South Park: OSA Operative’s Role Confirmed

references:  South Park Part I, South Park Part II, South Park Part III

Thanks to the last investigative reporter in New York, confirmation that the actions outlined in the OSA (Corporate Scientology’s terror and harassment arm the Office of Special Affairs) memoranda I published in the above referenced posts have been confirmed by an independent witness.

Tony “the last investigative reporter in NY” Ortega of the Village Voice followed up on this particular OSA memorandum posted here three days ago:

Re: South Park

Eric Sherman (then-corporate Scientologist writer), who is good friends with Lloyd Kaufman (independent film maker), contacted him about South Park. Kaufman knows Trey Parker and Matt Stone and has been friends with them for years. 

Ortega reported today on his interview with Kaufman, Ortega interview Kaufman.  Kaufman, clearly an unwitting target of OSA operative Eric Sherman’s advances, confirms that Sherman indeed pumped him for data on Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

Kaufman was also asked about this OSA report I posted two days ago:

OSA Invest DR 3 May 06

SOUTH PARK: A PI met with a young filmmaker who recently graduated college (who was a student of Eric Sherman).  The filmmaker recently did an interview with Lloyd Kaufman, a friend of Trey Parker and Matt Stone.  He has agreed to assist to establish some comm lines in the South Park Studios and to try and get intelligence on their plans with regard to Scientology.  He is going to approach Kaufman to see if Kaufman can get him an introduction to Parker and Stone and either possibly get a job as an intern there or as a writer (he has seen every episode of South Park).

Since Kaufman said he has been approached by so many film students so can’t recall whether anyone connected to Sherman followed up with him, the need for Eric Sherman to step forward increases.  So far Sherman has remained true to my prediction in an earlier post, he’s gone AWOL.

    This South Park story sure has legs.. Google counts 117 separate news articles around the world and growing!

    I think this story will strike at the heart of a lot of Hollywood insiders…. they will no longer see Co$ in the same light that has been painted by Scientology stars Cruise and Travolta. Instead, they can see the dark underbelly of the Beast. A Beast that can slash out at anyone of THEM… The Hollywood stronghold of Scientology is burning down before our eyes and DM is playing the fiddle!

  2. martyrathbun09

    Robert, right. There is a lot to be learned from this series. Here is the most important point in my view: As long as David Miscavige runs Corporate Scientology every Corporate Scientologist is a spy. For example, every conversation Tom Cruise has with David Beckham, WIll Smith, Steven Speilberg, you name it, is dutifully reported back and is memorialized in a report and filed under that name. The buttons divined from those reports are used to control and manipulate each of them in many nefarious ways. Eric Sherman got called out in this series. Many more, and bigger names, will be called out in later ones – provided they not see the light and come figure out a way to make a clean breast of it without having to expose half of Hollywood and Washington.

  3. Just like the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, any and every totalitarian regime.

  4. Robert Almblad

    Wow, Washington too.. I get it. I think maybe the German government got it too. They just didn’t want to get manipulated in nefarious ways.

    The Lives of Others

    That’s what this is in technicolor. Some of us got together and watched that movie after you recommended it Marty. The parallels of this moving story and what cob’s mob is doing gave us goosebumps. I think part of the effect it created was how well the osabots and “see-no-evils” have their covert ops justified AND how entrenched I was in that mindset at one time.

    Shine the light, shine the light…

  6. Another brilliant piece of the third dynamic engram exposed to view, Marty.

    I really wonder if Cruise, Travolta, Will Smith et al. are aware of the fact that their sessions are recorded and anything they say in session can and would be used against them by miscavige if he got pissed off at them?

    Hey you guys, it happend to me. It happened to Marty. It happend to Mike. It’s happened to many people.

    Could it really happen to you?

    Is it safe to reveal anything to any auditor who works in the cult of miscavige?

    Do you have scientologists working for you? Do they report to miscavige?

    Inquiring minds want to know. You should want to know too.

  7. martyrathbun09

    TS, thanks for the shout out on the movie. If anyone reading this hasn’t seen it, once again I highly recommend it.

  8. Congraulations Marty,

    Highest ever stat on your blog since it’s start (alexa).
    ” The world is listening !”

  9. Kind of interesting that you’re supposed to be able to say anything to your auditor, and can only freely be in session and making case gain when you feel that way. So, knowing that anything you say to the CofS, OSA-controlled auditor can later be used against you, how free do you feel to actually be in session. NOT!!

  10. Jethro Bodine

    Is it just me or doesn’t Corporate Scientology and their use of “moles” smell a lot like McCarthyism, another dark era for Hollywood?

  11. I’ll second that, The Lives of Others is an incredible film. It shows the courage it takes to defy oppression and a system that values people as disposable.

  12. Marty,

    Found this on EXSMB:
    “after a long few nights, I recognize I dont owe anyone anything re the church and secrets.. so I am willing to put this out for now. My little sister is suri’s nanny, and her mother runs the cruz house as its set up as an org.. It is Brian at LACC’s fault I diluge these thing, MAN UP BRIAN. I GAVE YOU AMPLE WARNING TO HELP CORRECT WRONGS THAT LEAVE YOUR GROUP AT LIABILITY.”
    ps it is the exact reason you never could get me on course or reg me for a damn thing… arent you supposed to be some wizz kid..
    I am just starting to put myself in exchange for your acts.. It is ethical, and I do not feel bad, why should I try and protect what has hurt me so bad and cheated me out of what I hold dear unjustly, for your own gains.. you have been criminal in exchange and right now, IM GRINNING… lets go..
    ” I got 33 years of cht to talk, I have not even started.”
    He posts under the name of philtmonx.
    What’s going on there ?
    Does TC have a problem or is that a joke ?

  13. According to this thread Sherman’s son Cosimo is a BC supe at ASHO. If that’s true, no wonder Eric has to toe the line.

  14. top of the vale

    Under the radar as I am, I have to say that I have experienced direct intimidation by e/os using old case data that has since as-ised. The fact that an e/o would use case(the way a person reacts to the world around him by reason of his aberrations) data to make a person feel less stable is more inquisitor like than a shepherd leading his flock. This is definitely ‘stazi’ secret police intimidation B.S. like the info described the the movie mentioned above.

    How in the world could a new public with this data expect his innermost personal information remain sacred in the existing Co$. Truth is, one can’t. Only in the Independent World, where an auditor doesn’t have connection to a corrupt organization with an axe to grind, can a public trust his auditor to have his/her best interests in mind.

    One could say I am in the crepuscule of my life and altho’ I have many “friends”(one’s you know and can trust) who are still ‘In’, there are many more in the Independent world who would not turn their backs on me if I turned toward them. The policies on disconnection are very strong in the Co$ and people should know that the bullshit that KP and other execs are slinging, ” that it is up to the parishioner to decide” is in fact a policy that one is REQUIRED to follow or get the axe as so many in the Independent world know.

    It is some incredible strain to be under the radar as I know in my heart what my personal integrity dictates, otherwise I wouldn’t have demonstrated, “inquiring minds need to know”. Isn’t that why we all got involved in Scientology in the first place? We are all inquiring minds that need to know and those that stopped ‘needing to know’ stopped being true Scientologists. LRH said, LOOK, DON’T LISTEN. When one stops doing that according to someone else’s agenda, they are no longer self determined, but other determined and playing someone else’s game. LRH also said, “What is true for you, is true.” “Reality exists when it is agreed upon by two or more terminals” – LRH.

    Definitely two or more terminals find reality with what’s on these blogs. Such a vast majority can’t be all that wrong.

  15. Tom Gallagher

    It’s pretty apparent that by the time that this all plays out POB’s compromised Hollywood crew is going to be on the outside looking in.

    Karma sure can be a bitch.

  16. I thought I remembered Eric Sherman from the early days but wasn’t sure.

    Quick google search will bring up his website, along with a 3 minute or so blurb by Eric about Eric.

    We all age differently so I shouldn’t really bring attention to how he looks BUT if Brian Culkin can talk about middle aged women and hair — I can say — Eric looks HORRIBLE. Too thin and too serious.

    He’s spent his life as a scientologist and it’s sad to me to see someone more or less my age so lifeless.

    He just doesn’t appear to be happy. Not one bit.


  17. To say he doesn’t appear happy is an understatement. After reading your post I googled his name and pulled up his site. First you see his picture on the banner at the top; healthy, happy looking man. And then, below that is the photo of him in the video. Good grief! My first thought was that he looks terminally ill. Considering the news of the past few days and his allegiance to a totally suppressive cult, I imagine he looks even worse now…….if that’s possible.

  18. Trey Parker and Matt Stone should do a press conference, ragging on corporate church bullshit tactics.

    Or, perhaps they’ll just do a sequel to Trapped in the Closet.

    Either way, this story is getting plenty of coverage.

  19. WH-Getting out of the Co$ has been a major beauty treatment.

  20. Tony DePhillips

    There is a new movie coming out about J. Edgar Hoover. That should have some strong parallels also.

  21. Tony DePhillips

  22. If his son truly IS the ASHO sup, then his son is in the SO.

    Faced with what he KNOWS would be immediate disconnection from his son and any other family members who are involved with scn — he remains quiet or purposefully unaware.

    Living a lie is one key reason people become sick. The inner “lung” or “wind” goes down, lessens and/or stagnates … the life energy is sapped.

    Look at Eric’s little video and see just how low that life energy is. His lungta (Tibetan) or windhorse is almost non-existent and Ingrid is right — leaving the suppression of dm’s lie would give him an almost instant
    NEW lease on life.


  23. The constant exposure, the relentless blog posts and the recent 5000 plus signatures remind me that underneath ALL of this are human beings, just like me who want to be understood and loved.

    And dm’s fortress makes that impossible for his rank and file AND himself.

    Don’t give up
    It’s just the weight of the world
    When your heart’s heavy
    I…I will lift it for you

    Don’t give up
    Because you want to be heard
    If silence keeps you
    I…I will break it for you

    Everybody wants to be understood
    Well I can hear you
    Everybody wants to be loved
    Don’t give up
    Because you are loved

    Don’t give up
    It’s just the hurt that you hide
    When you’re lost inside
    I…I will be there to find you

    Don’t give up
    Because you want to burn bright
    If darkness blinds you
    I…I will shine to guide you

    Everybody wants to be understood
    Well I can hear you
    Everybody wants to be loved
    Don’t give up
    Because you are loved

    You are loved
    Don’t give up
    It’s just the weight of the world
    Don’t give up
    Every one needs to be heard
    You are loved

  24. I bet Eric Cartman is reading this blog everyday. It’ll be hilarious to see what he comes up with as a result. No doubt it would be the most anticipated tv show in decades!!!

  25. Marty,

    It is creepy just how nefarious Miscavige and Radical Corporate Scientology (RCS) can be in relation to celebrities and others for that matter. Your comment reminds me of the flap that occurred at RCS management in Los Angeles, just before Lucy and I left, in spring of 2006.

    Tom Cruise had been trying to get his friend James Packer roped back into Scientology. The Packer family was a media dynasty in Oz and James Packer had inherited it all. Cruise “befriended” Mr. Packer in 2002 a la David Beckham but with more success. But by 2006 James Packer wasn’t having it and the attempt was made to “recover” him.

    RCS was using three Scientologists who worked for Mr. Packer. These three reported Mr. Packer’s every move to RCS including who he hung out with, what time he got up in the morning, etc.

    James Packer was gotten into RCS’s advanced organization in Sydney but it didn’t go well which of course was a big flap within RCS. As the international manager over of all advanced organizations Lucy was called in to help and so witnessed the whole affair. To brief her, Lucy was handed the private/confidential dossier on James Packer that Celebrity Center International had on him which contained all the reports and intimate details of his life channeled back to them by his three “employees”.

    Anyway, Tom Cruise wasn’t happy the move had failed and Celebrity Center International was baying for blood as a result. They wanted everyone involved disciplined, big time. One of the main people to take the fall for his failure to resume Scientology services was one the three reporting Scientologists who worked for Packer. She was rounded up by the Sea Org in Australia (someone from Celebrity Center International flew down there) and was disciplined and replacement for her was sought. Yes, RCS sought to replace an employee of a private company because she didn’t try hard enough to influence her employer. Part of the pretext used to discipline her within RCS, was the fact that she had taken a monetary bonus from James Packer, despite the fact that he gave bonuses to all his staff. I guess she forgot who she was really working for.

  26. Interesting PR lines as reported by Radar online on the subject and the Petition:

    “As previously reported, Scientology launched an intense investigation into the lives of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, but now it seems the tables have turned.

    “A Scientology spokesperson issued the following statement to “As recent news accounts have shown, the new ‘We the People’ initiative cannot take seriously the ample number of off-the-wall, easily-manipulated petitions initially generated like the anti-Scientology petition. Petitions that have been submitted to ‘We the People’ include demands to legalize prostitution, legalize marijuana, to change the motto of the United States, and to proclaim a World Psoriasis Day.”

  27. Robert Almblad

    Hey Marty, go get your popcorn and sit back and watch the meltdown! Germany’s press is really popping too! Not only Spiegel Online but a bunch of others: here’s one that have a snippet of the South Park closet video in English… it came up about 20 min ago..

    Anyway, everything is timing. And, this was great timing Marty. Thanks so much. All the power to you… you’re the man!

  28. Dyslexia kicking in.. meant to say: “Anyway, timing is everything” not, “everything is timing” subtle difference..

  29. Alex castillo (Maybe not off topic?)

    This message is dedicated to all of you readers, especially to those who understand and have experienced the benefits of LRH’s Philosophy of Scientology:

    Today, in Marty Rathbun’s blog it is all about how David Miscavige has, personally or otherwise committed a large number of crimes against people and Scientology itself. It seems to be all about his betrayal of trust and the so many reasons he should be brought to justice. Over the years in this blog here have been so many good people helping and contributing with evidence of Misvavige’s crimes, which is correct and as it should be amongst the honest people of this world. However, all of these correct actions should not distract us from what Marty’s basic purpose is: KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING.

    Recently I had the opportunity to spend time talking with my old “comrade in arms” Mike Rinder, and during that time I came to see more clearly that Marty is not “out to get David Miscavige” as his main purpose. Because he is a person who took the time and effort and has the intelligence to, fully understand LRH’s works, Marty’s aim, in spite of all the barriers he has encountered, is that he just wants to help people with the application of genuine Scientology. I was told that if it wasn’t for all this Miscavige issue, he would just be auditing day in and day out. Simple as that. He is also one of us people who, many years ago, agreed to sign a very long contract to help LRH and Scientology and it’s purpose of helping the Human Race enlighten itself towards Peace, Understanding and Unity. You see, many of us never saw Scientology as a cure to our problems. We saw it as a method of achieving a more rational, clearer way of thinking to improve our present and future lives and that of our fellow Human beings.
    And that, as I understand it, is Marty’s, Mike and his closest friends, purpose.
    By all means we must continue with our efforts to see to it that LRH’s Scientology’s integrity is protected and preserved for future generations to benefit from it. LRH made it clear in his policy letter Keeping Scientology Working and from what I understand, that’s what Marty and Mike and others means to achieve.

    Wheather it be David Miscavige or other individuals out there inventing a better version of Scientology by reason of misunderstoods or because they know best or because they think KSW Policy is a violation of the right to “improve” things, the fact is that Scientology only REALLY works as it was intended and as it has been proved again and again and again, when it is applied STANDARDLY AND CORRECTLY. Other methods may appear similar but they are not the same as STANDARD SCIENTOLOGY. Sorry to beat my drum so loud but I know and you know it’s true.

    I do believe that KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING is what Marty’s blog is all about. I believe that, while we must do everything possible to remove this insane MFer from his position in space, we should not lose sight of the REAL Purpose, which is much higher on the Tone Scale than Let’s get Criminal David Miscavige and his well paid minions, the real purpose being: TO KEEP SCIENTOLOGY WORKING.

    If I am wrong, please correct me and I am very willing to eat crow with a tortilla and salsa picante to make it more palatable! :))


  30. Extraordinarily well said Alex… you said:

    “We saw it as a method of achieving a more rational, clearer way of thinking to improve our present and future lives and that of our fellow Human beings.”

    This is exactly my view too. We are all comrades in arms to Keep Scientology Working.

    Scientology is not working in the Co$ today because DM concluded that what LRH left us was the “blind leading the blind” and DM knew how to correct this: GAT etc… and, THAT is our sole license for being here: KSW

  31. Marty says :::::
    In DM’s cult every Corporate Scientologist is a spy.

    They even turned my own son Alexander Jentzsch as a spy against me to report to OSA.
    No qualms on getting a son to spy even on his MOM.

    There are 2 things EVERY Scientologist must do.
    1) Spy for the Church.
    2) Make $$$$ for the Church.
    Read this, all SCIENTOLOGISTS are now empowered to be IAS Field Diesseminators. Make 10% off of your family !
    Let everybody gouge everybody else for the Church !
    “IAS Field Disseminators”
    New email from an LA area org…

    Scientologists can make money from friends and family (who have not been disconnected from)

    Evidently the plan is to get Scn’s to “FSM” or solicit donations from other Scn’s for the IAS –and in exchange the person doing the FSMing gets 10 or 15 % of the donation. It works like an MLM. If I get you to donate $5000, I get $500.

    While I am pretty sure that the MLM type payments have always been the case for courses and auditing, ( I am sure someone has the correct data here) ; the leaked email below would indicate soliciting others for IAS donations is now part of a scam to raise more money for the church without delivering anything to the buyer.

    At least now they are being honest about giving nothing in exchange for the money they are coercing.

    text follows:


    With all that the IAS is doing as a united group dedicated to making the Aims of Scientology a reality, there are those taking the extra step toward making sure the IAS will expand.

    Field Disseminators are members who work to forward this purpose, spreading the message of the IAS to others and creating a world without insanity, criminality and war.

    It is within your power as an IAS FSM to salvage the planet, by helping expand the IAS and increasing the number of members we have.

    In order to help you with this activity, a kit with the materials, information, and a DVD covering each of the IAS campaigns is available for free.

    Send for your kit and get started today!

  32. A point made by someone else about EO’s bringing up data out of one’s case: when the data was first looked at in session it was handled. When the EO brought it up for the person to do amends for, the original stuff was gone but now a second “echo” of the incident was being created. After this the guy is trying to handle the original again, thinking that’s his problem, but it’s really the “copy” made by the unnecessary handling in the EO’s office that needs handling.

    Now with them chasing after you with some loony thought that you should be intimidated by your past, they are creating a third “copy.” Sounds to me like a reactive mind in full operation. Only this “Reactive Mind” is called a church!

  33. The new New Life Rundown–disconnect from DM. Worked for me!

  34. ?? Anyone?

  35. Alex,

    Keep beating your drum.

    It is our innate inclination to improve scenes and conditions. A minor few operate otherwise.

    Resistance to this small man’s violent and psychotic dramatizations ultimately is victory.

    Freedom from POB, an historic sociopath, is close at hand.

    He’s working overtime to see this come to pass. POB is like a fattened beef calf going down his slaughter shoot. Chomping his cud.

  36. Scott Campbell


    This story is a good example of how truly despicable the altered importances of Miscavige’s RCS are. OMG how desperate and grasping they have become!

  37. Scott Campbell

    Don’t tell me that you haven’t always been such a cutie pie, Ingrid. I know better!

  38. Scott Campbell

    Work both ways for me, Robert.

  39. I am partial to the idea that if one is squeaky clean in any accusation….
    one comes forward and WELCOMES any investigation to clear the air.

    Free of guilt, One fully WANTS to co-operate.
    Free of guilt, One wants to open up all phone records, Email records.
    Free of guilt, One should go overboard to co-operate with authorities….

    not deflect with smoke and mirrors absolute nonsense and tripe of the content of other petitions and bring late night comics into the issue.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh ~~ the world of cover up.

    ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK the petition.

    The leopard does not change its stripes….

  40. Tom Gallagher


    So beautiful. Let’s make it a little more ‘in the face’:

  41. Wow Haydn
    What a story.
    The question is should the American Government give a FREE PASS to an operation that has such  INTELLIGENCE Operations ?

    But where is this IRELIGIOUS ?

  42. Tom Gallagher


    If only Division 6 was given such emphasis.

    it could be such a different and better world. Jeesh………..

  43. Karen #1,

    I can’t agree more!!!

    For instance, the Minneapolis Ideal Org opened this past weekend.

    UPI reported the event as a 80,000 sq ft building in major city… but see “Robert” comment that today people are gotten onto the SCN basic books and basic courses for the purpose of fleecing these Scientology newbees into IAS, Idle Orgs, etc…. There is little delivery of Scientology anymore, except in the basic courses and books….

    DM made middle and upper level auditing ineffective in terms of a practice by re-defining F/N and bunch of other stupid GAT stuff.

    Today, in the Co$ there is only belief that if you continue on and on, that somehow, somewhere you will get some of the Scientology that you are reading about. GFL… Good .F… Luck!

  44. Sometimes it seems as though the Church of David Miscavige does not know that Scientology works! I had a case where a student on the Ethics and Justice Detection, Routing, and Handling course (say that five times fast! I think that was the name) acting as the deputy MAA at ASHO once declared me a “borderline suppressive” because I was not getting TA in session – had my PC folder open right in front of him. Said that I was getting 1 or 2 divisions of TA per session, something like that.

    Guess what we were auditing? Method 1 word clearing, where a large amount of time is spent off the cans. How can you measure TA when you are off the cans?

    This guy was caught and crammed. This was also 1982 or thereabouts, when the tech was still breathing in the orgs.

    But the other outpoint was as you mentioned: If you audit and handle something, what the cuss does the MAA have to do with it?

    A major reason why I no longer considered being an auditor for a living was this very thing: Having to write “non-actionable” KRs on overts found and cleared in session. This was anathema to me, since I know O/W theory and what happens when you truly find and handle these things.

    As Ron said in one of the BC tapes of that period about overts: “We don’t CARE what he did. We don’t CARE.” From a whole-track perspective (and even this lifetime for most) people in general have done some pretty petty and evil little things. And some major things. You can’t be alive without having done some transgressions against someone. The whole point of O/W is to get the person cause over it, take ownership and responsibility for it, to stop justifying why they did it, so they can unfix their attention and stop any compulsions to continue doing it, and own up to it. O/W done correctly is an amazing thing – and no MAA or teenaged CMO kid need have anything to to do with it.

    Apparently, DM did not get the memo. He certainly does not understand the tech.

  45. Thanks Alex,
    like any group Scientology is formed and held in existence by common goals and ideals shared by its members. By betraying these ideals the CofS has betrayed Scientology. Through their actions the CofS actually has left Scientology. They have copyrighted labels, they have empty words, obedience instead of freedom, attack instead of help. To dramatize “The Lives of Others” is not Scientology. Hate is not Scientology. The copyrighted label the CofS has is misleading.
    Scientology is those who uphold the spirit of help and helping others, of new horizons, of hope (and means) to leave the traps one feels he is in. This is fun and very rewarding. It is understanding and to me it cannot be separated from loving my brothers and sisters on this planet.

  46. Tom Gallagher

    Before i sign off I just want to thank you Marty for providing us a space to Occupy Scientology. That’s not to be trite.

    As point of fact, as of 10:00 pm EST, 5731 fellow beings have signed the petition.

  47. It happened to Placido Domingo Jr. too among many others. The corporate Scientology Office of Special Affairs (OSA) (how special??) posted a phony website with convoluted, twisted and personal info to “ruin” and cave him in.

    One of the news articles that covered it:
    Placido Domingo Jr. targeted by Scientologists after he abandons cult for ex-wife he was ordered not to see again
    -Son of famous tenor says organisation is scary but pathetic
    -Told to ‘disconnect’ from woman with whom he had three children

  48. This is so very very beautiful, Windhorse. Thank you for posting it. I think after all is said and done, this song speaks of the most noble, powerful and greatest possible thing. Ever. It’s what any playing field has been about for me, anyway. beautiful song!

    I followed your link and listened to the song. (Hope this link posts the video of it here!)
    You Are Loved [Don’t Give Up]

  49. Ya know, those headlines should’ve been bold. Whooosssh.

    Placido Domingo Jr. targeted by Scientologists after he abandons cult for ex-wife he was ordered not to see again
    -Son of famous tenor says organisation is scary but pathetic
    -Told to ‘disconnect’ from woman with whom he had three children

  50. Of course Karen. My logic on the matter. I have always thought this and Scientology helped to make it even more real to me WHY. Of course, a person that has clean hands leads a happy life BUT…the Church of Scientology? Who would have ever even thought their hands might be dirty if they themselves had not come forward in so many ways to verify this. One point. If the authorities should choose to investigate a Church of Scientology, send OSA OP’s to steal their trash and film them, rather than just say “May I help you in your investigation?”. The obvious is the obvious.

  51. Tom — I tried to actually embed it and have it show up. I really did.

    BUT all I could get was the link. You have a secret technique 🙂 — even though I think you told me how to do it once before.


  52. I think it was the “PTS Detection, Routing, and Handling Course,” wasn’t it?

  53. Alex, Excellent differentiation about the purpose. Excellent points!

  54. Karen, this has been going on for so long, since even before you were a the guest speaker in New York City that night I went to see you at the Americana Hotel. I knew this one lady and this is all she did was LIVE for her 10%’s off of people’s donations, and almost always from wealthy or affluent people that I know she really didn’t care about as much as she cared about LRH’s tech. She was in it for the money, only along with some of her close friends. Now I don’t mean to boast, but I want to be honest, how close can those people really be to each other if all they can think about is “how much money they are going to get off of the next sucker”. Why would anybody consider anybody that wanted to go Clear or OT a “next sucker” to get money from instead of impart tech and truth to. It is unheard of Karen and it is an original idea of the current management inherited from “devout members” like the lady I just mentioned. I will give you a hint who she might be, first name Debbie {former NY DAY Reg}. 🙂

  55. To me this sums up what each of us I HOPE are doing everyday, regardless whether we are DIRECTLY Keeping Scientology Working or not but passionately forwarding our own practical paths:

    In the words of Steve Jobs:

    For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “no” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

  56. Tom, here is a fantastic, REAL New OT VI {SOLO NOT’s Auditor Training Level} success story from that was on OT VI at Flag. This success story is so much with your logic on the matter here I just felt obligated to repeat it: “…when suddenly the room became too small. My supervisor told me to take a walk. As I walked I began to grow, and grow, and grow. All around me for several feet, there was no mass, I occupied that space”.That is one of my all time favorite success stories. I feel like that sometime for miles.

  57. Marty,

    Tom Cruise reported to his master (David Miscavige) that Steven Speilberg’s wife is an “SP” and Speilberg would like to divorce her but is afraid to do so because there is no prenup between them and if he divorces her, she will take away all of his wealth. Tom befriended Speilberg on behalf of David Miscavige in order to get Steven into Scientology but his “SP” wife won’t let him join the church. Tom Cruise keeps on working on Steven with the hope to get him in someday. Speilberg has shared a lot of his personal matters with Tom, he is very much PTS to Tom C and DM now.

    Guess we pretty much saw that one coming. Since “The Church of Miscavige’s Scientology” couldn’t stop the petition from reaching it’s goal +, an OSA OP is likely to be initiated. (it is very likely already being activated as I write this. (please note, this is not an official OSA document, but let’s see how close I come to the one they will inevitably issue.)

    Here are the basics of the OSA OP as I imagine them.

    RE: Government Petition to investigate the Church.


    ( I am leaving the terminals responsible for each action out because they are basically “yes men” and are only on their various posts because they can not think for themselves, but will blindly attempt to follow any order they are given by most anybody.)

    Purpose of Operation Cleansweep:
    To to employ any and all necessary means to prevent the US Government from initiating, or re-opening, the investigation into the Churches activities.

    End Product:
    The US Government needs to be silenced and backed off ANY FURTHER ATTEMPTS to investigate the Church, or David Miscavige, EVER!

    Operating Targets:
    1. Starting immediately, by whatever means possible, gather any information that could be used to “silence” anyone and everyone involved. This is to be done thoroughly! We want all the dirt that we can possible find on ANYONE who could possibly forward this petition.
    2. Issue statements invalidating the whole petition process. Invalidate the Petition against the Church by associating it with any other easily invalidated petition presented to “We The People”, Government petition site.
    2. Invalidate the whole site and the “legality” of it even existing, including invalidating President Obama and the US Government for even suggesting the petition process.
    3. Publicly attack President Obama and his Administration for using his/its position to attack and subvert the Church’s right to religious freedom.
    4. delay the “Official Response”, by whatever means, in order to buy time to get our “assets” within the Government briefed and given their personal targets.
    4a. Conditional Target . If an “Official Response ” is issued, and it is not in our favor, ruthlessly invalidate the “response” as illegal, or interfering with religious freedom. Force our “Government assets”, (using the previously assembled “smear packs”) to publicly make statements accusing President Obama and his Administration of “Bigotry” and call for a Public Inquiry into the “religious Intolerance” being specifically directed at The Church of Scientology and it’s parishioners.
    5.By whatever means gather any information that could be used to “silence” anyone involved.
    7. Using the information gathered in # 1 above, attack any and all persons involved in the whole process, their families and their friends, by using the compromising data found. Write articles, naming names and alluding to or publishing “indiscretions” on the part of these people. BE RUTHLESS!. This thing MUST BE STOPPED at all costs!
    8. Using “Freedom Magazine”, get this malicious information and innuendo into the hands of all their contacts, associates, and their neighbors.
    VITAL OPERATING TARGET: Keep the pressure on and step up the gradient as needed to see that the “End Product” is achieved! There will be no “half-dones” on this one!

    Report all compliances directly to COB, cc OSA.

    Well, that was longer than I had planned, but let’s see how I did.

  60. Excellent comment Alex.

    And as far as “eating crow” goes, it is an acquired taste. Still, it is far better than “beans and rice” (or fillet minion for that matter) served in a slave camp. And generally you don’t have to eat more than what you have already cooked up, before you get on a more substantial and invigorating diet.

  61. Great News Tom, thanks for the update. And yes, this is a haven for communication and understanding.

  62. Jethro Bodine

    “I’ll sell my car and donate the $$$ to the IAS if at least five other people here tonight do the same thing.” Actually heard this at an IAS briefing one time. I’m so glad not to be in a kool-aid drinking cult anymore.

  63. The Sherman guy for sure on his website looks like a Star Wars Darth Ridiculous or whatever and it is kind of embarrassing that he is there to do it. South Park is entertainment, corn and game, and I don’t even know what an overlord is. I do like life though.

  66. Martin Padfield

    Bingo! Best rundown in Scientology right now! Well said. At Sam’s party last week the contrast between the laughing, theta environment inside and the scowling nervousness of the bots with incomprehensible placards outside was stark. I asked one of them, off camera, what their message was exactly; said I’d give them a free airing and post it up for them. Apparently they didn’t have a message, except “We are slightly creepy cult members endangering ourselves, including a young girl, on a narrow country lane in Kent.” Nice work OSA. PR area control in action!

    ” Many more, and bigger names, will be called out in later ones – provided they not see the light and come figure out a way to make a clean breast ”


    Back up the Hearse and let them smell the flowers!! 🙂

  68. Wow, 50% up in a week. What a viral South Park can do! We’re talking to a lot of listeners.

  69. I use to know the auditor of J Packer way back in the 90s at ASHO ANZO. Her name was Janice Piesley. She was truly a wonderful person and accomplished auditor. But at that time Shane Brochtoff was the Snr C/S (this is the same SNR CS that ordered black DNs on Carmel Underwood), and as far as standard goes he was a loose cannon. Any command intention blew him off course. The more important the terminal the more he would panic and listen to instructions from above. He was a gutless SOB. Janice was shipped off to FLB and when she returned ages later was grey in complection, her husband (SO) had disappeared around that time as well.
    Also Janice audited the first successful heart transplant recieptent in Australia, Fiona (forget her last name). She too failed to follow through with Scientology. Peter Sparshot, another ANZO C/S died, a whole host successful auditors disappeared with the intro of GAT. The CL6 & 8 course rooms emptied out and have remained so. A pattern is all to easy to see.
    So much sadness and so much treason. It’s relatively easy to get results with Scientology, it takes incredible effort and persistance to f..k it up.

  70. Their response punctuates their obvious and blatant arrogance and contempt towards anyone and any system that counters them in any way. The right to petition is a practice in our country. They are now attacking the White House for providing a venue for the American people to voice themselves and be heard.

    Their arrogance, conceit and self-righteousness holds no bounds.

  71. Lynne, you make a VERY significant point here. I got involved in my last “ethics” cycle (I was a BC student) in early 2006 after getting off some overts to an ethics terminal. Then I was told to write up a brief record of the overts this LT, then threatened with expulsion, then made to listen to some pretty good LRH tapes on getting off OWs which said one got them off for relief and rise in responsibility, then a FULL OW writeup in the area (I had already been extensively sec checked on most of them already), THEN declared PTS, then forced to contribute 10 Gs to continue the ethics cycle, THEN told I needed to start buying sec check intensives……

    It became VERY clear to me that I could NEVER get off these overts. They would be “stuck to me” for years of tens of thousands of dollars of sec checking. Do you realize how completely contrary this is to LRH theory on the subject? You CANNOT… you are not ALLOWED to get off your overts/witholds and end cycle on them. Anything you say will continue to be used against you to make you wrong and OF COURSE… make you pay up, pay up. pay up for continuing to be degraded by others…..oh yeah, exchange, right. And if one is at all sane, one realizes that there are SO many better things to do in life than this.

  72. Alex castillo (Maybe not off topic?)

    Thank you Robert. ‘Tis the way I see it. Take care, don’t let the b..stards stop you in your personal quest for success.


  73. Alex castillo (Maybe not off topic?)

    Thank you Tom, let’s all beat our drums so loud that it will cause Miscavige’s ears to burst and make him run for cover :))


  74. Read this, all SCIENTOLOGISTS are now empowered to be IAS Field Diesseminators.

    That was first started in the mid 90s by the Pomerantz/Roberts travelling IAS Road Show for parishioners to reg each other. Even at that Time a substantial Portion of the Membership stopped showing up for these Events, and it was mostly a Number of OT Ambassadors trying to brown-nose some OT Eligibility Points bleeding down their VISA Cards. Serves them right. When the Donos & Attendances started to dry up, they’d call people to try and “Handle” those who were expected to show up. By 2001 they started to get real heavy on those “not contributing”, and that was a Year of major public Exodus. They are doing it all to themselves. I have no Idea what they are thinking beating People to be financially into the Ground for Decades expecting Scientology to expand. Even then it was quite apparent Scientology was most definitely shrinking exponentially. Well I guess by now it’s become quite cumulative.

  75. Alex castillo (Maybe not off topic?)

    Worsel, I agree.


  76. Haydn,
    Thanks for the story. DM’s inner workings are truly defiled.
    May all beings be well and happy!

  77. Alex,
    Very well written post.
    It took me back more than 30 years to the time when auditing in the formal church was open, fun, and effective.
    May all beings be well and happy!

  78. Karen#1,
    Thank you for the post. DM’s Scientology is now eating itself like an off-track capitalistic corporation motivated by greed.
    Much loving-kindness,

  79. RA,
    It appears the same way to me. The trend started over 20 years ago when I walked.
    May all beings be well and happy!

  80. wh,
    So beautiful. Last night we had a former monk over for a discussion. He told us about the revival in Sri Lanka which is gaining momentum. Over 100,000 young people attended a recent rally to learn about a return to the old Buddhist ways. My 19 year old daughter is going to Sri Lanka in a few weeks to visit temples, investigate the holy life, and report back to us.
    Much loving-kindness,

  81. TroubleShooter


    What is the biggest crime, truly suppressive, brain numbing and a violation of my reality in the extreme is that the IAS and OSA bots truly believe that THEY are who is saving the planet, without them it couldn’t be done. Auditors? Supervisors? C/Ses? peons in these guys eyes. If you want to be upstat be the top money-sucker of the week for donations that get you nothing but maybe a one-line commendation for you ethics file only to be followed by a KR on you the next week if you don’t keep your stats up…

    The people LRH says are the most valuable beings on the planet better stop being so damned humble and stop dramatizing the “granting so much beingness” false data and get busy actually BEING what LRH says they are and put ethics IN on the administration!!!

  82. Karen #1 — This comment rings so true!

    I really hate to keep nagging on this widow business, but this is a good place and topic on which to further comment.

    During Dr. Denk’s illness, we had an AO auditor in our home. His metered sessions were video’d. The auditor also filled out and turned in a daily “observation report.” She told me about this.

    When Dr. Price’s “To Whom It May Concern” letter came into our home, I sent a copy to RTC via the auditor with a note that Dr. Price was demonstrably not capable of handling the administration of the Shaw Health Center affairs due to the false data he had. In then end, Dr. Price took four long years to eventually buy out my half of the building.

    After Dr. Denk’s death, I requested an investigation regarding the matter through RTC and offered to help. Dr. Denk had been having trouble on Flag lines, through the Center and then we now had Dr. Price’s letter bringing up Dr. Denk’s work with LRH. There was no comm on this request and no investigation that involved me.

    After Dr. Denk’s death, my home trash was gone through.

    After Dr. Denk’s death, I had an immediate D of P and CS change through Flag.

    After Dr. Denk’s death, I was escorted off post and out of ASI. I asked “who” ordered the action but was never told. Instead, the T/HAS disappeared from the org.

    After I returned to post/ASI, I requested a B of I on the personnel change(s). This was never done as far as I know.

    When I eventually made it to Flag for a refresher (I had missed two during Dr. Denk’s illness), I was sec checked on “security” at ASI.

    That’s all I can think of for now. But, yes, what is expressed as willingness to help and cooperate by an individual becomes subverted into an intelligence activity by the “church.” This is extremely subversive and only leads to further trouble down the line, i.e. a well-stated and signed petition to the President of the United States.

    Thank you for all your help! L, Rachel

  83. Thank you, Alex, for this well-stated comment! I wouldn’t have made it these seven long years had I not earlier adopted this philosophy as “a way of life.” A minor example of this is, to this day I do a daily and weekly battle plan. These battle plans have become much more fun and productive since I have discovered other kindred souls. I personally love to work (produce!) and then enjoy the community we have now found here.

  85. Alex castillo ( A BIG REMINDER OF WHY WE ARE ALL HERE)

    This a reminder to us all of why we are here on this blog. At least that is the case for me. I don’t care about politics, other religions or other subjects, as interesting as they might be. Every action being taken by Mike and Marty. as far as I understand it is:
    REISSUED 15 JUNE 1970
    (Reissued 28.1.73 to correct a word [page 8,
    para 5]. Change in this type style.)

    Sthil Students
    Assn/Org Sec Hat
    HCO Sec Hat
    Case Sup Hat
    Ds of P Hat
    Ds of T Hat
    Staff Member Hat
    (issued May 1965)

    Note: Neglect of this Pol Ltr has caused great hardship on staffs, has cost countless millions and made it necessary in 1970 to engage in an all-out International effort to restore basic Scientology over the world. Within 5 years after the issue of this PL with me off the lines, violation had almost destroyed orgs. “Quickie grades” entered in and denied gain to tens of thousands of cases. Therefore actions which neglect or violate this Policy Letter are HIGH CRIMES resulting in Comm Evs on ADMINISTRATORS and EXECUTIVES. It is not “entirely a tech matter” as its neglect destroys orgs and caused a 2-year slump. IT IS THE BUSINESS OF EVERY STAFF MEMBER to enforce it.



    HCO Sec or Communicator Hat Check on all
    personnel and new Personnel as taken on.

    We have some time since passed the point of achieving uniformly workable technology.

    The only thing now is getting the technology applied.

    If you can’t get the technology applied then you can’t deliver what’s promised. It’s as simple as that. If you can get the technology applied, you can deliver what’s promised.

    The only thing you can be upbraided for by students or pcs is “no results”. Trouble spots occur only where there are “no results”. Attacks from governments or monopolies occur only where there are “no results” or “bad results”.

    Therefore the road before Scientology is clear and its ultimate success
    is assured if the technology is applied.

    So it is the task of the Assn or Org Sec, the HCO Sec, the Case
    Supervisor, the D of P, the D of T and all staff members to get the correct
    technology applied.

    Getting the correct technology applied consists of:

    One: Having the correct technology.

    Two: Knowing the technology.

    Three: Knowing it is correct.

    Four: Teaching correctly the correct technology.

    Five: Applying the technology.

    Six: Seeing that the technology is correctly applied.


    Seven: Hammering out of existence incorrect technology.

    Eight: Knocking out incorrect applications.

    Nine: Closing the door on any possibility of incorrect technology.

    Ten: Closing the door on incorrect application.

    One above has been done.

    Two has been achieved by many.

    Three is achieved by the individual applying the correct technology in a
    proper manner and observing that it works that way.

    Four is being done daily successfully in most parts of the world.

    Five is consistently accomplished daily.

    Six is achieved by instructors and supervisors consistently.

    Seven is done by a few but is a weak point.

    Eight is not worked on hard enough.

    Nine is impeded by the “reasonable” attitude of the not quite bright.

    Ten is seldom done with enough ferocity.

    Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten are the only places Scientology can bog down
    in any area.

    The reasons for this are not hard to find. (a) A weak certainty that it
    works in Three above can lead to weakness in Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. (b)
    Further, the not-too-bright have a bad point on the button Self-Importance.
    (c) The lower the IQ, the more the individual is shut off from the fruits of
    observation. (d) The service facs of people make them defend themselves
    against anything they confront, good or bad, and seek to make it wrong. (e)
    The bank seeks to knock out the good and perpetuate the bad.

    Thus, we as Scientologists and as an organization must be very alert to
    Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten.

    In all the years I have been engaged in research I have kept my comm
    lines wide open for research data. I once had the idea that a group could
    evolve truth. A third of a century has thoroughly disabused me of that idea.
    Willing as I was to accept suggestions and data, only a handful of suggestions
    (less than twenty) had long-run value and none were major or basic; and when I
    did accept major or basic suggestions and used them, we went astray and I
    repented and eventually had to “eat crow”.

    On the other hand there have been thousands and thousands of suggestions
    and writings which, if accepted and acted upon, would have resulted in the
    complete destruction of all our work as well as the sanity of pcs. So I know
    what a group of people will do and how insane they will go in accepting
    unworkable “technology”. By actual record the percentages are about twenty to
    100,000 that a group of human beings will dream up bad technology to destroy
    good technology. As we could have gotten along without suggestions, then, we
    had better steel ourselves to continue to do so now that we have made it. This
    point will, of course, be attacked as “unpopular”, “egotistical” and
    “undemocratic”. It very well may be. But it is also a survival point. And I
    don’t see that popular measures, self-abnegation and democracy have done
    anything for Man but push him further into the mud. Currently, popularity
    endorses degraded novels, self-abnegation has filled the South East Asian
    jungles with stone idols and corpses, and democracy has given us inflation and
    income tax.


    Our technology has not been discovered by a group. True, if the group had
    not supported me in many ways I could not have discovered it either. But it
    remains that if in its formative stages it was not discovered by a group, then
    group efforts, one can safely assume, will not add to it or successfully alter
    it in the future. I can only say this now that it is done. There remains, of
    course, group tabulation or co-ordination of what has been done, which will be
    valuable — only so long as it does not seek to alter basic principles and
    successful applications.

    The contributions that were worthwhile in this period of forming the
    technology were help in the form of friendship, of defense, of organization,
    of dissemination, of application, of advices on results and of finance. These
    were great contributions and were, and are, appreciated. Many thousands
    contributed in this way and made us what we are. Discovery contribution was
    not however part of the broad picture.

    We will not speculate here on why this was so or how I came to rise above
    the bank. We are dealing only in facts and the above is a fact — the group
    left to its own devices would not have evolved Scientology but with wild
    dramatization of the bank called “new ideas” would have wiped it out.
    Supporting this is the fact that Man has never before evolved workable mental
    technology and emphasizing it is the vicious technology he did evolve –
    psychiatry, psychology, surgery, shock treatment, whips, duress, punishment,
    etc, ad infinitum.

    So realize that we have climbed out of the mud by whatever good luck and
    good sense, and refuse to sink back into it again. See that Seven, Eight, Nine
    and Ten above are ruthlessly followed and we will never be stopped. Relax
    them, get reasonable about it and we will perish.

    So far, while keeping myself in complete communication with all
    suggestions, I have not failed on Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten in areas I could
    supervise closely. But it’s not good enough for just myself and a few others
    to work at this.

    Whenever this control as per Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten has been relaxed
    the whole organizational area has failed. Witness Elizabeth, N.J., Wichita,
    the early organizations and groups. They crashed only because I no longer did
    Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. Then, when they were all messed up, you saw the
    obvious “reasons” for failure. But ahead of that they ceased to deliver and
    that involved them in other reasons.

    The common denominator of a group is the reactive bank. Thetans without
    banks have different responses. They only have their banks in common. They
    agree then only on bank principles. Person to person the bank is identical. So
    constructive ideas are individual and seldom get broad agreement in a human
    group. An individual must rise above an avid craving for agreement from a
    humanoid group to get anything decent done. The bank-agreement has been what
    has made Earth a Hell — and if you were looking for Hell and found Earth, it
    would certainly serve. War, famine, agony and disease has been the lot of Man.
    Right now the great governments of Earth have developed the means of frying
    every Man, Woman and Child on the planet. That is Bank. That is the result of
    Collective Thought Agreement. The decent, pleasant things on this planet come
    from individual actions and ideas that have somehow gotten by the Group Idea.
    For that matter, look how we ourselves are attacked by “public opinion” media.
    Yet there is no more ethical group on this planet than ourselves.

    Thus each one of us can rise above the domination of the bank and then,
    as a group of freed beings, achieve freedom and reason. It is only the
    aberrated group, the mob, that is destructive.

    When you don’t do Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten actively, you are working
    for the Bank dominated mob. For it will surely, surely (a) introduce incorrect
    technology and swear by it, (b) apply technology as incorrectly as possible,
    (c) open the door to any destructive idea, and (d) encourage incorrect

    It’s the Bank that says the group is all and the individual nothing. It’s
    the Bank that says we must fail.


    So just don’t play that game. Do Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten and you will
    knock out of your road all the future thorns.

    Here’s an actual example in which a senior executive had to interfere
    because of a pc spin: A Case Supervisor told Instructor A to have Auditor B
    run Process X on Preclear C. Auditor B afterwards told Instructor A that “It
    didn’t work.” Instructor A was weak on Three above and didn’t really believe
    in Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. So Instructor A told the Case Supervisor
    “Process X didn’t work on Preclear C.” Now this strikes directly at each of
    One to Six above in Preclear C, Auditor B, Instructor A and the Case
    Supervisor. It opens the door to the introduction of “new technology” and to

    What happened here? Instructor A didn’t jump down Auditor B’s throat,
    that’s all that happened. This is what he should have done: grabbed the
    auditor’s report and looked it over. When a higher executive on this case did
    so she found what the Case Supervisor and the rest missed: that Process X
    increased Preclear C’s TA to 25 TA divisions for the session but that near
    session end Auditor B Qed and Aed with a cognition and abandoned Process X
    while it still gave high TA and went off running one of Auditor B’s own
    manufacture, which nearly spun Preclear C. Auditor B’s IQ on examination
    turned out to be about 75. Instructor A was found to have huge ideas of how
    you must never invalidate anyone, even a lunatic. The Case Supervisor was
    found to be “too busy with admin to have any time for actual cases”.

    All right, there’s an all too typical example. The Instructor should have
    done Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten. This would have begun this way. Auditor B:
    “That Process X didn’t work.” Instructor A: “What exactly did you do wrong?”
    Instant attack. “Where’s your auditor’s report for the session? Good. Look
    here, you were getting a lot of TA when you stopped Process X. What did you
    do?” Then the Pc wouldn’t have come close to a spin and all four of these
    would have retained certainty.

    In a year, I had four instances in one small group where the correct
    process recommended was reported not to have worked. But on review found that
    each one (a) had increased the TA, (b) had been abandoned, and (c) had been
    falsely reported as unworkable. Also, despite this abuse, in each of these
    four cases the recommended, correct process cracked the case. Yet they were
    reported as not having worked!

    Similar examples exist in instruction and these are all the more deadly
    as every time instruction in correct technology is flubbed, then the resulting
    error, uncorrected in the auditor, is perpetuated on every pc that auditor
    audits thereafter. So Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten are even more important in a
    course than in supervision of cases.

    Here’s an example: A rave recommendation is given a graduating student
    “because he gets more TA on pcs than any other student on the course!” Figures
    of 435 TA divisions a session are reported. “Of course his model session is
    poor but it’s just a knack he has” is also included in the recommendation. A
    careful review is undertaken because nobody at Levels 0 to IV is going to get
    that much TA on pcs. It is found that this student was never taught to read an
    E-Meter TA dial! And no instructor observed his handling of a meter and it was
    not discovered that he “overcompensated” nervously, swinging the TA 2 or 3
    divisions beyond where it needed to go to place the needle at “set”. So
    everyone was about to throw away standard processes and model session because
    this one student “got such remarkable TA”. They only read the reports and
    listened to the brags and never looked at this student. The pcs in actual fact
    were making slightly less than average gain, impeded by a rough model session
    and misworded processes. Thus, what was making the pcs win (actual
    Scientology) was hidden under a lot of departures and errors.

    I recall one student who was squirreling on an Academy course and running
    a lot of off-beat whole track on other students after course hours. The Academy
    students were in a state of electrification on all these new experiences and
    weren’t quickly brought under control and the student himself never was given
    the works on Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten so they stuck. Subsequently, this
    student prevented another squirrel from being straightened out and his wife
    died of cancer resulting from


    physical abuse. A hard, tough Instructor at that moment could have salvaged two
    squirrels and saved the life of a girl. But no, students had a right to do
    whatever they pleased.

    Squirreling (going off into weird practices or altering Scientology) only
    comes about from non-comprehension. Usually the non-comprehension is not of
    Scientology but some earlier contact with an off-beat humanoid practice which
    in its turn was not understood.

    When people can’t get results from what they think is standard practice,
    they can be counted upon to squirrel to some degree. The most trouble in the
    past two years came from orgs where an executive in each could not assimilate
    straight Scientology. Under Instruction in Scientology they were unable to
    define terms or demonstrate examples of principles. And the orgs where they
    were got into plenty of trouble. And worse, it could not be straightened out
    easily because neither one of these people could or would duplicate
    instructions. Hence, a debacle resulted in two places, directly traced to
    failures of instruction earlier. So proper instruction is vital. The D of T
    and his Instructors and all Scientology Instructors must be merciless in
    getting Four, Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten into effective action. That one
    student, dumb and impossible though he may seem and of no use to anyone, may
    yet some day be the cause of untold upset because nobody was interested enough
    to make sure Scientology got home to him.

    With what we know now, there is no student we enrol who cannot be properly
    trained. As an Instructor, one should be very alert to slow progress and
    should turn the sluggards inside out personally. No system will do it, only
    you or me with our sleeves rolled up can crack the back of bad studenting and
    we can only do it on an individual student, never on a whole class only. He’s
    slow = something is awful wrong. Take fast action to correct it. Don’t wait
    until next week. By then he’s got other messes stuck to him. If you can’t
    graduate them with their good sense appealed to and wisdom shining, graduate
    them in such a state of shock they’ll have nightmares if they contemplate
    squirreling. Then experience will gradually bring about Three in them and
    they’ll know better than to chase butterflies when they should be auditing.

    When somebody enrols, consider he or she has joined up for the duration
    of the universe — never permit an “open-minded” approach. If they’re going to
    quit let them quit fast. If they enrolled, they’re aboard, and if they’re
    aboard, they’re here on the same terms as the rest of us — win or die in the
    attempt. Never let them be half-minded about being Scientologists. The finest
    organizations in history have been tough, dedicated organizations. Not one
    namby-pamby bunch of panty-waist dilettantes have ever made anything. It’s a
    tough universe. The social veneer makes it seem mild. But only the tigers
    survive — and even they have a hard time. We’ll survive because we are tough
    and are dedicated. When we do instruct somebody properly he becomes more and
    more tiger. When we instruct half-mindedly and are afraid to offend, scared to
    enforce, we don’t make students into good Scientologists and that lets
    everybody down. When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that
    wandering doubt in her eye into a fixed, dedicated glare and she’ll win and
    we’ll all win. Humor her and we all die a little. The proper instruction
    attitude is, “You’re here so you’re a Scientologist. Now we’re going to make
    you into an expert auditor no matter what happens. We’d rather have you dead
    than incapable.”

    Fit that into the economics of the situation and lack of adequate time
    and you see the cross we have to bear.

    But we won’t have to bear it forever. The bigger we get the more
    economics and time we will have to do our job. And the only things which can
    prevent us from getting that big fast are areas in from One to Ten, Keep those
    in mind and we’ll be able to grow. Fast. And as we grow our shackles will be
    less and less. Failing to keep One to Ten, will make us grow less.

    So the ogre which might eat us up is not the government or the High
    Priests. It’s our possible failure to retain and practice our technology.


    An Instructor or Supervisor or Executive must challenge with ferocity
    instances of “unworkability”. They must uncover what did happen, what was run
    and what was done or not done.

    If you have One and Two, you can only acquire Three for all by making sure
    of all the rest.

    We’re not playing some minor game in Scientology. It isn’t cute or
    something to do for lack of something better.

    The whole agonized future of this planet, every Man, Woman and Child on
    it, and your own destiny for the next endless trillions of years depend on
    what you do here and now with and in Scientology.

    This is a deadly serious activity. And if we miss getting out of the trap
    now, we may never again have another chance.

    Remember, this is our first chance to do so in all the endless trillions
    of years of the past. Don’t muff it now because it seems unpleasant or
    unsocial to do Seven, Eight, Nine and Ten.

    Do them and we’ll win.

    Dear Mr. Rathbun,

    your exposure of the OSA South Park operations has made its way to editorial offices of major german newspapers, in this case the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”:

    Thanks a lot for all your dedicated work.
