Treat a bust or a personal office of mine with disrespect and the public falls away. Apologize for my policies and the public stays off in droves. There’s nothing of superstition about this. The public wants Scientology, Ron’s brand and they don’t buy other brands. In thirteen years, every squirrel or disaffected or critical office has miserably failed.
“The ‘we agree in most things with Ron but——-‘ sees the coattails of the public, not their faces. Only recently a large office nearly crashed on this one alone. I repeat that this is no self-interested observation. It is just fact. ‘This office doesn’t fully agree with Ron’ is a sure trademark of failure. I can name nearly a hundred (independent, nearly all of them) failed centers who for all their work and often creditable actions, new furniture and exteriors, failed and failed hard on just that point.”
– L. Ron Hubbard

Rathbun uses these type of phrases amongst his squirrel followers. He believes that he knows better than LRH, combining ideas from various different schools of thought and claiming that this is what LRH really meant.
Meanwhile Rathbun consorts himself with the likes of SPs such as Ursula Caberta.
