The Miscavige Myth





Thus we see that failure to discover Truth brings about stupidity.

Thus we see that the discovery of Truth would bring about
an As-is-ness by actual experiment.

Thus we see that an ultimate truth would have no time,
place, form or event.

Thus, then, we perceive that we can achieve a persistence
only when we mask a truth.

Axioms of Scientology, L Ron Hubbard


It was February 14th 1992 and Ted Kopple’s Nightline  was being beamed or cabled to America. Sitting across from him was David Miscavige.

Koppel  began his program with the following introduction:

“Joining us live tonight is David Miscavige who’s formal title is Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center.The Organization that manages Dianetics and Scientology.

“David Miscavige took over as the head of Scientology in 1987 following the death of Scientology’s founder L Ron Hubbard”

While Miscavige sat there like the proverbial tar baby from the book Uncle Tom’s Cabin not saying a word to correct Koppel.

First of all. The Religious Technology Center does not manage Scientology and Dianetics. They manage the trademarks and service marks of the subjects while another organization known as the Church of Spiritual Technology manages its copyrights and can according to its articles of incorporation and bylaws has the option to assume control of the trademarks and service marks if the Trustees of that organization feel that RTC has falling into hostile hands making CST the crown of Dianetics and Scientology.

Secondly neither of these entities are involved in the actual management of the Churches of Scientology or any Dianetic Organization. This duty was assigned to the Church of Scientology International. The corporate entity that replaced the Church of Scientology of California as the “Mother Church”.

The documents relating to the above can be found here.

Next Ted says that “David Miscavige took over as the head of Scientology in 1987 following the death of Scientology’s founder L Ron Hubbard” which is contrary to the following policy:


There is no succession of myself to be worked out in any identity regardless of what happens to me simply because I did the original work and as it is done there is no reason to have a succession for it as it is itself.



Thus Miscavige is by definition a “pretender” which is defined as:


a person who pretendsespecially for a dishonest purpose.

an aspirant or claimant (often followed by to):

a pretender to the throne.
a person who makes unjustified or false claims, statements, etc., as about personal status, abilities, intentions, or the like: a pretender to literary genius.

 The Pretensions of David Miscavige

The fact is that the organizations of Scientology and Dianetics were never entirely controlled by any one individual. The first organization the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation was controlled by a Board of Directors succeeded by Boards for the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International and eventually the Church of Scientology of California which was founded by J Burton Farber on February 18th 1954.

All policies and directives pertaining to the running of Dianetic and Scientology Organization whether written by Hubbard personally or by someone on his behalf after being approved by the International Board where accepted by the Board of the Church of Scientology of California:

Below that echelon were the Executive Directors then Advisory and Executive Councils followed by their respective committees. Below this were the Executives and Secretaries of the Divisions and Department of Scientology’s Organization Board.

What would seem like a Byzantine structure of management but one that would work effectively until the restructuring of the Scientology Network in the late seventies and early eighties. Something I’ll cover later.

As anyone can see. The Executive Director originally  was the most senior executive on the original Organizing Board:

Like the Grade Chart that was developed at around the same time. Any later Organizing Board would be a variation of the same theme.

Hubbard was the first Executive Director International before resigning from that position on September 1st 1966:

Remimeo Board Members

Executive Directors



Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex



(Revised, 8 May 1973, to more accurately reflect the corporate realities existing since the time of original issue not hitherto made absolutely clear.)

In that new boards of directors are being elected for the various corporations and their branches, I am resigning the title of Executive Director and in accordance with a resolution of the general meeting of charter members am being given the title of “Founder” instead.

Hereinafter all See EDs (now named “Executive Directives” or EDs) will be signed for the Boards of Directors.

The “Office of LRX’ remains as before. The designation ED does not change.

All Org Boards should change the top line Executive Director to “Founder” in letters of similar size.

None of this changes various communication lines, but Policy Letters are hereafter to be accepted or nullified by Boards of Directors in their regular meetings.

All Policy Letters since the date of issue of the original Policy Letter 1 Sept 1966 “Founder” have been written in fact for the Boards of Directors.

The signature of the Boards of Directors of the Churches of Scientology islegal on any Policy Letter issued by the Hubbard Communications Office, Saint Hill Manor East Grinstead, Sussex from I Sept 1966 and gives any Policy Letter so signed its full force as Policy.

I have not for a long while received pay from any organization and my services are wholly volunteer.

There are considerable outstanding sums loaned by’me to orgs or owed to me by orgs and these should be paid as feasible, carrying me as a creditor in Disbursement Files.

I have worked long to stabilize and expand orgs and to complete technology and policies and am resigning on a high statistic.

I am still available for consultation and for signature.

It is called to attention that the signature available is that of L. Ron Hubbard as a writer, and not that of L. Ron Hubbard an individual. As the two s4qnatures, may become somewhat confused, the distinction is emphasized by this re-issue.

My Office of LRH as Founder remains mine as the public demonstrably stays away from orgs that do not bear the name “L. Ron Hubbard” and I do not wish to damage their “traffic” volume.

This is not a retirement but is a resignation from all director posts and the conducting of organizations by myself.

Organizations have now proven they can manage themselves and with mainly Clears and OTs in charge should come to no grief.


This affects all corporate structures in that I am not now a board member.

Bank accounts need no longer bear my signature but as they are so numerous and the task of changing them so great, I leave this to the new Boards to accomplish when they can.

I would appreciate the new boards holding early meetings to review or accept policy and bank mandates as soon as possible as I wish to remain available to answer any questions.

On specific request, as a writer, I will write books on Scientology, its organization, and will write HCOBs and Policy Letters as requested. This is my writer hat.

by L. Ron Hubbard

Eventually these Boards of Directors would consist of the various Boards consisting of CST which would be the highest echelon as covered earlier and below that would be RTC followed by CSI.

How this makes Miscavige any kind of “head” or “leader” when he is actually playing second fiddle is totally based on perpetuated ignorance. Either individually or as I suspect a conspiracy of silence about the existence of the Church of Spiritual Technology.

Scientology’s Best Keep Secret

The fact that CST even exists is one of Scientology’s best kept secrets. If it is even mentioned at all it is defined as a repository of the writings and lectures of L Ron Hubbard on the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology.

In other words a vast Scientology library. In fact the organization uses the title “L Ron Hubbard Library”. Yet the fact is that the requirements for being a trustee for this organization are the most stringent. In order to be and remain a Trustee one has to be trained to the the highest levels of Scientology Technology and Administration.

That is one has to be a Class XII Auditor and Flag Executive Briefing Graduate.

Even the most current Organization board does not show this organization:

As we see in the Command Channels of Scientology  which takes Byzantine to a whole new level CST is not even given an honorable mention nor does it make a cameo appearance.

At the top is placed RTC as if hovering over the organization like a vulture.

The probable reason why Miscavige never sought a place on the CST’s Board of Trustees is because he is so ignorant of Scientology Policy and Technology. As can be seen in this affidavit. Somehow the author of this piece suspects that nothing much has changed since and that Miscavige remains ignorant of basic Scientology policy and technology.

Many years ago Miscavige claimed to have to located the “why” for training failures was that the “blind were leading the blind”. Looking back at the irony.
