I said in another post, I don't care for fanatics on either side. The common denominator of all fanatics is that they see things in black and white only. Either "all good" or "all bad". There isn't such a thing or person which is "all good" or "all bad". Inspection and differentiation is the best cure for fanaticism, both for brainwahsed Scientologists and also for their vehement critics, provided the person wants to let go of his fanaticism and fixed ideas that block his free observation.
As a public I was not aware of these black ops at the time. I was aware of good and bad service, of humane treatment and robotic treatment. Some of the service and tech results were fantastic, some not. I learned to differentiate.
Soderqvist1: you didn’t gain anything!
It is only a delusion, if you don’t believe me, then ask your friends, neighbors, and colleagues people who know you if they are inspired, or impressed by your gains? I condemn your middle-way path regarding Scientology just as I condemn Nazism or Ritual Cannibalism. But I take a middle-path way when it comes to abortions, as evidenced in our abortion laws here in Sweden which works just fine. And even if something is good in Scientology, it is built upon “bloods Money”, it is unethical to have anything to do with it, in the same way we don’t accept Doctor Joseph Mengele’s scientific findings from his experiments upon Jews in Auschwitz, and Hubbard has his victims too!
