This describes one of Hubbard’s most used methods of hypnotic suggestion. A method that clinicians avoid because it’s use creates dependency upon the operator. Authority suggestion is WHY Hubbard had an “LRH Comm” Network to protect his “image”..
He was protecting his “authority” as the “operator” of your trace.
From a 1918 (c) “Suggestion and AutoSuggestion” by William Atkinson.
Suggestions are accepted by persons when given by one or more of three general methods. These methods, you will remember, are:
(1) Suggestion by impression, as by authoritative statements, etc;
(2) Suggestion by inducing the idea in the mind, by insinuation, hint, and other indirect means; and
(3) Suggestion along the lines of association of outward objects, etc, which act both by impressing and inducing the idea in the receptive mind of the person so suggested to.
The suggestions may be considered as being caused by suggestion reaching the individual along several different lines, or channels. For convenience we may divide these channels of suggestion into five classes, viz:

Hubbard’s 2nd most used method was Ad-Hominem, known as demonization… the rarity of discussion of these two by those who have nothing of substance of their own, like Hubbard, is because they have so much to gain by using them.They “work” so well at controlling thinking. Those that use them to deceive would then be revealing themselves..
From The Anderson Report: “Because of the serious risk of harm to the patient, it is only in rare and exceptional circumstances that authoritative hypnosis is resorted to in medical practice.”
“Contrary to general belief, it has been my experience that the more intelligent the subject, the easier it is to induce hypnosis. It is not a sign of a weak character to go quickly into a hypnotic state. Hypnosis is not a struggle or battle of the wills, but a matter of co-operation between two people. Children under three, morons and completely insane people—those, in fact, who cannot consciously co-operate with the hypnotist—are not hypnotisable at all” Ralph Slater, stage hypnotist, played Carnegie Hall from his book, which you can download HERE.

Common Core – After examining a students “common core” textbooks, I had no choice but to assume that the real intent of common core is to create students who no longer trust themselves. If you lose trust in your ability to reason you tend to seek out “authority” to consult. I have noted this conditioned dependence upon authority in the recent escapees from Scientology. Not so much in the old timers who were in when Hubbard ran the fraud, but under the Miscavige regime.
One old friend began relying upon academics, another ex, not a friend, upon published science. If either of these sources had it all right we would not have the problem of mind control to deal with in the first place. And we would not have war. The lesson both miss is than money and politics affects both spheres. The book “Political Ponerology” reveals this fact.
