I saw some graffiti downtown today done in magic marker. It says "Scientology Kills, Kills, Kills!"
This is awful suspicious, considering that it wasn't there a few days ago, and considering that the cult seems to be focussing attention beams on me lately. It would not surprise me a bit to discover that there are some clams running around with inky fingers today.
If they try to pin it on me, let me just say here that my work against the cult is mostly digital, and does far more damage with ridicule than a message on a building ever could. I do not deface property, period!
"Car salesmen are after your money, Christians are after your soul, but the Church of Scientology wants both." -- Hartley Patterson "Every week, every month, every year, every decade and now every century, Scientology does weird and stupid things to damage its own reputation." - Steve Zadarnowski http://www.xenu.net http://www.xenutv.com (see live Scientologists in their natural state!)
Of these 5 basic principles is the creation of an "Us vs Them" dynamic.
Robert Green and Joost Elffers in their book "The 48 Laws of Power", describe this principle as follows:
"Step 5: Set Up an Us-verses_Them Dyanmic.
The group is now large and thriving, a magnet to attracting more and more particles. If you are not careful though, inertia will set in, and time and boredom will demagnetize the group. To keep your followers united, you must now do what all religions and belief systems have done, create an us-verses-them dyanamic. First make sure your followers believe they are part of an exclusive club, unified by a bond of common goals. Then to strengthen this bond, manufacture the notion of a devious enemy out to ruin you. There is a force of nonbelievers that will do anything to stop you. Any outsider who tries to reveal the charlatan nature of your belief system can now be described as a member of this devious force. If you have no enemies, invent one. Given a straw man to react against, your followers will tighten and cohere.
They have your cause to believe in and infidels to destroy."
