VAN BLARIGAN STORY RESURRECTED
(April 5, 2000) Writer Thomas Mournian, writer for the Internet alternative news outlet San
Francisco Bay Guardian, described his trip to Tranquility Bay in Jamaica. The date of the trip was not stated but seems to be
a couple of years ago since the writer was not aware of David’s statement to People magazine in September, 1998 which is contained
on this web site. The writer, Mourniann, went there on
a quest to meet David van Blarigan and get the story from him about what he thought about being sent there. David van Blarigan was
the center of a court action where a local Bay area prosecutor lost his legal action to force David’s parents to bring him back home.
The article traced Tranquility Bay’s TASK seminars back through Lifespring, est, to the Spanish Inquisition, the anti-Papist trials,
and Chinese thought control or “reeducation.” As you might imagine, the general tone is hostile.
