PTS PERSONNEL AND FINANCE
PTS means Potential Trouble Source. This is a person who is connected to a suppressive person, group or thing. (For further data on PTSness see HCOB 24 Nov. 65, SEARCH AND DISCOVERY, and HCO PL 27 Oct. 64, POLICIES ON PHYSICAL HEALING, INSANITY AND POTENTIAL TROUBLE SOURCES.)
NCG means No Case Gain despite good and sufficient auditing.
A chronically ill person, whether the person is known to be connected to a suppressive or not, is always found to have been so connected and PTS.
IT IS UNSHAKEABLE POLICY HEREAFTER THAT NO PERSON WHO IS PTS OR CHRONICALLY ILL OR WHO GETS NO CASE GAIN MAY BE ON FINANCE OR REGISTRAR LINES OR IN TOP COMMAND POSTS OR AS HAS OR ETHICS OFFICER OR MAA.
A person who is connected to a suppressive person, group or thing will dramatize a “can’t-have” or an “enforced overt-have” on an org or staff members.
A “can’t-have” means just that-a depriving of substance or action or things.
An “enforced overt-have” means forcing upon another a substance, action or thing not wanted or refused by the other.
The technical fact is that a PTS person got that way because the suppressive was suppressive by depriving the other or enforcing unwanted things upon the person.
The PTS person will dramatize this characteristic in reaction to the suppression.
Therefore, a PTS person as an ED, CO, product officer, org officer, Treasury Sec, Cashier or Body Reg will run a can’t-have on the org and its staff by:
a. Refusing income,
b. Wasting income made,
c. Accepting wrong customers (like psychos) and forcing them on the org,
d. Fail to provide staff or service,
e. Advocate overt products.
When staffs went on proportionate pay in the late 1950s, so long as I ran the orgs directly the staffs made more money than before.
When I moved off these lines directly, the staffs began to receive less money personally.
At that time it seemed to me that proportionate pay served as an excuse to some in an org to run a can’t-have on the staff.
We knew that some Registrars could take money in easily and others never seemed to be able to.
The technical reason for this has just emerged in another line of research entirely.
In completing materials and search on Expanded Dianetics, I was working on the mechanism of how a PTS person remained ill.
I found suppressives became so to the person by running a “can’t-have” and “enforced overt-have.” This pinned the PTS person to the suppressive.
Working further I found that a PTS person was a robot to the suppressive. (See HCOB 10 May 72, ROBOTISM)
This research was in the direction of making people well.
Suddenly it was apparent that a PTS person, as a robot to SPs, will run “can’t-haves” and “enforced overt-haves” on others.
Checking rapidly, it was found that where finance lines were very sour a PTS person was on those lines.
PTS tech, Objective Processes, PTS Rundowns, Money Processes and Expanded Dianetics will handle the condition.
However, one cannot be sure that it has been handled expertly in orgs where a money “can’t-have” has been run as its tech quality will be low due to an already existing lack of finance.
Only stats would tell if the situation has been handled fully.
Thus the policy stands. Handled or not handled, no person who is PTS or who has no case gain will be permitted in top command or any lines that influence finance.
Any org which has consistently low income should be at once suspect of having PTS or NCG persons on the key finance posts, and an immediate action should be taken to discover the PTS or NCG condition and replace such persons with those who are not connected to suppressives or who do get case gain.
Nothing in this policy letter permits any PTS person to be in an org or cancels any policy with regard to PTS.
This policy letter requires direct check, close investigation and handling of PTS or SP situations on these posts that may go undetected otherwise.
NOTHING IN THIS POLICY LETTER PERMITS ANY KEY ORG POST TO REMAIN EMPTY.
As a comment on something that may impinge on orgs and might affect them, the FOREMOST reason for a failing national prosperity and inflation is a personal income tax agency. This runs a vicious can’t-have on every citizen and makes them PTS to the government. Individuals even begin to run a can’t-have on themselves and do not produce. This IS the cause of a failing national economy.
It can be a factor in an org and must be handled on the individuals so affected.
