Socialist Communism is a moral, social or political outlook that places interdependence and the importance of the group/state over and above the rights, wants or needs of the individual. The outlook is that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. It is diametrically opposed to individualism. What does this have to do with Scientology? I am glad you asked.
Scientology is actually worse than Communism in that the group/state is not the governing agent, but is beholden to the whims of its leader with absolutely no checks and balances. This type of regime might flourish under a beneficent leader, but under a sociopathic dictator such as Hubbard or Miscavige it is only a dog-eat-dog hierarchy of toadies and the individual be damned.
In 1960, Hubbard established within Scientology, The Department of Government Affairs. The goals of this department were completely political:
"The object of the Department is to broaden the impact of Scientology upon governments and other organizations and is to conduct itself so as to make the name and repute of Scientology better and more forceful. Therefore defensive tactics are frowned upon in the department.... Only attacks resolve threats.
The goal of the Department is to bring the government and hostile philosophies or societies into a state of complete compliance with the goals of Scientology. This is done by a high level ability to control and in its absence by low level ability to overwhelm. Introvert such agencies. Control such agencies. Scientology is the only game on Earth where everybody wins."
This department was soon swallowed up by the Guardians Office and now is part of Scientologys Office of special Affairs (OSA). One example of this is, even years after Hubbard's death, OSA seemed to follow this aggressive policy in its rancorous dealings with the American IRS prior to the favorable tax decision. A prominent legal publication indicated that, in 1992, there were "approximately 100 suits by Scientology and its related entities pending" against the IRS. The actual number of suits, however, was dramatically higher, since a Scientology magazine stated that, as a consequence of the IRS ruling, "the 2,300 cases that had been brought to Tax Court by Scientologists whose deductions for Scientology services had been denied were all brought to an end" - (IAS)
In 1964, Hubbard had revealed revealed his desire to gain control over an jurisdictional area. To readers (mostly Scientologists) he elaborated plans to ensure world peace by building an international city to which all "heads of government, congresses, and parliaments" would move. Amidst directives pertaining to an array of issues (i.e., the city's armed forces, government, extradition powers, finances, etc.), Hubbard stated that "the United Nations and national governments [must be persuaded] that they have no interest in matters of healing or welfare and may not legislate for or against them, nor assist to create health monopolies...". Moreover, "The United Nations should not be permitted to define or outline 'orthodox science' or introduce any idea of orthodoxy into any science or the humanities except government". Along these same lines, "nor should the United Nations or National Governments be permitted to require the indoctrination in any way of the citizens of states or countries, nor pronounce upon their mental fitness or lack of it". At the very least Hubbard wanted a major geographical locale where Scientology would have equal footing with traditional forms of mental health. The project remained mythical, but the mere title of the scheme (Scientology: Plan for World Peace) suggested Hubbard's desire to gain control over a governmental area in order to allow the unbridled practice of his ideology within it. As the supposed editor of the booklet proclaimed about "L. Ron Hubbard, Ph.D." and his proposal, "This Plan for World Peace was foreshadowed in Dr. Hubbard's famous books Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health (1950) and Science of Survival"
I want you to understand that Hubbards master plan is still in effect in the minds of David Miscavige, the Sea Organization and the Office of Special Affairs. Through its "secular" organizations under the umbrella of A.B.L.E. (Association for Better Living and Education), which is run by OSA, Scientology attempts to infiltrate every area of life, in every country where they can get a foot in the door. I will list just a few of these groups here. If you wish, you can see more at the excellent website by Arnie Lerma.
BETTER FAMILY RELATIONS ASSOCIATION (Australia) - Front group for the church headed by Scientology. Eva Ross . Writes letters and articles attacking any persons or groups who expose the truth about Scientology.
Business Success Sales and Management Training - Sci. management front that lures people and businesses in with "management training" and seminars, eventually steers them to LRH and Scientology.
Celebrity Center Kids on Stage for a Better World - Entertainment and PR, "The group exists to spread the word of Scientology to the rest of the world"
Child Guidance Centers - Set up by Scientologists, runs child Dianetics processing on children and encourages parents who are not already into Scientology to begin with Dianetics etc.
CITIZENS COMMISSION ON HUMAN RIGHTS (CCHR) - Founded by church of Scientology in 1969. Claim: to help people who have been abused or mistreated by psychology or psychiatry and/or mental institutions. Intention: to defame, devalue, discredit and destroy the field of psychology and psychiatry because they have disclaimed Dianetics and L. Ron Hubbard as a schizophrenic. Disseminates reports discrediting psychiatry and individual psychiatrists.
COMMUNITY SERVICE GUILD - established in Washington D.C. by Scientology to get LRH influence involved in public schools with a tutoring program.
COMPUTER ETHICS INSTITUTE - (CEI) - Used by Scientology in their attempt to gain control over what can and cannot be put over the Internet.
Criminon consists of volunteers, that are Scientologists, distributing copies of Hubbard's covert recruitment tool "The Way to Happiness" that is full of little common sense quotes. There is nothing inherently wrong with the quotes themselves, though better quotes are available from the truly great writers and philosophers that Hubbard stole them from. What is important to understand about Criminon, is that the purpose of the program is to RECRUIT people into Scientology, NOT to help reform prisoners, despite Scientology's lies to the contrary. The purpose of the program, is to create the perception that L. Ron Hubbard was some great man instead of the convicted felon that he actually was, Why would any Prison Warden official allow a program based upon the writings of a convicted felon to be used at all, much less as a covert recruitment tool into an organization convicted in Canada for Breach of the Public Trust? Copies of "Way to Happiness" are distributed, and then people already fooled by Hubbard's lies, "Scientologists", correspond in writing with the prisoners about the quotes in the book. The purpose? Is to recruit more members. Conclusion? Criminon is just another bogus, covert recruitment tool.
NARCONON - Chain of alcohol and drug rehabs that promote and lead to LRH and Scientology. Narconon uses only the "technology" developed by Hubbard. It is dangerous to addicts and alcoholics because it does not have any education for addiction or alcoholism, does not provide medical treatment of any kind and uses toxic levels of Niacin and vitamins on the sweat program. Narconon also sponsors "drug education" programs in elementary, middle and high schools in an attempt to get Hubbard data to children.
STERLING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS - a management and consulting firm that lures businesses in with "management' seminars, and then steers them to LRH and Scientology courses. - Part of WISE - WISE entraps businesses into Hubbardian dogma by claiming to sell them management technology. Arnie Lerma says "I was trained in Scientology Financial "management" policy, I was astounded to find, some 25 years later, as I read a copy of circus showman P.T. Barnum's "Art of Money Getting: Or, Golden Rules for Making Money" -available from Amazon, to find that it was where Hubbard stole his "management technology". Sections are almost reproduced verbatim! If you have been, or know somebody who has been fooled by WISE management" , you could save a lot of money by "going to source" and buying P.T. Barnum's book, "The Art of Money Getting" for $6..., If you know someone who is a WISE member, P.T, Barnum's book might help open their eyes to the con."
THE WAY TO HAPPINESS FOUNDATION, - Function to distribute LRH literature to public schools and community organizations. Get name recognition for L Ron Hubbard. This is done on a worldwide basis.
WORLD LITERACY CRUSADE - A reading program outreach developed to get LRH Tech and Scientology influence into public schools and communities. One of Scientology's famous celebrities who was successfully advertising for the front group was Musician/Actor Isaac Hayes. Great opportunity for PR and political and community influence.
These seemingly innocuous groups are Scientologys insidious way of getting Hubbards data into every aspect of life in bite sized, easily digested bits. You should be aware that if you let them into your community, you are allowing Scientology another inch, and they WILL take a mile.
