British Parliament, 1968:
Mr. St. John-Stevas:
Since the right Hon. Gentleman has reflected on the subject and is noted for his academic brilliance, would he say in one brief, concise sentence, exactly what Scientology is?

Mr. Crossman:
Yes, I think I could: it is a fraud.


From Blacks Law Dictionary:

Fraud: An intentional perversion of the truth for the purpose of inducing another in reliance upon it to part with some valuable thing or to surrender a legal right; a false representation of a matter of fact, whether by words ot conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of that which should have been disclosed, which deceives and is intended to deceive another so that he shall act upon it to his legal inquiry; anything calculated to deceive, whether by a single act or combination, or by suppression of truth, or suggestion of what is false, whether it be by direct falsehood or innuendo, by speech or silence, word of mouth, or look or gesture; fraud comprises all acts, omissions, and concealments involving a branch of legal or equitable duty and resulting in damage to another.

In his book Complicity: Ethics and Law for a Collective Age, Christopher Kutz suggests that marginally effective participants in a collective harm are accountable for the victim's suffering, "not because of the individual differences they make, but because their intentional participation in a collective endeavour directly links them to the consequences of that endeavour."


The Fraud Charts

The entirety of the L Ron Hubbard's scam may be broken down into three major sections

The first section consists of the false claims, the artifice, the misleading allegations, and the perversions of truth used to entice the good hearted rubes into believing that Scientology's "Bridge to Total Freedom" goes anywhere else that to a condition of having no conscience..That is the "Total Freedom" gained by becoming a Scientologist. This allows a Scientologist to do things of even a criminal nature without feeling guilt or social responsibility, for breaking civil laws and moral codes.

The 2nd section is a summary of some of the techniques used to keep those who have already been tricked into believing that there is substance to Hubbard's claims, from finding out that they have been hoodwinked. Example: My own name ( and many others ) was distributed on a CD Rom to Scientology's members by Scientology management as part of a "Safe Websurfing Net Nanny" software program, which caused anything with Arnie Lerma, Arnaldo lerma, or Lerma in the text, that is, the man who is typing these words for you to read, to be caused to not appear on the Scientologists's computer screen.

The third section, consists of those things that Scientology does in order to silence, or nullify the effectiveness of, including contriving entrapment for criminal charges

anyone whose speech or conduct interferes with the continued extraction of money from rubes.

A written companion text has recently been webbed called "The Scientology Matrix" which outlines some of the challenges facing a person leaving scientology - which are all just part of the show, the way the Scientology machine tries to make sure that the enterprise continues to make money. There is also a new summary of what I have been able to determine about Scientology's gag agreements in their litigation for silence campaign.


The first image is a summary of how scientology recruits new members. In recent years scientology has placed extreme emphasis on its front groups, especially NARCONON and WISE in response to growing public awareness and name recognition of Scientology, Dianetics and L Ron Hubbard being synonymous with scam.

2 non-published charts for active law-enforcement only are being prepared which describe various incidents and cases in detail, these are not available to the public at this time so as to not compromise any investigations in progress.

These functions above combine into what could easily be characterized as extortionate conduct. as covered in the United States Federal Criminal Code.

Prior work along this vein was done by Detective Sergeant Ray Emmons {now retired Clearwater police department) Some of his work is linked below:

Quote from Psychiatrists Harry and Bono Overstreet from
The Mind Alive published in 1959
"That which promotes psychic health and the full vital aliveness of the mind deserves support. That which undermines such health -- encouraging fixation, regression, perennial immaturity, and blockages of relationship between the individual and his environment--is suspect"
