I'm not saying it all was....there have been and continue to be some stellar SUB-Products, and very many well-meaning and kick ass auditors and sups.
The point is that in the 70's, before the SO was so "present", there were some big booming orgs.
I have not seem that pattern repeated with any regularity, and in fact, quite the opposite with false stats, overt products etc.
It is not my intention to invalidate the Individual contribtuions...but the SO as a "managment group" appears to be a real failure in terms of consistently getting products...vis a vis big booming orgs...
OK. I get what you're saying. You're suggesting that the SO is crap and the general health of Scn as a whole was/is worse compared to what might have been had it not been there. Yeah - totally agree.
Assumimg for one moment that the OT3 story is true (critics please suspend your disbelief temporaily) then putting a bunch of people in uniforms that dramatise that incident and then not train and audit them past OT3 was a disaster waiting to happen. Doing it with kids who have next to no life experience either (as in the CMO) was just f---ing ludicrous.
