re The Process of Brainwashing, Psychological Coercion, and Thought Reform, by Margaret Thaler Singer, Cults in Our Midst, Chapter 3
1) Keep the person unaware of what is going on and the changes taking place.
2) Control the person's time and, if possible, physical environment.
3) Create a sense of powerlessness, covert fear, and depenency.
4) Suppress much of the person's old behaviour and attitudes.
5) Instill new behavior and attitudes.
6) Put forth a closed system of logic; allow no real input or criticism"
*note column 5 thought reform in link
"The tactics of a thought-reform program are organized to:
Destabilize a person's sense of self,
Get the person to drastically reinterpret his or her life's history and radically alter his or her worldview and accept a new version of reality and causality,
Develop in the person a dependence on the organization, and thereby turn the person into a deployable agent of the organization"
Have you? There's so many bitches, I lose track.
is that why you don't return my calls?
The Covert Strategies of the False Revival
"1.Environment Control: such as: daily meetings; no time for family life; limitation of contact with those outside the group; command not to read contrary literature or speak to dissenters."
The Culture of Cults
The intended purpose of this analysis, written by a former cult member, is to explain the nature of a cult, to warn others of the dangers of involvement with a cult group, and to support calls for society to be more proactive in protecting the rights of individuals targeted by cults.
Cults use so-called brainwashing or mind control techniques to indoctrinate their members. These are not magic techniques, they are ordinary techniques of marketing and persuasion, but applied more intensively within the peculiar context of a cult environment.
Essentially, a cult promotes its cultish belief system, and then believers control their own minds, as they attempt to train their minds and reform their personalities, in accordance with the tenets of their new belief system.
Brainwashing or mind control does not directly overcome free will. After brainwashing, free will itself remains intact, but its basis has changed.
The basis of a person's free will is their belief system and worldview. People make their choices and decisions, based on their beliefs, values, and attitudes. If a cult can influence and change a person's beliefs, then it can influence and change a person's will, and the choices they make. Effectively, a cult controls its followers indirectly, through the belief system which it promotes.
The person who started this thread may have a financial gain in mind – in theory, it is possible to join Sea Org and later sue them for Dianetics auditing which causes hallucinations (see the thread that I started, The Dianetics Fiasco). From practical standpoint, this is a very risky plan that puts his mental health at risk. On the other hand, he may have been already screwed, so he has nothing to lose.
How Mind Manipulation is used for Influence and Control
"The leaders have three objective in mind: 1) recruit converts, 2) control lives, and 3) make money.
Factors to indoctrinate a person:
Hunger (or fasting)
Threats which the person doesn't realize or perceive
Lack of privacy (physical and mental)"
what are you talking about?
Jim Carey discusses Scientology
This is very instructive and pertinent.
re John Duignan
"Many former Scientologists cite their first delinquent internet search as a jarring experience. Duignan began reading “earth-shattering” accounts of former members who had reached the top only to grow disillusioned, finding troubling discrepancies between Hubbard’s church biography and his medical and military records."
quote from John Duignan is in above article, but he is also the author of The Complex: An Insider Exposes the Covert World of the Church of Scientology, 2008
