- 1. How did you first become acquainted with the Church of
- From a free personality test
- 2. What initially appealed to you about scientology?
- The kindness of the Div 6 staff and I had a great curiosity for the knowledge they had.
- 3. Were there problems in your life that you thought
scientology would address?
- Yes, I was depressed and lonley, generally at a very low ebb
- 4. Did you see, experience, or hear about things that didn't
seem right while you were in the Church of Scientology? What were
they, and what convinced you to set aside your feelings?
- All was well until I joined the SO and after a time I noticed/found:
-Acts of verbal abuse and intimidation from the officers.
-Poor living conditions.
-Over worked staff.
-Miscavage rewriting the Tech.
-General managerial sneakieness.
-So much out tech from uplines it was untrue.
I put up with it because we were in the same boat clearing the planet. On the whole things were ok, I managed to be productive and to get on, I found no great hardship. I just noticed things out of the corner of my eye which mostly I put down to their out ethics or some such but over time these things added up and I began to evaluate them. and gradually my purpose fell away leading me to the point where after the third month of 3 hours sleep a night in an office chair far away from home I was fighting for my own survival between endless cups of coffeee and abuse from staff and uplines alike dispite being upstat.
- 5. Why did you choose to stay in the Church of
- It was to get up the bridge plain and simple.
- 6. Were you staff or public? If staff, was it at a mission or
an org? Were you ever in the Sea Org or OSA? Which unit? If not on
staff, did you ever volunteer to 'help out'?
- I started as staff then became Class V and eventually SO
- 7. Why did you leave the Church of Scientology? Was there a
- There were many. I was on an out tech mission (on my own) in a hostile org with no end in sight. In the orgs disorganised archives I found old GO documents and orders which spoke of a difficult time for the CoS. Also old adverts for the fabled Superpower Rundown which we were all told was new. I read through all this stuff and got a picture of a history of Scientology which was at odds with the official one. Later I was to discover more and more violations of Tech by my superiors which eventually placed me in an impossible situation where I had no other ethical choice than to route out as they were following out tech orders from Int leaving me with no recourse.
- 8. Do you think the Church of Scientology needs to change some
of its practices? If so, what should be changed? How did those
practices affect your life?
- The CoS should be totally dismantled as an entity and its data obsorbed into the mainstream, if there is any value in the tech it will survive in a capacity where it can be of use to all openly. This fascistic structure we know today is an abberation exploited by monsters who feed on the hope, good will and dediction of brilliant if somewhat short sighted people.
- 9. If the items you listed in the previous question were
changed, would you consider rejoining or staying in the Church of
Scientology? If so, why?
- When what I want comes to pass there will be nothing left to join.
- 10. Any additional comments you would like to make?
- Since leaving the CoS I have looked into in Psychology, NLP, Philosophy, Neuroscience and other fields. This has lead me to discover that the 'Wog world' has far suppassed LRH Tech interms of results and credibility. Dianetics held a little truth which was already known in the 50's anyway and the OT levels are just a confidence trick which may have had something in amongst all the space opera nonsense but since have been watered down to the point of uselessness.
