    It just keeps getting worse! This is hilarious.

    You'd think he would have had another translator there so that he could have heard the accolades spoken twice . . . . but of course, then he wouldn't have looked multilingual and all-important to the masses. But, it appeared that he enjoyed this flattery even more when he was the one saying it about himself. I have never seen anyone promote themselves so shamelessly and with such exaggerated, narcissistic grandeur. It is absolutely comical . . .and I don't think even a Saturday Night Live satirical sketch could make it any funnier.

    I would love to be a mind reader at one of those events, and see how many of his adoring subjects are trying to squelch supressive thoughts so they won't "read" at the next sec check. They just can't be brainwashed to this degree. . . . and if they are, I feel bad for them when it's time to run their BPC (By-passed-cringes (TM Helluvahoax)) ;)

    Omg, lololol, I thought at first it was a YT glitch/stutter :roflmao: , still never made it past 30 secs, maybe tonight after a few :beer: ...
    Yikes! (dunno why but for some reason I flashed on the old Roman tradition of 'Vomitorium' when imagining the audience reaction)

    Still here in Vegas and consider the design philosophy of Ideal orgs and events
    must be From the Vegas branch of the " Bauhaus" school of slot machine and
    billboard aesthetic.

    Yes Ceasars Palace is in comparison classic but old and tired, drive past it every day.

    They should consult DM for a rebuild and some creative input on how to more quickly separate the punters and their money.

    Perhaps a new aesthetic movement for " Ideal Casino's"?

    It's not possible to read their minds.

    Because the tech is much more powerful than anyone realized.

    When they went Clear and as-ised their reactive mind, there was some minor collateral damage and their analytical mind was erased too.

    Maybe he does it with the intention that the OTs will suppress those rancid thoughts thereby commiting a mind crime of the SP kind and therefore conclude that they have to immediately make plans to report for their next 6 month sec check.

    All he needs next is to have regges handy for the next week to somehow miss their withholds so that the BTs are keyed in and the OT has a greater urge to buy that airplane ticket now and book the hotel room now.

    The story about Stalin was that the first person to stop clapping was later disappeared.

    I had to force myself to sit thru this video that Karen#1 has posted for us. I wanted to turn it off, as it is so sickening to watch - but I also felt compelled to sit thru it. Miscavige is such a repulsive little person - pretending that his "translation" was not rehearsed down to the last tiny detail. And the trappings - podiums, columns, medals, uniforms, symbols, etc. Yeucchh.

    ... and then I remembered why I liked Scientology events. It was because that was the trigger that made me start "looking", and ultimately led to my leaving Scientology.

    The first and only event I attended was huge. I went with some Scientology "friends", and I was immediately struck by how tacky the whole thing was and how hypnotized everybody seemed to be, and the clapping - my GOD, the clapping, the endless fucking clapping. I realized right there and then that I wanted no part of this "reality distortion field". This self-congratulatory masturbation was simply a car-crash in slow motion that could not be looked away from. I was absorbing in every little detail, so that I could embed into the core of my being why I wanted absolutely nothing further to do with these people. I can still remember looking around at the glazed eyes of the people around me - and noticing that I was the only one doing so. Everyone else was eyes-front, smiling, and clapping furiously.

    I made it thru the event, but started looking for information very soon afterwards. This was at the dawn of the internet, and information was scarce (BBS's etc) but it was out there. I became more and more fascinated with the stories from ex-Scientologists who were blowing the whistle.

    Scientologists became disturbing to me from that time on. My perspective on them had totally changed. They were nothing that they claimed to be:

    They were not free of MEST - just look at the trappings of Scientology these days. There is no group more obsessed with MEST. (please forgive the use of Scieno-terminology).

    They were not free-thinkers. They were closed-minded sheople being herded to the slaughter (at least of their bank accounts).

    They were not trustworthy. I was ripped off by several Scientologists, and the Ethics departments did nothing about it because they were upstat OTs.

    They could not communicate freely.

    All in all, they had nothing that was promised by Scientology. L Ron Hubbard was just an old con-man.

    So, THANK YOU Karen#1 for this nice reminder.... and thank god for Scientology Events !!

    Amen GF.

    What does a glitzy show have to do with spiritual freedom? NOTHING!

    What does cheering for a simpering dude in a tuxedo (who stats are egregious) have to do with spiritual freedom? NOTHING

    The icon of success is the same image that LRH used by having all those meaningless certificates on the wall, "L Ron Hubbard Day" in Blubblah, Kansas.

    Who actually buys into that stuff? I'd love to see a survey of attendees at the events asked, "Did you truthfully enjoy the long clapping or the hip, hipping?"

    Even when fully brainwashed, I resented it. How could LRH think that it was something that his followers enjoyed?

    I can see holding celebratory events because it can be a lot of fun and provides an opportunity to socialize and be entertained. The scieno events just seemed phony, unnecessarily so.

    Do you mean they've started giving out free booze so that the reges have a better chance of taking your money?

    The Scientology stage set looks a damn television game show:

    Now all we need is an online comedy show with real freaking funny performers like Saturday Night Live to do that skit.

    Might have trademark issues on using "Saturday Night Live" so we can change that...

    We need some more photoshopped magazine images of crowds.

    I miss those where 60% of the audience were the same 5 people:)

    Great idea HH! I would change the name slightly:

    Freewheel of Misfortune!

    I would also explore other concepts:

    I thought about it.

    But, really....what's the difference whether Scientology shoops 5 people or 5,000 people or zero people?

    There is really only 1 person in the audience anyways.

    The Ideal Scientologist. Same ideals. Same ideas. Same same.

    Despite the promo, Scientologists are supposed to be the same. That's the purpose of Ethics.


    We are free beings.
    We have free choice.
    We choose to be the same.
