SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY AND SCIENTOLOGISTS
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 23 DECEMBER 1965RB
It looked like the Church was going to crumble – that it was finished. But that didn’t happen. Because some people saw what was going on and moved in and overthrew the Guardian’s Office, the off policy and corrupt individuals were dismissed.
David Miscavige’s IAS speech, 8 October 1993
When further investigation proved the documents to be
authentic, it was made clear that we had no choice but to
overthrow the GO and dismiss everyone who had violated Church
policy or the law. These activities ultimately led to a complete
disband of the GO.
Riverside County Court Declaration
February 8th 1994
It is interesting that David Miscavige the current head ,at least according to Ted Koppel’s Nightline and other media outlets but not by any Scientology directive granting him such ecclesiastical authority , would admit to committing what is known in Scientology policy or scripture as a Suppressive Act or High Crime.
In the above declaration he goes on about how secretive the GO or Guardian’s Office was yet at the time there was no Committee of Evidence or Board of Investigation that presented any findings which supported his argument that the GO was such existential threat of any kind.
In my opinion and these articles since they are mine are written from my perspective and in my view the GO was entrapped by the FBI and the so called Justice Department using a covert operative by the name of Michael Meisner as an agent provocateur.
That said I am not here to argue the validity of the accusations against the GO but merely pointing that even though remedies existed within policy for whatever the GO did or may have done. The fact is that the new Management at the time choose not to apply these remedies and as Miscavige says overthrew the existing Management at the time.
Of course very few tears were shed for the Guardian’s Office at the time since it had itself became a state within a state to a greater or lesser degree and very secretive in its actual activities and intentions much like the Sea Org would become.
Funny how that goes? But not unexpected to anyone who has more than a rudimentary understanding of what is known in Scientology as the “technology” or the tech.
Yet most Scientologists were unaware of the Battle Royale that had occurred behind the scenes. In fact Hubbard himself would not be made aware of the purge of the most senior executives of the Organization until several months later.
In my next I will answer to the best of my knowledge the question “where was Ron?”.
