Blog: A "Fact" to Wonder About - 2019-07-07
A new trend in scientology "promotion" is for orgs trying to "go ideal" to promote the virtues of their cities.
They seek to recruit people to man these "ideal orgs" from other areas of the country and presumably other nations. There has recently been a competition of sorts between Columbus, Austin and Kansas City over the virtues of their respective cities, ranging from the number of fountains ("more than Rome") to proximity to vast numbers of people ("within 600 miles of 50% of the population of the US) and of course "best BBQ" or "live music capital" or "lots of universities"... It's a very odd idea — one would think a place that is investing in ten million dollars worth of facilities would have enough people to man it, but that's not the way of scientology. Their motto is not "if we build it, they will come" but more like "if we build it we will send the people to make it look like they came."
