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 .

Brainwashing: Standard Tech In Scientology



Several days ago Lori Hodgson was harassed by someone from the Scientology cult. I copied and examined the comments by Vistaril at the Underground Bunker on this. I realized that the brainwashing techniques of Scientology which Vistaril quoted Ron Hubbard on described as introversion were also the exact same method that was used on me in an attempt to drive me to madness or death.

I had spent hundreds of hours trying to understand exactly what had been done and how. I believe the same method has been used on Bob Minton and many others over the years. I will quote Vistaril and some Hubbard references that relate to his methods. I had written about my experience in A Million Years In Hell but feel the exact methods used sheds new light on what Scientology attempted to do to me and has done to ruin utterly several others.

Stay strong, Lori!
That comment from Scientology is a particularly nasty one. It is a classic use of KSW Standard L Ron Hubbard Scientology "Shattering Suppression" Tech™ in that it is a full-on attempt to "introvert". Note the wording . . .

(below is the comment from a Scientology operative intended to introvert Lori Hodgson )
YOU won’t, Lori. Every action I have seen YOU doing in the past years has further alienated YOUR kids fromYOU. I would think YOU know that but YOU do it anyway. But maybe YOU don’t see it. So I am telling YOU. YOU can’t force them to love YOU again.

. . . is designed to focus the subject's attention in on themselves. It also employs the use of "Enemy Tactics" in its attempt to stir up "aberrative" wog HE&R concepts like love and attachment to family. And then there's the threat aspect as pointed out below with Cash Bolt's connection to weapons. Cruel, nasty, critical, intimidating and vindictive, just as L Ron Hubbard would have liked it. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if the comment was the work of David Miscavige himself. It takes a special kind of arsehole to come up with that sort of mind fuckery.

From an academic point of view, it is interesting to show just how duplicitous L Ron Hubbard was in his advocacy of such practises. Of all the words used to describe Scientology, perhaps the one which Scientologists rail against most is "brainwashing". But look how the term is defined in L Ron Hubbard's Administrative Dictionary . . .

BRAINWASHING, 1. brainwashing is a very simple mechanism. One gets a person to agree that something might be a certain way and then drives him by introverting him and through self-criticism to the possibility that it is that way. Only then does a man believe that the erroneous fact was a truth . . .

. . . now, contrast and compare L Ron Hubbard's "Shattering Supression" Tech™. One will find it is littered with instructions on how to introvert people and organizations. A stark example can be found in L Ron Hubbard's HCO Policy Letter of 15 August 1960 Dept. Of Government Affairs . . .

. . . The goal of the Department is to bring the government and hostile philosophies or societies into a state of complete compliance with the goals of Scientology. This is done by high level ability to control and in its absence by low level ability to overwhelm. Introvert such agencies. Control such agencies. Scientology is the only game on Earth where everybody wins. There is no overt in bringing good order . . .

. . . that HCOPL is compulsory reading for all Scientologists involved in Scientology's public relations and "special affairs". Yet how many Scientologists reading it realise that what L Ron Hubbard is telling them to do is to apply what he also defines as "brainwashing"? Not only that, L Ron Hubbard tells his Scientologists that applying such practices against people and organizations, regardless of the effects on individuals and their families, is not a sin (overt). Watta guy. Note also, that the general practice of Scientology is all about control and overwhelming a person and getting them so introverted they come to believe material which is demonstrably false - from the existence of Engrams right through to Xenu.

Perhaps if Lori was an isolated Scientologist stuck in L Ron Hubbard's weirdo world such tech may have an effect. But, in this particular case, the attempt is entirely futile. Well, perhaps not "entirely" because there will be an effect, but it will be the exact opposite of what was intended. First of all, Lori knows all about these pernicious Scientology teachings and can recognize them from a mile off. Also, she has far too much love and support around her for them to have any effect other than to reinforce the need to expose Scientology and make more strenuous efforts to reach out to her children.
EDIT: Typos, grammar, wording. Usual end quote by Vistaril.

Here's some more from Hubbard on this:

Quotes from L Ron Hubbard on the Confusion Technique:
Now, if it comes to a pass where it's very important whether or not this person acts or inacts as you wish, in interpersonal relations one of the dirtier tricks is to hang the person up on a maybe and create a confusion. And then create the confusion to the degree that your decision actually is implanted hypnotically.
The way you do this is very simple. When the person advances an argument against your decision, you never confront his argument but confront the premise on which his argument is based. That is the rule. He says, "But my professor always said that water boiled at 212 degrees."
You say, "Your professor of what?"
"My professor of physics."
"What school? How did he know?" Completely off track! You're no longer arguing about whether or not water boils at 212 degrees, but you're arguing about professors. And he will become very annoyed, but he won't know quite what he is annoyed about. You can do this so adroitly and so artfully that you can actually produce a confusion of the depth of hypnosis. The person simply goes down tone scale to a point where they're not sure of their own name.
And at that point you say, "Now, you do agree to go out and draw the water out of the well, don't you?"
"Yes-anything!" And he'll go out and draw the water out of the well.
[End Quote]
Ron Hubbard Lecture, 20 May 1952 "Decision."

Also, even earlier, in 1950:
One error, however, must be remarked upon. The examination system employed is not much different from a certain hypnotic technique. One induces a state of confusion in the subject by raising his anxieties of what may happen if he does not pass. One then "teaches" at a mind which is anxious and confused. That mind does not then rationalize, it merely records and makes a pattern. If the pattern is sufficiently strong to be regurgitated verbatim on an examination paper, the student is then given a good grade and passed.
[End Quote]
. Ron Hubbard lecture 29 August 1950, "Educational Dianetics."
He also knew that when one is confused they can feel relief ( i.e. brighter TEMPORARILY ) when they get an " answer " , even if it doesn't address the confusion!

“A confusion can be defined as any set of factors or circumstances which do not seem to have any immediate solution. More broadly, a confusion is random motion.”
“Until one selects one datum, one factor, one particular in a confusion of particles, the confusion continues. The one thing selected and used becomes the stable datum for the remainder.
“Any body of knowledge, more particularly and exactly, is built from one datum. That is its stable datum. Invalidate it and the entire body of knowledge falls apart. A stable datum does not have to be the correct one. It is simply the one that keeps things from being in a confusion and on which others are aligned.” – . Ron Hubbard [ref]

“Any time anybody gets enough altitude he can be called a hypnotic operator, and what he says will act as hypnotic suggestion. Hypnotism is a difference in levels of altitude…if the operator can heighten his own altitude with regard to the subject…he doesn’t have to put the subject to sleep. What he says will still react as a hypnotic suggestion….With parity, such as occurs between acquaintances, friends, fellow students and so on, there is no hypnotic suggestion” (Education and Dianetics, 11 November 1950, Research and Discovery, volume 4).
