The Lies and Deceit of the Church of Scientology Part 1 I am prompted to make this post as a result of reading the story of Carmel on this board and learning of the lies and deceitfully destructive behavior levied against her by the organizational “hit-squad” team of the church. I have not told “my story” on the board. Only some parts of my experience have been given, mainly from the perspective of the value of the positive experiences to be had from the use of workable tech, from whatever sources, as presented on this board. This post, also, is only a part of my story. It’s the part to do with the lies of the org and its attempt to destroy me. I am posting here with some copies of actual documentation to add weight to the veracity of Carmel’s bravely told history. Mine is simply another example of the level of lies, deceit, manipulation of dominated minions, and such that the organization stoops to to cover up its malpractices and malfeasance. As Dart so crassly announced to the world when I first came on the board, I did do work for “B1” (the forerunner of OSA). So there is a little history that needs to be cleaned up on that—and it is part of this story. As has already been posted on the board by me, I was wrongly assigned a “Condition of Enemy” by a Sea Org Mission in London in April 1968. In those days, such was applied as though one had been declared suppressive, and I was routed off staff. There are some other unbelievably stupid actions carried out by “the org” in the period that followed, but I’ll keep those for another entertaining tale on another occasion. How stupid? Try this for size. In July 1968, International Life Insurance Company, a client of mine, had 10,000 salesmen throughout the UK, and the company wanted me to repeat the magical performance of sales training using my old PE lecture and Comm Course materials throughout the company. I was so successful, four attendees on my first course went into the org for more services while actually on my sales training course. Learning I was doing these courses (perfectly on policy and in tech) the twits in the org wrote to my client telling them the action was not sanctioned by them, a “violation of their copyright” and that they would be sued if they persisted. You would have thought they’d have given their eye-teeth for 10,000 new bodies in the shop . . . . not that bright! What is even more stupid, this brilliance by me of scaring the org with 10,000 demanding new public actually earned me being assigned the newly released condition of Treason . . . then the lowest condition assignable. You’d have thought they’d see me as a hero! Hell no! In any event, while I was off staff, I earned a living doing sales training and marketing consulting. And one man who asked me for advice during this period was a fellow by the name of John Fairer-Smith. It was by coincidence he and I were using the same accommodation address/temporary business office facility John was running a one-man private detective-cum-security business, and when he asked me for advice, I replied that: “I’ll start on Monday for a percent of the extra business I bring you!” Thus it happened we ended up as partners, with his wife, in the business which was eventually noted in this large, leading article in the Business Section of the New York Times in 1977. Such was the position and international influence we had developed in the intervening 8 years. (I am the fellow in the background at the “Assassination Chart.” (I tried to slot the image here, but photobucket only lets be slug in link But the document comes up on the link.) We counted as our clients the crème d’ la crème of the international business mover-and-shaker set. The insider boys who get “it” done while others only wonder “how.” As additional information, I should tell you what John’s background had been. He had been in the Special Branch of Internal Security for S. Rhodesia, coincidently when Hubbard was screwing up out there. And John knew the Hubbard scene rather well. And I can tell you from an insider’s perspective, that that the last thing the S. Rhodesian government and its security service (and that of S. Africa, also) wanted at that time while the communists were trying all kinds of tricks to infiltrate the countries by stirring up the black population (as had been the history elsewhere in Africa), was a weird, too flamboyant American playing games with the natives and trying to “empower them.” This particularly so with a “new religion.” (Remember, the early 1960’s was the height of the cold war.) The security professionals had seen all this kind of caper causing trouble before around the world . . . indeed it is part of routine training for security pro’s like the FBI to be alert for such capers. But Hubbard “knew best.” Additionally, John was trained by MI6, (he was a British national whose father managed Lord Cowdrey’s estates in Rhodesia—Cowdrey, at the time owned the Financial Times of London) and was for a period the director in charge of intelligence in Europe for both Rhodesia and S. Africa as part of their effort to stem communist infiltration and activities against those countries. This in the period up till the end of 1969-70 when I met him. As to my “B1” activities, it also coincidently happened while I was “persona non grata” on org lines. I became aware of a security breach and threat and reported it to Mo Budlong, whom I knew, then in charge of B1 ops for GO WW. And he recruited me to work undercover with him for the church. Then, as things developed, it turned out the resources I had due to the business partnership with John Fairer-Smith, were enormously helpful to the church. I had become a member of The International Chiefs of Police Association, for example, etc., etc. I had extraordinary contacts and resources. Needless to say, there are many tales, but not to be told for the moment, except to say that in the eyes of the Scientology field, I was a bad boy and “off lines” while at the same time receiving services at St. Hill under an alias name. Though I will say, that that kind of game is no picnic, and not what I wanted or would have chosen, but did it “for the greatest good” and based on the fact that I had found myself in a unique position to help the church with the resources developed. In November, 1979 I came to the US to set up the New York office of the company. In 1981, I sold my interest in the business as I had decided to come out form “under cover” in the US, be a full time student to complete all training both tech and management (I was already fully paid to Class 8 and FEBC), and then join the SO. Then the various shits hit the fan . . . . Part 2 to follow . . . .
