"Never discuss Scientology with a critic. Just discuss his or her crimes, known or unknown.
And act completely confident that these crimes exist. Because they do."









Link to The real reason people leave Scientology thread, about Hubbard secretly telling David Mayo (senior Case Supervisor International) and Bill Franks (eventually made Executive Director Int.) that the idea that people leave because of their overts and withholds was false and that, to make a long story short, it (leaving/criticizing = hidden crimes) was a control mechanism. (The implied rationalization, that justified the control mechanism, was that it empowered Scientology and Scientology was the only hope, etc.)

To any lurkers: Suggest considering the above linked thread and its contents, if you're thinking there must be something wrong with you, or you must have hidden (or occluded or even "whole track") crimes, because you've considered leaving Scientology, either physically or mentally.

Note: The linked thread title states that the real reason people leave Scientology is ARC breaks (upsets), which is often the case, but many have left without having ARC breaks (without being upset), and those people left because they chose to leave, and they disagreed because they chose to disagree, and critqued and criticized because they chose to critique and criticize.

Well, the obvious control mechanism here (If you think about leaving, then you are a bad person) is to discourage people who are thinking about leaving from discussing it with others. And let me tell you something right now: I have some very personal and painful experiences with that part.

But, there is another less obvious but equally insidious control mechanism: It reinforces the feeling of superiority of those still inside the bubble. It also helps to isolate them from the defectors. "Jenny left because she was a criminal. And you Jim - you are so much better and smarter than those criminals and wogs."
