Hello , I am an ex Scientologist , this blog is primarily about that but I may address other topics as the mood hits me to . I was in Scientology for 25 years and spent about 10,000 hours using the indoctrination and thought reform method "study tech " . I also spent time on staff and met hundreds of Scientologists and did hundreds of the cult practices . Many were the "ethics cycles and OW writeups " that really are an attempt to suppress or remove a person's identity and replace it with a mental pseudo clone of Ron Hubbard . To make a fanatical slave for the cult .

I looked outside the cult for answers in about January 2014 and left the cult in about March of 2014 . While in about 99% of members have no idea of the truth .

We are told we are in a mental therapy or spiritual enhancement or religion or science for helping people unlock potential . Or any of several other fronts that all pretend kind and humanitarian goals .

The truth is Scientology is a terrorist mind control cult and this blog is my attempt to understand and expose that . And try to state as clearly as possible the tools that I have found helpful in dealing with this .

This thread is specifically to address my idea that with the tremendous positive press coverage the new film Going Clear is getting and the Scientology cult's predictable reaction of lying and attacking the participants and even mainstream media reviewing the film in large numbers creates a unique opportunity . The main thing needed for Scientology to survive is almost all public to be uninformed what it is and does . It is a totalitarian and oppressive organization .

With the current attacks the press can be informed clearly and simply what the cult is doing how it operates and basic doctrine on this and current and historical precedent . Keep the message clear , simple and verifiable as the unbelievable claim needs extraordinary evidence to back it up without ambiguity .

I will have some links to start with Robert Vaughn Young's terrific article on his role in this :

And Chris Shelton ( aka Galactic Patrol at ESMB ) has a very good short video as well :Scientology Dirty Internet Tricks on YouTube

We can also compile quotes from Hubbard on this .

Fair game.
May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed. -Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter of 18 October 1967 Ron Hubbard

THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them.
- Ron Hubbard, "Technique 88"

The homes, property, places and abodes of persons who have been active in attempting to suppress Scientology or Scientologists are all beyond any protection of Scientology Ethics, unless absolved by later Ethics or an amnesty.[...]A truly Suppressive Person or group has no rights of any kind and actions taken against them are not punishable.

-HCO PL March 1, 1965 "HCO (Division 1), Ethics, Suppressive Acts, Suppression of Scientology and Scientologists, The Fair Game Law" Ron Hubbard

Never let entheta pass unhandled. Prevention is better than cure. Handle fast, handle with live communication, handle with documentation, use PR technology including tone scale evaluation. Liaise with your senior and the other divisions/bureaux. Maintain ethics presence and see the matter through to a completion including the discrediting of the attacker.[...]If there will be a long-term threat, you are to immediately evaluate and originate a black PR campaign to destroy the person's repute and to discredit them so thoroughly that they will be ostracized[...]

It is my specific intention that by the use of professional PR tactics any opposition be not only dulled but permanently eradicated. This takes data and planning before positive action can occur.
Ron Hubbard, "Handling Hostile Contacts / Dead Agenting"

All taken from the online article here :

And :

"This is the correct procedure: Spot who is attacking us. Start investigating them promptly for felonies or worse using our own professionals, not outside agencies. Double curve our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them. Start feeding lurid, blood sex crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press. Don’t ever tamely submit to an investigation of us. Make it rough, rough on attackers all the way."
 Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 25 February 1966

Point out how ALL press and critics reporting negative info- true or not -on Scientology are treated and viewed .

"Now, get this as a technical fact, not a hopeful idea. Every time we have investigated the background of a critic of Scientology, we have found crimes for which that person or group could be imprisoned under existing law. We do not find critics of Scientology who do not have criminal pasts."
 Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Bulletin, 5 November 1967, "Critics of Scientology"

"Show me any person who is critical of us and I’ll show you crimes and intended crimes that would stand a magistrate’s hair on end."
 Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Bulletin, 4 April 1965

So they can see THEY are labeled "Sps" and "below 2.0" on the "tone scale" AUTOMATICALLY for even mentioning the film neutrally !

And then show them the treatment this gets them .

"In any event, any person from 2.0 down on the Tone Scale should not have, in any thinking society, any civil rights of any kind, because by abusing those rights he brings into being arduous and strenuous laws which are oppressive to those who need no such restraints."
Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, 1989 Ed., p. 145

"There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the Tone Scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the Tone Scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow."
Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, p. 170

"The sudden and abrupt deletion of all individuals occupying the lower bands of the Tone Scale from the social order would result in an almost instant rise in the cultural tone and would interrupt the dwindling spiral into which any society may have entered."
Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, p. 170

"A Venezuelan dictator once decided to stop leprosy. He saw that most lepers in his country were also beggars. By the simple expedient of collecting and destroying all the beggars in Venezuela an end was put to leprosy in that country."
 Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, p. 171

"Unfortunately, it is all too often true that suppressors to a creative action must be removed before construction and creation takes place. Any person very high on the Tone Scale may level destruction toward a suppressor."
Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, p. 159

"A truly Suppressive Person or group has no rights of any kind and actions taken against them are not punishable."
 Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 1 March 1965, HCO (Division 1) "Ethics, Suppressive Acts, Suppression of Scientology and Scientologists"

All from the article :

Now lots of supporting evidence can be found and only very clear supportable stuff should be used as Scientology will always try to confuse and deny and smear accusers etc. so as to misdirect so counter with simple verified claims with lots of evidence and court records etc . The admissions of former OSA members can help too .

And please keep it simple :remember for many press and public this is their first interaction with Scientology and it will be baffling to start with - do not let David Miscavige hide behind complexity and lies .

The Secret Of Scientology Part 3 : Why Are Scientologists So Stubbornly Obstinate ?


The secret of Scientology part 3 : Why are Scientologists so stubbornly obstinate ? :  aka why the cognitive dissonance is self defending and criticism denying  done selectively in Scientologist's minds .

 This post is about a very unusual and extreme phenomena often exhibited by cultists , particularly the heavily indoctrinated in Scientology . I see it as a natural consequence of the indoctrination and other methods . I view indoctrination as among other things using covert hypnosis and forced cognitive restructuring installed via confusion ( aka contradiction or paradox ) and repetition to install new thoughts , feelings and behavior in the mind of the victim which have conflict with the prior thoughts , feelings and behavior that manifests as cognitive distortions . This is in a method that buries cognitive dissonance in the subconscious via denial and dissociation that makes it so long resolved issues and stress are hidden in the subconscious and projected ( often viciously with blind prejudiced hate ) onto " others "
Projection can be defined as  “Attributing one’s own thoughts, feelings, or motives to another.” This characteristic is not uncommon, and we have probably all witnessed it. An angry man might accuse others of being hostile and antagonistic. Another example might be a con-artist might be under the impression that everyone else is trying to con him or her.Sources: Weiten, Wayne. Psychology: Themes and Variations. Thomson Wadsworth. To describe the burying in the subconscious/unconscious one could  call it conditioned repression RegardingPsychologicalDefenseMechanisms -Repression underlies all the others, and it is possibly the oddest of them all. Repression is defined by “Keeping distressing thoughts and feelings buried in the unconscious.” There has been much controversy over repressed memories, and many court cases as a result of this. A little girl’s memory of being molested when she was a toddler might become a repressed memory. The little girl will completely forget about this experience, until the memory might resurface years later. The trouble is, there have been various accounts of memories resurfacing that have no truth or bearing to them. Repressed memories then are unreliable and oftentimes untrue. Conversely; there have been several cases of repressed memories being accurate; one must simply take an account of a repressed memory with a grain of salt.

Sources: Weiten, Wayne. Psychology: Themes and Variations. Thomson Wadsworth.

. But that does not truly handle the underlying causes and makes the anxiety and stress escalate , until it may become constant and may overwhelm the mind as a person does what seems right but only makes things worse . Hubbard resets the identity to a pseudo identity that is entirely submissive and in a double bind as following Hubbard does not really relieve the dissonance and the new identity is so bound by " certainty " er delusion and false validation to the perception of value in Hubbard and his " technology " that any doubt , questioning or use of independent or critical thinking regarding such is also an attack on one's own identity , value , ego and beliefs and triggers negative emotions and beliefs and behavior toward one's self . That is the trick of his rhetoric : he makes his claim of being an authority constantly tied to his claim of a Scientologist's value . He uses identification as defined here :Identification is defined as “Bolstering self-esteem by forming an imaginary or real alliance with some person or group.” This is a fairly common method of attempting to forget about ones troubles, happens fairly often, especially in insecure people. A person joining a sports team, fraternity, social clique or even subcultures are all examples of this.Sources: Weiten, Wayne. Psychology: Themes and Variations. Thomson Wadsworth.

Simply , he marries the idea of his ability and methods to his victim's self worth and pride making the victim trapped to either obey the obviously ineffective method and hide from that via self destructive delusions or face it - even slightly - and with the ability to hold conflicting or nonsensical ideas and hold off cognitive dissonance removed ( as the trance logic which held it in place falls when total hypnotic blind domination lapses ) so doubting or looking causes self destruction via intense doubt , confusion , anxiety , negative emotions , overwhelm and many other negative factors manifesting consciously all at once overwhelming the mind and coping mechanisms .

So , this resets the fight or flight to have either one always seem wrong - leave or panic and lose a lot and have your mind crushed . Stay and try to obey and comply and build and build the hidden stress and confusion in the subconscious . All because of one inescapable easily observable fact : Scientology does not , never has and never will work . The person sees evidence over and over that can be confirmed objectively so they must hide the truth from their own mind and bury it . The more that is buried as negative emotions the more trauma is there and retained hidden from the conscious mind manifesting as stress related conditions . The more that is there the more threatening to the victim is any doubt or invalidation of Hubbard and his " tech " , as it is identified almost completely with the ego of the victim .

So , this is why there is a make break point of either being and staying a Scientologist - either the method works and via rhetoric and other methods combined the victim accepts the new identity and joins ego to submission to Hubbard nearly completely or they do not become a Scientologist . KSW has many examples of rhetoric where Hubbard praise Scientologists and ties it to the " tech " and himself all in circular logic . Simply the tech works cause he is so smart and an authority because it works and you are able and smart if you are a Scientologist since " wogs " are not and...many claims and no proof but they each support one another .

Many drives are crushed , distorted and attempted to be reset by Hubbard but the true identity remains underneath fighting to regain control ( figuratively ) so stress ensues and remains . Plainly man is not a clockwork orange : totally annihilating and rebuilding an identity makes a constant state of conflict triggered to manifest when the differences in identities is forced via observation into the conscious mind . Reflection and relaxation may sometimes bring the original identity back , or at least allow conscious awareness to resurface , if only occasionally . That is why " thinking dim thoughts " and many other things are discouraged as well as the insane schedules being routine in Scientology. You could wake up if not exhausted . So the flight - fight drive is both triggered and suppressed in the insane dilemma .

This is to me the double bind Jon Atack and I write on at an extreme level .

I think the following thread is relevant :!!!

And the escalating hidden stress, which causes the stress conditions is what strengthens and maintains the adamantium wall in my opinion . This is in the Secret of Scientology Part 2 : the Adamantium Wall :

The books Rape of the Mind , True Believer by Eric Hoffer , Battle for the Mind, Hypnotism Comes of Age , Recovery from Cults , Trances People Live and several abstracts from ICSA all have relevant info on this . Battle for the Mind in particular had an excellent chart detailing ideas on stress as it continues people having reactions including breakdowns and stress related conditions . Rape of the Mind has similar info on POWs under stress .

Oh , additionally the degree of the buried negative emotions and dissonance directly influences and fuels the " certainty " ( blind delusional prejudiced conviction ) and the intensity of projection as the buried effects are pushed to the conscious mind by evidence of unworkability or criticism .

Several mental factors determine details about the projection but it is built cumulatively and becomes more unreasoning and intense as the indoctrination and transformation to the new identity continue and more completely suppress the old identity . It also can be triggered more quickly in the long and thoroughly indoctrinated as they have a greater unconscious association between " critics " , " Downstats " etc. and the dissonance resurfacing that prompts , rapid blind hateful attacks . In the victim's mind the critic or downstat must be the " reason for " Scientology not creating perfection of self and group .And this is blindly associated with all the victim's doubts , failures , and negative emotions as if the vaunted " technology " worked visible products would show the workability .

So , Scientology shifts from focusing on making good results - which cannot occur as it has no real beneficial technology - to finding " others " aka scapegoats or "SPs" or " DBs " etc. etc . and attacking them as an acceptable method for expressing mounting frustrations without revealing the fraud . After all the SPs are seen as an " unusual exception " to the " only game in the universe where everybody wins " . That attacking and controlling and disconnecting and declaring etc. etc. happens to tens of thousands is hidden from most cultists - while in . Hubbard borrowed a page from his role model Hitler who is quoted as saying : 'If the Jews didn't exist, we would have to invent them'. End quote source BBC :

Plainly , a mad irrational mob driven by blind hate ( like the one in to Kill a Mockingbird...something familiar about that title...anyway ) in the demented minds of both psychopathic cult leaders had an enemy to project negative emotions on as a unifying factor and means to control the masses - covertly .

In every model I am aware of cults need enemies or acceptable targets to hate as the promised paradise that never comes needs an excuse and misdirection from why it always fails . All groups having irrational blind hate may follow this and via projection fool the group member . So remember this when you meet race separatists and anti - gays etc. When they have negative emotions as we all do they are " justified " in hating more and more " inferiors " and enough hate leads to inspiration for action . So , intolerance is double damnation - it makes you wrong arrogant , and driven by growing hate and also pressured into crimes against completely innocent victims ! You ruin yourself and your " enemy " ! I would not preach this so hard if Scientology was not such a vicious hate group .

Incidentally to finish my earlier thoughts on this thread , in cognitive dissonance theory is the idea that in situations where a double bind ensues and there is conflict over two or more choices , the option chosen is the one that is seen as benefiting or preserving the ego of the person more. So applied to the pseudo identity and the Scientology doctrine and Hubbard all being tied in the mind of the cultist to the rhetorical stacking of validation of Hubbard , the " technology " and the ego together in a large ( hypnotically received ) circular argument of Hubbard knows because he made the " tech " that " works " which works because he as an authority says so and you see it as you are superior and wise like him so your value goes up or down with his and the " techs " .

So , following this you get the Scientologist having trance logic hide contradiction that is implanted by Hubbard via the doctrine and hiding ( through denial and dissociation ) especially experiences that challenge the ego . I feel this answers the " why do Scientologists have rational critical thought and perceiving contradictions and fallacies seem to work selectively ? They seem to work to defend Hubbard and his group and methods but fail to see his flaws and the group's and his method's ? " . Well the pseudo identity has all of the ego tied into the validation of Hubbard , his group and methods - including the language . So , as there is heavy dissonance , even if buried in the subconscious , it " keys - in " - really is triggered hypnotically - when threats to the ego tied to the value of Hub and the method , language , group etc. are seen . That is why arguing with a Scientologist is maddening - they can only perceive half or less of the conversation and automatically reject certain ideas and will not even consider certain ideas - any that threaten the stability of the pseudo identity . So , it is irrelevant how well constructed and logical your ideas are - automatic rejection via the implanted fallacies and embedded commands from Hubbard is seen as ego and mind and sanity preserving and the doctrine as being sacred and above any doubt . So this is why the mind is welded shut and stays that way . Now this is not absolute and eternal but relative and the most extreme case . Many consider the argument they never formed an answer for or the proof Hubbard was wrong that they somehow cannot deny if it breaks through the cult identity and filter . So , in talking to Scientologists try to find a nonthreatening way to show them as correct and not crush their ego or trigger an automatic " critic " situation or other that is expressly defined in the doctrine . You have to walk a tightrope of getting the critical factor engaged but not triggering the pseudo identity and commands that guide it to take over and reject you and your info . And then getting something that moves the cultist away from being the pseudo identity and returning to their old identity . Now the pseudo identity takes hold to greatly varying degrees and each is custom built based on what is " studied " and done and what is repeated and what is associated with the trances and other mental changes produced . Each has unique content and strength in different areas and no two are exactly alike in content or strength. This is why recovery is individual as well - what needs to be recovered from varies . This is often especially difficult , but not ever hopeless , for those raised in the cult .

I feel Hubbard knew of and used ALL of the following in taking advantage of his victims minds . He simply  " programmed " them to be push button stimulus response slaves using many mental weaknesses and vulnerabilities but by learning them you can find what to look for and avoid triggering when dealing with Scientologists and exes and even others.

The poster at ESMB known as Lotus shared the following which I feel is very useful :

Top 7 Psychological Defense Mechanisms

In every human being, intrapsychic conflicts are bound to occur, usually because of sexual and aggressive impulses and tension. Usually, (or maybe hopefully), these conflicts are resolved by themselves in a short amount of time; however sometimes this is not the case. Every now and then, our internal conflicts can last for long periods of times, and can potentially cause us great harm. Oftentimes anxiety can wear and tear at us, and should not be underestimated. Fortunately, our body has defense mechanisms to defend us from unpleasant emotions and feelings, such as anxiety. These are 7 of them:

1. Rationalization

Rationalization is something that every human being does, probably on a daily basis. Rationalization is defined as “Creating false but plausible excuses to justify unacceptable behavior.” An example of this would be a student stealing money from a wealthy friend of his, telling himself “Well he is rich, he can afford to lose it.”

2. Identification

Identification is defined as “Bolstering self-esteem by forming an imaginary or real alliance with some person or group.” This is a fairly common method of attempting to forget about ones troubles, happens fairly often, especially in insecure people. A person joining a sports team, fraternity, social clique or even subcultures are all examples of this.

3. Displacement

Displacement is defined as “Diverting emotional feelings (usually anger) from their original source to a substitute target.” This frequently occurs in families, where we often see the father getting mad at the mother. The mother then takes her anger out on her son, the son in turn yells at his little sister, the little sister kicks the dog, and the dog bites the cat. Another example would obviously be a boxer taking out his frustration on a punching bag or an opponent.

4. Projection

Projection is defined as “Attributing one’s own thoughts, feelings, or motives to another.” This characteristic is not uncommon, and we have probably all witnessed it. An angry man might accuse others of being hostile and antagonistic. Another example might be a con-artist might be under the impression that everyone else is trying to con him or her.

5. Regression

Regression is defined as “A reversion to immature patterns of behavior.” There are plenty of examples of this (and we all know a couple we are guilty of). One of the more obvious examples might be a teenager not allowed to go on a trip for spring break, so he or she might throw a temper tantrum and scream and cry at his or her parents. Conversely, a teenager might revert back to infant behavior to receive sympathy from his or her parents.

6. Reaction Formation

Reaction formation is one of the odder defense mechanisms, as it entails behaving completely contrary to how one truly feels. It is defined as “Behaving in a way that is exactly the opposite of one’s true feelings.” We see this all the time in relationships, where “I despise him” becomes “I love him.” Similarly, a boss might give an employee who he is frustrated with a raise.

7. Repression

Repression underlies all the others, and it is possibly the oddest of them all. Repression is defined by “Keeping distressing thoughts and feelings buried in the unconscious.” There has been much controversy over repressed memories, and many court cases as a result of this. A little girl’s memory of being molested when she was a toddler might become a repressed memory. The little girl will completely forget about this experience, until the memory might resurface years later. The trouble is, there have been various accounts of memories resurfacing that have no truth or bearing to them. Repressed memories then are unreliable and oftentimes untrue. Conversely; there have been several cases of repressed memories being accurate; one must simply take an account of a repressed memory with a grain of salt.

Hubbard has his victim rationalize both Scientolgy's many many failures and the actions that are immoral and evil done by oneself and others  to " help " Scientology at the expense of everything else . Hubbard has his victim identify the correctness of Hubbard and his " technology " with their own correctness , intelligence , worth ,status and even immortality . He has victims displace doubts about what they are doing in Scientology into automatic doubts of critics and outsiders . He has many negative emotions displaced to hide the utter failure of Scientology to " handle " these as promised by the " technology " . Hubbard relies on getting projection of negative emotions - particularly intense blind hatred - onto acceptable targets to confuse and control his victims and eradicate critical and independent thought on criticisms as claims . He uses selective regression to trigger magical thinking ( often done by the very young ) to " defend " the faith required in Scientology . That means one thinks like a very small child and accepts illogical " proof " and " explanations " why and how Scientology " works " . He has it conveniently turn on and off like a switch .  Attacking a critic ? Full adult capacity to tear up their character . Need to explain or defend Scientology ? Mind of a very young child who " knows " Scientology is " just right " - with no need for rational proof ! Reaction formation is used so you love staff - who you hate for exploiting you . Or DM for demanding you be a literal slave in the Sea Org or destroy your family or give all your life savings so he can build another giant building etc. etc .  You are tricked progressively to submitting to more and more abuse and exploitation as your hate/love and dread/hope grow . The more you bet on Scientology and lose the more you are desperate for all the efforts and crimes and sacrifices to be redeemed by success that NEVER comes ! Repression is routine in Scientologists . Also defined as denial , it involves burying memories from the conscious mind to protect it from overwhelming dissonance and stress . It is usually developed as a coping mechanism to stress in childhood , in theory . In Scientology you literally can " forget " the failures and proof of Hubbard's flaws and imperfections .
You can deny many unpleasant and contrary things as your conditioned to not doubt ( it is a lower condition ) and never leave as you are "  taught  " that stems from unhandled evil acts .

I hope this will help people  see what manifests in Scientologists and that it is what needs to be learned about by them .  Or you will be just playing a game of trigger and chase phenomena round and round . That is Hubbard's game .  I want to end Hubbard's games and have people free to choose their own .

A Brief Rhetorical Analysis Of Keeping Scientology Working Series 1 : KSW Keeping Slaves Willing


 Hubbard had a Scientologist receive one piece of his doctrine in indoctrination far more than all others . It is repeated over and over and referred to again and again .

It is KSW and it rests on an interconnected series of lies that rest on one big lie to be the absolute undoubtable unquestionable foundation of Scientology. I had an ED at a local org who said " if they make it past KSW they might become Scientologists - if not we don't keep 'em " . And she was right - I did not know why then but think I do now .

The big lie that all the rest rely on is : there is " workable " I.E  beneficial , reliable , scientific methodology that can consistently produce good and even miraculous results in the subject called Scientology . That is the lie . It was NEVER and will NEVER be true , at all , EVER not even a little .  But the lie is the heart of the fraud and con . You have to at first find it remotely possible - even a tiny bit . Then through repetition and confusion you are nudged over and over to buy into it .

In the primary piece of Scientology doctrine Hubbard used many many tricks and fallacies to both imply and state his authority and hypnosis and mind control as well .

He made a group of implants specifically intedended to stack , or combine rhetorical methods and results ,  they are for the authority for Hubbard and tying it to the elite status Scientologists gain by recognizing and submitting to Hubbard - the two ideas are bound to each other in a large circular argument where each reinforces and props up the other . The clever thing about this is that attacks , criticism or doubts about Hubbard or his " technology " quickly become seen and emotionally felt as personal attacks on the competence and pride of individual Scientologists . This is entirely intentional .

I actually believe his implication and statements on this even exceed the ad hominem implant group with which it intersects as both bolster one another often .
I will here include some quotes from THE centerpiece of ALL Scientology doctrine - many consider the dividing line between Scientology and other practices to be IF a person or group recognizes this reference as valid and attempts to follow it or if they consider it expendable or as having exceptions or lacking importance :

Note in my description I use the following terms as methods from hypnosis or mind control : confusion , anxiety , attention , overwhelm , induce , direct attention , ambiguous language , focus , misdirect and repetition .

Keeping Scientology Working selected quotes
1) We have some time since passed the point of achieving uniformly workable technology.

  2) The only thing now is getting the technology applied.

3)If you can get the technology applied, you can deliver what's promised.

4) Getting the correct technology applied consists of:

5)One:Having the correct technology.
6)Two:Knowing the technology.
7)Three:]Knowing it is correct.
8)Four:Teaching correctly the correct technology.
9)Five:]Applying the technology.
10)Six:Seeing that the technology is correctly applied.
11)Seven:Hammering out of existence incorrect technology.
[12)Eight:]Knocking out incorrect applications.
13)Nine:Closing the door on any possibility of incorrect technology.
14)Ten:Closing the door on incorrect application.
15)One above has been done.

  • 16)Two has been achieved by many.
  • 17)Three is achieved by the individual applying the correct technology in a proper manner and observing that it works that way.
  • 18)Four is being done daily successfully in most parts of the world.
  • 19)Five is consistently accomplished daily.
  • 20)Six is achieved by Instructors and Supervisors consistently.
  • 21)Seven is done by a few but is a weak point.
  • 22)Eight is not worked on hard enough.
  • 23)Nine is impeded by the "reasonable" attitude of the not-quite-bright.
  • 24)Ten is seldom done with enough ferocity.
  • 25)Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten are the only places Scientology can bog down in any area.

26) The reasons for this are not hard to find. (a) A weak certainty that it works in Three above can lead to weakness in Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. (b) Further, the not-too-bright have a bad point on the button Self-Importance. (c) The lower the IQ, the more the individual is shut off from the fruits of observation. (d) The service facs of people make them defend themselves against anything they confront, good or bad, and seek to make it wrong. (e) The bank seeks to knock out the good and perpetuate the bad.

27) Thus, we as Scientologists and as an organization must be very alert to Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten.

28)only so long as it does not seek to alter basic principles and successful applications.

29) We will not speculate here on why this was so or how I came to rise above the bank.

30)Similar examples exist in instruction and these are all the more deadly as every time instruction in correct technology is flubbed, then the resulting error, uncorrected in the auditor, is perpetuated on every pc that auditor audits thereafter. So Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten are even more important in a course than in supervision of cases.

31) Squirreling (going off into weird practices or altering Scientology) only comes about from noncomprehension. Usually the noncomprehension is not of Scientology but some earlier contact with an offbeat humanoid practice which in its turn was not understood.

32)With what we know now, there is no student we enroll who cannot be properly trained.

33)The proper instruction attitude is "You're here so you're a Scientologist. Now we're going to make you into an expert auditor no matter what happens, We'd rather have you dead than incapable." end quote

Now I numbered the selected quotes to make referring back easier for the reader and so I would not be constantly repeating the quotes .

The first observation I have is that there are a lot of pieces of info that refer back to each other in a CONFUSING DISJOINTED WAY - intentionally AS A VARIATION OF confusion AND a fallacy in their own right .

From Wikipedia :Proof by verbosity (argumentum verbosium, proof by intimidation) – submission of others to an argument too complex and verbose to reasonably deal with in all its intimate details.

See , Hub presented a ridiculously complex and long PL with tons of points that in a deliberately confusing way present tons of points that are referred to and back to with ambiguous language so you try to remember what all the points are and how what is said in one place relates back to something presented in a giant group of points and - it is all a confused mess !

But the sheer size of it IMPLIES a body of knowledge well organized and thoroughly understood by an AUTHORITY who must have made it ! Never mind that there is no such body of knowledge - the PRESENTATION is where your attention goes NOT validation . The monolith is simply too big to understand easily and so implies wisdom without EVER demonstrating it .

Line one is intentionally written in a confusing style to distract your mind off it's truthfulness or lack thereof as you FOCUS your misdirected mind on the VERY unusual use of " since " to mean " earlier " instead of its usual meaning of " due to or from that point on or from which point in TIME ".

See , many hypnotists use statements with ambiguous or paradoxical wordings regarding time to generate slight cognitive dissonance and in the moment of blankness accompanying the dissonance - swoop in and direct attention . THIS is what Hub was really doing when he pretended you have an MU ! Jon Atack informed me about the dissonance at the exact moment of blankness and I - upon reflection and investigation of cognitive dissonance - agree fully .

Hub makes you confused with his odd , unclear and eccentric word choices - which further implies his authority as a master of language ! THIS is what he was doing with all those odd ways to say things and referring to things with two almost identical terms - so YOU would wonder why he said both characteristics AND qualities or used an unusual idiom like first and foremost - making you clear foremost and to pass a checkout LEARN foremost is a synonym for first and that the redundant use is best explained as either having no additional meaning or as an idiom it focuses attention slightly more on the concept of both words but in either case the wording CONFUSES your mind as you try to find why he uses more words than are needed over and over - you think the problem is YOU or your vocabulary or not really getting the deep meaning in his " wise words ". In any of the cases above you are confused , gain anxiety about this ( which as an " MU phenomenon " makes you focus more on words and not ideas ), and have the constant implication Hub knows something just out of reach .

In point 26 Hub IMPLIES that he is not among the not too bright and that he has a high IQ by speaking in a round about way where others with flaws he implies he does not have have their errors listed, also implying immunity to those for himself .

Points 1 , 3 , 5 and 15 ALL refer to one another in a circular argument mixed in with the other points to generate confusion sorting them out - further implying his brilliance in keeping them straight and tying up the attention of his victim - even writing about the method is confusing and I KNOW what he is doing !

The term " Technology " is initially confusing as one tries to sort out " just what the heck is this technology ? " . It is not a material science like engineering or something familiar . This ambiguous term that just refers to Scientology and Scientology is defined as the technology - which gives a hidden circular argument that there is SCIENTIFIC validated method here - with no real proof or clear explanation . So that further confuses a person . At some point a person may accept that there actually is a technology - just to understand the rest of the reference better ! Oopsies !

Lines 4 through 14 refer to each other in very slightly different ways - to confuse and imlpy through complexity, ambiguity and repetition that there is SOMETHING genuine to this " technology " !

Points 15 through 25 refer WAY back in a disorganized incoherent way to 5 through 14 and this is intentional as if you where to rewrite it with 15 linked to 5 , 16 to 6 , 17 to 7 , 18 to 8 , 19 to 9 , 20 to 10 , 21 to 11 , 22 to 12 , 23 to 13 , 24 to 14 and 25 as a separate clearer sentence or even short paragraph the constant keeping track of and referring back to ideas would not DIVIDE the attention to the edge of madness - further reducing the critical factor by MISDIRECTION . The ideas are actually simpler than what is written here IF better organized .

Having the correct technology has been done.

Knowing the technology has been achieved by many.

Knowing it is correct and that is achieved by the individual applying the correct technology in a proper manner and observing that it works that way.

Teaching correctly the correct technology and it is being done daily successfully in most parts of the world.

Applying the technology which is consistently accomplished daily.

Seeing that the technology is correctly applied which is achieved by Instructors and Supervisors consistently.

Hammering out of existence incorrect technology which is done by a few but is a weak point.

Knocking out incorrect applications is not worked on hard enough.

Closing the door on any possibility of incorrect technology is impeded by the "reasonable" attitude of the not-quite-bright.

Closing the door on incorrect application is seldom done with enough ferocity.

Now if this was there it would be a LOT clearer and 25 should really be a little paragraph set off and completely redone for clarity as well . Now , if stated THIS way the constant overuse of the term technology with no definition becomes abundantly clear - it is referred to over and over !

It is also clear that there are MANY claims asserted with NO PROOF EVER !!!!
The other way sorting out the vague garbage is ALL you are even trying to do - NOT decide if you accept or believe ANY of it .

Point 23 redefines " reasonable " as a BAD thing , with NO explanation for free loaded language AND acceptance of the ideas within the new language ! Point 23 has the not-quite-bright and point 26 the not-too-bright - to further confuse , as why choose such similar wording except to induce confusion ?

Point 26 should be rewritten as several sentences and made much clearer but it is also intended to divide attention and further confuse - not inform . Point 27 further divides attention .

Point 29 directs your imagination to speculate on how Hubbard in some mysterious way overcame the bank and why this was - so you ASSUME he DID overcome the bank AND that it EVEN exists ! It functions like saying do not think of a pink elephant - you automatically think of it in hearing it !

And he as an expert hypnotist KNEW you would be distracted by wondering why and how he could do this . Points 30 , 32 and 33 ALL assert (largely through very slight variation to confuse ) and repetition that Scientology works - again with no proof !

Point 31 says a lot in one place - that by calling going off into weird practices squirreling it IMPLIES Scientology is NOT weird - making it orthodox in some undefined way .

It also says this comes about from noncomprehension - linking this to the MU doctrine AND misdirecting attention off the fact that noncomprehension can be from incredulity , finding contradictions , being confused by things that do not add up - all triggers for CRITICAL analysis and inquiry ! You know like in normal pre-Scientology life .
It also further combines tricks as it claims noncomprehension is not from Scientology ( discouraging close examination ) but earlier off beat humanoid practices .

Okay this is to IMPLY earlier practices existed and may effect people now - meaning it links to the whole track doctrine as " proof " and has the corollary that if the earlier practices are offbeat THEN it follows that Scientology is NOT offbeat - with no proof .

And by saying the earlier practice "in its turn " is a vague way to imply all these earlier practices ( and earlier civilizations ) and tie up your mind wondering what and when it was and not notice that he says the practice was NOT UNDERSTOOD as a cause of noncomprehension . That has a couple more ideas too - the idea noncomprehension comes from not understood things - which is a synonym for misunderstood and that this can be linked to earlier similar things a vital and unproven Scientology doctrine .

Point 33 implies that a Scientologist is CAPABLE and being one is automatic by being here and death is preferable to not being a Scientologist - ALL strong extreme unproven claims mashed together so the overwhelmed confused student just hypnotically intakes and does not evaluate ANY of the claims for authenticity or desirability ! See , he makes many , many claims here almost all of which are NOT to be inspected or questioned or even perceived really - just taken in and followed .

I have ONLY taken a small sample from one reference - this entire PL is a huge logical fallacy designed to stir emotion , wonder , confusion , an air of expertise and certainty that there is a real subject here and Hubbard MUST be the authority on it and only true originator ( asserting the single source myth with no proof ) and make you buy and never question many other ideas and bolster lies from other doctrine linking them in your mind .It is intended to through repetition and confusion gain dominance and install the double bind ( or circle of lies )

This is my first quickie off the cuff analysis of KSW - Keeping Slaves Willing .

I hope it can help show many claims are asserted with no shred of proof and ideas accepted without direct examination as a requirement to even participate in Scientology .

This trend only expands over time .

There are many , many other places Hub pretends expertise and authority - all without merit . I started with this as IT hangs up exes often for decades in confusion - as it was intended to . Simply put the confusion is a kind of trance state that can impair thinking and happiness covertly for life if unhandled .

There are many of these states that a Scientologist accumulates and pile up , even moving from one to another seemlessly after they replace normal thought and identity enough . Some people cancel a few trances or many but not all and so are " weird " years after leaving Scientology or still enthralled or fascinated by parts of it even if knowing Hub lied or the tech fails and the group is a criminal cult .

I am sorry I am very sure that is how it works - I wish just figuring out he lied or there are no OTs or the SO and orgs are running a fraud would magically make us wake up but for many that is simply not true . I do plan to soon write another thread entirely on trance states so people can better understand what happens to their mind and what Scientology does to it .

But I hope this served both as an example of Hub's unsubstantiated claims of authority and the utter fraud and deception KSW was always intended to serve as . It is a circular argument : the tech works this way and only this way because Hub as the top expert knows it and he is the top expert because it works but neither is ever proven at all !

Enjoy sharing this with everyone especially indies and under the radar folks .
