Up for auction on Ebay is a copy of Magazine Articles For Level 0 Checksheet, an obscure Scientology book that contains two of the most quoted and telling passages ever written by L. Ron Hubbard. The directives in this book are followed by Scientology today, and drive much of their efforts in lawsuits, and against critical books and movies.
The DEFENSE of anything is UNTENABLE. The only way to defend anything is to ATTACK, and if you ever forget that, then you will lose every battle you are ever engaged in, whether it is in terms of personal conversation, public debate or court of law. NEVER BE INTERESTED IN CHARGES. DO, yourself, much MORE CHARGING, and you will WIN. And the public, seeing that you won, will then have a communication line to the effect that Scientologists WIN.
The book is quoted extensively in Exhibit G of the Fishman Affidavit, one of the first public descriptions of the OT3 Xenu story. The book also contains this famous passage:
The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is not authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly.
