Blog: Critical Q&A 158 - 2018-05-06
The weekly show where I answer questions from viewers left in the comment sections of my Q&A videos or sent to me by email at AskChrisShelton@gmail.com. This week, the questions I answer are:
(1) Hubbard wrote: "If the Org slumps: Don't engage in 'fundraising' or 'selling postcards' or borrowing money. Just make more income with Scientology. It's a sign of very poor management to seek extraordinary solutions for finance outside Scientology. It has always failed. For Orgs as for pcs 'Solve it with Scientology'. Every time I myself have sought to solve finance or personnel in other ways than Scientology I have lost out. So I can tell you from experience that Org Solvency lies in more Scientology, not patented combs or fundraising barbecues. (HCO PL 24 February 1964, 'Urgent, Org Programming')."
Not only have there been too-numerous-to-count fundraisers (especially B-B-Q's!) over the past 20 years, there were 'The Basics' (used exclusively to raise money) and 'The Golden Age of Tech' which basically 'squirreled' the original tech (supposedly another absolute 'no-no') in an attempt to generate more revenue. (In fact, this precipitated a major exodus of long-termers who left in protest.) So, how is it that they continue their 'Fair Game' tactics because it's 'what Ron said to do, and the tech can't be changed'? This might have worked in the past, but has backfired stupendously since the advent of the internet/Anonymous. Is the Bionic Runt really so stupid?
