"Unfortunately, we were not able to find a volunteer who had been brought up in the Sea Org. "

I just love this second sentence...because they never asked...did they?

"Unfortunately, we were not able to find a volunteer who had been brought up in the Sea Org. "

The afternoon began with accounts of second generation membership from Nora Crest and Chris Shelton. Unfortunately, we were not able to find a volunteer who had been brought up in the Sea Org. I’ve interviewed many over the years, and been horrified at the neglect all have suffered. Nora and Chris each had at least one sensible parent, so have recovered more easily. Many children were simply abandoned in the Sea Org, so had no real model of care-giving and exhibit induced Asperger’s Syndrome in later life. It is still remarkable how well most have coped, denied compassion throughout childhood, and one of the dearest people I’ve ever met was a second generation Sea Org member.


Ah, So that is what my problem is...I have induced Aspergers Syndrome...

What are the symptoms of Asperger syndrome?

The symptoms of Asperger syndrome vary and can range from mild to severe. Common symptoms include:
  • Problems with social skills: Children with Asperger syndrome generally have difficulty interacting with others and often are awkward in social situations. They generally do not make friends easily.
  • Restricted or repetitive behaviours: Children with this condition may develop odd, repetitive movements, such as hand wringing or finger twisting.
  • Unusual preoccupations or rituals: A child with Asperger syndrome may develop rituals that he or she refuses to alter, such as getting dressed in a specific order.
  • Communication difficulties: People with Asperger syndrome may not make eye contact when speaking with someone. They may have trouble using facial expressions and gestures, and understanding body language. They also tend to have problems understanding language in context.
  • Limited range of interests: A child with Asperger syndrome may develop an intense, almost obsessive, interest in a few areas, such as sports statistics, weather or maps.
  • Coordination problems: The movements of children with Asperger syndrome may seem clumsy or awkward.
  • Skilled or talented: Many children with Asperger syndrome are exceptionally talented or skilled in a particular area, such as music or maths.

I have a tremendous respect for all your work Jon, and that is why I just cannot fathom this. I may develope a tendancy towards Tourettes syndrome without regrets. You may live to regret this, I, however won't.
