Blog: Why Cold Steel and Scientology Don't Mix - 2012-05-10
Over the past three decades Scientology Inc head David Miscavige has proudly and increasingly implemented what he calls the 'ruthless, cold, chrome steel' personality 'necessary' to manage Scientology. It started with Religious Technology Center (RTC, the top of Scientology Inc's chain of command). Cold, chrome steel has made its way all the way down to local churches of Scientology. More and more cops to prevent more and more potential 'crime.' More and more cops policing more and more dynamics. Public Scientologists taking on the valence of cops, confronting and informing upon friends and family members for creating an independent thought, for example. Look at the end product.
L. Ron Hubbard tells us why this has had such disastrous effects, and why the independent Scientologists movement has thrived and can be counted upon to continue to do so. Fittingly, from the 4th of July, 1958 in a lecture titled The Fact of Clearing:
Man definitely has a right to certain happiness. He isn't going to experience that right under the circumstances of his own past. He can't. He's too wound up in this and that. It's not the mores of the society that prevent him . It's all of these delusions about how bad the other fellow is.
