You've undoubtedly heard of the infamous Missionholders
Conference of 1982 and of the events surrounding that period of
time. Now here is the beginning of the story that you've probably
never heard before.
What are now known as missions, were originally franchises
(in the full legal sense of the word). Before they were formed,
the only way that Dianetics was being disseminated outside of
the orgs was by individuals. The franchise movement was started
as a means of keeping an eye on these individuals, getting a piece
of their action (by way of a 10% frachise fee on gross income,
later called a tithe), and expanding the influence of Dianetics
/Scientology. In exchange, the franchise holders were distributed
copies of Standard Tech/Policy as it came out which they were
pledged to adhere to.
The Franchise network grew steadily through the 70's.
It was set up under the Distribution Division (Div VI of the 7
division org board). Diana Hubbard was the head of Div VI just
under dear old Dad. Under her was Mike Davidson, Franchise
Officer WW at Saint Hill England. The franchises were
originally set up with a charter that gave them a fair amount of
independance provided they agreed to adhere to standard tech and
to submit 10% of their gross income to WW (just like the orgs).
The Franchise Office WW was located at Saint Hill in England,
but was in seperate quarters from the Guardian's Office WW (and
the rest of Saint Hill).
When the IRS turned up the heat, the franchise network got
religion in the early 70's and they became "Missions" with a new
improved Mission charter that only changed the names (from
"franchise" to "mission") in order to protect the guilty. Their
10% donations of course became "tithes" and the Franchise Office
WW became the Mission Office WW (a name change only - sound
like any other part of Scientology you've heard of?)
But all was not necessarily right with the world. There
was considerable jealousy of the missions in certain circles. By
all indications, LRH never cared much for independant success.
He needed to be able to take personal credit for everything. The
orgs wanted the missions to send them more fresh meat so they could
clean their pockets before they were dry picked by the missions.
The Guardian's office wasn't happy with anything that wasn't under
their direct control.
To make matters worse, Mike Davidson, head of MOWW was
a supporter of independance for the missions. The Guardian's
Office was told to "piss off". The Mission Office WW developed
a cultural dislike and suspicion of the GO, and the GO didn't like
being shunned by these upstarts. The orgs weren't getting their
hands on the pockets of this mission public fast enough. The
mission network was expanding rapidly in the climate of the
times. Clearly something had to give.
In 1976/77 a mission was sent from Flag to MOWW under
the direct orders of Diana Hubbard and coordinated through the
Guardian's Office (i.e. Mary Sue). The missionaires were two
missionholders loyal to Diana (J.C. Hughes and John Woodruff).
They arrived without warning at Saint Hill. Mike Davidson,
Mission Officer WW, was Comm Ev'd and declared Suppressive.
(His main crime being insubordination against the GO) J.C.
Hughes, a San Diego Missionholder, was temporarily installed as
Acting Mission Officer WW, soon replaced by Gerri Staley a
protege of J.C.'s. The new improved management was Guardian
Office friendly (by order). The missions were ordered to herd
those publics on up to the orgs. The Guardian's Office was in
control of the situation (temporarily). Management of the
missions became more tightly controlled.
Ron, Mary Sue, and Diana were undoubtedly happy to have
crushed this ruthless suppressive (Mike Davidson) who had dared to
stand in the way of the machinations of the dread state machine of
Scientology. The way was cleared for the Guardians Office WW to
directly manipulate the Missions from behind the scenes, which
they were quite happy to do.
The stage was set for further demonstrations of raw
unbridled jealousy, greed, lust for power, and ruthlessness.
Davey learned his lessons well. Look at how he applied this
standard tech and policy to the missions and orgs as he and
his CMO cronies continued LRH's applied irreligious psychosis.
Now after the application of so much standard policy/tech
to the missions (and orgs) the networks have been decimated. No
wonder they need their celebrities to spend their personal fortunes
to establish new missions. Eventually, Davey will crush them too
(missions, orgs, celebrities, and their fortunes).
