SOME of L Ron Hubbard’s policy for handling criticism

In this part of my analysis of the cult of Scientology's methods of public
 relations (PR), we're going to look at the cult's advanced (upper level)
 PR techniques. My previous analysis' used materials mainly aimed at 
 application by low level Scientologists, such as the "Volunteer
 Minister". In this piece, we begin to look at PR techniques as
 applied by the Guardian's Office (GO) and the Office of Special
 Affairs (OSA).
 
 Note: Any typos are likely my own.
 
 I find the following paragraph, by L. Ron Hubbard, to be an insightful
 introduction to Scientology's PR techniques. When reading this, remember
 that Scientology is a USA tax-exempt "religion".
 
 Note: The (LRH) in this and following quotes indicates that the
 material in the extract was written by L. Ron Hubbard. 
 
 
                   *** BEGIN FAIR USE EXTRACT ***
 
 (from BOARD POLICY LETTER 30 May 1974 PR Series 24, _HANDLING HOSTILE
 CONTACTS/DEAD AGENTING_, by Alethiea C. Taylor (as ordered by L. Ron
 Hubbard))
 
     It is my specific intention that by the use of professional PR
     tactics any opposition be not only dulled but permanently
     eradicated. This takes data and planning before positive action
     can occur. (LRH)
 
                    *** END FAIR USE EXTRACT ***
