Our man in Ireland ponders Scientology's big plans for the Emerald Isle - 2017-07-18
What is going on in Ireland? Scientology was practically finished off there, and maybe because some of us pointed that out, David Miscavige suddenly started a new set of initiatives there that seem completely superfluous. We thought we'd ask our man on Ireland's west coast, Pete Griffiths, for his thoughts on what's been happening lately on the Emerald Isle.
It appears that David Miscavige has plans for Ireland.
First we were surprised last year when the National Affairs Office of Ireland was opened in Merrion Square around the corner from the Parliament buildings and just two doors down from the Oscar Wilde's former home. This is operated by the Office of Special Affairs and they have a specific role to perform within Scientology — "safepointing" is the term used to describe making an area "safe to expand into" and this involves all the front groups that we know so well. From Narconon and Criminon, through CCHR, The Truth About Drugs, The Way To Happiness, Youth for Human Rights and the Volunteer Ministers, they work tirelessly to get people to think or believe that Scientology are the good guys in society, bringing benefits to all, rather than a racket fleecing individuals and destroying families and bringing nothing but misery.
