Thank you very much Martin Ottman for posting these Scientology Suppressive Person Declares and other articles from the Church!
They are extremely instructive.
They show how little regard Scientology management has had for the official policies of Scientology. The following policy has been violated in every one of these declares. It is Hubbard Communications Office Policy of 2 June 1965 entitled: "Writing of an Ethics Order." It is in the new green volumes, volume 1, page 967. It states:
"When writing an Ethics Order, don't ARC break its readers by leaving out the data.
"Don't create a mystery. Example of Wrong phrasing: 'Woody McPheeters is declared a Suppressive Person. He stopped a student from coming on course." That leaves out all the data. Leaves questions -- Where did it happen? Is it in our area? What did he do? Who did he do it to? What's the evidence? Correct Example: "WOODY McPHEETERS in Baltimore, USA is declared a Suppressive Person. On (date) he discouraged Fred Fairchild from taking the St. Hill Course by writing to him lies about the course, well known by said McPheeters to be false statements. Evidence: Letter from McPheeters dated ____ to ____ now available in Ethics Files. Charge: Suppression of a Scientologist and barring his way to Release and Clear. Findings by former evidence of course record and this: Suppressive Person. All Certs, etc.'
"Don't be unspecific or you leave people in huge mystery..."
"Always put in what you know, nothing you don't know, and only what you have evidence or witnesses for. Ethics Orders are issued on real data, not opinion..."
"If you are frightened of civil suits because of an Ethics Order, just remember to issue them only when you have the evidence..."
This policy concludes with the following statement:
"Write a nice informative Ethics Order. Don't leave anyone in mystery. Mysteries cause trouble and the purpose of Ethics is PEACE IN WHICH WE CAN GET IN TECHNOLOGY."
