If anyone is responsible for anything in this world then the RPF is

If anyone is responsible for anything in this world then the RPF is
Hubbard's creation. There, now someone has stated the simple truth.

It was written by LRH Pers Comm Ken Urquhart pursuant to Hubbard's
order, and the FO text was approved by Hubbard.

Hubbard assigned people to the RPF personally and arbitrarily, and was
the only person who could arbitrarily remove people from the RPF.

The RPF was concocted and ordered into existence by L. Ron Hubbard.

It is never questioned, until you have exercized your right to do so,
because it is such an obvious fact that questioning it would be
embarrassingly foolish.

>The Rehabilitation Project Force was created and is perpetuated by squirrel

That part you got right.

Yep, that part right too. Cowards so cowardly.

Yep, more cowardly concoctions by Hubbard & Co.

It's true these present leaders destroy the name and reputation of
Hubbard and $cn; but it's also true that Hubbard did his share to
destroy his own reputation and that of the organization he set up to
carry out his purposes.

>Of course they will not dismantle the RPF; it is their proudest creation.

They would be very wise to ban the RPF and repudiate the Hubbard
thinking that brought that stupid slave unit into existence.

Both things are true. The RPF is an abomination, and Hubbard created
it. He also used it once created for his own personal, unethical

He created it in the first place. Lots of us are cowardly liars, but
asserting that Hubbard created the RPF does not make anyone a liar, a
coward or a cowardly liar.

And now it is appropriate to ask that you consider the truth in this

Well now you've gone where hardly any sane person dares.

You're right about the present crop of cultmasters hiding behind
Hubbard and his name; but don't forget the rest of their camouflage,
the lawyers, the corporations, the trustees, the directors, the
ecclesiastics, the accountants, the shells, the shills and the
shekels. And don't forget that Hubbard hid behind his own layers of

It would be cool if you would be so kind as to post your own name so
that the notoriety can be more equitably shared.

Here I am, one of the merry minions?

>When they and the critics are on the same side in this issue, you will know

That's right. David Miscavige and I, on the same side of this issue:
Yes, L. Ron Hubbard concocted the RPF.
