Dear Ger
I just thought that I'd get in comm with you concerning the recent black PR campaign you have been waging against me. I felt that I was starting to go effect and so wanted to put my feelings in writing, as you know "if it isn't written, it isn't true".

By the way over the years I have amassed quite a collection of source references which a variety of people have donated to me and from time to time I dip into them to find out what Ron says to do in a given situation.

My initial feelings are that by the level of unwarranted criticism levelled against me suggests that perhaps you might consider doing an O/W write up on me. We all know what criticism implies.

You mentioned for example in one of your flyers that certain Mennonites were convicted of being involved in drug related activities and attempted thus to tar me with the same brush. I feel that is a bit of an "A=A" type of analysis to be honest. I mean not only were you wrong targeting me, you were also attacking a constructive and betterment group, namely Dialogue Ireland. I could go on but I'm sure you understand what I am saying. I'm not trying to introvert you but I just wanted to point out that I am not a Martian or an FBI agent you know. "Intelligence and judgement cannot exist in the face of an identification, but can exist in the face of a differentiation" as Ron said.

I will be left with no option but to apply standard source references on handling black PR. For instance in HCO-PL 11 May 1971 Issue 3, Ron writes "So PR enters intelligence in this way: One finds out who set up the black propaganda and explodes that into public view". In line with this I am setting up a web page and will be including a copy of your criticisms of Dialogue, which are complete with your name, address and phone number.

I was doing a bit of obnosis there the other day and having heard some years ago that Dublin mission was supposed to become a Class V Org, I observed that the stats appear to have crashed over that time frame. I was thinking that was a bad indicator and indicated problems of an ethics nature. The thought struck me that perhaps people were going around saying that Mike the SP is responsible for the crashed stats and so on so I thought I ought to point out that per KSW it is not the government or the high priests that will cause failure, it is ones own failure to apply the tech.

Anyhow I'll finish up at this point so hopefully we will start to see some case change pretty soon, I do hope you knock off the third party and natter about me.

Your friend and much ARC,


black PR
black propaganda
go effect
Feel the adverse effect of someone (one can be cause or effect), it implies PTSness which implies an SP in the vicinity (this letter is implying that Ger is the SP)
O/W write up
Overts and Withholds = basically the person has to write down all their transgressions against the individual, in this case you are suggesting Ger writes down all his "sins" against you and when he looks at a very full page or two he will begin to feel a sense of his responsibility and cease to blame you as he cops onto the fact that he doesn't have clean hands. This is a very standard scn technique, and I believe quite powerful when honestly done.
This is where everything is identified with everything else sort of like "all catholics are scum coz a handful of priests abused children", it is the basis of the reactive mind - one must be able to differentiate between things rather than identify everything with everything else.
wrong targeting
The dog barks so he kicks the cat. This is very important as it is one of the 12 characteristics of an SP.
attacking a constructive and betterment group
This is clear but importantly it is one of the 12 characteristics of an SP.
I'm sure you understand what I am saying
i.e. you have SP characteristics
HCO-PL 11 May 1971 Issue 3
This is the 3rd policy letter he wrote on that date (PL = policy letter)
observing the obvious
Class V Org
The next level up from a mission, ie a promotion for the mission.
statistics = measurement of how they are doing
bad indicator
indicates something is wrong
a famous Policy Letter (keeping Scn Working) which is the first Policy letter on every Scn course - ie every time you do a new course you have to read this policy letter again. So it is central to Scn.
case change
an improvement in behaviour
third party and natter
talking about me behind my back saying nasty things etc.
Affinity, Reality, Communication: they make up "understanding" and in this context mean "I like you" - ie: I have affinity for you, I have a reality with you (ie: I get where you are coming from etc) and I have good communication with you.
