Document Library : Free Zone Sample

The following is a sample of the type of data that can be extracted from the Document library. Over time, a clearer picture can be seen of some particular aspect of interest in contrast to the near sightedness of one particular event, current or not.

This is in regard to the Free Zone. My comments begin with *.

A non-interference zone (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1390)
The Free Zone Decree : 10 Nov 1982 [doc1372]

"The planet known as Teegeeack - local dialect "Earth" or Terra - Sun 12, Sector 9, is hereby declared a Free Zone.

No political interference in its affairs from any other part of the Sector or Galaxy will be tolerated.

No economic interference in its affairs will be tolerated from any non-planetary agency or power.

All of its inhabitants are hereby declared Free Zone Citizens and free of external political or economic interference.

The regulating agency of this decree is the Galactic Patrol Sector 9, Sector Commander Elron Elray and his designated representatives.

The planet is henceforth under the Sole Auspices of the Galactic Patrol, Sector 9, for coordination with Galactic and Sector Affairs and for compliance with this decree.

The Technical and Ethical experiments in progress on Teegeeack are not affected by this decree and are to continue under the auspices of the Galactic Patrol, Sector9…"

 

Sector Operations Bulletin No. 18 : 19 Jan 1984 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1389)
CBR Tape Transcript Q&A:

"Q 20. Is it this group I’ve been hearing about, who can handle this mess and act and get the people of Earth to wake up and choose their own destiny as citizens of a Free Zone planet taking its place in the society of the Galactic Civilization and playing a survival, expansion, flourish and prosper, fun game called "The New Civilization Game". - Is not it the group known as the Galactic Patrol?

A 20. Yes."

* The Galactic Patrol has the responsibility of carrying out the purposes and intents of the ‘Free Zone Decree’. Earth is considered a Free Zone planet which has the right to decide it’s own future. ‘Free Zone’ and ‘Non-Interference’ go hand-in-hand.

 

Sector Operations Bulletin No. 19 : 20 Feb 1984 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1390)

CBR says:

"…The results are already conclusive. Scientology and Dianetics are flourishing and prospering in the Free Zone (outside the Church)…"

* The church, and everyone else for that matter, can be considered to be in the Free Zone. After all, we all live on this planet, don’t we? Here we see that Scn and Dn are doing what it is that they were intended to do.

 

Sector Operations Bulletin No. 19 : 20 Feb 1984 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1390)

CBR says:

"Most importantly, with the Free Zone Decree came the opportunity for the inhabitants of Earth to decide their own destiny. The definition of a Free Zone Planet is: "One that may choose its own political or economic affiliation or choose to remain independent and represented thusly in the Grand Council. Such choices to be made in suitable referendum of its populations after representative chosen leaders of the various subgroups of its populations have engaged in free testimony and discussion of the merits and shortcomings of each proposed course of action. The planet shall remain Free Zone until such referendum is correctly and ethically held. A free Zone Planet is under the auspices of the Galactic Patrol Authority of the Sector in which it is situated, their authority limited to their purpose and the definition herein stated.""

* It can’t get any clearer than that.

 

Sector Operations Bulletin No. 19 : 20 Feb 1984 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1390)

CBR says:

"The Markabians left on Earth will be forced to go along with the New Civilization as technically they are Free Zone Citizens…"

* Technically, everyone on the planet is a Free Zone Citizen. Technically, but not in fact.

 

Sector Operations Bulletin No. 20 : 21 Feb 1984 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1391)

CBR says:

"All Free-Zone Citizens of Planet Earth are hereby warned of the conspiracy to suppress personal freedom by the creation of a police state and are enjoined to refuse to cooperate with the steps being taken toward the enslavement of Earth.

* We are being warned that not all is as it appears to be.

 

Technical Briefing Number 6 : (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1615)

CBR says:

"…And of course there is the BEST idea, just like we do it in the Free Zone, sometimes called the Independent Scientology Movement. Why don’t we just REMAIN independent. That’ll be a FREE ZONE PLANET. Hey, now that’s the BEST idea! See?…"

* Here we see the introduction of applying the term ‘Free Zone’ to specific entities within it. But also notice that the HIGHER purpose is not lost - a Free Zone PLANET. It seems that some have already misapplied the purposes of the ‘Free Zone Decree’ with ‘Independent’ movements.

 

TELEPATHY SEMINAR : 27 Oct 1984 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1715)

CBR says:

"…Go to some of the Free Zone Independent Groups and they will give you the processing and training necessary that will help you with these abilities."

* Remember, these are "Independent Groups" WITHIN the Free Zone. They do not make up it’s totality.

 

TELEPATHY SEMINAR : 27 Oct 1984

CBR says:

"…And these places exist in the "independent" - or what we call the Free Zone in Germany and other countries of Europe…."

* Again, these "independents" are being GROUPED under the Free Zone Decree.

 

The New Civilization - OT Convention 88 : 1988 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1401)

CBR says:

"And our vector is essentially to bring the New Civilization awareness to the planet and to present to them the rules of the Free-Zone Decree which means that everyone must be brought up to the point where they can decide for themselves on which way the planet goes. Free Zone Decree and the New Civilization Idea with it are both in that flow. Because the Free Zone Decree applies to all of these. The Free Zone Decree applies to all. IF you read it in Sector 9 you see it does apply to the whole planet. But, the idea we are implementing it with is the idea of a New Civilization, because the old one didn’t work very well."

* Here CBR is again emphasizing the purposes and intents of the Free Zone Decree. The Decree is applicable to ALL.

 

UFO Lecture 2 : 1990 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1405)

CBR says:

"So there’s a third group, a real alternative 3, who control people through truth and freedom so they can control themselves. And that’s what we call The Free Zone. You have around Europe and in Australia and in South America and in the United States several of these places. Now in between all of these are the mass of humanity that are being tried to be controlled by all the other groups. And we know why. And we are the only ones that know why, ‘cause they won’t tell you…";

* The Free Zone is being described as the ‘real alternative 3’. In other words, he is referring to the Free Zone Decree.

 

UFO Lecture 2 : 1990 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1405)

CBR says:

"I think that you might all agree at this point that an idea can influence a whole civilization. And the idea of a free zone planet where everyone can choose for themselves, if they know all the data, I think you’ll agree that that’s a pretty good idea."

* The key phrase: "if they know all the data".

* * *  

That’s the end of the CBR excerpts concerning the Free Zone. Let’s see how the ‘Free Zone’ comes to be redefined over time. The following extracts are samples of that redefinition.

 

THE FREE ZONE : 1992 ca. (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1198)

Electra writes:

"The Free Zone is a huge sprawling loosely connected system of Independent Scientologists, those who were either once part of the Church and left or were booted out, and those who came into Scientology through contact with the Free Zone."

* Here is where the term ‘Free Zone’ begins to be redefined by calling it something else - a "loosely connected system". The ‘Free Zone Decree’ makes no mention of any type of system or order.

What begins to happen here is that the idea of a ‘Free Zone’ ‘system’ is being confused with the actual purpose and intent of the ‘Free Zone Decree’. The proper terminology to use to create a logical relation for understanding purposes, is to say that the ‘Independent Scientologists’ and the ‘loosely connected system’ are both WITHIN the Free Zone, but the Free Zone is NOT those things mentioned.

 

Clear-L LIST : 14 Jun 1993 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=165)

Homer Wilson Smith writes:

"The Church is violently and fanatically opposed to independent Scientology, the so called ‘field’ or ‘Free Zone’…"

* In fact, the ‘field’ has nothing to do with the Free Zone other than of being WITHIN the Free Zone and under the influence of the Free Zone Decree.

 

Joe : 17 Feb 1994 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=55)

Homer Wilson Smith relays:

"About our group in short: It is called "Freie Zone e.V." (Free Zone registered Assoc.). Here an extract of our self-description. It’s members come from various scn-traditions as you might call it. Purpose is not the defence of a single scn-direction but to set up a kind of umbrella organization.

Goals

This association is an initiative by the supporters of cognition-philosophies. A philosophy of cognition has to do with the change and devolpment of persons through self-achieved cognitions…"

* Here we see that Freie Zone e.V. has been established for purposes other the those stated in the Free Zone Decree. 1) Cognitions have nothing to do with spiritual gain. 2) What is the purpose of an ‘umbrella organization’ when the Free Zone Decree already covers it all? 3) This is the killer: "Purpose is not the defence of a single scn-direction". Off track and off Scn.

 

Freezone - clarification of nomenclature : 08 Oct 1996 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=73)

Ralph Hilton writes;

"The "Freezone" is a term coined by W. B. Robertson, a former high ranking Sea Org member. The following is a statement he issued relating to the creation of the "Freezone". Generally people who have left the church and practice scientology in some form or another refer to themselves as "Independent Scientologists" or by the name of their own offshoot group and prefer not to be associated with Robertson’s somewhat unusual set of beliefs. I don’t know of anyone who posts to a.r.s. that is part of the "Freezone" as detailed below. "Elron Elray" is the name W.B.R. uses for Hubbard." (Free Zone Decree followed)

* The prolific newsgroups author, Ralph Hilton, states that "Independents" do not consider themselves a part of the Free Zone. Here he downgrades the Free Zone concept by saying it is a "somewhat unusual set of beliefs". The credibility of the Free Zone Decree is questioned.

 

Re: What’s in a name? was: Re: An E-Meter Story : 10 May 1997 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=1747)

ladyv (Enid) writes:

"…To me Free Zone includes all technologies of the spirit, whether I agree with them or not. It is FREE. If you are a student of the Spirit, you are a Free Zoner to me. This is how I use it and what I mean by it."

* Enid interprets the Free Zone Decree to refer to SPECIFIC technologies of the spirit. Not just one, but ANY ‘technology’ of the spirit. Now Scn’s credibility is questioned.

 

Re: Free Zone : 04 Aug 1998 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=174)

Ralph Hilton writes:

"The term Free Zone has come to include 2 meanings. One is those practicing scn outside the CofS as a fairly generic term. Originally the term was used by Bill Robertson to refer to the organizations he set up."

* Here we have Ralph boldly redefining the ‘Free Zone’. Now, the Free Zone has come to mean something mundane and valueless. Further, he cements the idea that the Free Zone is just an organization that CBR dreamed up. My, how far the ‘Free Zone’ has come!

 

Re: Free Zone : 07 Aug 1998 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=175)

Joe Harrington writes:

"Yes, I agree the generic term "Free Zone" is prone to confusion and misunderstanding. I do a lot of independent research and auditing geared toward the alleviation of the adverse effects of Hubbard’s "standard tech", however I reject being classified in a vague "Free Zone" category."

* In typical black propaganda style, we have supporters coming out with ‘validating’ statements in order to further emphasize their hidden agenda. The Free Zone, as defined by the Free Zone Decree, has now come to mean something completely opposite of it’s purpose and intent. The Free Zone concept has been dragged down from a 7th dynamic activity and smashed into the 1st dynamic, altered, discredited and made ‘valueless’.

 

Re: Free? Zone : 09 Feb 2000 (http://fza.org/fzreflib/docref?ref=26)

Ralph Hilton writes:

"I would say that getting auditing in the FZ is far more dangerous than in the CofS."

* And now the propagandized ‘Free Zone’ is made to be ‘dangerous’. Making an alteration dangerous is not bad in and of itself because that would be close to the truth. But truth is even better than being close to the truth.

The truth is that the propagandized ‘Free Zone’ IS dangerous.

The truth is that the Free Zone Decree defines the Free Zone, and quite clearly. If anything else comes to be called the ‘Free Zone’, then alteration is taking place.

To summarize:

  1. A clear picture of the Free Zone is made.
  2. True to warning, the term ‘Free Zone’ comes to be interpreted as being something else.
  3. That interpretation, being referred to as the actual interpretation, is discredited.
  4. Few understand what the term ‘Free Zone’ means, but most do understand some altered form of it.

The Free Zone, despite all of these attempts at sabotage, has and will continue, to create a free planet where it’s citizens have the full right of deciding their own future.

There are those "who control people through truth and freedom so they can control themselves" and then there are those who control people through lies and deception so that EVERYONE will become a controlled slave.

Time has a way of creating forgetfullness and there are those who use that forgetfullness to help fullfill their own agenda. There is only one way to combat that forgetfulness and the resulting restriction of freedom.

Be ever vigilant.

There is another way of boiling this down. If you are not associated with the Galactic Patrol, in some way, then your motives for a ‘Free Zone’ are suspect, as it is that organization that has the responsibility of ensuring a Free Zone. And if your understanding of the definition of ‘Free Zone’ has come to be what is popularly accepted, then you have strayed off course.

Stay the course.
