Came across this the other day, right from the desk of L. Ron Hubbard.
It offers some fascinating insight into how he believed scientology could be sold to cure literally everything, and how to avoid running afoul of the law. The “nod, nod, wink, wink” is thinly disguised and his disdain for government and medical authorities is palpable.
It is interesting that this is written in 1962 and, like he had done since 1950, he claimed “we can clear” (until next month or year when he would announce the NEXT “breakthrough” that “now” made clearing possible) and that “of course, Clearing resolves “healing.” Scientology goes to great pains to get releases from people saying “we are not engaged in physical healing” but the reality is that they promote and sell it.
The most amazing thing about this document is how brazen it is.
We can “heal without engaging in healing” by some tricky wordplay. It’s simple. We promise to heal you because we “believe” you are not sick, just suppressed. We can get rid of the suppression and so you will be healed, but we didn’t heal you. See?
“We advertise to cure no diseases!” — wink, wink…
So, let’s advertise ourselves in the paper and on buses etc etc and “wipe out illness.”
