Blog: The Responsibility of Leaders - 2017-01-31
This is an essay contributed by Brian Lambert. An interesting topic for sure, and one of the things hammered in by Miscavige.
If you have never read Hubbard's writing of this title, there is a link at the bottom of the article. I suggest you read the document as this essay will not make a lot of sense without reading what Hubbard wrote.
Also, it is important to note that the other thing hammered in by Miscavige along with Responsibility of Leaders is "Keeping Scientology Working" — the demand that Hubbard's words, and his alone, be followed to the letter. While some will try to excuse the Responsibility of Leaders as allegory, to scientologists there really is no such thing. If L. Ron Hubbard said it, it becomes truth. If he writes Bolivar failed because he didn't blackmail his political enemies, then blackmail is acceptable if it is for "the greatest good" (ie will help scientology, Hubbard, or today Miscavige). Had Hubbard wanted this to be understood as mere musings on a subject, it would not have been issued as a POLICY of the organization, to be studied as part of numerous courses on how to "run" scientology and how to deal with "ethics."
