Here's more goodies from another big fat cult book I acquired from
a used book store recently (for $6.98).
Note: Part 1 was on "confronting", Part 2 was on "organizing", and
Part 3 is on "working"...
Any typos are most likely my own...

(from _The Volunteer Minister's Handbook_ by L. Ron Hubbard,
A public relations personnel has to be spot on in (a) confronting (b)
organizing (c) working.
The last essential ingredient of a PR is the ability to WORK.
The ability to address letters, push around files, haul furniture
into place, handle towering stacks of admin in nothing flat are all PR
To be able to tear out to Poughkeepsie before lunch and set up the
Baby Contest and build a scene for a Press Conference on Catfish before
two, and get dressed, meet the governor by six is WORK. It takes sweat
and push and energy.
A PR should be able to get out a trade paper in hours where an
"editor" might take weeks.
The ability to work must be established in a potential PR before
wasting any training time as a PR who can't work fails every time.
*** END FAIR USE EXTRACT ***
There's one of those nasty "f" words that gets applied to the cult
of Scientology quite often. Yes, "fails". As in fails to handle a
Hill 10 situation like alt.religion.scientology and the Internet.
Fails to handle the Fishman affadavit on dozens of Dutch WWW pages.
Fails to hold on to trade secret status of their "Advanced Tech-
nology". Fails time and time again.
Let's face it, it takes a lot of work to keep up on the happenings
in alt.religion.scientology, the web pages, and #clambake. Us wog
non-PR types seem to be having no trouble at it and most of us
are just normal folks fighting for freedom.
Our OSA "friends" are having trouble keeping up. The bridge is
crumbling out from under them (WTG Warren McShane!) and they
are drowning because they can't handle it. They aren't getting
enough sleep. They aren't eating right. Their tone is dropping
every day. Too bad. FLUNK.
