On Ex-Members


 

"Like everyone else, I, too, have ended up a victim of one thing and another, and at one time or another. Undoubtedly I'll become a victim of someone or of events again. In such circumstance, what I've become very interested in very quickly is how to unbecome a victim very fast.

But a more pertinent observation I'd like to make here is that I've never also considered that I would need make someone else a victim to accomplish this."

I've been reading lately the accounts of a number of Scientologists who've left staffs over the years, and whose departures turned out to be quite dramatic apparently. As in my own experience above, I've no interest in justifying (making excuses for) the inadequacies of organisational personnel, then or now. I take the same view where I might otherwise justify (make excuses for) any trauma experienced by departing staff.

I'll go out of my way to understand people, including those who've allowed themselves, and perhaps more actively contributed as well, to becoming victims. If I'm asked by these for help -- and sometimes even if I'm not asked -- I'll do what I can. I've just not had a lot of time to justify (find excuses for) them.

This is Planet Earth, and even the dimmest amongst us knows that shit happens.

Conditions in groups are whatever they may be. One needn't be a Scientology staff member to know something about this, as we are all members of any number of groups

Like everyone else, I, too, have ended up a victim of one thing and another, and at one time or another. Undoubtedly I'll become a victim of someone or of events again. In such circumstance, what I've become very interested in very quickly is how to unbecome a victim very fast.

But a more pertinent observation I'd like to make here is that I've never also considered that I would need make someone else a victim to accomplish this.

Instead I've considered this kind of thinking to be rather sickeningly weak and entirely inexcusable. And when I've witnessed it in action, I've found the consequences to be at the same time nasty and pathetic.

Attempting to make oneself right and another wrong; attempting to dominate another and avoid being dominated in turn; attempting somehow to further one's own survival at the expense of another's -- these are also attempts to make someone else a victim in order to resolve having become a victim oneself.

Anyone but a fool can see that this kind of thing doesn't work. Unfortunately we all play the fool now and then, do we not?

[...]

Yes, yes, I'm prepared to grant you however much more drama there may have been connected to your own circumstances -- and due to whomever's inadequacies. As explained above: been to the sites; read the many, fascinating accounts; just couldn't find these people's T-shirts -- they were all trying to sell someone else's.
