Scientology's New 'International Dissemination and Distribution Center'

Scientology dissemination centerThe Church of Scientology can now easily blanket the world with its booklets, posters, flyers, magazines and more, thanks to its new "International Dissemination and Distribution Center" in Los Angeles.  Among other things, the center has:

  • A new state-of-the-art 121 ton press, fed with rolls of paper that are 10 miles long;
  • The capacity to have 1 dozen publications rolling out month after month in English, Japanese, German, Russian or various other languages without missing a beat;
  • The ability to print 55,000 pages of Scientology materials an hour, which is the equivalent of  twice the contents of a public library every 24 hours;
  • The capacity to print enough posters in one hour to reach every subway station in every major city on earth;
  • A machine to address, sort and seal 150,000 pieces in an 8 hour shift that is hard-wired directly into the US Postal Service, with a postal representative on site.

All of this is housed in a 185,000-square-foot center.

    Scientology is a dangerous criminal cult. Don't take my word for it, google "operation freakout" or "operation snow white", and see what they do to people that expose them. Better yet, find out how Scientologists are using local businesses to scam the public and how the treat their own members: http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2009/reports/project/

      Just walk through downtown Clearwater FL at lunch time and tell me that you do not feel intimidated by the oppressive uniformity of their dress code.

      You know some of u are right the Scientology movement is very danderous but only to 2.5 present of the population. They happen to be the suppressers of man and the true criminals of mankind that leach the labor of the true workers..so if your not one of the 2.5 present u have nothing to worry about…

        Would Scientology benefit from some Selsun Blue?

    Scientology's budget is 90% propaganda, and their nutty agenda to "clear the planet" is really about deforesting the world, with their junk mail, sent mostly to people who can't get off their mailing list without using a lawyer, and re-editions of insane Hubbard books which they sell to their robotized membership, and dump on libraries. (Libraries, where book space is often at a a premium, invariably dump this brainwashing crap.)

    Hubbard claimed Dianetics was "science" but no other scientist even acknowledges it, let alone uses the ideas.

    One of their star eco-offenders is John Travolta, who flies his tiny entourage around in a private commercial airliner, for fun and pleasure. Then there's the cult's private study ship, the asbestos-loaded Freewinds.

    All this for an organization with at most 50,000 members and shrinking? The manufactured need for this was a good way for Miscavige to extract more money from those 50,000.

    All the promotion might help a bit. Ultimately, what they can't defeat through PR are all the people who know exactly what goes on in there and tell the world through the internet. Former members are their biggest liability. There is no mystery any more to pull in the suckers. I think that if John Travolta or Tom Cruise really wanted to be heroes instead of play them in movies, they would open up and tell people the truth about the cult. After that point, I don't think the cult of Scientology would exist anymore.

    All the marketing may assist a bit. Eventually, what they cannot defeat through PR are all the folks who know exactly what goes on in there and tell the world via the internet. Former members are their greatest liability. There's no mystery any a lot more to pull within the suckers. I think that if John Travolta or Tom Cruise actually needed to be heroes as opposed to play them in movies, they would open up and inform folks the reality concerning the cult. Right after that stage, I do not think the cult of Scientology would exist any longer.
