All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

Scientology's often repeated claim of "eight million" members is a complete fabrication.
Excerpt from Sea Organization Executive Directive Number 68 for the United States:
In 1983 I held the position of Address Officer/Computer I/C ASHO Day. At that time — 8 years after the date of the above SO ED — ASHO's CF (central files) consisted of a total of 250,000 names.
Here's the breakdown of the list:
180,000 had either bought a book or had only done an introductory or "basic course"
25,000 individuals were either "ad unk" (address unknown) or had been "dead filed" (were on the list but were not sent any mailings)
45,000 had completed a "major service" (training and/or auditing)
