Action Series 4: Independence of RTC (Trustees)

As children, most of us remember seeing and having the bejesus scared out of us by the movie, The Wizard of Oz. Poor cute little ole Dorothy, lost in a strange world of good and evil, who accidentally became the target of the purely evil, wicked Witch of the West.

Only one person could save her: the all-powerful Wizard of Oz.

It must be true – and worth the dangerous trek to see him. Everyone in the fantasy land of Oz agreed. The Wizard could – and would – save her!

Except, as it turned out…

The Wizard’s power was all an illusion.

Behind the CurtainBehind the curtain was a little man, caught red-handed manipulating the mirage.

Alone and exposed, he was meek and quivering, a mere shell of the powerful persona he had created and sold to the entire populace.

As Scientologists let’s not disappoint LRH and make the same mistake made by the residents of Oz and fall for PR and propaganda, or accept “the way things are.”

“Organizations do not bleed, they do not breathe; they do behave oddly enough like a single organism… But when the individuals in it cease to behave as individuals, cease to have their own thoughts, cease to be capable of their own initiative, cease to be able to take their own action, then the whole organization boils down to just one man, and he’s the only one who could make a decision … the only one who could act[but an organization] is composed of individuals who observe and who look … The only thing I am trying to teach you is to look.”[1]

RTC was not intended to be the all-powerful entity it has evolved into, with a singular, “Chairman of the Board,” pope-like ruler over the entirety of Scientology.

The authority of David Miscavige is all an illusion. LRH intended one-man rule to end upon his death, to be replaced by multiple cross checks and balances in three separate corporations ruled by seven boards of trustees and directors. Continue reading

Action Series 3: Recapture CSI’s Ecclesiastical Authority

Niccolo Machiavelli is most famous for writing the classic 16th Century book, The Prince. In it, Machiavelli criticized the conventional wisdom of his time: that rulers, to succeed, must acquire their power legitimately and rule with virtue.

Machiavelli portraitMachiavelli argued instead that nothing matters but the acquisition and maintenance of power however acquired and maintained. Forget legitimacy. Forget morality. They matter not.[1]

Here are a few of the rules of power he advanced:

“A wise ruler ought never to keep faith when by doing so it would be against his interests.”

“One who deceives will always find those who allow themselves to be deceived.”

“A prince never lacks legitimate reasons to break his promise.”

So influential was his work, his name became part of our language. Machiavellian means: “Cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous, esp. in politics or in advancing one’s career.”[2]

A trained Scientologist will recognize that Machiavelli has tapped into the baser instincts of Man, those found in the “reactive mind” (i.e., the part of the mind that acts on a stimulus-response basis beyond a person’s awareness, not reason).

LRH must have had this in mind when he split the power and authority over Scientology into 3 separate corporate entities so that the Church would last “millions of years.”[3]

In less than 25 years after LRH’s death, however, evidence abounds that David Miscavige, from his self-created position of Chairman of the Board of RTC, is running all of Scientology, including ecclesiastical matters, a function LRH reserved exclusively for Church of Scientology International (CSI), the “Mother Church.” Continue reading

Action Series 2: CSI Independence

LRH intended one-man rule of Scientology to end and a system of checks and balances to be implemented upon his death. Under his plan, the Church of Scientology International (CSI) is the “Mother Church,” responsible overseeing all ecclesiastical matters, including enforcement of the Justice Codes of Scientology, among other ecclesiastical matters.

Per LRH policy, for example, the Executive Director International (ED Int) is the convening authority (i.e., ecclesiastical prosecutor of Scientology Justice Codes) for worldwide matters.[1]

David Miscavige, however, rules Scientology absolutely (contrary to LRH intent).

From his position as head of RTC, he dispenses Scientology justice, and is not subject to it. In essence, Miscavige asserts that he can do no wrong and that any attempt to reform his policies and practices or restrict his powers constitutes a suppressive act.

Divine Right of Kings

England's King Charles I

Students of history will recognize in Miscavige’s position The Divine Right of Kings, a doctrine rooted in the medieval idea that God had bestowed earthly power to the king, just as He had given spiritual power and authority to the church, centering on the Pope.

The theory of Divine Right was abandoned in England during the Glorious Revolution of 1688–89. The American and French revolutions of the late eighteenth century further weakened the theory’s appeal, and by the early twentieth century, it had been virtually abandoned.[2]

Miscavige has usurped the ecclesiastical power LRH intended for the Mother Church (CSI). It is up to Scientologists to backup LRH with our own Glorious Revolution, insisting on strict compliance to LRH’s intention for the governance of our Church. Continue reading
