Know your Enemy

This Guardian Order was circulated to all staff of the Guardian's Office as a guide to spotting 'Suppressives' (enemies and traitors) within Scientology. It is an interesting insight into what the fanatical Scientologist - and its author, Jane Kember, most certainly was that - considers to be antithetical to Scientology.

It is certain that L. Ron Hubbard himself approved of this, it is after all based on Hubbard's own descriptions of how an SP would behave.


GO Staff 30 November 1971


As GO W/W has continuous difficulty with those who cannot recognise 1.1 statements, usually uttered by reasonable treason cases, SPs etc., attached is a list of famous quotes, so that they are recognisable.

  1. The data of Scientology actually stems from famous religious and philosophical teachers of the past, ie Buddha, Confucious [sic], etc and therefore there lies no monopoly on the data of Scientology.
  2. LRH states that he has given Scientology as a gift to mankind, therefore I use it as I see fit.
  3. LRH wants the data of Scientology to be spread widely, so I am using it in _______ (Whatever you wish to insert) and there is no copyright on wisdom. (even if I pervert and alter-is every bit of it.)
  4. If you don't help me, I may be put in the uncomfortable position of having to tell the authorities the truth.
  5. I'm not in disagreement with LRH, only the organization.
  6. I know the tech works, but the organization is suppressive.
  7. I know the tech works, but I disagree with Ron. (generally a load of entheta follows on LRH.)
  8. After I left Scientology, I was caught up and led astray by some local SP or circumstances, or the fates, or the stars etc.
  9. I was too upset to know what I was doing when I went to the Press, Govt, Mental Home, Psychiatrist etc.
  10. (A person goes to the Police, authorities etc) I only did this because I felt I could right a real wrong in the organization.
  11. If the technology of Scientology is to be fully used, nothing should be confidential, which is why I stole the CC material etc.

  18. Scientology is an interesting technique which should be used in pshyco-therapy [sic], business, efficiency, education etc etc.

  20. L. Ron Hubbard may appeal to the Americans but his books will have to be rewritten for the English, French, Germans etc.

  33. I know Scientology is a religion, but VIPs will be scared off if its presented that way.
  34. No-one should be overt.
  35. The best method of dissemination is to give them data they can use, and when they have had lots of wins, tell them its Scientology.
  36. I only attacked Scientology because I did not understand what it was doing.

  53. What is out 2D?
  54. (person who leaves with the funds) - I regard it as a short term loan - not theft.

  68. I have improved on the meter design, the TRs, Engram Running, policy etc.
  69. It would do Scientology good to be banned because _________.

GO staff must be able to recognise those of evil intent as they push towards the orgs. They always tell you, but this tends to be not-ised in a flood of reasonableness. Past actions are important, and we do not permit those who have previously betrayed us to come back to betray again.

Of course Ethics, Tech and Admin will handle but we owe no duty of care to SPs or traitors. We do not consider that one strayed sheep, returned to the fold is of greater importance than those who have never strayed - nor do we consider that because an SP wants to return, he or she is automatically trustworthy.

Scientology is earned and no-one has it as a right.

The GO is totally unreasonable as operating procedure.
