Diane Richardson on Mind-Control

Anecdotal Evidences


 

In the middle of the discussion, Monica comes up with a decisive "proof" for her argument: a post from Ralph Hilton (a Scientology freezoner). She claims that this constitutes a better proof than any double-blind study. Of course, it is a proof of nothing else than the fact that the accusation of mind-control IS subjective, pejorative and prejudicial. It also shows that it really rest on nothing else than questionable anecdotal evidence.

Monica, I'm not at all sure why you have directed this response to Ralph Hilton to me. Surely, as a professed social scientist, you must realize that one cannot reach generalized conclusions about *all* humans based on the words of one individual.

I also don't understand how you can assume that Ralph Hilton has a "mind" that's being "controlled" based on the statements he has made in reply to you. Did you reach that conclusion just because his opinion differs from yours? Or have you interviewed and analyzed Ralph Hilton so thoroughly that you can be positive that he is a victim of "mind control"? Have you considered that he might be suffering from something other than "mind control"? Or have you narrowed your vision to the point where the world is composed only of cultists and anti-cultists?

The chances of Ralph Hilton finding your reply to him under a header addressed specifically to me (in all caps) are rather slim. Are you really interested in having him respond to the questions you ask him below? If you are, I'd suggest you change your header to "RALPH - Here's your Proof!"

>Monica:
>>>I realize that this is not something that most people want to believe, that our minds can be controlled but until we do come to grips with this issue, it will continue to happen to people. If we can learn about these processes, only then can we prevent such atrocities from happening.

>Ralph:
>>Monica - maybe your mind can be controlled - mine can't without a very considerable amount of duress. And that is a GREAT deal of duress. Scientology gave me that. If you had studied LRH fully you might have realized that - but you preferred to be reasonable.

>Oh I see, Ralph. I am weak and out-tech and you are strong, in-tech and totally on-source! Sorry, I don't buy it. From the statement you just made (chock full of loaded language that I didn't study LRH and preferred to be reasonable, whatever that means), you are still under the influence of Elron Flubbard and the tek which is still controlling your mind. At least I had the strength to confront what was really going on and the BS I had fallen for and I did it after six years and got the hell out. Believe, me it took a tremendous amount of strength for me to get up and walk out and I've never regretted it for a moment. Six years of studying scienotek was quite enough for me, thank you very much. It isn't that I didn't study the Scienotek, it's that, after doing nothing but study it for six years, I chose of my own free will to reject it. On that point, I am completely reasonable and rational and proud of it. I have found much better in the 20 years I've been out.

>And what would you call being in the Sea Org and the RPF? Isn't that alot of duress? However, it doesn't take physical torture for a mind to be controlled, no matter what LRH said. It can be done in a much more low-key, subtle manner and to some quite intelligent and strong people.
