TARGETS, DEFENSE

[...]

Experience has shown that defense is only effective when one sorties or attacks.

When we did not give a lot of time and energy and funds to knocking out real enemies we came close to losing the lot.

The errors we have made have been:

[...]

2. Defending on Scn ground.

3. Being reasonable and assigning mild motives to the enemy.

4. Failing to attack early and hard.

[...]

7. Not learning enemy tactics and using and bettering them.

[...]

9. Failing to identify the enemy early and hit him hard.

[...]

TARGETS

The vital targets on which we must invest most of our time are:

T1. Depopularizing the enemy to a point of total obliteration.

T2. Taking over the control or allegiance of the heads or proprietors of all news media.

T3. Taking over the control or allegiance of key political figures.

T4. Taking over the control or allegiance of those who monitor international finance and shifting them to a less precarious finance standard.

T5. Generally revitalizing the societies in which we are operating.

T6. Winning overwhelming public support.

T7. Use all other similar groups as allies.

These, of course, are very long range targets. But it is what must be done to continue the longevity of our organizations.

Our only justification for doing these things is that Scientology is the only game where everyone wins.

[...]

At first glance the targets T1 to T7 are a pretty big handful. But we have to start somewhere. And we might as well start in the direction of the total target as per T1 - T7.

Nearly everything we are doing is already tending in that direction T1 - T7.

We have the advantage of new vital technology and a monopoly on it. New technologies are the things which made progress.

[...]

If we unite all groups into an interplay and use all forces extant and channel them we have a very big chance of winning.

Therefore, from an appreciation of all data to hand and experience it seems that T1 to T7 must be embarked upon.

These give us a multitude of lesser targets. Anything we do in guardian actions to add up to T1 to T7 is beneficial. Things that don't are a relative waste of time.

[...]

We may as well start now and push all we are doing in defensive actions into T1 to T7.
