  1. Former Scientology insiders describe a world of closers, prospects, crushing quotas and coercion

    http://www.tampabay.com/news/scientology/article1201166.ece

    Hy Levy lived in terror of what would happen if he didn't make his number, a weekly sales target of $200,000. The money was due every Thursday by 2 p.m.

    No excuses.

    Often when he failed, his bosses exiled him to the kitchen to scrub pots. Sometimes they made him eat only beans and rice for a week. They publicly humiliated him, calling him a loser, a saboteur. They got in his face, screaming, swearing. You soulless bastard!

    He said they used profanity a lot where he worked: the Church of Scientology.

    Former Scientology insiders describe a world of closers, prospects, crushing quotas and coercion

    By Joe Childs and Thomas C. Tobin, Times Staff Writers

    Hy Levy lived in terror of what would happen if he didn't make his number, a weekly sales target of $200,000. The money was due every Thursday by 2 p.m.

    No excuses.

    Often when he failed, his bosses exiled him to the kitchen to scrub pots. Sometimes they made him eat only beans and rice for a week. They publicly humiliated him, calling him a loser, a saboteur. They got in his face, screaming, swearing. You soulless bastard!

    He said they used profanity a lot where he worked: the Church of Scientology.

    For 16 years Levy was a "registrar" selling Scientology counseling and training services at the church's worldwide spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. He toiled morning to night, part of a team driven by fear and religious conviction to bring the church millions of dollars each week by "closing" people — church terminology.

    So it appears this was all rolled into the existing "Inside Scientology ..." 2009 project index where "The Truth Rundown" series was/is hosted:

    http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2009/reports/project/

    I sure do like the sound of "INSIDE SCIENTOLOGY - The Money Machine" as a new "followup report" series - hella lots they can do with that! <3 <3 <3

    I was looking up refs to Big League Sales and Closing Techniques, the book Hubbard based CoS's sales tech on, and I came across some nice Hubbard quotes in a 1985 news article:
    Does anyone know what Hubbard source they're quoting from, especially about phone taps and listening devices? (Probably something that surfaced during the Julie Titchbourne case.)

    Nothing we didn't know, but very powerful from a first-person account. I'm glad more and more ex's are willing to tell their stories publicly.

    Is Hy Levy an "ex"?
  19. The Wrong Guy Member

    Agreed. This was an outstanding article. Very powerful. It's also an excellent introduction for newcomers to the cause.

    I can hear it now: "Now remember - make sure you don't read the newspaper tomorrow!"

    Man oh day - Hy Levy serves up a tasty appetizer in the main piece, but Brian Culkin (FTW!) serves up a full course meal in the second piece afterwards. Good on him! And they both make great follow-up timeline-wise, for bringing the next chapter much more current yet still building stories of those who spoke out in the truth rundown segments.

    (drooling)

    To any publics or staff who are still in that may read this...
    You know what Hy said is true and some of you may have experienced the same.
    Its time to leave and be free. Please ask yourself... if what you are doing is helping people or saving the planet in any way?
    You had good intentions going in and wanting to help people is avery admirable, but you must have doubts by now welling up inside you and please know your doubts are valid. Are your intentions you had when you signed up the same as they are now? Or are they directed towards only making money and the fear of not reaching your weekly quota? How can reaching a weekly quota be about helping others and saving the planet?

    Look beyond Scientology's doors and look and listen to the data that is out there for you waiting to be discovered.
    It is not entheta, it is the answer to all of your doubts.

    I love this video, but I don't care for the ending , it's too cartoony for the feeling you get when you are listening to these personal accounts. Especially the music twang and the fart at the very end. Kinda makes it sound like these people were kidding.
    I think this great video needs a nice ending. A hear felt ending. Not something cheap.

    Jeebus! I am all sappy tonight. It all started with Hy's video.
    Time for bed.

    I believe the entire video is cribbed from a scientology (narconon perhaps) production with anti-scientology captions added to make it appear the people have left the cult. Actually what they left was a druggie lifestyle. None of the reworked video is meant to be serious.

    sorry ^^ post referring to this video

    Indie, as is Brian Culkin according to the Marty plug for this initial "Part 1" unveiling (note indication on main index saying there's more to come after tonight's Sunday paper installment, for Monday!)
