That is so true about both being destructive.Mostly, it was from changing my social circle, from hanging out with pot-heads to hanging out with cultists who wanted to suck all my money and time out of me.
Both were destructive, long-term, but in different ways.
El Con wrote that psychiatrists have 1500 terms for a person dramatizing an evil purpose-destructive intention (insanity/psychosis), including dramatizing 'vengeance' and 'evil' (see reference below)..
I vote for both yours and Enthetan's assessment. Scientology's treatment of apostates, infidels and other departed DBs is both vengeful and evil.
Disobeying an infallible Scn guru's orders or "command intention" (by successfully escaping the cult) is viewed as a hostile high-crime and suppressive attack against Scientology.
“People attack Scientology, I never forget it, always even the score."
-L. Ron Hubbard
The sad, very sad point of the above is it is so dreadfully true, not just extremely amusing satire..
Re: Cult vengeance vs. departed SO and staff members
Cult gurus like Hubbard despise rejection. Hence vengeance enters into it. They want payback!
The payback stalking begins with literally----payback!
To wit---the Freeloaders Bill!
.Dear Blown Sea Org DB:During your 30 years of 100 hour work-weeks, our records reflect that we only paid you an average of 17 cents an hour! We are very concerned about taking responsibility for andhandling and correcting this very unfair out-exchange with you! Therefore, we need youto immediately repay us for all the training and auditing that you criminally stole from us. Although what we gave you was priceless, we are willing to settle (if you pay us this week)for only $174,000. We will even waive the 30 years of compound interest in order to exchange with you in abundance and express "no hard feelings!"Try to return to your senses! Ron gave you Total Freedom and how did you thank him? Byusing your freedom to sneak out at 2am when the power went down and the security guardscould not see the heat signature of your mest body as it climbed over the barbed-wire of the electrified security gate. It's really a 1.1 betrayal to leave during a power outage when all the high-beam surveillance lights/cameras were off and the tracking dogs were chained up. Naturally, after you pay your freeloader's bill, you'll need to do an ethics cycle to make up thedamage for sabotaging Ron's dream of clearing the planet. You'll need to buy quite a numberof intensives to run out your evil purposes. Enclosed is a selection slip that clearly showsin writing that I am your FSM and entitled to the entire 10% commission. ML,Billy BlowdownDirector of Blown DBs & SPs.

May I add they often leave in old age and ill health – generally cancer?.
Yeah, it's pretty pathetic if you think about it. A Sea Org member works for 30 years!
7 days a week, 16 hours a day. And they leave penniless, homeless & jobless. With very few marketable skills unless there is a boom market demand for people who can walk fast with a clipboard or face-rip fellow workers.
Then they natter that they only earned an average of 19 cents an hour. But that is a provable lie!
Because after they repay their "FREELOADERS BILL" that's over $100K----they actually did not earn 17 cents an hour at all! That's the lie. They, in fact, paid Scientology 17 cents an hour to be allowed the elite privilege of three decades of Sea Org slavery on this slave planet.
.May I add they often leave in old age and ill health – generally cancer? ...... Pre-OTs and OT VIIIs dropping like flies with cancer but those around them, who were usually Pre-OTs and OT VIIIs, too, carried on as if there was nothing wrong, in a completely non sequitur manner, even though those incidents totally contradicted with what the Suppressive Psychopathic-Delusional Bullshitter, El Con, said and wrote – repeatedly mind you. No obnosis or as-isness just not-isness.......
An El Con fund-a-mental "Always blame, never admit!"..
When something goes terribly wrong with a Scientologist, there's always a terribly Scient-illogical explanation for it that one cult member can easily provide a reassuring R-Factor to others about.
SITUATION: The senior C/S died of cancer, even though Hubbard states on audiotapedlectures that a few short touch assists is a miracle cure for cancer.R-FACTOR: Yes, but that happened because they did not follow Ron's policy on taking2.5 hours a day of "personal enhancement time" for auditing or training! They werealways in their office doing C/Sing which is an out-ethics situation on their 1st dynamic,so they never took time to handle their MEST body's cancer with a couple touch assists.
SITUATION: The #1 most upstat public power-Scientologist in the world-- who donated themost money and received every imaginable auditing action & and rundown delivered by a ClassXII auditor--just unexpectedly blew Scientology, wrote a tell-all book and sued the Church.R-FACTOR: Sure they donated 175 million dollars and LRH personally case supervised theirBridge from 1950 to 1985---up to full OT VII. Sure LRH personally audited them on a successfulpilot which was released in 1988 as OT VIII. But after they blew a folder error study revealed thatthey were a druggie revert* with a totally unhandled drug case, and per LRH tech, people ondrugs do not get the actual miraculous gains from OT levels because beings on drugs cannotas-is. It was so bad they were actually snorting drugs! Therefore, they ran the "Wall Of Fire"and "NOTS" and stirred up all that heavy charge but didn't erase it---which is why they gotoverwhelmed and over-restimulated and went Type III and blew.
* druggie revert: After attesting OT IV (the "OT Drug Rundown") and totally handling their drug case,
they nevertheless went back on drugs and their home medicine cabinet was found to be loaded with
drug snorting paraphernalia like inhalers and other related asthma medication.
it's also a statics, or stat. If a person leaves, he/she can no longer produce a stat. ie, letters sent out, members involved, WDAH (well done auditing hours), etc.Like a slave who runs away.
the rhetoric is actually positioning tech, that is position scientology as a religion and persuade one scientology is a religion.
.An El Con fund-a-mental "Always blame, never admit!".
In 1947, El Con pleading with psychiatrists to stop him, that is, fund-a-mental, and because they didn’t he was upset and enacted revenge by nattering about them to his minions until he drew his last breath on Earth/Teegeeack on 24 January 1986 ........
Prior to El Con commencing his con he was playing with Jack Parsons' rocket, living in a trailer, that is, as trailer park trash. Around 39 years later he died in a trailer in hiding (-0.8 on El Con's Emotional Tone Scale) from the law, alone, in the dark and in pain as trailer park trash. I would call the latter a step backward..
The entire reason Scientology was created in the first place was to fund-a-mental.
We fondly recall Hubbard's paranoid and deranged rants in his letters to the FBI---commie spies were everywhere, even inside his own house (his wife)! His letters to the FBI didn't get him what he wanted but Scientology did famously succeed in it's goal to fund-a-mental.

.Wonderful stuff. You have a rare and terrific knack for writing tech.
If you ever decide to give up your day job, there's a post waiting for you
at Gold Base as Senior CS International. I think you have the "right stuff."
Just imagine, you could have your own set of these one day, memorializing
your tech expertise.
