ENEMY SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or

HCO Policy Letter of 21 October 1968
CANCELLATION OF FAIR GAME
The practice of declaring people FAIR GAME will cease.
FAIR GAME may not appear on any Ethics Order. It causes
bad public relations. This P/L does not cancel any policy on the treatment or handling
of an SP.
A Suppressive person becomes "fair game."
By FAIR GAME is meant, may not be further protected by the
codes and disciplines of Scientology or the rights of a Scientologist
they cannot be granted the rights and beingness ordinarily
rational beings and so place themselves beyond any consideration
for their feelings or well being.
The homes, property, places and abodes of persons who have been
active in attempting to suppress Scientology or Scientologists are
all beyond any protection of Scientology Ethics.

Lecture of 25 June 1952:
"Overts, Motivators and Deds". "The only way you can control people is to lie to them.
write that down in your book in big letters. The only way you can
control people is to lie to them.
When you find an individual is lying to you, you know that individual
is trying to control you. One way or another this individual is trying
to control you. That is the mechanism of control. The individual is
lying to you because he is trying to control you - because if they
give you enough misinformation they will pull you down the tone
scale so that they can control you. Conversely, if you see an impulse
on the part of a human being to control you, you know very well
that that human being is lying to you. Not 'is going to' but 'is' lying
Check these facts, you will find they are always true. That person
who is trying to control you is lying to you. He's got to tell you
lies in order to continue control, because the second you start
telling anybody close to the truth, you start releasing him and
he gets tougher and tougher to control. So, you cant control
somebody without telling them a bunch of lies. You will find that
very often Command has this as its greatest weakness. It will try to
control instead of leading. The next thing you know, it is lying to
the [illegible]. Lie, lie, lie, and it gets worse and worse, and all
of a sudden the thing blows up. Well, religion has done this.
[Following sentence is underlined] Organised religion
tries to control, so therefore must be lying. [end underline]
After a while it figures out (even itself) that it is lying, and then
it starts down tone scale further and further, and all of a sudden
people get down along this spring-like bottom (heresy) and say,
"Are we going into apathy and die, or are we going to revolt?"
and they revolt, because you can only lie to people so long.
Unfortunately there is always a new cycle of lying.

HCO POLICY LETTER OF 7 DECEMBER 1969
When things go wrong and we don't know why already by
intelligence, we resort to investigation.
When we need somebody haunted we investigate.
When we investigate we do so noisily always. And usually mere
investigation damps out the trouble even when we discover no
really pertinent facts.
Remember that - by investigation alone we can curb
Pushes and crush wildcat people and unethical "Dianetics
and Scientology" organizations.
It's almost funny. We sometimes learn nothing useful and yet
because people heard we were investigating their consciences
sent them into headlong flight or sudden collapse. There's
power in the question alone!
Remember, intelligence we get with a whisper. Investigation
we do with a yell. Always. Modern cops don't really know this.
They investigate with whispers. Doesn't pay. Why sneak up
when pouncing is the only thing that serves us? After all, if it
hasn't been whispered to us already and we have to investigate
why keep whispering?
Did you ever realize that any local viciousness against
Scientology organizations is started by somebody for a purpose?
Well, it is. Look at what we do. Look how dedicated staff is.
How hard they work. And yet somebody feels we're evil? No,
rumors aren't natural".
When you run them down you find a Commie or a millionaire
who wants us dead and his own clinic up or a group member
who is also a member of the R.C.
You don't rest when bad rumors are about. You investigate, you
run them down. You find amongst ail our decent people some low
worm who has been promised high position and pay if we fail. Don't
discount this. In one instance $500, 000 was paid in cash to a man
to wreck Dianetics. He almost made it. Wichita Kansas, Spring
1952. (But by intelligence and investigation we cost him his shirt
and his spare vest as well. )
Public opinion isn't newspapers or magazines or letters. It is
attendance, balance sheets, book sales.
When you have found your culprit, go to the next step, Judgement
and Punishment. INVESTIGATION BY OUTSIDE SOURCES
Overt investigation of someone or something attacking us
by an outside detective agency should be done more often
and hang the expense. It's _very_ effective.
by a private detective has alone closed up an entheta source
or a squirrel organisation. In fact at this writing I can't remember
a time when it hasn't!
Hire them and damn the cost when you need to.
PROCEDURE ON ENTHETA PRESS
In the case of a bad magazine article which is signed, use the
1: Tell them by letter to retract at once in the next issue.
2: Hire a private detective of a national-type firm to investigate the
_writer_, not the magazine, and get any criminal or Communist
back-ground the man has. (Because all subversive activities foolishly
use criminals they "have something on" and men who have been
paid to attack attack us, you'll have data incoming from the detective
agency if they do their work well. 3: Have your lawyers or solicitors write the magazine threatening
suit. (Hardly ever permit a real suit -they're more of a nuisance to
you than they're worth.)
4: Use the data you got from the detective at long last to write the
author of the article a very tantalizing letter. Don't give him your
data on him. Just tell him we know something very interesting
about him and wouldn't he like to come in and talk about it. (If
he comes, ask him to sign a confession of collusion and slander -
people at that level often will, just to commit suicide - and publish
it in a paid ad in the paper if you get it.) Chances are he won't
But he'll sure shudder into silence.
5: Give any new data you have from the detective to your
attorneys for their use against the magazine.
WHEN BEING INVESTIGATED
lf you are being investigated or if the Central Organization is -
sit tight, don't co-operate.
Be legal according to the laws of the land in the first place.
After that kick investigators or reporters downstairs.
Press interviews usually end up as entheta or they are
cover-ups for an investigation Never co-operate. Be indifferent.
Don't let the central organization co-operate with "press" ever
That's a lesson hard to learn. Press people are so persuasive
They are going to "help" so much. Look at a newspaper. ls it
Press and other queries are counter-investigation.
Never spook if investigated. And don't co-operate. Sit tight.
Be siIent. Make the investigator talk. Gradually put him into
session if you can.
Put him in birth or get him three feet back of his head. But
don't co-operate or volunteer data. lt's not that you've anything
to hide. It's just that investigators can't duplicate. They pervert
things they "hear''
Your whole answer to anyone is "This is an institution that
has a definite high standing throughout the world, Why don't
you see our attorneys?"
This kills press and cops alike.
l've seen an outside investigation of a guiltless organization
put the whole place in a flap and cost it two days' work or
more. I've seen an organization fall apart by suspending
operation for ten days while it permitted itself to he investigated.
So don't co-operate. If you don't scare or cringe, the menace

"Perhaps at some distant date only the unaberrrated person will be
granted civil rights before law. Perhaps the goal will be reached at
some future time when only the unaberrated person can attain to and
benefit from citizenship. These are desirable goals..."
(Dianetics, book 3, chapter 10)
"The reasonable man quite ordinarily overlooks the fact that
people from 2.0 down have no traffic with reason and cannot
be reasoned with as one would reason with a 3.0. There are
only two answers for the handling of people from 2.0 down on
the tone scale, neither one of which has anything to do with
reasoning with them or listening to their justification of their acts.
The first is to raise them on the tone scale by un-enturbulating
some of their theta by any one of the three valid processes.
The other is to dispose of them quietly and without sorrow." -
"Science of Survival", Chapter 27, page 157.
"The proper instruction attitude is, 'You're here so you're a

no matter what happens. We'd rather have you dead than incapable.
