Indeed, the idea of democracy is condemned by L. Ron Hubbard in his HCO
Policy Letter 7 February 1965 "Keeping Scientology Working" in which he
"The common denominator of a group is the reactive bank. Thetans without
banks [Clears and OTs] have different responses."
"The bank [Hubbard's term for the reactive mind] seeks to knock out the
good and perpetuate the bad."
"...there have been thousands and thousands of suggestions and writings
which, if accepted and acted upon, would have resulted in the complete
destruction of all our work as well as the sanity of pcs. So I know what a
group of people will do and how insane they will go in accepting unworkable
'technology'. By actual record the percentages are about twenty to 100,000
that a group of human beings will dream up bad technology to destroy good
technology. As we could have gotten along without suggestions, then, we had
better steel ourselves to continue to do so now that we have made it. This
point will, of course, be attacked as 'unpopular', 'egotistical' and
'undemocratic'. It very well may be."
"So constructive ideas are INDIVIDUAL [Hubbard's] and seldom get broad
agreement in a human group. [Hubbard called Clears "Homo Novis" - new man -
in his book "Dianetics:The Modern Science of Mental Health".] An individual
rise above an avid craving for agreement [democracy] from a humanoid [WOG]
group to get anything decent done."
The decent, pleasant things on this planet come from INDIVIDUAL actions
and ideas that have somehow gotten by the Group Idea [democracy]. For that
matter, look how we ourselves [$cientology and $cientologists] are attacked
by "public opinion" media. Yet there is no more ethical [according to our
redefinition of 'ethical'] group on this planet than ourselves."
"Thus each one of us can rise above the domination of the bank and then,
as a group of freed beings, achieve freedom and reason. It is only the
aberrated group [the rest of the world - the 'WOGS'], the mob, that is
"We're not playing some minor game in Scientology. It isn't cute or
something to do for lack of something better."
"We'd rather have you dead than incapable."
"The whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on
it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depend on
what you do here and now with and in Scientology."
"This is a deadly serious activity. And if we miss getting out of the
trap now, we may never again have another chance."
This is the basis for $cientology's justification for doing everything
they do - i.e., to "Keep $cientology Working". They firmly believe that
they know best, and it is their belief that they, as Clears and OTs, are
superior beings. Make no mistake about it - $cientology's intention is to
be in charge of EVERY government in the world.
Often at "musters" while in the Sea Org, the whole staff would chant in
unison: "WE are going UP while the WORLD is going DOWN!!"
Think long and hard about this...
