Blog: Scientology's PAC Base in Hollywood During the Civil Unrest of 2020 - 2020-06-05
Scientology's Pac Base in Hollywood, along with all other Hollywood area Scientology Orgs, went into a complete lockdown and boarded up its facilities in preparation for civil unrest following the horrific police murder of George Floyd. Scientology's craftsmanship in boarding up was excellent in terms of fit and finish. However, this skill was limited to Scientology's real estate only. Scientology did not offer to help anyone else, particularly the many small minority-owned businesses in the area surrounding Pac Base a/k/a Big Blue.
While Scientology's Hollywood Orgs had earlier distributed Scientology's self-serving COVD-19 pamphlets to area businesses, this is where Scientology's help stopped. The Church of Scientology did not offer to board up neighboring businesses and thereby missed a major opportunity. Imagine if Scientology Volunteer Ministers had been shown in the television coverage of the world media boarding up small businesses on Hollywood, Sunset, and Melrose Boulevards where the rioting and real danger was going on. Scientology Hollywood missed a major opportunity to actually help the local community when and where it mattered at ground zero. Scientology's focus remained fixated on its real estate alone.
