I have good reason to believe DM will take his next strategic step in releasing OT IX and X this LRH Birthday event.
The next step in preparation for this release is changing the requirements for Saint Hill Size orgs.
This is an important matter, for you might think it would be impossible or at least a very difficult thing for DM to change one of the best known -- at least to staff -- LRH policies. But not so: He already briefed Milano 'Ideal Org' staff on this strategy as a 'pilot' to see how they react, and management has been briefed and nobody seemed to have any great objection to it.
How can this be?
Pretty easy: Purpose is above policy, so DM is taking the angle of what the purpose of 339R and Saint Hill size is: To get all orgs in the world above the make-break point. Combined with personal incentive to staff members, it will succeed, and that is exactly how he has it laid out: The new basis for Saint Hill size is going to be staff pay.
The story is long and boring and goes back to when DM visited Saint Hill and took a look at the SH student enrollment records from the SH boom days... (This is undoubtedly the way he is going to start his presentation.) But, basically, the end result is going to be a whole different set of requirements, radically lower than the current requirements for Saint Hill size, and staff will be happy as the key requirement is '' the same or slightly better pay for staff as the average wage for a similar job in the wog world.'' What staff member would not vouch for that, after making virtually no income for decades working for Scientology, but rather having been forced to moonlight and sacrifice whatever else they made otherwise? I don't think anyone is going to be asking 'is this based on LRH?' especially since DM, true to style, is going to make sure the 'applicable' LRH references will be a central part of the briefing. 'Applicable' won't include the current standards for SH size.
It is probably clear for most people why is this the next big strategic step toward releasing OT IX and X: The last major prerequisite, and the worst bugged one, to be filled is 'all orgs in the world the size of old Saint Hill.'
So we should shortly see DM's debug: Change the requirements.
I am rather certain the release of OT IX and X will be timed with the 20th anniversary of Freewinds. Whether it can be pulled off by that time is a different question, but it is without question DM's intention. It has been in the making for several years. With recent events, this is a very likely thing to be implemented at this time.
The implementation includes changing the finance system for orgs to make this possible.
If not part of the public event, it might be a 'special briefing for staff only,' in which case we won't see it featured. That might be a preferable way for DM, as then a 'miraculous' expansion could be made to take place, with all orgs suddenly going 'SH size' without the public even knowing about the change in requirements. DM could then also make it look like Scientologist had suddenly risen up to the occasion due to an 'external enemy,' to try and motivate the public. Yes, that too is predictable as the sun rising.
Either way, I think this data should be disseminated broadly before the event so that as many Scientologist and staff know of it beforehand.
One of two things could happen as a result: 1) Any Scientology public who hears of it first from outside sources would be less likely to fall for DMs crap on March 13th and have the cognition that the outside world knows more than the average staff member or 2) DM would have to give up on that strategy or at least radically modify it or delay its implementation. Would be a win either way.
