    Who would have even think 10 years ago that Mike Rinder and Marty Rathbun would escape and seek refuge and help! :confused2:

    Knowing there will be help out there and it's possible to rebuild a new life may make a difference.

    The vast majority of SO, int base staff , top management and original messengers are now out, well established, and sveral of them are happy to help whoever wants to leave and be safe.

    There are\had been several former OSA staff here on the board, and former volunteers...most of them are doing just fine persuing a normal life, out of the cult, succeeding in rebuilding a rewarding life. The camaraderie of the Sea Org still exists out of the cult, and is even stronger since most are out now, and many keep in touch, with genuine friendship sharing.

    True. 27 years in for me....its tough now....even though 15 years out.

    That is a life time of the best years of "making it."

    Luckily I was only a "public" for four months and in the S.O. for 11-1/2 months. I shrugged it off pretty easily. I was young. My time in the S.O. and my leaving was not dramatic. I was still on good terms when I left, they liked me. etc. My problem was I didn't pay much attention to the cult for 25 years after that and actually thought they were OK and just "misunderstood" by the public. In other words I had no idea, (zero) how bad and how criminal they had gone over that time. This mistaken idea almost cost me my life in 2011 when they roped me back in as a public. My recovery from that over the next two, two and a half years was very difficult.

    We had several posts about this long ago on ESMB; if I had the money I'd open a group home for the tossed away cult old-timers where they could live out their lives with at least some measure of dignity. Not just Hubbard's cult but for ex-members of any cult with no other options.

    So, to cult members reading this, here is my Christmas Message to you: ;-) don't burn your bridges. You are going to need a Plan B. All those wogs, family and friends, you disdain now.... you'll need them to help you get you life back on track when you come to your senses. Because as the illustrious ESMB sage Helluva Hoax has said, "All $cientologists are ex-$cientologists, they just don't know it yet."

    For the last two decades, my Christmas gift to myself, has been to ensure that none of my kids would ever be subject to being recruited into the Sea Org or staff.

    OSA needs to exercise more caution with future OPS particularly those involving posters on ESMB.

    Some may respond!

    I don't quite understand what you meant.

    But certainly, all OPS of any nature may find ESMB ''sheeps'' a tough herd to control....:biggrin:
    as it is more a heteroclite group than a homogeneous herd

    That would required seveal herdsmen to run after all them having fun and running in all directions :biggrin:

    Selectively enforced rules are good humor, but then some ex's weren't looking for a lonely hearts glee club to adhere to anyway, "Gummy" - ever so respectfully, Ma2.

    I take it as a good news -- ESMB serves its purpose.

    Wow, I almost forgot that people still worry about this stuff. The way the DOJ and FBI are carrying on it makes OSA appear childish.

    Therefore, even in the hypothetically absurd scenario of an ex-Scientologist asserting their inalienable rights to utter anything, such rights have not yet been issued/authorized for release, rendering their exercise of such rights as both illegal and immoral.

    hahahahahha hahaha ahahaha aha hahahah ahahaha

    It is not part of Scientology, as far as I know.

    I suspect it was actually written by someone other than LRH, who was NOT liking the idea of an autopsy being conducted to determine LRH's exact actual cause of death.

    While there might be some of that going on, I think that the focus (pour the coal on their real purpose) is more tilted towards a campaign of wire tapping...errh theta trapping the White House and POTUS and the Congress. Let's ask NSA what is going on in the Scientology office of National Affairs in Washington D.C.
    Of course there are the 2 legal cases recently initiated against RTC and David Miscavige so OSA must be having to hire 100's more PIs and purchase tonnes more electronic surveillance equipment to say nothing of the cracking of the complainants and their legal teams communications. ( the question is will the dossiers be stored in Russia or the Trementina, NM vaults)
    I was just thinking the other day if I am short enough to put on the hat of COB to open the upcoming opening of the next Ideal Morgues and thus providing cover for DM as he slips out... errh flies out the backdoor of his intergalactic Bluebird being built by the very successful General Electric.
