Scientology: The Hole
Thanks for posting that snippet of Hubbard confessing that "Dianetics The Modern Science of Mental Health" does not produce a "Clear" as it so boldly claims.
After admitting to the hoax of his "scientific" discovery, he continued selling the Dianetics book, courses and lavishly expensive auditing for 28 more years until he died in 1986. Hubbard lived like an emperor and died on the run from legal problems, a physically ill and broken man with approximately $600M in the bank.
More details below or at the thread: "Hubbard Admits Dianetics Book is a Fraud".
<snip>Thank you in advance to those that find more books, first hand accounts, and videos, as a compiled reference to Hubbard's criminal actions through Scientology.
Please add posts within the topic of this thread - Ron The Criminal (and his criminal cult, $cientology), with dox, videos, references, etc. Any derails, hijacking, and board rule violations will be reported. Thank you

...and now for some quotes from the founder of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard.
"MAKE MONEY. MAKE MORE MONEY. MAKE OTHER PEOPLE PRODUCE SO AS TO MAKE MORE MONEY".
- L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 9 March 1972, MS OEC 384.
"Scientology is not a psycho-therapy nor a religion."
- L. Ron Hubbard's "Creation of Human Ability" p. 251.
"In any event, any person from 2.0 down on the Tone Scale should not have, in any thinking society, any civil rights of any kind, because by abusing those rights he brings into being arduous and strenuous laws which are oppressive to those who need no such restraints."
- L. Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, 1989, p. 145.
"There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the Tone Scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the Tone Scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow."
- L. Ron Hubbard, SCIENCE OF SURVIVAL, p. 170.
"Somebody some day will say 'this is illegal.' By then be sure the orgs say what is legal or not."

"Now we say there's, well, another place in the world-there's India. Wonderful place - except for its people."

surely what could be a more heinous criminal act than to continue research and adjust the working theory you have advanced
In the synopsis, the boasting continues after the first sentence, which asserted that the discovery of dianetics was more important than the invention of the wheel…
– Dianetics (from the Greek for “thought”) is “the science of the mind,” and is simpler, as exact, and far more useful than physics and chemistry.
– Dianetics is actually a collection of pursuits in the humanities that have been brought together and made “precise.”
– Dianetics is an “exact science” on the order of engineering.
– Dianetics relies not on theories, but on axioms — in other words, revealed truths, not guesses.
– Dianetic therapy is able to cure, completely and with no chance of relapse, all “inorganic” and “psycho-somatic” illnesses (which, Hubbard says later in the book, make up 70 percent of all human ailments).
A working theory?
I recommend Tony Ortega's series on "Blogging Dianetics". Here's a brief excerpt of his 25 part series:
But you claim that Hubbard adjusted his "working theory".
If that is so, why would he continue to market the Dianetic's book for decades after without revising it?
Why wouldn't Hubbard want millions of people buying his book to know about the "adjustments" to his working theory?
