
Thank you for all of your questions and support. I have read many of your posts and watched your videos Tori. All of you have given me hope and inspiration in making it out in the real world and also for finding out about the REAL DEAL with $cientology.
So glad to hear that another one is out and welcome to the board! It's quite an eye opener, isn't it, the first time you google Scientology. I was out of Scientology for years before I discovered OCMB and other sites and started uncovering some of the lies I had been told. Right royally pissed me off, too! The lies, that is.
As I am newly posting for the first time and growing some hair on my chest, there are a few things I donâ€™t feel I should talk about right now, but I will answer any questions that I feel comfortable to answer right now.
I donâ€™t want to give away WHEN I left the base. This makes it easier for OSA as they can then narrow the target.
I donâ€™t want to say what posts I held or what org I was in. There are several orgs at the base, for all they know I couldâ€™ve been right there in RTC. And wouldnâ€™t OSA love to find out?
Yup, I am quite sure OSA would love to find out. You are quite wise to play your cards close to your chest, and most of us fully understand. I do believe OSA might be in a bit of overwhelm trying to figure out who we all are, though. There are a lot of critics these days.
Okay, yeah the books and materials are all being redone, revised, etcâ€¦ I first noticed this when I started seeing â€œBased on the Works of LRHâ€?. I even asked about this to certain people in R Comps like Russ Williams and Diane (forgot her last name). The answers I got were that there were either LRH advices or directives for all of this. I should have asked to see it in writing â€“ just like policy says, but I erred too much on trust. Possibly a bad habbit. During the Golden Age of Tech evolution I remember COBs whole selling point about it was that there were newly found advices about patter drills and the proper way to train people and that we had it all wrong and that the GAT would correct this and finally weâ€™d be on-Source! Gimme a freakin break please! There were glaring out-points flying all over the place. But like I said, the standard operating procedure at the base is to ignore and violate policy in the name of â€œproductionâ€?, â€œhandling Hill 10â€™sâ€? and â€œItâ€™s a COB order.â€? Letâ€™s also look at history, remember that book â€œAll About Radiationâ€?? Back in the 70â€™s it used to say on the cover â€œBy a Nuclear Physicistâ€? or something. Hmmmmâ€¦ Where did that go and why? Ha! You can even compare older versions of Dianetics and find glaring revisions.
Believe me, during the â€™91 OEC Vols and Tech Vols evoltion, I noticed a truck load of PLs and Bulletins completely left out. Nowhere to be seen again. If you can still find the old vols, check it out for yourself. Itâ€™s that obvious. Look how big the type is in the new vols! Itâ€™s bigger to fill the blanks! Plus, we were up for days â€“ weeks during that evolution to get them released on time. I wonder how easy it is to control and pull the wool over peopleâ€™s eyes who donâ€™t sleep? Good job guys! Youâ€™ve earned some movie tickets and an SHSBC jacket. Now donâ€™t tell me I never did anything for you!
Interesting you should mention this. We have been discussing the "lost definition of an F/N" on another thread and I had been about to post a question as to whether the tech vols had been revised. I was thinking they must have been for the Golden Age of Out Tech to be enforced.
I recall sometime around 1990 and order went to orgs to replace all the green books with the newer editions. No old copies were allowed to be kept for comparison. The old ones were supposedly being donated to prisons. Later on I enquired and found out the whole lot had been pulped. I guess they couln't quite risk the out PR of a book burning!
Did the people who were doing the revisions not query the changes, or did they not notice, or were they too scared to say anything? Or was it the slavish unquestioning obedience to the all-knowing, infallible management? I did run across a couple of the latter type before I left, they are quite something!
I learned that keeping my mouth shut was sometimes the wisest policy in the SO, as I'm sure many SO members did, but I've always believed that most actually had a clue. This idea of 'enemy lines' and 'disaffection' if anyone noticed and outpoint was, I believe, one of the most destructive ideas ever to take hold in any group, anywhere. It totally prevents any chance of self correction in a group, and opens the door for a completely facist regime to evolve in a group that once supported freedom of speech and human rights.
I do have a question. In the late 80's and early 90's, orgs that reached St Hill size were awarded a Universe Corps team. But a few years ago Tampa reached St. Hill size and they were told at the event that they could go to Flag to get their OT levels. Is there no more Universe Corps?
I have been wondering a lot lately about the people still in and if they know that they have a lot of friends out here (in this seething mass of SPs and entheta), who will give them help and support if they just walk out the door. Int is especially a worry as it is so isolated and all mail and telephone calls are monitored now, I believe. Any ideas on how to get the message in there?
