The Commodore Hubbard/Xenu-Bridge 'Freezone' serves a function as a kind of half way house for members of $cientology, and that's good, but, IMO, too often it seeks to attach itself to humanitarian efforts, such as that of ex-Sea Org member Chuck Beatty, identify itself with such efforts, and use them as a means of recruiting those, still confused by their Scientology experience, "back into the Xenu-tech fold." I suppose that's to be expected, still it's a bit unwholesome. IMO.
The L. Ron Hubbard fan club folks - despite their best efforts at "ARC" and "PR" and presenting "acceptable truths" to the readers of ESMB, have a hard time recognizing what the 'Anderson Commission Report' recognized over 40 years ago, that Scientology was a mental-healing-coated Brainwashing Cult:
Personally, on a thread such as this, so valuable in its contribution in providing information and insights, and so heart-wrenching, I wish Terrill would at least omit that photo of the grinning Hubbard, standing on the deck of his 'Flagship', a photo he presents in every post.
While some are innocently unaware of it, and others more knowingly prefer to sweep in under the rug, Scientology has been a deceptive and abusive personality cult - per its founders design - since the 1960s. What's changed - more than anything - is that its outer-"mental healing"-layer has diminished in thickness and spaciousness, and the Cult is now in a preservation phase, more than a growth phase.
By the way, the 'Data Series' is a non-confidential portion of the larger body of confidential writings called "Scientology Intelligence Tech."
Those enamored with the Data Series may wish to examine "the rest of the picture," so as to gain a better perspective.
As its "unwholesome" for me to publically state that I am a help point and relay help point for those leaving the SO , and to "unwholesomely" stick my phone no using my "unwholesome" real name( and I'm not ex-directory) into a public place where the, presumably " wholesome" OSA bots can see, I have a question.
Why dosn't the " wholesome " Veda put his real name and address and phone no here also so as to prevent ex SO members to be helped by
" unwholesome" dilletantes like me?
