Introuduction

Hello , I am an ex Scientologist , this blog is primarily about that but I may address other topics as the mood hits me to . I was in Scientology for 25 years and spent about 10,000 hours using the indoctrination and thought reform method "study tech " . I also spent time on staff and met hundreds of Scientologists and did hundreds of the cult practices . Many were the "ethics cycles and OW writeups " that really are an attempt to suppress or remove a person's identity and replace it with a mental pseudo clone of Ron Hubbard . To make a fanatical slave for the cult .

I looked outside the cult for answers in about January 2014 and left the cult in about March of 2014 . While in about 99% of members have no idea of the truth .

We are told we are in a mental therapy or spiritual enhancement or religion or science for helping people unlock potential . Or any of several other fronts that all pretend kind and humanitarian goals .

The truth is Scientology is a terrorist mind control cult and this blog is my attempt to understand and expose that . And try to state as clearly as possible the tools that I have found helpful in dealing with this .

Escaping Scientology - Overcoming Crushing Certainty

Scientology has such a reversal of reality that things they consider negative actually are positive often. You don't know it until after you leave and disengage from Scientology thinking to a significant extent, sometimes over decades.
A few examples, getting declared suppressive is treated as ruining your life and a disgrace while in but often leads to someone escaping Scientology because they gain contact with information from outside the cult. Leaving the Sea Org is treated as a disgrace and rock solid proof you are a degraded being by Scientologists and often a source of deep humiliation and shame for people in Scientology but often saves you from psychological and physical degradation. It also makes you ineligible for staff, which gives you a better chance to get established in an outside job. I was briefly in the Sea Org which turned out to be good in the very long run because it left me disqualified for staff so I eventually had to find steady work outside of staff and the Sea Org which lead to something crucial for me leaving Scientology. I got a job at a regular company with no Scientologists and realized I had to translate everything I was thinking into normal English to talk to people and was translating everything they said to Scientology terms to receive it.
I realized this was slowing my communication down and thought it was like growing up speaking Spanish and translating everything to English and back. I decided for efficiency at work to try to just think , speak and receive communication in English, after all thinking in Spanish or English shouldn't change the truth of what you think.
So, I started thinking in English and over several months my thinking started shifting and then my feelings started shifting and my ideas started to unravel. Things I took for granted as true for decades starting to bit by bit become uncertain. I started realizing different assumptions that were deeply held weren't supported by evidence or were in fact false.
I ended up realizing for example that an assumption I made when I was first entering Scientology was false. I assumed that a person couldn't be covertly influenced against their will by books or words over time. I thought the false dichotomy of "if someone could covertly and insidiously influence people with a book or tape then they would rapidly take over the world and enslave everyone or recruit everyone into one monolithic and inescapable group, therefore covert influence doesn't exist." The problem of course with this false dichotomy is it assumes influence must be absolutely perfect and instantly irresistible or nothing at all. In truth subtle and slight influence is all around us and usually produces effects so slight we don't notice them.
So, Scientology or other efforts to influence people have a vast number of factors that determine if they are effective, to what degree, on which people and for how long. We could go over books and experiments on social psychology, cognitive dissonance theory, propaganda analysis, logic, history, evolution and far more to explore this and realize it's incredibly complex but the truth is covert influence is possible, particularly if time permits repetition and other methods to be used on a subject over a long period.
That realization was regarding a different method of influence but it made me highly anxious for a reason I didn't understand immediately as it disrupted my long held assumptions regarding my inability to be influenced. It took a long time for that to affect my conscious thinking on Scientology. I had an uneasy feeling, a kind of wobbly and reeling feeling of not knowing if I was coming or going, like I unexpectedly lost my balance somehow and couldn't quite get it back.
I also realized people are responsible as individuals for their choices regardless of any group or philosophy or religion they belong to. I thought of this regarding something unrelated to Scientology directly.
Those two key realizations hadn't occurred in decades prior because I was at first immersed in Scientology then thinking in Scientology terms and reinforcing the indoctrination over and over thousands of times by believing the terms were true and proving each other by thinking them and since hundreds are defined by one another in webs of interconnected lies I was reinforcing all the terms over and over. Orwell described this well in the definition of double think from the appendix to 1984. It's the process of thinking of the term knowing it's true meaning, denying it, knowing its false meaning and asserting it each time it's thought of and denying or even dissociating from the truth to assert the lie, making it more automatic to think this way and more automatic to deny the truth by repetition of this thinking.
So, by thinking in Scientology terms for decades I made it almost impossible to think thoughts outside the Scientology framework of reality. It seemed absurd and difficult to comprehend and emotionally upsetting to think outside the Scientology view and physically painful, literally causing headaches to think thoughts in conflict with Scientology doctrine and terms.
Only after forcing myself to think in English for many months did something interesting happen. One day I realized something was just not right in my life, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I realized I had a good job, wife I love, kids I love, pretty good health and finances yet I was somehow unhappy or uneasy about...something I couldn't put my finger on.
I decided to carefully look at my life and see if there was something I wasn't handling or that could  be the cause of my unease. I at first made a mental inventory of different things, including my marriage, relationships with my kids, job and hobbies and interests and thought of Scientology. I thought that Scientology couldn't be the problem. I thought it was the easiest thing to deal with since I knew it was not the source of anything negative. I had made that mental appraisal many times before. It was automatic from doing Scientology indoctrination and ethics conditions hundreds of times.
I then did something different, something only possible because I hadn't been thinking in Scientology terms for a year or so and had discovered that subtle hidden influence was possible and I was responsible for my choices regardless of any beliefs, no matter what they were or who they came from. I realized I was assuming Scientology couldn't be the cause of anything negative and was skipping actually looking at it and had done it so subtly it was first nature and something I had done for many years.
This gave me pause and I decided to actually take a look at Scientology. After all, if I was off base I could confirm it and be reassured and move onto looking at other things. I thought it's probably nothing I will just look at Scientology to be thorough and if it's fine I can read Scientology books and listen to lectures and feel how I used to when I was doing Scientology courses all the time again.
So I reluctantly started to look for answers regarding Scientology. First just little things like neutral information on the size and image of Scientology. That showed lots of criticism, a shocking amount. But I could write that off as lies. Okay, now for information from Scientology to give me answers.
That is where the real trouble emerged or exploded. The Posse Of Lunatics story was available online. It was definitely from Scientology, so I couldn't dismiss it as lies from outsiders.
It portrayed the Sea Org as full of incompetent and bumbling criminals who rose to upper management and undetected bungled their way through the highest reaches of Scientology for decades like the Three Stooges.
But this didn't conform to Hubbard's claims. Hubbard claimed his technology was infallible and took beings into states so high no one and nothing could strike you down and further he claimed his administration technology was magic and could make an organization invincible and able to survive and succeed against any challenge.
So between his auditing and training providing perfect understanding of people and personal abilities like telepathy, telekinesis, remote viewing or astral projection and precognition and his administration technology giving the secrets to group success and the Sea Org technology giving the keys to running a planet, Scientology should have been far too capable and far too competent to get fooled by the Posse Of Lunatics, particularly as Scientology executives in the Sea Org and particularly for years.
The only plausible explanation was that the Sea Org lacked OTs because otherwise they would have easily detected and handled the Lunatics long before they became executives, probably very early in their Scientology careers.
So, by their own portrayal Scientology was painted as victims of very human beings. This meant Scientology was without OTs running the Sea Org. It was inescapable to me. That meant there must NEVER have been OTs because an army of demigods as Hubbard portrayed them couldn't possibly be defeated by humans in just a few decades, it's absurd. He must have never made OTs at all, which meant he was completely wrong because he asserted the difference between Scientology and other groups was results. If you don't get the primary result you rest your reputation on then all the claims you tie to that reputation need strong reevaluation and examination.
I realized with the claims of OTs completely invalidated that there had to be no clears too and then that throws out the reactive mind and tone scale and engrams because all these concepts are defined by and allegedly proven by one another. With no proof of the OTs or clears then Scientology and Dianetics don't have a leg to stand on. I ended up at the Underground Bunker blog  and reading the Scientology Mythbusting series by Jon Atack and several articles by him like Never Believe A Hypnotist to understand why Scientology seemed to hold results but actually is just a complex con.
I of course read a lot more with dozens of books and exchanged hundreds of comments, etc in trying to untangle from Scientology.
But without the benefit of having left the Sea Org and being forced to work outside Scientology and being forced to interact in a Scientology free environment where thinking like a normal person was obviously beneficial I possibly would never have had the slow shift to gradually having independent and critical thinking resurface, even if it was only momentarily for a thought every few months. A few key thoughts was what it took to prime me to look at Scientology then realize looking required looking and not assuming then realizing I had been assuming for a long time.
Then I made a conscious effort to not assume, because crucially I understood covert long term influence was possible, I and not Hubbard or Scientology or anything else made my decisions and I had been blindly assuming Scientology could do no wrong for decades without even seeing it.
That mindset was necessary for me to be ready to see the problems with the Posse Of Lunatics story.
That is why the prison of the mind is so insidious and pernicious and persistent. The prisoner creates it with their own thoughts and doesn't see it at all and has to take apart the exact right things in the exact right sequence to escape.
It's rigged to use your own blindspots which you create regarding yourself, so you never even see what needs to be unmocked to start your journey out.
It reminds me of what Harriet Tubman said (well Snopes actually rated this claim false, but it's a good quote regardless of who did say it) “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
It's knowing you are wrong or could be fooled that is the ultimate obstacle to overcome. Unshakable certainty and inexorable confidence are the foundation of the prison of the mind. It's that foundation that must be destroyed by the individual who is subject to influence and deception to escape the prison but it's often invisible to the person, until it's not.

Scientology Antisemitism "Jewish Bankers" conspiracy theory

Scientology founder Ron Hubbard had demonstrated significant antisemitism in his writings:


On the Jewish race:

"On further living I found that only those who sought only peace were ever butchered. The thousands of years of Jewish passivity earned them nothing but slaughter."


L. Ron Hubbard HCOPL ETHICS, THE DESIGN OF 7 December 1969
“Now it’s of peculiar interest to an Arab country that there is a company and a certain set of bankers who also finance the World Federation of Mental Health. …and we see that although the KGB and so forth seems to be associated with the World Federation of Mental Health, their other organization in action seems to go back to Jewish Bankers.”
–L. Ron Hubbard, Aides Conference, “Covert Operations”, 2 November 1969
“Furthermore, [Sigmund Freud] had a racial fixation on sex, a fixation sufficiently pronounced to cause it to infect contagiously all modern European stock.”
–L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 92, “A Critique of Psychoanalysis”, 10 July 1956

L. Ron Hubbard doesn't mention Jews and Judaism often in his lectures and writings (so far in what the editors have read) but on this occasion he seems to embrace one of the most common and widespread antisemitic myths in the world. In the rambling Aides Conference [offsite] of 2 November 1969 concerning "Covert Operations", he believes "Jewish bankers" are funding his enemies.
Note: H.E.C. = "Hubbard Explorational Company Ltd., a front group created in 1966 to provide a cover for the activities of the Sea Org. Its stated object was to 'explore oceans, seas, lakes, rivers and waters, land and buildings in any part of the world and to seek for, survey, examine and test properties of all kinds.' The vagueness was of course deliberate."
Now, some other factor entered the situation when we started functioning around in the Mediterranean area, or in Europe. Apparently they became somewhat panic stricken at the tremendous amount of money and knowhow [sic] that was flooding into England because we were there. Alright, they took action to make sure that didn't happen. Okay. We were helping out Spain and all of a sudden — not we, the old company, it was the H.E.C. [see note] And the H.E.C. at that time was doing surveys of business potential and bases for schools and activities. This is the truth. Alright. They prevented about two million quid a year from going into Spain. But we were okay till we did that. We were yakked at a little bit but nothing really happened, which I think is fascinating, nothing really happened to us — snarled at, yes, but ah no problem, and all of a sudden a lot of money was liable to come into Spain or it was beginning to come into Spain and instantly our throats were cut and then the second we pulled that out why we were okay again. But a pressure was kept up so we wouldn't do further business in Spain. We went to Greece, the ship went to Greece, and they started to put in a mission which was going to bring in a lot of money and a lot of tourists and a lot of travel tours and so forth, all kinds of things would have happened and we were doing a business survey at that time in Greece and the people in that particular areas were beginning to take hope because there was ways and means of settling it industrially, remember? When we got that going this covert operation stopped up, bang, cut our throats. Now all of a sudden we are starting to operate in Morocco and what do we find? One of these guys shows up. But the first guy that showed up in Greece was not really a reporter, he was a sort of a freelance [The Jack Lundin affair [offsite]]. He just cased the situation to see how it was happening so they could then send in some heavy artillery see. Bang, this becomes very fascinating because a lot of administrative know-how is needed by Africa, we're actually organizing donation contributions, an American foundation and it's going to work in conjunction with Morocco. We're going to show them real down to earth administration, form a pattern of it, fix it up so more money comes in and wham, one of these guys shows up. Right away he's also shown up along lines where he's got false reports, false newspaper articles, big — maybe the newspaper article is actually a photostat, but the story in the first place was false. So what has happened here, there is a common denominator to what is going on that hasn't too much to do with us: where we go it's a proven fact money follows — it's not small money, it's big money. Four times now these birds have acted. So what is this? Look, nothing happens to us after we desist. After the old H.E.C. desisted in each one of these instances and ceased to push things into the country, nothing after that happened to them. Now this company, nothing is happening to this company right up to the moment when it all of a sudden starts to form a financial channel into Morocco. So I believe there are three or fours sides to this coin. I believe it has to do with cultural degradation of the country. I don't believe they intend these countries to have their balance of payments come out right. Now it's of peculiar interest to an Arab country that there is a company and a certain set of bankers who also finance the World Federation of Mental Health. And we're running these leads down now. But one of them is Loeb Kuhn, the big Jewish investment firm. What the hell is this all about? You're here in this covert operation, we all of a sudden look up and we see that although the KGB and so forth seems to be associated with the World Federation of Mental Health, their other organization in action seems to go back to Jewish Bankers. We make no sense out of this but it's just as far as we have gone, do you follow? So they have fish to fry of some kind or another.
These "Jewish Bankers" appear similar to the enemies that Hubbard identified in Ron's Journal 67 (still part of Scientologists' training), which in turn, sound similar to "The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion [offsite]":
"The Scientology religion is based exclusively upon L. Ron Hubbard's research, writings and recorded lectures —
all of which constitute the Scriptures of the religion"
With all of this action being taken against us in the last seventeen years, I found, after the southern African matter, that it was vitally necessary that I isolate who it was on this planet who was attacking us. The attacks were always of the same pattern; they always followed the same newspaper routes; they always used the same type of parliamentary member; and I thought that I had better look into this very thoroughly.
The organization, under the direction of Mary Sue, actually before I returned from southern Africa, employed several professional intelligence agents who had long and successful professional backgrounds, and they looked into this matter for us. The results of their activities, although still in progress, have told us all that we needed to know with regard to any enemy we had on this planet. Our enemies on this planet are less than twelve men. They are members of the Bank of England and other higher financial circles. They own and control newspaper chains, and they are, oddly enough, in all the mental health groups which have sprung up in the world. These chaps are very interesting fellows. They have fantastically corrupt backgrounds; illegitimate children; government graft; a very unsavory lot. And they apparently, sometime in the rather distant past, had determined on a course of action. Being in control of most of the gold supplies of the planet, they entered upon a program of bringing every government to bankruptcy and under their thumb, so that no government would be able to act politically without their permission.
MYTH #2: Jews control the banks, media, Hollywood, and even the U.S. government; Jews have a secret plot to take over the world
Where does it come from?
Anti-Semites point to “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion” as proof of a Jewish conspiracy to dominate world political and economic sectors as well as media. This proven forgery, written by agents of the Russian czar in the late 19th century, claims to be the minutes of a secret meeting of Jews that details plans of Jewish leaders to rule the world. The proven forgery spread throughout the 20th century and continues to this day to promote the stereotype that the Jews own the banks and control the media.

Scientology Racism - Can The Cult Deny It ?

Can the Church Deny It?

Church dogma demands a slavish devotion to its founder L. Ron Hubbard, whose sentiments appear racist to modern sensibilities but were common in white society during most of his life. Racial attitudes have changed greatly over time — in fact, modern anthropological theory denies the existence of "race" [offsite] altogether. Hubbard's prejudices, however, are forever codified in Source, i.e., they are sacred, immutable doctrine. Hence, Scientology is inherently racist, as the following collection of scriptural quotes illustrates.
                
A basic component of the Church's services is auditing (counseling sessions). Through a progression of special auditing actions for specific purposes, called rundowns [offsite], Scientologists can advance their spiritual condition. But Hubbard has a Big Auditing Problem with native South Africans, who, along with other "primitives" and children, are in a "retrograded" state:
The South African native is probably the one impossible person to train in the entire world — he is probably impossible by any human standard.

–L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 119, 1 September 1957, as published in Level 0 PABS (c.1968, The American St. Hill Organization).
Natives need the help of white men to explain how to care for their possessions, including their land. Hubbard scolds South Africa for not properly attending to native education:
As long as a white foreman is there, they will prevent soil erosion; but the moment that a white foreman turns his back — boo! There goes the whole program.
And you finally get up to the point of where he's [native] supposed to take care of something, a lesson which has never been taught to the native of South Africa.

–L. Ron Hubbard, 15thACC (Power of Simplicity) lecture "Education: Point of Agreement", 30 Oct 1956.
Hubbard also finds that the "insanity rate per capita in South Africa is appalling" and issues a special set of instructions, The Scientific Treatment of the Insane, for South African auditors to address the problem. Note that Hubbard also thinks the Bantu are in need of "rehabilitation", with mental health being only one of the necessary efforts.
The insanity rate per capita in South Africa is appalling. …it is easily seen that a primary requisite in any programme of the rehabilitation of the Bantu in South Africa would be mental health…

–L. Ron Hubbard, HCOBApril 1960, "The Scientific Treatment of the Insane"
The South African Rundown, the only Scientology rundown targeted at a specific ethnic group, was developed for "delivery to South Africans—those who reside in South Africa as well as those who have emigrated to other parts of the world". Hubbard apparently feels that they required special processing because they are "untrainable" and "insane".
The Church's auditing tool, the E-meter, requires adjustment in order to accommodate the needle's larger movements because of the intensity of a black South African'sundisclosed transgressions ("withholds").
A "black South African's" withholds read not only on the needle [of the E-meter] alone but on the Tone Arm [sensitivity adjustment] as well.

–L. Ron Hubbard, E-Meter Essentials, section I: "Meter Oddities", 1988 (pg. 24)
Perhaps the unusually strong withholds can be explained by the Bantu's mercenary nature:
Because the one thing — the very, very commercial little culture the Bantu has … the idea of commerce and money and that sort of thing is very deeply ingrained in these people.

–L. Ron Hubbard, SHSBC, "Errors in Time", 18 July 1963
Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought, one of Scientology's basic public texts, says this about "African savages":
Image is a comic book African warrior
…the African tribesman, with his complete contempt for truth and his emphasis on brutality and savagery for others but not for himself, is a no-civilization.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought,Bridge Publications: Los Angeles, 1997.
The reason that Africans feel barbarous is because of their numerous overts [glossary] that have resulted from being exposed to a "fantastic amount of space opera [glossary]" and a hostile environment.
[Y]ou'll find in Africans a fantastic amount of heavy space opera and so on, going on … which makes the colored African very, very interesting to process because he doesn't know why he goes through all these dances … and why he feels so barbarous ….

–L. Ron Hubbard, 1st Melbourne ACC, lecture "Principal Incidents on the Track", 27 November 1959.
In Hubbard's view, people have to be trained to be "governable" in order to become civilized and deserve independence. He suggests that this was the problem in Cameroon, undergoing internal strife on its way to independence from France and England, because there was no one there to "give civilization to".
They took people who were totally dedicated to certain tribal procedures … and said, "You're free." And they said, "Free. Free? Free. Ah! You mean there's no police anymore." Boom! Boom!

–L. Ron Hubbard, State of Man Congress, Opening lecture, 1 January 1960.
According to Hubbard, Zulus are crazy:
…the Zulu is only outside the bars of a madhouse because there are no madhouses provided by his tribe. … primitives are far more aberrated than civilized peoples. Their savageness, their unprogressiveness, their incidence of illness …

–L. Ron Hubbard, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health,Bridge Publications, Los Angeles, 1995.
The Church runs security checks on members suspected of certain criminal behaviors. TheJohannesburg Security Check is "the roughest security check in Scientology" and consists of a series of pointed questions which Scientologists answer while on the E-meter (in this case, used more like a lie detector than an auditing tool). Included in the list of "crimes" is engaging in an intimate relationship with a member of a "colored" race. A selected portion of the questions demonstrates the seriousness of this crime:
Have you ever slept with a member of a race of another color?
Have you ever committed culpable homicide?
Have you ever bombed anything?
Have you ever murdered anyone?
Have you ever kidnapped anyone?

–L. Ron Hubbard, HCOPL 7 April 1961, "Johannesburg Security Check"
There are hints that Scientology membership was limited to whites, at least initially, in their organizations in southern Africa. In the first quote below, Hubbard is concerned about the World Bank taking control of England and the general advance of Communism. He believes astronghold of civilization [outlink] can be set up in Africa to salvage white society. In the second quote, Hubbard praises the South African organization, that, in spite of the limited white population from which to recruit, managed to outproduce all other Scientology organizations.
Now if we can get white population, immigrants and big companies and so on moving into Africa and if we can get with that Scientology well established in Southern Africa, why we can then look forward to a salvage operation base, in case the northern hemisphere's lights go out.

–L. Ron Hubbard, recorded talk to the Saint Hill staff about Rhodesia, 6 May 1966
As South Africa has a white population of only 2.8 million or thereabouts, you can see that every other central organization in the world has been out-created.

–L. Ron Hubbard, HCOB 17 July 1959, "Africa over the Top"
Hubbard sought to create a Scientology homeland in South Africa or Rhodesia (Zimbabwe). The Church claims it opposed the white minority governments (most of its activity in the early years took place in colonial states where whites ruled and English was the official language: England, United States, Australia, South Africa, Rhodesia). Hubbard, however, appears to have thought the problem of apartheid was overstated.
The problem of South Africa is different than the world thinks. There is no native problem. The native worker gets more than white workers do in England! […] The South African government is not a police state. It's easier on people than the United States government!

–L. Ron Hubbard, HCOB 10 October 1960, "Current News"

It is considered in England and the United States that the Government of South Africa is altogether too harsh with its native peoples. It is sadly humorous to notice that the native in South Africa, however, holds an exactly reverse opinion and the fault he finds with the South African Government is that it is far too lenient in its administration of laws throughout the native populace.

–L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 96, "Justice", 15 September 1956
One reason Hubbard was attracted to Rhodesia was his admiration for Cecil Rhodes; he even claimed to have been Rhodes in a previous life. Rhodes originated the racist land grabs in South Africa, suggesting that "we must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labour that is available from the natives of the colonies".
Hubbard's expertise in handling the natives, who were a great resource that was not "well utilised at all", was probably a continuation of his former lifetime's experience.
For instance, my boy Jamble … I used to tell him "yes, I know Jamble — you're a good boy even though you do drink and smoke dacca and gamble — that has nothing to do with me, you're still a good boy" and you know he came way up tone arm. I noticed he drank less and I think he stopped smoking dacca entirely but he didn't stop gambling because Master used to give him a pound to go out to the race track and lose.
… tremendous labour supply in the Bantu, the Mshombe, the Matabele, these people are very hard-working people and under proper direction are quite productive. … and here is this perfectly valid labour supply — the African, who at this time is not being well utilised at all; …

–L. Ron Hubbard, Conference with the Guardian, 18 July 1966
But they served with great enthusiasm. Those people sure can work. The African sure can work. That's one thing nobody has ever quite noticed about them. They are veryhard-working people.

–L. Ron Hubbard, "About Rhodesia", lecture given on 19 July 1966
Hubbard praises the South African government's handling of the Johannesburg slums:
Photo of a South African township
Having viewed slum clearance projects in most major cities of the world may I state that you have conceived and created in the Johannesburg townships what is probably the most impressive and adequate resettlement activity in existence.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Letter to South African Prime Minister Dr. H.F. Verwoerd, 7 November 1960, Johannesburg; reprinted in part in G.P.C. Kotzé, Inquiry into the Effects and Practices of Scientology [outlink], 1972
Hubbard has few reservations in supporting the apartheid government and, in fact, callsHendrick Verwoerd [offsite] a "great guy". He suggests ways that the Church could serve the apartheid agenda, for instance, using e-meters to interrogate suspects and to uncover agent provacateurs. "Clean them up and the riots collapse." In Hubbard's world, the deplorable conditions of non-white citizens did not give rise to the protests, instead, it was outside agitators (usually Communists) who were to blame — a view in alignment with the government's.
Hubbard sees indigenous people as carefree "natives" dancing in the jungle, or agitators trying to overthrow the colonial government because they haven't been properly primed for civilization.
Illiterate cultures do not survive and they are not very high. The natives of the tribe of the Bugga Bugga Booga Boogas down in Lower Bugga Wugga Booga Woog are mostly no longer with us, or they are around waving red flags today and revolting against their central government.
And they didn't learn fast. Their literacy was not up to absorbing culture rapidly.
They've been very happily down amongst the bong-bong trees, you know, dancing up and down amongst the bong-bong trees, and the highest level of their interest and so forth was their own back yard.

Hubbard invokes the "N-word":
You shouldn't be scrubbing the floor on your hands and knees. Get yourself a nigger; that's what they're born for.

–L. Ron Hubbard, in a letter to first wife, Polly Grubb
Hubbard describes the spiritual state of blacks:
Image is caricature of Negro wearing a hat, looking over a fence
Actually, have you ever noticed how a Negro, in particular down south, where they're pretty close to the soil, personifies MEST? The gatepost and the wagon and the whip and anything around there—a hat. They talk to them, you know. "What'sa mattuh wi' you hat?" They imbue them with personality.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Therapy section of Technique 80("Route to Infinity" tapes), Part I, a lecture given on 21 May 1952
You can hear this quote in Hubbard's own voice at Operation Clambake [offsite].
Hubbard disparages other "colors", too:
Unlike yellow and brown people, the white does not usually believe he can get attention from matter or objects.

The white goes further. He often believes he can get attention only from whites and that yellow and brown people's attention is worthless. Thus the yellow and brown races are not very progressive, but, by and large, saner.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology: The Fundamentals of Thought,Bridge Publications: Los Angeles, 1997.
Hubbard on Indians:
Now we say there's, well, another place in the world—there's India. Wonderful place — except for its people.

–L. Ron Hubbard, "The Control of Hysteria" (lecture), 15 April 1957.
Hubbard says that "there's nothing between me and the Arab races at all. As a matter of fact, I like Arabs."
In North Africa they had the Arab with the gun and whip, but he could force people to do things … and he accomplished a tremendous amount of extermination, but he certainly didn't advance that civilization very much.

–L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 119, 1 September 1957, as published in Level 0 PABS (c.1968, The American St. Hill Organization)
He's [the Arab] been going crazy steadily and gradually ever since he lost the early very fertile basins of the Middle East. He's been going crazy ever since he failed to learn wheat farming and brought about the erosion of all of the fertile areas of the Middle East.
This race has been going for a very, very long time and has been eating death for a very long time and it is death. … They have eaten death too long and now they bring death to the things they touch.
Image is a caricature of an angry, bearded Arab brandishing a sword
The Arab is to a point where he won't even follow a decent leader. He's got to have a man of blood, a man of cruelty, exaggeration and bigotry. Then he'll follow him.
…the Arab is trying to be pleased with death and murder and mayhem and disease and poverty and political unrest.

–L. Ron Hubbard, 20th Advanced Clinical Course, "Case Analysis—Rock Hunting", lecture of 4 August 1958
Hubbard on Egyptians (and French):
Those small brown men who sell their sisters on the streets of Cairo were once the mighty Egyptians.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Ability,issue 56, October 1957, quoted in Winning ("News Journal of the Office of Special Affairs") vol.1, iss.3, 1997
Ostensibly there is little antisemitism in Hubbard's works, but on the rare mention of Jews, he upholds common antisemitic myths. What's more, he subscribed to the Spotlightnewspaper published by Willis Carto, "perhaps the most influential professional anti-Semite in the United States" (-Anti-Defamation League).
Hubbard suggests the worldwide conspiracy against him and Scientology can be tracked back to the "Jewish bankers" who are funding his arch enemy, the World Federation of Mental Health.
Now it's of peculiar interest to an Arab country that there is a company and a certain set of bankers who also finance the World Federation of Mental Health. …and we see that although the KGB and so forth seems to be associated with the World Federation of Mental Health, their other organization in action seems to go back to Jewish Bankers.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Aides Conference, "Covert Operations", 2 November 1969
Another fairly common antisemitic notion that Hubbard embraces is that an obsession with sex is a natural characteristic of the Jewish "race".
Image is a German antisemitic cartoon of lecherous Jewish man trying to entice an Aryan girl
Furthermore, [Sigmund Freud] had a racial fixation on sex, a fixation sufficiently pronounced to cause it to infect contagiously all modern European stock.

–L. Ron Hubbard, PAB No. 92, "A Critique of Psychoanalysis", 10 July 1956




(My additional quote )"On further living I found that only those who sought only peace were ever butchered. The thousands of years of Jewish passivity earned them nothing but slaughter."


L. Ron Hubbard HCOPL ETHICS, THE DESIGN OF 7 December 1969
Hubbard voices concern about the U.S. pulling out of Viet Nam and how ANZO (Australia/New Zealand/Oceania) would stand alone to face the threat of Communism, which, in Hubbard's view, was part of the psychiatric conspiracy to rule (and ruin) the planet. Apparently Hubbard is dismayed at the prospect of an influx of Asians into Scientology in the area, if their attention was diverted from war with the Americans.
This is the only way I know of to keep Anzo from being deluged with Asiatic hordes.

–L. Ron Hubbard, HCOInformation Letter, "Anzo Supplement", 17 February 1969
Hubbard's opinion of Japanese:
Japanese is a baby talk — very, very hard to read, very, very, easy to talk. … A very faint kind of language.

–L. Ron Hubbard, New Slant on Life, Bridge Publications, 1997.
One of the reasons they [the Japanese] have bad eyesight is probably these microscopic characters[furigana] which have many lines and strokes to them. … We wonder why they went mad and bombed Pearl Harbor when they knew they couldn't win. That [the Japanese language] would be a reason.

–L. Ron Hubbard, "The Part Played by the Analytical Mind" (lecture), 19 July 1950 (as quoted by Anthony Roberts in ana.r.s. post)
Image is a Japanese caricature from World War II propaganda
There is no madder nation than Japan. … And that nation has the highest rate of suicide, has the highest rate of thick-lens glasses and did the most suicidal trick a few years ago. It's the doggonedest country.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Perception of Truth, part 2: "Logics 1-7", a lecture given on 10 November 1952.
Hubbard taught school on Guam for one month when he was a young man. The island's native population, the Chamorros, made an impression upon him:
… gooks … really more or less savage at heart.

–L. Ron Hubbard, personal diary, June-July 1927
Hubbard regards the Chinese as "subhuman".
When this government [Chiang Kaishek's] finally fell there was no one ready to teach the Chinese the human way of life.

–L. Ron Hubbard, The Dianetic Auditor's Bulletin, Vol. 2, No. 1, "Education and the Auditor", July 1951
…China, slavishly dedicated to ancient scholars, incapable of generating within herself sufficient rulers to continue, without bloodshed, a nation.

–L. Ron Hubbard, Fundamentals of Thought, Chapter "Causation and Knowledge", Section "Civilization and Savagery", page 113-114, 1997.
You can put these things into the hands of some Chinese and send him to Hong Kong and we'll have cleared chinks.

The very nature of the Chinaman holds him back. If his fellow should fall, John thinks it quite proper that he stamp on the underdogs face.

-L. Ron Hubbard, Ron Letters and Journals [offsite], "Early Years of Adventure [offsite]" (Asia Diaries, 1927-1929)
Image is a caricature of a Chinese man carrying a washboard and sack of money
When it comes to the Yellow Races overruning the world, you may laugh … [The Chinese] have neither the foresight or endurance to overrun any white country in any way except by intermarriage. One American marine could stand off a great many yellowmen without much effort.

-L. Ron Hubbard, personal journal (Asia Diaries, 1927-1929) as quoted by Russell Miller in Bare-Faced Messiah [outlink]page 42 [outlink].
A Chinaman can not live up to a thing, he always drags it down.
They smell of all the baths they didn't take. The trouble with China is, there are too many chinks here.
