War on wogs is hell: A peek inside Scientology right now, and it’s not pretty

More than once we’ve looked through the various fundraising fliers that Scientology puts out and we’ve wondered what it’s like for rank-and-file Scientologists to be under so much pressure, day after day, to show up for events and submit to David Miscavige’s hard-sell tactics in his ongoing war against the wogs. (That’s us non-Scientologists.)

So we couldn’t help enjoying the tone of this item that was put out by the Brighton Org and forwarded to us by one of our readers in England.

Sure, the writer of this flier is going for an effect, but we have a feeling they might have given away more of the truth than they probably intended to. Can’t you just feel the pure exhaustion that Scientology’s marks must experience as this ship continues to founder?



Are we being asked to do too much?

Just now a lot is being asked of us as a group

1. Brighton Ideal Org event on the 8th Feb.
2. A UK wide book-a-thon from the 6th to the 13th February
3. OTVII and above briefing 7th Feb
4. Captains Briefing AOSHUK 9th Feb
5. A CCHR protest on the 15th February
6. IAS WORLD TOUR 15th Feb
7. Tom Cummings and Jim Bridgeforth Event 22nd February
8. Michael Chan 1st March

And lets face it. It’s not going to stop anytime soon. We have ideal orgs to build throughout the UK. Not least our very own in Sussex- Rons home. We need to get this done!

I was speaking to Brian Daniels about the upcoming protest. He gave me some very interesting statistics that I want to share with you.


In 2012 there were 787 instances of ECT administered in Sussex. In 2019 there were 1719 instances of ECT administered in Sussex. This stat is going up every year and has went up without fail every year for the past 8 years. It’s horrific!
There are currently 183 Consultant Psychiatrists employed in the Sussex area. That means psych drugs being prescribed every single day in sussex from 183 different outlets.
This is on our Doorstep! In our community. Its our kids best friend in their football team getting put on psych drugs or our neighbour committing a hateful crime because he was out his head on psych drugs. Bad things happen when psychiatrists are allowed out to play. And just now they are playing in our playground!

Many a time we will be asked to do things we really do not want to do. A lot of people don’t like the idea of bookselling or dealing with wogs for example. Here is a quote from LRH that may help.

How do you get attention? Well, it takes a fairly overt fellow, … a fellow who is slightly gregarious. And just for the sake of your own therapy, you ought to learn to walk up to a person in the street and say, “How are you? What is the matter with your left eye? Oh, is that so? That’s very interesting.” And give them your card or have them sit down on the park bench and fix up his left eye.

That takes brass, doesn’t it? That means that every third or fourth fellow that you meet might be willing to get his eye fixed up. But that means there’s going to be two or three there that you run into that are going to say, “Who the hell is this nut?” Well, you have to be able to take that. Until you’re able to take that, you’re not in good shape. It’s actually a test of where a guy is on the Tone Scale. The Factors, Lecture 7, Track 10

We don’t have 183 auditors currently auditing in Sussex. But we do have the tech! When we build our local class V org we will have people turning to the correct solution in their lives- Scientology. Lets do all we can to help make that a reality.

So this month my wish and postulate is that we, as a group, go to the ideal org event for Brighton, we help in the bookathons, we attend the CCHR protest as well as attend the IAS world tour and all the other events coming up. Lets have a brilliant month as a group and do something we are proud off.

Yeah, that’ll get’em turning out in droves.

When you see those dates listed like that, it does point out just how much the last hangers-on are facing constant bombardment. How long can Miscavige keep them from dropping out from exhaustion?


Mark Bunker makes his push for the homestretch

Before you know it, Clearwater voters will be filling in mail-in ballots, so it’s crunch time for candidates like Mark Bunker, who is running for city council.


He sent us this video about his campaign at this critical time…

“You want to make a Clear Clear. You want to make somebody who won’t have any trouble with the Goals Problem Mass or any trouble with the bank from there on out, and all of his fondest hopes, and so forth. And of course, if you keep doing that in extremis and then straighten out the whole track, and take up all fragments of the Goals Problem Mass in their turn and handle all them, you’ll make an OT. You couldn’t help it. So you probably could make a Dynamic Clear or a Clear Clear, a stable, a very stable Clear by moving straight on through the Goals Problem Mass and getting these valences parked in their proper places on the track so they’re not troubling the pc, and so forth. And he’d stay that way. It’s taken trillennia to get these things assembled into a black sponge. And it’ll take him more trillennia to get them back together again because it’s quite accidental that they remain in that weirdly balanced balance. You mean somebody has got a package that comes from 10 trillion years ago, beautifully poised and balanced against a package that came from 110 trillion years ago, and he’s got a 100 trillion year loop in the Goals Problem Mass. And these two things are opposing each other gorgeously. How does he do it? I ask you. Thetans are skilled, but I never expected them to be that clever. But they actually can do it.” — L. Ron Hubbard, February 8, 1962


Overheard in the FreeZone

“Scientologists that are in the know, myself, likewise, a former exoplanet space-academy member. The more we know and the less the cabal withholds info, spiritual awareness, and their hidden agendas, the easier and faster it will become to get the general population woke to injustice, and knowledgeable or aware enough to want and demand more knowledge, including the knowledge and technology of the LRH Bridge. The Sea Org motto is ‘We Return.’ The old sea was Space, and now, once again, the new sea will be a return to Space.”
