ETHICS PROGRAM NO. 1
EXECUTIVE DIRECTIVELRH ED 39 INT23 November 1969
Applies to All Orgs, To All Bases, AOs & SHs
ETHICS PROGRAM NO. 1
To LRH Comms to ACTIVATE
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO GET ETHICS PROTECTION FOR ACTUAL UPSTATS AND PREVENT OPPRESSIVE INFLUENCES ON ORG STAFF MEMBERS.
OBSERVATION: The great majority of staff members are trying to do their jobs. They are impeded when ethics is out in an org.
In 1968 we tended to drop out ethics in the US by granting a moratorium on the US.
We dropped out Sec Checks as a reform measure.
It was commented in Sept. 1969 there were only 3 Ethics Officers on post in all the world.
Stats in some areas are in Danger condition. The second action of this condition is ethics, the first being to handle the situation on a bypass.
Undoubtedly WW is seeking to remedy this situation. However, as the orders below are very standard, nothing in them cancels any WW order and are to be undertaken regardless of any other actions in progress.
MAJOR TARGET: TO GET IN ETHICS IN SCIENTOLOGY ORGS FROM WW ON DOWN TO CITY OFFICES.
1. LRH Comm to see that a full-time ACTING Ethics Officer who can operate an E-Meter, has had good case gain and study record is appointed and on post. IF ONE IS SATISFACTORILY ON POST THE LRH COMM GIVES HIM THESE ORDERS TO EXECUTE AS PRIORITY.
2. LRH Comm to see that the E/O has or does cover the ethics section of the OEC rapidly in addition to handling his post. Until this is done the E/O is to be known as an ACTING E/O.
