PSYOP 101 | Print |

kiss-of-deathPsychological 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.

Apparently, DM’s strategy is to black PR Marty and position every Indie as a subservient “follower.” Everyone in the DM camp keeps repeating this enemy line.

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 -- 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.

2. Never withdraw allegiance once granted.

3. Never desert a group to which you owe your support.

4. Never disparage yourself or minimize your strength or power.

5. Never need praise, approval or sympathy.

6. Never compromise with your own reality.

7. Never permit your affinity to be alloyed.

8. Do not give or receive communication unless you yourself desire it.

9. Your self-determinism and your honor are more important than your immediate life.

10. Your integrity to yourself is more important than your body.

11. Never regret yesterday. Life is in you today, and you make your tomorrow.

12. Never fear to hurt another in a just cause.

13. Don’t desire to be liked or admired.

14. Be your own adviser, keep your own counsel and select your own decisions.

15. Be true to your own goals.

-- 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.

This prank is so busted.
