A lot of the repeated comments on this blog trying to justify DM’s atrocities with LRH policies from the sixties would be purely academic if they weren’t so accusative and invalidative.
I recently audited a person on the Happiness Rundown, one of the last undisputably LRH directed and approved Rundowns of his lifetime. It was his last major signature technical contribution before the DM purges began and all communications to and from LRH became filtered through DM’s murky lens.
The Rundown is designed to assist a person to comfortably and naturally apply what LRH considered humankind’s most valuable virtues. They are enumerated in Precept Twenty of The Way to Happiness. LRH called them the “positive version of the Golden Rule.”
The end product of the Happiness Rundown is to garner a person’s understanding that he or she should treat others with:
While I watched another person come to an understanding of how the practice of those virtues would make that person happy and those in his vicinity happy and would make the world a better place in which to live, it occured to me that virtually all abusive practices of the church and its members that we have discussed on this board are in direct opposition to a number of these virtues.
I suggest that if those practicing Scientology attempted to exemplify these virtues, heretofore unseen gains from the subject would be routinely attainable, and lastingly maintainable. I also believe that if independent Scientologists gave importance to these virtues in their lives, the subject would never again fall into the hands of a monopoly that would use it in a reverse manner to subjugate and denigrate others.
