DEMONIZATION FOR THE PROFIT
Below: Have you seen this crazy man?
I was picketing on the side walk on Connecticut Avenue in front of $cientology’s Washington DC Hypnosis Facility. I was at the corner of Connecticut Avenue and R Streets NW. This was back around 2000. The image was taken from their own religiousfreedomwatch.org website.
For those interested in details, copy the image and zoom in… The kitchen background can be seen to have been photo-shopped into this picture, the light isnt right, and my shirt was a yellow cotton button down, not white polyester kitchen help.. This is a few steps beyond reality, and produced mainly for their own hypnotised members for which
“If it’s true for you, it’s true for you” is their version of “truth”.
One of their operatives had been baiting me in a similar manner that BBC Reporter John Sweeney was being bull baited when he blew up at the camera. This is based on a written training routine called Reporter Training Routines. Here is an excerpt:
He does this either by a snide remark, question or comment, or by physical overwhelm, whichever seems the right action……. LINK
Anyhow after perhaps an hour of her badgering I lost my temper, but I did not lose teeth, get distorted and teleport to a restaurant kitchen.
That face is my face, with a few edits. but yes I was angry at the taunts being made on Connecticut Avenue in front of their brainwashing facility, and these were taunts that made no sense to me whatsoever – until she snapped her photo.
Scientology has extensive photo shop experience… Even if I was made angry, and then distorted, and my face made lumpy, and a front tooth removed and transported magically into a kitchen I know not where, at least *I* still have my head. Check out THE MAN WITH NO HEAD story here.
Hubbard had no problems lying, in Dianetics he compares his fraudulent creation as being
“comparable to the discovery fire”
The only thing about Dianetics and Scientology that is comparable in magnitude to the discovery of fire, is the magnitude of the lie. Based on covert methods to cause a person to become more suggestible, it is clinical hypnotism for hire. Hubbard could NOT call it what it was… Hypnosis Clinics. He would have been regulated by the authorities. So Hubbard had no choice, he had to lie, so he did what he was good at, he told us a story about discovering a new technology of the mind. He said his new technology would raise you to your highest potential, achieving god like status and psychic powers..
And it was a hell of a good story. But, even the old hypnotists, in the Journal of Hypnotism, 1952, described this supposed discovery of fire as, and I quote:
And the first official government inquiry into Dianetics and Scientology concluded the same:
“Many scientology techniques are in fact hypnotic techniques, and Hubbard has not changed their nature by changing their names. Hubbard seems quite capable of thinking that if he postulates that scientology techniques are different from hypnotic techniques then they are different. Whether or not Hubbard realises that the only differences are in name, his followers loyally and uncritically accept his word and believe that scientology techniques are distinctively Hubbardian and that hypnosis is something quite different and evil and to be avoided. A number of scientology witnesses, when asked what they believed hypnosis to be, answered vaguely that it was some sort of stage technique for mesmerising people by the waving of hands in front of them, or some such thing. It may, of course, be that, but it is many other things also and of its real nature Hubbard’s followers seem generally to be unaware. The common practice of Hubbard is to change the names of hypnotic phenomena to names of his own invention, purporting thereby to change the nature and significance of such phenomena. Thus, a form of unconsciousness experienced in hypnosis he has renamed variously ” anaten “, ” boil-off”, and ” dope-off ” ; hypnotic hallucinations he has called ” mental image pictures” ; and ” dissociation ” he has called ” exteriorization “”

There is no question what Dianetics and Scientology are, there is, however considerable ignorance about what hypnosis is and how it is done.
In typewritten notes by Forrest Ackerman, Hubbard’s Literary Agent, he describes watching Hubbard give a stunning performance to a meeting of the Science Fiction club in Los Angeles. During this demonstration, Hubbard caused one young man to believe he was holding cute miniature kangaroo in his hand, who then went around showing everyone his prize in his cupped hands. Another kid, was told while holding onto a stairwell banister that he was holding onto a red-hot iron railing and he could not let go. The kid was screaming in paid. This last demonstration reminds me of the condition of many scientologists. LINK (half way down the page to images)
Another apt comparison is to do a google search for “Bad Effects of Hypnosis” the results describe the thousands of horror stories of scientology.
And I recently learned that the state of Florida has a law on its books that could shut $cientology down, called The Hypnosis Law
Perhaps now “Something CAN be done about it”
(See the follow up to this post HERE)
P.S.: And this is Hubbard’s attitude toward the law:
Here is what his own son said under penalty of perjury:
“my father always felt that he was above the law because he had created the law. He created whatever rules, regulations, and laws to be lived by. There was only one sin in Scientology, which was repeated to me at least a few thousand times, which is, getting caught.“
