This is a comment written by The Oracle that I fully agree with, reblogged from the post Scientology 101 on Moving On Up a Little Higher
Scientology inc. Has Overts on the Narconon network. First of all, the staff in the Sea Org have no business managing drug issues. God knows if one of them sneaked a tablespoon of Pepto Mismol for an upset tummy it would be with hold enough to blow.
A.B.L.E. INT begged for MILLIONS of dollars of donations for Chilloco and the Narconon network. Not only did NONE of that money go towards helping the Narconon network, (they stole the donations, it went straight into CofS bank accounts although it was DEDICATED for Narconon and HELPING CHILDREN, not only did they beg for money for Narconons, they kept it for their G.I. stats at A.B.L.E. and even went into the existing Narconons and took all of their reserves! Up at A.B.L.E. Int while begging for millions in donations the execs referred to Chilloco and Narconon Network as ” A Fucking abortion”. The people in the network as “D.B.’s” yet they pimped those “D.B.’s” and those kids on drugs to squeeze millions of dollars in donations out of Church Members. They can’t tolerate anyone with a drug problem anywhere on any Church lines. The E.D. of Narconon Int has a stat of Gross Income regged from the Narconons! Any Narconon with $50.00 in reserves is expected to cough it up to A.B.L.E.! At one time Narconon Italy was the largest feeder line of new public to the Flag Land Base! A.B.L.E. squeezed every penny out of the Narconons in Italy sending E.D. Narconon Int (non Sea Org) “on tour” to get the money out of Narconon’s bank accounts while begging for donations from Members in the U.S. “for Narconon”! This is true. Patty Schwartz, the former E.D. Narconon Int will tell anyone!
Applied Scholastics? For real? Sea Org Members consider themselves “super literate” because they can look up words in a dictionary. Sea Org Staff are socially illiterate to begin with. They are wholly out of communication with Earth people. So they are socially illiterate. They would not have a clue what is going on the world. The word “literate” means:
Very well said Oracle.
Regarding the Sea Organization, this is what I have observed by and large of these people also.
This is a comment written by Grasshopper, and it captures my observations and conclusions perfectly so I want to share it with you:
“The structure of the SO, the use of messengers, and all that is fine for military organizations such as the British Navy circa 1790, but I have to say this: There is no place in Scientology for the SO. I respect the hell out of the SO members current and former who dedicated their lives to the expansion of Scientology (members who include my mother, father, and some very good friends), but it is my opinion that the SO fundamentally was a mistake, or perhaps was a pilot that should have been discontinued around 1975-1980.
The rift between SO and NSO is so huge, and the perceived difference in dedication is so severe, that it has no place in a free church. I can’t tell you the incredible invalidation I personally received at the hands of SO recruiters who basically told me I was out ethics on the whole track for not joining… when in the same breath, these idiots were recruiting bums from Skid Row to join the SO because they claimed to have never taken LSD or to have ever seen a shrink (this last was from ASHO circa 1982).
The CMO post above made me revisit my little stint in 1977, and again in 1984, as NSO staff at SO orgs, and the years since have made one thing very clear and brought into focus this one thing: Never have I seen so much incompetence married to so much arrogance as I have seen from members of the Sea Organization. NEVER.
Words of wisdom Grasshopper, words of wisdom. Your comment deserves it’s own post.
