HCO POLICY LETTER OF 7 DECEMBER 19591
Every time one tries to clean up criminals or Communists 2out of Scientology and thereby gain some internal sanity and self-respect, there are blowups in unexpected places.
Technically, persons with undeclared crimes are unauditable as they will not go into two-way communication with their auditor and therefore all failed cases come under the heading of persons with undeclared overts they are afraid to tell, especially a Scientologist. Thus we are left with failed cases. Thus the recent order that all cases to be audited must have a tone arm sitting at the Clear reading for that person. The needle is talked down or audited down on overts and withholds on third dynamic matters which usually include second dynamic irregularities. This means first that we are going to solve all these cases. It means secondly that we must have nothing but completely honest auditors who can follow a code and never use blackmail or spread pc secrets. So a cleanup was in order the moment this technology was discovered.
In Australia I found the most failed case to be one Douglas Moon. Moon was then sacked out of HASI Melbourne and on my persuasion signed a complete confession to numerous crimes. He was ordered to clearing and to settle these matters with the police which he is doing quite commendably. BUT for five years this person has had HASI Melbourne in a stew and the moment he was removed we had double the PE Foundation people and a happy staff. This backfired in a peculiar way. Moon’s best friend at one time was Iain Thompson. As soon as Moon was sacked Iain went to work on Saint Hill and with the gratuitous assistance of his wife, of Norma Webb and Dinah Day and Peter Stumbke wrecked every line to hand and tried to strip the place of staff.
Poor Mary Sue, trying desperately to hold the place together while I was in Australia, was accused of sacking everybody which she did not. She was violently treated as well as the children. Of course this is a scandalous state of affairs and of course should be hidden secretly, eh? But I have the situation under control even though the day I returned from down under I found no staff.
The usual self-protective commie mechanism was afloat to the effect that I was out to destroy everything by believing people were against me-which is proved the instant I fire somebody who has been strangling the baby. That I fire them proves the story, of course. This was afloat in California in 1950 and is an old wheeze. The truth is that personnel was in the hands of a former party member who unknownst to us recruited four commies into a twenty-two-person staff.
The rest of the staff is still here. The persons with commie connections ran the moment I appeared and are not here.
POLICY: WHEN A PERSON HAS BEEN DISMISSED OR HAS RUN BECAUSE COMMUNIST OR CRIMINAL CONNECTIONS HAVE BEEN DISCOVERED WITHOUT HIS VOLUNTEERING THEM, HIS CERTIFICATES AND COMM LINES ARE CANCELLED AND WILL NOT BE RESTORED UNTIL THIS PERSON’S OVERT ACTS AND WITHHOLDS ON SCIENTOLOGY AND CONNECTED PERSONS AND ORGS HAVE BEEN WRITTEN DOWN IN FULL AND THE PERSON CLEARED FULLY ON AN E-METER BY AN HCO PERSONNEL. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO DUPES OF SUCH PERSONS. ONLY THEN WILL CERTIFICATES BE CONSIDERED AND COMM LINES RESTORED.
It’s a bitter fact sometimes that Scientologists are so reasonable about these pushes. It leaves me manning the ramparts in a lonely fashion. But as you notice I can usually rehabilitate the situation and the persons and keep a constructive program going. But how about helping me out on these things? Let’s get the persons whose cases don’t move cleared of overts and withholds and have an honest teammate where we had a secret destroyer. We have the technology along with the emergency this time. So let’s finish off the future emergency by cleaning up Scientology now.
