Jefferson Hawkins recently wrote one of the most damning books ever written about Scientology, I spent 35 years working for the Church of Scientology, all over the world, and at all echelons, including the top-level at the Scientology International Base in Hemet, California.
In Counterfeit Dreams he details the evil abuses of Scientology not as isolated incidents but as a systematic regimen of cruelty designed to break down the human spirit and render staff members in compliant, mindless and unquestioning Scieno-Bots. And where did this evil come from? Much of it was from the Master Thetan himself, L. Ron Hubbard who gave the world such wonderful things as Disconnection, the Fair Game Policy and the RPF. This bedrock of sadism was built on with great energy and zeal by the current dictator of Scientology, David Miscavige. This pint-sized dictator developed a taste for beating subordinates, jumping over tables during meetings to do so. This has been chronicled in other recent books notably Abuse at the Top by Amy Scobee. Miscavige studied as a young lad under Hubbard and learned his dictitorial management style from the boss himself. But it is more than the beatings, more than the RPF and being fed rice and beans when the infernal Stats are down. It is the terrible way Scientologists treat each other. Evidently there is nothing much in Hubbard’s teachings about being respectful of each other; in particular there is no emphasis in the Sea Org about getting along or even Love Thy Neighbor. Nope, it is shark infested waters in Scientology staff life; they yell, scream, lie, steal from and abuse each other like no heathens on earth would do.
