|Book: Hubbard Dissemination Course Chapter 8C and Circuits|
Scientologists learn through their training in Hubbard's mental science they are the only true mental health authorities on Earth, and that progress up Scientology's "Bridge" to "Clear" is the proper and sole criterion for the granting of civil rights and even citizenship.
[Ref. Dianetics: Modern Science of Mental Health, Book Three Chapter 10]
In a lecture on his dissemination "tech," Hubbard gave Scientologists the moral justification and mandate in the course of their conversations with their humanoid prospects to invade their privacy and to elicit confessions from them. Hubbard pointed out that wogs, non-Scentologists, are being out-of-control "reactive minds" and must be brought under the control of Scientology disseminators, for the wogs' own good.
People respond to 8-C 1 . All the social machinery people have actually breaks down in the face of direct intention. But the thing that causes difficulty in moving people along this line of methodology has a great deal to do with the notion of privacy—that a reactive mind 2 has a right to "privacy." You very definitely have to be willing to invade its "privacy." When you realize that the highest point of aberration on the third dynamic 3 was the first time you decided not to invade somebody's privacy and that nearly everything you've suffered from since was a determination not to invade somebody's privacy, you will see at once where this connects on 8-Cing someone into a service zone.
If you have a hard time invading people's "privacy," you'll have a hard time 8-Cing them into a Book One co-audit 4 or any other Div 6 course,5 because you think the reactive mind has rights. No! It does not have any rights. What has rights? That machinery? Those dramatizations? Those computing circuits? Those things have rights? The next thing you know we'll have laws out saying reactive minds have a perfect right to kill everybody.
— L. Ron Hubbard

1 8-C: Scientologese for "control." Used both as a verb and noun. Comes from a Hubbard control process called Routine 8 Control.
2 reactive mind: In Hubbard's model for the human mind, the reactive mind is the collection of unwanted and painful memories that beings have accumulated for many trillions of years, the eradication of which is accomplished only with Dianetics. In Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, Hubbard compared the action of the reactive mind to that of a faulty calculator that spits out incorrect answers; thus his reference to "machinery" and "computing circuits." Scientologists learn that Hubbard's "Bridge To Total Freedom" is the only way to remove psychological aberrations and is the route from aberrated Homo Sapiens to a new race of homonid, "Homo Novis."
3 third dynamic: Scientology term for an individual's urge to survive as part of a group, such as one's job, bowling club, or political group. Scientology expects members to use Hubbard's methods to penetrate and influence all groups with whom they associate.
4 Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (DMSMH) is called Book One. A "Book One Co-audit" is Scientology's pairing up of people to run the Book One Dianetics processes on each other, and is used as a cheap introductory service.
5 Div 6 (Division 6) is the division of any Scientology organization for drawing new members into Scientology by way of introductory courses and processing. Field Staff Members are operated by org staff members in this division.
Disseminators are instructed and drilled to get their prospects confessing private concerns and difficulties in the course of seemingly casual conversation. When such confessions are obtained, disseminators parrot them back to their targets as authoritative evaluations, pronouncing that these problems are ruining their lives.
Having established psychological authority and control, disseminators direct and focus their prospects' "interest" toward the inevitable Scientology solution for their "ruins."
