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 .

Scientology David Miscavige's Massive Shrinkage Problem

It seems despite GAT I and II and the ideal org scam and all his super powers David Miscavige still has a massive shrinkage problem. No man likes to admit he can't measure up but the Scientology cult leader clearly can't get up or keep up certain measurable results.
No matter how many feat of buildings he attains for packaging and how nice the facades are it's what he's packing inside that really counts and what he does with it. And there he has failed to man up.
The puny, even diminutive, nature of Scientology is obvious if you look at each individual area and the struggle they have to go through to get any new Scientologists made or retained, the very tiny percentage of people that are Scientologists and the tendency of ex Scientologists to never return once they begin learning the truth about the cult, David Miscavige and of course Hubbard himself.
The best news about Scientology may be the lack of results it has in persuading most people. Most people don't get recruited into Scientology and Hubbard never figured out how to overcome the high rejection rate his cons faced.
The con had the peculiar feature of not persuading people in general but on some of the people it did persuade it would be extraordinarily effective in influencing them. It affected their memories, beliefs, imaginations, loyalties, emotions, core identities and behavior. It got people to set aside their skepticism, judgment and common sense. It got them to believe in mystical experiences and abilities that claim to provide demonstrable abilities like telekinesis, telepathy, precognition, perfect memory, perfect health, reflexes and stable exteriorization with full perception.
It got people of all levels of intelligence to believe in these experiences and abilities as part of Scientology and the results it routinely attained despite not one bit of scientific evidence or validation ever being produced. It got otherwise sensible and moderate individuals to become fanatics and zealots in submission to Hubbard himself.
Plainly, if a con man starts with a trusting mark to fool as long as the trust doesn't fade he has a chance. That Hubbard relied on hypnosis and his understanding of rhetoric came with certain liabilities. Hypnosis as Hubbard himself remarked worked on some people on others it didn't, it worked sometimes and it didn't sometimes. The rhetoric he used was never perfect and it truly relied on people being open to the possibility he knew what he was talking about, was honest and his technology might actually work.
Many contradictions in his work and many inconsistencies if compared to reality on the subjects he discussed could expose Hubbard and end any possibility of his influence being effective.
It's clear that for a very small percentage, possibly below one percent, a great degree of influence occurs and Scientology and Hubbard comes to rule over their lives and minds in a profound way. He effectively persuades them to set aside their own critical faculties and independent judgment regarding his doctrine and they ignore the contradictions in his words.
They come to believe in past events he suggested and accept his definitions for thousands of terms as being the fundamental underlying nature of reality. They are effectively duped. They accept his definitions for all mental and emotional phenomena. In indoctrination they accept their confusion and blankness as stemming from his fictional MUs, even when they know they don't have any. They follow his idea that what they are confused about stems from something else, something he describes and never an error or problem with his methods. They interpret blind trust without doubt as desirable. That gives them deep euphoric trances. In indoctrination they interpret that as beneficial and learning while in auditing they interpret that as attaining mental and spiritual freedom.
It's a true reversal of truth as having absolutely no independence or doubt regarding another person isn't freedom, it's dependency.
So Scientology has the peculiar trait of influencing very, very few people effectively. But on a tiny number of those people it is so effective and so insidious it boggles the mind.
Now it has been so thoroughly ridiculed and exposed by the media and online that it has almost no effective recruitment efforts. It starts with people that don't believe it could be true or even not absurd.
It's secrets, crimes and absurd hidden upper level materials are exposed to people before they are recruited by the cult.
The cult shrinks and every story of Ireland or Russia or Germany that includes the details on its size helps to counter the fake expansion Scientology claims. The millions wasted to put up shiny facades is rendered worthless for fooling people outside the cult.
It's a bubble world with an ever increasing difference between the delusional reality believed in Scientology and the actuality of life.
Scientology never persuaded millions at any one time. It's had perhaps a hundred thousand members at its peak. It has maybe a fifth of that now.
It has no one left to fool now, besides the last few desperate members it abuses and loses with each passing day.
