(Section 17 of Part 3 – Why I Left the Church)
When we initially met with the HAS, one of the points she tried to make (in an effort to make a case against the former Int Management staff who claim that David Miscavige inflicts violence on staff and commits other atrocities) was that LRH appointed Miscavige as his successor, to lead the church.
I’d been in Scientology for 25 years, on staff for all but three months of that time. I’d read many many references. At no time had I ever seen a written reference that even claimed to be written by LRH, that ever even mentioned the name David Miscavige, much less one that appointed him as his successor in leadership. All this time I had assumed that this was the case, and the HAS was still assuming. I was reasonable when I thought that David Miscavige must have been the guy LRH had appointed to take his place.
I’ve already gone over COB’s stats. They’re horrible. The vital stats of Scientology orgs have gone unviably low, under his poor leadership, while he false reports to his staff and public to create the facade of great leadership thus, sending the signal that all should do whatever he says, because he knows best.
In any regular company or organization, with these stats, David Miscavige would be history — even if he was the sweetest, kindest gentlest person in the world. If he had integrity, he would step down.
Have you ever seen anything in writing, like a certificate, or even a verbal claim, that COB is trained at all? Or did you just assume that he was an OEC / FEBC and a trained data evaluator? I ask that because I had always assumed that. Otherwise how would he have gotten onto the highest post in all of Scientology? (The answer to that last question is available but it is not something that he would want you to know. I won’t go into it here, as this dissertation is long enough. But the information is available.)
COB is not trained. He hasn’t done his OECs; he is not a trained data evaluator.
He is not a certified auditor even though he does act as though he were a highly trained C/S (by inspecting tech and pc folders and inventing technical programs), enforcing his interpretation of what an F/N looks like on all concerned, and coming out with revisions of the tech.
There’s a pretty good chance that you’ve heard people tell their stories of having been audited by LRH. Have you ever heard anyone, ever, say anything about the results of auditing with David Miscavige as their auditor? Have you ever heard of him ever auditing anyone?
I have. I was told by a Class XII, formerly in the church, that he did the Academy Levels at Saint Hill when he was a teenager. She said he is still incomplete on his Class IV Internship. The data is that he physically assaulted one of his pc’s when he was on that internship.
You may not believe this. Yes, it’s very extreme. You may think that the person who claims this, the Class XII, is just lying because she is bitter. You may assume that she is really an SP who finally, after fooling the whole church into letting her be certified as a Class XII, was discovered by heroic measures and expelled from the church. Or whatever.
I believe her data because I’ve opened my eyes to the outnesses that are quite obvious once you actually decide it’s okay to look. The church is now the entity that I disbelieve when I hear conflicting data, when a former member claims an atrocity committed by David Miscavige and the church counters this claim in whatever way. In fact, I don’t believe a word that the church says these days. I got that point of view by the overwhelming evidence that I am presenting to you here in this story, that COB and his spokesmen lie incessantly. I will be explaining more about how I came to disbelieve what the church claims as I go on.
Furthermore, if COB was the standard, all-knowledgeable follower of LRH tech and policy, then I ask, why doesn’t he handle this situation (of people claiming that he is guilty of crimes), by using standard handlings per policy? If he is free of guilt why doesn’t he apply standard justice actions to make it clear to everyone that he is innocent and to show that everyone who is making these claims against him is just bitter, vengeful and delusional?
“Anyone can request a Comm Ev on himself for anything. An example would be an intern removed from course who does not believe he failed. He can request a Comm Ev. If he can prove he didn’t, he has to be restored.
“If one is being shot at or regarded with contempt through false accusations, his first action would be to ask the Ethics Officer or MAA for a third party investigation, and if that didn’t work, request a Comm Ev to clear his name or repute. Or to get himself rightfully shot for that matter.
“Example: Someone is being kicked around. He can’t handle it himself. So he requests a Comm Ev.
“This MUST be given him. And it must be SWIFT.” – LRH (HCO PL 24 Feb 72 I Injustice, OEC Vol 0, page 703)
So, again, if he is innocent (meaning, if all the people who say that he beats his staff, etc. are lying), then a Committee of Evidence (done fairly and for the greatest good), should reveal that. A man with nothing to hide should not only have no problem with that but should have already requested it himself.
If I saw honest records of a standardly done Comm Ev on COB which showed, beyond a doubt, that he was innocent (making sure that ALL the evidence was taken into account), then I wouldn’t think he was guilty. But in my opinion, the evidence of his guilt is added to by his unwillingness to use any kind of justice that would reveal the truth.
It’s just more evidence to me, on top of everything else, that David Miscavige is nothing more than a fraud.
