Including what we found in Scientology before it became a cult

Writers of the Future gets desperate

After the revelations about the Writers of the Future contest documented by Tony Ortega here and here, attendance must be dropping drastically.

Why? Well, for one thing, invitations to the award banquet are being shotgun-blasted to names on the Scientology mailing list.

The person who received this e-mail is not an aspiring or accomplished artist or writer. He’s just some poor sap that happens to be in Scientology’s Central Addresso. Prior to receiving this e-mail, this person has never been included in any WTF activities ever before.

Central Addresso is that unit inside CSI that keeps track of all parishioners, far and wide.

The reason that the Church does this in violation of its own policy is that it’s the only way to make the giant centralized Scientology Dissemination and Distribution Center worthwhile.

It is still my opinion that the D&D Center’s purpose it to provide the US Postal Service with money, and to provide Scientologists with paper to recycle.

Anyway, this e-mail was received two weeks before the WTF awards event. If you’re familiar with LRH policy on event promotion, you know it says It should be the primary concern of HCO (WW), Ltd. To increase the dissemination, activities and income of all organizations on a crash program basis. This should be done by:

6. Demanding long range, advance notice by HCOs to the field of coming functions and no more of this thirty-day notice of a tape play. Get a year’s schedule of special events ahead and published and then boomed ninety days in advance of each one. (ref:HCO PL 26 January 1964 HCO (WW) LTD. CENTRAL ORG ACTIVITIES)

The only conclusion that can be drawn is that the RSVPs for the event aren’t keeping pace to make quota. In other words, the rest of the world…like caterers and banquet-seating people…need an attendance estimate to price their products and to get their job done.

Well, the overconfident Miscavologists gave an estimate. And the confirmed attendance isn’t keeping up with the numbers given to the service agencies.

The hazard from this, of course, is that photos taken at the event won’t show the event as being packed and standing-room-only.

The hidden hazard is that the event attendance won’t be highest-ever. And you know, if you’ve been on Scientology staff, every event is quota’d for highest-ever attendance.

Both of those hazards have the potential of leading to physical striking, upbraiding, lower conditions, demotion, and RPFing.

Here’s the actual e-mail:

This glorious celebration of the contest winners and artists also includes dance and music vignettes for every winning story.

There is no entry fee for the event and valet parking is included, no charge.

We only require that you e-mail [email protected] and leave your name and the name of any guests. We will not accept walk-ins!

Of course, a new hazard has arisen.

When Miscavige finds out that someone that’s not sitting on the right hand of God figured out the desperation message reeking out of this e-mail, there will be the wailing and gnashing of teeth.

So, if you want to get access to the Writers of the Future awards event, send them an e-mail. Get on the list. Then grab your WTF anthology volumes and take them to the event and have them signed.

By who?

I dunno.

While you’re there, you can ask the other attendees if they know about the Church’s abysmal record of human rights violations, history of destruction of families, record of forced abortions, and history of human trafficking.

You could even hand out little cards with the URLs of sites documenting these atrocities.

Ooooh! Maybe the WTF awards show will be more fun than I thought!

I wonder if the attendees at the WTF awards event are going to be told about James Barbour’s sex-crimes conviction in 2001. (http://technorati.com/entertainment/glosslip/article/actor-and-scientology-dabbler-james-barbour-pleads-guilty-to-sexual-crimes-with-a-minor/ and
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/04/nyregion/04actor.html) And I wonder if by California or Federal law they must inform all artists in attendance James Barbour Is a convicted sex offender? Is Joni Labaqui really vetting these “entertainers”? What stain does this put on the WTF and L. Ron Hubbard? And Miscavige?
