Enemy Names

Paul Breckenridge Jr. from the Superior Court of the State of California gave an accurate description of the Scientology organization in the case Church of Scientology of California vs. Gerald Armstrong:
"The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and the bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder LRH."
The secret documents revealed here should prove his point...

The documents starts off by explaining that this "Defence Paper" was written after 18 years of "unprovoked attacks" on Scientology. Somehow they also felt it was needed to add a line to inform the reader that "Nothing in this paper advocates physical violence to any person". I take it that other documents do advocate physical violence. But something in this document must be frightening to them if it came out, since they threaten anybody who host it on the Net with lawsuits.

From the "ENEMY NAMES" document:

By carefully watching press to see who is called upon by the press for counter-opinions, one can work one's way easily toward the centre of a hostile network.

The press is fed anti materials. Although reporters do not disclose their sources, their stories often do.

Hubbard was schizophrenic, in the fifties and sixties he was sure CIA, the communists, psychiatric and medical assosiation had hitmen out to get him. Even the FBI, who Hubbard frequently sent letters to, ignored him because of "his possible mental instability and rambling and incoherent nature of his letters." (quoted from FBI records recently released according to the Freedom of Information Act).

In the famous RJ67 tape (September 1967) Hubbard says to his followers:

"Our enemies on this planet are less than twelve men. They are members of the Bank of England and other higher financial circles. They own and control newspaper chains, and they are, oddly enough, in all the mental health groups which have sprung up in the world. These chaps are very interesting fellows. They have fantastically corrupt backgrounds; illegitimate children; government graft; a very unsavory lot. And they apparently, sometime in the rather distant past, had determined on a course of action. Being in control of most of the gold supplies of the planet, they entered upon a program of bringing every government to bankruptcy and under their thumb, so that no government would be able to act politically without their permission."
The "church" is still very eager to prove there is a conspiracy somewhere against them. Hubbard thought the enemies were aliens from outer space disguised as psychiatrists and the like. No wonder the "Church" of Scientology don't want us to show you all the documents! Another secret policy letter describing the enemies of Scientology is "TARGETS, DEFENSE" from 1969.

From the "ENEMY NAMES" document:

To get a hostile opinion, the reporter looks in the files to see who is sending in hostile data and calls the person for comment. This is a training pattern developed from current "teachings" that all stories must have conflicts,

Hubbard loved making simplified analyses on why "enemies" acted like they did. Since his analyses usually were simply wrong, his methods to "handle" them often end up in Scientologists making major foot bullets. Their policy for handling enemies is called Dead Agenting and is worth a closer look.

From the "ENEMY NAMES" document:

It is wise to challenge such adverse commentators as routine procedures. A call by a local "housewives committee", etc. as to why they are hostile to human rights or in favor of psychiatric butchery and getting them in the press with it and with no mention of us is good PRO.

This is how Scientology intelligence works; never defend, always attack! Yes, this "church" has its very own intelligence agency! In case of bad media coverage ("black propaganda"), Scientologists should contact the press and others pretending they are someone else to leave the impression that others than Scientology are also concerned about the attacks on Scientology. But they carefully change it to "attacks on human rights" and "in favor of psychiatric butchery" etc. In other words: Scientologists are trained, and even ordered, to lie to the you and the media!

From the "ENEMY NAMES" document:

PRO uses the hostile commentator to guide his own counter attacks.

The effect at the least is to shut the hostile people up.

(PRO means the Public Relations Officer in Scientology)

Scientology is scared stiff that criticism about them will spread. If it does they will lose more money. The "Church" of Scientology has threatened, harassed, and even framed critics to get them arrested for bomb threats, all in an attempt to silence them. Church members have also broken in to government offices to remove negative information about CoS, Hubbards wife went to prison when Operation Snow White was revealed. Hubbard himself went into hiding. And this "church" will also sue frivolously:

"The purpose of [a lawsuit] is to harass and discourage rather than to win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is not authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly."
"A Manual on the Dissemination of Material" (first published in Ability, the Magazine of DIANETICS and SCIENTOLOGY, 1955) Note: this paragraph has apparently been purged from later editions of the "Manual"
From the "ENEMY NAMES" document:
We happen to be fortunate, if you call it that, that persons hostile to Scientology usually have criminal backgrounds even when in public life. One doesn't always find these even when they exist but one at least finds connections which are useful.

This is Scientology. Anybody hostile to them is a criminal, that's why we are Fair Game. That means any Scientologist can deprive me of property, injure me by any means, or trick, sue, lie to or destroy me without any discipline of the Scientologist.

From the "ENEMY NAMES" document:

It is very sound strategy never to fight a battle on your own territory or subject or even on the territory of an ally. Always fight battles in enemy territory.

The hope is to get the focus away from CoS, and on the critic. If the critic or the journalist isn't prepared, they may sometimes succeed.
