This link is to some great recent years' video footage of buildings at Int. I just saw it again, and post it, since it is just really good footage, even though it's 6 years old now.
Around the time of this video, spring 2001, if there were other visits and demonstrations on the highway near the base, the Int RPF was in the middle of being dismantled, and the Int RPFers who were out at Happy Valley still berthing at Happy Valley (Happy Valley is the same as the Castille Canyon Ranch, it's 14 miles east of the base, it's where at the time of this video some farming and animals--pigs, chickens), but the Int RPFers (about 60 people) were being bused daily to the Castle (see it in the video), those RPFers some days just stayed out at the Happy Valley site when people who did this video were out on the highway filming the base property.
Too bad the people taking the videos didn't take their video shots from a location closer to San Jacinto, and they did so around 7:30am or so when the RPF bus came rolling down the road. They might have surprise video'd the RPF bus (driven at that time by John Eastment) driving into the Castle area of the base.
For people's info, DM's office is between those two round towers on the second floor at the front (left as you look at it from the road) of the building. The balcony in between is his balcony. When they zoom in to the window, that's where his desk is.
The building with the steeple is the Qual building, where staff course training goes on, that's also where a nice small library is, where I spent a good amount of time reading the Encyclopedia Britannica and there was a set of the "Great Books" in the Qual library, and I read those sometimes when I supposed to be studying Hubbard's materials. From 1993-95, ASI staff who live and work in Hollywood, used to come to the base for study time on Saturdays. Those familiar with study time, know that each student is given a "target" each study period for how much Hubbard he will absorb. In 93-95, I was the computer person at ASI and I came to that building weekly with other ASI staff for staff study. When I met my study targets, I would go to the Qual library, which physically is directly below that steeple in the video, and I'd browse reference books (non-Hubbard articles) for pleasure. I loved the Britannica and the "Great Books" that go with the Britannica. Reading better writers and smarter people than Hubbard definitely disaffected my view of Hubbard. So just under that steeple are the seeds to disaffect the members at the top ranks of the movement.
Next time someone does a video, they ought to do a video of the "G's" (the apartments the celebs used to stay at when they came to the bae to help be in movies or just to be guests of DM), and also take some video clips of the "Kirby" apartments, and any of the other outside berthing that RTC staffers live in off-base.
The latest I heard was that they might be moving everyone on base now.
One other thought about WHY the base downsized so massively over the last couple 5 years or so, is that they didn't have enough on-base berthing units, and thus before moving everyone on base, they also needed to downsize to fit into the berthing spaces they have now on base again. (It used to be that years ago, almost everyone used to live on base, and then they needed office space, so they started moving people off base to the berthing apartments (Kirby and Devonshire.) Bad years ago the elite top people had berthing on the base, and one of the pecking order status symbols was the 'exception' staff who still lived on base. Carmen and Gary Weise had their own tiny little cottage. Jon Horwich had the "Horwich house" and security guards had their dorm, and the computer people stayed in the dorm on base, but everyone else lived off base.
There are so many funny little pecking order status things that go on and have gone on, which to me made me think that in some ways the same sorts of pecking order status ranking phenomenon will happen all of their own, and such human behavior is not preventable no matter what the "cult's" rules are.
I mean today, guaranteed regular staff don't go trotting up to the RTC building unless called there, and they don't go trotting up to LRH's home, etc., etc.
There are all sorts of do's and don't's.
