David Miscavige has enlisted three of his long-time partners in crime, Marion Pouw, Mike Sutter and Hansuli Stahli. If you’ve read about some of David Miscavige’s criminal activities, you’ve probably seen their names. Each one of them is an expert at justifying anything Miscavige orders, no matter how criminal. In fact, they’re so good at this kind of justification, so fast, it has become a substitute for having their own viewpoint. And when a person has lost their own viewpoint they can no longer as-is anything. So, they survive, machine-like, according to aberrated computations like "David Miscavige is always right" or "Nothing matters but expansion." Hence the term robot.
Crossing the lineWell, as I said Miscavige has sent them on a special project of damage control. One by one they are contacting Scientologists and ex-staff and trying to “handle them” by showing them videos of all the new buildings. That the buildings are empty is no matter. "Expansion" has been redefined to mean "real estate."
Yael borrowed $700 from one person and only after heavy intervention did she repay... part of it. Still owes $150. Classy.
So here's what to expect when the buzzards start to circle: After a bit of introduction, and “Gosh, remember when...” and “I heard you are married now...” they tell their own sanitized story. Then they bring up the people who are “attacking the church.”
To an out-of-valence justification machine like Marion Pouw, blowing the whistle on abuse, violence and crime = "attacking the church." Strange, but I don’t think human rights organizations around the world... I don’t think media outlets around the world... I don’t think the world itself would agree with that equation.
Next comes “logic” like “Why turn around and attack the thing we supported for all those years?” Why indeed?
Here are some possible answers: duh... because human trafficking is a crime? Because blackmail, extortion, racketeering, assault, torture are wrong? Because forcing thousands of abortions and hundreds of divorces is wrong? Because breaking up families through disconnection is wrong? Because embezzlement is wrong? Because soliciting millions in donations for one thing, but spending the money on something else is wrong? Because harming people to the point that some have committed suicide is wrong? Because using Reverse Scientology is wrong? Because making Scientology into a farce is wrong?
But why even wait for an answer? Instead Yael and her crony buzzards rush onward from inane rhetorical questions to naming key whistle blowers. Then they level the final condemnation.
The word from David Miscavige, filtered through Marion Pouw, Mike Sutter and Hansuli Stahli, through Yael Sherlock, Wolfi Frank and Neel Smed is that these leaders “only say they are pulling David Miscavige’s withholds, but it’s not true. They are hurting Scientology.” Are we really, now?
3rd-dynamic auditorsWhen I was six years old, I tried to do a back flip off a fence and broke my right arm just above the wrist. It was a compound fracture, but I didn’t cry. My parents rushed me to the hospital. After X-rays, the doctors told me they had to set the bones and when they did it was “going to hurt.”
But the bones healed and I got my arm back. The pain was over soon enough. 3rd-dynamic auditing is like that. Honesty can be a bitter pill. Miscavige is trying hard to spit it out. He’ll throw anyone under the bus. Me, you, any of us.
Ultimately, what all this shows is that “the tone arm is moving;” we are making progress.
Yes, I'm sure confronting the truth hurts. David Miscavige blew session in the early 1990s and has not been back in session since. No one has ever pulled his withholds, that's a big part of the problem. So we are doing it; and we're thorough.
Good for the soul
Expect the patient to howl and squirm. The medicine is bitter but lord it's needed. And what is that medicine? Ethics; transparency; accountability.
