    So true ! The image of the cult was so much more important than the welfare of any individual in the cult.

    that thursday at two thing is so random .. I asked a couple sea org members about it once and one of them said that it was based off another system which ron liked and that's why the week ended on thursday at two... instead of friday or saturday or something..

    IMHO it was Thursday at 2 because that gave departments and sections the rest of the day to gather and report their stats, and all day Friday for management to plan their punishments programs for the next week, starting Monday.

    (Exception: the academy always ended student point stats Wednesday evening. I suppose it was necessary to make foundation students report their stats before going home.)

    I don't get it -- what's the difference between leaving staff and being offloaded? Don't they both get you to the same place?

    Personally, I thought Thursday at 2:00 was used because people naturally tend to let down on Friday in anticipation of the weekend but by determining a staff member's condition on Thursday, they go into Friday with the desperate realization that they have to bust their asses in order to get their condition up by next week Thursday.

    That's easy. Leaving staff is your decision, being offloaded is theirs. Your reason will be wrong and their reason will be right.

    sorry Blue, that's not it. Hubbard said weekly stats were because Wall Street was too slow in reporting of quarterly stats, or every 3 months. Scientology was a supposed to be dynamic organization reporting daily and weekly stats and Wall Street was too slow in showing growth. It was all rhetoric or persuasion by Hubbard giving a comparison to Wall Street. The bottom line in my opinion was Hubbard wanted money flowing in now, and he wanted to see the results now and or predict them.

    "Thursday at 2:00pm" was explained in Finance Series 14 (or 12 or something). It was for the convenience of Int management.
    Stats reported at Thursday, 2:00 could be sent to management and they could do their "planetary management" functions on Friday and the orgs/missions could begin implementing conditions and plans for the next seek before the weekend (Saturday/Sunday) and have a head start on the next week. (Or something like that.

    I know. I've read the whole Finance Series. I don't really care what LRH said. It's just my personal opinion that the whole operation was based on control and that control depended on messing with people's heads to keep them tunnel visioned and motivated to work. By doing it this way there wasn't a clear distinction between the work week and the weekend. Friday was effectively Monday in Scio world and if your stats were down Thursday or if you felt uncertain that you could get them up again over the prior week by the following Thursday then you didn't need a senior to tell you to work through the weekend - you did it on your own. After a few years of this it all just kind of blurs together until walking around the corner to buy a packet of Fritos becomes libs.
