This is a general listing of things I've noted down and confirmed for myself through the last 4-5 weeks of looking. A lot of this stuff is really easy to confirm. This is a very rudimentary list -- i.e., I haven't gone into great detail, as it is mainly for my own reference. I am trying to put together a solid package of info to show others close to me, once I announce that I want out.
Tech constantly being changed.
Contrary to statistics boasted at Scientology events, actual expansion is either nil or negative.
No real improvements made by those who've done lots of Bridge. There are those who've done lots of processing who are not able. There are those who were able already and have done lots of processing and are still able. There are those who were able already and did training and processing and now are still able.
Not being allowed to have any other opinion or look at the real activities / statistics.
Not being allowed to see or hear any other opinion. Being told it is a high crime to do so.
Confidential materials. The materials are kinda silly. People coming out and saying what the confidential materials are and the church and OTs denying it even though there is solid evidence contrary to their denials.
Org's publics donating millions to purchase and renovation "ideal orgs" instead of the orgs just becoming successful and paying for better facilities.
Several corroborated reports of physical/mental abuse at the Int level.
Missing senior execs. Seriously - where the heck are they?
Senior execs that have left the SO/Scientology -- Ronnie Miscaviage, Mike Rinder, et al.
New OT VIIs and OT VIIIs that have left Scientology.
Class VI OTs that have left Scientology.
A celebrity - Jason Beghe - that did tons of training and processing and was referred to by COB as "poster child" for Scn - left Scientology.
I'd like others thoughts on this, and perhaps links to where the best sources of verifiable info are. Or just general comments -- whatever!
