Murdochology and Scientology, a few Paralells.

Just a Short aside before I go to work.

It just occurred to me that the current situation with James Murdoch‘s evidence being disputed by various former senior executives at News International, that there are some further similarities between News Corporations current difficulties, and the way the Operation Snow White affair played out for Scientology.

In Operation Snow White Hubbard as far as can be told hung out all the senior people in scientology who were involved, to dry, with several of them serving prison sentences. And I would think of this as a cautionary tale for James Murdoch, powerful people are usually so unwilling to give up their power that they will sacrifice anyone to maintain it. In L Ron Hubbards case it was his own wife. Rupert may well pull the same on his son.

But, and it’s a big but, Hubbard was himself marginalised by those he drew around himself to protect him. David Miscavige emerging as the Cults new defacto leader in a few short years. I wonder who is waiting in the wings to fill the vacuum that James’s departure will leave.

About Transremaxculver

An entirely fictitious username I created for posting on 'alt.religion.scientology', Scientology is something of which I am highly critical. For those of you who don't know, the Church of Scientology have a habit of making life very uncomfortable for even the most legitimate of critics, which is why this username is completely anonymous. Anyway I have become quite fond of this username, and although it has to some extent outgrown it's original purpose, I think a blog is perhaps the right place for me/it to continue to grow and develop.
