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 .

Why Lying And Murder Are Justified In Scientology Part 1

Image result for Lying  in ScientologyImage result for Lying  in Scientology

To understand the excuses Hubbard laid out for the tragi-comic policies  he issued you need to, in my opinion, understand some basic Scientology doctrine. In the Way To Happiness Hubbard said not to tell HARMFUL lies, just as he in policy encouraged acceptable truths.

“Do not tell harmful lies.”

Ron Hubbard, The Way to Happiness”

"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, "Off the Time Track," lecture of June 1952, excerpted in JOURNAL OF SCIENTOLOGY
issue 18-G, reprinted in TECHNICAL VOLUMES OF DIANETICS & SCIENTOLOGY, vol. 1, p. 418

Purpose: To train the student to give a false statement with good TR-1. To train the student to outflow false data effectively. … The student should be coached on a gradient until he/she can lie facilely.”
Ron Hubbard, Intelligence Specialist Training Routine—Lying (TR-L)

“Handling truth is a touchy business also. You don’t have to tell everything you know — that would jam the comm line too. Tell an acceptable truth. … So PR becomes the technique of communicating an acceptable truth — and which will attain the desirable result.”
Ron Hubbard, HCOPL 13 August 1970 Issue II PR Series 2, in the Volunteer Minister’s Handbook

“Purpose: To train a PRO to give a ‘no answer’ to questions he has no wish to answer directly. …The trick is to appear to answer the question by giving generalized statements in simple terms so that the reporter doesn’t realize his question hasn’t been answered. … “Purpose: To train a PRO to be able to establish Ethics presence over an SP reporter if the occasion arises, by such things as shouting, banging, pointing, swearing. To do this completely causatively until the poor reporter is ‘caved in’. … “Purpose: To train the PRO to handle an SP reporter by word alone without the use of force as in (a). He uses the word as a rapier and plunges it at the reporter, so that the reporter introverts and drops the question.”
Ron Hubbard, HCOB 10 December 1969,Training Routines”

“Now you say you have to be absolutely truthful. Sincerity is the main thing, and truthfulness is the main thing and don’t lie to anybody …and you’ll get ahead. Brother you sure will. You’ll get ahead right on that cycle of action, right toward zero! It’s a trap not being able to prevaricate … This makes life more colorful!”
Ron Hubbard, Philadelphia Doctorate Course, lecture “How to Talk to friends about Scientology.”

The key to focus in on is HARMFUL in the above quote. Who can be harmed without penalty in Scientology ? Who has no rights whatsoever and is to be destroyed ?

Hubbard goes on to say "Do not murder" but he exactly defines murder.

"There is a considerable difference between these two words “kill” and “murder.” A prohibition against all killing would rule out self-defense; it would tend to make it illegal to handle a serpent coiling to strike the baby; it would put a race on a diet of vegetables. I am sure you can see many illustrations of the difficulties raised by a prohibition against all killing.“Murder” is another thing entirely. By definition it means, “The unlawful killing of one (or more) human being by another, especially with malice aforethought.” Ron Hubbard WTH

He specifically ONLY discourages illegal killing.

He goes on to say "Do not harm a person of good will". What decides good will ? Who qualifies and how should you treat people who are not of good will ?

"The violent criminal, the propagandist, the sensation-seeking media all tend to distract one’s attention from the solid, everyday fact that the society would not run at all were it not for the individuals of good will."

Ron Hubbard WTH

So, he decided the media are not of good will, the "propagandist" . Let's look closer at that. ANYONE with ANY message is technically a propagandist. It does not ONLY mean liars and manipulative evil people . That is a modern slant on it but a Democrat may see a Republican as a propagandist and vice versa and a dissident may see BOTH Republicans and Democrats as propagandists within a corrupt system of institutional evil, propping it up. Who's right ? Well, they ALL are - the others ALL try to persuade people , honestly or not, so propagandist can be applied to ANYONE who communicates at all ever.

So, what decides who is of good will or not ? What lies are harmful ? And ultimately what is legal ? Hubbard answered it all - HIM.

Regarding obeying the law
"Somebody some day will say ‘this is illegal.’ By then be sure the orgs [Scientology organizations] say what is legal or not."
. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 4 January 1966, "LRH Relationship to Orgs"

Regarding determining who should be considered a person of good will that deserves rights and to not have killing them classified as murder
"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 ANYONE who is critical is labeled a criminal and low tone , meaning a suppressive person below 2.0 on his tone scale. How merciful is Hubbard toward people that try Scientology but just don't conform or fit in ?

"When somebody enrolls, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the universe - never permit an ‘open-minded’ approach... If they enrolled, they’re aboard, and if they’re aboard they’re here on the same terms as the rest of us -win or die in the attempt. Never let them be half minded about being Scientologists... When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that wandering doubt in her eye into a fixed, dedicated glare… The proper instruction attitude is, ‘We'd rather have you dead than incapable.’"
Ron Hubbard, KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING, 7 February 1965, reissued 27 August 1980

"ENEMY SP Order. 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."
Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 18 October 1967
[SP = Suppressive Person a.k.a.critic of Scientology]

"The practice of declaring people FAIR GAME will cease. FAIR GAME may not appear on any Ethics Order. It causes bad public relations. This P/L does not cancel any policy on the treatment or handling of an SP."
Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 21 October 1968, "Cancellation of Fair Game"

"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

"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 OFSURVIVAL, 1989 Ed., p. 145 [The "Tone Scale" is Scientology’s measure of mental and spiritual health.]

"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

So, within Hubbard's framework Scientology should decide what is legal, Scientology can remove quietly and without sorrow anyone that criticizes it , or Hubbard. Scientology can lie at anytime to control people and his enemies have no rights whatsoever. So, of course as they have no rights and asking for a refund is seen as suppressive, they have no rights to receive any refund . But it is fair in Scientology to deny rights to and lie to a person with no rights ! Simple really.

And remember what he said regarding Scientology's religious status.

" not a religion."
Ron Hubbard, CREATION OF HUMAN ABILITY, 1954, p. 251

And remember the face he at first shows Scientologists, in the beginning.

"There is no more ethical group on this planet than ourselves."
Ron Hubbard, KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING. 7 February 1965, reissued 27 August 1980

"Our organizations are friendly. They are only here to help you."
  Ron Hubbard, "Dianetic Contract" 23 May 1969

"Somebody some day will say ‘this is illegal.’ By then be sure the orgs [Scientology organizations] say what is legal or not."
- Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 4 January 1966, "LRH Relationship to Orgs"
