SUPPRESSIVES AND THE ADMINISTRATOR
HOW TO DETECT SPs AS AN ADMINISTRATOR
There are three areas of detection which an administrator can utilize in the detection of a suppressive person.
1. No ethics change,
2. No case change,
3. No admin change.
An SP (suppressive person) is unable to change because he cannot, himself, confront. He is badly “out of valence.”
Therefore, not being able to look at things directly, he is unable to erase them or even see what they are. Such people often have a curtain of pictures they look at instead of the universe around them.
They do not see a building. They see a picture of a building in front of the building. They are not at the point from which they view things.
Thus they are peculiar in that they can’t change.
The three principal zones in a Scientology org are:
We have the natural laws of these subjects, each one.
If you can get in ethics, you can get in Scientology technology. If you can get in Scientology technology, you can get in admin. If you can get all three in, you have an org and have expansion.
If you can’t get in tech, ethics is out. If you can’t get in admin, both tech and ethics are out.
The sequence of things that have to be “gotten in” to make an org is first ethics, second tech, third admin.
Where one of these goes out, the org contracts.
We have these three sciences. To really handle things, one has to be a master of all three, even to live a good personal life.
By “get in” we mean get it applied and effective.
We live in a very woggy world at this time. The wog is so out-ethics he is living in what amounts to a criminal society.
When we try to get tech in on the planet we run into the out-ethics areas and this is the real source of our troubles where we have any. We are getting in tech before we get in ethics. It can be done (obviously, since we are doing it). But it is a heavy strain at best.
Just because we do not at once get ethics in on the planet does not mean we can’t get any tech in.
By handling small sectors, beginning with self and Scientology groups and orgs, we can continue to repeat the cycles of three—ethics, tech, admin. Gradually we enlarge the numbers we have and gradually our sphere of ethics-tech-admin expands. And we one day have ethics in on the planet, tech in on the planet, admin in on the planet.
The only stumbling block is the SP. This person (about 10 percent of the population) is unable to change. We can process them if we can get them to sit still.
But these are the hidden booby traps which make one’s life, one’s family, one’s org, one’s nation, one’s planet a rough-rough proposition.
Ninety percent of the people say, “Ethics great, tech great, admin great.” And away we go.
Ten percent say, “Horrible, horrible, horrible.” And cannot either see or change. They are the true psychotics no matter how “sane” they sound. The people in institutions are generally only their victims.
This 10 percent, one must be able to detect and weed out so they don’t contaminate areas we are bringing up in ethics, tech and admin.
Our policy is we don’t waste time on them. To cater to them is to betray 90 percent of the population. So we set them aside for another day.
We get them off lines, out of orgs and to one side.
The true character of these people is usually masked in many ways. They are expert only in deception and can take on any guise.
To listen to them one would suppose he was talking to his best friend sometimes.
Except the knife in one’s back is also driven in by them.
We have much tech to describe them.
But one does not have to be an auditor with a meter to find these people.
An administrator only needs to know the three things about them:
1. No change in ethics,
2. No change in case,
3. No change in admin.
These people have:
1. Thick ethics files,
2. Thick (or no) case files,
3. Thick, full (or no) comm baskets.
If you just dismissed anyone who had all three, you would have gotten rid of an SP.
It works this way. When you start to get in ethics, most people “learn the ropes” fast. They may have a few down conditions and chits or even Courts or Comm Evs but you see the frequency dwindles and eventually vanishes or nearly so.
When you start to get in tech on a person, it may be a hard haul for a while and then it begins to level out and get easier.
When you start to get in admin, the confusion around some person may be great but after a while the lines and policies straighten out.
None are good little angels. But 90 percent make progress in these three fields of ethics, tech and admin.
The SP does NOT make any consistent progress at all and lapses every time.
As only 10 percent of the people then are making nearly all the tough work in ethics, tech and admin, the thing to do then is to get them off the lines rather than betray 90 percent.
And the SP is detectable in ALL THREE AREAS. It needs no microscope to find out who on a staff has the seniors working so hard for so little gain.
Their ethics file is huge, their case file either doesn’t exist at all or is very fat, their comm lines are jammed, their policy is out and their stats are on the bottom eternally.
So as an administrator you can detect SPs. You better had. YOUR OWN STATS WILL BE DOWN TO THE DEGREE YOU FAIL TO DETECT THEM.
Just go to your files and look at the desks and sack whoever satisfies all three conditions above and you can’t miss and WILL be able to breathe.
