The New Ethics: Declaring the Independent

November 4, 2009

As might be predicted, once Sherry Katz, New OTVIII, had published her Knowledge Report about Tech and Policy violations by the current Church of Scientology management, they were quick to issue a Suppressive Person Declare on her, and send it to all of her friends.

The declare was sent by e-mail all around Los Angeles and forwarded to other areas. One isn’t even supposed to send KRs by email, let alone an SP Declare, but someone goofed and it went out. And it has backfired. OSA Int has tried to “pull it back” stating that it was never meant to be BPI and that they are “issuing a new “official” one.” Oops. Too late. Sherry already had copies of the declare in hand, forwarded to her by a number of her friends.

Our support goes out to Sherry. It is not easy being the target of one of these issues, particularly as they are normally, these days, filled with half-truths, innuendo and generalities.

But the truth is, the action really backfired on the Church. As a result of this issue going out, Sherry has received a flood of support from both those who have left the Church and those who are still in. And ironically, the e-mail from JoJo Zawawi, telling Sherry’s friends to disconnect from her on Facebook, resulted in a flood of Friend requests. Sherry has copies of not only JoJo Zawawii’s email suggesting disconnection on Facebook but also a similar e-mail from Marty Kassowitz.

It is times like these when one discovers one’s true friends. LRH defined a true friend in these terms: “What a true friend does. For one thing they stand up for one, give him council, they help him in adversity, they safeguard his reputation, won’t hear ill of him, share his triumphs, ignore his faults.”

Sherry’s Declare issue is a masterpiece of generalities and innuendo.

In HCO PL 2 June 65, “Writing of an Ethics Order,” LRH says this:

“When writing an Ethics Order, don’t ARC break its readers by leaving out the data. …

“Where did it happen? Is it in our area? What did he do? Who did he do it to? What’s the evidence? …

“Don’t be unspecific or you leave people in a huge mystery. …

“Always put in what you know, nothing you don’t know and only what you have evidence or witnesses for. Ethics Orders are issued on real data, not opinion.”

I’m sure this is one of those PLs that is “no longer in use” in the Brave New Church of Scientology. Certainly modern SP Declares leave out all the pertinent information – actual names, events and specifics.

For instance, the issue says Sherry was a “source of enturbulation” at Pasadena Org. But it omits to say that her “enturbulation” consisted on writing Knowledge Reports on the alteration and non-application of HCOBs and HCO PLs in that organization, the ripping off of her technical personnel by CLO, the efforts of the then Flag Rep to stop her from questioning and protesting the flood of random programs coming into the org, and many other outnesses.

The SP declare also states that Sherry was the subject of a 2007 Non-Enturbulation Order. Sure. Her seniors didn’t like all of her Knowledge Reports. Sherry went to the Freewinds in late 2007 to get help handling the escalating situations at the Pasadena Org. When she returned, the FR who had issued that Non-enturbulation Order was being removed from post.

Sherry continued her Knowledge Reports and refused to compromise with the Policy and Tech outnesses. She refused to go into agreement with Auditor Code violations, unrealistic programs, and CLO management terminals pulling her Tech staff off post to reg them for the Basics or recruit them for other posts. After a year and a half on staff, writing reports, refusing destructive orders, and being constantly attacked for being “non-cooperative,” “rude,” or “writing too many KRs” (actually stated to her senior by the ED), and running her division “autonomously”,  Sherry decided to look for a deeper, underlying source of all the insanity. She writes,

“I realized, after getting a brilliant 10 August interview from an OTVIII, Class VI friend of mine, that there was not one person at the Pasadena Org that was suppressing the org. Not one suppressive in the group. All these people were my friends, most of the staff were OTV or above with a majority of these OTVIII. These were good people, I knew these people. No one in that org had an evil bone in their bodies. It affected me greatly when I realized that all these caring, hard-working dedicated staff members, these OTs were simply being used as pawns in an insidious game. So, I started to dig. As a trained Data Evaluator, it didn’t take long to find who was really at the bottom of all the insanity. I realized also that it was no accidental strategy when Miscavage stated at a Maiden Voyage I attended ‘The way to boom an org is to get the OTVIIIs at the helm and let them run with it’. But make sure they do not get trained as Executives so they fail miserably. That is the key. I, fortunately, did not fit into that pigeonhole. I was trained, I knew my policy. I am not, by nature, a calm, easy-going individual. Anyone who knows me can certainly attest to that. I fought back noisily. Obviously, I was trouble.” (See Messin’ With the Eights, Part 2)

She continues:

“I had thought I was joining staff at a Church of Scientology. Scientology as laid out by the writings of L.Ron Hubbard.  I petitioned 3 times in 3 years to finally get permission to join staff from RTC. I routed on staff the next day. I wanted to help boom a faltering Pasadena Org. But when I couldn’t actually get Scientology applied in that org, I relinquished my support as is my privilege. I could not agree to be part of a group that did not apply standard Policy and Tech. I got on a Leaving Staff Routing form. I did all the steps (including an O/W write up with meter exams, etc) except the final one (the Leaving Sec Check) which, after lengthy phone conversations with the Sr. C/S Margaret Supak (Freewinds), was determined, for case reasons, to be put off .”

Sherry is also accused, in her SP Declare, of “associating with known squirrels.” Sherry commented to us that “the only squirrel group I’ve ever been a part of was, ironically, the Pasadena Org.”

Let’s keep in mind that a squirrel is one who alters Scientology. With that definition in mind, David Miscavige’s Brave New Church of Scientology is right now the largest squirrel group on the planet.

This is what happens when people try to speak out against the off policy actions of the current Church of Scientology management. They get threatened or cowed into silence. If they persist, they are issued with “Non-enturbulation orders.” If they still persist, they are declared “Suppressive.” It’s all about control and quashing any dissent. David Miscavige only wants people on staff who will meekly go along with whatever destructive actions he orders.

Sherry, welcome to the ranks of those deemed “Suppressive” by David Miscavige. You are in good company.

    This perversion of ethics is astounding. It has gone from making a safe environment in which auditing can occur and ensuring standard tech and policy to enforcing an obedient environment where misapplications and alterations of tech and policy are never questioned.

    So many Scns are “clay pigeons” lacking as they do any familiarity with policy. I notice they are given programs without any proper hat, which would familiarize them with the policy underlying the program issued to them. BIG MISTAKE to mess with a trained Data Series Evaluator.

    Sherry: my heart goes out to you and to those good people at Pasadena Org and in all the Churches around the world.

    What is also interesting, on looking back at my Sea Org experience of 5 years, is that I had always been a stickler for standard policy. I got myself fully hatted on every post I ever held and I knew what was on policy and off. I had the same attitudes towards those that would try and get away with giving me cross orders or directing me to do something other than my post or in violation of LRH policy. The difference though was that I was in a relatively sane environment with relatively sane and OEC TRAINED executives who responded to my “this order is in direct violation of this policy” or “that is not my hat” or “what policy are you operating from” by acknowledging their mistake and backing off. I was never held in disdain or issued “non enturbulation” orders based on either 1)my attitude in delivering my comm or 2)questioning off-policy actions by quoting policy or 3) refusing destructive actions. LRH was my defense and I used it tooth and nail.

    These days, with no one getting hatted in OEC, the rampant “hey-you” policy of staff doing whatever they are directed to do for whatever “agenda of the day” is ordered, few staff are allowed to do their own jobs. Of course, they wouldn’t know that because they are not hatted. Quite insidious.

    VWD to Sherry! I thought the CofS had stopped issuing actual SP Declares, as in letting them escape the Int or CLO filing cabinets. Because then the recipients might put them intact online in order to ridicule them, or sue their a** in court for libel. Maybe we’ll see some more in the coming weeks. 🙂

        Hiya Sherry,
        I’m not a Scientologist, but I read the Knowledge Report you wrote. You are a brave, diligent, and an observant lady. SP Declare via email is cheap, tacky, silly, and strange. Tory Christman had hers laminated and uses it as a teaching point. It’s well known to the public, so this is yet another PR flap. Those seem to be happening a lot lately.

        I hope you find your happiness! Wishing you well from Wisconsin 😀

    Amazing. CofS will never ever grant quarter to anyone who takes them to task for their misdeeds.

    Now, re the goldenrod being mailed- well, maybe they’re not supposed to do it but they do it. When I got mine, I was out of town for a couple of years, the cult knew it, and they tried to make my husband give them the address. So they could mail it.

    Expecting them to make sense and to be consistent is like…well, something out of the movie: Brazil.

    Sherry, that’s just awful. They’re such dicks. My opinion is that their only interest in tech and policy is to play politics with the lives of others while enhancing their own. (“They” in this case being church management and DM & co).

    I have a question and you don’t have to answer if you’d rather not discuss it, of course. Not soliciting an immediate response- but what do you want to do now, ideology-wise?

    A few days ago, I read Sherry’s declare, (emailed to me) and one thing that stood out was that several passages clearly dead-agented Tommy Jones’ recent insistence that Disconnection does not occur. The declare writer DOCUMENTED that their own spokesperson was bald-faced lying! UNBELIEVABLE!

    There must not be a single person left in OSA who dares to think an original thought and is able to see the differences, similarities and identities surrounding the mounting problems in front of them.

    The robotism evidenced by the people that wrote and emailed that declare is ASTOUNDING!

    They do that- they do contradict themselves. I believe their guiding principle is mainly “Do what you’re told”.

    At my final handling, the DSA told me that the forum to which I was posting (that they were trying to make me stop posting to and reading)- alt.religion.scientology wasn’t really a group at all, just a loose knit band of crazies. I replied: “I’m glad to hear you say that. One of the things they said at my last handling was that I was guilty of association with suppressive groups.” See? Total contradiction…

Anyways, great news because Sherry’s writeup can be placed alongside the declare as the exact reason for the declare and passed around as part of our growing dead agent pack. OSA’s doing more to promote the cause than any of us. It’s really bizarre when you think about it.

      Maybe its deliberate. After all, what do you do when you think change needs to be made and you can’t get anywhere internally?

      Even sadder, I read Marc Headley’s story and I just hung my head and cried for all those kids who grew up as Scns, knowing no other life, who signed on to the S.O. with dreams of a new civilization only to be treated in the worst possible fashion. No one deserves that and all of them deserve our love and care. They’ve already been hurt and sometimes very badly. I don’t want to hurt them any more, I just want them to do well and gain the very real joy that auditing and real ARC can bring.

    JoJo Zawawi (who is an Arab supporter) and Marty Kassowitz both fancy themselves as Church of Scientology Ethics Enforcers. Each have ruined many a Scientologist’s la-la-land happiness and sent them on the road to Doubt and eventually getting out of Scientology. Well done JoJo and Marty, you’ve probably made a few more ex-scientologists with your recent escapades!

        November 6, 2009 12:45 am

        <<>>
        JoJo married a young Saudi man many years her junior (about 15 yrs?). Then started to alienate hoardes of other scientologists with her pro-arab political agenda, while attacking any “Bush supporters” long before Bush became unpopular. She uses her political agendas to make enemies wherever she goes. Though seeming non-sequitur to those with no sense of humor… it’s “calling someone names”. Only in this case it’s truth, not libel.

      • November 6, 2009 1:09 am

        Yeah I knew Jo Jo and I’ve met her husband too.

        Really I don’t see the “joke” in saying she’s an “Arab supporter”. Is the so called “humor” based on the fact she just happens to be Jewish?

        As far as Bush is concerned, as far as I’m concerned like Clinton he should have been impeached but that is a discussion for another board not this one.

        Which brings me back to my original point. I thought that what you wrote here was non sequitur. Also I didn’t think it was all that funny.

        As the old comic, once said “First there’s comedy and then there’s that.”

    Some forums are moderated and allow or disallow certain comment. That’s the internet for you. In fact, that’s LIFE for you.

    Hubbard was better at handling criticism in that case, even if it was just for PR reasons that he let Burroughs off easy instead of attacking which could have created serious backlash. He was capable of that kind of act, even if it wasn’t necessarily out of anything most people would call morals.

    The comments against Paul Haggis on the other hand were quite public and could only possibly come from one source if they contained details from auditing sessions.

    I saw rebel’s comment more as a way to point out Miscavige’s incompetence, rather than painting Hubbard as (in general) tolerant to criticism.

    Marty may have considered links or certain words to be a reference to confidential materials, which he doesn’t allow. Otherwise, why he removed your comment confuses me as well, as it was certainly valid and based in fact.

    You are correct about the more you wrote KRs and pointed out the off-policies, the more you were targeted. I went through the exact same thing myself. But I changed my course, I kept pointing them out to all my scientologist friends by showing them the correct LRH’s policy instead of writing a KR to the church of Miscavology.

    I was one of those people that received messages on Facebook from Jojo (who I don’t know at all) and Marty (whom) I barely know). I know Sherry better than either of these people, and she is no SP!

    If someone wants to leave the church and announces to both sides that they have done so, isn’t that a step of the doubt formula?
    It is the rampant out tech and out ethics of individuals violating their own integrity that has gotten us to this point in the church. I have not officially announced my departure from the church, but I will back up those, like Sherry, who for their own reasons choose to leave.
    It’s not against the law, or against the rules to change one’s mind…especially not in Scientology, where we are supposedly becoming more free. For us to shun someone, because someone says they are as SP or declared is like following a herd mindlessly… not me.
    Our 3rd dynamic is not living up to the Code of Honor, as there are many, many cases of Declared SPs simply NOT being so.

      In fact Nicki the right to change one’s mind is one point among many in the UN’s Declaration of Human Rights, something I know in the recent past the church has touted and endorsed:

      “Article 18.

      * Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”
      Ref: http://www.un.org/en/documents/udhr/index.shtml#a18

    Well; they are not going to stop at anything to achieve: “KSW” and “put ethics in”.
    In their eyes is the gratest good.
    It´s easy to find some little misdeeds and faults on a Scientologist that HAS NOT BEEN A SPECTATOR ALL HIS SCIENTOLOGY LIFE; BUT A ACTIVE PLAYER.
    For a staff member, an auditor, or a diseminator theres a lot of action and a lot of times when he can go wrong because he IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THE HUMAN CONDITION.
    So the EO´s and OSA hang on that to “search for faults” and color them in a big fancy SP declare.
    Who cares?
    Who cares the opinion of a lunatic 3rd dinamic? (OSA)
    If they could and were allowed to think for themeselves; they will not issue a SP declare but investigate and find the outnesses and will not be that reasonables.
    I don´t know Sherry personally, only through is kind communication to me, but the history is the same on SP declares for people pointing out outnesses adn joining people wanting to correct the path:
    1. Use policy (wrongly interpretated) to justify a SP declare.
    2. Scare the freinds and relatives to the person with “you will be labeled as PTS if you carry on in contatc with he/she”.
    3. That allow us to block your bridge progress as you´re PTS.
    4. You´re f***ed up!
    5. Don´t worry; decide for yourself after this if you will remain connected to this “SP”.

    It´s an easy mechanic. To easy to view it as it is.
    Is a long story short.

      Dear Roberto,

      Coming from you, this means that much more. I know some of what you have had to go through and some of what you are going through with your family. You are the strong one. I don’t know if I could bear what you are bearing.

      All the points you mentioned are true and I have borne witness to them all.

      There are so many insanities right now that it’s actually harder to find the sanities within the church. I’ve observed that Scientologists are nervous wrecks, can’t have a decent comm cycle, are scared of each other especially if they have a different viewpoint on something, just panicked all the time, have this forceful attitude of “I have to put ethics in”. Talk about a state of electrification. I’ve never seen anything like this. Very scary.

      So here you are Roberto, amongst your true friends, and we WILL value real products and validate you for having a viewpoint which you are welcome to state openly. I am happy to call you my friend.

    Carmela is AOSHANZO Public E/O, possibly Dir I&R, not sure though:

    Timemachine started 5:21pm. 6/11/09

    Hi Carmela,
    I have reached a final decision.
    I will be severing ties with the org pending analysis as to why so many SP declares have been done on beings who are OTVIII and clear on the dynamics they have been accused of suppressing.

    I was told to leave the AO a few years ago, after barely starting STCC, as I was “not AO public”.
    I wish to end cycle with the invalidation and criminal exchange on that and receive my course fee back. Per refunds policy it is mandatory, legally binding and well posted.

    I will also get $900 in undelivered services from Sydney Day, you can run that if you think they will get enturbulated.

    I will also receive all IAS donations that are off policy per LRH and have slowed peoples bridges. Orgs earn their buildings and build new civilisations out of WDAH and outreach activities. IAS is squirrel.

    I am not so sure they will be able to avoid my reasoning as well as the OT staff so you may save losing more of your team at this time. I have done doubt, the current structure is off-policy, has an “excuse” about books and buildings in its place and is running Scientologists into the ground.

    Example: Narconon filmed people coming off drugs a few years ago in sydney, they filmed it at Mike Woods house, I was living there, they used our flatmates, who don’t like scientology and pretended to the entire scientology int public that this was a Narconon group… modus operandi.

    I do not condone what David Miscavige has done. Neither would LRH.

    I feel no hate, harm, upset towards you and never have. I do not want other “cycles” stuck to me, we obviously have different ideas on KSW1. Lets move on with our own cycles.

    You are working hard, you are even under great pressure and possibly by maintaining an aesthetic approach to life could be even further made wrong by insinuations of “out-2D” flows etc. I mention that because you felt you needed to clarify what you intended by “You look good” when you greeted me at the AO one day. Never compromise with your own integrity. Never disparage yourself or minimise your power. If it is not an item, DONOT clean a clean, but it came up and I noticed indicators.

    The following are facts:
    I have inarguable data as to David Miscaviges hatting on Policy as of 1990. In deposition he answered “No” to “Have you ever graduated the Org Executive Course?”
    http://www.davidmiscavige.wikiscient…_1990_-_Part_1

    To find the data hit ctrl-f (thats the ctrl, control key and “f” simultaneously) type OEC if you want to find his 1 hour Q&A or just “Org Executive Course” to hone straight in.

    He had restructured the orgs by this time.

    Kind regards,
    Martin

    I have every sympathy with Sherry as regards her declare.

    Just for balance and accuracy, I would like to pick up the point made on the Leaving Scientology website where it says: “Our support goes out to Sherry. It is not easy being the target of one of these issues, particularly as they are normally, these days, filled with half-truths, innuendo and generalities.”

    SP declares were always half-truths, innuendo and generalities.

    Ron may have said those things about being specific in ethics orders, but it is not something he or his henchmen over the years particularly applied.

    Look up some of the old declares and you will see plenty of innuendo, half-truths and generalities.

    The more it changes the more it stays the same. DM is just aping “source”. Just as LRH failed to do, so DM doesn’t follow LRH advices, which were often just issued for PR purposes.

    See Ron’s personally issued declare here where he orders reverse processing and the shooting the SPs!

    http://www.xenu-directory.net/docume…o19680306.html
    It makes modern declares look positively Theetie Weetie!

    It is important to differentiate what LRH said (often as a PR cover) from what he actually really did.

      The link you posted was broken, I believe it should be:

      Already in 1968 so likely was written by Hubbard himself? I believe R2-45 was intended mainly as a joke. Though even I would not presume any knowledge of what parts of his teachings Hubbard was really serious about.

        Yes R2 45 was intended as a joke, since there is no such actual process, so was in my opinion the idea of “reverse processing” them, gallows humor, since there was no way they would ever seek auditing now the word was out in the Org or Field that Ron was personally pissed off with them!

        He was dead serious about the fact that they were not covered by any amnesty, but this is per Amnesty Policy.

        I’ve read quite a few EOs by the Ol’ man and a lot of them are tongue and cheek while conveying the fact that he wasn’t too pleased, like when he found out that Jack Horner was ripping off the FCDC’s C/F and using it to promote Amprinistics!

        The flap that occurred with CADA, which despite of he still remained friends with A.E. Van Vogt.

        Unlike Miscavige, Ron had a sense of humor and was willing to forgive. In fact he forgave Horner several times.

    HCO Ethics Order #30 INT was intended as a joke???
    Some things speak for themselves, no interpretation required.
    There are good things and there are bad things, and the bad things are what they are.

      Obviously you didn’t read my reply to Anon, so I suggest you read it again because no where in there did I write that it was intended as a “joke”!

    Sherry, possibly you have a libel case as well as a potential Hate Crime case. The Cof$ has a Fair Game policy which authorizes Miscavige Scientologists to physically harm you now that you have been marked by the Church with your declare. Basically, by issuing that hateful Declare and spreading it around by email, a Fatwa has been issued on you by Cof$. Think about it. They’re not the only ones that can play this Hate Crime game.

      ExVet, thank you for your concern. It is all being dealt with. I have no worries and I don’t want you to either. Ok?

    It is very obvious that Sherry is a good Scientologist, and the SP declare on all and sundry who speak out is infuriating, because it is damaging to the goal of getting as many able people up the bridge as possible.

    While some very good work has undoutably been done by DM and his team, there are clearly things which are not right. My wife are I receive huge amounts of advertising through the post, and this is increased because my wife gets two lots, one with her name spelt correctly and one with her name spelt incorrectly.

    We keep maybe only 5% or less of what we receive and fill half of our trash bin each week with promotional materials. We feel for all the tree’s that are being destroyed. It is too much.

    We are ploughing through our basics, and want to keep out of controversy because we want to reach the top of the bridge. Why are their not enough of the OT people speaking out to protect the good name of Scientology, which is being affected, as many in the wog world do see Church of Scientology = Scientology itself.
