Hubbard - Mankind's Greatest Friend

From the "church" of Scientology's Official website on Hubbard:

Philosopher, humanitarian, author, artist, educator and administrator—L. Ron Hubbard served us in a myriad of ways. In turn, he is quite literally viewed by millions worldwide as Mankind’s greatest friend: by those now literate, by those now drug-free, by those who used his work to reclaim their honor and self-respect, by those who enjoy new-found prosperity, morality and the unmatched joy of artistic creation.

So let's take a look at our great friend.  First, let us look at a major precept of human decency and morality.  Honesty.  Can we as humans be true friends with others without it.  I don't believe so.  So what does Hubbard say about lying?  Here are a few quotes for you.

"THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them. … He's got to tell you lies in order to continue control, because the second you start telling anybody close to the truth, you start releasing him and he gets tougher and tougher to control. So, you can't control somebody without telling them a bunch of lies."

And from the Philadelphia Doctorate Course we have:

"Now, you say, "We have to be absolutely truthful and sincere; and sincerity is the main thing, and truthfulness is the main thing, and don't lie to anybody, and never…" and so on, "and you'll get ahead." You — brother, you sure will. You'll get ahead right on that cycle of action right toward zero"

As a matter of fact, if you are employed in Scientology's Office of Special Affairs, part of you training is lying.  That's right.  Every OSA member is required to take the Intelligence Course which has a different type of Training Routines (indoctrination).  This one is called TR-L (Training Routine - Lying).

Purpose: To train the student to give a false statement with good TR-1 [glossary]. To train the student to outflow [glossary] false data effectively.
Position: Same as TR-1
Commands: Part 1 "Tell me a lie". Command given by coach. Part 2 interview type 2 WC by coach.
Training Stress: In Part 1 coach gives command, student originates a falsehood. Coach flunks for out [glossary] TR 1 or TR 0. In Part 2 coach asks questions of the student on his background or a subject. Student gives untrue data of a plausible sort that that student backs up with further explanatory data upon the coach further questions. The coach flunks for out TR 0 and TR 1, and for student fumbling on question answers.

So much for honesty huh?

So how about the rest of the human condition?  In Scientology it is estimated that 20% of all of the human population on earth fall below 2.0 on the Scientology Tone Scale.

20%.  Not too many huh?  Let's look at the numbers.  There are currently 7 Billion people in the world.  So 20% would be about 1.4 Billion people that fall into the category that Scientologists would call degraded beings.  What would Hubbard have us do with these poor souls?  Have a look from Science of Survival:

"The only answers would seem to be the permanent quarantine of such persons from society to avoid the contagion of their insanities and the general turbulence which they bring into any order"

"In any event, any person from 2.0 down on the tone scale should not have, in any thinking society, any civil rights of any kind..."

Homelessness, joblessness, depression, mental illness, and so on would not be allowed.  They should be"disposed of quietly and without regret" This would include anyone who is in chronic pain (1.8), covertly hostile (1.1)(This includes all sexually aberrated  persons, defined in Scientology as L.G.B.T or even someone who masturbates regularly), people in fear, despair, terror, sympathy, the chronically ill, the dying.  Among others.  Oh yeah, don't forget those who are antagonistic toward Scientology. I want you to get this. 1.4 Billion people should be removed from society or euthanized.

And what about those of us who publicly oppose Scientology?  Hubbard doesn't pull any punches about that.  He says that we may "be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or utterly destroyed.

Lastly, would "Mankind's Greatest Friend" be a racist?  I will give you a few examples:

"The South African native is probably the one impossible person to train in the entire world — he is probably impossible by any human standard." 

– L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 119, 1 September 1957, as published in Level 0 PABS (c.1968, The American St. Hill Organization).

"As long as a white foreman is there, they will prevent soil erosion; but the moment that a white foreman turns his back — boo! There goes the whole program."

"And you finally get up to the point of where he's [native] supposed to take care of something, a lesson which has never been taught to the native of South Africa."

–L. Ron Hubbard, 15th ACC (Power of Simplicity) lecture "Education: Point of Agreement", 30 Oct 1956.

 What Gall!  And finally, from a letter to his first wife Polly:

"You shouldn't be scrubbing the floor on your hands and knees. Get yourself a nigger; that's what they're born for."

Thanks for being here today.  Please come back soon for more.  You comments, as always are welcomed.

  1. This looks like something Ron Hubbard would have invented. My, oh my.
