Blog: High Crime and the Cost of Scientology - 2017-09-02
If LRH had really wanted to save the planet as quickly as possible, why did he make his "tech" so expensive? And therefore, so inaccessible to so many? If the world was going to hell in a handbasket, why charge Scientologists—tasked with saving the planet—hundreds of thousands of dollars? Why not just give them the "tech" and allow them to get to work bailing out our little rock?
How ethical would it be to charge individuals a hundred grand for a vaccine to inoculate themselves against a plague decimating mankind? Of course, if you were a board member of a Bayer…yeah, you'd go along with the price structure. Reminds me of people selling water for $10 a bottle in storm-ravaged Houston.
We can't talk about religion and money without talking about the highest-priced faith-based organization in the world: the Church of Scientology. One thing for sure: it's not for the poor. Nor even for the middle class. Scientology is for the able—financially able, that is—and If you want to get to the top of the Bridge and "go free," then you'd better be in pretty damned good financial shape. Or be related to someone who is—or was. (At the least, you'd better quit your teaching job and start selling high-priced MEST.)
