I really don’t think it was. It isn’t perfect, and they did not perfect it. It is inherently flawed; but it’s what command intention gives them. They used it, as imperfect and evil as it was. As Arnie Lerma would say, if Scientology’s black PR tech was perfect, we wouldn’t be here.
And when they turn their black PR skill or tech on their wog victims? Some people probably find that amusing. Doubtlessly Miscavige does. And the Independent Scientologists don’t stand up for Marty’s victims when he or their fellow Scientologists black PR them.
I’m not a critic, and Gerry isn’t a critic. Obviously some people in the critics group even attack Rathbun’s victims. I think mobilizing a force to black PR critics is your idea, not mine.
I also did not claim that Rathbun and Rinder’s long history of black PRing the Scientologists’ victims; or R & R’s training in black PR; or even that Hubbard’s (to say nothing of Miscavige’s) command intention for Scientologists is to black PR these same victims, is evidence that anyone is black PRing/attacking/fair gaming critics or mobilizing a force to do so. These facts are evidence of the continuingness of the black PR, fair game, torts and crimes, but the evidence of present black PR, etc. is something else.
There is evidence that the Independent Scientologists, in which Rathbun is indisputably a leader, are black PRing his victims. So is he, of course. Since he is a leader, and since command intention is Scientology tech, it is his command intention that the troops (that is, his troops, not someone else’s) also black PR the same victims in the same way.
See for example, Gerry’s response to a black PR salvo from Marty’s Scientologists and Marty: http://www.gerryarmstrong.ca/archives/5. Also see Gerry’s July 12, 2009 response to Rathbun (then calling himself “Sitting Bull”) regarding Rathbun’s “Scientology spectrum.” http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/archives/3312.
Obviously Gerry occupies and represents what Rathbun calls “The extreme, rebellious far left of the Scientology spectrum.” Rathbun says this group is occupied “those who would not be satisfied until every last word of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard was forever destroyed,” but that is just black PR.
There is no such group as “the extreme, rebellious far left of the Scientology spectrum” that “is occupied by those who would not be satisfied until every last word of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard was forever destroyed.” There is no such “Scientology spectrum.” No Scientologist I have seen has challenged Rathbun on his spectrum or the people he’s populated with it. This is evidence of a command intention at cause.
Critically, Rathbun has in mind real human beings with real names whom he postulates onto one of the ends of his extremity of his invention; and those human beings are the Suppressive Person class, the people who tell the truth about Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard. These are the people whose evil Rathbun essentially equates with Miscavige’s evil. That’s black PR.
The people who tell the truth about Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard are the people Rathubn and his troops call the “haters.” That’s black PR.
And after Rathbun and his troops get rid of Miscavige (off his point of power to a palace in Malta?) do the troops mop up the other end of their spectrum, the SPs who tell the truth about Scientology and Hubbard?
Rathbun and Rinder excuse the evil they did by saying it was to defend Scientology and the founder, or achieve their acceptance. R & R have never stated that they would not do the same or worse for these purposes. They have never stated that Scientology is not worth doing evil for.
What they claim is that they discovered that what they were defending, and fighting for acceptance for, turned out not to be Scientology but something else – C of M, Miscaviology, corporate Scientology, etc.
Now that Rathbun and Rinder “know” that what they’re defending, and fighting for acceptance for, is really Scientology, it is completely reasonable to accept that they would do the same as they did while defending, and fighting for acceptance for, something that is not Scientology. It is actually reasonable that they would do worse now.
From a transcript of a telephone call between Rathbun and Michael Doven ca. 28 April 2010:
Fortunately, they are limited in the evil they can do by the same laws that restrain dependent Scientologists from doing unimaginable evil, and by their actual limited power, even with enormous resources.
The Indies, or the troops, on their own is obviously an invention. They are not on their own. When you can demonstrate they are on their own, I will join you in not worrying about them. What I have found effective for reducing or eliminate worry about the actually organized Independs, or the actually organized Depends for that matter, is communicating about them and to them, and confronting them.
Good. Fair game is the application of the Suppressive Person doctrine against SPs; that is wogs who tell the truth about Scientology and Hubbard. Not Rathbun or Rinder, or any Independent Scientologists, or any Dependent Scientologists, have repudiated the doctrine. They have to apply it, even in their ignoring of the SP class, that is, their wog victims. Scientology scripture provides no other treatment or handling for SPs.
Not every Scientologist gets to dramatize his or her intentions for SPs. That is because these intentions are criminal and if acted on are punishable in wog courts. Much of war in the realm of thought is legal, and much of the Scientologists’ war on its victims is in the realm of thought. (Ref. Battle Tactics)
Rathbun and Rinder got to dramatize their evil intentions toward SPs in the non-thought world, and get away with it. It’s not so easy now for Scientologists like Rathbun and Rinder, or even like Miscavige and his new lieutenants, to get away with it. Some wog victims, like Gerry and I, are fighting back.
Sure. But the important part of the Scientologists’ war, holy or unholy, is still on wogs. Their war on Miscavige, even if not faked like Loyalist Op One, is a matter of internal ethics. Most vital for me is the Scientologists’ war against my class, the SPs. All Scientologists participate in it. SPs should be fighting back against all Scientologists.
The Scientologists don’t like it when thinking wogs fight back. Too bad. I hope for everyone that more and more wogs fight back.
Your sentence ".” Rathbun says this group is occupied “those who would not be satisfied until every last word of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard was forever destroyed,” but that is just black PR "
I confess to allMaghty Wrathbunny that I am one of those who live and breathe to see "every last word of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard forever destroyed," hmmm yum yum !!! it would be such a joy to see that
