This project does not condone or utilize Scientology policy regarding “suppression,” but it should be noted as part of the overall analysis that actions by David Miscavige seem to closely align with those Ron Hubbard described that someone would employ in an attempt to destroy Scientology:
The suppressive person (whom we’ve called a Merchant of Fear or Chaos Merchant and which we can now technically call the suppressive person) can’t stand the idea of Scientology. If people became better, the suppressive person would have lost. The suppressive person answers this by attacking covertly or overtly Scientology. This thing is, he thinks, his mortal enemy since it undoes his (or her) “good work” in putting people down where they should be.
There are three “operations” such a case seeks to engage upon regarding Scientology: (a) to disperse it, (b) to try to crush it and (c) to pretend it didn’t exist.
Dispersal would consist of several things such as attributing its source to others and altering its processes or structure.
With such policies in place, how come Church staff have continued to follow along with David Miscavige’s agenda to reedit all of Ron Hubbard’s works?
There is a lot of Scientology policy that can be cited with respect to the actions of David Miscavige, but Scientology policy in itself is quite “toxic” which deserves an extended analysis of its own – this analysis has been separated onto ScientologyAnalysis.com:
