Blog: Scientology Newspeak - 2014-09-29
In the topsy-turvy Newspeak world of scientology, add to the classic phrases from Orwell's 1984 a fourth: CONTRACTION IS EXPANSION.
As long as the news is preceded with some modifiers "greatest expansion ever" or "exciting news of our accomplishments" or something similar, ANYTHING can be presented as "proof" that the 47X straight up and vertical expansion is continuing unchecked. Even the eradication ("combining") of a Sea Org org.
Closing an SO Org has got to take the cake as far as pigs ear catastrophes presented as silk purse accomplishments. It has never happened before in the history of scientology. Even the anachronistic St Hill Fdn has been kept on artificial respiration for decades (though I assume once Dear Leader gets to the UK for the IAS event the plug will be pulled and that too will be a goner).
