Wow! Bad me. All I did was politely answer some questions, and then it was attack city…I've rarely seen so many Hubbardian subtle (some not too subtle) takeover techniques used so well.
Braveheart congratulations on duplicating Hubbard’s technique number one......Everybody’s bad and evil except me.
And of course - you never ever finger point!
Some are using standard scientology emotional blackmail techniques....mainly if: “I don't think the way you do or do what you want - you won't approve of me!” Wonder how many times a day you run that on your friends and associates?
On a much brighter note I can recommend getting out and telling your story……I have had some wonderful phone calls….that have filled in many areas I was just guessing in, which in turn restored many areas of friendship back.
I am sure most of you are aware, that what I write about is only as I saw it then, whether it is true or I was completely deluded even now I’m not sure sometimes.…..slowly the dots are connecting.
This morning I woke up seeing the whole track of Scio…….
In the early fifties “the era of Dianetic’s”, after the initial failures and plenty of individual successes, a lot of Dianetic Practitioners continued with Dianetic’s….Jana can tell you a lot more about this than I can.
Scio then moved into an era spanning 1952 to 1959 of almost anything goes…..people were coming up with a lot of great processes……squirreling was almost the natural order of the day, this pretty much continued until 1959. (Dianetics actually mutated into holographic running of incidents and areas of your life.) The first covert control point was most likely HCO. This was the ethics arm as well as many other hats of Scio in those days. Somewhere there is an old HCO Manual posted on the internet. If you read it you will see some surprising policies.
Things began to tighten up as the Orgs got more power and trained staff, though there were very few Orgs. Then things tightened up even more….especially as the Saint Hill Briefing Course started to graduate people.
The period from 1960 to 1964 was the period of sovereignty. People were processed on their own goals. They were free to use anything they wanted.
1964 began the period of domination, own goals were out, you now ran on Hubbard’s Goals all hatting, processing and training was designed to be aligned to Hubbard . The “cult” era was beginning. The Mission Network actually secretly did not go along with this……they developed the Life Repair, or expanded the Life Repair…..Life Repair allowed the person to be processed on their own goals.
There were always a large number of people who would leave at these change points.
Each subsequent year saw more and more control points and Organization being built to enforce the goals of Hubbard. The GO came into being, Then the SO, and the CMO, plus lots of sub-organizations and bureaus.
Basically from 1964 on Hubbard took peoples own goals and dreams and converted them to his. And that is what we are all deadly afraid of.
Dreams and Goals are spiritual life processes, not head processes.
There should be a law that makes it a crime that no-one should sign a contract. For that simple action steals your own free will, it traps you on someone else’s time track, it traps you in someone else’s game. Before long you have lost your own Dreams and Goals, and end up with no time, no space, no energy or things of your own.
Contracts include such things as Credit Cards, Mortgages, Car Payments, Jobs, Courses, etc., etc.
If you can’t afford it – don’t sign up for it, don’t buy it, don’t do it.
If you are lucky enough to know what you value and love doing, just do it, take it to mastery, don’t be afraid to charge for it, but don’t let that stop you, just do it, you don’t need no stinkin’ twit to tell you anything.
You should not only be laughing with the joys of life on the outside you should also be laughing with the joys of yourself in the inside.
