Breaking the cult mentality of Marty's new cult With the last few posts by Marty it has now become clear to me, that he is creating a new cult. I think that it is impossible to change Marty’s opinions and that it is futile and a waste of time trying to do this. What i consider to be more important is to allow all the other “independents” and especially those Scientologists who are now leaving the cult access to the full information and to encourage them to engage in open discussion about Scientology and its history and let them see other viewpoints on the matter than just Marty's simple minded "DM is the 'why'" black and white propaganda. We must prevent the situation that those who now leave the cult fall into the next trap with Marty’s cult, who discourages them from waking up to the full truth about Scientology.Only the complete picture and full transparency will set them free. It seems to me that many of them are afraid to look for themselves, what other positions and documented facts there are about Scientology and that they somehow only cling to Marty’s blog and don’t go onto other sites to look at the information provided there. Marty himself discourages them to go to other forums such as WWP , ESMB and OCMB, by calling these boards “natter boards” and degrades the people, who post there to “victims” and “haters”. Marty claims in his newest posting that he doesn’t want to be a leader and yet he acts as a leader, because his blog is the main communication hub for the indies, where he has the full control over the communication and can determine the topic of discussion by his initial posting. If Marty didn't actually want to be a leader he would encourage open discussion on a real forum, instead of his own blog. What i propose is to promote other sites and forums to the indies, such as Geir Isene’s scientology forum The Scientology Forum: Welcome to the forum , where the communication is not controlled by Marty. Jeff Hawkins blog Leaving Scientology is also a good one, but it is not a forum. Geir’s forum is still “save” for newly out Scientologists, because confidential material that newly out Scientologists maybe are afraid to be exposed at, is censored. Other then that no communication, except for personal insults, is censored and critical discussion of Scientology is encouraged. That can be a first step to fully waking up. Marty's blog does not really help anyone, because it keeps people trapped in their cult mentality and implants the false idea in them that the DM is the only reason for Scientology being a cult. People need to understand that Marty is not special. Marty is not the new “saviour”. Marty doesn’t have the answers and in fact he is not needed to bring down the cult and free the slaves. There are many many whistleblowers, who had much more courage than him and already spoke out 20 years ago and earlier about the same kind of abuses that he now speaks out, although he doesn’t even reveal the full truth, but merely reiterates criticisms of DM that others such as Marc Headly, Jesse Prince, Larry Brennan have said years before him. Here is a list of over 1000 ex-CoS-members who have spoken out before him: Former Church of Scientology members who have spoken out - Why We Protest Wiki We somehow have to get them away from using only his blog as a communication medium and encourage them to seek open communication channels, where they also have to confront the opinions of "wogs". Marty’s blog encourages group-think, closed-mindedness and delusional elitist thinking, which excludes the “wog world” and now with his new posting demonizes even Scientologists, who are still in and supportive of the IAS. It is exactly this kind of mentality that is the breeding ground of a cult. Only with transparency and uncensored communication can we break this cult mentality. Just attacking Marty won’t do it. It will only reinforce them in their group think. We must promote open communication instead and ignore Marty.
