    Can anybody give me a link to a reference that details steps A to E for a declared SP?

    I no longer have any Scn references for this and I can't find one on Google. I can find plenty of declares saying the person's next step is A to E, but not anything that outlines what the steps are and the old memory is too vague to call the steps to mind.

    Thanks in advance for any help on tracking down a reference.

    HCO PL 16 May 1980 ISSUE II, "ETHICS SUPPRESSIVE ACTS, SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY & SCIENTOLOGISTS" may be it. More likely HCOPL 7 March 1965RB Issue I, revised 8 January 1991, Suppressive Acts Suppression of Scientology and Scientologists.

    You looking to get back in?

    I suggest you contact either the local Ethics Officer, or an OSA representative.
    I'm sure they can help out.

    Or you may want to write either the International Justice Chief, or the Continental Justice Chief.

    In the meantime. You can start writing up all your overts and withholds.
    Work your way up through the conditions and determine a way to strike an effective blow against any anti-scientology groups you have been supporting.

    Please remember that there is a specific policy against anyone getting any Processing as long as the SQUIRREL orgainzation you were a member of is still in existence. So if you are going to even consider going up your bridge, you will have to find a way to dismantle any SQUIRREL organization you have been involved.

    Then, you will have to find a way to disconnect from any antagonistic individuals, including family members.

    By then, you may have gotten a reply back on how to handle your A through J steps.

    Its not a lot to ask to rejoin the group that is the ONLY HOPE FOR MANKIND.

    Your eternity is waiting.

    Start!

    No, I'm simply looking for a reference to what the actual steps are! So often referred to but apparently so hard to find on the internet!

    Thanks.

    The above link features excerpts from the December 1965 Hubbard Policy Letter; the original March 7, 1965 was more explicit, openly condoning first degree murder, arson, etc., and was later modified, slightly, (23 December) for legal reasons.

    "[Suppressive acts] include 1st degree murder, arson, disintegration of persons or belongings not guilty of suppressive acts." (Third paragraph in the below link):

    http://forum.exscn.net/showpost.php?p=64970&postcount=41

    There is also a 1992 toned down version of this HCOPL, that is mainly used as PR display, much as the 'Creed' is used, or the 'Way to Happiness' booklet, or other items Scientology likes to show people as part of a "PR handling."

    Scientology's "Support" (euphemism for attack) Tech is mostly confidential, and the Fair Game Law violated confidentiality classification by being a non-remimeo issue (for members only, inside the organization, but not confidential). Anything, for example, that is in the 'Green Volumes', 'Green Volume' Management Series, etc., is not confidential.

    I was just comparing the HCO POLICY LETTER OF 23 DECEMBER 1965 with the 1991 revision.

    The A-E steps changed quite a bit in 1991. Hell, they even changed the name! Does anyone know who ml.cden are? And who might LRH Technical Research and Compilations be referring to?

    Can anyone say if the changes really came from LRH or DM?



    Here’s the 1965 version:

    OEC Vol 1 copyright 1980 pages 552-557 (only 5 pages long!)

    HCO POLICY LETTER OF 23 DECEMBER 1965


    ETHICS SUPPRESSIVE ACTS SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY AND SCIENTOLOGISTS THE FAIR GAME LAW


    LRH:ml.cden Copyright (c) 1965 by L. Ron Hubbard ALL RIGHTS RESERVED


    A. Tells the person or group to stop committing present time overts and to cease all attacks and suppressions so he, she or they can get a case gain;


    B. Requires a public announcement to the effect that they realize their actions were ignorant and unfounded and stating where possible the influences or motivations which caused them to attempt to suppress or attack Scientology; gets it signed before witnesses and published broadly, particularly to persons directly influenced or formerly associated with the former offender or offenders. The letter should be calculated to expose any conspiracy to suppress Scientology or the preclear or Scientologist if such existed;


    B(1). Requires that all debts owed to Scientology organizations are paid off;


    C. Requires training beginning at HAS at their expense if Division 4 (Training and Processing) will have the person or the group members;


    D. Makes a note of the matter with copies of the statement and files in the Ethics files;


    E. Informs the Chairman at Saint Hill and forwards a duplicate of the original copy which shows signatures.




    Here’s the 1991 revision:

    OEC Vol 1 pages 873 – 889 (16 pages long!)


    HCO POLICY LETTER OF 23 DECEMBER 1965RB

    REVISED 8 JANUARY 1991

    SUPPRESSIVE ACTS SUPPRESSION OF SCIENTOLOGY AND SCIENTOLOGISTS


    Revision assisted by
    LRH Technical Research
    and Compilations

    A. Tells the person or group to stop committing present time overts and to cease

    all attacks and suppressions so he, she or they can get a case gain;

    B. Requires a public announcement to the effect that they realize their actions were ignorant and unfounded and stating where possible the influences or motivations which caused them to attempt to suppress or attack Scientology; gets it signed before witnesses and published broadly, particularly to persons directly influenced or formerly associated with the former offender or offenders. The letter should be calculated to expose any conspiracy to suppress Scientology or the preclear or Scientologist if such existed;

    B1. Requires that all debts owed to Scientology organizations or missions are
    paid off;

    B2. May require that, subject to the approval of the International Justice Chief, an amends project suitable and commensurate with the severity and extent of the suppressive acts committed be completed before further A to E steps are undertaken;

    Before any such amends project is begun, the person must submit an Amends Project Petition to the International Justice Chief, using full CSW and stating what he proposes to do as amends, and this must be approved by the International Justice Chief to be considered valid. (Ref: HCO PL 1 May 65, STAFF MEMBER REPORTS, and HCO PL 1 May 65 II, ORDER BOARD AND TIME MACHINE) Evidence of genuine ethics change may be required before approval of the amends project is given. (Examples of such evidence might be, depending upon the high crimes committed: the person has obtained an honest job; has paid off all debts owed to others; valid contributions have been made to the community; the person has totally ceased those actions for which he was declared, etc.);

    It is also within the power of the International Justice Chief, when approving an Amends Project Petition, to require, as a protector of the Church and its tenets and membership, that such amends project be carried out entirely off any Scientology organization, mission or network lines, and to require, before the amends project may be considered complete, extensive evidence over a protracted period of time that the person has, beyond any doubt, ceased his or her suppressive actions, has created no problems for the Church or any member of the Church in any way on any line, and has undertaken and completed
    an action which is clearly and undeniably of benefit to mankind;

    C. Requires training beginning at the lowest level of the Bridge at their expense if executives in charge of training will have the person or the group members;

    D. Makes a note of all of the above matters with copies of the statement and files in the ethics files of those concerned;

    E. Informs the International Justice Chief and forwards a duplicate of the original statements which show signatures.

    The new step B2 is horrendous, and is used to extract more cash
    from those attempting to do these steps.

    I know of one case where as part of the IJC requirements the person had to get divorced before being allowed to do A-E.

    Ambiguous

    Ya step B2 is totally ambiguous to say the least. It leaves it to the justice chief to put you through what ever and as much hell as he/she sees fit.

    It also makes it one hell of a lot harder to come back into the church.

    What I would like is if someone who was in LRH Technical Research
    and Compilations when this was revised in 1991 could come forward and tell us the story behind the change.

    Did DM order it ? . . . . well, of course he did. . . .but what lead to the change ? and what were his intentions behind the change?

    That would be a fun story to know.
