John P. fra Underground Bunker sin analyse av hvorfor David Miscavige ikke har slippet OT9 og 10 enda:
Miscavige knows that his hold on the "throne" of Scientology is most strongly rooted in political means. (...) On this avenue of retaining power among the faithful, Miscavige holds all the cards -- over $1.5 billion in cash to fund a near-infinite list of dirty tricks and litigation and the control over true believers' "eternity" through the mechanism of disconnection.
But when it comes to actually delivering "product," Miscavige is weak and his opponents are strong. There are so many former auditors and ex-Gold Base personnel who can say authoritatively that there were no LRH notes on any higher levels. (...)
There are so many still-in-the-cult experts in the "tech," such as auditors, who have spent literally years studying the minutiae of Hubbard's "products" that they would instantly be able to tell that the writing style and the subtle details of how things worked wasn't Hubbard's work that they would know something was off, even if they weren't sure exactly what it was. Eventually, that realization would blossom into the full-fledged realization that it was all made up, and they'd leave. And auditors and "tech experts" would have the ears of many older long-time members and would have the credibility to tell them it's all a sham. And that would have a snowball effect on the demographic Miscavige most needs to court -- members with money (after all, the 20-somethings in the cult, kids of existing members, don't typically have much money of their own).
And don't forget that Miscavige is the ultimate perfectionist, spending years spinning his wheels on minutiae while letting huge moneymaking opportunities sink into the swamp. If he were actually trying to write OT IX-OT XV, it will take more years than he has left on this mortal coil to make it happen. (...)
But I believe that other factors, the result of all the strategic errors he's made in the last 30 years. (...) I'm extremely confident that he will continue to tease the upper levels with even more hackneyed promises, events, "prep" classes, and all sorts of other distractions that mean he doesn't actually have to launch anything new.
My take is that ultimately, he's trapped and there is simply no way out.
