    People who go nuts after having been declared a Suppressive Person

    US is better to work in if you already have a stable situation to begin with. But if you wanna start from scratch, Europe is better. Poland has far cheaper college and the % of university seats that are up for a state scholarship is significantly higher than in America. About 40% of students...

    Mum gives up guardianship of daughter, 13, after she signed billion-year contract

    Similar scenario to what happened to me and my sis: Male head of the family dies suddenly, the distressed mother embraces scientology stronger than ever, joins staff, gets sent to an org far away, kids end up in a scientology ran facility and later join the SO.

    People who go nuts after having been declared a Suppressive Person

    I think that's one of the key differences between 1st and 2nd gens. My challenge was that I did not have the necessary education to get a decent job and that I had just one single relative that would let me crash on their couch (and they wanted me to move out as soon as possible). Both big...

    I did have, but the psychologist had mostly experience with former moonies and former jehova's witnesses. Her knowledge of how scientology operates was limited and I felt like she learned more from me than vice versa. ] In the end, it did not feel like I was getting anything out of it and I...

    People who go nuts after having been declared a Suppressive Person

    I'd say the broad scientific consensus within psychology is that Freudian psychoanalysis is outdated and that it evolved into much more complex and accurate forms of therapy later on: CBT, gestalt, modern psychodynamic models etc. Classic freudian psychoanalysis is mostly taught as "history of...

    "A BILLION YEARS" by Mike Rinder

    Well, I have my copy in digital format, because the paper version with the overseas shipping, import fees and whatnot was a bit too much of a hassle. I will post here once I'm done reading it with a sort of mini-review maybe. If people in the 2000s would have told me: "Hey, you will one day...

    In Los Angeles, shilling for Scientology becomes issue in mayor’s race

    There's a few more local politicians that took part in scn events in the early 2000s. I have a long memory. They should be glad I no longer vote in local elections.

    Freudian psychoanalysis is considered outdated now. That does not mean it is entirely ineffective or wrong, it just means we evolved further from it and developed more modern, more accurate methods. ("Better" is the enemy of "good"). Though despite it being "outdated", psychoanalysis still has...

    Red alert for the OT committee in Clearwater

    Yep. That's Ft Myers: Naples had this horrible storm surge where the winds pushed the sea way up the streets and flooded everything with salt water. :( From the way the map looked, I imagine North Port and Englewood were hit very, very hard by the winds. Because of the way the hurricane...

    Parts of Tampa have lost power, so likely parts of CW might be out as well.

    Red alert for the OT committee in Clearwater

    The good thing is that Sarasota seems to have dodged the bullet and the main eye band withe 150 mph winds missed it. From what they are saying, they might be experiencing 90 mph gusts or so.

    Red alert for the OT committee in Clearwater

    Oh sorry for misspelling it as Caya Costa. I just heard them pronounce it, not the name as written. I'm not super familiar with FL other than the Tampa bay area.

    They just showed some footage from St.Pete... and really doesn't look bad at all over there.

    Red alert for the OT committee in Clearwater

    Great to hear you are fine. I keep watching footage from North Port and Naples and it looks really bad. I'm having flashbacks from that hurricane on kauai three decades ago.
