What do I see that you dont?
That the beliefs, the ideals, are held by people not yet fully capable of living up to them. And that those people are solving their "problem", life, with what tools they have. Frequently imperfectly.
"Scientology" owes me nothing. Nor anyone else for that matter. It is there to be used or abused. Its what you make of it. Many have chosen to make a cluster fuck of it. A few seem to appreciate it being there and have made success with it.
And in the end, it will be the aggregate of all the individual actions and experiences that will say what it was.
That time is not here.
I can't help but notice that you did not answer the specific question I asked you - even after you asked me to be more specific.
The US government is WAY better at preserving the freedom of speech than any Scientologist.
In fact, these Scientologists who are "not yet fully capable" of upholding the freedom of speech are complete retards next to the US government.
So why do you want to be a complete retard?
This is what I had to ask myself.
And I answered that I did not want to be a complete retard.
You seem to have had a different answer.
