Now that Peikoff is retired he is not paying attention to what is happening in the very organization he founded.

It took Peikoff to push out McCaskey, which he would have done quietly, had McCaskey not insisted on publishing the email to Arline Mann. Perhaps he pushed out Barney behind the scenes. Of course that's pure speculation. But I'm not buying the official excuse for Barney's departure. I think he was reluctantly nudged out.

MisterSwig,

There’s something you might not know about.  Leonard Peikoff recently celebrated his 86th birthday, and look where:

(By the way, at least one of the statues you see in the video is by Richard Minns.)

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't follow Barney's blog. They look pretty chummy together.

MisterSwig,

I suspect – don’t know – that Barney organized this get-together to give the impresstion that Peikoff believes in him, that is, believes his story about the Church of Scientology being a benevolent enterprise when he ran five missions for nine years, and that Peikoff believes he runs his colleges honestly now.

It looks like either Peikoff does believe these things or he isn’t paying attention.  He has some excuse today for not paying attention because he’s quite up in years but he had no excuse 14 years ago when he allowed Barney on ARI’s board of directors.  That was four years before Peikoff had McCaskey thrown out.

Why should we expect Peikoff to know fourteen years ago what you only revealed to us a couple years ago? Most people don't conduct journalistic investigations into their friends' histories or business practices.
