    The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists is undergoing a few changes and revitalisation.

    I believe, after 10 years, it is time for APIS to move on to a new level of operation and expand further than I can take it. I was charged with establishing the group and ensuring the continuance of the original applied philosophy of LRH so that, come what may, there will always be repositories of the technology around for future generations. I have fulfilled that charge and the group is now established and has been functioning for 10 years so my job is now done. There will be a gradual change over that will take probably around 6 months in all. Then I will move onto establishing other functionalities that forward the progress of the philosophy and technology of LRH. But will still retain the position of Founder and will still he available as needed.

    As part of this change of operating basis, some existing staff and execs as well as new staff have taken up or changed their positions and have issued a Non Existence Formula in line with the Conditions Formulas as researched by L. Ron Hubbard.

    "Every new Appointee to a post begins in Non-Existence. Whether obtained by new appointment, promotion or demotion."

    "The Non-Existence Formula is:
    1. Find a communication line (Communication line: The route along which a communication travels from one person to another.)
    2. Make yourself known
    3. Discover what is needed or wanted.
    4. Do produce and/or present it."
    Introduction to Ethics Handbook. L. Ron Hubbard

    Founder
    As Founder it is my job to ensure that APIS stays on track and continues to fulfil its purposes and goals as originally outlined. I provide guidance, recommendations and suggestions to the Senior Executives. I am not involved in the day to day executive decisions or administration and activity.

    I do hold temporarily the posts of Website Administration including administering the websites, domain names and site management. Also the Publishing hat. I will be holding these hats only until a suitable person is assigned to these posts.

    I would like to know what is wanted of me from my position of Founder of APIS

    COO Technical & Quality
    Hi. I've been a member and staff of APIS since its inception 10 years ago. I've been through the ups (and sometimes the downs) of being part of an organization that is determined to ensure that standard tech - LRH's tech - exists for all who want to avail themselves of it. I am a Class VIII C/S, Class IX Auditor, SSIV and currently on OT VII. I reached Scientology in 1976 and in 1977 joined staff and was a staff member for two decades. My demise came when, as Senior C/S of my org, I wrote a Knowledge Report on the Golden Age of Tech (GAT) stating that it was acting as a Tech Degrade to auditors and C/Ses. Through all that followed, including the reverse sec checking and false Committee of Evidence, I never lost my faith and belief in the workability of the tech, nor wavered in my commitment to LRH and my free dedication to his mission. And I never will.

    Currently, with the re-organization of APIS, I am now posted as Vice President for Tech and Quality. As Ron says in HCOB 20 Oct 68, The Purpose of Class VIII:

    "The purpose of the course, then, is to produce an uncompromising zealot for Standard Tech whose reality is such that he will not do or tolerate sloppy rendition." LRH

    This has been my viewpoint since I graduated the Class VIII Course, and it will continue to be my viewpoint until the cows come home on a small planet somewhere around Alpha Centauri. It was also an early promise I made to Ron, and one I've kept through all my staff years, whether as a Cramming Officer, Word Clearer, Supervisor, or any of the many Admin and Tech posts I've held, the last being Senior C/S.

    The VFP of APIS is:
    "On-Source members applying standard Scientology tech and policy in the field to widespread awareness and support."

    In this way we can ensure that Ron's tech is available in unaltered form for those who are moving up the Bridge, and especially for those who have left the CoS and for those who will be leaving in the future. The tech enables one to go free and should not be withheld and used to create a monopoly or to control beings.

    To achieve this VFP, I follow HCOB 23 Jan 75, The Purpose of Class VIII (yes, there are two HCOBs, same title, different dates, different text):

    "STANDARD TECH The way a Class VIII gets in Standard Tech is by encouraging lower classed Auditors to use the materials of Standard Tech and apply them. A Class VIII must beware of invalidating lower classed Auditors and make sure he doesn't fall into that trap. Invalidation never works and is in fact destructive. Under invalidation an Auditor will cease to audit well, will goof and back off from auditing entirely. To get in Standard Tech, always encourage lower level Auditors to apply standard materials, tapes, HCOBs and books. Help them to do so. Direct them to the references. See they get crammed, not invalidated. After all, they are willing to help, or they wouldn't be Auditors. SUMMARY Class VIII is the standard by which other auditing is judged. Class VIII gives the certainty and precision of 100% Standard Tech. Class VIIIs get in Standard Tech by encouraging lower level Auditors to apply standard materials, never by invalidation. Every Auditor should one day make it to Class VIII. No org can afford to be without at least one Class VIII. These are the Custodians of Standard Tech." LRH

    This is who I am. This is my help flow and comm line. I know many of you have seen it, been part of it, contributed to it, or benefitted from it. Now, please let me know what you need and want from me and my post and how I can help you achieve your goals in Scientology.

    Thank you.

    Keeper of Tech & Policy Knowledge (KOT)
    My Hat is KOT, short for "KEEPER OF TECH AND POLICY KNOWLEDGE". It's purpose is:

    TO HELP LRH ESTABLISH TECH AND POLICY IN ORGS FULLY AND ACCURATELY AND IN FULL USE AND KEEP IT THERE.

    Part of that are also matters dealing in "Refunds" and "Repayments" but this does not usually apply to APIS inasmuch it does the Audting/Training facility and it's client(s) since APIS receives no money from them. Should however any disputes get onto our lines, then it's dealt with by the KOT and QUAL terminals per policy.

    Further, I see to it tech and policy is readily available and utilized. Part of that also incl. compiling the various courses and other materials with the help of experts such as Silvia Llorens and others which is then released to APIS members, auditors and training centers so standard tech can be gotten in on the field as well. As such I'm also taking on the SO's AVU function which is not part of the Class V's org board. (Attached is the Level 0 auditor's course to serve as a sample what I compile.) This creates a vast library APIS members can draw on, and when gotten into the hands of the public, it further promotes APIS as a standard source of tech of high repute. So if you need any materials, you can message me and I'll get them out to you, your PCs and selectees.

    Where out-tech exists, I have full ethics powers to stamp out squirrel activities. This means no Capt. Bill, psych-laced or other altered and mixed LRH practices.

    As far as targeted programs ... this would involve getting assistance from technical experts to construct courses, processing lists, tape transcripts, etc. where these are not currently fully available or in usable compiled form. So if one wanted to train on the Student Hat, a full complete course would be assembled which can either be studied directly from his laptop or by print up. Now and then previous unavailable LRH material leeches out of some archive or CO$, and compilations get revised or updated. If we only have an older checksheet for any given course, we'll redo it with the most current non-GAT references so the student is being trained on the full scope of the course. This is an ever-ending project as long as some materials are still coveted by Advanced Organisations.

    Currently a Class IX auditor checksheet is being revised and another fully comprehensive course released so we can make even more standard NOTs auditors outside the church. A couple of months ago the Solo NOTs Auditors Course (OT VI) was released in it's full glory, and marks the very first time anyone could standardly train on it outside the church with the full confidence knowing the intended EP LRH envisioned could be reached. APIS not only sets, but raises the bar on standard tech.

    Whats happening at APISIt might seem all quiet on the front but behind the scenes there is a flurry of activity.

    1 A project has been set up to update the stable of APIS websites. Currently it is in the planning and working out stage. What is going to be changed and in what way. This includes the incorporation of some of the content of some of the websites into the main site as well as upgrading all sites to as more modern and professional look. This is expected to take a couple of months due to time constraints but once it is worked out then the reconstruction will begin.

    2 Setting up the new host for the websites will be next. This is expected to be re-hosted in another country with back ups around the world to ensure the sites can never go down.

    3 We have a chap called Ken who will be doing the work on this and this will be organised directly we have achieved sufficient donations to do the construction and rehosting. He did good work on the http://www.LifeEnhance.org for Les and Anita and comes highly recommended. He is also not expensive.

    4 We are not sitting on our laurels, however. A campaign is underway to get more groups operating around the world and the latest is a group being set up in Pakistan and one which will be under the banner in Ghana. The Pakistan group is very small as yet and we are assisting them to get underway with very basic courses, training drills and the like. The Ghana group is focusing on a major issue in Ghana and the rest of Africa which is drugs. Assisting young people to get off drugs is a vital activity in that part of the world. The Ghana group is looking for a sponsor to sponsor their membership in APIS also as well as assist with supplying books and materials.

    5 The Italian branch of APIS continues to expand and grow. They have added more members this year and are auditing and training new people.

    6 Output of the monthly Newsletter and member's journal continues with great results in terms of queries for auditors and more information about scientology. Membership of both is growing and the newsletter is now sent out to over 250 subscriptions. That does not include the many that go to the website and simply download present and past issues on an ongoing basis. Many complements are received on the content and quality of the newsletter. Here are just a few examples.

    "I cannot believe it. This is wonderful. What a product." "Great issue - back to the basics." "Thank you very much for such a treasure of news!" "Thanks Michael, This is a very good and useful issue!" "Thank you very much. I've just come back from a trip and it was nice to sign in and read the content." "Very good Issue Michael, thank you very much!" "I wanted to say thank you for the very useful Newsletter, which motivates me to develop myself." "Thank you very much, Mike. Great lecture you featured, as always." "Thanks Michael, I liked the "TO DO" list from Ron. I have a case right now who needs exactly to do that." "And thanks for all the work you do putting this together. It really helps keep us connected to Source; it's good to read the articles and especially nice to read the wins and successes in the field. It's a professional product. Well done!"

    7 Our stats continue to be good. The main website continues to average about 600 hits a day and all the other sites average around 2000 hits a month each, the marysuehubbard.com hitting twice that on average. Each week we have queries for auditors, training and materials.

    Half the year has almost gone but we will continue to push ahead with our goals and purposes. We have a lot more to do! Thanks for your support and help. It is much appreciated!

    A letter from Karen De la Carriere Class XII
    exposing the death of her son Alexander Jenzsch

    Dear Scientologist,

    I am emailing you as a friend and fellow Scientologist to let you know about the mysterious and sudden death of my son Alexander Jentzsch at 27 years of age on July 3, 2012.

    Although I am not in the Sea Org right now, I served aboard the Flagship Apollo where I was trained by LRH to the level of Class XII C/S. I am one of only seven Class XII C/S' LRH ever made.

    After LRH took Flag ashore in Clearwater, I met and fell in love with Heber Jentzsch. We married and Heber went on to become the President of the Church of Scientology International. I remained devoted to LRH and to my duties as a Class XII C/S at Flag. I won "Auditor of the Year" at Flag numerous times.

    In 1984, I gave birth to our son Alexander.

    Alexander Jentzsch was born in the Sea Org. He formally joined the Sea Org when he was eight years old. Despite the promises that Sea Org recruiters made to Alexander, he did not receive a proper education. While other children were in school, Alexander was cleaning toilets and mopping floors at Flag. As a child working in the Sea Org, Alexander was made to work long hours and would sometimes sneak away to call me on the phone in tears.

    While LRH had made family time a daily requirement in the Sea Org, things radically changed under COB RTC David Miscavige and family time virtually disappeared. Unless there is a death or a PR flap of some kind, Sea Org members are almost never allowed to see their families. Alexander seldom saw his father, Heber. Factually, years would go by between the times Alexander was allowed to see his father. Alexander called himself "The Boy with no Dad". He saw Heber less than 11 times in 14 years.

    COB RTC David Miscavige ordered Heber Jentzsch and I to be divorced and has utterly destroyed our 2nd dynamic.

    I was suddenly a single mother with a child to support. Heber was unable to pay any child support. Indeed, Heber could not even support himself on his $50 per week Sea Org pay. I did not protest this as Heber was the President of the Church of Scientology International and I did not want to create a flap for the Church. The Church had me sign affidavits on video camera that I would never ask for child support.

    I was suddenly a single mother with a child to support. Heber was unable to pay any child support. Indeed, Heber could not even support himself on his $50 per week Sea Org pay. I did not protest this as Heber was the President of the Church of Scientology International and I did not want to create a flap for the Church.

    I routed out of the Sea Org in 1990 and took many years to pay off my $90,000 Freeloader Debt. I paid my Freeloader Debt so that I could remain a Scientologist in good standing. I knew LRH and knew the Tech worked miracles.

    After I left the Sea Org, I remained a loyal member of the Church of Scientology. I raised Alexander by myself and supported him financially when he entered the Sea Org. Alexander served on many posts during the sixteen years he was in the Sea Org. When he was a young man, Alexander married Andrea Kavon, a fellow Sea Org member.

    Alexander and Andrea Jentzsch routed out of the Sea Org in 2010 due to the fact that Andrea was pregnant and babies are not allowed in the Sea Org. The baby spontaneously aborted.

    Sometime after they routed out, I made the decision to publicly depart the Church in 2010 for the same reasons Debbie Cook outlined in her letter of January 1, 2012. Like Debbie, I saw the Church engaging in extreme over-regging and gross out tech. Having been trained to deliver the highest technical levels of Scientology possible, I know what Standard Tech is and is not. My decision to leave the Church was based upon my deep respect for LRH and my 100% commitment to preserve his legacy and technology. I could no longer be a part of what was happening in the Church under the deeply suppressive management of David Miscavige.

    I was declared a Suppressive Person. My son Alexander and his wife were forced to disconnect from me by OSA when I left the Church.

    In 2010, Alexander's father Heber Jentzsch was 75 years old and had not been allowed to see our son for many years. Heber has been locked up in the Int Base RPF for many years and remains locked up with other International executives.

    Due to the policies of Disconnection and RPF, Alexander effectively had no parents in 2010.

    After he left the Sea Org, Alexander took a job in sales at a Scientology-owned company in Dallas. During this time in Dallas, Alexander was involved in a traffic accident that injured him to such an extent that he began to take prescription pain pills. Alexander lost his job and began on a downward spiral.

    Because Alexander did not have $10,000 or more, the Church of Scientology would not and give him any auditing to handle the engram from the traffic accident. The Church would not even give Alexander any charity Chaplain auditing. It did not matter that Alexander's parents had served more than fifty years in the Sea Org. There is no compassion or mercy in the Church in present time.

    As a Class XII C/S, I have the technical skills necessary to help anyone. I could have helped my son Alexander handle the engram from the traffic accident. However, due to the policy of Disconnection no one from the Church of Scientology ever called me to let me know that my only child had been badly injured in a traffic accident.

    As an art dealer, I have a good income. I would have immediately paid to give my son the best medical care possible. Again, however, due to the policy of Disconnection no one from the Church of Scientology ever called me to let me know that Alexander had been badly injured in a traffic accident.

    It came as a shock to me, then, when someone called me to let me know that Alexander had been found dead in his bed on the morning of July 3, 2012.

    Alexander died at the home of his in-laws in Los Angeles. Both of his in-laws are New OT VII's.

    It was only after I began to ask questions that I learned of the traffic accident and that Alexander had allegedly died from a high fever.

    Through its spokesperson, the Church was very quick to publicly state that Alexander has left no suicide note and had over-medicated himself. This was a strange and suspicious claim coming from the same Church that claims to have the most powerful technology on the planet. I am working very hard to find out the truth about my son Alexander's death because the Church will not tell me anything and has forbidden Andrea or her family from telling me anything.

    The behavior of the Church raises questions: Where was the tech when Alexander needed it? He served 16 years in the Sea Org. Why not a lifeline in his time of need?

    Why did two New OT VII's allow a fellow Scientologist in good standing to over-medicate himself?

    Why had two OT's failed to help Alexander? This is a gross violation of point one of the Code of Honor written by LRH in 1954:

    "Never desert a comrade in need, in danger or in trouble."

    Alexander was clearly in need, danger, and trouble and yet he was utterly deserted by the Church of Scientology.

    I wanted only to cremate my son quickly per the scriptures of Scientology. When I sent a messenger over to the home of Alexander's in-laws to ask for his body, I was told:

    Any communication between Andrea and myself must go through OSA

    There would be no funeral or viewing for Alexander

    Worse, I was told that I would not be allowed to take one last look at my son

    This is the Church of Scientology in 2012 under David Miscavige:

    An LRH-trained Class XII C/S cannot use the tech to help her own son

    A grieving mother cannot see her son's body one last time

    No one will help a comrade in need, danger, or trouble for fear of incurring the wrath of David Miscavige or OSA

    The Church did not tell me that Alexander died. I had to find out from someone who cared enough to tell me.

    The Church never told you why Debbie Cook left as Captain of FSO. Instead, Debbie Cook sent out a letter herself to tell you why.

    The Church is not telling you that LRH's granddaughter Roanne Horwich recently blew from Int Base.

    The Church of Scientology under David Miscavige is a Church full of secrets, lies, and injustices.

    The Church of Scientology under David Miscavige uses Disconnection and SP Declares only to keep the truth from being known.

    I am writing this letter to let you know that the Church has tried to keep secret the news that Alexander Jentzsch - whose father Heber is still the President of CSI - died.

    The Church is keeping other secrets from you as well:

    Why is the Super Power Building still not open after almost twenty years?

    Where does all the money go?

    Why are the Ideal Orgs empty?

    Where is the expansion claimed by COB?

    That the entire Dror Mission in Israel just left the Church, and why.

    I am a Scientologist and will always be a Scientologist for I know the power of the tech.

    I love LRH and care enough about the tech and the church he created to send you this letter.

    I close by quoting what Debbie Cook said very well in her letter:

    "We all have a stake in this. It is simply not possible to read the LRH references and not see the alterations and violations that are currently occurring. You have a very simple obligation to LRH. Don't participate in anything off policy, and let others know they should not either. If every person who reads this email does nothing more than step back from off-policy actions we would have changed direction. If we took all that energy and directed it into auditing, training and raw public dissemination, we would be winning."

    Celebrating Success

    The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists (APIS) is continuing to expand with more members, groups and branches.

    This year we have:

    1. Started a new branch of APIS in Italy.
    2. Converted the Australian FANZA into an Australian Branch of APIS also.
    3. Working on setting up more groups in Australia.
    4. Doubled our private membership.

    The branch of APIS in Italy with highly classed auditors available for that area. Auditing is available up to OT and training is available for most of the technology. All practice the philosophy and standard application of scientology in line with APIS aims and purposes.

    FANZA, one of the original groups around, has been converted into a Branch of APIS also. Currently there is a rallying around of people in Australia to form groups in every city.

    Memberships have been steadily increasing and subscriptions to the monthly newsletter are very popular with more people wanting the information and theta communication line.

    Members get their own quarterly journal with heaps of fascinating articles and resources and the member's area is full of increased resources and a massive qual library.

    APIS has more websites pulling in more and more public interested to know the real Scientology.

    Our Social Networks are an outstanding success. We have over 4000 friends on Facebook with more joining daily. Seems people love the success stories, source quotes and interesting information posted on our Facebook profile and page.

    We get daily queries and so many people express relief that they have found something outside the church that is on source.

    APIS is going very well and continuing to expand.

    Press Release - New Name Change

    The International Freezone Association Inc is undergoing a name change. In order to reflect our true position in relation to the works of L. Ron Hubbard we are changing our name to:

    The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists (APIS)

    This is more consistent with our aims, purposes and goals.

    The IFA (International Freezone Association), as it was originally known, was formulated in 2003 when the Scientology freezone was very much in its infancy and consisting of many scattered groups around the planet. Most of these groups consisted of people who had either left or been kicked out of the church. The term itself was actually first employed by Bill Robertson of Rons Orgs fame some years before.

    When the IFA was first created, it was with a viewpoint of being an international organisation and as the word 'Freezone' was de rigueur at that time, this term was adopted and the International Freezone Association was born. The full story can be found at IFA History

    Since then the freezone has come to include a hotch potch of fringe groups and individuals not all of which are adherents of the original philosophy and practice but, instead, many tend to mix practices or alter the philosophy and technology to suit their own goals and purposes.

    "This meant that we had to consider pointing out the distinction between the IFA, now APIS, who adhere strictly to the philosophy and practice, called standard technology or 'tech', and those who do not." Said Michael Moore President of APIS.

    So being a strictly standard tech organisation from day one and having no interest in being lumped together with those who engage in non standard practices, a new name was sort to reflect our purposes and goals more accurately. After some consultations and surveys the name The Association of Professional Independent Scientologists Was arrived at in order to more truthfully express our stance in the scientology world as it has existed since the association was first conceived.

    Michael Moore added, "I would just like to take this opportunity of indicating that our purposes as outlined on the website have never changed and have always remained the same."

    The principle purposes of APIS are: Preserve the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard for future use so it is available for all mankind.

    Protect the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard so it is not altered, diluted or changed in anyway but remains exactly as Lafayette Ron Hubbard issued it.

    Promote the exact technology and original workable philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard so it may be known by all mankind.

    Over the coming weeks the website will be updated to reflect the new name change.

    Latest with Debbie Cook

    The latest on Debbie Cook is available at The Village Voice where an after the court case interview has been videoed and a time line of History has been provided.

    New Message from Debbie Cook

    Here is the text of the letter former high-ranking Scientology leader Debbie Cook released to the Tampa Bay Times.

    My name is Debbie Cook. Your publication just wrote about my New Year's Eve email to some of our Scientologist friends - church insiders - and included the full text of the email.

    Someone else turned around and sent this letter to thousands of Scientologists - news articles are reporting 12,000 - and from there, you published it and other media outlets sensationalized it further. My email was no doubt tough reading for outsiders, as it quoted liberally and invoked duties from our own church policies and organizations.

    Such matters are of paramount interest to Scientologists, but of no interest to the general public. Unfortunately this left various media to seize upon certain points that might titillate a public without a real understanding of the church, while downplaying the main point, which is my love for Scientology and my passion for it as laid out in the pure principles and guidance from L. Ron Hubbard.

    I am not trying to pick a fight with the Church, nor am I bitter, or blasting or any of the other things concocted by other media outlets. I am simply asking my friends to do their part, the part that Mr. Hubbard asked of all Scientologists, which is to make sure that they only follow the workable technology laid out in policy and bulletins written by Hubbard exactly as he wrote them. This is the responsibility every Scientologist has - to keep it unadulterated.

    This is the very reason I didn't want this in the press. All you got wind of was some internal group pressure to keep things on the straight and narrow. It was clearly intended as a communication amongst Scientologists.

    I have been a Scientologist for 36 years. My experience of meeting and working with Scientologists all over the world is that they are truly good-hearted, ethical and caring people.

    The staff of Scientology organizations work very hard, long hours to service and help anyone who walks in their doors.

    Scientology organizations provide services that help people with their problems and improve conditions in one's life. Whether that is drug addiction or alcohol abuse, marital problems, school problems, kid problems, work related stress or pretty much any of life's twists and turns.

    In most cases the reason Scientologists donate to the Church or even dedicate their lives to working for the Church is because their lives have been truly touched and they have been profoundly helped through the application of technology laid out by Mr. Hubbard.

    Scientologists are active in community service, with community clean-ups, Winter Wonderland, adopting streets, planting trees, working with the Fire Dept as emergency response. At pretty much any natural disaster anywhere in the world you will find Scientologists as Volunteer Ministers there on the scene helping in any way they can. These and many other incredibly good things that Scientologists are involved in are the reason we care so much.

    Message from Debbie Cook

    D

    Dear friend,

    I am emailing you as a friend and fellow Scientologist. As we enter a new year, it is hoped that 2012 can be a year of great dissemination and a year of real progress up The Bridge for all Scientologists.

    Although I am not in the Sea Org right now, I served in the Sea Org at Flag for 29 years. 17 of those years were as Captain FSO. I am a trained auditor and C/S as well as an OEC, FEBC and DSEC.

    I am completely dedicated to the technology of Dianetics and Scientology and the works of LRH. I have seen some of the most stunning and miraculous results in the application of LRH technology and I absolutely know it is worth fighting to keep it pure and unadulterated.

    My husband and I are in good standing and we are not connected with anyone who is not in good standing. We have steadfastly refused to speak to any media, even though many have contacted us.

    But I do have some very serious concerns about out-KSW that I see permeating the Scientology religion.

    I have the utmost respect for the thousands of dedicated Scientologists and Sea Org members. Together, we have come through everything this world could throw at us and have some real impingement on the world around us. I am proud of our accomplishments and I know you are too. However there is no question that this new age of continuous fundraising is not our finest moment.

    LRH says in HCO PL 9 Jan 51, An Essay on Management, "drop no curtains between the organization and the public about anything." LRH

    Based on this policy I am communicating to you about some situations that we need to do something about within our religion, within our group. Actions that are either not covered in policy or directly violate LRH policy and tech include:

    The extreme over-regging and fund-raising activities that have become so much a part of nearly every Sea Org org and Class V org as well as every "OT Committee" is not covered anywhere in LRH policy.

    Hardworking Sea Org members and the dedicated staff of orgs around the world aren't choosing to do these actions. Nor are the OTs.

    I am sure they would be more than happy if they could just get on with direct dissemination of Scientology as they have done for so many years.

    But the truth is that this is being driven from the very highest echelons within the Scientology structure and clearly there is a lot of pressure to make targets that are being set.

    The IAS

    The IAS was created unbeknownst to LRH in 1984 by Marc Yager and David Miscavige.

    This was supposed to be based on LRH policies on the subject of membership and the HASI, however the IAS is nothing like the membership system described by LRH which only has two memberships and is covered in HCO PL 22 March 1965 "Current Promotion and Org Program Summary, Membership Rundown" and states:

    "There are two memberships." LRH

    LRH lists there the INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP and gives its cost at 10 pounds sterling or $30 US. He also lists a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP which is priced at $75 US. There are no other memberships or statuses approved or known to LRH.

    Furthermore, membership monies are supposed to go directly to the org where the membership is signed up, and the money used for dissemination by that org, in that area. This is covered in HCOPL 1 Sept 1965R Membership Policies.

    "It all goes into the HCO Book Account in the area where the membership is brought and is not part of the organization's weekly gross income. Membership monies go to dissemination." LRH

    Currently membership monies are held as Int reserves and have grown to well in excess of a billion dollars.

    Only a tiny fraction has ever been spent, in violation of the policy above.

    Only the interest earned from the holdings have been used very sparingly to fund projects through grants.

    In fact many of the activities you see at IAS events are not actually funded by the IAS, but rather by the Scientologists involved.

    Think about it, how many ads disseminating Scientology, Dianetics or any Scn affiliated programs have you seen on TV? Heard on the radio? Seen in newspapers? I haven't seen one in the 4 years I have lived in San Antonio, Texas, the 7th largest city in the US. How many have you seen?

    Donating anything more than a lifetime membership to the IAS is not based on LRH policy.

    The article "What Your Donations Buy" (The Auditor, The Monthly Journal of Scientology No. 51, 1970) is clearly talking about how the church uses your donations for Dianetics and Scientology services.

    Next time you are asked to donate outside of services, realize that you are engaged in fundraising and ask to see something in writing from L. Ron Hubbard that this is something he expects from you as a Scientologist.

    New Org Buildings

    LRH also never directed the purchase of opulent buildings or the posh renovations or furnishings for every org.

    In fact, if you read HCO PL 12 March 75 Issue II, "The Ideal Org", which is what this program has been called, and nowhere in it will you find 20 million dollar buildings or even any reference to the poshness of org premises at all as part of LRH's description of an "Ideal Org".

    Instead, an Ideal Org was one that delivered and moved people up The Bridge - something that is not part of this "Ideal Org" program.

    LRH says in the PL that an Ideal Org: "would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public" LRH. This is all it says about the state of the building.

    As a result of this off-policy alteration of the Ideal Org PL, we have the majority of top OTs, now deemed "OT Ambassadors", heavily engaged in fund-raising activities that include "bingo", "pirate dinners", "knitting classes", "hay rides", and many other activities strictly revolving around raising funds for the required multi-millions of dollars to fund their "Ideal Org".

    As part of this, people around every org are now asked to donate to their local "Ideal Org" instead of their own services or their own Bridge. LRH says in HCO PL Org Ethics and Tech:

    "GET RID OF DISTRACTIONS FROM SCIENTOLOGY in your org. Baby-sitting or raffle tickets and such nonsense."

    Yet these distractions are rampant as they are being used as fund-raisers to get money for the huge quotas being issued to fund the "Ideal Org".

    "If the org slumps, don't engage in 'fund-raising' or 'selling postcards' or borrowing money. Just make more income with Scientology.

    It's a sign of very poor management to seek extraordinary solutions for finance outside Scientology. It has always failed."

    "For orgs as for pcs, 'Solve It With Scientology'.

    "Every time I myself have sought to solve financial or personnel in other ways than Scientology I have lost out. So I can tell you from experience that org solvency lies in more Scientology, not patented combs or fund-raising barbeques." HCO PL 24 February 1964, Issue II, Org Programming, (OEC Vol. 7, p. 930)

    The point is that Scientologists and OT's need to be training, auditing and disseminating to raw public, not regging each other or holding internal fundraisers.

    Out Tech

    Over the last few years we have seen literally hundreds and hundreds of people who were validated as clear using the CCRD as developed by LRH now being told they are not Clear.

    This included hundreds of OTs who were then put onto NED as a "handling". LRH clearly forbid any Dianetics to be run on OTs in HCOB "Dianetics Forbidden on OTs".

    This is out tech.

    This entire technical "handling" was directed personally by COB RTC and was done on thousands of OTs.

    But it was based not on an LRH HCO Bulletin, but rather based on a single C/S instruction where LRH C/Sed one pre-OT who had not achieved the state of clear but was mid OT III and not making it.

    LRH directed a solo handling that the pre-OT was to do to get himself to achieve the state of Clear.

    This LRH C/S taken out of context was then used to implement a technical handling that was in direct violation of an LRH HCOB.

    This and other "technical handlings" done on Solo NOTs auditors created great expense and hardship on Solo NOTs auditors around the world as they were made to do these handlings to continue on the level.

    Then there are the "fast grades at Flag" that no other org has.

    How can it be that Flag has been delivering grades differently to the rest of the world for the last 3 years?

    Whatever the problem is, the fact is that having "fast Grades" at Flag creates a hidden data line and is a HIGH CRIME and the subject of an entire policy letter called "TECH DEGRADES" which LRH has placed at the start of every Scientology course.

    More recently the fad seems to be that nearly everyone needs to "re-do their Purif and do a long objectives program", including many OTs mid Solo NOTs.

    There is nothing wrong with doing objectives, but it is a clear violation of HCOB MIXING RUNDOWNS AND REPAIRS to have a person mid a rundown or OT level be taken off it and placed on an objectives program.

    Solo NOTs auditors are also being made to get their objectives from a Class IX auditor at great expense as they are not being allowed to co-audit.

    Flag has made many millions of dollars on the above listed out tech handlings because:

    OTs mid Solo NOTs are forced to get these out-tech actions to be able to get back onto and stay on the level and complete it. Not to mention the spiritual effects of the out tech that this has on each OT.

    I myself was subject to these out tech "handlings", including extensive FPRD mid Solo NOTs. It took its toll in many ways, including physical situations I am still dealing with today. So I have some reality of the hardship caused.

    LRH Command Structure

    LRH left us with a complex and balanced command structure, with our orgs led by the Office of ED International.

    This office was considered so important that LRH created a special management group called the Watch Dog Committee whose only purpose was to see that this office and the other needed layers of management existed.

    LRH ED 339R speaks of this extensively as the protection for our Church.

    But these people are missing.

    And not just some.

    As of just a few years ago there were no members of the office of ED Int on post, not to mention top execs throughout the International Management structure.

    You may have also wondered. where is Heber, the President of the Church?

    What about Ray Mitthoff, Senior C/S International, the one that LRH personally turned over the upper OT Levels to?

    How about Norman Starkey, LRH's Trustee?

    What happened to Guillaume, Executive Director International?

    And Marc Yeager, the WDC Chairman?

    What happened to the other International Management executives that you have seen at events over the years?

    The Truth

    Is that I spent weeks working in the empty International Management building at Int.

    Empty because everyone had been removed from post.

    When I first went up lines I was briefed extensively by David Miscavige about how bad all of them were and how they had done many things that were all very discreditable.

    This seemed to "explain" the fact that the entirety of the Watchdog Committee no longer existed.

    The entirety of the Executive Strata, which consisted of ED International and 11 other top International executives that were the top executives in their particular fields, no longer existed. That the Commodore's Messenger Org International no longer existed.

    All of these key command structures of Scientology International, put there by LRH, had been removed.

    There were hundreds and hundreds of unanswered letters and requests for help from org staff, written based on LRH ED 339R where LRH says that staff can write to these top executives in the Exec Strata for help.

    But this is not possible if all these execs have been removed and no one is there to help them or to get evaluations and programming done to expand Scientology.

    Well, after that I got to spend some quality time with Heber, Ray Mithoff, Norman Starkey, Guillaume, as well as the entirety of International Management at the time, who were all off post and doing very long and harsh ethics programs.

    These have gone on for years and to the only result of that they are still off post. There is no denying that these top executives have all gradually disappeared from the scene. You don't see them at the big events anymore or on the ship at Maiden Voyage.

    David Miscavige has now become the "leader" of the Scientology religion.

    Yet what LRH left behind was a huge structure to properly manage all aspects of the Scientology religion.

    He put a complete and brilliant organizational structure there, not one individual.

    There never was supposed to be a "leader" other than LRH himself as the goal maker for our group.

    There is a situation here and even if you have not been to the International Management Base you should be able to see that over regging and frequent tech changes are not OK and you have a responsibility to do something to Keep Scientology Working.

    You should be able to find and read the references on membership in OEC Volume 6. Find and read the HCO PL entitled "The Ideal Org" (Data Series 40).

    Find and read the references on org buildings, including HCO PL 24 Aug 65 II, Cleanliness of Quarters and Staff, Improve our Image. Also, HCO PL 17 June 69, The Org Image.

    If you don't want to make waves or put yourself in danger of being taken off the level or denied eligibility, then there are some simple things you can do:

    First and foremost

    Withdraw your support from off policy actions.

    Stop donating to anything other than your own services and actual Bridge progress.

    Simply demand to see an LRH reference that says you are required to make other such donations.

    No one will be able to produce any references because there aren't any.

    Stop supporting any of the activities that are being done to forward off-policy fund-raising in your area.

    LRH says what he expects of a Scientologist

    That is what he expects you to do. In fact he put it in HCOB 10 June 1960 Issue I, Keeping Scientology Working Series 33, WHAT WE EXPECT OF A SCIENTOLOGIST. Read it and follow it.

    The other thing you can do is to send this email to as many others as you can, even if you do it anonymously.

    Please keep this email among us, the Scientologists. The media have no place in this.

    You may wonder why I have not written a KR and gone about my business.

    The answer is, I have. But there is no longer anyone to send that KR to.

    But you can and should write reports and bring off-policy to the attention of local org executives and local Sea org members.

    We are a strong and powerful group and we can affect a change. We have weathered many storms. I am sorry that I am the one telling you, but a new storm is upon us. Its waves are already in the media and the world around us.

    The truth is that as a Scientologist you are more able, more perceptive and have a higher integrity. Scientology is supposed to make you "think for yourself" and never compromise your own integrity. And most certainly LRH held every Scientologist responsible to KEEP SCIENTOLOGY WORKING.

    I am not trying to do anything other than affect a change in serious off policy actions occurring. My husband and I have most of our family and many many good friends who are Scientologists.

    I have not been real interested in sticking my neck out like this. However, I also know that I dedicated my entire adult life to supporting LRH and the application of LRH technology and if I ever had to look LRH in the eye I wouldn't be able to say I did everything I could to Keep Scientology Working if I didn't do something about it now.

    We all have a stake in this. It is simply not possible to read the LRH references and not see the alterations and violations that are currently occurring.

    You have a very simple obligation to LRH. Don't participate in anything off policy, and let others know they should not either.

    If every person who reads this email does nothing more than step back from off-policy actions we would have changed direction.

    If we took all that energy and directed it into auditing, training and raw public dissemination, we would be winning.

    And that is what I wish for you and all of us as we ring in this new year.

    ARC,

    Debbie Cook

    Australian Senate not holding an inquiry into Scientology

    The International Freezone Association Inc welcomes the Australian Senate decision not to hold an inquiry into Scientology. Such an inquiry would eventually end up as a witch hunt and be a precedent for further 'inquiries' into other religions.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
    PR Log (Press Release) - Mar 11, 2010 - The International Freezone Association Inc welcomes the Australian Senate decision not to hold an inquiry into Scientology.

    Such an inquiry would eventually end up as a witch hunt and be a precedent for further 'inquiries' into other religions.

    The religion of Scientology is not in question. The activities of the current church are.

    The philosophy and religion of scientology is as far from the official church (consisting of the private nonprofit corporation called The Church of Spiritual Technology, the Religious Technology Center and the Church of Scientology International) as it is possible to be and still be on the same planet.

    When Hubbard was alive the church did indeed practice the philosophy of scientology and helped many people to become more aware as beings. The philosophy was promoted and people were welcomed into the church. Families and family life was encouraged and promoted and the cost of the services were reasonable.

    After his death, however, a new regime took over and all that changed. The emphasis turned to money to the exclusion of all else and a paranoiac obsession that anyone not with the church was against it. Church members were not allowed to look at the internet or anything the church management deemed contrary to church doctrine. Abuse of various kinds were, and to my understanding, still are, perpetrated against members still in the church. This is a classic case of violating the basic doctrines of the philosophy.

    Many of the original followers that assisted Hubbard with his research were booted out. Scripts and books were changed and a very effective 1984 job has been done on the literature and the basic services the church was originally set up to offer by the founder are now at a standstill.

    It is a misnomer to say that that the church practices scientology because it no longer does. The copyrights and the name, 'Scientology', maybe owned by the commercial organisation called the Church of Spiritual Technology, and licenced to the Church of Scientology International, but it is simply giving lip service to a philosophy no longer practiced. The church is now a commercial enterprise for making money, and reducing costs through the reduction of the rights of individuals members within the church through, violence, abuse, cheap labour, threats, and harassment. The threat against existing scientologists, staff and members within and without the church is the denial of one's future existence if one does not comply. Absolute nonsense of course as, like in most philosophies, one is regarded as a spiritual being. Nevertheless for those still held within the tightly regimented enclave it seems real enough. Practiced by the church also is harassment of scientologist who are no longer members of the church but who deem to practice the original philosophy. This includes legal as well as illegal harassment.

    Michael, President of the International Freezone Association Inc (IFA) stated, "The only scientology you will find practiced, these days, is outside the church, in the Independent Scientology Free zone where the basic principles are still adhered to and it is considered that man has spiritual freedom."

    He went on, "How many people actually know what scientology is? Not very many! They do not even know the basics of real scientology and many of the current critics do not differentiate between the original philosophy and the current incumbents activities, instead, simply lumping them all together." he said. "It is like saying that all Catholics or all Muslims are bad. Patent nonsense of course as all people are individuals and spiritual beings regardless of their beliefs."

    The media's rhetoric of, "it's bad", "Scientology kills people" or "scientologists eat babies" and other such generalised idiocies do nothing to explain what the philosophy of scientology is except dish out biased opinions. Ask people if they know what the ARC triangle represents, or what is a stable datum or what the eight dynamics are or that it is an applied philosophy and man is considered a spiritual being and they would not have a clue. Many get confused of course and cannot, or do not differentiate between the message and the messenger. In this case it is the messenger that has turned sour.

    The criticism of the church is very understandable. In the eyes of the freezone scientologist, the church has committed the unpardonable sin of abusing the original philosophy and, instead, imposed an authoritarian and criminal dictatorship totally at variance with the original philosophy.

    Nevertheless, the bald ignorant statements of, "they be all bad over there" is not a sound approach for adjudicating the merits or otherwise of any philosophy, whether practices by critics or church alike. Most of the original scientologists HAVE left the church in disgust or, as a result of abuse by the current management incumbents of the church, managed to 'escape.'

    Many of the members of the International Freezone Association Inc, a group of independent scientologists have personal stories of abuse and denial of the basic rights of scientologists in violation of the basic tenets, with the church.

    The philosophy has nothing to do with health or mental health any more than the Christian religion does. Calls by the Mental Health and its proponents for an investigation in to the philosophy are misguided at best and a wtich hunt at worse.

    Abuses and criminal conduct within the church is quite rightly a matter for law enforcement agencies, not health or government intervention.

    ABC Australia Four Corners Report on Scientology

    The ABC in Australia just showed a 'report' on scientology' Of course it recounted abuses etc but also it was still very biased and made no attempt to provide a balanced view or even give any information about the philosophy, honing in on the current abuses and lumping everything together in a typical a=a=a. (everything equals everything and there is no distinction between different aspects of the same subject)

    I posted a comment as follows:

    Dear Four Corners,

    I have just watched the report on Scientology shown tonight at 8.30 on ABC1.

    I was disappointed to say the least that Four Corners should show such a blatantly biased and incomplete portrayal of L. Ron Hubbard the philosophy he founded.

    I have no issue with the reporting of abuses that can be found within the church in its present state. Indeed many of the International Freezone Association Inc. have suffered such abuses and made these known.

    In addition, information regarding the Project rehabilitation Force is displayed on scientologistsfreezone.com for all to see. My objection is that not even a token attempt was made to show anything about the philosophy other than a vague and highly inaccurate reference to 'xenu', which has little to do with the scope of the philosophy.

    The philosophy is based upon a series of discoveries by Hubbard and not a 'self styled' religion as the reporter states. That is simply poor tabloid journalism set out to paint a picture and not provide factual data.

    In addition the church in its current state no longer practices the philosophy of scientology any more. In the same way it has abused many of its members, under the guidance of the currently chairman of the board, it has also abused the basic tenets of the philosophy as well.

    This means that this report is no better than the church at reporting facts and certainly not an accurate balanced presentation of any kind. I would have expected something better from Four Corners.

    In fact, the only place you will find the original philosophy of scientology is with the independent scientologists worldwide.

    New Scientology Freezone Newsletter

    The International Freezone Association inc (IFA). The independent group of scientologists who wish to practice the original philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard and not the church altered technology, have launched a newsletter free to the public.

    PR Log (Press Release) - Dec 28, 2009 - "The Monthly newsletter, called the FREE THETAN is designed to give people an idea of what the original philosophy of Hubbard was really about." Said Michael Moore, President of the IFA. "Unfortunately the church has altered the philosophy and violated its tenets so much so, that there is now virtually no actual scientology practiced in the church any more. It is really just scientology in name only these days. For the real stuff you have to go to the independent practitioners in the field." He went on.

    The FREE THETAN is a monthly newsletter freely available from the IFA website and contains news, information, success stories from the scientology freezone and some quotes by the founder of scientology, L. Ron Hubbard.

    The IFA is a free association of individuals, auditors and groups who believe they should be free to practice the original philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard.

    They believe that, since the death of the founder of the movement, the Church of Scientology has strayed from the original philosophy and purpose of the group which Hubbard first researched and developed.

    As the members of the IFA do not wish to participate in the practice of an altered philosophy they have elected to practice their chosen philosophy independently of the church.

    The IFA has a great number of members around the world and provides support and assistance to its members including a quarterly journal and technical assistance with the original philosophy and technology researched and developed by Hubbard.

    Australian Government Response to Letter to the Prime Minister

    Here is the Australian Governments response to the open letter sent to the Prime Minister.

    Australian PM response

    Letter from the office of the Australian Prime Minister


    Open Letter to the Australian Prime Minister

    The Hon Kevin Rudd MP
    Prime Minister
    Parliament House
    CANBERRA ACT 2600

    Dear Sir,

    The philosophy and religion of scientology is as far from the official church (consisting of the private nonprofit corporation called The Church of Spiritual Technology, the Religious Technology Center and the Church of Scientology International) as it is possible to be and still be on the same planet.

    When Hubbard was alive the church did indeed practice the philosophy of scientology and helped many people to become more aware as beings. The philosophy was promoted and people were welcomed into the church. Families and family life was encouraged and promoted and the cost of the services were reasonable.

    After his death, however, a new regime took over and all that changed. The emphasis turned to money to the exclusion of all else and a paranoiac obsession that anyone not with the church was against it. Church members were not allowed to look at the internet or anything the church management deemed contrary to church doctrine. Abuse of various kinds were, and to my understanding, still are, perpetrated against members still in the church. This is a classic case of violating the basic doctrines of the philosophy.

    Many of the original followers that assisted Hubbard with his research were booted out. Scripts and books were changed and a very effective 1984 job has been done on the literature and the basic services the church was originally set up to deliver by the founder are now at a standstill.

    It is a misnomer to say that that the church practices scientology because it no longer does. The copyrights and the name, 'Scientology', maybe owned by the commercial organisation called the Church of Spiritual Technology, but it is simply giving lip service to a philosophy no longer practiced. The church is now a commercial vehicle for making money, and reducing costs through the out and out suppression of individuals within the church through, violence, abuse, cheap labour, threats, and harassment. The threat against existing scientologists, staff and members within and without the church is the denial of one's future existence if one does not comply. Patent nonsense of course as, like in most philosophies, one is regarded as a spiritual being. Nevertheless for those still held within the tightly regimented enclave it seems real enough. Practiced by the church also is harassment of scientologist who are no longer members of the church but who deem to practice the original philosophy.

    This includes legal as well as illegal harassment.

    The only scientology you will find practiced, these days, is outside the church, in the Independent Scientology Free zone where the basic principles are still adhered to and it is considered that man has spiritual freedom.

    How many people actually know what scientology is? Not very many! They do not even know the basics of real scientology. many of the current critics do not differentiate between the original philosophy and the current incumbents activities, instead, simply lumping them all together.

    Of great concern is that the fellow in the street does not have a clue about what scientology is. All one gets is rhetoric and a diatribe of, "it's bad", "Scientology kills people" or "scientologists eat babies" and other such generalised idiocies. Ask people if they know what the ARC triangle represents, or what is a stable datum or what the eight dynamics are or that it is an applied philosophy and man is considered a spiritual being and they would not have a clue. Many get confused of course and cannot, or do not differentiate between the message and the messenger. In this case it is the messenger that has turned sour.

    The criticism of the church therefore is very understandable. In the eye of the freezone scientologist, the church has committed the unpardonable sin of suppressing the original philosophy and, instead, imposed an authoritarian and criminal dictatorship totally at variance with the original philosophy.

    Nevertheless, the bald ignorant statements of, "they be all bad over there" is not a sound approach for adjudicating the merits or otherwise of any philosophy, whether practices by critics or church alike. Most of the original scientologists HAVE left the church in disgust or, as a result of abuse by the current management incumbents of the church, managed to 'escape.'

    Many of the members of the International Freezone Association Inc, a group of independent scientologists have personal stories of abuse and denial of the basic rights of scientologists in violation of the basic tenets, with the church.

    Unfortunately the baby very often gets thrown out with the bath water in an indiscriminate vigilante style blanket decision and that is what concerns me here. If a bad hat took over a largely good organisation does one then destroy the whole organisation or does one seek out the bat hat and remove him from the organisation?

    I would humbly ask that you take that thought into consideration in any future deliberations.

    Independent Scientologists Stand Alone

    The independent freezone scientologists stand alone when it comes to the Church of Scientology.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    PRLog (Press Release) - Nov 05, 2009 - The independent freezone scientologists stand alone when it comes to the Church. "The French Courts decision concerning Scientology is all about the Church of Scientology's methods of recruitment and, not about the original philosophy." stated Michael Moore, President of the International Freezone Association Inc (IFA). A group of independent Scientologists who prefer to practice the original philosophy rather than the later expensive version offered by the church. "The original philosophy has gotten lost in all this, even by the church itself who now seem to practice something else, even in violation of the original tenets of the philosophy." he went on.

    The International Freezone Association (IFA) believe they should be free to practice the original philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard and believe that, since the death of the founder of the movement, the Church of Scientology has strayed from the original philosophy and purpose of the group which Hubbard first researched and developed.

    "We consider that it is this altered philosophy the church practices, in violation of the basic tenets of the original Scientology, that has contributed in no small measure to the church's downfall." Moore said.

    The IFA have experienced scientologists on their books who only practice the original philosophy. They have a certification process in place to ensure that their members only practice and use the original philosophy as distinct to the modern Johnny come lately altered versions practiced in the church today.

    There are also many other resources both for public and IFA members available from the 10 websites the IFA operate.

    Hearing on Intellectual Property and Copyrights

    The US Federal Trade Commission is going to hold a series of hearings, the first in Washington DC on Dec 5th 2008. This to examine IP law and the various issues surrounding it. It is expected that interested parties from the tech industry, including Cisco, Yahoo and the Computer & Communications Industry Association are expected to testify along with professors, lawyers and other industry players.

    It wishes to straighten out Intellectual Property (IP) and more clearly define the guidelines covering intellectual property. It will hold a series of hearings, the first in Washington, DC on Dec. 5th 2008, as a start to examine the various issues and criteria relating to this issue.

    The last time this was done was in 2002/2003, when 24 days of hearings that involved more than 300 panelists were involved. These included representatives from large and small business firms; the independent inventor community; patent and antitrust organizations; and the academic community in economics and antitrust and patent law provided input. In addition, the FTC said it received about 100 written submissions. Many of the business representatives were from technology-intensive industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, computer hardware and software, and the Internet. The final results were contained in a 207-page report that has guided the agency's ruling on IP since.

    According to the FTC, the hearing will consist of three panels. One that looks at the operation of emerging business models, aspects of the patent system that support those models, and industry responses. The discussion also will explore the implications these developing business models have for patent valuation and licensing. A second will examine recent and proposed changes in remedies law, including their impact on innovation and consumers, and their use of economic analysis in determining remedies. The third will look at legal doctrines that affect the value and licensing of patents, such as the recent Supreme Court cases on obviousness and other important rulings make the scope and enforcement of patents unpredictable, the FTC stated.

    This might not seem immediately apparent but this is a good opportunity for the Freezone to present its case concerning the freedom of religion and freedom of expression.

    Such points as:

    Churches should not hold a commercial monopoly on the name of a religion. E.g Church of Scientology holds a monopoly on the name Scientology. The other main religions do not hold a copyright on the word that represents or describes their religion. Some examples of this include:

    Christianity (All factions and beliefs)
    Islam
    Hinduism
    Chinese traditional religion
    Buddhism
    Sikhism
    Juche
    Spiritism
    Judaism
    Baha'i
    Jainism
    Shinto
    Cao Dai
    Zoroastrianism
    Tenrikyo:
    Rastafarianism:

    To name but a few.

    Commercial copyright law should clearly not infringe religion.

    Commercial copyright law should not be used as a preventative to practicing the religions.

    Intellectual property should not include religious principles or the ritual and practice of same.

    The spiritual welfare of man is not bound by intellectual property rights but by the beliefs of man.

    And the religious and philosophical tenets should not be the property of any one individual or church.

    The spiritual guidelines of a religion should not be bound by commercial rights.

    If you would care to make a submission, which you, as an individual have every right to do, then the FTC wants your comments. The more people that make submissions the more notice the FTC will take of the submissions and the more consideration they will give to them. It would be in our interests, to ensure that the philosophy of Scientology is open to all, that as many submissions as possible are made.

    All submission should be submitted to:

    http://www.ftc.gov/ftc/workshops.shtm

    And must be received by February 5, 2009, and should refer to "Evolving IP Marketplace - P093900."

    Professional Course Booklets

    dfolgere14.jpg

    The 14th in the D Folgere Professional Course Booklets has now been completed and uploaded to Gold Century Press. I spend a little time each day transcribing on these and hope to have at least one completed each month. So far I am in front of the target as started this a year ago and have now done the first 14 plus the last one (No 50).

    The Professional Course Booklets, also known as the 50 Course Booklets, were originally compiled and rewritten from transcripts of lectures given by Lafayette Ronald Hubbard during the Spring and Summer of 1952.

    The first 27 booklets parallel the 27 lectures of the Hubbard College Lecture Series given in Wichita in March 1952. Booklets 2E to 28 are taken from the Technique 80 Lectures of Phoenix, May 1952. The remaining 19 booklets are based on the Technique 88 Lectures of June 1952. Tapes of these lectures were supplemented by the booklets and together they formed the Professional Course.

    These "50 Course Books" carry forward all the basic technology Dianetics and Scientology, with particular emphasis on the material developed between January and December, 1952. They contained an enormous amount of material fundamental to an understanding of the mind, many with illustrations. They could be said to have comprised a study course in themselves, but were, at the same time, part and parcel of the Professional Course.

    They have been out of print for many years and have been generally unavailable. But now this vital information will be available from Gold Century Press, publishers to the scientologists Freezone, at a nominal cost in either soft copy or e-book format. These have been reformatted and errors corrected. All proceeds will be donated to the International Freezone Association.

    Note: These are lecture notes written by D Folgere and are not transcripts of Lafayette Ron Hubbard Taped lectures. Keep in mind that these were written by another. They are not source material. If you prefer to read only source material directly from Lafayete Ron Hubbard, it is strongly suggested you buy books written by L.Ron Hubbard and preferably those issued prior to 1982. There is no guarantee that books issued by the RTC after 1982 have not been altered or changed in text. See scientologistsfreezone.com for further information.

    Each one is about 12 to 14 pages and available in e-book format at 7.95USD for an e-book as well as soft copy.

    You can get your copy from Gold Century Press

    IFA AMNESTY

    In celebration of the first group, The Life Improvement Center, to be certified by the IFA as fully applying Lafayette Ron Hubbard Standard Technology, an Amnesty is issued in accordance with HCO PL 6th of March 1965 Justice Amnesty Policy.

    "AMNESTY: A general pardon for past offenses; the granting of such a pardon; a forgetting or intentional overlooking; the rendering of punishment null and void for offenses earlier than the amnesty date, known or unknown; forgiveness of past criminal or anti-social actions...."

    "An Amnesty is general in nature and when issued includes everyone."

    "Amnesty is clearly intended to cover only anti-social or anti-Scientology acts and is clearly not intended to cover debts, contracts or such agreements or obligations."

    All moderations on IFAChat will be removed. All Ethics Files cleared.

    David Miscaviage, The Religious Technology Center and the Church of Spritual Technology are not included within this amnesty as they intentionally operate outside the scope of agreement within the Freezone and the general public.

    "Offenses occurring after midnight of the release date of an amnesty are not covered by the amnesty."

    This Amnesty covers up to midnight 17th New York Time, USA.

    "The frequency of amnesties is determined solely by the frequency of new triumphs of significant general importance to Scientology. Help them happen."
    We look forward to seeing more groups become certified and encourage them to do so.

    President

    New Certified IFA Group

    Anita & Les At the LIC

    After some rigorous testing and inspection, the International Freezone Association (IFA), today was pleased to certify the Life Improvement Centre of Forest Hills, Tampa, Florida as fully qualified to deliver Lafayette Ron Hubbard Standard Technology.

    The Quality Control Officer of the IFA Mark stated, "I inspected their training in progress. I looked over the materials they were using for training and in counseling … I've inspected so I've seen that they can standardly provide all services they claim to deliver"

    The Life Improvement Center is owned and run by Anita and Les Warren In Forest Hills, Tampa, Florida. Their services include:

    Drug or Alcohol Rehab
    Life Repair
    Child/Parent Rehab
    Purification Program
    Free Testing, Evaluation
    Ministerial Services
    Improvement Zones
    Children & Teens
    Tutoring
    Relationships & Marriage
    Stress & Depression
    Illness & Injury
    Talent & Ability

    What is the IFA Certification System?

    The purpose of the certification process is to uphold and substantiate a specific standard of application and delivery of standard technology of the original working philosophy of Lafayette Ron Hubbard to the level attained by the individual as originally instituted by Lafayette Ron Hubbard.

    It was Ron himself who introduced the certification process in the form of certifications and oks to audit, issued by the Qual and approved by HCO and the Keeper of the Tech. These were not fanciful titles but in fact a recognition that the individual can and does apply the technology in the way Ron expected.

    The certification process will provide recognition for practitioners that their application of the technology is of a satisfactory standard, undeviating in its application and delivery so the results remain predictable and stable.

    This provides, for the clients of the practitioner, the knowledge that the practitioner is on source, knows and understands and can delivery the practical aspects of the original philosophy as outlined by Lafayette Ron Hubbard.

    "This certification is an assurance that the philosophy and technology of Lafayette Ron Hubbard is still practiced in the field if not in the church." Stated Michael Moore President of the IFA. "We have an increasing number of people accepting and applying the professional standards of delivery demanded by the public."

    The Church of Scientology™ Vs Scientology

    The philosophy and religion of scientology is as far from the official church (consisting of the private non profit company called Church of Spiritual Technology, the Religious Technology Center and the Church of Scientology International) as it is possible to get and still be on the same planet.

    When Hubbard was alive the church did indeed practice scientology and expanded and helped many people to become more aware as beings. The philosophy was promoted and people were welcomed into the church. Families and family life was promoted and the cost of the services were reasonable.

    After his death, however, a new regime took over and all that changed. The emphasis became money dedication to the exclusion of all else and a paranoiac obsession that anyone not with the church was against it. Church members were not allowed to look at the internet or anything the church management deemed contrary to church doctrine. A classic case of violating one of the basic doctrines of the philosophy.

    Many of the original followers that assisted Hubbard with his research were booted out. Scripts and books were changed and a very effective 1984 job has been done on the literature and auditing and training, the basic services the church was set up to deliver, is at a stand still.

    Even the wife of Hubbard, a tireless supporter, has become persona non gratis with the church.

    The philosophy of scientology is not practiced in the church. The church is now a vehicle for making money, not for "spreading the word". It is a misnomer to say that that the church practices scientology because it does not anymore. The only scientology you will find practiced, is outside the church, in the Scientology Freezone.

    Most of the current critics are critical of the church, not the philosophy, the basic principles of which they are probably unaware. Many get confused of course and cannot, or do not differentiate between the message and the messenger. In this case it is the messenger that has turned sour.

    But what is of concern is that many critics, and the fellow in the street does not have a clue about what scientology is. All one gets is rhetoric and a diatribe of, "its bad", "Scientology kills people" or "scientologists eat babies" and other such idiocies. No, the church may participate in dubious activities but certainly any self respecting scientologist will not as it goes against the very principles by which he or she subscribes. The bald ignorant statements of, "they be all bad over there" is not a sound approach for adjudicating the merits or otherwise of any philosophy, whether practices by critics or church alike.

    Ask people if they know what the ARC triangle represents, or what is a stable datum or what the eight dynamics are and they would not have a clue. How many people actually know what scientology is? Not very many! They do not even know the basics of real scientology.

    But their criticism of the church is very different kettle of fish, and very very understandable. In the eye of the freezone scientologist, the church has committed the unpardonable sin of suppressing the original philosophy and, instead, imposed an authoritarian dictatorship totally at variance with the original philosophy.

    So it comes as no surprise when the church gets attacked with such vehemence. It is a betrayal after trust. A failure to deliver what was promised. Indeed an active suppression of that which is supposed to be delivered.

    Unfortunately the baby often gets thrown out with the bath water and that is what is occurring here.

    By contrast, the International Freezone Association (IFA) is committed to keeping alive and practicing the original philosophy as researched and discovered by Hubbard. People participate and become members, supporting the IFA in its purposes of preserving, protecting and promotion the original philosophy.

    The International Freezone Association (IFA) is an independent scientology group consisting of scientologists who prefer to stick with the original philosophy and technology as researched and developed by Lafayette Ron Hubbard.

    The IFA has become an alternative for the seeker of truth and a second chance at freedom for the true scientologist. A safe haven for scientologists world wide. An alternative to the church that is scientology in name only and practices the original philosophy no more.

    There is no hidden agenda here and, although the church may own the trademark to the word scientology, they do not own the trade mark to the truth.

    Scientology 8-0 The Book of Basics

    scientology 0-8 analysis

    A critical analysis and comparison of the book "SCIENTOLOGY 0-8 The book of Basics, A critical analysis and comparison between the 1970 and 2007 versions" has been published this month. Authored by Andreas Grosz, Dipl.-Ing. and published by Gold Century Press, the book offers a detailed analysis of the changes found in the current issue of this boook of basics.

    The book is free for download and is available at:

    Scientologists Freezone website and at the Gold Century Press website.

    It is a recommended read for all scientologists alike.


    The Future of Scientology

    The Freezone seems to be entering an era reminiscent of the early days of Scientology and Dianetics.

    More and more people are finding their way to the Scientology Freezone.

    Some dissatisfied with the official church and seeking a viable alternative. Most new to scientology and curious about it.

    It seems the more attempts that are made to restrict the Freezone the larger it grows and the more presence it has. Each prod, each harassment, each attack seems to impel it to grow just that bit more. The datum, well known in scientology, that one gets what one resists comes to mind here.

    Each time Tom Cruise, or his family, features in the news, more people spring to the internet to find out, "What is this scientology?".

    Many find their way to the Freezone either through search engines, existing Freezone sites, groups or discussion lists.

    The Freezone is experiencing a growth with record enquiries to all the major groups.

    And there are many groups working towards a purpose of getting themselves and others up the bridge as to Clear and OT as fast as possible. Whereas it can take many many years and a considerable amount of money for those parishioners under the influence of the Church, many in the Freezone enjoy the rapidity of particle flow and move up the bridge in months according to the steady stream of of success stories.

    It also seems that now any remaining differences between the various groups is slowly being overshadowed by the overall purpose to preserve the philosophy and technology and use it to increase peoples personal spiritual awareness. The Freezone is collectively a group in it's own right, of scientologists who practice the applied working philosophy of Ron Hubbard and are not held down by the fixed idea of copyright and trademark being more important than the spiritual development of mankind. Instead, are free to pursue the road all the way to the top one way or another.

    The scientology freezone is truly the Free Zone of scientology.

    The Sea Organisation Executive Directive by Richard Reiss, The apparent Senior C/S Flag Service Org is about as off policy as one can get.

    Using threats of ethics to enforce an added inapplicable in the field to follow a policy that was originally only for Church auditors and, importantly, for ORG PCs is a wrong target and will continue to ARCX the field.

    The issue quoted is, HCO PL 8 March 1966 “HIGH CRIME”

    The quote is:

    "TOLERATING THE ABSENCE OF OR NOT INSISTING UPON STAR RATED CHECKOUTS ON ALL PROCESSES AND THEIR IMMEDIATE TECHNOLOGY AND ON RELATIVE POLICY LETTERS ON HGC INTERNS OR STAFF AUDITORS IN THE TECH DIV OR STAFF AUDITORS OR INTERNS IN THE QUAL DIV FOR THE LEVELS AND ACTIONS THEY WILL USE, BEFORE PERMITTING THEM TO AUDIT ORG PCS, AND ON SUPERVISORS IN TECH AND QUAL WHO INSTRUCT OR EXAMINE OR FAILING TO INSIST UPON THIS POLICY OR PREVENTING THIS POLICY FROM GOING INTO EFFECT OR MINIMIZING THE CHECKOUTS OR LISTS" - LRH

    This policy letter by LRH does not call for field auditors to be threatened with ethics if they do not apply this to the current wave of ALTERED BOOKS AND TECHNOLOGY being forcibly rammed down their throats.

    This smacks of totalitarianism at best and suppression at worse.

    The issue states, "Those field auditors who noncomply will be reported to I HELP (A misnomer in terms if ever I have heard one) and will be investigated as regards their technical application and for any other violations of their license agreements."

    The term, 'noncomply' is a covert way of changing an act of omission into an act of commission and is evidently being used to imply, in this case, that field auditors actively have counter intention.

    While it is probably a good idea to verify ones understanding of the basics of the philosophy, being forced to do so under threats, the implied accusation of being a criminal and possibility of being barred is the total opposite of what scientology stands for. This is likely to drive the auditor in the field away from the church and into the arms of the scientologists Freezone and I think we should prepare for an influx of disgruntled auditors!

    HCOPL 10 dec 1969 SUPERIOR SERVICE IMAGE says:

    "Its an old Maxim IF AUDITING IS OCCURRING IN THE FIELD ORGS WILL BOOM"

    "Its no real concern of ours to try to hold the field versions standard. They mess up pcs and students. They always will. A militant org attitude to keep the ~field~ straight is silly. Let them flub as you are trying to control something you cannot. "

    Makes one wonder if it is the intention to drive the field away and shrink the church even more. This seems to be yet another attempt to destroy scientology from within.

    The Sword of Damocles hangs over Miscavige poised waiting…..


    Once Upon a Time in Scientology

    Once upon a time, many years ago, the Church of Scientology used to be the place to go to study the Scientology philosophy. Thousands of people did so and became scientologists enjoying the benefits obtained from the original philosophy just as Ron Hubbard developed it.

    However, since the demise of Hubbard in the early 80s this is no longer the case. Times change and the church changed. New management has resulted in a different scientology being promoted. Alterations to the original philosophy developed by Hubbard have been documents and are easily seen by comparisons between the originally issued materials and the latest issues of the same materials.

    Nowadays, to get the original philosophy, you now have to go to independent scientology groups such as the International Freezone Association (IFA) for example.

    The IFA is a sort of protestant scientology group which prefers to stick with the philosophy as originally developed by Hubbard rather than the later 'updated' version currently followed by the Church.

    Often regarded as a splinter group by the church, the IFA and its members follow the original teachings of Hubbard based on the original philosophy which Hubbard researched and developed which was so successful in the period up to the early 80s to give to people the best possible way of improving their lives.

    The IFA operates outside of the church and has a list of members who are practitioners of the original philosophy. "We believe that the church has deteriorated since the demise of the Founder, and has taken to practicing a radically altered version of the original philosophy resulting in a more dissatisfied public and poor public relations." said Michael, President of the IFA. "As a result there is now a niche for the person wishing to get back to basics and study the original philosophy and the IFA is here to fill that niche." He said. "We are only interested in, what is known in scientology circles as, standard technology, which basically means the 'original applied working philosophy' just as Hubbard developed it."

    "There are two distinct scientologies now" he went on. "The Church of Scientology and the International Freezone Association".

    The IFA has a website at http://internationalfreezone.net from which further information may be obtained about the original philosophy of scientology.

    Top Ex-Scientologist Found Dead

    Press Release: International Freezone Association 1st June 2007

    Top Ex-Scientologist Found Dead

    Ken Ogger, a long time scientologist was found dead in his swimming pool three days ago.

    According to Ogger's girlfriend, "He was found dead today, on May 29, in the pool of his house. When the police took his body out, his hands were tied with a wire, and a heavy concrete thing attached to his feet. We were supposed to have a date on Monday night. Monday was a Memorial Day in America. He didn't come. He had never broke dates, and in case of any changes he always warned me. I couldn't reach him on the phone, and eventually drove to his place. His mother opened the door. It turned out she had no idea where he was. His car was there, so we assumed that somebody picked him up. But what worried us most -- no calls from him. The phone in his house was broken, but he never called me either. It was last night, on May 28, Monday, the Memorial Day. Today when I came to Ken's mother, she said at the door: "He is dead in the pool"."

    Ogger had been what is known as an old time scientologist from the early days and was well versed in the philosophy. He wrote a number of works about the philosophy and its application. He had also been an outspoken critic of the new Church of Scientology regime since the demise of the Founder of the church and had been, according to posts he placed on the internet, subject to continual harassment by the Churches infamous Dept of Special Affairs (OSA).

    The Church of Scientology is perhaps the most litigious in the world not hesitating to sue at the drop of a hat. OSA, their secret security 'arm' continues to harass ex-scientologists (known as Scientology Freezoners) around the world in an attempt to prevent them from practicing their religion despite, at the same time, crying wolf and protesting freedom of religion around the world.

    Recently, continually provoking of a BBS Panorama TV Crew resulted in a screaming match observed around the world.

    An Autopsy is due to be performed, meanwhile tributes continue to flowing in around the world for Ken Ogger from scientologists in the Scientology Freezone.
