Hi Knows and HelluvaHoax
What I do not understand is how come you are so bitter about LRH Tech but at the same time you are applying in full the Tech on how to overwhelm (to put it gently) a communication line.
For those who do not know this Technology or want to know what exactly some few people are trying to do read “ An Essay on Management” Volume 7 page 243 -1973 edition.
This essay has been written in 1951 but you will be surprised how accurate it is.
But some will continue to say it does not work but they never give specifics of what exactly does not work in it. Only generalities. What an SP does? S/he takes your rights away. You have to know your rights and you can stop s/he to take your rights away. That is it.
A lot of the writing LRH plagiarized completely in his early days has some meaning, or let's say some meaning if you accept an initial world view, and that includes the "tech" you mention above.
Much of this "tech" is lifted in large part from Dale Carnegie, among others. (And of course it never occurred to Elron to credit any of the people he plagiarized.)
Of course some of it works. That's why Dale Carnegie made a ton of money, and that's why the young Elron was able to read enough of his work to plagiarize it. Dale Carnegie was one of the main "self-help" authors in the first part of the 20th century.
Let's not call this "Tech." Let's just call it what it is, a booster idea that Dale Carnegie and similar early people who wrote on "Management Programs" developed, which were then stolen by Elron and palmed off as his own original ideas.
Later, of course, drugs and increasing malignant narcissism and paranoia and other mental issues began to add things to "tech" like the OT levels that would have made Dale Carnegie run screaming from the room.
PS. I'm not even sure why I'm bothering to write this. I have the feeling that the person I'm responding to is on the wrong website.
