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 - Predictable Legal Strategy

I think with many actions by Scientology the basic policies describe how Scientology acted yesterday, acts today and will act tomorrow. Because it's such a high control group and so authoritarian the thoughts of cult members and acts to keep it surviving defer to Hubbard's doctrine far more than the acts of free people.
The mental slavery in Scientology produces zealots and fanatics as Hubbard intended, but at the terrible sacrifice of their critical, linear, rational, logical and independent thinking faculties. Those areas are often diminished by decades of Scientology indoctrination.
That's a recipe for high conformity with low originality. Hubbard had lots of doctrine. But much of it repeats the same core ideas over and over and uses variations on the same themes often with rewordings and even extreme contradictions. The contradictions if irreconcilable and one hundred eighty degrees apart create cognitive dissonance by being simultaneously held in the same mind. That requires denial and dissociation to be escaped but obliterates reason regarding the denied and dissociated portion of Scientology.
That requires cognitive distortions to avoid being faced. Facing such content is too traumatic and so avoided. But the avoidance carries an inability to think about what is not faced consciously. Psychological defense mechanisms like denial, projection, repression, age regression, and others so severely impair critical thinking that further thought on these ideas is quite difficult. An easier alternative is to not investigate different situations and rely on Scientology doctrine for the correct action in every situation.
So knowing the basic policies Hubbard laid out and consistent acts the cult has taken gives a very good guide to what they are doing and likely will do in the future.
Here's some Hubbard ideas that guide the cult today in legal matters.
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
"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"
"If attacked on some vulnerable point by anyone or anything or any organization, always find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace."
- Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 15 August 1960, Dept. of Govt. Affairs
"The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than to win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is not authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly."
"When we need somebody haunted we investigate…When we investigate we do so noisily always."
- Ron Hubbard, MANUAL OF JUSTICE, 1959
