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.

asked and called into question if there is an
RPF's RPF in
Scientology and if children are assigned to the
Project Force]. Yes on both counts. I was on the RPF for
16 months and while there were no children while I was
there (the youngest was, I believe, about 16), I had
spoken with others who had served with children and I
even met one youngster (about 12) who had been on the
children's RPF on the ship.
As to the RPF's RPF, there is one and I was assigned to it. It is where one goes when one first goes to the RPF. Let me tell you about it, using their definitions.
Scientology officials like to say that the RPF (Rehabilitation Project Force — Hubbard's double-speak for gulag) is where staff can go to be "redeemed" and it is all "voluntary." That is a lie and it is proven in their own literature.
|First, the RPF and its rules were Hubbard's
creation. There is an "RPF Series" that lays down
those rules. He created it on the ship
Those assigned to the RPF are from the
and despite the "spin" that is put on it, people were
and are sent there for the most ridiculous reasons. Many
times, they were sent by whim or in moments of rage from
Hubbard or a senior. It was a way to punish and to
reprogram ("rehabilitate") the person by putting them in
terrible conditions, with long work hours (6 am to 6
pm), short meal breaks (30 minutes with Hubbard's
instructions that they are to be leftovers from the crew
meals), little sleep, no family or social connections
and the rest of one's time (5 hrs per night) being spent
studying Hubbard or undergoing interrogations where one
confesses one's real or imagined crimes. These "crimes"
are written down and to be used against one, as needed.
This can go on for years.
The RPF gives a chilling, real example of what Hubbard wanted to do to "delete" people from society, to "remove" them "without sorrow," that has already been posted here to alt.religion.scientology. Unable to do so to society in general, he was able to establish these programs in Scientology, first on the ship and then ashore. (Parallels can be found in the "re-education" camps run by the Chinese where one goes and works and confesses so he/she can re-enter the society.)
The RPF's RPF is literally an RPF within the RPF, a gulag within the gulag. What you are about to read as to the rules is basically the RPF's already brutal restrictions applied once AGAIN. Let me quote the definition of "RPF's RPF" from their Admin Dictionary. The definition itself is one long paragraph in the book. I will break it apart into the sections, merely for formatting purposes and ease on the eyes. [RVY's comments are highlighted in the column aside]
The definition then goes on with a bracketed remark, apparently inserted by the editor of the volume and to mean that it was not part of the FCO. It gives further insight:
In other words, punishment was increased until the person, "of their own self-determinism," gave in.
Can you say, coercion?
But this is Hubbard's idea of "self-determinism."
Welcome to double-think.
As a final note, and to show how "ethics" are applied in the RPF, the following is taken from the same Administrative Dictionary:
This is what drives the RPF, that the section leaders are threatened with suffering the same penalty of each of their section members if the MAA must step in, so you can bet it can get brutal, on people already deprived of sleep. To complain or noncomply can send one to the RPF's RPF until one "changes one's mind" and agrees to the program.
So the next time Chick Corea or John Travolta complain about the treatment of Scientologists, would someone let them show them either this post or the entry from the Administrative Dictionary and ask them to protest how Scientologists are treated INSIDE Scientology? (Don't be surprised if an Orwellian edit on this definition is done, if not done already.)
And also pass it on to those who say there is no form of "cult mind control" that goes on in Scientology. Better yet, let THEM do the RPF's RPF and keep them there until they change THEIR minds "of their own self-determinism" and let's see what they say.
