    Scientology, just like the Ebola virus, is an international problem, and needs to be addressed at that level.

    This entire PR meltdown with the threat of a Federal investigation might be the perfect opportunity the COS (Crimewave of Scientology) has been waiting & looking for!

    Consider this: For a very long time, the COS has been phasing out and underplaying its original goal, purpose and activity--AUDITING & TRAINING! They have been "gradiently" de-emphasizing the OT powers (the Grade Chart no longer boasts miracles but only some bland generic rhetorical mush).

    They haven't been training auditors either. The legendary SHSBC, once the centerpiece of all Scientology training--for 50% of the gains!) is no longer even being delivered.

    What is emphasized in all ways and all times is now DONATIONS.

    IAS donations.

    Ideal Org donations.

    Way to Happiness donations.

    LRH books for libraries donations.

    International Dissemination Campaigns donations.

    The COS is now the COD: Church of Donations.

    So, now they have an opportunity. Close down the delivery of any auditing and training. Call a huge event and deliver a rousing briefing about how the planet is "not safe enough yet" to deliver Clear and OT levels.

    Sound crazy?! LOL.

    Well, that's the reason OT VIII was held back for decades.

    And that's the exact reason given why a massive ship (Freewinds) had to be purchased--because it was "not safe enough" on land to deliver OT VIII.

    Jeez, that's weird--they told Scientologists that AOs had to be built because it wasn't safe enough to deliver OT III and above in a regular org.

    But, then, OT IX and OT X cannot be delivered because "it's not safe enough" on this planet. For DECADES, Scientologists have been saddled with the Sisyphean task--to expand all orgs in the world up to "Old St. Hill Size!"

    So, maybe it's "not safe enough" to deliver the Grade Chart now. Maybe Scientology has to raise 5 billion dollars (or whatever number is favorably answered in standard surveys). Five billion dollars becomes the magic number of dollars that is required in order to "make it safe enough" to deliver grades, Clearing and OT levels. Because "we are under attack" dear parishioners. It is the apocalyptic battle of SPs vs THETA BEINGS. We must win at all costs!

    The "costs" are (naturally) to be borne by parishioners.

    Then Scientology can fully become what it has been struggling to become for decades. A pure DONATION RELIGION. Everything great in the world can be done "if we only had the money to do it!"

    And all the evil in the world only prevails because "we don't have enough money" to fight them!

    It's a perfect Orwellian vision of endless war that can never be won, because it is not the plan nor intention to ever win. It's an ecosystem predicated on a forever enemy that must be hated and fought to the death!

    Fortunately, all the fighting is done by loyal staff members willing to sacrifice their lives. All parishioners have to do is write some checks from the safety of their living rooms, without even missing their favorite tv show!

    Pure donations! That's the answer to all Scientology's problems. It solves their ruin--that they never had any Clear or OT states to deliver.

    ^^^^^ This wouldn't surprise me if CoS did just that, or at least threatened to shut down services so as to increase the urgency of the remaining members to:

    1) Donate money!
    2) Donate more money!
    3) Borrow money so they can donate more money!
    4) Take massive action to counter Season Two (and maybe three ;) of Leah's show. I expect these shows to generate more and more outrage amongst the general public, and generate momentum for what Leah's wanting, a federal investigation.

    With so much on the line for CoS and Miscavige, I wouldn't be surprised if they were considering using a Portland type Crusade using the remaining Scientologists to fight for their "religious freedom", in Washington D.C. or elsewhere.

    When Leah and other whistleblowers expose the truth about CoS criminality and abuses the CoS tries to characterize these individuals as bigots and their actions as an attack upon their religious freedom.

    Should they use this though it will backfire to the point where the whole episode will end up on the Stupid Thread, because it will cause the very things they fear to happen to happen even faster.

    R-Factor to OSA:
    Exposing the truth about your organizations criminal activity and abuses and demanding an investigation isn't bigotry nor is it an attack on religious freedom. It's a mission for justice, and it will not fail. When is NOW the right time to jump ship?

    An excerpt from a new post from Mike Rinder (Scientology's Aftermath, Part 2):


    The truth is that there are a lot of frustrated law enforcement people who know there is something rotten in Denmark. And THAT is precisely why Miscavige’s message focuses on being a “religious institution.” The barriers thrown up by the First Amendment to prosecution are daunting – but they are not insurmountable.

    Pedophile priests acting holier than thou and hiding behind the walls of the church got away with it for a long time. But not forever.

    Neither will scientology.

    When your “religious mission” results in abuse, pain and shattered lives, it is a mission that needs to be reined in, no matter how loudly you shout that you are “saving mankind.”

    "Tomorrow, Leah Remini and Mike Rinder launch season two of Scientology and the Aftermath with an episode which is going to eclipse everything they’ve done before. (Yes, we’ve seen it, and we’re going to tell you more about it tomorrow morning.) Once again, social media will be swamped with people expressing shock at what they’re seeing on their television screens, and this place will gain curious new onlookers and commenters."

    Yeah, for you Americans. The rest of us have to wait for Rutube which will probably be a few days later.
