You are protesting our actions. We think that is O.K. (if unbearably tedious and lacking in original thought) because we (well, I can't speak for everyone) believe that the free exchange of ideas is of value. A world where people are discouraged from protesting is a very stagnant and frightening place.
You give up: SOLVED.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: They've declared war on our way of life. We're to be assimilated.
Thousands of people have left Scientology and told the stories of their suffering. They are easily available to read. Without them, we wouldn't be here.
I am not in jail and have been protesting for a while. If you are upset you do not understand why we protest. We protest for you.
It isn't anons. You may not know us, but we know each other. None of us come out of the org and assault each other.
Hamas or Likud?
And there are 50,000 that say Scientology is good...read their stories.
Either Herro lives vicariously thru ScnTo or maybe Herro is ScnTo's sock or Moxon is a sour twat.
No question on Moxon, case closed.
Torah or Koran?
OK, OK, but can I have a conversation with a computer virus?
Trust me...you are not helping me in any way!
You know each other?...anybody can wear a mask how would you know?
But we can teach you to do THIS
Because no one with a mask on has ever assaulted anyone at a protest.
I used to gaze into the Abyss, but then it got a restraining order against me.
Can Scientology do THIS?
Guinan: Aren't you gonna tell me you have to assimilate me?
Third of Five: You wish to be assimilated?
Guinan: No, but that's what you... things do, isn't it?
Third of Five: You will be assimilated.
Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge: Yes, but before that happens, could we ask you a few questions?
Semitics or semantics?
Before that happens I will do THIS
"When you hear scathing and brutal criticism of someone which sounds just a bit strained, know that you have your eye on overts against that criticized person" - L. Ron Hubbard
Did he say that before or after he threw people off the ship with their legs tied?
ScnTO is starting to sound a little plaintive. It all gets easier when you muster up the courage to stop the barrage of defensive derailing and actually listen. Information won't poison you. You're capable of recognizing truth from falsehood. Have the self-respect to give some real thought to the other point of view. It's the adult thing to do. It's communication.
Ask Mike Rinder who joined the Sea Org on the Apollo at 18...he would have seen something like that...he wouldn't have joined if it was true.
I have read far too many of their stories and they are disquieting, to put it mildly. They think they can change stoplights at will and cure illness by touching people and make people call them from far away by thinking about them. I have read more "success stories" than I care to think about and not one of them made me think that being a Scientologist would be a good thing. Even the ones that weren't batshit crazy, and there were many that were, were troubling in the author's overwhelming desire to be special, and important and superior to mere mortals. Benevolently superior perhaps, but nothing in their writing demonstrates any actual superiority and they end up appearing just sad and pathetic.
I would have said something like THIS
Here is a testimonial that maybe more real to you...you are trying stop things like this...
"About 5 years ago I had lost my mother to a heartattack and witnessed the whole incident. This affected me greatly as it was such a huge loss for a child to lose a parent. Since then I have “learned to live with it”, but inside I never really did.
My boyfriend and I attended the Dianetics Seminar this past week and we decided we are going to be partners on this journey. My boyfriend, ran me through my mothers death. Not knowing what to expect we were both surprised at the extent of the grief that came up.
I didn't realize how stuffed down my emotions were. The relief I felt was truly amazing; with something so simple as Dianetics Auditing! Now I know I can remember Mom's death and not feel bad.
I thank my auditor and supervisors in helping me attack my negative charge. Now I will be in charge. I can't wait for my next win!" - A.B.
I asked you. Now, you answer. That's how communication works.
I am trying to stop things like THIS
That should be protested!
WE have fun and beauty and complexity; you have profit and ADVANCEMENT
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The economics of the future is somewhat different. You see, money doesn't exist in the 24th century.
Lily Sloane: No money? You mean, you don't get paid?
Captain Jean-Luc Picard: We work to better ourselves.
What's the point of presenting a computer virus with evidence? It's blind and will deny it all.
It only knows what little it has been programmed to know.
