Won’t Mrs. Mouse just keep giving?

Thanks to the person who forwarded the letter :)

We in Global Capitalism HQ note that if David Miscavige heard that Doug Dohring was sick, he may have put the full court press on to get Scientology named as a major beneficiary. In other words, Mr. Dohring's premature demise may merely have changed Scientology's strategy for helping themselves to as much of Doug's wealth as possible from regular annual contributions to a single lump sum.

The art of capturing and holding on to big donors is going to fail as Scientology is exposed more and more. Rich materialists recognize when an organization is starting to collapse.

Even the brainwashed wealthy entrepreneurs will not be able to ignore the empty orgs, lack of packed events and avalanches of bad press.

The rats might not jump ship till their feet are wet but I think that will wake them up from their koolaid stupor.

The Masterson trial is the iceberg that’s going to sink the unsinkable Scietanic.

Another lost donor. It seems like it should be something to celebrate, but it’s just so sad that scientology pushes people beyond their limits and in the end they break.

I realize their quote “When you heard from Doug last week, he was still in the fight. He and his family and doctors threw everything into it these past four months, but it was an uphill battle. In very Doug fashion, a few days ago he elected to stop treatment, and as he put it, “move on to his next adventure.” As always, doing everything on his terms.” was meant to console and uplift but it is just sad.

Probably the hardest part about this is that scientology will do as scientology did when Jett Travolta died and swarm in to ensure that the large donor family does not have time to properly grieve but buries their grief in pseudo treatments that only act as a ticking time bomb in their brain.

My sincere condolences to his friends and family. I hope they are allowed the time and space they need to process the passing of this loved one from their lives.

"He and his family and doctors threw everything into it these past four months, but it was an uphill battle." -- I am curious if this is another case of finding out too late what's wrong OR finding out too late because we tried to get better the Scientology way first?

Doug and his wife had two sets of identical twins, two boys and two girls as well as Jason their eldest. I believe both sets of twins joined the Sea Org.

I think Dohring was 65 or 66. Is that correct?

How many people "bewitched" by lies.

"Y una tercera parte de las huestes angelicales fueron seducidas y engañadas". Por supuesto que la educación es importante. Una buena base en la familia, el paso por el colegio, etc. y poder recuperar aspectos de la buena filosofía, por ejemplo, que les hace pensar y luego elegir bien, y rápidamente se dan cuenta, por ejemplo, de que la palabra Scientology es un absurdo redundancia, cuyas excusas en su defensa chocan con el sentido común.
