I have used my own photo to demonstrate some one in a condition of Liability as I have never come across another photo of someone in Liability. Notice the rag round my left hand. That is also a part of the Liability condition which the quote underneath does not mention on the online free courses from Scientology.org. You may wonder why I bring this up now, it's because I care about todays children.
All these years this organization has flouted the law by the use of disturbing beliefs of it's founder, L. Ron Hubbard. Under the guidance of L. Ron Hubbard's tutelage, scientology to this day uses these barbaric methods of control on children, not that it isn't bad enough that it does the same to adults, but it meters out these punishments on children and not just in the Sea Org. These abominable practices are carried out by scientologists in their day to day life.
They blatantly advertise it on videos, without admitting to the more insidious practices that go with doing these conditions formulas and they do so with religious recognition? Religious recognition that is backed by law.How can that be?
"The Condition of LiabilityBelow Non-Existence there is the Condition of Liability. The being has ceased to be simply non-existent as a team member and has taken on the color of an enemy.
It is assigned where careless or malicious and knowing damage is caused to projects, organizations or activities. It is adjudicated that it is malicious and knowing because orders have been published against it or because it is contrary to the intentions and actions of the remainder of the team or the purpose of the project or organization.
It is a liability to have such a person unwatched as the person may do or continue to do things to stop or impede the forward progress of the project or organization and such a person cannot be trusted. No discipline or the assignment of conditions above it has been of any avail. The person has just kept on messing it up.
The condition is usually assigned when several Dangers and Non-Existences have been assigned or when a long unchanged pattern of conduct has been detected.
When all others are looking for the reason mail is getting lost, such a being would keep on losing the mail covertly.
The condition is assigned for the benefit of others so they won’t get tripped up trusting the person in any way.
The formula of Liability is:
1. Decide who are one’s friends.
2. Deliver an effective blow to the enemies of the group one has been pretending to be part of despite personal danger.
3. Make up the damage one has done by personal contribution far beyond the ordinary demands of a group member.
4. Apply for reentry to the group by asking the permission of each member of it to rejoin and rejoining only by majority permission. And if refused, repeating (2) and (3) and (4) until one is allowed to be a group member again."
Here is a quote from Margery Wakefield's book...Understanding Scientology ...
"Similar to security checks is another assignment frequently meted out by the Ethics Officer, and that is the assignment to write up one's "OWs" (overts and withholds), which in Scientology means all the things one has ever done wrong (overts), and especially those which someone else almost found out about (withholds).
This will commonly be assigned to a person who is in the process of "working out of a condition of Enemy."
The Ethics Officer is usually not satisfied until many pages of "OWs" have been produced by the properly repentant member. At one point in Scientology it was the practice to lock the member in a closet for two or more days while he wrote up his sins.
If a person in Scientology should become querulous, especially should he find fault with something written by Hubbard, or should he doubt some point of dogma, that person will be quickly isolated from the other students and dispatched to Ethics until his overts can be discovered and dealt with.
Anything authored by Hubbard ("Source") is assumed to be valid and true; therefore, anyone who has a disagreement with anything written by Hubbard must have personal overts which are causing him to find fault.
It is the job of the Ethics department of Scientology to assign the person the appropriate lower condition and have him write up his OWs until he has come to see the light and can be returned a more obedient and humble member of the group.
In the case of serious deviation from the norms of the group, there are more severe penalties which can be applied to provide the motivation for a member to more obediently conform. Some of these penalties have in the past included:
- a dirty grey rag tied to the left arm to indicate a condition of liability
- confinement to the premises of the organization
- suspension of pay and dismissal from post
- a black mark on the left cheek to indicate a condition of treason
- the person cannot be communicated with by anyone in the organization
- deprivation of sleep for up to 72 hours
- assignment of manual labor for up to 72 hours
At one time Hubbard ordered the ultimate punishment for thirteen people who had defected as "enemies" from the organization. Hubbard ordered that "auditing process R2-45" be used on these people if they were seen by any Scientologist.
"R2-45" is a term understood by every Scientologist. When he first demonstrated it, it is fabled that Hubbard shot a Colt 45 revolver through the floor of the stage he was lecturing from. Routine #2-45 refers to the act of shooting someone in the head with a Colt 45 and is the execution procedure in Scientology. In defending themselves, Scientologists will say to outsiders that Hubbard meant this as a joke; however, in a document called Racket Exposed, Hubbard did in fact order thirteen people to be shot on sight."
