Help! INFODUMP: Hubbard Quotes on disability / disabled needed The 'church' of scientology's policy on disability being discussed here: http://forums.whyweprotest.net/26-think-tank/disabled-access-uk-churches-71398/2/ We need L Ron Hubbard quotes on disability, the disabled, less able Please dump just quotes here so they're in one place for any future projects - discussion is on the other thread. Thank you. So far we have : Hubbard quote on people 'low on tone scale' From "Science of Survival" "The only answers would seem to be the permanent quarantine of such ['1.1, or covertly hostile, low-toned'] persons from society to avoid the contagion of their insanities and the general turbulence which they bring into any order, thus forcing it lower on the scale, or processing such person until they have attained a level on the tone scale which gives them value. In any event, any person from 2.0 down on the tone scale should not have, in any thinking society, any civil rights of any kind, because by abusing those rights he brings into being arduous and strenuous laws which are oppressive to those who need no such restraints." ... "There are only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on the tone scale, neither one of which has anything to do with reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts. The first is to raise them on the tone scale by un-enturbulating some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes. The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow." ... "The sudden and abrupt deletion of all individuals occupying the lower bands of the tone scale from the social order would result in an almost instant rise in the cultural tone and would interrupt the dwindling spiral into which any society may have entered. It is not necessary to produce a world of clears in order to have a reasonable and worthwhile social order; it is only necessary to delete those individuals who range from 2.0 down, either by processing them enough to get their tone level above the 2.0 line - a task which, indeed, is not very great, since the amount of processing in many cases might be under fifty hours, although it might also in others be in excess of two hundred - or simply quarantining them from the society. A Venezuelan dictator once decided to stop leprosy. He saw that most lepers in his country were also beggars. By the simple expedient of collecting and destroying all the beggars in Venezuela an end was put to leprosy in that country." -------------------------------- From: Scientology, The Clearwater Bar Association, and Judge Greer One of Scientology's major goals is to change society's views about death, dying, and those L. Ron Hubbard considered to be "past the half-way point": the disabled. Scientologists believe (1) that a disabled person is in such a state due to his or her own failings, (2) the disabled person will deliberately move in the direction of death, and (3) disabled people (Individuals who score low on the emotional tone scale) will also bring death to those around them. (See L. Ron Hubbard's book, Self Analysis, chapter 4) Scientology teaches that if a person is disabled it is his or her fault. ----------------------- From 'The Free Being (1963)' On FDR (who he refers to as Frankie the Limper) and polio For instance, Frankie the Limper, over there, during the 30s, he wrote out a big check. He wrote out a big check. He only thought in terms of billions and things, and he wrote out this three billion dollar check and he handed it over and he says, “Build an atom bomb, and there you are, wipe out cities and so on.” Well, the knucklehead, he had Congress under his thumb, he had everything under his thumb, it was all set and roaring to go. He could have written out another check for three billion dollars and given it to another group and said, “Build a defense for an atom bomb.” But you notice he didn’t do that. See what I mean? He said, “Build an atom bomb. Here’s three billion dollars.” He didn’t say at the same time, “Here’s three billion dollars, build a defense for an atom bomb.” So, you lay into a meat - body society the skill to trap a thetan. Why don’t you teach him how to free one, see? ---------------------------- ACC lecture from 1954 (9 years before the above St. Hill lecture) Hubbard thought and taught that FDR engaged in mass hypnosis to give everyone the psychosomatic symptoms of polio. Well, this practice of hypnotism is an expert, well-travelled, extremely well practiced suppression on as many dynamics as possible. Where one individual is concerned, or where a group is concerned. It's also expressed as "mass hysteria", you'll have large masses of people go into an hysteria of getting a similiar illness. It is enough for some fellow to come along and be President of the United States -- who had a gimpy leg, and was moaning and groaning around about polio -- to shoot upscale the percentage of polio incidence in the United States to a point where it's now quite an alarming illness. See, he popularized it. Actually he was in a position of authority and control and he all of a sudden could start talking about this polio, polio, and giving himself, an object example, of people who have illness or actually simply communicating-- Any form, any shape is a communication, by the way, let me interject that. Any form, any shape is a communication. When a person becomes absolutely insistent upon communication, he starts to take solid form. When a person is entirely insistent upon communication he gives it solid form, you understand that. You put it in writing. That's the first thing, next thing you know he's wearing a somatic. This solid form relay of communication is expressed on a sort of hypnotic level. All of a sudden someone in power can communicate to everybody about what they ought to have, you know, by just being there, they ought to immediately have themselves a fine case of polio, and sure enough polio becomes an alarming disease. Adults all over the place are getting polio now. Who ever heard of polio before this? Moar Hubbard quotes needed everywhere. They make our job easy.
