Was L. Ron Hubbard Stupid?

(Note: I had so many write about this over at reddit, that I feel it necessary to inject that this is intended to be more of a mockery of Hubbard than anything else.  After I wrote my story about Lisa Mcpherson, I felt compelled to use Hubbard’s own words against him. In a way, I kind of mean what I say here but there is no way a devout Scientologist would ever agree with me)

L. Ron Hubbard founded Dianetics and Scientology, publishing “Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health” on May 9th, 1950 and everything expanded from there. Well, there was an earlier book, “The Evolution of a Science” in 1948 but, the starting point has always been considered to be May 9th 1950.
Hubbard wrote book after book. He gave lecture after lecture. Many days, he was giving 2 to 3 lectures a day. He went over to England, having many Scientologists go over there as well, and gave lecture after lecture, which become known as the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course. He Issued policy after policy, Tech Bulletin after Tech Bulletin. He has Organizations all over the world that follow his teachings.
He even started the Sea Org, who’s members sign a Billion Year Contract of loyalty, which probably has somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 members (but there is no way to be certain of that).
What was he doing this whole time? Per him he was ‘mapping the road out”
All of his books and all his lectures are his path of mapping the road out. He may say one thing one month and then the next month change things up as he found the pervious stuff wasn’t workable.
In 1965 he goes as far as saying:
“It has taken me a third of a century in this lifetime to tape this route out.
It has been proven that efforts by man to find different routes came to nothing. It is also a clear fact that the route called Scientology does lead out of the labyrinth Therefore it is a workable system, a route that can be traveled.”

Same issue:
“Scientology is a workable system. It white-tapes the road out of the labyrinth. If there where no white tapes marking the right tunnels, man would just go wandering around and around the way he has for eons, darting off on wrong roads, going in circles, ending up in the sticky dark, alone. “

Hubbard is telling us he has the road out! Man, that’s a big freaking deal isn’t?!?

YES IT IS!

Man, has been looking for a road out for a very, very long time.
And Hubbard has THE answers in his books. Or does he?
Hubbard has always said the early Books are the fundamentals of Scientology and it’s those you have to know. He also says those books are what an auditor has to know.

But was he Stupid that is the question?

Someone that puts out so much work (books and tapes) and cultivates such a HUGE following could hardly be considered stupid, right?

Well, let’s take a look.

Hubbard’s whole goal from 1950 to around the inception of the Sea Org was how to get Auditors trained. And, really kept a huge focus on this the whole time.

Ability Issue 83 October ‘58

“Here is what I have found out. I have found out that a Scientologist in his training must approximate the route of the actual research and discovery. Otherwise, he is not able to clear people easily since he lacks fundamental understandings which became commonplace many years ago.”

And to see how much emphasis he puts on this, from the same article:

“Without a broadly informed population who are capable of understanding motives and aberrations no sane government of Earth is possible. Without a great many clears no real effective leadership is possible for Man.
The joke is on all of us, to say nothing of Man at large. The singular truth of the matter is that when he deserts this life he doesn’t quit. He has to come back here again and do it all over. You might not believe this but you can learn it subjectively fast enough if you are in the hands of any good auditor. Truth will out, no matter how final everyone has pretended death might be. Death is very far from a permanent state. This is probably much easier to prove with much less strain on the brain than some of the fundamental laws of physics.
If we don’t do something about this now, we’ll have to come back at a less optimum time without adequately organized data and organizations and somehow muck through once more. Personally I don’t believe we could in the next few hundred thousand years and I believe this is a rare opportunity to break the chain and start walking upward into the sunlight.”

I want to focus in on 2 key points of all that:

“Here is what I have found out. I have found out that a Scientologist in his training must approximate the route of the actual research and discovery…”

He wants you to follow the “route of the actual research and discovery!
and
“If we don’t do something about this now, we’ll have to come back at a less optimum time without adequately organized data and organizations and somehow muck through once more. Personally, I don’t believe we could in the next few hundred thousand years and I believe this is a rare opportunity to break the chain and start walking upward into the sunlight.”

He says right there:

“we’ll have to come back at a less optimum time without adequately organized data”

What I want you to get here is how important it was to him that people actually understood this subject IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO HIM. This whole subject is the map out for him too!

What’s he mean by “less optimum time without adequately organized date”?  is he saying his data is organized adequately?

I was going to list reference after reference to back up my point here but I’m not going to do that. I think you get my point about how important it was for people to understand his books.

Let me ask you something:

If it was that important to the man don’t you think he would make sure those books were capable of being understood? (And for all you out there that think it was just a bunch of junk anyway, okay, I get ya, but hear me out).
Let’s assume, as Miscavige wants us to, that his statement in 1970 about Case Supervisors is incorrect (I personally believe that Hubbard meant exactly what he said) and Hubbard had to have his books revised.

HCO PL 30 May 70 KSW #7 “Cutatives”

Recently I found the reason Case Supervisors failed is that they just don’t know “The Original Thesis” and “Evolution of a Science” or “Scn 8-80” or “Scn 8-8008″. WHEN I DEMANDED THEY STUDY THESE BOOKS THEY BECAME CAPABLE OF HANDLING CASES. They did not know what they were handling, the mind, and so how could they be sensible in ordering what was to be run on a case?”

How many times were those books revised and updated on his watch? I, personally, have no idea and, to me, it doesn’t matter as a man with that much importance on someone knowing the fundamentals of his subject is going to make damn sure they are exactly as he wants them.

Am I right?

What is Hubbard’s hat here as the Founder of this subject? At least part of that hat would be to make sure the information is put out in such a way that it could be understood, right? 
To me, that’s his hat: TO MAKE SURE THE INFORMATION HE IMPARTS IS ABLE TO BE UNDERSTOOD (if you disagree with me, so be it).
If those books weren’t able to be understood, Hubbard failed at his hat right?

Let’s say Hubbard undertook a project to update those books to ensure they were exactly as he intended (after all, it’s vitally important that these books be correct) and let’s say those books, revision after revision, with Hubbard on watch (from 1950 to 1986) were NEVER correct.

That’s what Miscavige wants us to assume right?

Do you know how Hubbard feels about a Sea Org Member not being able to do his job?

No? well here it is:

Flag Order 2722 5 Feb 1971
“A Sea Org member is expected to be able to do any duty assigned.
This means trained or not, hatted or not.
This is the competence expected on any post or at any time.
A Sea Org Member is expected to get things done, with or without orders.
If a Sea Org Member cannot set up, organize and perform any duty required he is open to a charge of STUPIDITY.
There is a point where Stupidity ends and Treason begins.
Any failure to handle a situation brings about this charge.
Reported to the MAA, where it is clearly proven that a situation remained unhandled or was mishandled and loss or damage of any kind occurred, a Court of Ethics must be convened and if guilty the offender is fined a minimum of a week’s pay and bonuses and a maximum of a month’s pay.
Repeating Offenders may be sent by a Court to the Fitness Board.”

(a Fitness Board determines if you are “fit” to be in the Sea Org. They can off-load and have you declared a “degraded being” )

That’s pretty harsh, huh?
So, If LRH didn’t have his books out correctly in the 36 years of their existence while he was alive, was he Stupid?

Some would go, “But Hubbard didn’t re do the books, others re-did them on his orders” Okay, fine. That is most likely true. And I ask you, “He wouldn’t look at the work he ordered done and make sure it was correct?” If you answer “no” there. You don’t know Hubbard and his work.

Flag Order 2358 18Feb1970
“Operations Compliance Reports”
“When Operations accepts “Done” as the single statement and calls it a compliance, non-compliance can occur.
Operations must:
(1) Require explicit compliance to every order, and
(2) Receive the evidence of compliance pinned to the Compliance Report.”

You know what that means? It means Hubbard isn’t going to just accept a done after he ordered his books updated. No freaking way! He is going to want that book in his hands, he is going to look it over and he is going to make damn sure that Compliance was done.

I know must of you have never turned in a Compliance Report in your life to an “Operations Officer” but I tell you, you can’t just say “done”. You have to PROVE the shit was actually done!

Order: Buy some pens.
You better have that damn receipt and that receipt better say pens on it. Hell, I have even had something like that turned down before and I had to send a picture of the actual pens in my hand with the freaking receipt.
Yes, so my point is that Hubbard would have made damn sure those books were correct, not only when he first wrote them but also on any revisions later on.

Okay, so per Miscavige all those books were incorrect.

Was Hubbard Stupid per Flag Order 2722?

I say he was not ONLY Stupid, he was in a Condition of Treason to humanity for NOT ENSURING HIS ROUTE OUT WAS ABLE TO BE UNDERSTOOD.

(Guys, I don’t believe any of it was a map out. I don’t think his “tech” works but I do think allows someone to feel better from time to time.

I have just been dying to say what I just wrote since 1996!

I, personally, put him in a Condition of Treason for putting out such bogus shit that screws up so many people.

(Guys, I don’t believe any of it was a map out. I don’t think his “tech” works but I do think allows someone to feel better from time to time.

The person that is Stupid is Miscavige for thinking that the long-term Scientologists are going to believe his sorry ass and think that Hubbard couldn’t get something so Important to him done correctly.

Thanks for reading. I will get to writing my story after I assign one more condition.
