Neither am I. But I think deep down we all know what Lisa would have needed. I'm convinced she herself knew it too. She needed time-off. Being away from the high pressure of "Make money, Make more money" that's inherent in a $cieno setting. I am convinced that is why she contacted her family. She needed a vacation, like everybody outside $cientology every once in a while takes. I am not convinced that she could be diagnosed as anything more than "severely confused" or simply "overworked" at the time of the minor car accident. Such a diagnose generally does not warrant any medication at all. Of course the very "knowledgeable" $cientologists around her recognized the symptoms immediately. And they knew she still had money on the bank. So they pressured her more. When that failed, and she found her way to a hospital, in stead of allowing her some time to reflect and get her thoughts back in order, they threatened her. They threatened her by telling her that she would be mistreated. Since they had indoctrinated her before with the notion that "Psychs are eeevil", they were able to actually *scare* her out of that hospital, and into their own care. She must have been *terrified* indeed. Once she was in the 'care' of scientology, of course there was absolutely no chance for 'reflection' or "rest and relaxation". She was treated like she didn't exist, as Hubbard ordered. And she knew that that treatment would not stop until she would conform, i.e. until she would behave, talk, and *think* exactly like Hubbard would have expected from her. I believe she was actually trying to accomplish that task. And in doing so - still without communication, and in no position to "freely" reflect on anything at all - she (further) discovered the real value of Hubbard's words. She became mentally ill, like he was. And she did all this knowingly, but not willingly. She was forced to, because she knew she had no alternative, no way out. Except one... I would judge Lisa's to be a case of "Death By Mental Terrorism". $cientology *is* Mental Terrorism. Groeten,
