Update of my story:
$cientology has been supposedly fighting this war against the evil Psychiatry for over 50 years. Yet, in all the billions of dollars the Co$ has raked in over that time period has there been one TV Commercial juxtaposing $cientology as an alternative to Psychiatric treatment and medication.
No, the real war is and always has been against people who expose $cientology for what it is--a FRAUD. 100's of millions of dollars has been spent on PI's and Lawyers to silence people whose Human Rights have been violated by $cientology. The "war" against Psychiatry is and always has been a diversion.
Deluded $cientologists, who fear ex-communication, go along with the abusive practices and don't speak out. This is not right.
Now to the point: As I've stated, I met David Miscavige while I was in the S.O. It was a very brief encounter. He walked into my office and said in an angry tone, "Who are you? Let me see your stat graph!" His entourage was standing behind him, and it was clear, he was operating on the basis of intimidation.
My impression of David Miscavige after this encounter was that he was an unfriendly douche bag, and he was about 6 inches shorter than me.
Naturally, the moment stands out very vividly in my memory. At the time, I held him in very high esteem, but looking back, there was really no good reason for it--he hadn't done anything that I felt was very impressive. He still hasn't.
L. Ron has stated--the hardest out-point to see is the out-point of omission. In other words, it's hardest to see the thing that isn't there that is supposed to be there. I actually used this piece of "Tech" to help me decide to leave the S.O. because I realized there was nothing social or friendly about our encounter. There was no, "How are you?" "Where are you from?" "Nice to meet you." It was extremely uncomfortable, and I'd be damned if I was going to work 14 hours a day with a guy who acted like a Douche Bag.
For no good reason, David Miscavige confronted me in a manner that I felt was short tempered with the purpose of intimidating me. I thought to myself, "God, if this guy acts like a dick, and he doesn't even know me, he must be acting like a SUPER DICK to the people he does know." This was before I knew anything about what was posted up on the net about him, and being on this MESSAGE BOARD has only reconfirmed my assumptions about this guy.
There is no doubt in my mind, Miscavige is an asshole.
If David Miscavige was a good leader you would see policy changes that would make $cientology more "family friendly." The cost of the Bridge is $350,000 per person. A "bridge" that costs $350,000 per person is a FAMILY BUTT FUCK.
And the thing that really pisses me off is, when I was leaving the S.O. I was asked if I would do the RPF. And I was like, "You have got to be kidding me!! What for??" I wasn't the guy who needed "rehabilitating."
Moreover, I had some huge accomplishments, or "wins," as they say, as a staff member and the C.O. flat-out refused to acknowledge them--he purposely acted like a total jerk towards me. Then, I realized the C.O. was afraid of a "terminal of comparable magnitude" just like L. Ron was. In other words, David Miscavige, L. Ron Hubbard, and the C.O. of the org are cowards who have to depend on intimidating BULLY TACTICS because they are just using people for their own ends.
Furthermore, I wouldn't have minded doing the RPF if I felt these so-called leaders were honorable human beings, who actually cared about me, but it was clear, to me, they didn't. Plus, I had already experienced the random nature of "$cientology Justice," which had more to do with whether or not somebody liked you as opposed to a clear-cut "making amends for actual crimes" you allegedly committed.
So, I said, "Screw you guys!! I'm going home."
And, I can honestly say, I'm much better off now than I ever was as a $cientologist.
OT Priorities: Jabba the Hub writing crappy fiction while wifey gets sent to prison
