One of the most unsettling aspects of the corrupt practices of organized scientology is their strictly enforced policies that foster an attack mentality. There has been a great deal written over the decades regarding the never ending list of lies and falsehoods perpetuated by L. Ron Hubbard that scientologist consider sacred because the person they worship as their "source" wrote them. These lies are blatantly apparent and extremely laughable to the average person (aka "raw meat") who has not become numb to normal common sense and human emotions due to being subjected to extensive brainwashing techniques.
Thus it is no surprise they continually avoid openly discussing their beliefs and vehemently insist that their upper level doctrines can not possibly be comprehended without thousands of hours of auditing, and tens of thousands of dollars of training. These facts alone practically scream "deception" while underscoring many other ominous concerns related to the long term effects of applying their pseudo-science and other arcane processes that are hailed as planet-saving dogma.
So it really shouldn't be a surprise that this devious crime syndicate also applies strict adherence to policies of always attacking their critics with whatever it takes to eliminate any scrutiny and avoid defending their own beliefs. However, it's still utterly shocking to me that an organization that calls itself a "religion" categorically defines any and all criticism as undeniable proof that the person leveling the criticism is a criminal. This creates one of the many contradictions within their belief system that doesn't make rational sense as shown in quoted sources below.
We of the Church believe:
[...]That all men have inalienable rights to their own defense;
[...]That all men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinions of others;
[...]And that no agency less than God has the power to suspend or set aside these rights, overtly or covertly. (Hubbard, The Creed of the Church of Scientology, 1954)
"NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology. ONLY agree to an investigation of the attackers. Start Investigating them promptly for FELONIES or worse using our own professionals. Start feeding lurid, blood, sex, crime actual evidence on the attacker to the press." (Hubbard, "Attacks on Scientology", HCO Policy Letter of 25 Feb 1966)
"The DEFENSE of anything is UNTENABLE. The only way to defend anything is to ATTACK. Whether it is in terms of personal conversation, public debate, or a court of law... The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than to win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly." (Hubbard, "The Scientologist: A Manual on Dissemination of Material" Ability, March 1955)
"Attackers are simply an anti-Scientology propaganda agency so far as we are concerned. They have proven they want no facts and will only lie no matter what they discover. So BANISH all ideas that any fair hearing is intended and start our attack with their first breath. Never wait. Never talk about us - only them. Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines. Don't use us." (Hubbard, "Attacks on Scientology", HCO Policy Letter of 25 Feb 1966)
The following film from Anonymous highlights the cult's attack mentality against peaceful protesters that speak out about the many injustices of this criminal organization. This serves as a very small sampling of their extremely unethical behavior in regards to their obsession of covering up their deceptive practices while vehemently denying their own executive level corruption.
Any organization willing to go these to these extremes with a complete lack of conscience surely has a vast amount to hide. Is it no wonder there is global movement speaking out about their dangerously abusive policies and hiding behind masks to protect their identity?
