The entire 2 hours, Hubbard talks about returning to their various Orgs and whipping them into shape. PUNISHMENT, convening Courts of Ethics, Convening Comm Evs, using ETHICS PRESENCE to smash and subdue. To use Class VIII status to beat them into submission so to speak. This was the year of the original over boarding even for those who could not swim. One Class VIII student got so traumatized that they left the Apollo after being fished out of the ocean.
There is not one word in this entire 2 hour Class VIII lecture coaching on compassion, loyalty, forgiveness, generosity, helping others. Not a word.
There is nothing about Spirituality or the Spiritual nature of a human.
It is only about punishment and dominance and how to do it.
Another knockout punch from Karen #1 to the Church of Scientology!
Seeing (again!) Hubbard's need to force people to obey his whims is revelatory. Hubbard was all about controlling others.
I think most of us who were in didn't understand that anyone could be that selfish.
Controlling others is all about making someone GIVE UP THEIR OWN GOALS.
Thanks Karen #1!
