Blog: Critical Q&A 120 - 2017-08-06
The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers left in the comments section of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) How in the world did LRH allow himself to be sealed off from all of Scientology management so thoroughly by David Miscavige and Pat Broeker? LRH was a pretty savvy fellow, so it should have been a red flag when practically the entirety of Int Mgmt was declared. Seems to me he would have had someone's head on a pike for cutting all his comm lines for more then just the time it took to get himself to a safer location. By all I read, David Mayo was his most trusted friend who actually saved his life from illness. You don't just blindly accept someone removing all your appointed officers from the highest positions the minute you leave the vicinity. This is a mystery, shrouded and clouded in history. I do not believe for a minute that LRH would himself have declared all of those hundreds of senior Sea Org members. Can you shed any light on how Broeker and Miscavige isolated LRH, and did LRH really trust those two that much?
(2) Everyone knows about Sigmund Freud's interest in bananas, cigars, and your repressed love for Mommy and hatred of Daddy, but LRH turned his crazy up to 11 and directed all of his fire at Mommy Dearest. For me, Dianetics always comes to a screeching halt when I get to the uterine memories. Thanks to L. Ron's genius, we now know that our reactive minds are packed full of engrams we received while in the womb: memories of our parents fighting, our mother's repeated infidelities, our mother's flatulence and the countless times she tried to abort us. Happy Mother's Day!
