    Interesting theory but I wonder if it will be demonstrated by the Martyzone crowd.

    Scilons leave oppressive cult environment to join "free" independent Martyzone.

    According to this theory the freedom from oppression should encourage release of their secret creative self which will manifest itself as a strong creative self which should be more resistant to the oppressive dynamics that existed in the original environment.

    So, if the M&M's are to achieve any kind of organisation it will have to meet the ideological expectations of those who left the original cult, which would make it way less sustainable and also fairly benign; the ideological scilon believes in the rose tinted "Hubbardian" view of a benevolent church that doesn't do disconnection or fair game in any way shape or form.

    If the Martyzone starts to exhibit any of the old oppressive ways, thou shalt disconnect, get ye behind me SP, you're all in lower conditions et al, then according to this theory the strong creative selves will revolt again.

    They should do a study on Martyzoners because they are in an odd inbetween world of free from occult oppression but in denial over the whole B/S of it all, they were looking for something and believed they'd found it in scientology and now cannot accept that they really hadn't and that the real lesson is that you had it all along and you don't need things like scientology to develop it.

    This is kind of off-topic, but not totally. I just found it raises some interesting constitutional points and discusses the inherent conflicts between religion and democracy.
