THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM.
You can write that down in your book in great big letters.
The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them.

So what about the ARC triangle. Do we have to reconsider Hubbard’s words, which were something like “The highest control you can achieve is agreement”. Did he mean something entirely different? You can make people agree with anything by brute force. Sure, but Hubbard was a notorious liar. He hardly forced anybody himself. He used third parties to force others (as it is still in use these days).
It is pretty clear that Hubbard did in fact control people by the “only way” he was convinced of: LIE TO THEM!
Besides lying, how good was Hubbard’s natural control? The book “Bare-Faced Messiah” claims that Hubbard was terrible at managing organisations and dealing with money efficiently. Not to mention that his teeth smelled rotten. But when Hubbard started telling his stories, he was awakening interested in his thoughts. He could invent convincing stories instantly. And most of them were not only amused, they also believed in his mushy brain stories. Hubbard really used lies to control people. He was very good at it, I would even say professional. Hubbard was on such a high plateau that he could tell dogmas about low-toned (=low on the tonescale) people who stink out of their mouth without the need to fear any consequences for himself.
