Scientology's Biggest Enemy

Anonymous' biggest ally in its effort to bring down the corporation of Scientology is ... David Miscavige, the leader of the Church of Scientology.

By this I mean that Miscavige has done and is doing more to damage the Church of Scientology than anyone else in its short history.
  • He has destroyed the church hierarchy,
  • He has destroyed the technology,
  • He has abandoned any past workable activities within the church,
  • He has gotten rid of or destroyed any effective leadership within the church,
  • He has created enemies everywhere in the world,
  • He has created an operating climate within the church that promotes criminal activity as the preferred method of operation,
  • He has converted the church from a service organization to a parasitic donation-with-no-exchange organization,
  • He has destroyed any credibility the church might have had by spouting his easily disproven lies,
  • He has destroyed any legitimacy for his "religion" by always rejecting religious actions and always embracing aggressive business practices,
  • He has and is alienating all the members of his church by treating them as enemies or, at best, a large money bag that can simply be squeezed for more money constantly,
  • He has committed and continues to commit crimes that put the whole church at risk,
  • And so much more.
The Church of Scientology is weak and getting weaker. The membership is shrinking so fast it could be said to be imploding. Money is flowing out of the church much faster than Miscavige can force the parishioners to cough up more. The church can no longer spend money on its attacks in the quantity it used to.

However, do not be fooled into thinking that Miscavige is not dangerous. He is unstable and unpredictable. He is capable of great evil and he does not feel constrained by laws, ethics or morality. While his actions become less and less effective, they can also be randomly destructive.

One side note: I am truly sorry that those near Miscavige are getting hurt, and it is an unfortunate side-effect that the work to get rid of the criminals of Scientology does cause Miscavige to be even more cruel to those near him. I can only hope that those people can escape. However, the fact that people near Miscavige are getting hurt is no reason to mitigate the attacks.

When Anonymous says they are attacking the corporate evil that is the Church of Scientology, Miscavige "knows" that they are attacking him, personally. He is taking it very, very seriously.

So, it is important that Anonymous not take it seriously. The best weapon to use against Miscavige is Miscavige. Meaning: Laugh at him. He can't stand being laughed at. Point out what an absolute fool he is. Let everyone know what he has done and is doing. He is insane. He is a criminal. He is unstable. Laugh at him because he is ridiculous. He may just take the final actions to destroy the corporation of Scientology himself.

I've seen various suggestions about what the theme of Anonymous' May protest should be. May I suggest "Laugh!"?

  2. Bravo, bravo. For someone who worked (tried to) in his vicinity for 15 years, you sound just like someone who was there too and knows his personality inside & out.

  3. Hmm. It's sad that there is no truth at all to your claims about Scientology. We are growing in numbers at an exponential rate -- you can see this in any Church or mission you walk into. There are more people on course in orgs than I have ever seen before, in more than 30 years of being on lines. The re-release of the basic Scientology materials a few months ago has sparked a boom like we've never seen before, both in memberships and in the wins of the people doing the basics. The latest LRH birthday event just last weekend was monumental. Auditing hours are astronomical. Book sales were astronomical. I don't know what world you live in, but the real world of Scientology is flourishing and prospering as never before. And I'll bet you don't have the guts to print the actual truth here in this comment.

  4. Nice blog. Would read again. A+++

  5. Thanks for your comments. This is exactly how Anonymous operates and we will continue to do so. When the OSA posted their fake bomb threat on YouTube and tried to paint us all as terrorists we responded with humour and defused the situation effectively. Nobody but those trapped within Scientology believe we are terrorists after having seen just how long Longcat is long or having tasted out delicious cake.

  6. Dear Scientologist,

    In response to your recent letter. You wrote:

    "Hmm. It's sad that there is no truth at all to your claims about Scientology."

    That's a bit ironic, coming from someone who is forbidden from 99% of the Internet, where all the evidence of the truth resides. Don't you feel embarrassed making claims when you don't know anything?

    "We are growing in numbers at an exponential rate -- you can see this in any Church or mission you walk into. There are more people on course in orgs than I have ever seen before, in more than 30 years of being on lines."

    Sorry, do you have actual statistics on that? Any proof? What does "more people" mean? Five, up from three? What, exactly, are you talking about?

    "The re-release of the basic Scientology materials a few months ago has sparked a boom like we've never seen before, both in memberships and in the wins of the people doing the basics."

    Ah! It becomes clearer. When David Miscavige proclaimed himself the new "Source" and rewrote all the books (the "basics") he forced all "good Scientologists" to throw away all of Hubbard's books and buy his. And then he demanded that they all take his new "basics" courses to unlearn Hubbard and learn the new Miscavige. So that's the "boom" in the course room! That, dear Scientologist, is not called "expansion", that is called "sucking every last dime from existing public".

    "The latest LRH birthday event just last weekend was monumental. Auditing hours are astronomical."

    Oh, did Miscavige do that little trick he does where he flashes some graph on the screen with the little exploding top? Always loved those. Doesn't show the time period. Doesn't show the scale. Doesn't let the image linger so you can't really study the graph. You fell for that old trick? Great.

    "Book sales were astronomical."

    I'll bet.

    "I don't know what world you live in, but the real world of Scientology is flourishing and prospering as never before."

    On the other hand, I do know what world you live in. Some day, your little bubble will pop and reality will come crashing in. It will hurt, a lot. I am sorry for you.

    "And I'll bet you don't have the guts to print the actual truth here in this comment."

    You send me some "actual truth" and we'll see about that.

  7. it's amazing that anyone still thinks $cientology is alive. that's weird and like head up and locked or maybe head up butt, peeking out of bellybutton. w00t!

  8. Looks like our Scientologist commentator needs to go back to Algebra class. Here's an idea. Look at your American Census reports for religions between the inception date for Scientology and the last census. Now, plot a line going through all the points. What do you get? Hint: it ain't an exponential curve.

    It's not your fault, buddy. We know you're just trying to avoid the Rehabilitation Project Force gulag for failing to handle negative press on the Internet.

    We'll see you Scientologist propagandists on April 12th for Operation Reconnect. I'm sure your kin would love to hear from you and offer you a plane ticket home.

  9. How long do you think it will take before the "Church" falls apart. Months, years, decades?

    What will that "falling apart" look like? Will outside authorities (such as the FBI) be involved?

    What cracks should outsiders look for as indications of that "falling apart"?

    Your site is great and very informative.

  10. Don't let silly things like statistics stop you! Filling out your religion on a census form is obviously "out ethics" and the lower numbers actually indicate HIGHER membership.

    Algebra? Pff.

  11. Excellent post! Anonymous won the PR war against David, and it's nice to see Scientologists taking a principled stand so openly against the crooked heirarchy above.

  12. I'm fairly certain at this point that the Scientologist posting earlier has been redirected from the page or has chosen to ignore us, and it is sad that it is this way.
    How much does it take to break a man's will like that, in a way that he is completely unaware of the process, so that he follows blindly the backwards logic that others lay before him?

    Operation Reconnect, scheduled to take place on April 12th, is for the families and friends. Bring those separated by the lies and manipulation of $cientology back together. Tell your friends, tell your family. Get involved.

    Hug your loved ones. :)

  14. The question of when will the Church of Scientology "fall" and what form that will take is an excellent question. I hope to post more of my thoughts on this soon.

    The fall of the Church of Scientology is going on now. In fact, it has been going on for quite a few years. The good news is that the velocity of the fall of the church is increasing dramatically.

    The evidence is all around. Scientologists are leaving in larger numbers than ever before. Information about the crimes, lies, abuses and fraud are getting out and cannot be suppressed by the CoS. Mainstream press is covering the CoS "controversy" and the church, inevitably, does not come out looking good. The church's lies are no longer believed automatically, they are being questioned everywhere. People are no longer being frightened into silence.

    Throughout the world, the efforts to expose the truth are successful and the CoS efforts to hide the truth are failing.

    The "falling apart" looks like what you are seeing right now.

    For those who have been in the fight for a long, long time, this is a wonderful time. But obviously, it isn't over yet.

    So how soon will the criminals reap the consequences of their crimes? I wish I knew. Rumors are that some things will be happening "fairly soon", but I don't know. I hope. Seeing the criminals led away in handcuffs will be a good day.

    One additional point. Unfortunately, the U.S. legal system favors those with lots of money. And Miscavige has lots of money. He will probably throw all the other CoS executives under the wheels of justice to try to buy time, and he will spend any amount to delay and obfuscate his own trial. So this whole thing may drag out for years.

    So, when will it all be "over"? It may take awhile.

  15. One more thought. David Miscavige looks like a runner to me.

    When things start looking bad for him, expect him to go personally supervise some beautiful, vast new "church" in a country with no extradition.

  16. Just Bill - he already has! Miscavige recently announced plans to move the CoS HQ to South Africa and has just bought a huge castle there. I'm not sure if the US has an extradition treaty with South Africa or not, but it sounds like he's already started just what you suggest.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I heard about the purchase of the Kyalami Castle in South Africa and Miscavige's plans.

    While there is an extradition treaty between the U.S. and South Africa, it is what's called a "dual-criminality" agreement. That is, there must be a law in South Africa that recognizes the same crime as the person is accused of in the U.S. with a punishment of at least one year.

    Of course, it all depends on which of his crimes Miscavige was to be extradited on--assuming, of course, that he is accused and he does run.

    All-in-all, it doesn't sound like the best place to run to.

  18. Just Bill said:

    "The good news is that the velocity of the fall of the church is increasing dramatically."

    Now, this IS on an exponential curve. LOL

    And I believe the country he'll run to is Zimbabwe which I also hear does NOT have extradition as they "hate" the U.S.

  19. As far as SA is concerned, the scilons have wormed their way deep into the government, with narconon, criminon, applied scholastics, the arts festival, et al. As NGOs, they make the "services" available and the gov, at this stage, is very accepting of their "help".
    It will take a concerted effort by SA anons (ZAnons) to open the eyes of the decision makers in the gov.

  20. Re: South Africa

    There was a rumor that Scientology wasn't actually declining in South Africa. I don't know how anyone would be able to determine that. Surveys? Actual facts?

    It is doubtful that any Scientology activity is actually translating into much money. We'll see.
