The case of the Scientology cult: In “Inside WikiLeaks”

In “inside WikiLeaks” Daniel Domscheit-Berg explains how they started to receive documents and video on the Scientology cult.

“After the leaks on the Julius Bar Swiss Bank, we started receiving leaks from “Anonymous” on our chat sessions. The “Anonymous” were recognized by their Guy Fawkes’ masks on You Tube. Guy Fawkes is the guy who attempted to detonate the English parliament in 1605.

The “Anonymous” said:

You might get the impression that we are trying to scare you off, but this is not the case. The Scientology Church trail and harass members protesting their activities.  We are simply protecting ourselves from intimidation tactics that we witnessed other members being submitted to.  The Scientology Church is very rich and employ an array of lawyers to pursuing aberrant legal cases.”

The “Anonymous” sign their message: “Knowledge is free.  We are Legion. We do not forgive.  We do not forget. Expect us!”

The frustrated and scared initiates of the Scientology Church grabbed the opportunity to leak their information through WikiLeaks because they believed to be secure from legal prosecutions.  Tapes, video, and documents on this cult steamed to WikiLeaks.

We first published the internal manual of the sect, a manual only members who acceded to level 3 can purchase, after mortgaging their homes and are reduced to slave for this Church for pocket money.

The member ascends the echelons in a carrier kind manner in order to reach the level “Clear” in the Thetan level hierarchy.  Who are these Thetans?

They are curious creatures who suffered from overpopulation and revolted when our universe was composed of 76 planets. An intergalactic warrior Xenu traveled among the planets and rounded up all the Thetans and dumped them in a volcano in Hawaii and bombed them.  According to the Scientology Church, the spirit of a few dead Thetans hover around earth, looking out for primitive human bodies to enter”

If you are having any problem, rest assured:  One of the Thetan managed to dwell in you!  That is the doctrine of this highly scientific cult. Can you believe many members mortgaged their home in order to buy this “rare” and highly secret and sacred story book?

Whoever fails to progress quick enough in the cult levels must be rehabilitated.

The member is dispatched to the “Rehabilitation Project Force” (RPF) for reeducation or “introspection process”. This cult also own it fleet of specialized boats , called “Sea Org” for rehabilitation purposes.

The rehabilitated member has to undergo humiliating and debilitating series of punishing activities. This non-accomplished member has to sleep in an integral rubber suit and isolated from the remaining crew; he has to eat the leftover of the crew after they have eaten; he has to be constantly running and refused normal pacing; he has to empty the shit pot…before he is permitted to resume his “spiritual’ progression.

The death of 36 year-old Lisa McPherson in 1995, resulting from rehabilitation procedures, forced the cult to facing the legal system. The investigation ended in 2000 for lack of proofs! But the parents of Lisa settled out of court for an undisclosed sum in 2004.

Wikileaks also published lists of businesses and organization dealing with the cult. The founder L. Ron Hubbard pretended in his conferences in the 1950’s of being several million years old and had traveled the universe as an observer.

On a personal level.

In the late 80’s, I was a graduate student and pretty curious of whatever was going on around me.  I might have read a posted ad. on sessions for interpreting dreams.  In the beginning the sessions were free of charge and then we were asked to contribute and later we were to pay $10.  The small booklets on the subject of dreams cost also $10.

In these sessions, the focus was on the appropriate techniques for concentrating, like closing our eyes and imagine a sea, a blue sky, a green field…with someone talking on how to enhance our imagination, relaxing…

At times, we were to listen to tapes with background sounds related to what we are focusing on.  We were asked to light a candle at home and look at the flame and do not waver our mind outside focusing on the candle light… I realized that I am not susceptible to these kinds of hypnosis…

One day, an older lady visited the group of about 15 persons and tried to predict our physical well-being, such as the types of diseases that we are prone to and should be aware of…The lady would close her eyes and claim that she is receiving information from somewhere.  If we wanted a copy of the taped “visions” we had to cough up $10.

This curious exercises was becoming pretty expensive for a student and I desisted.  I recall that the name of Hubbard was mentioned as the founder of this school of Scientology…My hypothesis is that all cults select their members from among the susceptible people, ready to relax their control and letting be led my the “voices”.

In this university town, all kinds of religious sects Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, Unitarian…had their churches close to the university. I visited most of them, at least once, on Sundays.

The common denominator among the sects was investing on chorals for their Sunday ceremonies.  The rich sects built sophisticated organ system, those long many pipes of different lengths.

They were mostly conservative and there was no way to discriminate them on their theological differences.  Jesus was mentioned frequently but never the Virgin Mary as in the Catholic Churches, especially in Latin American countries.

The Presbyterian sect served communion.  Eventually, the university reserved a particular room for the Moslem students to pray.

I once attended church at a negro Baptist church in San Francisco:  There was plenty of clapping, dancing, singing but the preach was unavoidably about Moses crossing the desert with his followers.  This Moses story was very common during the slavery period.

I guess the Scientology cult had no such public facilities to exhibit their wealth and popularity.  When I think that Tom Cruise and John Travolta are still staunch high level members in the Scientology cult is pretty unsettling.
