Thread: Books Scientology Doesn't Want You To Read

  1. #1

    Default Books Scientology Doesn't Want You To Read

    I thought it would be great to put all the known books exposing Scientology/Hubbard, etc. Those that have links are free downloads. Spread the word!

    • Jon Atack (1990), A Piece of Blue Sky http://usminc.org/books/APOBS.txt

    • Paulette Cooper (1971), The Scandal of Scientology. Also see her (1997) diaries. After having been sued eighteen times by the Church, to get a settlement Cooper reportedly “promised she would not republish the [former, Scandal] book and signed a statement saying fifty-two passages in it were ‘misleading’” (Rudin and Rudin, 1980) http://usminc.org/books/Scandalhtnl.zip

    • Russell Miller (1987), Bare-Faced Messiah http://usminc.org/books/BFM.txt

    • Robert Kaufman (1995), Inside Scientology/Dianetics

    • Cyril Vosper (1997), The Mind-Benders

    • George Malko (1970), Scientology: The Now Religion. Malko’s book was reportedly later “withdrawn by its publishers who also paid a legal settlement” (Wallis, 1976)

    • Monica Pignotti (1989), My Nine Lives in Scientology

    • Bent Corydon and L. Ron Hubbard, Jr. (1998), L. Ron Hubbard: Messiah or Madman?

    • Margery Wakefield (1991), Understanding Scientology http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Library/S...efield/us.html; (1993), The Road to Xenu http://www.american-buddha.com/cult....uwakefield.htm; and her (1996) autobiography, Testimony

    • Bob Penny (1993), Social Control in Scientology

    I know there have been more recently so please add to this list.

    Thanks!

    Great thread idea, thanks!

    If anyone is seeking the forbidden facts that Scientology doesn't want you to read, we should probably expand this to include scientology's own forbidden scripture that even most of its own parishioners do not know about. Understandably, this quickly becomes an unwieldy and vast ocean of information covered in ESMB and other great websites. But it could be SIMPLY FORMATTED on a thread like this to make it accessible and digestible in small bites.

    For example, if this thread was "Forbidden books & scripture Scientology doesn't want you to read" there could be individual subjects with a brief description and links. Key words like.....

    XENU: The holiest and most confidential Hubbard scripture that Scn warns may cause insanity or death to anyone who reads it without church permission.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xenu




    FAIR GAME: The Scn scripture that authorizes and compels Scientologists to destroy critics by lying, cheating, stealing their property, etc.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_Game_(Scientology)
    http://www.xenu.net/fairgame-e.html
    etc...


    What I would suggest is that this great thread be used as a virtual WORKSHOP and clearinghouse (so to speak, lol) to compile and format an index and REFERENCE TOOL that could, perhaps, be memorialized when it's well-seasoned (later) in a sticky thread that gives curious readers a direct guide to Scientology's monstrous secret doctrines and whistleblower's exposes thereof.

    It might take months of assembling the contributions of many to bring it up to speed, but in the future such a reference tool could be linked and sent to countless people via email.

    I hope I am not making this sound overcomplicated, because at its core it is a SIMPLE TOOL that allows truth-seekers to scan and click a multitude of Scientology's forbidden world, without having to do the months or years-long searching that all of us have already done.

    Just an idea.

    Humbly tendered and all that, ya know....

    ML,

    Hell Ruin Hoaxard


    EDIT NOTE: OOPS, those Xenu links were supposed to be just click-links, not show up the video. Wasn't sure how to do that. Please advise.

    I never felt as free as when I freed myself from "Total Freedom".

    For offended Scientologists reading this blasphemy about L. Ron Hubbard---my apologies for talking about real life without lying to you, like Scientology, with goo-goo theta-talk. I know you don't have a floating needle right now. You're not supposed to.

    Not to mention the forbidden scriptures that many of its parishioners DO know about.
    Such as the entire LRH library that was f**ked with by the evil typesetters. For the parishioners who already paid at least once for this library it must have been a bit disturbing when the books they ALREADY paid for became forbidden.

    Of course when DM's successor takes over I'm sure there will be an announcement that DM altered the scriptures and all books and tapes with his revisions will now have to be destroyed. And of course the original unaltered LRH library will now need to be reissued AGAIN. Please see the Reg to pre-order your copies now.

    Hmmmmmm, my post was probably something of a derail.
    Getting back to the purpose of the thread, here's a couple more books that Scientology doesn't want you to read:

    Combatting Cult Mind Control: The #1 Best-selling Guide to Protection, Rescue, and Recovery from Destructive Cults by Steve Hassan.
    http://www.amazon.com/Combatting-Cul...8966274&sr=8-1

    Releasing The Bonds: Empowering People to Think for Themselves, also by Steve Hassan
    http://www.amazon.com/Releasing-Bond...8966274&sr=8-2

    "Of course, if it's true that Mr. Hubbard was never injured during the war,
    then he never did heal himself using Dianetics principles,
    then Dianetics is based on a lie, and then Scientology is based on a lie." - Tommy Davis

    Jokes aside, has the cult actually banned the above? Link?

    Also missing from the list, Orwell's "1984" - http://www.mondopolitico.com/library/1984/1984.htm
