High pressure tactics
On August 14, an Executive Directive was sent to all OT Ambassadors, OT VIIIs and those on OT VII demanding them to attend mandatory IAS briefings.
The PACIFICA BASE ED 275 marks the new wave of high pressure tactics from the Church of Scientology. Not only are the IAS briefings mandatory, the OTs are demanded to raise their IAS status to the next level.
The Executive Directive commands the OTs to come to the West US Membership Office and see the Maiden Voyage IAS event (event video #4) in full – even if they have seen it before. Then it states as action point #2:
“2. Come to the WUS Membership Office to be interviewed in order to raise your status with the IAS. Contact the WUS Membership Office or come in right away. It is beyond urgent that you do this within the next 5 days.”
The third action point is to bring 3 other LA Scientologists into the IAS office to be interviewed.
The three point action plan was to be done before Thursday the 20th of August 2009.
I have spoken to Scientologists who have been commanded into heavy ethics actions in order to hand over their credit cards.
With the rate of desperation now in the CoS, it’s only a matter of time before cave-in.
