OMG, that is plagiarized from my autobiography! LOLBefore getting into Scientology, I was a rebel. I did a lot of drugs, I'll admit, and got into some trouble. I hung out with the "cool kids" that weren't buying a bunch of BS. That's what I thought Scientology was too! Sheesh.
lololololololololololololololololololololololScientology turned a bunch of hippies and rebellious folks into dullards. Walk into any org during an event (with the exception of maybe CC INT which is its own other kind of world) and you'll see a crowd of overweight, pasty white, embarrassingly dorky people who have lost their way.
And those were the OTs! The Clears and PCs were not as hip.
Hence, scieno-nerds across the planet being overheard saying things like: "That's not okay to invalidate my case. You need to get your ethics in and start flowing power and theta to me...on this planet." (That last part about 'on this planet' always help add some gravitas and altitude to stupid shit)Some have forgotten why they ever came. Some were never there for truth in the first place but simply for some self improvement. Some found refuge in a group of people who were obligated to validate them where they otherwise might be misfits in the real world. Some got in through WISE and many of those were status seekers.
The brutal truth. But, something is wrong with my case because I still feel like breaking the mouse of every Indie Scientologist who talks about their fellow (CoS) Scientologists "drinking the cool aid". CRUNCH! ("Oh sorry, I didn't mean to throw your mouse down and stamp on it.")I'm now sure that "finding truth" was/is not the central theme for getting into Scientology so when some people leave, truth will not be what they seek as they never wanted it in the first place.
