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.

THE RPF PROGRAM — A SUCCESS OR A FAILURE?
Due to Scientology's need for statistics, here's the next newsletter in the series. We have recently posted the sad and heart-breaking stories of some recent RPF members. These stories are being posted serially as RPF Newsletter #9 and will eventually include everyone on the original list from newsletter #1. Names with an * by them on the list below are stories that have already been told. In other words — there are many more stories to come!
To those concerned about privacy issues for current or ex Scientology members, we are not sure what your objective is. Are you suggesting that the fact that someone was involved with Scientology is enough to ruin their lives once they get out? Are you forgetting that many of these people have spent most if not all of their lives in the "elite" Sea Organization, truly believing that they were "saving the planet", and that all of our sacrifices (i.e.; abandoning families and children, working like dogs, living like pigs, not daring to think our own thoughts, submitting to the whims of management with nary a complaint and showing up for "muster" several times a day) were worthwhile? As a Sea Org ex myself, and knowing many others, I assure you we looked down on not only "wogs", we also looked down on lower org staff, public Scientologists and anyone else who was not in the Sea Org. We were PROUD of ourselves! Even the lowliest RPFers "know" that they are among the most enlightened and valuable beings on Earth and that scraping paint off stairs for 78 hours a week in the RPF is better than being a "wog".
Being offloaded and declared SP is a major shock after a lifetime of such devoted service. Even harder is to find out you were lied to and used. All the "hip, hip, hooray - big wins" and "expansion" were a pack of lies. No one in the wog world heard or cares anything about it. Next, if you are lucky, you find out there are people who have been through it, and are willing to help you. The real world is actually a very nice place, and most of us feel like every day is a holiday once we wake up from the cult mind control. No one is going to tap us on the shoulder and take us to HCO for another round of "sec checks". We can go where we want to, eat what we want to, sleep when we want to, work when want to, talk to anyone we want to, read and study and watch what we want to, etc. This is a really big deal when you have spent years having your very slightest thoughts examined and punished, and your every moment accounted for.
Once you realize what a gullible, idiot, asshole you have been by believing in Scientology and hurting everyone who really cared about you, I guess you could wish to erase the past and hide your involvement with Scientology. But IMHO, that is not going to help you. You will still know what you did, and you will still know that your friends, family and fellow Sea Org members are still caught in the trap. Maybe some will be mad at us for telling their stories, but I bet once they are free of the fantasy world that LRH created, they will appreciate having some friends who understand. The only reason I can imagine for keeping quiet is so that people coming out have nowhere else to turn and will be able to get "good" jobs so they can pay off their "freeloader" debts in an attempt to get back in "good standing" with Scientology. In other words, waste the rest of their lives.
The attached RPF list was gone through in detail and each RPF member was placed in one of four categories and the percentages calculated.
The statistics speak for themselves! Out of 225 recent RPF members, 78% have failed and only 22% made it back to post. Is this program working at all? I would say it's time to do an investigation with an evaluation and a program to handle! There must be an SP or an infiltrator on the lines! Or could it be that the RPF really is the "old elephant graveyard" where the old, sick, useless and disillusioned Sea Org members go to die or be offloaded? Who is the "who" responsible for so many newly declared "SPs" having been allowed to hold so many important posts for all these years? All of the RPF Flag Orders were recently "revised and updated" from the original LRH orders. Who gave the final approval for these revisions in LRH's absence? It is RTC's job to "Keep Scientology Working" — yet this new and improved version of the RPF is NOT working!
The above facts and figures are just from the PAC RPF in Los Angeles. I am sure a similar compilation of facts in any of the other RPFs were done, the same percentages would most likely come up over the last few years. Only Scientology management knows how many Sea Org members there are, and believe me they DO know, every Sea Org member has his nose counted several times a day, and is required to account for his every move. Another interesting batch of statistics would include the average age of current Sea Org members, how many were raised in the Sea Org, how many graduated from high school, how many old timers are left, how many have children they never see, how many of those children are on ADC, how many pay child support, how many divorces, how many abortions, how many have life insurance, retirement plans, medical insurance, dental insurance, or even savings accounts. How many are illegally in the US, how many have missed their family's funerals, family reunions, weddings, birthdays, holidays, etc. All so they can help "clear the planet" by scraping paint off cement.
