The past two weeks have been the busiest ever on this blog. I have been blogging like crazy and some 4000 people have been reading. Lots and lots of comments. And through the many concurrent discussions on half a dozen threads, I have seen a shift in how people here view Scientology. Save for a few commenters, the majority seem to have expressed a rather pragmatic view on Scientology. That Scientology as a whole is indefensible and that one must use what valuable tools there are, combined with any other tools, to serve an individual’s own goals and purposes. That it is wise to not abide by Hubbard’s own goals for you and instead seek to fulfill your own.
Personally, I have clearly expressed that I am not interested in salvaging Scientology as a subject. I want to instead focus on the personal goals of those crossing my paths – using whatever tools needed to help them reach those.
It would be interesting to hear from you what you consider to be the reason for this shift in atmosphere (or if I’m totally off the mark here).
