The current wave of damaging attack led by GOING CLEAR and AFTERMATH as well as the books from disaffected execs all have a shelf life significantly shorter than 3 billion and the SO slaves.

    Attention now shifts to Asia and Russia in the quest for new victims. In 5 to 10 years when the 10 to 15-year-olds of today are approached by the 'faithful' here in the USA who warns them? Is current decline temporary?

    ORGS across the US, Europe, and Australia are failing & income is drying up, but 3/4k virtual slaves run the 'church' for $3.00 a day per person for food in housing internally maintained. Return on 3 Billion invested can sustain that core indefinitely, and from what I read here that core cannot be reached with the truth.

    DM the COB/SOB will live in luxury as dictator for as long as he wishes OR until someone comes up with a plan to remove him from power. Until that happens DM is a CLEAR and Present Danger to someone's sons and daughters - good gullible kids seeking direction with a will to do good. How do we free the slaves and protect future victims? DM's capacity to damage lives lives on. Is there nothing more pro-active to be done?
    This is good food for thought. There's a potential for the co$ to maintain a static balance, if not grow in new geographic areas, despite the forces against it. Hopefully, DM will continue to misplay his evil cards and lose more staff than he can recruit.

    You have to keep in mind that Miscavige's Scientology cult isn't about clearing the planet. He's not interested in membership, as long as their are enough dupes to fill Sea Org berths in his immediate vicinity.

    The purpose of modern-day Scientology is to extract money from the 'whales'. The whales are schmoozed during visits to celebrity centres where they receive their psychic blow-job ("auditing") and they attend stage-managed events and get sent news of vulture ministers doing silly things in disaster areas.

    Scientology makes its money from donations from the whales. Whether a few thousand publics buy a set of books or pay for an occasional sub-standard psychic blow-job of their own is of no real interest: far too much hassle, compared to simply creating a new level called "Super-dooper Platinum Diamond Humanitarian" and raking in $250,000 for the cost of a certificate in a tacky frame.

    Members keep doing awkward things like getting pregnant, getting cancer, having family members blow, getting arrested... far simpler to keep Scientology small. As long as there's enough members left to make events appear somewhat attended, and to staff celebrity centres, DM's not bothered about the undeniable shrinkage of the Scientology UFO cult.

    that sounds like an effort to keep Pat from speaking out. Got any proof of what you say? Namely last you saw him he was on coke and alcohol?

    I suppose he could do the sweat-out narconon program then come out with a success story under 30 million words. That might give OSA some problems in approving it.

    The membership of the cult is like the Titanic once it left the surface.

    Even downtown Clearwater has started to look rather devoid of SO uniforms compared to what it was in years past.

    But, hey, look at the bright side : number of dust particles off old films is straight up & vertical !
    Ain't life grand !

    Over the years, I've come to really believe there is here & now . . . . . . . only.

    This sounds reasonable. I just hope the numbers keep going down.

    It would seem as their ranks shrink as drastically have they have that the point will come when they can't really adequately staff the orgs enough to keep the doors open.

    Big printing presses have to have something to print & people to run the joint.

    So internal staff is - or will become - an issue.

    A big deal is - also - that' raw meat' coming through the front door. While there is currently cash in the coffers & whales pop down with big bucks - the hordes are no longer in the orgs buying services.

    Just seems the cash flow has got to be down drastically & there will be a point they can't afford to keep the show on the road.

    How close it ?

    Or am I delusional & things are going just swell to keep the leader in the style of the rich & famous he loves to have ?
