Skeptic Tank!

Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to those who report. - Fredric L.

Woody admits as has been shown elsewhere that the COS is failing and is shrinking.... The inquisition is on the run.... "The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder. The evidence portrays a man who has been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background, and achievements. The writings and documents in evidence additionally reflect his egoism, greed, avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile." From the judgement of Judge Paul G. Breckenridge in the Armstrong case, 1984. Before going over the specific past and ongoing examples of Scientology's true actions and policies toward its adversaries it is necessary to cover a brief overview of the four overriding strategies that appear in greater or lesser degrees in and behind all Scientology actions directed at its enemies. The best way to understand them is to directly to the source of these action directing and demanding policies. From the writings of L. Ron Hubbard: "The purpose of a lawsuit is to harass and discourage rather than to win....Don't ever defend. Always attack. Find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause them to sue for peace. Originate a black PR campaign to destroy the person's repute and to discredit them so thoroughly they will be ostracized. Be alert to sue for slander at the slightest chance so as to discourage the public presses from mentioning Scientology." "It is my specific intention that by the use of professional PR [black PR) tactics any opposition not only be dulled but permanently iradicated." From a confidential Board Policy Letter of 30 may 1974 Handling Hostile Agents/Dead Agenting. "Threat and mystery are the lot of intelligence." From HCO Policy Letter of 11 May 1971. "NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology. ONLY agree to investigate the attackers....This is the correct procedure: (1) Spot who is attacking us. (2) Start investigating them for FELONIES or worse, using our own professionals, not outside agencies. (3) Double curve our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them. (4) Start feeding lurid, blood, sex, crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press....Don't ever submit tamely to an investigation of us. Make it rough on the attackers all the way....You can get "reasonable about it" and lose .... so BANISH all ideas that any fair hearing is intended and start our attack with their first breath. Never wait. Never talk about us -- only them. Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines. Don't use us." From HCO policy letter of 25 Feb. 1966, "Attacks on Scientology." Scientology has put these and its famous "fair game" policies into action throughout its history to remove any obstacles to its advancement. "An enemy, "[they] may be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist...may be tricked, sued, lied to, or destroyed." From the words of L. Ron Hubbard in HCO policy letter of 18 October 1967, known as the "Fair Game Policy."
