This weekend, in his blog entry Miscavige’s annihilation of Tom Cruise (part one), Marty quotes from an LRH lecture in which LRH says that showering someone with presents can actually prove fatal:
And if you want to just get rid of somebody…start giving them a lot of presents. [If] every 15 or 20 minutes, why, they could receive another present, they…they would either run away utterly or die in their tracks.
— LRH, “Cycles of Action” lecture from the Philadelphia Doctorate Course series
LRH goes on to say, essentially, that money doesn’t buy you happiness. Except that while the rest of us can say that in four words, LRH takes about four hours.
Incidentally, the gist of Marty’s blog entry is that when Tom Cruise admired David Miscagive’s Harley-Davidson – which had been custom-painted by cheap Scientology labor – David had the same guys paint two of Tom’s bikes to match. This, according to Marty, is proof that DM is out to destroy Tom Cruise. (Death by presents!) Doesn’t make sense to me, but what do I know? I’m just a wog. Hell, I’m still taking ibuprofen when I get a headache – how ass-backwards can a thetan get?
