    I hope it's going to be explained that TWTH booklet was written by co-conspirator Hubbard, while he was in hiding from the feds for the commission of felonies, and his wife was headed to federal prison, after the court ordered release of spying and covert dirty tricks (Fair Game) instructions by Hubbard, and their subsequent applications.

    In other words, Hubbard was covering his ass.

    By the way, TWTH, in the fine print, notes that it's a "NON RELIGIOUS moral code... it was written by L. Ron Hubbard as an individual work and is not part of any religious doctrine... it is therfore admissible for goverment departments and emplyees to distribute it."

    At this time its only listed in my materials index as possible sauce I'd like to hit. It's NOT in the topical index under a designated volume, so as I explained - its not slated to be included at this time. I also dont see anyplace it fits in cuz its a non-religious front group entity and NOT church doctrine.

    So sorry but your hoping up the wrong tree. Altho you make valid points why somebody should be targeting TWTH and all the more reason it should have its own dedicated project.

    old project is not the one in this thread, and its dated now since the SES legislation that Applied Scholastics was exploiting is on its way out.

    I have no filesharing links whatsoever in the publications related to the project ITT, so its not an issue. The leaks & legal subforum is where that hurts us.

    Nope, i see no need to revisit the applied scholastics project - my days of pooning states who approved Applied Scholastics are over since the legislation is falling by the wayside.

    Remember this is Scientology. It's primary tactic is deception. It's amoral. Anything goes, if it can be "gotten away with."

    'TWTH', also, is sometimes presented by Scientology as part of Scientology, when it is seen as being useful to Scientology to do so.

    This pattern of dishonesty is woven throughout Scientology.

    No, its represented to the outside world as a secular moral code. It lacks any branding of "Church" and falls under a secular business entity. And it's been defended as non-religous ad naseum.

    So although I would like to find a way to squarely include it under the "r" word cloak, its only in my material index as wishful thinking at this point. And I see no logical tie-in at this time. Sorry.
  10. AnonLover Member

    Getting back on track... I'm still hoping to get actual suggestions I can use & work with on improving presentation. I am not an artfag, but a tech writer. Fonts, colors schemes, graphics - not my thing. And I'm used to working under a comprehensive style guide that eliminates the need to even think about that stuff.

    So any pointers on what I can do on this front would be greatly appreciated since I'm working waaaay outside my comfort zone in that respect on this project.

    Not always. Scientology PRs have - depending on the person or public or circumstances, when dealing with the outside world (wogs) - at times, presented it as part of Scientology. Also, Scientology Volunteer Ministers hand out copies of TWTH.

    Usually, it's used as a front group "particle," but can be used as a PR "particle." Scientology Volunteer Ministers are a PR program.

    Very slippery.
  13. AnonLover Member

    ^^Slippery indeed. And is why I (currently) dont see a way to ultimately fit it into this project.

    So VMs are likely the only frontgroup I'll hit, and that's because their hugely interwined with common "r" themes in multiple ways: historically - the creation of the VM course timing-wise, symbolically - the collar, mockery factor - everybody & anybody was encouraged to do the VM course once upon an era when that was the huge image push & to be a scientologist = being a scientology "minister" cuz you did the VM course.

    ^^Thats not only conducive with my theme & goals, its ohhh so exploitable. Where as TWTH isn't that much conducive in those senses here, nor a good fit in general, albeit exploitable.
  14. Anonymous Member

    These days, since Volunteer Ministers usually wear t-shirts that say SCIENTOLOGY VOLUNTEER MINISTERS, they would be a PR group, not a front group, although, when dressed in street clothes, they might sometimes function as a front group. Years ago, it wasn't unusal for a Scientologist dressed as a minister - with clerical collar - to pose as a Christian minister, or create that impression while saying nothing to correct that impression (to achieve some objective), and that's still done, but today's Volunteer Misnisters usually advertise their being Scientologists, thus they serve a Scientology PR function, and not so much a front group function.

    But it varies, depending on what's useful.

    TWTH has a similar multiple (PR and also front group) function. Sometimes one, sometimes the other.

    Scientology's trickery is tricky.

    Thought Reform Goes To Church: Studies On Propaganda Techniques & Spiritual Abuse

    Posted on January 12, 2012 by thereformedtraveler


    From "Discernment Ministries International" which is interesting.., i never heard of this outfit, but they claim its a "Member of the International Order of Heresy Hunters"

    Bible thumper skeptics? who knew. But I like the above link because it draws almost entirely on theories from Lifton, Miligram, Singer etc. era of APA endorsed cultic studies that makes proactive cult classifications (it IS a cult, cuz of this that and other things),

    rather than drawing from the usual Walter Martin bible thumper "dis it as wrong" approach (it is NOT a church cuz of this that and other things).

    Your wish, is my command! Along with a couple other feedback suggestions this discussion kicked off that I got via PM convos from other chanologists looking to use these dox as harpoon ammo for their own local cell initiatives.

    Compare and contrast my original front & back matter template on the following link. Note my weak introductory outline was on a sidebar layout page shown on pg7 here:

    ^^Space for text was limited and placement was AFTER the Table of Contents.

    Now check out the reworked version on a full width page layout shown on pg3 here:

    ^^Now has better "outline" of what was hammered out ITT & elswhere, as well as being a lot closer to front. Latest changelog on proposed template change:

    Project Purpose

    The meaning of the word “religion” is entirely subjective, and strictly personalized, opinion of what it means to any given individual. Therefore, no one can define the answer to “Is Scientology a Religion?” for another person.

    This series of publications and related works is intended to serve as a public domain archive of source materials for further research to aid those who seek out such answers for themselves. The fair usage content included spans examples of the following documentation:

    • Propaganda the Church of Scientology promotes to the outside world for encouraging a wider acceptance of their beliefs and practices, while reinforcing their legitimacy as a New Religious Movement (NRM).
    • Propaganda the Church of Scientology promotes internally to their own members that slanders many other major religions and contradicts their claims of being compatible with other belief systems.
    • Additional documentation outlining the actual teachings and alternative medicine practices of the Church of Scientology that underscores why their system of beliefs is so controversial.
    • Academic analysis summaries from proponent, critical, and comparative sources that reflect a comprehensive look at all sides of many disputes surrounding the common of questions of Scientology’s religiosity.
    • Related media coverage that further examines the finer points of the “applied religious philosophy” that the Church of Scientology claims is at the heart of its campaign to “clear the planet”
    With the release and ongoing maintenance of this documentation archive of educational booklets and related works, Project Chanology Anonymous activists from aims to provide a virtual library of reference materials for all those seeking answers to the entirely subjective questions that arise when evaluating the nature of Scientology as a religion.

    Series Abstract

    The Scientology Religiosity? series of custom booklets and related works is a collection of source materials for supporting further research in the vein of comparative religion studies on the subject of Scientology and the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard. These fair use publications focus on cataloging Scientology beliefs in relation to other religions, traditional tenets of faith, ancient mythology, and major religious leaders.

    The materials included in each volume represent a small sampling of excerpts from the written works by L. Ron Hubbard in the form of books, essays, and lecture transcripts. Other materials range from official scriptures of the Church of Scientology in the form of policies and organizational publications, in addition to promotional materials. This documentation represents the core Scientology teachings and doctrines that is often referred to as “technology.”

    Another central aspect of this series of publications focuses on an assortment of privately distributed Advance! Magazine feature articles from a long running Spiritual History of Man series that L. Ron Hubbard personally mandated [1]. These articles and related Hubbard essays offer a unique view into how the Scientology dogma is promoted internally to adherents that are on an advanced stage of the “The Bridge to Total Freedom” (aka “The Bridge”), and pursuing the Operating Thetan (“OT”) levels of study.

    Thx! ^^Afterthought, maybe that title s/b "Mission Statement" nao that the text under it has been fattened up?
  28. Anonymous Member

    Looks great!
  29. AnonLover Member

    Thx! One last PITA question to finalize those changes...

    "Project Purpose" label vs. "Mission Statement" label. Which one do you think fits better?

    Currently tied at 2 opinions/votes each from PM feedback givers. I need at least one moar tie breaker opinion? (and/or - the more the merrier)

    Some random books I encountered that mention Scientology: 1998 by Svante Lundgren 2006 by J.C. Hallman 2009 by Chris Mikul, publisher: Millers Point, N.S.W. : Pier 9 2009 by by Margaret O. Hyde and Emily G. Hyde
    has a chapter called "Scientology, New Age spirituality, and more". It'd be interesting to know how accurate this one is since it's pitched as "an overview for teens", though back in 1977 Margaret O. Hyde published with Chapter 9 titled "Mind Control and the Religious Cults".
