The file above was removed from Mega (a cloud service I had been using to provide downloads) on the 20th of April 2015, after a complaint by the Church of Scientology. It is now hosted elsewhere, and you can download it again.
This is a scan of an annotated Sea Org training manual dating from 1990.
The “Sea Org” is a strange organisation. It has no official existence within the maze of corporations that constitutes the Church of Scientology, but nevertheless constitutes the highest executive level.
Although they wear elaborate pseudo-naval uniforms, and perform military ceremonies, the Church characterises them as a religious order and their pay (after room and board) is $75 – usually less.
Although they belong to the highest executive order, they can be ordered to perform years manual labour for the purpose of ‘spiritual rehabilitation’. And the ‘Rehabilitation Project Force’ has been characterised as operating a network of labour camps which violate human rights legislation.
Controversially, Sea Org members sign a contract promising a billion years of service (by returning to their posts after reincarnation). This includes young people, who are actively recruited and assured that Sea Org membership is a superior alternative to higher education.
