The OT Program to Destroy Class V Orgs

September 16, 2009

Well,  there is a new program for all OT Ambassadors, issued at this year’s Maiden Voyage Anniversary.  If you didn’t receive a copy, someone posted it to ESMB.

It’s a blueprint of how to destroy a Class V Org.

Think I’m exaggerating? Let’s have a look at it.  Let’s move past the lofty “Program Purpose” and generalized “Major Targets” and so on, and look at what the program actually tells the OTs to do.

“The entire field contacted and gotten through the Golden Age of Knowledge Basics Courses or the Extension Course.” That’s right, an order to get all Scientologists on to what are essentially Division 6 courses. How many of our Org Academies have been turned into Div 6 Course Rooms, with Scientologists and OTs channeled onto these minor book courses. Is this a standard Org program, or a David Miscavige hobby-horse? How does LRH say one booms an Org? I refer you to HCO PL 3 December 64R “Booming an Org Through Training.”  And that’s standard Academy training, not pushing to get everyone on Div 6 courses.  “High income in orgs has always occurred when the Academy was good.”

“Complete the fundraising for your Ideal Org.” We’ve analyzed this Ideal Org scam elsewhere. The fact is, LRH never pushed huge, swanky quarters, and never asked the public to directly pay for buildings. Public paid for their training and processing, period. What does all of this “Ideal Org fundraising” do to the local org? Takes away their public’s ability to pay for standard training and processing. Therefore Orgs will continue struggling along on little income, without the resources or staff to move into that empty “Ideal Org” building. Public will be continually pressured to give donations to the Ideal Orgs and to the IAS, leaving nothing for standard service income.

Well, the local Org can still make money selling Grades auditing, right? Wrong.

“Work with the Flag Service Consultants in your area to get the lower level public in your field selected to Flag to take advantage of the Flag Trained Grades Auditors…” So they are not to select people to their local Org for their Grades – they are supposed to send them to Flag, bypassing every standard reference on how Orgs are supposed to operate and how the Bridge is supposed to flow. All of the local pcs get scooped up and sent off to Flag.

“After the International IAS events throughout the year, help support the IAS by getting the field to become Lifetime members of the IAS or moved up to their next IAS Membership status…” In other words, if the local field has any money left after the Ideal Org push, make sure it is promptly scooped up by the IAS (and none of it goes to standard training or processing income at the local Org).

This isn’t a program on how to boom an Org. It’s a program aimed at forwarding David Miscavige’s current hobby-horses and maximizing short-term profits to International Reserves. It’s a program to mobilize OTs to feed David Miscavige’s real estate addiction, increase money to IAS slush funds, and pauper the local Scientology organizations.

And by the way, it’s written by “WDC for Ideal Orgs,” a post that LRH never, never called for. It is a post invented by David Miscavige.

And exactly who is on that post anyway?

    Wow!

    Rebel.

    Talk about psychic! Man we were just talking about this at Geir’s board. Particularly about how Div VI course are now counted in Div IV and how they are being used to pad the overall PDC.

    When I worked in orgs from the mid 70’s to the late ’80’s we never even thought of doing this counting Div VI courses in tech was verboten. Now practically every “course completion” is either for the “basics” or a congress course. WTF!

    Somebody was trying to convince us that the stat was up! Yet I pointed out if you took away all Div VI courses and retreads you’d find the stat was actually down, way down, like spiral dive crashed!!!!

    Now I see on top of that they want to turn the Mecca of Technical perversion into a Class IV org,delivering not the famous Ls or the special rundowns like the Case Cracker Rundown, Dynamic Sort Out or the New Vitality Rundown but….say what!!!! Grades!!!!!????? To quote Frank Zappa from just another the album “Just Another Band from LA” “Eddie are you kidding!!!!”

    If this doesn’t convince the flock that they are being led by a psycho looney tune than I don’t know what will!

    Because what he’s done is pressed the self destruct button for every org and so called “ideal org” on the planet!

      A person that would write, push and/or follow such a program has already left Scientology. This website is an appropriate place for them. Sooner or later, there will have to be a website called ‘leaving Mythcavology’. Wait a second…THIS is such a website.

    “Work with the Flag Service Consultants in your area to get the lower level public in your field selected to Flag to take advantage of the Flag Trained Grades Auditors…”

    Especially this one is completely insane. Flag auditing is much more expensive than local org auditing. Why would people buy a plane ticket, go to Flag, pay for living etc and more expensive auditing? Not necessary for the grades.

    In Sweden in the eighties this is exactly what the Flag Service Consultants did at the Stockholm Org. Scientologists borrowed money at the banks and at that time the banks were very loan-friendly so they went to different banks and the banks didn’t cross check the security needed, so the debt/equity-level for the Scientologists was really high (50:1, don’t know if it’s true though). How it all ended? The Flag Service consultans were declared SP and some people were dissatisfied with the auditing at Flag, it hadn’t worked out for them. And they did not get the money back according the the three month PL. Total catastrophy and out of policy. It was all in the news in Sweden too.

    Not the right direction. Local orgs should know how to audit. Keep people there. One step at a time.

    I was just thinking of all this yesterday and of course, you were right on it! The absolute insanity of this program simply boggles the mind. Especially the one about getting the local public to Flag for their grades. At our local WUS org, the OT Committee are just about the only public that the org has with the exception of a very limited number of lower level PCs and students. But with the entire OTC run by the OT Ambassadors pushing this target, they might as well close down the org. If I was still on staff, I would be screaming up the lines about this(not that it would do any good). And this Basics garbage. It is only a way to pad the stats. I was the Tech Sec when it all started. Trying to figure out the Academy stats were a joke. I only counted those guys already on Academy training who went onto their Basics in the STP, Course Comps stats. It was a total joke and a total mess. No one could figure out how we were supposed to run an Academy with everyone on Div Vl courses..I could go on and on but what’s the point. I just hope that some of the OT Ambassadors will WAKE UP and realize what they are being subjected to…

    Interesting to think that the OT’s and staff members that follow this program are so PTS and out of valence (and in you-know-who’s valence) that they have become suppressive themselves.

    And it gets worse.

    From one of my sources inside the FSO, I have direct
    evidence that Flag have now started to squirrel on lower level
    PCs too, in order to get their “stats up”.

    A case that recently came across my source’s plate showed that Flag had
    knowingly, intentionally and brazenly ignored incomplete earlier
    grade chart actions on the PC so they could throw them onto
    Miscavige’s “fastest grades in town” conveyer belt. And it was such
    a violation of LRH tech it all ended in tears and a cave in for the
    PC.

    But did they do a review and fix it all up for the PC? No, they made
    the PC wrong, made the PC responsible for the session and
    shamlessly booted them out of Flag, sweeping them under the carpet
    along with the unhandled red tag — 24 hour repair priority.
    Convenient, very convenient, I guess they were just too busy quickying
    grades on other PCs.

    • September 17, 2009 8:31 pm

      Amazing!

      But not unexpected. This used to be Flags modus operandi after the Lisa Mcpherson debacle. Any PC they considered might give them trouble they booted off lines. That is any case that didn’t run like a Cadillac.

      It used to be that Flag handled the tough unsolvable cases. Not any more!

      They set up this ridiculous line where they shunted the troublesome PCs off to lower orgs, franchises and field auditors. So they could be “set up” to receive Flag auditing. As if they didn’t know what a C/S 53 or a 40x looked like and never read C/’S series 95!

      I spent several years working in a Field Group that handled Flag’s screw ups. So I saw first hand what was passing for “Flag Auditing” in the reign of Miscavige!

      The errors weren’t just gross they were grotesque!

      Really it shouldn’t surprise me that now they’re into to quickie grades, but it does. There was a rumor going around that Davy picked up a copy of HCOB 5 April 77 which restored Quad Grades and ran with it. As so often happens the lil’ tyrant didn’t read the rest of the HCOB, you know the part that said they don’t replace Expanded Grades or had taken a clue from the title i.e. “Expanded Grades”!

      Any way my suspicion is that he plans to quickie as many cases as he can onto NOTs so Flag has an unlimited source of income doing 6 month checks!

      This is probably why he wants lower orgs to send their PCs to the Mecca of Technical Perversion to get quickied on their lower grades. Probably more technical degrades are in store for these “lucky” PCs. I wouldn’t doubt if he’s figured out a way to cut down the time on the Advanced courses to nearly nothing as well. In fact there have been recent issues of “Source” Magazine bragging about the speed of delivery. Despite what it says in the policy “Technical Degrades” about doing this.

      Oh well if you’re a lurker and you still happen to be a member of the Church of Miscavigology. It’s time to rearrange the deck chairs.

        Oh RJ, you make the Flag experience as public in those days sound almost charming in its chaotic absurdity; what ACTUALLY happened in these years (in my case it was 2001) in reality was far more sinister.

        I paid a big wedge for case cracking – it was excting to think that after various “progress programs” I was going to get unstuck on the Bridge at last. After 1.5 days of routing form I ended up in the ethics office. Two very old items in my folder were dug up that “showed” I had had a psychotic break (I hadn’t). The tone and questioning of the MAA was very introverting and aggressive. It was assumptive, in other words it was “obvious” that I had had a psychotic break, so I somehow had to “prove” that I hadn’t. After a couple of days she let me go the HGC, although her demeanour said clearly she didn’t believe me. So on the 4th day I am told I would have a Class XII auditor. Wow! After a bad start, things could only get better, right? Not exactly.

        My Class XII , after TITS, said “I’m not audting you”. Now having been on staff I knew exactly what that meant. I was surprised but initially went with the flow. Class XII in the Mecca of technical perfection must be right, right? This went on for a few sessions and I asked the auditor quite a few times for some kind of R-factor on what was going on. I thought I had paid for case cracking. No R-fac was forthcoming, the sec-checking continued for 50 hours. I was getting anxious as I knew the re-sign line was fast approaching and I was already in debt, what with the IAS, book donations etc etc. After a casual conversation with another public one morning I allowed myself to realise that I was in fact doing very badly and felt like shit. I communicated this to the auditor who TR 2ed me and carried on the endless sec-checking.

        On the routing-out form out at the reg I asked in all sincerity if, since all the sessions had started “I’m not auditing you”, I was able to now get the actual auditing I had paid for. After all, I still believed the tech terminals must somehow be right. Surely. The Reg passed me over to Harvey Jacques, who is now the CO I believe. Harvey asked me in various ways if I had any money and then turned back to “my” reg saying “this guy hasn’t got any money – what are you wasting my time for”.

        It was a crushing experience. My wife was horrified – I had arrived at Flag cheerful and optimistic. I left feeling like an unwanted criminal. I had never heard of Lisa McP and didn’t have a clue what was going on. It is only very recently after doing my own research that all the pieces started falling into place. I know from talking to others that mine was far from an isolated experience. I have tried to get some sort of explanation from Flag ever since – resounding silence.

      • September 25, 2009 7:38 pm

        I’m truly sorry to read your experience here Flag PC. At the Field Group I audited at we ended up with many PCs who had similar stories. This doing a HCO Sec Check and calling it “auditing” when it is obvious to you and I that this is not what is occurring ,is what Ron calls the grossest auditing error of all and that is *no auditing*!

  7. September 17, 2009 7:34 pm

    Holy cow! Did anyone notice Stat #7 at the end of the program? Volunteer hours? There is a huge oxymoron behind this statistic just waiting to be unleashed on some poor Cont Pgms Ops. “Get the Volunteer Hours stat UP!” “Demand that your volunteers volunteer more hours!” Such a waste.

    • September 17, 2009 8:37 pm

      LOL!!!!!!

      I know at PAC when I was on course. They made new “‘Volunteer’ Ministers Course” mandatory!

    This program appears to me to be poorly written and poorly thought-out. We could list all the out-points here but what is the point.

    Beside what is listed above, look at Major Targets: #6, “provide the space and environment required to extend our reach everywhere”.

    In Data Series 40, The Ideal Org, here is some of what
    LRH says:
    “It would have enough space in which to train, process and administrate without crowding”
    and
    “It would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public”

    OK, so if the current Org is so crowded that it cannot provide training and processing, then I understand the need for bigger space. Apparently this has not been the case in many current Orgs.

    Does LRH ever talk about an “environment required”?
    Staff can certainly keep the space clean and tidy even if an old building. But what is “environment required”? Who made this one up? And what the heck does it mean.

    Now dig this. In same D/S 40 LRH states, about the Ideal Org: “the pcs would be getting full Grades to ability attained…”

    So I support my local Ideal Org by getting the pcs to go somewhere else (Flag) to get the grades, but we must create a “required environment” at the Ideal Org so the pc can come in to be sent somewhere else to get their processing, but we create the Ideal Org so there is enough space so they can get the processing but I won’t really process them there as I will send them somewhere else!

    My recommendation is whoever wrote this Program think it thru a little more carefully. And oh, maybe refer to what LRH has stated should be done on this subject.

      Reminds me of the Clear cognition. If you mock up your own reactive mind, why’d you need Dianetics in the first place? You didn’t even know there was such a thing until Dianetics told you there was…what’s the point?

    The programm puts all the Orgs in Danger and if they don’t handle the Bypass they’ll soon be in NonEX and further down ! It just doesn’t make any sense. A newly Flag trained auditor that is just back in my org has to look himself to find pc’s, while the OTC tries to handle them to go to Flag. What unnecessary conflicts and problems. I just can’t believe it !

    HAVE has become more important than BE or DO. HAVE is listed last for a reason.

    I remember Ron saying somewhere that if Scientology were to ever worry about huge pretty buildings, to bomb the headquarters of Scientology.
    His words not mine.

    Evals and Programs are wrong because of one reason…they can’t say the real reason for downstats because it would say the real problem is DM’s management. So stats continue to crash.
    Scientology’s PR has crashed to the bottom. They can no longer forcibly make people shut up about the abuses.

    Scientology may not be coming to it’s end but DM’s Scientology is…thankfully.

    I amend what I earlier wrote about no point in looking at outpoints. It is really rather revealing.

    From the OT Ambassador Prgm “we proudly stand with 15 Ideal Orgs done, and another 50 well on their way …all to move millions across the threshold of the Bridge”.

    This is a fallacy as Ideal Orgs do not move people across the Bridge. That is done by training and auditing individuals who have sufficient wins and successes that they move to higher levels. This is done by staff members who are competent and deliver good service, not by Buildings!
    You might say why duh, of course Buildings don’t do that. But let’s look more closely.

    This is an example of outpoint “change sequence of time”. What should happen is the Org follows established LRH policy, and builds up their academy and HGC, and provides such excellent service and results that the Org grows crowded and it must then move to larger quarters to ensure it can deliver the needed services.

    Doing it completely backward is buying the big building for your “Ideal Org”, and then expecting that will generate lots of new people. It will not. You will deliver lots of new people by growing the Org, gradually over time, bit by bit, pc and auditor trained by pc and auditor trained.

    The danger in the Ideal Org approach is it saps all the resources (money) from the local public that do currently exist, in order to buy the big building. It also increases your overhead expense. Even if that building is completely funded by donations, you have property taxes, utilities, maintenance, repairs, etc. This is an added expense that if not present would allow money to be put back into paying staff and increasing the delivery of services.

    2nd outpoint here would be ‘dropped out time”. This would also go with the above. Instead of building the Org’s public to the point that a new larger building is needed, this Prgm buys the big building immediately, thinking this will create an increase in the public. The time sequence is backwards.

    3rd outpoint is “add a falsehood”. It is not true that big Ideal Org, i.e. the actual MEST building, equals “millions across the threshold of the Bridge”. This is covered above.

    And 4th is probably ‘Omit a fact”. We really do not know why the Ideal Org Pgrm is being done. I would think it may be this: stats are not going up and there is no big push of new people into Scn. By building Ideal Orgs the public may be fooled into thinking there is great expansion, i.e. look at how many new buildings and space we are creating. Indeed in viewing the latest Freedom magazine “David MisCaviage at the Helm of Scientology’s Explosive Growth”, the biggest amount of statistics and pictures have to do with all the new buildings. How this equals expansion of Scn is of course unknown, as the actual vital stats, WD auditing hours, auditors trained, etc are not presented. Claiming that auditing hours doubled from 2004 does not really give a fair comparison of stats. A graph of the key stats for the last 10 or more years would more fairly present what is occurring.

    Interestingly if you took just the above outpoints, and then did a Situation Analysis of the area, you could probably find a Why on this Ideal Org Program being promoted. Further pulling the strings could lead you to examine other outpoints and find other Situations, and pretty soon you could follow it down and have the whole current Scn Leadership analyzed and the Why, when properly found, that would bring a resolution to the current crisis in the Church. Ron writes of such a comprehensive analysis in Data Series 9, ‘Errors’. It is valuable tech that is there to be used.

    I THINK…

    I think everyone is swallowing the “cover story” hook, line and sinker.

    Who is running DM?

    Follow the money, and you have the answer.

    It’s been a brilliant coup.

    Target 0: Ensure the whole operation appears “organic”
    Target 1: Destroy the technology that could disable the tiny core of true SP’s
    Target 2: Kill off any leaders capable of generating a powerful resistance
    Target 3: Convert the assets of the COS to private ownership
    Target 4: Kill off the COS, using an army of “controlled opposition”
    Target 5: Continue enslaving the planet with no further potential resistance
