the Apologist: In defense of L Ron Hubbard

Muladhara wrote:

this is what is happening with L Ron Hubbard right now. he was a drug addict, all the way to his death.
he was a criminal and a litigous curmudgeon.

He invented narconon, while downing amphetamines and barbiturates and rum, with a crew of 13-16 year old girls lighting his cigarettes and wiping his butt.

why? he was in it for the money. when he wasn't getting as much in as he thought he should, he squeezed the members and pushed for recruitment, and raised the price of his 'techs'

when enough people got to the 'final level', he just 'discovered' another one and wrote up a new tech while blazing on speed.

Well first of all, most or all of these things are probably true. There's certainly no shortage of evidence that L. Ron Hubbard participated in superhuman levels of manipulation and hypocrisy, and even though most of that evidence comes from hostile sources with a bone to pick, there really is quite a lot of it. And there sure are a lot of said hostile sources.

But the hostile appraiser comes to the table looking for fault, and therefore sees past actions outside of the context in which they were actually taken. And what use speaking ill of the dead? L. Ron Hubbard cannot learn from criticism. And to whom could the case of L. Ron Hubbard serve as a cautionary tale? Not to any who risk repeating his mistakes.

If you are a brilliant young idealistic megalomaniac with animal magnetism, out of control ego, and misguided messianic complex, you don't look like L. Ron Hubbard to yourself. You look like the tragic misunderstood hero.

He doesn't look like me. He is that other kind of person. This is the same reason that the use of L. Ron Hubbard-as-scapegoat cannot serve as a potent medicine against corruption and hypocrisy in the citizenry-at-large, those multitudes who are not brilliant would-be modern saviors, or at least are unrealized as such.

The demonization of L. Ron Hubbard certainly isn't keeping anyone out of any cults. It doesn't even keep people out of his cult. The assertion that Hubbard was a con man is pretty well circulated by now, and yet there are somehow still millions of paying Scientologists. If you want to keep people out of cults, you provide them with the means to obtain on their own terms whatever it is that these cults promise to deliver. And if you can't do that, you should at least be defaming the living. L. Ron Hubbard doesn't recruit Scientologists anymore. 22 years after his death we have run out of useful ways to hate him.

So can we absolve the dead in this case? Here is a man who founded a multinational anti-drug organization, who spoke out violently against psychiatry, who was a hopeless addict to pharmaceutical drugs. You don't need to look at him with hate or disdain. You can notice how his discovery that income tax auditing is an ancient rape-like submission tool employed for trillions of years by our alien controllers came when his own troubles with the I.R.S. were at their worst, and you can pity him in light of this realization.

You can pity the helpless dead man who sold millions of people on a system of self-help that could only cure the psychological issues he had identified in himself. And who could not cure himself. The hypocrite, the addict, the compromised idealist. He was not one-of-a-kind. He was a modern human.

DMT is illegal because the Government doesn't want you to contact aliens on your own...

DMT, Moses, and the Quest for Transcendence
by Cliff Pickover, Reality Carnival

"DMT in the pineal glands of Biblical prophets gave God to humanity and let ordinary humans perceive parallel universes."

The molecule DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine) is a psychoactive chemical that causes intense visions and can induce its users to quickly enter a completely different "environment" that some have likened to an alien or parallel universe. The transition from our world to theirs occurs with no cessation of consciousness or quality of awareness. In this environment, beings often appear who interact with the person who is using DMT. The beings appear to inhabit this parallel realm. The DMT experience has the feel of reality in terms of detail and potential for exploration. The creatures encountered are often identified as being alienlike or elflike. Some of the creatures appear to be three-dimensional. Others appear to lack depth.

I believe the government is keeping these chemicals illegal because it is hiding the perceptual gateway to the Alien Universe.

I think some aliens live in this world, and some travel through it, like the Greys.

I think that the DMT, because it is so close in structure to our usual world-lens seratonin, allows us to see a broader reality, even if it is one we cannot easily function in, a window into 'Hyperspace'.

Seratonin and other chemicals are used by the brain to organize the sense-data we constantly take in into recognizable reality-pictures, or models.

we know that what we see is not exactly what is there, we only see seven colors, we can't see radiation or infrared and so on.

There are experiments where electricity was used to cause abduction-like experiences including paralysis and Greys.

DMT by the way, actually causes paralysis in most people.

there is also intense fear.

So to capsulate it, DMT is a window through which man can see another world, where Greys either originate, or travel through to our dimension

The government started covering it up after these discoveries were made in the 80s and 90s. It keeps the chemical on a tight leash.

perhaps the governments Black Ops dept. is still running DMT aided RV crews...?
