“I consider all auditors my friends. I consider them that even when
they squirrel. I believe they have a right to express themselves and
their own opinions. I would not for a moment hamper their right to
think. I think of auditors and Scientologists as the Free People.”

“I don’t expect auditors or Scientologists to instantly agree with or
seize upon whatever I say. I would be offended if they did and would
feel they weren’t a Free People. Since they are intelligent I expect
them to think over what’s said, try it, and if it’s good for them, use
it. That old auditors sooner or later come back to and use what I have
discovered isn’t any testimony to our relationship at all, it’s only a
testimony to my being right because I meant to be right in the first
place.”

“I sorrow when I see somebody accomplishing less than he should
because he thinks I wouldn’t approve of it. In organizations and out I
count upon initiative and good judgment.

L. Ron Hubbard, PAB 79, 10 April 1956, THE OPEN CHANNEL

This is a fascinating LRH quote from 1959. He decries
the subservience of knowledge to special interests,
and all the “now-I’m- supposed -toos” Guess he’d be
a freezoner were he here. 🙂

“PRINCIPLES OF SCIENTOLOGY”

“The fate of any piece of knowledge man has ever been
able to learn about himself, his society or this
universe has [been to] sooner or later become
subservient to some special interest with a curve on
it to make more slaves.
And this is one time when as long as I’ve got words in
my mouth and breath in my thetan – this is one time
that curve isn’t going to happen. And that’s all I
want your help in. We want to make sure that what we
know never comes to serve some special interest for
the subjugation of man.”

“All Dianetics and Scientology attempts to do is to
undo the magic spell which has made people less than
they want to be. And to do that it requires that some
truth be known. And that the central and principal
truths of man be know, merely as truths – not as
pitches and curves to serve some different reason or
purpose. And that information is its own best
protector.
If it is itself, if it is what is known, if it is what
has been learned, then it undoes its own spells. And
the only possible excuse we have for training anybody,
for processing anybody is that Dianetics and
Scientology will undo Dianetics and Scientology. And
that’s the first time known in the history of man that
a subject, if it ever curved down, could also go up –
that a subject undid itself. And that would be true
knowledge.”

“We must never let what we know get into a state
whereby it itself is a tremendous numbers of
‘now-I’m-supposed-tos.'”
