You CAN have the ability to talk to anyone on anything. You just can't do it in Scientology.

And they also hate full disclosure. That is a primary reason for their
fear of this agreement being out.

The cult like to promote how one can learn to "communiate" with LRH tech.
In their "Grade Zero," basiclly the "first step" on "The Bridge to Total
Freedom" (sic) one supposedly gets the ability "to communicate with anyone
on any subject."

It is one of the greatest bait-and-swtiches you will find. Try talking
about Scientology itself! Try talking about your session! Try talking
about OT3, unless you're Warren McShane, of course. Try talking about your
job, your seniors, or even LRH. Try carrying on a philosophical discussion
about the reactive mind. Try having the idea that there might be some
"improvements" to be made in the tech or the organization.

One of the first and most startling discoveries I made after fleeing the
cult after 21 years was that the only way I could have the ability of
Grade Zero was to LEAVE the cult! When I left, suddenly I could talk to
anyone on any subject!

And watch what happens on ARS when you do!

If the "ability to communicate" is the most basic ability "taught" by the
cult, it is the most basic lie and bait-and-switch. Their own behavior
shows it, right here on ARS. They do not want people to talk except on
approved topics.

Do you know this is how the citizens of the former Soviet Union used to
think and behave? They said Americans didn't have freedom of speech but
THEY had it. Huh? Of course, now, those same people have come to their
senses and realized that is called a "party line," not to mention

We all hope that just as the Berlin Wall came down and those peoples were
given a chance to join the Free World that Scientologists will get the
same chance.

You CAN have the ability to talk to anyone on anything. You just can't do
it in Scientology.
