Of course the catch is, that if it remotely comes anywhere near crunch, there won't be much of anything to give back.[/quote]
This may be more complex than you or I can fully envisage.
Miscavidge in jail and new leadership may go in directions that are hard to predict.
Ideally a new management may actually decide to work for parishioners rather than suck their blood. That can go many ways.
For example a broad amnesty may tempt some abused back. This IMO would probably be a very limited improvement, specially if they held onto all the policies.
Ideally I'd like to see the Pilots vision of the FZ [ indies included]
started to work with the main church whereby the Church provides training and qual actions, and the majority of auditing is done by the field which becomes indistinguishable from the FZ. And no central control of much at all.
Then a panel to examine policies and decide and which to junk.
Geir Isene is a MUST for such. He wishes to reduce the policies for his company down to , best I recall, 500 lines. He also reduces posts he makes to the bare minimum to make his point. I like that
Then their is the matter of funds. The US government has stepped up to handle the funding of some Church, can't recall ref.
Can this work for a worldwide organisation?
The funds built up by the church should be freely available for
valid restitution, overseen by a neutral agency. if such even exists legally.
All the above failing, as it well might, then the best procedure is to " Pound the COS into dust" , to paraphrase a line from one of my favorite films "Last of the Mohicans."
