we are anonymous,

we are legion.

we do not forgive.

we do not forget.

expect us.

i am TOTALLY digging the “anonymous” thing.

thanks to tony pierce for pointing it out to me.

i have really been thinking about scientology recently. mainly because of tom cruise. i look at his decline and wonder exactly what the cult of scientology is doing to him. i listen to his words in that video and it is really enlightening as to some of the core scientology beliefs. i’ve always been skeptical about scientology as an elitist fad.

i always expect ed that that elitism was engendered by the numbers of celebs involved. but i am beginning to think that scientology itself was elitist long before the influx of stars and pop tarts.

it’s going to be interesting to see if anything comes of this.

  1. There was recently a compilation of articles in my local paper on Cruise and the unauthorized bio that was just published. According to the article, Cruise is supposedly the Number Two leader in Scientology (and if Cruise is Number Two, who plays Dr Evil?). Looking at one of the ‘anonymous’ videos, I can see pictures of Cruise groomed as if he were a political leader. I wonder whether he has such aspirations.

    As for Scientology being an elitist organization, isn’t there some precept that the higher in the cult one moves, the more moolah must be paid up? Sorta like buying your doctorate of divinity from an online ‘university’? So of course the people with too much money who really didn’t have to use their brains (other than having a copious memory capacity) to get by in life, would be the prominent members. I think it’s a pretty good indictment of the moral vacuum that Hollywood and the entertainment industry at large work within, a display of the hollow shell that forms our ‘cultural elite.’

    But then I wonder….Cruise rails against the ‘living better through chemistry’ mentality and other manmade weaknesses that prevail in our society. Can his belief system be all that bad?

    I’m suprised not to find links of Cruise and Scientology with Davos and Bilderberg. But I really didn’t Google them, so I suppose they are out there.

    And yes, this is a blind persona I’m using. You think I need the ‘cultural elite’ to come after me? I’d rather take on the unions!
