I agree the question is dumb but it does spark some interesting discussion.
(Warning: the following is full of loaded language and is really addressed to current scientologists)
I would love to hear what Indies think about why Dave is the way he is, how he got that way and how he was able to rise to complete and total power in CoS.
I have for a long time agreed that Dave is a "product" of the scientology system as invented by LRon. Before little Dave arrived to screw it all up, it must have been in pretty good shape, right? I'd like to know what Indies think Dave is a product of, if not the scientology system? Do they think he is a product of the wog system? I don't think Dave had much schooling in wog systems. They can't blame psyches for the way he is
. Would they blame his parents for raising him wrong and not teaching him standard scientology while he was growing up so that he wouldn't squirrel the tech? Or was it his supervisors and auditors' faults? Or would Indies see Dave's "DNA" as the cause of the way he is? If their explanation is simply that Dave is an "SP", okay, but then that leaves me with many more questions. That means he didn't make any tone arm action in auditing and it would have obvious from the first day he got auditing. How could no one see that? I would really like to hear some analysis about how LRon's "100% workable" technology allowed an "SP" to get control of the entire religion of scientology? Indies like to analyze "outpoints", well how about that HUGE glaring outpoint? Was no one around Dave trained on PTS-SP tech? No one was at cause enough or had enough integrity to act before it was too late? No one's communication skills or knowledge of the org board was good enough to organize a movement to successfully oppose him? Scientology training is supposed to give one the ability to OBNOSE which is scientologuese for "observing the obvious" yet no one observed what he was doing when he took over the church decades ago and began his "reign of terror"? In essence, what they are saying is that scientology tech is perfect, but everyone simply failed to use or apply it successfully
to the Dave Miscavage problem. They don't even realize that when they do this they make no sense whatsoever. They all claim to love scientology and love their "church" but completely failed when it came to it's most important application- the saving of their church from an SP.
I challenge Ex Int Base Indies to tell me they did not justify the kinds of things they saw Dave doing as the kinds of things LRon would have done. For example, overboarding. It's probably common knowledge at Int level that LRon had a practice on his ships called overboarding. So when Dave was marching you down to that cesspool for overboarding, weren't you thinking that this must be okay because it's what LRon did?
