David Miscavige Censors L. Ron Hubbard

September 7, 2009

Just read a disturbing post on Marty Rathbun’s blog, an example of the way David Miscavige has been “editing” LRH’s works.

In fact, it has to do with the quote that I posted on the right-hand sidebar about Orwell’s 1984.

That quote is from the Philadelphia Doctorate Course, at least, it used to be from the Philadelphia Doctorate Course. In Miscavige’s new edition, it’s been edited out.

Remember what it said in that 80-page Freedom Magazine?

“He [Miscavige] personally verified all books and lectures, their contents and their sequence so Scientologists can now study their religion in pure form and chronologically.  This project alone represented thousands of hours of Mr. Miscavige’s time in ensuring every word conformed precisely with Mr. Hubbard’s original works by reading and re-reading each manuscript and final book as well as listening to all 2,500 of Mr. Hubbard’s lectures.”

Well, here’s how that editing went down, in one instance (PDC lecture of 6 December 1952 “Formative State of Scientology, Definition of Logic”). The bolded words were in the earlier cassette edition, but have been edited out by David Miscavige in this Brave New edition.

“You’ll find almost any preclear can be given Creative Processing. And you could get ahold of him and flip the PDH out. That’s interesting, isn’t it?  In other words, you can take them out as fast they lay them down.

“Therefore, we really do have the remedy before the assault weapon is produced. Did you ever read poor old George Orwell’s 1984? Yes, yes, that’s wonderful. That would be — could be the palest imagined shadow of what a world would be like under the rule of the secret use of Scientology with no remedy in existence.

“It’s a very simple remedy. And that’s just make sure that the remedy is passed along. That’s all. Don’t hoard it and don’t hold it; and if you ever do use any Black Dianetics, use it on the guy who pulled Scientology out of sight and made it so it wasn’t available. Because he’s the boy who would be electing himself “The New Order.” And we don’t need any more new orders. All those orders, as far as I am concerned, have been filled.”

One wonders why this has been edited out. Is it because that is exactly what Miscavige has done? Elected himself as “the New Order”?

And one wonders what else is being edited out of LRH’s works in this Brave New World of Scientology.

    I agree, it’s pretty scary if Miscavige edit out things from LRH writings and words. LRH original materials should be made available to the public so that anybody can verifiy.

    Fortunately there are lots of old LRH books circulating in the world. Do not burn, discard or garbage them! Keep them for future references. Everything.

    Rebel I’d like to thank you for your public service. I think Marty and you are doing a great job. Keep up the good work 🙂

    What you say about Miscavige’s New Order is spot on!

    Here is a list of further alterations (high crimes) Miscavige has committed:

    You are doing a great job here with your blog keeping everyone abreast of the current scene. Keep it up! As an OTVlll myself, I know exactly what the other OTs are going through. It seems that we really don’t need to do anything more to bring about the downfall of the “church”. Miscavige is single handedly doing it himself…just what he likes to do! The next Freedom magazine will say “Mr. David Miscavige, in an effort to show parishoners and staff just how inefficient everyone but himself was, personally executed a brilliant program bringing about the downfall of the Church of Scientology”. Hip, Hip, Hooray!

    Straight from the horse’s mouth:
    “The second dynamic is the urge toward existence as a sexual activity. This dynamic actually has two divisions. Second dynamic (a) is the sexual act itself and the second dynamic (b) is the family unit including the rearing of children. This can be called the sex dynamic. ”
    “The second dynamic is CREATIVITY. Creativity is making things for the future and the second dynamic includes any creativity. The second dynamic contains the family unit and the rearing of children as well as anything that can be categorized as a family activity. It also incidentally includes sex as a mechanism to compel future survival. ”

    Is it the “sex dynamic” or is the “creativity dynamic” that includes sex only “incidentally”.

    Where did LRH ever write the latter, pray tell?

    This data must be made known to every onlines Scn without exception. Anybody reading this and who actually cares – I would say it isn’t optional, it is a DUTY to make the altering of the tech known about.

    Every Scn knows there is NO GREATER crime than altering the written or spoken words of LRH. Ultimately, bizarre though this may sound to some, rank and file Scns could well forgive DM all sorts of crimes that would be jaw-dropping to the average member of the public, including assault, mental and physical torture etc. But messing with LRH’s message? Never, never, never.

    Rebel Too, listen up. DM may be causing his own downfall but it’s not quite as simple as that. Every day he is still the Tyrant I/C is another day people are being hurt, abused, denied proper scientology etc. The process needs to be expedited; we can’t sit back as spectators “enjoying the show”. As an OT VIII you know this better than most. At the very least copy and paste the relevant parts of the post above and e mail it – anonymously if needed, to every online Scn in your address book.

    To Thoughtful, Rebel and others keeping this together, thank you, you ARE making a difference. To Marty R – you are my new personal hero, I can’t thank you enough.

    One of the first things you do to destroy a philosophy is destroy or at least unmock source.

    Keep up the good work!

    Given that DM chills out playing nintendo, passes a lot of time on his bikes, cars and private plane rides and with ball games and partying Lord knows with whom and where, while being on finest scotch, I have that question: WHO is helping him with that gigantic alter-is? WHO else is doing that dirty work and finding the respective refs (for him) which need to be altered to fit his nut mind frame?

      Good question Fidelio.

      Some of us have always suspected that lil’ Davy has had sponsors who have moved him into a position of power and have given him sage advice along the way on how to sabotage the subject.

      Probably the reason why he got rid of the GO and placed OSA under his direct control.

      Compare it to making Aldrich Ames DCI.

      Or getting Robert Hanssen elected to the Office of the President.

      With that scenario in mind I’d like to recommend a book by Charles McCarry who is sort of an American John LeCarre with a wicket sense of humor:

      You never know sometimes life imitates art 🙂
