Keeping Scientology Working Series 1
This is such an important piece of work that Hubbard did that is the very first thing you read on EVERY course you do in Scientology (except on the introductory courses). He wrote this on 7 Feb 1965
I’m going to go over some aspects of this so you REALLY get the mentality of a Scientologist.
Here we go:
In all Caps Hubbard writes:
“WHAT I SAY IN THESE PAGES AS ALWAYS BEEN TRUE, IT HOLDS TRUE TODAY. IT WILL STILL HOLD TRUE IN THE YEAR 2000 AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO HOLD TRUE FROM THERE ON OUT.
NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN SCIENTOLOGY, ON STAFF OR NOT, THIS POLICY LETTER HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH YOU”
Okay, that really doesn’t mean a lot just yet does it?
I’m not going to list the 10 points or Keeping Scientology Working in this rendition. I will do that later as I refine my work and figure out what I am really doing with all this.
Basically, in this policy, Hubbard states HE and HE only is the one that came up with all this technology. Any other version of his technology doesn’t work and is called “Squirreling” (how Microsoft Word knows that word, I have no idea).
He goes on for several pages, close to 5, of why one should never “Squirrel” Scientology. He gives several examples of times this did happen, how it happened and what should have been done it about to keep the squirreling from happening.
In most cases, the reason of this falls back to a week as Course Supervisor who was just too afraid to enforce the Technology, too afraid to offend the student and too afraid to make the student do what is being called for exactly as it says, exactly by the book.
I was a Course Supervisor. In fact, I was a Flag Trained Course Supervisor. One of the best actually. I trained close to 3 Auditors a week while on the Supervisor post. So, maybe you can just imagine how often this policy was drilled into my head. Maybe? Idk.
He further states, (no longer in all caps):
“With what we know now, there is no student we enroll who cannot be properly trained”
Failure is not an option with ANY student.
“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 of die in the attempt Never let them be half-minded about being Scientologists. The finest organizations in history have been tough, dedicated organizations not one namby-pamby bunch of panty-waist dilettantes have ever made anything. It’s a tough universe. The social veneer makes it seem mild. But only the tigers survive-and even they have a hard time. We’ll survive because we are tough and are dedicated When we DO instruct somebody properly, he becomes more and more tiger. When we instruct half-mindedly and are afraid to offend, scared to enforce, we don’t make students into good Scientologist and that lets everybody down. When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that wandering doubt in her eye into a fixed, dedicated glare and we’ll win and we’ll all win. Humor her and we all die a little. 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.”
Yes, that is just ONE paragraph. I typed it word for word just now and barely had to look to see if I had the text right (and that’s after 10 years of not having this policy should down my throat).
That’s the attitude. That’s the attitude that one has to keep while in Scientology, especially someone that is a Course Supervisor.
“An Instructor or Supervisor or Executive MUST challenge with ferocity instances of “unworkability”. They must uncover what DID happen, what was run and what was done or not done”
The Attitude gets even more intense. Here we go:
“We’re not playing some minor game in Scientology. It isn’t cute or something to do for lack of something better.
The whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depend on what you do here and now with and in Scientology.
This is a deadly serious activity. And if we miss getting out of the trap now, we may never again have another chance.
Remember, this is our first chance to do so in all the endless of trillions of years of the past. Don’t muff it now….”
I stopped at “now” because if I typed the rest, I would have to go back and list the 10 points of Keeping Scientology Working (KSW) and I just don’t feel like typing all those write now and trying to explain them.
What I did write gives you a very good understand of the mind set of a Scientologist. It gives you the mind set a Course Supervisor must have and what one expects of anyone involved in Scientology.
It’s the very first Major policy that anyone reads in Scientology. Some get to it faster than others, some take months to finally get to it. But EVERYONE reads this and they read it over and over and over again.
Just let all that sink in for a bit. Try to adopt that attitude for a moment. Go ahead try. Now, imagine that attitude burned into your head every day, every waking hour or every day. That’s what it’s like.
Fucking crazy but I was one of the best with this attitude. I stood up to RTC for violating Scientology Tech and policy.
Here’s the story on that, and yes, this REALLLY did happen OSA (I know you are reading this)
I always had a hard time getting the DSA on course. I finally succeeded, and it was a very busy day too. It was Sunday. I would have 25-40 students normally on a Sunday. An RTC rep visited the Org that day and needed to talk to the DSA about some legal shit that was happen. I told him he would have to wait to break time as it’s a suppressive act to interrupt a student while they are studying and it’s a suppressive act for me to allow it.
Man, that fucker wouldn’t let up. He had my Senior come to me and try. I said “NO!”. He had my Senior’s Senior come to me and try. He even had the Org ED try, who was an OEC/FEBC graduate (the highest training you can have as an exec) I stopped them every time but man I was freaking busy that day.
While I was across the room, my Senior’s Senior (a Major exec at the Org) run into the course room and interrupted my student! I was so freaking pissed off, I couldn’t stand it. Break was only about 15 mins away. That RTC rep couldn’t wait 15 freaking minutes?!? But, instead decided to have others commit a suppressive act. He basically ordered the shit.
At break, he came to me and try to tell him how glad he was for the org to have someone like me running their Course Room. I was so pissed off. I didn’t shake his hand or anything. I told him, “obviously, I’m not good enough as a suppressive was just committed and your ordered it!”
I stayed late that day and wrote a knowledge report on the whole lot of them.
That example there gives you an idea of how caught up in this I was and hell, I wasn’t even in Scientology 3 years when that happened.
Thanks for reading. I will later refine this. List the 10 points of Keeping Scientology Working and get this policy across to you even more but for now, this will do.
