How Scientology uses PROPAGANDA to control you!
It is done so covertly because it is just repeated over and over on glossy card stock mailed to your door daily. Phone calls inviting you to come hear the EXCITING NEWS - EXPANSION - very exciting!!
Everyone in the Morgue tells you to "get up the Bridge". Go CLEAR! Do the L's! Go OATEE! Donate to the IAS! Donate to the Idle Morgue - WHO'S NEXT? Go on course! Do your training! COMMANDS given over and over and over - impinge on the mind! I remember thinking that I did not care about the bridge and over time-I was telling myself I HAD TO GET UP THE BRIDGE. Thank god I jumped off!!
Scientology makes nice suggestions: Don't look at the news - ENTHETA! Don't talk about ANY ENTHETA! Nice little mechanism so eventually they are controlling you and you think it is your idea. This is how they keep the truth from being revealed as they fleece you out of all of your money and time and family!
Look at what Hitler did - all through PROPAGANDA!
The following was taken from a "mind control" article I ran into on the internet.
Your thinking is taken over before you have realized it and you are manipulated--all victims are manipulated through coercion and through trickery tactics, such as the ones we've mentioned.
And then, of course, the programming is usually settled with great fear, so you're afraid to move, you've afraid to speak, afraid to jump out. And once you're in, which could be indoctrinated in a matter of weeks, once you've seen the television program, and it's all geared toward your way of thinking at that time. "Wow! They are saying things that make sense." Well, of course, that's what propaganda is, it seemed to make sense.
All the people who saw the videos, the movies, or were told about the paradise under Hitler's regime; the trains, thinking they were going to a wonderful land, a wonderful paradise, great things for them, and they ended up in an incinerator. You see, that's propaganda.
"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way round, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise" ~ Adolf Hitler
Cults operate on a Hitler type of thinking. So I don't want to say anything that makes you think, "Wow! This is really wild stuff." It isn't, it's very basic. That's the sad part.
