“That hatred springs more from self-contempt than from a legitimate grievance is seen in the intimate connection between hatred and a guilty conscience. There is perhaps no surer way of infecting ourselves with virulent hatred toward a person than by doing him a grave injustice. That others have a just grievance against us is a more potent reason for hating them than that we have a just grievance against them. ……Self-righteousness is a loud din raised to drown the voice of guilt within us.” Eric Hoffer
If a person knows something that another, sometimes simply a thief, does not wish known they will find themselves being called names and associated with unpopular and unpleasant imagery. This makes the person perceived to be unsuitable, by mere association, for such a fine person as yourself to even think about listening to!
Done to keep you from learning a truth that the person who is being depopularized has previously learned, and often learned at considerable personal expense both monetary and otherwise.
The man writing these words you are reading has been called, literally, dozens of names from “anti-religious bigot” and “copyright terrorist” to “anti-semite” and “holocaust denier” and has had separate unannounced visits from the US Postal Inspectors and the FBI Anti-Terror unit of Washington DC in response to false allegations sent to them by Scientology.
Recently, the media claimed that after President Trump was inaugurated, they removed the bust of Martin Luther King from with White House. Of course this was a complete fabrication. LINK
Back in 1994 before the lawsuit, in order to demonize me for meeting with Willis Carto of The Liberty Lobby, whose newspaper The Spotlight was the only newsprint paper critical of Israel, who broke the story of the attack on the USS Liberty, and were critical of the Federal Reserve – and this was before the web took off.
Scientology induced a Washington post writer to claim that Mr Carto had 4 busts of Hitler in his office. Having actually been in his office, all I saw was a picture of Thomas Jefferson, with a placard that said “America’s First Populist”
In 1995, at 9:30 on one saturday morning, was raided under color-of-law under the authority of the Eastern Federal Judicial District of Virginia, after a Federal Judge was fooled by the use of implication into believing their FRAUDs to be true.
The Washington Post did an article LINK and then the Washington Post was sued also. To settle this case and a couple other cases, I was offered a 50 page settlement that included lies for me to sign and agree to a $50,000 penalty if I did an interview or wrote a page like the one you are reading now. I also had to state that I believed scientology to be a religion, which would make me a co-conspirator in their elaborate fraud. In exchange for my soul they would give three of us 9-12 million 1995 US Dollars to fight over, in cash.
We slept on it, dreaming for one night of sugar plum fairies dancing in bed of dollars…and decided unanimously that we believed the value of our human souls were worth far more than what scientology had offered… and then life got even stranger. In hindsight I feel lucky to still be alive at all. So please pay attention and try to learn this lesson because demonization, or character assassination, is the public execution in an age of information warfare.
See this Quora Answer regarding harassment for a long but incomplete list of some of the things I have had to endure in order to continue to tell you the truth, and this is not an isolated case. Consider what my benefactor, and friend, investment banker Mr Robert Minton had to endure LINK to chronology, LINK to Greenway’s scam, and this is a directory of some of the pre-2005 incidents against other critics.
This missive is an effort to rise from the dead.
For decades there were subjects that I did not want to think about, but, during my deconstruction of the methods of deception used by the fraud called scientology I learned many lessons. ONE of these was about demonization – having been demonized for literally decades by agents of and by scientology.
Below “Scientology Membership “news”
The ultimate form of achieving silence is to just kill the person so they stop speaking. This is truth control by assassination, however, even assassination can be turned to your advantage and to the advantage of the dead victim.
I read an article about the murder of a Professor of Religion of and at The University of Chicago. Thinking, what on earth might motivate the assassination of a professor of religon?, Wanting this answer, I sought out the man’s books, and read two of them, one about the Italian, Giordano Bruno, burned at the stake in 1600 by the Vatican for telling the truth, and the other, called “Out of this World” exposed key secrets of several well known belief systems. Professor Culianu had done to the major belief systems the same thing that I did to scientology in 1995! and his book included is a brutally honest disclosure of the core secrets of the Kabbalah… Both books are a must read for those of you who are already thinking.. What Professor Culianu documented might just change this world but only if you learn it and encourage others to do so, as I am trying to do now.
So when you hear of some writer or publisher who was bumped off… use this as clue that there just might be some valuable information there to learn. You might both give this man’s life meaning by learning what was hoped to be concealed.. sort of a Streisand effect for assassinations…and free your own mind from previously induced delusion…
And no it is not easy, but should you master this, you will have begun to master your own mind.
Somewhat less terminal than outright murders, is Demonization, which is the equivalent of assassination in the dis-information age. You take the person and surround them with unpleasant people, always arguing in the vicinity of the target. This associates that person with unpleasantness.
Then, perhaps, show him as kitchen help. Scientology actually did this to a picture of me taken while walking on the Connecticut Avenue, after finally succeeding in getting me angry so I yelled back at them for their repeated lies. I was peacefully picketing one of their brainwashing facilities in DC. They then photoshopped the street scene out and placed me in a kitchen…
Another time a stranger asked if I had an extra picket sign and I did as I sometimes do, and I handed this man a sign. As I did cameras clicked and I was now an associate with some well known political loony…who may have made a good living building a disreputable reputation and then showing up as people’s pals who needed to be depopularized.
Whisper horrible stories about how greedy and droolingly insane this person is, and that he kicks his dog before beating his wife while porno is playing on the widescreen TV. Or use the “holocaust denier” and “anti-semite” slogans. These are particularly good at stopping thought through reminders of horror, which is, incidentally the same way that 911 gained its power, because when thinking stops for whatever reason, the door to your subconscious is left unguarded.
Going to scientology’s own publications to see who it was that they demonized… and then reading what those people had to say, has turned, Aikido style, their own suggestions into a teaching aid, turning the purpose of their effort inside out. (note1) This method works with all corrupt structures in society not just with money making covert hypnotic pseudo-religious scams...
So if you feel revulsion at reading what an accused “kook” “worm” “slime” or even a “holocaust denier” or “anti-semite” says, and refuse to even look, you have fallen into this mind control briar patch just as those that paid to create it intended. This is a place where thinking and learning stops.
If this feels difficult, it is, and it is because your conscious mind is pushing against the unconscious suggestions and mental conditionings(note2) of the past, that have been done by masters of manipulation, using the same METHODS that Dr Robert Oppenhiemer warned us about. (It was shortly after this that his ‘patriotism’ began to be questioned)
Next actually read and digest the brilliant research done by an alleged “anti-semite”, a man named Michael Hoffman II. Read his book “Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare” which happens to describe Scientology by name. This blew me away, and most everything around me looked new, fresh and alive… Seems truth wipes away ugly delusions.
So vow to turn each and every instance that you encounter demonization into a big green flag that says READ ME and truth will flourish.
Without truth all is delusion.
CASE HISTORY EXAMPLES
ONE EXAMPLE FROM FACEBOOK
I am reading ARROWS IN THE DARK by Merrell Vannier. It is about his experiences as a GO Operative. Incredible read!!!! 5 Stars!
To which I replied:
Arnie Lerma replied: yes… note the extent of effort used by David Miscavige to make one person believe they had an opportunity to achieve their dreams – when all of it was choreographed at great expense to get them out of the picture…(Referring to the incident about the horse ranch in New Zealand – the person that Hubbard had appointed previously for life to be the head of CST in Scientology had a dream job about running a horse farm in New Zealand… wouldn’t you know, a man who ran one appeared, and offered her an opportunity to run it! She took the man up on his offer, thereby abandoning the position at CST, which allowed DM to take it over completely)
This is a pattern of conduct makes other events that are casually dismissed by the crowd (The crowd of politically correct acceptable truthers) as nutball conspiracy theories into “just another normal day” for the scientology war.
Note: In 1977 Scientology was convicted of CONSPIRACY, with jail time served!
(NOTE also the use of the Phrase “One thin dime”, this was phrase was used by scientology demonstrators and online during their decade long effort to deny Ex-scientologist Lawrence Wollersheim’s civil judgement from scientology for “intentional infliction of emotional duress”. The scientologists would chant “Not one thin dime for Wollershiem” ) How clever they are..like a child stamping his foot.
I read it after the book was mentioned by Graham Berry on FB and noted that an osa operative took time and effort to demonize the author with the “thought stopping” holocaust smear:
“Hell will bloody well freeze over before I ever read a book by a holocaust denier!!”
Miscavige arranged to have a man offer this girl the job, her dream come true, oif managing a horse farm in New Zealand. She left to pursue her dream, thinking how lucky she was. When in fact, it was all contrived bait, so that David Miscavige could take complete corporate control of Scientology.
Do you see, now, why the author was demonized as a “holocaust denier”?
So that no one would read the book and let people know how Miscavige took control of the crown jewels of scientology, control of the corporation that owns the copyrights. Copyrights that are “held” by RTC. (Open a current scientology book and note the copyright wording!)
AND so that people would never know just how far David Miscavige will actually go to get whatever David Miscavige wants.
Pause here and contemplate this for a while, in light of this list of approximately half of the incidents that I know about.
Another notable observation by Mr. Merril Vannier is that Scientology never wins in litigation when the opposing party introduces evidence from the 1977 FBI Raids. Read OPERATIONS OFFICER described as the most important single document from that raid that activists must read, by my mentor, Ms. Ida Camburn.
Notes: – Inside out, in the same manner as Hubbard turned Dr William Sargant’s thesis, which he later published as “Battle for the Mind”, inside out and then into Dianetics, a legalized form of highway robbery, written off as ‘belief’ in the Going Clear book and movie.
