HUBBARD COMMUNICATIONS OFFICE
Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 4 AUGUST 1966
CLEARS, INVALIDATION OF
Spreading false tales to invalidate Clears is a high crime.1
Anyone found spreading libelous and slanderous statements about the alleged behavior of Clears shall be declared suppressive at once by the first Ethics Officer so hearing of the matter. Investigation should take the form of looking for a criminal background on the person spreading such rumors.
For sixteen years I have been subjected to this type of attack. Now it is being transferred to Clears by suppressive persons.
Such attacks are born out of terror of having anyone better or stronger. This is the basic motivation of any SP.
It has been a hard task to bring the shreds of civilization to a scientific barbarism known as “Western culture.”
Quite obviously it will require a long time to get ethics in on this society. We have not been tough enough.
So get tough.
