Blog: Scientology's Identity Crisis - 2013-04-25
Scientology auditing technology can be very effective in helping an individual to strip off personality jackets of others that he or she has unwittingly slipped on in life. Paradoxically, Scientology tends to replace those jackets with synthetic ones of its own manufacture.
Scientology requires as a matter of firm policy that one must be a certain identity before one may or can do and have Scientology. Scientology requires its supervisors to convert students into Scientologists before they learn or partake of much Scientology. The supervisors are instructed as follows:
When somebody enrolls, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the universe – never permit an 'open-minded' approach. If they're going to quit let them quit fast. If they enrolled, they're aboard; and if they're aboard, they're here on the same terms as the rest of us – win or die in the attempt. Never let them be half-minded about being Scientologists…The proper instruction attitude is, 'You're here so you're a Scientologist. Now we're going to make you into an expert auditor no matter what happens. We'd rather have you dead than incapable.'
