It seems like a bad idea to sell this "technology" where people think they can categorize others at a glance, and basically write them off.
That is so true Glibby, I agree
And on top of that consider how dangerous it is that Hubbard made these unfounded but broad and sweeping claims about how to deal with people at different tone levels and there are all kinds of scientologists who will follow what he said completely, with blind faith.
I really thought of this once when I arrived in Berlin with Ursula Caberta on a train from Hamburg. I looked at a portion of the Berlin wall that was still up so it could serve as a reminder of a dark past there.
Then I told Ursula how it reminded me of a time while in college when I toured the Nazi death camp at Dachau. The horrors there were surreal. It was hard to imagine anyone classifying whole sections of the population as undesirable much less those people being isolated from society and "disposed of" like they were. I remember breaking down in tears in Dachau at how those poor, innocent people suffered so and how positively cruel those in power then could be.
Now at Dachau they do their best to keep the truth there alive in the hope that the world will never forget what happened there and that man will never let it happen again.
Then I went over with Ursula L Ron Hubbard's own words about all those people that he arbitrarily labeled as below 2.0 on his ridiculous "tone scale". Hubbard said that they should be isolated from society as undesirable and he said that if they could not be handled with scientology processes that they should be disposed of quietly and without sorrow.
Then I read to Ursula some of the transcript from Hubbard's talk called "Future Org Trends" where he said that one day the orgs would become the political centers for their areas and that all policies except scientology policy would be cancelled (goodbye US constitution, etc.).
And all this made me think that my God all those past horrors would happen again in a world run on scientology policy!!!!
Indeed Glibby, it is awful to think that people following this unfounded Hubbard "tech" could just categorize people at a glance and write them off. But it actually could be even worse, much worse.
Thus I think it is important, as part of getting out the truth about scientology, to also help open peoples' eyes to just how unfounded and dangerous some Hubbard writings can be.
