I have been reading “The Wikileaks Files-The world according to the US Empire”. It contains many dispatches and summaries of these, relatively recent dispatches from US embassies and diplomats, around the world of varying degrees of secrecy. The interesting thing about these are that we get to see the straight dope, not the usual watered down pap that tends to be fed to the public. We get to see motives and the actions on those motives, whether good or bad. One of the more noticeable aspects of this book, is the degree of criminality and immorality that is freely admitted to, encouraged, and acted on as though it is a normal state of affairs. Which indeed it probably is, and I am reminded of what LRH had to say about the SP, in that he can freely admit to heinous crimes and not feel any remorse for them. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know why there seems to be so much conflict in the world.
But one of my main reasons for reading it is to see what if anything in it relates to Scientology, especially US government attacks over the years and the modus operandi of them, and there are a couple of points some may find interesting.
Regarding torture from the chapter “Dictators and Human Rights”-“This has been particularly useful for the US government since the CIA alighted on the advantages of psychological torture during its “mind-control” experiments between 1950 and 1962”. I am reminded of LRHs book Science of Survival from 1952 where he is the first one to have found and report on the US government using the barbaric, “Pain-drugs and hypnosis” to brainwash an individual.
Further on in this chapter-“The historical origins of this practice can be traced to the CIAs post war development of torture techniques and apparatuses, as it sought to prop up a network of dictatorships and states aligned to the US. The surreal investment in “mind-control” research on the part of the Agency was initially justified as a legitimate defensive response to communist “brainwashing”, but quickly assumed an offensive purpose. This also drew in leading psychologists, such as the behaviourist Donald Hebb, in a series of human experiments.”
Further on in the book in the chapter on Iraq the author states, “Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch reported in 2010 that US military psychologists and psychiatrists were complicit in torture and other illegal procedures”. This does have seeds of the Psychs and Priests HCOB. Personally, I am not a believer that every Psych or Priest is bad, but it’s obvious the percentage is comparatively high, and due to that, it does lead one to wonder about its basic philosophy! There is more that could be exposed and said on this, but that can be for another time.
From the chapter on “Syria”. “Another theme that recurred in the 2006 cable focusing on Syria’s “vulnerabilities” and how the US should try to exploit them was that the US should take actions to try to destabilize the Syrian government by provoking it to “overreact”, both internally and externally.” The author goes on to list the actions taken, but I thought this was interesting, I have never heard of this form of Intelligence strategy before, and as a calculated guess, this could apply to some actions the GO took in response to attacks in the early days.
This cable is from William Roebuck, charge d affaires at the US embassy in Damascus “Possible Action: ENCOURAGE RUMORS AND SIGNALS OF EXTERNAL PLOTTING………..This again touches on this insular regime’s paranoia and increases the possibility of a self-defeating over-reaction.”
The author goes on to say “It is revealing that Roebuck described the regime as “paranoid” for having fears that appear to have been quite rational—fears based in significant measure on the actions of the United States and its allies.” “Paranoid” is a term the US govt has tried to pin on LRH over the years, and some have bought into it, but here it is in black and white, and in their own words, that it is a tactic used by the US government to sway public opinion against the target they disapprove of.
One thing to remember is that these are not just words in a book, they represent hundreds of thousands maybe millions of lives, the quality of them and their very existence. Again, LRH paved the way in exposing the major criminals of this planet, and that knowledge is becoming more mainstream with every passing day. The new movie, “The Big Short” is the most recent proof of that, add into that ex President Jimmy Carter explaining how the US has become an oligarchy, and then start to explore how much money a war and weaponry can generate for arms manufacturers and these constant wars that are required to keep us “safe”, start to make more sense.
In summary I believe there is much to factually find out regarding LRH, his actions and those of the Church since 1950 and if we had competent management, this would have been done and dusted many years ago. Instead we have a management which has managed to do what all the government agencies before it couldn’t, near destroy it, and create anti Scns out of Scientologists. I know on this site, I don’t have to expound LRHs virtues, we have duplicated his tech and by seeing our and others lives enriched and the potential of the tech, when done correctly, LRHs motives are very clear to us. A new era for Scientology, is just around the corner, and has already started.
