Blog: Episode 5: The History of Fair Game - 2020-08-25
In this week's episode, Leah and I discuss the history of Fair Game and the ongoing Fair Game efforts against us. As always, I include a link here to my "summary of Fair Game" entitled: Dealing with Critics of Scientology - The L. Ron Hubbard Playbook. If you have not read this before and have an interest in this subject, I recommend starting with this.
Honestly, this is one of the most important episodes of this podcast. It is not disclosing "new' information, but even seasoned scientology watchers and former scientologists will learn things they likely did not know. Few have ever read the two large documents below — they are absolutely mind-blowing.
To begin with, we review some of the history of Hubbard's decision to have enemies as a necessary part of his dogma (he could simply have ignored the APA and AMA and written them off as "uninformed" and "ignorant" and gone about his business with his huge "advance" and they would have gone the way of the horse and buggy when Ford came out with the Model T). But the war against psychiatry, and then against many others, became an integral part of the belief system of scientology.
