That is going to be a fascinating video! Greatly looking forward to it.

Last year I was at a local store and the owner and some others were standing outside just chatting. I joined them for a few minutes, fully unprepared for the surreal event about to happen.

One of the people in the group seemed to be quite curious about me for some reason--I guessed that maybe the 12 cylinder car I was driving that day might have tickled his interest or something. Anyways, his curiosity about what kind of business I was in made me just as curious about why he was being so nosey. So, I put on my super-sleuth hat and "out-detectived" him and within less than a minute I had found out that he was a former Scientologist. In minute number two, I learned that he was a high ranking (former) member of the GO. Hey, an SP beats a GO at the game of investigations every day of the week! LOL.

Here's the bizarre part... I was asking questions as if I didn't know anything about Scientology other than "what I read" or "what I heard". This guy went right into the drill like Pavlov's dogs, even adopting the glowing-knowing GO grin that I had forgotten about decades ago. But then it all came flooding back to me, those twinkling eyes and elite smugness as they spun their "acceptable truths". Honestly, I saw that self-satisfied smirk face so many times when I was in Scientology, I could not forget it.

Well, this is not exactly related to Arte Maren, but then maybe it is. My new "friend" outside the grocery store was getting real inspired by my seemingly innocent questions.

ME
Hey, I heard that the guy who invented Scientology,
I forget his name......

EX GO EXEC
Hubbard. L. Ron Hubbard.

ME
Oh yeah, that's right, Hubbard. Well I heard that Hubbard
and his top Scientologists all went to jail for a massive
espionage campaign against the US government. That doesn't
sound very good for a religion.

EX GO EXEC
Oh, but that's not what actually happened.
(his eyes really turning up the glow, as if
to capture me by their intensity
)
What really happened is that the Scientologists
only used some copy paper. That's all that they did
wrong, but the US government ran a big coverup and
prosecuted them anyways.

ME
Oh wow, I didn't know that. But if Scientology promotes
that they give you special abilities, why would the top people
in Scientology end up going to federal prison?


Yeah, okay, I enjoyed torturing him (LOL) but he was really getting off on thinking that he had completely bamboozled me and won me over. Google "Duper's Delight".

Karen, your story above really struck me, particularly the part about Maren (years later) not having the slightest sense or awareness that the GO had become a criminal thug gang of liars. I saw that so many times, but when I ran into that Ex-GO exec, he not only did not think there was anything wrong with it, he actually was GLOWING AND BASKING IN THE WIN OF IT! This is how deranged the mind of a cult member can become, that their conscience and cringe-reflex response is replaced by a sadistic glee and pleasure is attained by running "OPs" on other people and tricking/deceiving them.

For anyone who hasn't studied "Duper's Delight" it is quite a revelation. In my experience, I routinely found it with ex GO and OSA members, even after they had left the cult. That might be one of the last things to go when a cult member finally peels the final onion layers; lying as a pleasure moment.

GREAT post! Every bit is true.

Nice stuff, HH.
 
The above is your proof OT powerz exist - who else but an OT could take an [STRIKE]overt[/STRIKE] criminal act and believe it is a rafter shaking win. Mimsey

Thank you Helluva Hoax.
After leaving the Sea Org, for the next years I did not *make waves*, I had no intention of whistleblowing, I remained a good little Scientologist for years and was part of the social scene in Los Angeles (which I gradually withdrew more and more from) but while in the social scene, a particular Ex GO Exec would show up.
What you state above it so true.
The Go exec would reminisce of the *GLORY* days, almost wistful that those days had gone.
He quoted a sentence allegedly said by Hubbard privately
"If ever there was an Intelligence organization on the whole track more successful than the Guardian's office, well, I haven't heard of it."
But what infuriated me was his attitude to Paulette Cooper.
The former GO exec and I got into a heated debate one day sword fencing til it got unpleasant.

He believed Paulette Cooper was an Evil Bitch who deserved everything the GO did to her.

That was the last time he and I ever spoke.

Re: Arte Maren... "in this universe..."

From Hubbard's 3 June 1973 confidential 'Intelligence, Its Role' http://www.suppressiveperson.org/sp/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/4D-19.pdf All capitalization in original.:


AND WE ARE, THEREFORE, WHILE BEING TOTALLY PRACTICAL, AND WITHOUT USING ANY ACTUAL ARCANE PROCESSES, POTENTIALLY SUCCESSFUL BEYOND THE GREATEST DREAMS AND ASPIRATIONS OF ANY FORMER INTELLIGENCE SERVICE IN THIS UNIVERSE...

Intelligence furnishes much of the data on which evaluation is based.

What could be called SUPPORT Intelligence (or attack or offensive Intelligence) is the other side of the coin, and also forms a vital part of Intelligence activities. But here Intelligence is carrying out part of a program furnished by evaluation to command and ordered executed.

...it has very little to do with the arcane arts. Although our Intelligence tech might seem like black magic to those in primitive services.


______​


This was authored by Hubbard shortly after Ingo Swann was featured in 'Advance! magazine' as a Scientologist and famous psychic. Did one of the crew on the Apollo innocently ask Hubbard about using "OT powers" for "data collection," or other Intelligence actions, thus triggering Hubbard's outburst - which is lengthier than is quoted here - rejecting anything but down to earth, practical, Scientology Intelligence tech, with its down to earth Data Collection, Evaluation, and Attack - a.k.a. "Support" - Intelligence.

It's interesting that Hubbard, when he was telling tales, liked to emphasize OT abilities but, when he was serious, brushed aside such things and depended entirely on materialistic means.


______​


L. Ron Hubbard, from the confidential 'Intelligence Actions - Covert Intelligence Data Collection', 1969:


Essentially a covert operation is intended to embarrass, discredit, or overthrow or remove an actual or possible opponent. It's a small war being carried out without the true source being revealed.

See 6:20 - 7:55 for a look at how Scientologists in 1980 respond to being asked about Paulette Cooper (the short ending segment, following this, has been tacked on to the video, and is from a later program from the mid 1990s):

Jeff Friedman was a Patron in 2006. Last I heard, he's working in the HGB (admin building) in Hollywood.

Bob Ramer is now living in Boca Raton, FL, & was a donor in building Boston's Ideal Org. http://idealorgboston.org/index.php?p=donate. He is no longer with Connie, who's last known address was Clearwater, FL. (Constance Stevenson Ramer).

I'm not finding any reference to an 'Anthony Lojac' being a GO member. There is a person by that name, a former Bostonian, who claims to be a student of comparative religions.

Here's an interesting press release from Arte Maren from 1978 about the Snow White program.

"The Church of Scientology today announced that it has been "spying" on the government for years. "They call it spying", said Rev. Arthur J. Maren, national spokesman for the Church,
"but we call it reform action which is exactly what it is. We have been involved in exposing government illegalities and coverups for years", Maren said, "and this is a legitimate and traditional function of the church."
