    I dunno, is 8-C with ARC and KRC counts?
    Add O/W write-ups, KR parties, E-Metered Ethics
    Checks, Confessions and Sec Checks, mandatory
    Success Stories, list goes on and on.
    All with a promise of Clear and OT states.
    Is that a trick question?!

    QUESTION: Are Scientologists being psychologically manipulated by their Church?


    ANSWER: My senior said to come here and say no. Then I am to report back with any wins if I was successfully able to enturbulate any of the people here.

    Obviously they are, Roland, as you know and we know, and even the outside the CofS Scientologists, and Marty Rathbun, will say, so what's the point in asking?

    Are you bored?

    Oh, and Roland, Scientology is not really a "Church."

    Are you trying to psychologically manipulate us - just for fun? :eyeroll:

    I was just wondering why the City of London Corporation decided they were "for the public good" and give them 270K GBP per year of the general UK public's money.

    Mostly Roland just trolls here. Sometimes he engages in rational discussion. He also does very valuable real-world work in documenting Scn scams (like getting inappropriate discounts and rate relief) and presenting the info to relevant authorities.

    Scientology’s manipulations often involve secrecy and detachment. The nature of the upper levels is hidden from Scientology staff and public so that by the time he’s reached OT3 he is either unable to think for himself or dependent on Scientology relationships for his very livelihood or social network.



    Critical facts and opinions are also hidden. In the old days, it was easy: take away their TVs and families, and give them a new set of friends. The internet, with anonymous at the fore, has changed this dramatically. Countless critics are just one click away from anyone without Scientology’s anti-wog software. As the words of Scientology’s critics become more public, the manipulations are less effective.



    New customers are very hard to come by, and existing customers are more difficult to keep. The old way doesn’t work anymore. To survive, Scientology must do a complete makeover, starting with the RPF, disconnection, forced abortions, child neglect, and, dare I say it, a “new and improved” approach to OT3 and beyond. In light of KSW and the need for credibility, that will be challenging.
