HCO EXECUTIVE LETTER OF 5 SEPTEMBER 19661
Subject: How to do a NOISY Investigation.
Further to HCO Executive Letter of 3 August 1966, Cathy Gogerly, HCC Area Sec, Adelaide, Australia, has given details of how to go about dealing with attackers of Scientology.
” … Here’s what you do.Soon as one of these threats starts you get a Scientologist or Scientologists to investigate noisily.
You find out where he or she works or worked, doctor, dentist, friends, neighbours, anyone, and ‘phone ’em up and say, “I am investigating Mr/Mrs ………. for criminal activities as he/she has been trying to prevent Man’s freedom and is restricting my religious freedom and that of my friends and children, etc”.
You say now and then, “I have already got some astounding facts,” etc., etc. (Use a generality.) It doesn’t matter if you don’t get much info. Just be NOISY – it’s very odd at first, but makes fantastic sense and WORKS. (Honestly, you feel a real dill, its [sic] so reverse to all detective work.)
You will find that Scientologists will come rushing forward with 90 per cent of your facts anyway. (They are never from auditing sessions.) Scientologists are really terribly ethical.
Best and love,
L. RON HUBBARD
