That sounds like an interesting book, Larry. I don't think there is enough humility in the top TLWF leadership to look inward in the way you describe. When Gary says he is accepting responsibility, i.e. "drinking the cup", it usually comes out in a twisted manifestation. For example, he has been avoiding bringing the hard words and directions such as closing a major facility, and now he needs to step up.

BTW, I have been watching Leah Remini's Scientology, The Aftermath. The way that David Miscavige explained LRH's death sounded eerily similar to the narrative we were told about JRS' death. "He could have broken through into resurrection life, but he refused to receive the fulfillment alone without a company of people." And the corollary, "You all killed John by your (disobedience, indifference, rebellion)." Feel free to fill in the blank with one of the above, or invent your own. That is not true leadership.

So true, changedagain! Even when Mr. Big Cheese is feigning humility, he's looking around for something to beat people with. It turns people's lives inside out and upside down. But he just keeps on keeping on.

Yes
Jocko Willink would not be impressed by TLWF leadership :)

A sadistic streak, for sure. I suppose his cross to bear is to inform others they are going to the cross.

Reepicheep. You can bet that us posters on this forum were blamed for Marilyn’s death. They probably think we are a coven.

Rebellion is as witchcraft after all.

In spite of what John said, I still consider deceit, arrogance and greed to more contemptible human traits than sarcasm. Of course, I'm biased.

The founding fathers were a coven, I guess. Hadn't thought of it that way.

Puddington and Tknc, I was tempted to make a joke about this, but it is just so sad. Gary Hargrave is the one using psychic warfare against people who disagree with him. And he learned these tactics from John Robert Stevens. If they're looking for a coven, they should look at themselves!
