David Miscavige Censors L. Ron Hubbard
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.
