    Newspeak: Disconnection

    Excellent article from Mike Rinder. It helps understand why scientologists say they are not disconnecting when of course they are. The things they tell themselves to make it ok. http://www.mikerindersblog.org/newspeak-disconnection/

    Merry Xmas ESMB & love to disconnected members!

    Christmas can be hard for anyone who has lost family for any reason, and a time when the unfairness and isolation caused by disconnection hits hardest amidst the media hype of happy families and sharing. I’ve noticed a few posts on another thread about it and the quiet sadness. I think the...

    A story of Disconnection, neglect and suicide in scientology

    I'm starting this thread in this forum as overall it shows the devastation disconnection and 'scientology handling' and the fear of talking causes within familes. It's a harrowing read and there are thousands of stories with the same themes. It happened, it happens, it has to stop...

    Paul Holland - I miss you, Dad

    Dad, you're gone, you're really really gone. And I miss you, so so much! I just awoke from a very upsetting dream in which I was trying so hard to reach you. Calling out into abstract darkness, I shouted "dad, dad!" but you did not answer. It has been 6 years since my father disconnected...

    Mike Rinder - Disconnection And My Mother

    This is an old article from 2013 that I read for the first time today. And cried. It is so typical of the heartache caused by disconnection. He was only informed his mother had passed away by a brave soul who wrote and told him. http://www.mikerindersblog.org/disconnection-and-my-mother/

    Christmas and Disconnection

    Many of us face hard times at Christmas due to the disconnection or loss of family or friends. You can't help but be reminded of how things used to be, should be, could be if it weren't for (insert reason). For ex scientologists it is particularly due to disconnection, that brutal ripping apart...

    Fundamentalist Scientology and Enforced Disconnection

    This is one of the most comprehensive explanations of what scientologists have as their fundamental belief. It explains why family disconnections take place, why abuses within the organisation have little meaning. It really, really is like this ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAWpyvqCO2I...

    Disconnection - no holds barred

    I don't know if this is common knowledge or not but you don't have to get declared a Suppressive Person in order to have disconnection policy applied to you.
