All of them, those in power, and those who want the power, would pamper us, if we agreed to overlook their crookedness by wilfully restricting our activities.

The real reason for Hubbard's and Scientologists' hatred and vilification of medicine is spelled out by Hubbard in his policy letter of June 29, 1971. Hubbard needed, and the Scientology cult's present leaders need, something on which to blame Scientologists' "case" or "upsets;" that is, the cult's all too common failures. Hubbard needed, and now the Miscavige cabal needs, as all fascist groups need, a group or class of people to attack. Medicine, and, most loudly and violently, its subset of psychiatry, is Hubbard's, Miscavige's and all Scientologists' scapegoat. It is the subject, which, along with its practitioners, Scientologists blame for all their own organizational ills, their cult's own overt products, and their cult's own criminality.
Medicine is the mandated projection carrier for Scientologists. They project their failures, and also their crimes and aberrations, onto medical professionals. Since Scientologists are only permitted projection as their psychological condition and the "solution" for that condition, they require projectees, and Hubbard orders as "policy" that medicine fill that role. Their cult's leaders' repetitive, relentless ranting and psychological manipulation brings Scientologists to project onto, to beastify, to hate and to attack medicine and its practitioners. That gets Hubbard and his "technology" off the hook for Scientology's many cases, upsets and utter failures.
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 29TH JUNE 1971
Limited issue. DG's AG's GO Bureau IV PRO Legal PRO Hat
Policy is that we assign any case or upset in Scientology to past damage and interference with the person by medicine or psychiatry. They were sent to us after medicine or psychiatry had already destroyed them. We cannot be blamed for psychiatric or medical failures.
By continually repeating this, make the AMA, Nats, etc very wary of using our name on these psychiatric and medical failures. Both subjects are guilty and the statement is demonstrably true. Use it often. Make it known to the enemy that this is our policy as a restraint on their fetid imaginations: "Every time you attack us we will disclose more records of your failures".

This PL is a starrate checkout item on the Guardian Office (GO) Intelligence Course. See Part D, "Strategy," item 17, p. 12. It is also a starrate item on the Office of Special Affairs (OSA) Intelligence Course. See Section M: "Depopularizing the Enemy," item 17, p. 17. The cult defines "starrate checkout" as "a very exact checkout which verifies the full and minute knowledge of the student, of a portion of study materials and tests his full understanding of the data and ability to apply it." HCOB 21 Sept 1970
That Scientologists' hatred for medical doctors, and even their more obstreperous hatred for psychiatrists, is simply part of the Hubbard-Miscavige brainwash, is shown by the fact that virtually every person who leaves the cult also discards the anti-medicine hatred. Indeed, many people who escape the Scientology brainwash go on to academic study in the medical and psychological fields. But almost everyone who leaves the cult discovers that doctors are not the evil entities that they had been indoctrinated by Scientology into hating, and that doctors and medicine are certainly not responsible for the failures and overt products of Hubbard's "technology." The "tech" doesn't work, not because of what medicine did to the cult's customers. The "tech" doesn't work because it doesn't work.
Hubbard's guilty knowledge that what he was writing in this policy letter is false, and in fact evil and destructive, is shown by his security rating for the PL of "confidential." Confidential policies in Scientology are, as every staff member understands, senior to non-confidential policies. Scientology's blaming medicine and psychiatry for the cult's own cases and upsets is a very senior policy, which trumps whatever non-confidential "policies" exist that assign any other cause to technical failures.
Any Scientologist who, when dealing with people outside of the cult, did not blame medicine and psychiatry for the cult's cases and upsets, would, of course, be guilty of out-security, an automatic "treason" offense. The Scientologist would also be guilty of violating a number of the ten points of "Keeping Scientology Working." Since any violation of KSW is a "suppressive act" or "high crime," for which Scientologists can be declared a "suppressive person" and fair gamed to the point of total obliteration, they have a life-or-death motivation to blame medicine and psychiatry as Hubbard orders them blamed. And, as mentioned above, blaming medicine and psychiatry is the only solution Scientologists are permitted to the psychological condition their "technology's" failures generate.
How do Scientologists scapegoat medicine or psychiatry for their cult's disastrous failures, such as Lisa McPherson, who had been a Scientologist for many years, had gone insane while being subjected to the cult's "technology," and who had no history of psychiatric therapy? Scientologists applying the cult's "tech," in fact, prevented Lisa from obtaining psychiatric and medical help, and locked her up, and almost certainly tied her up, so that only their "tech" could be applied to her. How do Scientologists project their killing of Lisa McPherson onto the medical and psychiatric subjects and professions?
Hubbard provides the clear answer is his "technical" Bulletin of 5 June 1984R "False Purpose Rundown Series 1R False Purpose Rundown."
It was the aim of these psychs back on the whole track to very carefully push in people's anchor points to prevent them from reaching. The psychs were, themselves, a bunch of terrified cowards, and the prevention of reaching was one facet of their operation. Handling overts, withholds and nonsurvival purposes with the False Purpose Rundown has proven highly effective in undoing the effects of the "work" of psychs on the whole track, and restoring the thetan's willingness and ability to reach.
If Scientologists cannot find a current medical of psychiatric condition or history to blame for their cult's failures, flaps and felonies, they simply project it onto the whole track psychs, the medical professionals who, Hubbard says, existed way, way back on the track -- millions, billions or trillions of years ago. It's utter irresponsible madness, of course, but no Scientologist dares to question this insane projection, because to do so would be a "high crime," punishable with being fair gamed and destroyed. The Scientologist, naturally, would also become another case or upset to be blamed on medicine or psychiatry. And if the poor Scientologist had no doctors or psychiatrists in his life..... well blame him on the whole track psychs.
