When you are raised in an outsider culture you come to view the world as an outsider. The culture you inhabit is something to be conquered, coopted, or used. Since it is not your own its morals are vile, its people grotesque and "out ethics" (as Scientologists would say). It is filled with Suppressives and Suppressive Persons, its politicians are all SPs. Everyone is a "wog" and "aberrated." Basically, fuck the human race. They're all degenerates.
But something can always be done about it and that something is clearing the planet—helping everyone go clear. (That is, achieve the state of Clear). A clear is basically someone with no hangups, neuroses or chronic illnesses. According to Scientology, if everyone was Clear there would be no war, poverty, blah blah blah.
Literally, there would be world peace. World. Fucking. Peace.
This is the sort of shit I was trained to believe.
It gives you a rather interesting perspective about politics. The human race is massively fucked up. When you are a Scientologist (I was forced into it by family), you have this perspective that Scientology has all the answers. Of course this is absurd. Scientologists can't even "handle" their own screwed up families let alone "handle the problems of mankind." For people who are supposed to gain supernatural abilities as the achiever higher levels, the policy of disconnection and the families it has ruined is a direct contradiction of having achieved "cause over life."
Being raised in this made my politics really interesting.
Most of the Scientologists I know are libertarians. A few are Democrats. In 2008, most voted for either the Republican candidate, or Ron Paul. Since Scientologists believe they have all the answers their politics is a mixture of "get off our backs" and "the government should pay Scientology to solve all the worlds social problems." This was my position as late as 2005.
Scientology politics is a mixture of paranoia and naivete. On the one hand they think the "psychs" (psychiatrists) are like Dr. Evil, while on the other hand they are oblivious to leftism, mass immigration, etc. They literally think there are 12 Suppressive Persons who run the world and are hell-bent on destroying Scientology. (I can't for the life of me remember the reference though). They think psychs destroyed previous technologically advanced civilizations. Seriously. They actually think that.
As a result, I have always had an outsider politics. I am now in my 30's and I realized recently that I have spent my whole life viewing America from the outside. When guys like Richard Spencer talk about the "huWhite" race they are talking about something they belong to. How weird. I belonged to a cult spanning multiple continents. That was my tribal identity. Now I belong to nothing. It was a small group (only about 30,000 members) but it is a global one. It's kind of like being Jewish without all the Holocaust stuff. Scientologists very much believe they are persecuted. They just don't have 5,000 years of evidence to back up the assertion. And there are Jewish Scientologists. One of my uncles (by marriage to an aunt) is one.
There are Christian Scientologists, Mormon Scientologists, and even Jewish Scientologists. But they all regard themselves as Scientologists first, and whatever else second. Even Scientology's own bylaw supersedes government law. The state might disagree, but The Church does not care. It is a "rule by higher law" system in Scientology. Scientologists aren't allowed to sue each other. They have their own harsh justice system. They have their own university. They have their own directory. They all do business with each other. They even have their own dating system.
When you are a Scientologist you have a tribe that centers in LA and Clearwater. Everyone knows each other. Everyone works for each other. Everyone hangs out at the same bars and coffee shops, visits the same restaurants, goes to George's General Store, etc. There are Scientology schools, Scientology doctors, and a personal physician.
In retrospect I should have just stayed a Scientologist and become "inactive." Then I would have kept all the social benefits of having a tribe without having to put up with the bullshit. It would have been hypocritical, but I am 11 years into leaving Scientology and I am beginning to understand the meaning of the term "social isolation." I cannot believe that everyone lives this way for their whole lives. Because Scientology is located in Hollywood it has a huge supply of hot women. Because of its teachings its women are basically traditional. Scientology's morals are stuck in the 80's because Hubbard died then. There is no gender weirdness there, no tolerance of homosexuality, and Hubbard explicitly said, and I quote;
"A society in which women are taught anything but the management of a family, the care of men, and the creation of the future generation is a society which is on its way out."And;
"The historian can peg the point where a society begins its sharpest decline at the instant when women begin to take part, on an equal footing with men, in political and business affairs, since this means that the men are decadent and the women are no longer women. This is not a sermon on the role or position of women; it is a statement of bald and basic fact."Jim could have written that.
"If man is to rise to greater heights, then women must rise with him or even before him. But she must rise as woman and not as, today, she is being misled into rising – as a man. It is the hideous joke of frustrated, unvirile men to make women over into the travesty of men, which men themselves have become."All quotes are from the original edition of the book A New Slant on Life published in 1988 (the old edition, before they censored that part).
From his mouth to reactionary ears. Reactionaries are rediscovering this basic stuff. Obviously, cultures that have gender roles where women focus on having children will out-compete and out-reproduce those that do not. Gnon's law is iron. The fact that even a cult could recognize this reality is a testament to the birth rate increasing effects of religion. Ron wanted Scientologists to have lots of kids. That's why he was so against abortion, and why he was so into traditional womanhood. When you are trying to build a faith, reproductive logic inevitably follows, and that logic is trad logic.
I left hundreds of hot traditional women behind because I couldn't stand bullshit. I removed myself from a circle of job opportunities that are available nowhere else. Get this: I was once offered the job of "Executive Vice President of Quality Control" at a mid-sized insurance firm. All I had to do was shut the fuck up a pretend to be a Scientologist. Why the fuck did I leave? Something about integrity? Fuck me over a barrel.
If I had taken that route I would probably be some high paid executive manager now with a hot trad wife. Many Scientology women are basically 80's housewives with contemporary hairstyles. All of them are more conservative than a blue-haired pansexual feminist.
Before we go on allow me to define a couple of terms: "second dynamic." It basically means "sex , and the product of sex, which is children." The second dynamic is divided into two parts: 2a, and 2b. Second dynamic "a" refers to sexual relationships. Second dynamic "b" refers to families, extended families, and kids. It is a classification system in Scientology. Everything in the universe is classified into 8 parts called "dynamics." They are called dynamic because they are "constantly in motion." The word "dynamic" means "characterized by constant change." You can watch this strangely perky video here on the subject. Basically, the eight dynamics (categories) of the universe are;
Dynamic 1: The individual
Dynamic 2: Sex, and the product of sex which is children.
Dynamic 3. Groups, including racial groups
Dynamic 4. Humanity as a whole.
Dynamic 5. Plants, animals, and living things.
Dynamic 6. Inanimate objects like rocks, clouds, and mountains
Dynamic 7. Spiritual existence
Dynamic 8. The Supreme Being, God, or infinity (Scientology is hazy on this one)
The second term I want to define is the concept of an emotional tone level. In Scientology emotion is also categorized on a chart. (Hubbard just loved to put things into chart form). Emotions are assigned numbers from the "highest" emotions to the "lowest" emotions. Like this;
3.3 Strong interest
2.9 Mild interest
1.2 No sympathy
1.15 Unexpressed resentment
1.1 Covert hostility
0.375 Making amends
0.0 Body death
I have omitted the bottom half of the scale, and some other emotions that would require further definitions. There is a lot of terminology in Scientology and if you aren't careful you can get lost. Basically, it's a scale of emotion.
L. Ron Hubbard didn't stop with his views on women. Below he is talking about homosexuals. Remember that the term "second dynamic" means "sexual relationships" in this context. When he says the word "level" he is referring to the emotion categorized as level 1.1 --Covert hostility.
"People on this level on the second dynamic are intensely dangerous in the society, since aberration is contagious. A society which reaches this level is on its way out of history, as went the Greeks, as went the Romans, as goes modern European and American culture. Here is a flaming danger signal which must be heeded if a race is to go forward."Allow me to translate into plain English.
People who are on this level (gays/lesbians/1.1/covert hostility) with regards to sex are intensely dangerous in the society, since aberration (sexual neurosis) is contagious. A society which reaches this level is on its way out of history, as went the Greeks, as went the Romans, as goes modern European and American culture. Here is a flaming danger signal which must be heeded if a race is to go forward."Also Hubbard;
"At 1.1 on the tone scale we enter the area of the most vicious reversal of the second dynamic. Here we have promiscuity, perversion, sadism, and irregular practices."And;
"Such people should be taken from the society as rapidly as possible and uniformly institutionalized; for here is the level of the contagion of immorality, and the destruction of ethics"All references are from Science of Survival.
He is talking about the physical removal of gays from society. Hubbard's whole contention is that gays, lesbians, and all other perverts are basically subversive of society, and have to be segregated to keep the society healthy. Scientology believes that human neurosis is contagious: that spreads from one individual to another.
Considering the explosive increase in the number of transgendered people I see no reason to think Hubbard was wrong on this issue. Sexologists might say that people are "exploring their sexualities and finding out who they really are," but one could just as easily run with Hubbard's definition and say;
"muh contagion of aberration."I mean really: is there actually a difference? One more definition: to "aberrate" means "to make crooked, to bend, to diverge from a straight path." Aberration is to Scientology as degeneracy is to the reactosphere.
What is the cause of all this aberration/degeneracy?
Well, where the reactosphere sees Progs, Nazis see Jews, and where Nazis see Jews, Scientologists see psychiatrists. Here is Hubbard on the cause of degeneracy and social failure;
"Anything that a criminal seeks to obtain can be obtained without crime if one is bright enough. Criminals, as police can tell you, are usually very, very stupid. The things they do and clues they leave around are hallmarks of very low IQ. The “bright” criminal is found only in fiction. Now and then a Hitler comes along and begins a myth that the highly positioned are criminal—but Hitler (and Napoleon and all their ilk) were stupid beyond belief. Hitler destroyed himself and Germany, didn’t he? And Napoleon destroyed himself and France. So not even the highly placed criminals are bright. Had they really been bright, they could have accomplished a successful reign without crime.
"The bones of old civilizations are signboards of stupidity. The jails are bursting with people so stupid they did bad things and even did those uncleverly.
"So let us look at psychs again—what they call “treatment” is a suppression (by shocks, drugs, etc.) of the ability to think. They are not honest enough, these psychs, being just dramatizing psychotics themselves for the most part, to publish the fact that all their “treatments” (mayhem, really, when it is not murder) make people more stupid.
"These actions of shock and crazy evaluative counseling, etc., lower IQ like an express elevator going down to the basement. They do not tell legislators this or put it in their books. This is why they say “no one can change IQ.” They are hiding the fact that they ruin it.
"So the psych in prisons is engaging in an action (shocking or whatever) that makes people who are already criminal even stupider.
"Although they obviously tell their victims to go out and commit more crimes (the psychoanalysts urge wives to commit adultery, for instance), they would not have to do this at all to manufacture more crime.
"Their “treatments” make the criminals more stupid. The stupid commit more crimes.
"It is pretty simple, really, when you look at it.
"Why does the state support psychiatrists and psychologists? Because the state is stupid? Or does it want more citizens robbed and killed? It’s one or the other. Take your choice.
"One is bright and is moral and honest and does well or one is stupid and does badly.
"The answer to crime is raising IQ. But only the Scientologist can do that."
Ah, and here is that reference I forgot.
"Our enemies are less than twelve men. They are members of the Bank of England and other higher financial circles. They own and control newspaper chains and they, oddly enough, run all the mental health groups in the world that had sprung up […]. Their apparent programme was to use mental health, which is to say psychiatric electric shock and pre-frontal lobotomy, to remove from their path any political dissenters […]. These fellows have gotten nearly every government in the world to owe them considerable quantities of money through various chicaneries and they control, of course, income tax, government finance — [Harold] Wilson, for instance, the current Premier of England, is totally involved with these fellows and talks about nothing else actually."Race is also an interesting thing in Scientology. The Church does not believe in racial bigotry and in true universalist form it welcomes all races, and sends missionaries to places in Africa, the Far East, etc. But Scientology morals are 80's morals: separate but equal. There is the infamous Joburg Security Check. A security check is like a lie detector exam. The equipment used: the E-meter, is actually part of a polygraph device, meaning, one of the components found in the E-meter is also found in the polygraph.
One of the questions on the sec check is;
"Have you ever slept with a member of a race of another colour?"Because that is "out-ethics." (Immoral/evil)
Hubbard was the first shitlord.
IQ related to crime? Check.
Trad morality? Check.
Gays are bad? Check.
A (((group))) trying to destroy the world? Check.
Globalist bankers are evil? Check.
No race mixing? Check.
Sorry if the comparison between Scientology and NRx feels insulting.
Lastly, from the perspective of a reactionary former Scientologist, the entire left looks like merely a crusade by socially atomized tribeless people to destroy any tribes—especially the tribes of White people. This is all driven out of pure malevolent envious hatred. They have noting, so neither can anyone else. They are socially isolated, so everyone else must be also. Of course people who have no tribe are going to despise intolerance. They are alone. When I was a Scientologist I never minded that everyone hated me. I had a tribe to back me up. My tribe, the Scientology tribe, had gone to war with the IRS and won. We had infiltrated the FBI and targeted the families of people who fuck with us. I grew up with neighbors who has intimidated the FBI. Why would I fear their hate? If anything they all feared us!
Being a Scientologist was like having your own mafia.
The more I live on Earth the more convinced I am that envy runs the world. All these lonely desperate socially isolated people just need to get a tribe. Everything works better with one. There is more job security, more safety, more women, better morals, better health, and nobody fucks with you. It's wonderful. Even when it's a cult.
