GAT II: The final demise of the mission network and field groups

A mission staff member slipped us scans of this list of materiel that are to be turned in by staff and parishioners to their local org’s bookstore officer or directly to the Bridge publications Returns Officer for disposal.

According to my source, the “Returns Officer”  doesn’t issue refunds or credit. He’s just a garbage man.





Note that at the top of the list is that all Mark VII Quantum E-meters (and their predecessors) are to be “turned in” to the org BSO or Pubs Org “disposal officer”.

Now it’s time for a reality check.

The “claim” made by Miscavige is that there are 10,030 orgs, missions, and groups.

So let’s say that each org, mission or group has three meters.

All auditors are supposed to have two meters. And at a place like a mission or field group, there’s a course supervisor/word clearer.  So three is a good number to pull out of the air.

Let’s also say that every one of those Mark VII Quantum E-meters cost its owner $3250.

That means that this “order” from Int management is for good loyal dedicated scientologists to destroy or dispose of $97,792,500 just in meters.

That’s a capital loss of $97.8 million dollars.

Of course, the “church” is operating under the delusion that those 30,090 meters will be replaced at $5000 each. Which artificially boosts Gross Booksales to $150,450,000. For a net profit of $52,657,500.

But I’m not deluded. I know that the report of 10,030 orgs, missions, and groups is a BOFFL. Big Ol’ Fat Friggin’ Lie.

And I also know that no one in their right mind is going to turn a $3250 meter over to the “church” for destruction.

And I also know that no mission or mission staff member can afford to replace their working-fine-thank-you meter with a glitzy piece of over-marketed over-restrictive Easy-Bake Warehoused electronics for $5000.

Especially when there’s no pcs or public or co-auditors to use it on.

Apparently SMI is telling Mission Holders that they must not and cannot use pre-Mark-VIII-Ultra E-meters in their facilities or face the revocation of their Mission Charters.

Guess which choice most Mission Holders are going to take?

Like GAT I, this new news about the true cost of GAT II come two months after the event containing its announcement.

I remember sitting in the GAT I announcement event, thinking to myself: “This is cool. Now new auditors won’t have to take as long as I took to get classified.”

Two months later, the facts of Miscavige’s GAT I came and hit everyone smack in the face.

Every existing auditor had to re-train on GAT I. That wasn’t in the event!

The membership list of the ASHO Foundation Auditor’s Association dropped from 1740 to 30 in a few months.

Normally, I’d say that was an example of the Law of Unintended Consequences in action.

But the avalanche of “Unintended Consequences” pouring out of the “command intention” of Miscavige over the past 20 years definitively demonstrates one thing.

Miscavige’s “consequences” are anything but unintended.

Oh, yeah. What’s on this list that surprises you?

What’s on this list that offends you?

What’s on this list that outrages you?

This provides conclusive evidence that the Mark 8 Easy-Bake oven meter is not selling.

I think this may be the tipping point we have been waiting for. The most heavily indoctrinated cult member will wake up when the first round of declares are issued for noncompliance to this order.

When the declares do not deter staff and public from using their existing meters to meet production targets, I can easily see squads of SO enforcers sweeping through orgs and missions to seize Mark VII meters from staff and public.

Something wicked this way comes and it will suck the life out of every org and mission.

Excellent leak! Thank you for this information.

DO WANT a copy of the new Grade Chart!

eddieVroom  on February 24th, 2014

Even the *wires* are obsolete?..

PlainOldThetan  on February 24th, 2014

Silly wabbit…the old leads don’t match the COLOR of the Mark Ultra VIII E-meters!

And the E-meter cases are obsolete, too. For the same reason…

Bulgravian Police Department  on February 24th, 2014

Holy Hubbard for some reason this leak is more shocking than others, even though as a human rights violation it is of course near the bottom of the list.
I guess I would have made a really bad Scientologist since I hate losing MEST, given how hard it is to earn money in this universe.

Jane Doe  on February 24th, 2014

Besides all the excellent comments you made in the article POT and David St Lawrence, the hair on the back of my neck stood up when I read your article. I thought it couldn’t get any worse, and it just did. He is getting rid of the evidence that he altered the tech by burning books, course packs, and the Bridge Grade Chart chart. Now the young teens he recruits won’t have any history to go back to to see what LRH actually wrote and what was later changed by DM. This is diabolical and makes the book, “1984” look like child’s play. Maybe DM is Xenu reincarnated, or Hilter or Stalin or or or…

Jane Doe  on February 24th, 2014

P.S. Don’t turn in your Mark VII Meters! Don’t do it. Just don’t turn them in. If you must, sell them or give them to Indies. Or keep them yourselves cuz you’ll be needing them out here in the fresh air where the light of truth disinfects the lies and rot.

OSAHater  on February 24th, 2014

What outraged me was that you’re supposed to turn in your troubleshooter AND ALL SCIENTOLOGY CORRECTION LISTS IT CONTAINS. And remote tone arms. And spare leads. And E-meter cases.

I originally bought two Mark VII meters at $3250, then had them upgraded to quantums for $800 each. Then I bought two troubleshooters at $750 each. Spare leads at $45.00 a set. “Upgraded” copper-beryllium cans for $350 a set. Two remote tone arms at $600 each. Grand total for JUST PLAIN OLD ME and JUST MY METER-STUFF? $11,590!

And the “church” thinks I’m going to give them $12,000 of stuff to destroy? I’m *so* outahere.

OT8  on February 24th, 2014

OMG this takes the cake! I’m just picturing my ex field auditor handing in all 4 of her Quantums and her Mark V along with all her course packs that are heavily flagged with tags for easy reference. Not to mention the TONS of old stuff she has. If this doesn’t wake her up, nothing will.

Wow… what a brilliant way to increase the exodus out of the “church”.

Glee  on February 25th, 2014

More people will leave in DROVES! Thank you Sir – VWD – please continue!! COB is doing a stupendous job of suppressing his own cult! I love it!!

I told the staff that I was selling all of my materials and E-meter after spending too much money and time on Scamonology and it not working. The Cult told me I could not sell the E-Meter to anyone w/o Cult approval or give the Org the opportunity to buy it back based on GI for that week. Knowing there is no GI – I politely told them:

“Sorry – too late. I sold MY E-Meter to some guy in Texas. They asked who and I told them…some “Marty Rathbun or Rathburn”. LOL

It was beautiful!!

The materials went into the City Dump – all 900 lbs of it…best money I spent on Sciendollatry!

WayWayOut  on February 25th, 2014

I remember that LRH wrote HCO PL 11 August 1971 II DON’T UNMOCK A WORKING INSTALLATION. If anything is observable in the past 20 years, it’s that Miscavige is preoccupied with unmocking working installations.

I also remember that HCOB 9 November 1967 REVISION OF REMEDY A, REMEDY B, AND S AND Ds says that the key S&D question (used to find SPs) is “WHO OR WHAT HAS ATTEMPTED TO UNMOCK YOU?

Gee, I wonder who THE item for that question is?

Praise the Lo-d! More hope for us declared folks! Perhaps the evil, and egomaniac activities will be lessened!!!!

“Shooting oneself in the foot?”

Dakota  on March 20th, 2014

It sounds like org stocks must be returned.
I don’t see where it says that an individual has to turn in his old materials.
Did I miss it?

PlainOldThetan  on March 20th, 2014

Yes, you missed it. But not because it was there to miss. I got a huge dox dump from my source with lots more info in it and I guess I let part of it slip.

Stay tuned.

And don’t forget that when GAK came out, parishioners were expected to turn in all their old books for destruction, even though the event didn’t say that was going to happen.

Remember also that the GAT II event didn’t mention that Mark VII meters would have to be returned, even though US orgs were “making available” a mechanism for turning in your old Mark VIIs.

Then, later, like in Mexico, it turned out you couldn’t even buy a Mark VIII without complying with the nationwide order to surrender your Mark VIIs.

So “turning in old stuff” isn’t always in the events or even in the paperwork.

P.S. I still have a set of pre-GAT 1 basic books, and pre-1991 Tech Volumes. They can have them if they can pry them from my cold, dead fingers.

Dakota  on March 21st, 2014

Thanks for clearing that up! Definitely post more docs when you can.
I remember when the new editions of the OEC’s and Red Vols came out, late 80’s I think, the org had to throw away all the old copies it owned but individuals didn’t. I protested that that they should keep at least one set in the Qual Library for reference and word clearing needs but was overruled.
I also have a set of books and vols from the mid 70’s that will never be given away.
A great project would be to scan the earliest available versions of the books.
I know there are FZ scans kicking around but not sure which editions.
Look forward to more goodies!

PlainOldThetan  on March 21st, 2014

The same thing happened in Miscavige’s “Death to Dictionaries” campaign. Staff members were going around and taking dictionaries off people’s desks and discarding them if they were “disallowed”. Even if the dictionaries were the parishioner’s private property.

Jane Doe  on March 22nd, 2014

An UTR friend of mine who is still in said that the ones on OT VII were allowed to only buy one new meter and were allowed to keep their Mark VII’s as a backup meter.

PlainOldThetan  on March 23rd, 2014

Wow. That’s information that the “church” could have put on a website. If the “church” had people who know how internet works.

Mike Crellin  on March 24th, 2014

The whole thing stinks and has for a long time. That people would put up with yet another ‘recall’ at their own expense boggles my mind. Sooner or later there will be a straw that breaks that camel’s back.

Tout doit disparaître (et être racheté) – scientologie-secte.org  on October 20th, 2017

[…] Sur son site, David St Lawrence nous apprend que trois mois après le lancement de GAT II, les orgs et les missions ont reçu la liste des livres et des cours qui sont désormais périmés. Les paroissiens et les membres du personnel sont requis de les rapporter au Disposal Officer de leur org ou de les expédier (à leurs frais) aux orgs d’édition scientologiques (Bridge ou NEP DK). On pourrait traduire Disposal Officer par Responsable du Ramassage, ou devrais-je dire de la Déchetterie ? […]
