Suppressive Groups





L. Ron Hubbard originally defined the concept of Suppressive Groups in a Policy Letter dated 29 June 1968 (Enrollment in Suppressive Groups).

He stated “SUPPRESSIVE GROUPS, are defined as those which seek to destroy Scientology or which specialize in injuring or killing persons or damaging their cases or which advocate the suppression of mankind”.

However, in actual practice, the Church of Scientology (and Hubbard himself for that matter), has branded as Suppressives anyone who started a splinter or divergent group.




By actual record, the Church of Scientology declares as Suppressive:

1- Any splinter group, whatever were their motives or activities.

2- Any whistleblower or group denouncing illegal acts performed or ordered by the Church of Scientology or any of its principals.

3- Anyone refusing to comply with orders issued by the Church Elite, no matter how much these may contravene approved policy or the published aims of Scientology.

4- Anyone found to be applying Scientology, or a derivative of it without the official approval or without the paying of tithes to the Church of Scientology. Contrarily to any mainstream Church, unqualified and untrained people will make the assessment of such activities and uniformly find them to be bad and harmful without any real investigation or competence to do so..

5- Any organization whose principals are known by the Church of Scientology to be former members and that teaches anything of a mental, Spiritual or Religious nature, even when it has no real connection with Scientology nor seeks to compete with it.

6- Any group or Association that has copied ideas found in Scientology or L. Ron Hubbard writings and seek to apply them, without the official approval of the Church of Scientology and the payment of large amounts of royalties. This especially applies to any new Churches created in accordance with the laws of the land.

7- Any group of  individuals that seeks to challenge the activities of the Church of Scientology or its leaders, even when invoking the writings of L. Ron Hubbard and the original materials written by Hubbard in the 1950s, which the current Church of Scientology is very fond of calling scriptures.

A exhaustive and impartial analysis of top 50 splinter or dissenting group from the Church of Scientology reveals the following facts:




1- Each and every Splinter/Divergent group purported and sought to promote the ideas contained in Scientology and consistent with its philosophy. This includes the entirety of what is labeled as “FREEZONE” or Independent Field. Therefore far from suppressing Scientology, they uniformly tried to promote it. FACT: Splinter/Divergent Groups do not seek to suppress Scientology.

2- People who have claimed that a splinter Group or FREEZONE/Independent caused someone’s actual injury or Death are very few in number (less than 3%) and every instance dates from the 1990s or the 21st Century as a small clique of particularly unethical, poorly trained and ignorant individuals started to rule or influence the key factions of the Freezone/Independent Field . The majority of the assertions of actual harm or death in the Freezone/Independent Field are anonymously made and easily traceable to the Church of Scientology or its agents. Since the Church of Scientology is among the most DEAD-AGENTED organization on the planet (except in the blind eyes of its fanatical promoters and OSA agents/collaborators), the validity of those claims is very easy to dispute.

On the other hand, the number of people documented with claims that the Church of Scientology has caused injury or contributed directly to the death of people is in the high Hundreds, or perhaps in the thousands. All one has to do is use the Internet Search Engine or visit the detailed files contained thousands of different accounts, testimonies and News media stories in the Internet web sites that are dedicated to the denunciation of abuses by the Church of Scientology.


A statistical analysis and study of OTs remaining faithful to the Church reveal a truly scary trend: Life expectancy for them is a mere 57 years of age: that is 20 to 25 years below the national average for all but the poorest and under-developped countries on Earth. Active membership and participation in the Church of Scientology current activities ought to be labeled: “the 1001th way to die“.

Therefore, even giving reports exclusively written for the benefit of the Church of Scientology credibility, the ratio of people allegedly injured or killed by the Church of Scientology outnumbers the Splinter Groups/Freezone/Independents by over 300 to 1.

FACT: None of the Splinter/Divergent Groups has ever specialized in injuring or Killing persons.

3- As far as advocating the Suppression of Mankind, there is no evidence that any of the 500 groups listed on any list of Splinter or Divergent groups has ever advocated or encouraged such acts. On the other hand, the Church of Scientology has regularily promoted ideas described in the “ten stages of genocide” and frequently advocated that people be deprived or liberty or their Human rights should they happen to be blacklisted for whatever reason.

FACT: None of the Splinter/Divergent Groups has ever advocated the Suppression of Mankind.


4- While the results achieved by Splinter groups and Freezone factions tend to vary according to ideas and quality in their application, only a small handful of Independent practitioners (less than 5% – none of them being member of an organized group) has shown that they may be possibly labeled as “harmful”. Even that claim is in dispute.

The matter of damaging people’s cases is largely a subjective one.

What of the auditor who falsely validates the hallucinatory claims of a pc to please him/her? Is he truly damaging the case of the person?

What of the auditor who validates the pc who is convinced that he audits remotely and telepathically the world leaders, including President Obama?

Or how about the one who believes he/she gets daily instructions from the spiritual plane where LRH gives them daily advice on where to purchase anything from picnic foam plates to a large Plasma TV?

What of people attesting to OT8, OT48 or even  OT 1008?

Most of these people claim to be happy, though many of their peers tend to view them as delusional.

For each person pointing them up as “damaged cases”, there will be those who promote them as exemplary cases.

Merely making people happy with their state of case is a questionable criteria. A number of cases, by actual record, incompetently audited people can turn on some form of Psychosis and Deep Hatred after having been audited as a victim, when they were actually a chronic aggressor and abuser of the rights of others. If one was to audit an “Hitler type” personality, the latter may enjoy his newly gained abilities as a wonderful tool for more effectively committing genocide or  spread his hatred against those he feel should be destroyed.


Lastly, of supreme, but often neglected importance is whether the person’s case was already damaged by the Church of Scientology or its predecessors in the field of Mental and Spiritual practices.

In the vast majority of cases, it is simply impossible to ascertain. The Church of Scientology, typically blames its failed cases on Psychiatry and often invents newly discovered psychiatry related links to rationalize even the most justified of attacks on them.

Every case that has openly testified against a Freezone or Independent auditor for being abused, misaudited or otherwise mishandled, had done the exact same thing toward the Church of Scientology a number of years earlier.

Policies on Sources of Troubles written by L. Ron Hubbard describes responsible-for-condition cases as those insisting things such as some auditor or thing being “wholly responsible for the terrible condition I am in.” the same policy states that a “review of these cases show that they were in the same or worse condition long before auditing… and that their antagonism extends to anyone who seeks to help them”.

FACT: None of the Splinter/Divergent Groups has ever specialized in Damaging Cases. Damaged cases are nearly always attributable to many causes and the evidence supports that the Church of Scientology does far more toward Damaging people’s cases than any Splinter/Divergent group ever has.


The correct method of determining if someone’s case has been harmed by a practice is to confine oneself to the actions of the person (something that can be impartially examined) rather than the person feelings, beliefs or alleged character (something largely subjective)

The following questions should be examined and answered based on honest and thorough examination, while brushing away any and all bias and rumors:

1- Is the individual, according to the world at large, as opposed  to groups he/she is associated with (due to the likelihood of mutual out-rudiments) becoming a better person? By better person is meant someone who help others and who behave in accordance to a Moral Code such as the one written in the Way to Happiness. Because delusional or unethical individuals tend to PR themselves an actual thorough and independent examination of their activities is required.

2- Is the person more successful along their dynamics? (especially the first three)

3- What is the level of Communication of the person? Is it highly destructive toward selected individuals or are they focusing on constructive activities

4- Is the person a PR artist?

5- Are the friends or associates of the individual people of Good-Will, (even if they may have made mistakes), or people actually involved in, actually PR artists and/or con men due to their destructive activities? Who are their friends? Who are their enemies?

6- Are they hypocritically posing as “Free Independent” while covertly acting as Informant for the Church of Scientology (the one organization who has publicly vowed at trying to destroy all Independent Scientologist and practitioners). Are their enemies the same as the Church of Scientology?




Logic, in spite of the existence of the Data Series, is something largely unknown to Scientologists. The data Series written by L. Ron Hubbard were meant to complement the fundamentals of LOGIC. But most Scientologist (both within the Church and without) view it as a replacement, therefore they tend to act in a completely illogical manner.

Normal and ethical people often state that “The Enemy of my Enemy is my Friend”.

Many people who have been indoctrinated by some of the false ideas taught within the Church of Scientology tend to stick to those false ideas long after they have left or even publicly disavowed any beliefs in that organization or even its philosophy and original ideas.

It is a typically action by the same kind of people to willy-nilly provide assistance to the Church of Scientology when it seeks to malign its enemies, by providing all manner of Black PR and lies against their common enemies.

In most cases, the providing of Black PR against their perceived or imaginary enemies, in forums carefully chosen because OSA and Church agents are known to frequent them is meticulously calculated to harm its target by teh typical weapons of choice of the coward: Lies, Blackmail and defamation.

The result, uncomforted by those who have a low ability to confront Evil or Reality, is that the individuals publicly attacking the Church of Scientology Enemies by using defamation, Blackmail and lies, have become de facto collaborators of the Church of Scientology and are treated as informants and reliable sources by that organization.

The net result is to weaken the target of their hatred (often an individual with limited resources or time to defend himself) and  strengthen the Church of Scientology (an organization documented to allocate unlimited resources toward the suppression of its enemies).

The only possible conclusion is that the individuals claiming to be enemies of the Church, yet actively aid the Church in its attacks of its enemies are either incredibly stupid, hypocritical or an unholy mixture of both.

Many of the EX-Scientologist boards starting with their owners and moderators act that way. The same goes with a number of Freezone/Independent Boards, in particular those controlled by the self appointed Freezone PRs, who know very well their board is infested by OSA agents and operatives, though they profess otherwise.

The only reason a board like ESMB has been allowed to continue to exist, in spite of it numerous violations of the law, and the vast resources and connections of the Church of Scientology (and its ability to get it shut it down any day it chooses to), is that it is viewed by OSA as an invaluable tool to malign its enemies and the eagerness of those who portray themselves as Victims of Scientology to do its own dirty work. And they do it for free!

Such Church allies can be created by incompetent or reckless Freezone/Independent auditors when they bypass the case of their pc and allow them to remain stuck in earlier bad and/or traumatic experiences at the hands of the Church of Scientology, yet attempt to audit them on Upper Levels or Rundowns. The resulting Blind fury or Hatred is typically targeted at anyone who may point out, especially correctly, the technical shortcomings of their auditor (the one largely responsible for restimulating the person).


SOED Flag ED 2830RB published on the 25 July 1992 is the last list of Suppressives published by the Church of Scientology. It proved to be such an embarrassment when it was leaked on the Internet, that the Church amended its policy of updating it and has since kept its ever-growing list of Declared Suppressive Persons, a secret.

All one has to do is look at the historical records of the history and development of Scientology or the names of LRH former close associates and confidantes to recognize a veritable “Who is Who” of the History of Scientology in that issue alone.

The Church of Scientology use blind zealots, fanatics and extremists such as those dedicating themselves at making Hatred web pages on imaginary enemies of the Church of Scientology, those stalking defectors to harass them and those who believe that spying on people of good-will to satisfy the pernicious agenda of OSA. The common denominator of all these people is a deep fear of the light of Truth and the exposing of their own crimes, lies and atrocities. That terror dominates their should so much that they become unable to recognize as an OUTPOINT (or illogic) the simple fact that anyone who sees 90% of one their former associates or comrades has all the attributes Paranoia. Paranoia is a condition largely created by having committed earlier a large number of harmful acts.

To summarize:

Labelling Splinter or Divergent Groups as Suppressive is based on lies and used as an expedient to rationalize the blatant disregard by the Church of Scientology for people rights to practice their own religion as they see fit or express their opinion.

True Suppressive Groups obviously do exist: The Nazis, Organized Crime, Al-Qaeda are a few of them, but they are never listed by the Church of Scientology in the lists of Enemies of Mankind, while their own defectors always are.

Declaring Splinter or Divergent groups as Suppressives is an entirely political tool whose main aim is to stamp out competition. Further it attempts to  maintain what is advertised as “the only road to Spiritual Freedom” and Spiritual redemption for Man as a Monopoly in the hands of a self-appointed Elite. That latter point is Ethically as reprehensible as can be, since its only possible result should it come to fruition is the Enslavement of Mankind.

Observation of the actual actions done by that Elite clearly indicates that the personal Aims of the Individuals that control that Elite have nothing to do with the purported Aims of Scientology nor its published Credo. On the contrary the aims of the Elite have mainly to do with the accumulation of wealth in the most expedient possible way (typically through the secret use of Slave labour, Sweat Shops and Intimidation) and in satisfying an insatiable thirst for Power over the souls that the Church of Scientology still controls.

The way to minimize the formation of Splinter Group is for the organization to remain open to the fruits of observation and to suggestions and to acknowledge people. Most Splinter Groups were created as a result of an unhandled upset or ARCX (Disagreement, Injustice, Invalidation). By keeping quality controls high and verifying that the proper standards and protocols are adhered to, results automatically follow and the demand for switching to wild unproven ideas will remain to a minimum. To utterly prevent the formation of Splinter or Divergent groups is simply impossible without adopting totalitarian measures and keeping a thought a police active.

If one is to be in the business of helping people achieve higher levels of self-determinism, one need to accept that fact. The Church of Scientology has become akin to a 1984 type Orwellian nightmare because it refused to understand that simple principle.

OTVIII and Beyond

LRH Legacy

 OT VIII and beyond what lies ahead of us???

While all evidence points to the fact that no new OT Level will be released by the Church in our lifetimes, for those lucky enough to have “strayed” away from the yoke of that Institution, the bridge needs not dead-end at OT VIII.

Throughout the years, there have been many speculations as to what OT VIII and beyond were about. A number of uninformed individual even started to broadcast, quite erroneously that LRH had never even researched or written those. The same people are also content to tell that the world that the “last technical lecture from LRH dates from 1972”, utterly oblivious of the fact that in late 1975, LRH gave a series of 22 lectures on the Flag Only “Special Rundown” (later to be called “New Vitality Rundown” or NVRD, to a group of over 40 Tech People.

In 1977, in broadly released issues LRH announced that at least 15 new Levels were fully researched and merely awaiting final write-up. Also the Class X, XI and XII materials make repeated and specific references to these Rundowns coming from “research on OT VIII-XV”.

I have also confirmed from private discussions with a number of individuals, some of which I have known for decades, and whom I consider to be honest and reliable that they even saw the materials themselves.


There is no such thing as OLD and NEW OT Levels, except within RTC‘s feverish mind (and therefore those of its followers). Except for “old OT I” (originally developed in 1966 and found in 1967 by LRH to be a dead-end), there has not been, since 1967 any “OLD OT Levels”.

Its core issues written up in 1969, LRH found OT VIII to be “only for a High level Thetan“, and the gradient simply too steep for most people, even a Full OT 7 completion. It took nearly a decade for tech to be developed to address those points.

How Debbie Cook’s letter resonated with Scientologists

Here is another work of protest and rebellion that is destined to join the list of  classics.  This declaration of independence comes from a French OT 8, celebrity and an artist.  Please see that his work was not done in vain; disseminate it as far and wide as you possibly can. ( Link to Debbie Cook’s Letter:

V M – OT VIII, Class 5 Auditor, gave $25,000 to the IAS, France

From: VM

Monday, March 12, 2012 6:31 PM

Subject: Doubt Formula


I am an artist.  I am a painter and a sculptor.  I am a public of Celebrity Center Paris, New OT 8 and auditor Class V.

The reason why I am writing you this letter is that I am doing a Doubt Condition.

I became a Scientologist 28 years ago, in 1984.  After a period of being on staff as ED at the mission of Paris, I pursued my road as public in 1987.  At the end of the same year, I was Clear and auditor CL IV.

I then left to Flag to go up my Bridge.  Six months later in July 1988, I returned home on OT 7.  I was 24 years old.  I always paid for my Bridge by my own means.

In January 1989, I started a field group auditor in Geneva.

In February 6, 1989, I attested to OT 7 and in February 27, I attested to OT 8.

In 1999, I left for Flag to do my certainties.   I was returned to OT 7 and audited until April 2004 when I attested to OT 7 for the second time.  I attested to OT 8 soon after.

In July 2004, I attended the Maiden voyage where COB announced as priority number one the purchase of the “ideals orgs”.

In 2006, I bought an industrial fallow of 10,000 square meters in Bourgogne to build a village for artists and a theater.  I was immediately the target of all the regional SPs that did not miss to make the amalgam between my project and Scientology and to attack violently both as an inseparable block.

For these last 6 years, I spent most of my time defending the Church, handling hundreds of persons one by one to make them allies, to deny the enemy lines on the Church, to visit all the personalities, influential people and the VIPS to clean the subject of Scientology.  I then obtained extraordinary products.

As many of us, on January 1, I received and read Debbie Cook’s email.  Debbie raised points on which I had some attention on for several years.  After having asked for the opinion of some friends, I turned to lines suited to handle these questions: HCO CCP (Celebrity Center Paris).

I wanted to obtain simple clarifications but the denial, which HCO made me read to handle this email generated many more questions.

During my second meeting with HCO, the DSA of Paris Org and a terminal from the Freewinds, the Ethics Officer of Celebrity Center Paris made me read a new pack of “Dead Agent” relating to “the lies of a squirrel group” called “Friends of LRH” ( ).  I did not understand why this group was being cataloged as squirrel liar while they raised only a long list of out tech by indicating exactly the violated references!!!  It seems to me that a squirrel is someone who alters the Tech and not the one who spreads efforts to maintain its standard?

I thus read this list with interest (in HCO).  I was stunned to notice the difficulty of the Church to prove that this out tech does not exist.  The majority of the answers were out of context.  It started to be very disturbing.

My reasoning was the following one: if all these major technical changes made by COB as time goes by and if all these new strategies of continual fund raising, ideal orgs and others were the right things to do, it should be seen directly in the statistics in terms of expansion.  Then I took as stable datum these two references from Ron:

“The most direct observation in an Org (or a country) is statistics.

These tell of production.  They measure what is done.

It cannot be said too often that management is best done by statistics.

Each division in an Org has a GROSS DIVISIONAL STATISTIC.  This is calculated to reflect the production of that division by all its staff members.”

Statistics, Management By, HCO PL 5 Feb 1970 (Management Series, Vol. 7, p. 514)

“Orgs have only 2 major final valuable products. One is well-trained auditors. The other is satisfied Pcs.”

Tech and Admin policy exist only to assist making these two products IN VOLUME.”

LRH ED 131 INT, Re: Life Repair Block, 8 Dec 1970 (OEC Vol. 4, p. 145)

I made the decision to examine these two statistics honestly and only these two because they are both major valuable final products of an Org (VFP).  I voluntarily pushed aside all the new statistics about which Ron has never spoken or “future statistics” which, by definition, have nothing to do with standard statistics which has to measure a realized production and not a future production.

I began by examining a statistic of the Clear attests at Flag, compiled from the lists of completion in Source Magazine.  It gives a screaming Affluence until 1989 followed by Danger until 2001 and Emergency until 2008.  Other statistics of Auditing and Training were appreciably identical.  I have not found the next years yet.

To make sure of the validity of this source, I personally verified some of the Source Magazines of this site with the real copy.  They were perfectly identical.  I could have decided to not-is all of this but I decided to look honestly by creating graphs in a standard way of all these statistics and to read the condition without trying to justify anything.  I could only notice that we were very far from the “unprecedented expansion” announced by COB.

I asked Celebrity Center Paris to show me these two statistics.  I would have never thought that it would be so difficult to obtain these two statistics, which are supposed to be both major VFPs of the Org.  Statistics that were presented to me were not standard.  It gave an approximate figure in 1985 and another approximate figure in 2011 !!!  Or it shows two columns, a small and a large one without indication of quantities and period of time.  The kind of non-standard statistics shown in events, which is exactly one of my disagreements.  The only statistic that had an approximately correct graphic was the refunds one.  Regrettably, this one did not interest me.

Two statistics of the Freewinds over the last 20 years were shown to me.  The statistic of the PDC showed a tendency of normal to Emergency until 2008 and an increase over the last 4 years corresponding probably to the delivery of the Basics.  Nevertheless, this one did not interest me either.

The statistic of Well Done Auditing Hours showed an “Affluence” until 1989 I believe, followed by “Danger” and then an “Emergency” until today (a slight decrease of the graph).  The main statistic of the Freewinds that I could not see was the number of completions of OT 8s since 1988.  Fabienne Bello, supervisor of the Freewinds told me: “It represents too much work, we have other things to do”.  I was not able to see on all the observed statistics “the unprecedented expansion” announced by COB.

What I see at best is an Emergency and at worst a Danger.  “Economize” is one of the Emergency condition step.  So, what do we do instead?  We spend gargantuan sums in buildings, which, not only slow down the progress of the donors on the Bridge but also succeed to weigh down considerably the Orgs FP no. 1 in running costs.  This is not ethical.

I have also personally observed from 1984 to 1990 that there were crowds of PCs and auditors in front of HGCs at Flag, Copenhagen, Paris Org, Celebrity Center Paris as well as Academies full of co-auditing, hubbub, auditors in training.  There was a kind of boiling, a glow, and a great up tone ambiance of production of free people.  People pushed on the Bridge, exactly as Ron asked us to do it.  Those who knew Scientology in this time will confirm it.

Today, I don’t see anybody in front of my Org’s HGC and the Academy resembles more like a local library than a place where we learn to produce Clears.

Like many, I loved studying the Basics, as I had also liked reading them when I arrived in Scientology in 1984.  Having wins reading these books is indisputable.  But, is it really what we are supposed to do?  If Ron had decided that these long studies should be a prerequisite to go up the Bridge, he would have put it on the Grade Chart or he would have written it.  However, he did not and it is in no way what he says about it (see ref. below).

LRH ED 299 INT The End of Endless Training (OEC Vol. 4, p. 419)

Let us go back on the observation of the statistics.

The 10,015 Orgs, Missions and Affiliated Groups announced by COB in the last Mag KSW News and in the last event seem to be a pure lie because it is obviously impossible to verify, even 8 % of this figure.  A new Org, Mission or Group is something so important!  I cannot imagine that Management is not making sure that each one of them can be found with their address on the Church Web Site.

For example, I cannot imagine the announcement of 100 new Orgs in Paris without saying where they are and how we can contact them!!!  It makes no sense.  The number that I was able to obtain from various publications (green volumes, WIS, Church Web sites, SMI and Internet gives me an optimistic number of 160 Orgs, 600 Missions and 400 Affiliated Groups.  I found no trace of the remaining 8,855.

Always in these same sources, the number of new Orgs opened gives me 22 in the 1970s, 72 in the 1980s, 8 in the 1990s, 1 in the 2000s.  The official site of the Church announces a long list of “new Orgs”.  They are not “new Orgs” but new buildings, which is very different.  The real statistic for the new Orgs is in a condition of Non-Existence.

The Church publicly announced 12 million scientologists in the world while the IAS lists approximately 100,000 members (including those who left).  Does it mean that 11 million and 900 thousand Scientologists just forgot to take their card?  The American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) announces, according to their official studies in the United States, 55,000 Scientologists in 1990, 45,000 in 2001 and approximately 25,000 in 2008. Based on the Institute’ statistics, it is another condition of Danger for the Church of Scientology.

I also noticed that, except for the old Scientologist’s children, I did not see new heads in my Academy since a very very long time.  This does not align with “an unprecedented expansion”.  To think that my Org is an exception is simply false.  A discreet questioning of my entourage and distant acquaintances leads me to the conclusion that it is similar for 99% of the Orgs, including “ideal orgs” which suffer from the lack of public, staff and production.  Two OTs recently took the time to go and visit European “ideal orgs” in order to see it for themselves.  What they saw is overwhelming even though they left with the firm intention to prove the opposite.

The only statistics probably in power are the number of square feet of buildings bought and the quantity of ultra luxurious renovations done.  Frankly, we absolutely do not care about “real estate speculator” statistics while the statistics of released public or the statistics of auditors is lower than ever!!!! It is revolting!!!

To make us believe continuously in an “Unprecedented Expansion” of Scientology is a propaganda lie.  Ron forbids the use of lies in PR.

Further to the observation of real statistics, I note that we are in a low condition.  Here is the reason given by LRH:

“A study reveals that Orgs fade and stumble simply and only because vital actions are dropped out or harmful arbitraries are introduced.”

HCO PL 29 Dec 1971RB REV 4 Sept 1990

Flag Representative, Purpose Of

(OEC Vol. 7, p. 1407)

Below is a non-exhaustive list of the major changes that I was able to observe:

Blocking public from moving up the Bridge and not releasing Superpower since 30 years although Ron promised Super Power in early 1979.

“Super Power will be delivered at Saint Hills within the next 6 weeks….”

LRH, Ron’s Journal 30, 17 December 1978

Golden Age of Tech with longer and more difficult checksheets.

Added prerequisite courses to auditor training lengthening the time it takes to produce auditors and OTs.

New interpretation of F/Ns multiplying by four the length of sec checks, causing overruns, upsets and sickness.  I have been through this technical change when I was on solo NOTs and I have seen the effects.

Mandatory and expanded use of sec checks on up stat pre-OTs even though they are doing well.

Mixing the rundowns and auditing NED on OTs.

Invalidation of Ron from COB constantly correcting “his errors”, invalidation of auditing wins and training done before Golden Age of Tech.

Pressure and unprecedented over-regging without exchange of service.

Reduction of the concept of the Ideal Org in terms of expensive MEST and excessive luxuries and not in terms of services and production realized.

Events filled with lies and with false statistics.

False promises to the staff concerning Saint Hill size and the Universe Corp.

Etc, etc, etc.

DSA France asked me this question, “when did these disagreements begin exactly?”  I thought about it and I found exactly the beginning.  It is not Debbie’s letter.

It started in 1989 while I had just attested OT 8 and was in Saint Etienne’s Org.  The PE told me that COB had just subjected the delivery of OT 9 and 10 on condition that every Classy IV Org reaches the size of old Saint Hill!!! While Saint Etienne, Clermont Ferrand and Lyon Orgs combined no more than about ten staff and around thirty public since approximately ten years.  It seemed to me like a pure and simple blackmail and a suppressive target.

Today I see that it was really about Suppressives Acts no. 44 and 45:

“Calculated efforts to disrupt Church services or the flow of public up the Bridge through the Churches.”

“Refusal to allow staff or public to progress up the Bridge or creating blocks on the Bridge preventing such progression.”

A few years later, COB even added to the list of the prerequisites for OT 9 and 10 to be auditor V Graduate and FPRD!!!  It is in my opinion, another way of saying “I shall personally make sure that nobody will have access to the upper levels of the Bridge before at least thirty years.”  Moreover, everybody agreed with that (or rather was forced to agree with that).  At this time, I wrote a letter to Guillaume Lesèvre to ask him if this new strategy leaned on directives of Ron or not.  I do not remember the exact terms, but his answer was “no, it’s a decision of the management.”

The Bridge that Ron left us was ready to be used.  26 years after his death, a single level of OT was released (considering that OT 8 is the first real level of OT).  There are still several OT levels to be released!!!  I am not certain that he would be very satisfied with this statistic if he came to visit us.  26 years is almost all the time that he needed to develop the totality of the Bridge!!!!  There is something that does not add up.  The justifications like, “we need time to train technical staff,” “we have to setup future dedicated classrooms,” “it is necessary to have so many OT 8s to release OT 9” or “all Class IV Orgs have to be big like that,” makes absolutely no sense for all the OT 8s which have a good reality on this subject.  It is pure arbitraries.

Immediately after I attested to OT 8, I felt sucked up through the top of the Bridge, then terribly deprived, and oppressed by the fact that a single individual closed it arbitrarily since more than 26 years ago.  I am certain that two weeks is amply enough to set up the release of the whole Bridge, and COB aside, nothing prevents us from opening it upward. I also have the absolute certainty that if the Bridge was opened from the beginning, we would have an inconceivable inflow of new persons at the bottom of the Bridge.

An OT 8 attesting to this level is technically and immediately ready for the next upper level.  If there were some reason against it, Ron would have written it.  In addition, if he had written it, we should have the technical knowledge of it.

Why an OT 8 has to “repair” his entire Bridge that was already completed, and why “re-prepare” infinitely and spend again astronomical sums in 10’s of intensives for sec checks that cost 8,000 dollars per intensive???  It is difficult not to envisage an underlying financial motivation.

I protested every implementation of this out tech of COB.  I did not dare to say that it was incorrect except to my auditors and CSs.  I thought about it very hard and then not-ised it hard to avoid having troubles. It is my biggest overt there and I am not proud of it for Ron.

Today, I openly say that IT IS INCORRECT towards KSW no.1.

It is incorrect to justify it as we constantly do.  I refuse to continue to be an accomplice of Miscavige’s overts by applauding his crimes and shouting “he is a genius!”

1,600 OT8s in 26 years is a ridiculously small number since Ron mapped the road and considering the great majority of people want spiritual freedom!!!  Obviously, something actively slows down our expansion. What does Ron say on this subject?  OUT TECH, OFF POLICY.  We would already have without any doubt several tens of thousands of OTs without this out tech.  We would have been delivering the complete Bridge for a long time.  The Bridge would be accessible to all technically and financially including the public, staffs, and the Sea Org.  There would be no regging for other things than services. There would be millions of scientologists (really).  Except for some incorrigible SPs, Scientology would have an extraordinary image because it would bring only the good to all those who would try it.  It would be like that if Ron was still in command.

Personally, money, excessive luxury, pressure, stress, lies and blackmail have never excited me.  Going up the Bridge, helping others to go up the Bridge, creation, ARC, lightness, freedom, respect, wins in auditing and training, Scientology… Yes, yes and yes again.  Regrettably, it seems that we have widely gone away from this ideal scene.  I am worried to notice that old Scientologists who knew the work of Ron in his early stage or the boom of Scientology in the 80s, disappear one by one.  They have been ejected, resigned or declared SP.  What are left are young scientologists who have no point of reference and become “very obedient” scientologists very fast.

I do not know a single person having left the SO and not witnessed the atmosphere of fear, of pressure, financial motivation, oppression and violence which reigns there. We can always not-is this and say that all persons who testify of these horrors became suppressive just like that!  No, a suppressive does not spend 30 years of his/her life to defend and actively expand Scientology successfully as Debbie Cook and many others have.

It is the only reason of the execrable PR from which Scientology is suffering.  Spiritual freedom was never the cause of the problem in spite of what the Church could force us to think. Our own mistakes ARE the cause of this bad PR.  This unprecedented financial pressure pushing the public into financial irregularities, out-ethics and lives of poverty entangled in debt and PTPs is largely the cause of this bad PR.  From an outside viewpoint, a simple look from a non-Scientologist brings the conclusion that we are completely in “la-la land” while we are supposed to be a model to be followed, the example of an ideal society!!!  Being in daily contact with non-Scientologists who look at us from their viewpoint, I know what I say.

The current purposes of the Church (and not those of Ron) do not correspond any more to my own.  I do not wish to belong any more to this group and refuse to continue to give my support.  Scientology interests me.  Squirreling does not interest me.

I join the group of Scientologists who go up the Bridge and help others to go up in a standard way, with ARC and simplicity.  I join the group of people who respect Ron and his work.  The group of people whose intention is to set others free, Clear, OT and obtain good statistics on this subject.

I am opposed to those who alter the Technology, who prevent people to move up the Bridge by making it inaccessible, who falsify the statistics, who lie publicly to hide their low statistics.

I am doing what I think is the most ethical.  I have good hope that COB will be corrected, sec checked and removed from its functions.  I have good hope that a more ethical TEAM takes back the reins and restores Scientology according to the Directives and Ron’s intentions to make the Bridge again a priority and accessible and thus bring people to total freedom.  I shall then be the first one to come back and fight again for this purpose.

You probably wonder why I tell you all this and why it does not stay within the framework of HCO?  The answer is that I went to see HCO.  Nevertheless, the unique purpose of HCO is to (1) ruin by all the means the reputation of all those who do not agree with management and compromise them; (2) prove, in an extremely awkward and deceitful way, with rationalization, justifications and falsified statistics that the observed out tech is not in fact out tech; (3) threaten me with an SP declare if I communicate what I have observed.

I would have really wished that with HCO we could honestly look when something incorrect is done by the Church or look if something goes against Ron’s references, and correct it.  This would make management wrong, thus, it is impossible.  COB has locked out any possibility to correct out tech.

I am sending you this letter because (1) “to announce it publicly to both parties” is one step of the Doubt Condition; (2) the solution to this crisis is not dumbness but communication.  We cannot take responsibility if we act like nothing is happening, which is what HCO and OSA wish.  I cannot believe that they do not really see what is happening.

I will probably receive an SP declaration because of this letter. Well, I do not really mind. In many other countries, they cut the throat of those who dare to oppose the dictator in position.  HCO is now going to work on a ‘Dead agent’ pack aimed at ruining my reputation and to compromise my comments. They are already saying that HCOPL of 15 Nov 1968 “Cancelation of Disconnection” does not exist, and thus I am lying and I am a “bad boy.”  This PL does exist in the 1976 and 1984 editions of OEC Vol. 1, page 489.  This reference has been withdrawn by COB in the following editions.

Recently, a good friend of mine told me about the concept of “using LRH’s references to put people in a state of confusion.”  This looks like more an argument of HCO than his personal viewpoint.  I answered him that it looks largely like a good justification to continue with the out tech actions.  Personally, I do not see how an LRH reference could put someone in a state of confusion!!!! It was not written for this purpose!! There is only one reason why a LRH reference could put someone in a state of confusion, if it shakes a stable datum that does not align with it.  How is it possible that a Scientologist has a stable datum that is contradictory to Ron’s reference???

Imagine yourself catching somebody installing a load of dynamite at the bottom of the boat?  Are you going to shut up and keep it to yourself for fear of creating some confusion?  The first reflex will be to jump him in the throat but if you have no possibility of doing that or four big ogres prevent you from it, you will surely want to communicate it, even at the risk of being thrown overboard for yelling and creating a confusion or disturbance.

This is what is happening and today, it is impossible for me to act as if I had seen nothing.

The solution is to have the courage to say “NO” and TO NOT BE REASONABLE WITH WHAT WE KNOW IS NOT CORRECT.

All what I say here is the result of my personal observation and experience.  I leave to each the care of observing for himself/herself and drawing his or her own conclusions if you haven’t already done so.

Looking at this situation, demands confronting and can bring confusion.  I am very aware of it but it is what happens when we put in some order.  What should we do?  Not-is and persuade ourselves that everything is fine, or take responsibility and oppose what seems to us incorrect in spite of the danger which it contains or the confusion which it can generate?

I chose to rely on LRH and his writings.  I chose to be openly against all that deviates from it.

HCOBs and HCOPLs are fortunately still available “approximately” unaltered before a “new golden age” makes them obsolete.  It is what is going to save us!  It would not be surprising for me if the red and green disappears completely from our auditors training to be replaced by titles like “according to Ron Hubbard’s works” which would widely open the door to an altered tech in direct violation of KSW no.1.

The only Golden Age of Tech that will ever exist is Ron’s when he was in command and when he was setting people free by hundreds.  To declare things otherwise and to invent a new golden age of tech is an insult towards him.

Although HCO will force you to cut the communication with me, be aware that Ron canceled the disconnection policy in 1968 (HCO PL 15 Nov on 1968, Cancellation of Disconnection).  Here is another out tech.  Nevertheless, my friends will always remain my friends.  It does not change anything for me.  I shall console myself when receiving my SP declaration by knowing that 38 of 50 staff of the last Org that Ron led personally (the old Saint Hill) were personally declared SPs by Miscavige and chucked out for ever (see the list below).  The 2.5 % (percentage given in the Ethics book) gives us here 76 % SPs!!!  Thinking that Ron would have seen nothing is another insult towards him.  This SP Declaration does not make any sense anymore.

If we are only a few to oppose this unethical situation, statistics will continue to fall and David Miscavige will grow richer.  On the day there are enough of us with the courage to say “stop” to Miscavige’s dictatorship, Miscavige will withdraw to his yacht (that I saw with my own eyes) or will fly away in his private jet on an island with his billions and his buildings.  I have good hope that Scientology will then be back to normal again and we shall meet.

I am leaving the group of David Miscavige and his perverted management, and I am simply re-joining the group of L. Ron Hubbard. I am not leaving Scientology, but I am declaring my independence from the current Church, and I am taking back my freedom.

See you soon.

Copy Cat Best Practices (Humor)


Thank you letter.

Thank you letter to Michelle Sterling and all ESMBers who became my Copy Cats. I have been frequently copied/pasted in their write ups and monologues when they generate wild rumors which shall not be believed.  All is old news distorted within the lenses of their own fabrications coupled with lots of DRAMA ! I get more attention than many celebrities in their respective fields. I get more attention than the COS because the COS is to big of a spoon for their mouths. Seems that some are very upset that the COS agents are unwelcome to my site but naturally they can feel free to entertain them on theirs. Sure make another huge traffic drama with petty wild derriere fixations!

The long term goal for ESMBers is to start properly to duplicate , which they hope to achieve within the next 30 years. I always postulate  speedy achievements.

I wish you well Michelle and as always many fascinating  achievements.


For extensive drama help see also the following links:

P.S Michelle , I have sincerely forgiven you now after you have admitted your selective memory lapses. Get some professional help. I wish you well. We all care and support each other after all…. and I love being right! Thank you for mentioning it. Felt really good!
Michelle Sterling wrote to me on FaceBook: “You are right. He’s not banned after all. I’d forgotten how he left. It’s all coming back to me now.”

XOXOXO & Hugs , Catherine

FB: Panda Termint “Insults? That’s kinda Last Resort isn’t it?”

FB: Panda Termint “Learn to converse without name calling and insults, that’ll do for today.” That’s a good one Panda, perhaps you can more broadly disseminate your message. We all shall care about each other.

Here is the story: Several years ago I asked my husband’s name to be removed from what appears to be COS owned smear web site. Along with that I asked to be removed an altered article contributed to my husband. Immediately the site owner wrote us that he/she will post the altered article elsewhere and so he/she did…. imagine where …. on ESMB.

Now I have been told many people got spammed with hate emails and doctored images of my husband. The very same contents, insults last resort and doctored images  are again distributed on ESMB. So if you get upset at spammers sending you juvenile unsolicited emails make sure you know where to look for them.
