Someone at ESMB , a poster named Free Being Me brought up the idea of Hubbard hiding things in plain sight and they were exactly right .That technique is called the offensive defensive technique and is used by con-men and pathological liars consistently throughout recorded history. Hubbard was of course both .
Basically you warn someone that others can be evil , dishonest , run cons , scams , etc. and then you do what you just warned them about ! It is so audacious as to inspire confusion making it a simple variation on the confusion technique from conversational hypnosis ! It is the old time football coach saying to not go against the percentages , but if you do - go so far against them nobody would ever suspect it !
In football it means you almost never run bizarre , risky trick plays but when desperate or your opponent is off his guard ( because they are so unlikely )
you successfully run those plays in only that situation !Another version is the " investment adviser "an NFL player meets with a fancy office and nice suit who warns " you have to do your due diligence and check out who you give your money " , so seriously and then he steals the player's money ! He tricked him by warning him ! Warning about a crime makes people immediately more suspicious of others and less of the person warning them often, that is the basis of this technique !
Hubbard does the same thing pathologically because he is a pathological liar. It is irresistible to him to almost tell the truth to fool people and love getting away with it !
It is hardwired into his personality. He did this thousands of times in the doctrine of Dianetics and Scientology. Some examples : warning against hypnotists in DMSMH and SOS , and then incorporating covert hypnotism in almost everything he used. He warned against slavery from many sources and he enslaved. He said the blackness of cases was due to LIES !! of oneself and others !Well , when you understand that you are running hallucinatory false past life incidents - that he fools you into believing -you realize the blackness is from HIS LIES! The blackness and the case are both lies !
He said we've only had one real SP in all the years of Scientology, and compared to him none of the others were real , well guess what - he was BRAGGING about himself being the real SP and fooling YOU!! I could go on for hours with this idea ; the reason is not to brag . I was fooled for 25 years , I have nothing to brag about.
The reason to tell you guys and keep explaining is to help you see through the lies ; I have a lot of experience with Scientology , particularly study tech and have made a lot of effort to take it analyze it and see how it works. This is an ongoing , developing study with new material emerging constantly but the basic ideas keep proving accurate and for me helpful in removing the effects of Scientology from my own thinking.
There are patterns to Hubbard's personality and technology , and underlying techniques that he used over and over . If you have significant experience with Scientology and a good grounding in who and what he was and what some of those techniques are, you can quickly see many ways that he fools , changes , harms and enslaves people with an exacting precision. I want many exes and Scientologists , and even never-ins to learn to see what is there and be free from the past and more prepared for the future. Some people see governments now as using similar technologies , some people don't . I am certain someone will use these technologies in the future , probably under another name if the human race survives the coming decades and centuries. It will seem irresistible to some to enslave covertly so the slave thanks you - the slavemaster.
I would far prefer that future generations understood and could resist Miscavology or whatever name this shit comes back as. The threat of a totalitarian government using this on an uneducated , unsuspecting " obedient " population is far scarier than everything Hubbard and Scientology have wrought so far. I will keep writing and compiling more and more info and will probably compile books from my notes to make it easier to read but a hell of a lot more people have to care about this for it to make any dent .That the current cult is shrinking won't stop the " right " kind of person from loving and extensively studying this technology the first chance they get.
Some psychos ( like Hubbard ) are deeply gratified at the prospect of enslaving , and even if facing stiff obstacles and the possibility of imprisonment will still pursue their chance. Some men are simply driven by desire to dominate and destroy other people .
I'm not talking about the fictional SP , I'm talking about real nut-jobs as described in Eric Hoffer's book True Believer.
