All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

"I started thinking, and I got carried away"
Except it wasn't. In my recalcitrant frame of mind, I was no longer glossing over or explaining away all the inconsistencies, self-contradictions, and outright horseshit in the material I was listening to. Where I could accept it, I did, but some things were just too outrageous, even for me. Those things are not the things that make most people go, "Huh???" at Scientology, or fall into fits of hysterical laughter. I had no problem swallowing whole track, space opera, clams and sloths and photon converters, oh my!, all that. What stuck in my throat were the logical and factual impossibilities concerning the immediate world: How he'd seen it mathematically "proven" that the brain could only hold 3 months' worth of memories (math, my ass: Hubbard couldn't even add water) [...]
Although nothing came of that "investigation," the fact remains that the "Church" of Scientology had a covert operative employed in a law firm against which the Church was litigating. This operative undoubtedly had access to attorney-client-privileged information. This is also somewhere around the time COS used Interpol to get David Mayo's home surrounded by police and searched, and himself taken at machine-gun point to a disgustingly unsanitary Dominican Republic jail, where he was held without food or water before being interrogated and eventually released.
So I got tired of moping and headed back to the condo. The execs and OSA guys were there; I don't remember which ones but probably most of the ones who normally worked or attended conferences there. Nobody was saying much; it looked like everybody else hadn't finished moping yet. So I took a hint and resumed moping. Every once in a while somebody would wonder what the hell we were going to do, or what went wrong, and speculate about how bad it was going to be. After a while, the CO OSA Int, Mike Sutter, spoke up. He said (paraphrasing), "I don't care if she thinks she won. That bitch is never going to see one single cent. I'll kill her first. I don't care if I get the chair — it's worth it. It's just one lifetime."
One of the remarkable characteristics of a Church of Scientology apparatchik is the compulsion to lie even when no lie is necessary, when the unembellished truth would have been adequate to the purpose. Compulsive lying is a trait ordinarily associated with a certain mental instability, but these are people who, outside office hours, would seem pretty normal. I knew Alex; he knew me. Even accounting for the possibility that some of the lies were fed to him by others, he knows that at least some of what he wrote here is false.
My point here is that in this radio show I first heard about your million-dollar challenge. I was already starting to think, but it got me thinking just that little bit more: How come some Scientologist doesn't claim this prize? After all, we are the ones who really can do these things. There are prohibitions against showing off in public " don't frighten the natives, you know " but that came from back when New Age wasn't cool. In today's world, Scientology is actively promoting their wares to New Age adherents of all stripes " what a surprise! " and a demonstrated proof of mystical powers would give us a great big whomping mojo and get tons of people and money pouring in. Even if no official Scientology church would allow it, there's a tremendous body of people who've left the church but still believe in the tech
And so, in a shining example of Scientology justice, the WISE EO is assigned to the RPF.
I do hope this information gets to as many WISE members and ex-members and other Scientologist businesspersons as possible. This is how WISE is looking out for your interests and protecting you from being taken advantage of.
