A Scientologist’s Golden Age of Integrity Drills


Note for non-Scientologists: Wonder what all these weird formatting and colors are all about? This whole post is in David Miscavige’s Golden Age of Tech format. Miscavige called this type of drill the “What do you do?” drill. The idea of parodying Miscavige-style drills to teach Scientologists to defend themselves against Miscavige’s abuses is nicely ironic.
Note to Miscavige: This is fair-use parody.


Today, Scientologists are often asked to violate their personal integrity, to do something that just doesn’t feel right, for the “good of the group”. This is just about always in direct violation of LRH Policies, Bulletins and other instructions.

The following drills have been created to help the Scientologist defend his or her personal integrity.


  1. You are talking to the Registrar and the Registrar asks you to pay for your next book sets, auditing intensives or courses. However, you do not have enough money in the bank for this and all your normal living expenses.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Don’t buy the books, intensives or courses.
(“Sorry, I don’t have money for that right now” or similar wording.)

Reference: HCOPL 3 JUNE 1959 – FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

The basic principle of financial management is a simple one, income must be greater than outgo. — L. Ron Hubbard

  1. The Reg tells you to “Put it on your credit card” or asks you how much “room” you have on your credit cards.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Do not go into debt!
(“Sorry, LRH financial policy forbids me from going into debt.” or similar wording.)

Reference: HCOPL 3 JUNE 1959 – FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT

Amongst the principles of financial management are these: One cannot spend money unless he has it. Never contract bills or debts unless the money is immediately in sight to pay them. — L. Ron Hubbard

  1. The Reg tells you, “Get the idea more money is ‘in sight’ – and charge it”.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Do not go into debt!
(“I’m real sorry, but that violates LRH Policy” or similar wording.)

Reference: HCOPL 2 JUNE 1959 – A COMMENT ON FINANCE

I don’t run up bills if I don’t have money. I spend money freely only when it has been made and is in the bank [emphasis added]. — L. Ron Hubbard

  1. The Reg tells you, “Purpose is senior to Policy.” and tells you to violate LRH Policy and go into debt to purchase the books, intensives or courses.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Do not go into debt!
(“Excuse me, but, in Scientology, someone else’s purpose is not senior to LRH’s policy! LRH policies align perfectly with his purposes!”
or
“Listen, if LRH Policy interferes with you accomplishing your purposes, may I suggest that it isn’t LRH that needs to change?” or similar wording.)

Reference: HCOPL 10 JULY 1986 – Keeping Admin Working

Neither tech nor policy admit interpretation, alteration or “new ideas” generated by the bank. Bright, constructive application of exact principles, yes. Embellishment and know-best, never. — L. Ron Hubbard

  1. The Reg, or someone else from the org insists that you give them money for the org’s “Ideal Org” Campaign.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Do not give money to projects that explicitly violate what LRH says.
(“I’m sorry, but that isn’t what LRH says to do” or similar wording.)

Reference: Tape 31 DECEMBER 1960 – The Genus of Scientology

We own a tremendous amount of property. We own a tremendous amount of material, and so forth. And it keeps growing. But that’s not important.

When buildings get important to us, for God’s sake, some of you born revolutionists, will you please blow up central headquarters. If someone had put some H.E. [high explosives] under the Vatican long ago, Catholicism might still be going.

Don’t get interested in real estate. Don’t get interested in the masses of buildings, because that’s not important. — L. Ron Hubbard

  1. The Reg, or someone else, insists that you give them money for some other “bright idea” fund raiser – the IAS, Library Campaign, CCHR, Building Fund, Planetary Dissemination, etc.

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Do not give money to Scientology “fund raisers”.
(“I’m sorry, but this explicitly violates LRH Policy” or similar wording.)

Reference: HCOPL 24 FEBRUARY 1964 – Urgent – Org Programming

If the Org slumps: Don’t engage in “fund raising” or “selling postcards” or borrowing money.

Just make more income with Scientology.

It’s a sign of very poor management to seek extraordinary solutions for finance outside Scientology. It has always failed.

For Orgs as for pcs “Solve it With Scientology”.

Every time I myself have sought to solve finance or personnel in other ways than Scientology I have lost out. So I can tell you from experience that Org solvency lies in More Scientology, not patented combs or fund raising Barbecues. — L. Ron Hubbard

  1. The Reg, or someone else, demands fund-raising money from you because “You owe it to Ron!”

WHAT DO YOU DO?

Do not give money to Scientology for bogus “reasons”.
(“Ron specifically said that he didn’t want more money, so even if he were still around, he would never be asking me for more money.” or similar wording.)

References:

HCOPL 21 DEC 1965 – LRH FINANCIAL RELATIONSHIPS TO ORGS
This does not mean I want money. I spend my money on behalf of Scientology one way or another anyway. — L. Ron Hubbard

HCOPL 2 JUNE 1959 – A COMMENT ON FINANCE
I am not parasitic on the organization. I always make many times the amount I may spend on hybrid horned toads with pink ribbons for the front hall. –L. Ron Hubbard


Scientologists need to drill these until they can smoothly and easily retain their personal integrity despite all the off-Source pressure to do otherwise.

In this battle, LRH is on your side.

    Nice, Bill. Love the irony!

    Great work, Bill! I guess old LRH had a little common sense there after all…

  6. Just Bill says:

    Hey Milly!That is one of the major differences between LRH and Miscavige. LRH had quite a few moments of sanity, DM never has moments of sanity.

    Hi Bill…new to the comment section, long time reader. Love these drills and will make sure others get a chance to use them! Us OTs have our ways.

  8. Just Bill says:

    Thanks!I really love the idea of Scientologists having these drills — they really do need them.

  9. Don says:

    As a 25 year “veteran” of the Scientology Cult, a staff member, auditor and church executive, I must say how absolutely brilliant and refreshing I found your “Golden Age of Integrity.” I personally actually used some of those exact “drills” for my own self-protection on occasion and the results were deeply satisfying, especially at Senior Orgs (AO, Asho, Flag and the Freewinds.) In fact after my last staff contract was up, I actually used “LRH Tech and Policy” to win a two month fight with the local “Church” and finally managed to walk out the door as a “Free Being.”

  10. Just Bill says:

    @Don,Thanks! I sure wish I’d had these drills a lot earlier in my Scientology career. As it was, when I did finally develop them, they saved me tons of money and stress.

    Hi Bill,this is a great post.could you please tell me which editions or OEC volumes to find these references. . Thanks

  12. Just Bill says:

    Re: OEC volumesFor non-Scientologists: OEC stands for "Organization Executive Course" and there are eight large volumes containing the "Policy Letters" used to run all Scientology organizations, one for each division.Most of these policies you will find in OEC volume 3 – Finance. As I no longer own any OEC volumes, I can't be more specific.

    Again I see reason to laud LRH rather than to cut him down as is done so often on this site. Don't get me wrong, the cos truely sucks the big…..
