    KSW is a must read.
    KSW is enforced as soon as one takes a major course.

    It contains the whole essence of the fanatism LRH implanted in his cult of Scientology and that is to be enforced.

    I read KSW I about a dozen times on my Student Hat. It was my first course, my first service. Couldn't pass the star rate checkout. After the twelth time I got a non standard check out, the guy asked me what the policy was about and I told him. He said I think you understand this very well. I never read KSW I on any course after that.

    Yes, that is the 1st item in a course pack (materials).

    KSW is the CofS creed.

    If a person has disagreements with it then they will be "word cleared" on it.
    If that doesn't work then they will be sent to an ethics officer to "find out" if they are SP or PTS.

    When some people says COS is not abusive at a lower level are wrong.

    To the readers: Read it and make use of your critical thinking; do you wanna be involved in such commitment that is enforced! Does it looks like a cult and a fanatic guru or does it looks like a normal commitment expected from parishioners practicing their religion.???

    And then there is the whole category of PTS who are mainly to categorize those who either don't agree or conform.

    In these categories, are those who are called PTS to the middle class and open minded, psych case, related to Gov agencies, journalists, psych ..etc, and on and on and on..

    In one world a totalitarian cult screening for people to be in total obedience.

    Well, I know that no auditor can get 435 TA per session because even Hubbard couldn't do that. I know, because I watched that student nervously swing the Tone arm left and right as he said, "What are your crimes?"
