There is not likely to be much breaking news on Debbie Cook's mission for a while: Cook re-iterates intention to handle it internally. So, let us not continue to kid ourselves that it is as simple as getting people to pledge allegiance to "following policy." People dedicatedly defending David Miscavige fully believe they are following policy.
David Miscavige has quite apparently implanted a new End Phenomena (the state or ability achieved by participating in a given grade of one on one counseling) for the auditing technique known as Objectives. It is evident from the fact that Objectives are being run in huge, arbitrary blocks of time on corporate Scientologists at all levels of Scientology. You can see the latest evidence in the mass email below this post from Barbara Dews, a prominent "Service Consultant" for Flag (Corporate Scientology's "Mecca of Technical Perfection" in Clearwater Florida) sent to corporate Scientologists far and wide. The missive seeks to demonstrate that everybody at every level of the Bridge ought to condition their minds to accept the need for massive doses of Objectives. The email ends off with this brag as to time of delivery:
In the TRs and Objectives course room in the Coachman, we've been completing people in a average of 130 hours.
