Blog: The Way Out Is Not The Way Back In - 2013-06-21
The church of Scientology and David Miscavige have had zero influence on my recent announcement that I will no longer wear the label "Scientologist." Scientology Inc. lost in their effort to silence us and to prevent us from using what we learned of the mind and spirit from L. Ron Hubbard's work. We succeeded in our four-year effort to free the methodologies of Hubbard for independent application in accordance with practitioners' consciences. What prompted me to eschew the "Scientologist" label was the conduct of those we paved the way for while we were withstanding the very best shots Scientology Inc. could and did take at us.
I hold no malice for any particular individuals. I understand – and so too might you if you read and consider Memoirs of a Scientology Warrior – that these folks really are doing everything they can to be the very best Scientologists they think they can be. And that is at the heart of the sickness they exhibit. While we were fighting for their right to practice Scientology, eleven folks instead of practicing it figured out how to monopolize it, at least in their own minds. They put together a corporation that proclaims ownership of independent Scientology under the name Milestone Two Ltd. Based on my experience with its secretly chosen 11 founding member ruling council, having read as much as I could of their charter before giving up after losing count of the points of hypocrisy (and duplication of the original Scn Inc intent and activity, including policing in KSW and a 'justice committee' to deal with 'out-ethics actions which are destructive to statistics') within it, I concluded that if these folks were honest they would call themselves "Scientology Inc, Ltd" or perhaps "Squirrelbusters Light." And that is how I will refer to them from here on out.
I am going to share some facts that led to this conclusion (mostly in the chosen 11's words). But I am not going to single out individuals. I care for them all. I still hope one day they too can graduate from the cult mindset within which they are imprisoned. And while some of them have declared me an SP, in Treason, a Squirrel – and as we shall see worse - I will not return the fire because I understand, like their alleged second biggest bogeyman (apparently I am number one now) David Miscavige, how they are simply an inevitable product of the Scientology system.
