>Oh how people love to be victims!
If you've ever been robbed, you know this is horseshit. This is
Scientology thought, and very key in cult thought. It's an attitude
that justifies victimizing people, and if you're not a victimizer then
justifies not helping the victims.
There may be *some* kinds of victims that love being those kinds of
victims, but seriously, how many people really love to be victims of
humiliation? Do you?
How about victims of poverty. Do you really think that people are
really looking forward to being real victims of real poverty as soon
How about victims of murder? In Heaven they might be overjoyed that
someone shot them in the body so they could go off and love everything
forever or whatever. But, again seriously, as far as living people
loving the expectation of being a murder victim, I'll bet you'll find
that people, almost universally, don't.
I would imagine that fakes would, in some contorted way, love to be
fake victims, but fake victims are very different from actual victims.
I trust you will, if you're real, rethink what you've stated here.
>Once a person believes he is a victim he becomes passive and
This is not a rule or reality at all. Some people who have been
victimized might do as you say, and of course the victimizers love
their victims to become passive and unthinking.
But victims can have virtually any human response to their
Miscavige, everyone in his cabal, the cult as a set of corporations,
virtually every Scientology cultist that supports the cult, plus a
bunch of their nasty wog professionals, have victimized me ever since
I left the cult 27+ years ago.
Hubbard and his cabal victimized me for 12+ years before that.
I am a victim of the cult and Scientologists, Hubbard and Miscavige on
down. I am a victim of them temporally, jurisprudentially,
financially, socially, relationally and psychologically. If you
honestly believe that my believing I am victim made me become passive
and unthinking, your research is below suspect.
You can make your paradigm or postulates or delusions work, by
redefining the word victim. Doing that, you could strip the word from
all languages to make a victimless world. Rather than confront the
Here's an online definition:
1: a living being sacrificed to a deity or in the performance of a
religious rite2: one that is acted on and usu. adversely affected by a
force or agent <the schools are victims of the social system>: as a
(1): one that is injured, destroyed, or sacrificed under any of
various conditions <a victim of cancer> <a victim of the auto crash>
<a murder victim> (2): one that is subjected to oppression, hardship,
or mistreatment <a frequent victim of political attacks> b: one that
is tricked or duped <a con man's victim>
Your definition for victim isn't in English dictionaries, yet.
>The victim looks for an authority figure who will make
>everything OK again.
Goat shit. You might if you were victimized, because maybe that's your
experience. Or maybe you've never been victimized.
Let's say that Miscavige beats someone. The person's a victim and
Miscavige is the victimizer. Some of the authority figures that can
help DM's beating victim are law enforcement, attorneys and judges.
And in fact they should be looked for.
But very few victims actually believe that anyone can make everything
OK again. You've mocked up here a bunch of straw victims.
>The victim becomes a demanding child.
Sheep shit. Miscavige's underlings have physically assaulted me on
several occasions. I was the victim of those assaults. I am the
present victim of a massive Fair Game campaign that Miscavige's
underlings execute for him. Do you really think you can reduce the
world's victims to "demanding children" with a childish inanity?
Nice for you to be superior to the world's victims. Easy to dispense
with their demands -- like for safety, justice, fairness, honesty,
decency, facts, evidence, reason -- if the demanders are just
>Never underestimate the power of a victim mentality!
What is that? Is that a meme that uses your and Scientology's
definition of "victim," a definition missing from English
How about the rape paradigm? Do all rape victims have a victim
mentality? And what makes rape victims' mentalities so powerful people
need to be warned not to underestimate them.
>Most of the evil

Chicken shit. The evil is done by victimizers.
Sure, lots of victimizers view themselves as victims. That's the

That evidences the awful effect of victimizing people.

>want these wounds to heal?
What? Are you now equating victims with extremists? Fascinating,
because the cult also equates its victims with, or labels its victims,
And speaking of the cult, if you believe it doesn't victimize people
and produce victims, why bother "criticizing" it? So you can criticize

Well sure, because he was a sociopath. He was also a monstrous
victimizer, who had many victims. And not all of those victims were
>People love their victim status so much that they will follow leaders
>to their death rather than lose it.
You are so full of shit. You pull this out of your ass, and still
you're full of shit. Or you've embraced sociopaths' logic.
You seem to be claiming that you've never been a victim -- of a bully,
of a liar, of betrayal, of an illness, of an accident, of anything.
Now if I say you're a liar, or how about if I say you're nuts, or
worse if I say you're so juvenile I seriously doubt you'll get just
how juvenile you are, you wouldn't be the victim of ad hominem
argument would you?
>Scientology claims victim status by claiming that there is a religious
>war against it.
No, the cult doesn't call what its victims are doing in response to
its victimizing a "religious war." After all, the cultists call their
victims *anti-religious* extremists.
The cultists certainly call what they are waging on their victims a
And certainly the Scientologists, virtually universally portray
themselves falsely as victims. But so do sociopaths of every cult,
nation, color, creed, or gender universally.
This is not, however, a legitimate reason to redefine "victim" to
accommodate the victimizers and facilitate more victimizing.

Goose shit. You're blaming the victims for having a "victim identity"
plus blaming them for all the crimes against the world. And in your
"cycle," victimizers are missing.
Are you victimizing us with all this shit?

Redo your paradigm or "cycle" to begin with the cultists' FAKE VICTIM
IDENTITY and see if it works.
But your cycle for ACTUAL VICTIMS is a load, and I trust you'll
rethink this whole post.
Depending on how you react to being straightened out about your
misinformation I'll know whether you think I've victimized you. If so,
and you stick to your pronouncements about what victims will do, then
I'm to expect you'll start committing crimes against the world pretty
