Yes, it's a "well duh!" for most of us, but it sure ISN'T the party line of the COS, who are holding on to the O/W hidden crimes falsity for dear life...think of the income for making all those people do series of sec checks? Ron essentially admitted the invalidity of his supposedly infallible "tech" on this...and that if it were widely known, it would invalidate and undermine people's confidence in Scientology processing, and cause a decline in income and "growth". So mum's the word about it. Yeah, that really helps people's cases, doesn't it?
He KNEW it didn't work, knew it was a wrong indicator, and ordered it hushed it up and used anyway. Rather than do the right thing and correct the tech.
Liar, liar, pants on fire! Money-grubbing scamming sociopathic con artist!!!
On a serious note, how many people have really suffered because in some way they bought into this false idea and false self perception that they were Suppressive, or degraded beings, or failures, or criminals as they contemplated leaving COS. Not that the organization of COS failed them, which was the truth!!! How many suicides have there been over this...? How many broken marriages? Kids disconnected and raised away from their parents, etc. etc.
This is a huge overt casting a very long shadow that goes directly back to RON, and should shake doubters and "true believers", who may try to rationalize it away by saying it is all a lie, into waking up more fully and sooner than if this event were not publicized.
That's the main point, imho of why this is important data.
For this information to be widely distributed, well I see it as a huge BIG WIN for humankind against a lying manipulative money-grubbing criminal organization masquerading as a religion known as the "Church of Scientology".
