Quote from : Wikipedia : Xenophobia
Xenophobia is a dislike and/or fear of that which is unknown or different from oneself.
It comes from the Greek words ξένος (xenos), meaning "stranger," "foreigner" and φόβος (phobos), meaning "fear."
The term is typically used to describe a fear or dislike of foreigners or of people significantly different from oneself, usually in the context of visibly differentiated minorities.
Publishers Weekly : Amazon Review :
Gardner, a columnist and senior writer for the Ottawa Citizen, is both matter-of-fact and entertaining in this look at fear and how it shapes our lives.
Although we are capable of reason, says Gardner, we often rely instead on intuitive snap judgments.
We also assume instinctively, but incorrectly, that if examples of something can be recalled easily, that thing must be common.
And what is more memorable than headlines and news programs blaring horrible crimes and diseases, plane crashes and terrorist attacks?
In fact, such events are rare, but their media omnipresence activates a gut-level fear response that is out of proportion to the likelihood of our going through such an event.
It doesn't help that scientific data and statistics are often misunderstood and misused and that our risk assessment is influenced less by the facts than by how others respond.
Gardner's vivid, direct style, backed up by clear examples and solid data from science and psychology, brings a breath of fresh air and common sense to an emotional topic.

The Church of Scientology internationally has grown from one Church in 1954 to more than 8000 Churches, Missions and groups in 165 countries today. The Church sponsors an international human rights education initiative as well as the world's largest nongovernmental drug education program.
Four new Churches have opened in 2009, most recently the Church of Scientology of Rome on October 24, with a new Church opening in Washington, DC, on October 31. In April, three new Churches were dedicated: in Malmo, Sweden; Dallas, Texas; and Nashville, Tennessee. The Scientology religion has expanded more in the past year than in the past five years combined and more in the past five years than in the past five decades combined.

It's a common misconception that most Scientologists believe in the whole Xenu bit. Actually that story is not revealed to Scientologists until something called OT3, which is a fairly advanced grade, so a large majority of Scientologists actually have no idea who Xenu is (yes I know that's hard to believe in the age of the internet but Scientology restricts access to that sort of stuff.)
And the Church of Scientology is deteriorating rapidly. the free access to information and inside whistleblowers is the worst thing imaginable to Scientology.
Their numbers are dwindling rapidly, despite what they would have their public and their members believe.
I believe that we will see the fall of the COS within a decade or two

Interesting read. You might be the first person who I've really seen treat the Xenu story as allegory or symbolism for something deeper. The landmark stuff always seemed to have things in common with Scientology too so that's no big surprise.
That the Xenu story is a parable or symbolic, or code even, would explain so much.
I thought though, as far as their global agenda that they didn't think they were that close. I was under the impression that this cult had reached it's peak and was losing it's numbers. And they thought they had a really long way to go even before that started happening.
They might think they are going to be in control of the world someday but even if they succeed nothing is going to get better until humanity itself changes. Different rulers, different rules, wont matter... only people can make a difference.
Quote from : Wikipedia : Cult
Cult pejoratively refers to a group whose beliefs or practices could be considered strange or sinister.
The term was originally used to denote a system of ritual practices.
The narrower, derogatory sense of the word is a product of the 20th century, especially since the 1980s, and is a result of the anti-cult movement, which uses the term in reference to groups seen as authoritarian, exploitative and possibly dangerous.
The popular, derogatory sense of the term has no currency in academic studies of religions, where "cults" are subsumed under the neutral label of "new religious movement", while academic sociology has partly adopted the popular meaning of the term.

Quote from : Clearwater, Florida : The Town Scientology Bought
Decades ago, L. Ron Hubbard moved his Cult of Scientology into Clearwater, Florida.
The plan, entitled Project Normandy, was to take over Clearwater.
Documentation of this comprehensive operation – which included plans to infiltrate government and media organizations, and to identify and “handle” enemies – was discovered in a 1977 FBI raid of Scientology headquarters.
Despite the discovery of Project Normandy, the cult has achieved notable success in carrying out this project.
The cult has come to own a very generous proportion of the city, with the total value of owned property estimated at $40 million in 2000.
Given the cult’s ambition to continue to expansion in Clearwater, I would be interested in knowing how much land they control now, 8 years later.
Some have come to call Clearwater Scientology’s town.
