Censored clips from the Philadelphia Doctorate course

There's been a few videos released on youtube recently featuring audio clips from the Philadelphia Doctorate course (6th Dec 1952). These clips feature Hubbard likening Scientology to George Orwell's 1984, discussing the application of Black Dianetics and commenting that it is easier to get money from someone "on a down spiral into becoming MEST" than from "somebody who is going on an up spiral toward becoming theta." These audio clips were erased from the 1990 re-released version, probably due to their controversial nature.

from tape #20:

"Therefore we really do have the remedy before the assault weapon
is produced. Did you ever read poor old George Orwell's uh.. 1984? Yes, yes, that's wonderful. That would be, could be, the palest imagined shadow of what a world would be like under the rule of the secret use of Scientology with no remedy in existence. Well it's all right in this offhand age to just brush things aside and say, "Well, it's of no importance, no importance, really, and.. let's not be dramatic the way people are being about the atom bomb." Actually the atom bomb isn't as serious as this subject. It's just a MEST weapon. And, it's all right to be very offhand, and very cheerful and so on, and - like the little boy whistling in the dark says, "No ghosts or boogymen exist." - Well, this boogyman does exist. It's a very simple remedy. And that's just make sure that the remedy is passed along. That's all. Don't hoard it. Don't hold it. And if you ever do use any Black Dianetics, use it on the guy who pulled Scientology out of sight and made it so it wasn't available. Because he's the boy who would be electing himself "the new order". We don't need any more new orders - all those orders as far as I'm concerned have been filled."

The cult's version released in 1990 cut ALL OF THAT OUT except this:

"It's a very simple remedy. And that's just make sure that the remedy is passed along. That's all. Don't hoard it. Don't hold it. "

"You can get a much better fee — I tell you as auditors quite frankly — it's much easier to get a great deal of money out of somebody who's on a down spiral into becoming MEST than it is to get money out of somebody who is going on an up spiral toward becoming theta."

Interesting edit. Hubbard was originally pretty forthcoming about how Scientology could be used to dominate or harm people. He was still conniving, though, because he didn't want to equate Dianetics with hypnosis. Either this was because he didn't understand what hypnosis was (induction of a trance), or because he did, and didn't want people to know that's what he was doing. I do understand the idea that Dianetics can be used to access repressed, unfulfilled intentions and resolve them, and thus might be understood as reversing post-hypnotic suggestions, where "engrammic" experiences are considered hypnotic in effect, but Dianetics most certainly is NOT the opposite of hypnosis.
