How ironic is the latest Press Release from the RCS? Once again, you are warned to put down any hot coffee and grab yourself a barf bag.
The arrogance of asserted superiority and “facts” in the face of stark evidence to the contrary is not limited to POB at his international circus tent performances. Apparently the assertions know no bounds and are being spewed into the broad public arena too. Like the infamous “Comical Ali” (Saddam Hussein’s propaganda spouting spokesman) it seems the RCS thinks that if they pronounce obvious, massive lies with a straight face, the world will believe them. And, like Comical Ali they are oblivious to the fact that everyone is laughing at them.
But really, it should come as no surprise.
In 1981 LRH wrote the HCOB entitled The Criminal Mind. In it, among many other things, he says the following:
THE CRIMINAL ACCUSES OTHERS OF THINGS WHICH HE HIMSELF IS DOING.
Apparently they add it up this way: “If I accuse him of robbing, then it would be assumed by others that I have not robbed a bank.” By loudly voicing a condemnation of a crime, the criminal, with a crooked think, supposes people will now suppose he is above bank robbery and won’t suspect him.
Now, with that in mind, check out the latest church Press Release.
I have not included the entirety of the rambling, self-congratulatory puff-piece listing numerous false stats, as nobody should be required to read such drivel. But here are a few salient sections (in italics) with my comments following each:
On the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Church of Scientology urges mandatory human rights education as the key to its full implementation of the Declaration. [The RCS would do well to educate itself on what the UDHR holds – so many of its Articles are being violated daily by the church. Remember “If I accuse him of robbing…”]
Human rights are the rights that belong to everyone without exception—to people of any color, creed, age, ethnicity or gender…. [Except anyone who dares express an opinion contrary to those held by David Miscavige and his clubbed seal followers.]
The United Nations estimates that 2.45 million people are trafficked each year, nearly a billion live in hunger, and almost half the world’s population subsists on less than $2.50 a day, making it clear any momentum generated this year must continue and that education and insistence on human rights has never been more vital. [Right… “victims of human trafficking are not permitted to leave upon arrival at their destination. They are held against their will through acts of coercion and forced to work or provide services to the trafficker or others. The work or services may include anything from bonded or forced labor to commercialized sexual exploitation. The arrangement may be structured as a work contract, but with no or low payment or on terms which are highly exploitative. Sometimes the arrangement is structured as debt bondage, with the victim not being permitted or able to pay off the debt.” Does thing ring any bells with anyone? And come now — $2.50 a day would be a raise for those in the RPF…]
For more than four decades, the Church has worked to make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights broadly known. The Declaration appeared in the first edition of Freedom Magazine, the Church’s human rights journal, in 1968…. [Ah yes, wouldn’t a copy of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights look just swell in one of the modern day Freedoms “exposing” the pc folder data of “apostates” alongside the cartoon caricatures, photoshopped images and name calling that Mad magazine would reject? Surely you jest about Freedom mag – can anyone imagine someone from the United Nations reading one of those recent rags? They even turn off KoolAid drinkers and they can stomach almost anything.]
“There are many examples in history of what individuals can accomplish by demanding their rights and insisting on the rights of others,” says Rev. Robert Adams, Vice President of the Church of Scientology International…. [Is this the absolute pinnacle of irony or what? The unknown VICE President of CSI is making the pronouncement on behalf of the International Church about its largest worldwide campaign on Human Rights Day. And it is the VICE President rather than THE President because?… Well, we all know the answer to that, the President, in keeping with the great traditions of upholding human rights and dignity that the church has become so well known for, is held in the Hole, incommunicado for a decade. He has been “disappeared.” And POB doesnt dare announce the fact publicly, or appoint a “new” President as that would make it obvious Heber is “gone.” POB has Heber held incommunicado until he dies and then he can make a grand pronouncement about him. This is no idle speculation, after keeping Mary Sue in similar circumstance for years, Miscavige was thrilled when she died as she was no longer a “problem.”]
The arrogance required to make these statements boggles the mind. But then again, this IS what the Criminal Mind does. While strangling babies, Jack the Ripper is on TV campaigning for children’s rights. While violating human rights and destroying people’s lives daily, engaging in human trafficking and stealing money with false promises and hope, Pope on a Box is loudly announcing to the world that HE is the champion of Human Rights (and I mean this literally – check out the Scientology.org website and you will see all magnificences are directly attributed to the most magnificent one of all).
As a public service to one and all, but especially to POB who probably has never actually READ the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, following are some of its 30 Articles. It doesn’t take a double digit IQ to scan through these and determine whether the RCS is upholding or is in direct violation of them.
Article 1: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
Article 2: Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
Article 3: Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.
Article 4: No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.
Article 5: No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.
Article 7: All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
Article 9: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.
Article 12: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.
Article 18: Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Article 19: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.
Article 20: (1) Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association. (2) No one may be compelled to belong to an association.
Article 30: Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.
So, here’s a challenge for the RCS. How about educating YOUR people as a first step? All those little booklets and videos are really cool.
But of course, that would also mean telling them the truth about what you are actually doing with Heber Jentzsch, what sort of dirty tricks you are employing against those who expose your abuses, and letting everyone know the truth about what is really going on with Scientology expansion.
I’m not holding my breath.
“On the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Church of Scientology urges MANDATORY human rights education as the key to its full implementation of the Declaration.”
Mandatory? Mr. Miscavige is in a delusion. He can order ‘mandatory’ in his
little kingdom. He needs to read the UN document . Its says:
Article 12 “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy.”
if the c of s is really doing a tribute to the UDHR, what about a mention of Eleanor Roosevelt who was the original, ‘champion’ of human rights despite numerous obstacles. It seems like a self evident declaration now, but wasn’t at the time.
In any case: “Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people….” Eleanor Roosevelt
My first thought was how misguided and stupid those at the top have become. Just in this last year any review of the actual video’s where church staff attack the Independent view for having any self observant thought contrary to the party line. It is stunning. I could expect this one on one but to put a release out to the world and look like a fool. No, they shouldn’t lie to the public within the church but to lie to the world and lay bare your false rhetoric is such an admission of failure. End game readily in sight!
BTW – OSA lurkers. Look up your own history. Freedom didn’t start as a magazine, but as a broadsheet. I even believe it was then refered to as Freedom Journal/newspaper. The LRH reference was noting human rights and at that time it really did believe in Human Rights!!
Some hatting for the ignorant who put out these types of releases. “Freedom is Scientology’s international newspaper.” … a publication like Freedom is a defense action and is for public consumption. It is not distributed to org mailing lists. (LRH ED 59 INT)
I know this posting is not about Freedom. I feel it is relevant because you misunderstand a “defense action” as compared to an “offense action.” Now to finish your corrective study action pull out HCO PL 13 Aug 1970 PR Series 2.
“Thus PR is corrupted to ‘a technique of lying convincingly.’
It makes a cynical world. It has smashed idealism, patriotism and morality.
When an enforced communication channel carries only lies then the affinity caves in and you get hate. For the R is corrupted.
PR, dedicated to a false reality of lies, then becomes low A, low C and recoils on the user.
So the first lesson we can learn that enables us to us PR safely is to KEEP A HIGH R.
The more lies you use in PR the more likely it is that the PR will recoil.
Thus the law:
NEVER USE LIES IN PR..” end fair use LRH quote
This is funnier than most realize. Of all the groups to use in a vain attempt to gain credibility, the dwarf couldn’t have picked a worse one. The UN Human Rights Council doesn’t exactly have a stellar reputation on the subject it claims to champion as anyone who even occasionally reads the news would know. For those not in the know,
A few quotes for you:
The Human Rights Council was touted as a major improvement over its predecessor, the Commission on Human Rights, which had been discredited by its poor membership and performance. In recent years, the Commission included some of the world’s worst human rights violators, and was known for its obsessive and unbalanced condemnation of one country—Israel.
http://www.unwatch.org is an interesting site. They’re headquartered in Geneva with the mission of monitoring the UN, kind of like how we’re monitoring the RCS.
Marty you made the mistake of telling people to grab a barf bag. There is not a barf bag big enough in all the world. I am thinking an industrial sized dumpster!
Mike, not only has POB never read this declaration but I can see that noone in OSA has read the US Constitution because someone copied it almost word for word. And those who published it never read the US Constitution or they would have spotted this as a horrible case of plagiarism .
We don’t need no stinking “declaration of human rights” from POB or OSA, we just need the US Government to enforce the US Constitution and all 27 of its Amendments.
And yes. Where the hell Heber? Let’s all send a letter to the Sheriff of Riverside county and ask him where Heber is. Address is: 7477 Mission Boulevard Riverside, CA 92509-2400. If we get enough letters we can get Herber in the limelight.
This post is so eye opening.
Each point within it could be a post in itself. Many times I knew that what I was seeing or experiencing within the Church was a violation of tech and policy…and to see it as also a violation of Human Rights takes it to even another level.
Mike, you have made so many important observations here.
LRH was a great Humanitarian…and the Declaration supports what he envisioned with The Aims of Scientology.
I wonder if John Allender and Nurse Rachet have ever read this? They spent everyday of their lives, over the past recent months, violating every point on this! It is almost beyond belief that people can do such actions and not see what they are doing. Well…I guess that’s what robots do….they don’t see or think…they are simply programmed to do what their programmer installs.
Excellent writing as usual. I must be really getting my bullbait in, didn’t barf once. I did get a flunk on several gag-reactions, but managed to confront it.
I was thinking about Heber and the gang-in-the-gulag. Is it likely that they are totally brainwashed by miscavige into believing that they are indeed the downstats and that miscavige’s bullshit PR actually has some credibility?
Can you imagine being forced to watch those hideous videos of miscavige’s blotations over and over while being heavily indoctrinated with “this is how it’s done you motherF%$*ing, Downstat, CI, As*^%*oles?” Geeze, what an implant that would be.
Article 18: Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.
Choke that one down misscabbage.
Great article as usual Mike!
And ya know, I know these are all things we have discussed and looked at here before…but for some reason…I guess another layer just peeled off for me to see it even more clearly. Thank you.
What do you expect from an organization that doesn’t even honor its own CREED?
“That all men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others.”
“That all men have inalienable rights to the creation of their own kind.”
“That the souls of men have the rights of men.”
Per the “PR” Tech, PR is a tool to be used to GET PRODUCTION GOING.
Note that LRH differentiated between “SALES” and “PRODUCTION”.
There is nothing that lying little entity touches, that he doesn’t pervert.
“clubbed seal followers”
Mike, that was ICONIC!
I was rolling on the floor laughing my ass off until I realized how true it is… YIKES! I think they are all in a daze each time the stand up to applaud at these events… it’s like they’re not even there. (Out-TR-zero)
Mike, I think the complete disregard for human rights by the Co$ stems from the contempt for the human state of existence. Humans are wogs, are bodies, are R6 bank are GE are animals are crazy, etc. LRH started this think but LRH was also deeply concerned for people, as evidenced by the Tech he created or by sticking his neck out in an attempt to create an equal rights constitution in Rhodesia, etc. DM dispensed with all the pesky mush and went right to the heart of the matter as he sees it: people are nothing and should be treated that way.
Yea Tom M,
Only problem with that is DM would have to be either dead or drugged for anyone to allow the most popular representative of the CoS get into the limelight again. But you are right, Heber needs to come back into view once he’s gotten a shower. The way he’s probably treated even he cannot stand the abuses he’s been delivered. Talk about Human Rights Abuses, this man has to be freed and freed NOW!
HEBER WAKE UP!!!
Well, it’s 1984 in the fact we’re getting doublespeak. What’s up is down, what’s right is wrong. Words are taking a new meaning, even the way our rights are defined is taking a whole new meaning.
This is all part of the Orwellian/Miscavige nightmare.
Just what does a Miscavige Scientologist believe? Their definition of Freedom and Human Rights has a vastly different application than what those words actually mean. A sick sort of case where intention has inverted. It’s a simple fact, RCS koolies flow lots of power to you know who.
Insanity ain’t pretty.
To Rev. Robert Adams, Vice President of the Church of Scientology International:
That is a bold press release you have attached your name to regarding the 63rd anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights in light of the voluminous amount of documented human rights abuses perpetrated by your Church of Scientology.
Before using big words like “human rights” and “trafficked” why don’t you word clear them?
What of the human rights crimes committed by Sea Org members on other Sea Org members Adams?
What did YOU do to put a stop to it Adams?
You and your handlers will be made to answer for your crimes.
Physician heal thyself.
Great article Mike!
If current SO members simply duplicated the K/R policy and applied it en masse, DM would be gone in ten seconds.
DM probably laughs at us for being stupified by his daily evil corruption. But, since he’s nuts, the laughter indicates his own out-of-valence misery rather than joy.
MANDATORY human rights, another classic Miscavige oxymoron.
$2.50 a day? I would DREAM of such riches when I was on the RPF. Most weeks it was the square root of fuck all. Most weeks there wasn’t enough for toothpaste or the most basic hygiene requirements.
MORE Vomitupagainthenpukeorbaaaarrffit UPPP & OUTT!
Whatever it takes—just OUTFLOW it (preferably into a toxic
waste disposal facility!!)
This madman is perceptively in an irreversible ‘ kamikaze ‘
nose dive to widespread destruction!
What is extremely disturbing, if unsurprising, is that this
‘sociopath’ will possibly ‘crash & burn’ while taking out his
erstwhile minions ( DMbots) and locked down PRISONERS
at (S)INT, without them realizing it’s coming. Its HARD to
be aware when you’re mind is in ‘shut down’mode.
This is not an ‘IF’ but ‘WHEN’ scenario. LRH himself would
have predicted this. Check out SOS chart h/eval tone 1.5
Utterly DELUDED unredeemable FOOOOOL!!!
How Is COB constantly improving upon LRH? How is he determining who’s clear and who’s not and who has to do what level over again? How is he executive Csing when it banned by LRH? How is he a class 4 auditor who is overriding class 12 Case Supervisors. Well, we have the answer. David Miscavige has a hidden data line. That’s right, COB and his Hidden line are able to make constant corrections to LRH’s technology. Thank god for COB and his hidden data line. Where would be without them?
Well put Mike!
Also, Sara, Great quote.
You wondered: “Is it likely that they are totally brainwashed by miscavige into believing that they are indeed the downstats and that miscavige’s bullshit PR actually has some credibility?”
Unfortunately, its not only likely, it is guaranteed. IF they were not totally brainwashed, they would have escaped from the gulag. The fact that they havent walked means, ipso facto, they are brainwashed. They certainly believe they are downstat DBs who are not worthy of even being in the presence of his magnificence. They have been introverted with so many invalidative sec check/false purpose questions that they have to mock up answers for in order to ever have them end (the “What evil purpose or counter-intention do you have towards COB?” type questions — not even “Is there….”) that they are unable to think clearly or see anything other than what they are TOLD to see.
They COULD leave. It is possible. A lot of people have done so. If someone managed to break down the gates to Gold and get them in a room they would attest to being “happy and well treated.” It’s sad. They are not strong enough to make a move. The whole place would have to be “freed” and they would have ot be assured that POB was deposed and NEVER coming back before they would start to actually look and see reality.
Sorry to give such a miserable assessment of the scene, but I am afraid its quite accurate.
One small correction Franklin. David Miscavige doesnt HAVE a Hidden Data Line — he IS a Hidden Data Line. He has for so many years used the line “I am doing what LRH wanted done” and hidden behind his supposed knowledge of what LRH wanted (i.e. anything POB does) that he has now become Source. He doesnt need to say this any more, as he has moved into a new positioning “It’s what COB wants” and its “Command Intention”. Today, in the world of KoolAid guzzlers, those commands are far more powerful and important than “Do what Ron says” or “What does policy say?”. He has truly become a bona fide cult leader.
“most weeks it was the square root of fuck all” Too Funny!
Yeh! Let’s all do what the CO$ says!!!
Did you say CO$? Aren’t they those whacko’s? They’ll strip you every penny you’ve got, then they’ll start working on your family and friends. ‘Cos they’ve got big plans for the world with your money…
The CO$ is just going through the motions, “Now we do this, now we do that,” in its gradually increasing sclerosis. No bright ideas, no electrifying leap forward, nothing fresh, no support from non-Scientologists. If they did what LRH said, then they might have something worthwhile to show the world. As it is, POB, through his mouthpieces, is yap, yap, yapping.
It’s all very well the churchies believing they are possessed of the means to do good in the world, but it’s quite another to demonstrate some verifiable, unequivocal results.
Was there an actual mention of the Church of Scientology in this press release, or was this POB’s camouflage, the IAS taking credit for this bollocks somewhere in the small print?
MR: And this is another of the great tragedies of this whole mess. Many fine productive, idealistic, dedicated, good people broken in this way. It may be easy to go all no-sympathy on them, i.e. they are supporting POBs squirrelling and suppression – but actually I weep for them.
“For more than four decades, the Church has worked to make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights broadly known.”
Oh yeah??…. I didn´t realize that when I was detained on the Ship for over one year (- guess others who were detained there also not). The “Church” must have forgotten to make it known in the CoS and in the Sea Org. I was specially missing any knowledge and application of the Articles 3./4./5. Or are these not applicable for the CoS but only for the rest of the world?
Maybe also the many hundreds who have spoken out already about the abuses and the Human Rights Violations in the “Church” and in the Sea Org are all hallucinating?
Having experienced the Int Base, I find these supposed Scientology “human rights” organizations disgustingly hypocritical. But it’s interesting that these organizations don’t actually DO anything about human rights. They do not receive reports of human rights violations or act on them. You cannot report human rights violations to them – they have no organization there to actually receive such reports or do anything about them. They do not lobby for human rights. They do not take a stand on specific human rights violations. All they do is promote READING the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In other words, it’s another frothy front with no substance.
HN: Yes, I weep too. It is why I keep working to expose the RCS and POB. If I really was “no sympathy” I would simply ignore the whole rotten enterprise and carry on auditing myself. There are a lot of extremely decent, very talented and highly competent people who have been turned into cowering shadows of their former selves. But I know how they come back to life when they finally break free. I have seen it in so many…. It’s worth fighting for.
Beautifully said and obviously heartfelt…
The church is mentioned throughout as having:
…undertaken a massive human rights education initiative, reaching more than 180 million people in 2011…
…marked Human Rights Day with seminars, rallies, concerts, round tables, forums and festivals, and helped organize more than 80 human rights walks in 26 countries…
…[worked] for more than four decades, to make the Universal Declaration of Human Rights broadly known…
…In 1998, the Church carried out the first of five annual cross-European marathons, reaching an estimated 33 million…
…Since Human Rights Day 2010, … has reached hundreds of millions of people with humans rights information, distributing more than 2 million publications and providing educational materials to more than 45,000 human rights organizations and 4,500 educators and educational institutions…
In case you were wondering, these numbers are plucked out of the clear blue sky by a random number generator. You may note the difficulty therefore in keeping the numbers straight “more than 180 million” at the start quickly expands, at a rate only surpassed by Dear Leader’s strasight up and vefrtical ego, into “hundreds of millions” at the end.
Their condition started earlier with other implants-POB figured out how to capitalize on that. So he is not really talented in that area as these people are already susceptible to going into an implanted stupor. We, who have gotten out can help them in our own ways. Even posting on this blog helps.
One good friend, ex Cine Gold who was involved with shooting the “Human Rights” videos realized what human rights were, but it sure didn’t apply to those within the Int base gulag!
I’m sure many of the crew also had that suppressed realization, adding another straw to the pile and it’s a matter of time until the last straw.
Article 5: ” No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”
This Article is specially for you DM!! Are you doing anything else on your “post” than violating this Article to satisfy your sadistic impulses?
If you believe the RCS PR, then you will also believe this statement or non sequitor as a response, published in the St Pete Times:
Hubbard biographer Danny Sherman told a story of Miscavige spotting an injured sparrow, talking to it and checking back later to see if it lived. “It was immensely tender.” http://www.tampabay.com/news/article1012138.ece
It was also stated: DM = Scientology as part of the response.
RCS PR has not changed drastically since these responses in 09, but instead has been straight and vertical and 70X in their BS.
Right Victoria. In the style of George Orwell’s 1984:
Mandatory is Freely Chosen. Lies are Truth. Upsidedown is Rightside Up. Etc.
Just a correction, and to keep the record striaght.
You are confusing “Chemical Ali”, Ali Hassan al-Majid, a war criminal that was hanged for his crimes, with “Comical Ali”, Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf, a somewhat silly functionary of the former regime.
Thanks — I have corrected it.
I’m with you guys. I have always hoped against hope that many of those people, being trained Scientologists, have withstood that treatment, but unfortuantely there is a lot of precedent in other situations that argue against it.
There is a ‘tech’ for breaking people. Notable examples are Chinese and North Korean ‘brainwashing’ , as demonstrated in the 1950s, during the Korean War. Here’s an article I wrote for another forum:
The concept of “North Korean Brainwashing” has been bandied about in various threads, so I though it would
be good to inform readers of what this actually is and how it is done.
North Korean Brainwashing is based completely on denying the target prisoners all positive emotional
support, and exposing them to an all negative emotional atmosphere, and actually rewarding them when they
acted to destroy their own ideals and emotional capacity, and relationships.
The North Korean brainwashing camps were unique in that the prisoners were relatively well-treated in the
physical sense. They had adequate food, shelter, and water, and were not physically tortured. In fact,
their captors were careful not to make them angry, as this could have provided them with motivation to
oppose the brainwashing process.
A study done after the Korean War, of 1,000 returned prisoners of war who had been “brainwashed”, found
the majority never got back in touch with old friends and family. They were found to be in a condition
described as in “mental solitary confinmement”. All their bonds of affinity and relationship with others
had been broken, and apparently they had lost their capacity to have positive relationships.
The camps they had been in had no barbed wire surrounding them, and very few guards, yet escape attempts
were very rare.
At the same time,it was found that something like 28% of the prisoners had died in these camps, essentially
by giving up their will to live.
These camps had the highest death rates of any camps anywhere, ever recorded.
Many of the prisoners just went to theirquarters one day, sat in a corner covering themselves with a
blanket, and died, often within two days. Usually no-one of the other prisoners tried to help them,
because the bonds of relationship between them had already been broken.
The researchers concluded these men had died of “extreme hopelessness”.
Here is how it was done:
1. Group members are all channeled into informing on each other. Informers are given rewards. This breaks
the trust between the group members and isolates each person from the others. No-one can be trusted,
because anyone might be or become an informer at anytime.
Interestingly enough, no-one was punished for anything they had reportedly done. That was not the
objective. The objective was to destroy the trust and emotionally supportive relationships the group
members had with each other.
2. Prisoners are organized into smaller groups of 10 or 12, and required to confess bad things they have
done, and also to confessing good things they failed to do. They did not confess to their captors, but to
each other, the other group members. This is a “reverse group therapy” process. This gradually eroded the
caring, trust, and respect the men had for each other.
3. Efforts are made to destroy loyalty to leadership and their country, and their own ideals.
4. All positive support is withheld. For example, all supportive mail from home with any good news or
encouragement was withheld. All mail with bad news was delivered – news of death, pending divorce, dunning
letters for unpaid bills, etc were all promptly delivered.
The goal of this kind of brainwashing is basically to completely ARC break (destroy the positive emotion in
their lives) the prisoners with themselves, with their fellows, with their leaders, their country, and with
life, and eventually their will to live.
Some of the prisoners essentially became like their captors, and became apologists for the North Koreans.
Most did not, but all were severely emotionally damaged.
Much of the information here I took from an audiobook called “How Full Is Your Bucket?” by Tom Rath and
Donald O. Clifton PhD.
They are founders of the field of “Positive Psychology”, which they promoted to businesses, but which has
application to all people.
Positive Psychology has to do with the study and implementation of methods for reinforcing and increasing
mental health in any setting, instead of focusing on the sick, disordered, or pathological.
It does reveal how positive or negative interactions between people strongly affect their “mental health”
Only the master of Shermanspeak(r) could come up with “immensely tender” to describe POB based on some imaginary parable of the injured sparrow.
“David Miscavige IS Scientology” — Sue Wilhere, RTC. And in this case Scientology is the “Church of Scientology” and that is a TRUE statement, for it is rotten to its core, driven by evil purposes and vanity and is obsessed with MEST. Couldnt be a more apppropriate or accurate description.
What I see with the HR-PR is the dwarfs attempt to emulate other mainstream churches and hide in the fold. Anyone with half a brain and I don’t mean through surgery is like always it is BS. I do have one question is the SO now toothless? There has to be a number left who are not teenagers.
“But I know how they come back to life when they finally break free. I have seen it in so many…. It’s worth fighting for.”
Thank you for these words.
Yes, just like “Say no to drugs” campaign, Narconon, Able, Wise, you name it. I looked closely, also behind the scenes. Couldn’t find any real emotion or passion to make the world a better place. Just “sly” propaganda, tricks, and “PR” to outsmart the “enemy”. Potemkin villages indeed!
I must admit the only PR that didn’t fit the picture was your “Think for yourself” campaign. I was quite surprised when I first saw it and it was very different to the other same ol promotion coming out from New Era. A piece of brighness in a otherwise rather dark territory. This was one of the very rare occasions where SCN was presented as I saw it at that time.
I want to thank you for this. I can imagine it didn’t come easy.
MR: I hope you did not think I was accusing you of no sympathy in this matter. You better than just about anyone understand what is going on and act on it with courage and compassion. Thanks for all you do.
Great post, such hypocracy! Karen 1 had started taking up various articles and detailing specific violations on her post at EXSMB. She had some great examples of the churcn violations. I thought it really made a great platform for whistleblowing but may have been targeted to the wrong audience. For example, Article 2 can be elaborated with personal experiences of loss of family, personal time, etc. as a result of DM decree. Such as no more babies. This could be done with each article. Really the people who need to know this are the current church members. Perhaps if they saw repeated specific violations by many members it might dawn on them that they have been wearing rose colored glasses and maybe, the “apostates” might be able to shed some light on them. One can wish, right?
Also, Jeff’s comment above about the lack of action from the commission regarding human rights violations was quite interesting. I hadn’t occurred to me that this who idea was just smoke and mirrors but it does not surprise me a bit.
HN — Not at all. What prompted my comment in response to yours was remembering some who have posted here (Ralph to name one) who are of the opinion that everyone should just get along auditing and not pay any attention (non-confront) to the church. I didnt read your comment wrongly at all my friend.
Yes, Think for Yourself was a stroke of genius and truth. It IS what a Scientology campaign should be….
The truly hard core KADs are afraid to see and leave. It’s not fear of disconnection. They have mortgaged so much of their lives to POBs commend intention – losing homes, families, friends, savings, years of living! – that they can’t afford for it to all be a sham. They judge their own value in terms set forth by an SP. If it all turns out to be a sham (as we know it is), they have no value. They have destroyed their own lives – and the lives of those around them – for nothing.
MR: Good. I didn’t think so, but wanted to be sure. I made the comment because I have seen posts critical or no sympathy of those still in nightmare land, but people with that attitude have not experienced it first cannot really understand what it is like there.
UNIVERSAL Rights Declaration
Article 17 states: • Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.
Sea Org members are not permitted to buy or own their own cell phones.
No television is permitted.
Strictly forbidden to watch a movie on a DVD.
Everyone must live in an identical room ~~ they are cloned.
Same blanket, same dresser, same identical internal furnishings made by the RPF slaves
in the sweatshops.
Strictly NOT Ok to ask or have an occasional evening off !
It’s FRYING other FISH !
If one did a get day off, theoretically one could go out to a movie, but there are almost NO days off !
Meal breaks are 20 mins or 1/2 hour max.
None of all this WOG 1 hour Meal Breaks !
Absolutely forbidden to access the Internet !
High Crime !
The $50 a week is only hypothetical. The moment the $$$$revenue is DOWN for the week, compared with the last week, pay is cut to 1/2 pay $25 or 1/4 way $12 !
The way they get away with it, is that is a Religious Contract
Only Miscavige must live like a Saudi King !
In recent years EVERY single STAFF member has been designated as a REG. A MONEY Extortionist. So even if you are a Security Guard, you must SELL books, tapes, DVDs, or get donations in whatever way possible ! A Religious money collection agent ! ALL SEA Org any place anywhere have dual duty. Their normal duty and money extraction from the hapless public.
Let’s take a look another aspect at this Church of Miscavology.
California Penal Code 236.2 states that “the ‘indicators’ of human trafficking are as follows::::
“b) The person is withdrawn, afraid to talk or his or her communication is censored by another person.”
Inside the “Church” Communication, FREE SPEECH, free THOUGHT is completely censored.
Every heard the phrase
“I dare not go there?”
Thought police KICK In.
You DARE not say certain things, but you also DARE not THINK certain things.
Your thoughts could result in those hour by hour police polygraphing SEC CHECKS.
What sheer hypocrisy that the Cult of Miscavology prints and publishes the nobel words of CREED of the “CHURCH” says ~~
We of the Church believe
That all men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others.
While in Actuality
A Negative thought, a criticism of Management, of Miscavige, anything that does not kow-tow to the party line is ferociously dealt with.
Enemy Lines ! Black PR propagandist ! Rollback ! RPF assignee for North Korean behavior modification.
Tom, from all info it appears that Heber is in his self inflicted prison in the Int base. Karen #1 noted that he was given a few days leave a couple of years ago to handle some business AND THEN RETURNED TO HIS PRISON!!!!!!!!!!!! (rather than stay on the outside). It is unfortunate to note that after decades of great service to LRH and Scientology, Heber decided for whatever reasons to front for Miscavige and the IAS actively, being his/its most prestigious spokesman. And he’s now paying the bill.
Mike, I think it is important that what you state IS stated and confronted.
Most Sea Org members are afraid to say what they really think or have observed. Some will hurriedly “Knowledge Report” you to Religious Technology Center for having said something negative !
Quote from my earlier essay:
Following the tradition of secret police as a modern-day Gestapo, RTC demanded the entire population of Scientology act as secret informers. A normal report includes copies to the person who is being reported on. But RTC’s report line is confidential. Husbands are encouraged to report on their wives and wives on their husbands. Parents are told to report on their kids and kids to report on their parents. Friends report friends. Marriages, families, and friendships mean nothing to Miscavige.
Failure to report someone to RTC makes one an “accessory to the crime.” Sea Org members are encouraged to report the slightest infraction and even when there is only a suspicion of something. RTC policy specifies identical penalties for those who “fail to report” to RTC.
If you speak with the slightest criticism, you will be labelled “disaffected,” “anti-management,” “an Enemy of the Church,” you could be instantly removed from your job, being put under *SECURITY* watch, or sent to hard labor or the RPF til you come around MENTALLY and toe the party line.
Remember, Just quitting is HARD.
Payroll is so little, a Sea Org member has little to no reserves to live on if they flee.
They are penniless.
And what resume for a new job ?
That you come from a CULT ?
You are also fleeing knowing there will be UTTER DISCONNECTION from all you have loved and connected
with including family.
It is the ultimate TRAP.
It is pretty WILD that the Church staff do not consider any of these draconian over-the-top punishments as
SUPPRESSIVE acts !
Only the whistle blowers and the Critics commit Suppressive acts !
The Church *believes* it has superior goodness and has never EVER committed a Suppressive act !
ENEMY LINES such as Critical THOUGHT of Miscavige and Church activity is
simply not TOLERATED ! But at INT BASE (and I have had long conversations and debriefs with ex RTC ~~
INT BASE punishments for critical thought or words are INHUMANE.)
So much for Universal Rights ! of the individual !
“he has moved into a new positioning”
Les, your new word, “blotations ” is marvelous on so many levels!
My God, Mike, if you were as good as Miscavige, you would NEVER correct anything because that would be an admission that you weren’t perfect! (Actually, I think I ran that one out on Grade IV–I guess Miscavige hasn’t gotten to that level yet…)
You say 1/2 the world’s population subsists on less than 2.50 a day and that a Billion people live in hunger.
Why not just do something about it? You ever hear if your going to talk the talk then you better walk the walk?
Our Churches here in Midland send Missionaries and volunteers all over the world to help feed, clothe, educate and overall help the needy. There are programs and actions such as food drives, toy drives, shoe and clothing drives, support for the troops overseas, etc etc etc.
Around here we donate to outside charities and help folks out. This is what people do and this is what churches do. If you’re going to be a church, you gotta do what churches do. Ya know what I mean?
hypocrisy hy·poc·ri·sy [hi-pok-ruh-see]
1. a pretense of having a virtuous character, moral or religious beliefs or principles, etc., that one does not really possess.
2. a pretense of having some desirable or publicly approved attitude.
from <Late Latin hypocrisis, < Greek hypókrisis: play acting, to play a part
The public charades of Scientology Corporation endorsing “Human RIghts” is insincere manipulation, play acting to garner contrived “reality.”
Do David Miscavige and miscreants Scientology Corporation hires — all documented, video taped and on record–justify the heinous violations of human rights, decency and the law when they stalk, calumniate and harass, torture, confine and imprison, introvert, intimidate and violate? They either justify it with only “honest” people have rights, and they define “honest” as “anyone who goosesteps to Miscavige” — or they knowingly are doing wrong. Either one is a menace to Human Rights.
The Scientology Corporation hypocrisy is blatant, and it is a standing injustice for those who know what goes on behind the scenes — the world needs to listen. True leaders need to distinguish between actual philosophy Scientology and the rogue elements that have infiltrated and are contaminating it via a hypocritic Corporation that has a very different agenda than its stated aims.
Mike, Brilliant posting!!! Human Rights? DM has not a clue what Human Rights are. His only concerns is himself!!!!!!!!
I would venture to guess that maybe the story of DM going up to the sparrow and checking back to see how it was doing later, was true. My understanding is that he is a master of false PR and this could have been one of his efforts to “prove” to others how “caring” he is.
Does my speculation have any validity to it, Mike?
They are not applicable to Scientology only to the rest of the world, because the Church has an excuse that they are the only ones saving the planet, so that means that they can do whatever they want because they have to bypass everything decent to get the job done of achieving decency in the world.
Do you get it now?
Spot on, Mike. That’s what I was thinking when I wrote http://possiblyhelpfuladvice.com/?p=4377, but you covered it masterfully.
We in RTC are pleased to announce that our Universal Declaration of Human Rights campaign has resulted in over 3,000,000 people per day calling the Church of Scientology for help. They know we are the experts on human rights and turn to us to exact global retribution on Psychiatry.
Fully 97.5% of those people who call us sign up for the Basics course and purchase a Basics library consisting of CD’s and books. The 2.5% who do not immediately sign up for our help are homosexuals, psych cases, or otherwise have out indicators such as free thinking or using iPods for downloads.
It is a known and well-demonstrated fact that Big Pharma has hacked into iPod and all other like devices in order to effect its mind control programs. Factually, iPod = Important! Psychiatry Orders Death! An iPod is a death implanting device. In his wisdom and foresight, then, COB RTC David Miscavige personally constructed a state-of-the-art facility that manufactures Psych-proof CD’s and books. To download Tech is to invite surreptitious alterations by Psych-hackers.
In his wisdom and foresight, COB RTC David Miscavige also personally created over 1,200,000 Ideal Orgs so that the thirty million people who become Scientologists every month have totally upstat and protected islands of theta in which to begin their adventure in Scientology.
By actual survey, there are only six people on this planet who oppose Scientology. Because they use sockpuppets, software robots, and other tricks, they make themselves look like hundreds of millions of people who oppose Scientology. This is all an apparency that we in RTC have well under control.
In concluding we reiterate that our Universal Declaration of Human Rights campaign is an unparalleled success unsurpassed by any other human accomplishment ever. We celebrate COB RTC David Miscavige for undertaking this earth-changing accomplishment that will reverse planetary decline.
COB’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights campaign has become so crucial that mandatory education in it has been ordered in the 11,317 countries of the world. Only Communist North Korea has held out. This means that only people who disagree with COB’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights campaign are North Korean Communists.
Dave — that could be true. MOre likely Dan told him about the sparrow he had seen. Sometime later, POB might have asked Sherman “Hey, did your sparrow survive?” and that became a parable of astonishing compassion.
I promise you, DM doesnt care about any animal that is not his.
I got chills and goose bumps reading the Articles you quoted. These articles were written to protect us…. The Church only gets away with these Human Rights abuses because they ARE a Church in the US. This status is crumbling. Our Federal government is pressured by us and other governments to un-Church this monster…. for the sake of Human Rights!
Rolling on the Floor Laughing.
We lost OTDT and Deep Fax.
Do we have a *Christmas Replacement ?*
LAUGHTER!!! TOO FUNNY!
I fully understand. I was at the point in the past that I questioned why I thought the way I did. I had people I knew behind the razor fence – Heber was one. I couldn’t fully understand why they did not just rise up and rebel against the insanity of it all. I had to put myself in their place to understand how this could be so. I so truly believe in the inherent goodness that I know at some time they have the ability to come to the full beingness I knew. It is empathy and not sympathy that I felt.
What I had to confront was the scene was so suppressive they would degrade and lower themselves beneath it bit by bit and not see the outcome in advance. So covert is the degradation that one must first start to agree and then is entrapped into the downward spiral. I think daily for an outcome to this and know that a continuation of communication will speed this process along. Therefore, I, along with others continue to post. It is with the intention to assist in the ability of others to rise to cause over their situation.
The obstacle at first was to overcome the thought stopping that I was wrong to observe and think about what I perceived as fact. The truth was not allowed and this took some time to overcome. I fully can understand why there is a length of time to decompress and rise above the chaos to be able to see it for what it is. I was assisted by those on this blog and others who had gone before me and wrote about it. I thank all of you.
SA: You got it exactly. Thanks.
Otherwise known as “Baghdad Bob”:
Do I win anything for having been subject to violations of all 30 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights articles by David Miscavige’s Church of Scientology?
I know that the scenario you just gave here is hypothetical but if that actually were the way it went down, that would say something not too complimentary about Dan Sherman, as his account that he gave of what happened would be a pretty major alter-is.
OTVIII….. actually the only human being left on Earth who disagrees with Dave is Kim Jong Il. Even everyone else in North Korea agrees with see-oh-bee and as a matter of fact, 63% of that country is already through DMSMH at one of the 26 new “Ideal Missions” there. The expansion is really amazing – I really do think that Tom Cruise will be drafted now by a major political party and be elected President in 2012. Davey will be White House Chief of Staff, but will actually really be running the country – hey, TC is just an actor, folks. Thank God, there will be now be a truly great American leader that we can put up there with Moe, Larry and Curley……. I mean Washington and Lincoln.
For those who missed out, what happened to OTDT and Deep Fax?
I have been wondering for some time.
Looks like the San Fran Org is teaching members about Human Rights
“Do you get it now?”
Baically…. I got the concept of suppression with its mechanisms long time ago. Just was “thinking it away” during my encounter with the evil forces which were planting themself (again) inside a prosurvival group to undermine and pervert it and to stopp it before it was even further advancing in freeing beings.
I sometimes ask also questions to get others to question and think on the line with me, and I have to admit that I find the playing with irony sometimes entertaining. Sometimes it is also not easy for me to put the concept which I try to convey simply into (English) words.
I really like your handle and read your description why you choose it very interested and understanding when I was still a…hmmm, kind of lurker. And I remember how the many postings and replies helped me to desolve the thought-stop and to sever the invisable line which was holding me still connected to the “thought police”.
And….yes, I got it….!
Superb post,very applicable to the RCS’ methodologies
and reveals even more sinister ‘CSW’, done by the
‘madmanager’ of this cult, than most would even suspect
Mike,YOU have no idea how much I genuinely GET
the ‘experience’ from whence thee cometh! Jeez,
don’t need to overdo the validation thing here,but
to SEE and HEAR the obvious compassion you
STILL have, (& Marty of course!) after enduring the
most horrendous provocation, just plain ‘stumps’ me!
Thank you, mate,for all you do, for ALL OF US !!!
Scott, you get a standing O as in O M G!
Sapere Aude, Thank you, my experience too, as no doubt
for many others. This blog, for me,anyway, is a ‘follow-on’
from LRH’s ‘Self Analysis’ in that it CERTAINLY DOES
“Move One UP a LOT Higher”
Mike, YEAH!! Like the IAS, is simply ” I Am Scientology “
Robert,VERY GOOD CALL!! The actual, timely, HANDLING
of THE WHO (wicked being!) BEHIND this unprecedented
situation, is,made so seemingly complex,via legal and
constitutional challeges, that he ends up ‘gloating’ at his
I am fully aware, that this won’t ‘wash’ with your ‘newly’
adopted faith, but please ‘humour’ me for a moment….
Saddam Hussain’s multiple decoy palaces,body doubles
SCUD missiles and population brain washing ploys…..
….. couldn’t save him
Both JACK and ROBERT Kennedy, ‘seemingly’ fighting
for ‘the People’ were effectively ‘terminated’ in the blink
of an eye!
……nobody could save them
Dozens of Icons, politicians and lesser mortals, have
been exterminated, for crossing one too many
boundaries and in the eyes of those who simply said
” ENOUGH ” were “handled” permanently.
By the time his NIGHTMARE ending is upon him, it
will be TOO LATE to stop!!
Utterly DELUDED FOOOL! Anyway,PBWY, Li’ll bit
Karen # 1,Thank you for your report from the ‘front
lines & trenches’ of “hoodwinking (hoodwanking!) ”
MI-SCAM-AGE’s deceptively commandeered take
over. I learn and glean more & more every single
“session” on this REVELATORY blog, which simply
allows each and every one of us, the,opportunity to perceive,duplicate and understand situations and events, (which, per LRH, “washes away everything”)
Hope YOU Karen, are again having your own wins &
cogs,with the life changing LRH Auditing SKILLS
that you are empowered with, in guiding your own
PC’s and P’OT’s up a little higher !!
DM doesn’t get being, nor granting of life. What is Greatness is a foreign idea as he doesn’t understand and so can’t see life in all its guises.
He’s a sad thing really. Locked in a prison of ideas. Battling long gone dust motes and digging in further. No wonder he can’t see others and grant them life and beingness.
You mean something like LRH wrote in 1954 that you David Miscavige have time ” wasted processing nothing but movie stars and millionaires—if he forgets that these can only buy him the luxury of charity in the backwaters of the world.” Dianetics and Scientology…A Crusade, Oct 54.
If one can only abstract from where they are in the ‘Church’ then one should be able to see clearly how they are being abused by the ‘Church’.
It’s a good word indeed. I to spell it bloatations. It goes well with a word I coined awhile back, that seems to fit David Miscavige perfectly.
He is a procrasturbator..That’s why he never completes a cycle of action.
Hey Mike, I think I have conquered some mystery here on this.
Here is a list of perceptics: http://www.scribd.com/doc/6293751/List-of-Perceptics
These would especially be needed for an honest leader:
#39. Emotional state of other organisms.
#43. Reality (self and others)
#44. Emotional state of groups.
#53. Awareness of importance, unimportance.
#54. Awareness of others.
Robert, apologies!! confused you with GMW!
The declaration does have US constitution/Bill of Rights undertones, which isn’t surprising as it pushed through by Eleanor Roosevelt who took a personal interest in having a universal statement of intent after WW II. The intention was for governments to incorporate these intentions into their own domestic legislation, and at least in Europe it has been successful as far as direct effect via the ECHR (European Convention on Human Rights which almost identical to the Universal declaration). Most EU countries have a legal mechanism where one can bring a case, citing breach of human rights, to their domestic court, and once domestic remedies have been exhausted, Strasbourg will ultimately decide.
Anyone interested in the evolution of human rights would be interested in, ‘Human Rights and End of Empire’ (Simpson) which is a fascinating book.
Thanks for posting this, Valkov. Very interesting and for certain people at Int are subjected to some version of this, though it is much more abusive than what you write here. One day it will be interesting for me to reconnect with people I once knew at Int (incidentally, among the finest I have ever known) and help them come to life again. For certain it will happen at some point. Even Hitler’s Third Reich lasted only a dozen or so years.
Today is my 8th anniversary of blowing from Gold and I have never for a second regretted it. We were given 2 1/2 hours to go shopping for Christmas presents to send to family and I decided to give myself a Christmas present that morning instead. It was only a few days before Christmas and the presents would never have arrived in time anyway. Instead I called them that evening, an early Christmas present, and they were overjoyed. While I think it became much harder to blow after I did, I know many others who have left, so I have to agree with Mike that the people who remain are broken souls and we should not forget them. They each have their own reasons for remaining but those reasons stem from false data. Using the IAS war chest to help them start new chapters in their lives would be a good use of parishioner donations.
Thank you very much for the ‘insider’ view of the SO.
It gave me reality.
A 3 liter bottle of makers mark. Where should I send it?
Thank you for your post on this thread.
This information is priceless to me because I see the reality now
of what you folks were dealing with.
Thank you for taking the time to make the comparison with North Korean
‘brainwashing’. This entire thread is very informative.
I remember the pressure of spending an entire day with a SO recruiter in 1987. I did not join even after OTVIII despite enormous efforts by a team
at the end of the day.
I served closely with some of those Christian groups for about 3 months in the Orange Texas area post Hurricane Katrina. They were some of the most incredible human beings I ever met.
Small country churches assembled mobile field/emergency response kitchens, hundreds of thousands of dollars each, the farmers and ranchers coming out and manning them for months on end, for free, covering their own expenses. They were feeding 3-7,000 people per meal, three times a day, free. I don’t remember the bible verse they operated on, but it was something about feeding the tired and weary. They wanted and asked for nothing in return.
Our relationship started when I ate at one of their camps. I was so impressed I met the team leader to ask how I could help. They had most of what they needed, but were short of water, there was no safe clean drinking water for a hundred miles any direction. Water was being imported from Austin Texas, water for cleaning and washing as well as cooking, at a cost of something like $3-4.00 a gallon. They asked if we could help drop the cost of their water. I got together with one of my vendors who provided trucking, we put together a purification system, and got them all the water they could use. These folks wanted to pay us, they wanted nothing for free. We provided provided water and purification at no charge, tens of thousands of gallons, and my vendor friend, who is a fellow Christian, provided the trucking at no charge. We had extra diesel fuel which we gave, they made sure none of our staff were ever hungry.
This was a dynamic of real world giving and doing that I had never experienced, on that magnitude in my earlier life in Scientology. A few people did so much so selflessly.
It’s not surprising that the midget picks a group with a terrible record to try to position himself with. Although maybe he’s using the UN Human Rights Council as his guide in saying one thing while doing the opposite.
Here’s a outrageous quote from the link I posted:
In June 2007, dominated by repressive regimes, the Council eliminated its monitors of abuses in Belarus and Cuba. Then it sacked its expert team on Darfur. Next it cut its expert on violations in Congo (DRC). Liberia was next. Slated for elimination in March 2009 is the expert on Sudan.
Mike – thank you for posting this. It is very real to me how RS violates, on a daily basis, civil and legal rights. I have experienced this personally.
Persons of goodwill doing something effective to help others … love it!
Thank you. I understand that you got it and really I already knew you got it, otherwise you never would have brought it up. I was just using irony myself when I asked you if you got it because I already figured you did.
I’m glad you posted the actual articles of the universal declaration of human rights rather than say the church of scientology’s dumbed down version; like you say the articles are not exactly difficult to understand.
My concern with the church of scientology expounding mandatory education in human rights is they will have their own twist because of course they never violate human rights; the right to religious freedom means to right to be subjected to the abuse of the church of scientology for instance. (How dare you violate Heber’s human rights by suggesting his rights are being violated) ^^ < the previous sentence may contain traces of irony and sarcasm.
Absolutely great example. It is the bad product that turns into “no help” and the good product that makes people want to help. (Freely quoted from HCO B Superficial actions).
Wow, the church of scientology sent out educational material to 45,000 human rights organisations. Gosh how would those organisations have been able to function without the church of scientology educating them on human rights…
C of S = Scamology
Scn = Give me all your money, time and soul
DM= Hitler, Saddam and Bin Laden all rolled into one!
DM = nut job
This is real help. Also just to point out, being an atheist who does voluntary work, you don’t need religious texts to dictate how you help or that you should help others.
Nothing against people of religion helping though.
There are miracles involving birds that the North Korean propaganda department fabricated to demonstrate the divine nature of Supreme Nutjob Kim Jong Il. The list of parallels between DM and another despotic dwarf that rules a different collapsing empire grow daily.
What a beautiful story of giving! And you know those people will never forget that and it will be payed forward over and over. 🙂
Real help. No PR, hyperbole or glitz. The world needs more of this type of co-action between people.
You have won already!!!
You have won already – together with your wonderful soul mate and wife Karry – due to having survived all that and having come out of the darkness, out to the other side, whole and theta. You have won respect, love and trust and insight and the valuable ability to help others in the right way. You have won a satisfying life with your two daughters, family and friends. You have won freedom and independence. You have won back your journey to go up the bridge with one of the best and most competent auditors. You have won a bright future.
Don’t make me BARF! 🙂
Happy Anniversary Dan.
Freedom. It’s one of those occasions you never forget.
Mike, Once again thanks for the Eagle Eye View!
” They could leave, It is possible. If someone
managed to break down the gates at Gold and
get them in a room, they would attest to being
“happy and well treated.” It’s sad. They are not
strong enough to make a move. The whole
place would have to be “freed” and they would
have to be assured that POB was deposed and
NEVER coming back before they would start to
actually look and see reality.”
I had to read this several times over,to see
“thru” the fogginess clouding my own ability to FULLY get THESE points.
Finally got the FULL message and it meant a
mind shift along the lines of what LRH referred
to,in his treatise; “Handling The Dangerous
I reckon EACH blogger on this site would do
themselves a HUGE favour, by “star-rate
checkout” on both the content of your above
comment and that LRH Pack !!
It Should become CRYSTAL CLEAR that the
type of DIRECT intervention, you mentioned, is not likely to emanate from anyone posting
on this site, but rather as you & Marty have
often pointed out, as a RESULT of doing so!
There ARE those agencies,( hear this,trolls)
fortunately, who specialize in and are trained
and equipped to deal with these type of
mass interventions, to the END result you
have envisioned. To paraphrase you again,
Mike; ” It is possible.”
I believe there is enough COLLECTIVE will,
to amass the action required, to make this
bold step HAPPEN !!
I agree. So the solution becomes to be very right about continuing with your life as a KAD. It’s quite the trap.
+1. Very expressive Martin!
And ‘disinfected’ would have been sent for word-clearing and sec-checking for daring to question you 😀
At least DM must approve of all your good work educating on human rights!
As for DM and the RCS, let them stick to their normal gelluded ways!
GTH, love watching “theta ping pong”….lights go on!
DM did never anything for me, but you are so wrong about the applied philosophy Scientology, Rory. Scientology is not about money, time, and “wanting the soul”. We don’t even use this term.
Before Scientology, I was a lonely loser, using medical and street drugs. After I applied it, I changed my personality (did really suck) had tremendous spiritual gain and meet a wonderful woman. We married 15 years ago and have a fantastic son. Financially and socially, we did also great. Whatever I invested in Scientology, I got it back, because I APPLY THE TECH.
Scientology also helped me to understand very complex philosophical questions that other religion never answered.
I will be always grateful to LRH.
Ciao and love to all.
Merry x-mas, my friends.
Beautiful and true.
“after keeping Mary Sue in similar circumstance for years, Miscavige was thrilled when she died as she was no longer a “problem.”
Thanks for clarifying that Mike. I always suspected as much. It’s good to have confirmation.
I was kinda hoping for a trophy or something…
I don’t drink enough to justify that. You could raise a glass to Mike and Marty for me though. Salute!
That’s the same thing that I said. As in “Oh my God what the hell am I doin’ here!”
From my recall, one of the key duties LRH gave to CMOI was to ensure that the LRH Communicator Network did not get disestablished. LRH was concerned that an SP could come along and dismantle orgs by knocking out the LRH Communicator Network.
LRH Communicator’s across the planet ensured that LRH policy was applied and they ran LRH programs in orgs. These programs always expanded orgs. An example of one program was the “Green on White” program. This program helped staff and public stay on source by not allowing verbal tech, or destructive orders (like fundraising) as any staff or public could always say “show me the LRH green on white policy”.
DM dismantled CMOI, (all in the hole now) then blocked the LRH Comm Network from running any LRH programs and ordered that LRH Communicator’s are only allowed to run DM programs. This is how org’s are being destroyed and why we have so many small and failing org’s across the planet.
If a staff member or public now said “What LRH policy are you referring to?” he would be labeled “disaffected”, “ethics bait” and his bridge progress stopped. The retort to “but that is in violation of LRH policy” is now “It’s Command Intention”.
Public and staff can no longer request help from the LRH Comm of their org as DM has stifled them.
Hi Li’ll bit, and hello again to you too.
R2-45 is indeed frowned upon.There are a number of organisations who are very sticky about the welfare of bodies, yet don’t give a hoot about your sanity. What were those two rights again? Right to leave a game and a right to your own sanity – that is also frowned upon with the same veracity as a Gestapo recruitment Officer.
The nuttiness of ‘towing the party line’ seems to know no bounds within the RCS. I try to image what it must be like at weekly production meetings at an Org these days and the only pictue I get is akin to drinking wet cemet.
If one was bold enough or exterior enough, taking a good look at the words, ‘human rights’ one could run those as a dichotomy (opposites; two things which when interplayed, cause action), but that is a bit aways up the line for the moment.
Merry Christmas 🙂
Yes this thing exposes a very insidious “devolution”.
It just really struck me that I had seen this before… and guess what? It is hugely similar to the “devolution” that has taken place in the “lot” of theta in this sector.
Bright, wonderful, powerful beings were systematically inculcated with false data and misdirected to false “whys”. They (read WE) were degraded and overwhelmed, and little by little we decided that WE actually WERE NO GOOD. We decided that we needed to withhold our own goodness and power and honor because it was consistently “demonstrated” that we could not be trusted to act freely. It was made to seem totally useless to fight back, and so we incrementally denied our own abilities, withheld our power, and even our understanding. We eventually decided to no longer even look. We denied our own beingness and signed over our integrety and our honor almost all of our responsibility, and became PTS to pretty much everything. We became “game pieces” instead of “game players”. much less “game creators”.
But you see… Everyone here is on their way out of that abyss. With whatever vestige of hope and truth, and theta that still glimmered in our beingness we have started on the long road of recovery. Some are making excellent headway. Some have passed the “make/break” point and can no longer be struck down.
Our “exteriorization” from “the fiasco that is “the church of David Miscavige’s Scientology” is a microcosm of our “exteriorization” from the larger evil.
Accomplishing this end of “exteriorization” from, and the resolution of the madness that beings have come to consider “normal”, was L.Ron Hubbard’s goal, and I think it is our goal, or purpose, too.
Some will cognite and exteriorize easily. Some will take considerably more work. Some are so heavily in agreement with the implants that they will cling feverishly to the falsehood rather than be willing to be “wrong” again, but we have the tech to ease their passage over to the truth and their rehabilitated honor and responsibility.
I guess that what I am trying to say here is that the ills of the current “church of Scientology” are a microcosm of the same ills that afflict individual beings, society and at large, and will respond to the same technologies that are demonstrably handling earth society and the individual beings that comprise it.
Holy Mackeral? Are you seeing this DM Clone that came out of the SF Org to assault Tommy Gorman and then take off? Holy cow? He must have just had a GREAT session of DM style NED. 25 Sec Checks run per secondary erased! Geesh! Right on camera! 🙂 And this Scientologist was mad. I love Tomm’s shirt with the information on the back.
This is language of the UN, not DM. It means that the signing party (usually a State) must educate its citizens on their rights. It is a mandatory condition for the State participating in the Declaration. (BTW, there are other conditions than “Mandatory” and so on in the UN language .. “Conditional”, etc. Don’t get similarly tripped up there..)
This is no sign of DM’s madness, but simply the language of the UN slipping into the stream, here.
Of course I meant that part in the last paragraph to read…
“….are a microcosm of the same ills that afflict individual beings, and society at large….”
Yikes! Naturally you win the title of TOUGH SURVIVOR. :>)
Ok, after that Trophy comment I’ll throw in Lunch.
Karen B, it’s already within us,if we have the will to give it
Successful, thank you for sharing your beautiful success
story, my friend and in some ways,this mirrors my own.
I have found this blog to be such a dynamic way to clear
away confusions and blow “charge” that, for me, anyway’
it’s just like having daily “sessions” that validate certainty,
rehabilitate wins and remind me constantly of the basic
“goodness” (theta) inherent in all (even aberrated) beings
Ciao & luv & ARC to you & your wonderful family Li’ll bit
Eric, Dang accepted! tut–tut..slipping my boy!..got it, anyway!
George, we’re certainly ” Richer ” in terms of being
able to benefit from all these “insider” views. How
else could one glean even a fraction of the tomes
of the actual causes behind the “madness” to have
overtaken, what used to be a ‘fun, ARC, & win-filled
genuinely tone raising ” CHURCH ” ( LRH version!!)
Lots’a Luv & ARC Li’ll bit
Sherb, just love this. Let us all, collectively, hold these
thoughts, while we “pray” for said ACTION…..soon!!!!
Much Merriment to YOU & Yours, too, over “silly season “
Man, we got so many trophies, which one do you want? The $2000 tee shirt? The $500 baseball cap? You can’t have the Excalibur Sword. I think that was $300,000 so I’m not ready to toss it yet. and sorry, the hats and tees already went into the Goodwill collection box. My apologies…
When my son disconnected from me, and I started researching on the internet, I discovered that the Church was touting human rights through a group they had set up. I read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and was shocked and appalled when I discovered that in my estimation, the practice of DISCONNECTION would be clearly against the tenants of this declaration.
To wit: Article 16
(1) Men and women of full age, without any
limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found
a family. They are entitled to equal rights
as to marriage, during marriage and at its
(2) Marriage shall be entered into only with
the free and full consent of the intending
(3) The family is the natural and fundamental
group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.
The hypocrisy struck me so hard that I immediately sought legal counsel to find out what I could do about this shameful practice. It was a key point to my becoming an Independent.
Also, Article 12 describes that the family should be protected from interference, along with a person’s reputation. As Disconnection occurs after a person’s reputation is totally shattered by being declared, the practice of declaring someone a Suppressive Person, and the subsequent Disconnection, IMHO violates this Declaration of Human Rights.
Just my two cents on this subject.
My sentiments are much the same.
I agree the church of scientology fiercly stamps on any percieved criticism of it and it’s esteemed leader Homo Novis Prime David (friend of the sparrows, except anonsparrow) Miscavige.
Of course they would say without a hint of irony and with that unblinking drone like stare that on the contrary they totally support your right to free speech, but they also have the right to “counter” it by calling you a bigot, hate monger and investigating your crimes (faggot).
Yes, very good observation. Because the primary motive for running the campaign first and foremost is public relations. It is NOT social reform. God forbid that they actually have to DO something substantial to right universal wrongs. Anyway, they can’t. Their mutual out-ruds prevent them from doing anything truly worth import and meaning including confronting their own abuses and cleaning their own house.
Thanks Mike for reminding us,yet again, of their falsehoods.
Karen, I think people should know that your videos on the internet on You Tube are wonderful. I watched them more than once and very much enjoy listening to you speak. I hope you make more videos and I will watch them all.
Loved these new words. They’re worth submitting to the Urban Dictionary.
That’s interesting Lucy. I totally remember the “Green on White” program.
And as to asking for the LRH policy, or pointing out how something is a violation of policy, particularly regarding fundraising…the response to me has been on the order of, “well, since you don’t attend events, you don’t really have the full picture of what is happening.” Ya, right.
Every line, every check and balance that is supposed to exist in the Scientology international organizational structure, has been suborned.
This is astounding. “The overt doth speak loudly”. Accusing others of what POB is doing, indeed!
Can we not create a class action lawsuit against DM for these violations?
I didn’t get it until our young teen was in the S.O. And what it took to get her out. It was getting terrifying. I never would have believed anything I read here until I personally experienced it as a parent. The blatant lying is what made me start to look, along with the gross out-ethics, threats to our survival and future Bridges, all the while accusing us of being “out-ethics” and “external influences”, when trying to keep in comm with our child. The clincher was when we were asked, “How do you know (name) wants to even have anything to do with you? She’s in the S.O. now!” LRH would be mortified.
But Kim Jong-il has his own ideas.
And in North Korea, the study of the Declaration of Human Rights is absolutely Mandatory and there will be a quiz – frequently.
Each student must demo each point, to show how the Genocidal Evil Capitalistic West has in the past, does now, and always will in the future violate the Human Rights of the North Koreans.
Their next course of study is rumored to be How to Shatter Western Suppression and Destroy All Those SPs Living Outside of North Korea.
Wow! I just saw a news headline online that Kim Jong-il has kicked it – dropped the body at 69 years of age.
Lucy , thanks for this post. Sadly, it brings back to focus
just how long back it was, when LRH was at the helm
and just how MUCH, this little sociopathic thug has, not
just perverted, but actually destroyed, in removing the hard-won workable road that LRH had created to free
man from the agonies of his existence.
This, happens, ironically, to have included, the auditing
out of engrams, such as those being dramatized, on a
daily basis, by the self appointed (commandeered actually)
” Leader ” of the CO$ and I A S ( I Am Scientology !!)
The sheer VOLUME of OVERTS of COMMISSION and
OMISSION committed by this single individual is quite
unprecedented in the ENTIRE history of Scientology
and is barely even ” hinted at ” in the “TREASON
CONDITION ASSIGNMENT DAVID MISCAVIGE” by
“Plain Old Thetan” ( VERY informative reading indeed)
There’s certainly going to be some tidying up to do
AFTER this asshole has been deposed. ( Foooooool )
What’s POB going to do now? His hero/mentor is gone….
That is a great video. Thanks.
Once again, I note that the “Church” is legally required to proceed according to LRH admin tech. If it does not, it is committing a legally actionable fraud. And, “it” cannot escape from liability for fraud (including possibly being taken over by a Court Appointed Trustee) by changing its books to “based upon the works of” LRH, since that violates the Tech as well.
LRH’s Tech is quite clear on this point.
So, regardless of what the “Church” blathers along about the Universal Human Rights Declaration, it commits legally actionalble fraud by failing to follow the Tech exactly and without variation.
Corporate Scn that is.
SCN is awesome
Dan, I am so glad you got out of there!
What is indeed so horrifying,is that all the abuse – sleep deprivation, virtual starvation and malnutrition, abusive physical work, and constant overt denigration and invalidation is piled ON TOP OF the mental/emotional “brainwashing” described in my article.
It speaks to the strength of purpose of those staff that they have not all curled up with a blanket and passed on, as many of the prisoners in North Korea did.
And the purpose that keeps them alive is to help others!
Whatever Hell DM ends up in, will hardly seem sufficient. Talk about someone who really deserves “Global Retribution”!
There is an urgency about bringing that system down and getting those guys and gals out of there, isn’t there?
He might be wishing he could just step into KimJong-il’s shoes and twinkletoe right along. Wouldn’t Dave love to have some nukes?
Then he could really “handle” those pesky Ozzies:
It is. Taking one of corporate Scientology’s manufactured Public Service Announcements, and editing it to show the hypocrisy, was great and powerful.
Protip to CorpSci: If you make a bunch of human rights videos (at Golden Era) to be published by a “secular” front group like Youth for Human Rights International, don’t brag about it on your main Scientology web site.
