"Mark Chambers, the KTL supe at Stevens Creek, who started having bad health problems, ended up in a wheelchair, probably after a double amputation as his circulation was horrible from years of smoking and just bad health habits–perhaps diabetes. He kept on as a staff member, but the ED got him offloaded as the idea of a ‘cripple DB’ in the org on staff was completely out-PR to her. She was pretty brutal about that sort of thing and had made sarcastic comments about fixing the org’s elevator, because only downstats would need it–and that was not worth putting money into. He died after he was kicked off of staff. To make matters worse a few years prior to this, his wife really went off the deep end mentally. Many suicide watches and handlings with the DSA, and last I heard she was still in terrible shape. She also had been a staff member for years."
Yeah, because sympathy is low on the tone scale.
Really, if there is can be one single sentence that describes all that is wrong about scn, it is: "Lack of compassion".
Both Hubbard and especially Miscavige were paranoid. They always feel threatened, even in situations when they are 100% secure. The ironic fact is: Davey's sadism and paranoia is exactly what might cause people to start turning against him. It obviously caused Mike Rinder to turn against him.It seemed Scientology went nuts at this same time, when a bit of sanity and civility was about to finally usher in. This is the narcissistic rage at the top, when a control structure is threatened or about to come apart.
That's exactly one of the main reasons I left. These veterans, dedicated members with 20+ years of work for the cult behind their belt... and seeing the cult kick them out like a bag of trash after they become ill/old/had an accident.This hurt me, as my husband was on staff, and upon our separation, he quit staff and went to Miami Org to work out of his condition and pay his freeloader debt. His spinal cord was damaged during a robbery at his wog job there, and he was made a quad for 25 yrs. Of course, there was speculating about what he'd done to 'pull it in'. No one would dare risk a transfer of karma by their inuendos though.
The cult has no compassion, no loyalty, no gratitude, no dignity.
