What is called an “Intelligence Hypothesis” (working intelligence theory for a given situation) is of vital necessity in extending an org’s reach and economizing on action and work while increasing effectiveness.
So far we have been using an “Intelligence Hypothesis” I developed in 1965. Taking all channels of attack on us country by country, I found the cycle of attacking sources was (a) Income Tax (b) Health Dept or Agency (c) Immigration and (d) a type of press.
Moving this up to an International level, and trying to find out who could have that much influence the Intelligence Hypothesis I formed was that it would have to be a member of the World Bank with psychiatric connections or who planned usages of psychiatry as part of world control.
We used this to narrow and target our searches. It led us to WFMH and the NAMH. And it served us well. But it did not lead all the way until this year.
We found the central handler (one who orders operatives and operations) and proved it by numerous correspondences we were given. The track on this was started by a bit of flair (insight). And it has proved out absolutely. The person is “Mary Appleby” Secretary of the National Association of Mental Health of England. It is she who writes and phones her contacts to start attacks on Scientology.
Her uncle (just now deceased) was OTTO NIEMEYER of the World Bank.
So that finally ends off the 1965 Intelligence Hypothesis as totally correct.
It has gotten us this far.
But in getting there, new data has shown up.
Brilliant work in tracing the origins of the WFMH disclosed it and the NAMH to have NAZI origins. Goerings Cousin, Villinger, others others were at the root of Naziism in Germany and brought Hitler to power! They started the death camps and they not Hitler ordered the extermination of Jews.
Racial purity, genes, Man is an animal, etc were originated (and still held to) by this psychiatric group.
In 1936 they dominated the Beers organization (NAMH).
In 1948, fleeing before war criminal hunts, these people formed the WFMH in London.

We were fooled into thinking it was Communistic because they also penetrated Russia. Pavlov was one of them! (Trained at the University of Leipzig.)
We thought it went Russia to West. Actually that is because it went Nazi to Russia and Nazi to West. Both Russia and the West are internally dominated in the field of psychiatry by the original Nazis. So it could look as though it were coming in from Russia.
The third party between East and West could be the Neo-Nazi!
So we need a new working theory to extend what we now know.
The Nazi had three principle channels into the world.
Intelligence. Nazi intelligence was the largest and most effective intelligence organization the world ever knew. Many texts exist on this. After WW I they hid their files, brought them up to date about 1928 and brought Hitler to power. They had agents by the thousands in every nation – they set up Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland and France to fall by penetration at the top. Hitler won those countries after they had been won by Intelligence. His force of arms was a disruption to intelligence take overs (geo-politics).
Drugs. The Germans had total domination of the world’s drug industry. Their chemists and firms covered the globe. They even sought political extension by barganing [sic] new drug cures.
Psychiatry and Psychology. Leipzig is the source of the animal and reflex theories now believed and taught all over the world. Nazi racial purity, gene theories etc are taken from German psychiatry and psychology. German Psychiatrists gas chambered 300,000 insane before Hitler, originated the orders about Jews, etc. Hitler only okayed them. This kill-think is now in use in every country – gene theory – must sterilize and kill. Psychiatric atrocities now disclosed in England and elsewhere are Nazi practices. The death camp techniques used to exterminate masses were psychiatric.
NEW WORKING HYPOTHESIS
Apparently there exists somewhere a Nazi Memorial or plan to conquer the world.
By intelligence infiltration of governments, drug addiction and dependency and using psychiatry to eliminate political undesireables and minorities, a group is bent on world political conquest.
When Nazi Germany was militarily defeated, the intelligence operatives and files were left “in place” in other countries, the Nazi Chemists were left in the seized drug firms abroad, the psychiatric “empire” still existed overseas.
At the defeat of Germany these three networks were not wiped out abroad but left them in place.

Many military officers in allied services were financially well connected – related to bankers or were bankers.
These intelligence, drug personnel and psychiatric network files passed into financial hands.
The German Mark rose as the only strong European currency after WW II. West Germany now has most of the world’s gold or at least large hoards of it.
NEW INTELLIGENCE HYPOTHESIS
NAZIISM WAS CONTINUED ON THREE NETWORKS AS A MEANS OF WORLD CONQUEST.
We see that no one arrests psychiatry for murder, mayhem, fraudulent money collection. This could only be done by intelligence type control of government figures. Key positions worked in the German sector (as did Appleby and almost every other political person who attacked us in England). It follows this should be true in the US, Anzo, Spain, South Africa, etc – that our opponents have intelligence background either of their own country or Germany. These political mouthpieces have ex or current intelligence background. And as this is turning out to be a Fascist network, they have discoverable Fascist connections.
Psychiatric opponents are all part of the Nazi connected WFMH or NAMH. They are also, some of them, intelligence connected and many are German in name or origin. Their technology and what they urge is pure Fascism straight out Nazi death camps.
Drug firms are ex-German or German connected. They finance or support the Nazi networks. They also are turning the West to drug addiction.
Finance networks exist to crush other currencies and elevate the German currency and look to the other three networks to politically pave the way.
Now this is theory. There is much data to support it. We can document the earlier working theory. Appleby is a Nazi pure and simple. So is the WFMH and the NAMH as all they advocate is Nazi.
There is negative proof of political control by intelligence. Governments seem powerless to arrest or clean up mayhem, murder, theft, etc conducted by psychiatry.
German psychology is taught in every university. Even Dewey the “great American Educator” was indoctrinated at Leipzig. Nazi policy and political tactics are beginning to show in the west.

Actually the networks are very frail, very prone to exposure.
If this Intelligence Hypothesis is true, it is of great use to us. For instance – head of FDA attacks us. Action – run back his Fascist background and connections.
We should test out this theory.
The attacks on Scientology are directed by Appleby.
We are attacked because if we proved psychiatry false by introducing a true mental science we would destroy their political terror weapon.
There are then four networks in all, as we must include International banking.
The four must be run from somewhere, possibly privately not governmentally from West Germany.
If this theory is true then every attacker has one or more of four connections. Intelligence, psychiatric, drug and banking.
To make even further headway on making a saner planet we should test out this new theory and see if it doesn’t lead us to a new origin point for world distress. We may even be looking at the real 3rd party of East-West tension that gives us the threat of atomic war.
Needless to say, police usually side with Fascists and would tend to be blind to this theory. So it may very well be up to only us.
However Fascism is a very dirty word in the world and has many opponents.
The 1965 theory got us to the handler of attacks on in the UK and Commonwealth.
Let’s see where this new theory gets us.

SUBJECT: RON’S JOURNAL 1969 NO.3 POLITICAL TREATMENT
I’ve been studying the state of psychiatry and there can now be no doubt whatever that their “treatment” is political treatment and should be called such.
Electric shocks if not given show patients would leave 6 weeks earlier.
Brain “operations” result in total loss of body coordination and a bright normal being is turned into a drooling blob of flesh, unable even to retain urine. They live only briefly when they do not die at once on the operating table.
The only precedent for such “operations” is Hitler’s action in doing it much more lightly to 800,000 persons to make “farm slavery” or zombies.
The political color command and control of parliaments and legislatures by psychiatry are evident in the easy seizure without trial laws being passed or in the hypocritical actions like Ronald Reagan’s new bill in California that was hailed in the press as giving “rights” to patients in asylums (comparable to Geneva’s Prisoner of War Code) to refuse such treatment but the actual bill says in small print that the “doctor” can refuse any of these rights at his sole discretion. This equals a sentence to death without trial or even a crime.
In Dianetics insanity is shown to be common physical illnesses, yet asylums have no medical facilities. Dianetics can handle insanity with relative ease once the physical injuries and illnesses of the patient are cured medically or when the patient is only lightly ill. A new breakthrough on this is now being taught real MDs in England by a team I trained.
So there is an easy cure of insanity in ordinary medical treatment of broken, badly healed bones, bad kidneys, etc., plus easy Dianetic auditing.
Dianetics has been available and proven for 20 years. Yet psychiatric front groups have been able to command sufficient political action to prevent its use, instead getting bills passed to easily seize anyone, torture and kill him.
Thus the Western countries are seen to refuse actual treatment and legalize inhuman torture and brutality.
Psychiatric treatment is actually psychiatric political treatment, nothing more, to rid the world of anyone who might disagree.
Nelson Rockefeller’s “youth stockades” are for youths who might become delinquent, it says right there in the founding papers.
In Arizona federal judges sentence delinquents to electric shock or death for “being turbulative.”
Insanity is now defined as anyone who disagrees with the social autonomy.
The handwriting is plain. Only the government supports psychiatry. The public by survey stays thoroughly away from them. Death camps like the one just found in Cardiff are situated strategically over the West. Hitler at least wasn’t pretending to help anyone. He just wanted them dead.
So psychiatric activities consist of political treatment. That is very certain now.
This was the deadly secret we in Scientology might have found out and which made them terrified of us, ridicule us, fight us and spend over 2 million dollars to try unsuccessfully to get rid of us.
Over the world they were running death camps.
A few times they missed and certain political actions came to light — Ezra Pound the poet, Governor Long of Louisiana, General Walker of Little Rock, managed to become known about before they were depersonalized. So be mystified no longer. We weren’t up against any mental treatment — only violent brutality properly known as political treatment.
So that’s what we ought to brand it.
These dumb birds were trying to form a total police state, but the police hate them and the army deserts at every chance. How do you form a police state with the police and army on the side of the population?
That’s not their only mistake. Their biggest one was attacking us.
The commies would have won in the end.
Revolt is not far off if political treatment is allowed to continue.
Some of the “very best people” are involved.
If we can expose and eradicate this bestial tendency in Western government before it is too late, the society will not fall into the chaos desired for a communist takeover. It’s our one chance. Expose them fully and fast.
If we delay, the mobs will tear these government leaders limb from limb for other causes than political treatments.
If exponents of death camps can be gotten out, Western governments may yet survive.
Remember that Pavlov 1870 and Wundt 1879 invented these technologies and every nation that used their work-Russia, Austria, Germany, Poland, has ceased to exist, their leaders brutally slain and the governments replaced by maniacs. So it is no idle prediction that the West, using now Wundt and Pavlov, are very close in their turn to going down in flames.
Man just doesn’t like being called an animal or treated like one. He revolts.
As he did in Russia, Poland, Germany, Austria, and got real beasts in charge instead.
The “best people” in the West who support psychiatry and look to it to seize their mob leaders and “clean up dissident elements” had better try to remember their history since 1789.
A lot of “best people” then and since have been made awfully dead at the hands of mobs.
This is not the Middle Ages. It is the twentieth century. Human rights not death camps are the fashion today.

Subject: Ron’s Journal 1969 No. 2 THE OPPOSITION
I have put in quite a lot of intensive study in the last few months on the character and anatomy of the opposition. And I have found some amazing phenomena.
Evidently what seems to be going on on a very broad basis in the West is a social evolution that is not pretty.
Russia apparently “won” World War II. She acquired 750,000,000 new population in conquered areas. The West betrayed the expatriate governments of these seized countries (Poland, China, Czechoslovakia etc.) and the crime has come home to haunt them. The West finally woke up to the fact it had an enemy not an ally.
The continual cold war needling of Russia has pressured certain elements in Western governments into TURNING FASCISTS.
The natural conflict of Communism and Fascism has been pressed into being in some areas in some Western governments.
Fascism is “Industry operating in collusion with the military” according to the text books.
A Fascist has certain personality trails. He tries to obliterate minorities. He burns books. He seeks “legal” means to seize any person who disagrees and hold or murder him. He does physical experiments on people.
The Fascist has the delusion that ideas can be crushed by force.
Such small elements in Western governments have turned to the psychiatrist as a method of seizing. torturing and killing people. In the U.S. Civil Defence Manuals under “Psychology” it says the role is to notice anyone who tries to do anything about a nuclear bombing or who is blaming the government and seize him and put him in a stockade. No mention of soothing the population or caring for emotional upset is made.
These fascist elements were looked to to resist Communism and so have gained some power. They probably don’t even think of themselves as anything but “patriots”.
The Communist elements are infiltrating such areas and attacking such officials heavily.
The Western population is overwhelmingly on the side of human rights, so these politicians are against the stream of public opinion.
If the Communists can force these fascist elements to act against public opinion (such as attacking Scientology and other minorities) they can show the public that their government has no Cause worth fighting for, that it is destructive and mad.
This effectively turns the people against their own governments.
It is a vital consideration (according to all their literature) that an insurgent must be able to operate freely amongst the people without being informed on or given over to authorities. If the government by doing crazy and unpopular things (such as an attack on innocent people) it will become distrusted and detested and a Communist insurgent will find support among the people.
The stage is then set for Communist insurgency and government overthrow.
The odd picture then greets us when we suspect our enemies, of a fascist inner-government clique with Communists mixed up in it.
The Fascists, lied to and needled by Communist elements then act like mad dogs against the wrong targets in the society, become hated by the public and no longer find public support or obedience. The Communist is then able to subvert the entire country by propaganda or insurgency.
Right now the fantastic desertion role of Western troops shows they do not support their own governments. When the show down comes, possibly it will be another 14 July 1789 when on “Bastille Day” the National Guard of France turned at once to the side of the people. And for some years the heads of the “best people” (meaning the fascists of that day) rolled into baskets.
People do NOT ask what the revolutionary is going to do. That he is overthrowing a hated government is enough to keep the public uncooperative at best or in active revolt.
The causes of revolt are unpopular unfair and brutal government punishment and actions and oppressive taxation, plus some element active in promoting revolt.
Julian Paget’s “Counter Insurgency Campaigning” Faber and Faber, 24 Russell Sq., London, and James Eliot Cross’s “Conflict in the Shadows”, Constable and Co Ltd., London, are two excellent recent books on Communist activities and Insurgency over the world. I wish politicians would read them.
Communists are not attacking us. They are stirring Fascist elements up so they will attack us.
This involved action then causes the Fascist to look crazy. He is seen to be attacking a minority church group which has done nothing, causes him to seize innocent books and generally act like a Fascist.
The people see these acts as wrong headed and the government loses credit.
Thus, when we investigate these actions we find fascists running death camps and commies stirring it up.
It is a pretty dizzy sort of scene.
For 19 years we have been demonstrating that we help people and have the first truly effective mental technology If we won probably both the Fascist and the Communist would lose out since both are fanatics.
Remember that we are not the only ones being attacked. So the cumulative effect of their attacks makes the Fascist “prove” to the population there is no good reason to defend “such a government” and every reason to knock it down.
By deteriorating the government’s cause the potential revolutionary can greatly improve his cause. And one day the government goes to pieces. In the ensuing commotion the Communist feels he can take over.
Not every militaristic government is a fascist government. Far from it. Militarism is a condition, not an ideology. In self defense several nations have shifted over to militarism to defend themselves against all this confusion. Having done so they feel more secure. On the other hand Fascism is a very particular frame of mind — oppress minorities, burn books, seize torture and kill people on some flimsy pretext, fatten the industrialist by heavy government expenditures, these are the primary characteristics of Fascism. But above all it believes all ideas can be fought with force and only force. Getting a better idea or strengthening their own Cause so that it will appeal to their people is seldom done by Fascists. At best they seek some new foe to distract their people.
Fascism is too old hat. It won’t wear.
Our opponents are a small clique running against the trend of the world. They will lose.

Subject: Ron’s Journal 1969, No. 1
I have been studying the subject of modern government. As you know I was trained in this subject (in one of the Universities the reporters say I never went to).
Nearly every major country in the “free” world has been sporadically at war, by which I mean guns and soldiers, in one place or another since 1945.
Only one country has not. That is Russia. Her 2,000,000 man army, amongst all major armies, has only had two brief actions — Hungary and Czechoslovakia. Instead she engages in guerrilla support or insurgency attacks by local partisans over the world. She is engaged in this and continual propaganda attacks. By this she has kept in action all other major armies serving as “security forces”, in “brush fire wars” or revolts.
Obviously the lesson is plain. To defend an area one must attack.
All other major actions are fighting within their own territories or on those of allies. They are fighting on their own soil or that of allies. They are losing. There isn’t a ripple in the Russian homeland.
So in this universe the winning tactic must be to attack. The losing tactic must be to only defend.
These “brush wars” are inflating the funds of rather extravagant western powers. It cost France £1 million a day to combat (and lose to) guerrilla forces in Algeria. It is costing the US $40 billion to $50 billion a year to “police” Vietnam. That was the total national budget a few years ago! Thus Russia is wrecking western currency and economics as well.
But the main thing I have scouted out is that these guerrillas or insurgency forces who start these “brush wars” have to have a powerful cause. It has to be powerful enough to attract large portions of the local population.
The “free” world invalidates these insurgent causes. But a cause great enough to bear one’s breast to western machine guns, to starve and die for, must be quite a cause.
If such a cause can generate such local support and eventually win over whole populations, then it must be founded on real, not imaginary, abuses.
No guerrilla force agitator can build total support with empty slogans. There has to be sound solid reasons that each supporting member of the population can know for truth out of his own personal experience.
So there have to be abuses on the part of the governing forces. There must have been abuses for a long time. And nobody in the government did anything about them. And so [slogans or no slogans,] lies or no lies, there had to be real factual abuses. Enough to bring about revolution.
Western powers have not been subject to any “divine doubt”. They know they are so right it hurts. They never seem to question their own actions or procedures. They just back them up with guns and troops.
IT HAS NEVER OCCURRED TO ANY WESTERN POWER THAT THEY THEMSELVES NOW HAVE NO ADEQUATE CAUSE.
Obviously if a prime requisite of guerrillas is a cause, then what’s needed is a bigger and better cause on the part of the Government.
And it isn’t there. And its lack is costing them money, men, the cold war.
In Kenya they defeated the Mau Mau, gave loyalty certificates to a lot of the population — then lost the whole country and the holders of the certificates were killed. All for lack of a government cause, strong enough to be fought for.
So, this makes us review, in light of our own experience, the whole subject of western government.
One finds that they are governments by pressure groups, which is to say, vested interests. Some time ago they ceased to be governments of the people and became governments by the pressure group, of the pressure group and for the pressure group.
These pressure groups (such as the psychiatrist or the “international banker”) are often very vicious, quite mad. With bribery, terrorism, false reports, and 3rd Party actions such groups drive the politician into attacking the population, whether by easy seizure of persons or oppressive taxation or merely over-regulation and over-inspection.
In 1945 with the advent of atomic bombs, governments could no longer meet the definition of a sovereign power which is “protect the land and people from foreign aggression”. There is no real defense against these bombs and 12 nations are now possessors of them.
So for this and other reasons, governments apparently cased to protect the individual and the average social group. Instead they begun (in their derangement) to attack them. In small ways or large, the attacks were real. They required defending against in slow, biased courts at great expense.
It was almost as if governments in most cases were trying to force a revolutionary action into being.
The main problem of the individual or group, harassed, left without protection, over-regulated, subjected to abuses without any protection from the government, is to keep from becoming a revolutionary individual or group.
In our own case, if we had less stability, we would have joined forces with some revolutionary group, driven there by harassment. We are, in policy and fact, refusing to become revolutionary.
Governments, responding to pressure groups, would have us driven underground and into the arms of some insurgent activity.
Now if we experience this, we are not alone. Attacked for nothing, we tend to individuate or introvert. But if you call around to other groups you will find we are more successful in defending ourselves and are suffering less attack than they are.
Cheerily, we would have helped our governments for the last two decades. We had real help to offer. Even our support as a religious group would have been valuable and often was. We also had real technical help for them in their most pressing problems. And every action from any government so far is not only no protection but also outright attack. For no crime not even a
misdemeanor, we have been ridiculed, mocked, fought and knocked around by our governments who followed the orders of the pressure groups.
So these Western governments are capable of gross abuses. Governments that attack writers, religions, peaceful social groups are never long for this world. When they attack Scientology, the highest level of mental tech on the planet, and actively support and finance the sordid seizure, torture and death of psychiatric victims they must be utterly mad themselves.
So what’s this cause they offer? Some insurgent group comes up with any cause at all and the population goes for it.
The law on this is that WHEN FACED WITH A CORRUPT AND OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT, THE POPULATION TENDS TO JOIN ANY GROUP WHICH THAT GOVERNMENT ATTACKS WITHOUT EVEN ASKING FOR WHAT THE ATTACKED GROUP STANDS.
In other words they are all being attacked so they identify themselves with anyone else being attacked.
If the attacked group has shown spirit and defiance and attacked the government in its turn you then have a revolution.
As oppressive governments have no real cause anyone that anyone would really fight for (who wants to protect the puppets of a corrupt pressure group?) then any popular insurgent cause is adequate to rally a population.
Our problem then is to refuse utterly to be forced into the position of revolutionaries. It is hard to do.
Somehow we must get these governments to clean up their own houses before they are carried down by the outraged mob. The end of that would be complete chaos.
The main area where they err is in attacking their own people. Justice is not for the poor. Any false report by any of these depraved pressure groups can get any individual or group into severe trouble. It costs vast sums of money to defend in modern courts. The average person does not have it. Therefore human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream.
The very basis of human rights is freedom from false accusations and from brutality and punishment without offense.
Somehow, government by prejudice and false report must end in the West or the West itself will end.
By bringing about real human rights, perhaps there would be enough cause in the West to be worth fighting for.
Somehow society in the West must be revitalized after decades of arduous degradation.
It will not be an easy feat. It is very hard to save a being or government who is bent whole-heartedly on self-destruction.
We are trying to get these governments to clean up their own houses and so preserve themselves.
We are trying to get the society to revitalize after decades in the mind of decayed animalism.
It’s a large order. But remember this, if we do not succeed then it is the end of the free “world and the probable end of everything we know of civilization.
On the other hand there are social groups and people without count who, given liaison with one another and a uniting of their sphere of influence, will help us.
We must try very hard to wipe out these attacks on us and refuse steadfastly to be forced into revolutionary activity or into the arms of insurgents organizing even now to destroy every government in the West.
If we, with no crimes on our hands, can be remorselessly attacked, if the bad hats only are protected and their crimes ignored, then we have a gauge of the task before us.
We are already reversing this trend.
We do have a chance of succeeding all the way. We are the only group in the West that is standing its ground and winning.

CONFERENCE with The Guardian, LRH Aide, LRH Communicator, Legal WW, Guardian Communicator and the Head of Intelligence Branch 5, Office of LRH
This action has to do with the recent adventure and the current suits on the London Daily Mail; has to do with the Newspaper Proprietors Group or whatever you call that activity and is very short and sweet.
I just reviewed this situation with the Guardian and I find out as follows: That a criminal act has occurred and that the publications of materials copyrighted and classified materials have been published in this newspaper belonging to this particular group. Now this makes not a civil suit — this is a criminal act and I just thought about this and it seemed to me to be relatively simple to classify the subject and to label the head of the Newspaper Proprietors Group as accessory to crime.
Now exactly what that crime would be is at least receiving stolen goods. Now I’m perfectly prepared to put in a claim to the police that on my return certain classified papers were missing and pursuant to that that these classified papers — which were NOT for public issue and which were para-Scientology and did not represent Scientology and so forth, had been filched and that they were accepted and purchased apparently by these proprietors and that they have published them in first one and then another of their newspapers showing that there is association between those two papers and they are purchasing stolen goods and making use of them for their own profit.
In addition to that, that they sought to bar out the principal witness and plaintiff — not necessarily plaintiff, but an interested party to the libel suit against them, without whom they
thought they might succeed in defending that libel suit.
In view of the fact that their libel has caused a fantastic amount of damage to date in terms of financial recompense and is attempting to build a false image of a man and an activity and an organization, their expenses on this could be considered to be relatively high. So therefore they did undertake to send Younghusband to Rhodesia to get me imprisoned or shot and then if that failed, denied re-entry into the United Kingdom and then vilified and discredited so that the testimony would not count in this suit.
And this is sub justice and it is not intimidation of witnesses — it is the intent to kill one. And that is a criminal offense and Sir William Carr and Cecil King are, at the very least, accessories if not one directors of these crimes. And this is a criminal matter and therefore of great interest to us. Now I think it should be explored on that basis and we do what we can on that basis, and see where we get. Okay?
Now there is one other action here. There is exchange of policy — I have found this to be the case in carrying out investigations of noisome and slanderous remarks — they are very often invented, as one knows, but they come quite commonly from criminal sources.
Now that was the first datum I had on this subject in 1954 — I found out in counting noses that the people who had done the most — twenty-one people — who had done the most to damage Dianetics had criminal records and seventeen of them I verified. I just got tired at seventeen and said this is too many. Now this was very interesting, because subsequent history of these people is also very interesting.
They all came a cropper with fantastic spectacularity before they got through. So I never worried about splinter groups and haven’t since. You notice this thing called “the Prophets” or something like that — well that’s just typical of the splinter group.
You notice we don’t hear anything of this Watson – “Amprinistics” or whatever he was, we don’t hear anything of him any more and so on. I don’t worry about splinter groups. What I worry about is entheta — and this is a change of policy.
Something I’ve just discovered. That in view of the fact that they have criminal backgrounds or in view of the fact that investigation will reveal this, our investigation should therefore go forward on the discovery of crime.
In a case of entheta or enturbulation, that we should go forward on this matter to the discovery of a crime as a first action. That we should act on this crime, not use it as blackmail or make some illegal use of it, but just as a public body and reform organization act on this crime, and then when it is acted upon — then we sue. This is about as malicious and vicious perhaps as one could get but then you are suing a discredited source and this would become hallmarked after a while.
They’d say, “The Scientologists must have done that because first he was jailed and then he was sued.” And so that you could lead to an expectancy that if somebody was very ambitious in spreading malicious gossip and rumour against Scientology or its principles, that they would be investigated with an effort to discover a criminal act; that the organization would then act to have them incarcerated and at that time, when they are discredited in this line, they would then be sued for libel and slander. Now I have had to step up the bargaining of Ethics on the public front — that is to say the duress that we apply because we obviously aren’t applying quite enough pressure to cause the people’s banks to behave while we get on with our job.
Now with Ethics lines you see, you’ve got to apply just enough restraint — you don’t ever apply too much restraint — and you don’t apply too little: you’ve got to apply enough restraint.
Well obviously we have Ethics and we are putting it in a public front — we aren’t putting it in with enough velocity. Now, if we expect to get technology in in the world we must then, first, get in Ethics.
Now Ethics springs up as enturbulence against Scientology — when Ethics comes up with enturbulence against Scientology it makes it impossible for us to get on with the job.
Now this is regardless of any operation which comes up, OT Base or any operation of this kind. It’s obvious to me, after my study of four months, that we will have to get in Ethics on a broad social level before we can ever get in technology because these people are just too crazy and it’s like trying to help a wounded buffalo out of a wallow and that is not the same activity.
We say to this fellow, “You’ve got a lot of worries,” and “You have a lot of family trouble,” and that sort of thing.
“Well, we can make you more clever and if you were a bit more clever you could handle your problems.”
And we say this and instantly we get gored. So it’s a case in point.
So this, I’m officially telling you that this is the new policy; it’s on a broad social basis. We concentrate on getting in Ethics and then we follow that up with tech. And that is the policy. And then where possible — where we have discovered a great deal of entheta coming back at us, then we intend to get this handled by investigating it back to a criminal act by the person.
A criminal act is disassociated from the entheta of course but that’s what they are trying to defend or something and we get that and then we put on the pressure publicly to have that person prosecuted for that particular act and then when they have been prosecuted — or are being prosecuted — or are just beautifully discredited at that particular moment, then we serve them with a summons [?] law and order, assault and battery or whatever they did is not of interest to us except to discredit them and then we serve that with a suit for libel or slander.
That seems to me to be a fairly good work-out of it. Now I’ve been cheek by jowl by the water in the wog world all on my [lonesome]. No barricades, no barriers of anything, and I’ll tell you with this much velocity — how I lasted for four months I will never know — I will never know [?] these people were scared stiff of me, they were scared stiff to do anything else and I probably would have gotten away with it all the way if it hadn’t been for this action here in England. But this is obvious to me that Peter Younghusband came down and now this despatch in the hands of Mrs. Draper of the Salisbury Office in which he reports to me the telephone call of Peter Younghusband and my reply to her to stall him off, tell him to come in next Thursday. Now here — this was a waiting action; he was calling me up in beautiful timing to find out if it had happened to me yet, to get the comment, you see. And this was the rumour line and this caught me before the other — before the actual service of this letter. This letter was just nothing you see; it actually refuses to extend my visa beyond its first extension; it had already been extended once.
And the consequences of that are rather fabulous, but in view of the fact that their action denied me the profit of about a quarter of a million pounds worth of deals and jeopardized some fifty thousand pounds worth of assets and brought damage and widespread dismay so as to destroy another quarter of a million pounds worth of good will, which had been built up during that period. I would say that that is not an actionable thing in Civil Court — I would say it is a criminal act, but more important, that is actionable in a Civil Court but the reason it was done comes under the heading of crime.
So my whole proposal here is that we explore and I leave it to you from here on because I’ve got an Organization to get back together again so all I’m doing is winding up my cycle of action on this and you’ve had press to handle, you’ve got public presence to handle, you are now going into Worldwide Ethics — you know we’ll do it here before we move it into anything like OT Base or something like that.
But unless we get Ethics in very broadly, we won’t ever get technology in on this planet. And all I’m doing is ending this cycle of action and giving you my views — or, if you wish to so consider them, orders and instructions with regard to this.
Now I do not say that you can in actual fact implement this act but you can try and you can explore it with some enthusiasm to see if you can’t possibly do this because, if we can pull this trick off, then I see that without any OT machine guns hanging in mid air firing madly, we might be able to get Ethics in, you see, on a planetary basis.
Now we must go in on a gradient so we’ll take it from where we sit at this moment with the primary principles and more forward on this with some success. I wish to point out to you that the world is in sufficiently bad ethics condition as to make not only Scientology but civilization in peril.
It is a very, very sorry situation whereby you have the United States now encroaching on and treading upon the toes of an atomically armed nation, China. You have Russia about ready to turn around and back up China, even though it’s an enemy. You have at this time three forces involved in Africa. You have the Empire — the old Empire — forces from England. You have the resistive white supremacy population and you have the Communist interests which are going to prevent any reasonable solution if they possibly can until war can occur.
And then when war has occurred, then they will take their chances of getting into power. But if they can just lock the situation up — lock it up good until finally it bursts into flames, then they feel they might have a chance of taking over.
Now the reason they want southern Africa is very obvious–its fantastic quantities of wide-open productive land on which enormous quantities of food can be raised; tremendous labour supply in the Bantu, the Mashombe, the Matabele, these people are very hard-working people and under proper direction are quite productive.
The place has not even been tapped with regard to gold and there is probably oil there, the greatest world supply of chrome — there’s a mountain five miles long with is a sold chrome-owner. There’s all these various things. Now, Brazzaville — up in that area — there’s tungsten and they’ve already made a bite on that end of it.
But here’s this fantastic, wealthy, relatively empty land — perhaps the last great empty land then, and here is this perfectly valid labour supply — the African, who at this time is not being well utilized at all; he’s not being utilized really. I know we think he’s enslaved and is in chains and is working like mad. The fact of the matter is he’s sitting rather hopelessly out on the Reserve wishing somebody would put him to work because he hasn’t got enough to eat and he hasn’t the implements or capital with which to develop his tribal lands and he’s in bad shape. So, and also he’s sort of been blocked out of society, he’s not been permitted to participate with the white society. Now all of this adds up to just this — here’s a very large, wealthy land and, just to give you some background here.
All right, holding this up is just one person who has got this thing tied up in a nut — the person who prevents a settlement with England is Jacky Harman, Minister of Information, Tourism and Immigration. Nothing that has struck me — because it naturally would strike me — now he will neither clear up the security — the insecurity inside the Rhodesian government nor act to alleveiate the British situation, but he fears anybody who is anti-Communist.
All a man has to be is anti-Communist and Jacky fires him. Now this has gone to three stubborn anti-Communist personalities — Ivor Benson, a fellow named Haaker and Nigel Bruce Hankey. These three chaps are very, very good, and are experts on this subject and Harman has fired them.
Now in addition to that, he operates with very poisonous influence upon the Prime Minister and the society itself is utterly controlled by his super-secret police which are entirely different to the normal internal police forces and they just stockade anybody at the drop of a hat, he does anything. He is a Goebbels and a Hess all tied up into one nut — there’s one Suppressive and he’s sitting in the middle of the Rhodesian situation, breaking England’s heart, causing fantastic trouble overseas — there he sits.
Now if Mr. Jacky Harman put himself in stockade, I assure you that the entire situation would be solved.
We used to say “Well, its the White Supremacy people of Southern Africa who are stopping it all.” I think if you counted noses in South Africa and Rhodesia — I think if you counted those noses, I think you would find out that you were probably only dealing with a dozen people in all — or less!
I know that in Rhodesia, the Rhodesian Front, is just dying to settle with England, so are the Africans, so are the Asiatics, so are the Coloureds — these people all want to settle and Ian Smith no longer represents, don’t you see, the will of the people.
So here is an Ethics situation which comes down to an individual. Now I don’t know what we need in order to resolve these situations but we needn’t go out on a far flung world front in order to find trouble because we’ve got trouble we can experiment with already.
But I think that Ethics should not introvert onto Scientologists quite so much as it is doing. I think it should extrovert out into society against people who are really non-Scientologists, who are actively harming Scientology — those are the thoughts I have had in regard to this and whether they bear up in long practice or not we have yet to see, but I have had four months here of cheek by jowl observation of the wog world and I find out that they’re not very smart; that they tell very, very weird tales; that they are extremely suspicious, and in absence of factual information they make it up.
They are very information-happy, and I have an instance where the Number Two — probably Viet Nam is Number One, but probably Number Two international situation today I have now found the guy who has got it blocked into a situation that will not resolve — one man, one man! And everyone thinks it’s Smith, you see, they think it’s the Rhodesian Front. They’ve made this mistake so that’s inadequate –let me point this out — inadequate investigation.
There may be somebody had to be in there inside, cheek by jowl with these people to find out this datum and maybe that insight isn’t given to the normal intelligence operative of England or America’s CIA or something like that, but they depend to a marked degree upon the newspaper reporters who themselves are creating a situation in order to serve other masters or write news about it or something like that.
But anyway, I didn’t want to make a speech about it — just pointing out to you that Ethics situations hang up on individuals and the less we generalize, the more [we] particularize, the
better we are. So there’s always a preliminary investigation as to who is it — now we’ve somewhat taken this in that we’ve found out that there were only two directors of the newspaper syndicate but we in actual fact don’t know which one of those to is the Suppressive — it’s not necessarily true that they are both Suppressive. But nevertheless we will move in that direction.
Now we know that they’ve committed a criminal act because they confess to it by using the material.
So what my contribution to this is — my streak of genius on the matter — is the accessories to receiving stolen goods at least and then if there is some way we can make that stick in some fashion and get them under the gun for that, then we follow right in behind with a civil suit on our libel slander. Then perhaps — and I don’t know of any reason why you can’t follow a criminal suit with a civil suit, I think it’s rather common, istn’t it?
Look — now we’ll explore this — probably you’ll have a lot of considering — perfectly all right with me if you hire a seemingly huge […] of barristers or something of the sort — this we couldn’t care less about — understand? Don’t feel that you’re going it alone on this basis, but unless we plough forward on a programme, we will continue to be in some sort of trouble, so let’s test this programme out. Let’s see if we can’t unravel this thing in that way and let’s pilot our way through this thing without any magical occurrences. Okay?
All right — now are there any questions?
Guardian: Well, it’s not a question but I just was thinking that you were saying there that maybe one Suppressive and I would think that would be Cecil King.
Because it was his newspaper that paid [?] to steal material down here and it is his relative that owned the Daily Mail, so there you’ve got two factors that say that Cecil King might be the one.
Oh — you’ll have to tie it up — I don’t even know the position if where a Company can be sued for a criminal act.
Well this might wrap it up, you see. I think he’s thinking right now in terms of the company.
Any other questions?
Legal: [ ]
Well, if you action needs any further investigation, you should instruct your investigators to do so. Now, I don’t know what your investigators have at this particular time on psychiatry but they in actual fact should find a psychiatrist who had made libelous utterances against Dianetics or Scientology or against me and they should find the crime of which he is guilty — they should get him arrested, just one. They should promptly get him arrested for this and they we should sue him.
Now we can make that a pilot project on the lines and this would tend to [cover?] the general situation.
Now when we first came out with this plan of investigation and so forth, we ran into a liability. I want to point that out. That if we did not carry it forward ambitiously and successfully, it would backfire. Well, it’s backfired so therefore we haven’t carried forward ambitiously enough. We’ve not exerted sufficient pressure.
Now the purpose of Ethics is to exert enough pressure to make the exterior duress slightly greater than the interior duress of obeying the bank. And that is the whole secret of discipline. And they commonly over-discipline. It’s very, very interesting that any trouble they have with the Africans in Rhodesia has been that they’re disciplining them but they have relatively few internal pressures to overcome so the external pressure is against somebody who is perfectly willing. And that’s what’s causing the trouble.
For instance, my boy Jamble — he smokes dacca, he gambles and he drinks, mostly native beer, and so forth. Now although I’ve seen him a little bit reeling or his eyes describing slight circles when he fixed them, I have never seen at any moment — oh yes, and I’ve suddenly seen him get eloquent — under a bit of native beer after he’d been out in the afternoon — not one single one of these acts got in the road of him doing his job.
So I used to tell him “Yes, I know Jamble — you’re a good boy even though you do drink and smoke dacca and gamble — that has nothing to do with me, you’re still a good boy.”
And you know he came way up tone arm. I noticed he drank less and I think he stopped smoking dacca entirely. But he didn’t stop gambling, because Master used to give him a pound to go out to the race track with and lose.
Now these boys were all willing, but they’re over-disciplined.
Now the Scientologist, not to make a comparison but the Scientologist is perfectly willing and is at this time by Ethics being over-disciplined, so we are over-disciplining the Scientologist and under-disciplining society and we should reverse that — reverse that very definitely. If anything, under discipline the Scientologist and over-discipline the society.
Now in that direction you’d still win but in the direction we are going we won’t. If you under-discipline a society and over-discipline Scientologists, why, we’ve had it. As a Scientologist
normally is very, very willing.
We’ve got to upgrade the idea of what is a Suppressive, as Suppressives really are nuts. They are really damaging, Suppressives and so forth.You only need a few heads on a pike.
Well, I didn’t want this to be a lecture — this is a conference. Any questions?
Guardian-Comm: I have one more: this guy that came over from England to Rhodesia that instigated having you taken out. What was his name?
Peter Younghusband. London Daily Mail.
Guardian-Comm: Oh, I see.
He has a brother, oddly enough, in Rhodesia — so he was the logical choice.
Guardian-Comm: The Daily Mail, then was the source of his coming to …
Oh yes, and it’s obviously [?]. Now he went to Harman and he told Harman a bunch of lies. And Harman avidly, because I was not for the Communists, accepted these lies and stampeded the Prime Minister with them, who then re-uttered them to a Committee of the Rhodesian Front that knew they were lies, that succeeded in discrediting both Harman and the Prime Minister in the face of their own political party and this will have fantastic repercussions.
Although we are playing around the basis that it was political — it was actually an effort on the part of the group to get off the hook because we can throw some damage at them. But this has been my thinking on it, that’s all.
Anything else? All right.
Oh, these are just verbal instructions. I have made a tape, so that you can review it in case of argument. I won’t bother to review unless there’s an argument because I think it’s all pretty
obvious and I wish to tell you that I’m off that line now, don’t you see — I’m definitely offline.
I was snapped off it rather interestingly — Bonwick took me a tour of the branch and what he’d been doing last night and I snapped straight to Saint Hill totally and frankly it’s been like digging in the mud to dictate out the reports and the letters and finish off this other cycle of action because I’m frankly no longer very interested in it.
I’m interested in right now the Organization; I want to see if it’s functioning all right and I’m going around picking things that are quite obvious and we picked up two or three like, like HCO is full of unanswered despatches — the last Division in the place that should be full uf unanswered despatches. But I understand you just transferred the HCO Area Sec, but now I suddenly spot that this new HCO Area Sec hadn’t had time enough — in fact hasn’t had time enough to let that many papers accumulate, so your new ES Comm/HCO should of course go to the Org Exec Sec or the Org Executive Course straight away and should specialize in the policies of HCO because he didn’t read somewhere along the line that HCO’s communications organization and as particles travel with rapidity and he’s Clear so he will pick it up in an awful hurry.
And next action I found the usual — that Letter Registrar didn’t know that she should look for things she could query and get into real communication with the person so that she would get a proper response. I think I’ve spotted also that they are not stuffing information bits –. For instance, right now I would be stuffing Clear Sec EDs into their outgoing Letter Reg mail. Then the guy’d read it. Any current Clear Sec ED, you see: Clear no. 19 — I’d just stick this in, completely noncommittally. That’s an under-sell.
I’d do something like this but it’s interesting that Joan McNocher doesn’t know how to do this, because she was a specialist on it in Jo’burg — she really carried on a – stuffed into those letters like mad, so it may be being done, but probably the wrong stuff is being stuffed.
We have a new book and also we really do need a book that is a very plain basic public-level book, which explains everything — it’s much harder to write though than any other book that you might think of.
I discovered a new gadget that I might tell you about just in passing, to close you off on another note, entirely non-sequitur.
Somebody has been critical of Scientology, you see. You take a copy of Problems of Work out of your pocket and say, “Here, here’s a book on Scientology. Read that and find out if there’s anything in there to be critical about. Well, go ahead — find something to object to.”
And the guy’s supposed to be looking for something to object to, and of course he starts reading and doesn’t find anything to object to, and he gets interested and it washes it away and that’s a trick — gimmick, but that is also a cousin to getting Ethics in, in general.
Now Ethics WW will undoubtedly be gotten in from OT Base but apparently we’re involved in a problem right this minute and so I think we should get on with it.
Okay, thank you very much for coming in.
