Targeting the Masses.

An excellent paper written by Stephen Kent about Scientology strategies for the taking over of both people and countries.

Resource acquisition efforts towards political elites for international purposes

The public position of Hubbard and Scientology regarding politics is that his movement is "non-political in nature.... We seek no revolution. We seek only evolution to higher states of being for the individual and for Society" (Hubbard, 1965; see PAB 62 [30 September 1955] in Tech II: 268). Hubbard's assertion, however, that Scientology is a non-political enterprise is not supported by his own actions and organizational directives, including documented instances when he attempted to establish himself and his ideology among the political (and sometimes military) elites of various nations. In August, 1960, for example, Hubbard attempted to establish a Department of Government Affairs within the Scientology organization, and the object and goal of the Department was overtly political:
The object of the Department is to broaden the impact of Scientology upon governments and other organizations and is to conduct itself so as to make the name and repute of Scientology better and more forceful. Therefore defensive tactics are frowned upon in the department.... Only attacks resolve threats (HCO Policy Letter 15 August 1960 in Hubbard, 1972, OEC 7: 484).
More directly political were his comments six paragraphs later:
The goal of the Department is to bring the government and hostile philosophies or societies into a state of complete compliance with the goals of Scientology. This is done by a high level ability to control and in its absence by low level ability to overwhelm. Introvert such agencies. Control such agencies. Scientology is the only game on Earth where everybody wins (HCO Policy Letter 15 August 1960 in Hubbard, 1972, OEC 7: 484).
Apparently the Department of Government Affairs only existed on paper (Miller, 1987: 241), even though the organization reprinted the bulletin in its collection of organizational directives over a decade after he first wrote it. Probably Scientology reprinted the policy because these functions had been assumed by the Guardian Office {8} and, later, the Office of Special Affairs {9}.
Aside from his encouragement to US franchise holders in 1960 that they work against Richard Nixon's presidential bid (Miller, 1987: 240-241), Hubbard explained to his followers how, Jesuit-like, they could exert political influence. "Don't bother to get elected. Get a job on the secretarial staff or the bodyguard, use any talent one has to get a place close in, go to work on the environment and make it function better" (HCO 23 June AD 10 (1960) in HCOB 6:239; see Miller, 1987: 241).

Following the spirit of his own advice, Scientology briefly made inroads into the Moroccan government through a program intended to produce greater efficiency in the country's post office (Atack, 1990: 203; Miller, 1987: 311). The program, however, failed, but the group's training exercise for senior police officers and intelligence agents may have been more successful. This exercise showed officials how to use Scientology's E-meter as a detection tool against political subversives (Miller, 1987: 311). Ironically, a Scientologist already had demonstrated the E-meter's potential to an army officer who soon after borrowing the device committed suicide after leading a failed coup (Miller, 1987: 311) {10}. These attempts at gaining influence among Moroccan officials during late 1972 suggest that Hubbard wanted to find "a friendly little country where Scientology would be allowed to prosper (not to say take over control)" (Miller, 1987: 310).

His desire for such a country dated back at least to 1959, at which time he hoped that the Australian Labour Party and trades union movement would have adopted Scientology techniques and with them won the next election. Hubbard had hoped that such a win would have created "a favourable climate for the development of the church and neutraliz[ed] the unabated hostility of the Australian media" (Miller, 1987: 236). In 1966 he tried to influence Rhodesian politics by producing, "uninvited, a 'tentative constitution" for that country while attempting to "ingratiate himself with the leading political figures" of the country (Miller, 1987: 258).In that constitutional proposal Hubbard required that all voters ("electors" as he called them) had to have "[a] good standard of literacy in English" (Hubbard, 1966: [3]), and it may have been that he saw this literacy requirement as an opportunity to have Scientology form the basis of the emerging country's educational system {11}. In any case, he was expelled from the country in July, 1966.

Two years earlier, Hubbard had revealed revealed his desire to gain control over an jurisdictional area. To readers (mostly Scientologists) he elaborated plans to ensure world peace by building an international city to which all "heads of government, congresses, and parliaments" would move (Hubbard, 1964: 4). Amidst directives pertaining to an array of issues (i.e., the city's armed forces, government, extradition powers, finances, etc.), Hubbard stated that "the United Nations and national governments [must be persuaded] that they have no interest in matters of healing or welfare and may not legislate for or against them, nor assist to create health monopolies..." (Hubbard, 1964: 7). Moreover, "[t]he United Nations should not be permitted to define or outline 'orthodox science' or introduce any idea of orthodoxy into any science or the humanities except government" (Hubbard, 1964: 10). Along these same lines, "nor should the United Nations or National Governments be permitted to require the indoctrination in any way of the citizens of states or countries, nor pronounce upon their mental fitness or lack of it" (Hubbard, 1964: 11). At the very least Hubbard wanted a major geographical locale where Scientology would have equal footing with traditional forms of mental health. The project remained mythical, but the mere title of the scheme (Scientology: Plan for World Peace) suggested Hubbard's desire to gain control over a governmental area in order to allow the unbriddled practice of his ideology within it. As the supposed editor of the booklet proclaimed about "L. Ron Hubbard, Ph.D." [sic] and his proposal, "[t]his Plan for World Peace was foreshadowed in Dr.[sic] Hubbard's famous books Dianetics, the Modern Sceince of Mental Health (1950) and Science of Survival" (Hubbard, 1964: 3).

On the lovely Greek island of Corfu, Hubbard almost saw his mythical dream come true (Forte 1981). Docking his ships there in September, 1968, Hubbard quickly endeared himself and his Sea Org to the shopkeepers by infusing the local merchants and traders with about a L1,000 per day in purchases for his flotilla. Perhaps through the merchants he gained favour with the local newspapers, and through newspaper interviews he attempted to ingratiate himself with the ruling Greek junta ( Forte, 1981: 19, 21, 37). Through some useful introductions that the National Tourist Organization made for a Scientology public relations team among members of Corfu's social elite, Scientologists entered the island's high society. Hubbard himself made a red carpet entrance into a local casino that was housed in a palace, and the next day he rechristened his ships with Greek names and threw a lavish party for his Corfu admirers (Forte, 1981: 21-27). By early 1969 Hubbard believed that relations with the island were so smooth that officials would permit him to establish a Scientology University (called The Greek University of Philosophy) and offices on its shores (Forte, 1981: 29, 37-41). Information, however, provided by the British and Australian governments, plus a display of concern about the group by sentries from United States Marines motivated the Greek Foreign Secretary to expel Hubbard and his crew on March 19th. Hubbard was so taken off guard by the twenty-four hour expulsion notice that he apparently was "overcome by shock" (Forte, 1981: 41). Undoubtedly a contributing factor to his shock was his loss of a land base from which he could have operated and extended his influence in the country.

I bring this up because of the targeting of the London Olympics and also the continuing targeting of third world countries with particular emphasis on places like Cuba and Colombia.The whole paper is well worth reading and gives many insights into how Scientology operates and make no mistake this is how they have always operated.Why change the habit of a lifetime when you are hellbent on ruling the world.
