In order to "uncelebrate" the 100th anniversary (no "birthday", as he is extremely dead) of the fake guru Hubbard I am intending to write a book to debunk Scientology from a very new viewpoint. I think the world need to know what I have to say. Too many people have been scammed by Scientology, and the fraud continues. Anonymous has weakened the cult and that is "epic win", but more needs to be done. I am just going to leave this here. ********* Details: I had direct experience of being a Scientologist from 1973 to 1997. I went from "raw public" to OT8 and spent about half a million dollars to do it. I knew Hubbard's children and the top trained Scientologists and was a very top Scientologist "public" person. I was a staff member for almost 3 years, and a "Scientology celebrity" (with the same handlers and connections as all the other celebs in the cult) for over 15 years. I had close and frequent association and friendships with top Scientology executives, mostly in Clearwater as an OT7 and OT8. After a very costly and difficult six year internal fight against injustice I got from Scientology management from 1991 to 1997 I left Scientology and filed a major lawsuit against DM and all the relevant Scientology corporations. I knew I was putting myself at high risk but I decided to go ahead anyhow. Rather than lose the case in Court (as they surely would have) the Scientology cult litigation mob chose to abuse the Justice System, engage in illegal actions they could "get away with", as well as over-litigating to bankrupt both me and my attorney, Graham Berry. Due to being bankrupted I was forced to drop the case. The experiences I had in Scientology were unique, and insights I gained about the workings of this insidious cult have not yet been published, especially in a book. I have been "healing" from this bad experience since 1997, and part of that was to make notes of the insights I had about the cult and how it manipulates people. Those (large amount of) notes will be the book contents. Those insightful notes are fully ready to be written up. A main viewpoint of this book will be why Hubbard technology is a trap for innocent people, and how it does that. It will also contain examples of why the "tech" does not work in fact. ******** Here's why I post this here (and please feel free to cross post this in full to other sites). I can write the book but I need time to do it, and funds to make that time available. I work 3 jobs to make ends meet but have no extra money to make the time to write such a book as this. I am asking for help with this aspect of getting the book done. People can help by donating, or abstain from helping, as they wish. I have never asked for anything on here before for my own interests, and that is not the aim here. I think this is of general interest and importance so is a wider social matter than just "all about me". I don't feel any need or desire to do anything all about me anyways. I am asking for donations, but if folks want something for their cash in return I am willing to send art reproductions of my artworks (www.mpattinson.smugmug.com) in appropriate measure to give good value. The help I get will be very appreciated, and I respect anonymity of Anons totally (as I have since 2008). I will create the book with the resources I may receive, so if I get big help = big book, small help = small book. LOL Time is money. It will be nice to get this info out. I can self publish this if no other publisher gets interested, so it will get done. I am sure we will come up with a great title. ********* Logistics; PM; here on WWP as ExOT8Michael My email : firstname.lastname@example.org ...which is my PayPal email account, so you can donate there if you want to.
