Here’s a little something in response to the handful of cur dogs who criticize our efforts to cease the spiritual carnage that has become in the public mind Scientology. It is something from L Ron Hubbard, the Founder of the subject. This is likely so obvious that it goes without saying to the majority involved in this grassroots movement called Independent Scientology. But, I re-iterate as there are OSA bait dupes on the fringe who expend a lot of energy on attempting to drag down folk who are taking responsibility for this thing called Scientology. As confusion is their stock in trade, let us have a little stable data as remedy.
Excerpts from L Ron Hubbard lecture, Formative States of Scientology – Definition of Logic.
Let’s take the subject of Scientology and let’s see if there’s any logic involved with it at all. There isn’t a mathematics that can embrace the subject of Scientology, because it is an invented mathematics. It’s an invented mathematics that accepts gradient scales and “absolutes are unattainable.” And it is a method of thinking about things. And it is just as true as it is workable. And no truer. And is not, in itself, an abitrary, fascistic police force to make sure that we all think right thoughts. It’s a servant of the mind, and servo-mechanism of the mind. It is not a master of the mind. Scientology will decline and become useless to man on the day when it becomes the master of thinking. Don’t think it won’t do that. It has every capability of doing that.
Contained in the knowable, workable portions before your eyes there are methods of controlling human beings and thetans which have never before been dreamed of in this universe. Control mechanisms of such awesome and solid proportions that if the remedies were not so much easier to apply, one would be appalled at the dangerousness to beingness that exists in Scientology.
Fortunately, it was intelligently invented, and I say that without any possible bow; I say that because part of its logic was: the remedy should exist before the bullet…
…So anybody that knows the remedy of this subject, anybody that knows these techniques, is himself actually under a certain responsibility – that’s to make sure that he doesn’t remain a sole proprietor. That’s all it takes, just don’t remain a sole proprietor. Don’t ever think that a monopoly of this subject is a safe thing to have. It’s not safe. It’s not safe for Man; it’s not safe for this universe. This universe has long been looking for new ways to make slaves. Well, we’ve got some new ways to make slaves here. Let’s see that none are made. (emphasis added)
And of course, the paragraph of this lecture that was edited out in David Miscavige’s New Golden Age of Knowledge version by David Miscavige personally:
It’s a very simple remedy. And that’s just make sure the remedy is passed along. That’s all. Don’t hoard it. Don’t hold it. And if you ever do use any black Dianetics, use it on the guy who pulled Scientology out of sight and made it so it wasn’t available. Because he’s the boy who would be electing himself “the new order.” We don’t need any more new orders — all those orders as far as I’m concerned have been filled.
Now when it comes to logic, the logic of putting this together had as its first criterion what? Application? What were we going to do? What were we trying to do? That was fairly well thought out, we were trying to help beingness. What are we going to do? Well, we’re trying to help beingness. There’s a good cause and effect definition. We sit down and we say, “now, what’s our purpose? What’s this all about? What’s the first statement made on that?” Well, that was it. It wasn’t a slop around of ‘well, let’s be scientific and let’s fool around and let’s see if we can make a lot of money.’ No, it was just a simple clear-cut statement. It presupposed one thing: that something could be done.
