"I hear a lot of whining and moaning here and there about how bad it is over  here. But I notice it is always from people who are totally incompetent and  who depend for their communication line on their imagination and with as  little recourse to fact as possible."                                         -L. Ron Hubbard, 1955

The Savage Squirrel

“Over the past 15 years we have seen a lot of groups splinter off from Scientology and beat the drum for some offbeat use of the technology. We call them ‘squirrels’ because they are so nutty. They come and they go. We’re still here and will continue to be.

“The keynote of such ‘developments’ is how to avoid auditing and prevent revealing overts.

“We don’t object to Dianetics or Scientology being used. We prefer it to have its right name. But we like to have it in clean hands.

“They are quite violent on the subject of ethics as you ordinarily expect a criminal to be and are savage about organizations, having stolen money and lists from ours. They are being careful not to attack me publicly in the hopes people will think them noble and inspired. They’re inspired all right – by the ‘buck.’ But we wish them no bad luck. We don’t have to. It’s punishment enough just to be themselves and live with what they are.”
