DM belched: "If you think you’ve already grasped the full significance and importance of an Ideal Org, well the fact is that you can hardly imagine — no eval intended — just put that under the category of “not know.”
I glazed over right there, He is going to need a bib soon for the drool
He should use 'the teck' and walk onstage in a gorilla suit.. LOL
It would be difficult to get any cheesier.Like so many of us, I am fascinated by the Shermanspeak. It is unintelligible. Verbs are missing. Introductory phrases have nothing to do with the rest of the sentence. Run on sentences step off the dock and disappear in the drink. Like this:
"And since this recent big push, where I know a lot is demanded from all of us, you, in terms of providing energy and wherewithal to lay down the eternal foundation of Scientology, we can be in terms of all else that comprises the LRH legacy to achieve the advancement of Scientologists up the Bridge, thus by extension in working together to in turn multiply dissemination in the (…) levels, commensurate with what is provided in planetary clearing, well, in light of all that, I should also tell you this ...."
It's just so bizarre!
You're a brave girl, Lori!It was utterly nauseating. The public that attended was sparce to put it mildly and I noticed a few snicker when DM started talking about how fast "we were growing". All in all I am glad it is over and I can wean myself back off the meds it took for me to sit thru that shit without breaking out in laughter.
This event had more Shermanisms than any other before, but I'm guessing it can't be just Mr Sherman responsible for these Twilight Zone speeches. It's a very strange way of talking that uses many more sentences than necessary to relate an idea that can be said in just one or two sentences. No chance in hell anyone learns how to talk or write like that in any school, so if Sherman has formal training as a writer,

No chance in hell anyone learns how to talk or write like that in any school, so if Sherman has formal training as a writer, I assume DM had him study the works of some speechwriter he likes and copy that style. This unique style is also used in blurbs, promos, and video narrations, so Sherman must be the main writer for most of this stuff.
DM I'm sure likes the sound of his own voice a lot, and I think this style of speech is music to his ears because it's just alot of noise without much meaning involved. "Finally and so on", "By way of", "This is so, and even then", "So it is, but there's more", "And all these things, and as if that wasn't enough, there's countless more" etc etc = insane drivel form of talking from a man who loves the sound of his own voice.
The reason people at these events stand up clapping and hooting and jumping up and down like crazies is because they've been droned into insanity after listening to that shit for three or four hours. I've never seen people at graduations or minor local events act or react like that. Those events are like bad game shows with bad game show music (the graduations I've been to all use game show style music and voiceover), but no insane enthusiasm like at DM events. I am curious tho why game show music and game show-style voiceover (when announcing the grads) is used at graduation events. LRH loved watching game shows and decided Scientology is really the greatest game show of all time because its the game where everyone wins?
For whatever it's worth......
It's interesting. My conscience won't let me waste time thinking too much about it....but, the pattern is very rhythmic, the high-sounding, or supposedly, feel-good adjectives banged out quite fast, one after the other. A bit like a chant, you know where a long long prayer has to be gotten through, so the intonation for natural speech, person to person, gets flattened down a bit to a drone. He keeps the voice pitch high though, so that makes it not completely like a droning sound. It is also in a strange way like rap. Not so sharp and short like rap, but it seems it has got rap characteristics.
