All the worlds an SP and all the people in it
according to David Miscavige COB
According to David Miscavige, the self styled Chairman of the Board (COB) of Scientology, the entire world is composed of Suppressive Persons (SP) and all are out to get him! How could this be? You ask. Most people on the planet have no knowledge of Scientology, let alone Miscavige. Yet in Miscavige's eyes this can be easily demonstrated.
Historically, we know from many affidavits, horror experiences and the ferocity of Miscavige's abuses exposed on various blogs, notably Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder and many others, that anyone who disagrees with the COB is labelled an SP. In his eyes this justifies suppressing them in turn in any way he can. Ruling with a Stalinist fear he keeps his minions in line who do his every whim and declare anyone on the basis of opinion and hate. As a result, the number of SP declares is an increasing statistic each week. Currently it is in power and likely to continue to rise. By the same token, anyone who associates with an SP is also an SP in his eyes. This is demonstrated by the continued enforcement of the disconnection policy despite LRH's statement:
"Since we can now handle all types of cases disconnection as a condition is cancelled."
How does this mean everyone on the planet is an SP (in Miscavige's eyes)?
There is a principle called the six degrees of separation "Six degrees of separation is the theory that everyone and everything is six or fewer steps away, by way of introduction, from any other person in the world, so that a chain of "a friend of a friend" statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps. It was originally set out by Frigyes Karinthy and popularized by a play written by John Guare."
Since all people on this planet can theoretically be connected through a friend of a friend, i.e. you can know anyone on this planet, including these labelled SP through a friend of a friend of a friend etc. Those connections exist, followed through or not. And as most people do not know or care about Scientology (or Miscavige) It then follows that such a connection makes ALL those who are connected SPs also.
It gets better.
With the advent of the social networks, it is possible to connect even more directly to most people in the western world. Example, I have two Facebook accounts with at least 4000+ 'friends' on each. As I am undoubtedly considered an SP, that makes all those connections SP also. Not only that, because all those connections are 'SP' it makes all their connections SP as well. It means that all those I meet at work are SP. When I go to the supermarket and talk to the cashier, that person is a marked man (or woman).
This can even be shown mathematically. Watts and Strogatz demonstrated the average path length between two nodes in a random network is equal to
"ln N / ln K, where N = total nodes and K = acquaintances per node. Thus if N = 300,000,000 (90% of the US population) and K = 30 then Degrees of Separation = 19.5 / 3.4 = 5.7 and if N = 6,000,000,000 (90% of the World population) and K = 30 then Degrees of Separation = 22.5 / 3.4 = 6.6. (Assume 10% of population is too young to participate.)"
Bingo! According to the Miscavige philosophy of 'who's out to get me', well I guess it is everyone.
As I wrote this the latest is Monique Rathburn, who is not even a scientologist, who has filed a lawsuit on the church of Scientology, Miscavige and other parties for extreme harassment. Her complaint being that 'she's not a Scientologist, has never attacked the church, and her only involvement is being married to a once-prominent church member.
Right now he must be as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
