COMMUNISM AND THE US GOVERNMENT
(Excerpted from a response to a compilation of
materials provided on 25 July 1975.)
Sometime probably December of 1950, the Board of Directors of the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation in New Jersey, probably at the instigation of Parker Morgan (a former FBI and OSS agent, at that time a member of the Board), visited J. Edgar Hoover in relation to the unreasonable attacks which were occurring on the HDRF. Mr. Hoover’s assistant apparently inferred that these attacks must be of communist origin and referred the existing Board and in person conducted them to the head of the Communist Activities Division. He appeared very withholdy and confused by this sudden advent of the Board but he gave the Board to understand that it probably was of communist origin. The Board of Directors made a bargain with the FBI to turn over to them the names of all staff members in all the existing orgs at that time and the FBI made a bargain in return to return to them those names which were not communist. There were one thousand names on the list. Two hundred and fifty-two of these names had been deleted by the FBI. The FBI said that it could not tell them directly that these people or anyone was a communist but it used this method of singling out the communists connected with the organization.
In this fashion a spirit of cooperation was built by the FBI directly to hunt down communists who were knocking apart the organization. Through 1952 the FBI was also reportedly active trying to locate certain communists who supposedly had joined the organization.
It was however the FBI which planted the idea with the HDRF and with me that all our trouble was stemming from the communists. We were in fact under this direct impression throughout 1950 and until the outright attack by the United States government in ‘62. This matter, then, was directly caused by government propaganda. I never believed there was any particular conspiracy against the organizations and did not take any particular action until the early ‘60s at which time I put on my own intelligence officer hat and did an appreciation of the general scene. That appreciation took it straight out of the communist line of think and more or less accurately described the scene which we have been running down since that date. My prediction in the matter was true. That of the Justice Department and federal government was knowingly false.
During the time that the Justice Department and other government agencies were propagandizing the American people and us to believe that communist infiltration was the cause of all these strange dirty tricks which were occurring, the federal government was itself engaging in various dirty tricks against its own people. Intelligence files have demonstrated that there were various circulations against me and Scientologists occurring in the early ‘50s. During that period of time the Justice Department must have been well aware of that and yet continued to pose as a protector. All that I can make out of this at this writing and without further study of the matter is that this was a government ploy.
It is highly probable that every approach to me on the subject of going to Russia from 1948 on was a direct instigation by the federal government agencies.
Had I at any time accepted such a suggestion they could have arrested me and destroyed me.
It looks like a case at first glance here of police provocation.
At this writing, and purely for propaganda purposes, I would estimate that the late ‘40s and ‘50s communist infiltration scares, including those of McCarthy, were direct instigations of federal government agencies to bring about various purposes best known to themselves. They had the Korean War promoted. They had the Vietnamese War promoted and I wonder how much actual communist infiltration ever occurred. And I also wonder how much share of blame for the cold war the United States bears. During the ‘50s they had every church and social organization believing that it was being attacked and infiltrated by communists. We now know from the “Enemies List” and from various revelations that the federal government itself was engaged in dirty tricks against social and cultural groups in America. And in this instance particularly they certainly were at pains to make the early Dianetics and Scientology
organizations believe that they were being victimized by the communists and we know very well that it was the federal government itself which was keeping the organizations upset.
The matter is neither actionable nor libelous toward me as in each case of “communist” approach, I gave a very thorough “no.”
These files are valuable in that they disclose the fact that somewhere there may be an operations file or memo or plan to provoke me into accepting a discreditable invitation.
The entire atmosphere that was built around myself and organizations in the ‘50s was that communists were seeing we were being hit in America so that we would be driven to collaboration with Russia. It appears that this structure was probably a fabrication by US agencies to bring about some sort of incrimination.
Whoever originated such a plan or whoever originated the attacks and prevailed upon the federal government to engage upon them remains of vast interest to us. As these approaches after the war could be considered as covert or intelligence approaches, it is highly unlikely that the persons making them would go to any great effort to identify themselves or impinge upon one’s memory. Intelligence has a habit of employing people who are non-descript and who are not easily remembered. Furthermore, it is highly probable that the persons were not even using their right names.
The value of the information provided has been to expose a possibility of a much earlier conspiracy and perhaps even a criminal police provocation which was pulled not only on us but upon many, many people to make them believe that activities of the US government in the order of “dirty tricks” were communist in origin so as to stimulate some war enthusiasm or for some other discreditable reason.

HELPING THE GOVERNMENTS OF EARTH
(From an undated despatch.)
A government will always accept a helping hand but it is so scarce that it takes a government leader a long time to be convinced that it is being held out. So few people help the government that they don’t know what the hand is out for. Men use governments to feather their own nests and better their own ends, but there are sincere men in government who are trying to do what is right.
If we wish to go in any direction in the field of politics, let’s be sure we go in the direction of giving the existing government and the powers that be a hand in bringing about a higher level of civilization and a better understanding of life. If we strike at anything we should strike at these intermediate problems such as the atomic bomb, smallpox, whooping cough, bubonic plague and all the rest of things that confront Man as his enemies.
What do we have in Scientology with which to help Man and governments? We have something which assists, not fights, Man’s enemies. Man will fight his real enemies which he isn’t fighting now.
Our job as Scientologists in this society is to bring Man up to a level where he can confront his natural enemies and live at peace with his fellows, and if we can do that on a very broad level as we are doing in a smaller sphere, then we would have brought a better civilization to earth—and that I think, is what we are trying to do.

SPECIAL PROJECT AUSTRALIA
(Taken from an undated manuscript written for Australian Scientologists concerning the enquiry conducted at the behest of the British Medical Association [BMA] by the Victorian government. It is issued here as it contains broadly applicable technology for all areas.)
The continuous statement on a positive side about Scientology will overcome any entheta thrown at it.
The power of a mass repeated positive postulate is enormous. No negative postulate such as “medicine doesn’t work” is needed. All you have to say is “Scientology works.”
No BMA or political group can overcome the cumulative power of this action by us, no matter how much they spend or who or what they bribe.
NO GOVERNMENT PERMISSION
If we stand around and wait for protective laws, nothing constructive will happen.
Giants don’t need protection. There is something deadly about being protected by legislation anyway. Laws stem from public customs. Establish the custom and you can create the law.
A POSITIVE PROGRAM
The whole activity of healing groups derives from their inability to prevent illness. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure, and also total lack of prevention adds up to BMA and psychiatric millions.
The way to really wipe out the apparent power of medicine and psychiatry to harm is to be truly effective in preventing the necessity of their use. The larger percentage of the population that remains well, the smaller percentage will patronize totally healing groups like the BMA.
It is within our power to proof Australia against mental and physical illness. This is in itself a good goal and a workable one.
And it is, after all, the best and quietest answer to all threats—be effective.
So let us set our goal for Australia, both to win on all dynamics and to vanquish our enemies.
We have the technology, “they” don’t. We’re the experts. “They” aren’t. “They” could not even copy us for their ethical level is too low.
You could even get the government to cooperate. For it would relieve them of enormous expenses. But why wait on that?
A government today is a political effort to dominate the minds and loyalties of men. Most governments can only act to make men slaves. That makes any political government today a strange bedfellow for Scientologists. We don’t need their help. We are independent people. All we have to do is make it our job to make Australia proud and free.

OCCUPY TERRITORY EVAL
(Originally written by LRH on 6 November 1972.)
SITUATION: Governments hold onto and nurse psychiatry and the mental health movement. Vital tech of Scientology not used by governments yet.
DATA: Psychs can’t deliver yet governments hold on. Psychs just PR without delivery. Government still retains them.
ADMIN WHY: We have not PRed governments properly to make them offload psychs and onload Scientology.
ETHICS WHY: Governments not evaluating and accepting false reports.
IDEAL SCENE: Scientology has replaced psychs in all government zones.
1. Continue to attack psychs everywhere.
EXT AFFAIRS STAFF
2. Survey what governments want and also think they are getting from psychs and what governments don’t like about psychs.
3. Compose and deliver campaign to inform governments properly as per sample (unsurveyed) brochure attached. Note it does not mention religion. What we really can do in each zone of government interest should be stated calmly like business service card style. But a nice brochure. Caution: Needs survey.
4. Do a leaflet that covers each point of the brochure so as to answer queries about that service. Use STATS.
5. Train up new PR contact people on Big League Sales Closing Techniques AND USE THE TECHNIQUES TO SELL NOT COURSES BUT AGREEMENT THAT SCIENTOLOGY IS NEEDED. Use Big League to get agreement (not agreements), or some favor. The thing sold is the idea of Scientology. The exchange is acceptability (not money). Make THEM reach to orgs.

SAMPLE (UNSURVEYED) BROCHURE
PATRIOTISM—Removal of the causes of revolt and dissatisfaction.
IMPROVED PUBLIC RELATIONS
The message is, they don’t need the stigma of the unpopular psychiatrist when they can have the services of a popular subject that does the job. They don’t need to buy the hope or promises of psychiatry as we have already resolved their field and are delivering real mental health daily.
The idea is to unsell states and financiers on psychiatry and sell them Scientology in its place. (Without betraying our own public.)
A Scientology brochure on what Scientology could do for the state and the worker:
Education—for more effective education, apply what they learn:
Health: More effective health programs
Better utilization of resource
Cure or control of the insane
Better data analysis
Production: Reduced absenteeism and breakage

(Originally written by LRH on 21 July 1973.)
HCO PL 25 Apr. 68 INTELLIGENCE ACTIONS
According to a comment just received, intelligence filing may not be in accordance to earlier written instructions covering intelligence filing (Ref: HCO PL 25 Apr. 1968, INTELLIGENCE ACTIONS). Groups, in this comment, are noted as the attack sources.
The original instructions applied to individuals.
It is not factual that there is no one attack centrale if one interprets this centrale as “individual.”
Let us look at an outpoint. A German press bird had a report from German police Interpol. Now how would a press bird or even German police have that if some employed PRO was not pushing it around to press birds? They (press birds) have no access to or awareness of such as not even some police can get them. And another: You had France, Spain, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland and Morocco all hitting in the same time period; the chances of this being coincidence are hundreds to one. And another: All attacks were similar. And another: (you didn’t see this one because you shattered each one with remarkable unlooked for—by them—defense) The attacks were neatly planned to coincide with several arranged catastrophes which backfired on them— had one of these actually occurred the rest would have swept up like a hurricane, cross-enforcing one another. That doesn’t happen by coincidence. Their terminals were alerted and acted without realizing the attack had bogged elsewhere; in Dec. ‘72 this was hair-triggered to go off in the areas mentioned plus South Africa and Australia and possibly also US And another: Swiss franc source in Switzerland is not a member of any of these named groups nor interested in them or their concerns and had to be prodded from an exterior source to take the action; and they caved quickly because their connections would have been bared—the omitted source of that attack is a very big outpoint.
I wish to point out the accuracy of the 1965 extrapolation I made and how you eventually found not only Mary Appleby but the uncle I had described exactly as having existence in fact (Ref: OSA NW Order 8, WORKING THEORY). I said that uncle existed (Otto) and sure enough, four years or more later you found him. And there was his mental health connection very busy with the poison pen. Now that uncle was an individual. Only Mary Appleby was the group. Get it? Groups do not fire off unless fired up.
Each group mentioned is just a group. A group does not breathe or bleed. An individual does. Intelligence only uses groups to sort out individuals. Intelligence filing does include groups but these are in a sort of side file. Now let us see what we have as a practical action.
US = American Medical Association,
England = National Association of Mental Health, Home Office and
Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS),
France = Probably also police in contact with Home Office, England,
Australia = Psychologists, the US Food and Drug Administration and Australian
Now there is a rule: when a monopoly is seeking to exert itself, it uses governments to do its work for it. Thus in the above we can strike out:
England: strike out Home Office and DHSS.
France: that’s only police. You actually don’t know.
Australia: the US FDA was pushed to act in the US by the AMA; Australian intelligence was just pushed.
This leaves a cross-reference that looks like this:
US = AMA,
England = NAMH,
Australia = AMA and psychologists.
This gets us somewhere. No government bum ever acts on his own initiative: Governments today are simply like prostitutes—they are used. So forget the vision of some government bum at his little dusty desk going into a towering fit and planning it all out. Rather get the idea of some government bum and some press idiot with anxiety to please or money in his jeans, being fed a planned line of attack to remove stumbling blocks to attempted monopoly.
In the US, the AMA is financed by ads bought by drug companies. Who owns the drug companies? What is the cross-reference of the AMA and drug companies in terms of individuals? Looking here I have found the AMA cross-references in most wide and wonderful ways.
Now comes cross-filing. We have the NAMH, the AMA and psychologists. All right, your cross-files should consist of cross-referenced names of individuals. The NAMH references across to the US AMA: we know that. But the names? You found the UK Inquiry was written by a PRO firm. Well, the AMA employs PRO firms by the ton in the US And may in England and Australia as well.
Your intelligence filing should cross-reference names. This results in fat individual files of individuals. Group connections interweave amongst these names. Sitting in that file you should have eight folders that are very fat. These would be the folders of exact PERSONS, not groups.
Not having your files, but working on this over a long time, I know of only one name that can bridge this fantastic breadth of terrain.
You omit that in England ALL your individual attackers were intelligence people. You have an Australian intelligence noted. You know of a Justice Department file full of planted reports that are false, also a Home Office and France and now a Germany file and also now an Australian file all carrying the same sorry tale.
THE name was very thoroughly intelligence connected or he could not have entered all those false things in those files. You say “police” but police never reported those things as in Washington, DC, there was no police, only FDA. In the same way, the Home Office has no police basis for its file. Thus these files have been tampered with. False material has been placed in them. Then this material is fed to police and to press (as you just found out).
Now who operates exactly that way? The AMA does. They have been doing that for all this century to others. They put false reports into police and press, sometimes press first and then police.
Thus the pattern is an AMA pattern for rivals.
But who, the other day, was being cited for collusion to tamper, as a politician, with medical matters? Who, through his former secretary, ran all intelligence in the US and Germany? Who owns the drug companies? Who financed that German institute? The only name that answers all these points today is Rockefeller.
Your cross-filing will probably connect Rockefeller to the NAMH US. It should connect also to the UK NAMH and even UK and Australia intelligence and it may connect to press ownership.
By cross-filing, such names pop up.
Every actual group mentioned is connected by common interests. Thus they will also connect with names.
An intelligence file, made up per the write-up of 1968, will laboriously collect fatter and fatter files around certain individuals: Members of boards, past connections, current clippings.
The biggest outpoint in the whole scene is that Scientology is innocent, constructive, valuable. And attacks have not only existed but continue. Wrong target. If you have not got the files in that optimum state, then one has to apply flair. Is Rockefeller connected to press in Spain or anything else in Spain? You see, you have groups cited as sources. But who, through what intermediaries, stirred up AND FINANCED those groups.
Somebody had to pay a bill. A very big bill it is, too. Getting finance is a primary condition for some intermediary before he will exert himself. A PRO firm says, “Cheers, we’ll murder the bums for you BUT where is the bread?”
Assuming that all these wild attacks occur by spontaneous combustion is an unreasonable assumption—conflicting data. For you have the public behind you. The outpoints are so many over so many years that they had to be promoted into existence. And you have the facts already that AMA had to work very hard in 1954, 1955 to do you out of the Osborn house—they even went door to door, had police and press and local government all combined. But WHO shelled out? You think some medical bums or psychiatry nuts climb out of their pig troughs long enough to act without pay? Conflicting data.
In Keynes you found that the press and psychiatry and government birds were in collusion with the drug companies to put their unwanted citizens in stockades and drug them ALL FOR THE DOUGH. Such people do things for bread, not for principles. True of any criminal. And boy they ARE criminals. Cross-filing in that scene would lead it out of Keynes, probably via the drug companies. And that touches the AMA in one forked trail and who does it touch on the other—the drug companies? Is Keynes drug connected to Rockefeller Drug? Your cross-filing should be able to answer that.
Any remissness in not doing full 1968 intelligence filing by the book should be remedied as it would spit out a lot of answers for which you are now groping. I wish I could work those files. I would find Mr. International Attacks. I will have to find him in any case. But the intelligence files, up-to-date and by the book, would help immensely.

POLICE, AGENCY SUITS
(Originally written on 12 September 1973, concerning suits which were filed against police and government agencies in Germany, in order to handle their spreading of false reports.)
1. Essentially this is a PR action and if made so it will also win. People hate police and are willing to believe almost anything bad about them. Therefore:
a. You must not depend wholly on your already overloaded PR personnel. You must retain small PR firms to flank these suits in important places. A deal for special news and campaign handling of the local suit could be made. Retention should be a Church campaigning for the rights of the individual with a hot case to back it up, not dissemination of Scientology or its protection. This action must be at once programmed with targets so that these firms are actually retained.
b. The basic public issue here is whether or not police can invent dossiers against individuals or groups and circulate them amongst themselves and to judges so that the human rights of the person or group are covertly destroyed. This is general modern police practice and even includes leaking these false reports to press as factual and inciting the media. This is a violation of the common law principle that a person must be faced by his accusers and that accusations must be known to him. This strikes at the integrity of a known corrupt police system.
c. Frighten them into hysteria so they begin to make mistakes, become violent or even more oppressive or collapse. This is a marvelous PR condition around which very effective campaigns can be built, a PR man’s dream. Hear this as a campaign: An ad in a paper, repeating, placed by our legal and so signed, which requests that anyone who has ever had a false police charge placed against him or who has reason to believe the police have or are using a false record to ruin his life should communicate with the attorneys. That gives you some idea of the PR potential.
d. The police love to try people in the press and erode public opinion against them so that when the police strike the way is all prepared so that they can say they are after criminals. In this way and by false stats of crime and other means they build up their status and numbers and cover up the fact that they are themselves engaging in acts contrary to public safety. They are therefore peculiarly sensitive to any motivator in this area. It remains that police must be tried by us in the press on and on and on.
e. Police are employed by self interest groups to get rid of their rivals. We have this in the National Association of Mental Health (NAMH). All one has to do is discover a friendship between NAMH and the police in any area (and these connections abound) to prove that self interest groups get rid of rivals by using false reports in the police.
f. This must be built up PR-wise to a very broad public issue that affects every man, woman and child in a country and causes a very great deal of civil protest forcing the resignations of anyone who has been connected with such activities. The Germans are good at making people resign.
g. German press laws are very loose and cases can be tried in the press without being sub judice.
h. It is a stroke of luck that GERMAN, which to the world means NAZI, police are at the bottom of this. This extends to every other police force or agency named in the suit anywhere so they all become Fascists by association.
i. PR should work hard to pull in any other group under attack or otherwise into this, “What police false reports are causing YOUR trouble?” is the motif. The demand is that police violently reform and quit doing this. Thetans will agree on stopping something. They will agree as groups in stopping the police. If this is backed up hard enough with enough groups there will not only be resignations but new laws passed to restrain this secret and insane practice of inventing dossiers to CAUSE public unrest rather than forward public safety.
j. Police are a prime target in all revolts. It can be made plain to politicians that corrupt police are a threat to their regime and that public unrest can become so bad that they could be swept away. In any political circle today there is an abiding fear of the masses, of revolt. Almost any politician thinks about this today. If it is pointed out that their regime is being undermined by corrupt and illegal police practices they will call for resignations and pass laws. Thus there is a heavy lobby function to be undertaken and this must be provided for in all programming of PR.
k. The danger of secret reports being circulated within a country is bad enough but look at the international scene. OVER 900 young Americans are in European prisons, put there because the FBI tipped off the foreign police to frame them or grab them. You will find in every case that an FBI finger was put on every one of these people and they do not even know it. In other words, they shoot their people overseas. And so does every other police force; and so does every other police force use false reports.
l. The police have a kingdom of their own known as Interpol. It has no court above it. It deals in torrents of false reports. It has its own radios around the world. It actually has no legal propriety whatever as it is under no sovereign, only under police forces. It has constituted itself a sovereign power. It manipulates events in the world by issuing false reports. It is the new Fascist regime. It should be disbanded and eradicated as a cancer hidden in and unknown to Mankind. Through it, police could take over the world and undoubtedly sometimes dream of it. The head of Interpol is an absolute dictator, a Hitler governed by no superior court. Anyone with that much power and that propensity for issuing false information would have no trouble whatever in constituting himself a world dictator. Any self interest group can use that power.
m. We must emphasize that the inefficiency of the police makes them resort to falsifying records to maintain their own status and that falsifying records knowingly is their way of life. They use these to incite judges to issue wiretaps and to begin incursions on innocent people with whom they want to get even. The point is that they use a DOSSIER system today that is antipathetic to all civil rights and that they falsify records and abuse their power.
2. You have of course winning suits as a purpose here. I do not. I expect that as an incidental. My purpose here can be very clearly stated. This world cannot be sane so long as it has a Third Dynamic and Fourth Dynamic insanity called falsely reporting corrupt police running amok in it. All civilizations go criminal via their police. My purpose is to eradicate the power and authority of Fascist police everywhere before they are used to totally enslave this planet. My purpose and mission in this is to bring sanity to this planet. It cannot exist so long as self interest groups have ready to hand corrupt and unprincipled police forces and agencies. Thus they must be reformed and rapidly while there is still enough breathing space to do the job, not after some new Hitler has come to power.
THEREFORE THE COURSE OF THESE POLICE AND AGENCY SUITS MUST HEAVILY CONTAIN PR IN ITS HIGHEST PROFESSIONAL AND EXPERT FORM IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH OUR OWN MISSION ON THIS PLANET.
Our legal and any legal authority issued must keep in mind that we are not just suing police. We are making a saner planet.
