"THETA TRAPS: There is no subject more interesting than that of THETA TRAPS. It is of vast interest to any invader. It is of vaster interest to your preclear. How can you trap a thetan? By curiousity, by giving him awards and prizes,(of an implant), by retractor screens, by mock-ups, by ornate buildings which he will enter unsuspectingly only to be electroniced down; by many such means the thetan is reduced from KNOWING to a colonist, a slave, a mest body," L.

Seattle Org shakedown: $350K off the top
Dave Touretzky Sep 26, 6:39pm
Apparently the SuperPower scam isn't the only building project
Scientology is using to suck cash out of its members' wallets. The
Seattle Org is one of about 20 orgs trying to raise funds for an
"Ideal Org" renovation project. As related in the email below, INT
Management has decided to shakedown these groups for $350,000 each.
The money comes off the top of any local fundraising efforts and must
be remitted immediately. And it looks like other payment demands may
Scientology is bleeding its members to death. Nice work, Poodle-boy.

Subject: Urgent Update on Our Building Strategy from the Seattle Day ED, Mark Arnold
*Special To All *Seattle Ideal Org Supporters:
*Urgent Update On Our Building Strategy!!*
We have just been informed by Management of a change in how the rest of the
Ideal Org projects are to be carried out and we want to ensure this data is
duplicated by our entire field. As we have informed you earlier an
international project management firm has been retained by the Church of
Scientology International to manage the Ideal Org renovation projects
worldwide including ours here in Seattle. While this is still the case we
have just been informed that a second firm has been retained to handle the
architectural and design aspects of these projects. This firm will be
responsible for the entire architectural and design aspect of our project in
Seattle. Besides us there are about 19 other Orgs at the stage of having
bought a building and ready to get started on plans. Each Org is required to
make a payment of $350,000 to get started. As these plans are required
before any renos can begin and they will take some time to do, the money is
needed now. Up to this point our priority has been to pay off our mortgage
but due to this shift in plans we are now going to raise this money to get
the plans moving forward as priority #1. Doing this ensures we will stay in
the next wave of Ideal Orgs and not fall to a later group. We want to get
this project done now, not in a year or two.
We are therefore asking everyone to do all they can to back this up. If you
have a pledge, do all you can to make it good now. We will be doing
everything possible to have fundraisers contact you but do not wait for
that. Call the Org at 206-284-0604 and tell the receptionist you want to
donate to the Seattle Ideal Org Project and someone will help you. With your
continued support an Ideal org in Seattle will be a reality.
Make it so!
ML (Much Love)
ED SEAD (Executive Director, Seattle Day Organization)
