  Early 1966

Early in 1966, the LRH Finance Committee had been established to determine how much the Church owed Hubbard. In September, Hubbard told the press he had forgiven the Church a $13 million debt. The LRH Finance Committee had however failed to document the millions Hubbard had taken out of the Church. The Committee had appraised Saint Hill as having a business goodwill value of £2 million (the estate itself was valued at less than £100,000). The Committee also included such items as the purchase price of the yacht used by Hubbard for his Alaska trip in 1940. All part of the Hubbard's "research," from which the Church purportedly benefited.

  SECED 52 11 February 1966 Committee For Sane Psychiatry

2. We are forming a "Committee for Sane Psychiatry" that will be charged with the responsibility of bringing to the attention of the world the brutal treatment and sex orgies in institutions and drive psychiatry into accepting lawful regulation by Parliament and Congress.

4. Case histories of brutal savage treatment are to be collected and the lurid nature of "treatment" is to be fully documented and exposed by the Committee.

L. Ron Hubbard

Correct target -LRH - Psychiatry is guilty of patient abuses.

  HCOPL 17 February 1966 Public Investigation Section

The Public Investigation Section is formed in Division 1, Dept 3, as Section 5.

It is composed wholly of professional investigators. The section may never be used on Ethics Section matters but may work with Ethics when an ex-Scientologist is involved.

The statistic of the section is dual consisting of the number of cases successfully investigated on specific projects and the number of derogatory news stories appearing that week related to enemies of Scientology...

It will be seen that the section has all the useful functions of an Intelligence and propaganda agency.

The determination of what a project is is simple - what agency or groups is attacking Scientology? The Section investigates the attacking group's individual members and sees that the results of the investigation get adequate Legal action and publicity.

Standard intelligence procedures are used.

Public solicitation for cases of injury to the rights or liberty concerned with that project can obtain leads. Anyone writing in a complaint is then sent a copy of the form to fill in... The pattern of the form is based on the data needful to get a conviction. The more fruitful of such forms are followed up by individual investigators. These obtain the data necessary for a conviction of the individual complained about who is a member of the attacking group.

No act which will make an investigator liable to criminal prosecution may be ordered.

18 Feb
  HCOPL of 18 February 1966 Attacks On Scientology

The Third Group of Actions have been positive in stopping attacks:

G.3.1. Investigating noisily the attackers;

G.3.2. Not being guilty of anything;

G.3.6. Refunding money to dissatisfied people;

It is a curious phenomenon that the action of investigation alone is head and shoulders above all other actions.

Thus, they are not hard to defeat providing one (A) looks for their hidden crimes and (B) is irreproachable in his conduct himself.

These people who attack have secrets. And hidden crimes. They are afraid. I can count several heavy attacks which folded up by our noisily beginning an investigation of the attacker.

  HCO Exec Letter of 21 February 1966 The Calculated Risk

The calculated risk taken on 23 January 1963, has paid off.

On that date I saw that when the gun-waving Federal Marshals stormed the Church in Washington, we were in for a series of raids and enturbulent actions by governments.
Therefore, as the officers of the various areas can tell you, I ordered them to fight a delaying action while I completed the research.

The strategy was this - the only thing which would ultimately win for us was total technology. If I interrupted research to swat flies, we might lose. Therefore I handed over most of the defense to others and speeded up research.

By working 18 hours a day on research and the rest on administrative matters, by August of 1965 I had the full answers to total freedom.

Well, the calculated risk paid off. The ultimate "weapon" was attained... The ultimate weapon is total freedom.

L. Ron Hubbard

Contrary facts - LRH

The research done in the late 1960's on OT 3 and in the 1970s on New Era Dianetics for OTs, indicates LRH did not have the full answers to total freedom in August 1965, turning this into a falsehood by LRH that he completed his research into total freedom in August 1965.

Further evidence of this falsehood is LRH's own condition at the time of his death.

Furthermore, in the following tape LRH says he has not researched the OT levels:

Now along with all of that, of course, before I left Las Palmas I had news that John McMaster had flown back from Los Angeles and had been checked out Clear. Now I knew indeed that the technical bridge was in all the way through to Clear.

Ahead of that, largely unexplored and not vital in its technology to the lower echelons, is of course Operating Thetan. This area is relatively unknown and just exactly what the total potentials of an Operating Thetan are have not been explored but I can say this, that everything that I try to say that an Operating Thetan can do as the total limit of his ability and so forth, reads as an invalidation on my e-meter.

The conclusion:

Falsehood by LRH that he had the full answers to total freedom by August 1965.

22 Feb
  SECED 22 February 1966 Project Psychiatry

Project Psychiatry arises by the psychiatric attack on us in the US, in Australia and now England.

There is a conspiracy here we have gotten across the path of. Any person in the world can be "pronounced insane", killed or assaulted and made incompetent at the whim of any psychiatrist. Further they pretend they can suspend civil rights!

Hitler invented the pre-frontal lobotomy to make farm zombies. LSD25 as a drug administered to a person makes him temporarily insane. The Russians abandoned all this realizing these "treatments" were Fascist, were begun by the Czar's secret police and have yet to cure anyone of anything except life.

A psychiatrist today has the power to (1) take a fancy to a woman (2) lead her to take wild treatment as a joke (3) drug or shock her to temporary insanity (4) incarcerate her (5) use her sexually (6) sterilize her to prevent conception (7) kill her by a brain operation to prevent disclosure. And all with no fear of reprisal. Yet it is rape and murder.

If these violations of human liberty aren't checked we will soon see "thought police" and an end of individual rights.

I find the material available in individual psychiatrists enormous. We do not care about their conspiracy to rule the world even if it exists. They are no stronger than their individual practitioners and they are weak.

We want at least one bad mark on every psychiatrist in England, a murder, an assault, or a rape or more than one. This is Project Psychiatry. We will remove them.

L. Ron Hubbard

  HCOPL of 25 February 1966 Attacks On Scientology

NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology. ONLY agree to an investigation of the attackers.

This is correct procedure:

(1) Spot who is attacking us.

(2) Start investigating them promptly for FELONIES or worse using our own professionals

(3) Double curve our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them.

(4) Start feeding lurid, blood, sex, crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press.

Don't ever tamely submit to an investigation of us. Make it rough, rough on attackers all the way.

Never talk about us - only them. Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines. There has never been an attacker who was not reeking with crime.

L. Ron Hubbard

  In March, Hubbard published "What Is Greatness?" which rounded off his statements of February: "The hardest task one can have is to continue to love one's fellows despite all reasons he should not .... A primary trap is to succumb to invitations to hate. There are those who appoint one their executioners. Sometimes for the sake of the safety of others, it is necessary to act, but it is not necessary also to hate them."

  John McMaster became the ambassador of Scientology. He was Hubbard's deliberate choice for the "First Clear." McMaster is slight with naturally white hair, and is a remarkable public speaker with a compelling voice. He was Scientology's spokesman in television interviews throughout the English-speaking world, a personification, so it seemed, of gentleness and love. While his message was being beamed over the airwaves, and delivered personally to packed audiences the world over, the Scientology Organizations were becoming increasingly less gentle and loving in their treatment of both their members and their critics.

The Guardian is the most senior executive of Scientology just below Executive Director.


Both planetary and organizational intelligence is handled by this activity.

Intelligence is defined as information leading to predictions of occurrences and useful in forecasting events and so assisting planning and in handling matters arising from events.


The First Guardian is Mary Sue Hubbard.

L. Ron Hubbard

01 Mar
  On March 1, the short-lived Public Investigations Section became the Guardian's Office (GO). "Noisy investigation," or rumor-mongering, was not their only talent, and the GO became a formidable force. After the false starts of the Department of Official Affairs and the Department of Government Affairs, Hubbard at last had his own private Intelligence Agency.

The new Guardian took orders only from the Executive Director of the Church of Scientology. L. Ron Hubbard was appointing a deputy. He kept the new position in the family: Mary Sue Hubbard was the first Guardian, later becoming the "Controller," a post created between the Executive Director and the Guardian.

Among the duties of the Guardian was the "LRH Heavy Hussars Hat." The Guardian's Office (or "GO") would deal with any "threat of great importance" to Scientology. The tenure of executives in Scientology organizations is usually brief; the Guardian is one of the few exceptions. Jane Kember, Mary Sue's successor, held the position for thirteen years. Mary Sue was her superior, as Controller, throughout that time.

The Guardian's Office was responsible for responding to any attack on Scientology. An "attack" might simply be a quizzical newspaper article. The GO is well remembered in London, where the press is still reticent about Scientology stories. The "Legal Bureau" of the GO issued hundreds of court writs, itself losing count. 2 The GO dealt with public relations, legal actions, and the gathering of "intelligence." It conducted campaigns against psychiatry, Interpol, the Internal Revenue Service, drug abuse, and government secrecy, largely under the heading "Social Coordination," or "SOCO."

The headquarters of the Guardian's Office were at Saint Hill in England. This was GO World
Wide, or GOWW.

The GO had Continental offices in each, run by a Deputy Guardian. These in turn had deputies in every Scientology Org, called Assistant Guardians. The Guardian's Office had six Bureaus: Legal, Public Relations, Information (initially called Intelligence), Social Coordination, Service (for GO staff training and auditing), and Finance.

The Guardian's Office was administratively autonomous, taking orders only from Hubbard or from the Controller, who in turn took orders only from her husband.

The Guardian's Office image within the Church was of an efficient, devoted group which dealt with threats to Scientology. They would counter bad press articles (often by suing for libel), defend against government enquiries, and promote Scientology through its good works. These good works were monitored by the Social Coordination Bureau (SOCO). They included "Narconon," a drug rehabilitation program; the Effective Education Association, Apple and Delphi Schools; and various anti-psychiatry campaigns.

Because Hubbard insisted there was a conspiracy against Scientology, the GO investigated and attacked the "conspirators" tirelessly. By the 1970s, the GO had lined itself up against its "enemies," principally the entire psychiatric profession and civil governments. They produced a newsletter called "Freedom," reminiscent of Fascist and Communist propaganda in its overblown language.

Most Church members knew little or nothing about Branch One of the GO, Bureau of Information, commonly referred to as "B-1." They gathered information about Hubbard's "enemies." The Information Bureau's Collections Department had two sections: Overt and Covert data collection. B-1 also housed an Operations section, which should more properly have been called the Dirty Tricks Department.

B-1 was so self-contained that only the top executives in the other Guardian's Office Bureaus were privy to their activities. B-1 was Hubbard's private CIA, keeping tab on friend and foe alike. They also maintained comprehensive files on all Scientologists, compiled from the supposedly confidential records of confessional sessions. At times Hubbard maintained daily, and even hourly, contact with B-1, sending and receiving double-coded telex messages.

The Guardian's Office was the most powerful group within the Church. Following Hubbard's rigid Policy, they could not believe in defense: "The DEFENSE of anything is UNTENABLE. The only way to defend anything is to ATTACK." The GO attacked ruthlessly and relentlessly.

  LRH establishes the Guardian's Office (G.O.). He appoints Mary Sue Hubbard as Guardian. Between 1966 and 1981, MSH and the G.O. exercised total control over all Church assets, bank accounts, property, copyrights and trademarks.

One of the key policies applied by the G.O. is "Fair Game". It states that an enemy of Scientology may be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued, or lied to or destroyed.


It was the Guardian's Office, especially the intelligence section, that applied Fair Game Policy to enemies of the church. In that the Fair Game Policy AUTHORIZES criminal activity - the intelligence unit commits crimes and is that section of the church which is guilty of criminal behavior.

In 1981, the Guardian's Office was disbanded and replaced by the Office of Special Affairs, under the direction of the Religious Technology Center (RTC). This was only a change in name and the same functions of the Guardian Office were continued, including criminal acts by the church intelligence unit as it continued to apply the Fair Game Policy against enemies of the church.

  John McMaster passes an e-meter check for Clear. It's with greatest joy and happiness, the Qualifications Secretary advises Hubbard, I have to report to you that John McMaster has passed the Clear check and no doubt exists that he has erased his bank completely... . Thank you for the honor and privilege of checking out the first Clear.

  For the first time I can execute my orders as Trustee and transfer the UK and Commonwealth properties off the back of the US HASI.

Every company of Scientology abroad is being turned over to C of S of Calif. by HASI, Inc. Arizona. This means HASI Ltd, HCO Ltd, and any and all inactive companies as well.

I remain the US agent to effect the transfer and a HASI board minute of Feb. 20, 1966, directs all staffs and officers to assist me in making the transfer to C of S of California everywhere in the UK and Commonwealth.

I am of course a board member of C of S of Calif. and remain as Executive Director of the orgs. Saint Hill, which was mine, is being sold to C of S of California, the other orgs are simply being given.

I receive no salary for my work and have no service contract with any organization. But I am consigning to C of S of California exclusive use of my name in connection with Scientology.

  The CIA headquarters in the United States receives a cable from an agent in Rhodesia: Request traces of L. Ron Hubbard, US citizen recently arrived. The reply confirms that Headquarters files contain no derogatory information about the subject, but a memo is attached giving excerpts from press reports. It concludes: Individuals who have been connected with the organizations headed by Hubbard or who have had contact with him and the organizations, have indicated that Hubbard is a 'crackpot' and of 'doubtful mental background'.

LRH has/buys a large four-bedroom house with a swimming-pool in the exclusive Alexander Park suburb of Salisbury in Rhodesia, and has opened negotiations to acquire the Bumi Hills Hotel on Lake Kariba. His plan, purportedly, is to use the hotel as a luxury base from which to spread the influence of Scientology.

  LRH Tape of 6 May 1966 Talk To The Saint Hill Staff & The Staff of WW

From Salisbury, Rhodesia. This is Ron:

Now along with all of that, of course, before I left Las Palmas I had news that John McMaster had flown back from Los Angeles and had been checked out Clear. Now I knew indeed that the technical bridge was in all the way through to Clear.

Ahead of that, largely unexplored and not vital in its technology to the lower echelons, is of course Operating Thetan. This area is relatively unknown and just exactly what the total potentials of an Operating Thetan are have not been explored but I can say this, that everything that I try to say that an Operating Thetan can do as the total limit of his ability and so forth, reads as an invalidation on my e-meter.

Now there is also an economic situation which is very bad. Not only is there what's left of civilization being shotgunned from the communist areas but also it is being mowed down from the world bank areas. In other words, the trick here is to make a country as insolvent as possible so that it will borrow as much money as possible and therefore that country can be made to pay back such vast interest rates and such huge sums of money through overtaxation of its population that somebody gets rich some place else.

Now this theory of how you depress the providency of a government in order then to tax and more or less own the country as a whole is probably the reason back of the African new black states, the present semi-confusion and dissolution of the government of England which owes the World Bank 900,000,000 (pounds) and it will owe it more and more and more and you'll notice that whole budget was paying back that World Bank, paying back that World Bank. Well, of course, they'll never pay back the World Bank and the World Bank will end up owning England.

So you have the super-capitalist shooting at civilization, you have the super-communist shooting at civilization and between the two there is some possibility that you might not make it, you might get disrupted on route.

Now if we can get white population, immigrants and big companies and so on moving into Africa and if we can get with that Scientology well established in Southern Africa, why we can then look forward to a salvage operation base, in case the northern hemisphere's lights go out.

All right - there a third avenue and that avenue I will be working on in a very few months and that is the O.T. base proper.

LRH receives a letter from the Department of Immigration informing him that his application for an extension to his Alien's Temporary Residence Permit has been unsuccessful: 'this means that you will be required to leave Rhodesia on or before the 18th July, 1966'.

  18 July 1966 Conference with:

The Guardian, LRH Aide, LRH Communicator, Legal WW, Guardian Communicator and the Head of Intelligence Branch 5 office of LRH

So therefore they did undertake to send (Peter)Younghusband to Rhodesia to get me imprisoned or shot and then if that failed, denied re-entry into the United Kingdom and then vilified and discredited so that the testimony would not count in this suit. And that is a criminal offense and Sir William Carr and Cecil King are, at the very least, accessories if not directors of these crimes.

Now that was the first datum I had on this subject in 1954 - I found out in counting noses that the people who had done the most - twenty-one people - who had done the most to damage Dianetics had criminal records and seventeen of them verified; I just got tired at seventeen and said this is too many.

That in view of the fact that they have criminal backgrounds or in view of the fact that investigation will reveal this, our investigation should therefore go forward to the discovery of crime. Then we should act on the crime... and then when it is acted upon - then we sue.

This is about as malicious and vicious perhaps as one could get but then you are suing a discredited source and this would become hallmarked after awhile. They'd say "the Scientologists must have done that because first he was jailed and then he was sued".

And that is the policy.

31 Jul
  Late July 1966

The U.S. Internal Revenue Service was less interested in Hubbard's spiritual motivation than in the mounting evidence of his financial motivation. At the end of July, the IRS notified the Church of Scientology of California that its tax-exempt status was being withdrawn, giving three reasons: Scientology practitioners were making money from the "non-profit" Church; the Church's activities were commercial; and the Church was serving the private interests of L. Ron Hubbard.

  End 1966

Having failed to secure a "safe-point" in Rhodesia from which to resist the encroachments of the Suppressives, Hubbard planned to take to the High Seas.

Having given his last Saint Hill Briefing Course lecture, Hubbard left for North Africa at the end of 1966. On December 5, British Health Minister Kenneth Robinson denied that an Inquiry was necessary, but denounced Scientology as "potentially harmful," adding "I have no doubt that Scientology is totally valueless in promoting health."

  Late 1966

Hubbard had spent the last weeks of 1966 "researching" OT3 in North Africa. In a letter of the time, he admitted that he was taking drugs ("pinks and grays") to assist his research.

Note: From LRH's personal archives:

Also included were Hubbard's letters to Mary Sue Hubbard over the years, where he said exactly what he was doing while researching the "Technology" of Scientology. For example, there are letters sent from North Africa in late 1966, to Mary Sue at Saint Hill, which give details of the drugs Hubbard was taking to "research" the most secret of Scientology's levels, OT3.
