The Hammer of Thor*
It seems to be a prevailing 'think' these days to blame the tool and not the welder of tools for any damage a tool has done.
This short fall thinking, that stops before the cause of an action is recognized, is becoming more and more common and I am wondering if it is a think that is being encouraged and fostered off on people rather than one that is ingrained into the individual. Interestingly it is even prevalent in the Scientology Field. Blaming the tool, not the person using it. The "Oh, KSW is a bad bad thing, smack bottom, don't use it" type of attitude.
This 'think' is running through society and has been used as an excuse to limit the responsibility of people society.
For example, take the Gun Laws. In the UK the violent crime rate is nearly FOUR TIMES as high as ours. (According to the British Home Office compared to the FBI's Uniform crime reports.) Australia suffered a skyrocketing violent crime rate, as soon as gun control was implemented after the staged Port Arthur Massacre. Criminals in Australia know that lawful citizens do not have guns (Only Police and criminals have guns in Australia. Note: criminals do not obey laws, hullo! That's why they are called criminals. Duh!). In Canada the gun registry has been scrapped as a dismal failure. Yet Mexico, with a very stringent gun control, has an enormous amount of violence.
Yet.....Switzerland, where almost every single adult has a machine gun at home, has one of the lowest rates of violent crime. This is not rocket science. It does not take a genius to work it out. Two men with guns, take one of the guns away and you have one man with a gun and one without.
There is an old saying, (don't you just love old sayings?) 'It is a poor workman that blames his tools'.
In the Scientology field, some people blame the tech, or KSW, or the Sea Org or L. Ron Hubbard for the deteriorating condition of the church. I have even seen it stated that "L. Ron Hubbard planted the seeds for the deminse of Scientology." What twaddle! Anyone who can tell the difference between differences, similarities and identities can see the outpointiness in this. Namely failure to recognise source, (good and bad. ESPECIALLY bad).
This comes down to a lack of confront of evil. Which probably explains why it persists so much.
This lack of recognizing source applies in other areas of society also. You might recall some examples of this from your school days. In a class one person does something wrong or objectionable but is hidden. Instead of investigating to find the culprit the lazy approach is adopted instead. The whole class is assigned cause in this regard and the WHOLE Class must stay back as punishment. Outpoint = wrong source. This type of activity is applied across the society. A few people are bad terrorists so everyone must prove their ID and undergo uncomfortable 'probing' at airports, none of which locate a terrorist of course. Terrorists are not that stupid. The lazy way is to assume everyone is guilty until proven innocent through inspection and investigation rather than chase down the source of the terrorist activity.
The handling? Well it is given in the tech. Remove the suppression off a case and the individual is no longer PTS. The same applies on any dynamic, third as well as first. In other words confront the source of evil and locate it exactly and it will be as-ised. If it is not as-ised then the true source of evil has not been located and will continue to persist. This is not a problem for Einstein.
"Axiom 40. ANY PROBLEM, TO BE A PROBLEM, MUST CONTAIN A LIE. IF IT WERE TRUTH, IT WOULD UNMOCK.
An unsolvable problem would have the greatest persistence. It would also contain the greatest number of altered facts. To make a problem, one must introduce Alter- is- ness."
The tools of Scientology work. It is a 'workable' technology. In 'Safeguarding Technology' LRH said:
"Scientology is a workable system. This does not mean it is the best possible system or a perfect system. Remember and use that definition. Scientology is a workable system."
The tools of scientology, the axioms, the policies, bulletins, principles and even the instructions are tools on can use and work, like the hammer, only when properly applied.
