Wow. That seems to happen rather quickly. How long does it usually take to get through that course?

The course has gone through several modifications, courtesy of MiscavigeTech®, but it should only take a couple weekends or so to get through the course. Intro courses like this are designed by scientology to be pretty easy, and not take too long to complete.

Also, found some old threads on WWP regarding costs for the standard 2 day (weekend) Dianetics Seminar.

Very interesting and a bit scary to think someone can be convinced that anyone who opposes scientology is suppressive over a couple of weekends. It defies rational/logical thinking and yet, it happens.

I immediately thought of Paul Grosswald who found himself indoctrinated rather quickly. I was trying to find the videos of him talking with his parents but this will do:

He talks about the "suppressive person" indoctrination.

One of the policies covering this would be Cutative Prices, HCOPL 27 September, 1970, found in OEC III (Green Volumes).  Fair Use extract, here is the first 3 sentences of that HCOPL -

CUTATIVE PRICES

HCO PL of 27 Apt AD 15 "Organizational Price Engram" is fully
valid and must be followed. It explains why price cuts damage orgs.

Price cuts are forbidden under any guise.


Wow, no wonder our org is doing so poorly - the price cuts have damaged it.  And here I though it was the poison tech and the increasing public awareness of scientology.   (OoO)

Quote
It's a stripped down, baby version of the PTS/SP course for noobs.  It goes over the 12 attributes of the social / anti-social personalities, PTS, disconnection, and the raw meat is also required to do a low gradient version of O/W writeups (confess your "sins" onto paper, without using an e-meter).  This is the simple version, wrere raw meat gets indoctrinated that anyone who opposes scientology is suppressive.

If the Div 6 (noob) course supervisor can successfully get raw meat through the course, complete with convincing the noob to write down in hard copy his "sins", then they have the noob snared into scilon "us against the world" cult way of thinking.

They get a pretty good dose of scientology so early on, and the cult gets the blackmail data.   

So it's possible for someone to start talking like a scientologist pretty early on; even though they may not have decided whether to commit to it yet or not.

Thanks for explaining.

 I equate the indoctrination process to that of the "Stasi". If one would like to see what a society would be like if run by scientology, a very good film to watch would be " The lives of others". Totalitarianism and paranoia taken to its ultimate apex. Thing is, this type of governance has happened many times within the last 70 years.

Or read the essay by Ken Rose (the author of the Key to Life course): The Demons of Freedom.

Sounds like a riveting watch, ST.    :)
