Blog: Dissociation and Denialism - 2013-02-27
Disconnection in the church of Scientology is as blatantly applied as ever; even while it is vehemently denied. It is denialism, and a sort of dissociation, playing out in real time before our eyes. If you haven't seen it already, please read this story concerning the great pianist Mario Feninger and the wonderful soul Allen Barton, Mario Feninger Disconnects From Help. It demonstrates denialism and dissociation in living color.
I have been closely following this matter for some time. I came very close to initiating fundraising for Mario on this blog. The only reason I did not was because Mario made it very clear to Allen that he would prefer not to receive the inevitable blowback of being associated with our types. The story is very competently told by Ortega and it speaks for itself, so I will not focus on the details of Mario's plight.
Instead, I will focus on the journey of Allen Barton (for related earlier post see, Beverly Hills Playhouse.) Look at what his simple act of kindness and care has wrought. Examine the responses he received - disconnections, while denying 'disconnection' is an active policy - from Scientologists. Consider their 'rationale.' Consider the factors that resulted in such obvious denialism.
