LRH has said that "Man is basically good". He also said on the XDN tapes that "A thetan is stubborn. He never gives in." I think it is generally accepted that humans have a moral core. Whether one refers to karma, O/W sequence, problems and solutions or whatever, a person will not do something unless they believe it is the "right thing to do" whether others see it as justified or not. The way to take a group of people and get them to follow orders is to convince them that there actions serve a higher purpose and is therefore the "right thing to do" even though they may not agree. This is the way to overcome "Thetan stubbornness" and resistance. It allows one to bypass their personal moral core and fell right about doing wrong. We have seen this time and again: People following Hitlers orders to kill the jews because "they were sub-human and parasitic"; the Syrian President gassing his own citizens because "they are rebellious enemies of the State" and of course the well documented inhumanities the Scientology against its own flock and staff in the name of "Clearing the planet and greatest good across the dynamics". In all these cases, humanity supresses its moral core "for the greater good". It is a well known mechanism for controlling the masses.
