On the home page I mentioned how L. Ron Hubbard was a trained hypnotist, and how he used hypnosis to create his following of people. On this page are more examples of quotes from Hubbard that further illustrate exactly how he did this.
To reiterrate, the earliest definition of hypnotism is this:
“The real origin and essence of the hypnotic condition is the induction of a mental concentration in which the powers of the mind are so much engrossed with a single idea or train of thought, as to render the individual unconscious of, or indifferently conscious to, all other ideas, impressions, or trains of thought.”
—James Braid, Hypnotic Therapeutics, 1853
Other examples of how Hubbard concentrated Scientologist’s attention on Scientology and Scientology alone, i.e. hypnotised Scientologists, include the following:
(BE CAREFUL WHEN READING THESE TO NOT ONCE AGAIN FALL INTO THE TRAP OF BELIEVING WHAT HE IS SAYING HERE!)
I’ll start with the classic, as it is the one that gets drummed in the most:
“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 the 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 trillions of years of the past.”
(L. Ron Hubbard HCO PL 7 February 1965 Keeping Scientology Working Series 1)
“Will you take advantage of the carefully marked trail upward? I hope you do, my friends. For if you don’t, it will be very lonely in the sky”.
(LRH ED 347 INT, RJ 37)
(REMEMBER WHAT I SAID: DON’T FALL INTO THE TRAP OF BELIEVING HIM AGAIN! HIS CHARM, HIS WAY OF MAKING YOU SEEM IMPORTANT, HIS WAY OF MAKING IT SEEM LIKE YOU INVOLVED IN THE MOST IMPORTANT MOVEMENT ON EARTH, ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE ADDICTIVE HOOKS WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO KEEP YOU IN! BE COGNIZANT OF THESE FACTS WHEN YOU READ HIS HYPNOTIC WORDS! THERE IS LIFE AFTER SCIENTOLOGY)
“In this time and place – for possibly just a little while, we have this chance. To go free and to make it. Planets and cultures are frail things. They do not endure. I strongly advise you work hard at it – don’t waste this brief breath in eternity.”
(LRH ED 342 INT, RJ 35)
“I expect and need your help to carry out the broad mission of de-contaminating this area of the universe”.
(An Open Letter To All Clears)
“The ultimate product of Scientology is a universe that is decent and happy to live in, not degenerated and made miserable by suppressives as it has been.”
(HCO PL 4 December 1966 EXPANSION: THEORY OF POLICY)
“A post in this organization is a trust. Its duty is to keep the peace, do the job and get the show on the road. If anyone cannot conceive of his post as a trust with this mission, he has no business here.” (SEC ED No. 215 A STAFF POST)
“We must come to orderly cause-point on every post. We must, we must, we must.
We’re playing for blood. The stake is Earth. If we don’t make it nobody will. We’re the sole agency in existence today that can forestall the erasure of all civilization or bring a new better one. If we aren’t willing to be hanged for our mistakes we’ll surely fry for them.” (HCO PL 22 May 1959 Issue II CENTRAL ORGANIZATION EFFICIENCY)
“Dilettante = One who interests himself in an art or science merely as a pastime and without serious study.
In an org, this manifests itself with ‘people should live a little.’ ‘One needs a rest from Scientology.’ ‘One should do something else, too’. All that kind of jazz.
Ask what they do the other nights. Bowling. Horse racing.
Boy, you better maul the case folders of staff. You have a suppressive aboard. Maybe six.
Scientology, that saves lives, is a modern miracle, is being compared to bowling. Get it?
That org or portion just isn’t serious. Scientology is an idle club to it, an old lady’s sewing circle.
(HCO PL 16 May 1965 Issue II INDICATORS OF ORGS)
(ARE YOU BREAKING FREE OF HIS CHARM YET, OR GETTING MORE INTO IT? REMEMBER THAT ALL CULT LEADERS HAVE USED THEIR CHARISMA AS THEIR PRIMARY WEAPON TO MAKE INTELLIGENT PEOPLE DO STUPID THINGS. SEE HIS WORDS FOR WHAT THEY ARE–LIES)
“Scientology is the only game in the universe where everybody wins.
We respect the other fellow whatever his status and give him his right to win the biggest prize of all, himself or herself. That prize is won by dedicated, exact application of Scientology and full support of our mission in our organization and the public.
Organized, we can each one win the biggest prize that can be offered – a full recovery of self.
There is no greater game in the universe than Scientology, for it is the only game in which everybody wins. And that places it far above all other games and makes it the game of games where everybody gets the ultimate prize of self . . .” (HCO PL 18 April 1965 Issue I CONTESTS AND PRIZES)
“I have to be, above all things, effective and cannot fall short of being effective or explain ineffectiveness away.
I never compromise with a situation to be agreeable.
This may seem to be a brutal way to go about doing things but remember this: We are a few and we have an enormous area to salvage that long ago went down for the third time. If we fail, it is improbable the job will ever again be done as, on evidence that the problem still exists, it has never before been solved in all the long past ages. So we really can’t take chances. Not with the whole human race. So we do our jobs and see that our jobs are done. We have a trust which, if we fail it, condemns ourselves, our friends, our future to continued oblivion. So we mustn’t fail. Or permit others to fail. And that is how and why we ARE getting the job done”. (HCO PL 12 September 1967 POST, HANDLING OF)
“If we’re determined we will make it, we will make it.” (HCO PL 23 April 1965 Issue III PROBLEMS)
“This goes directly back to man’s failure to solve the riddle of himself.
We must raise our sights as to what we expect from ourselves and each other.
Only then can we arrest and then reverse the decline”. (HCO PL 24 October 1971 PERFORMANCE)
“The whole human race is about to start going up. They’ll move to the degree you deliver and no faster. So let’s get the show on the road”. (HCO PL 28 February 1965 Issue I DELIVER)
“We’re working to provide a safe environment for Scientology and Scientologists in orgs everywhere.
The dangerous environment of the wog world, of injustice, sudden dismissals, war, atomic bombs, will only persist and trouble us if we fail to spread our safe environment across the world.” (HCO PL 5 April 1965 Issue III SCIENTOLOGY MAKES A SAFE ENVIRONMENT)
“The being who is guilty knows with certainty that he is offending against the future of all, no matter what his surface manifestations or conduct. Further, while wog law at the worst can only cause him or her some pain and a body by execution or one’s lifetime loss of liberty, we threaten his eternity.
Even the fellow who could push the button on atomic war knows, really, it’s only one lifetime per person he is blowing up, only one phase in Earth’s existence he or she is destroying. That we exist here could actually restrain him. The mere destruction of a planet might not, as it’s temporary.
You are threatening somebody with oblivion for eternity by expulsion from Scientology.” (HCO PL 29 April 1965 Issue III ETHICS: REVIEW)
“GET RID OF DISTRACTIONS FROM SCIENTOLOGY in your org.
SOFT SELL means vaguely maundering about your product. Example: ‘Scientology sometimes makes people worry a bit less.’
Knock off the soft sell and flubbed delivery.
It’s a new civilization we’re after and we’ll do it.” (HCO PL 2 June 1965 ORG ETHICS AND TECH)
(“IF YOU TELL A LIE BIG ENOUGH AND KEEP REPEATING IT, PEOPLE WILL EVENTUALLY COME TO BELIEVE IT” –JOSEPH GOEBBELS, WHO WAS ADOLF HITLER’S NAZI MINISTER OF PROPAGANDA)
“We are not in the business of being good boys and girls. We’re in the business of going free and getting the org production roaring. Nothing else is of any interest then to Ethics but (a) getting tech in, getting it run and getting it run right and (b) getting production up and the org roaring along.
In short, a staff member can get away with murder so long as his statistic is up and can’t sneeze without a chop if it’s down.” (HCO PL 1 September 1965 Issue VII ETHICS PROTECTION)
“The purpose of Ethics is:
TO REMOVE COUNTER-INTENTIONS FROM THE ENVIRONMENT.
And having accomplished that the purpose becomes:
TO REMOVE OTHER-INTENTIONEDNESS FROM THE ENVIRONMENT
The person who enters a Scientology group to then sell other-answer is of course an enemy”. (HCO PL 18 June 1968 ETHICS)
“We’re not now in this for play. Our personal futures depend on keeping going and making no major flubs. It isn’t a question of is there something else. There isn’t. Nobody can be half in and half out of Scientology. Scientologists are Scientologists no matter what they do for a living.
The prize is regaining self and going free. The penalty for our failure is condemnation to an eternity of pain and amnesia for ourselves and for our friends and for this planet.
If we fail, we’ve had it. It’s not just a matter of getting killed. It’s a matter of getting killed and killed and killed life after life forever more.
Those guys up there mean business. We’ve got to match or better their energy level and dedication or we lose.
We’ve been given a priceless chance. We must make good. We haven’t any time for doubts or maunderings.
We’re the elite of Planet Earth, but that’s only saying we’re the not quite gone in the graveyard of the long gone.
Somehow, despite our condition and the degraded environment we’re in, we’ve got to keep the dedication and the guts to carry through no matter what comes.”
(HCO PL 30 July 1963 CURRENT PLANNING)
“And make nothing out of the enemies who have plagued us for 200,000,000,000 years. And who, if we do not this time succeed, will plague us for 200,000,000,000 more.
THIS is our chance.
Make something of it”. (Excerpt from HCO INFO LETTER, February 25, 1962 It Can be Done)
In this time and in this place – for possibly just a little while, we have a chance. To go free and to make it. Planets and cultures are frail things. They do not endure.
I strongly advise you work hard at it – don’t waste this brief breath in eternity.
For that is your future – eternity”. (LRH ED 342 From Clear to Eternity 9 May 1982)
In fifty thousand years of history on this planet alone, man never evolved a workable system. It is doubtful if, in foreseeable history, he will ever evolve another.
Man is caught in a huge and complex labyrinth. To get out of it requires that he follow the closely-taped path of Scientology.
Scientology, exactly and correctly followed, takes the person up and out of the mess.
Scientology is a new thing – it is a road out. There has not been one.
Scientology is the only workable system man has. It has already taken people toward higher IQ, better lives and all that. No other system has. So realize that it has no competition.
Don’t let your party down. By whatever means, keep them on the route. And they’ll be free. If you don’t, they won’t. (HCO PL 14 February 1965 Safeguarding Technology, Keeping Scientology Working Series 4)

“THE OBJECT IS TOTALLY FREED BEINGS.

You have the tech now; you have the policy. It is you who are applying it. And by applying it, you have the power to reverse the dwindling spiral that has gone on without pause for more years than you can get into an Earth calculator.
For the first time ever you have this chance. And it is you who, just by knowing and using relentlessly the policy and tech, will make it happen.
It may seem large and awesome but it is a fact. You are not engaged in anything superficial.
And no objective worth obtaining was ever achieved without some barriers arising or industrious dedication.
So: Make it happen! The stars wait!” (HCO PL 31 January 1983 THE REASON FOR ORGS)

“Throughout the ages, man has struggled with the subjects of right and wrong and ethics and justice.
Unfortunately, until now, there has been no workable solution, as evidenced by the declining ethical level of society.

“In this minute particle of time we have the opportunity to reverse the downward spiral of life.

“If the Captain does not KNOW that Advanced Courses are the most valuable service on the planet he will not be able to understand HARD SELL. THEREFORE HE MUST REALIZE: That life insurance, houses, cars, stocks, bonds, college savings, are all transitory and impermanent and based on things not surviving, or on things that are in fact being destroyed.
Advanced Courses rehabilitate the Thetan to his OT abilities and last forever and give immortality.
‘Hard Sell’ is based on knowing and promoting in this line (TRUTH!) and not being reasonable about people who want ‘other things’ or ‘other practices’. There is nothing to compare with Advanced Courses. They are infinitely valuable and transcend time itself.” (Flag Mission Order 375, 14 August 1970)
“You see, despite inferences to the contrary, this tech has not been available before anywhere and was not even known.

“No such knowledge has ever existed and no such results have ever before been attainable by Man as those which can be reached by a study of this brief volume.
This book is a summation, if brief, of the results of 50,000 years of thinking men. Their materials, researched and capped by a quarter century of original search by L. Ron Hubbard, have brought the humanities, so long outdistanced by the “exact sciences”, into a state of equality, if not superiority, to physics, chemistry and mathematics.
What has been attempted by a thousand universities and foundations at a cost of billions has been completed quietly here.
This IS how life works.
The use or neglect of this material may well determine the use or neglect of the atomic bomb by Man.
To a Scientologist, the real barbarism of Earth is STUPIDITY.
There is not much Earth time. We must work.
The criminal is ignorant and stupid. Ignorance and stupidity may therefore be called criminal.
There is not much Earth time in which to distribute this knowledge. This is THE solution to our barbarism out of which we would lose all. Scientology works. WE must work, all of us.” (Fundamentals of Thought, 1975 printing, Introduction)
“With Scientology man can prevent insanity, criminality and war. It is for the betterment of man.
The only race that matters at this moment is the one being run between Scientology and the atomic bomb. The history of man, as has been said by well-known authorities, may well depend upon which one wins”.(Fundamentals of Thought, 1975 printing, Chapter 12 Exact Processes)
