LRH disavows Disconnection — in 1969!

A long-time reader of this blog located this letter in some files in the Australia-New Zealand area of the world.

You might recall that LRH was speaking about and doing things about reforming Scientology’s image in the 1968-1969 timeframe

As a result of this discovery:

(1)      Karin Pouw will have to take a stand — one way or another — on the Disconnection issue. Either she’ll have to admit LRH didn’t want parishioners of Scientology to be disconnected-from in a willy-nilly fashion and admit that parishioners have been “briefed” to disconnect from people the church arbitrarily and capriciously declared “suppressive”….or….she’ll have to say LRH was a big ol’ fat liar to the New Zealand Commission of Enquiry into Scientology.

(2)      Karin Pouw will have to make a public statement that Tommy Davis was in fact telling the truth when telling Anderson Cooper that Disconnection had been cancelled and that an official document will be forthcoming from the church proclaiming that the blanket “disconnection” from any disaffected Scientologists is cancelled.

(3)      Family members, associates, and friends of “declared persons” will print out this letter and carry a copy in their wallet to show any Ethics Officer who wants to cram Disconnection down the throat of any non-PTS parishioner.

Way to go!! The Truth eventually all comes out. :-)

Well I’ll be. Yet another bolt from the blue, this one deserving wide dissemination.

Hmmm. I wonder if Bryan Seymour can make any hay with this? I should ask him.

I just finished reading “Addicted To Scientology.” Fabulous book. It’s a guy’s story of how he tried to get up the Bridge. Having spent $600,000 he finally got up through Grade IV… having been regged to death and Sec Checked until he was comatose. He was not in the Sea Org… so he doesn’t have those horror stories… just the horror story of a regular person loving the tech and doing their best to get up the Bridge in the current Scientology Inc. It’s a revealing expose of how the current Church has deteriorated into stops and obstacles to keep people from getting up the Bridge… while at the same time fleecing them.

I’m glad I read it. I didn’t feel quite so stupid for being sucked in for so long.

Awesome. This needs to be spread far and wide!

Perhaps the church will call this a forgery?

Of course they will. But I’m counting on the government officials and reporters in Australie and New Zealand to dig up the original in preparation for showing OSA’s duplicity.

The best thing they can do is SAY NOTHING.

Historically, we know that if Scientology Inc starts saying things about the veracity of this letter, it’ll be the first sign that it’s genuine.

I really liked your link to RJ68. I don’t believe I’ve ever heard that before.
The new years event of 1968/69, is a good bit different than a miscavage event. Lots of validation to individuals. Also real stats like 1,000 clears made, 13 new orgs opened. Very theta!

The letter by L. Ron Hubbard is not as simple as it seems at first, as is clearly explained here:

The problem is in how do we define who is an SP.

Radical Scientology conveniently defines “SP” as someone who has counter intention to them.

DM invents squirrel tech/policy and declares “SP” anyone who openly opposes him.

I’ve studied what LRH says about SPs and agree-if the person in question really is an SP.

If an “SP” equals “criminal” as a definition then society has applied disconnection for a long time.
Criminals go to jail. Most countries have death penalties. Judges can take children out of abusive homes. Martha Stout who has a Ph.D in psychology wrote a great book called “The Sociopath Next Door”,where she urges readers to disconnect from sociopaths.

LRH also said in the Way To Happiness “don’t do anything illegal”, which further cancels fairgame.

Therefore, when a Scientologist deals with a real SP in their lives, they either handle or disconnect, but it must be done within the rule of law and of the Scientologist’s own volition.
