Blog: Scientology, Generalities, and Paranoia - 2018-02-24
In HCOPL, The Anti-Social Personality, The Anti-Scientologist, L. Ron Hubbard wrote that among his twelve attributes, the Anti-Social Personality "speaks only in very broad generalities. 'They say…' 'Everybody thinks…' 'Everybody knows…' and such expressions are in continual use, particularly when imparting rumor. When asked 'Who is everybody…' it normally turns out to be one source and from this source the Anti-Social Personality has manufactured what he or she pretends is the whole opinion of the whole society. This is natural to them since to them all society is a large hostile generality, against the Anti-Social Personality."
Despite LRH's pronouncement that generalities were the instruments of the anti-social personality, much of what he preached was based on assumptions plucked right out of the tool chests of these merchants of chaos. He made huge, broad-sweeping generalities about whole segments of society: psychiatry, the press, the military, the Internal Revenue Service, governmental workers, and the American Medical Association, to name a few. You'd almost think the man was paranoid!
Not only were these aforementioned industries evil, but so was everyone associated with them. If LRH got snubbed by someone within an organization, the whole organization was rotten. Everyone in it was a crook. Psychiatry in particular was loathed by LRH, "psychs" being the cause of all of mankind's woes since the beginning of time. No doubt it was a psych who introduced the concepts of misunderstood words, overts, and masturbation.
