In his post today at the Underground Bunker today, Tony Ortega posted a chilling audio clip of Jonestown leader Jim Jones talking about Scientology and Paulette Cooper. I repost the audio below. Please see the Underground Bunker for the article and comments.
The question “Could there be a Jonestown mass suicide inside the Church of Scientology?” has been asked repeatedly over the years. Some former members have said yes, some have said no, and some have said it could only happen at the International Base.
The Scientology Cult blog explored this question in 2010; the article is well worth reading.
My answer is congruent with the theme of the Scientology Money Project and is posted below the YT video.
There has already been a financial Jonestown in the Church of Scientology. News of the devastating financial mass suicide has largely been covered up by OSA’s use of threats, binding contracts, and disconnection against the victims.
The perpetrators and beneficiaries of the financial mass suicide are Scientology FSM’s, registrars, outside lawyers and PI’s, and anyone else who receives commissions or paychecks for their help in enabling the financial rape and slaughter and shuddering the victims into silence.
The Kool Aid used to effect the financial mass suicide is a sweet and lethal mixture of propaganda, lies, false promises of power and salvation, threats, gang bang regging, and a sense of false urgency that Scientology is under threat of immediate danger or destruction at the hands of the Psychs and various outside forces.
The tyrant and architect of the mass financial suicide is the true Scientology Cult leader whose name is Stats and whose scorched earth greed for money is insatiable.
Sacrifices must be made to the Scientology false idol named Stats every Thursday at 2:00 PM. Acceptable sacrifices are money, labor, and slavery, particularly young people sacrificed to the Sea Org.
Scientology’s human leaders live and die but Stats — a wily, calculating, and devastatingly efficient financial predator — will never die so long as he maintains his camouflage as a religion and is protected by IRS tax exemption.
The financial Jonestown mass suicide in Scientology is a propaganda-based slaughter that uses coercive and manipulative psycho-mechanics against its victims. The victims are led to believe they will obtain breathtaking results in this life and reincarnate into a better future life if they are willing to commit financial suicide right now by giving every last penny to the Church of Scientology, the IAS, and other greedy entities. This financial suicide is irreversible as the victims sign malicious contracts ensuring that all monies are nonrefundable and agreeing to never sue the Church.
The Church of Scientology induces its members to commit financial suicide even as it withholds from them the fact that it has billions of dollars in cash and hard assets, is not broke, and is not in any sort of imminent financial danger.
Stats is now using the IAS to systematically mop up the few remaining financially solvent status-seeking survivors by use of trophies and other pseudo-insouciant flatteries.
