Either scientology Canada has backed off following me, or they have hired some particularly good professionals. Yesterday, I had an extended informal meeting with a number of alien and resident principals and deputies. They had largely written off scientology as effectively finished business and were on to considering how to deal with the practices of more pervasive but less vicious organizations. I argued that taking such a viewpoint was premature even in the face of such evidence as they had at hand. I won't say my opinion carried the day, but I have reason to expect a high level reexamination of the current and projected situations. A good deal of the discussion was about how certain emerging technologies will impact the social structure. I expect to go into this subject here to get more input within the next few days. One thing which came out of these discussions is that certain classes of frauds, including those of scientology, will become much harder to do in the not so distant future.
