Gerry Armstrong letter about LRH biography

November 25, 1981: Gerry Armstrong, working on an official biography of Hubbard for Scientology, writes to a fellow high-ranking Scientologist, Cirrus Slevin, expressing concerns about the discrepancies between the official LRH biographies and what he's learning from reading LRH's diaries and other sources: " ... nothing published about LRH, of whom nothing is known, is a fact ...

Shiona Fox-Ness Resignation Letter

January 27, 1984: Shiona Fox-Ness resigns from Scientology after five years in the Sea Org. Her resignation letter describes a regime ruled by terror and psychological manipulation: "In my experience, staff are degraded, intimidated and oppressed and are rendered robotic and manageable by fear tactics. I have witnessed the disillusionment, degradation and departure of hundreds of good, honest and highly dedicated staff members who have suffered through successive purges, experiencing cruel and inhumane treatment. These individuals have been severed from friends and families, their only crime being an expressed desire to see an end to injustice, suppressive and dictatorial behavior, and the blatant corruption of the tech and policy of Scientology. Staff are routinely handled with ruthless force, psychotic screaming, obscene shouting and absurd programs. Lies, trickery and treachery abound."
