A letter that will leave you speechless

As Marty noted on his blog, Luis’ letter has gone viral. Luis hoped that he could reach as many Scientologist still in the church before it hit the sites and blogs where he could not escape notice and immediate labelling. Marty said the letter perhaps captures the ENTIRE Black Dianetics operation being run by Miscavige (Ethics, Tech and Admin) better than any written piece to date. Please read it carefully if you have not already done so. Luis’ insights both in his letter and in his post here demonstrate the caliber of being he is: an intuitive and courageous, Scientologist. - Thoughtful

Hello!

After much looking, soul-searching, researching, evaluating and arriving at conclusions, I decided to leave the church. But how do I do it? Stable datum: I am a Scientologist who applies Scientology.

As part of doing my conditions, I thought of writing a letter to David Miscavige. In it I would combine several points of the conditions’ formulas, for example:

Doubt #6: “Join or remain in or befriend the one which progresses toward the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics and announce the fact publicly to both sides.”

Doubt #7: “Do everything possible to improve the actions and statistics of the person, group, project or org one has remained in or joined.”

Liability #2: “Deliver an effective blow to the enemies of the group one has been pretending to be part of despite personal danger.”

As I was doing my conditions, I came to the end of doubt, and had to announce my decision to “both sides”. As part of this process, I sent my letter to Miscavige, via the RTC website first, on November 6th.

However, if I had only sent the letter to Miscavige and then posted the letter on the different blogs, I would really only be addressing one side, and even then it would be incomplete. One side has to include every Scientologist from across the world that I have ever known, from Hollywood to Kazakhstan, for the last 28 years. Since I have this habit of collecting contact info from everyone I meet, I was well prepared in terms of names and email addresses.

But what about the thousands of unsolicited emails I’ve received over the years from church staff and public Scientologists, requesting donations for “ideal orgs” all over the map, or announcing their fundraising of the day, or promoting their “Improve your Finances” seminar, or ordering my attendance to a mandatory briefing?

Well, I figured if they communicate to me, then I also have the right to communicate to them. So yes! They all got a copy of my “Letter to COB.” And let me assure you, my list included a large number of org staff and SO members from around the world as well as some staff of high rank.

As a result of my “dissemination”, I received a number of replies from people who wanted to forward my letter to their own mailing list, but couldn’t or wouldn’t do it because “they were under the radar” or for other reasons. So they gave me their mailing lists and I sent my letter to everyone from those lists.

And soon after that, I received other replies demonstrating that many more of my original recipients were in fact forwarding the letter to their own contacts.

So, all in all, I sent a total of 2,643 emails. The number of times the letter was forwarded by recipients is unknown.

Here are the stats so far:

Total number of emails sent by me alone: 2,643

Bounced/undeliverable: 136

Replied “Don’t ever email me again”: 14

Replied “How did you get my email?”: 17

Replied expressing agreement and support: 7

Replied expressing agreement from people “under the radar” 29

Cautious replies wanting to know more: 11

Replied with a KR written on me: 2

Replied from OSA bots: 4

These stats are very interesting. After reading a 20-page letter outlining a plethora of outpoints the biggest concern of 17 people is “How did you get my email?” Can you spell f-e-a-r? Altered importance, perhaps?

What is blatantly obvious above is what is missing: 2,423 did not reply at all. SILENCE. I wouldn’t want to speculate on what this means. You can draw your own conclusions.

But I do remember a time when I received an “entheta” email. I stayed silent, took action, and I started to look.

I doubt Miscavige received my letter, as his staff would probably not forward anything that might slightly enturbulate the dear leader.

For a few days now, this letter has been distributed far and wide and read by plenty a Scientologist, and replies continue to come in.

So davey: if you are reading this, and I’m pretty sure you are, you are officially the last person to read my letter addressed to you. Now, when staff and public give you that funny look, you may wonder: “Is this one of the thousands who received that letter? Does he agree with it? Is he disaffected with me? Maybe he needs more sec-checking. Or a good solid RPF for 8 years…”

And this concludes my declaration of Independence. And in classic miscavige-style I would like to say: “It was an enthralling and formidable, magnificent but yet incredible, unequivocal and uncompromising, and most exhilarating and effective way of delivering a blow to the enemy.”

Love you all.

Luis Garcia,

You have indeed delivered an effective blow to the enemy= Dear Leader.

I can guarantee you he is cussing out of whiskey glass big time tonight. And he is probably RPFing/sending to the hole or SP Hall, pretty much the entire base.

Your Mission is officially a success.
Thank you so much and VWD!!

I know Luis Garcia for almost 40 years. He is not from Mexico, he is from Madrid, Spain. He was very brave writing and making public this letter. I am proud of him.

Wow you said it so well! I too believe DM has hijacked our church and tend it into an insatiable money motivated group not service or help, DM has forever tarnished LRH’s name and reputation, turning all his work into a joke, its just sad too see something that was so important to me, it was my life for 15 years, tern into a joke, and do more harm then help, DM is the SP but he cant do it by himself, just like Hitller could not have committed genocide alone.

This is my favoret part of your letter:

“you have managed to hijack it and have turned it into a squirrel group.
Handling from within is not possible, as you have really made the entire area very PTS, have created a dangerous environment whereby Scientologists routinely engage in thought‐stopping, inhibited communication, not‐ising and dub‐in, and many have snapped terminals with you.

I can imagine the piles of Knowledge reports sent to your office every day, and nothing is ever done on them.”



Your letter has given me hope after years of confusion, with brave scientologists maybe we can restore the original purpose of LRH’s tech – to free beings, to improve lives, to help overcome depression and give hope to people.

Much Love

He's not from Mexico but Spain. Hey Luis - remember me? It's been 25 years but we were close in HB early on.

Glad to see you finally saw the light.

The video I just watched on this site, "Miscavage Town, on the similarities between Jonestown and organized scientology
is the most frightening video I've seen since leaving the cult. When you realize how similar they are, it becomes a race against time to get any and all family members and friends out of this black hole they call a religion. Will they drink the KoolAid? Only time will tell...

I'm old OT7. The video I just viewed on this web site, Miscavage Town, and the similarities between Jonestown and organized scientolgoy (especially the Sea Org), is one of the most frightening videos I've ever seen. Time may be running out to get your family and friends out of this black hole they call a "religion." Will they drink the KoolAid? Only time will tell...

Thank you Luis!

Your statement of the specific violations has helped me let go of some more residual upset. I have finally been moving ahead in the aftermath of my staff career. I had decided at the first of Novemeber to also write a letter to DM. I could not have penned one so eloquently and so exact. I am so grateful. You really said it. I will write a letter for my own sake but this is a masterpiece by you. Bless you!

Sadism in the SP Hall

The game went on for hours as staff wept bitter tears. This delighted The Cob."  Learn More...

Abuse

Lisa McPherson's Demise
