Memorable Quotes

"In general, one is only right when either wish or fear coincides with reality - we are all capable of believing things which we know to be untrue, and then, when we are finally proved wrong, impudently twist the facts so as to show that we were right. Intellectually, it is possible to carry on this process for an indefinite time: the only check on it is that sooner or later a false belief bumps against the solid reality, usually on a battlefield. George Orwell

"I don't trust a man who talks about ethics when he is picking my pocket. But if he is acting in his own self-interest and says so, I have usually been able to work out some way to do business with him." Robert Heinlein, Lazarus Long in "Time Enough For Love"

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." Johann W. Von Goethe

"There never was a good war, or a bad peace." Benjamin Franklin

"The First Amendment does not allow the state "to reduce the adult reading only what is fit for children." Felix Frankfurter

"The less government we have the better. The antodote to... abuse of formal government is the influence of private character, the growth of the individual." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong that will be imposed on them." Frederick Douglass

"I do this really moronic thing that the government doesn't want me to do. It is called thinking." George Carlin

"Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself." President Jimmy Carter, Aug. 2, 1977

"Parties like or dislike our constitution, just as they are out of power, or in it: Those who are out of power like it, because it gives them the best protection against those who are in power; and those who have been in power have blamed it, for not giving them power enough to oppress all whom they would oppress." Cato's Letters, 1722

"The right to freedom being the gift of God, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave." Samuel Adams

"If you think of yourself as a decent, rational person, and you support the war on drugs, then you are misinformed... either about the war or about your decency and rationality." Ray Aldridge: The WARSTOP pages, April, 1995

"The passing of an unjust law is the suicide of authority." Pastoral Letter of the American Roman Catholic Herarchy, Feb., 1920

"The Earth is degenerating today. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer obey their parents, every man wants to write a book, and it is evident that the end of the world is fast approaching." Assyrian tablet, c. 2800 BC

The Shannon Report

In the mid 70's a man, much like you and I, was approached by someone to buy a copy of Dianetics. Growing suspicious of the amazing claims made for Dianetics, he did something much like you are doing today, by reading this webpage - he decided to authenticate all of the amazing claims made by L Ron Hubbard about his credentials and history, the report itself has now been webbed. I am in the process of webbing the images of the actual correspondence and documents that Mr. Shannon included with his 3" thick "report" that debunks the myth and proves that Scientology still lies to this day, just as L Ron did then, about his history.

At the end of each claim made by Scientology, there are numbers in parenthesis which eventually will all be linked to scans of the actual documents, as of this date (July 14th, 2003) I have added a dozen, but there are many hours of scanning and linking left to do, so bear with me, if there is something you would like to see right away, email me your request and I'll scan and link that page next.

For you and I to have been able to believe the outlandish claims made by Hubbard, and for a hypnotist to be effective, it was necessary to transform Ron into a credible source, worthy of being listened to, in spite of our own good sense. For those of you who swallowed it, this well documented report, may help you to purge yourselves.

Doubt Formula and Refund Demand by 25 year member
Michael Leonard Tilse

"I found on the Internet World Wide Web scanned images and typed text that purported to be the death certificate and the coroner�s investigation report and the results of the toxicology screen of LRH�s blood taken from his body after his death.

I found these documents very disturbing. In fact, if these were true, then David Miscavige and Pat Broker and Ray Mithoff and the others had blatantly LIED to me at the Palladium event in January 1986. LRH�s death was not at all what they had described. And within the contents of these documents were very suspicious events.

I felt that I had to verify for myself the veracity of these specific documents. In February 2003 I traveled to San Luis Obispo California and visited the County Clerk�s office. There I viewed and received a certified copy of the Death Certificate of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard.

I then traveled to the Sheriff�s department of San Luis Obispo County and went to the Detective and Coroner�s department. The Detectives also do Coroner�s investigations. I received copies from their own files of the 1986 Coroner�s investigation and the toxicology report that related to LRH�s death.

They were better copies than what I had found on the web, but were otherwise the same documents."

"The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views.

"The more we insist that the world has no place in our lives, the more we ensure that our lives have no place in the world."
--George Monbiot in The Guardian, London, November 2, 2000

Message from ex-member Arnie Lerma:

Dear Ex-member,

The challenge for those of us who have been hooked, line and sinker, is to bring this to closure and do whatever we must to bring the scales of personal justice back into balance. The operating rule seems to be for each of us to do whatever one is best at, to use whatever gifts one has, to best advantage.

This citizens effort to expose scientology is viable. It won't stop. The one big gift from scientology to ex-members is the gaining of an acute awareness and revulsion to any group, organization, person, or thing that seeks to deceive, manipulate and enslave the minds of men - for profit.

It is up to us, the ex members of scientology to determine if this one lesson, unto itself, was learned well enough.

We certainly had a master of deception as teacher.

We will see if this acute awareness of the techniques of deception - and the price paid by so many - provide sufficient insight and motivation - to undo this as well as other patterns of mental manipulation and control which fester in society like slow growing cancers, feeding upon the goodwill of the trusting and naive...

What those of us who have gained this knowledge, do with that knowledge, will determine if all the years of deception, the broken lives, the lonely parents, the buried bodies, are in fact in the end, worth something.

This is the responsibility of those who have finally breached the real wall of fire.

- deception.

Read Ex-member Bob Penny's "Social Control in Scientology" (offsite)

"The clues were there all along, so it is no surprise that the experience finally reduced itself to absurdity. The wonder is that I wasted 13 years of my life and more than $100,000 before learning to handle the false loyalties and other tricks in which I was enmeshed for so long. Clearly, something was going on that my basic "street education" had not prepared me to deal with. Rationalizations such as, "it's the best thing we've got," and "at least it's moving in the right direction" (neither of which is true) helped perpetuate the stasis. Even afterwards, it was hard to avoid rationalizations like "but I learned a lot," or "the organization sucks but the tech is good" which were attempts to minimize and not really face the harm which had occurred and from which I had yet to recover. The habits of self-censorship, loaded language, avoidance of contrary data, and other thought-stopping mechanisms took a long time to go away if, indeed, they are gone even now."

A Class 12's report [ lots of names and dates ] As stated earlier, Albert Jacquier attempted suicide after attesting OT VII and being denied OT VIII after he'd paid for it and been promised. He became intensely depressed and stated he wanted to die. He fell :from his big Harley motorcycle and badly injured himself. He refused to go to the hospital. Part of his upset was his wife of many years leaving him for another man after she had attested to OT VII. I audited him in his home in Dunedin, Florida. He was very. sour that the church would allow people who had stolen his money to get their services and that no one except his auditors seemed to care. ( by Pierre, a class 12 at Flag)

losing the religion

"I am not condemning one's right to have a religion, to have beliefs, to claim wonderful results from such beliefs, regardless of my own belief that such is the result of indoctrination, I am condemning the fascist tendencies of the Church of Scientology which ultimately stem from Hubbard's own paranoia, the "at war" siege mentality which imposes an environment of oppression on its staff, which causes the OSA to engage in illegal acts, "black ops", in order to squash dissent, because "Scientology is the only hope for mankind". In this regard, Scientology has arrived at the nadir of all religions. When I think about the level of fanaticism that is pervasive in Scientology, the brutality of its forward effort, the zombie-ish uniformity of testimonials on "auditing gains", "wins" etc., I am reminded of the aliens on the X-Files. It is a bit like an Orwellian nightmare. "

Ex Flag Auditor Bruce Hines Interview (Video)

In the book review section of the L.A. Times from Sunday Feb. 10th is an interesting review of a book about a man named Victor Serge who wrote during the early Stalin era. Here is a description of Stalin:

"Stalin, who had no ideas of his own, simply took advantage of each new disaster to discredit and then destroy those true believers who had been caught taking the wrong "line." He was a bureaucratic genius, adept at exploiting divisions among his opponents and promoting rumors of heresy or sabotage. Thus the second form of Stalinization: the crushing of anybody capable of independent thought."

Forde patiently and painstakingly documents the age of each of the volcanoes listed by name in the OT III materials. And what do you know? Most of them didn't exist 75 million years ago, when they were supposedly serving as sites in which to H-bomb those trillions of unhappy galactic citizens into BTs. I cross-checked his references!)

How to get your money back from the IAS [ Carole Letkeman demand letter ] It is outrageous that the money Scientologists donate to the IAS is used against them in the event of their departure from Scientology.

I would never have become a member of an organization that would either intend or withhold such a fact.

Having spent the majority of my adult life being a Scientologist I feel like a kid in a candy store. All of a sudden the world has open up for me. Great literature, different philosophies, art and different cultures are mine to explore. I have never felt closer to my family and I am making new friends. I have learned that Life is a journey, and it is hard at times, but I love this world and I am proud to be part of it again. I feel like a person freed from the ignorance of Scientology. In many ways I feel lucky. Scientology is a huge labyrinth and I made it out. So to those of my friends who are still stuck inside I say this, "There is a future after Scientology, a much better one.""I had come to an entirely erroneous conclusion which shows, my dear Watson, how dangerous it always is to reason from insufficient data." - Arthur Conan Doyle

Declaration of Tara Hattaway : Melanie' very strong advice and pressure was to abort the baby. She had gone on to say that at this point in my life it is better to do the greatest good for all. That spending my life 'clearing the planet' which means basically to get the planet saved from insanity, would be the greatest good, in other words, a far more noble endeavor than leaving staff to raise a child. She went on to tell me that the spirit doesn't enter the baby's body until the baby is born. She made the point that all I would be 'killing' is a piece of meat essentially. We discussed this for a couple of days and she showed me definitions in the L. Ron Hubbard Technical Dictionary to persuade me to have an ABORTION.

Stacy Young about Scientology's Auditing.. Commentary by Ex-Member Monica Pignotti: As someone who has also been through this experience,it is my opinion that you have captured this bizarre experience of going up the bridge that a handful of us have in common better than I would have ever thought possible. I hope that current Scientologists will read this because deep down, each one of them knows that this is what is going on. The message that we have to keep trying to get across is that there is a way out of this unreal nightmare and that they don't have to stay trapped in a world that becomes increasingly more bizarre, the further one progresses on the bridge (or maybe I should say regresses). For those of you who have not yet reached the upper levels, I urge you to read this to see what is in store for you if you continue and to ask yourselves if this is the kind of world you wanted and expected when you began in Scientology. If it isn't, then realize that you do have a choice and that there is life after Scientology. If you take some time out and give thoughtful consideration to Stacy's words, you'll save yourself from having to go through what we went through and that is what makes speaking out worthwhile.

"Kathryn's" Story June 2000

The story I wish to share began almost three years ago in 1996. I did not know it at the time but my saga began eight weeks after Lisa McPherson died on December 5, 1995, in Clearwater, Florida. Several aspects of my story are similar, if not the same as Lisa�s; we both had a Scientologist Doctor, we were given the same vitamin and herb concoctions as well as the Drug Chloral Hydrate, and both of us had complete mental breakdowns including hallucinations. Luckily, there were some aspects that were quite different, especially our endings.

Peter Alexander Recent OT7: I recently posted about an incident last Friday in which an OSA agent taunted me on the streets of Clearwater with confidential information from my PC folder.I should add that during a recent deposition in the Lisa McPherson case,Moxon-the Scientology attorney and a Scientologist himself-repeatedly asked me questions about the contents of my PC folders....

One of the source books that Hubbard used as the mold for "Excalibur", "Dianetics", and "Scientology"

They had nothing but contempt for the wealthy public Scientologists who could be coerced into turning over literally millions of dollars at a time for the sake of defending "the Bridge." They had nothing but contempt for celebrities like John Travolta, whose pc folder information they used to sit around the conference table at Author Services, Inc. and giggle about.

Now available, Arnie Lerma's, Art of deception II

After leaving Scientology in 1999, Greg Barnes writes a summary of his bridge out:

"Yes Scn does work!!!!! It traps individuals into a state of illusion and delusion that for some the only way out is death. For myself and others who have "survived" the delusion and illusion, waking up to that fact is like going through withdrawals. Everyday is like an adventure and a disappointment as well, but being free and able to look at the delusion brings one closer to reality."

I was there picketing Scientology, at the demonstration. We never agreed to hand out Scientology�s flyers, this is a fabrication cut of the same cloth as Scientology itself. The flyers in question try to infer that I am a bomb building Anarchist, as well as a connected to the school mass murders in Colorado. Scientology has in the past tried to paint me as a Fascist, neo-Nazi, Anti-Semite, and let me check here, and a bigot. As a Washington DC native, who attended Western High School in Georgetown before it was called Duke Ellington, and being of Mexican and Italian descent, allow me to set the record straight:

Scientology is like a 19th century seedy carnival side show, whenever someone in the audience would yell out how the trick was done, he would be dragged outside by a couple of toughs stationed there for this purpose, and beaten up, Scientology�s demeanor is identical to this, only in the �civil� 20th century they use lawyers. And then the entire sordid affair is cloaked in bogus religiosity. P T Barnum, the father of the circus, would be proud.

Sleeping Dog Awakes - Put in a life limbo on the basis of an impossible dream. It COULD be done, but with an organization like the Church who are in my view, the most arrogant, twisted and lying bunch of assholes, it would take something like the second coming to wake them up out of their brutal complacency. When are they going to realize?

Confidence - Posted by Xenu - "The registrar is where you get the really hard sell sales pitch.
They'll keep you there for hours breaking you down, telling you how much better the next course will make you feel, how they're trying to create a better world and you can be a part of it, how you're hurting your future if you don't take this course NOW!"

COGNITIONS OF A LIBERATED SCIENTOLOGIST "What gets one addicted to heroin? Long before any physical addiction, there is the rush, the high, the temporary RELEASE from all suffering - emotional or physical, conscious or not. For perhaps the first time, there is no anxiety, no fear, no pain. It's gone! Blissful peace at last! I'm FREE! And freedom tastes of reality!

Dane Tops report: " At events we are constantly told we are growing in numbers. This is not true. The numbers of missions has decreased to almost but not more than half. In LA there are 48,000 inactive Scientologists and 3,000 active. This is the figure of the Financial Police.

Another Anonymous Report: We were promised wonderful living quarters, the finest that Scientology had to offer if we joined the aristocracy. Instead we were given berthing fit for pigs in buildings infested with cockroaches, rotting wood, crumbling plaster, decrepit odorous buildings not fit for the homeless flotsam and jetsam of society.

"Man positively needs general ideas and convictions that will give a meaning to his life and enable him to find his place in the universe.  He can stand the most incredible hardships when he is convinced that they make sense but he is crushed when, on top of all his misfortunes, he has to admit that he is taking part in a 'tale told by an idiot.".  Carl Jung
