You inspect. You find the Ethics Officer isn't enforcing
the Liability penalty ("Pete is my pal and I . . ."). So you
assign the Ethics Officer a Condition of Liability as he gets,
naturally, what he failed to enforce.
Now they mutiny and you assign a Condition of Treason,
shoot both of them from guns and fill the posts.
Orgs where Ethics is tight and savage grow in numbers!
Man thrives oddly enough only in the presence of a
challenging environment. That isn't my theory.
If the org environment is not challenging there will
be no org.

HCO PL 20 October 1967 Conditions, How to Assign
A challenging environment is not the same as a savage environment.
While it is true that a savage environment would be a challenge, it certainly isn't true that savagery is required to create a challenging environment.
Musical chairs is a children's game. It is meant to be fun.
It is a challenge of who has the fastest reaction when the music stops.
There is nothing savage about it.
Look at what David Miscavige did with it.
He added cruelty to the game.
He turned a fun & games challenge into a brutal competition that threatened everyone's survival should they fail to be savage enough to win an empty chair.
(PS--anagram David Miscavige's name & you get: Vivid Acid Games)
As the amount of people was getting thinner, Dave started to let the music play longer. This went on for hours.
When it got down to around 20 people, it started to get VERY physical. Mark Ingber and Mike Sutter actually destroyed a chair by pulling it from each other and fighting and punching each other to let go of it. Mark Ingber actually ripped the seat of the chair from the frame and sat down on it on the floor! That counted and Mike left the game!
As the final people were weeding out, people were being thrown to the ground, pushed against walls and otherwise totally fighting for a chair. If you could imagine what it would be like if pro athletes played a game of musical chairs, that was what it was like for the last 15 or so people.
It was very sad to watch. People, who were best friends for years, were throwing their best friend to the ground for a chance to get a seat in a chair. Most of the people who had lost were just made to stand there and wait. Wait and do nothing except wonder where you would end up, what would you do, who would you ever see again?
Is there one single person who believes that David Miscavige was attempting to carry out any one of LRH's ridiculous HCO PLs as he methodically & cold-bloodedly thoroughly degraded those SO members for his own demented amusement?
An hour later, all the different groups had found their way back to their little space under a desk or in a chair and most people had gone to sleep for the night. Sobs and faint crying could be heard for hours throughout the room. If you were not crying yourself to sleep that night, someone else was doing the crying for you.
(bold emphasis mine)
Could that be any more saddening? Or sickening?
David Miscavige is a sadistic pig (piglet).
He can put lipstick & perfume on the pig of Scientology all day long with his "restorations" but neither he nor Scientology will ever have any of the glory or accolades of respectability or credibility.
He will be remembered as an insane, psychotic loser--just like the founder.
