Yes, all true. But when you make it uplines, the grass ain't any greener.... It gets even worse and worse. Alot of stories of abuse from people who jumped ship since DM has been there.
Barb is funny. I met her briefly over a year ago.
I never did get to see her biker's jacket - but that's my fault.
Barb, do you remember me?
I'm sorry Lulu!!!! I did NOT mean to piss you off with that. Did you know that they felt that way?
I audited some people and the attitude came out in the session. They were telling some story about being sent to PAC for a project and how they didnt want to go and ED Int had to handle them on it, but even he didnt wanna be involved either.
What a sad, sad situation we were dealing with. I was there through alot of that too. I have had my fare share of cramped berthing and beans and rice and dodging roaches, the works.
And PAC was the dumping ground. Its really unjust, isnt it?
I believe that may have started with various LRH telexes that I recall offered very scathing criticisms of PAC or it at least gave some INT people justification for such a viewpoint. LuLu you may recall some of the LA D advices that were critical of PAC and LA in general.
She said that she is not that Barb. I'll take her word for it.
In the 80s, Int Management decided to hire Trout's agency to do a positioning for Scientology, as part of its never-ending-though-futile attempt to change the public's perception of it to being a mainstream religion rather than a nutso cult.
I don't know everything that was said to DM and company after they came through. Two of the things I know for sure that were said were:
1) Your buildings look like shit. We can help you get people in the door, but as soon as they see what the place looks like, they'll walk out again. You need to renovate them.
2) Get rid of the name "Scientology".
As you know, Trout's agency was not kept on. (There's a little bit about this in the Time Magazine article about Scientology. You can look it up here if you want. http://www.skeptictank.org/hs/dancult.htm)
But sounds like DM took piece of advice number 1. Not long after this, the whole "renovations movement" in Scientology started big time.
