(Section 10 of Part 2 – Determining the Validity of Internet Data)
As I said, the HAS instantly “knew” that there was nothing corrupt about COB or church management because of all the gains she has gotten in Scientology. This is what she told me. She said that it was not possible for a corrupt organization with a corrupt leader to deliver such gains as she had. And she maintained that even after reading “Friends of LRH”.
In my opinion, the gains that people have gotten in Scientology are the only things that hold the support of church members. Yes, there are people in the church who still apply the tech at least well enough to obtain gains. The gains can be pretty spectacular.
But that doesn’t mean that everything is good. It doesn’t mean there aren’t abuses, it doesn’t mean that out-tech isn’t rampant, it doesn’t mean that tech quality hasn’t gotten much worse since she had those gains, it doesn’t mean that the stats aren’t being falsely reported, it doesn’t mean that the church’s programs aren’t off-policy and it doesn’t mean that the church isn’t in a major decline and being destroyed due to its over-emphasis on money and lack of emphasis on helping individuals.
The determining factor of whether someone sees the real truth of what’s going on is whether they actually look at all the evidence for themselves, not whether they reason to themselves that the fact that they have gotten gains from Scientology tells them the whole story of the overall scene.
In my opinion, an opinion that I came up with after much personal investigation, is that COB exploits the gains that people have gotten from Scientology to gain their support for his corrupt actions. He falsely allies himself with the tech and deceives his supporters into thinking that he is the epitome of standard tech and standard admin.
I think that the HAS, at the very least, had the responsibility to investigate further into how it could happen that two dedicated staff could be convinced that the management of the church was corrupt. Even if she didn’t think it was corrupt, it was a serious outpoint that two staff were coming to her making such originations. Something had to be wrong one way or the other, even if the only thing that was wrong was that conditions existed where these two staff could be convinced that it was corrupt.
It was her duty as the HAS to look and investigate and get to the bottom of this. Instead, what she did was assume. She told me what she assumed (though she did not use the word “assume”, I am putting that word there myself because it is my observation that she was assuming). She assumed that this was happening because some outside enemy of Scientology was effectively deceiving people into driving them away from Scientology. In my opinion she also assumed that the management of the church was working on it and they needed more help and support to get them to find and handle this enemy. She totally assumed that the enemy she was referring to could not be someone who was running the church so she refused to look at that as a possibility.
