    Would be perfect timing with the current media interest in human rights violation sparked by the New Yorker article. :D

    The few times i went to the ao anzo as staff i was utterly horrified at the state of the humans on the rpf. It was like some sort of edwardian torture wherein they had to wear only black rags, couldn't look anyone in the eye, were used for slave labour, had to go running in the middle of the night, got no sleep, little food, no phones or any gadgets really, and were supposed to be sessionable
    daily to get thru fprd! And they put up with this mistreatment for years and
    years. They can't even eat at the same time in the staff mess as anyone else. It seems to me that it goes against most of the Lrh quotes the upper goons throw at you, yet all scientologists let it go on.... How can they sit around the ao watching the rpf skulk around in the shadows like mindless servants?? How could you possibly call yourself a good person if you think this treatment is ok in a church?
    I have no reasonable answer, i cannot fathom it at all. Hopefully though, through your hard work, the world will
    learn how twisted this pathetic cult really is and that some need saving-now.

    How can they stand by and let this happen? Easy. Regular hypnotic-like trance sessions to reinforce the implant that the suffering is in the best interests of a higher number of dynamics. The use of fear helps as well in that the RPFers serve as a vivid warning to anyone who might doubt KSW because, as all Scientologists know, the tech only fails when you don't believe in all of it. Add to the mix the unquestioning acceptance that this lifetime is one of many and unless Scientology frees us from the prison planet we are destined to remain prisoners for all eternity. So far as they are concerned, they are good people, strong enough to stand a little suffering here and there, and its only us weak, abberrated and foul wogs who concern ourselves with such mundane considerations as sympathy who don't understand.

    I know what you mean, Disillusioned.

    I was aware of the RPF as a Scientology public when I was in LA in the 1990's. But the only thing I really saw were people in dark work clothes jogging wherever they went. I didn't really know that much about it.

    It wasn't until around 1998, when they were pushing the whole Net Nanny/Scieno Sitter fiasco down on the public, that what was really going on with the RPF became obvious to me.

    Dan Locke was the PES of ASHO Foundation. I'd known Dan since the mid 80's when he came to our mission on a reg tour and stayed with us for about a week. We went to movies and really had a great time. I considered him a good friend.

    Dan was assigned to help on the RTC mission to get every scientologist to get a scientology website, and to install the net nanny on their computers. I was called in to speak with an RTC rep about this and I told the rep that I worked on the Internet and could not install anything on my computer that would block content. Further, I had been using a computer to "disseminate" scientology since 1987, and I thought it was stupid for any Scientologist to not know what was on the Internet about Scientology. It actually followed the Code of a Scientologist and many others, which I cited for her. So as this RTC rep was getting more and more angry at me for my non-compliance and simple refusal to go along with all this, Dan stopped by to step in and talk to me.

    He pulled me aside and I told him that this does not apply to me and that I would not be doing it. He was fine with it. I could tell that he knew this whole thing was bullshit and totally unworkable, although he would never say that to me. He actually didn't know that much about the Internet and so talked mostly about that.

    A few days later, on break from course, Dan found me and started talking to me about it again. He had obviously been ordered to handle me and he really did not believe that I would be, or should be, handled on this. So I told him the same thing I told him a few days ago, and he left and I got back into the course room.

    Then I didn't see Dan for about a month. This was not normal because Dan would be one of the ones I would actually drop by to see (even tho he was a reg!) to joke around with him when I came to course. It would be "DANNY DAILWIDE!!!" and he would be all "WHAT IS HAPPENING, ALBABY!!" and we would start right in on each other.

    The next time I saw Dan, he was dressed in all black, extremely skinny, and digging in a garden along LRH way across the street from me. I said to myself, "Oh. He's been RPFed. ugh." I was embarrassed for him. I could tell that the pride an SO member usually feels was not allowed for Dan at this time. A little tinge of "this isn't right" bubbled up in my consciousness.

    I called across the street: "DANNY DAILWIDE!!!"

    Dan looked up and smiled and then went immediately back to work.

    A few days later, as I was passing Dan while he was jogging to another job, I said, "Hey man, hurry up and get back to post, a lot of people miss you!" He smiled at me, said nothing, and kept jogging.

    I kept thinking about Dan, and I really didn't like it. I thought Scientology was all about NOT punishing people but here this was so obviously punishment. I knew the guy who was being punished and because he was my friend I could tell what it was doing to him.

    I didn't hear from Dan for another 3 or 4 years. It was after I had already gotten out and posted on the Through the Door website. I think I told somebody on the Internet about my story about Dan and he sent me an email to handle me and get me to take down my Through the Door entry. I refused.

    I believe that Dan is now out of Scientology. I have seen him on Facebook and it appears he is doing very well. I've emailed him a few times and he looks and sounds great and I know he is now much freer.

    Maybe some day no one will ever be assigned to the RPF, because the RPF will have been abolished and those who ran it were tried and convicted of kidnapping and false imprisonment and sent to jail.

    Thanks for that Alanzo. It puts a human face on it.

    Let's not forget those who were forced to divorce their 2d on the rpf or face going into the rpf themselves. If one was in purgatory then they
    weren't allowed to speak to each other, share their bed or lives at all. Rpf was a death sentence for marriages. I'm sure we all know someone who was forced to divorce due to having an out-ethics 2d, co clo, snr has, dir finance, ao, co osa, shelley miscavige ring any bells?
    Has anyone wondered about the inordinately high divorce rate amongst sea org members, or ot's that have a non-ot partner?? Another thing i can't believe they get
    away with.

    This is why ....

    I have a few similar stories myself of seeing good people go into this Gulag system invented so lovingly by "Mankind's Greatest Friend." :puke:

    Which is why I supported Feral's brilliant plan of going to CLO ANZO and calling the bastards out on their crimes of human trafficking and kidnap.

    I believe the effect of this op hasn't yet been seen for how enormous it actually was - it shattered the SO members trying to "handle" us that day and I'm sure it still haunts the Base crew now - that a handful of folks turned up protesting the RPF then the police came and asked the Most Ethical Group on the Planet questions about their crimes. Priceless.

    The SO have been put on notice and it's not just by the anon/ex community either.

    What price being part of the enslavement machine now? Think long and hard about it, lurking OSAspawn.

    Maybe follow up would be in order?

    Surely I'm not suggesting what you should do, but what about doing at least one more, demanding to know where these people are - again?

    And be sure to tell them that it is all being filmed and placed on the Internet and that no one has dropped this and it is NEVER GOING AWAY. Kidnapping and false imprisonment are felonies and they have no statute of limitations.

    They should get the message that as long as there is an RPF, they will continually be hounded - even if they have the police bribed to do nothing.

    If they have moved the RPF since then, then the SO members involved will have done that. And they will be thinking "why are we moving this standard LRH handling so no one finds out about us?"

    I agree that this is one of the best ideas anyone has ever had.

    I do think that its public promotion was dropped too soon, though.

    Again, I am nobody and I am nothing, and I have no right to suggest anything.

    But I'm just sayin'....

    Cult wouldn't let him go for years but a raid that mentions "human trafficking" and "kidnapping" and police concern for his welfare and cult let him free.

    Funny how that works - I wonder if they've quietly freed any more?
