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 .

Marty Rathbun - Later Day Ron Hubbard ?

I found when Jon Atack explains things like the various policies and discoveries Hubbard claimed to find for ethics and behavior along with the events that happened when Hubbard came up with those policies it becomes clear how they were part of the con and control Hubbard used. While in Scientology I had no context against which to judge anything except the doctrine Hubbard himself presented.

It's kind of like asking lots of people who are in the top one percent or top one tenth of one percent financially to discuss American capitalism. They have very strange and unrealistic ideas quite often. They think if you work hard and succeed and aren't recklessly irresponsible with your wealth you will do great.

Actually, almost everyone we see on mainstream media and news fits that description. TV hosts often make several million dollars a year, stars often make tens of thousands of dollars per episode for even modest shows, sports stars at the top often make hundreds of thousands per week and business owners often make millions or billions per year.

They live an entirely different life than the bottom ninety nine percent. It's similar seeing Hubbard's doctrine with no criticism. It's unreal and not honest.

If the media dared to interview a group of people from every section of the economy and every racial group routinely the portrayal of life would be profoundly different. I have seen independent journalists report on how other countries have people that report routinely on labor and poverty in their countries. Very unlikely in America.

Similarly Hubbard didn't report on failures of his methods usually, unless it was to say "what I sold you before didn't work, BUT I figured out why and NOW have it licked ! Buy my newest stuff and all your problems are solved !" Like how in tapes from the fifties and sixties each year he would announce having solved the problem of clearing with of course a new series of auditing actions that you need to pay to learn as an auditor and pay to have done as a preclear.

That's like a politician today saying racial discrimination doesn't exist under them or only exists because their opposition holds power. Pure lies. But without context you might believe it.

Hubbard used scapegoating, personal attacks, dehumanizing and lumping together enemies in broad categories all the way back in 1951 in Science of Survival with his fictional tone scale to accompany his horror story called the reactive mind. He brilliantly could just say anything was abberated and that alone is enough to label it crazy and irrational and his idea correct and sane.

Like Hubbard Marty reacts to his critics, but I can see what his critics say too and in real time.
