    HellYeah!

    It's phenomenally remarkable that Scientology forces people to pay for the privilege of being slaves, marks and useful idiots.

    Freeloader Bill: Person joins staff expecting to go OT as part of the promised "exchange in abundance". As ink on contract is drying, BAIT & SWITCH begins. Staff paid less than poverty level wages, worked to death, beaten like a mule for "more production", fed crap, not allowed the DevT called sleep. Zombie state ensues. Zombie, out of sheer self-preservation leaves. Zombie is sent bill for tens of thousands of dollars or more for "freeloading"; when in fact they worked 100+ hours per week for pennies per hour. And the Zombie never even went OT. Yet the zombie is "out ethics". This is like sadistically beating a slave and then charging them $25,000 for a ride to the local emergency room.

    And there, obviously, are other major components of Scn that are identical to the freeloader scam, but they are called something else. Let's name just a few examples.......

    IAS DONATIONS

    SUPERPOWER DONATIONS

    IDEAL ORG DONATIONS

    WAY TO HAPPINESS IN LIBRARIES DONATIONS

    PLANETARY DISSEMINATION DONATIONS

    CREATING AND THEN BURYING 1.8 MILLION STAINLESS STEEL/PLATINUM DISCS and 187,000 NICKEL AUDIO RECORDS TO PRESERVE HUBBARD'S TECHNOLOGY.​


    They all have something in common with the Freeloader Debt scam:

    Each one of these meticulously crafted donation rackets charges the mark exorbitant sums ("donations") get on a Routing Form which defrauds them and then sends them off to write a glowing Success Story and get their photo taken of them grinning while holding an oversized "Humanitarian" certificate over their heads.

    Summary: Scientology scams unsuspecting individuals out of their money and then convinces them that it's a win. Ergo, standing ovations for Hubbard, Miscavige and others who steal their money, making Scientologists some of the most pathetically gullible people "on this planet". And yes, I was one of them. (gulp, cringe, wtf was I thinking?! lololol)

    You think that a person who gets paid fifty cents an hour, works seven days a week, get no vacation, lives in a dorm, eats rice and beans and buys their own uniform is a freeloader.

    Here is another way to look at it.

    If a Sea Org member gets paid $50. per week = $2600. per year
    If food costs $10. per day = $3650. per year
    Water, electricity, gas, sewer, medical, TP, misc. @ $5. per day = $1825. per year
    Total cost per Sea Org member per year $8075.

    Note: Pay may be closer to $20. - $30. per week and food could be closer to $3.00 per day and miscellaneous could be highly overstated but I would rather err on the high side for purposes of making my point.

    The US National Average Income per household in 2015 was $48,099.

    If you subtract the cost of a Sea Org member from average income = $40,024. net benefit to the Church in labor.

    $40,024. x 4300 Sea Org members = $172,103,200. annual net benefit in labor to the Church.

    Even if you cut that figure in half for sake of discussion it is still a disgusting figure.

    Auditors are a source of revenue. You do not divert auditing resources for staff. Staff receive admin training. Auditing also requires that staff receive proper food and sleep and have in-ruds (no immediate problems that would interfere with an auditing session). Meeting the criteria for making staff sessionable diverts resources from production.

    I’d also ad that historically the auditing of crew has a nasty tendency to result in an expanded RPF so crew and management end up having a tacit understanding that auditing isn’t really needed so much after all.

    Edit:

    The National cost for rent is a little under $1000. per month if we wanted to back this into the equation but the average income is based on a 40 hour work day and Sea Org members work closer to 80.

    Cool cost and "exchange" analysis defining the life of a Sea Org member. . . .

    Thank you Mimsey.
    "Album"... This is my French language that shows the tip of his nose... In french, a comic book is called an album.
    Anyway, I'm a little sad that there is no real comic book with the Freaks Brother in scientology!

    It's not so much that DM has increased the torture levels, as much as DM has more confidence that he can get away with personally abusing people. By the time the Sea Org started, LRH was a fat, out of shape, old man. He was too cowardly to personally slap anybody around (using his Messengers whenever he wanted to have somebody spat on), because he couldn't be sure whether his target would finally get fed up, grab him, and snap his neck. DM works out more.

    Right. And if seniors really believed that auditing would make their juniors more able to get higher stats, they would have told them "You have session tomorrow morning. Go home now and get some sleep."

    For a brief respite in their 80 hour week, OSA ESMB watchers got to claim points for reading The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers looking for the Scientology episode.

    ...your "post" in Scientology is to monitor the internet and gather information on critics, and

    you report your actual "stats" for this activity.

    you're afraid to ask SIRI, "Is Scientology a dangerous cult?"

    (Go ahead and try it...)

    Interestingly the only way they can be upstat is if Scientology is having flap after flap.

    It's a good thing that happens to be the case.

    Breaking News: A non-scientologist helped at the scene of a car accident!

    An 85 year old man who could barely walk saved the lives of two woman by pulling them out of a burning car!

    Great story here:
    http://www.fox4news.com/news/227910904-story

    Can someone in the media please contact Tom Cruise for his comment on this feat?

    And yes, he did say that a scientologist is the only one who could help in this situation. At 1:09 in the below video:
