Guardian Office (GO) training pack, three volumes

One primary source of Hubbard's media policy is a set of three volumes from the United States Guardian Office. This organization was not part of the United States government, but was set up by Hubbard. The three volumes are valuable in that they put a set of diverse policies into valid context. That is the context in which the policies are expected to be applied.

This is a special web version which is slightly edited so that

The volumes are labeled "Confidential, Pack 1 of 3, (2 of 3, 3 of 3)" and titled Information Full Hat. There is a large emblem, the text of which states "United States Guardian Office." The emblem's graphics contain what appears to be a symbol associated with Scientology, the letter "S" superimposed over two vertically offset triangles, set in a large shield or badge, guarded by two outward facing creatures resembling lions with talons in place of feet and holding, in the manner of halyards, Scientology crosses mounted on long handles.

1. Guardian Order 1314 of 9 September 1974, GO Basic Data Checksheet

Inside of the front cover is a blank "checksheet." This one is Guardian Order 1314 of 9 September 1974, with distribution given as "Info Bureau Only." It is labeled "Confidential, Intelligence Course." It contains a list of the contents of the volume with a horizontal line beside each item. The line is for the initials of the person doing the course for which these volumes are a text. Initials on photocopies would signify that the trainee has been checked out on the material (thus the word "checksheet"), and has therefore understood the material and can apply it. Each volume is split into sections, the sections into parts, with policies falling under parts.

The excerpts were selected for their relevance to dealing with public relations and the media, and include coined words to demonstrate how the jargon is used. The items are presented in the sequence in which they appear in the course. Sections, parts and policies are labeled as they appear on the "checksheet." For instance, the following designates the document listed as item 3 under "Part A: The Information Bureau," under "Section 1: General Information" in volume 1 of the set:

Volume 1 of 3; Section 1, General Information; Part A, The Information Bureau, item 3

The Guardian ...

There are various relationships in which a Guardian Office character may find itself. One of the settings involves


In the following Hubbard (LRH) defined this setting in the manner of a military commander. Hubbard used the word "hat" in the sense of "role."

This action is the "LRH Heavy Hussars Hat". This function is to move in heavily where there is a threat of importance to an org[anization] or Scientology after the usual lines and posts have goofed.

The function of the "LRH Heavy Hussars" would be to remove the threat. ...

As the following states, the actions of the "LRH Heavy Hussars" are to be published so that records of past actions may be referred to.

All Danger Conditions regardless of when and how assigned are traced as to what changed before they occurred and a full record of all findings is kept and published.

The purpose of recording what happened before a danger condition is to determine a cause-effect relationship. The three Guardian Office volumes being studied are examples of this type of publication.

Another relationship in which a character may find itself involves


The primary function is to be informed of and to trace every affluence awarded to find out what happened before it occurred and to publish findings.

The idea of recording what happened before an affluence is to determine a cause-effect relationship.

Besides studying existing relationships, Hubbard also looked to the future in establishing the Guardian office by including as one of its functions


This included planning for the customers publications and for conventions, called congresses.

This activity draws up motifs for magazine for a year in advance, draws up Congress names.

The activity tells the org what to promote, what to stress and co-ordinates promotion.

Hubbard recognized the importance of the data that was to flow through the mass media and established in the Guardian Office an


Hubbard's planning encompassed not only the local scene, but coordination of broad geographical areas.

Both planetary and organization information is handled by this activity.

Once the information is gathered, it was to be put to a use, described as "intelligence."

Intelligence is defined as information leading to predictions of occurrences and useful in forecasting events and so assisting planning and in handling matters arising from events.

It can be seen from the following that the value of outside media is recognized.

The Planetary Information Unit works with newspapers, economic newsletters, bulletins of information services, etc, and keeps a file of clippings under headings of interest to Scientology. By such studies one can predict which way cats are going to jump and organize to meet situations which may threaten Scientology from possible enemies or to take advantage of situations which might benefit Scientology.

"Entheta" is a coined word used to describe information that somehow nullifies or displaces Scientology's truth. In the following Hubbard makes a statement that relates entheta to incompetence. Hubbard indicates there is a cause-effect relationship between the competition's commodity, "entheta," and his customer's commodity, "truth." The existence of "entheta" prior to incompetence is presented to be evidence of this relationship.

It is true that entheta in an area is proportional to org incompetence in that area and real trouble in areas has always been preceded by at least two years of heavy entheta in public letters from that area.

The relationship is stated to be proportional and implied to be direct, namely that if "entheta" did not exist, neither would incompetence. It is posed as a statement of truth to which the reader is expected to agree, thus creating a reality intended to be beneficial for the customer.

Hubbard recognized that authority alone was not enough to gain agreement and included a section on


To the customer, certificates and awards have value both in achievement and in amount of time and money spent to attain the same.

The Guardian may cancel or suspend or award certificates and awards.

HCO Policy Letter of 20 February 1972
Intelligence and Security

This policy sets forth a requirement for obscuration as follows:

Any instance in which "intelligence" must be referred to broadly or on a remimeo or all staff issue, as in org board posting or staff lists, the word 'information' is to be substituted. Hence D/G for Intelligence and Port Intelligence Office become D/G for Information and Port Information Officer respectively.

Similarly the word "Inquiry" is substituted for "Investigation". Hence Inquiry Officer or Inquiry section.

The purpose of obscuration is to protect information as a commodity from compromise. The signing sequence of this instruction indicates Hubbard's chain of command. Budlong reported to Kember, who reported to Mary Sue Hubbard, who reported to L. Ron Hubbard.

MSH write-up: duties of intelligence chief
Intelligence Chief

Agents of the competition are sometimes referred to as traitors or "suppressives" as listed in the following purpose of an "intelligence chief":

3. To ensure data obtained from investigations conducted is used to deter utterly the traitor or the Suppressive from continuing his destructive actions.

The following statement signifies that records should be promptly filed "in present time," meaning now:

4. To ensure that the Intelligence CIC Board (Combat Information Center) is maintained in present time.

The importance of filing is given.

5. To ensure all Intelligence cross-filing is done correctly so that proper appreciation (evaluation which leads to the spotting of Trouble Sources) can be done.

Agents of the enemy are categorized in various ways.

7. To ensure that Intelligence files are divided into two basic functions: the files having to do with Traitors (Org members or former Scientologists) and exterior Suppressives (members of governments, groups, or individuals out in society who are attacking or possibly will attack Scientology).

The importance of the popular media is not underestimated.

8. To ensure that clipping files are kept under headings of interest to Scientology so that studies of same can predict future actions and so Intelligence investigations can be done to meet such situations or trouble or the data can be used to the benefit of Scientology. Example: medical, psychology, psychiatry, etc.

This is to be a standard policy.

12. To ensure that Intelligence Officers are appointed in all Orgs.

There is a hierarchy, each level of which is assigned to monitor the next lower level.

14. To ensure all Intelligence Officers gives summaries on all investigations being conducted and to see that such summaries report facts and facts only. No generalities, evaluations, suppositions or conclusions are wanted. Only specifics and facts are wanted.

Certain agents of the enemy are pre-defined.

18. To be ever vigilant to the constant possibility of attacks from governmental areas, in particular attacks from medical, psychological and psychiatric agencies within governments; from tax agencies within governments; and from governmental Immigration Agencies.

In the event that not everything has been covered, there is a catch-all statement.

22. To WIN in all Intelligence activities.

The "LRH" above signifies that this Guardian Order is from L. Ron Hubbard. Note that the following denotes a purpose, while the previous Guardian Order denoted a function.

The new purpose is:


This no more than the truth.

The truth in this sense denotes Hubbard's agreed-upon concept of reality.

Hubbard also recognized the value of repeatedly questioning opponents as part of a public relations (PR) strategy. The second part of the strategy is to have the public eventually take up the repetitive questioning process.

PR actions are easily grooved over in this direction.

For instance, the repeating question of why an indispensable public activity is being hit holds those who hit it in question.

We have to move in the direction of repeating something so often it is repeated. This new purpose does that.

Hubbard was very versatile in adapting anything his customer did into something the public could not do without.

In other words, we can groove anything we are already doing into this channel. ...

The media take priority in targets, second only to whoever is labeled "the enemy." This list also gives the sequence of other important social factors in Hubbard's policies, such as politics, finance, allies and society in general and in regard to public opinion.

The vital targets on which we must invest most of our time are:

T1. Depopularizing the enemy to a point of total obliteration.

T2. Taking over the control or allegiance of the heads or proprietors of all news media.

T3. Taking over the control or allegiance of key political figures.

T4. Taking over the control or allegiance of those who monitor international finance and shifting them to a less precarious finance standard.

T5. Generally revitalizing the societies in which we are operating.

T6. Winning overwhelming public support.

T7. Use all other similar groups as allies.

Targets Defense

The above is the identification of the policy from which the list of targets are taken. The originating office is the Hubbard Communication Office; it is a policy letter (PL) issued on the date given, entitled "Targets Defense."

In the following the "war" is set in the field of mental healing. The second and third sentences set the thresholds of direct attack. That is to begin when sympathy has been obtained from the authorities in making arrests and taking prisoners, and will end once the enemy installations have been appropriated.

Our war has been forced to become to take over absolutely the field of mental healing on this planet in all forms.

Our direct assault will come when they start to arrest his principals and troops for crimes (already begun).

Our total victory will come when we run his organizations, perform his functions and obtain his financing and appropriations.

GO 1514 LRH 26 Jan 75

The purpose of having data, as defined below, is to have the ability to differentiate friends from enemies. This is a very small excerpt from the Hubbard Communications Office Manual of Justice.


Intelligence is therefore that activity which collects data and keeps it adding up so that we know our foes from ours [sic] friends and so that we can act to separate out the sources of trouble in any given situation.

HCO Manual of Justice
16 Apr 59

Here is an excerpt from the Public Investigation Section. The "ethics section" referred to is what for Hubbard's customers is an Internal Investigation Section.

This section may never be used on ethics section matters but may work with ethics when an ex-Scientologist is involved.

This section has nothing to do with dispersed investigations of isolated cases. It may only work on matters relating to groups and individuals who are parts of these groups...

Following is the overall picture of how media policy fits in with attacks.

1. Note what public or private group is attacking Scientology.

2. Get a project warrant from the Advisory Council Area or WW to investigate it.

3. Collect as many case histories as possible on the individuals of that group, specializing on those that can be led to criminal prosecution by state or world agencies.

4. See that enough of the data is made available to the state or world agencies to obtain convictions.

5. See that excellent press coverage is given the disclosures over as long a period of time as possible.

6. See that HCO and Scientology are given full credit for protecting human rights and liberty.

7. The idea is that the press feeds on these (murder, assault, destruction, violence, sex, dishonesty) factors and we feed them someone else's. It will be found that our own Scientology groups contain so few of these they have to be invented about us. We need never invent them in the attacking group. The will be found to be there.

Public Inv. Sectn
17 Feb 66

Following is a restatement of the above from a broader point of view

This is the correct procedure:

1. Spot who is attacking us.

2. Start investigating them promptly for felonies or worse using our own professionals, not outside agencies.

3. Double curve our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them.

4. Start feeding lurid, blood, sex, crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press.

Don't ever tamely submit to an investigation of us. Make it rough on the attackers all the way.

The way we will eventually stop all attacks from there on out is by processing the society as follows:

1. Locate the source of the attack on us.

2. Investigate it.

3. Expose it with lurid publicity.

We are a practitioner to the society. It has rotten spots in it. Those show up in attacks on us. We investigate and expose - the attack ceases.

Attacks on Scientology
HCOPL 25 Feb 66

An HCOPL is a Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter.

The following shows that Hubbard advocated an active interest in the popular media. The "way cats are going to jump" is a figure of speech to signify events that are difficult to predict

The Planetary Intelligence Unit works with newspapers, economic newsletters, bulletins of intelligence services, etc., and keeps a file of clippings under headings of interest to Scientology. By such studies one can predict which way cats are going to jump and organize to meet situations which may threaten Scientology from possible enemies or to take advantage of situations which might benefit Scientology.

Hubbard's Standing Order #1 was that anyone could write to him at any time about anything. The letters he received then are referred to as SO #1 letters.

The Org Intelligence Unit receives copies of all SO #1 letters watching for upsets or trends in specific areas in order to correct those in control of the area and regularly reviews the number of Dead Files per area to see if some area of Scientology has more dead filed than others.

"Dead Files" are those of people who are not actively being corresponded with. Only active files could produce an income.

"Entheta" in the following refers to communication from the "enemy."

It is true that entheta in an area is proportional to org incompetence in that area and real trouble in areas has always been preceded by at least two years of heavy entheta in public letters from that area.

HCOPL 1 March 65
The Guardian

Hubbard expected his intelligence officers to act solely as eyes and ears, not as decision makers

An Intelligence Officer collects data, files by name and area, writes summaries and forwards the data to the correct terminal. This person should never at any time consider themselves capable of giving an estimate of the situation. This is done by the head of the division.

Hubbard delineated a concept, such as intelligence, as follows:

The standard actions of intelligence are:

1. Predict the trouble before it occurs by filing, cross indexing, investigation of areas, statistics and other means.

2. Investigate for crimes, the individual's [sic] who are creating trouble.

3. Prosecute.

This is standard 1,2,3 action and should not be deviated from. The maxim is "when under attack ... attack". The point is ... even if you don't have enough data to win the case ... still attack ... loudly. Reason is, it is only those people that have crimes that will attack us, and they will soon back off for fear of being found out when attacked back.

HCOPL 25 Apr 68
Intell Actions

Following is further clarification of the value Hubbard put on traditional media. studying clippings you can find out who has given them hostile data earlier or to whom they are referred for hostile data.

By taking these hostile names, one can then do a rundown on the person or his connections or both.

As there are actually very few of these names they thereby (cross filing) lead one to common denominators and one can locate attack sources ...

Intelligence data when gained, can be fed back to PRO for more spectacular confrontations ...

PRO signifies Public Relations Officer. More information on what Hubbard expected a PRO to do is given in a different source.

This activity (investigate, press counter-attack such speakers) must not be neglected ...

HCOPL 16 Feb 69
Enemy Names

Tactics and strategy may be thought of as two aspects of technology as follows:

If you uniformly apply the tactics and strategy of battle to the rows we get into, press or legal or public confrontations, you will win ...

The following puts the field of thought, as used by Hubbard, into context..

One parallels in the field of thought what is used and done in the field of battle in other ages.

Hubbard emphasized the concept of "all-or-nothing" in the following, in which the word "reasonable" refers to a condition to be avoided.

... it is not safe to hope for any half way win. We must ourselves fight on a basis of total attrition of the enemy. So never get reasonable about him. Just go all the way in and obliterate him.

Disagreement in one's own area is a thing to be avoided.

It is bad warfare to fight battles on your own terrain, in your own subject areas. It is not good to fight in the territory of allies. Fight battles wherever possible only on enemy terrain, in and about his subject and his people, not ours. You can gauge your relative success by this. When all battles are fought on his terrain you are winning.

Following is a rationalization for those mindful of budgets.

A good general expends the maximum of enemy troops and the minimum of his own. He makes the war costly to the enemy, not to himself.

Press, public opinion and governments are all listed as prospective settings for the same actions:

One cuts off enemy communications, funds, connections. He deprives the enemy of political advantages, connections and power. He takes over enemy territory. He raids and harasses. All on a thought plain - press, public opinion, governments, etc.

Intelligence identifies targets and finds out enemy plans and purposes, enemy connections and dispositions, etc. It is fatal to attack a wrong enemy. But is good tactics to make the enemy attack wrong targets or persons himself.

Making "the enemy attack wrong targets" was a good tactic for public relations purposes. Hubbard wrote that his customer should be resourceful and clever in the rules of war, but still maintain a saintly image.

We will make it all the way providing we look on this in terms of active battle and not as "if we are saintly good we will win". The people who win wars have a saintly image but they win the war by clever and forceful use of the rules of tactics, strategy and battle.

Wars are composed of many battles.

Never treat a war like a skirmish. Treat all skirmishes like wars.

HCOPL 16 Feb 69
Battle Tactics

Hubbard considered the Public Relations Officer (PRO) to be an arm of intelligence.

... look for the very expert PRO response, the non-sequiter [sic] curve. These are the key figures who get their orders what to say, what to push.

These men are actually top PRO-intelligence operatives...

Hubbard gave the reason people could serve the enemy in such a manner.

Many such spokesmen are under direct blackmail so the trick is to find what blackmail the enemy has on them...

The following balances the above statement that enemy public relations are key figures.

These people are nobody in themselves. But they lead back to key organizations and these lead back to key figures highly placed. When you have these you are in business.

HCOPL 16 Feb 69
Enemy PROs

Undercurrents of Hubbard's media policy follow.

Essentially a covert operation is intended to embarrass, discredit or overthrown or remove an actual or possible opponent.

It is a small war carried on without its true source being disclosed.

Generally the operation is preceded by data collection to establish the target validity and to plan the operation.

It follows all the rules of war but uses propaganda, psychological effect, surprise, shock, etc., to achieve its ends.

It is normal to establish the objective of the covert operation very clearly, whether large or small, long term or short term.

To fight a covert operation or to do one needs channels, contacts, direct planned campaigns with known objectives. One can also fight a covert operation by exposure of it and its principals for which one needs documents.

Covert operations are weak in that they fade out on exposure. Thus a covert operation has to lead to an overt operation to succeed.

Exposure authenticated by documents, can halt this process. The demonstration of falsity of utterance can discredit the agents planting data.

Whether overtly or covertly obtained data is:
(a) Collected
(b) Digested
(c) Used
Use is planning or exposure or for finding where to get more data.

Our tactics of offense and defense are based on data.

We need data to predict his offensives and counter them and data to use on our attacks on him.

We remove his agents and vanquish his troops and we directly attack his central group. That's sound tactics.

By demonstrating his falsity about us we rehab our own repute (a long road back). By showing his sources to be false we get them expended.

Getting enemy information sources "expended" is the equivalent of "neutralizing" enemy sources.

By showing him to be brutal, venal and plotting we get him discarded.

Data Collection

Data was to be collected and processed for the purpose of estimations.

The first function of Intelligence is providing planning, command and policy making with ESTIMATIONS OF THE COURSE OF FUTURE EVENTS OF IMPORTANCE TO THE GENERAL ACTIVITY.

The normal process of intelligence is to procure by numerous and varied and always changing means or to use accumulated stores of DATA on a given subject (called raw data), add to it the data of the requiring organisation, process and coordinate the whole, and Flair, and furnish a prediction which tells whether or not there is a situation, its benefit or danger, its extent and priority of attention, for the use of planning command and policy and including in its submission all data used (within the limits of propriety and security). This is called an ESTIMATE OF THE SITUATION.

"Flair" apparently is used to mean creative reason. Failing to reason out a situation would then be a failure.



The above taken literally in conjunction with earlier material that states that an intelligence officer forwards only data, never estimations, would mean that final evaluation is a function solely of the data.

What could be called SUPPORT intelligence (or attack or offensive intelligence) is the other side of the coin and also forms a vital part of intelligence activities. But here Intelligence is carrying out part of a program furnished by evaluation to command and ordered executed.

One purpose of the above paragraph, taken literally, is to communicate that "support" intelligence will be used when "attack" intelligence is meant. This fits in with the context of the next paragraph, which proceeds to discuss avoidance of violence and illegality. Hubbard also pointed out the advantage of obtaining papers legally, in that papers so obtained may be presented in a court of law against whoever the targets may be.

All defensive and support intelligence is done in a way that brings no liability to the organization. When Intelligence is clumsy and short cuts its actions by illegal means or violence in any service, it can have a Watergate. There is no need for this sort of thing actually. A "suitable guise" on the other hand is not illegal. Papers secured in a legal manner can be presented in courts and used whereas covertly obtained materials are sometimes useless because one cannot refer to them and they would serve at best only as a guide as to where to look legally for documents one CAN use, so why not have enough flair to know where to look for papers that can be legally used?

An Intelligence unit, then is the beginning and part of the end of all SITUATIONS. Normally it is divided into two parts, one which is defensive, the other which is supportive (or attack).

GO 784 8 June 73 Intell Its Role

AG stands for Assistant Guardian. Here are some plans and standard actions for the role of an Assistant Guardian that show one relationship of operations to the press.


1. An AG I fully trained on post.

2. The AG I carrying out standard actions:

a. Knowledge by broad observation and attention to tell tale small signs.
b. Predict the trouble before it occurs by filing, cross indexing, investigation of areas, stats and other means.
c. Spot an area heating up for an attack.
d. Locate the source of the attack on us.
e. Investigate for crimes the individuals who are causing trouble.
f. Handle by running operations, exposure via the press, or by prosecution.

3. The Planetary Planning Unit works out ways to prevent future attacks and how to take advantage of situations that will develop. (HCOPL 1 Mar 65, Guardian)

4. The Org Planning Unit predicts trouble by such things as too much entheta from an area, too much sex going on in an org and working closely with HCO plans how to reorganize the org in that area without destroying it. Such planning also handles a public programs for an entheta area to weaken anti-Scientology propaganda, at the same time stiffening up Ethics and quality of service in the area and investigating why Ethics and quality of service are down so that they can be remedied. (1 March 66, Guardian)

Plans are further broken down into programs of both the offensive and defensive variety..


1. Offensive programmes as issued or approved by LRH, MSH or the Guardian.

2. Defensive programmes as issued or approved by LRH, MSH or the Guardian.

Programs are broken down into projects.


As issued and necessary to carry out B1 programme targets.

B1 refers to "Branch 1" as listed in item 5 of this part, section and volume (inventory item 4). Projects are then finally broken down into orders for which compliance is reported.


As needed to achieve compliance with command intention.

The ideal scene is a statement of what is being attempted in the above plans, programs, projects and orders.

Attackers against Scientology located and removed from their positions of power so that Scientology can get on with it. And any threat of attack restrained, leaving Scientology a clear field.

Statistics are a means whereby compliance can be measured.

The statistic is a dual statistic:
a. # of Br I points. (see attached)
b. # of Br II points. (see attached)

The results of the ideal scene as stated above are referred to as valuable final products.


More amenable frames of mind on the part of all enemies.

As mentioned in the organization of the Guardian's Office, the Information Bureau contains two branches. Branch I is for information collection and operation; Branch II is for Information Investigations and Handling. Statistics are the means by which branch performance is measured. Statistics are awarded in accordance with the priorities of the branches, with more important actions receiving a greater number of points. These statistics serve to indicate exactly the role of the media in the underlying press strategy of Hubbard's system of organization.

Branch One Admin Scale (one page, circa 1976)

The overall theme is presented as a goal.

Goals: Scientology expanded unopposed by external suppressives across the planet.

In the purposes, certain public matters are presented as impediments to human liberty on which intelligence must therefore be gathered.

Purposes: To help LRH investigate those public matters and individuals which seem to impede human liberty so that such may be exposed and to furnish intelligence necessary in guiding the progress of Scientology.

The forward progress of the customer, Scientology, is linked to detecting and handling those who are alleged to suppress the customer.

To help Ron safeguard the Scientology Orgs., Scientologists and Scientology by effectively carrying out all intelligence activities which lead to the further prediction of areas of trouble and which lead to resolution of such areas before trouble occurs; and to detect and handle the suppressives, exterior to Scientology orgs and Scientologists, who uses his power and position or the power and position of authorities to attempt to stop the forward progress of Scientology and Scientologists.

As stated, the policy is placed in a "hat." A "hat" is a write-up of duties.

Policy: As laid down by LRH in the intelligence Branch One Director HAT.

The customer's expansion is made purely a function of the ability to reduce power of those who suppress the customer.

Plans: Generally to locate every source of opposition to Scientology and the control point of these sources and to reduce their power to ineffectiveness and/or take them over.

The target of intelligence gathering is listed specifically as people, referred to as WHOs.

Ideal Scene: A Branch One Director directing and co-ordinating the activities of Branch One; where investigations are being conducted into public matters and individuals which seem to impede human liberty thus enabling the prediction of attacks and detection of external suppressives who are using their power and position and/or the power or position of others to suppress Scientology; where data collected is swiftly and accurately cross-filed; and where WHOs are found and permanently handled by effective operations.

The result of these plans and policies is intended to be eradication of enemies.

Valuable Final Product: Exterior enemies and attacks located and restrained and/or removed.

HCO Information Letter of April 13, 1961
Terror Stalks

The scenario Hubbard created in the following is that there was public outcry against him before he published his book, "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health."

A piercing scream against Dianetics arose before the first book was published in 1950. Press was hot against it before the first foundation was formed.

Hubbard created connections between various events and named figures, but it is not clear whether his figures prove the connections he created.

For seven months before there was any personnel or personal troubles publicized, the bulk of articles against Dianetics had already appeared. At one time three national magazines were simultaneously on the stands screaming in lead articles about Dianetics and myself - and this was five months before any "divorce" publicity. And amongst the hundreds of reporters and commentators who screamed only one ever talked to me, and, from various evidences, none had read the book or knew anything about the subject.

Hubbard also published an article on "Dianetics" in a magazine called Astounding Science Fiction in May 1950.

Until May, 1950 I received only favorable publicity - on expeditions or comings or goings. In May 1950 there was a concerted shriek from people who (a) had not read the book and (b) who knew nothing bad about me

Hubbard named names of certain groups as enemies for this period of time. Presumably there were reasons for the groups named, for instance, John F. Kennedy was a Roman Catholic.

These howls came from both conservatives and liberal groups alike - the AMA - The Commies, the Socialists, the Roman Catholics.

Hubbard advanced his conclusions from the above as follows:

Thus we can rule the following facts out of all the protests and "bad publicity" of the past eleven years:

1. That it stems from any knowledge of the subject;
2. That it is a concerted effort by any one group; and
3. That it is based on any knowledge of myself

After his above refutation of the poor publicity he had received for the prior decade, Hubbard then proceeded on to look at the motivations of the people who he perceived as responsible for his poor publicity.

Now if we look further we also find these facts:

The conclusion of the following could be that practices had arisen in the same decade in which Hubbard had received bad publicity that he believed to be more deserving of the bad publicity than he was.

6. Many truly dangerous practices have risen up amongst man such as a new Indian version of whirling dervishism now rampant in England;

7. Brainwashing was introduced in the past eleven years by the Russians;

8. A dozen violent and harmful psychiatric treatments have been developed.

The justification for the apparent unexplained tolerance of practices so outlandish from Hubbard's viewpoint is suggested as collaboration on the part of governments.

And no sustained protest has continued to be made in the press against these. Indeed the U.S. Government adopted brainwashing calmly and the British Government and people of the U.S. have accepted new psychiatric treatments, organizations and propaganda without real protest.

Note that the facts referred to by Hubbard in the following are the statements he presented as fact earlier in this paper.

If you look this over with cold dispassion, examine it thoroughly from the light of the facts, only one explanation seems to remain.

They are terrified of our postulates!

This analysis places a fantastic dissemination weapon in our hands. The terror in the protest is obvious since it is misemotional and is not based on confronted facts.

"Misemotional," as used above, is a coined word meaning approximately "misplaced emotional." An outcome of the above is that Hubbard's customer is to interpret the reaction of a person who disagrees as a misplaced emotion. Therefore, based on the assumption that this interpretation is correct, Hubbard posed a counter-reaction.

To any attack by anyone, we can reply, "Why are you terrified of Scientology?" or "Why are you afraid of Hubbard?" or "Why are you frightened of Scientologists?"

For plainly this is the case.

Hubbard wrote there is more justification for the actions of people who disagree.

I'll admit that evil men sense the germs of their own destruction.

There may be unconscious recognition in this. ...

But, of this we are certain. We inspire terror in some men.

Hubbard presented an imaginative, unique angle in this announcement. It is told from the view of someone, possibly whose identity would have be protected for safekeeping, close to the US Navy. The person whose first name could be Ray seems, by his communication, to be reporting to Hubbard from the government on matters of interest to Hubbard's customer, Scientology.

Hubbard made his writings seem personal by relating what he was writing to world events.

It seems from here that the world went through a psychotic break in October. Along with Cuba and the near boom of the bomb, with Russia helping India against Red China, things closer to home also went spinny.

A "psychotic break" is a mental breakdown. "Spinny" means "confused" in the above text.

There were crises in the world of Scientology in the following places: South Africa, England, Australia and the U.S.

Two of these emergencies were governmental.

Hubbard resolved his customer's difficulties by pinpointing the alleged source of those difficulties. In this case one source would be irate parents and the other the FDA. A "Mark IV" is a model number of an electronic device used by the customer to measure electrical resistance in the subject's skin during interrogation. It is also referred to as a "meter" or "e-meter.".

The other governmental emergency (U.S.) was traced to the irate parents of a student who were hammering at FDA (Food, Drug Admin.) to seize all E-meters and close down all Scientology in the U.S. One wonders at their missed withholds! The matter is being fought but 35 Mark IVs are held up in Customs in the U.S. and F.D.A. orders. The F.D.A. has been trying for years to halt our meters. They have authority over all "diagnostic and therapeutic electrical machinery." They pass as wonderful all psychiatric electric shock machines even when they kill patients. One wonders at the political colour that favours machines that murder and outlaws those that disclose truth.

Of all the methods Hubbard has of detecting enemies, one of the most unique is by use of the e-meter. The e-meter has a dial on a gauge. Since electrical resistance of the skin varies, the dial moves sporadically up or down. Various type of movements are given names. The type of movement that supposedly designates a criminal or an enemy is called a "Rock Slam."

The other two emergencies were cause by Rock Slammers, so upgrade the importance of Rock Slam and ordinary sec[urity] checks.

Occasionally Hubbard set off the urgency of his writings with relevant personal experiences.

Early darkness and autumn chill are upon us. I have my new Pontiac out in the garage (sigh) and no spare instant to drive it. It's my cameras and cars which suffer in the midst of all these flaps.

Ron's Journal No. 3

Hubbard sets a tone of personal annoyance at not being able to enjoy having a weekend off.

Well, I just spent one of those weekends where after a full week's work I find myself alone with an avalanche of emergency despatches.

His customer's building was raided by federal agents. The role Hubbard set for the press is one of covering up for the actions of government.

The U.S. Government went more than abnormally insane last week and did the following all off its own little bat:

(1) Organized a smear campaign in the press to cover up

The following two notes also show one importance of being a church and having religious books.

(2) An armed raid on a church and

(3) The seizure of philosophical religious book stocks.

Hubbard associated the raid by the US federal government with tactics by Hitler.

These were Hitler's exact tactics when he got "agin" something. The smear campaign was in Washington D.C. papers, on the streets four hours before the raid occurred. Carefully the papers make no mention of "Church" or seizure of religious texts. The Church was the Founding Church of Scientology. The books were 21 titles of our Scientology texts.

The proper response to a government raid was said to stand one's ground even though one may have been stunned.

The org today is operating and, though shocked, stood up well to the violence done. Meters were also seized.

The sequence of events seems to denote some cause between the government raid and offering President Kennedy help with government space travel.

The action came soon after I offered Kennedy, a Catholic, help in the space race.

Hubbard gave the scene as one in which ideas he related as facts could be the downfall of the US government. The reasoning for the downfall is given as a factual contradiction of the US Constitution. The result of the distribution of these ideas of fact is given as hesitation on the part of other countries in dealing with the United States. Hubbard also asked a rhetorical question of who would want to be associated with a country about which he would relate these facts?

But what is interesting is that no press has mentioned the above (1), (2), (3) facts. Given to the public just as they are, they could ruin the Kennedy regime, if not the U.S. Government over a longer period. They are in the teeth of the Constitution of the United States and abroad would give pause to all this enthusiasm for U.S. domination of world defence. Who wants to be tied up with a country dedicated to religious persecution and Hitler methodology?

Hubbard publicly stated his satisfaction with the job done by the organization in Washington, D.C., which was raided by federal agents. He seemed convinced that as a result of his work, his customer will be successful. He then advised his readers that they could help by spreading the word to their friends and to the local newspaper:

The DC org was superb! And as a result of our work we'll surely win. You can help too. Just tell it to our local paper and your friends, "The U.S. Government has conducted a smear campaign in the press to cover up a raid on a church and the seizure of all stocks of 21 religious and philosophical textbooks; wasn't that the way Hitler began?"

Hubbard ended up his news letter with a note of optimism, getting across the point that only good news had been received up until the unexpected raid by the US government. He expressed surprise that such an action could take place, then reassured his audience that even such an unpleasant surprise could still turn into good news for the movement.

It did look like a lovely New Year. For days, until the U.S. Government went mad, I received only good news from everywhere. And then Bang. But maybe that will be good news too.

We'll still be alive when the cold wind moans through the girders of their gutted buildings. And we'll be alive when the only government on Pennsylvania Avenue will be the frightened scurry of a paper in the dusty street.

The sad part of it is, they could have been alive too.

A Happy New Year to you.

HCO Information Letter of January 15, AD.13
The DC Situation

Hubbard started out this letter with a statement to his readers of what he said was general knowledge.

As you know on January 5, 1963, the Health Education and Welfare Dept., and the "Food and Drug Administration" of the US. Government conducted a smear campaign in the press and then raided the Founding Church of Scientology in Washington and seized the total stock of 21 book titles.

He first characterized the raid as a result of the government agencies' attack not personally upon his customer, but against "quasi-religious" groups in general. He stated that the raid against his customer's organization was merely a test case which, if successful, would mean government systematic eradication of "all religious psychology in the U.S." He used a time sequence of events in an example apparently intended to show cause. First he said Saint Thomas Aquinas invented psychology in the 13th century. He next said that the government raiding agency was founded when the US president was "so friendly with Communism." A consequence of these two events was the idea that the US government was really trying to use the Department of Health, Education and Welfare as a form of political secret police. He expressed disbelief in the idea that the government was really trying to eradicate "quasi-religious" groups.

As data comes in, the raid was a spearhead of an organized attack by HEW's FDA on "quasi-religious groups who use healing aids" and is their test case so they can shut down all religious psychology in the U.S. As psychology was founded by Saint Thomas Aquinas of the Roman Catholic Church in the 13th century, and as the FDA was founded when Roosevelt was so friendly with Communism, we think the U.S. Government is trying its strength against all free thought in an effort to set up an NKVD of thought in the Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare. We don't think they are out to get "quasi-religious groups."

Hubbard brought up the idea that the government was terrified of his customer. He portrayed intent on the part of the government to make his customer's actions illegal before his customer's "horrible honesty spreads."

Our Security Check utterly panicked the Government. They quoted it to the papers. They've got to get the E-Meter made illegal before this horrible honesty spreads.

Hubbard advocated writing to members of congress. He let it be known that ample funds were being collected to support his customer's religious freedom and gave reassurances that lawyers of good quality were being employed. Not only that, but he stated that he was going to get more back than just what had been seized during the raid in Washington, D.C.

We have heavily written Congress. The FCDC* is collectin [sic] a million dollar fund for Religious Freedom. We have the best attorneys in Washington. And we are not only going to get our books and meters back.

*Founding Church of Scientology in Washington, D.C.

He further stated that the government intended to confiscate anything in the country known as a "healing device" or a lie detector. He emphasized that notion as fact, and stated that the government's slogan was, "'Make the U.S. safe for Communists and criminals.' And Government agents."

In the Governments they plan to seize, on the basis of this case, every "healing device" in the United States and every lie detector in the country. That's their goal. "Make the U.S. safe for Communists and criminals." And Government agents.

Hubbard stated that it was a mistake to choose his customer as the test case for the scenario that he depicted. He acknowledged the possibility of "quacks" in the country, but gave assurances that he and his customer did not possess that quality.

They really messed up their attack by choosing us for their test case. Possibly there are quacks in the U.S. But we're not amongst them.

Hubbard typified the nature of a welfare department, such as the one that raided his customer, as one that specializes in victims. In one instance Hubbard capitalized the first letter of "victims" to express the personification of the concept, that he was talking about victims more as an abstract notion than as people. He stated, "They reward only victims. They make only victims." A conclusion that could be drawn from this, he stated, was that the welfare department could, at best, be thought of as a "reformed gangster."

The officials of a Welfare [sic] Department specialize in Victims. They are personally interested only in victims. They reward only victims. They make only victims. The professional do-gooder is at best a reformed gangster.

Hubbard then put his connections in proximity to each other in a form by which welfare seemed to promote helplessness.

Welfare states are run for victims, think only about victims and create only victims. That is the basic disease of all socialistic endeavors. Welfarism is a psychotic mental disease born out of guilty conscience and conducted only for the victim by those that try to make victims. Government of the helpless by the helpless and for the helpless has always perished from this Earth.

He then acknowledged that he had been a bit extreme and that he might even be called an unpleasant name for that. His reasoning for his action was that he despised sickness being sold to the public as health.

Well, this outburst makes me no Tory. It's just that I despise psychosis peddled as the ultimate sanity.

Hubbard stated the raid upon his customer raised a question as to whether the government was really a government or a book-burning form of Fascism that strove to suppress those who sought truth. He also stated that the reason Europe did not print news of the raid was that he stopped that from happening. He did not state how he might have done that, merely, "I stopped it."

For this attack opened the burning question: Is this a Constitutional Government of the United States? Or is it a Hitlerian Fascism that raids churches, burns books and tries to stamp out searches after truth?

There was no European press on it. I stopped it.

Hubbard set a sequence of events to show that this sort of situation had happened before, but that if his readers let this happen again, they might not get another chance. He expressed regret that the era of greatness was a thing of the past and pointed out that his readers were experiencing the death throes of a dying country. In closing he stressed that it was important for his customers to do their jobs and hope for a better day.

But force without principle, cannons without a decent cause, have laid Earth waste before. And it would seem are about to do it again, finally and thoroughly.

The day of Great Nations is dead. But the dying agonies of these States seek to strike us all into degradation.

Just hold on and do your job, get and give case gains and get clear. And another day, a better day will dawn for all of us.

This text used the media to spotlight a point that Hubbard thought important for his customer.

HCO Information Letter of June 4, 1963
Sobering Facts

Hubbard reported that this letter was a reprint of an article for which he asked permission from King Features Syndicate. He said the article was written by Ralph de Toledano. The article, in turn described a book that de Toledano said had been "smuggled out the Soviet Union." The book described was written by a General Vasily D. Sokolovsky, who was a senior official in the Red Army. In his book Sokolovsky issued disinformation that was presented by de Toledano and then by Hubbard with no comment as to whether the information they were forwarding was true or not. The contents of the book were merely replicated from the book by de Toledano and then reprinted under Hubbard.

King Features Syndicate of New York very kindly gave us permission recently to reprint the following release of the book Soviet Military Strategy by Ralph de Toledano.

The present lull in the world situation is deceptive in inducing a leisurely sense of time.

Here is the release:

RUSS A-WAR WOULD SMASH U.S. - SOVIET 'MEIN KAMPF' DETAILS BLUEPRINT FOR HOLOCAUST By Ralph de Toledano Copyright 1962, King Features Syndicate, Inc.

A 450-page book, smuggled out of the Soviet Union, may jolt the American people out of the horse-and-buggy strategic thinking - that is, if the text is ever made public.

Written by Marshal Vasily D. Sokolovsky and 13 other senior officers of the Red army, it is "Mein Kampf" [sic] blueprint for burying the West in a nuclear holocaust.

The book, "Soviet Military Strategy", represents the U.S.S.R.'s official military position. Its major point is, that the Soviet Union must and will launch an all-out nuclear attack on the United States once it has superiority in the new weapons.

While the U.S.S.R. is in the process of seeking this lead, it will continue to operate behind a propaganda smokescreen - calling for "negotiation" with the West, the relaxation of tension, and end to the war.

The book was said to contain "some of the key points in the Soviet nuclear war plan," and it was said that these points were under study by experts in the highest levels of the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency. Point number one, as presented from the view of the Soviet General in his presumably English-language book, was that the Soviet Union was currently still subject to a surprise attack. As a result of this vulnerability, "political" means would be put into effect as a preventive measure. The word "political" was put in quotation marks to designate that was the word used by the Soviet General. Point number three clarified point one as follows:

Here are some of the key points in the Soviet nuclear war plan - now being secretly studied by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon's highest echelons:

1. A surprise attack by the West on the Soviet Union is still possible. Therefore "political" means must be used to prevent it. ...

3. War can be won only be a "first strike" and through the "total Destruction" of the enemy. "Wars of liberation" merely serve political ends.

Part of the message contained in the article was that the enemy was to be moved "in as close to the American heartland as possible," leaving the question open of whether this part of the plan was already underway. It was further stated that the enemy that was thus pre-positioned in the United States was to move into areas even though they might be subject to lethal doses of radiation. This was said not to be a factor in the alleged takeover.

6. All troops must be developed long before the attack signal is given. These forces must be dug in as close to the American heartland as possible so that they can be moved readily after the knockout blow.

7. Radioactivity is not considered a military factor. Field commanders will be under instructions to move into contaminated areas immediately, regardless of the loss of life to Soviet troops exposed to radioactivity.

HCO Information Letter of November 24, 1963
Essential Information every Scientologist should know

Part of the purpose of this text seems to be the counteracting of influence upon his customer that any media may have had. Hubbard or his staff gave his customer information meant to "correct" the information that apparently been previously distributed by the press.

To correct certain misconceptions held by newspapers and areas of the public, the following information is released to assist Scientologists in correcting such ideas:

Some of the information presented concerned the person of L. Ron Hubbard. It was stated that he had an income of his own, but that some of his expenses were paid by the customer. It was also stated that the customer was in debt to Hubbard for "considerable sums" of money. Nevertheless, Hubbard was also said to have paid all his expenses of his original research. Hubbard was stated to have donated all proceeds from his first book to the customer he had at the time. It was also stated that Hubbard owned the estate at which his customer was doing business, that he received no rent, and that he had obtained the money to buy that estate from sales of properties he held in the United States.

LRH* has his own personal income. Organizations pay his expenses when traveling and some research expenses. Organisations currently owe LRH considerable sums of moneys loaned to them by LRH - Johannesburg over 3,000 pounds, London 7,000 pounds, etc.

*L. Ron Hubbard

LRH paid all the original costs of research out of his own pocket. The royalties of the first book, DMSMH*, were all given to the first foundations. LRH owns Saint Hill as his own home, paying for it with his own monies received from the sales of a Virginia property and a yacht he owned. He receives no rent for Saint Hill partial use by HCO Division of HASI* or the Saint Hill Course.

*Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health
*Hubbard Association of Scientologists International

Hubbard or his staff informed his customers that

There would be nothing wrong if LRH did make money from Scientology as Scientologists are perfectly willing to pay him for his services in administration and research. Boards and officers often express the hope of paying Ron book royalties and sums for good will and amounts loaned and LRH will be perfectly willing to accept them. LRH in some Orgs has drawn a nominal salary in the past as Co-ordinator of Research and it has been well earned but he has drawn no pay for the past several years until lately when 25 pounds a week was given him for his out of pocket expenses.

Under the heading of "Organizations," the text stated that Hubbard's first organizations had not been formed or controlled personally by him, and that these organizations were a failure. Specifically, the "press and public relations" of the organizations were stated to have been mishandled by others. One quote in particular is ascribed to a person other than Hubbard.

To the late Joe Winter M.D., an original board member, we owe the stress on psychosomatic medicine. "70% of all ills are psycho-somatic, Dianetics can cure them" was Winter's and these handouts were written by Winter.

The organizations that Hubbard allegedly formed personally were praised for their productiveness in non-communist parts of the world. It was further stated that those organizations continued asking Hubbard for his assistance. Hubbard was said to have set records in his service to his organizations, and a specific figure was assigned to his worthiness.

The record of advance and growth under LRH direction and the able service of those he has appointed mark something like a record. Any International firm would have paid $125,000 a year to a general-manager who could have duplicated this feat.

Under the heading of "Press" was stated that bad press begets bad press. Therefore the cause of any bad press in existence at the time would have been due to the earlier bad press that, as stated above, originated from the organizations that, it was stated, were not formed or controlled by Hubbard. The reader was assured that the trend supposedly inherited by Hubbard was gradually being reversed. Not only that, but all press was alleged to be based on attacks inspired by the American Medical Association and the American communists. Furthermore, it was emphasized, nobody from the press had over a period of 13 years personally interviewed Hubbard. It was said to be significant that the press would write stories about Hubbard without having first interviewed him. A sign was given that the old trend was, indeed, being reversed in that a "star writer" from The Saturday Evening Post was being sent to interview Hubbard at his estate in England.

Under the heading of "Degrees" was stated,

You often hear slurs on LRH "lack of degrees". .... But there are no degrees or courses given in Universities for the subjects he researches. He does not practice in any field requiring a degree. He does not need or want degrees, but even so he has them.

Hubbard's customer used an electrical device, called an E-Meter, to interrogate members of the customer's organization. Both an association and a disassociation was made between this device and "subversives" and is cited with a short introduction as follows:

The E-Meter is actually a psycho-galvanometer invented about 60 years ago. It is capable of being used as a lie detector. Our modern meter is a transistor version and is tuned to detect overcharged mental areas. ... It does not diagnose and will not cure illness and has never been used as such.

By the following Hubbard let the potential of the E-Meter to detect subversives be known to its users.

The Meter is feared by subversives. Only Scientologists with meters could detect subversives. Trained Scientologists are the world's foremost meter or lie detector operators. Therefore subversive and criminal elements are terrified of and fight the meter.

Even though Hubbard stated the E-Meter had great potential, he also stated that restrictions were usually self-imposed on this great potential. The above-mentioned potential was said to be directed towards people knowing truth about themselves. It was also stated that this potential was available to the general public in "toy stores."

That Scientologists seldom use the meter to detect subversion and only use it to assist people to know the truth about themselves, does not deter this attack. Cruder E-Meters are generally available in the world and one version can be bought in toy stores in the U.S.

Under the heading "The Politics of Scientology" it was stated that the customer's politics could easily turn into the politics of freedom. The politics of freedom was set in opposition to the politics of bureaucracy. Hubbard wrote that the bureaucracies labeled anything that limited the rights of bureaucracy as "Rightist." In his words,

A rightist is defined "as one who believes in limiting bureaucracies and in the rights of the individual." Therefore Scientology whether it will or no gets classed as a "Rightist movement". It is listed in directories in the U.S. as one of the first 17 Rightist Movements of the U.S.

In Hubbard's world, the powers-that-be also included the Communists, which he wrote with a capital "C." The politics of the communists were said to include promoting any action that gave the state total power. This was set in opposition to individual's and the customer's rights. The politics of Communism was even said to include denying the individual the "right to be paid for his work." As Hubbard stated, "This is slavery in modern garb." Thus, Hubbard reasoned, his customer followed a politic that was unlike that of communism. In regards to how this could affect the customer's public relations, he wrote, "The Communist uses all manner of fellow travelers to spread his ideas and this helps to give us bad press."

Yet another reason was given for the negative light the press had shed upon Hubbard's customer. In more statements, Hubbard again referred to the potential of his customer to "appear" to heal people and this appearance of healing was said to be an "economic threat" to the drug manufacturers and medical associations. Billions of dollars in income was said to be at stake due to this appearance of healing without drugs. Hubbard used this as another reason for his customer getting negative press, simultaneously disclaiming any interest in healing people.

The Medical Associations and drug manufacturers fear the appearance of easy drugless healing and so campaign against any economic threat to their multi-billion dollar income. This also gives us bad press even though we have small interest in healing.

The reasons for the negative publicity had been brought up, analyzed, communicated and discounted. With that done, the press was said to be not actually relevant when it came to increasing income for the customer.

But press has no real bearing on Scientology growth. Good news stories and bad news stories alike do not really increase or decrease Central Organization traffic. Scientology goes by word of mouth, not by press.

Material with which the customer dealt was said to be similar to the material upon Buddhism was based. To support this statement, the name of the person who supposedly founded Buddhism was given, "Gautama Siddhartha," and an approximate time frame was given during which he "attempted" this material, "2,500 years ago." Buddhism was described as the world's first civilized religion, and religion was said to be philosophy that dealt with people as spirits. The laws of the world's first civilized religion were said to be very close to those of the customer's. The conclusion of these statements was said not to be that the customer practiced Buddhism, but that there was little doubt that the customer was dealing in the area of religion when using the prescribed material.

Another statement given to support the religious nature of the customer was that theosophy followed a set of rules similar to those that the customer followed. It was said that theosophy had been declared a religion by an authoritative body, namely US federal courts.

The conclusion given was that the customer therefore practiced a body of knowledge that was religion. The customer was reassured that there was never really any doubt but that this knowledge had always been a religion The reason given for this certainty was that religion was supposedly, by definition, the study of the spiritual nature of human beings. To further clarify this statement it was pointed out that this idea was in contrast to the study of the animal nature of the human race.

Under the heading of "Mission" is the customer's mission statement "to give Man wisdom and freedom." This was said to have a civilizing nature, and it was also said to be a matter of the individual's freedom. It was stated that "Men are prisoners of themselves" and that they would only ever be liberated by "truth." One conclusion drawn from this information was that if human beings were sane, then their societies would be sane. In conjunction with this it was stated,

If you, the individual, knew the truth and were processed toward the truth, you would be free. Only lies degrade you. This is the lesson of Scientology.

In regards to various sentiments that people might have toward the above mission, it was said that combating the stated mission was impossible. For that reason preferences were expressed that the customer not make a habit out of confronting any opposing views or even taking them seriously.

Those who opposed the mission were said to be at a disadvantage in that they dealt with only finite periods of time whereas the customer did not. In summary,

A thousand years from now Scientology will be a bright name when anything now governed will have vanished from the role of nations.

As an incentive for future hope it was stated that charging money to have the customer receive this mental processing could eventually be a thing of the past once the full intention of the customer's body of knowledge came into play.

E-Meter Persecution by the Food and Drug Admin.

In this case Hubbard ascribed public investigations into his customer to the Catholic Church. This conclusion was come to after statements that an Australian Catholic "bigot" was submitting a report to the authorities in that country and that the US Federal Drug Administration was inspired by Catholics. He wrote this was surprising for him as he thought the Catholics no longer burned witches, for which reason he stated they were driven from England in centuries past. Hubbard then, perhaps light-heartedly, suggested that his customer "hex" Anderson and the FDA. Hubbard also commented that the graves of the witches allegedly burned by Catholics several hundred years earlier were the best kept in the local cemetery. Using this as a basis he suggested, perhaps lightheartedly, that

It's almost a recommendation, it seems, to be harassed by the Catholics! ....

The Melbourne Enquiry into Scientology

Regarding the opposition party "enquiry" into Scientology in the State Parliament in Melbourne and its "findings" the following story was written in reply by L. Ron Hubbard, Founder of Scientology.

In regard to the inquiry into Hubbard's customer in Australia and its findings, Hubbard rhetorically asked

Does a Man in the 20th Century have a right to write what he believes to be the truth?

Hubbard wrote that he was a writer and a philosopher. To substantiate this he stated he had a degree in philosophy. He placed this concept in contrast to being a psychiatrist or a psychologist, for which he wrote he did not have a degree. He further substantiated the claim to being a writer by saying that he had written books. Not only that but he said millions of people had read the books he wrote. He expressed solidarity with his fellow man in believing that people are good and that they deserve help.

Hubbard wrote that there are many variations of prejudice, and that one of these variations was present in the Australian inquiry. He founded that conclusion by saying that the investigators in Australia had already come to their conclusions before they held their investigation. Hubbard stated that the Australian inquiry would not have taken place in England because it would supposedly "have been laughed out of existence." He wrote that the conduct of the inquiry was illegal according to what he termed "common law," and that if it would have taken place in England, the attorneys would certainly have been disbarred.

In contrast to the prior disapproval, Hubbard also expressed a sort of mercy in stating

Well, Australia is young. In 1942 as the senior US naval officer in Northern Australia by a fluke of fate I helped save them from the Japanese. For the sake of Scientologists there, I will go on helping them. They have a lot to learn.

He also, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, expressed sympathy for his presumed persecutors, and gave fear as a reason for their actions.

In closing, Hubbard again invoked the three witches allegedly executed for "heresy" buried in the local cemetery. He wrote the same sort of barbarism that was driven from England in the past was driving his current opposition, and this was supposedly reinforced in that both his and the witches enemies were Catholic. He ended this section on a thankful note.

Let us be thankful that this desire to persecute is now 12,500 miles away from us....

Government Conflicts

In this letter Hubbard stated that conflict with "governments" started in January two years prior when his customer's Washington, D.C. organization was raided by federal agents.

He stated that the raid was unavoidable, but that the era it brought upon the customer was coming to an end and was completely to the customer's good. He wrote of errors committed in the Australian inquiry on the part of the government and stated that the newspapers would avoid printing the story for fear of being sued in court. He also stated that some conduct occurred in Australia on the part of the government that, although not legal, shed a very poor light upon his customer's accusers. Hubbard reassured his client:

I have worked on all this since January 1963, mining the road they would have to travel. And they are obligingly exploding the mines on schedule.

All we have to do is smartly execute the plans and orders already prepared and very soon we will have a complete victory.

Then our government conflict phase will be over. With such victories to our credit other governments will not attack.

The keynote of our campaign has been to do right and keep our noses clean and thus render ourselves invulnerable to proper charges. The attackers thus had nothing to attack but their own idea of us. As this was false, winning points on them is very easy. In each case they attacked us for doing things we do not do.

In declaring victory in the US, Hubbard gave the reason for allegedly poor press coverage as fear by the newspapers of being sued. He assured his readers those fears would be well-founded as he indeed had intentions of suing.

Issue III

From: L. Ron Hubbard
Our U.S. Suits against newspapers on FDA raid stories etc.

In this letter Hubbard suggested the best plan of action as a lawsuit against the newspaper that published the story about the raid on his customer's organization in Washington. He wrote that it would also be helpful to name in the suit the "American Medical Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the Better Business Bureau" and the press office that forwarded the story. He wrote that the charge in the suit should be anti-monopoly in nature, and specifically proposed, "'Libel and slander to forward a Conspiracy to monopolize healing in contravention of the Sherman Anti-Trust Laws' or a similar anti-monopoly act."

His customer, he stressed, should be neither put on trial nor defended. The reason he gave this should not happen was that the evidence was inconclusive for any charges.

Hubbard wrote that anything written negative about himself or his customer was based on a 15 year long campaign by the American Medical Association (AMA) to vilify him. This alleged vilification was said to have been caused by "news releases" issued by the AMA to newspapers and magazine. A specific example of such an action was given as an article published by the Diner's Club Magazine. That sort of article, stated Hubbard, was standard fare for the AMA.

The source of the current story about his customer, wrote Hubbard, was the array of old stories. In connection with this he emphasized that he had never been interviewed by a newspaper reporter. Only one writer, "Phelan of the Saturday Evening Post Magazine," was said to have ever interviewed Hubbard. From Hubbard's perspective, that was not really an interview as all Phelan supposedly did was confront Hubbard with newspaper clippings of articles that had been written about the customer. The reason Hubbard gave for this not to be taken seriously was that "He never asked anything about us." ....

It was a remarkable coincidence, Hubbard commented, that before he appeared to challenge the "healing empires" of the AMA and the American Psychological Association, he receive an abundance of personal press coverage, and, as he stressed, it was all good.

"Suddenly, after 20 years of fine personal press in U.S. papers, (1930-1950) the moment my first book on healing is published, good press became violently bad press so that in 1950 "Time Magazine devoted more space to my doings than the President" as one of my press agents once said. And it was all bad press. My book said "any two people by reading this book could help each other" and the book invaded psychosomatic medicine, which accounts for 70% of Mans [sic] ills The change from hero to devil occurred in one day - May 9, 1950, the publication date of Dianetics The Modern Science of Mental Health - the runaway health best seller of all time."

researcher's note: Hubbard's theories made their first public appearance in an article called "'Dianetics': a new science of the mind" in the May 1950 edition of the 25 cent Astounding Science Fiction magazine. Hubbard did not make it a habit to mention the name of this magazine to his client.

The basis of the suit against the AMA and the APA, Hubbard continued, was that neither "modern medicine" nor "qualification as a medial doctor" were needed to cure any human condition, as he wrote. As evidence to support this assertion he gave the authority of the "Better Business Bureau," which had allegedly stated that "nobody can cure anything including the MDs." As further evidence of the medical profession's lack of trustworthiness, Hubbard stated that practically no member of the medical profession have ever discovered a cure. He then went a step further to say that the notion the public had that doctors could cure anything had been planted there by doctors themselves. To reinforce this notion, doctors were also alleged to have planted in the public mind the dangerousness of anyone curing anything except doctors. To back up this allegation, Hubbard gave the illegality of non-members of the AMA in practicing medicine, and specifically mentioned people trained in the Army as doctors being denied the right to practice medicine as proof. In conclusion he stated,

Yet, as psychiatrists they kill their patients. And adequate proof exists that medical practice is dangerous. ....

Certain points Hubbard said to keep in mind about the law suits in the USA included:

(1) That defending attorneys will quote old clippings as facts unless these are included and answered in our own charges.

(2) That the medical doctor in issuing pamphlets through the Better Business Bureau states that "anyone who says he can cure anything is a quack" and that the medical doctor states he can't cure anything - so why should he have a healing monopoly?

Points Hubbard mentioned about the AMA included:

(5) That issues to press by the AMA and their companion medical doctor group, the APA, consisting [sic] of libel and slanderous attacks and are their means of maintaining a monopoly.

(6) That the AMA does this to all other healing groups.

(7) That neither myself or Scientology need be tried as evidence of defamation issued by the AMA exists concerning many healing groups.

Concerning the poor press coverage Hubbard and his client had received prior to the law suits, he wrote:

(9) That I was never given any bad character anywhere until 1950 when I published a book threatening the profitableness of healing and threatening to break their monopoly. It is easy to prove any charge made in the press by the AMA false. Otherwise I long since would have been put of action.

(10) That the newspapers and clipping bureaus have uniformly forwarded AMA slanders and have not ever sought or published actual interviews of myself. That all actual evidence has been carefully avoided for 15 years.

(11) That it is not necessary to refute press charges over the past 15 years but to use them to show (when attempts are made by the defense to use them) that the campaign is of long duration and is an attempt at monopoly through libel and slander. ....

Subject: Validity of Vested Interests, Psychiatry's latest development

This contains a photocopy of "Punishment-Reward Therapy Gives Pervert His Freedom" by Richard Homan, Special to the Herald Tribune, Washington Post copyright. Article starts out:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 26. - A Silver Spring, Md., father who admitted molesting children is on probation today after a psychiatrist testified that the man had responded favorably to painful electric shock treatment. ...

The article ends with:

Questioned later, he said that the method is successful in about 90 percent of neurosis cases. He said that alcoholics, drug addicts and psychotics are being successfully treated, although valid statistics on percentages of cures are still unavailable. He said the treatment should not be confused with shock treatment used by psychotherapists to jolt patients out of a traumatic state, but rather is a variation on Pavlovian thinking, by which a subject is rewarded for good thoughts, and given pain for evil ones.

The accompanying commentary by Hubbard states that the news story "shows the latest tactics in 'treatment'." He clarified the use of quotation marks around "treatment" by further stating "Caning and other types of mayhem have long since been outlawed," signifying that "treatment," as used in this context, does not imply a cure. Hubbard further reinforced this notion by writing, "This 'treatment' would make it impossible to properly treat the patient afterwards and would lower general ability." He reassured his customer that their own treatment would be effective without involving similar cruelty, and ended with the statement

Psychiatry has no basis in law. Most of its technology comes from Russia.

Enquiry Rumour UK

In discussing the current rumor of government inquiry and his client's previous dealings with governments in other countries, Hubbard revealed the tools and the goal he had planned for the next government inquiry.

4. Obviously we could have had a ball and put psychiatry on trial for murder, mercy killings, sterilization, torture, and sex practices and could have wiped out psychiatry's good name

The lesson learned was that his customer had been led down the "path to slaughter" for the last time.

6. If we are ever so involved again we demand one on all mental healing activities including psychiatry and demand it loudly. And lead them up the path to slaughter.

Hubbard drafted a contingency plan in the event that a government inquiry into his client was found to be underway, which combined political, undercover and press coverage as follows:

(1) MarySue [sic] will write a letter for the Chaplain to all members of Parliament and have it photolithed and if it hots up mail it to all members of Parliament.

(2) Get a detective on that lord's past to unearth the tid-bits. They're there.

(3) Stress sex and blood in psychiatry and collect data and mount an all out attack in the press on psychiatry, so that "Mental Health" sees that they are going to get hurt and will cool off.

A cardinal rule of Hubbard's was to refuse to let his client be put on the defensive. This was done in this case by building a train of thought that progressively moved away from questions about his client. He gave an example as follows:

We refuse to discuss or describe Scientology. As near as we come is "Well Scientology isn't like psychiatry. In psychiatry they think adultery is a cure for .......". You get it. Curve every answer with answers that MAKE LURID PRESS TO PSYCHIATRY'S COST. Papers by policy only want blood and sex - so give them Psychiatry's and they'll print it. Further couple the words Psychiatry and Capitalism - allege that Psychiatry is the Capitalist tool (a Conservative opened the attack in the UK) and found the press beating the drum for us. ....

Another rule Hubbard used, in this case, was to directly relate negative outside feedback to his customer's allegedly positive internal products. To the customer, this would mean that the greater the outside attack, the greater the internal performance, which in jargon is "up statistic" in the following:

8. Remember those things - we won against the FDA. We are winning on US tax. We have caught the ball on UK tax. Part of our trouble is that we're an up statistic and governments are SP [suppressive person, a category of enemy] and strike at all rising statistics.

Applied in reverse, the above would then mean that those who struck out at, or disagreed strongly, with his customer, were enemies. ....

In preparation for the coming trend, Hubbard sought to prepare his customers for the worst yet to come:

13. This is nothing compared to what will happen when we start taking SPs out of the government! They are rightly afraid.

14. So don't you be. Tomorrow belongs to us. Inevitably there are bumps in the road.

Committee for Sane Psychiatry

In this letter, Hubbard advertised for staff members who had either "a knowledge of press" or "an acquaintance with the conditions of the insane in institutions." A name of a person in his customer's organization was given as the one to contact in case either of those two conditions were met. The reason Hubbard gave:

2. We are forming a "Committee for Sane Psychiatry" that will be charged with the responsibility of bringing to the attention of the world the brutal treatment and sex orgies in institutions and drive psychiatry into accept lawful regulation by Parliament and Congress.

The operating procedure for the new task force was described, in part, as follows:

4. Case histories or brutal savage treatment are to be collected and the lurid nature of "treatment" is to be fully documented and exposed by the Committee.

Hubbard listed the goal of the ad hoc group:

6. The object is to obtain legislation by press campaigns and public support to make murder, mayhem and sex violation illegal in institutions for the insane.

HCO Executive Letter of 21 February 1966
Calculated Risks

This letter is an example of turning a raid by a government into a positive asset. After the federal government's raid on the customer's Washington, D.C. headquarters, Hubbard informed his public that he had taken a "calculated risk" at the time of the raid that was then coming to fruition, slightly three years after the fact. The result, he stated, was that "... nothing can stop us." He said that at the time he realized that his client would be facing more raids and investigations by "governments." Therefore, he continued, and pointed out that this detail could be corroborated by officers in his client's organization, he "ordered them to fight a delaying action while " he continued his own investigations. The strategy he would pursue was the only one that could win, that of "total technology." "Total technology" is what the name implies; considerations about a situation are consumed by those of technique. To illustrate how the customer could think of what he had done, Hubbard gave an analogy:

This was somewhat like seeing the Indians in the distance and instead of readying a barricade, going on inventing a new weapon on the gamble that you would have completed the job before the first brave got to you. Well, 'we done it'. ... And in the nick of time.

Hubbard confided to his readers that using his prescribed technology, they could continue on no matter what.

The only thing you could do to a Clear or an OT [levels of attainment in the technology] would be to make him laugh. But that isn't all a Clear could do. I trust you get it.

Technology, Hubbard continued, was the "ultimate weapon," the one that could save mankind from the enemy, the atomic bomb and unimagined horrors. The ultimate weapon, in turn, was said to be total freedom, a "freedom no gestapo can curtail. A freedom that is completely unqualified."

Hubbard then expressed relief that this technology, identified as a weapon, further identified as freedom, was in the right hands, as freedom "to be free or to strike at will without any fear of retribution could otherwise be rather grim." Hubbard reassured his public that this freedom to strike without concerns for consequence could only ever be used in a decent manner by the customer, as decency was allegedly directly proportional to the amount of technology one attained. In closing, Hubbard urged the readers to hurry to attain the technology.

Project Psychiatry

This letter provides instructions on how to set up a public relations attack, purportedly against psychiatry. In it Hubbard states that personnel are to be procured using London newspaper advertisements. (He was apparently operating in England at the time.) A London phone number was to be given as contact, which would relay inquiries to the customer's "Saint Hill" organization in East Grinstead.

The Ad should read "Investigator: services of trained personnel required for interesting work. Phone Langham 3601". Repeat the same ad with "Enquiry Agents" as its lead: Advertise often.

Hubbard authorized five people to work in the group that set up the organization. It was also to employ stenographers and filing personnel. He set the initial maximum budget at 300 pounds per week, and stated it would not go any higher until satisfactory results were achieved. The letter includes instructions not to hire personnel from an outside agency. The rationale was that past difficulties had arisen when using people from agencies were used for purposes of "legal, accounting and investigation." Hubbard emphasized that people must be hired as either individuals or as staff. "Our investigators must be our own staff and reliable."

The raids, Hubbard concluded, were the result of his no longer carrying out his old practice of investigating the investigators. In his words, "So long as we investigated attackers, the attacks folded up. When we ceased, the attacks took a new violence." Therefore a failure to investigate the outside investigators, he theorized, had surely resulted in further investigations from the outside.

Hubbard gave his readers an idea of what to expect in carrying out their vigilance against "attackers."

The attacking group as may be expected has a bad background. It is nowhere legalised by name under law. It derives any "authority" by medical degrees but psychiatrists are not qualified medical doctors in actual training and practice. Insanity has no precise definition, but is whatever they say it is. And whoever they say is insane is usually somebody who is in a temporary exhaustion or who doesn't agree with them.

Hubbard advised his public that they were on the trail of a conspiracy formed by psychiatrists. The result of this conspiracy, he said, was that psychiatrists could arbitrarily have people killed, attacked, disabled or declared insane. On top of that, Hubbard stated, psychiatrists also violated human rights. This was said to be "far too much power for one group composed of men who at best act insanely when faced with any challenge." For all humanity was aware, Hubbard stated, there was a possibility that "hopelessly insane" people were the product of psychiatrists. The reason he gave for this was that "insanity is anything anybody says it is."

Hubbard also gave graphic details illustrating the power allegedly held by psychiatrists to sexually abuse women and subsequently disable them to prevent future incriminating testimony. "And all with no fear of reprisal. Yet it is rape and murder."

Hubbard informed his readers that his preliminary research was done. He found that it did not matter if the conspiracy upon which he had just reported existed or not. The reason it did not matter, he wrote, was that psychiatry was only as strong as its individual members. Furthermore, he stated psychiatry's practitioners were "weak."

Anticipating some resistance to his efforts, Hubbard reassured his readers,

If we are challenged with incitement to riot we claim we didn't but they did by their actions.
We also will form committees to use this data, collecting together a lot of protest committees that already exist. Psychiatric bloodsports. Psychiatric Auschwitz all proven by individual cases.

The result of this work, as envisioned by Hubbard, was to be "at least one bad mark on every psychiatrist in England, a murder, an assault, or a rape or more than one."

Parliament Balniel
Retarded Children

In this letter Hubbard gives information by which his client is to understand an unsuccessful attempt, nearly ten years previously, to treat retarded children. He stated that a man named Ray Kemp had worked with retarded children in "1957 or '58." Kemp, according to Hubbard, worked out his own office and used a book authored by two teachers. Kemp's activity, according to Hubbard, was neither condoned nor discouraged by his Scientology client. Hubbard admitted that the book was based on Scientology and that Kemp was at one time associated with Scientology.

For reasons not stated by Hubbard, Kemp received unfavorable publicity about his work. Hubbard wrote that people who had a "vested interest in retarded children" drove Kemp out of business. Although Kemp allegedly had obtained some success in his work, he was said to have been "invalidated" and rejected by "groups interested in retarded children." Hubbard gave "Balniel" as the name of the person whom he suspected as the source of the trouble.

Apparently in response to publicity, Hubbard issued a number of statements. He stated that Scientology does not work with children, much less retarded children. He also said Scientology does "not accept the sick or treat the insane." He informed his public that the "two scandals" that they had heard about had absolutely no connection with "official or approved Scientology." He denied writing a book that would have been associated with scandalous activity. He wrote:

The press, uniformly and wholly incorrectly tied it all in to me personally though at the time of the "Death Lesson" scandal I had been out of the UK for months.

Hubbard summarized what he had posed as inconsistencies by telling his customer that they were being maligned in an area in which they did not work for things they did not do by a group he called a "retarded children activity."

Hubbard gave information, as a possible explanation for the above-mentioned scandals, which included the presence of private school somewhere in the same geographical area. He said he knew of a person who worked at the school and that person had reported that children had become mentally disturbed as a result of "psychiatric techniques" practiced there. He stated that state of affairs could be connected with Balniel and should therefore be included as part of his customer's investigation into "psychiatry ."

Hubbard ended up by posing a question of whether children were being raided. He then concluded that there was obviously something hidden that should be brought to light.

HCO Executive Letter of 19 July 1966
Public Attacks, Legal Point

In this letter Hubbard brought up a point to use in defense, apparently, of some unfavorable publicity. In making this point, he used it as an example to show the reader that groups that publish unfavorable information about his customer are consistent in that they make mistakes. He also took the occasion to emphasize that his customer's programs included goals that, he wrote, improved communication skills and provided intelligence by which problems could be solved. There was nothing peculiar about those actions, he assured his readers.

He also stated that, in the course of research, anything in "the whole field of human knowledge and the mind" might be written down in either books or on papers. He wrote that an endeavor was being made to make his customer's program appear out of the ordinary based on "private books and papers."

Hubbard then referred to a "newspaper group" that obtained notes that he said had been stolen from him. He said his notes looked quite out of the ordinary, and that no public person was ever intended to read them. He alleged the newspaper group had published his writing out of context, thereby misrepresenting his customer's programs.

The lesson to be learned by this, according to Hubbard, was that unfavorable information published about the customer's programs was the result of this "trick used by attackers." The trick, in turn, was to take small portions of material out of context and present it as though it were the norm. Hubbard stated this method was being used to challenge freedom of speech.

Hubbard concluded that a survey would show that Scientology's program was actually nothing out of the ordinary, and that this program consisted of five steps that he cited in the beginning of this letter.

Current Attack

In this letter Hubbard provides what he calls "confidential data" to allay concerns about recent negative publicity in a newspaper. This data is provided in the form of a numbered list. The first item he presents as a reason not to be concerned about the negative publicity is that it was only presented in one newspaper. "Other papers won't touch it," he wrote. The next reason given for non-concern was that there was only a small number of people behind the story. This assertion was further supposed to be reassuring in that "we know the criminal background and connections of each one." Hubbard next stated that the people behind the newspaper story were actually part of a conspiracy and that they would soon be held accountable for their actions.

To explain the poor public relations, Hubbard wrote, "We have military and defense value, you know, can raise I.Q. in Scientists, shorten reaction time in pilots, improve judgement [sic] in troops and undo brainwashing." That sort of ability was routinely attacked, Hubbard claimed, by the enemies of the country.

Hubbard also made use of a book distributed by Scientology book stores called the "Brainwashing Manual" in this letter. The "Brainwashing Manual" purports to be a "Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics." In an effort to have the Brainwashing Manual taken seriously, Hubbard stated that the volume had been "published in the US Congressional Record." He stated that the manual gives the reasons why his group received negative publicity. These reasons, he summarized, included their refusal to be blackmailed into being disloyal to their cause. Speaking of the Brainwashing Manual, he stated "You can have copies of it for free if you spread them around town."

In an apparent attempt to bolster fighting spirit in the face of bad news, Hubbard wrote that his client's detractors were "walking straight into a minefield." This meant, he continued, that his client's detractors would face personal ruin the moment they were confronted. That stated, Hubbard swung back into military terminology and wrote, "We're sitting here with 12 inch howitzers all loaded and ready to fire. Just make sure we do our jobs and in our attack, don't miss."

HCO Information Letter of 16 October 1968
To: All Orgs
From: Ron
Subject: Article "E-Meters Replace Guns", issued this date for general info

In this letter Hubbard relates his public relations policy to "terrorists and subversives." He stated that subversives win when opposed by an enemy that uses guns. The reason subversives win in that situation, according to Hubbard, is that the subversives win public opinion. In contrast to this Hubbard stated that subversives lose when an opponent that uses the Scientology electrical device that measures skin resistance, called the e-meter. In that case, wrote Hubbard, the subversive elements would lose not only their leaders and communication lines through which they formed resistance, but also any public support they may have had.

In this case, Hubbard also advocated "technology." He stated

A good control requires superior technology. Just now the "superior technology" in political use is mental terrorism in subversive and seditious hands.

Without this sort of controlling technology, wrote Hubbard, there were not enough guns, soldiers and police to keep a population under control or, as he called it "stem the tide." He recognized that a police force was needed, but regarded police as an emergency measure to be used only in the event that technology had failed.

In order to illustrate his point, Hubbard gave the example of the Mau Mau, which was a real-life revolutionary society in Kenya that used terrorist activities in the early 1950s in an attempt to drive out European settlers. He wrote that the Mau Mau had trained terrorists use threats and coercion in order to dominate the population. These terrorists, Hubbard wrote, should have been the ones the police went after. He said what happened instead was that the terrorists escaped detection by training others to do their work for them.

The manner in which terrorists forced others to do their work for them, as stated, included "blackmail on sex and other crimes, threats of reprisals on families, and promised punishment" in the event of non-compliance with demands. This, as Hubbard pointed out, was the reason guns did not work on subversives, as the guns only shot the pawns that the subversives had put in place. And this, in turn, was also supposed to be the reason Scientology e-meters worked better than guns in that the electrical devices could allegedly find the people behind those with whom one was confronted.

That was the reason that a London newspaper had called the e-meter "a box of rubbish," as Hubbard presumably quoted. He further commented that the newspaper was strongly motivated against his client's device in the manner described even though the news company was aware that it could be sued and lose a large sum of money.

If a person refused to voluntarily be attached to an e-meter, as Hubbard wrote, it could still be attached to his body nonetheless, and it would still supposedly function to pinpoint the person behind the person it was attached to. Hubbard pointed out that this was a good deal in the economic sense, too, as a Scientology e-meter cost less than a good rifle at the time.

The purpose of subversion, Hubbard wrote, was to "break down the natural affection and understanding that should exist among people, between employer and employee." This was in contrast to an e-meter, which alleged built up confidence. Two specifications were listed as to how to turn a loyal population against its employers. The first was to use "lies and threats" to corrupt the workers, and the second was to turn the employer against the workers through provocation. Reversing these two actions were said to undo subversion. Hubbard listed the requirements needed for subversion, and these included "messengers, delivery of arms, collection of monies" along with the appropriate roads. E-meters, Hubbard wrote, were the appropriate defense in that sort of situation. The example he gave was that the contents of trucks would no longer have to be inspected; the driver could just be hooked up to the e-meter to find out if he were "clean."

Hubbard wrote that this form of interrogation was opposed by misguided people and the dishonest people allegedly behind them. The important thing to remember was that, in the presence of subversion, "Only the honest have rights."

As Hubbard wrote, subversive people used exact technology. This technology was said to be taught to "criminals in prison, in schools, in foreign states." That was a modern-day "psychosis" that Hubbard advocated be used to "reach men's minds."

One method of overcoming subversion, Hubbard wrote, was to make its practitioners the brunt of a joke. He said that could be done even without the cooperation of the government. His idea was to put the Scientology e-meter into use. It would supposedly work so well that soon police and then governments would follow suit in order to save themselves work in arresting criminals. Supposedly continued use of the e-meter would prevent any recurrence of terrorism.

Hubbard moved on to another example, this time to the country of South Africa. South Africa's problems were said to include:

"Bad world press, fattened by new riots, a press that forgives any vandalism if anyone seeks to keep order and uses guns - i.e. vereeniging, hanga riots;"

Hubbard said that South Africa could easily regain any lost territory by using his client's plan. He stated there were only two ways it could fail. The first would be to discredit his client or the plan. The second would be the failure "to use the most modern weapons and technology to fight back."

Press Stories

This is a letter to give the client encouragement in the face of bad news. It starts out:

Dear Staffs:

Don't feel too bad about any press or publicity or "bad news".

As a tip off, we have not only located the enemy exactly but find him guilty of so many crimes that the end for this opposition is in plain view.

We are rolling up the heavy guns quietly and getting things exactly timed.

It ends up on what is meant to be the cheery news that mankind's most elementary problem was just on the verge of being discovered.

24 November

I do not like to see organizations of franchises unstabilized by too much personnel transfer. The HCO Pol[icy] L[e]t[te]r of 2 July 1968, Org Suppression Of, means what it says. Orgs become unmocked* with too many transfers.

*become unmocked, fall apart

Hubbard began this letter by reminding his readers that he does not like to see a high rate of personnel turnover in his client's organizations. That was to set the tone for stability and digging in for the future. The reason these two characteristics were emphasized was to point out their importance in attacking the World Federation of Mental Health (WFMH). Hubbard's appraisal of the WFMH:

"Red as paint and phoney as any confidence game, this was the group who were attacking us for 18 years.

Hubbard prophesied that this would be the "beginning of the end" for this group that he had selected for "counter-attack." An attack, in this case, was characterized as sending "lies to the press." The disadvantage of having lies about oneself being sent to the press, according to Hubbard, was that it made self-promotion more difficult. The advantage of these attacks, he continued, was that it made his group more aware and willing to put forth greater effort. Swinging back to a disadvantage, Hubbard stated being attacked from the outside caused confusion for those within his client's organizations, which occasionally resulted in his clients attacking each other. That confusion would come to an end, Hubbard reassured his client, once the enemy was identified as the national chapter of the WFMH in whichever country the client was residing in. The general plan was outlined as follows:

We're going to take over the mental hospitals and the political guidance and the whole field of mental healing. It may take us years, but we've got years. We've got the tech. We've got the admin. The battle may ebb and flow. We may lose here and there. We will undoubtedly win in the long run

Hubbard differentiated between the two sides in the "drama" as follows:

We're the "cowboys in the white hats". They're the "cowboys in the black hats".
We're the good guys in this drama.
We have the know how. They can only kill patients, and do.

In conclusion, Hubbard returned to the theme of stability:

So let's get set for the long pull, shall we. It is our planet after all.

The War

In this letter, Hubbard makes his reader aware that the source of all the negative publicity his client's organization has received for the previous 18 years originated from only "one group." He stated

The press attacks, the public upsets you receive and all those you have received for all your time in Scientology were generated by this one group. For eighteen years it has poured lies and slander into the press and government agencies.

Hubbard reported that the year prior to writing this letter, he and unidentified other people succeeded in narrowing down the number of people in this group to "a dozen." He continued on to say that in the year as of this writing he and unidentified others had succeeded in identifying the organization and the connections that this one group used. The members of this group were alleged to be "red," meaning communist, while the number alleged to be "card carrying" communists was quoted at four. This group supposedly exerted influence into national fields of finance, health, education and the press, and also control immigration in various countries. The mental health profession in general and psychiatry in particular were given as the means by which this group was purported to "undermine and destroy the West." Hubbard stated that he and the unidentified others were an obstacle to this group's destructive intention.

Hubbard illustrated the difference between using open violence or using apparently non-violent coercive means to control people. In his example he pointed out that if a group of hostile soldiers were to land in the client's host country and begin shooting people, they would in turn be eradicated themselves by the resident militia. If however, these same soldiers were to arrive wearing business suits, carrying passports and vouched for as doctors, Hubbard claimed they could now place their enemies into an institution where they could be "de-personalized" or killed at leisure. Hubbard then shifted from the conditional to the assertive mood and stated that

They have infiltrated boards of education, the armed services, even the churches. They hold the wives or daughters of a great many politicians and keep them "under treatment".

Hubbard continued by writing "Their 'technology' is the same as that used by Intelligence Services." Hubbard defined this sort of technology as the use of electric shock or brain operations.

Possibly in order to get across the seriousness of the situation, Hubbard wrote, "None of this is fiction. There are too many dead men around for that." He then reassured his readers that they were not on their own, and that their opposition was receiving a hard time of it.

Hubbard gave his words of hope, "Think of what it would be like to have no such opposition!!!! My, how we would expand. And will."

Hubbard wrote that a "lot of good guys" were helping to subdue this unwanted opposition. He stated that only legal means were being used. Setting his client's methods off from those of the opposition, he wrote, "We don't stoop to murder and rough house." Despite that he said his methods were nonetheless effective.

In addition he said they enemy would "faint" once aware of what they were up against. It would only be a matter of time. Hubbard gave at least part of the reason for the current difficulties as

Our error was in failing to take over total control of all mental healing in the West. Well, we'll do that too. ....

Not for public Issue
12 December 1968
Re LIFE Article and Letter

In this letter, which is "Not for public Issue," Hubbard started out by writing that Life magazine had been a "violent foe" of his client for many years. He declared that the magazine surely had a connection to "the enemy," although the technicality of discovering what that connection was had not as yet occurred. He proclaimed that the letter contained in the magazine, signed with his name, was a forgery. This, Hubbard stated, was the outcome of "an old intelligence trick," namely that the press were owned or controlled by "the enemy." To substantiate this claim, he wrote:

In England the heads of the largest newspaper chain are also members of a UK World Federation of Mental Health confederate board of directors.

Hubbard had designated the WFMH as an enemy of his client, and stated that its members also held a controlling interest in the US press.

The alleged pattern of the enemy was exemplified in the Life article, which was not cited. The article, according to Hubbard, was about a mentally ill person. This person was directed by outside sources to visit his client, keeping his identity secret, and obtain "discreditable data." This was supposed to be the method by which the magazine writer obtained his material. Driving his point home, Hubbard wrote, "But he is already a mental patient."

Hubbard wrote it was a common occurrence for his client's documents to be "found in enemy hands." He said he was aware of broken locks and windows, presumably evidence of forced access by which these documents were obtained. In this context, Hubbard again brought up the WFMH. He wrote that this organization was represented at local levels. He gave an example as follows:

In every US community, almost, local branch groups (such as Pasendena [sic] Mental Health etc as a sample) belong to the private state "National" Group.

These small town groups are advertised as 'local housewives' etc. But in fact are often composed of ex institution inmates, brainwashed, ready to stir it up as the 'public' for WFMH.

Hubbard seemed to speculate that these groups may have been causing negative publicity for his client, but then listed specific methods by which the groups allegedly caused negative publicity to occur.

The standard propaganda line is
(a) everyone is insane
(b) psychiatrists should be next to every world leader treating them weekly.
(c) Anyone should be subject to seizure as insane without process as law (a "Siberia" bill they seek to get passed and which once almost did pass the US congress.)
(d) Scientology breaks up families.
(e) Scientology prevents people from coming to their psychiatrist to seek real help.

While allegedly making allegations such as the above, the WFMH groups were said to be driving people insane in institutions, then releasing these people into society for the purpose of making "trouble." As evidence that this was the case, Hubbard stated that newspapers that were not controlled by the WFMH had also found that his client was being unfairly presented in a bad light. He then stated that the article in Life magazine was part of a "conspiracy formed at the WFMH Congress in London in August 1968." He emphasized that this conspiracy had resulted in political attacks.

Hubbard advocated calling the police to report signs of forced entry, but warned his client that calling the police may not always be appropriate as some police had received training from psychiatrists. The fact, as stated by Hubbard, that there was evidence of burglary demonstrated the fanaticism of the people he was up against. He further substantiated his allegation by stating that the literature of the enemy concerned itself not so much with healing people as it did with "world domination." The important point in all this was stated to be that the acts of the enemy were "often criminal in nature." Hubbard gave burglary and murder as examples. The redeeming value of this alleged conduct by the enemy would be that justice would surely prevail.

Hubbard ended up by playing down the overall importance of the article in Life magazine. The reason he gave for it not being important was that "[h]ardly anybody" read the article anyway. The point to remember about the letter in the magazine was that forgery was typical of the WFMH, according to Hubbard. He also wrote that sanity was the "ability to tell right from wrong," and that the WFMH had publicly stated there was "no difference between right and wrong."

The Great "Charity" Swindle

In this letter Hubbard outlined another reason for the negative publicity his client had been receiving in the press and in the British Parliament. He said that a fraudulent business would end in the event that his client succeeded. Therefore, he stated, the group behind the fraud had an interest in seeing Scientology fail. Hubbard named a billion English pounds as the size of the interest.

Hubbard alleged that this interest group was collecting large sums of money from "rich people and the deluded governments" to help insane people. Hubbard further alleged that the group was not really concerned about insane people. He said the evidence for this was that the group killed the insane people.

When his client appeared, Hubbard explained, people started spending money to obtain the Scientology technology. This supposed diversion of money from fraud was said to cause panic within the group that had been collecting money for insane people. That, Hubbard wrote, was the reason that group "desperately tried to discredit us." Nevertheless, he concluded, they would not be able to stand in the way of truth.

Executive Directive from L. Ron Hubbard

Western Countries

In this letter, Hubbard questions the ability of western countries to survive. This is a practical response to government raids upon his client. Hubbard wrote that governments that no longer take "responsibility for personal security" in that they carry out raids upon people are not really governments, but "a hostile enemy of the people." To illustrate his point, Hubbard pointed out that his client's organization experienced an average of one small crime a month, yet supposedly none had ever been solved by the police. Hubbard put that in contrast to several of the crimes having been solved by his client. On the subject of crime, Hubbard apparently reminisced on past crimes against his client that, he wrote, included theft, injury and even murder. Those, he implied, occurred without interference from the police.

Hubbard elaborated on the role of the press in this perceived situation:

The enemy in '63 dressed up Baltimore longshoremen (the enemy recruits in labour unions for members) gave them guns and badges and they raided out DC HQ and seized everything they could grab. These were called "Federal Marshals" in the press.

According to Hubbard his client had experienced a number of raids by the police although, he stated, the only evidence the police had indicated that his client was "doing good," not committing crimes. Despite this alleged evidence of good deeds, Hubbard asserted that his client was not getting protection from the police.

The reason Hubbard gave for this perceived situation was that governments were following orders from foreign psychiatrists. These psychiatrists, in turn, were alleged to be carrying out communist "instructions to destroy all Churches and Scientology in particular."

Combining encouragement with necessity being the mother of invention, Hubbard wrote:

We in desperation, conceiving that the society appeared lawless, developed our own codes of justice and our own ethics officers.

The result of this, according to Hubbard, was that his client's organization was effective as a group, even more so than western governments, in warding off communist attacks. Hubbard admitted,

All right, those are fantastic conclusions. But they add up to that by all processes of reasoning.

Hubbard allayed concerns that he was advocating revolution by asserting that he was only summarizing the facts. He wrote that sooner or later though, "[t]he people" would side with the "winner against the government." He assured his readers that,

We didn't set out to be a political force. We don't care to be one. BUT WE ARE BEING FORCED INTO TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE WEST.
[emphasis in the original]

To illustrate his point, Hubbard wrote that public groups and trade unions had placed calls to his client, asking for help in handling the government. In that regard, Hubbard stated, his client had formed "the beginning of a government." He further promoted this idea by writing that his organization had been welcomed by new or strong governments. He again stressed that he was not really promoting this idea, and that he was refusing to lead a "revolutionary force." Stressing disinterest in the field of governmental control, Hubbard wrote,

As we totally dominate the technology of the mind, as we are winning where the West was losing, as Western governments turned on us and were thereby shown to be weak or corrupt, the public as the years roll on will force us into a position of control of order whether we like it or not.

In the matter of control, Hubbard again urged avoiding classification by others as a "revolutionary force." On a positive note, he stated, "We will have to keep our truth and integrity in the face of all opposition and carry on and continue to win."

In this letter, Hubbard announced that bad news for the enemy was "good news" for his client as follows:

We have brought their status under review at the UN, have a law against psychiatry going into the UN general assembly and are busy chopping down their appropriations, charity gifts, and a few more actions even more effective.

He expressed regret for the enemy's mistake of declaring war on his client. He also commented that it would have been "nice" to be able to "win empires without wars."

To: All Anzo
From: Ron
Subject: Ron's Journal 1968 Australian - Anzo Supplement for issue at tape play BPI.

The geographical area of Australia and New Zealand (ANZO) are the topic of this information letter. This area, Hubbard stated, was the current source of the most effective negative publicity about Scientology. Indicating the urgency of the situation, he wrote,

If the US pulls out of Vietnam, that's it for Australia and New Zealand.

The reason Hubbard gave for the above statement was that the ANZO governments were allegedly "taking orders" from a psychiatric group that entailed "refusing to investigate their real murders and political chicanery."

To keep "Anzo from being deluged with Asiatic hordes, Hubbard listed the following three actions:

1. Revitalize Anzo society with Gung Ho groups.
2. Solidly oppose the election of psychiatric political stooges and
3. Set up agitation and committees to achieve US statehood quickly.

Hubbard assured his readers that he was familiar with this part of the world. He recounted a story in which he claimed to have saved the area from Japanese invasion in World War II. He said he did that even though he did not have the government's cooperation in the matter.

In conclusion, Hubbard wrote,

This is not a political statement. It is a statement and programme based on pure survival of Anzo and all my friends there.

HCO Information Letter of 28 February 1969
Ron's Journal 1969, No. 1

In this information letter, Hubbard states that he has received training in the subject of governments. He said he received this education at a university that "the reporters say I never went to." Hubbard wrote that he had observed that most important countries had been at war, off and on, since the end of the Second World War. Hubbard then commented that the exception to his rule was Russia.

The way the Russians were different, according to Hubbard, was that they used local resurgents to conduct guerrilla warfare in their host countries. Moreover, wrote Hubbard, Russia conducted "continual propaganda attacks." The purpose of this, according to Hubbard was to keep other countries' armies distracted so that they would assume the status of "security forces." For Hubbard, the moral was clear: "To defend an area one must attack."

As evidence that this conclusion was correct, Hubbard stated that

All other major nations are fighting within their own territories or on those of allies. They are fighting on their own soil or that of allies. They are losing. There isn't a ripple in the Russian homeland.

With that Hubbard made his observation of the physical universe:

So in this universe the winning tactic must be to attack.

In driving his point home, he also stated the converse was true,

The losing tactic must be to only defend.

Speaking in this capacity as a person who has been educated in modern government, Hubbard noted that the one item that contributed most highly to the success of the guerrillas directed by Russia was the presence of a "powerful cause." The cause, Hubbard wrote, had to be attractive enough to win over "large portions" of the populace.

Hubbard wrote further that the reaction of governments to these causes was to invalidate them. In this regard, he stressed that a cause must be powerful so that people would be willing to die for it. This sort of cause, he wrote, had to "be founded on real, not imaginary, abuses." [emphasis in the original] Hubbard noted the deciding factor between success or failure:

No guerrilla force agitator can build total support with empty slogans. There has to be sound solid reasons [sic] that each supporting member of the population can know for truth out of his own personal experience.

For that reason, Hubbard stated, abuses were necessary "on the part of the governing forces." He listed some of the characteristics these abuses had to possess in order to be effective. They had to have existed for a long time. Nobody in government must have done anything about them. Regardless of any slogans, he wrote, the abuses had to be factual, at least to the extent that they would be deemed sufficient cause "to bring about a revolution." Hubbard then contrasted this to western governments by saying that governments had "no adequate cause." Western governments were said to have never been exposed to "divine doubt." The result of this lack of exposure, according to Hubbard, was the necessity to back up their own actions "with guns and troops."

As an example of a western government that acted in the above manner, Hubbard wrote that the government in Kenya defeated the guerrillas, but lost the country, supposedly for a lack of cause. In explanation for that sort of behavior, Hubbard stated that governments were driven by "vested interests." These vested interests, he wrote, were "often very vicious, quite mad" He alleged they used bribery, terrorism and propaganda to force the government into attacking the people in various ways, such as by excessive taxation. Hubbard noted

It was almost as if governments in most cases were trying to force a revolutionary action into being.

He also wrote that his client's organizations would possibly have joined one of these revolutionary groups out of frustration if it were not for their "refusing to become revolutionary." If it had not been for that, he wrote, the government would have possibly driven them "into the arms of some insurgent activity." This would not have been extraordinary because groups, Hubbard wrote, which are attacked for no reason "tend to individuate or introvert." Seeming to put the situation in proportion, he wrote that his client was actually better off than other, less fortunate groups.

The conclusion Hubbard reached from the above:

So these Western governments are capable of gross abuses. Governments that attack writers, religions, peaceful social groups are never long for this world. When they attack Scientology, the highest level of mental tech on the planet, and actively support and finance the sordid seizure, torture and death of psychiatric victims they must be utterly mad themselves.

Hubbard then issued a law.


Further explaining the theory and practice of his law, Hubbard wrote

In other words they are all being attacked so they identify themselves with anyone else being attacked. If the attacked group has shown spirit and defiance and attacked the government in its turn you then have a revolution. Those are the crude mathematics of revolution.

Hubbard then stated that the problem he was to avoid was being put "into the position" of a revolutionary and that this was a difficult problem. He expressed a need to have western governments revise the methods as he previously described them to avoid being destroyed by "the outraged mob." That would not a desirable state, from Hubbard's point of view, as it would end in mass confusion. He concluded by calling for an end to government prejudice and propaganda, as that sort of conduct would end in chaos. He gave his client the following objectives:

We are trying to get these governments to clean up their own houses and so preserve ourselves.
We are trying to get the society to revitalize after decades in the mind of decayed animalism.

Hubbard set the mood of the future by writing

If we, with no crimes on our hands, can be remorselessly attacked, if the bad hats only are protected and their crimes ignored, then we have a gauge of the task before us. ....

"Pain Drug Hypnosis" is a term used in a book distributed by Scientology called the "Brainwashing Manual." In this letter, Hubbard explained it as follows:

PDH stands for Pain Drug Hypnosis. It is known to some psychiatrists as a means of compelling obedience. They sometimes use it on psychotics.

Hubbard stated that a problem had arisen from an incident that he said occurred one million years prior. He identified the problem as people who claimed to have been subjected to "Pain Drug Hypnosis" but, in reality, had not been. As a result, Hubbard instructed his client to "cool off" any negative consequences these errant claims may have caused.

Hubbard began this letter by stating that he had intensively studied the nature of his client's opposition. This, he wrote, resulted in some surprises. One of those surprises was that "certain elements" of western government had been "turning fascist." Hubbard wrote that he had read in books that fascism was "Industry operating in collusion with the military."

To further explain the nature of a fascist, Hubbard wrote:

A Fascist has certain personality traits. He tries to obliterate minorities. He burns books. He seeks 'legal' means to seize any person who disagrees and hold or murder him. He does physical experiments on people. The Fascist has the delusion that ideas can be crushed by force.

As evidence that governments or parts thereof were adapting fascism, Hubbard wrote:

In the US Civil Defense Manuals under "Psychology" it says the role is to notice anyone who tries to do anything about a nuclear bombing or who is blaming the government and seize him and put him in the stockade. No mention of soothing population or caring for emotional upset is made.

The "fascist elements" were said to have obtained influence in government in that they had offered a means whereby communism could be resisted. Hubbard stated that they probably thought of themselves as "patriots." Hubbard then stated that some of these fascists were politicians and that, by their nature, they went against the flow of "public opinion." Hubbard wrote that the communists were trying to exploit this conflict by forcing the fascists to attack "Scientology and other minorities." In this manner people would then believe that the government had no cause and that it was viciously insane. The outcome, according to Hubbard, was that people would turn against the government.

Hubbard stated that he had studied the "literature" and wrote that it said that "an insurgent must be able to operate freely amongst the people without being informed on or given over to authorities." He wrote that the insurgent would find support if the people believed the government was conducting itself in what was perceived to be an inadequate manner. In this way, Hubbard wrote, "The Communist is then able to subvert the entire country by propaganda or insurgency."

Hubbard then wrote that the western military had a high desertion rate, and used this to support his assertion that the people did not trust their government. He also speculated that the government would be overthrown as was the government of France in 1789, accompanied by similar ritualistic executions.

The relevancy of these events was stated as follows:

Communists are not attacking us. They are stirring Fascist elements up so they will attack us.

Hubbard then reiterated the same reasoning he gave above and stressed that his client was not the only group that was being attacked. He ended up with a note of encouragement.

Our opponents are a small clique running against the trend of the world.
They will lose.

Political Treatment

I've been studying the state of psychiatry and there can now be no doubt whatever that their "treatment" is political treatment and should be called such.

Hubbard began this letter by stating that he had intensively studied the "state of psychiatry." His conclusion was that psychiatric treatment was, in reality, political treatment. He wrote that people worsened under psychiatric treatment. As evidence, he mentioned the psychiatric experiments by the Germans during the Second World War.

He then contrasted this to his client's treatment, which he said had been "proven for 20 years." The reason his client had not been more successful, he wrote, was that "psychiatric front groups" had been using political influence to prevent people from doing business with them. Not only that, but Hubbard alleged that political influence had been used to pass legislature that would allow people to be taken into custody, tortured and killed. Summing up the evidence, Hubbard wrote:

Thus the Western countries are seen to refuse actual treatment and legalize inhuman torture and brutality.

In view of the evidence, he then concluded:

Psychiatric treatment is actually psychiatric political treatment, nothing more, to rid the world of anyone who might disagree.

Hubbard emphasized the above by writing that the insane were defined as those who disagreed with the "social autonomy." He then explained further why he called psychiatric treatment "political" treatment in that "Only the government supports psychiatry."

Properly labeling political treatment for what it was, Hubbard wrote, should bring an end to any misunderstanding there may have been on the topic.

Extracts from an LRH Communication

This is put forth as a collection of quotes from L. Ron Hubbard. The following links the press, preconceived notions, and the enemy:

This is a special web version which is slightly edited so that

'The enemy is stuck in a situation estimate that is probably circa 1958 and has never improved. He's working on a preconceived campaign 12 years out of date. He doesn't get Intelligence, his info centre isn't getting any data - they are probably running on press clippings. ....

More on the nature of the opposition:

'He substitutes his desire for the fact of it.

'It is a totally failed campaign which is twisting in his hand. All he has done is give us international publicity. ....

The following makes an example out of the press in an allegedly fool-proof system:

'We started telling them to investigate newspaper reporters who wrote against us - a lot of them bribed, freelancers bought, a lot of officials on this line. Had to figure out how to hurt these guys and still stay legal. They have a vulnerability already worked - several guys have lost their jobs over this. How could they be hurt - all you have to do is spot it, figure out how to cost them their jobs and make them lose it.

Referring to the opposition:

'They are in the business of destroying our reputation over the world...

Hubbard recognized the value in changing tactics.

'He is just a plain ordinary garden variety sitting duck. He can be hit by any changed tactic without ever knowing that it has been changed. Note how often I change my tactics.

The following may refer to Hubbard's principle of constant attack. "Freedom" is the name of one of his client's magazines.

'Freedom went back on defense - staged events of defense and didn't get a line of press.

'There is a misdefinition of attack. They'll lose ground if they don't watch it. These events were not covered by the press because they were defensive. It was a bit of a lose. They should be very offensive at this moment. The defensive staged event didn't get covered by the press so they covered it themselves.

The words "staged event" may indicate that the above is an informal communication.

This letter also gives a collection of quotes from Mary Sue Hubbard, wife of L. Ron Hubbard.

At this time she was in charge of Hubbard's "Guardian Office," a client of Hubbard's that used his policies. She recognized the value of attack in the following manner:

'The Guardian's Office can put the vector of attack any way they want, just by attacking.

In keeping with the policies on using the media, she wrote, presumably about her husband:

'He had always known that the Intelligence Service of Genghis Khan and the Communist Intelligence Service had a little in common - now he sees they are the same. Genghis Khan sent out people in advance of his armies to spread fear and to build a reputation of invincibility. This is exactly what the Russians are doing now. Their agents are all over the US spreading the same tale.

Mary Sue Hubbard gave an example of the application of policy as follows:

'Does Mo receive a great deal of clippings on psychiatry which you can use attacking? I find that one can get the best of attacks going by using their own material back at them. Their books, articles, news releases - are frequently and most cases 100% usuable. [sic]

HCO Bulletin of 16 July 1970
The Psychiatrist at work

Hubbard presented statements about psychiatrists to his client for information purposes. He wrote of his information,

All these statements are the subjects of total documentation in the hands of Scientology.

In explaining psychiatry, Hubbard wrote about "Pain Association." Pain was produced in people, he wrote, so that they would not have "wrong ideas" and that they would be prevented from performing undesirable actions. To illustrate his point, he said that one cure for cigarette smoking was to apply electric shock. This would associate pain with the urge to smoke. In this manner, Hubbard wrote, homosexuals were also "treated.". He also wrote that alcoholics were "cured" by putting poison in their drinks so that they would become sick. This line of thought, Hubbard wrote, was the essence of all psychiatric treatment. Drugs fit into this explanation as follows:

Another version of it is drugs. Make the person too torpid (sluggish) to have any ideas.

The result of using pain and drugs in the above manner, Hubbard wrote, was to make people obsessed with those things they were being treated for. This caused frustration that was, he said, "a form of insanity." He then explained insanity and psychiatry's role in it as follows:

Must reach can't reach, must withdraw can't withdraw is total basic insanity.
Thus psychiatry is making insane people.

The above, Hubbard wrote, explained why there was an increase in insanity and crime.

Hubbard contrasted his client's treatment with "psychiatry's" treatment by saying psychiatry used "destructive technology."

Under the heading of "Masters" it was alleged that certain groups, such as the World Federation of Mental Health, were behind psychiatry, and that these groups had direct connections to Russia. Hubbard relied upon the media to support his assertion as follows:

Even the British Broadcasting Company has stated that psychiatry and the KGB (Russian Secret Police) operate in direct collusion. ...

Re: Books & Entheta Written About Scientology by SPs

"Entheta" is a word coined by Hubbard. It is used by Jane Kember in this information letter to mean "producing a negative impression."

In the UK, the following legal actions have been done on entheta books which have written about Scientology.

1. Satans Slaves - this was a book about Charles Manson and hippie cults in California. In several places, throughout the book, Charles Manson was mentioned as a former Scientologists (untrue) and it was alleged that he got his start with Scientology etc. ...

They also agreed to make an apology in open court and to discontinue publication and sales of the book.

2. A psychologist by the name of Dr. Christopher Evans was writing a book entitled "20th Century Cults". Legal started writing to him and hit publishers and later his lawyers. No proceedings were started because the book had not been published. ....

Finally the publishers [sic] lawyers wrote to us to say that there was no point in continuing the correspondence because the publishers had now decided not to publish the book. As of this date, the book has not been published.

3. C. H. Rolph, (small time author and journalist), was commissioned by the NAMH U.K. to write a book on the subject of the NAMH conflict with Scientology, from their viewpoint ....

Legal wrote to him and his lawyers, and pointed out that publication would be a contempt of court (because of other legal actions which we have against the NAMH). The book has not been published.

4. "Scientology, what it is - what it does" by Rev. Norris Burrell was the first book published in the UK, solely on the subject of Scientology. Burrell had been in comm[unication] with PRO and a long series of letters had passed between them. But once again, the book when published turned out to be hostile. ....

So, legal took them to Court, and the Judge found that the book was a contempt of court. So the book was withdrawn from publication without any copies having been sold to the public.

5. The latest book is by Cyril Vosper called "The Mindbenders", a stupid bit of natter*. A preview of the book was sent out by the publishers, and PRO was alerted by a phone call from a TV station, who wanted a confrontation on TV with Cyril Vosper. This gave the G.O. 24 hours to stop the book, the TV confrontation and attendant bad publicity.

*criticism from people who have committed misdeeds

.... The injunction was Ex parte (the other side was not present when it was obtained) and 3 weeks later legal went before the Court again for a contested hearing, to see whether the injunction should be continued or not. Legal won on both counts of copyright and breach of confidence. The other side now have 14 days in which to appeal.

The point of relating these actions is to indicate that the following countries have similar laws to Britain:

New Zealand
South Africa

There is no acceptable justification in these countries for no action being taken against the publishers or authors of entheta Books. The G.O. has to act fast, effectively and with imagination. The skill required is in

1) Having the brains to see a possible course of action, no matter how unlikely. .....

5) Do not worry about whether you will win or lose, but direct all effort and concentration on the legal technicalities required to achieve a legal confrontation. ....


However, where U.S. legal has been successful is prior to Court appearances and actual trial in effecting settlement.

The button used in effecting settlement is purely financial. In other words, it is more costly to continue the legal action than to settle in some fashion. Using this, legal U.S. usually moves for retraction of the libel and/or publication of a correction or Scientology viewpoint.

Therefore, it is imperative that legal US Dev-T* his opponents and their lawyers with correspondence ( lawyer's letter costs approx $50), phone calls (time costs), interrogatories, depositions and whatever else legal can mock up.

*Developed Traffic, swamp with busy work

One of the bright spots of US legal is that even if you lose you don't pay your opponent for his lawyers fees. ....

N.B. Any legal action on entheta publications needs the close coordination of PR, Legal and B4. One should carry forward without being afraid of being labeled Litigious. We want the reputation that we use the laws of the Country to uphold our legal and civil rights.



The message is that in combatting [sic] entheta articles and books, legal should be aggressive, fast, persistent and untiring.

Every skirmish should be treated like a major battle

Observations on the Great Health Monopoly

Hubbard described the path a group takes to become a monopoly in this letter. He wrote that the group attempting to gain a monopoly did so by "eliminating rivals, potential rivals and those they think are or might become rivals." In doing so, he wrote it was not necessary to have either a product or a subject, but a field. He described the role of government in the operation:

Using various means - black PR, capital, media control, real or false promises and other means - they come to a position where they are big enough to invite or use or suborne government co-operation.

Government would then play a progressively larger role until, eventually, the monopoly was maintained "at tax payer expense." The reasons which were invented so that this might happen could vary, but they would follow the line of "public necessity."

Reason the current health monopoly would fail, given by Hubbard, included "not delivering health" and not being "admired by the public." He wrote of the perceived monopoly,

Its pretense of 'public necessity' can be exploded.

An example of how this could be obtained was given as follows:.

Once TV stations thought they owned the air. A concerted grass roots section has all but destroyed these fancied rights. The hole that was attacked was Federal Licensing renewal.

The details of how that action had come about were presented as follows:

Ref. of successful action: United Church of Christ vs Jackson, Miss station of WLBT-TV via FCC and Wash. DC Court of Appeals. Everett Parker, director of OFFICE OF COMMUNICATIONS of the UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST assisted by Earl K (Dick) Moore, a Wall Street attorney, forced a new licensee to be found for WLBT-TV. It was giving black PR to civil rights. The FCC did not co-operate with the Church but was forced to by the courts. This broke down the whole chain or "permanent licensing" by negating automatic renewal. Other groups have brought other stations to heel. TV now plays it very carefully. It no longer black PRs*. So a small group can force a monopoly (of a channel) breakage.

*uses black, or negative, public relations

Hubbard commented that a similar weakness had to exist in the field of health, and presented reasons for its disintegration as follows:

Until this Monopoly is cowed and disintegrated, there will be no health for this planet, no end of its crime and no chance for those it fancies, no matter how mistakenly, stand in its road.

Hubbard wrote that, after studying the situation, it was apparent to him that his course of action had "the best long range chance of survival."

Dear Mary Sue,
Re: Energy Crisis

Large oil companies and their national governments suppressed the oil producing nations by using them as suppliers only, not as refiners of oil. (Pg. 32)

Standard Oil Company has had a world monopoly on the transportation, refining and marketing of oil. (Pg. 33, 1)

In the 70's the major production of crude oil switched to the Near East. (Pg. 33, 2)

Before WW II the US produced 2/3's of the world's oil; now it is only about 20%. (Pg. 33, 3)

Rather than spend money looking for new oil fields, the international oil companies decided to increase production of oil in the Near East. ....

Codes and Coding, Correct Practice, Policy

Common errors in using code are:

a. Recipient does not have the code being used. ....

d. Use of code words next to words which expose them at once: i.e. "The Dubloo sank" is easily seen to mean "The ship sank" and anyone intercepting the message now knows that whenever "Dubloo" is used it means ship. After a lot of messages he has your whole code. ....

f. Letting codes remain in force too long as this gives an interceptor the volume of traffic he needs to break the code.

g. Leaving a code around so it can be seen or letting a copy of the code be exposed and then not alerting anyone that the code has been "compromised" (which is to say exposed so it is no longer valid for use), and then going on using it! ....

There are quite a few books and booklets on the subject of Codes and Ciphers. These are not hard to obtain. The better ones include glossaries of terms in common use. They are not hard to read and are even entertaining. They give the general backbone of the subject.

There are only two types of methods of obscuring meaning in a message. One of these is SUBSTITUTION, the other is TRANSPOSITION.

Putting a letter or number or word down to stand for another letter or number or word is called SUBSTITUTION.

Mixing up the sequence of letters, numbers or words is called TRANSPOSITION.

A CODE is generally an arbitrary list of words that stand for words actually meant. ....

PLAIN TEXT means the message in clear without code or cipher. ....


The ideal code or cipher would be one which was easy to encode, easy to decode, which shortened the message, hid its meaning to anyone else and was not in writing and so could not be seized. Almost all codes or ciphers depart from the ideal in one respect or another. ....

The transmission channel itself may be hidden such as invisible ink like lemon juice which goes brown on heating, such as writing the messages on a person's head who has been shaved and then letting his hair grow, like writing on eggs, like putting encoded ads in the paper, like putting the message in a secret "drop", etc. ....

The mighty supermen of Germany, the brainiest race in the world according to archeologists who have studied the remains of their civilization, lost TWO world wars by being stupid fools about their codes and supposing that because they were so brilliant the codes were brilliant and would never be cracked. England had the German code-books almost the entire duration of both wars and cracked their messages at will ....

One probably could not get big enough a number to count the people who have died because codes and ciphers, thought secure, were broken or exposed throughout history.

And almost every such instance was because someone trusted with or using codes or someone supposed to invent them and safeguard them made corny errors such as those list [sic] a-g above. ....

Intelligence Actions

An Intelligence Officer, gives summaries. Never estimates of the situation. [sic]

Intelligence should give facts and reports. DATA is what is needed. ....

Suppression occurs when genernlities [sic] are entered into reports. Evaluations are generalities.

Forwarding of false information is a very high crime. Failure to forward information is an equally high crime. ....

The Standard actions of intelligence are:

1. Predict the trouble before it occurs by filing, cross indexing, investigation of areas, statistics and other means.

2. Investigate for crimes, the individuals who are creating trouble.

3. Prosecute.

This is standard, 1 2 3 action and should not be deviated from. The maxim is .. "when under attack .. attack". The point is .. even if you don't have enough data to with the case . still attack .. LOUDLY. Reason is, it is only those people that have crimes that will attack us, and they will soon back off for fear of being found out when attacked back.

Filing is a very important action in intelligence. You file by name and area. If you get a report that has 10 names on it .. 10 copies are made and a copy placed in each file. Areas can be kept by country, state, town etc., depending on how large an intelligence unit you are handling. ....

The lowly and neglected item called FILES is the cause of more company downfalls than desks and quarters and sometimes even personnel.

Because files are looked upon as routine clerical work they seldom are given enough attention by executives. Yet the downfall of most executives is lack of information and FILES. ....

Half to two-thirds of an org's income comes from having a well kept Central Files and Address and FSM files and a lot of credit rating and correct payment comes from bills files. P/L and HCOB files almost totally monitor training and processing and admin quality.


Files personnel HAVE TO KNOW THEIR ALPHABET FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS LIKE LIGHTENING. This is the biggest cause of slow or misfiling. ....

An org without files has no memory. ....

Files Accuracy

As Files are the vital operational line it is of the GREATEST IMPORTANCE that ALL FILING IS ACCURATE.

A misfiled particle can be lost forever. ....

1. ALL FILES PERSONNEL (a) MUST BE ABLE TO RATTLE OFF THE ALPHABET FORWARDS AND BACKWARDS. (b) They must be drilled then to be able to give the letter ahead of and behind each letter in the alphabet.

2. GEOGRAPHY must be known to files personnel, particularly the locations of orgs, cities, states and continents. This is done by drilling them on a map that has key locations related to files. ....

Anyone finding a mis-filed particle should report it to the Ethics Officer or Master at Arms.

He must then quickly make every effort to locate who is misfiling and take rapid action. ....

It is of vital interest both in ease of work and financially that all files are straight.

There are currently 23 piles of backlog. 5 larger piles are entirely newspaper clippings. 9 of the piles are 30% - 50% clippings. 2 of the piles are 10% clippings. 2 piles have no clippings. The remaining piles are uninspected but by label would be 50%, 50%, 20%, 50% clippings, e.g. by averages of piles only, 53% is clippings including traffic on route to files. Clippings were found for crossfiling under general subjects, names, areas, etc. etc. ...

The clippings of newspapers and the handling of clippings have been given equal importance to collecting Intelligence data and cross filing the data.

Locate all piles of subject clippings older than 1 year and all piles of unmoving newspapers and burn them as a demonstration for Bureau IV staff.

Indicate the why and demonstrate it graphically, then get the correct policies in and reduced the flow of clippings.

Description of CIC WW Filing System

As Bureau I CIC WW is presently converting over to micro-film, it is important that all Guardian Office Information Bureaus are aware of the type of filing systems used at World Wide and also are aware of the standards required in reports sent to World Wide. ....

The filing system is divided into 8 categories:

1. Doubt *
2. Traitor *
3. Enemy *
4. General Area
5. General International
6. Enemy International
7. Intell
8. Newspaper Files

(* Does not refer to the Conditions)

1. DOUBT: A non treacherous Scientologist who comes up in an intell report. These files are used a lot by Branch II. ....

2. TRAITOR: An ex-Scientologist who has gone to the press or police or to court, or in some way attacked us or harmed Scientology. ....

3. ENEMY: An exterior suppressive or his connections, i.e. any person, group, organisation, company, government department etc. mentioned in an intell report who does not fit into category (1) or (2) above. ....

(Note: If a person is temporarily residing in a country - e.g. an Ambassador - a dummy file is made for the country he is in temporarily and his true file is kept in his home country.)

4. GENERAL AREA: This consists of files of subjects (not people or organizations) of interest to Scientology such as Aversion Therapy, Brain Surgery, Crime, Drugs, Involuntary Institutionalization, Mental Heath Acts, Psychiatry, Shock Treatment, etc. and are divided into countries alphabetically, and then the different subject files are arranged alphabetically within each country.

5. GENERAL INFORMATION: This consists of subjects of interest which are covered from an international viewpoint, e.g. Banking, Communism, Euthanasia, Finance, Intelligence, Mental Health, Press, Psychiatry, Psychology, etc. ....

6. ENEMY INTERNATIONAL: As for category (3) above, except that this section is for international organizations such as Amnesty International, European League for Human Rights, International Monetary Fund, Caribbean Federation for Mental Health, United Nations, World Council of Churches, WFMH, World Psychiatric Association etc. ....

7. INTELL: These are divided into 2 sections: The first section consists of files of reports, information, etc. received from individuals who are not staff members but who do part time work for the Bureau or who volunteer information etc. on a casual basis. The section is for each Guardian Office around the planet and contain the Branch I and Branch II weekly reports and reports concerning Bureau management etc. Those two sections are, of course, each arranged alphabetically.

8. NEWSPAPER FILES: Those contain in date order the mounted Scientology clippings, originals where possible, and are filed alphabetically under the name of the newspaper/magazine - having first been divided into countries alphabetically of course.


The "special bank" files are in addition to the main files described above, and are done as per 60 507 Intelligence Estimations and Predictions. ....

Due to mis-spelling or "guesses" of names, the data may become completely lost. We have no way of telling correct spelling of names from incorrect, except as they come to us on the reports, and all too often, we find one person has more than one file because the reports were sent in with the name mis-spelled or mis-duplicated by the person writing the report.

Reminder line

Because of the amount of traffic that passes by on the executives line daily, and because of difficulties caused in filing, a reminder line is to be used after names mentioned in reports. The reminder line works as follows:

A report is sent to WW and in it, it states: "Joe came into the org again today and we discussed the same thing we met over last week." To the person writing the report this may make total sense but to the persons at WW reading it, the following questions may arise. First, who is Joe, and second, what is talked about? The fact that a report was sent to WW the week before makes no difference as WW Info Bureau handles hundreds of such reports a day. Also even if the executive reading the report did remember the scene, the staff in CIC probably wouldn't

So, to help orient the people reading the report to the scene and to aid CIC in getting the data correctly and quickly into the files, the reminder line is to be added. Thus the report goes like this: "Joe M. Blow, the reporter from the "Whatever Tribune", came in again this week and he still wants to do the article on Scientology, etc." ....

In other words, you have now familiarized the person reading the report with the scene so that he doesn't have to look for further data ....

[hand-written] LRH COMM W.US
Despatch from LRH
Received at Saint Hill
Secret Telex Cable & Radio Code ....

It has come to attention [sic] that telex, cable and radio telephone lines are not secure and that passing too informative data on them could place data in areas which could injure us.

Therefore it is best that on any subject where we may be too revealing on telex, cable or radio telephone lines we must do one of the two things:

(a) Use despatches only. (b) Use a code.

Despatches (a) has the disadvantage of lack of speed over distances. Yet they have the advantage of greater clarity and potential length.

Codes (b) have the disadvantage of being obscure sometimes, even to those with the key. They have the advantage, however, of great speed and penetration through insecure lines.

Message Security ....

So all the line security in the world is defeated if FILE security is violated. If you can't file securely, burn a confidential message as soon as read.

Attitude ....

Sometimes the sender knows why the secret must not be revealed and the receiver does not and so fails to keep it.

When you have had the close calls I have had in intelligence through security failures you begin to believe there is something on the subject. I was once in 1940 ordered out on a secret mission by the U.S. to a hostile foreign land with whom we were not yet at war. It was vital to mask my purpose there. It would have been fatal had I been known to have been a naval officer. On a hunch I didn't leave at once and the following day the U.S. sent a letter to me that had I left would have been forwarded to me in that land, addressing me with full rank and title, informing me to wear white cap covers after April 15th in Washington. Had I departed, that letter, following me, would have sentenced me to death before a firing squad! ....

You could wreck our credit or a mission by using open language on some subjects. These are only a few. Therefore it is easy to keep security on them. ....

All codes requiring a complex code book on both ends of the line are patience trying (as one tries to look it all up) and often scramble in transmission.

Therefore we will use a "code" system which isn't liable to be broken by professionals and which won't slow us down. It's only real disadvantage is that it can be obscure to us too at times and so requires (a) cleverness and (b) a follow up by a despatch on guarded lines that clarifies it when possible. ....

FINANCE = Flower business, botanical specimens, especially shipping them around.

GOLD = Real Estate Business, offers and sales with clients located at the correct destinations and departure points. ....

CALL AND REPLY FOR A COURIER = QUERIES ABOUT CARS (call) and data about available cars (reply), sale or rental.


URGENT HELP NEEDED PLEASE ACT = Reassurance messages with people in the place help is required sending love.

HELP ON THE WAY = Sad announcements saying where and when burial will occur.

INTELLIGENCE REQUEST AND REPORT = Request for ship, machine, building or land survey and report thereon.

The above subjects are also used on radio telephones and where phone lines may be tapped. ....

As you will notice with one or two exceptions the message text is about what flows on usual cable lines and are ordinary expected traffic.

That WE use such businesses may or may not cause surprise. But it makes the text obscure.

The key is to be ordinary and NEVER step out of character in writing the text. Always be as plausible as possible.

And whenever it is possible to do so get the real state of affairs over by secure lines after using open lines in code to speed things up.

It is my specific intention that by the use of professional PR tactics any opposition be not only dulled but permanently eradicated. This takes data and planning before positive action can occur. (LRH)

Never let entheta pass unhandled. Prevention is better than cure. Handle fast, handle with live communication, handle with documentation, use PR technology including tone scale evaluation. Liaise with your senior and the other divisions/bureaux. Maintain ethics presence and see the matter through to a completion including the discrediting of the attacker.

Experience has shown that defence is only effective when one sorties or attacks.

The errors we have made have been:

1. Defending only.

2. Defending on Scientology ground.

3. Being reasonable and assigning mild motives to the enemy.

4. Failing to attack early and hard.

5. Undervaluing the broad social value of Scientology.

6. Individuating from other similar organizations.

7. Not learning enemy tactics and using and bettering them.

8. Failing to heavily contest for public opinion and public media.

9. Failing to identify the enemy early and hit him hard. (LRH)


The technique of proving utterances false is called "DEAD AGENTING". It's in the first book of Chinese espionage. When the enemy agent gives false data, those who believed him but now find it false kill him - or at least cease to believe him.

So the PR slang for it is "Dead Agenting."

This consists of disproving utterly the false statement with documents or demonstration or display.

One has to have a kit (a collection of documents) or the ability to demonstrate or something to display.

STATEMENT: "I've been told you are in trouble with Income Tax people."

REBUTTAL: "Here's a document of fully paid taxes and a letter of commendation from the tax authorities." Displays same.

Result? Whoever told him that is now dead with him as an accurate informer.

The best way to dead agent is when the person makes some disprovable statement, find WHO to fix his mind on it and then produce the rebuttal.

STATEMENT: "I hear you aren't married to the man you're living with."

REBUTTAL: "WHO told you that?"

STATER: "I forget."

REBUTTER: "Well, you remember and I'll show you some proof."

STATER: "Well, it was a man..."


STATER: "Joe Schmo."

REBUTTER: "Okay. Here's my marriage certificate. Who's the Joe Schmo nut anyway?"

Now it's Joe Schmo who's the mystery. How come he lies? What's in it for him?

When one hasn't got the document but can get it one can say "You tell me the name of whoever said that and next time I see you I'll show you something very interesting about it."

And be sure to get the document and see him again.

Dead agenting has a billion variations. "It won't fly." Fly it. "Place is empty." Show him it's full.

The subject matter of Dead Agenting is PROOF in whatever form.

You only challenge statements you can prove are false and in any conversation let the rest slide.



In defending against hostile PR, once more it is in the R that counts. Sun Tzu in his book about warfare gives several types of agent. One of these is the "dead agent" because he tells lies to the enemy and when they find out they will kill him.

Hostile (or counter-PR) is usually the usual fabric of lies.

If one finds out the lies being told and documents just one as being false, he has made counter-PR recoil. His hearer will never believe him again. He's 'dead'.

In the war between psychiatric hostile PR and the truth of Scientology, the "dead agent" caper has a field day. Psychiatric PR has been lying for 20 years. Documented, the fact of these lies are lies is killing off psychiatry.

You understand, it's not one PR's word against another's. It's one PR's documents against the other PR's lies! That is correct defensive PR. (LRH)


The quality of the documentation is a major factor. The PRO should have the right to chit and demand better quality documentation if it's not up to standard. One should be very inventive and very creative in the presentation of his pack. As the false reports on us are generally repeated over and over and over again in different ways one can have in stock, so to speak, false report correction packs and booklets. One of these could be the Background and Ceremonies of the Church, a WW publication. There are various bona fide publications for different countries. There is Scientology 20th Century Religion, there is the publication Viewpoint from the US and we now have Omar Garrison's Hidden Story of Scientology. Then there are things like the quote from the Encyclopedia Britannica Year Book, etc.


This is correct procedure:

1. Spot who is attacking us.

2. Start investigating them promptly for FELONIES or worse using our own professionals, not outside agencies.

3. Double curve our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them.

4. Start feeding lurid, blood sex crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press. (LRH)


Also press releases should always contain some factor of endurance. This gives the public the idea that we endure. Examples:

"For many years now we have stated..."

"We have stood up to such attacks many times and are still surviving and expanding."

"Since 1950 we have..."

"Eighteen years ago..."

ALWAYS ATTACK in a press release. Never Defend or Deny. (LRH)


Reporters are a kiss of death unless one really is an expert PR man himself. Reporters have to be handled and well. If truly friendly, they have to be wooed. If not they have to be handled. The routine is (1) Whisper of a bad story (2) Get a lawyer (3) Threaten suit (4) Totally discredit using the technique of the Dead Agent caper which MUST be understood in full. It consists of photostats of good stories and authentic documents that state the truth and thus wreck any lies and the liar. "Dead agent" means when they find out the guy lied (proven by documents) he's dead. The kit of the PRO MUST contain a full set of such documents, adequate to cancel out any lies told.

And it must be fast. It must come to an immediate confrontation. (LRH)


The actual handling is very swift. You can make the offending person the butt of your wit, handle seriously, take him over the hills and far away conversationally, but it has to be swift and smooth with one person in control.

As soon as you get some entheta about us, you immediately jump on the person and ask who else has he been saying that to, getting all the names. Ask for the person's credentials, where he comes from, who sent him - give him a hard time of it. (LRH)


We endeavor to hit from as many directions as possible. For example, a reporter was conducting a one-man crusade against Scientology in his newspaper. PR handled by having formal complaints made on the conduct of the reporter to his newspaper, the Press Council and the police with full documentation as to the lies he told and actions which he had taken, including threats and attempted blackmail by him. A full submission was presented giving six or seven pounds weight of PR data from the Church of Scientology on itself, its social reforms, its view on psychiatry, etc. This data was indexed and bound so that it looked something of value. The pack was left with a high official and other officials were informed that full submissions had been left there and if they needed information he would be able to supply it. The Press Council ended up investigating the reporter and the stomach has gone out of his crusade.


False reports are corrected by true facts. You do whatever you have to do to get the true facts communicated and published. Documentation is the biggest aid in doing this. Communicating corrections obtained from other media helps build ethics presence and makes for a careful press and media.


When an entheta story with false reports has been published it must be handled fast by telephone call, by personal visit, and always by letter confirming. The PR needs documentation which refutes and he needs it available to show or to give to the media. It is an obliteration tactic.

For example, a newspaper publishes its third entheta article. Legal plays a hard line and PR plays the part of the peacemaker until a retraction and legal settlement is made. Documentation is then sent to all press, the Press Council and journalists and individual reporters. The documentation has a plea for reform and clean up of ethical standards. The result: the reporter in question will no longer be on staff.


Every correction you obtain comes as something you can use. It is "beans"; there is an exchange now because you can use that in your prevention.

A common error in the actual tech of false report correction is contained in repeating the original entheta in our published correction of it. By that we give the enemy two cracks. This is very easily avoided by simply doing an item fact correction sheet and making it clear that it is not for publication, accompanying it with the thing which is for publication or promising the thing for publication to follow.

Time is always of the essence. The longer an entheta piece is permitted to persist the more difficult the correction becomes, the more damage is done by it and the more likely it is to be quoted by another.


Research and experience has shown that there are various factors which contribute to successfully obtaining equal space in the media. The major factors are:

1. Speed of handling.

2. Duplication of the nature of the media or person(s) one is approaching.

3. Personal, live communication.

4. Full documentation and correction of facts in previous article.

5. Correct tone level evaluation and handling of media terminals.

6. Previous theta articles on Scientology.

7. Intention.


Yes, one says, but how about the violent opposition? How about that fellow?

Well, he's a problem. But he is an opinion leader.

One has to decide how much of an opinion leader he is.

If you don't handle a would-be opinion leader who is anti but who is NOT an opinion leader, people get cross.

The decision here stems from

a. Is he talking about actual abuses? or

b. Is he just lying?

In either case one has certain courses of action. If the abuses are actual, work to remedy them. If he is just lying, lay out the truth. If he really isn't an opinion leader, ignore him.

But one can only interfere with him or remove him if many, many are getting cross because you don't. But that's a risky business.

As a rule, only that dissident person should be removed who is speaking in your name and on your lines and using your power to do you down. And then he can only be removed off your lines as you are under no obligation to finance or empower your own opposition. That's suicide. He is not an opinion leader but a traitor for he owes his power to you.

Usually anti-opinion leaders are made by neglect.

PR-wise one has to catch them early and handle. (LRH)


One propagandizes the enemy population or one's own or neutrals.

In popular interpretation it is a parade of lies or half-truths or exaggerations.

PR and advertising technology and mass news media are employed as well as word-of-mouth and posters.

The trouble with it is that it can often be disproven, discrediting the utterers of it.

It may serve the moment but after a war it leaves a very bad taste.

If one is engaging on a campaign of this nature, its success depends on sticking to the truth and being able to document it.

The entire black propaganda campaign conducted for 21 years against Scientology began to fold up in its 18th year because never at any time did its instigators (a) have any factual adverse data or (b) tell the truth.

The Scientology movement continued if only by heroic means and much sacrifice.

But at last nobody of any note believed the propaganda.

The attackers pulled in on themselves a counterattack based on penetrating horrible documented truth.

It required intelligence-like tactics to discover who it was exactly.

The "dead agent caper" was used to disprove the lies. This consisted of counter-documenting any area where the lies were circulated. The lie "they were ___" is countered by a document showing "they were not". This causes the source of the lie and any other statements from that source to be discarded. (LRH)


The technique is:

A hidden source injects lies and derogatory data into public view.

Since it is a hidden source, it requires an intelligence approach to successfully end it.

In the meanwhile the "dead agent caper" is the best tool to counter it. (LRH)


A good policy when faced with a Black Propaganda campaign is to defend as best you can (dead agent and legal restraints) while you find out (intelligence) WHO is doing it. Then, confrontation can occur. Finding and suing false whos can make things much more involved. (LRH)


When one is not fighting a battle against Black Propaganda, public relations is easy.

One hires a reporter who gets to work thinking up ideas and turning out releases. That's why reporters are often thought of as Public Relations people which they are not.

In the face of a Black Propaganda Campaign, such releases are twisted, refused and that is the end of it.

There is far more to the art than this.

These are some of the rules that apply:

1. Fill the vacuum of omitted data with factual data.

2. Prove all false utterances heard are lies.

3. Discredit every rumor encountered.

4. Handle the interest level with any utterance.

5. Carefully study out the scene until the exact source is located.

6. Use the knowledge of source to impede or destroy the source of Black Propaganda by non-criminal means.

7. Continue to fill the vacuum of no data with good data using any channels available.

Each one of these points could well take a book. But understanding them and using one's initiative one can fill in a lot of the tech himself.

The variations of each one are endless. (LRH)


If there will be a long-term threat, you are to immediately evaluate and originate a black PR campaign to destroy the person's repute and to discredit them so thoroughly that they will be ostracized. (LRH)


In other words, handle the hell out of it. (LRH)


PR isn't "being nice." It is a dynamic subject. (LRH)

The following is listed in a section entitled "strategy," yet its title indicates that it refers to tactics. In any case it gives the reader a direct connection that Hubbard made between press and war.

This is a special web version which is slightly edited so that




(This is a Defense Paper on material developed after 18 years ceaseless attack by a foreign enemy. Nothing in this paper advocates violence or invites the physical destruction of persons.)

In these days of "cold war" when actual warfare is impossible due to atomic weapons, the warfare is waged in the press and public in the [missing word] of ideas.

This is a special web version which is slightly edited so that

The enemy uses "groups" and meetings of groups like one would use squads.

If we and they are considered as two hostile and opposing nations at war, then a huge array of tactics and strategy become visible.

One parallels in the field of thought what is used and done in the field of battle in other ages.

You don't have to know too much about the tactics and strategy of warfare to apply this but it helps.

The end product of war, according to Klausewitz the authority on it, is (condensed) "to bring about a more amenable frame of mind on the part of the enemy".

But there are also wars of attrition. We are engaged in one where total destruction of us has been the enemy's aim for, at this writing, 19 years. This is barbarian warfare, thus the enemy must have had very positive fears and terrors about us. Since he fought for total attrition. In this case it is not safe to hope for any half way win. We must ourselves fight on a basis of total attrition of the enemy. So never get reasonable about him. Just go all the way in and obliterate him.

It is bad warfare to fight battles on your own terrain, in your own subject area. It is not good to fight in the territory of allies. Fight battles wherever possible only on enemy terrain, in and about his subject and his people not ours. You can gauge your relative success by this. When all your battles are fought on his terrain, you are winning.

A good general expends the maximum of enemy troops and the minimum of his own. He makes the war costly to the enemy, not to himself.

One cuts off enemy communications, funds, connections. He deprives the enemy of political advantages, connections and power. He takes over enemy territory. He raids and harasses. All on a thought plane - press, public opinion, governments, etc.

Seeing it as a battle one can apply battle tactics to thought actions.

Intelligence identifies targets and finds out enemy plans and purposes, enemy connections, dispositions, etc. It is fatal to attack a wrong enemy. But it is good tactics to make the enemy attack wrong targets or persons himself.

Good intelligence pin points who when where what.

Good PRO plans an action and operations fights the battle.

Legal is a slow if often final battle arena. It eventually comes down to legal in the end. If intelligence and PRO have done well, then legal gets an easy win.

You can win a battle even without legal and my PRO alone. You intend to win it without legal wherever possible.

The price is "public opinion" where press is concerned. The only safe public opinion to head for is they love us and are in a frenzy of hate against the enemy, this means standard wartime propaganda is what one is doing, complete with atrocity, war crimes trials, the lot. Know the mores of your public opinion, what they hate. That's the enemy. What they love. That's you.

You preserve the image or increase it of your own troops and degrade the image of the enemy to beast level.

Always be ready to parley but watch for tricks. Don't give the enemy breathing space.

Capture and use his comm lines. A press magnate on your side is a big win.

You have in one of these publicity wars all the factors of modern wars complete with artillery, cavalry, infantry.

For example at this writing, all fighting has been on our terrain, they know our generals we didn't know theirs, they had all the press, funds, government control. We are reversing this. We are fighting now on their ground. But we have a long way to go .

We will make it all the way providing we look on this in terms of active battle and not as a "if we are saintly good we will win". The people who win wars have a saintly image but they win the war by clever and forceful use of the rules of tactics, strategy and battle.

Wars are composed of many battles.

Never treat a war like a skirmish. Treat all skirmishes like wars.

The cold war is a war. The West is losing it because it is fighting by other rules than the rules of war. We mustn't lose it.

The following "Working Theory" is probably meant to put Hubbard's policy followers into the proper state of mind needed to accomplish their sometimes difficult mission.


GO 060571 LRH 6 May 1971


This is a special web version which is slightly edited so that

So far we have been using an "Intelligence Hypothesis" I developed in 1965. Taking all channels of attack on us country by country, I found the cycle of attacking sources was (a) Income Tax (b) Health Dept or Agency (c) Immigration and (d) a type of press.

Moving this up to an International level, and trying to find out who could have that much influence the Intelligence Hypothesis I formed was that it would have to be a member of the World Bank with psychiatric connections or who planned usages of psychiatry as part of world control.

We used this to narrow and target our searches. It led us to WFMH and the NAMH. And it served us well. But it did not lead all the way until this year.

We found the central handler (one who orders operatives and operations) and proved it by numerous correspondences we were given. The track on this was started by a bit of flair (insight). And it has proved out absolutely. The person is "Mary Appleby" Secretary of the National Association of Mental Health of England. It is she who writes and phones her contacts to start attacks on Scientology.

Her uncle (just now deceased) was OTTO NIEMEYER of the World Bank.

So that finally ends off the 1965 Intelligence Hypothesis as totally correct.

It has gotten us this far.

But in getting there, new data has shown up.

Brilliant work in tracing the origins of the WFMH disclosed it and the NAMH to have NAZI origins. Goerings Cousin, Villinger, others were at the root of Naziism in Germany and brought Hitler to power! They started the death camps and they not Hitler ordered the extermination of Jews.

Racial purity, genes, Man is an animal, etc were originated (and still held to) by this psychiatric group.

In 1936 they dominated the Beers organization (NAMH).

In 1948, fleeing before war criminal hunts, these people formed the WFMH in London.

GO 060571 LRH -2-

We were fooled into thinking it was Communistic because they also penetrated Russia. Pavlov was one of them! (Trained at the University of Leipzig.)

We thought it went Russia to West. Actually that is because it went Nazi to Russia and Nazi to West. Both Russia and the West are internally dominated in the field of psychiatry by the original Nazis. So it could look as though it were coming in from Russia.

The third party between East and West could be the Neo- Nazi!

So we need a new working theory to extend what we now know.

The Nazi had three principle channels into the world.

1. Intelligence. Nazi intelligence was the largest and most effective intelligence organization the world ever knew. Many texts exist on this. After WW I they hid their files, brought them up to date about 1928 and brought Hitler to power. They had agents by the thousands in every nation - they set up Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and France to fall by penetration at the top. Hitler won those countries after they had been won by Intelligence. His force of arms was a disruption to intelligence take overs (geo-politics).

2. Drugs. The Germans had total domination of the world's drug industry. Their chemists and firms covered the globe. They even sought political extension by barganing [sic] new drug cures.

3. Psychiatry and Psychology. Leipzig is the source of the animal and reflex theories now believed and taught all over the world. Nazi racial purity, gene theories etc are taken from German psychiatry and psychology. German Psychiatrists gas chambered 300,000 insane before Hitler, originated the orders about Jews, etc. Hitler only okayed them. This kill- think is now in use in every country - gene theory - must sterilize and kill. Psychiatric atrocities now disclosed in England and elsewhere are Nazi practices. The death camp techniques used to exterminate masses were psychiatric.


Apparently there exists somewhere a Nazi Memorial or plan to conquer the world.

By intelligence infiltration of governments, drug addiction and dependency and using psychiatry to eliminate political undesirables and minorities, a group is bent on world political conquest.

When Nazi Germany was militarily defeated, the intelligence operatives and files were left "in place" in other countries, the Nazi Chemists were left in the seized drug firms abroad, the psychiatric "empire" still existed overseas.

At the defeat of Germany these three networks were not wiped out abroad but left them in place.

GO 060571 LRH -3-

Many military officers in allied services were financially well connected - related to bankers or were bankers.

These intelligence, drug personnel and psychiatric network files passed into financial hands.

The German Mark rose as the only strong European currency after WW II. West Germany now has most of the world's gold or at least large hoards of it.




We see that no one arrests psychiatry for murder, mayhem, fraudulent money collection. This could only be done by intelligence type control of government figures. Key positions worked in the German sector (as did Appleby and almost every other political person who attacked us in England). It follows this should be true in the US, Anzo, Spain, South Africa, etc - that our opponents have intelligence background either of their own country or Germany. These political mouthpieces have ex or current intelligence background. And as this is turning out to be a Fascist network, they have discoverable Fascist connections.

Psychiatric opponents are all part of the Nazi connected WFMH or NAMH. They are also, some of them, intelligence connected and many are German in name or origin. Their technology and what they urge is pure Fascism straight out Nazi death camps.

Drug firms are ex-German or German connected. They finance or support the Nazi networks. They also are turning the West to drug addiction.

Finance networks exist to crush other currencies and elevate the German currency and look to the other three networks to politically pave the way.


Now this is theory. There is much data to support it. We can document the earlier working theory. Appleby is a Nazi pure and simple. So is the WFMH and the NAMH as all they advocate is Nazi.

There is negative proof of political control by intelligence. Governments seem powerless to arrest or clean up mayhem, murder, theft, etc conducted by psychiatry.

German psychology is taught in every university. Even Dewey the "great American Educator" was indoctrinated at Leipzig.

Nazi policy and political tactics are beginning to show in the west.


GO 060571 -4-

Actually the networks are very frail, very prone to exposure.

If this Intelligence Hypothesis is true, it is of great use to us. For instance - head of FDA attacks us. Action - run back his Fascist background and connections.

We should test out this theory.

The attacks on Scientology are directed by Appleby.

We are attacked because if we proved psychiatry false by introducing a true mental science we would destroy their political terror weapon.

There are then four networks in all, as we must include International banking.

The four must be run from somewhere, possibly privately not governmentally from West Germany.

If this theory is true then every attacker has one or more of four connections. Intelligence, psychiatric, drug and banking.


To make even further headway on making a saner planet we should test out this new theory and see if it doesn't lead us to a new origin point for world distress. We may even be looking at the real 3rd party of East-West tension that gives us the threat of atomic war.

Needless to say, police usually side with Fascists and would tend to be blind to this theory. So it may very well be up to only us.

However Fascism is a very dirty word in the world and has many opponents.


The 1965 theory got us to the handler of attacks on in the UK and Commonwealth.

Let's see where this new theory gets us.

Keeping Scientology Working

This policy letter helps to answer the question of the perceived validity of Hubbard's technology.


Getting the correct technology applied consists of:

One: Having the correct technology;
Two: Knowing the technology.
Three: Knowing it is correct.
Four: Teaching correctly the correct technology.
Five: Applying the technology.
Six: Seeing that the technology is correctly applied.
Seven: Hammering out of existence incorrect technology.
Eight: Knocking out incorrect actions.
Nine: Closing the door on any possibility of incorrect technology.
Ten: Closing the door on incorrect application. ....

In all the years I have been engaged in research I have kept my comm lines wide open for research data. I once had the idea that a group could evolve the truth. A third of a Century has thoroughly disabused me of that idea. Willing as I was to accept suggestions and data, only a handful of suggestions (less than twenty) had long run value and none were major or basic; and when I did accept major or basic suggestions and used them, we went astray and I repented and eventually had to "eat crow."

On the other hand there have been thousands of suggestions and writings which, if accepted and acted upon, would have resulted in the complete destruction of all our work as well as the sanity of pcs. So I know what a group of people will do and how insane they will go in accepting unworkable "technology." By actual record the percentages are about twenty to 100,000 that a group of human beings will dream up bad technology to destroy good technology. [...] This point will, of course, be attacked as "unpopular," "egotistical" and "undemocratic." It very well may be. But it is also a survival point. And I don't see that popular measures, self-abnegation and democracy have done anything for Man but push him further into the mud. Currently, popularity endorses degraded novels, self-abnegation has filled the South East Asian jungles with stone idols and corpses, and democracy has given us inflation and income tax. ....

When somebody enrols, 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. ...

The whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depends on what you do here and now with and in Scientology. ...

HCO Policy Letter of 18 September 1967
Complexity and Confronting

This letter attributes an inability to confront a situation to complexity. It is included because it demonstrates an induced obscuration of over-significance. In other words, something might also seem complex because it is, but that thought is almost certainly overlooked in the theory presented.

In some researches I have been doing recently on the field of study, I have found what appears to be the basic law on complexity.

It is:


Reversing this:


To the degree that a being cannot confront he enters substitutes which, accumulating, bring about a complexity.

Issue II
New Definition of Psychosis

Hubbard redefined insane to mean people who would not obey orders. Presumably obeying an order is the equivalent of or similar to obeying these bulletins and policies.


That person who raves and screams at the very thought of receiving an order is of course completely insane.

That person who obsessively fights an organization that gives him clean instructions to help him is, of course, insane. ....

Look around you, look it over. The criminal will not receive the orders called the law. The psychotic will not receive the orders that bring real help.

That gives you a real weapon. ...

Want to know if they're crazy? Give them a simple order.

77. Volume 3 of 3; Section 5, Internal Security; Part A, General, item 4

HCO Bulletin of 28 November 1970

In this bulletin, Hubbard calculates the odds of being insane and reckons that they are in his favor. Hubbard earlier redefined insanity to mean those who would not follow orders. In this letter Hubbard stated that those people also have destructive intentions.

... Very possibly this is the first time the mechanisms which bring about insanity have been fully viewed. I must say that it requires a bit of confronting. ....

All characteristics classified as those of the "suppressive person" are in fact those of an insane person. ....

Insanity can now be precisely defined.

The definition is:


Man's mortality, his "one life" fixation, all stem from his efforts to check himself, obliterate his memory in a fruitless effort to change his conduct and his self-destructive habits and impulses and losses of skills and abilities.

As this rationale proves out completely in processing and fits all cases observed, we have for the first time proof of his actual nature.

As only around 20% are insane, and as those who previously worked in the mental field were themselves mainly insane, Man as a whole has been assigned an evil repute. Governments, where such personalities exist, listen to the opinion of the insane and apply the characteristic of 20% to the entire hundred percent.

This gives an 80% wrong diagnosis. Which is why mental science itself was destructive when used by states. ....

The APPARENT pattern of insane behaviour is to come in (ask for processing, go on staff etc.) with the advertised intention of being helped or helping, then mess up either as a pc or on post, then state how bad it all is and leave. It looks obvious enough. He came, found it bad, left.

That is only the APPARENT behaviour. APPARENT REASONS.

Based on numerous cases, this is the real cycle. Hearing of something good that might help these hateful awful nasty people, the psycho comes in, wrecks this, upsets that, caves in this one, chops up that one and WHEN SOMEBODY SAYS "NO!" the psychotic either

"Caves himself in physically" in the following sentence signifies "becomes ill."

(a) Caves himself in physically or (b) Runs away. ....

Artists, writers often have these types hanging around them as there is someone or something there to be destroyed. When success or failure to destroy or possible detection appears on the scene they blow, often as destructively as possible. ....

The insane can be helped. They are not hopeless.

I trust this data will be of use.

HCO Policy Letter of 22 March 1967
Urgent and Important ...

Personnel Requirement

Hubbard apparently believed in degrees of truth. This document provides for exceptions in his previous bulletin in which he said that people who do not follow orders were insane.

"Alter-is" in the following paragraph signified "unauthorized change."

It is only the negligence or alter-is or non-compliance on the part of certain persons of staff or in the professional employ of org (such as attorneys, accountants) that gets the org in trouble.

Such beings are uniformly degraded beings. They are at best pcs. They are not truly staff members or effective professionals.

The more degraded beings you employ or retain as professionals to "fill a post" or "need a lawyer" or for any other reason, the more the org will be at effect.

These are the people who get you and your org in trouble. ....

This is a different thing than a suppressive. A suppressive is seeking to destroy knowingly and gets no case gain.

"Degraded being" is a harsh term but a true one. It means a person who is at effect to such a degree that he or she avoids orders or instructions in any possible covert or overt way because orders of any kind are confused with painful indoctrinations in the past. ...

Further an org that goes mad on "process the whole staff" continually regardless of duties has a degraded being complex. ("Us poor equal thetans.")

In such an org the degraded beings outnumber the Big Being staff members. Such an org is not at cause over the environment but is a sort of mutual aid society or a self treating mental ward where the inmates use Scn to treat each other but are but [sic] dimly aware of the outer environment. ...

This appears to make another exception to the "suppressive person" rule.

This discovery proceeds from a two and a half year intense study of aberration as it affects the ability to function as a group member ...


Other-Determined   \ __  Robot band


Thus he must have orders to operate.

Therefore one could term such a person a robot. And the malady could be called robotism. ...

He does not see the environment around him. ....

Since he does not act upon orders he is taking responsibility for, he executes orders without fully understanding them. ....

The person is slow because he is moving on other determinism, is carefully withholding himself and cannot see anyway. ....

Threats and "heads on a pike" (meaning examples of discipline) do however jar the person into giving his attention and channeling his actions into a more desirable path from the group viewpoint. ...

Despite the viciousness of the truly insane, there is little or no real malice in the robot. ....

His danger mainly stems from the incompetent things he does, the time of others he consumes, the waste of time and material and the brakes he puts on the general group endeavor. ...

The robot gives many false reports. Unable to see, how can he know what is true? ...

Exhaustion only occurs when one does not understand the robot.

It is the exasperation that exhausts one. ...

Potential Trouble Sources are not necessarily robots.

A PTS person generally is withholding himself from a Suppressive Person or group or thing. ....

The basic why behind persons who cannot function, are slow or inactive or incompetent and who not produce is


Physical work in the physical universe, general confronting, reach and withdraw, and Objective Processes go far in remedying this condition. ...

The end product when one has fully handled robotism is not a person who cannot follow orders or who operates solely on his own. ...

Sex and Organizations

Hubbard was aware that sex could cause poor public relations.

It is interesting that a review of faltering orgs that got into trouble in their areas each one had a bad sex entanglement high on staff. ...

Sex, obsessive and promiscuous, is a blood brother of psychosis. Note the sex stress of Freud, the sex orgies in institutions between patients and attendants and psychiatrists. ...

The label of sexual promiscuity easily attaches to persons and is not always true. So be very thorough in the investigations and be sure the charges are factual. If so, shoot quick. Don't caution. Experience with such has taught me that no amount of persuasion or orders will (a) bring up their statistics or (b) stop the catastrophe they will walk into. Only prompt removal of the offenders will get the org going again.

HCO Bulletin of 15 December 1973
The Continuous Missed W/H and Continuous Overt with Data on Degraded Beings and False PTS Conditions

This is another exception to the "suppressive person" rule.


The Continuous Missed W/H

A Continuous Missed Withhold occurs when a person feels some way and anyone who sees him misses it.

Example: A doctor feels very unconfident of his skill. Every patient who sees him misses the fact that he is not confident.

This reacts as a missed withhold. ....

Probably all dishonest social conduct brings about a Continuous Missed Withhold. The politician who hates people, the minister who no longer believes in God, the mechanic who privately believes he is a jinx on machinery, these all then set up the phenomena of missed withholds on themselves and can dramatize it in their conduct.

The Continuous Overt

A person who believes he is harmful to others may also believe that many of his common ordinary actions are harmful.

He may feel he is committing a Continuous Overt on others.

Example: A clothing model believes she is committing a fraud on older women by displaying clothing to them in which they will look poorly. In her estimation this is a Continuous Overt Act. ...


These conditions are not present in all cases. When they are you have a Degraded Being. When a "PTS" person does not respond to PTS handling, try Continuous Missed Withholds and Continuous Overts. You can prevent blows, handle much H[uman] E[motion] and R[esponse] and change character in this way.

Executive Directive from L. Ron Hubbard
15 December 1968
Electric Shock Cases

In this directive, Hubbard gave his staff the impression he was being spied on by people who had been programmed via electric shock.

We are getting a lot of Electric Shock cases. They are coming in on petition lines.

Whereas most of these are innocent victims, the chance remains they are being sent in.

Such cases came in on Phoenix in 1954/55. They were instructed (under shock and drugs) to come in for processing, get it and go insane. One case, a girl, showed up with a cheque from attorneys. The money was put aside and she was placed in a motel. Sure enough her parents showed up in 24 hours demanding to know why we had "driven her insane" and sure enough the girl was now insane. But nobody had processed her or refused her processing. So the very crestfallen "parents" just had to take her away. The enemy plays it very dirty. Human life and sanity are trash to him. He has an unlimited supply of sanitarium cases and a complete disregard of law, human rights or the Nurenberg Code ...

To play it safe, do this on all new cases. ...

3. Add the question "Were you instructed to come here". Clean it up as you can.

4. Get a full documented confession including (as found) who so instructed the person and where. ...

"Insane cases" are made. We recently tried to recall one insane case who had not become so by modern "treatment". We could not find even one insane case who had not been in psychiatric hands.

So, such cases seem to be modernly made. ...

But more important to us, a person who has been institutionalized does not know what has happened to him. He was drugged so as not to know and during it was implanted and severely injured physically. So when we fix him all up and he seems to be all right, if he remains unsure of what happened to him, he again introverts (goes inward) and his nerves are injured. This often makes him a very very untrustworthy being even when processed. Understand me - he is now sane enough. He just isn't very capable. So if our target is able people, we won't recruit many from the physically injured patients of psychiatry. ....

"Insanity" isn't an illness. It's an injury. ...

Why western governments allow these violations of the War Crimes Nurenberg Code (they all signed) I don't know unless they themselves are aberrated into vicious cruelty. ...

Policies on Physical Healing, Insanity and Potential Trouble Sources

This is the policy letter which predefines certain types of people as being "sources" of trouble for a Hubbard organization.


The proper procedure in being requested to heal some complained of physical disability is as follows. ...

4. If however, the physical practitioner's recommendation includes surgery or treatment of an unproven nature or the illness or disease cannot be accurately diagnosed as a specific illness or disease with a known cure, the person may be accepted for processing on the reasonable assumption that no purely physical illness is proven to exist, and that it is probably mental or spiritual in origin. ...


Policies similar to those regarding physical illness and insanity exist for types of persons who have caused us considerable trouble.

These persons can be grouped under "Potential Trouble Sources". They include:

(a) Persons intimately connected with persons (such as marital or familial ties) of known antagonism to mental or spiritual treatment for Scientology. In practice such persons, even when they approach Scientology in a friendly fashion, have such pressure continually brought to bear upon them by persons with undue influence over them that they make very poor gains in processing and their interest is solely devoted to proving the antagonistic element wrong. ...

(b) Criminals with proven criminal records often continue to commit so many undetected harmful acts between sessions that they do not make adequate case gains ...

(c) Persons who have ever threatened to sue or embarrass or attack or who have publicly attacked Scientology or been a party to an attack and all their immediate families should never be accepted for processing by a Central Organization or an auditor. They have a history of only serving other ends than case gain and commonly again turn on the organization or auditor. ...

(f) Person who "want to be processed to see if Scientology works" as their only reason for being audited have never been known to make gains as they do not participate. News reporters fall into this category. They should not be audited. ...

(h) Persons who "have an open mind" but no personal hopes or desires for auditing or knowingness should be ignored, as they really don't have an open mind at all, but a lack of ability to decide about things and are seldom found to be very responsible and waste anyone's efforts "to convince them". ...

(j) Persons attempting to sit in judgment on Scientology on hearings or attempting to investigate Scientology should be given no undue importance. One should not seek to instruct or assist them in any way. This includes judges, boards, newspaper reporters, magazine writers, etc. All efforts to be helpful or instructive have done nothing beneficial as their first idea is a firm "I don't know" and this usually ends with an equally firm "I don't know". If a person can't see for himself or judge from the obvious, then he does not have sufficient powers of observation even to sort out actual evidence. ... In the matter of reporters, etc., it is not worthwhile to give them any time contrary to popular belief. They are given their story before they leave their editorial rooms and you only strengthen what they have to say by saying anything. They are no public communication line that sways much. Policy is very definite. Ignore.

To summarize potential trouble sources, the policy in general is to cut communication as the longer it is extended the more trouble they are. I know of no case where the types of persons listed above were handled by auditing or instruction. I know of many cases where they were handled by firm legal stands, by ignoring them until they changed their minds, or just turning one's back. ...

Scientology works. You don't have to prove it to everyone. People don't deserve to have Scientology as a divine right, you know. They have to earn it. This has been true in every philosophy that sought to better man. ...

All the above "Potential Trouble Sources" are also forbidden training and when a person being trained or audited is detected to belong under the above headings (a) to (j) he or she should be advised to terminate and accept refund which must be paid and once and the full explanation should be given them at that time. Thus the few may not, in their own turmoil, impede service to and the advance of the many. ...

These people are sick spiritually because of their own continuous harmful actions against patients and the society and are beyond our normal means to help. ....

Ours are the powerful communication lines. They are powerful because they are theta lines. Entheta (enturbulated theta) obtains all its apparent power by being parasitic on theta lines. Only when you add the power of our lines to the weakness of entheta lines can they have strength.

Example: It was the F[ounding] C[hurch of Washington,] DC communication to its own field about that government raid that (a) cost the most in cash and (b) did the most damage. You can actually ignore an entheta line in almost all cases without the faintest consequence. It only has power when we let it have power by answering it.

This is more clarification on Potential Trouble Source (PTS).


There are Three Types of PTS.

Type One is the easy one. The SP on the case is right in present time, actively suppressing the person.

Type Two is harder for the apparent Suppressive Person in present time is only a restimulator for the actual suppressive.

Type Three is beyond the facilities of orgs not equipped with hospitals as these are entirely psychotic. ...


There will never be any other reason.

As soon as you doubt this datum and think about "other causes" or try to explain it some other way you no longer prevent cases from worsening and no longer rescue those who have worsened.

The second thing to know is that A SUPPRESSIVE IS ALWAYS A PERSON, A BEING OR A GROUP OF BEINGS. A suppressive is not a condition, a problem, a postulate. ...

But there will always be some failures as the insane sometimes withdraw into rigid unawareness as a final defense, sometimes can't be kept alive and sometimes are too hectic and distraught to ever become quiet, the extremes of too quiet and never quiet have a number of psychiatric names such as "catatonia" (withdrawn totally) and "manic" (too hectic). ....

HCO Policy Letter of 26 December 1966 ...
PTS Sections, Personnel and Execs

In this letter, Hubbard further clarifies the above pre-defined Potential Sources of Trouble as "SP groups," referring to "suppressive persons," whom Hubbard defined as insane and possessing destructive intentions. Governments and the media are two examples of this type of group.

An org has certain sections, units, personnel and executives who go PTS to suppressive elements in the society.

If one knows this, one becomes less puzzled by non-compliances and trouble in those quarters. One can also do something effective if one realizes why. ...

Ideally one removes the SP's in the social groups. But where that is not possible one can do several things:

(a) Limit the number of org personnel such groups contact. ...

(c) Change such personnel frequently.

(d) Develop a system to restrain the SP from easily influencing such org personnel as may remain in contact.

(e) Work gradually but steadily into a position to be able to remove suppressives from the social groups in question, such as becoming more influential as an org, suing, exposing, public education and other means. ....

The first indicator of an org executive has of a unit or staff member going PTS is non-compliance. Such personnel are being overwhelmed in various ways by the SP social groups and have no energy left to undertake their duties or forward org programmes. ....


There are several methods by which a staff member acting as an org contact point in connection with suppressives can balk the agents of SP groups.

One is to always tape record visibly whatever the agent from such a suppressive groups says. "Ah, Mr. Figuretwist of the Tax Division? Good. Now wait a moment so I can record whatever you say. Good. It's now recording. Go ahead." We used to handle the Internal "Revenue" Service of the US this way quite successfully. ....That org only got into tax trouble when it stopped doing this. ...

Any time such agents come around they try to get as many staff into it as possible. And yap and yap and threaten and enturbulate. One must put them in Coventry (silence treatment) from staff other than the contact point. Staff members of a unit must be ordered to walk off without a word whenever such an agent shows up. ... The staff personnel who handles should point at the agent if other staff is about and say some key word like "This is a government man" at which all other staff in the unit turns its back or pointedly walks off. If you do this such agents can't take offence but they get very uneasy, transact quickly, forget their mission to be enturbulative and go away soon. Don't ever think politeness will help you. Tipping one's hat to snakes never stopped a person getting bitten. Walking off has. ....

There are no good reporters. There are no good government or SP group agents. The longer you try to be nice the worse off you will be. And the sooner one learns this the happier he will be. ...

When such agents act or sound very suppressive, get them investigated, find the scandal and attack. It is a fortunate truth that such people also have crimes in their background that can be found. Find and expose them.

SP's are at war. Pleasant conduct, mean conduct, any conduct at all is simply more war. So wage the back action as a battle.

In all the history of Scientology no interviewing reporter has ever helped. They all meant the worst when they acted their best and we are always sorry ever to have spoken. Even if the reporter is all right, his newspaper isn't and will twist his story. We have done best when we have blocked off reporters and worst when we've been nice, so the moral is, a person from an SP group will eventually make an org or some part of it PTS regardless of the agent's conduct. ...

It isn't just imagination that SP's attack Scientology. The evidence has been around for 16 years. ....

So we'll attain new expansion just by applying what is in this policy letter ...

Handle the business they present as effectively as possible on special channels. Don't be nice. Limit their reach. And have less non-compliance and a far more effective and happier org. After all real suppressives only constitute only about 2 1/2 percent of the total population. Why spend more than 2 1/2 percent of your time on them?

The whole stunt is realizing that certain groups are SP and recognizing them and then handling them.

Be alert and stay alive. It won't always be this way.

17. PL 5 April 72, PTS Type A Handling

HCO Policy Letter of 5 April 1972 Issue I
PTS Type A Handling

This is a Hubbard-authorized policy meant for a person connected to a "suppressive person." The policy is to end or nullify the connection in question.


Per HCO Policy Letter of March 7, 1965, it is a CRIME to be or become PTS without reporting it or taking action, or to receive processing while PTS. ...

This means that a person who is PTS may not receive processing or training while PTS and it also means that they had better do something to handle their condition. As per older, now cancelled policy, the PTS individual was required to handle or disconnect from the antagonistic family members before he or she could continue with their training or processing. ...

Scientology executives have had to promise the New Zealand government that the policy of disconnection from families would be cancelled. This was done. But since that time we have had more PTS trouble than before.

Therefore what is needed is a legal and more sensible way to handle. ...

Each PTS individual should report to Ethics and with the assistance of Ethics find a WHY as to their familial antagonism and then set about actually handling the situation. ...

The handling could be as simple as writing to one's father and saying, "I do not complain that you are a janitor, please do not complain that I am a Scientologist. The important thing is that I am your son and that I love and respect you. I know you love me, but please learn to respect me as an adult individual who knows what he wants in life." Or it could be as followed, "I am writing to you, Daddy, because mother keeps sending me these dreadful newspaper clippings and they are upsetting to me because I know they are not true. You do not do this and so it is easier for me to write to you."

Again, there are as many ways of handling as there are why's found. Each case is individual. ...

HCO Bulletin of 10 August 1973 ...
PTS Handling
(PTS = Potential Trouble Source)

This policy provides more motivation for staff not to communicate with "suppressive" groups, such as the media. It indicates that failures and illnesses are caused by connection with "suppressive" groups. "PTS" means connected to a "suppressive" group.

There are two stable data which anyone has to have, understand and KNOW ARE TRUE in order to obtain results in handling the person connected to the suppressives.

These data are:

1. That all illness in greater or lesser degree and all foul-ups stem directly and only from a PTS condition.

2. That getting rid of the condition requires three basic actions: A. Discover. B. Handle or disconnect. [sic] ...

In a more garbled way, the medicos and nutritionists are always talking about "stress" causing illness. Lacking full tech they yet have an inkling that this is so because they see it is somehow true. They cannot handle it. Yet they recognize it, and they state that it is a senior situation to various illnesses and accidents. Well we have the tech of this in more ways than one.

What is this thing called "stress?" It is more than the medico defines it - he usually says it comes from operational or physical shock and in this he has too limited a view.

A person under stress is actually under a suppression on one or more dynamics. ....

A PTS person can be markedly helped in three ways:

(a) gaining an understanding of the tech of the condition
(b) discovering to what or to whom he is PTS
(c) handling or disconnecting. ...

HCO Policy Letter of 15 September 1973 ...
Handling Suppressives ...

"Handle or disconnect" is part of current procedure on handling Potential Trouble Sources, as per HCO B 10 August '73, "PTS Handling".

This does not mean that we are returning to the practice of publishing or writing disconnection letters to the person concerned. ...

One needs to understand the meaning of the word Disconnection in order to be able to apply it. Disconnection = to break or undo the connection of, separate, detach.

Disconnection has come to mean the actual action of writing to a person to inform him/her of the fact. This is a very extreme example of the word. A person can simply decide to disconnect and be disconnected from that moment on.

In some cases, the item found may be dead, and the person have no other choice than to disconnect. In that event, the person simply disconnects then and there, in the Ethics Officer's office, or in session. No other action is required. Some may wish to write up a statement of such which is simply filed in his ethics file, with no other action taken. It is not mailed to anyone. ...

In only a few cases will open disconnection handling be required, and when this happens, it must be handled with the utmost care so that no repercussions occur. ...
