    All true, but the audio story is told by a man with first-hand knowledge, and many details are not widely known.

    Jon Zegel Talks about Scientology


    Three talks in the series.

    The three John Zegel cassette recordings were passed around in the underground in the 80’s
    in LA and created a big stir. They give an insight into the inner workings of the COS in the 70’s
    and 80’s.

    Zegel released three tapes critical of the COS before he was silenced as part of a lawsuit
    with the COS. Zegel then recorded a fourth tape and recanted much what he had said.
    Make of that what you will. John Zegel was Mark Yeager’s father in law, I believe.

    The fourth talk, where Jon Zegel caves and retracts everything. Those who don't want to endure the entire recording - which is pretty disgusting - can jump to around 45:00 of the recording towards the end.

    Is it just me or does this sound like some one got bought? Admittedly I only made 20 minutes through this drivel, and skipped a bit, still blithering nonsense, irritating and now irritated *scrubs brain with wire brush*

    I tried to listen again, I. Am. An. Idiot. :puke:

    i go now.

    Zegal started up his own Field group . He established what he named "The Clear Center". I audited there for a time, until COS got to Jon. Jon had a super Library that he had collected. He had most of LRH's tapes, including a full set of SHSBC tapes, and the Class V111 tapes.:omg:
    Those were the tapes that were loaned to David Mayo to copy and use in his Santa Barbara center.:yes:
    Jon caved. He had a new Wife, and a future to look forward to.
    The tapes that he made and released to the Field were an excellent source for those who were interested in the hierarchy of COS.

    Yep. Disgusting. Jon got married to a fairly well known Artist, and she was not having any COS business marring her career. Jon caved.
    He did a lot of damage to the new management before they got to him and paid him off.
    Just lissen to the first 3 tapes. They were full of valuable info about the structure of COS.

    Part one is available to download in the following ways, and I'd suggest MP3. That format should play on any phone. Ignore the graphics, if you want to.

    Do you know what became of Jon Zegel? Did his marriage to his new wife last?

    I saw Jon Zegel in July 1985. He was morbidly obese and, IIRC, married already.

    I'm sorry, but the idea that a beautiful artist, etc., would appear, and want to marry him, and also insist that he kneel before Miscavige in an extreme act of self abasement, seems far fetched.

    People have settled with Scientology, but none have gone as far as this.

    Nibs (Ron Jr.) at least had his Down syndrome youngest son to worry about. He didn't settle for himself. He knew he was dying at the time he settled and was concerned about his family. He signed papers asserting a variety of falsehoods, which is pretty bad, but he didn't make a voice recording (at least not in 1986) that we know about.

    What Zegel did was extraordinary.

    If the marriage lasted, then we'd know that, at least, it's likely that it wasn't some sort of "operation."

    And Lafayette left the dead body of his (Nibs) family friend in the back yard. There's some motivation there.

    Hiya cakemaker. One of Nibs' children (now a mature adult, obviously) told me during a very long brunch together, that the first time they saw blood - they were very young - was when they discovered a freshly murdered family friend in the backyard while they were playing. They told me many more things over the 3 hours we were together that day, but a Hubbard-ordered murder to command influence over Ron Jr. is pretty significant. Worth mentioning.

    How do you know Hubbard ordered it? I'm sorry, but it sounds like BS. I don't disagree they saw a dead person and it was possibly a hit, but attributing it to Hubbard? It sounds like paranoia runs in the family's blood.
