Introuduction

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 .

Having Your Own Ideas In Scientology

 Image result for freedom is slavery

 While I was on the EPF in the Excalibur building in NYC in the early 90s I noticed a culture of complete obedience and compliance to authority in the Sea Org . The students all would answer the roll call "aye" every time and I had gotten used to saying "here" from going to an academy in a class V org . I answered "here" and the other students looked at me like I had just stabbed a baby - EVERY time . I thought it was odd that we set aside all freedom to safeguard freedom .

I tried something else too . I arranged to have a conversation with another student where a sup could hear us on purpose and worked in saying very loudly and clearly that "it is okay to disagree and have your own ideas on some things " . The sup freaked out looked super serious , grim and determined and came over and asked what was going on . I saw the other student run away , but he played his part for me ( without knowing it ) and I told the sup it was okay to have different ideas .

He looked more furious and I calmly explained how we could have different ideas . I then hit him with the kicker - a logical example . I said he could like vanilla ice cream and I could like chocolate and it would be okay .

The sup looked ready to blast me- then he was stunned and confused . He froze and kept going over what I said and the Scientology references he USUALLY directs people to when they are not obedient and submissive and could not figure out HOW to tell me to clear a word or read KSW or ...what to do.

His confidence shattered and he stood for a minute that felt like forever . He finally muttered " well , that doesn't matter" and uncomfortably looked down and with extreme cognitive dissonance in a hazy fog walked away . He was befuddled on even where to walk in the course-room he had for years .
He was so used to the idea that people are not allowed to have ANY of their own ideas that he could not understand any ideas on anything being allowed other than Hubbard's .

Following is a group of quotes on having your own ideas that eventually becomes a total denial of them :
People have following the route mixed up with "the right to have their own ideas."
Scientology, exactly and correctly followed, takes the person up and out of the mess.
So put the feet of students and preclears on that route. Don't let them off of it no
matter how fascinating the side roads seem to them. And move them on up and out.
Squirreling is today destructive of a workable system.

Don't let your party down. By whatever means, keep them on the route. And they'll be free. If you don't, they won't. HCO POLICY LETTER OF 14 FEBRUARY 1965 SAFEGUARDING TECHNOLOGY

    This posting is a prime example of logic defeating the lock-step thought process that $cientology enforces.

    You had the nerve to do something different, and they couldn't understand it. It wasn't in their playbook.

    $cientology depends on rote learning, and lock-step compliance, so when someone steps off their well worn track, unless they can find scripture to quote, they're lost. You cited a great example.

    That's one of the reasons the internet and the exposure of their ideas that LRH wanted to keep secret are causing them to fall apart. Since LRH didn't anticipate the internet, or cable television, they only have their old methods to counteract the release of all of the information they tried to hold back. The only place they really have secrecy is within the membership.

    They're also still depending on celebrities, like Tom Cruise for recruitment. Unfortunately for $cientology and Cruise, Cruise was the trigger for both the rise of Anonymous and the universal derision for $cientology by his interview with Matt Lauer.

    Also, since Going Clear called Cruise and John Travolta out, they've not been talking about their links to $cientology, and have been avoiding the press or association with $cientology. I believe the rumors of TC leaving $cientology were planted to divert attention from his actual stance.

    $cientology has lived by celebrities, and they're dying by them.

    Since $cientology creates its own bubble that $cientologists learn to live inside, they have little or no concept of the idea that their ways of thought and their actions, when exposed to the rest of the world, bring derision.

    1. Thanks . I certainly hope the internet burns Scientology to the ground . That will free the slaves and end the abuses and allow families to reconnect.
