Xenu-giving: We check the crowd at Scientology’s biggest org on a day of thanks

[Phil and Willie Jones]

It was a nice Saturday afternoon so Willie and I decided to take a little drive in the country. We thought we’d swing by the Cambridge Org and see how things were going for their Canadian Thanksgiving Dinner/Event.



The Thanksgiving dinner started at 6pm. We stayed until well after that to make sure we allowed for any stragglers. There were a few so we counted those as well. Altogether there were 27 cars in the parking lot. Most of them that we saw arrive had only one person in them, but there were some with two people. I’d estimate maybe 50 people, including staff. No more than 55-60 if I was being generous.


[We put together Phil’s two shots of the parking lot to show the full scene]

Even if most local Scientologists also had a dinner planned for Sunday or Monday they could have made it out to support their ‘church’ on a Saturday evening.

For the Premier Ideal Org for Canada, and the largest in the country, with that huge building and large parking lot it seemed pretty meager. I thought an Ideal Org was supposed to have 100-200 staff, plus thousands of public. Ah well, shrinkage within Scientology, especially in Canada, is becoming more and more evident.

Scientology’s front groups and their goal

Yesterday, one of our readers dug into the archives to find a great Scientology document about avoiding legal service. That files search also yielded this gem, from 1987, laying out in very plain language the purpose of Scientology’s various education and drug rehab front groups.

This is in reference to the “social coordination” fronts, like Narconon, Criminon, and Applied Scholastic. But it also applies to Scientology’s more subtle front operations like the Foundation for a Drug-Free World and Youth for Human Rights. The point, as always, is to spread L. Ron Hubbard’s “technology” and take over the world.




SOCO INT ED 19 16th April 1987






The only reason LRH(tm) founded the network of SOCIAL COORDINATION was to directly get the technologies of Education, Drug Rehabilitation and the rehabilitation of criminals into wide use in the society and arrest the decline of the society, caused by a few people who introduced unworkable technology.

This then also gives the only reason you are there, which is TO SELL LRH’s TECH TO THE SOCIETY AND GET IT USED, as THE TECH to handle criminality, Drug Rehabilitation and Education.

In a time of great social unrest, where drug use is at its peak, where the crime rate is consistently increasing, where children and adults are frantic about faulty education, there is one STABLE DATUM in all this: LRH’s TECHNOLOGY.


Unless a SOCO group concentrates on getting LRH’s Tech out into the society, replacing unworkable tech, it will have a hard time. Getting this done by all SOCO groups is the prime interest of SOCO INT, to get the TECH into the society. There are various sales points to accomplish this: Sales to States, to Institutions, to individuals, to businesses etc.

Every post on an org board has a role in accomplishing this.

Anyone who backs this up and does it is totally safe on post and will be backed up.

Anyone found not actively supporting or doing this will receive no mercy.

The stats of posts and groups directly measure whether this is being done. And, if a group’s stats are up it is direct proof that its execs and staff are oriented in getting LRHs tech out and used, and if they are down, it proves they are not.

Any idea that a SOCO group is there for any other reason than getting LRH’s tech out to society and replacing the unworkable tech that has been introduced, must be cast aside.

You do have the policies on how to go about this. You definitely have the public demand. Who wants a drugged, criminal or stupid society except suppressives.

In the teeth of the forces who work to destroy western civilisation, you will get nowhere until you begin to work as subversives of the planned subversion.

The whole fields of law enforcement, drug handling and education aren’t going bad through stupidity.

We can handle it, insanity, drugs. To not sell the functions is to deny the world the tech.



If you find that your post actions are not fully aligned to this, no matter what the post, and your post stats will tell the story, then you must change your operating basis, so that your post fully aligns with selling LRH’s tech to the society and getting it used as the tech to handle crime and drug rehabilitation and education.

Realize, that anyone who is trying to confuse you, by telling you to do other things which do not align with the above stable datum, is factually suppressing the mission we are on to accomplish, and is playing into the hands of the subverters of the fields of education, crime and drug handling.


By actually sticking to the above stable datum, we will accomplish a total revolution in the fields of drugs, crime and education, and get LRH’s tech used as THE tech to handle the above fields.

What you need to do is very simple: you must do the functions of your post as laid out in LRH policy to the end result of selling LRH’s tech to the society and getting it used as THE tech, and you must demand that the other staff in your group or organization do the same, so that maximum forward progress can be achieved.

And by doing this we can’t help but make LRH’s Tech the only tech being used in the handling of drugs, crime and education, with all the unworkable tech out of use, including those that introduced it.

This will bring us forward to a civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights and where Man is free to rise to greater heights.

“Why do people get so upset with a toothache, and why do they have this big nerve? The reason is that this happened again and again and again, and every time this happened, the theta facsimile would be used for new design. The things that appeared around the lips of these shells evidently appeared on the top side first, because there was more shelter, and then they appeared on the bottom lip. Every time these things would get disrupted they would say, ‘Next time we have got to have a tougher outer skin!’ And the next time they would make one, but in the meantime they got this sand — engram after engram after engram. Somewhere along the line you occasionally find a worm boring in there. Dentists are actually in the valence of these worms!” — L. Ron Hubbard, October 15, 1951


Overheard in the FreeZone

“I cared for my father in the last few years of his life in that body. The next day, he left the body. As I stood next to his bedside holding his hand, he let out the last breath. The nurses and doctor left. I was there alone with him and was aware of his presence, just outside of his body, dreaming as he was in his sleep moments before the body died. I communicated with him and let him know the body was finished. ‘Oh you and your Scientology’ he scoffed, communicating telepathically, but as clear as if he was using the body’s voice.”


Random Howdy

“Scientology may be circling the drain but there’s no shortage of crazy waiting in the wings. It’s going to be a long uphill battle to get to the top and stop the billions of minds waiting in line to go down that slippery slope called ‘magical thinking’.”
