Here are the answers to your questions:
I worked for the GO as a GAS (Guardian Assistant Scientologist - a scientology public who does work for the GO). I did this for about 5 years off and on, early in my scientology career.I know that you used to work in the GO for many years, Panda.
I never saw it at the time but did see Intel materials and hatting materials as they applied to the work I was doing for the GO. My hatting was done on a need-to-know basis. I read the Full Hat Pack as posted by Frank in 2008, after I'd resigned from the CofS. I was surprised by how much of the material I knew.Have you ever seen this hat pack, and the technology used in the OSA investigations unit?
I was in for more than 30 yearsYou were in Scientology for 30 years, is that correct?
Yes.And you reached the level of OT 8. Is that also correct?
I'd long since rid myself of the GO/OSA mindset, even when I was still a scientologist. I'd been out of that scene for decades and always refused attempts by OSA to pull me back in. The only thing I ever did for OSA in the last 30 years was write a few letters-to-the-editor defending scientology. Standard stuff to counter bad media. As far as being a "wog"; I don't think that it's possible to unknow some things, I'm definitely much changed by my experiences in scientology. Anyone who went the route I went and thinks he isn't changed by the experience, is obviously pretending to himself.How easy has it been for you to just drop all your GO/OSA type training and responses and just become a wog again after all that?
Anything is possible but I'd be a little more circumspect than you when it comes to assuming that they've "examine(d) their cult indoctrination". I have no idea whether or not they've examined it at all.I ask because I believe it is more likely that Marty and Mike are just like all of us who have had to examine their cult indoctrination and find it very difficult to drop old habits.
The implication inherent in this statement is that you somehow think I have had some trouble with it. You're either mistaken or misinformed. As for Marty and Mike, so what? They're still scientologists.And since Marty and Mike still consider themselves Scientologists, and opinion leaders for the "real LRH Scientology", they are even less likely to drop their indoc than you are.
OK, if you say so.That's why I said what I said.
I never said that and I wonder how you arrived at that question/conclusion from anything I've said. My answer to the question you (sort of) ask is, "No."Are you saying that Marty and Mike are even better at dropping their cult indoc than the rest of us?
So there you go, I hope that helps.
I'm sorry that my comments on this thread and the CrowdSource thread are making you react in, what is to me, such an odd way, it has really surprised me.
