As expected, you do not understand what I am saying. That's OK since you continue to give me the opportunity to make my points.Mostly I'm here because I'm a Scientology watcher.
Pretty much everything gets reported here.
I don't see the tech as intrinsically evil. Its not perfect
and has gone off the rails in some places. As time has
progressed its been used with less than benign purposes,
mostly connected to being driven by monetary standards.
What I've written about in this post is something that happened more than 40 years ago when I did grade 4. This was
delivered as free student auditing as were all the grades.
Delivered with only the intention of enhancing me. This is
the intention common in the freezone and I know many who
have befitted. I pretty much reject the Admin, and I studied all of it, and consider command intention in Scn is evil.
I've spent 7 years regularly protesting with Anon and for
17 years or so written many posts castigating CO$. I am
unusual in that I didn't have bad experiences while associating with CO$. When I had one I left for good. Some years later
I found the internet and was shocked by the stories I read.
You talk about the "intention" of various practitioners as if this meant something. Of course their intention is to do good. Unfortunately, that is part of the trap. If someone's intention is to do good, you think, certainly that's going to happen. That isn't true.
And, once again you talk about vague "benefits". "... many who have benefited". How long did these "benefits" last? Exactly what happened? How are these "benefits" different from what happens naturally from living and learning? How many people became believers, trapped in the endless quest to become one of Hubbard's homo novis? You never say. You never seem to even look at the "tech" in this way.
Note that "feeling great" for a few minutes or a few hours is not a benefit. At best, it is a side effect.
You seem to think that becoming a believer in Hubbard's never-to-be-achieved higher states is a good thing. I think what someone believes is their business but actively working to get others trapped in Hubbard's promises is evil, regardless of your intentions.
