Since some of the materials which describe the $cientology cult could be
considered to be copywritten materials, I have censored myself and The
Skeptic Tank by deleting any and all possible text files which describes
the cult's hidden mythologies. I have elected to quote just a bit of the
questionable text according to the "Fair Use" legal findings afforded to
those who report. - Fredric L. Rice, The Skeptic Tank, 09/Sep/95

Woody admits as has been shown elsewhere that the COS is failing and
is shrinking.... The inquisition is on the run....
"The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid,
and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of
its founder. The evidence portrays a man who has been
virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history,
background, and achievements. The writings and documents
in evidence additionally reflect his egoism, greed,
avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and
aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be
disloyal or hostile."
From the judgement of Judge Paul G. Breckenridge in the
Armstrong case, 1984.
Before going over the specific past and ongoing examples
of Scientology's true actions and policies toward its
adversaries it is necessary to cover a brief overview of
the four overriding strategies that appear in greater or
lesser degrees in and behind all Scientology actions
directed at its enemies. The best way to understand them
is to directly to the source of these action directing
and demanding policies. From the writings of L. Ron
"The purpose of a lawsuit is to harass and discourage
rather than to win....Don't ever defend. Always attack.
Find or manufacture enough threat against them to cause
them to sue for peace. Originate a black PR campaign to
destroy the person's repute and to discredit them so
thoroughly they will be ostracized. Be alert to sue for
slander at the slightest chance so as to discourage the
public presses from mentioning Scientology."
"It is my specific intention that by the use of
professional PR [black PR) tactics any opposition not
only be dulled but permanently iradicated." From a
confidential Board Policy Letter of 30 may 1974 Handling
Hostile Agents/Dead Agenting.
"Threat and mystery are the lot of intelligence." From
HCO Policy Letter of 11 May 1971.
"NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology. ONLY
agree to investigate the attackers....This is the correct
procedure: (1) Spot who is attacking us. (2) Start
investigating them for FELONIES or worse, using our own
professionals, not outside agencies. (3) Double curve
our reply by saying we welcome an investigation of them.
(4) Start feeding lurid, blood, sex, crime actual
evidence on the attackers to the press....Don't ever
submit tamely to an investigation of us. Make it rough
on the attackers all the way....You can get "reasonable
about it" and lose .... so BANISH all ideas that any
fair hearing is intended and start our attack with their
first breath. Never wait. Never talk about us -- only
them. Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines.
Don't use us." From HCO policy letter of 25 Feb. 1966,
"Attacks on Scientology."
Scientology has put these and its famous "fair game"
policies into action throughout its history to remove any
obstacles to its advancement.
"An enemy, "[they] may be deprived of property or injured
by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline
of the Scientologist...may be tricked, sued, lied to, or
destroyed." From the words of L. Ron Hubbard in HCO
policy letter of 18 October 1967, known as the "Fair Game
