Lafayette Ron Hubbard knew exactly what he was doing when he set up his Ponzi scheme. He was misguided to say the least. Here he is, in his own words, charming as ever. From his books, memo’s & policies:
He wanted ultimate control of everything – all the scientologists, their money, their minds, their children, their lives, the IRS, the psych industry, Big Pharma, the media, the papers, his critics, his enemies, the world. Everyone.
He was not qualified to treat anyone, especially not their mental health. His was in such a state of disarray. He had no training or certification of any kind to treat anyone. In fact, he never finished college – his grades were terrible. He did not have any degrees from any accredited schools. When he invented scientology, he gave himself a ‘doctorate of scientology’- which has absolutely no validity in the real world.
He set up his scam in such a way so that if anybody dared to question his policies & ways of thinking, they would turn the attack on that person instead of addressing the allegations. “Don’t defend, deflect. Don’t explain, attack.” .. ‘that person is lost & they haven’t realized how wonderful scientology is yet, we must cut them off so that they realize the error of their ways & come back to us’ .. or whatever their bullshit du jour is.
He was evil. A compulsive liar. There wasn’t a genuine bone in his body. Even if scientology was valid, he can’t charge people 3 million dollars while simultaneously claiming he’s helping people. There’s only 1 person he’s helping – LRH. Actions speak volumes – they drown out words .. He used fear to control. He created such a climate of fear; a reflection of his sick & twisted psyche. He isolated people to better control them. He saw the world through the eyes of fear. Everything he did yells Fear! Fear! Fear!
The “bridge” to total freedom would have been more aptly named the ladder. A bridge takes you across, & often you are at about the same level as when you started. Sounds more like ‘being taken for a ride’. A ladder takes you from the bottom to the top, you climb the levels to reach higher & higher. So a ladder would have definitely been the better piece of equipment. You’d save a whole lot of time by using a ladder instead of a bridge. There is no logical reason to call it a bridge. I think he called it a bridge because he wanted to laugh at people in plain sight. Remember the age old saying re gullible folk? “.. well if you believe that then I’ve got a bridge to sell you!” People have been making that joke for eons when they run into somebody gullible; always the joke about trying to sell them a bridge. Well there you go. He weaved a very wicked web. A lot of these twisted delusionals take sick pleasure in watching the results of their evil schemes.I noticed one thing continuously absent from his “teachings.” The one thing that is consistently missing from any & all of the org’s policies, rules, vids & people. There is something that he, & scientology as a whole, never speak about; something so important, so beautiful – Love 😍
Where is their Compassion? Empathy? Kindness? Joy? Inner Peace? Harmony? Positivity? Authenticity? Unconditional Love? That’s right, nowhere. It isn’t present in anything in scientology. He never wrote about that. He holds the Guinness book of world records for most books published by one author, but never once mentioned that maybe what would help the world is being kind & compassionate towards others. Giving instead of taking. Showing gratitude & appreciation. If you discovered (invented) a formula that could help people, give it to them at a reasonable price; show that you truly want to help them instead of just making yourself rich.
Instead, he chose to be aggressive, hostile, combative & volatile. Chose to rob them blind. Chose to tear families apart. Caused many deaths through negligence & drove many to suicide – too many people weren’t getting the help they needed. They don’t help people, they destroy them. It was never about helping people. They fraudulently claim they can treat & cure people of things they have zero qualifications or certifications to do so! It’s Insane! The truth is he didn’t have the faintest fucking clue on how to live a good life. He was trapped in his sick & twisted mind. He set up a perfect plan, evil but brilliant – by ‘declaring’ everyone who disagrees as the problem; deflecting the attention away from himself.
.. trick them, fool them, keep them busy, isolate them, suffocate them, & all will be mine, you’ll see.
