In HCO P/L 30 September 1973 Issue II Data Series 30, Situation Finding, LRH states:

One often wonders why people are so 'reasonable' about intolerable and illogical situations.  The answer is very simple: they cannot recognize outpoints when they see them and so try to make everything seem logical.  The ability to actually see an outpoint for what it is, in itself is an ability to attain some peace of mind. …The human reaction is to react to an outpoint. And then get 'reasonable' and adopt some explanation for it, usually untrue.

In HCO PL 18 March 1977RA Data Series 43RA, Evaluation and Programs, LRH States:

A lot of people are on a stuck flow of being sensible and sane — and that winds up in stupidity.   So they get reasonable.  Their confront of evil isn't up to it — basically, their confront of outpoints." "It is horrifying to behold how easily people buy dub-in.  This is because an illogical sequence is uncomfortable.  To relieve the discomfort they distort their own observation by not-ising the outpoint and concluding something else.

In HCO PL 16 April 1965, Issue I KSW Series 22, The "Hidden Data Line", LRH states:

Some students have believed there was a "hidden data line" of tech in Scientology, a line on which Scientology tech was given out by me but not made known to students. ... There is no such line. The whole of technology is released in HCO Bulletins and HCO Policy Letters and tapes I do and release.  I don't tell people anything in some private way, not even Instructors. '...If it isn't written, it isn't true...' Somebody says 'Ron said to — ' and on a veteran staff you hear the rejoinder 'Let's see it...' So we have learned the hard way —  'If it isn't written, it wasn't said.'

Thanks for these jewels. LRH gives us the why about how Miscavige got away with what he has (so far) gotten away with. It inspires me to rededicate my efforts to bringing other Scientologists up to a point of confronting what has been occurring in the COS.
