Ex-Scientologist Story #210, “how to make a picket sign.”


 The following is from a 2002 Internet posting by Joes Cisar.  Over the years Joe has done a lot to show people just what Scientology really is: an avaricious cult started by an umpleasent dictator.

Over 20 years ago, I gave Scientology a chance to prove
that it worked. A couple of years and a couple of thousand dollars later, I had satisfied myself that the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard, as taught in Scientology, do not work. I found out for myself that it is not possible for a person to leave his body and  travel to outer space, as Hubbard had said. Neither is it possible for a person, using Hubbard’s teachings, to instantly and accurately remember every single moment of his life.  Neither does “Dianetics” cure any sickness or physical ailment, as Hubbard promised it would in his book on “Dianetics.” To sum up, as a result of going through this costly ordeal, I found out that Scientology promises truth and enlightenment, but instead delivers difficulty and failure. Once this realization came over me, I left Scientology and had nothing more to do with Hubbard or his teachings for decades.

In the course of my experience with Scientology, I found out more than just the fact that the organization did not deliver what it promised.  Hubbard’s organization was a personality cult, not a benign cult, where everything merely revolved around praising Hubbard. The practice and policy of Scientology revolved around enforcing public acceptance of Hubbard. By enforcing public acceptance, I mean using other than rational, acceptable means to get people to accept Hubbard. . . .

Essentially, Scientology is a system that transfers Hubbard’s thought
process into the minds of the organization’s adherents. This is done via Scientology’s private media. Reading the teachings of Scientology is the equivalent of injecting oneself with a small portion of Hubbard’s own personality. Therefore, the safest way for somebody not familiar with destructive cults to learn about Scientology is to first study the character of its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. There is less danger that way of making the same mistake so many others already have. This also helps to build up some resistance to the potentially harmful effects that can result from Hubbard’s peculiar mentality.

While L. Ron Hubbard was a complex individual, with regards to
Scientology, he can be thought of in a certain way. Picture a
megalomaniac who believes that all the power in the universe is already in existence. This particular megalomaniac had one obsession that overshadowed all others in his search for power. Hubbard was obsesses with being right. While perhaps everyone has a need for power or to be right, the megalomaniac is unbalanced. The human need has become an obsession in the megalomaniac. Each one of Hubbard’s statements is considered by doctrine to be absolutely right, even though he frequently contradicted himself.

Now, think of power as an object, as if it were gold. We can safely
presume that all the gold in the world already exists. Therefore if a
person wants gold, he has to get it from somebody else. One person’s
gain, by necessity, will be someone else’s loss. This is the same way
Hubbard thought about power and about being right. Hubbard’s power or rightness consistently come only as a result of another’s’ loss.

Besides exposing just what a miserable hoax Scientology is Joe offered some practical advise on how to make a picket sign.
