In Scientology, every dollar you own is under constant attack - 2019-02-24
Rod Keller has another lesson for us today about Scientology's front groups and fundraising...
Being a Scientologist means constant exposure to fundraising efforts. Above the cost of the Bridge to Total Freedom and the cost to open Ideal Orgs there are solicitations for donations for causes large and small. The large donations are always to the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) and donors can attend the annual Patron's Ball for answering the call to fund Scientology's many Fourth Dynamic, or 4D causes. But where is the IAS when each 4D group needs money? Apparently absent as members regularly receive requests from these groups.
Is this campaign for the Foundation for a Drug Free World or is it United for Human Rights? It doesn't matter much as Sea Org member Betsy at the Los Angeles Org apparently runs them both and needs copies of L. Ron Hubbard lectures in Chinese to give to visiting human rights activists. The IAS apparently doesn't have the $560 to make that a reality. Not that it really costs Scientology $14 per copy to print. It's probably a dollar or two and the rest is profit.
