There are many websites such as markrathbun.wordpress.com and www.scientology-cult.com that are devoted to documenting the situation of the Church of Scientology. I suggest anyone interested in evaluating this scene take the time to actually look at what data these sites have to offer and consider for themselves the validity of the information.
Some data cannot be refuted. For instance, it is a fact that the membership of the Church has decreased over the past couple of decades, NOT increased as we would be led to believe by the Int PR events. And most important of all is the decline and currently abysmal amount of TRAINING and AUDITING that is occurring in the Church today.
The intent of “My Eval” is to hopefully provide a bright idea for handling all of the above. You can read the full eval if you like. But, the primary handling I propose is to start (or at least continue in a concerted effort) spreading the message “David Miscavige must go.”
This message undercuts any debate about religious beliefs or the Founder and focuses on the correct target. And I believe that if carried on long enough and effectively enough, it WILL either compel Mr. Miscavige to step down — or embolden current executives enough to remove him.
But even more importantly, it has the potential to reach both staff and public who know something is wrong but don’t know what to do about it. Plus, this handling is something that anyone can actually do, and really does open the door to a solution.
What do you think, will it work?
