A Layman's Guide to the 'FreeZone'

Please note the ‘FreeZone’ has nothing to do with the Free Zone as defined by the Free Zone Decree.

This Guide is a work-in-progress.

The Free Zone, as originally made known by Captain ‘Bill’ Robertson, has been redefined in the ‘FreeZone’ as meaning something else entirely. That ‘something else’ can, at times, appear to be vague and misleading in both intent and in purposes. Listed below are a few individuals, and a few of the many organizations which they have created, clearly laid out for all to see. Please keep in mind that the ‘FreeZone’ is much, much different than the Free Zone as stated in the Free Zone Decree. The following are presented in no particular order.

Organizations

Freie Zone e.V.

This organization, founded by seven individuals whose names remain a guarded secret, was originally created in the wake of Captain ‘Bill’ Robertson’s death, purportedly in 1991. It’s stated goal: "This association is an initiative by the supporters of philosophies of cognition. A philosophy of cognition deals with the change and development of persons through self-achieved cognitions." Bernd Luebeck is the President of this registered ‘association’ in Germany.

RONs Org

RONs Org was originally created by Captain ‘Bill’ Robertson before his death in 19xx. As a delivery mechanism for Scientology processing, this organization today is both secretive and publicly uncommunicative. You will not hear about those in this ‘loosely organized’ group other than through a very few select individuals. RONs Orgs are closely tied with the Freie Zone e.V. association in Germany.

FreeZone International

A group which appears to be spearheaded by Ralph Hilton. It’s member list remains a secret as well as the businesses it represents. This organization also promotes Ralph’s ‘brand’ of Scientology as well as anonymous newsgroup posting instructions.

Free Zone Advanced Organisations International

This front group promotes the clearing businesses of Tommy Thompson and Ralph Hilton, among other unknown ‘clearing’ practitioners who have their own personal business. More recently, it seems that a rift occurred between Hilton and Thompson thereby moving this front group under the domain of Ralph Hilton.

United Free Zone Alliance

This group appears to be in control of the Freie Zone e.V. association. Members of this group are both secretive and uncommunicative about it’s intent and purpose.

International Advanced Church in Los Angeles

Another front for Tommy Thompson’s personal business.

International Church of Advanced Universal Spiritual Enlightenment (ICAUSE)

Another front for Tommy Thompson’s personal business.

Operating Thetan Advanced Orgs World Wide

Another front group for Tommy Thompson’s personal business.

FreeZone America (at the web site freezoneamerica.org)

Created by Mike Hunsaker after being dismissed as webmaster of FZA.ORG (Free Zone America) for using that site for personal gain, this site is another front for Tommy Thompson’s personal business. In order to avoid losing any potential market value from the loss of FZA.ORG, Mike created this ‘brand’ of Free Zone America.

Workgroup for Fundamental Spiritual Research and Mental Training

This is Heidrun Beer’s organization located in Austria.

-> Basically, there are three individuals at the top of the ‘FreeZone’ organizational pyramid. Bernd Lubeck, Ralph Hilton and more recently, Tommy Thompson. There are many more that work ‘in secret’.

FreeZone Fringe Organizations

Internet News Groups

alt.clearing.technology

This is Homer Smith’s attempt at providing a place for ‘FreeZoners’ and the like. Scientology, in this newsgroup, is viewed as being incomplete and at times, unworkable. To resolves these issues alternative ‘based on the works of’ clearing ‘technologies’ are accepted and welcomed.

alt.religion.scientology

Here is where critics come to vent the issues that they have with the Church of Scientology. Contrary to the newsgroup’s name, the posters on this newsgroup are not interested in the religious aspect of Scientology other than to use it as a tool for the church’s destruction or self-aggrandizement

-> Other minor newsgroups exist which are basically ignored by ‘FreeZoners’ and non-‘FreeZoners’ alike.

Tommy was influential in destroying the unbiased web site FZA.ORG under Mike Hunsaker’s stewardship. At last report, Tommy was conducting business out of the house of Ken Ogger aka "The Pilot". Tommy’s quote of "The free zone is not what cbr said it was." demonstrates the alteration so inherent in the ‘FreeZone’.
