"The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway... will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly" - L. Ron Hubbard
"Don't ever defend. Always attack" - L. Ron Hubbard
Scientology, as spokesperson Leisa Goodman has stated "is not a turn-the-other-cheek religion". It is a paranoid organisation that conditions its members into believing that any failings are due not to Scientology but to the activities of external "suppressives" or "SPs" and members who are in contact with SPs (in the confusing Scientology jargon they are PTS to an SP. PTS=Potential Trouble Source)
In his HCO Policy letter of 18th October 1967 L. Ron Hubbard directed
" PENALTIES FOR LOWER CONDITIONS (Applies both Orgs and Sea Org)
LIABILITY - Suspension of Pay and a dirty grey rag on left arm and day and night confinement to org premises.
TREASON - Suspension of pay and deprivation of all uniforms and insignia, a black mark on left cheek and confinement on org premises or dismissal from post and debarment from premises.
DOUBT - Debarment from premises. Not to be employed. Payment of fine amounting to any sum may have cost org. Not to be trained or processed. Not to be communicated or argued with.
ENEMY - SP Order. Fair Game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.
L. RON HUBBARD Founder"
In his HCO Policy letter of 21 October 1968, Hubbard directed:
"CANCELLATION OF FAIR GAME
The practice of declaring people FAIR GAME will cease. FAIR GAME may not appear on any Ethics Order. It causes bad public relations. This PL does not cancel any policy on the treatment or handling of an SP.
L. RON HUBBARD Founder"
So the policy continues, it is simply kept quiet.
The harrassment takes forms such as raids on the pretext of combatting 'copyright terrorism' (i.e quoting from Scientology's own documents) on the homes of critics such as Dennis Erlich and Arnaldo Lerma, endless legal manoeuvres aimed at bankrupting the target, and what is called 'noisy investigation' or 'dead-agenting' attempting to smear critics. "Don't ever tamely submit to an investigation of us. Make it rough, rough on the attackers all the way....Start feeding lurid, blood sex crime actual evidence on the attackers to the press". If the "actual evidence" does not exist, Scientology will attempt to create it.
Jounalist Paulette Cooper wrote "The Scandal of Scientology" and was subjected to "Operation Freakout" which (among many other attacks) attempted to frame her for making bomb threats. "The sixth and final part of Operation Freakout called for Scientologists to obtain Paulette Cooper's fingerprints on a blank piece of paper, type a threatening letter to Kissinger on that paper, and mail it" - U.S. Government sentencing memorandum on Mary Sue Hubbard (L.Ron Hubbard's wife) and other leading Scientologists..
Hubbard justified all this by saying "any person from 2.0 down on the tone scale should not have, in any thinking society, any civil rights of any kind" (Science of Survival, part I page 131)
The following shows the extent to which Scientology tries to control its members' lives. Note among the stultifying jargon (e.g 2D or Second Dynamic means 'family'), the insistence on getting the victim to insist that she is not being brainwashed:

. LIMITED DISTRIBUTION . .
POTENTIAL TROUBLE SOURCE TYPE C DECLARE
A Potential Trouble Source Type Declare is hereby placed on former AOSH EU staff member. Theodora Apostolopoulou. Per HCO PL 27 October 1964R. "POLICIES ON PHYSICAL HEALING. INSANITY AND SOURCES OF TROUBLE". Theodora falls under the definition of a Potential Trouble Source Type C. The parents and brother of Theodora are publicly attacking the Church of Scientology in Greece. Furthermore. The parents are connected to an SP that has established an anti-religious group which has a history of attacks against the Church. Theodora is not to be accepted on any service lines in any Church of Scientology or Scientology Mission until she has fully handled her situation. In order to get the PTS Type C declare lifted, Theodora needs to complete her Type C handling. Once the handling is done, she is to submit a full CSW TO OSA EU enclosing all evidence showing that this situation is handled.

2. ON AN IMMEDIATE BASIS DORA SHOULD WRITE A LETTER TO HER MOTHER WHICH SHOULD INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING POINTS: SHE WOULD FOLLOW UP FROM THE MEETING WITH HER MOTHER AND COVER THE FOLLOWING POINTS: - IT WAS GOOD TO JUST SEE THE MOTHER AND BE ABLE TO SPEAK WITH HER AND SEE HER. - DORA SHOULD SAY THAT THE MOTHER LOOKED STRESSED. SHE SHOULD SAY THAT SHE WAS NEVER THAT WAY BEFORE. AND THAT SHE DOES NOT WANT ALEV ON THEIR LINES. TROUBLING THEM AND GIVING THEM FALSE DATA. DORA SHOULD STATE THAT IT IS NOT OK THAT HE IS DOING THAT AND FEEDING YOU HORROR STORIES. DORA SHOULD STATE "I HAVE BEEN IN SCIENTOLOGY AND I KNOW IT BEST AS I HAVE STUDIED DATA IN IT. I KNOW THE PERSONS WORKING IN IT.I KNOW THE PROGRESS I HAVE MADE (GIVE EXAMPLES: BETTER AT STUDYING, UNDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF HONESTY AND TRUTH. YOU SHOULD NOTE ANY PERSONAL RUIN YOU HANDLED). TELL YOUR MOTHER, THAT YOU ARE UPSET AT HER ORIGINATIONS STATING THAT YOU ARE BRAINWASHED. TELL THEM YOU MAKE YOUR OWN DECISIONS IN LIFE AND TELL THEM THAT ALL YOU WANT IS THAT THEY CAN RESPECT THAT. -DORA MUST STRESS THAT SHE FEELS UPSET AT HOW A WHOLE FAMILY COULD BE BROKEN UP AND TURN AGAINST EACH OTHER. JUST BASED ON UNFACTUAL AND FALSE DATA FROM ALEVIZOPLOUS. -ALEV IS CRIMINAL IN WHAT HE IS DOING. HE USES PARENTS TO FIGHT HIS OWN PERSONAL BATTLE. DORA SHOULD STATE THAT AS LONG AS HER PARENTS MAINTAIN THEIR CONNECTION TO HIM SHE WILL NOT EVEN CONSIDER TO COME BACK TO THE HOME. -DORA SHOULD TELL HER MOTHER, THAT AS SHE THREATENS TO DESTROY KEFE AS STATED IN THEIR MEETING), SHE HAS DECIDED TO NOT REMAIN IN CONNECTION WITH THE MISSION AND WILL INSTEAD START TO LOOK FOR AN APARTMENT IN GREECE AND GET A JOB. DORA MUST MAKE IT CLEAR THAT SHE HAS DECIDED TO DO THIS HERSELF AS SHE DOES NOT WANT HER FRIENDS HURT OR FRIGHTENED, DUE TO THE CURRENT THREATS THE FAMILY HAVE MADE. DORA SHOULD STATE THAT SHE WILL NOT RETURN TO COPENHAGEN AS SHE FEELS THAT IT WOULD NOT BE RIGHT THAT SHE CONTINUES DOING THAT, WHILE MEANWHILE HER PARENTS ATTACK THE VERY CORE OF WHAT SEH BELIEVES IN. IT WOULD UPSET HER TOO MUCH. THUS FOR NOW SHE HAS DECIDED TO STAY IN GREECE. -DORA SHOULD INCLUDE THE POINT THAT SHE WILL NOT LIVE AT THE HOME OF THE MOTHER AS SHE WANTS TO BE ON HER OWN AND CREATE HER OWN LIFE WITHOUT THE PARENTS INTERFERING AND JUDGING EVERY ACTION SHE DOES. SHE SHOULD SAY THAT THE DAY I WOULD CONSIDER COMING HOME WILL BE WHEN YOU SIMPLY ACCEPT ME FOR BEING DORA YOUR DAUGHTER AND NOT ATTACK WHAT I DO IN LIFE. -DORA SHOULD STATE THAT IF THE MOTHER DOES REALLY LOVE HER, THEN SHE KNOWS THAT SOME DAY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO BE TOGETHER AND FRIENDS LIKE BEFORE. AS AT SOME POINT THE MOTHER WILL SEE THAT DORA HAS NOT CHANGED. DORA IS THE SAME DAUGHTER SHE HAS LOVED AND BROUGHT UP FROM BEFORE SCIENTOLOGY.
3. DORA SHOULD ALSO SEND A COPY OF THE LETTER TO HER FATHER. TELLING HIM THAT ITS A COPY OF THE LETTER SHE SENT TO HER MOTHER WHICH SHE WANTS HIM TO ALSO SEE AS SHE JUST WANTS HIM TO TAKE A MINUTE TO UNDERSTAND HOW DORA FEELS ABOUT WHAT HE IS DOING. DORA SHOULD STATE THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT THING FOR HER IS FOR THEM TO BE THE FAMILY THAT TRUSTED EACH OTHER, LIKE BEFORE. SHE SHOULD ASK HER FATHER TO TELL ALEV TO LEAVE THE FAMILY ALONE AS, AS LONG A SHER PARENTS ARE CONNECTED UP TO HIM SHE WILL NOT COME BACK HOME TO THE FAMILY. SHE SHOULD TELL HIM THAT IF HE WANTS TO CONTACT HER HE CAN AND THAT SHE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM HIM. .....THE LETTER SHOULD GIVE A RETURN ADDRESS OF A NEUTRAL (NOT STAFF) FRIEND OR POST OFFICE BOX (IF DORA CAN SET THIS UP) WHERE A RESPONDING LETTER OF THE PARENTS CAN BE SENT TO FOR RELAY TO DORA. OBVIOUSLY THIS WILL NOT BE THE ADDRESS OF THE PLACE IN WHICH DORA IS LOCATED, BUT ANOTHER LOCATION. THAT SHOULD ALSO BE THE PERSON WHO DORA GIVES THE NUMBER OF HER PARENTS.
4. ONCE YOU HAVE CHECKED THE LETTER AND ENSURED IT IS OK FROM A VIEWPOINT THAT THE PARENTS MAY ALSO USE THIS PUBLICALLY. SO IT SHOULD BE IN A STYLE THAT IS IN REALITY FOR THE PARENTS AND REAL THAT THEIR DAUGHTER DORA WROTE IT (NOT WRITTEN AS THOUGH A CHURCH OFFICIAL DICTATED FROM WHERE SHE IS ACTUALLY BASED (THIS IS SO THAT SHE DOES NOT GIVE A CLUE AS TO HER LOCATION).
5. DORA SHOULD INDIVIDUALLY WRITE TO HER BROTHER. SHE SHOLD SAY THAT AT THIS POINT DUE TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED SHE ONLY FEELS SAFE IN WRITING TO HIM AS HE HAS SHOWN THAT HE DOES NOT TRUST HER AS HIS SISTER ANYMORE THROUGH HIS ACTIONS. SHE SHOULD SAY THAT I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT YOU WOULD TRUST AN OUTSIDER MORE THAN YOUR OWN SISTER AND ASK HIM TO EXPLAIN WHAT HAPPENED. SHE SHOLD STATE THAT SHE IS AN ADULT AND CAN MAKE UP HER OWN MIND. DORA SHOLD TELL HIM THAT FOR NOW SHE HAS DECIDED NOT TO GO BACK TO COPENHAGEN OR TO GO TO THE MISSION AS SHE IS UPSET THAT HER FRIENDS GET HURT. DUE THAT HER FRIENDS GET HURT, DUE TO HER FAMILY ATTACK ON HER. THIS UPSETS HER. DORA SHOULD STATE THAT SHE LOVES HER FAMILY MORE THAN ANYTHING. AND IS NOT GOING TO ALLOW ALEV TO SPLIT THEM UP. SHE SHOULD STATE THAT SHE IS CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR AN APARTMENT AND WILL LET HIM KNOW WHERE SHE LIVES IN THE NEXT WEEKS. SHE SHOULD TELL HIM THAT SHE CANNOT UNDERSTAND HIS ANGER AS SHE NEVER WOULD DREAM OF TELLING HIM HOW TO LIVE HIS LIFE OR WHAT TO DO AS SHE KNOWS THAT HE WOULD KNOW WHAT IS RIGHT AND ME UNDERSTAND THAT, AND END OF THE LETTER GIVING A RETURN ADDRESS OF A FRIEND AT THE OTHER LOCATION (SAME FOR THE PARENTS LETTER).
6. CHECK THE LETTER, MAKE SURE ITS OK IN THE CASE IT WOULD GET USED PUBLICALLY, ONCE YOU HAVE CLEARED IT, GET THE LETTER SENT FROM A CENTRAL POST OFFICE (SO AS TO NOT REVEAL LOCATION OF DORA).
7. DORA IS TO GET A JOB SO AS TO FINANCIALLY SUPPORT HERSELF.
8. DORA IS TO MOVE TO A NEW APPARTMENT, WHERE SHE CAN BE INDEPENDENT AND DISCONNECTED FROM THE MISSION (THIS INCLUDES MISSION STAFF AND ACTIVE PUBLICS).
9. DORA IS TO SET UP A POST OFFICE BOX OR GIVE HER NEW ADDRESS (ONCE RE-LOCATED) TO HER PARENTS, SO THEY KNOW WHERE THEY CAN CONTACT DORA.
10. DORA IS TO APPLY A FULL PTS TYPE A HANDLING ON HER PARENTS AS PER HCOPL PTS TYPE A HANDLING. THIS MEANS THAT SHE IS TO REGULARLY EXECUTE THE FOLLOWING ACTIONS:
A) PHONE THE MOTHER AND ALSO THE FATHER TO SPEAK WITH THEM AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK, LETTING THEM KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND GIVING THEM GOOD NEWS. CARE ABOUT THEM ASK THEM ABOUT THEIR ACTIVITIES.
B) CONDITIONAL: IF THEY ASK YOU TO COME HOME AND STAY WITH THEM. STATE THAT YOU WILL NOT DO THIS, NOT UNTIL THEY DISCONNECT FROM ALEV AND START TO ACCEPT YOU AS THEIR DAUGHTER AND ACCEPT YOUR DECISIONS IN LIFE. USE THIS R-FACTOR EVERYTIME WHEN THEY TALK ABOUT GETTING YOU HOME OR WHY YOU DO NOT STAY WITH THEM ETC. THIS MUST BE TR3'ED SO THEY BEGIN TO SEE THAT THEY DO NEED TO DISCONNECT FROM ALEV.
C) IF THE PARENTS ASK YOU TO VISIT THEM, TELL THEM THAT YOU WILL ONLY DO THIS IF THEY ENSURE THAT ALEV IS NOT THERE. DO NOT GIVE THEM AN EXACT TIME, BUT STATE THAT YOU WILL POP BY FOR DINNER AS SOON AS YOU GET THE TIME. YOUR VISIT SHOULD BE TOGETHER WITH A FRIEND (NON-MISSION STAFF OR A NOT A KNOWN SCIENTOLOGIST), YOU SHOULD NOT NOTIFY THEM BEFOREHAND OF THE VISIT (AS THIS GIVES THEM TIME TO PLAN. JUST TURN UP AND BRING FRUIT OR WHATEVER IS IN ETHNICS AND JUST LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU ARE HAPPY TO SEE THEM ETC. IF THEY BRING UP THE TOPIC OF SCIENTOLOGY, TELL THEM THAT YOU CHOOSE NOT TO DISCUSS IT AND RATHER USE THE TIME TO TALK OF THE FAMILY, WHAT THEY ARE DOING. WHAT THEY ARE PLANNING TO DO IN THE SUMMER OR FOR CHRISTMAS OR WHATEVER. IT IS A GOOD ROADS WEATHER MEETING.
D) MAINTAIN YOUR LETTER WRITING EVERY FEW WEEKS, GOOD ROADS-GOOD WEATHER, TELL THEM ABOUT HOW GOOD THINGS YOU ARE DOING AND LET THEM KNOW YOU ARE DOING WILL. TO YOUR FATHER AND MOTHER. SEND PHOTOS.
E) AT A GRADIENT DURING YOUR PHONE COMM LET TEH MOTHER KNOW THAT YOU ARE ALWAYS THERE AND IF SHE NEEDS HELP ON ANYTHING SHE SHOULD LET YOU KNOW (COOKING FOR A BIG FAMILY EVENT OR SHOPPING OR WHATEVER - THIS OF DEPENDS ON YOUR DISTANCE FROM WHERE THEY ARE BASED). THIS IS TO INCREASE YOUR FAMILY INTERACTION.
F) START TO CREATE MORE 2D ACTIVITIES SUCH AS INVITING BOTH YOUR PARENTS OUT TO A MEAL IN A RESTAURANT TO CELEBRATE AN EVENT OR JUST SO YOU CAN SEE THEM. THIS IS PART OF YOUR BUILDING UP OF ARC. FROM THERE YOUR SHOULD ELEVATE THE ACTIVITY TO SPENDING A DAY OUT WITH THEM (BEACH OR WHATEVER).
