Have you ever noticed, that when talking to a Scientologist, it seems like you are speaking the same language but not exactly? Don't worry. It is that way by design. It gets even worse when you listen to Scientologists talking to each other. You know they are speaking your language, but you don't have any idea what they are saying. This is also on purpose. It is designed to accomplish three things. First, it aids the Scientologist to become more indoctrinated by understanding the "secret" language. Second, it hides what they are saying from the uninitiated. Third, it makes the Scientologist feel superior to the rest of us. Also, Hubbard re-defined some words so that he could further enslave the Scientology population which brings us to ethics and justice.
The actual definition of ethics is:
Moral principles that govern a person's or group's behavior.
The moral correctness of specified conduct.
Now let's look at what Hubbard did with that:
ETHICS consists simply of the actions an individual takes on himself. It is a
personal thing. When one is ethical or “has his ethics in,” it is by his own determinism
and is done by himself.
The definition of justice is:
Just behavior or treatment.
The quality of being fair and reasonable.
Whereas Hubbard defined it as:
JUSTICE is the action taken on the individual by the group when he fails to take
these actions himself.
Let's look at ethics first. Notice that Hubbard left out a very important piece. Morality. If you look at his personal life, Hubbard may have known the definition of morality, but he certainly didn't think it applied to him. It is also not ethical or moral to take drugs while telling your followers not to. Actually though, his definition is a lie. It says that it is by one's own determinism and done by himself. I want you to get this. Any disagreement you may have with policy, coursework or Scientology administrators will get you sent to the ethics officer in a minute. If the ethics officer cannot get you to see the error of your ways then you get to go through justice actions.
Believe me when I tell you that I and many others have found out the hard way that the reason Hubbard defined justice the way he did is that Scientology justice is in no way fair or reasonable. Throwing a person into a concentration camp because they want to leave is not justice. Ripping a person away from their family is not reasonable. In Scientology, it happens regularly.
These two examples are only the tip of a very large iceberg. Look around and you will find many more. Hubbard wanted nothing less than world domination and if he had not gone 'round the bend at Creston ranch, he would have kept working toward that goal until his last dying breath.
What I really want you to get is this. If you join Scientology and especially if you join staff or the Sea Organization, you will become a citizen of Scientology and will be giving up the rights you have as a citizen of your country. Don't believe me? Ask an ex Scientologist.
