2010 – Miscavige’s BOLT FROM THE BLUE

Plain Old Thetan brings us some news from the Mission Network that is hard to believe:  In 2010, six Scientology Missions in the Los Angeles area were closed or downsized.


2010 – Miscavige’s BOLT FROM THE BLUE1

In THE AUDITOR No. 25, LRH says: But man had no inkling whatever of Dianetics. None. This was the bolt from the blue.

Miscavige has no inkling whatever of Dianetics and Scientology.

2010 contained a bolt from the blue for DM, even if he doesn’t realize it.

In 2010, SIX Scientology Missions in the Los Angeles area closed or downsized.

This stat was NOT in the 2011 New Year’s Event. Hmm.

Instead, the 2011 New Year’s Event segment on the Mission and Field Groups gave little actual information. There was no information about Field Groups or Field Auditors or I-HELP. And the only information about Missions was the information about Odessa Mission, some of which I covered in my article 2011 – The Year of the PhoneyGraph. The Ukraine mission was the only Mission detailed in the 2011 New Year’s Event.

But now we know why U.S. Missions were silently overlooked in the event.

DM’s closing fist of control has let the Missions slip through his fingers.

And now they’re gone.

And one of the reasons the Missions are closing or collapsing is that their pcs and staff are being ripped off.

Of the six collapsed or closed Missions in L.A., I know of one that lost its only Class IV auditor to the Los Angeles Model Idyllic Org. And I know of one other that lost its Class VI auditors (plural) to the Los Angeles Model Idyllic Org. Personnel rip-off is, of course, off policy.

LRH clearly states in lecture 7101C23 THE ORG OFFICER AND HIS RESOURCES — PART I that the solution to not enough auditors is to go to the local Auditor’s Association and hire some. But field auditing has been destroyed, and with it, the local Auditor’s Associations.

Now, one could train one’s own auditors. But that depends on the Golden Age of Gack being able to turn out auditors.

But no, DM’s solution is to disestablish the area’s Missions. That, of course, is cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face2.

If an org depends on feeder lines from local orgs and missions, disestablishing and unmocking field auditing and missions only results in the collapse of the local org. Well, if you were looking to maximize the damage, then well done, Davey!

We can only hope that the consequences strike DM between the eyes like a bolt from the blue. Now that’s a severe reality adjustment.

1 bolt from the blue, a sudden and entirely unforeseen event.

2 cut off one’s nose to spite one’s face, to create a disadvantage to oneself through one’s own spiteful action.

I can well imagine the amount of pressure and stress put on the CLO/FOLO staff to come up with resources to staff the latest incarnation of “Ideal Org” in Los Angeles. The ‘solution’ of taking trained staff from one place to prop up another has reached all new highs of criminality. I can imagine a time when there will be so few resources that they are simply moved around from one org to another for the photo ops. That could be done for a while since they wouldn’t really need to be used to actually AUDIT someone since there are no new public flooding in…anywhere.
So sick and sad and non-confronted by those still holding on to a dead church that abandoned them a long time ago and limps along with only smoke and mirrors and their foolishly wasted theta postulates. One day they will wake up and like the German people after WWII, realize how badly they were lied to.
We are here for them and I will say again, you are not alone and there is truth and standard ethics, tech and policy outside of the travesty called CofS. It is delivered by all those people who walked away just so they COULD have, learn, and apply STANDARD LRH TECH.

Good job, POT!

Interesting Data. Perhaps DM’s coppor grounding rods are a counter-measure to inhibit such an earth shattering revelation!

lunamoth  on January 14th, 2011

What has been and is still going on with the church – poaching staff from one organization to prop up another – is the manpower equivalent of borrowing on one credit card to make payments on another one.

That’s an act of desperation and is the phase right before it all goes down the drain.

Perhaps we’ve placed too much importance on how much money miscavige has squirreled away in his “war chest.” There may indeed be billions of dollars in the church’s bank accounts, but they are hemorrhaging people, and we know that it is people who make a church. When we think of dm’s power being represented by his money we buy into his view of the world as primarily (exclusively?) material. All the money in the world will not preserve power and your public image when the churchs you claim to control are literally empty and the sound of crickets can be heard across the land.

Another lucid article, POT, thanks!
@Lunamoth…brilliantly stated, as usual.

New here, just followed a link on WWP. Not a criticism but I’m surprised a list of the six being counted isn’t included.

Touchstone  on January 20th, 2011

A list of the six might be helpful. Here in early 2011, the Upland, CA Mission (San Bernardino County) just had a recent serious downgrading from a nice corner store to an obscure strip mall in an unincorporated section with next-to-no foot traffic.

I suspect the downsizing is not restricted to LA. Here in the San Francisco area, a former winner of the mission birthday game has a) moved from it’s home of aforementioned winning and b) has limited hours posted open 3 days a week.

I will attempt to check out the SoMa mission, moved from it’s very nice 530 Howard to 566 Folsom. I don’t know when they moved.

The follwing mission has vanished from the “official” list, too.

The web also notes that Costa Mesa and Buena Ventura are closed.

[...] I know that the L.A. area lost several Missions due to frantic cannibalism from the Ideal Org activity in that area. (/?p=1484) [...]

Tatiana Baklanova  on August 24th, 2011

Dear POT,I have read so far a lot of great articles of yours. And I want to say you something. I am really sorry that I was blaming you rashly for hiding your name. You may not even remember that but I do and apologies. Because I see that if to write under the nick-name or not to write at all were the only choices you had, – that was the very right choice you made. I still wish you were fighting with an open visor, but it is not my place to decide or even judge. I will wait patiently until you feel safe to say your name.
With much respect,
Tatiana.

plainoldthetan  on August 26th, 2011

Tatiana: Understood. No hard feelings. I needed to do something about the situation without exposing my friends to the wrath of Davey.
