ANTI-SCIENTOLOGY ACTIVITIES: INTELLIGENCE TRENDS AND PURPOSE
(Excerpted from a despatch of 25 February 1968.)
I have reason to believe Sir William Carr, etc., are no longer planning individual removal of dissident elements via “Mental Health” and psychiatric shock.
The essence, apparently, of their planning originally was to seize finance control over nations and make them subservient—which they have done—and attain and secure their political dominance by the removal of civil liberty and potential rivals or opponents by “psychiatric care.” We became an opponent unwittingly, knowing nothing of their plans, by offering truly effective mental treatment and opposing violence. We therefore were an unwitting threat to these paranoiac plans. They have been so ineffective in eradicating us and we have been so effective in invalidating psychiatry that it would seem their present inactivity is due to a probable shift of planning.
They are not supporting Robinson (UK Minister of Health). They have allowed their “Mental Health Association” network over the world to become insolvent. Knowing the training received by US and UK intelligence agents, if Carr & Co. had asked their advisors “Now that psychiatric control seems blocked, are there any other types of control which would remove leaders and opponents and objectors to our rule?” these advisors, from their text books, would have said, “Yes, the Japanese stage 3 phase of conquest was to use opium addiction on all potential leaders. One can remove dissident elements by cultivating dope addiction in their sons and society.”
Recently there has been a number of odd cases of highly placed doctors, etc., distributing to school children and adults quantities of LSD, etc., without charge on various pretexts. Supportive data exists that there is a dope addiction campaign in progress.
Thus, at an educated guess, these finance czars have shifted the direction of control planning from psychiatric uses.
You can bowl over any psychiatric or “mental health” group without fear of reprisal.
Our aim is not to destroy these men. They are like a cur dog barking at a fire engine. You don’t wreck a fire engine just to run over a cur dog. Our aim is to remove these men only as opponents of Scientology.
By continuing to survive we are accomplishing this. By thwarting press, economic and legislative attacks by various means we further discourage their planning and hostility. They cannot in any event succeed in their plans.
Intensify our search for opponents, not considering we have found all sources, and obtain all possible information on them which may lead to the same or another power group.
Do not permit a letdown or dispersal or slow of our Intelligence section. Intelligence uses are not well understood by our executives. Intelligence is the process of informing one’s command area of the plans, characteristics and crimes of all opponents to one’s own activity and purpose.
We have not begun to use our intelligence.

There are no insane. There are only the physically ill.
“Insanity” is a non-existent malady invented to mystify and horrify the public.
Any person who looks or acts irrational is either
(a) Physically ill and in suppressed pain and agony or
(b) Is in terror at being declared “insane.”
There is no illness one could call “insanity.” To “treat” it by electric shocks or brain operations is only to brutalize a person suffering from easily recognizable medical symptoms or to confirm his terrors.
It is time this political barbarism ended.
It is time the psychiatrist selling the horrors of “insanity” and using torture and murder to “handle it” was named what he is: a terrorist obtaining money by alarm and threat.
To kill the insane as a political policy now obviously favored by many officials, using torture and murder disguised as “treatment” is to ignore utterly the first principles of government—to protect its people—and to violate the most basic teachings of Christianity and human decency.
When a man or woman is physically ill of some curable sickness and is acting oddly, to then say he or she is “insane” and throw the person into an institution where no medical treatment or clinic is available and damage the person’s body further by barbarous tortures is of course the act of a brute.
To take a person who is exhausted emotionally by upsets in life and say he or she is “insane” and then crush the person with this invalidation and use “treatment” to destroy his body (when a few days rest was all that was needed) is an unreasonable act. “Insanity” because of his “genes” is no reason to castrate and sterilize as it has never been proven at all.
The “problem of insanity” must NOT be perpetuated and increased just so some terrorists posing as doctors can obtain vast sums from governments.
There is no such malady as “insanity.”
Hundreds of millions of dollars, millions of research hours have failed to find such an illness as “insanity.”
There are vitamin deficiencies, broken and unset bones, fractured skulls, tumors, physical and emotional exhaustion, any of which when treated, result in a “sane” person.
So let us end this gigantic hoax, the greatest lie in the 20th Century. There is no illness called “insanity.” It is a symptom of other recognizeable, curable common ills.
Let’s treat the sick and outlaw terrorists and false advisors and make this a far better, far safer world.

(Taken from 2 LRH advices written on 21 March 1969 and 10 April 1969 concerning a mission that was fired to have the treatment of committed psychiatric patients taken over from psychiatrists by medical doctors. The instructions below detail a campaign for the mission to carry out.)
HCOB 12 March 1969 PHYSICALLY ILL PCS AND PRE OTS
Psychiatrists are torturing sick people who could be cured if real medical means were available in institutions WHICH THEY ARE NOT. See HCOB 12 March 1969 PHYSICALLY ILL PCS AND PRE OTS.
This fact must be stated over and over and over and over (with demonstrations to doctors and to press), paraphrased:
“The insane are really sick people in suppressed agony. They can be cured easily using ordinary medical doctor treatment of usual illnesses. But not by psychiatrists. There is no further reason to kill the insane. The word is meaningless.”
This approach can catch on.
THE REAL TARGET
I received a report indicating that legislation to require a physical before commitment is to be urged. This is okay for publicity only.
The target of the mission is more, of course, than publicity. I actually intend to force in legislation over the world that every mental home or institution must have a fully equipped clinic with a staff of actual medical doctors.
This bares the ugly facts that:
A. Mental patients receive no medical care.
B. Mental institutions have no medical equipment.
C. Psychiatrists are only called MDs, they are not in actual fact capable of bandaging a cut finger and could not practice.
D. Psychiatry has no curative or healing intentions.
E. As psychiatric patients are merely medically ill this makes the above a crime of magnitude.
If we can FORCE equipment and MDs into institutions they will find the patients suffering from tooth breakage and spinal damage caused by shock. This will convince them the patient was physically ill in the first place, which they were.
The intent of this mission is not in fact publicity. By getting the backing of equipment firms this mission is to crush the real action through Parliament. This mission is a heavy hussar, actual fact mission. It is to:
A. Publicize and effect medical action in institutions and
B. Popularize and get used Dianetics by MDs.
Touch Assists are not only used in Scientology orgs. Amongst MDs they can also dig that process!
If we depend on “newspapers” (propaganda agencies for intelligence services) we will limit our action.
Equipment firms and MDs can be spurred into action by interplaying them and using their parliamentary contacts. This can be done without press if it comes to that.
The essence of any such campaign is “who can make dough out of it” to be as crude as it really is.
If you hit the equipment houses and get them to hit MDs and Parliament you will actually force the condition into existence and there’s bye-bye psychiatry. Get all the publicity you can and I am sure you will. But shove that mission into action to attain the factual accomplishment of all institutions with total MDs + Dianetics and that finishes psychiatry.
Press, as you know, is a broken comm line in many instances. So this is not primarily a press mission.
It’s a medical equipment house conspiracy to sell a jillion pounds worth of equipment and put real MDs into institutions. It’s for real.
Put this mission into the field, to hell with press, and use it to undermine, press or no press, the whole psychiatric position. In essence it is an insurgency using finance and carrots to right the wrongs of mental health. But it’s in MEST, not press.
That’s the WHOLE campaign. It’s actually a major breakthrough. Simple but actual fact. One hell of a discovery. Psychiatric claptrap about genes and ids is a lot of delusion. The people are simply ill. Medical equipment firms will back this to the limit.

HCO POLICY LETTER OF 3 FEBRUARY 19691
For a long while we have not had an exactly stated policy on building a public image. We have just been ourselves and done our jobs and hoped somebody would catch on. This is basically what protected us. And we should keep doing it.
But the time has come to also build a public image as an outflow publicity action.
The image is:
SCIENTOLOGISTS ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE CLEANING UP THE FIELD OF MENTAL HEALING AND EFFECTIVELY HANDLING MENTAL HEALTH ON THE PLANET.
Note that it is dual. We will handle the first part of it first, “cleaning up the field of mental healing.” It is a dirty, inhuman, rotten field, full of graft, misappropriation, phony authoritarianism and betrayal. Because it is like this we get a backflash from it. We are the only ones in it who have clean hands and effective technology. So we have no choice but to NOISILY clean it up. That builds that much of the image. By uniting with other civic, humanitarian, and civil- and human-rights groups we can make an organized progress.
For the second part, we are already doing it to a degree. “Effectively handling mental healing on the planet” is what we are being effective in doing. But we don’t make enough public image with it. We keep building the image to Scientologists. We must study how to do it outside.
We have clean hands. We are effective. We dedicatedly do our jobs well. We must keep on doing this.
But we have to find more PUBLIC ways to SAY so.
It would also be a good policy to have two PROs. One specializes and plans to clean up the field of mental healing and grabs allied-organization support, holds committee meetings, works on crusades about it, gets close to top publishers and really scareheads the world or area about the abuses to human rights in the field.
The other PRO works to banner head the successes and the programs to effectively handle mental healing on the planet. He also gets support from allied organizations (different than human-rights attacks) like churches, and gets a crusade going for handling all the mental healing problems, not just using Scientology.
In both instances you have to go civic, go outside Scientology, get support, organize committees, plot out campaigns, work for outside finance, etc.
In handling the above public image policy, you don’t announce the policy.
You use it for a guide to keep pounding variations of the same message.
The policy is expressed in community action, well press covered, not just in statements. Committee meetings, deputations, picketing, big names, events. You figure out the story that will be written, then do it, seeing it gets covered by having the press to hand.
Make all issues hot, exciting, brutal or sensational. Go strictly circus in the type of message.
You can and must ally with real humanitarian and civil-rights groups (getting press coverage for every such contact).
You can and must approach governors, parliamentary committees, big names, big activities and get press coverage for every contact.
Scientology speakers must address groups and say the story which is to appear, not just talk about Scientology.
Plan a program, let it run awhile. The program is based on the policy which is the major target-to make that public image. When that program damps out, get a new program. It takes a while to beat a program into the public mind. They last a few months.
This is almost standard PRO work. The press prints “hard” news. Hard news is an event, a meeting, the formation of something, an attack, a campaign.
It is not a statement.
You can and must seize the attention of the press in your area, not to defend Scientology, but to hammer home the above public image by forwarding crusades and campaigns that carry the message. Then providing events of your own manufacture. Then seeing they get reported in the press, on radio and TV. Don’t defend Scientology; attack bad conditions and bad hats.
It is a dismal flub to force a parliament to consider a bill outlawing psychiatry and then provide no other event about it or press coverage. It has to be planned, targeted. You have to have other groups start talking, public meetings, a deputation to the governor.
Build up Scientology celebrities that can speak and meet the public in your area.
And in doing all this, don’t tear up the Scientology org or distract it too much or you will not have any money to do the job with. You will have lost what you’re trying to save.
PRO is an energetic, imaginative fiery-eyed function. It has to be hot-hot on getting compliance, scheduling and events.
PRO should know all about targets, dev-t, and this PL.
Scientology has been the object of enemy PRO campaigns of a professional level for years. Study if you like the stunts he pulled. How did he do it? Just by using names, connections and press. So reverse the action. Do it far better. Our end product is a sane planet. His was a dead one. So with all the theta in our lines and purpose, Scientology PRO to the PUBLIC can be ten-thousand times as effective and worthwhile.
This public image can and must be built if this planet is to survive at all.
