Where somebody does not study Scientology there is no Scientology.
What we see applied today in the Church of $,
is an altered technology taught
by the High Priests of the Organization
which, deceptively, they call Scientology.
This is the reason trained people and people who have gotten
the true basics and tenets of LRH’s philosophy
are disliked and attacked.
When there is no real awareness of others,
where there is no clue of what the laws or the rules are,
there cannot be justice.
What is done to others does not touch us or seem unreal.
But a true, strong and powerful group, a true family
does not allow suppression to any of his members
without fighting back.
Many times we would wish somebody
would stand up for us when we get hit,
but then, when is our turn to handle suppression for another
we sit quietly and decide that we do not want the troubles
and after all it might be better for us
to keep everything quiet and maintain our status quo.
And we therefore go out of integrity
and communication with others.
We have an apparency of a group…
which will blow away at the first whiff.
Desire to punish and justice do not go together.
We see in Justice a way to indicate the correct item,
which brings as-isness and ends the cycle.
(Originally written by LRH for the Apollo OODs of 17 May 71, Issued as an HCO PL on 4 Aug. 80.)
In matters of justice we do have the responsibility of seeing
that fair play exists and that “justice”
is not used as oppression.
Along with this comes the responsibility
of not operating on isolated reports.
Almost all injustice stems from operating
on unsubstantiated reports.
Honest stats are far more reliable.
Injustice and false reports go hand in hand.
The activity called “black propaganda”
consists of spreading lies by hidden sources.
It inevitably results in injustices being done
by those who operate without verifying the truth.
But injustice recoils on those who deal in it.
…When those in charge are directly attacked,
they have to resort to defense in order to control the situation.
That they so act to defend can itself be used to undermine.
Once more it is vital for executives and organizations
to act only on information that is fully verified.
And when they do act it should be with due attention
to the full formalities of justice.
To make the problem worse,
the omission of enforcing truth and justice
can damage many
and can be itself a severe overt.
The road out is the Road to Truth.
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 17 MAY 1971 by L. RON HUBBARD
ITS USE AND PURPOSE
“The reason we have Justice Codes is to have justice.
We don’t want or need injustice.
We have had too much caprice passing for justice.
It is time we had justice.
Committees of Evidence work.
I recall one Tech Director accused of tampering with a student.
I was told he was about to be disciplined and sacked.
I stopped that action and had a Committee of Evidence convened. Accurate testimony revealed the story false
and the Tech Director innocent.
Without that committee, he would have been ruined.
I know of other instances where a committee
found the facts completely contrary to rumor.
Some are guilty, most are innocent.
If a person is to keep the law,
he or she must know what the law is.
And must be protected from viciousness and caprice
in the name of law.
If a person doesn’t keep the law, knowing well what it is,
he or she hurts all of us and should be handled.
That power must not be lawless or we will have anarchy
and dismay, enough to stop our growth.
Where we fail to apply our own administration,
technology and justice procedures to the society around us
(let alone Scientology), we will fail.
Therefore, let us have justice and expand into higher order,
not plunge the world into darkness because our power
as a group struck innocent and guilty alike.
Already the following points need correction
in the uninformed person concerning our justice.
Our justice really rehabilitates in the long run.
It only disciplines those who are hurting others
and gives them a way to change so they can eventually
win too-but not by hurting us.
A Scientologist who fails to use Scientology technology
and its administrative and justice procedures
on the world around him will continue
to be too enturbulated to do his job.
That sounds extreme to anyone.
But if you look it over, you will find that the “power”
of the “society” and “state”
is pretended and is made from an effort to be powerful
where they actually lack power.
Our situation is quite the reverse.
Ours is the power of truth
and we are capable of power as a group,
having power as individuals due to processing
and power of wisdom due to superior technology.
Therefore, when we grant too much beingness
to their “power,” we are granting validity
to a falsehood and so it recoils on us.
We are, in short, knocking our own heads off
by failing to use our knowledge and authority
when we administer or handle our fellow man or society.
It’s like refusing auditing to somebody
or not making it possible.
It’s also investing a lie with power.
Society is losing ground because its “power”
is based on a pack of falsehoods.
We will lose ground if we empower those lies.
There’s real magic to be seen here.
For instance, every upset we have is traceable
to our not knowing or failing to apply our technology
and admin and justice procedures
to the society around us
and its individuals, firms and groups.
No matter how mad it sounds, we only fail when we don’t.
And therefore every Scientologist should understand
his own tech, codes and procedures.
…Don’t react to Scientology justice as though it were wog law.
And use it.
That’s the main lesson.
If we don’t use it in all questions
where the truth of the matter is in doubt,
we’ll just go on being wogs.
So let’s grow up to our own technology
and take responsibility for it.
And wear our hats as Scientologists to the world.
L. RON HUBBARD
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 27 MARCH 1965
I would say:
“And wear our hats as sane, honest people to the world.”
In the “Divina Commedia” by Dante Alighieri,
Virgilio was placed in purgatory.
I think after all that is the best place.
You are not in heaven, you are not in hell,
you are in the between of evil and good,
you trying to be good but you are aware you can err.
So, there is a continue effort and search of truth…
When you find truth and you think you own it, you lose it.
Truth is not a datum or a status,
it is a continue humble search,
it requires confront, love and patient
and the awareness we might not-know.
we are here to help!!
