OFFICE OF SPECIAL AFFAIRS NETWORK ORDER
OSA NW ORDER 171
17 February 1988
THE GENUS OF INSANE GOVERNMENTS
(Taken form undated LRH notes. Issued as an OSA NW Order on 17 February 1988.)
Plot a government — any government on Earth today — as you would plot an individual on the tone scale.2.
What do you find?
A murderer, a non-producer, a thing unable to run engrams — in short, an insane person.
The invention of the “official act” as different from a “personal act” was the beginning of governments sufficiently insane to cause war.
Definition of an insane person: An individual who is not personally responsible for his own acts.
Definition of a public official: An individual who is not personally responsible for his own acts.
Result: Insane Government.
