The real danger in the standard tech is not that it doesn't work, but that it does. Specially in the hands of an expert auditor like Marty it can be used to manipulate and even break people mentally.
Not every scientologist nor everything in scientology is evil. Some pieces of the tech can be used for good as well. But thanks to the likes of LRH and DM, the good things got overwhelmed by the evil scheme they were part of. And lets not forget that the good things scientology has to offer are stolen from other philosophies, like Buddhism.
If you really want to salvage something, take out those rare valuable pieces, store them away safely and then tear the "building" called scientology down. No matter who leads it; the names "scientology", "dianetics", LRH, auditing and "standard tech" are contaminated by evil associations. Specially everything from OT III and up.
Maybe someone can salvage the rare gems in the mudpile, but it has to be done under a totally different name, by people who have now, and never in the past, anything to do with LRH and/or current management. This includes Marty Rathburn and his Indie elite. These people all have, some more than others, dirt on their hands. And they still don't come clean on what happened under Hubbard's direct orders, way before the Miscavige era started.
The greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics? IMHO? Put an end to the monster scientology has become.
HERE WE GO!!
GET RID OF:
- the space opera
-the satanic references
-the obvious megalomania of Ron
-the lies (I mean "acceptable truth's)
-the bad medicine
-the forced sale of overpriced vitamins
-the crazy Fifties ideas about homosexuality and the role of females
-the idea victims are guilty of their fate (pulling it in)
-LRon's cures for radiation, cancer, and mental health issues
-his pro-smoking stance
-the ridiculous anti-drugs stance at the same time
-the whole body thetan crap
-drop all the E-meters in the ocean
-sell the big buildings and donate the proceeds to the victims or their next of kin
-send the perps to jail
-start paying long overdue taxes
-close every Narconon facility worldwide
-prohibit Introspection- and Purification Rundown's
-abolish the OT levels and the "Bridge to total Freedom".
-abolish Keep Scientology working
-abolish the Sea Org billion year contracts
-abolish OSA, Fair Game, SP, PTS and disconnection
-abolish coercing abortion under female Sea Org members
-abolish "Entheta", let people be free to read and make up their own mind
-Close the RPF in every way, shape or form
-Fire the current Board of Directors
-Start working together with the mental health-and medical profession and with Law Enforcement.
Quite a list, isn't it?
It would be so much easier to just forget the whole thing and join a circle of Bhuddists or some Native American spirituality group. And meanwhile let the real mental health scientists take a serious look at the things in the tech that do seem to work. In a way Hubs was on to something, but it needs to be researched.
By real scientists. Not by quacks like M&M or The Evil Midget Hisself!
But that's just me speaking.
And what do I know?
