If you were in SO, this is a must-see ... I think it's a must-see for everyone, really.

Scientology: The Shrinking World of L. Ron Hubbard

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_w-YWwC1lI


It's about 25 min., and a very good expose/interview as the babbling Ron gave them more footage than they could use. They turned it into a solid documentary. It's good to remember that people were on to this madness even back then. Be forewarned: there are some really nasty teeth in Ron's mouth. Not for the squeamish. Download & share!

Ron's TRs and Body Language

I've watched this several times and what strikes me is Ron's demeanor. His eyes seem to flutter. He often closes them, looks the other way, has poor eye contact, fidgets a bit and has a kind of weird slightly cheerful smirk that seems unnatural. I would flunk his TR0. :)

Terrible interview.

3:40 "Even after 3 hours of talking, we never got an explanation from him that we could understand."

13:15 "I never had a second wife."

13: 55 Nick Robinson (Ex Scientologist. Critic)

16:07 To the question "Do you believe that you have lived before?" He answers "... to answer that question would be very unfair."

20:40 "I don't have Swiss bank accounts; there is an account in Switzerland. I don't know how much money is in it, but not very much."

22:00 Hubbard says he gets no income from Scientology and all his money comes from his early writing and films.

24:55 "My kids are all cheerful."

• Even Hubbard couldn't explain Scientology.

• Hubbard was married three times.

• Why would it be unfair to say you believe that you have lived before, unless you don't believe that?

• I don't have Swiss bank accounts, but I do have a Swiss bank account.

• So he made millions from his early writings did he? Even Oil tycoons back in those days thought a Million dollars was something special.

• His kids are not cheerful now.

Compare with this in-house generated, prepped and scripted, foppish one; is it just me or does ronald appear to be coming on a bit to his interviewer? :heartflower::flirt:

Yeah, but still, I always thought this interview was weird too. While everyone else around me was raving about it, I was embarrassed to show it to new public.

EXPLANATION: Scientologists are standardly trained to rave about Scientology.

TECH: TR-0. Trained to Rave about O (zero;nothing).

EXAMPLE:

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Wow oh wow! That new rundown totally cracked my case!

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
But...it hasn't been released yet. Did you get it already?

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
No. But it totally handles everything. Now I am sure I
will make it to eternity and never be trapped again.

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
Huh? But you didn't even have it yet...

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Haven't you ever heard of having
to have before you can rave?

Add another lie.

(11:26) "Not by me. Not by me."

This, in answer to a question regarding Hubbard's organization being told by Hubbard what to do.

The big lie, stated emphatically, by a conniving con man.

These are the "good old days" that Indie Scientologists nostalgically look back on with such loving remembrance.

FuckingCringe!

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
Hey, thanks for putting this video interview on but I think I've watched enough, I want to go smoke a cig.

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Was there some word there or idea that you didn't understand?

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
No, and why does L. Ron Hubbard smirk like that? He just seems weird.

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Have you heard that somewhere? Do you have friends, family or acquaintances that think LRH is weird?

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
Who's LRH?

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST

L. Ron Hubbard

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
Oh! Okay, well, anyway. He just doesn't seem to really answer the interviewers questions and, well, I don't know he just seems weird and eccentric. That's fine, I mean, I'm sure he has written some cool stuff but I just don't think any one single man could come up with ALL the answers and I'm going to just get as much information as possible and keep studying lots of different stuff. Anyway, thanks dude.

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
(Talking to self in own head: Hmmm, what do I say, what do I do? This does not compute. Okay, here goes)

So, what are your crimes?

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
Wait, wut?

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Ya smokin' pot? Stealin' from work?

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
What?

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Anyway, next time you come in you should go see the ethics officer just to make sure you don't have anybody weird on your lines.

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
What?

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST
Trust me, it will all make sense later. So, hey, thanks for coming in and we'll see you tomorrow.

NEW SCIENTOLOGIST
What?

TRAINED SCIENTOLOGIST to SENIOR
That guy needs some serious auditing. He's got all sorts of messes stuck to him. I think it went well today though. We'll see him tomorrow.

TOMORROW COMES:

:whistling: Where is he? :hmm: What happened?

:) Yes. That's how I felt about The Secret of Flag Results or whatever it was called. When I was in I think it was 4-5 years before I ran across this ronald film out of the several orgs I was associated with at one time or another; seems the div 6's in those orgs didn't seem to think much of it either. :eyeroll:

:hysterical::hysterical::hysterical:

Mailman, not knowing he mailed a good roads, good weather letter to himself, goes to the mailbox, reads the letter and feels somehow compelled to go into the org and get an A-J meter check.

He finds out that he works for the government :omg:

He becomes introverted and wonders if he will ever go free.

He is given a C/S R-factor that he is an illegal PC.

He is regged continuously for 5 years straight to donate to "handle" his degraded status.

He eventually "Goes Postal"

(Please continue.....)

Ridiculous Regging

These made up stories are hysterical because they are so close to the truth.

The truth is that the cos messes up virtually every individual that it comes in contact with.
