Theo Sismanides in the Sea Org
This is some thoughts of mine and an attempt to draw some conclusions from situations that I have seen happening in the Sea Org. I was in it for 9 years. I had big wins from LRH’s tech and policy and I want to thank him for what he gave us as well as I want to thank all the hard working and dedicated staff in the Sea Org for what they are doing. I also want to thank those Scientologists who are true Scientologists, and accept only 100% standard application of the tech and policy of LRH and stand up for it, like the people in the FZ, as an example.
However, I have to admit that there are those in the Sea Org, as you are going to see in this write up, that alter LRH’s tech and policy, apply force and harsh ethics, harass staff members who dare speak about it, and make sure that a covert operation of infiltration of Scientology and perversion of its principles, as laid out by the Founder, is going on.
I hope this write up contributes to putting ethics in and shedding more light in an area that some chose to not look at, saying nothing is wrong, and on the other hand others are trying like mad to get YOU not to look. Well, my answer is: keep looking; the process is continued. Here is some data and thoughts for you to help you evaluate a situation, by providing some material for you to look closer:
How could it happen that a Sea Org member with a 9 years service finds himself out of the Sea Org?
Well, it wouldn’t happen unless the following was true:
- When there are specific policies of LRH that you know they are not being applied and not only there is no intention for them to be applied but if you communicate about them and try to put them in you find yourself being persecuted, black PRed, put under “justice” (=injustice) etc.
- When you find out that the resistance and the persecution starts from very high, the highest possible within the church, that is, RTC and specifically David Miscavige himself (see Issue 1) .
- When you are being told that the Golden Age of Tech is what will help the “blind” recover their light as up to now it was found by RTC that the “blind had been leading the blind”. A statement that was made by David Miscavige when he inaugurated the golden age of tech. It is as if LRH couldn’t train competent auditors or supervisors but only “blind” ones. And when you see that LRH has explicitly stated in HCO PL 16 April 1965 “Drill Allowed” (OEC Volume 5), which kind of practical drills are allowed for auditor training and, of course, no such a thing as the golden age of tech drills are included.
- When you see that the whole Admin system of LRH has been changed with the New Era of Management. One statement is enough. There are packs full of International Management Executive Committee Executive Directives (IMEC EDs) and other such kind of issues, not LRH, which are given to the Sea Org to study instead of giving them LRH or compiling all LRH references in specific packs and taking it from there. LRH says what happens when someone re-writes an author. This is unavoidable.
- When you see that the orgs are limping under New Era of Management and under the finance system that Int Management has put there as its own policy. Once I went to Tel Aviv on a mission and we saw that the org had many financial problems, the staff was not being paid much etc.etc. Then I asked to see their financial system a bit and checked into it and with great surprise saw that the org would have to pay to Int mgmt quite a sum before it would start paying for its own survival, namely its rent…! The rent payment as a matter of fact with that financial system was literally one of the last things that the org would care to pay… I was very surprised because such a system was actually out exchange with the environment and it made the staff and the organization criminals. The FBO had told me characteristically that the rent is only paid when things become tough for them! I cannot believe LRH would be operating like that.
- When you see then that the staff, dedicated otherwise and hard working are continuously underpaid in an era where money and energy are so easy to make that even wog businesses and their employees thrive, flourish and prosper. There is nothing wrong with money and being able to buy what one needs (we are talking about basic needs now). There is nothing wrong with seeing your income going up continuously, it can be done on staff too, LRH says so and has done it. All it takes is the willingness and a fair financial system to put it in. Many times in the Sea Org in Europe the staff pay was cut contrary to specific LRH references that it shouldn’t be done. So, staff get the idea that they can work for nothing and no one is responsible for the bad financial condition of their organization. Or they moonlight which, to my opinion, is the worst PR for Scientology as it says that Scientology technology cannot make someone survive and you need wog jobs to make a living.
- When a Sea Org member’s communication lines are being chopped to pieces: no Internet access allowed without CSW, no cellular phones allowed without CSW? Why? I’ll tell you why. To not find what is going on within Scientology. Yes, that’s right. On the Internet there are a lot of stories about people who have been persecuted, as I have been persecuted, people who not all of them were necessarily crazy, hallucinating, SPs, traitors, but per what I have read had valid points and followed points 7, 8, 9 and 10 of KSW series # 1. So this is what they are afraid of, not what they are saying not to see the “entheta” and the OT materials. If the Sea Org knew about the entheta in detail they could judge by themselves and they would see that not all of it is entheta. Of course, on the Internet there are real enemies of LRH. They speak badly of him and they know nothing of Scientology and try to suppress it in their stupidity and short sightedness. They should be fought and the entheta suppressed. But it’s not A=A=A. There are also people who are Scientologists and try to find a way after having been ousted from the church, not always on correct grounds. Why is this entheta? Where is the freedom of speech and where is their right to protect Scientology as they deem correct? So, this is what the Establishment within the church is afraid of and why they are afraid of the Sea Org members having free access to the internet and to cellular phones, which, by the way, recently can get one connected to the internet, too.
- When you see 10,000 translated tapes being destroyed in AOSHEU from their Briefing Course and their Academy and the staff unable to do anything, and these tapes comprised the very materials of the BC in all European languages. European Scientologists who don’t speak English don’t have a chance to do the BC anymore. These tapes were destroyed few years ago under the pretext that they were bad translations but this cannot be true as from these tapes there have been many students who graduated as Class VIs. Also LRH is very specific in CBO 918 where he says “come off of the perfectionism, this thing can be perfectionized until it’s never released”. This is very important as the main line that RTC is pushing to disguise all delays in the issuance of translations is the false datum “that the translations must be perfect”. Volume comes first, quality second. It’s time correct priorities and importances were looked at and applied.
- When AOSHEU has not turned out any Class VI auditors (to say nothing about Class VIIIs) for 3 years now that I have been in Europe and I know few things of their statistics. Maybe they made one Class VI, maximum two. But this is also doubtful. And when you see Int Mgmt’s insistence with godly given righteousness on this matter, as they would rather train people on the BC with… Method 7 (!) instead of putting back the tape course series and the tape translations. And all this in a world which in 2 years (which, I believe, is the average time it takes to be a Class VI in our days), could be in such a condition that it will be very difficult to revert the situation. Now, if we want to teach the BC students English with Method 7 instead of graduating them as fast as possible and send them out to audit in the orgs and the field as Class VIs, well, then we are on the “right path” and we better not change anything. But, of course, this is an altered importance and a wrong sequence, we know that.
- When you see that the Sea Org members’ dynamics are being curtailed, and namely their 2nd dynamic has been cut completely, by the issuance of an illegal Flag Order by ED Int in 1996, a Flag Order which has NO validity as it was not issued by LRH and it contradicts all LRH references on the dynamics as in a few words it forbids the Sea Org members to procreate and have children anymore in the Sea Org. Again under a pretext of “we are running out of time” and children are considered a “hindrance to the Sea Org’s target”. What a joke! Or what a tragedy! You chose. But it goes on.
- When, then, we’d rather have abortions enforced on ethical people like the Sea Org members who under the heavy burden put upon them by arbitrary and erroneous interpretations of the principle of “the greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics” by church officials (a line which is coming down, as Jesse Prince also pointed out, from COB many years ago pushing him and his wife to have an abortion of their child) and the mental stress resulting from any disobedience to orders of such high authorities are led to the erroneous conclusion and the enforced decision to kill a life of a baby and drop half of their dynamics for the… next billion years. Any Scientologist having read the ethics book, the SOS, or the DMSMH or even just having some common sense of the dynamics would know what such an act does to the rest of the dynamics and its repercussions for the Sea Org and the Sea Org members and the world we are going to build. And as a friend of mine within the Sea Org who was also in a “tough” spot ethicswise, because he disagreed, as he mentioned to me: why are we doing these weddings in the Sea Org and we give vows as spouses in front of a minister when we know that we cannot have children anymore? (The Sea Org weddings). What is the purpose of getting married then if not for sex only and just theta support between spouses or even gaining status through such marriages? Where is the second part of this dynamic and where does LRH say that Sea Org members DO NOT have a right to procreate and keep being SEA ORG members? Where is the reference from LRH?
- When you see that high executives of the Sea Org, the highest it can be, are giving verbal and false data contrary to policy to juniors without any remorse or a quiver:
- ED Int, Guillaume Leserve, on the Flag Order about children
- ED Int 3 times has written to me that specific HCOBs on translations don’t apply because Int Mgmt had now programmes based on “other confidential” LRH references.
- RTC Reports Officer has written to my wife answering a dispatch of hers on translations, giving us a hidden data line that again there are “other references of LRH which we couldn’t see as they were confidential” on the subject of translations.
- Deputy Inspector General RTC for Europe, Antonella Tisi, tried to mislead me many times not answering directly my comms why the HCOBs about translations are not applied, by giving me always PR answers or irrelevant data (like read Student Hat tapes 1 and 2 to solve the situation) instead of taking a firm stand as RTC and protect the tech and enforce the application of the HCOBs no matter what, who and why, thus doing 7, 8, 9 and 10 of KSW series # 1. Instead while gaining time with her PR answers to me, she, behind my back, was pushing for Fitness Boards and other actions (continuous sec checks, plant checks asking me if I was… a CIA agent or an agent of the Greek Secret Intelligence…(!!!). I answered that I wish a CIA agent would act like that and do something about KSW.). Meanwhile I was under constant watch by the security forces of the local base who didn’t know what to say about the whole situation as they knew that I was a good staff member and couldn’t understand the situation. But being reasonable, they couldn’t see that disobeying and actually revolting against illegal orders is OK and is actually the way staff should act so as to avoid any possibility of incorrect application, alter-ised technology etc. per KSW series #1. So D/IG RTC EU was using the security in order to make me shut up and be a good boy, not caring for the actual issue of the translations much less about the fact that blatant alter-is of LRH tech was being passed as OK in front of our own eyes.
- MATEI, (Materials Executive Int) tried to convince me with dispatches that a Flag Order has more power than HCOBs if it is of a later date… (FO, Translations Typing speaking about written translations because it was issued in 1972 and the HCOBs dated from 1971). I am not going to comment on that and invalidate your basic knowledge of Scientology policy and tech.
- Chairman of the Board, RTC, David Miscavige, didn’t know that there were no Academies translated in the many languages of Europe up to the summer of 1999, per the statement of the Commanding Officer of the Continental Liaison Office in EU, Walter Kotric, who had just returned to EU after a briefing he got on the translations by COB. So, COB issued a programme to remedy this, but he didn’t follow LRH’s policy and tech, namely the HCOBs, though he mentions one of them in the “Going Global” event speech, which he gave on translations, which can be seen in the “Going Global” video (released as one of the summer 1999 Freewinds Maiden Voyage event videos). On top of that per the Commanding Officer of the CLO EU, Walter Kotric, COB gave him an explanation as to why the HCOBs don’t apply, telling him that there is an advice from LRH which says differently than the HCOBs, which is verbal data. Even if that was true and such advice existed, an advice cannot cancel or revise HCOBs and COB is trying to tell us that LRH “lost his senses at the end of this life time” and changed his standard admin system, starting canceling HCOBs with advices and things like that. This is an attempt to throw out Standard Admin and confuse a Scientologist as to the Standardenss of LRH tech and policy. COB RTC cannot be forwarding such verbal data down the org board as such statements are highly injurious for the order of a third dynamic such as the Sea Org entrusted by LRH to safeguard Scientology.
- COB RTC also, again per the Commanding officer of the CLO EU who conveyed this to us, gave his own interpretation to an LRH reference titled
“Scientology Clear Procedure”, and the CO CLO EU forwarded this interpretation in the summer of 1999 to the staff of the CLO EU ordering them to forward it to the public Scientologists: The phrase included in this reference (which can be found in the Red Volumes) “The work was free; keep it so”, meant according to the line that was coming down from COB that “LRH was not paid for his work and so, Scientologists who translated or helped in translations should do the same thing and not ask for money”. Thus, all the call-in to Scientologists from the Translations Unit Europe telling them that they are no longer going to be paid when they do translations as “the work was free; keep it so”. And when you are the Translations Unit Director, as I happened to be at that time (summer of 1999) and you know the message LRH wants to convey in the above reference you get furious and you know you have no other choice but to whisper to your sons and grandsons: the work was free; keep it so”. And so I am writing and publishing all this for the Scientologists’ info.
Following this line I consider it my duty towards LRH to scream out as loud as possible that specific people, probably very few but also very high on the Org Board of Scientology, who have formed a secret network of some kind within the upper strata of the Sea Org, are openly and blatantly, not following or even altering LRH’s tech and are trying to enforce with any possible brutal and fascistic means ideas and policies which are not per LRH, down the org board. These same people are assisting dark powers in this sector of the Universe to turn the Sea Org members and the OT Organization of the Sea Org into blind, non-thinking entities, who would accept anything even if that would be against the Founder’s policies and technology just to be nice and pleasant to their seniors. Such an atmosphere is being cultivated within the Sea Org and such intentions are very suspicious as they resemble actions of a totalitarian regime, and they have nothing to do with discipline and what LRH intended for the Sea Org, acting as the basis for third party actions between LRH and his dedicated staff members and scientologists who try to do something to protect the tech and all the church principles and credos and the humanitarianism stemming from them.
I am not the first one who reports such things on the Internet and this can be two-sided: on one hand the fact that there are many others who claim similar things and persecutions and High Crimes on the part of RTC and their accessories within the Sea Org is a proof that this is not just a single report and this is a plus-point. I am not just one person who might, after all, have gone crazy or something…
On the other hand, most of the people who dared speak up and dared oppose such atrocities loudly have been labeled “SPs” and now whoever speaks up will join the club. I am just waiting for my turn now, with the “proper” PR type of publication, justifying why I am declared SP. I am ready for it in full conscience and I am proud that they are going to declare me. If I am declared by such people, who perform such High Crimes, and stay unpunished, let me laugh. This is a cult. It is not pure and just Scientology. Force will never beat reason. Declare me all you want.
But Scientologists have to overcome this filter and mental pressure that the network of those who alter-is LRH tech within the church are putting there on such “revolutionaries” and Scientologists have to be able to see through this filter with no bias and prejudices exactly as LRH states it in the first step of the Doubt formula and judge for themselves. Don’t see the labels, see behind them, and see for yourself and think for yourself. See the data. Take the data and have at look at them only. Do not go into any HE&R stuff.
And, again, any “SP declare” on me by such people whose intentions are to do and get others to do otherwise than what LRH says and persecute those who dare speak up against this, and whose intentions are openly now to not abide to LRH rules of tech and policy and who are not putting ethics in within the very organization that LRH founded to do just that, that is, to protect the tech, if SUCH PEOPLE declare me, being who they are, when they fall (and fall they will) from their positions of obviously usurped power, the true Scientologists will know me and the many others who dared speak up for what we really are, without false labels.
So, I am not afraid of their labels, they can put as many as they want on me. I am a free man, I’m a spirit and I owe it to LRH and his giving to me this knowledge again and my power. So… my neck is worth no more than LRH’s , and allow me to say yours isn’t either, so why don’t you take a closer look and look for yourself this time, not what someone else is telling you before it’s too late.
So, I want to thank LRH for what he has given us, the beautiful game of Scientology. It’s not easy when you approach the truth, it’s not easy to go through all this mist and PR screens that you are being fed and believe your own eyes. I know the bank is there to invalidate just this: you and your observations. But beware, my friends, if you can see something, there must be something there. Do not invalidate this. Pull the strings, ask around, look for answers, communicate. And collect the data so that you draw correct conclusions. I hope I gave you some hints with all the above. If you need more specifics you can read also Issue 1 and 2 of mine or write to me directly to my e-mail address, which you can get via the FZ. I will keep doing what I am doing as this is a hat that is not worn at this time and this is what creates the utmost enturbulation in Scientology: just a hint that one piece of the tech or policy is not being applied and furthermore its application is being resisted should raise a whole revolution within Scientology and it should be dealt severely and with the utmost of disciplinary means within the church as this is the biggest danger of all, our inability to apply the tech and lose control over its protection. KSW series # 1 is our reference. It doesn’t say to be pleasant or social. This is implanting stuff. When you see your family and friends being butchered you are not pleasant or social. So, it is much worse when we are talking about the eternity of our families and friends. Don’t hold back and don’t be reasonable. This is your planet, this is your Scientology, too. You can observe things. You are not “the blind who are leading the blind”. You are a Scientologist. A higher order of a being, of a man, thanks to the technologies of Dianetics and Scientology given to us by L. Ron Hubbard
His work was free; keep it so.
