Everything in scientology these days is about “ideal” and “golden age” — terms that are bandied about constantly.
Narconon is apparently experiencing a “golden age” that appears to be a measure of how many people die in their facilities, multiplied by the number of lawsuits filed against them, plus the total of zoning variance application rejections x inches of entheta media. It’s straight up and vertical. Hip hip hooray.
We have seen the magnificent “grand openings” of “ideal” Narconons in Clearwater, Baton Rouge and yesterday on the Bunker it was Eslov in Sweden — apparently a one man Narconon that has now attained idealiness.
I have sometimes wondered what these “ideal” Narconons actually look like. We all know the profligate waste and extravagance that goes into “ideal” orgs — but there is no big fundraising pitch for these “ideally” Narconons, which means scientology is paying for them. So, “ideal” has a different meaning here.
So I was most interested when someone sent me this email describing how the next “ideal” Narconon was put together. Begging for volunteers to come and throw up some sheetrock and paint some walls. Hand them some newly layed out and reprinted Purif and Objectives materials. And hey presto, you got yourself an “ideal” Narconon.
And this is exactly what all the “ideal” orgs and “ideal” continental liaison offices and “ideal” missions are. Pure marketing hype. Some have nicer floors and custom designed drapes. But they are facades. It’s all “marketing” and “PR.” Nothing really exists, they just create the impression it does. It’s all gilded turds.
Ideal is a catch-word that has absolutely no meaning. But it is a cleverly repositioned use of a term coined by Hubbard — the “Ideal Org.” And if you read that policy you know these gilded turds bear no resemblance to what is described by Hubbard. Though fundamentalist scientologists make repeated use of the term, they have no clue what an “ideal org” (or NN or Mission or AO or CLO) is other than it is a building with fresh paint.
My name is Jan Blount and I work at the Scientology Management Org in LA. Peggy and Steve Fabos both named you as THE person to contact to get on the needed
The Narconon in Fort Collins CO is receiving the new Golden Age of Tech Phase II tech for Narconon’s and in order to do that are getting a retrofit and posh up. There are Sea Org members there running this but
more help is needed.
They need construction and painting people right now as they are building a bathroom from the studs out and painting accent walls in a number of rooms. In about a week there will be a furniture delivery and they will need assistance
installing that as well.
As this is a Narconon with students in residence they need to have comm before anyone arrives to ensure the confidentiality and privacy of the students of course
I you can get the word out and find some volunteers who know how to paint and are willing to spend some time (a couple of evenings, a couple of days, or a week or whatever) helping to get the Narconon retrofitted and poshed up
to match the new GAT II Tech we really need the help.
Thanks much, Jan

Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, Sussex
HCO POLICY LETTER OF 12 MARCH 1975
Data Series 40
THE IDEAL ORG
(First appeared as LRH ED 102 INT, 20 May 70, referring to evaluation.)
The ideal org would be an activity where people came to achieve freedom and where they had confidence they would attain it.
It would have enough space in which to train, process and administrate without crowding.
It would be located where the public could identify and find it.
It would be busy looking, with staff in motion, not standing about.
It would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public.
Its files and papers, baskets and lines would be in good order.
The org board would be up-to-date and where the public could see who and what was where and which the staff would use for routing and action.
A heavy outflow of letters and mailings would be pouring out. Answers would be pouring in.
Auditors would be auditing in Div IV HGC and Qual would be rather empty. Supervisors would be training students interestedly and 2-way comming all slows.
The HCO Area Sec would have hats for everyone. And checked out on everyone. There would be a pool of people in training to take over new admin and tech posts.
The staff would be well-paid because they were productive.
The Public Divisions would be buzzing with effective action and new people and furnishing a torrent of new names to CF.
The pcs would be getting full grades to ability attained for each, not 8 minutes from 0 to IV, but more like 30 processes. And they would be leaving with high praises.
The students would be graduating all on fire to audit. One could look at this ideal org and know that this was the place a new civilization was being established for this planet.
The thousand or more actions that made it up would dovetail smoothly one with another. And the PR Area Control would be such that no one would dream of threatening it.
Such an ideal org would be built by taking what one has and step by step building and smoothing, grooving in and handling each of its functions, with each of its divisions doing more and more of its full job better and better. The business is always there-the skill with which it is handled and the results on pcs and students is the single important line which makes it possible to build the rest.
The ideal org is the image one builds toward.
It is the product of the causative actions of many. Anything which is short of an ideal org is an outpoint that can be put right.
The end product is not just an ideal org but a new civilization already on its way.
