Wednesday September 17, 1975
There was still the Ninth Grade Social Studies class in the afternoon.
Historically the term “social studies” was a euphemism for the
indoctrination in numerous falsehoods concerning history and society.
Boatman had fully expected to fail the course as a result of
consistently speaking the truth. What he at all didn’t expect was that
the indoctrinator was himself an open full blown homosexual.
An actual real live flaming queer.
Mr. Dronning began by calling on Boatman, as his newest victim of the indoctrination process, to define Democratic Government.
“Democratic Government is a contradiction in terms.” Boatman replied.
Dronning blinked. He then quickly responded.
“You apparently don’t understand what a Democratic Government is. In case you haven’t noticed we actually live under one.”
“Actually we don’t.”said Boatman, “The United States of America was
established as a Constitutional Republic. This was an actual form of
government that was limited to the exercise of explicitly specified
powers. A Democracy, on the other hand, is an unlimited state which
claims the authority to act on the popular will. The murder of Socrates
by a majority vote in the city-state of Athens is a clear case in
point. Also the various Communist states are currently claiming to be
democracies in order to exercise unrestrained power over their
Dronning was clearly angry.
“Do you want to pass this class?”
Boatman stood up to clearly and calmly respond.
“Reality is real and your red pencil will not change any fact of it.
Should you actually issue adverse grades to those refuse to submit to
the nonsense that you are putting out you will only have demonstrated
that you are absolutely unfit to teach any subject in a classroom at
Other victims of the indoctrination process in the classroom sat up and
in some cases openly smiled. The counterparts of two of these students
in the original timeline would go on to make history. Allen Keller and
Victoria Grant would both play a role in The Reformation in the United
States and the subsequent Final War on Earth.
“But then this shouldn’t be a surprise at all. John Dewey, who laid out
the public school system in the United States, was a closet socialist
who was working towards the indoctrination of subsequent generations of
Americans into accepting the doctrine of Socialism over the rational and
free nation that was originally founded and they were born in.”
Dronning shouted at Boatman.
“You are refusing to accept my authority!”
Boatman calmly replied.
“Authority in founded on knowledge, tovarish. As you are
demonstrating the absolute opposite, all of the rational minds in this
room have no choice but to ignore you and your mouth droppings.”
For Dronning, especially being addressed as a comrade in Russian, this
was too much. He ordered Boatman to leave the class and go to the Vice
Steven Marchuk, the Vice Principal of Sheridan Junior High School, had been read in on Boatman and his mission.
“You are already making enemies here.” Said Marchuk.
“These are clearly irrational times.” Boatman replied. “It’s not
surprising that some folks would be outraged at a statement of fact.”
“Dronning also said that you threatened him.”
“Nonsense.” Boatman replied.
Boatman then retrieved a small device from the internal breast pocket of
his suit. He pressed a series of virtual buttons on the dynamic
display and showed the screen of the device to Marchuk. The device then
played a video file of the incident as recorded by the tiny camera on
the front of the suit jacket.
“So he lied.” Said Marchuk.
“Yes.” Boatman replied.
With classes for him practically ended for the day Boatman waited for
Stephanie at the University Avenue entrance of the school. Stephanie
was smiling as she walked up to him. He fully embraced her and gave her
another adult kiss.
“So we’re a couple?” She asked.
“Yes.” He replied.
“Um,” she said, “maybe this is too early, but...”
“Sex?” He said.
He replied to her as an adult speaking to an adult..
“Stephanie, are you ready to become a mother?”
She was shocked at the question.
“No!” She replied.
He nodded and spoke again.
“Some problems take time and thought to solve, this is no exception.”
Of course one of the issues he would face was his relationship to his daughter and the crew of the Falcon. There was absolutely no way that they would follow a man that sexually used a teenage girl.
As he walked with Stephanie to her family home Boatman noticed that Joey was distantly following them.
Something may have to be done about him. He thought.
Later in the evening at his current residence L. Ron Hubbard--the
founder of the Church of Scientology--was opening a large manila
envelope that was addressed to him.
The contents of the envelope were pages containing text and photographs. Hubbard then read the cover letter.
As a practitioner of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism I would not
normally care about any aspect of Scientology or Dianetics. However, as
a result of our accidental journey backwards in time we have
information that does concern you and the COS. After your death on the
original timeline in 1986 a young man, David Miscavige, had in a fashion
contrary to your instructions taken control of the COS. As the head of
COS Miscavige had practiced Black Dianetics and brought the church to
the edge of extinction. Normally I would not be concerned about this but
his actions would ultimately result in the inflicting of needless
suffering on members of the Sea Org and at least one senseless and
preventable death. As an Objectivist I cannot in good conscience allow
this to happen without an intervention. I fully recommend that Miscavige
be permanently disconnected from the COS. As to the question of if
process R2-45 should be carried out on him I will leave this to you.
Evelyn Boatman, Mission Commander of Starship Falcon
Scientology process R2-45 was the termination of a life with a M1911A1
pistol. Hubbard himself had personally described it as, “an enormously
effective process for exteriorization but its use is frowned upon by
this society at this time.”
Some people in the audience at the time had found this statement humorous.
Hubbard now sat back in his chair to examine and contemplate the contents of the package.
The next day in the United Kingdom a girl attending a boarding school
for the upper classes opened a parcel that was addressed to her. Diana
Spencer read a brief history of what had been her life on the original
timeline. The document included a series of photographs that concluded
with her adult counterpart laying in the wreckage of a luxury car in
Diana simply didn’t know what to do.
