Linda McCarthy – declaration of independence


Linda McCarthy. Talk about the power of truth. You gotta read the whole thing.

May 10, 2010
Doubt Formula:

1. Inform oneself honestly of the actual intentions and activities
of that group, project or org, brushing aside all bias and rumor.

The intentions and activities of the group of people that are
running the C of S are to follow the orders of a person who elected
himself to be the Chairman of the Board of the C of S – namely
David Miscavige. They, as a result have created a hierarchy that
dictates off Source activities (all inclusive of ethics, tech and
admin) and have thus have caused a contraction of Scientology.
While it is understood that the people under Miscavige didn’t start
out with this intention, nor with those activities, stats prove
that they are now fully engaged and are part and parcel to the
problem. At the top of this “management” is David Miscavige.

To wit:

High prices from Mission to CL V Org, to AOSHs, AOs, FSO and
  -Introductory services are cheap (this is about the only service
that is affordable) After that, the prices for training and
auditing become exorbitant and out of reach for your average every
day citizen. If one does make it to the top of the Bridge, prices
at the FSO will bankrupt your non-wealthy public person. There are
a number of public who “sent their (OT VII) materials back” due to
not being able to afford the “6-month refresher”. I don’t have the
actual number, but do know of specifics. Point being, the masses
cannot afford Scientology at any echelon. The intention is to make
it difficult for the masses to acquire Scientology. Probably to
weed out the “less able” as defined by the arrogant upper crust.
The prices bar broad participation in Scientology.
Hammering the public for donations to IAS, ASI, Superpower
Building, Book Campaigns, and Ideal Org Buildings.
  -These 5 mentioned are the 5 off the top of my head. The IAS was
formed as the Church was in peril. That was apparently handled with
the IRS threat put to rest in 1993 (17 years ago). Hundreds of
millions of dollars have been raised, and more continues to be
regged on a daily basis to handle never-ending imminent disasters.
The disasters being communicated about actually create a dangerous
environment for Scientologists. Countless events are held at local
mission and org level (or at people’s houses or businesses) to
raise money needed to stomp out psychiatry, to save France, or to
save Germany, or, or, or.  Hundreds of millions. But psychiatry is
alive and well and has visibly accomplished many of their targets
(get your hands on the booklet Brainwashing and you’ll see). They
have effectively infiltrated the fabric of the U.S. A nearly
obscene amount of money has been raised to handle the anti-Scn
activities in Europe, but these still rage today. The PR of
Scientology in the U.S. is horrible, despite millions upon millions
being raised to improve public opinion and awareness through ad
campaigns and booklets: VM booklets, drug booklets TWTH, CCHR
booklets etc. A tremendous amount of money is extorted from public
Scientologists to fund tv commercials that somehow are never seen.
Ideal Org Building fundraising is at the forefront of the marching
orders to Cl V orgs. The finding and purchasing of Ideal Org
Buildings is the antithesis of LRH intention as fully summarily
covered in HCO PL 23 Sept 70 Quarters,Policy Regarding,Historical
(in OEC Vol VII). Despite this, orgs are being hammered to 1. find
a building (and it must be 40,000 square feet minimum to be
considered), and 2. fundraise so it can be purchased.. This calls
for c-o-n-t-i-n-u-a-l events so the millions can be raised. These
events MUST be held on a repeating basis. When public go to the
FSO, they earmark how much money they are going to donate while
they are there – because they are not going to make it out of there
without donating. I know of a lady kept up until 4 am until she
agreed to turn over 50,000 in donation to the IAS (and broke the
agreement with her husband to consult him before dishing out
money). She was distraught, as she is not a wealthy woman, is in
her late 50s and does not have any kind of nest egg. The 50,000 was
from a house sale that was for seeing her through OT VII. She was
at the FSO to “bring SOLO NOTS home, and she left without her
materials even though she passed all the requirements. She was, in
effect, shoved right off the bridge.  The intention is to distract
the orgs from delivery, to get every thin dime from the public, and
to use the acquisition of these buildings to prove that Scientology
is booming when it’s not. Superpower – Superpower has been ready
for release for over a decade (maybe 2?). The intention is to
stockpile money and stop the release of Superpower.
Book Campaigns are constantly regged for. Since I have been out of
the S.O, I have more calls to purchase books (new releases as well
as donations for libraries) than I have for getting my F/L debt
paid off or for getting back on the Bridge. After I routed out, I
got a call from the I&R CLO and an FSC reg, who had a well-laid
plan to get thousands of dollars in credit with 0% interest so I
could get 4 full sets of Basics (books and lectures). This totaled
12,000.00.00 and it included about 30,000.00 for my F/L debt. I
fell for it and did it. The Basics materials are in my garage and
my credit cards are maxed and my credit ruined. I earnestly tried
to get the basics sold, but the field is inundated with these
materials with numerous public also storing them in the garage. My
bad, and I’m paying the price. While in charge of a Cl V org, there
were repeated visits from (Bridge Publications and GOLD) projects
who were fund raising for book campaigns and bright ideas – all
with a guarantee that the campaign would “handle the city” or
“drive public in on the org”.  The intention is to amass vast
quantities of money with no exchange to “fund” off-source bright
ideas that are a distraction of org production.
Blocking flows of public up the Bridge.
  -This is covered above with the high prices and by distracting
them with donate, donate, donate, but also by directing OT
Ambassadors to reach into their field and send them to FSO for
Objectives and Grades. Objectives and Grades are done at mission
and Cl V org level and they should be directed to flood their own
org with public, not send them elsewhere. With the release of the
basic books and lectures, the runway to becoming an auditor has
lengthened just that much, as they are now prerequisites. The
intention is to empty out the Cl V orgs, and if they don’t empty
out, then inhibit them from making auditors..
Altering tech and policy.
  -I was most recently posted at the Cl V org level (garrison
mission out of CLO WUS).
The outpoints in the running of the mission itself and the managing
of the org were wild and various. The biggest and most destructive
3 were 1. no evaluation. An evaluation was asked for repeatedly and
management was provided with HUNDREDS of pages of data. No joy, so
sent the package to ED INT. He responded quite thoughtfully and
helpfully, and I executed his direction. But the org needed an eval
and nothing relayed to every echelon resulted in getting the org
evaluated ( 6 YEARS), but instead 2. constant orders to find a new
building. The city was scouted and nothing could be found that was
either big enough nor affordable.  Two real estate agents burned
out. The main guy in charge of this from the CLO came to the org to
help on at least 5 occasions, and didn’t find anything either. That
notwithstanding, repeated events were ordered to be held to
fundraise the money for a new building. In 5 years, about $190,000
for a new building was raised. The public did not like the entire
concept and wouldn’t donate. Out of that paltry amount of money
(which the public faithfully donated to get a new building) an
order came down to spend over 8,000.00 of it for a Congress
Lectures display that would boom the org.  3. is the “direction” to
put on events. These are New Years, LRH Birthday, May 9th, Summer
of events (MV Anniversary – which are all 4 weekends of July,
Auditor’s Day, IAS Anniversary. Usually a large event is expected
for a viewing of the CC Int Gala which is in, I believe Sept.  The
push and comm. on this is relentless and HUGE “because  each event
is like no other”. The hype that this is the solution to expansion
that you are looking for is communicated in a new unit of time with
each event. Each event will literally (a very commonly used adverb)
change the public involvement and will boom your org. What changed
in 2005 or 6, is that no events can be held in your org (unless you
were in an Ideal org building). It has to be at an outside venue
AND the venue would get approved only if it was very upstat (you
have to send pictures) and only if the room held 3X your highest
ever event attendance. This is a waste time and of money. The
entire staff have to be run on event call in and org funds have to
be spent on these venues.  Because this particular org was somewhat
nearby the PAC Base, we were frequently ordered to attend the live
event in PAC – which the public hated, and the attendance was
horrible – but our measly 40 or so public that did go filled a few
more seats at the live (filmed) event. One time I deliberately
cross-ordered having the event in an outside venue and I was
investigated by the org’s DSA and told I couldn’t emcee the event
because I was out-ethics.
Another management squirrel operating basis is to operate on
“Patterns”. For instance, Buffalo org was purchased, and made into
an Ideal Org. There were sequences to pulling that off. So this
becomes a pattern.  So there are telexes and directions for you to
do in your org that copy the “Buffalo Pattern” (for instance).  Or
in one org, someone got lucky and told the Lead (public) VM that he
was now the Volunteer Minister I/C (a staff post), and that person
agreed. So that becomes the solution in every org: just walk up to
your Field VM IC and tell him/her that he/she is now on staff.
Useless.  The other mismanagement was the relentless demand that
you get 20 recruits (in one week) and send them all to FSO for
training as supervisors and auditors. If it wasn’t in your BP, then
it got added by your Programs Chief with a face-rip on not having
included it. The Snr C/S of the org was pounded for compliance to
this order as well by her senior – the Snr C/S of the Cont..
There are daily calls from Bridge to make your GBS quota – pushing
mainly the selling of Congresses and Basics. An org had to purchase
an $8,000.00 interactive display from Gold when the Congresses were
released. The payment for this was okay’d to be fundraised, and
when that didn’t pan out, it was okay’d to come from the money
setaside for the purchase of the new Ideal Org Building. $8,000.00
down the drain.
These are the key points that were utter distractions to running
the org or getting in public to sell and deliver to (Reason for
Orgs). The intention is to eradicate standard management as covered
by LRH is Management CBOs (Central Bureaux Orders).
“Highest Ever” statistics have been re-defined so they are NOT
highest ever – they are highest ever for the year. So when highest
ever is mentioned at an event, it’s not the truth.
It’s a major outpoint that Objectives and Grades are being
delivered in so few hours at the FSO. If GAT auditors are perfect
everywhere, then what is different about the tech at the FSO?
Also, not just altering, but removing: HCO PL “Policy on Sec EDs
and Hats” (try 2 or 3 OEC Vol Os ago) and where is HCO PL
“Planetary Dissemination”? These LRH issues have been removed from
recent re-issues of the OEC volumes. Other notable alterations have
been noted by others and are verifiable by comparing earlier tapes
with current CDs.
The Comm Course which boomed Scientology in the 70s is gone.
The Primary Rundown is gone and LRH says it is a vital prerequisite
to major training (ref Tech Vol X pg 84-87) HCO B 4 April 1972R
PRIMARY RUNDOWN (REVISED): “It is up to the Course Supervisor to
hold this line in. His students will not prosper if their study is
begun without a Primary Rundown.  It is a high crime to omit this
vital step.”.
And 10 years after LRH is gone, there is a new definition for what
an F/N is: 3 swings of the needle.
The Intention is to just spin everyone, and once they’re spinning,
jam in a bunch of arbitraries so they stick (anyone who’s run FPRD
knows how’s how this works.)

Misapplying ethics and justice:
  -The brutality mentioned in numerous and various sites describes
this fully. For me (as a Cl V org garrison mission ED), I couldn’t
get a supervisor comm. ev’d who was (by public interrog) guilty of
gross, gross, gross out tech, who had tried (in the courseroom) to
interest a public in a product he was selling on his moonlight job,
but I was comm. ev’d at the end of my Garrison Mission for being
disaffected.  This violates an LRH handling for “returning vets” to
do a returning vets program which gets them cleaned up and put on
post back in management. I was not ethics’d when things were going
to shit, but was ethics’d when the person I had recruited to
replace me finally arrived. With the org not expanding and
struggling, a mission was sent by the CLO to RB “why the golden age
of tech is not going in”.
It’s also noted that an S.O. member who was I/C of an IAS Branch
Office was reported on by me to be abusive to staff – both mentally
and physically and got physical with his own wife – to a point the
wife and one of the staffers were suicidal “Sorry Upstat”  was the
reply. The intention is to create robots who comply to the beat of
the chief drummer.
Mismanaging and no-managing orgs
  — see above
Misappropriating funds
  –See above examples of how a Cl V org is directed. I have no
doubts that IAS and Superpower money has been misappropriated
simply by being very familiar with the amount of money raised
compared to the “no product.” Again, the intention is to amass huge
quantities of monies to be spent at the whim of the powers elite.

2. Examine the statistics of the individual, group, project or org.

Cl V org stats are declining over a very long period of time – like
20 years.
The Ideal Orgs that have been made are NOT full of public. Staff
are gotten from different cities and different orgs to man up the
newest Ideal Org. Geographical musical chairs.
Psychiatry is succeeding.
Education is abysmal.
There is no one on superpower. The building isn’t done.
Numerous OT VIIIs have left the church.
Former RTC and senior execs have left the church. Old-timers or
someone with a physical condition are simply offloaded.
Huge sums of money (mainly for IAS) are accumulating.
People leaving the S.O., or dismissed from the S.O. are at an all
time high.
The PR of Scientology is abysmal in the public mind
The “Golden Age of Tech” touts that the tech will be perfect
everywhere, but orgs are being instructed (via OT Ambassadors) to
send their field to Flag. I suppose where “real tech” can be
Releases, Clears and Auditors are on a 20 years decline.
Obscene amounts of money have been spent on buildings and quarters
for RTC and Miscavige.

3. Decide on the basis of “the greatest good for the greatest
number of dynamics” whether or not it should be attacked, harmed or
suppressed or helped.

I would like to help it, but that door is closed due to the
Chairman of the Board. So the current management (and more
specifically the instigator: David Miscavage) has to be attacked.

4. Evaluate oneself or one’s own group, project or org as to
intentions and objectives.

The intentions and objectives of my own group are to deliver
Scientology is a safe environment with on-Source application of
tech and policy to the result of the person moving up the Bridge
with such rave results, he gets everyone he knows to “come get it
too.” This describes a field group, mission, Cl V org as it was
back in the 70s – when LRH was on the line and org staff ran their
orgs with minimal management interference.
Further, it is to be part of a 3D that operates on-Source so a true
3rd dynamic can be realized and we can get on with clearing the
planet without distractions (that are brought about by aberrated,
out-ethics, off-Source behavior by those in charge). Our eternity
depends on this. The objective is an On-Source Scientology where
ethics, tech and admin   (includes management tech) are applied by
the book – so that the benefits of Scientology can be realized on
this earth.

5. Evaluate one’s own or one’s group, project or org’s statistics.

Non-e for me personally. And I don’t specifically know the
statistics of the group I have decided to join. We are “in the Div
6 Phase” at this point wherein new adherents are being invited to
join the group of Independent Scientologists – this stat appears
very much to be on the increase. Just the blog where one learns and
decides has over 1 million hits. So it is growing – ie upstat.

6. Join or remain in or befriend the one which progresses toward
the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics and announce
the fact publicly to both sides.

I hereby join the group of Independent Scientologists. And to make
it crystal clear: It is a group of people that ARE Scientologists,
who abide by tech and policy and won’t tolerate off-Source
activities. I am joining the group that recognizes that David
Miscavige is wrecking the C of S and thus is the group that is
eager to right the wrongs and get Scientology back on the rails.

NB. Here are the bullet points of why Miscavige has to step down/be
•    Sabotage of CL V orgs by: eradicating on-Source Management.
•    Getting rid of/removing those who know Management Tech
•    Ordering CL V org OT Committees to send org public to FSO for
Objs & Grades
•    Commanding back-to-back international events that feature him and
how He is saving and/or expanding Scientology
•    Commanding continual events that drain the pockets of on-line
public for: new 40,000 sf buildings, superpower building, book
campaigns, IAS disasters
•    Not releasing superpower
•    Waste/extravagance with parishioner donations, and monies sent to
Int by CL V orgs and missions, and god knows who else.
•    Depriving CL V Org staff adequate pay through a “finance  system”
that chokes them.
•    Being privy to, enforcing or suggesting abortions
•    Hijacking the heart and soul of Scientology by: dissing LRH tech
by redefining training and enforcing a “Golden Age” (of tech);
creating ethics arbitraries where parishioners cannot express their
feelings or opinions
•    Reinstituting disconnection and ripping apart friends and family
thus creating horrific ARC Xs and PR for Scientology – MAKING
enemies for Scn.
•    Setting himself up as Source by defining what an F/N is; by
deleting data from tapes, books, technical bulletins and policies.
•    Redefining HIGHEST EVER without informing the public so highest
ever if for the year, not for ever. When relayed at int events, the
public are then made to believe in the “expansion”.
•    Ruining the movie Battlefield Earth.
•    Degrading capable Int Execs by: declaring them SP; locking them
down and physically and mentally abusing them until they toe his
•    Creating a hidden data line
•    Squirreling Ethics
•    Squirreling Tech
•    Squirreling admin – including Management Tech
•    Joking and Degrading
•    Revealing details of confessions protected by priest/penitent
•    Monopolizing the LRH biographer’s time, thus sabotaging the
anticipated publication of the LRH biography.
•    Not delivering the broadly announced Scientology dictionary
•    And he hit Heber……

So after all is said and done, examined, digested and confronted, I
hereby declare my self an Independent Scientologist. I am not
resigning from “the Church”.  “Resigning” has too many distasteful
connotations. Being an Independent Scientologist does not. It
provides the freedom of thought and movement that is at the core of


In 1972, someone asked if I wanted to do a Communications Course.
In we walked, and I sat down for an OT TRO and went exterior after
an hour or so. Then 2 hour blinkless TR O. I was IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Then HQS (the big flap was running out of chairs). Then PRD and I
was asked if I was interested in working there. My verbatim
response was: “I could work here?!!!!” And so I did for nearly 3
years. My idea was that as soon as everyone (I was thinking only of
United States at that time) even heard of Scientology, we’d have
totally 100% made it – simply because Scientology was so logical
and true, that as soon as anyone heard of it – well, they’d do it.
Staff was the joy of joys. I ended up as the Dissemination
Secretary. I built it to an 18 man Dissemination Division. Going to
post everyday was like doing what you wanted to do. There were 5
FEBCs heading the org that were all trained on the Apollo under LRH
– with L-10 under their belts.  Sweet.  The CLO even sent an
observation mission to find out how we were doing it. We had a look-
alike contest to see who looked the most like our Programs Chief.
It was just fun and games and we were booming with 80 students in
the Academy at one time doing nothing but Student Hat/PRD, Acad
levels 0-IV and HSDC. The internship was full. We had a build a
second HGC because the HGC hit over 600 hours (pre-purif – because
it didn’t exist at that time). LRH policy says that when your hours
hit 600, you need a second HGC – so we built one. There were 2 Cl
VIIIs with 2 more I/T at ASHO. A couple of the staff went to AO and
did through OT III.
    Then someone asked if I would join the Sea Org. Of course!! What
else would one do?
At first, it was just a hoot. It’s 1976 and so much of what was
still alive was LRH. He had a fleet of vans that were purchased for
the sole purpose of taking the staff to the beach or the local CW
malls to shop on their days off. You didn’t CSW for your liberty
(every second Sat if your stats were up). You just told your senior
the “tomorrow is my libs day, so I won’t be in”.  “Okay” would be
the reply. 3 week leave were a little tougher, but in my first 5
years in the S.O,
I ran a mission to acquire additional berthing for the staff and
nursery because there were a lot more staff and there was a bit of
a baby boom happening. I supervised outer org and was very highly
commended by LRH 3 times (a very highly commended cleans your
ethics file and you get a campaign bar for it)
And over the years, the freedoms, granting of beingness, the right
to originate, the liberties, the staff “perks” began to erode. The
pay, the food, the time off, the freedom to create your post – bit
by bit, these things eroded/  It just stopped being fun.
Fast forward 30 years or so. Libs are a nightmare to get. 3 week
leaves are almost unheard of. There are 10-16 people per dorm.
Musters are 3 Xs per day and are ordinarily entheta. Staff are
micro-managed.  There are no babies and women who become pregnant
either abort or are offloaded (the idea to send them to CL V orgs
for 6 years is no more – they are offloaded with a freeloader
debt). My own son was staff for 13 years and is a Purif completion.
He’s out along with his wife. They now have 2 young beautiful and
vibrant children. But, I’ve declared my independence. She or he
have alerted all my friends on Facebook that I have resigned. I
love my son with every fiber of my being, but he’s disconnected
from me and is hard at work severing all my “still in” friends. The
day after this happened, my in-box was full of “Linda, is this
Let the games begin.  Truth, in the end will prevail, and it will
all be set right. This chapter will close, and Book II will begin
with Scientology re-instated as it was meant to be.
