To informed persons, the "Simon Bolivar" policy letter is known as
HCO PL 12 February 1967 "Admin[istrative] Know-How - The Responsibility
of Leaders". This writing of Hubbard's talks about "power", the respons-
ibilities of leaders, and the duties of those persons who are subordinate
to a person in a position of power. Hubbard defines a "POWER" (caps in
original) to mean "a leader or one who exerts wide primary influence on the
affairs of men". This policy letter is a mandatory study requirement for
those in executive positions in the Scientology cult.
Hubbard talks about Simon Bolivar's errors, saying "Simon Bolivar was
a very strong character. He was one of the richest men in South America.
He had real personal ability given to only a handful on the planet. He was
a military commander without peer in history. Why he would fail and die
an exile to be later deified is thus of great interest. What mistakes did
he make?" Hubbard references the book The Four Seasons of Manuela, by
Victor W.von Hagen, a Mayflower Dell paperback published October 1966.
Those familiar with Hubbard's "ethics formulas" for "POWER" (dealing
with holding a position of power) and "POWER CHANGE" (dealing with turning
over a position of power to another leader) know that the above-referenced
policy letter was intended by Hubbard to illustrate and explain key laws
(in Hubbard's view) necessary to the successful wielding of responsibility
and what one must do when he moves off of (leaves) a position of power.
Undoubtably this is a key policy letter in David Miscavige's "hat pack",
since he is the successor to Hubbard's position of authority in Scientology.
There is much I could say about the "Simon Bolivar" policy letter,
especially with regards to its application by the leaders of the cult of
Scientology. But the purpose of this article is not to summarize and
analyze the entire policy letter. The policy letter is one of Hubbard's
longest; it runs almost ten pages in length.
The section I wish to comment upon may be found on page nine of the
issue, where Hubbard states:
"Man is too aberrated to understand at least 7 things about Power:"
Point five states: [my comments in brackets]
"When you move off a point of power, pay all your obligations on the
nail [hush money], empower all your friends completely [give them
responsibilities and authority] and move off with your pockets full of
artillery [weapons cache at Gold?], potential blackmail [Life History
forms and sec-check confessions] on every erstwhile rival, unlimited
funds in your private account [OTC, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Kreditbank,
etc] and the addresses of experienced assasssins [scary!] and go live in
Bulgravia and bribe the police [a favorite OSA method, IMO].
When I first read this policy letter, I had an "MU" on the term
"Bulgravia". I looked it up in the dictionary and an encyclopedia but
never found it. That was in 1974 or 1975. I assumed at the time that
Hubbard was using a fictitious name for a country. The thought that
he might have meant "Bulgaria" entered my mind, but no matter. I didn't
consider it important whether it was a real place or not, and apparently
it wasn't, as far as I could determine. Perhaps I should have asked
Mo Budlong, Mary Sue Hubbard or Jane Kember!
Since that point in time over 20 years ago, I have learned exactly
what the reference was all about. As is the case with lots of Hubbard's
policy letters, the "Simon Bolivar" policy is for public consumption.
But there exists MUCH MORE on the subject of "power" and Hubbard's
actual goals, programmes [sic], targets, plans, etc ("Admin Scale" stuff)
as to EXACTLY what Hubbard intended.
It is my studied opinion that Hubbard chose BULGRAVIA out of a VERY
clearly motivated purpose. The area known as BULGRAVIA was seen by
Hubbard to be one easily infiltrated and controlled (my opinion).
BULGRAVIA is another one of Hubbard's acronyms. He LOVED acronyms
(not my opinion). BULGRAVIA means the region consisting of
BULgaria, GReece, Albania and YugoslaVIA.

just to name some.)
I find the pages to be very informative, since they show Scientology's
HIDDEN agenda. It gives a look at some MORE of the stuff that Scientology
doesn't want you to see.
I hope more people will link to the pages I mention...
