Q:What is behind those "squirrels" - Ideal Organizations

5. Ideal Scientology Organizations are Fulfilling LRH’s Intention for Churches of Scientology

The Ideal Org program is about delivering standard tech and moving people up the Bridge in high volume.

The sole purpose of our Ideal Org strategy is to be able to deliver ALL the services LRH intended orgs to deliver and to do it in an environment conducive to people rapidly stepping onto and moving on the Bridge. And to expand all orgs to a level they can deliver that quantity and quality of service at once, while also reaching out into its field through Missions and groups, to impact its entire zone.

In lectures and policies, LRH described his vision of an Ideal Org. It is this vision that is now being put into reality, as the following excerpts show:

These are awfully good people in Central Organizations. These are terrific people. At a sacrifice of considerable income and a lot of other sacrifices, these fellows and girls stay on the job and get the job done. One could not render a high enough tribute to them, because it has not been easy and they have done it extremely well. And they're still there and they've still got the show on the road.

And now we're thinking in terms of new buildings and designing new buildings all over the world. In other words, we've kept it there for a long time; now we're going to keep it there with exclamation points. We've even got the designs for these buildings.

Actually, it requires two types of building in one of these Central Organizations. It requires a city building, one that is downtown and rises straight up from the ground to some height. And it requires one out in the country which sprawls all over the place.
– LRH, Lecture 3 Sep 62, YOUR SCIENTOLOGY ORGS & WHAT THEY DO FOR YOU

Now, the org board itself should express itself on the floor of the org. You say, "Well, then the ideal org building would be something that had a big -- three long buildings, that would be the Executive Division and those three buildings would be in sequence, and then they would have buildings which are HCO buildings, and then it would have buildings which were Dissem buildings and then it would have Accounting Sections and then those would be that and go right on down to 6" And that would be absolutely correct. That would be how the org form should be built if you're going to build the building. – LRH, Lecture 4 Mar 72, HOLD THE FORM OF THE ORG PART I - ESTO #7

And when you fully grasp the basic definition of organization and are trying to build, make viable and expand one, you will be very hard on anyone who is discoordinating or blunting the purposes, damaging or omitting the lines and is disestablishing the terminals. You will understand exactly what that person is doing. He is seeking to make the organization less viable and trying to contract and destroy it. So know your enemies.” – LRH, HCO PL 20 Aug 82, ORGANIZATIONAL BASICS

The goal is to make orgs far more attractive to work in and obtain service from. – LRH, LRH ED 307 INT, 1 Dec 79, Ron’s Journal 31, 1980—THE YEAR OF EXPANSION

6. Donations For New Buildings

OT Committees have long been a powerful force for the dissemination of Scientology. LRH set out the purpose of the OT Committee in policy:

The purpose of the OT Central Committee is TO HELP LRH ORGANIZE AND CHANNEL OT FORCES, INTERESTS AND RESOURCES FOR THE GREATEST GOOD FOR SCIENTOLOGY. – LRH, HCO PL 11 Aug 67, OT CENTRAL COMMITTEE

In 1966, LRH laid out the important programs that must be concentrated on to ensure the expansion of Scientology. These include OT Committees obtaining new buildings for our Churches:

The sequence of major programs at Saint Hill:
. . .

To help Scientology dissemination and attack more broadly to prevent such quantities of legal defense. (OT activities program just begun.)
. . .

Buildings for Scientology orgs. (OT activities .)
– LRH, HCO PL 24 Dec 66, Issue I, HOW TO PROGRAM AN ORG, SAINT HILL PROGRAMS

LRH wrote specifically about obtaining contributions and donations directly for the purchase of new buildings:

The most heavily worked-over income point of most civic- minded groups is the obtaining of contributions.

These can be quite sizable.

They do not however, come easily unless the group has a nonprofit status and the patron can thereby deduct it from his income tax.

A group, however, that registers as a charity and is a member of existing nonprofit organizations can obtain contributions.

Governments have been known to contribute large sums to groups.

Contributions should be worked at but should be regarded as an irregular source of income and not counted on for the general running expenses of a group. Rather, they are like an affluence, and major projects are the best use for contributions and the best reason to get them -- such as a new building for the group or a new hall, things like that.
– LRH, HCO PL 2 Dec 68, GUNG-HO GROUPS
