I came across this the other day.
It is relevant to nothing current, it just encapsulated so much of Hubbard’s approach.
His overriding concern with “bad publicity.”
His remedy was not auditing — which he claimed was the only cure to “aberration” and bad behavior — but to “beat their teeth in personally.”
I assume this piece is from an OOD’s item on the Apollo, he was a little more careful in his broad public statements. Though “I would have taken such a screwball out of the running so fast he would have thought he had been hit by a Mack truck, and I don’t mean thought-wise” in one of his Professional Auditor Bulletins is pretty graphic.
This is the blessing that makes it OK for Sea Org members to engage in physical assault. That sort of thing starts at the top — it began with Hubbard, was popularized widely by David Miscavige, and is now standard operating procedure throughout the Sea Org.
