This article is not written by a Scientologist. It was written by a member of another, far larger, organization. Maybe you've heard of it. It's called the human race. The article illustrates beautifully the effect we are creating, and the simple beauty of how lucky we are on this planet, when it's all said and done, to have each other. The human race is so diverse. Every culture brings something infinitely valuable and important to the table. Shoulder to shoulder, I don't think there's anything in the universe that could best mankind. For all its faults, and Lord knows its faults are many, Earth is still the craziest best place a spirit can call home. And it has fantastic potential. My opinion.
What we have lacked on this planet is a mankind that knows and loves itself. That understands it's own assets, talents and character. Yes, we have crime. Yes, we have war. We have the worst and the best.
Mankind has focused so much on its worst, it has yet to fully recognize and celebrate it's best. We've all known people who dwelt on their own shortcomings and failings to their own detriment. In fact, that is the state in which most people start in Scientology. Through training and auditing, they discover there is so much good within themselves that they've always overlooked. Then comes pure magic: the more good they find in themselves, the better they become for real. We've all heard of the "vicious circle"; well in real Scientology, we have the reverse: the expanding spiral.
As it is with the individual; so it is with mankind.
This article was entirely unsolicited. I think it is remarkable. Our message IS getting through.
Some of our readers have said, "Why don't you just go to the FBI and tell them what happened?" Well, I know of three people (myself included) who did just that and frankly the FBI didn't believe them. The facts are too unbelieveable. The monster the Church of Scientology has morphed into is too fantastic, too incredible to be absorbed from one source. The abuse is on a scale that actually boggles the mind. It is probably the most shocking, fascinating story of recent times. So part of the idea of this website was to put it all in one place, so that a non-Scientologist could review and digest the information at their own leisure and eventually get the full picture.
This website is what LRH called a multiple viewpoint system, meaning it enables a person to understand the full situation and all its ramifications through multiple viewpoints (multiple sets of eyes). In this way, one isn't swayed by human emotion or individual errors in perception or judgement. Well, it's working. And why not? It's Scientology. On behalf of Scientology-cult, let us warmly welcome FLYING FORTRESS. -- Thoughtful
The Damage Done
I caught you knockin'
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.
I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.
I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don't understand
Milk-blood to keep from running out.
I've seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie's
like a settin' sun.
I've never been associated with the Church of Scientology, but I believe I understand the tenets and basic philosophy of Scientology. I have read virtually all the articles and comments posted on this site. I would not call myself religious, although I did attend seminary at one time. I would rather be considered a spiritual being having a human experience. I find we believe many of the same things.
Enough about me...lets talk about the Church of Scientology and current leader David Mascavige's campaign of psychological terror and mental abuse! Every time I read another story describing the abuses of power that were (are?) perpetrated by DM as the head of your beloved church...it sickens me!
Janela's story now brings another dimension that I had not taken into consideration. What of all the blameless children who were ripped from the nurturing influences of their parents to be shipped across the country and raised by proxy among minders, handlers and task masters? What a sad story this is! Thanks to Janela for coming forward and putting this in perspective for me and hopefully others.
You are people who believed in something so completely that they gladly devoted their entire lives to this cause, then are (by no fault of their own) transformed into virtual prisoners of a despotic dictator. Forced to sign admissions of guilt and complicity far in advance of potential conduct or rebellious attitudes. Constantly in fear of being run off by this guy! Real people don't think that way! Only people deliberately intending to cause damage and maliciously harm others would cover their tracks in this manner. People who have ALWAYS acted that way think quickly to cover their tracks and counter accusations with complex fabrications.
What this all amounts to is nothing short of psychological torture and mental abuse on a daily basis. Sounds to me as if everyone is exhausted physically, always kept vulnerable, living in fear and paralyzed by the thought of being separated from your children, spouses, parents, friends, and the very beliefs that you've devoted you lives to.
This bears repeating: This is nothing short of psychological torture!
When I read all these letters and comments, I feel as if I'm reading the accounts of refugees and those who've fled persecution. Holding onto a shattered spirit while struggling to build lives anew and coming to grips with the now...all too real outside world. I was heartened by the knowledge that Janela is able to be with her mother and begin a real relationship with her daughter, yet I now know there are gut wrenching stories of less fortunate outcomes.
I guess the real reason that I'm writing this is to encourage all of you who have been waiting and wondering when the time would be right to come forward and share your story as Janela has.
That time has come! Thanks to the global media coverage many like myself are just now learning the truths about the rampant psychological abuse and denial of basic human rights by David Miscavige. People need to be better informed to help you spread the word and see this madman removed and expelled for good. This outside movement is quickly reaching a critical mass where the legitimate disaffected whistle blowers will speak so loudly that it's impossible to cover up the damage this ONE MAN has caused in so many peoples lives.
Speak out and come forward now...take your church back!
