The ethics of DM and is "Church" continue to reach new lows. As a result, they have become a vacuum for trouble and that's putting it extra-super mildly.
On December 30th, OT VII, Rex Fowler, a minister of David Miscavige's Church allegedly pumped three 9mm rounds into the head of his ex-business partner, killing him, who had resigned on November 23rd apparently after Rex was persuaded to "donate" $200,000 to the Church of Scientology or an associated charity -- surely this was the result of illegal crush regging. I'm sorry, but this has David Miscavige/IAS fingerprints all over it. The company had not been doing well the previous year. The ex-business partner who was not a Scientologist stopped in December 30th to collect his severance, a paltry $9,900, and was allegedlymurdered instead.
This is what burns me up. Out-ethics has consequences. People ARE dying and have been dying for decades due to what David Miscavige is doing. How many OTs have died from cancer due to out-tech "HCO-style sec checks" which LRH forbid in HCO PL, SECURITY CHECKS FORBIDDEN, not to mention violations of Policy and Ethics?
Stacy Moxon committed suicide in 2000 after being held captive at Int along with all the rest of us for 2 months. She was brand new, still in her teens (as I recall) and just couldn't take it. She had just gotten married prior to coming up to the Int base, and had not been allowed to see her new husband. Desparing, she committed suicide Sunday morning June 25, 2000. The crone, Marion "Wichiepoo" Pouw, a real termagant if there every was one, destroyed Stacy's suicide note per my inside source. And it certainly makes sense of the story and all the circumstances. Her father KENDRICK MOXON is an attorney who works for David Miscavige, the man who's orders resulted in the death of his own daughter. Kendrick -- maybe it's time for you to stop being a Miscavologist and start being a Scientologist and a father. How many more people have to die because in your confusion, you continue to follow the herd instead of your heart. Where is your knowingness? No doubt it is screaming in the pit of your soul. Can you not hear it because you have fogotten how to listen? Or can you not hear it because you refuse to hear?
In fact Stacy's death was one of many that had occurred at the Int base. Another was a 16-year-old girl who was decapitated when she ran into a front end loader hired by Int base execs to frantically clean up road at 11 PM because David Miscavige was suddenly on his way up to Int and heads would roll if the road was not beautified. A third was Joe Harrison, long-time Scientologist, Sea Org member and carpenter from LA who lost his life in 2003 while working on Building 50 -- David Miscavige’s $70 million private office/monument to greed and egomania -- as a direct result of Miscavige’s trademark policy of sleep deprivation (classified by the CIA as torture).
Yesterday, the St Petersburg Times ran the story of actor Larry Anderson who has resigned from Scientology due to out-tech in his auditing, lies from David Miscavige and DM's gross mismanagement. The article included audio recordings of Tommy Davis and Jessica Flashback -- his
Hearing about these things fills any real Scientologist with outrage. The loss of life, the blighting of hope, the lies and deceit emanating from Tommy Davis and his contemptous shrew-of-a-harpy side kick, Jessica Flashback in their utterly misguided love affair with David Miscavige are bringing the avalanche. Tommy Davis had the audacity to call Larry Anderson a liar -- caught on tape! While Jessica the Harpy (a rapacious bird of prey with a woman's face) tried her claws by asking Larry Anderson, "Are you, like, broke?"
OTs and Scientologists are running into the safety and sanity of the Independent movement. The damn is bursting. The tipping point is being reached.

A reader on Joe Howard's (Dan Koon's) new blog on www.RediscoverScientology.com which was launched last night (click to visit) asked about the 10% price increases instituted by LRH in the 1980s. Instead of stopping once Church prices had been correctly adjusted for inflation, the Church continued to increase prices affecting not only services, but even the price of books.
In 1989, after learning the ropes in marketing as a project manager for two years, I took over as the "Dianetics Route Marketing Officer" in Central Marketing Unit, responsible for all marketing relating to the Dianetics Route internationally. One of my first self-determined actions after getting on post was to review the prices of LRH's Dianetics books internationally because they had somehow been allowed to spiral upward out of control.
I confronted an unbelievably suppressive situation. At the time I thought the situation "had somehow been allowed to happen" and must have been due to oversight and neglect. In some of the poorer nations the price of a Dianetics book was higher than the average wages for an entire month! Can you imagine a normal book made of paper costing over $1,000 today? Well, that's what it was like for people living in other countries where normal wages in US dollars were as I recall less than two bucks a day.
Even a small hardback book like Advanced Procedures and Axioms was priced at $36 in the US. So no one was buying them. DMSMH was bigger, but more important, so it had somehow been given a special "low" price of only $32 each. Tack on shipping and taxes, and by the time these books reached Haiti, Papua New Guinea, Eastern Europe, the Far East or anywhere in Africa the prices were astronomical. No one could afford to buy one. Even in the US the prices were way, way, way, way, way, way, way out of line.
My investigation found there was absolutely no valid reason for the prices to be so high. Books didn't even cost that much to produce! The LRH pricing formula and policies were not being applied. "Someone" had continued the 10% price increase that started in 1980 until book prices were astronomical.
BEI (Books Exec Int, who's name was Sandy) told me she had tried to adjust the prices of books about two years earlier, and got herself flattened. After that, she gave up.
Undeterred, I submitted my solution. It was a huge proposal, fully researched, which I spent a couple of feverish months working on... only to have it resoundingly rejected by guess who?
You guessed it: Adolf Hit... I mean, David Miscavige. The submission was forwarded through CO CMU, Bill Dendiu, and Marketing Exec Int, Ronnie Miscavige, (they both approved it). Both were driven out of the Church long ago by David Miscavige. Ronnie took my pricing submission "up the hill" and personally presented it to David Miscavige. Well, Hitler went atomic and said "No way are we going to degrade LRH's books" -- which was a non-sequitur smoke screen since no one was suggesting to do anything except what LRH advised, which was make his books affordable.
When Ronnie brought the submission back to me he looked shell shocked. He was apologetic and didn't have much to say about it. I could tell he had gotten blasted because he, being on-Source, had supported the handling.
That was proof that the suppressive book pricing -- i.e. denying LRH tech to millions of people -- was NOT an accident that "had somehow been allowed to happen" as I thought originally. Clearly Scientology was being suppressed from the very highest level: David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board RTC was counter intending dissemination, personally stopping people from buying LRH books on an international scale by making them so expensive no one could afford them.
Anyone attempting to handle this was branded for "intending to degrade LRH books" -- a total lie, of course. And within a year I was inexplicably assigned to the RPF. Today I know I had put the bullseye on my own forehead by spotting DM.
If you are on the fence about David Miscavige, think about the people in places like Haiti who were reaching for the tech but couldn't afford a book. Miscavige has zero compassion, zero interest in helping others, zero interest in the humanitarian mission of Scientology. And he's made anything to do with Scientology abhorrent to the world at large. How would you feel about an organization that offered "freedom, only $1,000 a book."
At the 1989 SMI Mission Holder's Conference, about 200 people came representing "pioneer areas." They asked myself and MEI about the prices saying, "No one can afford to buy even one book!" Instead they would pool their money to buy one book, then pass it around until the pages were tattered and worn. All because of one man's insatiable avarice... or worse.
LRH said "Books are Dissemination" so when you strike at books, you are striking at the very heart of Scientology and that's what David Miscavige has done.
If you were around then, I'm sure you remember the prices. There was no reason for it. In fact, the orgs were absolutely LOADED up with book stocks, which was another Miscavige ploy in the early 1980s to get the book sales (stats) out the roof to trick LRH into trusting Miscavige.
The guy is so foul there ought to be a picture of him in every urinal. You could replace the skull and cross bones on toxic waste with a photo of David Miscavige and have a warning that was truly appropriate.
Miscavige didn't want people reading LRH books. He never gave a DAMN about the poor, or helping people to create a better future for themselves. Where would some of these countries like Haiti be today if only they had been allowed to buy LRH books in the 1980s when they originally wanted them?
The situation was so suppressive it made me sick for a few weeks. But I never gave up, because giving up on the human race is not an option. I know you feel the same way or you wouldn't be reading this now.
Today we know what to do and we're doing it. We're saying NO! to suppression. Independent Scientologists together are greater than David Miscavige. It is a group situation and even a 4th dynamic situation and you are helping to make it go right. Written by Thoughtful
A number of people have come to see me to help sort out arduous, extended mind-games the church has played with them concerning the subject of Clear.
It is quite remarkable that the church has had such success in confusing so many people about a subject that is simplicity itself.
The basic on the chain is the McPherson case. In the summer of 1995 DM personally wrote an extended C/S r-factor to Lisa McPherson that denigrated all Flag tech terminals on her case and falsely declared her as Clear. Apparently having recognized herself she was not experiencing the calm that others had described the state as including, and having lost all faith in anyone beneath the COB himself sorting out what he had declared sorted out, Lisa became increasingly frantic and desperate about what was going on. Within three months Lisa had a psychotic break and died after a seventeen day squirrel Introspection Rundown at Flag.
After McPherson died, Miscavige successfully withheld from even those handling the criminal and civil cases that he in fact had initiated the chain of events leading to her death. Then in his inimitable every-outpoint-is-a-why style of evaluation, DM instituted a number of arbitraries to make the attestation to the state of Clear an engramic episode. He created a pendulum swing whereby it became an increasingly complicated process to attest to Clear.
DM briefed Flag tech terminals and tech and admin staff in a number of SO installations that there was no such thing as past life Clears. He said that all past life Clears had long ago been accounted for. Anyone with much technical training knows how specious and illogical such a claim is. But, for the many staff and public who were caught up in never ending Clear invalidation at the hands of the church, and subject to non-stop propaganda about DM’s immaculate conception, it seemed their confusions about Clear would go on for eternity.
Two people who were directly invalidated by such Miscavige briefings have visited me, had their confusions about Clear sorted out, attested and quite happily moved on.
Another trick perpetrated by DM is to pester those who have already attested to Clear with doubts and never-ending interrogations about their states before allowing them onto OT Levels. He’s got the tech heirarchies at Flag and AO’s programmed to program such people with endless sec checking. It seems the EP of those sec checks is not to have someone certain about Clear, but instead to become “certain” that DM is Source.
Two people who were subjected to that type of treatment visited, were easily sorted out and are now solo auditing their OT levels.
DM has g0ne so far as to redirect public who have been on the OT Levels for some time back onto Dianetics auditing; a high crime of some magnitude. This is particularly suppressive when one considers LRH devised a simple C/S to handle terminatedly anyone who might have gotten onto the OT Levels absent certainty about his or her Clear state.
A bloke who had been put back onto engram running after NOTs visited, the LRH C/S was performed, and he no longer has any doubt or reservation about his Clear state.
If five people thoroughly confused about their Clear states, all of whom sorted out next to instantaneously, could find their way to the middle of nowhere to get resolved – I fairly wonder just how many there are similarly situated within the C of Mestology.
There is no reason to be confused about Clear for eternity.
For sometime I've been planning to bring online another website. The purpose of this new second website was to help get Scientology back on course by acting as a compass pointing to Scientology's philosophic core.
Additionally, many independent Scientologists have expressed a need for a website without the word "cult" in its domain name, where they could send their "dependent" Scientologist friends who were still under the thought-control of the Church of Miscavology. The first person to suggest this was one of our writers, Flur Fornow. Additionally, FriendsofLRH.org is back online, bigger and better than ever.
The new website is still under construction by SteveHallCreative.com, but it's usable now.
Christmas is all about the joy of giving, and so I wanted to give it to you.
The Iron Door of Scientology is opening; 2010 is going to be one hell of a year.
Again, this website was just born today -- Christmas Day, 2009 -- so it is going to grow. You simply won't believe one of it's features (soon to be released). In short, that feature alone is going to rock the Scientology world (in a good way).
Scientology-cult.com is all about whistle blowing: Using the technology of third-dynamic auditing to audit our group engram with the objective of returning the Church to sanity.
RediscoverScientology.com website is all about re-alignment: Reestablishing the core of our philosophy, replanting our roots so they can grow.
Scientology-cult.com is about rehabilitating a criminal organization: the Church.
RediscoverScientology.com is about enabling the Phoenix of Scientology to rise from the ashes.
Thank you for all YOU have done this year to open the Iron Door that has been closed for so long.
Please look over the new website and feel free to comment here with any ideas you have.
There have been times and places when being in the Sea Org was fun. There was purpose and even honor. Those days are long gone. Now it's more like being a prison guard (or prisoner) in a 1984-style prison system. Harsh ethics has become pervasive, trademark Miscavige; pointlessly so, unnecessarily so, arbitrarily so. Sea Org members were tough by design. They had to be because there was a big job to do and few to do it. But this is the crashing misunderstood word: toughness is NOT the same thing as harshness.
The only people who think so are the WEAK and criminally-minded people of the world. The truly TOUGH person is kind and able to love. They are so TOUGH they are able to take it all, handle it all, overcome anything, and yet they are still able to love people, laugh easily, and inspire others to do the same.
When I think about "tough," I think about LRH in the early days. I think "tough" and "character" go hand in hand. "Tough" and "compassion" go hand in hand. "Tough" and "wisdom" go hand in hand. "Tough" and "faith" go hand in hand.
"Harsh" -- that is the province of weak and the stupid. It is their misunderstanding. It is as close as they can come to "tough" since they have no way to comprehend what "tough" is really all about.
Here's who I think are really TOUGH: those individuals who have seen what's going on and who are now standing up and doing something about it against all odds, with zero funding... and winning. And all with zero harsh ethics, musters, justice actions, physical assaults, HCO Summonses, disconnections, rumor campaigns, black PR, lies, entheta, Severe Reality Adjustments, stat graphs, condition assignments, multimillion A/V systems, million-dollar events, written programs, projects, orders, and confidential COB Transcripts marked, "Not to leave the base."
It has taken a lot of hard work and even a few all-nighters, but even those were fun. :-)
Instead of all the wholly unnecessary idiocies, our efforts are characterized by honesty and intense friendships on every hand. Because the camaraderie is so high, we naturally have each other's back. Without enforcing a single aspect, we are the very definition of an OT team.
Instead of written programs, projects and orders we have initiative. We act in concert without a single product conference or planning session.
One of us starts something only to find that someone else started the exact thing needed to complement those actions. It's exactly like this: one of us decides to build a door and starts. Then he or she notices someone else is building a roof and someone else is building a wall and someone else is building a path.
Every one one of us is wearing a hat and doing a job and doing it for free because we care. Included in that are all the people who comment and lend their voice in support and defense.
I think some people believe there is a group of beings watching over the human race. I think even this idea is a romantically-stupid misunderstanding. The actual truth is far better than this fairy tale misconception.
The heroic beings exist. That’s a fact. But they aren’t “watching over” the human race... like angelic firemen in white gowns laying around on Cloud 9 until they are needed, then coming down to intervene.
We aren’t “watching over” the human race or “looking down upon” the human race.
We ARE the human race!
The human race is something special. Membership in our group is entirely open-ended and voluntary. Anyone can belong to that group who wants to belong because it's a matter of character.
Some of them joined the Sea Org. Many more never heard of Scientology. These beings live and work throughout the world and are called collectively the human race or in Scientology we call them the "4th dynamic."
David Miscavige thought he could subjugate them, "take them over" and make them follow his gibberish orders. I call that the incredible arrogance of a criminal imbecile.
He can label us “suppressive persons” or spread false rumors. He isn't going to crush the 4th dynamic. Not now, not ever.
