News Flash. The real action in the Indie 500 occurred at Steve Hall’s Scientology-cult.com. Brad Halsey roared out of the house!
I am gonna’ try and keep this write-up short and sweet.
I was on staff for D.C. Fdn. from 1987 to 1997 (was on tech posts the entire time).
I trained as an Outer Org Trainee at FLAG as part of the Class 8 Senior C/S training program from 1992 to 1996, an Int program that drew 135 people from around the world begining in 1992.
I was there at FLAG when the Golden Age of Tech was released in 1996. At that time only 2 of 135 people had completed that Class 8 Senior C/S training program. That program was a collossal failure at that point in time, based purely on that one stat.
I saw that it was going to add two more years to what had already been a 4-year stay, so I quit and went home.
Can you imagine training for 4 years straight on a Sea Org schedule, where you never get a day off because you are overdue on course? And then on top of that, you now have to do the whole Golden Age of Tech lineup? OMG man, they defeated me with that one, for sure.
Two months later I am back at my org with every intention to finish up my contract, and a golden rod comes down from Flag that says all my previous certs were cancelled and that I have to train from Student Hat all the way up again. At that point I routed out. I was done with it.
I was already Word Clearer interned and Class 4 interned with about 1500 hours in the chair as an auditor when I arrived at Flag for higher training, and at the time I left had completed the full theory of the BC and all auditing requirements on Level O.
I can’t tell you how frustrating it was knowing that all the while I was there, they only made it harder and harder to complete.
It’s just plain, flat-out suppression.
Net result: “make it so nobody can get through.”
By obvious design, Miscavige has now made it so you can’t get up either side of the Bridge:
1. Who has the money to pay Org prices for auditing? (especially with the insistence nowadays that you give it all to the IAS in exchange for nothing in return.)
2. Even if you can afford training, who wants to be on training courses for the rest of their lives, never to even find the damned Auditor’s chair? OMG, LRH would just be aghast if he saw today’s lineup of “prerequisites” to Auditor training.
Anybody who cannot see that this is a blatant effort to KILL OFF all Auditor training is just blind as a damned bat!
And if you want to see a very nice presentation of statistical analysis over the past several decades, I highly recommend you go to the site called “Friends of LRH” and read the series there called “What Happened to Training.”
Wow, is that a good write-up! Especially from my own point of view of having lived it and been the effect of it.
There are so many things wrong in Scientology today that have all been so well documented on this site and others, that I need not go into any additional detail on any of that.
We all know how wrong it’s all gone.
Bottom line – there is a raging SP named David Miscavige at the top and he’s your WHY for all of it.
Thanks to the advent of the Internet, there is now tons of ample evidence, you just have to open your eyes to it.
There’s only one thing to do and that’s just choose whose side you’re on.
Please add my name to the Indie 500 list.
