Now that I have completely derailed this thread, I want to do my liability condition and as amends I will get it back on the original trail.
So, the story seems to go: LRH turned his hat over to Mayo and DM busted him. Mayo decided to counteract and helped in starting Scn delivery outside of the org structure which resulted in the Freezone. DM fought to silence Mayo and succeeded after 10-15 years, but did not succeed in taking down the Freezone. And DM is continuing to try and build the CoS to high enough status (legally and monetarily) that it will be able to take out the FZ? Or is he continuously attacking the FZ still?
I almost got the idea that he is letting the FZ go on and get the idea he won't do anything about them, but that he plans to hit them in one go, once it seems safe... (Total speculation on my part since I didn't know anything about the FZ as of a few months ago.) I'm coming to this conclusion based on the knowledge that DM will never give up on his perceived enemies before they are wiped out and silenced.
Okay, is that the long and short of it, basically?
Based on other stories I read of LRH's death, DM was not the chosen one to succeed him but orchestrated it later himself.
The attacks on the FZ are continuous. Sort of. This weekend had an FZ Convention in San Francisco. Last I heard one sad guy turned up on friday to
picket. Maybe more happened over the weekend, the main days.
There was severe pressure on the TV programme " The beginners guide to L ron Hubbard. " The "Mentor"
was approached by OSA including those flown in from LA 4-5 times a day for
a month and given severe legal threats if he didn't help stop the program showing. It is the only TV program showing the tech in a good light. In
the FZ. ( see my sig line)
I got visited twice by OSA on this as I posted details it was coming.
Several of our UK members were approached by OSA re this programme.
The police have files.
There have been rumours he is planning to hit the FZ. I can't see this as being very successful. It was very successfull back in 1983 or so. Mayo and all his affiliated groups withered and died.
Russia has around 50 FZ orgs. There was an attempt to stop the filming of the TV program in Moscow by informing the KGB equivalent that FZers were drug dealing! Lol!
There is a COS " hate site " " Freezone survivors" ( google) which had this to say about it all:-
" However, based on a former job, Dmitry knew the law of Russian Federation and what immediately struck him as odd was that the commercial activity that was carried out in the camp was entirely illegal. There was selling of books, materials, courses without any documents or receipts – the money was just put in the pockets. This also means that there no taxes were paid on this money. Just imagine the condition of the person who bit by bit collects money from his “student salary” and, as a result, he has no confirmation at all that he gave the money and nobody is responsible for this. In other words, because of this money these people destroyed his human rights. To rehabilitate these rights the money for the bad services should be paid back to him. "
The attacks on the FZ are inept. People shouldn't be scared.
