After resisting the topic somewhat I find myself on a roll here. The question of who is behind this “Ideal Org” can probably answered by asking cui bono or who benefits? One rule of thumb used by the FBI in forensic accounting is “follow the money”.
One follows the money or asks who benefits especially in the case of real estate and one finds all kinds of shady characters such as speculators and various shadowy contractors. Many who can be found on the honor roll of the Church of Scientology’s International Association of Scientologists or IAS some who have dark connections to the deep state.
To the few this rush to buy up property is a wind fall!
In the past the buying or renting of property was left to individual Church’s of Scientology who purchased or rented them based on their individual income from the sale and delivery of Scientology services, such as auditing and training.
Much of the work involved in renovations was done by the staff and public volunteers.
Sometime in the late seventies, early eighties after the Sea Org Junta took over the purchase of Scientology properties was turned over to a properties management group within the Sea Organization that would purchase Orgs through what were called Sea Org Reserves or SORs.
In other words the properties were purchased by the Sea Org and the organization paid rent which was included as part of their expenses to management.
Fast forward to “Ideal Orgs” which are ideal orgs in name only as anyone can see by reading the actual policy.
Sometime in the eighties the Old Man wrote a policy entitled Misrepresentation of Dianetics and Scientology and even though this policy mainly covers technical delivery of the subject. This so called “Ideal Orgs” concept is a perfect example:
Someone was doing something else and calling it Dianetics and Scientology.
This is, of course, misrepresentation and a violation of trademark and copyright law.
A similar circumstance would occur if someone put transmission Gil in a package marked “Green Meadow Butter” and sold it and advised its use as “Green Meadow Butter” when it isn’t.
One could say that “Ideal Orgs” is the “Green Meadow Butter” of Scientology administrative policy presented here:

THE IDEAL ORG
(First appeared as LRH ED 102 Int, 20 May 70, referring to evaluation)
The ideal org would be an activity where people came to achieve freedom and where they had confidence they would attain it.
It would have enough space in which to train, process and administrate with- out crowding.
It would be located where the public could identify and find it.
It would be busy looking, with staff in motion, not standing about.
It would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public.
Its files and papers, baskets and lines would be in good order.
The org board would be up-to-date and where the public could see who and what was where and which the staff would use for routing and action.
A heavy outflow of letters and mailings would be pouring out.
Answers would be pouring in.
Auditors would be auditing in Div 4 HGC and Qual would be rather empty.
Supervisors would be training students interestedly and 2-way comming all slows.
The HCO Area Sec would have hats for everyone. And checked out on everyone.
There would be a pool of people in training to take over new admin and tech posts.
The staff would be well paid because they were productive.
The Public Divisions would be buzzing with effective action and new people and furnishing a torrent of new names to CF.
The pcs would be getting full Grades to ability attained for each, not eight
minutes from 0 to IV, but more like thirty processes. And they would be leaving with high praises.
The students would be graduating all on fire to audit.
One could look at this ideal org and know that this was the place a new civilization was being established for this planet.
The thousand or more actions that made it up would dovetail smoothly one with another.
And the PR area control would be such that no one would dream of threat- ening it.
Such an ideal org would be built by taking what one has and step by step building and smoothing; grooving in and handling each of its functions, with each of its divisions doing more and more of its full job better and better.
The business is always there-the skill with which it is handled and the re- sults on pcs and students is the single important line which makes it possible to build the rest.
The ideal org is the image one builds toward. It is the product of the caus- ative actions of many. Anything which is short of an ideal org is an outpoint that can be put right. The end product is not just an ideal org but a new civilization already on its way.

The Case of the Mutated Carrot
So how did all this get started?
Well back in the early nineties sometime after the release of OT VIII which I’ll discuss further in another article. Management set an almost impossible bar to achieve prior to the release of the OT Levels above OT VIII and that was that all orgs had to achieve the size of old Saint Hill.
Traditionally it used to be that enough Pre OTs were gotten through the previous level to make releasing the next level worth while.
The only reason that it took so much time to release OT VIII was that the preliminary step New Era Dianetics for OTs had to be developed first. In fact a description of what OT VIII was had been released in the late sixties to those on the Class VIII Course and notes on what the OT levels above that and what each ability attained should be was written sometime in the mid seventies but were never compiled and released.
As I’ve written earlier the Grade Chart was initially a guide on what processes to use where and when on the PC and Pre OT.
Many of the processes used in what are called the levels had existed long before the Grade Chart itself was developed as discussed earlier.
After the release of OT VIII Hubbard turned over the release of future OT Levels to the current management. This is covered in his last Ron’s Journal RJ 39.
Well after Ron moved on. The current management became involved in other things other than going over Ron’s previous, notes, lectures, books, etc. and finding what processes or actions to run to achieve the end result of each OT level above VIII and compiling them into levels as had been done in the past.
Instead they decided to use these levels as some kind of carrot. A carrot that began with getting every Organization in the world to achieve Saint Hill size and later would mutate to “Ideal Orgs”.
“Ideal Orgs” actually just another distraction from actually training auditors and making OTs, like various other actions and pet projects conceived by so called “management”. Once again more money is diverted from what are considered the main and most important valuable final products which is well trained auditors and PC and Pre OTs audited to a certain level.
Management has for decades since assuming control of the Organization has been doing something else and calling it “Scientology”. This is obvious to anyone who has a practical understanding of the subject which is probably why they divert people to what are called the basics so that they can get lost in the philosophical wonderland.
