Many people on this site put up with the Cof$ because they fervently believed it had the only answers to the truth. Eventually or quickly, they found out otherwise. So they left. The FZ seems to be a group that still believes Scienwhatchamacallit works, and they object only to the goon squad tactics of the organization. So they continue the tech/dreck independently.
Most of us know that the tech gives only temporary eurphorias and nothing more. And that no matter who you pay for your floating needle jollies, it isn't worth it. So most of us aren't FZers. Personally, I feel that anyone who still believes that Scn. beyond a touch assist or a few other things that HumpBoard plagerized, works, is lost in space. But he/she is free to waste their money if they like.
I don't believe this to be uniform, but there is some truth in this. At least I started out that way. After I left the Church, I hit the internet and looked for some alternative. My philosophy was along the lines of standard tech, minus the alterations and organizational brutality.
I quickly realised that the lack of organization and a 'free for all' attitude is what stopped the groups from really being worthwhile. I also noticed that many of the people at the helm had spent the best part of two decades in the Church and seemed to lack what *I personally* felt was a worthwhile end phenomenon of all the auditing and study. I left and I got a bit mad with Terril, but that has subsided now. Something is only a hook in your head if you let it be. People only have power over them because you let them. I feel like I've taken out one big hook.
I consider myself Freezone in the truest sense of the word, and although this may sound a little arrogant, but I feel like I can truly study what I choose, commuicate with people on any subject I choose, make ammends where I feel it needed. There is no counter push from an a false sense of ethics, or who is source and what is standard.
I've actually really enjoyed reading L.Kins third part just this afternoon, whilst sat in the park. As I was watching a family (mentioned in another thread) I was reading the part about racism and atlantis and how the white race has been on earth since before Inc2 and may want 'their planet back', hence modern racism. And while to some the whole idea of atlantic and a preInc2 society much like todays, may be a load of hogwash, it does provide for a true metaphor.
Since I came on here at the weekend, I have started to have the improvement I have wanted for years. It's a nice feeling and I hope others get it too.
