I challenge you to find any psych manual that teaches that people who tell the truth about Scientology are sociopaths, or bad, or wrong, or should be attacked and pursued. There is no similar "tech" in psychology or psychology manuals. To whitewash the indefensible and evil SP doctrine by saying it's a version of some "tech" in psychology manuals, when it clearly isn't, is really not okay, especially when the people you're saying it to are the SP doctrine's victims. So I must challenge you to produce such psychology manuals that contain a version of the SP doctrine.
I think you have missed just exactly what LRon did
: how he tricked people into swallowing his control mechanism. There is no "white-washing" going on because what he did was not very "white". He took a well-known psychiatric label
called the anti-social personality, something that many people have experience with (but never find out about because few people get psychiatric treatment) and he added his special ingredient.

Chances are, you’re dealing with an individual with a personality disorder somewhere in your life — whether it’s your spouse, your parent, your co-worker...even your child. Dr Carver’s introduction to personality disorders in relationships puts the reality in plain English; more than just a list of diagnostic criteria, this explanation describes what it’s really like to be dealing with a personality disorder and offers tips for victims.
As a family member, they maintain themselves as the center of attention and keep the family in an uproar, or they may be the 45 year old brother who has never worked and remains dependent on the family for his support. They may be the brother or sister who verbally bullies and intimidates others with their temper tantrums. As a coworker they are manipulative, unethical, dishonest, and willing to damage co-workers to achieve their employment goals. On the street they are the criminals, con artists, and people-users who purposefully damage others, then quickly move on to avoid detection.
In over three decades of experience of dealing with victims, it’s clear that the majority of emotional victims I see in clinical practice are actually victims of an individual with a “Personality Disorder”. The “Personality Disorder” has been around for many years. For several centuries, professionals working with all types of people recognized that some individuals clearly thought and acted differently — without “normal” feelings, attitudes, behaviors, and interactions. In 1835, Dr. Pritchard suggested the term “moral insanity” to reflect the fact that these individuals were not insane by the standards of the day, yet had significant differences in their behavior, attitudes, ethics, morality, emotional expressions, and reactions to situations. Despite their significant differences when compared to others in their culture, the individuals exhibited little emotional or social distress.
A pervasive pattern of disregard for the rights of others and rules of society. The Antisocial Personality ranges from individuals who are chronically irresponsible, unsupportive, con artists to those who have total disregard for the rights of others and commit criminal acts with no remorse, including those involving the death of victims. In clinical practice, the Antisocial Personality has near-total selfishness and typically has a pattern of legal problems, lying and deception, physical assault and intimidation, no regard for the safety of others, unwillingness to meet normal standards for work/support/parenting, and no remorse.

As I was saying LRon took a well-known psychiatric label that many people have personal experience with, he practically copied it right out of the book with his "12 attributes" and he simply tacked "anti-scientologist" onto the title of the chapter. The chapter in the ethics book that covers this, makes no mention of the "anti-scientologist" or "anti-scientology", except in the title! Oh yeah, he added "is against betterment groups" as one of the attributes just to make it all congruent. Everything else in the chapter is the "personality description".
When people read this description in the "PTS C/S-1", what is it you think they identify with? How about real, actual anti-social personalities in their life, or persons resembling such? Yes, you will get some "wows" from that.
Essentially Lron adds to psychology's anti-social personality, "and they are against scientology". LOL! Talk about slight of hand!
And some actual anti-social personalities might actually be against scientology too! That makes it especially tricky.
This is the ethics book and red-on-white I am speaking of, Caroline. The travesties enacted upon you and Gerry were administrative, green-on-white activities: the SP declares you received, the fair gaming, the trashing of your life. None of that is related to the fact that LRon stole the "anti-personality" concept from psychology and made it a part of his "tech". I know to you it is all the same (SP doctrine) but to me it is not. Scientologists could
do what the psychologists do and simply help people without "declaring" them, disconnecting them, and fair gaming them. I applied this anti-social personality stuff in my life and in others lives. I stood up to a few "anti-social personalities". But I never disconnected anyone and I never "declared" anyone a "Suppressive Person" either. So I too am your proof. And here's my picture
