Psychological operations are planned propaganda operations.
Have you noticed how Scientology Inc. consistently describes Independent Scientologists (including me) as followers of Marty. “Followers” of Marty.
Followers. Hmmm. It’s a common thread, so it’s no accident.
The outpoint is “assumed identities not identical.”
A couple of days ago someone started circulating the same enemy line on Facebook. So I started to investigate.
If there is one thing I know, it is positioning. I had to push my understanding to the limit because I had to position Scientology amid the hostile radioactive landscape of DM brand insanity: a worst-case scenario if there ever was one. All told, I literally worked on the problem for years and what you see now is the final culmination of that solution in motion: separating out for everyone the difference between an invaluable philosophy and a psychotic, destructive organization.
To position something means to change how someone thinks about something by characterizing it in a clever or insightful way.
In psychological warfare, the idea is to position maliciously with such subtlety, the enemy never even notices the kiss of death. It’s totally 1.1 (covert hostility).
Followers, throw off your stigmas
I'm not a "follower" any more than you are a "follower.” Are you a follower? Like Flipper, doing anything for a fish? It’s bullshit. It's a put down. An invalidation. And it's pure black propaganda.
See, there aren’t enough resources discredit everyone. And some people, like myself are nigh impossible to discredit. I never beat anyone at the Int base, and I have a terrific track record proven by what I’ve done on my own bat with Scientology-cult.com -- starting by the way in December 2007, one year before Marty joined the fight. Which also takes me out of the “follower” class. But really chronology has nothing to do with it.
PSYOP by the CoS
What the CoS is really attacking is your sense of personal integrity, specifically points 14, and 15:
1. Never desert a comrade in need, in danger or in trouble.
-- L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology 0-8, The Code of Honor, Nov 1954
Those in the CoS are the followers. We are the leaders. And that is what makes us strong. The SPs hate that.
The entire “follower” prank is a black marketing op -- textbook PSYOP. Select a leader and start a massive black PR campaign against him. Reposition (and stigmatize) everyone else as a “follower” (a covert put down implying you don’t have a mind of your own, can’t think for yourself, you are a mindless automaton, etc.). It’s a negative button.
