The "About the Author" section in this 1967 printing of Scientology Fundamentals of Thought, an edition that was widely available when I joined the cult in 1975, contains a number of claims by L. Ron Hubbard about himself that were changed in subsequent printings of the book.
Hubbard repeatedly claimed to be a medical doctor and nuclear physicist to fraudulently confer upon himself an authority to control people and situations. In fact, he had no such legitimate authority, and was actually a sociopath, the last person on earth who should be in control.
A Scientologist who fails to use Scientology technology and its administrative and justice procedures on the world around him will continue to be too enturbulated to do his job. That sounds extreme to anyone. But if you look it over, you will find that the " power" of the "society" and "state" is pretended and is made from an effort to be powerful where they actually lack power. Our situation is quite the reverse. Ours is the power of truth and we are capable of power as a group, having power as individuals due to processing and power of wisdom due to superior technology. Therefore, when we grant too much beingness to their " power," we are granting validity to a falsehood and so it recoils on us. We are, in short, knocking our own heads off by failing to use our knowledge and authority when we administer or handle our fellow man or society.
