Here's a little tidbit by Hubbo (the klown) which mentions the infamous "Scieno Glare", aka "the brainwashed stare".

Note: Any typos are likely my own.

(From HCOPL of 7 February 1965, Reissued 27 August 1980, Corrected and Reissued 12 October 1985, _Keeping Scientology Working Series 1_, by L. Ron Hubbard)

When somebody enrolls, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the universe--never permit an "open-minded" approach. If they're going to quit let them quit fast. If they enrolled, they're aboard; and if they're aboard, they're here on the same terms as the rest of us--win or die in the attempt. Never let them be half-minded about being Scientologists. The finest organizations in history have been tough, dedicated organizations. Not one namby-pamby bunch of panty-waist dilettantes have ever made anything. It's a tough universe. The social veneer makes it seem mild. But only the tigers survive--and even *they* have a hard time. We'll survive because we are tough and are dedicated. When we *do* instruct somebody properly, he becomes more and more tiger. When we instruct half-mindedly and are afraid to offend, scared to enforce, we don't make students into good Scientologists and that lets everybody down. When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that wandering doubt in her eye into a fixed dedicated glare and she'll win and we'll all win. Humor her and we all die a little. The proper instruction attitude is "You're here so you're a Scientologist. Now we're going to make you an expert auditor no matter what happens. We'd rather have you dead than incapable."

Notice how Hubbard emphasizes not to permit an "open-minded" approach to Scientology in the first sentence. That causes an ALARM to go off in my mind! Here, Hubbo the kult-klown says, IMHO, "coerce the pcs to turn off all critical thinking and succumb to the cult."

He also reinforces Scientology's "game" and steps into fanaticism with his "win or die in the attempt." The entire paragraph is like an advertisement to the dangerousness of the cult of Scientology! I really wonder how many have blown the cult after joining staff. My guess (hope) is that it is a decent number.

The phatdude also uses a lot of "colorful" phrases (phrasingness?) to help get his point across. Notice "namby-pamby bunch of panty-waist dilettantes". The tiger, which seems to be an icon in the cult, is also used.

It is my guess that Mrs. Pattycake is Hubbard's "Joe Six-Pack", fresh off the street, took a personality test, got sucked in to a comm course and is on the Road to Total Freedom (from financial assets). The only "way we'll win" is if she's another Scientologist zombie seems to be the true meaning behind his words, IMHO. --
