Many EDs do not expire until they are cancelled, replaced or revised.

One very important ED is LRH ED 284 (the price increase issue). It
was in effect for years. It was continually complied to when prices
around the world increased 5% - 10% every month for years. And I
dare even say that more than a few orgs complied! <grin>
Beginning in November 1976, orgs generally saw a dramatic increase
in prices. There were numerous additions to this ED, many of which
dealt with book price increases and/or specific continents' pricing.
I mean, if anyone is really interested I could list hundreds of EDs
that were in force AND USE 20 years after LRH wrote them!!!
LRH ED 55 Int SO Special Financial Planning Programme No. 1 is a
I am very disbelieving that DM actually believes that EDs expire
after one year. LRH policy has *LONG* stated that specific types of
EDs remain in force until complied to. After all, they *are*
executive directives. They are orders. And a key part of any Sea Org
member (which DM has been for decades) is that one promises to comply
with "Command Intention" at ALL TIMES.
Even the Letter Reg Unit Typist Nancy Thomas at ASHO Day knows
that many EDs do not expire until they are cancelled, replaced or
revised. And another key point is this:
Do you honestly believe that when an issue is cancelled or
it expires, that *every* Sea Org member and Scientologist
*everywhere* IMMEDIATELY says? -- "Oh, ...look! Another issue
has been "cancelled". I'd better go remove *that* issue from
my hat pack right away!"
The thing that MOST BOTHERS ME about David Miscavige's testimony
UNDER OATH as recorded in the deposition in the Corydon case, is
that it really does NOT seem like David Miscavige actually was
telling the truth. <grin> (putting it politely)
I have had execs who were my senior in Scientology who were not
hatted on the policies governing the divisions, departments,
sections and units under them. One Executive Secretary who was a
Chief Petty Officer holding the post of Chief Officer, actually told
me to report my stats as being in "POWER" when they were "only" in
"affluence" because a statistic in "affluence" for the week earned
only 3 points in the "LRH Birthday Game", but a "POWER stat" earned
6 points. I believe the actual order was "Report it [my stat] in
POWER, and figure out the 'admin' later!" I told him to *STUFF IT!!!*
Next thing I knew he was cussing at me, but he knew he couldn't get
me to "FALSE REPORT", and that since my "stat" was UP, I had "Ethics"
protection. He just stormed off in a fit.
Soon after that he (Allen G.) blew staff with another SO member's
wife (Jane B, who was married to Bill B.) It was tragically fucked up!
(Sorry Billy boy!)
Anyway, I digressed a bit here...
The original point was that even I (a Div Head at the time) KNEW
that EDs do not all expire in one year. It just isn't true, folks!
Someone wasn't telling the truth, the whole truth and nothing but
the truth. What *was* uttered by DM was a *half=truth* -- an
If I were senior to a fellow like DM, I would *definitely* send
that boy to hatting and cramming to get his "false data stripped"!
And I betcha a certain former Cramming Officer Norm Novitsky, or
David Aldrich, or Dennis Erlich would agree and understand that
what I am saying is true -- that all EDs do not expire in one year!
Actually DM's statement that they do kinda makes him look like a
"SQUIRREL". Imagine that, a former SO member, in a condition of
"ENEMY" correcting the record!
If I were a judge with my integrity I would cite DM for contempt.
And I would sanction him for wasting Ms. Plevin's time. Probably
impose fines too. And I would find unclean hands on the part of DM
and his counsel.
I would remind him that he lives in the United States of
America where lying under oath is a crime, and that the laws
of this United States are *SENIOR* to any Scientology "policies"!!
Here's my disclaimer: Maybe good ol' DM really wasn't lying,
and he sincerely believes what he said. In that case, I retract my
accusation, and I say he is one IGNORANT executive.
The above is ONLY MY OPINION AS I SEE IT.
Would any Scientologist care to refute what I have said?
