Scientologists Warned about Facebook “Entheta” After Leah Remini’s Departure

Run away! Leah Remini's in your Facebook!

Run away! Leah Remini’s in your Facebook!

Oh, this is rich. One of our tipsters forwarded to us a message that has been sent to Scientologists about how to avoid all the “entheta” — negative press — that has enveloped Scientology, especially since the departure of Leah Remini.

Since the news of Remini’s defection broke on July 8, Scientologists — who are obsessed with rules and regulations and can hardly put on their shoes in the morning without instructions from the church — have been asking for help understanding what’s going on.

The problem is, how do you warn your fellow church members about being exposed to online entheta without running into it yourself? And how do you find out which of your so-called friends is actually in contact with evil “Suppressive Persons” that you’ve now been ordered to cut out of your lives? These are the kinds of questions that haunt the members of Tom Cruise’s congregation.

Well, here’s some helpful advice to keep your Facebook page SP-free, courtesy of the nice folks at Scientology…

There is a way to help keep entheta off our lines. Using the new facebook graph search you can simply type “My friends who are in [insert SP group here]” and it will pull up a page where you can message all of your friends in that group. This way you can help your fellow Scientologists without exposing yourself to further entheta.

Also, if you discover that you have mistakenly added an SP as a friend on FB, you can (before you block them) use “My friends who are friends of [insert SPs name here]” to see who of your friends are connected to that person.

Let’s not validate nor put extra attention on the entheta; why, I’m really not interested to make it more solid!!

Let’s flourish and prosper while keeping on sharing great news!!

 
Let’s unpack that message a little. In Scientology, when someone is “declared” a “suppressive person” or “SP,” they have been labeled an evil outsider and everyone else in the church must completely cut off ties from them, even if it means severing ties with a close family member.

In the first instruction, Scientologists are being told how to find if their friends have unwittingly fallen into an SP group and need rescuing — and with this trick, it can be done without subjecting yourself to the “entheta” of the group itself. Neat and clean!

In the second instruction, you can find out if your friends are connected to known SPs, and help them delete the evil bastards.

And here’s the main thing: Scientologists, despite their claim to superior communication skills and the ability to “confront,” dare not actually read about what it was that motivated Leah Remini to ask hard questions about her church — the vanishing of Shelly Miscavige, for example, or the toxic policy of disconnection. Better to be shielded from that information than actually let it enter their delicate minds!

The latest information we have is that Leah Remini has not yet been declared an SP, but she is considered “not in good standing,” and Scientologists are being told to disconnect from her anyway — and to disconnect from her family members, who have all left the church with her.

We’ve been told by several Scientologists that they were asked to come down to a Los Angeles-area “org” to view a video to help them deal with the “entheta” of Remini’s departure, and this morning, for the first time, we heard from a reliable source inside the church that a “dead agent pack” has now been assembled about Remini. DA Packs are usually assembled by Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs (its intelligence and covert operations wing), and they include negative information about the target in order to poison the subject’s reputation so that the easily-swayed can be convinced it’s better not to trust anything the subject says.

We’re doing our best to get more information about what’s in the video and the DA Pack.

        Awwwww!! I love them both! Thank you πŸ™‚ I think I prefer Sid_Sn’s. I think that extra line would help trigger a Scientologist to maybe consider reading Entheta by using the word Free. Maybe. Ugh why can’t there be a magic word that snaps them out of it? Can we print some “This is NOT the way to Happiness, it’s a Fucking Scam” booklets?

  • monkeyknickers

    And what happens, exactly, should you find some entheta. It melts your face? Systemic organ failure? Your dog dies?

    Scrunchy face.

    What silliness.

    Fine grammarians, too. ElArrrrghAitch would be proud.

    • Sherbet

      Bad grammar notwithstanding, I’m amused by the “heh heh” casual tone of the statement. It translates to: “No, no, no…we’re not interested in making a big deal of SP-related entheta! It’s such a goofy and inconsequential topic, that we’re just going to drop these instructions on you and then chuckle about it. Oh, how silly those SPs are!”

    So, the cult is trying its hardest to turn all its adherents into gutless, bury-your-head-in-the-sand, reality dodgers? WOW! Scientology is such a powerful tool! Or am I thinking of Slappy McPunch again?

  • John P.

    What they say you will become when you join Scientology:

    Helping the able be more able

    The reality of what you become when you join Scientology:

    … obsessed with rules and regulations and can hardly put on their shoes in the morning without instructions from the church.

    Seriously, though, I think a lot of the Hollywood “public” crowd is cynical enough that they’re not going to flock to follow these latest bits of technically sophisticated Internet skillz training from the cult. They may go through the motions but know exactly what’s going on. Man of the “under the radar” or “sideline” crowd are probably wishing they had the financial resources to weather the impact of disconnection on their businesses.

    Hardcore Kool-Aid (almost typed Kook-Aid, which might be better) drinkers in LA and other US locations might be kept in line by the campaign to get rid of SP’s on your Internet accounts. But the cult seems like they are being extremely careful to go through all these gyrations without actually mentioning the name of the person who blew in their communications. Since everybody knows who, exactly, blew at this point, the fact that they can’t name Leah directly has got to be setting up some “enturbulation” in the minds of those with even a trace of a clue.

    I suspect Miscavige, in his usual heavy-handed manner, is having all the orgs, including Kazakhstan, Taiwan, Russia and all sorts of other places who have no idea who Leah Remini is, go along with this pogrom. That ought to make them wonder about whether the US management has lost their minds or not.

    • monkeyknickers

      JP have you watched that interview Miscavige did on Nightline?

      It was awesome humiliating. πŸ™‚

      And btw have you given consideration to the exchange I proposed? Membership benefits for In-n-Out?

      I’ll throw some Plesiosaur shrinky dinks just to sweeten the pot. Tell Supermodel One that they can be somehow fashionably affixed to her person.

      You know what tho?? I have a huge problem with marine reptiles . . . . I don’t GET it.

      I mean – marine iguanas in the Galapagos can’t last longer than an hour or so . . . .

      How were Plesiosaurs even able to keep their body temperatue warm enough, being reptiles and being in the sea 100%?

      This is a genuine mindbender for me. Tho christ it doesn’t take much. πŸ™‚

      Do they tell you that at the museum?
      :))

      • Robert Eckert

        Large creatures inherently have better temperature stability than small ones, because of what is called the square-cube law. If you take a one-inch-long creature and blow it up to a one-foot-long creature, the surface area of the skin multiplies not by 12 but by 12×12 (12 squared or 144), while the volume of the body multiplies by 12x12x12 (12 cubed or 1728). Thus there is much less skin in proportion to the mass of flesh, so heat loss or gain is slower. (There are many other consequences: an elephant has to have massive posts for legs, not little spindly things like a deer’s legs scaled up, which could not hold the weight; the ants in Them could not move at all.)

        • monkeyknickers

          But the Plesiosaurs and other large marine reptiles NEVER went ashore . . . . regardless of the body heat’s staying power, how did they even get started, being born in water and so on.

          • Robert Eckert

            Muscular exertion generates heat. In a very large animal, the problem ceases to be retaining heat and starts to be radiating away the excess heat (elephant’s ears are radiators, for example).

            • RMycroft

              And we sweat, which must make us the stinkiest animals in creation, but we can jog most other animals into the dirt in the long run, assuming a supply of water.

            • Unit G-Xenu’s Other Fist

              I was about to say exactly that πŸ˜‰

        • villagedianne

          I loved Them! Great old film.

        • That’s also why shrews have to eat their weight in insects/small animals every day, they radiate so much more heat/inch^2 than an elephant would just to keep warm. It’s not unusual for shrew researchers to start out by feeding them bugs and the like, and then switch to dog food, which shrews will eat, because of the expense/time factor in rounding up or buying enough bugs to feed their charges.

      • Mark

        There is a theory that many dinosaurs were warm-blooded – and the climate was warmer back in the Jurassic anyway. And what Robert says, too.

        • monkeyknickers

          Actually I JUST read that!

      • Missionary Kid

        There is also the surface to volume rule. As a body gets larger, the surface to volume ratio gets smaller. That means that a larger animal retains more of its heat because it has less surface to reject it in relation to it’s volume. Whales, with their massive size, retain much more of their body heat. On the other hand, elephants (again large animals) have massive ears to reject extra heat. Whales don’t need that strategy because water carries the heat away quite efficiently.

        Edit: Robert Eckert explained it much better than I did.

    • Man of the “under the radar” or “sideline” crowd are probably wishing
      they had the financial resources to weather the impact of disconnection
      on their businesses, like Leah does.

      A good countermeasure would be for Anon or any of the Indy organizations to offer tips on building a business under the radar of their Scientology masters. Proxy servers, the fact that WiFi is now becoming a public utility like running water or electricity, in short, there are technological solutions to being monitored by a cult as paranoid as Scientology under Little Boots and they will become more available as communication technology advances.

      And as people drop off, as some will because they value sanity over finances, the ones remaining will have to take in each others’ washing more and more, maybe they’ll set up a labor exchange to make up for the lack of washing to do.

    • Poison Ivy

      Ah yes. “She who may not be named.”

    • FistOfXenu

      The differences between what they promise and what they deliver could be a book. Like some body mentioned how a Para$citologist can communicate with any body about any thing. These people can’t communicate with any body, about any thing. Even Dinky has to stick to shouting at cult members and doesn’t do interviews and is scared shitless of getting dragged into court and torn to shreds. The rest of them can’t talk to outsiders unless they’re regging, TR-bullshitting, bullying or “handling”. All that money to learn how to communicate and really they just need 2 sentences. “You can communicate with people that are exactly like us” and “You’re forbidden to communicate with people that aren’t exactly like us except to sign them up and take their money” and those 2 sentences could be sold for a buck and you still should get change.

      Disconnection’s just a fancy word for not being able to communicate.

I was delighted (but hardly surprised) to discover that she was even more extensively read on life in the Hermit Kingdom than I am.

      One important difference: Kim Jong-Eun (Nut Boy 3.0) appears to be taller than David Miscavige. Even Kim Jong-Il (Nut Boy 2.0) appeared to have a couple inches on ol’ Demented Midget.

          • Missionary Kid

            I just hope that they don’t discover the real sources, but accuse some innocent clam, driving them out of the cult. I’m hoping that no source, or anyone else, ends up in the Hole.

    • USA MRIID

      I know who the insider is, and I’ll tell Scientology for $20,000 cash.

  • Sherbet

    Why, Tony, I do believe you’ve kicked up your J & D a notch. I approve.

  • iHateDuplicity

    This point of not being allowed to “confront and shatter” the suppression/entheta is one of the biggest dichotomies of the church’s handling of “suppression”. It’s mind-boggling that none of the parishoners themselves twig on tihs.

    On the one hand, you do an entire course (PTS/SP Course) which is sub-titled “How to Confront and Shatter Suppression” and when you have finished it you are fully armed and ready to do battle with any SP you ever meet so you don’t have to “go effect” of their suppression. But then in the real world, when it comes to any ounce of “entheta” presented in the media, you are quite literally barred from even letting a word or phrase of the “entheta” pass before your delicate eyes. How does this make any sense at all?

    I am so glad to see this story is continuing to move forward, now in the mainstream media on CNN. Tony deserves mega-kudos for breaking this story in the first place and my hat is off to him. Keep going! I am dying to find out what is in this video they are showing the LA public. There’s been no word of any such videos or handlings being done at my local org, so perhaps this is being tried out in LA first to see how the sheeple respond. Locally this whole thing has been radio silence.

    • 1subgenius

      How does it make sense that Scientology can achieve anything, but even an OT like Kirstie needs a separate program (first it was Jenny Craig, that really made no sense) to merely lose weight?.

      Oh, yeah, there are no OTs, not one.

      • Studious Judious

          • Studious Judious

            (pause for stunned silence) Wow. Just wow. But it really shouldn’t surprise me at all.

            • Robert Eckert

              It’s ALWAYS worse than you think!

            • FistOfXenu

              It should be their motto except then they’d have to tell the truth:

          • Maybe he thought the menthol in his Kools was medicinal.

          • Observer

            It “runs out” radiation too. Stockpile those Kools for nuclear Armageddon!

          • Douglas D. Douglas

            Also, the chemicals in Xanax or Zoloft, while capable of easing mental distress, are the result of years of development by evil psychs. The chemicals in twelve-year-old-scotch, on the other hand, are the nectar of the gods. And just incidentally ease mental stress.

            • Missionary Kid

              Unfortunately, the results are much more short term for scotch, it can be addicting, and continued use means that the tolerance level goes up.

              I know a guy in college who got a toothache. He couldn’t afford to got to the dentist, so he bought a bottle of booze to ease the pain. It did, but the next morning, he woke up with a hangover and a toothache.

            That’s what Criminon was intended as, but Nation of Islam outdid them by far. CoS now wants a merger with NoI because they are jealous of Farrakhan’s supply of musclebound goons.

            • Marie Claire Wolf

              I’ve wondered about this for a while now and it makes sort of tortuous sense that they shop a merger, although I doubt the dwarf would seriously get in bed with Sheik F.

              Just read it, thanks for the link Robert, but I still have a hard time seeing this gelling if you get my drift. The Co$ messiah was a racist and I would bet money that this cult is mostly directed at white moneyed folks. I may be totally wrong, considering my lot as a wog.

            • Interested

              Have also read it. Knowing the Islamic fanatics way of thinking do you not think they would like to use LRH tech to turn people, who are not radicals, into non thinking robots? They would have more power over the masses. Sheik f would like that. He has seen the power of mind control.

              Yep.

              In the end it is always about money, of which this cult controlled by Devil’s Miscarage has plenty of: read D.M. has managed total personal access to.I am 100% sure he saw to that right off the bat when the old man left his carcasse behind to go to hell, I hope. So I think as Poison Ivy points out Sheik F.’s NOI loves money.Yes.

              Well we’ve heard they target Taiwan now. And you know what LRH said was wrong with China right? “”They smell of all the baths they didn’t take. The trouble with China is, there are too many chinks here.” That’s from Liar Ruin Humbug’s diary, quoted in Jon Atack’s Blue Sky. In Hubbardism MONEY trumps racism. And anyways, what difference does it make what color some body is if you just want to fleece him?

        • Stephanie

          El Wrong Hubbard smoked so the Scientology think is smoking = OTness.

          El Fatty said that “people smoked because somewhere along the whole track people lived next to Volcanoes.

          Even on the Purif – one does not try to quit smoking – L Ron says – the Purif deals with ridding the body of “toxins” that effect the Mind.

          Try taking cigarettes from a smoker and see what happens to their mind…not to mention the toxins!!

          LRH was such a racist douche bag. and so physically repulsive, at least from the few pictures I know of, that he could sell this incredible tall tale and make a fortune at it, is beyond me.
          He was followed by one of his nurtured entourage, and this diminutive sociopath new boss is truly worthy of the throne, whatever and with due respect R. & R. say. As to the Co$, it is breathtaking in its perverse greed and deep seated paranoias and run for the benefit of the capo di tutti capi’s ego. Tragically it hurts, deforms, defraud, dehumanize, and yes, even kill people. I am sort of overwhelmed with the magnitude of it all and the vast oceans of pain it has created for its own need.
          All of you escapees are to be celebrated for surviving this ordeal.

  • scnethics

    Dear Scientologist,

    You may have run into some entheta recently. Bad news like this can seem like it is part of reality, and you may experience a flicker of a thought that you should face that reality. It IS possible to fully maintain your scientology world-view while also living in the “real” world, but you must do a better job of avoiding the parts of the real world that make your scientology world-view seem like it might be a fantasy. Good luck with that!

  • Synthia Fagen

    The instruction to use the new FB graph (they love graphs) and type: β€œMy friends who are in [insert SP group here]” gives Scientologists permission, without doing anything wrong because they were told to do it by the church, to go seek out every SP group they can find. Brilliant, as usual. I am very sure people are curious about Leah. Now they can find out with approval from the church. This is a fuck up of magnitude.

  • Jim Little

    What really got me when I was declared a suppressive person almost 3 years ago is this, what is the purpose of the communication courses, and PTS/SP course if in the end you are not allowed to make your own decisions on who you want to speak with and who you want to distance yourself from?

    Of course we all know the real reason for the SP declares is to keep the corruption and lies buried.

    The true bridge to total freedom will always lead to being declared a suppressive person. Because if you are truly honest with yourself and dig all the way to the bottom of the rabbit hole and question EVERYTHING you will see it was all a load of horseshit.

    • Marta

      As “ma daddy” used to say (said as if sneezing): Ha-ha-ha-hooorrrshit!

    • Doug Parent

      Hubbard cancelled Disconnection (supposedly) in 1968 saying something on the order of – “since we now have attained significant technical developments we can now all handle all types of cases. Therefore disconnection as a condition is hereby cancelled”. What Miscavige has essentially accomplished is an invalidation of what Hubbard wrote and the technical advances he was referring to. Power Processing has been discussed as a workable tool to handle people who are dramatizing being SP’s. Miscavige has been making Hubbard look like fool for quite awhile now. And this “GAT II” nonsense has got to be just incomprehensible to any old timers that are left who trained old school Scn’ers.

      • FistOfXenu

        “Miscavige has been making Hubbard look like fool for quite awhile now”

        Really? I thought Hubbard did a great job of that all by himself. But Dinky’s done a fantastic job of making himself and any body that goes public to support him look like complete idiots.

        • Doug Parent

          Oh hell MisManage actually goes AFTER people who quote Hubbard directly inside the organization. It’s MisVicious way or the highway.

      • Phil McKraken

        I ask in all seriousness, why resort to Hubbard’s words when you have his actions to show you his intent? Disconnection never ceased. That was Hubbard’s policy.

        • Doug Parent

          It was probably curtailed for awhile. ( I was not around in the 60’s but heard it was out of vogue for awhile) It was not officially brought back into use until 1983, in a policy that had Hubbards name on it. *wink wink*.

          • Robert Eckert

            No, no, if you read what Hubbard wrote at the time, it was really just that you weren’t supposed to call it “disconnection” anymore because it was bad PR that was getting them into trouble with their legal cases in Australia and New Zealand.

            • Doug Parent

              I understand what you are referring to and that has to do with the term “fair game”.

            • Robert Eckert

              That was “cancelled” in the same kind of way.

            • Doug Parent

              β€œSince we can now handle all types of cases disconnection as a condition is cancelled.” L. Ron Hubbard

            • Doug Parent

              No where did he write that the use of the term disconnection was forbidden. Fair Game, yes. HCOB Nov 15 1968.

            • Robert Eckert

              From an insider’s post, back when Tony was still at Village Voice:

              “Hubbard was getting a lot of PR flack over disconnection, so he wrote a policy which would help PR a lot without changing anything significant. I’m sure it was meant to be misunderstood by outsiders.

              The policy did NOT cancel disconnection, rather it said that ‘disconnection as a condition’ was cancelled. Now, one might well ask, WTF is ‘disconnection as a condition’?

              If you dig through some ancient ethics folders, you would find that they would often explicitly state that the subject of the ethics order was to disconnect from one or more other parties who would be named in the ethics order, and that reinstatement to good standing would not happen until that had been done. THAT was disconnection as a condition.

              So we stopped naming names of people to be disconnected from in ethics orders. Instead, Type A PTS would be told that they had to handle or disconnect, and if handling was impossible, well, too bad! And people still had to disconnect from SPs.”

            • Doug Parent

              We may be splitting hairs here, but this is something that I just found which appears to cover this subject quite well.

          Nope. Not hard at all. All you really have to do is compare what he DID with what he actually SAID and it instantly begins to unravel all of his insane bullcrap.

          Reminds me of the story of him at the Explorer’s Club and one of the members counting up all the years Hubtard said he had spent travelling around the world. He would have had to have been 89 or something I believe by the time he had done everything he alleged. When confronted with this, he got the shits and stomped off in a lil’ huff to have a tantrum and make up some new bullshit to fleece people.

          • Nerf Chandelier

            He used the New York Explorer’s Club as the mailing address for people trying to collect debt from him, including the US Navy. He claimed he was an honorary lifetime member of the club, which of course was not the case.

          • Lady Squash

            Well, you’ve nailed it Unit. Love it.

      • John P.

        Perhaps someone who was “in” for a long time could comment on this.

        It sounds to me like Hubbard was playing another one of his little word games. As I recall, “conditions” in Scientology have funny names like “treason,” “liability,” “non-existence,” and so forth. So when he talks about “disconnection as a condition,” could he be talking about a time when “disconnection” existed on this list? But he’s giving up one meaning of the term to hide the fact that “disconnection” as a process to handle people the cult doesn’t like is not being given up at all. Just the meaning he didn’t care about.

        If that is accurate, it means that Hubbard had every intention of continuing to use disconnection as a punishment mechanism for bitter, defrocked apostates. And that means, incidentally, that it goes right back to the start, as many here have said; disconnection is not a policy banned by Mankind’s Greatest Friend(tm) which was restored when the usurper David Miscavige stole the throne.

        • Doug Parent

          Ok I’ll bite having been in for *awhile*. “Ethics Conditions” never had “disconnection” contained in them. The link in my posting above contains a discussion on this very topic should you have the time or interest. Hubbard had completed some research around 1968 that gave him cause to change his stance on the subject. Anti-Hubbardites will groan in disagreement, form your own opinion. http://standardtech.wordpress.com/out-tech/disconnection-as-a-condition/

        • Lurkness

          Mankind’s Greatest Friend(tm), Hubbard, in his own words on the $cientology Reform Code of Nov 1968.

          Among other things, “Sec checks are cancelled and all old folders on this have been burned” !!! ROFL. STOP!

          Continuing, he Hub-blubbers on that: “Disconnection is cancelled as a re… relief to those suffering from family oppression. It’s no longer REQUIRED IN THE SP ORDERS and the person has to handle.”

          There are the weasel words.

          It’s a short clip. He goes on to say too that the “fair game law was cancelled”…. WUT???

          {How could *command intention* go so off the rails on all this?}

            • GlibWog

              Sure.. What the hell.. Just post it darlin.. I just can’t give out my Email.. I am in ” Hiding”

              sigh

            • Missionary Kid

              There are ways around that, but this is for public consumption anyway.

              Here are 3 perspectives I’ve developed on Scientology: The psychological make-up of the CEO, The structure of the organization, and The product itself.

              The psychological make-up of the CEO
              David Miscavage has been in Scientology since a young age. All of his education has been within Scientology, and he doesn’t have a high school diploma. He doesn’t have the reputation of an autodidact. He has never spent any of his adult life outside of Scientology, and has had little intellectual exposure to it.

              He came up through the organization by means of chance, hard work and Machiavellian maneuvers. He got to see the machinations of LRH up close, and took advantage of his job in the sea org as LRH hid from the feds to position himself to launch a takeover after LRH died.

              DM’s management style is colored by his rise. He is very aware of anyone who might be a threat to his leadership and makes it a point to dispose of or humiliate them if he feels that they might impinge on his power. He is paranoid about it. As a consequence, he has decimated the organization of any person who might have CEO management capabilities.

              Since he runs the corporation by fear and intimidation, I think that senior management takes few chances or challenges him on ideas he may have, because they could be banished from power at a whim. Anything they do can run afoul of his temper. I suspect that his outbursts are a result of his emotional rather than rational state. His physical attacks on underlings are a measure of his extremely emotional state, and are also unconsciously calculated to intimidate everyone else in the organization.

              At this point, I think he identifies quite strongly with the church to the point that anything that is in opposition to the church, he takes as a personal attack against him. On the other hand, he doesn’t have much regard for it as an institution, since he only sees it in personal terms. Someone leaving is not just leaving, they are abandoning him in his mind.

              I think he also has some anger towards the Co$ because he didn’t create it, he just executed a coup to get it. As a consequence, all that he wants to do is to keep it working for him. His goal seems to be to make money, and not to grow the organization. The slogan Keep Scientolgy Working epitomizes his outlook. There is no mention of expansion, except in their own publications and publicity.

              In short, DM is a thug.

              The structure of the organization.
              Scientology is set up ostensibly with a watchdog committee overseeing everything,
              and the Chairman of the Board running the day to day operations through the heads of different divisions, like a regular corporation. In reality, David Miscavage runs it as his own fief and it has been in chaos since he took over. When Shelly took it upon herself to fill some positions, he exploded. By constantly keeping things in flux, he keeps staff uncertain of their position and under his control because he keeps everything in flux.

              The business education of the executives is supposedly based on the writings of LRH, but in reality, each has been moved into a job and learned it by mostly on-the-job training. Since each serves at the whim of the COB, they spend their time trying to please him, instead of doing their job of running the department in the most efficient, cost effective way.

              To keep everyone in Scientology in line, there is a whole system of reporting on people, as well a self-reporting that is encouraged with the use of the e-meter. By the use of the extensive files on every person, the sec checks, and the writing up of Knowledge Reports, people are basically under a soviet style security system. The OSA, IMO, is the Scientology equivalent of the KGB. In a basically free society, it’s
              amazing that Scientology has been able to function in this way.

              The Product of Scientology.
              The biggest problem is with the product. It was created out of whole cloth in the imagination of LRH. It contains many provably false concepts. It’s therapy is based on methods that have largely been discarded, using what is basically an ohmmeter that measures galvanic skin response, to supposedly detect the truth of a person’s reaction.

              The reason it succeeds as much as it has is that the whole system it operates under is devoted to controlling the people inside of it. Unfortunately for Scientology, the general perception of it in the public eye has shifted from curiosity to disdain.

              If the whales desert Scientology, and Narconon starts losing money, it is done for, because without them, the burden of keeping it afloat will all fall on the adherents, who are already overtaxed.

              I hope the failure comes soon.

            • GlibWog

            • Missionary Kid

              Thanks. A lot of what I see in DM is what I saw in a CEO that I worked for who inherited a multimillion dollar company that had no budget because he didn’t want people to know how much he was making.

              His father, the founder, was a periodic alcoholic who never let that get in the way of business. He went through a series of marriages, but kept the son with him. As a consequence, my CEO boss had the characteristics of an adult child of an alcoholic. He wasn’t a bully like DM, but appearances were very important to him.

              He also had no real business education, and at times, it showed because his decisions were based on emotion. It was his toy, and that’s how he treated the business.

              One could get a project through by putting one’s pitch in the form of “for the betterment of XXX corporation and the enhancement of its reputation.” He saw that as his betterment and his reputation, yet, at the same time, he screwed up the company.

              Really fine analysis, Mish. We need to start a special intelligence and black ops division of the Bunker, called OSPA, Office of SP Affairs, and put you in as chief analyst. I know what you say is true because I observed it. My abilities in the real of entertainment and promotion were wanted by the church, but I could tell that Iwas also feared and suspected by people in certain positions who feared real ability. So they kept recruiting me to put me under control….very creepy. When I was “backstage” among CC staff, I began to observe the cruelty and intimidation tactics that the church runs on…it shocked me, because of all the public image they project as being the most sane and competent organization there is….. simply not true. And then you find out how Ron ran the ships he was on, and you see where all the thuggery and blackmail came from.

            • Missionary Kid

              Thanks, but no thanks. I know my limitations, and those are that when I get directly involved with something, that my powers of observation go to hell.

              My opinion is also that we don’t need to indulge in black ops. Those are $cientology’s traditional tactics, and they are an evil that we don’t want to get involved in, IMO. Don’t forget, we are the ones wearing the white hats, and we don’t want to engage in the same type of tactics that include lies and intimidation.

              We do need to keep everyone informed, and to speak up whenever Co$ starts any of its nefarious tactics. Co$ is like a cockroach that scurries for a hidey-hole when strong light is shined on it. Let’s make that light the sun.

              Fortunately for us, $cientology hasn’t learned to change its tactics. They keep repeating the same lies that worked for them in the past, but that was when they still had some credibility. They have gone from being an odd religion to one that is hostile in the public awareness. All we have to do is to keep all of their activities publicized.

              The internet, especially with the spread of videos of Co$ activities, is our ally.

              If the feds decide that he’s been running Co$ as a personal enrichment scheme (which would, in turn remove any church tax exemptions and make him and the church liable for past taxes), he’ll head for a hidey hole offshore. The church assets would be seized.

              What I’d like to see is a RICO indictment, along with charges of conspiracy to commit felonies.

              Who knows if or when the feds will wake up.

            • John P.

              This is a very solid and clear analysis. You should update this and post it every once in a while as a “guide to the cult.” Sorry I didn’t comment on your post earlier, but I saved the e-mail with your comment and lost it in one of my inboxes.

              Your analysis of DM is right on. It doesn’t matter what his specific diagnosis is; he’s bonkers, and he’s a powder keg of temper. His incompetence (high school education, and work experience only in Scientology) has scarcely prepared him to evolve the organization in any coherent manner to deal with challenges that didn’t exist when Hubbard was alive or when he took power (Internet, the fall of Tom Cruise, obsolete products, etc.).

              Regarding the organization, I would add that the organization is “stat” driven. Everything is supposed to be quantified then analyzed. However, the cult is stuck using Hubbard’s poorly conceived metrics. Because people are browbeaten and constantly in fear of management, they tend to invent statistics that allow them to avoid punishment, rather than furthering the goals of the organization. Many Scientologists report getting called 50-60 times a day by different people inviting them to some stupid event. Each call counts as a “stat” for the person making the call. The stat is “calls dialed” not “people that actually showed up to the event.” The latter stat would be far more useful to the organization, and it would probably piss customers off. Scientology’s inability to pick useful stats and its insistence that something is wrong if the stats don’t go up every single week times 52 weeks per year times forever (and the ruthless attempts to find someone to punish when that doesn’t happen) cause the organization to be utterly paralyzed.

              Regarding the product: you’re exactly right. The “product” is invented by one guy (who had dubious mental stability and certainly was on thin ice for competence in the fields he claimed to be expert in), and the “scripture” says that it can’t be changed because of Hubbard’s brilliance. Thus, it has no ability to adapt to the future or to customer perceptions. Thus, the cult can do nothing to fix the fact that it is more a laughingstock than an oddity.

              Finally, I’d suggest that in future versions, you pull out the control and punishment aspects from the organization and product section, and make it a fourth major section. I’d argue that the control/punishment mechanisms are a key part of what has kept the cult lurching along as far as it has. The only reason people would believe such gobbledygook as the Xenu space opera and that some of the particular auditing routines will help them is because there is an extensive punishment-oriented organization that keeps them in line. People quickly learn “thought stopping,” banishing thoughts that indicate doubt or disloyalty from their own minds; they voluntarily brainwash themselves and don’t need to be physically tortured into it. The entire organization is punishment-obsessed to a really perverted degree.

            • Missionary Kid

              Thanks for the feedback. I’ll be rewriting it tonight. You’ve given me some more ideas to expand on, and I came up with some more to add.

              BTW, here’s a blog you might be interested in. I look at this as a commentary on China’s takeover of general aviation manufacturers. At first, it may seem jingoistic, but I happen to think it is a cautionary tale.
              http://flycorvair.net/2013/07/23/communist-chinese-government-at-oshkosh/
              and here’s the comments as a follow-up
              http://flycorvair.net/2013/07/24/mailsack-72413/

            • John P.

              The flycorvair article is extremely jingoistic and narrow minded. And, of course, it is
              also very simplistic in its assessment of the reality of the situation. The author’s frequent use of “Communist” in conjunction with China is a tipoff that this is your typical red-meat kneejerk “buy American” view. Though the Communist Party still runs the country, they are Communists in name only, and they are hardly trying to nuke their biggest trading partner, the way the Soviets may have been trying to shut us down militarily in the Cold War.

              On the one hand, I am concerned about shipping highly skilled US jobs overseas — jobs like aerospace workers. I believe the economic recovery, which has been fairly slow the last couple years, would accelerate greatly if workers got raises instead of companies optimizing corporate profits. We in Global Capitalism HQ know that companies have optimized profits about as far as they can go and profit margins (the most important factor in stock prices) have little room to go anywhere but down. When workers have more money to spend, companies throughout the economy grow. When rich people have more money to spend, they don’t actually spend it. One rich person making $1 million per year doesn’t buy ten times as many cars as ten families each making $100,000 per year. Or ten times as much toothpaste, toilet paper, laundry detergent, or anything else.

              Since Continental’s business of replacement parts is essentially a service, distribution and inventory management business, you can’t actually outsource huge chunks of it. I don’t know how many jobs have gone overseas as a result of the Chinese acquisition of these companies, but I would bet serious coin that it is far less than most people would expect.

              On the other hand, from the strategic and investment point of view, Continental and the rest of the companies mentioned are past their prime. I don’t remember the numbers on production of piston-engined GA aircraft recently, but it’s got to be pretty low at this point, even before the recession. The aerospace makers are cashing in on turboprops and jets of all sizes; the Chinese haven’t bought these businesses. I suspect that the overwhelming majority of Continental’s business these days is furnishing replacement parts for 30-year-old (or older) motors in existing hulls. And Cirrus (have loved their planes since their kitplane days 30 years ago) has been in out of bankruptcy more times than Elizabeth Taylor has been married. Without disrespect to the fabled history of these businesses, they are almost certainly never going to see growth again like they did in their best years.

              I happen to believe that the stage is set for a number of interesting developments in general aviation over the next decade, as composites technologies get better and cheaper, and as a new wave of modern engines are developed (most piston engines in production today are variants of designs laid down 50+ years ago), potentially including very small turboprop engines that will be far more reliable than piston engines they replace. The Chinese ownership of those businesses named in the blog post will not give them any competitive edge to play in those new markets as they emerge.

              Read about Joseph Schumpeter’s classic concept of “creative destruction.” The idea has been around since the 1940s. Some use this to justify “screw the poor” economics like the current GOP platform; I don’t agree with that, and I don’t think that was Schumpeter’s intent. But the overall concept does describe the concept of industries’ tendency to be born, grow, mature, die and be replaced by newer technologies and business models that tend to increase the net wealth of the economy that efficiently buries old technologies (including by selling them off to low-cost producer countries) and enables formation of replacement industries in their place.

              Failing to upgrade industrial production for decades during the Cold War (i.e., little creative destruction to take place) meant that Russia emerged into the post-Cold War era with very few valuable exports other than raw materials (which are the lowest-value exports in the food chain). The US is a lot wealthier in many different ways because commercial aviation buried the passenger railroad industry (and the freight railroad industry is moving more tonnage than ever, so getting them out of the passenger business helped them focus on what they do extremely well, though that took a while to happen).

          Hey Bury, do you line up a bunch of icon photos at the beginning of each week and then have at it? I’m falling behind the curve as I cannot guess the last three…sigh.

          Is it a subconscious, “I’m feeling like this today?” Maybe it’s the frame of the headshot that grabs you. I think I could write a doctoral thesis on BTN’s icons. Then, you could be declared a Saint, your icons could be placed strategically throughout the icon-adoring world, and you could live off the glow of adulation. Nah, who am I kidding?!

              +100 points for referencing the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence! My wife is from San Fransisco and told me about them a few years back, sent me to their website etc. Given that just to become a Sister, you have to go through Novice and Postulant status, what on earth did you have to do to get Sainted?
              Oh, and also they apparently made (maybe still make, I don’t know) the best track cream ever, which they used to distribute to all the needle exchange sites. My wife is a harm reduction worker now and was trying to get the recipe so she could get the agencies here to make up some batches…I don’t think she ever did figure out what-all went into it. Must be a closely guarded secret πŸ™‚

            • ThetaBara

              Well, you have to perform miracles, of course! Or just volunteer a lot without joining. (I can’t stand greasepaint on me so I’m not tough enough to be a real Sister.) The Saints are sort of an auxiliary. But I got a lovely certificate in a gilt frame!
              I have not heard that about the “track cream” but I have a friend who does needle exchange and I will look into it. How long ago was this? Does she remember any of the Sisters’ names? I can also check with long-time Sisters. Bless her for doing harm reduction. It sounds like it would be really tough in many ways.

        • coonellie

    • Exterrier

      That is how it happened for me, Jim, and I don’t see why that is not true for everyone, except humans have so many herd instinct qualities that overwhelm the intellect and even conscience. DM insisted that the PTSSP course with golden age tech had to be done….they put me on it, and one day while I was out harrassing scared illegal immigrants on Vermont Avenue with my clipboard on a “tone scale drill”, I Ep’d, by realizing that I was in fact PTS…….. to Miscavage and to Scientology itself, for making me do stupid and annoying things like that, and rote memorization and mindless repetitive drills that were making me feel less of person that I actually am, which is way more of a person that DM is. It came in a flash to me, and I walked off the course and out of the cult, and that was that. Slam Dunk. Helped that I did not have family trapped in the cult.
      But instantly, I skipped all the bullshit and crossed the Bridge to Total Freedom by walking out the door, and up to full abilities as human. No, not Homo Novice, but Homo Sapiens, and not a novice at all.

  • Obnosis

    Tony,

    Has anyone told about the B.S that is “not in good standing”? It used to be that you were officially in good standing until you were officially declared. “Not in good standing” meant declared. If someone was not declared, you could communicate with them, period. Now they are calling someone “not in good standing” who is not yet declared, but treating them exactly like someone who is declared and saying to disconnect from them. Another example of not following LRH Policies. Now they’ll disconnect from someone without declaring them. So full of B.S. they’re a frakking laughingstock.

      Very true..and this is good for us. Here’s a live example that happened, recently. A couple (Scientologists still members) were reading Marty’s blog. They mentioned this to ONE person. Within hours that person had reported them to “ethics”. Within that day, they told me ALLLLLLLLLLL of their “friends” had removed themselves from their FB account. (The couple were people “in good standings”). That seemed *so* odd to them that they both said: “Why don’t we just leave?” They left, joined many friends who had also left, and are quite happy outside the mafia-like organization pretending to be a “church”.

      Well, “not in good standing” is really not the same as “declared”. You can be denied auditing until your past auditing debts are paid off, or until your bounced check is covered. You can ask to be off the mailing list and be “deadfiled” which is pretty much “not in good standing”. Even better, you can ask to be off the mailing list or you’re going to refer the matter to your solicitor, and really be not in good standing. You can be found to be a newspaper reporter, or have worked in a high security section of the government, or have spent time as a psychiatric nurse, or commit criminal acts while on-lines and then be labeled “not in good standing”. Those are all “PTS” declares.

        OSA has very successfully handled other internet hates sites and OSA will handle FB.

        One more thing: Ortega is correct. OSA does want all Church members to check in first thing in the morning before they put on their shoes.

        We want OSA to sec check them to ensure they had no evil criminal dreams about COB RTC David Miscavige. If they did have a “hater dream” about COB then OSA will arrest them in it’s morning round up of SP’s!

              Can Scientology help me understand the infield fly rule?

            • OTVIIIisGrrr8!

              The infield fly rule is very easy to understand. You must have went past a word you did not understand. We in RTC suggest you word clear the comment on Rule 2.00 in the 2013 MLB rulebook:

              “Rule 2.00 (Infield Fly) Comment: On the infield fly rule the umpire is to rule whether the
              ball could ordinarily have been handled by an infielderβ€”not by some arbitrary limitation such as the grass, or the base lines. The umpire must rule also that a ball is an infield fly, even if handled by an outfielder, if, in the umpire’s judgment, the ball could have been as easily handled by an infielder. The infield fly is in no sense to be considered an appeal play. The umpire’s judgment must govern, and the decision should be made immediately.”

            • Mark

              “Must have went“?! BEEN; GONE, oh mighty Mekon.
              I use insecticide on any infield flies I spot.

            • 1subgenius

              Sure, I get that (I carry the rules with me at all times), and of course it only applies “…when first and second, or first, second and third bases are occupied, before two are out….”.,and that “If the ball is near the baselines,the umpire shall declare β€œInfield Fly, if Fair.”

              But since “The ball is alive and runners may advance at the risk of the ball being caught, or retouch and advance after the ball is touched, the same as on any fly ball. If the hit becomes a foul ball, it is treated the same as any foul.If a declared Infield Fly is allowed to fall untouched to the ground, and bounces foul before passing first or third base, it is a foul ball. If a declared Infield Fly falls untouched to the ground outside the baseline, and bounces fair before passing first or third base, it is an Infield Fly.”, my question is twofold:

              1) Is that the only difference there is with a regular fly ball?
              2) Are all umpires Scientologists, because you’d have to have super powers to understand this?

            • RMycroft

              I like the part where, on full bases, the batter can run past the the runner holding at first, be called out, but prevent a force-out double or triple.

            • OTVIIIisGrrr8!

              1subgenius, it is evident that, “A case that mustn’t touch anything will sit there figure-figure-figure-figure, think-think-think-think, figure-figure-figure-figure, think-think-think-think. Now, this is the manifestation directly below effort. When they get into thinking, you must assume that they can’t touch. If they’re in a figure-figure condition, you must assume that this individual is afraid to touch things. If he’s afraid to touch things, naturally he’s going to think that they have to all be done by ideas. Well, that’s below making a postulate and making something happen.”

              And that’s all there is to understanding the infield fly rule.

              I was at a baseball game this evening, and there were men at second and third with one out. The ball was hit near the baseline, but the umpire did not declare, “Infield fly, if fair.”, only “Infield fly.”

              The ball bounced in foul territory, and I wanted to go home to eat, so I made it bounce back fair, and made the the base runner interfere with the second baseman, by having him ask, “Could you explain the infield fly rule to me?” (Offensive interference is an act by the team at bat which interferes with… or confuses any fielder attempting to make a play.” Rule 2.00) The second baseman was thoroughly confused. The ball then bounced back foul, and the umpire declared the play dead, but before he.did the runner stole home.

              Both benches spilled onto the field, and as far as I know, they are still arguing the call, but I got to go home. .

      • sugarplumfairy

        That’d be cool with me.. I hate FB.. If I wanted to stay in touch with and follow the lives and times of every human I’ve met since grade school, I’d have kept in touch with and followed the lives and times of every human I’ve met since grade school..

        • 1subgenius

          I’m not on it either.
          Isn’t that the place where people who you’ve been avoiding for 20 years go to find you?

          • sugarplumfairy

            Yah, thats the place.. I’m embarrassed to say I succumbed to peer pressure and I have a page.. But I haven’t been on it since 2009.. It gives me colitis.. I tried to delete it, but to do that takes an act of congress..

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              I hate it too. But yeah, I have a page. It was the only way I could be in touch with a few family members. Phone calls were OUT, and then even email. Jeesh. And every time I even Try to figure out the controls, FB changes everything. It’s beginning to feel like another cult to me.

            • noseinabk

              Don,t be embarrassed spf. I am one of the biggest haters of FB and have a FB.. I got sucked in by a friend who posted a dog show win and it was the only place to see and support her. After my first post my mother ( who travels) and kids expressed shock that I would post. I just shut off the news feeds that are not family and pretend I don’t notice friend request. πŸ™‚ Also I pretend that I only get my messages via email so my kids know not to rely on FB to contact me.

        • Douglas D. Douglas

          You guys remind me of those folks forty to fifty years ago who dismissed television: “All our friends have one, but we just don’t see the need. It’s so… vulgar.”

          Facebook is just another tool for communicating in our increasingly disconnected world. I have had exactly two people from my past that I never wanted to see or hear from again try to contact me, and I treated them exactly the same way I did all those years ago. Conversely, it has been interesting to catch up with, and the blithely say buh-bye to so many others I have known through the years. And they have caught up with, and said buh-bye to me.

          No sweat.

          • Sandy

            No, DDD. I got rid of my page when the guy who tried to date rape me in college contacted me. If I want to be contacted, I am probably already in touch.

          • sugarplumfairy

            Maybe you’re right..but i’m fully growed now and I don’t have to do what I don’t want to do anymore.. Unless I’m being paid a fair wage.. And I don’t want to interact with a thousand people who know my mom and will call her to check up on me if I don’t return their message.. Life is too short to spend it talking to people online.. Hey, wait……

          • Captain Howdy

            The world is disconnected because of technology, it turns people into zonbies. A handful of corporations control all the the media, the arts and what passes for popular culture these days. What happen to rock’n’roll? It’s been replaced by no talent moop thugs who can’t play an instrument and can’t write a lyrics above the 4th grade. There is no more rebellion. They’ve won. It’s “Tittytainment” from here on out. Detroit has gone bankrupt and the corporations are going to run the city. Didn’t they make a movie about that 20 years ago?

              Rock snob..

            • Captain Howdy

              Music use to be a group of people who actually played instruments, wrote their own songs and weren’t afraid to write politically rebellious songs that attacked the status quo. Now popular music is some diva singer with a bunch of idiot dancers behind them singing meaningless songs about love and sex they didn’t even write and no one gives a fuck who the musicians in the back ground are. It’s sick and it’s plastic.

          You’re so right!

      • Stephanie

        I banned it when the FB police told me to disconnect from a newly Declared SP. First I disconnected from every Scientologist I knew. Then I disengaged it.

        I will not allow Scientology to tell me who I can talk to and who I can’t.

        I sent the FB Cop a message and told me I would be contacting the SP and get their side of the story and decide for myself if I will disconnect with them. If they decided to leave Scientology – I would never disconnect.

        I told them to read the Creed of a Scientologist and clay demo it after word clearing “alienable rights to speak freely, practice any religion freely and no power except GOD has the right to deny these rights overtly or covertly” or whatever the Creed says – I read it the FB cop!

        They said they understood and are not trying to tell me what to do but that the SP has done some horrible things. I called the SP and asked what happened. The SP told me they went in to inform the Church they no longer wished to be in Scientology after witnessing mis-applied tech that reeks of criminal behavior and no damage is made up by Scientology or Scientologists – cramming orders are not making up damage. They could not support this group because it is unethical and all crimes are swept under the carpet.

        I called the FB Cop back and told them I won’t be disconnecting – I would be joining them and have no further interest in Scientology. I told her to never call me again! It is disgusting to tell people who they can talk to. What is this – a regime? A North Korea Dictatorship. Think about it!! Or don’t – I really don’t care!

        Your policing my FB page was just the shove I needed. Thanks for your HELP…it was most effective.

        I was not declared but they stopped calling me and I receive no more mail.

        • Douglas D. Douglas

      Tee hee…
      Yes, OTVIII, SP’s ‘r’ US has been accused of hate speech, by numerous scilons. FB is not buying that. Criticism and truth is not “hate speech”. That is never going to get us taken down, In fact, our growth is straight up and vertical this past week! Are you in RTC jealous? You should be, as many of our newest members are scientologists in good standing, desperately needing to go Clear on the abuses and outrages of the COS and its COB. All that was needed was to invite them to join, and they all joined up! Of course, some turned out to be wafflers, who just wanted to leave as soon as they read some our posts. What’s up with that? Are all good scientologists so wishy-washy, and inept at handling FB?

      Let it be known, all this explosive growth is purely thanks to the stellar leadership of the head of our little group! I know how this enturbulates David — he is so resentful of Pete’s mastery of the MEST of the internet. Please tell David not to feel bad, he’s still my super-SP. Just remember, you in the RTC are welcome to join our rapidly expanding organization anytime…

I never thought much of that “hide from bad news” nonsense. Always struck me as total non-confront.

        • Unit G-Xenu’s Other Fist

          We’re coming out of the woodworks for sure! Must be all the entheta shining upon the “Church” of Scamotology πŸ˜€ and the more of us that come out, the more those still in are going to start wondering why we do what we do, and why those of us opposed to the way the place is operating under Miscavige. Here is where I say that I really don’t begrudge anyone the right to want to believe what they want. Go nuts. I consider myself a Jedi πŸ˜‰ have done since the year that we were encouraged to put it on our Census forms here in Australia. Just don’t cram it down others’ throats. Have the same respect for my choice that I have for yours. Then they might read something, then talk to someone else, etc, etc………….. And the whole house of cards collapses.

          My popcorn stocks are going way up since yesterday afternoon πŸ˜€

              Yes indeed Glib. And, in that vein, I shall quote Jason Beghe, and “Show me a MOTHERFUCKEN’ CLEAR!”

  • Truthiwant

    My daughter was in the Sea Org for a year.

    This is a difficult subject for me to talk about and I don’t really want to get in to it but I’ll just say one small thing.

    She had been in the Sea Org for three days and we had to go to London to get a passport renewal, so I accompanied her. On the way to London, we stopped to have a bite to eat in some place where the television happened to be turned on.

    My daughter said to me “I can’t watch the television. It’s not allowed. We must sit somewhere else.”

    Do you get it? After just THREE days in the fucking Sea Org, this poor girl was like a robot!

    I don’t want to go in to this.

    • 1subgenius

      Understood, and thanks for sharing what you could.

    • ThetaBara

      How awful. I’m so glad to hear she’s no longer in the sea org.

    $cientologists have 2 methods of dealing with bad news.

    1. Stick fingers in ears and loudly scream ‘naaaahhhhh, naaaaaaahhhhh, naaaaaaahhhh.

    2. stick head in sand and bury it.

    Ooh I sincerely hope they do a Freedumb Magazine article about Leah Rimini – those Freedumb Mags are the best wake-up-and-smell-the-fucking-roses-you-are-in-a-cult footbullets ever invented. I absolutely cannot believe the web-site is still up.
    It’s hilarious. I struggle to picture the stupidity of the mind that conceived of the idea of the Freedumb Mag articles over the last few years. I mean, to not understand the impact of such garbage, produced by a supposed church. You’d almost have to be a violent sociopath without an education. Oh, hang on…

      • I know right? I swear to God I end up in tears sometimes from laughing so hard at his antics. That bit where he posted a link to the ex-Scn forum and the resulting confused and braindead reactions (I think this site is messed up on my computer) was the best – “a theta site filled with only theta threads” indeed!

    It’s not that Scientology rejects “ENTHETA”.

    It’s not that Scientology doesn’t want to allow “ENTHETA” on its lines.

    Scientology, in fact, embraces “ENTHETA”, but only selectively. They actually want Scientologists to put “ENTHETA” on other Scientologists’ lines. They encourage it.

    As a Scientologist, you are ordered to have “ENTHETA” and bring it into the org–as long as you are paying them by the hour to handle it. It’s called auditing.

It is now imperative that the Remini clan girds its loins prepare to defend themselves. Shit rockets are gonna fly, they will lob the worst they can gather for the blackening of Leah’s name. Obviously time will come for speaking out. All hope lies with the lawsuits and the Reminis’ response.

          There’s been entire sects created over the parsing of the Greek run-together letters of the earliest texts of the New Testament, if you want to get into fights over trivia.

            The fight between the Homoousians (nowadays considered the true orthodox right believers) and the Homoiousians (those diabolical heretical squirrels) was about whether the nature of Jesus is “same as” or “similar to” God the Father.

    The only good news, is Great news. If that’s the only news you get it’s a Win.

    It really must be awful to live in a world so toxic that simply reading what anyone has to say will harm you. $cientology pours so much confusion into a persons life. They should have stole hubbard’s treasure map, overboarded his sorry ass the first day out to sea and went treasure hunting without him.

    I’m inviting everyone to make a donation to the Bunker today. I’m disabled, but feel fortunate to have an income (albeit, only $915 a month). Approaching the end of July I found a few dollars left in my account, and before I spent the rest of it I sent $25 to this effort for the first time. This heroic project can’t be cheap to maintain, so let’s all do what we can. Today. Now.

        • sister wendy

          they don’t experience themselves as trapped. They aren’t searching (usually) for ways to get out and get information- they are trying to avoid something that will block their progress on the bridge

          • Unit G-Xenu’s Other Fist

            Sorry should have been a bit clearer sis, I meant that if someone wanting to get information out but not be tracked, that would be the way to do it. That way it can’t be traced back to a personal computer on Scientology’s networks, and can be used anywhere you get phone reception πŸ˜‰ therefore making it a mobile upload station for all those dox they don’t want seen and communicating them to people like Tony and the guys in Anonymous

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      They Still have a net nanny device??! I just Have to ask: What did she Think of this Orwellian behavior?

      • ze moo

        Net Nanny is a program, not a device. Your computer is attached to a proxy server that has a black list of sites it will not connect to. The proxy server can monitor and list any web site you connect to.

        Most businesses use a similar service to keep porn and malware off their desktops. Remember, any thing you do a work can be monitored and recorded.

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Oh yeah, now I remember. lol. But wasn’t there also some kind of device years ago, or maybe I’m just thinking a disk had to be used to set up the nanny program.

          • RMycroft

            A disk. I’m not sure if they warned anyone before the program was installed. It’s a bit moot now. They never updated, and the last version of Windows it would run on was Windows 98SE. (Maybe Windows ME, but who ran that? Sort of like Windows 8.)

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              They were using USB memory sticks for installs last I recall reading.

            • RMycroft

              That would have to be something recent. Back then, USB ports were rare and you needed to install a driver to make memory sticks work.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Do you remember what the members were told what it was, what it was for?

              Jeez, part of the reason for the mass exodus in the mid 80’s was because TV’s were ordered to be removed for staff, and all, including public, had just begun to get official notices that a few, a Few books and movies were banned for entheta (I remember the Exorcist was one of them, which I thought was Wayyyyyy too ironic since I’d just done OT 5 !)

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              I believe they were told the truth about it what it was for. I am trying to remember where I read it.
              It was fairly recently and it was a story from someone who had actually installed the stuff.
              It might have been in a thread at ESMB, but not sure.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              wow, I never thought I’d ever be saying this, but this scientology stuff is getting too crazy even for scientology.

            • Bury_The_Nuts

              Well, you called it before. The ones left are so rabid they don’t care. They welcome that little safe bubble.

            • pronoia

              I’ve been wondering if the cult hasn’t found a way to install tracking software/malware on members’ computers.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Jeez, honest to gawd, these members, their behavior and their lack of the most basic human reaction to attempts at hijacking their minds, I mean, even for scientology, the last few years, there are no filters anymore, so it appears there is no need for any?

              Maybe they really Do have to drink koolaide. Or maybe they just have tracking chips embedded in their skulls at the ethics officer’s dungeon? Sheesh.

            • DeElizabethan

              I’m tech dummy. I can just tell you that I added a neat oriental girl at Flag who could email back and forth to me. When I sent her a Blue Mountain cards, she finally told me that she couldn’t access them or some other things i sent, but appreciated the thought. This was in 2011. Almost everyone, outside of Slimyology that I was in touch with could receive those cards, including my OSA friend at that time. So they block many lines it seems to the regular SO members. Blue Mountain cards are just nice occasional cards.

            • AnyOldName1

              Actually, a lot of companies block access to a variety of non-work related things. Some are blocking Facebook, Blogs, etc. because of security issues as well as production losses. Government agencies are the most restrictive. And if you are on a network – your activity is tracked.

            • DeElizabethan

              Thanks AON. Yes the staffers are blocked then and probably tracked too. Plus they hardly have any time on their own and used for internal use mostly.

      they are still offering to do this for public and staff- to keep us “safe” because “then you won’t see any stuff you don’t want to see by accident, you know? And then you can not be afraid of seeing something that would make it harder for you to go up the bridge, you know? And so it’s a really good thing.” This is how it was explained to me.

    High Crimes
    (Suppresive Acts)

    Suppresive acts are defined as actions or omissions undertaken to knowingly suppress, reduce or impede Scientology or Scientologists.

    These consist of publicly departing Scientology or committing suppresive acts.

    Such suppressive acts include:

    Any felony (such as murder, arson, etc.) against person or property.

    Sexual or sexually perverted conduct contrary to the well-being or good state of mind of a Scientologist in good standing or under the charge of scientology, such as a student or a preclear.

    Blackmail of scientologists or scientology organizations threatened or accomplished–in which case the crime being used for blackmail purposes becomes fully outside the reach of Ethics and is absolved by the fact of blackmail unless repeated. WTF?
    […]
    The rest is here and continues with the crayzy…

      I just noticed that the last phrase shown on the still shot is “Falsifying records.” So Narconon is SP due to its alleged insurance fraud? Hmmm. Interestinger and interestinger.

    • Proud to be an SP

      Wait a bit.

      ” Sexual or sexually perverted conduct contrary to the well-being or good state of mind of a Scientologist in good standing or under the charge of scientology, such as a student or a preclear.” So it is okay to rape a wog? or at least, not suppressive…

      “Blackmail of scientologists or scientology organizations threatened or accomplished–in which case the crime being used for blackmail purposes becomes fully outside the reach of Ethics and is absolved by the fact of blackmail unless repeated.” Leaving aside the last half of the sentence, which I don’t understand at all with my puny wog mind… blackmail is okay as long as it is against wogs?

      • richelieu jr

        ” blackmail is okay as long as it is against wogs?”

        You ask that as if there were any question….

      • Robert Eckert

        What it is saying is that if any wog threatens to expose that Scientologists have committed a crime, then Ethics will not be worried about the Scientologists’ crime, but only about what the dirty wog did in “blackmailing” Scientology by threatening to expose it.

        • sister wendy

          and that if the scientologist does the thing that allowed them to be blackmailed again, that’s a no no

  • pronoia

    If Scientologists feel they need to avoid entheta, they should avoid each others’ facebook pages.

    Just looked through the newsstand copy of Entertainment Weekly. On the Transitions page there is an entry under Splits for LEah Remini and the Church of Scientology. So what awesome tech will be employed to keep all the clams from reading People magazine? (And will the CoS be buying up bundles of copies in Clearwater?)

    • DeElizabethan

      Don’t think so. They didn’t do it with Vanity Fair except maybe close by. The bubble heads don’t even look at the magazine stands and if did, it would cost them. Truly slime balls in their own bubble. Now the newspapers are a little different, but they can’t get them all.

      • SandiCorrena

        Poor Sea Org’ers don’t even have disposable income for magazines-I wonder if they read them in line at the stores?

        • Get a whole bunch of flash drives, label them with the Scientology logo, and fill them with publicly available L Ron Hubbard stuff, as well a hidden file that appears a few days after the LRH stuff is accessed and looked at, which has all the stuff from ET, Hilton Perez, TMZ, etc.

  • Still_On_Your_Side

    The Church of Scientology is becoming a combination of the Republic of Gilead (despotic, puritanical “nation” from “The Handmaid’s Tale”); an heir to Senator Joe McCarthy; and a collection of five year olds screaming “cooties” at each other. If it wasn’t so pathetic it would be funny. I can see Miscavige wandering the halls of the increasingly emptier buildings in Hemet muttering to himself, while wearing a disheveled robe and slippers. Muttering that his billion dollar empire, is going down the toilet because “ingrates” love their family and freedom of thought more than love him and his abusive crap.

    I know there are many people in the Church that are reaching the end of their rope. When you condition people over many years to follow irrational behavior, they likely act irrationally. Miscavige, however, is giving different marching orders every five minutes. After trying to follow every crazy twist and turn, while losing money and friends, even the most brainwashed have self-preservation instincts. In the last few weeks, these are some of the stands the church has taken:

    Go to Facebook, cut SPs out; don’t go to Facebook:
    Go to the Internet, swamp the entheta sites with comments; stay off the Internet:
    Come to watch the 1993 video; oops, it’s cancelled;
    We’re the most ethical people on the planet; pass around these Dead Agent packs;
    Brian Culkin has been victimized by Mike Rinder and the Underground Bunker; Brian Culkin is dishonest; Brian Culkin verified his Declaration, he is honest;
    Mike Rinder and Marty Rathbun were nobodies in the church; Mike Rinder and Marty Rathbun were at the highest level of the church and they must be prevented from revealing top secret church strategies to the Garcia’s lawyers.

    My head is spinning, I can’t imagine what it must be like for someone who thinks they actually have to these orders.

  • KJP in Portland

    Man, that Freedom Magazine is a real shoddy rag. Does Scamtology have anything NICE to say about anyone OUTSIDE their organization? I can’t read that piece o’crap. Not with every sentence containing ‘enemy words’, creep-words, etc. Who takes that crap as real journalism.

    Oh wait, doesn’t Mr. Cabbage have only about a 9th grade formal education? as do a good number of the younger adherents?

    Figures why that magazine reads like a tabloid. You regulars were sure right.

    • Nerf Chandelier

      It’s truly awful- even some of those in the cult realize it

    • Douglas D. Douglas

      Ninth grade would put him beyond middle-school. You are too generous. Freedom reads like something the mean girls in middle-school would put together and pass out during lunch.

    • Xenu

      I keep checking at the newsstand, “Got the latest Freedom Magazine!?”. It’s been over two years. What gives? First it was production flaps, then it was distribution flaps, then it was a huge copy flap when they realized they had nothing to say.

      I mean c’mon…how many “real” magazines go two plus years between issues!!?? lol

      • richelieu jr

        They we so upstat with that megaissue on all the crazy haters out there that they actually broke the charts.. They have to wait for the rest of Scientology to catch up…

      • Nevermore

        Given the lack of education among {church} members, they probably just don’t have staff able to put a new edition together, even using cut and paste. So, that’s one more thing COB is going to have to do on his own – no wonder he’s so tired and angry all the time, pauvre petit homme!

  • KJP in Portland

    h, when I intro’d myself a couple days ago, I forgot to mention that it was the Lisa McPherson tragedy in the mid-90s that cemented my interest in reading up on this cult. Thank you, Tony for the most relevant and fair perspective on these people.

      The OSA Ministry of Truth considers Orwell entheta. Elron’s made up religion is a great example of a godless totalitarian organization where truth is what Little Brother says it is. How many times have they gone back and changed history to remove people from videos, literature, or even the web? It’s hilarious keeping up. We all know how Elron loved to change his own history on a whim.

  • Lurkness

    From reading over at Mike Rinder’s blog, sounds like Kristie Alley should be close (if the rules are fully
    applied) to being declared a suppressive person (SP). Her foul language, nutty rantings and failure to properly promote $cientology and study tech in her tweets have certainly upset me and caused a *flap* (TM) around the globe. Bring on the Court of Ethics and inquisition, I say!

    “Any Public Division person, staff member or Scientologist found using terms, circumstances or data on raw public in public lectures or promotion or in PR beyond the public ability to grasp without stressing study tech or at once taking effective measures to clarify, or releasing materials broadly to a wrong public may be summoned to a Court of Ethics if any flap or upset results. The charge is failureto apply study tech in dissemination.’

    “Any repeated or continued violation of the [above], after two Courts of Ethics for violation of these points, subjects the person to a Committee of Evidence on the charge of committing an act or omission undertaken to knowingly suppress, reduce or impede Scientology or Scientologists, and if found guilty beyond reasonable doubt, the person may be declared suppressive and expelled with full penalties.”

    Scientology Inc is a dangerous psychiatric patient. If it was not so evil, it should deserve our pity. Therefore it should be quarantined as soon as possible, to avoid more harm being done to innocent people.

    Off Topic: a number of Aussie mags are calling the cult defeated, I’ve noticed at the supermarket checkout. I didn’t buy the mags, so haven’t read the articles, but apparently Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes are very relieved at finally being free and having their children returned to them.
    A bit premature, but it’s good to see the bold headlines on the mags for all the wogs, interested or not, to see. I hope that, although it’s probably not especially accurate, it might draw more attention by the general public to the scourge on society that $cientology is!

    One of the easiest ways to undermine the institutional shunning and “entheta blocking” tactics of Scientologists to to treat those fragile Scientologists with sincere cheerfulness.

    If you demonstrate upbeat cheerfulness with Scientologists who are trying to put you into the “SP” box, the way to demonstrate that their little neat system of “SP control” is faulty is to be friendly and tolerant of those aspects of Scientologists’ lives that one can be upbeat and friendly about.

    It’s outside world wiser, tolerant, diplomatic, upbeat, cheerfulness that sidesteps the Scientology preconceived false propaganda character assassination control tactics they.

    Just demonstrate higher principled upbeat behavior, and it disproves their image smearing tactics.

    • Studious Judious

      This is perfect. I wish current Scientologists could see the video clip where Claire Headley is pushing her children on the swing. Oh just look how happy they are now that they’ve left the Church. They actually get to spend quality time with their children. I wonder if there is a good way to present that side when protesting both online, and onsite.

    • Won’t most just chalk it up to covert hostility though? I guess if you can at least change one person’s mind, it’s worth it.

  • Reminds me of the good ol’ days. Back in late 2008-early 2009 the Scilons were apparently being told to sign up on Facebook and to become “fans” of the various L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology info/fan pages. Their pages and groups etc. were “open” in those days, and after being banned from most of them for posting entheta I started up a few pages of my own. The ensuing antics were an utterly delightful cavalcade of lulz, but I’ll just share one with you. One of my sock accounts made a page called “I bet we can find 10,000 Scientologists on Facebook.” I played it very straight and within a couple of weeks lured in 656 Scilons. One day I pulled the plug, messaged the clear cognition to everyone, posted a ton of entheta and other data to the page that might make them think, and then the entheta-panic-shitstorm began. This is one of many screencaps documenting the hilarity.
