(Excerpt from the booklet [Renate Hartwig: Ref: directreport Nr.1, 2003])
For six years
now the Office for the Protection of the Constitution (OPC) is keeping the Church of Scientology under surveillance.
As methods of political manipulation are not well enough known, neither to
the concerned not to the general public, we want to shed a bit of light
onto one aspect of the intelligence operation targetting the Church of Scientology :
The infiltration of the "Free Zone Association" (Freie Zone e.V.[Ron's Org])
in Munich, Germany.
politician once formulated the socalled "Scientology problem" of
the government briefly and to the point like this:
problem with the Scientologists is that they are not domesticated."
This is an
interesting argument for the unconstitutional campaigning of a government
bound to be neutral in religious matters. The idea that an individual or a
group might not be domesticated puts the hair of a certain type of
politicians on edge. Law or no law - some have the tendency to control, each
and everything within their reach.

mutations) and crossbreeding, changes occur during generations in the build

of the relative weight of the brain, brindling of the coat, development of
wool, shortening of the snout, earlier sexual maturity, increased meat,
milk and egg production, but also increased susceptibility to illness. [Ref: Bertelsmann Lexikon
The Church of Scientology has the know-how to
cancel other-determined "domestication" and replace it with a
sense of responsibility for the common good. This know how is summed up
under the term "Auditing". Man can be free and at the same time
be responsible - but not all desire this.
At 15 December 1995 the Conference of
the Ministers of Interior decided:
the activities of the Scientology-Organization should be continued. In that
it should be considered [...] in particular to punish the practicing of
Auditing through the use of penal law and if necessary to stop it by the
application of security law."
one sentence, the target is formulated which some politicians in Germany have set some years
ago. To a certain extent the Federal Government and State Governments are
working on that since 1968. When all other attempts had been exhausted in
long fights and had proven not to be efficient enough, the political secret
service of Germany, the Office for the
Protection of the Constitution, in 1997 got the order, as the last
available remedy, to stop Scientology with secret service methods.
and very successful tactic of governments and its secret services is to
seemingly ally with the opponent of the opponent, or, of course, to first
create and build up an opponent for the opponent. "Divide et
Impera", divide and rule, is the short-version for such a strategy,
tested since millenia. Cesar wants to conquer Gaul, so he pays the
leaders of some tribes for their benevolency and thus in short time
conquers all of Gaul (France). The US government has done
it in the Indian wars and has fought its battles with some tribes with the
support of some others. The British applied this in India and on the European
continent, the Germans did it in WW II (for example in the Baltic states).
The CIA knows this technique and uses it today on the whole planet.
temporary "ally" of the government, and, respectively its secret
service, is an ally of course only temporarily - till the time the purpose
has been reached. At this moment the tool loses its value and with that
ends financial support, protection, benevolency, praise etc - all the
things that one had to say and do to win this "ally". History
offers plenty of examples.
successful with such a strategy the respective conquerer/government(secret
service depends on traitors or fools. There is plenty of it in each
generation. The technical term for such fools has been coined by Lenin - he
called them "useful idiots".
THE FREIE ZONE e.V.
The goal of
the "Freie Zone e.V." (Free Zone Assoc., Munich) is, according
their official self-description is:
goal is to apply in freedom the technology and philosophy of L. Ron
Hubbard, the founder of Scientology." (Ref: [http://www.freezone.de])
self-description there are additives and explanations, but this is the
It would be
easy to reach this goal if there didn't exist an organized and bitter
opposition of certain interest groups. They succeeded in influencing the
"official Germany", meaning the
Federal Government and State Governments and their organs. And, of course,
the media. What does this "official Germany" says about
the goal of the Free Zone, LRH, the tech and its most important

THE TECH AND ITS APPLICATION "IN FREEDOM"
On December 15, 1995 the Conference of
the Ministers of Interior recommended the implementation of the so called
"sect filter": "In
that it should be considered,
- to make sure that public offices in the area of
fiscal matters include declarations as part of contracts with external
companies, especially consultation and training companies, in which in
suitable cases the companies declares,
1. That the company does not work according to the
technology of L. Ron Hubbard,
2. That neither the staff nor the management are
trained in the technology of L. Ron Hubbard respectively do not take part
in courses and seminars according to the technology of L. Ron Hubbard,
3. That the management objects to the technology of L.
Ron Hubbard for the managing of the company respectively for carrying out
- to create legal regulations for the commercial
activities of organizations like Scientology in the area of psycho-life
- that the health and criminal prosecution authorities
use all possibilities to punish any illegal practice of medicine per the
penal law and if necessary prohibit it per security law, particularly the
practicing of Auditing."
Decision of the Conference of the Ministers of Interior 1995, quoted in the
final report of the "Working Group SC of the Offices for the
Protection of the Constitution" of 1997)
not only was recommended but it was implemented. As an example here a
filter as it is in use in Bremen today:
I, the undersigned, declare
1. That I respectively my company do(does) not work
according to the technology of L. Ron Hubbard,
2. That neither myself nor my employees are trained
according to the technologies of L. Ron Hubbard,
3. That I object to the use of the technology of L.
Ron Hubbard for the managing of my company/the running of my

Thus Bremen - and other German
states and companies - demand of me "that I declare ... that I object

a certain way ...

of the state offices of the OPC installed a few years ago
"hotlines" which could be called to relay any discriminatory
facts about Scientology, unproven and anonymous so that they could gain new
realizations. Ostensibly this is being done to protect the constitution of Germany, our democracy. But
has the OPC ever installed a hotline for organized criminality, for drug
trafficking, for modern slavery or for child pornography? For groups and
subjects which according to the latest trends since years have justified
the surveillance of private apartments, to install video surveillance over
a wide area and to generally restrict human rights according to the salami

That intention is to forbid the application of the tech. Foremost, it was
Beckstein who in 1997 forced through a hesitating Federal Minister of
Interior, Kanther, the observation of Scientology by the OPC. No more

"suspicion-independent controls" and state

key outs. The end of the dream of freedom, power and immortality. That is
the goal of Beckstein, Caberta and a handful of others, and the OPC does
its part as the executing organ.

more than what's visible on the surface and quite more so than wished by
those who care for a good and beautiful life mainly on the first two

first degree in Germany, and there are

else was happening at that time? In 1991, the Church of Scientology carried out a
massive campaign against plans to legalize drugs. 1991, Jeannette
Schweitzer left the Church to then, with the support of the OPC - begin her
travels through the media. In 1991, Ursula Caberta filed a penal complaint
against the Church for "formation of a criminal organization"
(which was later on dismissed), the Federal Office for the Protection of
the Constitution produced its first expertise about Scientology in 1991,
and Renate Hartwig showed up in 1991, to soon be led by the OPC to become a
media star and advisor for agencies and companies. After a few years of
peace, the year 1991 became the starting point for a well prepared and
coordinated campaign against the Church of Scientology in Germany. It culminated
between 1994 and 1996 and has since ebbed down.
overheated atmosphere of 1991, Luebeck founded the "Freie Zone
e.V." and became its president and has since then dictated its
strategy, PR work and legal items in the Free Zone. Nothing better could
have happened to the enemies of the Church of Scientology as a
"competition" offered many possibilities. "Divide et
impera". An organized competition to the Church, it was thought, would
weaken the Church through a loss in membership, the obtaining of
information would be facilitated and the infiltration of the Church with
the help of "scooped off" know-how from trained former members of
the Church could be made to look more real. Speculation? An outrageous undocumented claim?
all. Luebeck was forced - after his relations to the OPC had been made
public on www.freiezone-da.de - to acknowledge them publicly. In a
declaration in a section entitled "How do I know the Free Zone isn't a
cover organization for the Church of Scientology" he says: "Indeed, members of the Free Zone have now and then
worked with state organs to observe the Church of Scientology and their actions." (Ref: www.freezone.de/ro/german/antworten.html)
note: if you click now on this link you will find that this statement has
been deleted. That’s right, after I exposed this on the Internet Luebeck
immediately ran for cover and removed the paragraph. Unfortunately, for him,
I downloaded the original page with the original paragraph included.)
what? Yes. Cooperation with state organs who observe the Church of Scientology. That is the OPC
and its various state offices. First of all, of course, the Bavarian OPC.
How this office evaluates LRH and auditing - see above: Auditing is
"hypnosis, manipulation, fraud". Who if not Bernd Luebeck as opinion leader
of the Free Zone organized, furthered, kept quiet and endured this
cooperation? And how does this cooperation look like? Details are not being
mentioned by the President. On his homepage he speaks of "seeking
contacts with politicians" and "attempting to correct false
impressions". It says they are working together with the OPC. The
details would be of great interest - form and extent and degree of honesty
of the information which was delivered, what payment was agreed upon, which
media representations and articles were organized by the OPC, etc.
are officials and carry out what is being ordered by the political
leadership. To calm down the OPC is thus a wasted effort. The highest chief
of the Bavarian OPC is Gunther Beckstein, for years a big political agitator
in Germany to end the application "of the technology and the
philosophy of L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, in freedom". And
thus the goal of the Free Zone will never be reached. Beckstein is using
his annual OPC reports which he gets since 1998 year after year in the hope
to achieve a ban of Scientology and the application of the technology.

be so naïve as to believe that the attack is against the Church of Scientology
as an organization. The organization as such is totally unimportant. The
organization is only of interest as the necessary means to apply the tech

are limits one should not pass if one wants to retain at least some
integrity. What Bernd Luebeck is engaged in is treason to Scientologists
and members of the Free Zone in the same way. And beyond that to all - who
knowingly or unknowingly - want to go free.
or "USEFUL IDIOT?"
Luebeck aware how destructive his actions are? I don't know. It doesn't
matter for the result of his actions. But if one inspects this question a
bit closer, it actually means "are his justifications so solid that he
himself believes in them and that he can't see anymore, or does he feel an
intentional secret joy in working on the destruction of the
technology?" One is as crazy as the other.
that he does not have any character and no mark, perhaps he has a
"charming" valence but he does not have his own "I" and
for a long time has had no feeling for truth. In 1981, when he was a staff member of the
Church of Scientology, before there was such a thing as the Free Zone in
Germany or elsewhere, he stood by when his own Church was defrauded for 1
million DM in the purchase of a new building. Why? Because he had personal
debts. He had found the new building, participated in the sales talks and
received a commission for his work. He knew that the seller would have sold
the building for 1 million DM less to the Church but he remained silent and
made the Church pay 1 million DM above the market price. As result then
Luebeck put in his pocket a higher commission.
point he had already been for five years a staff member of the Church of Scientology in Munich. The Church was
facing in all of Germany an attack which had
been begun in 1978 by the Federal government and was flanked with dozens of libelous
news articles every week. And he, Luebeck, member of the Guardian Office of
the Church was responsible to help the Church to survive those attacks,
betrayed his friends and colleagues for 1 million DM! Because he "had to pay
his debts". Later, after his fraud had been uncovered, he was upset and
promised to make good the damage so as not to be declared a suppressive
person. He succeeded even if the org did not want to have him as a staff
member anymore and dismissed him - who would have been able to ever trust
him again? How much of that damage did he make good since, how much did he
pay back? Not one cent. Instead he began to criticize the Church (no
wonder) and a few years later he entered into a deal with the Office for
the Protection of the Constitution.
"I reported this data to those staff in the org
who dealt with the sale. I should have reported that the building had
previously been offered for 5 Mill DM. Thus I caused the org a loss of 1
Mill DM plus the commission which I received from Mr. B. S.
useful idiot? One of the two. A more important question is however: How did
he manage to engage in this PR coup? How did he convince his
"friends" in the Free Zone, with what sweet words and
explanations did he sell his treason? How did he succeed to portray this as
a pro-survival action and sell the cooperation with an instrument of the
enemies of Scientology? His argument is: to protect the Free Zone. "We
will give them what they want from us and in exchange they leave us
alone." For how long?
subject of Scientology one doesn't do such deals, and such a president
should not be trusted.
price of freedom is constant alertness; constant willingness to fight back,
said L. Ron Hubbard, there is no other price. Bernd Luebeck, however
believed, there was another one. Going to bed with the state power, giving
up instead of holding the position, giving up ones own integrity instead of
showing muscles and demonstrating courage. His solution for the problems of
life was the selling of his soul for a bowl of peas.

great probability, for money. In the recent scandal concerning the ban of
the NPD it came out that every 7th person in the Federal Board of the NPD
(in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern even the whole Board!) had been bought by the
OPC. The OPC gave many former Scientologists for their performances in the
media "financial support", and they also tried to bribe members
of the Church. That's the level which Bernd Luebeck sank to.
