Blog: Miscavige Hunkers in Bunker with G.O. - 2011-11-07
Notes from the bunker
David Miscavige has made much of his role in disbanding Corporate Scientology's infamous harassment arm called the Guardian's Office (GO). In a court declaration of 17 February 2004 Miscavige swore: "When further investigation proved the documents to be authentic, it was made clear that we had no choice but to overthrow the GO and dismiss everyone who had violated Church policy or the law. These activities ultimately led to a complete disband of the GO."
The Guardian's Office purge was essential to Miscavige's power push in the early eighties. Without it he could not have cut Scientology Founder L Ron Hubbard's last existing communication line to the last person with sufficient altitude and respect to actually share ideas and perspectives with him, his wife and Scientology Controller (overseer of Guardian's Office) Mary Sue Hubbard. In Miscavige's own words: "It must be noted that Mary Sue Hubbard believed her position as Controller and as the "Founder's wife" to be unassailable and beyond reproach by anyone but Mr. Hubbard — who was not around at the time, a fact that she was well aware of." Hence, Miscavige assailed both positions, all justified by the alleged crimes of the GO. Crimes that Miscavige characterized as: "There were also instances in which GO staff used unscrupulous means to deal with people they perceived as enemies of the Church — means that were completely against Scientology tenets and policy, not to mention the law."
