Reminds me the systematical answer of some scienos while Paris OPrg was having the biggest problems because Hubbard was indicted (and has been sentenced) for fraud and extortion: then, the Org was really terrible, ugly, badly washed, badly decorated, etc. What were they saying, though? That when they were approaching the org, they were "feeling all this theta" flowing from the org. Happily, I was'nt agreeing: that org was one of the worse filthy houses of the area; just an image : they had an arson (or a fire, I dunno!) and the peices of beds and so on were exposed for more than two months just before the org, in the street, probably because they had'nt the 40 $ to get a truck to trash the filth.

Or simply get his own wife jailed for his own crimes, like the f* bastard did.

Yes!! Sure, now he "is" more effective than ever...

Not only had he no care at all, but he disdained and disliked them completely: took them for what they were for him: people to be delusioned, lied to, frauded, extorted, killed if needed. My guesss is that he thought the worse of himself: he described himself so well under the 1.1 traits and characters in Science of Survival: that was him! > So began my journey out of the church.

Once, I wrote a doubt condition letter to Hubbard, asking him some questions... "he never received or answered "... despite the "SO ED 1" line, who promised a reply to every letter! Another time, I wrote him to indicate errors in his writings: he did never received that one neither...
