What Is Wrong With Scientology? Is Now Available

Order your copy at Amazon Books here: What Is Wrong With Scientology?

Excerpt from Chapter Seven – Confessional:

 In this wise, a new moral code is imposed upon individuals, covertly and against their own determinisms.  It is exacerbated by repeated questioning about the individual’s failure to report on other Scientologists.  After a while, a corporate Scientologist modifies her behavior accordingly, in order to avoid more security checks.  She not only edits her own behavior and thoughts, she attempts to do the same with Scientologist friends and family members, so that she does not get into trouble for overlooking such transgressions of others.  Thus, a process that was originally intended to free a person from the self-imposed mental prison she has created by her own inability to live up to what she considers right and ethical conduct becomes reversed.  The preclear is instead forced to agree to a new mental prison, imposed by the organization based on what it decrees to be right or wrong.  In short, the process replaces a person’s native judgment with a new judgment of its own.  In practice, it is a dark and painful operation, making a person less self-determined and more other-determined.

    It seems that the only solution open to corporate Scientologists to cope and carry on within their culture is to become moralists.  Moralists who enforce on self and others morals which have been implanted.  If corporate Scientologists police their own conduct fastidiously enough, and interfere enough with the behavior and conduct of their fellows, they reckon they might be spared the cost, embarrassment and pain of being ordered to further batteries of security checks. In fact, that is the only behavior that does avoid continual, expensive, and degrading security checks in corporate Scientology.

    This is yet another example of Scientology Inc.’s  reversal of end product.  Confessional technology was developed with the purpose to help an individual recognize she is the cause of her own destiny – and it has a long history of realizing that purpose.  This priceless technology has been twisted and corrupted to the point where now the individual winds up with her destiny blueprinted and dictated by the church.

    These blueprints are enforced through a related – and now similarly corrupted – technology of Scientology: the technology of ethics.

    Hi Marty, Ordered the book first. – have now read the excerpt from the book. Such a key out!! This is SO WELL DONE! Real Scientology – used by persons of good will to free and restore self-determinism vs this other squirrel thing the Church is doing. You wrote: “Thus, a process that was originally intended to free a person from the self-imposed mental prison she has created by her own inability to live up to what she considers right and ethical conduct becomes reversed. The preclear is instead forced to agree to a new mental prison, imposed by the organization based on what it decrees to be right or wrong. In short, the process replaces a person’s native judgment with a new judgment of its own. In practice, it is a dark and painful operation, making a person less self-determined and more other-determined.”

    From this quote from your book alone, I can see where the Independent movement is going. It’s the intention, the purpose. To free, and restore self determinism is the right road.From this moment on, I will ensure I stay on the correct one.

  5. A little late to the party-getting a copy too!

  6. Something that may interest the readers of this blog:

    They never learn ….

  7. Sunday after 5 pm Amazon Movers and Shakers Book list
    Marty is number 1

  8. Judging by the cover…

  9. The excerpts are very well written. Love the fact that the viewpoints have an explanation of the ‘how’ as opposed to just saying the Church practices black Dianetics without showing how for instance,

    Hope to see it on Amazon.ca (Canada) soon.

  10. Kind of off-topic, but not — Wikipedia has banned the Church of Scientology from editing articles about itself:

  11. Can’t wait to get my copy, Marty! Considering your vocabulary I may have to run around with a dictionary under my arm while reading your book :)))). Thanks in advance for major key – outs :).

  12. Marty’s book is number one in “Movers and Shakers” in Books on Amazon! Congrats Marty.

  13. Ok, just ordered it – yeahhh…

  14. Hot off the press!
    Wikipedia Bans Church of Scientology
    BY RYAN SINGELEMAIL AUTHOR 05.29.09 2:18 PM
    Wikipedia has banned the Church of Scientology from editing any articles. It’s a punishment for repeated and deceptive editing of articles related to the controversial religion. The landmark ruling comes from the inner circle of a site that prides itself on being open and inclusive.

    In a 10-1 ruling Thursday, the site’s arbitration council voted to ban users coming from all IP addresses owned by the Church of Scientology and its associates, and further banned a number of editors by name. The story was first reported by The Register.

    • This is slightly off topic but is just more of what is wrong with Church of Scientology

      • Not sure where/how people are getting this “news”, but it is three years old. It happened in 2009.

        • Margaret, it’s news to nearly everyone who’s only recently escaped the suppress of the corporate church. Remember that most of us were wearing self-imposed blinders, and knew only as much as the church management allowed us to know.

          Yes, this is definitely ‘news’.

  15. Very nice product, Marty. And your production has quantity, quality and viability. Thanks so much. I’ve ordered the book.

  16. 2:30 am Eastern time, the book is no longer in the top 100 on Amazon’s Movers and Shakers. I wonder what’s up with that? Some of the other books that were in the top 10 are still there.

    • It’s based on book sales — from what I was told by my friend who published his book a few months ago. So, put something on your Facebook page if you have one to remind folks.

      Not all motion is created by corporate scientology – best not to give them too much (assumed) power :)

  17. I had a nice comm cycle with Amazon.com about the book. The shipping time turned to be to EU 4 – 5 weeks. I asked if they could ship bigger load to UK as UK has very fast delivery to EU. I wrote the book is going to be bestseller in UK and EU. They offered to ship faster with the low shipping price. Now they have sent the book to me without any shipping charges and it will arrive around 9th.

  18. When are they going to start selling it in Japan ?

  19. FYI Marty, Co$ has been banned from Wikipedia! Enjoy 6 months of no harassment there regarding your book! *thumbs up*

    Marty,
    Book ordered. I know it will be a fantastic read, especially for an old timer like me. Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, http://www.bookrags.com/biography/miguel-hidalgo-y-costilla/, a priest hero of the Mexican Revolution, would be proud of you.

    Well done, amigo.

    I think after this, we may yet see the collapse of Corporate “Scientology”.

    Viva la Independencia!!!

    Some of you may need a translator for this.

    Alex

    • Alex,
      Corporate $cn. is already done as it produces no VFPs. What remains is only an apparency of the former entity. There is no life left in it.

  21. Ordered mine. Looking forward to it.

    Thanks Marty.

  22. Marty, no need to post this……please see my email re reported Wendy Honnor resignation.

  26. I just finished reading it…. And it was perfect! You covered every major point that everyone (whether Scientologist or not) NEEDS to know about Scientology and the Church, and you did it in a very easy-to-understand way.

    I purchased both the hardcopy and Kindle versions and posted 5-star reviews on Amazon. Well done Marty!!!

  27. Reblogged this on 31 Factors and commented:
    Buy and read this book.
    Marty, in his simple and straightforward style, presents the differences between a philosophy of individual self-determinism and a Corporation gone mad, Hell bent on domination and control.

  28. SunnyV,

    Thank you for clarifying!

    When I wrote that, I did not think I need to clarify it, because writing about a book before reading it, it’s not a review. However somebody did it.

    I just got a copy and rated it and made a positive comment on amazon, it helps! Thanks Marty.
