I had not heard of the man in question, but the tactic being deployed by your employer is all too familiar. Your companies owner appears to have been
fully duped, or is in some kind of cahoots, with the Scientology machine, from the seems of things.
Let me explain why I believe this.
Scientology is basically a mysticised racket, a "religious" mafia. Its adherents are forced to perform certain services, provide a certain amount of
value to the organisation, by various methods. Some, the elite amongst their ranks, are expected to use their fame and fortune to make the
organisation look legitimate to the idiot masses, to lend credence to the incredible, to make the falsehood appear as if it may have merit. The likes
of Tom Cruise and his ilk, are those who are most able in this regard, and therefore are bought forward as poster children for the organisation.
Salespersons of note and other similar figures are also considered of high value to the organisation, because their ability to manipulate grants them
a power almost equal to the star power of higher value assets, like the aforementioned Cruise. Although their reach is not as great, their
understanding of the weakness of human minds, makes them able to grasp people more deeply than even the stars can, because the stars are simply saying
lines, whereas these salesmen, these con men are, in addition to being able to deliver a line, persuasive in other, more subtle ways.
People see their narcissism, and misread it as strength, a trait these people share with psychopaths, the ability to be seen as one thing, while
remaining a much lesser other.
Meanwhile, those who have been duped, including in all likelihood, the owner of your company, will purchase their services or their seminars and
their talks, at a massive cost to them financially. And heres where the confidence trick really bites. Once the purchase has been made, the weakness
of the purchaser can really capture them in an unhelpful cycle, because they then have to justify that massive expense. In order to do so, they will
force these seminars upon their workforces, with the effect that they can sit back, and watch the bauble they purchased at great cost, being used. The
Emperor forces his new wardrobe upon the masses, to make himself feel better about how foolish his choices have been. And now, the final, most
insidious stage of the deceit comes along. You see, the seminar is no longer about success, or about the passing of great knowledge from a teacher to
a student. In fact, it never was. Now the talk is being transmitted to the entire company, thats perhaps hundreds of minds, perhaps thousands,
depending on the company.
And there will be, somewhere within that talk, certain phrases, certain anecdotes, certain little tidbits which will loosen the minds of those who
listen hardest to it, split their filters wide open, thereto fill the mind afterward with nonsense. I would be highly surprised if, this fellow being
a Scientologist, he has not managed to work into his delivery, certain tactics which make those who listen to his seminars more likely to investigate
Scientology, and not from a skeptical point of view, but from the point of view of prospects for the future.
This talk is likely to be little more than a memological viral assault, designed to weaken a persons mental endurance in order to make them more
receptive to programming, even desirous of being programmed. Note, you are required to expose yourself to this individual, on a daily basis.
Repetition breeds familiarity, familiarity reduces caution, wears away at skepticism, which is why it is said that a lie repeated often enough,
becomes seen as truth. This phrase is not a witticism, or a trifling throwaway remark, but has been proven accurate time and time again.
So, this insidious agent will be in your eyes, your ears, daily and on weekends, softening the edges of your resolve, weakening the skepticism,
damaging your critical thinking capacity. Now, it may not work on you. It may be so soft and subtle that it only grasps the most easily conditioned
amongst the work force, but rest assured, this IS a type of brainwashing, and is VERY dangerous, largely speaking, because it is effective.
If you are going to comply with the demands of the company owner, and view this material as instructed, you MUST be mindful of the tactics which may
be being used by the speaker, and the motivations which may lay behind his every word, every expression on his face, every mannerism and small motion
of the hands. Suggestion is a powerful tool in the wrong hands, and virtually all salespersons are the wrong hands to leave it in.
