Scientologists like to talk about their objective of a "cleared planet" but no one seems to really know what that means. A reporter told me that he had asked an OSA PR and was told it meant "a world without war or insanity, where honest men..." Nay, nay, I told him, let's get rid of the platitudes and get down to the nitty-gritty. Let's find out what L. Ron Hubbard REALLY wanted to achieve on the planet.
And so I read him the "Targets" section of HCOPL 16 Feb 69, Issue IV, "CONFIDENTIAL - Targets, Defense," which is part of every OSA hat pack, meaning every person in OSA has read this MANY times. (The rank and file have NOT seen this policy letter. It is NOT in the green volumes. They all mouth the "World without war..." sugar-coated version.)
The PL is three pages and contains LRH's "analysis" of "errors" that were made in dealing with the "enemy." E.g., "Not learning enemy tactics and using and bettering them." (Whoops! He couldn't have meant THAT, could he?)
Yes, friends, he said it and he meant it, so the next time you read one of those policy letters where LRH talks about "Black PR" and other juicy "enemy tactics," and the Scientologist says, "Oh, that's so we know the tactics of the enemy. We don't do THAT!" (Said with a Warren "What OT3 Secret?" McShane straight face.) all you have to do is read them this part of Source. (Don't worry about convincing them. You can't.)
There are nine of those "errors" and then he goes into what must be DONE. Here they are with his introductory line:
Start LRH quote per fair usage (with my comments in brackets):
LRH: The vital targets on which we must invest most of our time are:
T1. Depopularizing the enemy to a point of total obliteration. [Remember, this is a "religion," using tax free money in the US.]
T2. Taking over the control or allegiance of the heads or propriorters of all news media. [Note the sequence here re importances to LRH. All are worked on but some are higher priorities. Again, all tax-free.]
T3. Taking over the control or allegiance of key political figures. [And some wonder why Germany is concerned?]
T4. Taking over the control or allegiance of those who monitor international finance and shifting them to a less precarious finance standard. [Wonder what LRH would have recommended as the alternate?}
T5. Generally revitalizing the societies in which we are operating. [The way they have in downtown Clearwater.]
T6. Winning overwhelming public support. [The way they have on the Internet.]
T7. Use all other similar groups as allies. [Scientology wants to be your friend. Trust them.] - end LRH quote.
And THAT might give one a better idea what a "Clear Planet" would look like to L. Ron Hubbard: No opposition or criticism. Control of all media and governments. And that is just for starters.
Anyone who wants a copy should just ask the local OSA. They have LOTS of copies! (No, they are NOT in the green volumes. Surprise!)
