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 .

Hubbard's Legacy of Double Think

Scientologists practice Hubbard's legacy of double think. In his twisted reversal of meaning ethical means both ethical and with no ethics whatsoever simultaneously. So, for a Scientologist to say anyone is ethical really means nothing. It means the Scientologist has a motive to say it and that is all.

They are so intellectually dishonest and blind to inconsistency and contradiction from the loaded language and have independent, critical, linear and rational thinking annihilated and obliterated by auditing and indoctrination that their decisions are nearly entirely compromised. Hubbard did this entirely intentionally.
In totalism and cults a person's entire or nearly entire decision making is controlled by another or a group. Hubbard studied Lifton's work on thought reform and Orwell's on language and used their warnings as blueprints.

He sought by controlling thought, emotion and behavior to entirely replace a victim's mind and identity with a loving , obedient , unquestionably certain and zealously fanatical mental pseudo clone of Hubbard - a slave and completely beaten down victim of trauma and abuse.Like a battered wife or sexually abused child ruled by hopeless submission in anxiety and overwhelmed by an unsafe and unconquerable omnipresent threat .Hubbard wanted his victims tied to him by the trauma he inflicted until death .

In Scientology double think OT simultaneously means godlike perfection and no improvement whatsoever - with the contradiction ( and subsequent cognitive dissonance) hidden from the conscious mind via trance logic and the accompanying denial, dissociation, age regression and projection used to squelch doubt and mental discomfort .Scientology 101

When critics point this out we get the dissonance brutally projected onto us by petulant and belligerent Scientologists who instinctively protect the false confident self to avoid unpleasant buried conflict . Always understand Scientologists simultaneously hold multiple meanings for terms and use the one that at any moment asserts their "rightness" more .Simple right ?

Really the double think is achieved by the OT levels, often earlier .I had it by two months within the cult .  .Orwell understood that a person can be so mixed up on a concept that they both know it as one way and the opposite and shift back and forth between each one without seeing the contradiction consciously .Hubbard studied this and gradually induces it more and more as his slaves progress in the Scientology thought reform program . His shifting loaded language is specifically designed for this . As one progresses concepts like "clear" , "OT" , "compassion"and "ethical" shift from.having meaning to meaning anything supporting Scientology . The submission and godlike reverence for Hubbard supplant all reason and guide all thoughts , emotions and behavior regarding Scientology . Totalism in action . The study tech indoctrination system is specifically designed to help facilitate this by itself reframing thought and making blind acceptance of Hubbard doctrine the norm . That aspect is covered in Insidious Enslavement : Study Technology .

I hope this brief post helps to shed some more light on how this works .
