THOSE WHO ATTACK SCIENTOLOGY
(Excerpted from a briefing of 28 May 1968.)
Our first target should be removing the suppressives or paralyzing them or immobilizing them—those who are immediately and directly attacking Scientology orgs.
We are reinforced by the fact that those who attack Scientology commonly have the most unsavory backgrounds you ever heard of. So, our usual one-two is to find out who is giving the orders and then find out what his criminal past is. And then we do it rather noisily so that it becomes known that we know and he shuts up. That is usually the modus operandi.
It worked on Lord Balniel. It’s worked other places and other times. But this is momentary and it gives us an opportunity to build up our Intelligence service. That Intelligence service will graduate, then, up to locating the key points of control on the planet. And by some means, which we have yet to develop because we don’t have enough information on it, we may be able to invite ourselves upon the very ambitious program of bringing the planet sufficiently under control to preserve its peace. We must be very worrisome to such powers because after we offered to help the United States army by fixing up its pilots so they can fly better, we were attacked by Kennedy—it gets up to high White House level. The president of MIT was once advising the president that he had better look into Scientology and within about thirty days they got rid of him. These things all mean something. They all tie up someplace. It’s up to us to find out where they do tie up and why they tie up in this fashion.
If we could be effective enough to stop parliaments in their tracks we should also be effective enough to point parliaments in another direction. If we can stop them attacking us we can certainly turn them around and point them some other way. So it’s less ambitious than it looks. Much less ambitious.
