In Sydney, in the last nine months (as many of you are aware), there has been a breakdown in the ‘hold’ which the CofS has had on its ‘followers’, and an exodus from the ‘ranks’. Much has contributed this - There was the ‘basics evolution’, Anonymous, some realistic anti-Scn media, pro-active reach to those still “in” from a couple of us now “out”, and a major continuation of foot bullets from the CofS itself. It’s gone like an exponential curve, and especially of late, people are leaving in droves. - There are literally hundreds of Scios in Sydney and ANZO who have broken from the ranks of the CofS, in the last nine months. - The vast majority of these, are still under the radar, but their allegiance to the church has gone, and they are on the other side of the fence. - The vast majority of these people, haven’t told their Scio friends where they are at, for fear of disconnection etc. - Many though, have communicated to their friends and have directed them to this site and others on the net, while staying under the radar of the CofS. - With the recent ‘exodus’, the screws on those still “in”, are being tightened more than ever. This has been the catalyst for many to get the courage to look, especially when they’ve had a tip from a friend to do so. - People move around and have their own networks. It’s spread to other states here in Aussie, as well as overseas. - Today we have orgs so desperate, that they are now savagely tightening the screws on their 'new' public (in addition to their crew, staff, and 'seasoned' public). - The “smear campaigns” on a few of us have been so off the wall that they have just acted to reveal the true colours of the CofS. In the last few weeks, I ’ve received numerous calls from people I haven’t seen or heard from for years, after they were ‘briefed’ on what I was supposed to have done years ago prior to Scn. Naturally (as I’ve done previously with such calls), I’ve directed them to the thread here on ESMB for the real scoop. In this instance, they’ve discovered that my pc data has been used and twisted by the CofS to suit their own ends, and have discovered many other truths on the board at the same time. I can't count how many times this has happened over the last six months. - There is so much info now (local and international) and so much support available for the taking (ESMB being a shining star, in this regard). - Anon Sydney has kept doing their thing, and the full extent of their impact is still coming to light. - The vast majority of past “players” in the AO, are no longer playing. Those ‘leech like’ individuals who have gotten credit for the work of others, are still around holding onto their status, but without the “workers” I can’t see them holding onto such “status” for too much longer. - The Sydney orgs (Class V’s and AOSH) are now mostly reliant on overseas income, and the majority of its public are Asians whose literacy level in English is not good – Not exactly staff or crew material in an English speaking country. Income and support have decreased markedly in recent months. The CofS has clearly been its own worst enemy. It has presented so many opportunities for those outside of the CofS to contribute to its demise. In ANZO, a couple of people from different positions and with different activities, have taken that opportunity, and that has helped accelerate things to a point where the demise here is now seemingly happening by itself and at an incredible rate - In any area it may take a bit of assistance to get the ball rolling, but once that ball starts rolling there's no stopping it.
